Case One: Demons Abound  
  


Botan rose off the group several feet before addressing Koichi's concern. A smile emerged on her face like a mother explaining something to her child for the fifth time,
“That's right. I don't have a user's manual, but you got the creator right there.” Botan pointed towards Ichii, “Just follow it to target, find the boss, and stop them. Easy first case.” Botan's pitch rose as she finished her last sentence and flew off into the sky, leaving the duo behind.

Ichii smiled from ear to ear with Botan's reference to him being the creator, but more so that he knew she would be leaving soon. Ichii waved towards Botan as she took off and once out of sight his shoulders sagged and he released a big sigh of relief.
“Glad that's over.” Ichii made his way over towards Koichi, “You know you can trust my creations, right?” Ichii looked at the compass and began to move around Koichi. A small segment of light moved around the edge of the watch following Ichii's movement, “That outside light is linked to me. It's my check to see if it's working.” Iichi turned and headed towards the exit to the alley and stopped before looking back to Koichi, “We can follow it or walk around aimless. Your call.” Ichii shrugged.

  Koichi watched as Botan's oar lifted back to a hover above them, and to him she seemed to suggest that if he had any problems with the compass he could take it up with you know who. He took in a let out a deep breath, sensing that he would have to go through with this one way or another and getting out of it seemed pretty much hopeless at this point. Koichi shifted his gaze to Ichii and watched him closely as Botan left, noting again how odd he acted around the woman, trying to figure out what was going on between them.
   ” Trust you, shit I don't trust anyone but myself—But it looks like I'm stuck with you for now so I guess we better ge moving. ” Koichi replied as he looked down at the compass and followed Ichii's lead as he started to exit the alley, sensing that things would probably get more chaotic before they resolved and wondering if he had indeed made the right choice to enlist himself in this campaign rather than just accepting his fate and staying dead.

Ichii turned back to Koichi and stiffened his face, doing his best impression of Koichi,
“I don't trust anyone but myself.” Ichii relaxed his face shook his head, looking down at the ground, “Gonna be pretty hard to work as a team if you don't have the confi–” Ichii was stopped short in his mumblings due to the sharp sound of glass breaking, “I trust you heard that.” Ichii smirked towards Koichi and began running out of the alley and down the street towards the sound.

The street out of the alley contained high walls of each side with houses on the other. While larger than the alley, the residential street was silent except for the two of them. The sun was just reaching its zenith leaving little shadow to be seen. Ichii stopped at a T intersection with the road splitting to the left and continuing forward. Down the left turn, Two men wearing black three-piece suits with white shirts and black ties stood in front of what appeared to be a small business. The shorter of the two would appear familiar to Koichi. Trash laid litered on the ground in front of the shattered window. A small elderly man wearing an apron stood in front of them, his back bent forward from age, looked defiantly up towards the two men.
“I much rather pay for that window than protection from you.” The taller of the two men in suits clenched his fist in anger. Ichii jaw clenched in anger as he caught the sight of two small horns on the top of the taller man's head, “Demon.” Ichii looked back towards Koichi and saw the compass pointed for them to proceed forward, “We need to stop them. The taller one's been taken over by a demon!”

  Ichii's words seemed to strike Koichi in a way he was trying to feel out when the sound of breaking glass pulled him from his thoughts. Ichii moved quickly, and sensing that whatever it is they were here to do was underway, Koichi followed. The sun overhead beat down on Koichi as he picked up the pace to catch up with the person Botan had paired him with, ahead he had stopped at an intersection. Koichi slowed his pace to as top when he reached his ally and turned to his left to look down the street at the scene that was unfolding. He instantly knew what was happening, Yakuza putting pressure on a small business to pay the protection fee. He had been in this same situation many times before.
   ” I know that guy. ” Koichi suddenly said aloud as he realized that one of the two men were familiar. The other however, who stood many inches taller, was not someone he remembered from his time in the Yakuza.
Koichi stood in the middle of the street, the compass that had been thrust upon him held tightly in his hand when Ichii exclaimed that the taller of the two men was in fact a demon. For a moment he doubted this but something about the sense of urgency that Ichii was showing convinced him that something was indeed off about this situation. Simply nodding in response Koichi began to step forward towards the elder shop owner and two Yakuza, trying to find his footing and wondering where this situation would take him.

