So like Gundam Build Fighters ended. And god knows I bloody love Gundam Build Fighters. Enough to come up with my own Build Fighter.

So this is Rei and the Jegan Elite.

Kisaragi Rei

A 14 year-old build fighter hailing from Osaka. Her parents are career workaholics which often left her to be babysat by her gunota hobby store owner uncle. This resulted her growing up to be quite a Gundam nut with advanced modeling skills despite her age.

A big fan of EFSF grunt units. After having witnessed kids muscle their way through Gunpla battle by using high-end Gundam types, she decides to show the world just what Jegans are capable of.

Normally very shy, but adopts an alter-ego along with an outfit, contacts and wig in gunpla battle. Has a relentless and aggressive battling style which has led her to being nicknamed ‘The Black Storm’.

RGM-89E Jegan Elite

Originally just a basic RGM-89 Jegan, it has been improved and upgraded after being damaged and broken in many battles. Its upgrades are a gradual result of the many battles that Rei has fought. It has a large number of weapons built in and utilizes the RGM-89De Jegan[ECOAS Type]’s sensors to aid in targeting. Also boasts high defense thanks to armour plating from the RGM89S Stark Jegan. To offset the additional weight, it has additional verniers all over its frame along with an array of powerful thrusters from the RX-78GP01Fb and RX-78GP03.

Weapons:

  • 4x Head Vulcan – Though the ECOAS Type Jegan’s head lacks vulcans, the Elite has been customized to mount a quad of vulcan pods.
  • 2x Foot Vulcan – Sourced from the Slaughter Dagger.
  • 2x Shoulder Machine Cannon – Sourced from the God Gundam with its own customized housing. Were installed by Rei after a battle where she lost both arms.
  • 2x Arm Gatling Gun – Sourced from the Gundam Alex with its own customized housing. She created the customized housing after some trouble with the Alex’s where they would fail to open. Were installed after a battle against I-Fields.
  • 2x Elite Beam Boomerang – A customized weapon based on the beam boomerangs from the Sword Strike. Mounted on the backpack where they can swivel forward and act as beam guns. Also functions as a high powered beam saber comparable to a beam Zanber. When thrown, they can also be shot with a beam weapon for an effect similar to Kamille’s ‘Beam Confuse’ attack. Were installed by Rei after a battle where she lost both arms. She came up with the ‘Beam Confuse’ attack after a bad match against a Nu Gundam.
  • 2x Elite Beam Saber – Customized beam sabers built from the Byarlant Custom’s mega particle cannons that are mounted on the hips. They function as rapid fire beam guns when mounted. Were installed by Rei after a battle where she lost both arms.
  • 2x Beam Saber – Standard beam sabers mounted on the knees. Can swivel and be detached.
  • 2x Anti-Armor Penetrators – Rocket propelled throwing knives stored on the hips. Sourced from the Windam. They have been upgraded with a coat of reflective paint, allowing them to penetrate beam shields. Installed by Rei after having some troublesome fights against beam shields.
  • 4x Armor Schneider – Hidden combat knives mounted on the feet and heels. Sourced from the Blue Frame. nstalled by Rei after having some troublesome fights against beam shields. Also has a coat of reflective paint.
  • 2x Palm Beam Cannon – Sourced from the Destiny Gundam. Installed by Rei after losing a grappling match with a Shining Gundam.
  • 2x Elite Carbine – Customized weapon built from the Zeta’s beam rifle and the Jesta’s carbine. Capable alternating between a weaker rapid fire and a more powerful single shot mode. Can also generate a beam saber from the barrel. Also mounts an underslung grenade launcher from the Duel’s beam rifle.

Tamae02

Updated Tamae’s design. Made the kimono more form fitting, even if they aren’t a form fitting sort of garb. Courtesans probably wear a thinner tighter variation or something. A water lily on the sash cause mizu shobai. Maybe all girls of the trade wear a water lily as some form of pseudo uniform/identification.

She looked too unassuming so I gave her narrower slanty eyes. I was kinda on the fence for her personality. She was going to be more demure, but then I decided she probably needed more attitude. A rebellious attitude that led to her being drugged by force. She eventually manages to fight off her addiction after a number of tries at going cold turkey. She stashes away subsequent doses given to her for use as bargaining chips with the other girls. Still pretends to be an addict and sniffs flour with her clients. Learns to be a great actress.

Maybe she prefers to be silent, but learns all sorts of talk cause survival skills. The type that doesn’t talk often but whose words carry more weight?

goro01

The hard boiled Tengu cop. I cannot draw men. Or floppy clothing.

Calling him Goro for now. Probably not even his real name. Currently masquerading as the son for some rich landowner from somewhere. All an elaborate cover story that allows him to blow taxpayer’s money on booze and hookers. All in the name of monitoring crime!

Basically taking it one step at a time, getting to know people, getting in the good books of the right people and building up his contact list. Doing facebook the hard way. Establishing himself as a potential business partner perhaps, which allows him access to drug routes out of the city. Which promptly gets them raided.

