II. Personality» Personality: "Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world."
Sanuye has an inborn sense of idealism and morality, but what sets her apart is that she is not an idle dreamer, but someone capable of taking concrete steps to realize her goals and try to make a lasting positive impact. She tends to see helping others as her purpose in life, but while she can be found engaging rescue efforts and doing charity work, her real passion is to get to the heart of the issue so that people need not be rescued at all.
Sanuye indeed shows a very unique combination of traits: though soft-spoken, she has very strong opinions and will fight tirelessly for an idea she believes in. She is decisive and strong-willed, but will rarely use that energy for personal gain – Sanuye will act with creativity, imagination, conviction and sensitivity not to create advantage, but to create balance. Egalitarianism and karma are very attractive ideas to Sanuye, and she tends to believe that nothing would help the world so much as using love and compassion to soften the hearts of tyrants.
Sanuye finds it easy to make connections with others, and has a talent for warm, sensitive language, speaking in human terms, rather than with pure logic and fact. It makes sense that her friends and colleagues will come to think of her as a quiet, extroverted type, but they would all do well to remember that she needs time alone to decompress and recharge, and to not become too alarmed when she suddenly withdraws. Sanuye takes great care of other’s feelings, and she expects the favor to be returned – sometimes that means giving her the space she needs for a few days.
Sanuye is amiable, excitable, kind, and curious (her most notable trait being her kindness). She shows a distinct lack of social awareness, likely due to not having a lot of experience with human nature. She seems confused at the concept of unconditional friendship, seeming both immensely pleased and somewhat surprised when people offer companionship without asking for something in return. She places an immense value on friendship, brought to anger only if she witnesses one of her friends getting hurt.
Really though, it is most important for Sanuye to remember to take care of herself. The passion of her convictions is perfectly capable of carrying her past their breaking point and if her zeal gets out of hand, she can find herself exhausted, unhealthy and stressed. This becomes especially apparent when she finds herself up against conflict and criticism – her sensitivity forces her to do everything she can to evade these seemingly personal attacks, but when the circumstances are unavoidable, she can fight back in highly irrational, unhelpful ways.
When activated by her Creator, Sanuye's personality will change a great deal. The bright, bubbly human persona will be temporarily "shut off", replaced by a cold and calculated singular mindset to accomplish whatever goal it was that she was sent for. This mode makes her especially lethal, as it removes the normal altruism that keeps her from using her equipment indiscriminately. When exiting this mode, Sanuye will have no memory of any actions she performed while under the influence of her combat protocols.
Sanuye shows a great deal of insecurity about her partially-artificial nature, often worrying how people's perceptions of her will change once they find out what it is that she really is. She is seen to enjoy dancing, and is extremely proficient at "the robot".
III. Bionic Enhancements» Integrations:
Sanuye is a bionic experiment. A paramilitary cyborg operative designed to be the epitome of combat expertise, and a perfect storm of killing capability to eliminate any and all spiritual beings that cross her path. Because of this, her physical and mental limits are far beyond what is attainable for a normal human being. (Note: Sanuye must get express permission from Kakine or someone with similar authority within the Yuudeshi clan to engage in combat with any individual, even in defense. This puts her at a significant disadvantage when not "active" already, as when left to her own devices, Sanuye will typically choose to try and avoid fighting altogether as opposed to trying to get authorization to battle. For this reason, Sanuye is rarely seen fighting unless explicitly sent to do so.)Bionic Form:
A human could never go toe-to-toe with the kind of opponents and targets Sanuye is expected to face on a day-to-day basis. A human could never complete the sort of contracts Sanuye is given. That is why nothing was left to chance with Sanuye. Sanuye's whole body is adapted and molded around a biometric support system. She looks human, she acts human, she has the anatomic makeup of a human, but she is far from human. Her skin is a variable mithril, guarding against varying degrees of harm and protecting the components within. Her bones are enforced with a spiritual alloy, nigh unbreakable but for opponents specifically made to break such things. Along with this, her heart is an output center for a variety of chemical compounds, coursing through her and adding augmentations to her being. The major downside of this is that her body would be completely normal, trapped within human limitations, if one were to disable the bionics. In fact, without the bionics, Sanuye is considerably weaker than even other powerless human opponents, as they act partially as a life support system allowing her body, despite her brain's otherwise fatal deformity, to function. There are two ways to do this. The first is to disable them remotely, if you somehow have the access codes to Sanuye's command functions or if you know where her controls lie (the location of which is known only by Kakine Yuudeshi and equal-ranking Yuudeshi members at this time). The second is to launch an EMP, or a similar disruptive electrical output, directly into the nerve center of her brain.Enhanced Mind:
Able to utilize 9 times more than a human's brain capacity for information storing and sorting, her mind is practically a computer built for strategy and problem solving. She can work out any sort of battle or attack ahead of time and predict an enemies movements based on what they have displayed so far, showing that her memory borders on almost total recall. She is also ingenious in devising solutions against superior aspects of an opponent, can observe and exploit, and can calculate distance, time, and speed at lightning-fast speeds. Her sense of time is also superb, bordering on an absolute time sense. Enhanced Reflexes:
Her reflexes are nigh-instantaneous, so that she is able to dodge point-blank gunfire and out maneuver almost any opponent stuck at the human level. Even powerful, high-risk targets she has faced, she is able to maneuver around. While this is not infallible, and there are opponents she will face who could match her reflexes, said reflexes haven't failed her yet. Enhanced Strength:
Her bionics have done a number to her muscles as well. Supporting her bone structure, and enhancing her strength, her strength is vast. She has been known to be able to smash through almost any material, short of sekiseki itself. Holding a bus in one hand, and smashing through terrain as if it was a saltine cracker with the other, Sanuye is able to easily go toe-to-toe at close range, if the need arises. Witnesses who have observed her fighting have described her strength as "the strength of one-hundred demons, all as angry as she is."Enhanced Stamina:
Sanuye's heart, being 99% metal and 1% pure energy, can keep her body up and running for inconceivable lengths. With augmented ATP input, a recycling system for the hydrogen dioxide and oxygen in her system, and enhanced electrical energy sent through her brain and musculature, Sanuye could conceivably fight forever, if left to her own devices. Enhanced Speed:
Sanuye's body is also able to break the normal limitation for speeds a human can conceivably reach. With rapid vibrations and quick pulses of energy and electrics, Sanuye's movements can reach up to speeds of Mach 1. However, that is where her limit is. Any attempt to reach higher speeds could damage her neural circuits permanently, and disable the enhancements on her speed entirely.Enhanced Senses/Threat Assessment:
Her senses have been highly augmented as well, making her able to see, hear, smell, feel, and taste things better than an ordinary human. If you hit a baseball with a bat, Sanuye would hear the crack of the bat, listen for the disruptions in the wind, and be able to tell you where the ball would land. If Sanuye spilled a certain chemical on someone, she could trace the unique smell of that chemical to track the person, even if she doesn't start for days and the trail is all but faint. And so forth. Her biggest attribute, however, is her sight. It is her left eye that houses the true secret. This eye is actually a supercomputer, wired into the databases of known antagonistic and protagonistic organizations through communications channels and database entries. Through this, she is able to "scan" opponents and abilities, using a micro-reader located in her pupil. For the most part, she uses this to scan the bodies of her recent terminations, confirming their death and completing her contract, wiring her payment through and giving her the next contract. However, it has a second use. Utilizing the scanner, Sanuye can detect an opponent's race, the "theme" of their abilities, and view their vital signs by scanning their physical and spiritual makeup (so long as any of this info is being openly shown and is not hidden to those of Sanuye's level). It can also tell her the person's identity if they're a member of any major organization that would be considered a "known" face, or a prioritized enemy or ally of one. She can also detect the nature of attacks, detecting how much damage they'd do to her, or the kinds of effects they might have on her body, and even suggesting a possible best approach to countering it.