Ichii smiled towards Koichi at his response of being willing to help someone not associated with their mission. He turned the corner along side Koichi with a genuine smile waved towards the group of three,
“Hey, did you guys hear that loud bang?” While he spoke, a white bandage ran itself out the back of his messenger bag and moved it's way up the back of Ichii's shirt until he had disappeared under the garment. Ichii looked with shock towards the window and the trash littered before it, “Oh jeez, the winds pretty bad this time of the year, huh? Old man, why don't you head back inside and make sure that your store is alright?” In a slow, deliberate, and not so subtle way, Ichii winked at the store owner.

The taller of the two Yakuza stepped forward. His two horns and pronounced canines more obviously showing his demonic attributes as he faced the two newcomes. His fist clenched as the shorter man grabbed his clenched fist, recognizing Koichi,
“It's alright, Hideki.” The shorter one said as he moved towards Koichi, “Koichi, it's been a while. Few years now, huh? Seems like your friend here is lost. Why don't you help him find his way?” Ren, the shorter Yakuza, motioned his head towards Ichii trying to give them a chance to ignore the situation. The shop owner, noticing the attention was taken off of him, quietly slipped away into the shop and disappeared from sight, unnoticed.

  Koichi stood with both hands in the pockets of his slacks as Ichii began to talk, drawing the attention of the two gangsters, and for once it seemed like the one he had been paired with might actually be good for something. Koichi continued to stand with the sun beating down on them from overhead as the taller unfamiliar man followed by Ren turned their attention squarely to them. It was clear how this situation was going to play out, but it seemed at least worth trying to talk their way out of any conflict if they could.
   ” It's been awhile hasn't it Ren? ” Koichi broke his silence, talking calmly as if they were friends. ” Seems like you have a new partner, maybe we should all just go our separate ways? It's a damn fine day after all. ” Koichi continued, trying to read the others, feeling his back start to tense, ready to strike if he had too, hoping that he could at least draw them closer first.

Hideki bared his teeth towards Koichi as he defied Ren's warning.
“You little…we don't have time for this.” Ren stepped to move in front of Hideki prevent further conflict ad grabbed Hideki's arm stronger. Like throwing a bag of groceries, Hideki threw his arm to the side and tossed Ren through the broken window and into the shop. Ren's body disappeared as it could be heard smacking hard into some part of the store. The old man shouted in surprise. Iichi looked quickly towards the Yakuza then go Koichi, “You got this, I'll look after the old man.” Iichi disappeared into the store.

Hideki smirked as he looked down on Koichi who was now standing alone,
“You really should have left when you had a chance.” The man's already large stature seemed to grow larged as he clenched his fist and sent a right hook towards Koichi's face.

  There was a tinge of instinct that flashed through Koichi's mind as the events began to unfold. He took a calm step backwards as the large Yakuza took hold of Ren and with surprising strength even for someone his size, launched him like a rag doll through the window into the old man's shop. Koichi had taken yet another step backwards as the Hideki turned his attention, his hands still shoved in his slack pockets, he was doing his best to create space, even just a little.
   ” You know, a lot of people have told me I should just leave things alone, and I guess I just never listen. ” Koichi was replying when the Yakuza clenched his massive fist and took a swing. He was fast, really fast for his size, but not as fast as Koichi. The tall thin man leaned back as the blow swiped close to his face, moving his body to the left as his hands moved from their pockets. Tensing his muscles and pivoting his feet Koichi jabbed quickly at the taller man's body, hoping to strike him near his right kidney.

Koichi's fist hit Hideki's flesh straight on, the force feeling like it hit a wall of muscle as the Yakuza barely seemed to register to the hit. Hideki grinned widely, baring his large canine teeth as he did so.
“Not bad, but maybe you should have listened this time.” Hideki wrapped his arm around Koichi's atttacking arm. He gripped tightly as he pulled the man in and delivered a mighty headbutt before trying to toss the man behind him similar way he did with Ren.

