Here are my first two stories of my character Sange. I have been working on my costume more and more and my character seems to flesh out as much as his story.
The people of the world that number 463,720,396 lived in have no names. They are known by numbers. The number is assigned at birth and they are only known by that number. Number 463,720,396 lived a normal life in this world. He worked with technology and had an interest in developing new technologies.
Number 463,720,396 carried a small pistol for defense. Many people carried a weapon of some type because there were fights constantly breaking out everywhere. Most of these weapons were electronic. A bomb created some time before was constructed to help "defend" against others. This bomb was capable of plunging the world into darkness as well as destroying all electronics using an EMP blast. This bomb was foolishly set off in an attempt to "quell the violence." Number 463,720,396 was heading home when the bomb exploded. Luckily, he was far enough away from the blast to survive, but he knew what type of bomb it was and knew the consequences. He knew he would need a weapon other than his sidearm since it would soon be useless. He started to wonder where he could find a more conventional weapon when he started to recall his father teaching him basics of using a katana. He then remembered that the local museum had just acquired a diamond bladed katana. It was covered in nano machines to keep the blade sharp forever. The nano machines would stop functioning as soon as the EMP blast hit it, but the blade's diamond would last longer than steel. Number 463,720,396 knew he needed some form of protection because this world would descend into chaos without technology.
Once he made it to the museum, he noticed the doors were unlocked, forgetting that all electronics were knocked out. He headed inside and went to the katana exhibit. The name of the katana was bright from the lingering sun that would soon be covered in dust. Number 463,720,396 marveled at the name, "Sange." He broke the glass with a nearby bench and took the katana along with the scabbard. He immediately ran outside and noticed the darkening of the sun.
A bright light began to shine behind Number 463,720,396 as he stared at the sun. He immediately drew the katana in the direction of the light out of fear and was met by a unique looking weapon. The person holding the weapon started talking in his language and said, "If you want to live and escape this world, come with me." Number 463,720,396 was afraid to leave his world, but he knew he could not stay because the world would be covered in darkness soon. He told the stranger that he would join him and the stranger led him to onto the curious ship that was emitting the light. As soon as he was aboard, the stranger called out to another, "Warp up out of here." Before number 463,720,396 could ask what he meant, the world disappeared and another one appeared around the ship. This one had a beautiful sky and four bright suns. The stranger then asked, "What is your name?" Number 463,720,396 decided in that moment he did not want to be known by a number anymore and said as he looked at his katana, "My name is Sange."
Sange did not know at the time that he had joined the Airship Nincols. The Nincols is an airship capable of traveling through time and different dimensions, led by its captain, Yano. The time and dimensional drive used in the Nincols is a very rudimentary design. It takes a lot of energy to travel and must recharge after every one or two warps. It is filled with a lively crew of mercenaries seeking both contracts and treasure.
The stranger that met Sange and asked him to come along walked up to Sange and asked him, "What kind of skills do you have?"
Sange answered, "I am good with all manners of technology."
Happy with his answer, the stranger said, "I was hoping you would be good with technology, my name is Yano, welcome to the Airship Nincols. You will be a part of the tech crew who keep up the ship. Dels, I'll need you to show Sange here how to handle the katana he has. The way he stands and holds that katana shows he is not proficient with it."
A tall, muscular man came over and introduced himself, "My name is Dels, and I am the ship's weapon master. I know how to wield any type of weapon, from swords to hammers to pistols to miniguns. I can teach you everything you need to know to master that katana you have. Could I see it?" Sange was nervous about handing him the katana, but he decided to give it to him. Dels took the katana from the scabbard and was amazed by the build. "This is an amazing weapon. It will serve you well. How are you with that sidearm?"
"I can hit a target from about 30 arms length away." Sange answered proudly.
"You will do some target practice whenever you can to improve." Dels said in retort.
I have more stories on my blog in my info if anyone is interested in my stories and sorry for any grammar mistakes, lol.