Now, with such a strong ability comes limitations and drawbacks, and her eye has a fair few. While she can detect information about an opponent, this can be prevented by the opponent themselves. If the opponent is exceptional at hiding their spiritual signature, Sanuye will be unable to detect their power theme, or their race. If they aren't, but they have a ziamichi spirit, or a secondary spirit or power set of any kind besides their main racial one, Sanuye will be unable to detect it, as she will only detect what is first output by the opponent. If the opponent has spiritual or physical safeguards against their vitals being read (lead-like skin to ward against radiation, etc.) then she will be unable to do so. As far as reading attacks goes, she can only read spiritual, energy, or elemental attacks. Physical ones such as melee or weapon-strike types, she cannot assess beyond her own understanding and mental capacity. If an attack has safeguards or preventions about being detected, or if an attack is simply a disguise for another attack (a strong attack that doesn't put off a strong spiritual signature, or a Kidō hidden inside another Kidō, for instance) she will be unable to read the true nature of it, only the cosmetic nature. In the case of Identity, this only
works if the enemy is a known member of a major organization, or a prioritized ally or enemy of one. Free-lancers, unseated, or "classified" members, such as the leaders/members of secret organizations and groups, people who have allied to no one, or those not high enough in the rankings to discern themselves yet will not be detected. If an opponent is wearing a mask of any kind, including vizard masks, or if they have changed their appearance since their database entry (dying hair, contacts, etc. minor cosmetic changes) then she will be unable to detect them. In the case of the mask, however, if the opponent is KNOWN for the mask then the detection will still go through. The most obvious way to stop ANY of this, however, is simply to stay out of sight of her left eye, or cover it/disable it. If this is done, there can be no scan in the first place.Master Martial Arts/Swordsmanship Specialist:
A proficient and frequent user of a variety of CQC and Swordfighting styles, Sanuye has enough knowledge, technique, and skill to keep a number of opponents on their toes. Whether she's bare-knuckle brawling, or utilizing the various blade-type weapons in her possession, she knows how to handle herself in a fight, and isn't afraid to demonstrate it. Sanuye's fighting style has been shown as much more aggressive than one might initially suspect of her, bearing resemblance to boxing and kickboxing as well as break-dancing.Master Marksmanship/Assassination Specialist:
As one of the most efficient assassins born from humankind, it goes without saying that Sanuye is no stranger to gun play. A marksman all her life, Sanuye's favorite saying is "I never miss". With rifles, pistols, sub-machine guns, shotguns, sniper rifles.. you name it, Sanuye can fire it. And with pin-point accuracy too. So much so that Sanuye doesn't require normal aiming and adjusting time if laying a target out with a rifle from long range. Her senses allow her to auto-adjust to wind and barometric pressure on the fly, instantly knowing where to aim and fire to hit a vital point on an unsuspecting opponent. Sanuye has extensive knowledge of every pressure point and vital spot on the human body, as well as knowledge of the soul chain and soul sleep in spiritual beings. She only takes the time to aim and to focus if she wishes to really relish in a kill, or make EXTRA sure someone's dead. However, she can do this without his rifles as well. Thrown weapons, such as knives or shurikens, are also in her arsenal, and she can strike with these using deadly accuracy. Combining this with her use of silencers and her quick reflexes, Sanuye is able to be a variable shadow, infiltrating and assassinating without leaving so much as a mark. Not counting the corpse, of course. Enhanced Durability/Pain Tolerance:
As mentioned before, Sanuye's skin and bones are both augmented as far as the punishment they can take. Sanuye's skin is difficult to cut or pierce, and her bones are much harder than normal bones to break by force alone. Toss a tank at her, see if she cares. Along with this comes an inhuman intolerance for pain. The various bionics in her body wire into her nervous system. At moments when the nerve signals flare up to signify pain, the bionics interrupt those signals, stopping them completely until the nerves in question stop flaring. Because of this, it would seem Sanuye feels no pain whatsoever.Regenerative Healing Factor:
Her healing powers are enhanced, making her able to recover from almost any injury, such as gunshots, stab wounds, broken bones, bruises, and many more. She can heal much faster than normal. She was once stabbed clean through the chest and this didn't do anything except slow her down. She can regenerate anything up to a limb, but that's the extent of her healing abilities. To regenerate minor wounds, she simply has to wait anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes (1-5 posts) for them to fully heal. For limbs, they won't return until he has had some time to recover outside of combat. (24 hours after the in-universe date the thread ends.)
Special Hardware: The God-Fearing Installation:
- Enhanced Immunity:
Due to her healing factor, she is immune to diseases, infections, and foreign chemicals, not including the ones pumped through her system. This means she cannot get drunk, sick, or be affected by serums or similar drugs.
Also due to her enhancements, she ages much slower than any normal human, and will not age a day in appearance no matter how many years she manages to live upon the planet.