  A surge of pain ran from Koichi's clenched fist up his arm to his shoulder as his jab strike made contact with the brick wall that was this man's torso. Koichi let out a sigh as he felt the man's gigantic hands clasp around his forearm and with a mighty tug jerk him forward. Pain rushed again as his head came into one on one contact with Hideki's own, making his knees feel weak for an instant. The tug came again but this time it was different, Koichi even in the minor daze he was in recognized the motion from before. Allowing the man's force to move him Koichi did his best to steer himself and when Hideki ley go the former Yakuza arced his body it a way to sling him sideways. He extended his legs and leaned forward coming to a sliding halt along the paved sidewalk in from of the old man's store.
   ” Maybe I should have listened… ” Koichi said under his breath as he dusted his hands off from steadying his landing. ” Hey uh… Ichii, you want to lend me a hand out here or what? ” Koichi shouted into the broken window behind him as he tried to figure out his next move.

Hideki bared his teeth towards Koichi,
“Not so tough now that you're alone.” A loud bang came from the inside of the shop causing Hideki to stop in his tracks and looking bad, “Oh, my bad.” Ichii's voice came out from out of the shop as it was followed by a series of banging and dragging sounds. “Oops sorry.” As Ichii emerged from the shop, he was holding a white cloth that led behind him, wrapped around the unconscious Ren. Iichi dragged the body and moved it the rest against the wall of the shop before looking past Hideki towards Koichi, “Come on, Koichi. He may be possessed by a demon, but it shouldn't be too much for you.” 

Iichi picked his messenger bag off his should and let it drop to the ground. The bag fell to the flower immediately and hit the ground with a loud thud. Iichi leaned into the bag and began digging around inside, “No….not this. Hmmm…” After several moments, Iichi pulled out two fingerless gloves. “Here we go.” Iichi began putting on the gloves as Hideki began walking towards him,
“You think you're tough, huh, you little shit.” Iichi smiled and dashed forward, delivering a swift punch to the yakuza's stomach. A loud thud could be heard as Hideki didn't even flinch, “Come on.” Iichi punched again, “Turn on you dumb….” Hideki's fist caught Iichi's chin mid sentence sending the young man flying backwards,

  Koichi took in a series of deep breaths as Ichii exited the old man's shop and with about as much theater as he could managed, made a show out of pulling two beat up old gloves out of his bag. The long haired ex-yakuza let out a sigh as he watched Hideki turn his attention away and take a few steps toward Ichii before laying a good punch right on his chin.
   ” God damn it, my first day on the job and already I'm seeing some shit that I don't even really know how to explain. ” he said to himself as Ichii seemed to be lifted from the ground by the demon's punch. Koichi remembered his training, thinking about being taught the use of spirit energy. He had never been comfortable with the process, he wished he could just fight with knives and fists, like the old days. But then again, he thought, the old days got him killed. Realizing he was going to have to lean on some of his knew found skills, Koichi started focusing his ki, sending what energy he could muster without anger pulsing into his right hand. It was visible but it wasn't a blade yet, he pushed harder but the rage wasn't there, he would have to break through this barrier somehow, he knew it.

Hideki watched with a grin as Iichi went flying away. He turned his attention towards Koichi only to snarl with a grunt, “Who the fuck are you people?!” Hideki stated as he noticed the ki coming off of Kochi's hand. “Fuckin' old man. I'll destroy your business for this.” Hideki turned his head towards the old man's business before looking back to Koichi. He bent his knees, his legs increasing in size as his right arm follow behind it. The ground crumbled under his jump as Hideki lunged forwards towards Koichi with a right hook.

“Come on….work. Turn on.”
Iichi now back on his feet as he opened and closed his fist, focusing on the gloves he had just put on. A bright blue light seemed to appear around the gloves after several seconds, electricity arcing around the fabric of the glove. “There we goooo!”

  The demon Hideki seemed to show a moment of unsureness after landing his blow on Ichii. He had turned towards the old man's business for a moment before noticing Koichi and what he was up to. The ground beneath the Yakuza seemed to explode into a slow rain of rocks and debris as Hideki launched himself towards Koichi. The smaller man felt the fear in him grow, the uncertainty flickering on that he would be able to summon his energy blade. He had yet to truly master it, at least summoning it, it seemed.
   ” Awww… Shit.. SHIT! ” He found himself shouting as he tried to move backwards, feeling his feet give way under him as he fell backwards and watched the giant man soar just over him. Panting Koichi lay prone on the ground, feeling the slight vibration of energy in his right hand growing. It was then he noticed the glow and felt something unleashing from him, looking away from Hideki to the rippling current of energy that had shaped itself like a blade it his right hand.