He would keep his real identity hidden from his newfound accomplices within the city. He’d just feed them some cock and bull story about being a business man and making money, and buy their loyalty. With drugs and funds on the lower end, and with status and business promises for the higher end.

Also keeping tabs on the various organizations around, and subtly manipulating who gets to be in power via funding or accidental deaths. Make sure the various gangs fight amongst themselves. Prevent a consolidation of power or monopoly over fairy drug trade.

As Tamae manages to climb up the hierarchy, he hopes to use her to gain indirect control of the organization.

Kago no Keshiki (Working Title?)

•December 29, 2013 • 1 Comment

So new story idea. If this was a game…. it would be a visual novel or something cause I can’t think of it being a game. Just gonna hammer out some ideas here. Title’s a reference to something Yoshiwara related.

Setting is a bizarro Japan(world for that matter) where everybody’s a anthropomorphic folktale creature of some sort. Cause what better way to emphasize social/racial divides? Or I just like fluffy fox ears. Meant to be some sorta noir-esque story involving drugs, with some unintentional parallels to the opium trade in China cause I don’t know.

A myriad of races live in bizarro Japan, mostly well known stuff like kitsune, tanuki, kappa and what have yous. The tengu control most of the government and administration. The royal family are dragons. There would be a bit of history where the oni ravaged the land in a number of territorial wars. Stuff.

Story takes place in the port city of uh… Shiokaze(goddamn names). A growing port city due to the arrival of the mysterious faeries. Their arrival brought trade, commerce, culture and…  narcotics. Heralding the start of a drug related crime drama of some sort.

ImageHeroine of this story, the kitsune Tamae. A courtesan working in a port city. Her father died when she was young, and her mother became addicted to faerie narcotics and she was sold off to a brothel to cover drug-related debts. Why does her kimono have frills you ask? Fairy fashion. Shut up.

The brothel she works in belongs to a syndicate which controls drug trade and prostitution rings. The working girls are often forcefully turned into addicts, ensuring their obedience and further plunging them into debt. The brothels also double as drug dens, so the girls just get dragged into the mess either way.

The story essentially entails her turning into an informant after a chance meeting with a Tengu cop.

The tengu cop works is an agent working bizarro Japan’s equivalent of the DEA. Charged with investigating the parties involved with fairy drugs, damage control and decapitating leadership when appropriate. Probably some kinda master spy and arsehole extraordinaire. Tengu Bond?

Tengu cop and Tamae scratch each other’s backs. Tengu cop gets more info, Tamae climbs up the ranks of a criminal organization and the benefits for both sides increase until things get dangerous. Mixed in, we get in-syndicate fighting, political interference, bribery, sex, drugs, going cold turkey and theft of carriages, rickshaws and other modes of wheeled transportation. And probably a climactic situation where they gotta kill each other.

Bunch of character ideas include –

Tanuki onee-san. An older sister type character who’s Tamae’s senior in the brothel. Was a rich educated girl but got sold off when her father’s trade business collapsed. Kindly and honest to a fault. One of the few literate girls in the brothel and teaches Tamae how to read. Because of her education, she’s one of the few girls not addicted so she can better use her head to help run the place. Voiced by Mamiko Noto.

Neko bitch-san. Top courtesan in the brothel. Sorta rival character to Tamae. Nyan nyan motherfucker.

Oni-yojimbo. A grizzled old veteran of some oni-related war who has lost his horns, and thus his honour. The muscle in the brothel. Probably has drinking problems and/or gambling debts. Beats up rowdy customers and takes names. Becomes indebted to Tamae at some point for some reason.

Usagi-mama. Elderly rabbit woman who’s the ‘mother’ of the brothel. Getting on her years in age while being a hopeless drug addict who’s constantly off blowing the brothel’s earning on visiting… another brothel. Cause handsome male prostitutes. Leaves much of the work to Tanuki onee-san while she’s off cougaring. Gets high off the brothel’s goods and falsifies account reports to the syndicate. Which will eventually lead to her downfall.

Usagi-lieutenant. A mid boss of the syndicate with higher ambitions. Doesn’t think much of the brothel at first, since its just one of a bunch he has to overlook. Tamae eventually catches his eye and impresses him with her toppling of Usagi-mama. He ends up feeling some kinship with Tamae since toppling is also part of his own ambitions. Together they embark on an adventure of toppling and promotions. And probably gets toppled himself cause rabbits are an important part of a fox’s diet. Maybe all the important people are fox-prey youkai.

Kitsune-kunoichi. One of Tengu cop’s partners in cri- justice. Another rival character for a different stage of the story? Charmer extraordinaire. Extra fluffy tail grants a +10 to sneaking. Until it knocks over porcelain.

Mujina-shinshi. A patron of the brothel in search for more… intellectual pleasures. Totally not in it for the lower half of the body. Well connected and loaded. Pretentious poet.

Jorogumo-chan. Seamstress of the kimonos that the girls wear. Eternally 16. Gropes girls with her eight limbs in the name of taking measurements. Not a lesbian(lie).

Now to hammer out more designs and never accomplish anything with this. And then draw girls in random outfits.
