The German facility for magical girls was arguably the top in the country and second place in the world for magical girl research, outside of the top secret ones, and as such it held a lot of promising subjects. Twenty of them, a small handful compared to the amount of girl's that had gathered here from all over the world, were now making their way into a rather boring and bare room made up of four metal walls in the shape of a box. Off to the right of the exit, and one of the only items in the room, was a wooden desk lined with paperwork, some pens, a few chairs, and a couple of stiff standing adults standing behind it, some in science coats while others had on outfits militaristic in design, firmly pressed and with polished shoes. A girl, appearing to be around fourteen years old or so with shoulder length pale brown hair sat in a seat, her hands resting lightly on the table. She was clothed in a brown colored fancy, frilly outfit that emanated a detectable energy that could only be determined as being one thing; her magical suit. It was what only a magical girl had the power to do, cloaking herself in magic that forms into an outfit that enhances her magical abilities and provides a barrier of defense around her entire body that could fend off attacks as well as any bulletproof armor around, perhaps even more so. It was what turned normal girl's into walking tanks, and judging by this girl's detectable power she was one of the better ones. Her bored expression and soft facial features betrayed this face. She looked like a girl in math class who was about to doze off.
Other girl's about her age, although most younger more so then older, having no lower age limit besides not in diapers, were slowly but surely forming into a single file line leading up to the table as requested by one of the adults. Despite including some talented individuals they were still only children, and as such there was some effort involved to get them all to pip down and do as requested. They were slightly better at it then normal girls their age, but they were not yet fully trained soldiers despite what a lot of people view them as. That was one of the problems with their young age, but due to their power weakening over time it was a necessary problem to have, at least until gene therapy could better handle the stress that was placed on the genes responsible for their magical powers. They could now extend their magical girl genes "lifetimes" somewhat, but as for now they still lost their power at increasing rates once they hit their twenties. The magical girl's were often teased at being grandmas by around 18 or older.
Although most of the girl's were German, being a facility found in Germany, they were not the only ones in this room. If not German then most were still European, but there were even a few out as far as Brazil, only one fitting that description. There was also only one Japanese, a fact even stranger because the Japanese facility was number one in the world, so some found it odd that one of them would have bothered traveling all of the way to Germany. Japan and Germany were both neutral, not necessarily allies any more but not enemies either. Maybe they had sent her as a gift to secure better relationship status, as some nations were known to do? Or maybe as a spy, as some magical girl's seemed the think, eyeing her with distrust. That distrust was overshadowed mostly by the dislike of the girl's from the former allied countries during WW2, however, as they had gotten heavily involved in the magical girl business after their victory, forcing the information out of the losers and trampling over them, Germany in particular had it really bad for a while. Luckily for them they had elected a new Prime Minister named Bernhard Ackermann, who's wife was an influential magical girl, and together their strong backbone allowed him to unite east and west Germany to a common cause and get them back into respectable standing. The UN still did not trust them, and he didn't trust them back, but at least there was a momentary peace where all the did was dislike each other and not outright slaughter each other. Rather then do that they could both use each other, which is exactly what was going on in this facility. It was a delicate, but fruitful, balance to maintain for the sake of the all important magical girl research that was necessary to maintain your status as a superpower in this new, chaotic world. Things were like a Cold War, with magical girls rather then missiles, but people couldn't help but feel that things were quickly heating up.