Sanuye has one, and only one true spiritual ability. This is because she is not a reiatsu/reishi-based construct like a shinigami. However, the implants in her brain, along with the augments to her metal heart, lace her skin with its own unique spiritual signature, something off, something not identifiable, something.. strange. This is what allows Sanuye to combat spiritual opponents. Yes, she is contained in a mortal shell, but she is interwoven with spiritual energy, allowing her to see and make contact with spiritual beings. Beyond this, is her mental defenses. A special spiritual barrier surrounding her brain prevents any sort of outside influence from tampering with the balance of her sense, or perception. This means that toxins, gas, illusions, etc. will not work on her. Even illusions that effect how the opponent perceives the world will not affect her. She will see the truth of how reality is, and not the reality her opponent wants her to see.
Sanuye has a great many tools, tricks, and weapons designed specifically for one purpose: The elimination of spiritual beings. All of which are contained on or around her tool belt, or in sheaths on her back, or in special holders in her wrists.Tools of the Trade:
One of Sanuye's signature tools, and one of her most useful, is her sword. The blade, while forged in steel, is made and woven with spiritual energy, much like Sanuye herself. The blade was enforced, enforced again, and continually enforced until its current state, which was designed to be able to actively block and counter attacks and weapons from those even in a shikai state. Will it be very effective against opponents of a higher power at max strength? Probably not. But it's not going to shatter on contact, either. Another, similar weapon that she can use is a Retractable Naginata: a battlestaff with a blade in one end. This has similar properties to her normal blade, but is used in different situations, such as when she needs a faster or more maneuverable weapon than a sword.Pistols:
Sanuye's pistols look as if they're normal human weapons, but in fact they harbor a much more sinister secret. She carries two pairs. The first is a pair of modified Beretta FS92s. Sanuye's own rapid trigger-pulling means they can fire at a rate almost instantaneously one after the other, creating a stream of bullets. Along with this, the magazines on the guns are modified to gather ambient and floating reiatsu left over in the air and from attacks that connect on or near her. They convert this reiatsu into the special ammo that the guns use, meaning that she could theoretically never run out so long as there's reiatsu in the air. The inside of the barrel contains a special written incantation inscribed on the rifling, imbuing Sanuye's shots with a fiery property, creating mini-explosive pellets that detonate cero-style upon contact with an enemy.
Sanuye's second set of pistols have the same fire rate and reiatsu-ammo properties as the previous, but there are distinct differences. These are modeled after a pair of Colt M1911s, and the special property that their ammo is imbued with is electric in nature. Each shot releases roughly 50,000 volts at about 19 pulses per second into the enemy's body, targeting the neural and nervous centers with concentrated blasts. The targeting isn't for damaging, but for a stunning effect, attempting to temporarily incapacitate the opponent to allow a more clean kill or escape for Sanuye. However, opponents with high defenses, strong will, or resistance to electricity could easily fend this off. Much like the first set, Sanuye can point this set of pistols in the same direction and fire both at once. However, with the electric ammo, when they both combine, they will fire a rough replica of a Gran Rey Cero at the opponent, mimicking the size, speed, and strength of one, although the firing pattern is less erratic. This attack can be fired 2 times per thread, and requires a 2 post cooldown between uses.Sub-Machine Guns:
Much like her pistols, Sanuye wields a pair of SMGs. Specifically modeled after the MP5ks. These have the same spiritual ammo use as the pistols, but their fire rate is a lot faster, and they're a lot less accurate. (Though even a lot less accurate is still pretty damn accurate with Sanuye's marksmanship). The key difference, besides the fire rate, is the element they're imbued with. The bullets streaming from THIS gun have glacial properties. When they make contact with an object or enemy, they explode outward in a hard-to-break burst of ice about the size of a large hand-print. The sheer number of bullets streaming forth means that this torrent could mean a solid wall of ice, a slowed opponent, or, in extreme cases, an opponent who's frozen solid. The last effect only works on opponents below lieutenant tier, or really weak members OF lieutenant tier, depending on the case. If an enemy IS frozen solid, enough determination could allow them to break free. If they're slowed, then enough focus could get them out of this debuff.Taser Bolas:
Another piece of equipment Sanuye is prone to use is a set of three "bolas". A rough hunting weapon used to tie down the limbs or other extremities on opponents. However, her's are considerably more high-tech. The balls on the end of each wire are, in essence, miniature tesla coils. When the wires find purchase against an opponent, each individual ball will fire off a taser-like burst of electrical energy directly into the opponent through the skin, targeting the brain and heart. As before, enemies with strong defenses or electrical resistance can resist this, but since it requires direct skin contact to take effect, it is considerably more difficult to do. This is an attempt at a small stun, lasting in total for the remainder of the post in which it makes contact if it works. However, opponents whom have resistances to stuns, or as aforementioned, electricity, will merely feel a tickle. Otherwise, the opponent must be roughly one whole tier level, with a durability level lower than Sanuye's own (E.G.: 3-1 > 4-1 + Advanced > Beginner) to feel the effects of this stun.Forearm Blades:
Much like her swords, Sanuye has a pair of smaller blades on each forearm. These aren't as durable, nor as strong, as her other bladed weapons. They're made, primarily, for quick cuts, as they vibrate at a rate specifically designed to slice and slash through hierro and other defenses of the flesh, created also to create a "burning" sensation just under the skin. Like everything else, it is completely possible to negate this effect, or resist the blades, with strong enough defenses.Ember Cannons:
The golden-yellow bracelets typically worn on Sanuye's wrists hold one of the most commonly used and dangerously potent weapons in her arsenal. These bracelets can extend outward and downward to cover Sanuye's hands and upper forearms, creating a sort of gauntlet covering everything but the underside of her arm up to about halfway down her forearm. These close-to-medium-range weapons are technically considered guns, as they fire focused projectile-bursts of reishi that is drawn in from the surrounding environment (much like a Quincy's arrows) by the core of the gauntlet themselves, as Sanuye possesses no such power of her own.
The odd thing about the Ember Cannons though despite their unusual appearance and ammo composition, is that they can't be fired from a "stationary" fighting position, Sanuye's arm must make a punching motion to allow for these weapons to fire. This adds velocity to the shots, allowing them to surpass the speed of your average Bala as a result. The shots themselves are powerful, colliding with enemies with explosive force high enough to potentially even cause burns and bruising on opponents with exceptional Hierro or Akuma Kyodo-type techniques. This makes the weapons ideal for close-range battles, as the combination of these powerful blasts with natural strength and a flurry of punches can lead to dire consequences for even seasoned combatants. As a consequence for this power and speed, Sanuye sacrifices range, as shots from these "cannons", despite technically being ranged attacks, will only travel up to a distance of fifty feet before they must have collided with an object/opponent and detonated, otherwise they will simply fizzle out of existence. The Ember Cannons also have a powerful recoil, which if accounted for and utilized properly can help augment Sanuye's movements, or launch her high into the air. However, if Sanuye isn't careful or paying attention, this can be as detrimental as it is helpful, creating the possibility of her accidentally knocking herself off her feet.
While the gauntlets, due to their ammo creation method, don't run out of rounds, Sanuye can only fire a finite number of them per post, averaging between 10-20 depending on how active she is in combat, as the more Kinetic energy she builds, the faster the gauntlet will replenish lost energy. For instances where she has maintained movement for the entire duration of a post, the maximum will be 20. For instances where her motion is limited, or has been hampered or stopped for any reason, this number lowers to 10.The IRC-SE:
Sanuye's main weapon is by far her most dangerous and in-depth. This weapon is a rifle, a customized and modernized version of a standard FN Fal with a silencer on the barrel so that her shots go unheard. However, it has gone through heavy modification, and would not be identified as the gun it is based off of by function alone. IRC-SE stands for "Instantaneous Reishi Combustion and Spiritual Elimination". It is named such because of its devastating effects on the spiritual world.
Much like her other gun-type weapons, Sanuye's IRC-SE pulls ambient reiatsu and reishi from the air around her to load new ammo into the cartridge, making reloading unnecessary and ammo practically infinite. This rifle has two fire types. The first is an Assault-Rifle type firing rate, in which it will fire rapidly AND accurately, firing many, less powerful shots toward an opponent. The second is her assassination tool, the Sniper Rifle firing method. By using the scope, and flipping a small switch on the side, Sanuye can increase her long-range accuracy exponentially, able to score a direct head shot from a maximum of a mile away. These shots are a lot stronger, and must be in order to pierce through the type of defenses one expects when assassinating spiritual targets.
