Recently I decided to add another character to Stray who only appears in the beginning and once again at the end. I don't have a name for her yet, the only info on her I can currently give is that she is a police officer and maybe married to a doctor. Her main purpose is something of a guardian angel. However her help is rejected by Alice because of her somewhat self destructive nature. I also have yet to figure out why Alice is somewhat self destructive, either because of some pride related issue or guilt over something she did when she was younger.
I like the idea of telling it like a police drama, right now I have a small number of events planned that I try to work in at the most appropriate times.
I'd also like to take this post to mention another story that I posted about here long ago but has long since changed. This story is several years old and has gone and will probably undergo many more changes. The story may be part of a sort of series of stories but I'm not certain if I want to do that.
I should also mention that many of the idea involved in this story are unknowingly borrowed from some animes/mangas. The first being the main character "Angel", who is created in a lab and escapes, much like characters in Chobits (not sure on this one) and Elfen Lied. The second being the secondary main character Ark, who has a right arm that can change shape, size and length like Ed of Full Metal Alchemist. However Ark's arm is not a prosthetic of any sort, it is limited by items within his reach which he may assimilate temporarily into his arm. His arm is also not metallic, but is somewhat similar to that of a crustacean in terms of construction, but still has and elbow, wrist and hand with four fingers and thumb.
Heaven on Earth Adult situations and Intense violence
Story (only going to give a small amount of info to keep this post from getting too big, I'll elaborate some more in further posts)
Heaven on Earth is a sort of sci-fi/fantasy but becomes more fantasy towards the end. The story starts with the creation of the main charcter Angel, who is created from genetic material of an angel along with material from from an albino cat in the lab (reason for this is because an angel can only be born from death, and using material from an earthly entity that is not guilty of the original sin and I also wanted to seperate Angel from humanity by giving her non human features and needed an excuse to do so). She escapes and meets Ark; a human like creature from the land of Mu who suffers from partial amnesia and only knows his first name, how to use his arm's abilities and how to change form (something I'll go into detail in a later post).
After a failed retrieval attempt of Angel, the lab sends out a failed Angel creation named Kumori, who was created using the "old fasioned" method of cloning that required the organism to be carried and birthed by a similar organsim; a human (who is a scientist at the lab). Kumori was failed due to her dark grey skin, and inability to produce what is known as "angel's glow". She does however poses the ability to move and shape metal as if it were a part of her body as long as she is touching it. She fails to bring Angel back but is welcomed by Ark and Angel to join them as they find some place to hide. Together along with a young Huldra girl named Esther and a Russian agent named Sashura(working name), they work to keep an over zealous group of angels from throwing the worlds balance into dissaray (again, more detail later).
Age: 12-14 (progresses with story)
Created by humans, commissioned by an angel for use for war. her human creator intended to harness and use "angel's glow" for weaponry. The one who commissioned her had a completely different idea, Angels true purpose was to be the first among many brood mothers, who would bear children by angels who were as close to angelic as possible (children of angel and human birth [nephilim] are far from angelic).
Angel herself is curious, outgoing and not afraid to express herself. Her angelic heredity does go to her head a bit and make her somewhat arrogant and on occasion she does say things that are very hurtful. However her creation bothers her, making her feel artificial. a Her angel's glow allows her to defend herself by producing balls of light that can be used as projectiles or shields and heal wounds to a degree (she can't heal missing limbs without the limb in question or a wound that has scarred over).
A creature of somewhat unnatural lineage, the fourth child of a succubus mother and a beast who's lineage is also somewhat unnatural as well as emperor/god (emperor and god are interchangeable terms on Mu) of a large portion of Mu. Ark was next in line to be emperor until the boat he was on was attacked by the sea monster Leviathan and he somehow ended up in human society. As heir to the throne Ark was to take on numerous brides who would bear him genetically superior heirs, one of which would be chosen to do the same.
Ark as a person is rather odd and somewhat disturbing. For starters, his main weapon against people is his mouth. He eats people who threaten him and his friends. He may eat them alive, or rip them apart first. He may offer a friend an arm to eat, however this offer has only been taken up by Kumori. He is easily blinded by rage and can only think something out so far before resorting to brute force. Because of his ordeal that lead him into human society, he is frightened of large fish and eels, even dead ones. His fear is also evident with small fish, exhibited by a fixated stare into the creatures eyes.
Kumori, named so for her dark gray skin, was the first attempt of creating an angel, her creation involved the use of a human to carry her as she developed. Her mother a scientist working to create a means to harness "angel's glow" along with another scientist (who is the main scientist who I have yet to name). However Kumori was deemed a failure and was only kept as a research subject and an assassin who didn't officially exist. Her mother however only agreed to let this be so Kumori wouldn't be destroyed. Kumori's body is covered with scars from punishment for failure and wounds from fleeing scenes of assassinations.
Kumori's personality is the exact opposite of Angel. She is very timid and shy and is ashamed of what she is. She does have the same feelings about her creation as Angel. She is prone to sudden mood changes from depressed to angry, but usually depressed. After joining Ark and Angel she often forgets she doesn't have to refer to people as master, doesn't eat unless told to and will work herself to exhaustion even if injured unless told not to. She doesn't ask for very much and is happy with very little. Her self esteem is very low because of the numerous scars on her body, her pronounced lower canine teeth, burn scars on her right wrist from a shock cuff and her glass eye that she keeps a secret from everyone else.
I'll go into detail about the other characters in a later post because I don't want to make this post too long.
The story itself is still deep in development, events being thought up, rearranged, and tossed out, but this is how it is so far.
After Angel escapes the lab she meets Ark who is living with a young human woman (no name yet) who knows more then normal humans do about whats going on. Angel and Ark leave the woman's house escaping capture by the lab that created Angel and meet Kumori who was sent to capture Angel but instead tries to kill her to prove her worth but fails. Ark removes a restraint from Kumori that tracks her movement and shocks her when deemed necessary by her creator. After the trio escapes they decide they must stop the "heaven on earth project" (the name of the project to create angels). However they are met by a Russian agent of sorts who was sent to observe what, if anything, America was up too named Sashura. After finding what Angel and Kumori are he decides to help them. He helps them escape to china where they are met by a woman who asks the group to take her adoptive huldra daughter Esther with them. The group excepts the request and carries on their journey. They end up in Mu (still working how this happens exactly) where they meet an angel who tries to bring Angel back to the lab (also no name). Ark is reunited with his family and the group settles down until once again the angel attacks. Thanks to some assistance from Ark's eldest brother, they return to human society where they attack the lab successfully. However this victory is short lived as now the angel tries even harder to get angel since she is only candidate for being a brood mother. From this point on the group does battle with the rogue forces of light and earthly beings who have gotten hold of unearthly power.
