The Clans RPG A forum for roleplaying games. 2016-04-30T21:14:46-04:00 http://www.rpgclans.org/feed.php?f=8 2016-04-30T21:14:46-04:00 2016-04-30T21:14:46-04:00 http://www.rpgclans.org/viewtopic.php?t=144&p=606#p606 <![CDATA[Factions and Groups • The Valkyries]]> Name: The Valkyries

Type: Mercenary Company

Official Logo: . In purple.

Leader: Viola Winchester

Background:
The Valkyries first appeared in Japan, already fully formed, about two years ago, and are swiftly making their way through the ranks of preferred mercenary companies. They will accept contracts from anyone, though associations with the United States and its citizens are extremely rare, and all contracts are accepted on a case-by-case basis, with leader Viola always having the final say. The origins of their starting finances, equipment, or indeed most of their members are largely unknown, but they're damn good at what they do, and their small size makes them a considerably less expensive alternative to most companies of a similar nature.

Members:
Viola Winchester: Leader and founder of the Valkyries. And very clearly American.

Emily (Em) Peterson: The company's tech specialist and hacker. She can be very easily distracted by her computers, and very single-minded while working on them. The least effective in combat, for obvious reasons, though she has received training. American.

Michael Bailey: In charge of recon and intelligence, and a talented sniper. Not bad in a close-quarters fight, either. Frequently razzes his boss, and the rest of the team as well. Something about his accent suggests Canadian origins (well, that and the fact that he's fluent in Quebecois French).

Rose Taylor: The official Valkyries pilot; she specializes in helicopters, but can fly just about anything if given enough time to study the controls. Rose is very cool-headed, loyal, and has a great deal of confidence in her boss. The British accent is very telling.

Melanie (Mel) Williams: Another member of the Valkyries. Possibly Canadian.

Samantha (Sam) Miller: The Valkyries' explosives expert, and a bit of an adrenaline or action junkie. American.

Kelsey (Kels) McAdams: A member of the Valkyries. Her accent pretty clearly labels her a Bostonian.

Daniel (Dan) Jones: The Valkyries' official driver; the man's an artist behind the wheel of a car. Not bad in combat, either. He could be from either Canada or the US, it's hard to tell; possibly his background includes both.

Notes:
-When Viola tells her Valkyries to ride, it means retreat and fall back to base.

-All members of the Valkyries have the company logo tattooed on the right side or back of their neck. It's a definite sign of just how committed they are to the group, and perhaps even suggests they've been together as a team longer than the world's been aware of them.

The Mikawa Clan is matriarchal, always tracing its line through the females, as that's the only way to be truly certain they're Mikawa. As a result, men typically take on their wives' names upon marrying into the clan.

Abilities/Powers:
The Mikawa have been known to produce very powerful spiritualists, and children begin their training as onmyouji and kuro miko/dark mages at an early age. They are well versed in the use of dark magic and demonology, and some clan members have shown great skill in the art of divination as well. The most powerful living member of the clan was Mikawa Sayuri, before she left at the end of Sad Factions In Snow.

Noteworthy Clan Members:
Mikawa Azami: a powerful kuro miko and onmyouji, and founder of the clan. Some say she sold her soul to a demon in exchange for her powers, but the validity of this is unknown. Deceased.

Mikawa Takeshi: a very powerful dark mage, but unremarkable onmyouji. He attempted to seize control of a good portion of Medieval Japan with an army of demons, and very nearly succeeded. Deceased.

Mikawa Katsumi: Sayuri's mother and previous head of the Mikawa Clan. She was the second most powerful living onmyouji and kuro miko in the Clan, bested only by her eldest daughter. Deep down, she resented Sayuri for this. Defeated and killed by Sayuri.

Mikawa Tsuyoshi: Sayuri's father. Though coming from a powerful clan himself, he took his wife's name upon marrying into the family. He wasn't an onmyouji, but did possess impressive power as a dark mage. Killed by Shiri.

Mikawa Yuichi: Sayuri's older brother. He was his mother's intended heir, but that didn't make him any less of an idiot so far as Sayuri was concerned. Killed by Shiri.

Mikawa Shoji: Sayuri's twin brother and best friend. He died a few days after their 13th birthday, leaving her to face their family alone - and was killed by Shiri, as per Death's orders.

Mikawa Sayuri: the most powerful living onmyouji and kuro miko in the clan. She left them after a brief stint as clan head, but continues to use their name (both because it has a delightful way of opening doors in high-society throughout the world, and because it keeps the government from wondering where all her money comes from).