The hulking body of Hideki flew over the prone Koichi. His size and speed allowed him no time to reach out at Koichi and instead slammed his feet down on the ground. His feet dragging and ripping through the concrete as he slowed down. “What the fuck?!” Hideki shooted as he turned and saw a blade of spirit energy fully formed in Koichi's hand. Hideki's aggressive stance seemed to cool as he bent his knees and buffed up his entire body, hesistent now what he saw his foes possessed spirit ability. 

Iichi ran up besides Koichi taking note of his energy blade with a look up and down,
“Now we are talking.” Iichi stated as he brought up his gloves, both now brimming with electricity. “Let's take this guy down.” Iichi bent his knees preparing himself to follow behind Koichi.

  Koichi got to his feet fast, just as Hideki turned to face him, his body now seemingly twice as large as it was when the fight started. Turning to Ichii who had made it to his side, the flicker of electricity coming from the knuckles of his gloves, Koichi gave him a nod of agreement.
   ” Yeah, let's kick this guy's ass! ” Koichi said loud enough that Hideki would be able to hear, his voice now brimming with confidence as the spirit energy blade rippled in his hand. Taking off with a burst of speed, doing his best to step around the cracks and deformations in the concrete left by Hideki, Koichi ran directly towards the demon. His eyes locked into Hideki's own as he neared and just as he brought his right arm back as if to take a swipe with his spirit blade Koichi lowered himself and rolled to his right, hoping to draw Hideki's attention and allow Ichii a free shot.

Iichi ran in the wake of Koichi, his small body being easily concealed behind Koichi if not for the occasional spark of electricity from his gloves. Hideki braced for Koichi's attack, his eyes focused on the energy blade in his hand. When Koichi rolled, Hideki tried to react, lunging forward, but his hulking body was unable to respond that quick and he found himself off balance. His eyes grew wide as he saw Iichi jumping from behind Koichi and his electrified gloves making impact with his unguarded chest.

Electricity coursed through Hideki body causing it to stiffen and shake uncontrollably. Iichi pulled his fist back after a few moments with as the electricty dissipated Hideki feel to the ground unconscious. The horns and fangs disappeared and Hideki's mouth opened up. A small blue demon worked it's way out of Hideki's mouth, the tips of his horns appeared burnt with a little smoke coming off the top. The demon appeared disoriented due to the electricity, but when his eyes saw Hideki and began to regain it's composure,
“Quick grab him.” Iichi yelled as the demon tried to fly off.

  Koichi rolled through his motion and got back to his feet quickly, whipping himself around just in time to see Ichii land a solid powerful blow right in the dead center of the Hideki's chest. The behemoth took a staggering step backwards before falling with a massive thud. The ripple of spirit energy pulsed in Koichi's hand as he watch the demon's form return to normal. It was then he noticed the movement from Hideki's mouth, his eyes darting to Ichii as he yelled out to grab the thing.
   ” What they hell is it?! ” Koichi shouted back as he rushed forward swiping as the winged creature as it took flight, just missing with his left hand. Sensing the impending consequences of not capturing whatever the thing was Koichi took another swipe, this time with the spirit blade, aimed at the creatures tiny wings.

The demon that sprung from Hideki darted just out range from Koichi's hand. The electrical haze was fading from the demon fast as it's escape sped up. Its diminutive size combined with its speed made for a difficult target to hit. The demon darted round Koichi's sword strike and flew off, disappearing into the distance very quickly. “AHH.” Iichi raised his hands up into the air then threw them down by his sides, “Well, what ya gonna do?” Iichi shrugged as he moved his way towards Hideki's body, feeling for a pulse. “Hmm. No pulse.” Iichi looked up toward Koichi confirmed, “A possessed human should be fine after the demon leaves.” Iichi continued his examination of Hideki's body.

“Argh…hmm..hmm.”
The sound of grunts could be heard coming from Ren as he began to regain consciousness.