The Japanese girl, Hisakawa Ayame, stood quietly in line with no friends to talk to. She usuallyy had an emotionless expression on her face, only once showing a bit of emotion in the form of irritation when the two girls in front of her wouldn't stop chatting and giggling until one of the adults sternly lectured them to knock it off. The fifteen year old had long, plain black hair and wore a short sleeved one piece black jumpsuit, the bottom portion reaching down to her mid thighs. Although not tight enough to be revealing, it had very little looseness to it in order to allow her magical girl uniform to better appear over it. Unlike in the magical girl anime, their normal clothing isn't able to just vanish into sparkling light and then conveniently reappear after they untransformed. In real life they simply layered their magic energy on top of what they were originally wearing, meaning that they had to have on an outfit that allows them to do so. Due to not being able to wear two pairs of shoes at once they had to remember to not wear any beforehand or else their new shoes might very well shred the ones they were currently wearing to pieces, just as it would with any bulky and baggy clothing that got in the way. Also, it might look silly wearing pajamas or something underneath your uniform, if it's not covered up, so there are obviously restrictions on appropriate attire. You'd think it a joke, but it's happened a few times where someone forgot these facts. One even thought she could just use her magical girl uniform as normal clothing, forgetting that you had to put someone on underneath for when you untransformed. Let's just say she didn't do that again.
Now that everyone was at proper attention one of the older women began to explain the situation. "This is a mock battle. You, team Valkyrie, are up against Team Odin. I hope that you're all able remember your teammates, because during real battles you must know them well, often without any actual uniforms to tell you who's who. The object is to incapacitate more of the enemy team in 10 minutes, either by KO's or otherwise making them unable or unwilling to continue the fight. Lissa here is able to "un-lethalize" your equipment and magical powers so that the most you can do is knock your enemy out, but don't get a false sense of invincibility. You can still accidentally knock people's heads into walls or be hit by collapsing rocks, for example, and if you are weakened enough that can cause serious bodily injury or death, so you must still use discretion. The "un-lethalization" effect lasts for 30 minutes, so make absolutely sure that you do not use any attacks past that point, which the battle should already be over with by then anyways. Is everybody clear?"
"Yes ma'am!" The girl's affirmed enthusiastically in unison. At least they got that part down. Some found it kind of cool when they all chanted at the same time like that, drawing some slight smiles from the crowd.
"Then transform and allow Lissa to contact you so that she can place her spell. Afterwards, proceed into the battlefield we have made for you, a ruined city. Wait in your designated starting area and an air horn will sound that will announce when the battle has begun."
"Yes ma'am!" They chanted again.
With that explanation over with the line began to dwindle as Lissa worked her magic on everyone, around 20 seconds each on average. It was Hisakawa's turn within only a couple of minutes. As requested she unleashed her magic from deep within her, cloaking herself in a purple and black mist of visible energy then coalesced with a flash into her magical uniform. It was an oriental style purple and black long sleeved top that extended down into a short skirt. Her legs became shrouded in black tights that pressed her jumpsuit underneath tightly against her skin, but not enough to cause any damage or ruin the material. Her feet were now contained inside black slippers with very thin soles, although that didn't matter because it was tough enough not to break against any rocks that she would step on. In her right hand formed a katana with a glittering silver blade, although the glittering died down moments after it had appeared. She extended it out so that the girl could place her hands on both the blade and on her wrist.
"It is done," the girl said monotonously after a couple of seconds. Luckily she only had one weapon to have to "un-lethalize" that time rather then the girl's with a bunch of bullets. Hisakawa nodded, slipped her katana into it's sheath, and then walked out of the open doorway. She could see a couple girl's standing around a red flag chatting to themselves. In front of them were some tan colored buildings that appeared to be on a verge of collapse, and likely would over the course of the battle should any strong magical attacks hit it. Maybe that woman had been right about this still being dangerous. Well whatever, Hisakawa wasn't nervous at all. She had survived perfectly fine in her previous mock battles and most of the time was on the winning side. She has been knocked out once before, but as the woman explained that wasn't a big deal. She didn't have much of an ego so wasn't overly bothered that someone had got the better of her, but she did want to do better in the future. She wondered if the girl who had done that to her was on the other team? Maybe she could return the favor this time. She let out a slight smile for the first time today.
With nothing else to do and no friends to talk to, she waited for everyone else to finish getting ready so that the mock battle could begin.