Mikawa Momoko: Sayuri's younger sister. Her greatest power lay in her irresistable beauty, which had been magically enhanced since she was five years old. Killed by Shiri.

Mikawa Chikako: Sayuri's "baby" sister. Her powers were unremarkable and showed no sign of improving, and she possessed a weak spirit. As the "baby" of the family, she was quite spoiled in spite of this. Killed by Shiri.

Mikawa Kaoru: Known as Niigata Kaoru outside the family, in order to properly keep up appearances as Hikaru's wife. Kaoru is Sayuri's cousin (the daughter of Katsumi's younger sister), and the current leader of the Mikawa Clan; she is also ruling over the Niigata Clan through her husband, whom she has been controlling through the careful use of magic and potions since their honeymoon. Nowhere near as powerful an onmyouji or kuro miko as her cousin, she is nonetheless dangerously clever, and knows exactly how best to use what powers she does possess.

Mikawa Naoko: The first-born daughter of Niigata Hikaru and Kaoru, but she rarely ever bothers to use her father's family name. In spite of being female (while the Niigata are a patriarchal clan), and younger than her twin brother by several minutes, Naoko is being groomed to rule both the Niigata and Mikawa clans as per Mikawa tradition. Her abilities are roughly equal to her mother's, and she's no less clever (albeit more than a little spoiled, and extremely proud). Naoko is roughly the same age as Amaya.

Mikawa Kazuo: The first-born child of Niigata Hikaru and Kaoru (and several minutes older than his twin sister, Naoko), Kazuo uses both family names depending on which serves him best at any given moment. He resents his sister's being chosen as heir over him, and it has made him a bitter and angry boy. Kazuo is roughly the same age as Amaya.

Officially they don't exist. They hold a floor that has no elevator access and the it's stair well entrance is four floors below its physical location (M$ Builders, funny guys.) Unofficially, they are lead by Aleksandr Stone (who doesn't have a bio yet.) and take pride in the protection of the ken...kem...kemomo...eared peoples and poorly done drawings of male anatomy on police property.

Vehicles:
Classic vehicles restored and modified to Largoist standards. Either provide the donor vehicle, or pay a premium for them to source one. Takes a few weeks, but they're built to customer specifications.

Ex-soviet armoured vehicles delivered on demand for common examples, but with longer wait times for rarer vehicles.

Armoured SUVs delivered from stock, or customised to order.


Weapons and ammunition:
Delivered on demand from their extensive stocks, even for rarer examples. As the patent holders for the Pancor Jackhammer automatic shotgun, they're the exclusive suppliers of it. Buy one today, shut those annoying birds up!

Ammunition delivered in all quantities, from a few clips or a couple of boxes, up to enough bullets to wage a war. Larger orders take longer to deliver, and are less flexible in where they can be delivered to.

Ammunition can also be delivered singly, in all cases. Just call up and designate a target, and your purchase will be delivered to it. You can designate a set time, or simply request it ASAP. Precision and timing costs more. Available in all sizes, from a delivery dart, right up to cluster munitions, or a fuel-air explosive dropped from a transport plane. Nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons are NOT available, no matter how much you pay.
Now the exclusive supplier of air-dropped mines, due to international treaty. Defend your lawn today!


Contraband:
Anime, manga, pocky, and even Mountain Dew or moonshine. Available by delivery, collection, or through the extensive retail network.
The FGTL does NOT offer narcotics or prescription drugs.


Deliveries:
Can be ordered at a specific time and place. More precision and accuracy adds more cost, and may add to the minimum time to delivery. All deliveries of goods must be signed for in person, witnessed by the delivery operative. Also available are deliveries to your phone signal, for when you really don't know where you are.
Harm to delivery systems or operatives will be added to your bill. You break it, or them, you bought it.
Warning: Not liable for collateral damage incurred during deliveries. This includes roofs.

Collection:
Arranged at FGTL HQ, or at distribution locations around the city.

Extraction:
For yourself or others. Helicopter, ground vehicle, or low-flying aircraft, simply make your choice ahead of time. Specify a drop-off location, or simply leave the destination blank and be taken to the exclusive holding area.


Placing your order:
Either drop by FGTL HQ in person for a consultation on your needs, use the dedicated 24/7 call center (available in many languages), or simply log onto the website, fill out the forms, and select your order from the menus.