Now, the specific reason why this is Sanuye's most potent weapon is quite apparent once she has actually FIRED it. The firing chamber is specially designed, spraying each bullet with a special combination of potent chemicals as it enters the chamber, and activating the chemicals as soon as the bullet leaves the barrel. These chemicals, activated by the explosive force of the bullet's launch, cause the bullet itself to burn rapidly through reishi as it travels through the air. This means that it burns through attacks, the makeup of spiritual objects, and spiritual bodies themselves as it streaks through the air. The chemicals do this by breaking down the reishi into its base particles before eliminating them from existence with a special decomposition agent, absorbing the resulting energy to increase the piercing power of the bullet itself. This makes her shots difficult to block, or endure, as the very bodies of most spiritual beings are composed largely of reishi. The bullets become even stronger if Sanuye herself is in the spiritual world, as the more reishi the bullets break through, the stronger they get before impact. However, this ability is not without its drawbacks. First; items of the physical world can slow these bullets. Second; they CAN be dodged. They're difficult to dodge due to Sanuye's accuracy and the speed of the bullets, but they CAN be dodged. Third; If a bullet is about to hit an opponent, and the opponent flashes their reiatsu at a level that is equal or greater than the reishi the bullet has already burned through, the bullet's effect will be negated, and the bullet itself will explode with the force of a stronger-level cero in mid-air. Lastly; This final ranged usage of the weapon can only be utilized if Sanuye is at a distance of fifty meters or more. Any closer and she will only be able to use the Assault-Mode.
V. History» History:
Sanuye was born premature in the year 2395 to a pair of wonderful and loving parents. They thought the world of her, and had wanted nothing more than to bring a little light into this world when they had found out that the matriarch, Snow, had become pregnant. Yarobi, her husband, had always talked about having a little girl around to spoil, and it seems they had finally gotten their wish.. but something had gone amiss somewhere along the line, it seemed.
Their tiny slice of heaven had been born with a deformity. A one in a million chance that couldn't have been prepared for or prevented. Her synapses weren't firing correctly, and certain functions among even the most basic of motor skills had seemed completely inaccessible. It was bad enough that they had thought the baby dead when she had first come out of the womb. The child had a pulse, and her vitals were fine, but she simply wasn't moving or making any noise, an occurrence that was practically unheard of in childbirth.
Concerned for the well-being of the child, those within Karakura Hospital asked politely that the couple return home and allow for them to keep watch over the girl while they tried to figure out options for helping her. Discouraged, but not without hope, the two left the hospital.. not yet knowing that their first moments with their baby would've also been their last.
Despite tireless efforts from the hospital staff, noone could seem to improve the child's condition at all. They spent weeks bringing in and consulting with doctors from all over the world, trying to find anyone who could provide even the slightest suggestion as to how they might begin to try and help the girl get better. Despite exhaustive and ceaseless attempts, though, no singular person they could counsel had anything that worked. It was as if her brain didn't want to be fixed. As if she was meant to just remain formless in mind and self, destined to only be a shell. Panicked, and determined not to lose this patient, their Chief of Medical Staff came forward with one final option they could pursue.
Using a direct line given only in case of emergencies, he brought the issue before the Yuudeshi household. And specifically before Kakine himself. Together, they came up with a plan to make sure that this would not have to be her end. Hurrying to move both a patient and a large amount of life support equipment in a very slim time-frame, the hospital staff rushed Sanuye to a medical evacuation chopper, where she was taken to a research laboratory where technology existed that was believed to be able to save her.
Although the Yuudeshis had explicitly stated in their discussion with the hospital staff that Sanuye's family would be able to visit anytime they wished, the Chief of Medical Staff made an executive decision on his own that he believed was the best for the child in the long run. He knew that the Yuudeshis made heroes. Strong warriors. Humanity would only hold this child back. Instead of extending the Yuudeshis' invitation to the couple upon calling them, he outright lied, instead telling the pair that their child had been unresponsive to treatment and had died under their care.
When the infant arrived, she was brought before a team of scientists led by Kakine himself, who oversaw a series of experiments done on the child for a number of reasons. The foremost was the saving of her life, but there was a secondary goal here. Sanuye was meant to serve as a daughter of the Yuudeshi, someone to fill shoes left by another whom had been under similar circumstances before. Yes, these alterations would be rescuing this kid from a fate worse than death, but they would also be cementing her future as more than just a human.. more than just the ordinary little girl she would've normally been able to be. She was being thrust into a role that would shape the very core of who she was in the future.. a guardian of the Earth.
The experiments and operations that were performed on Sanuye were sufficient to bring the child's practically unresponsive brain back to life, the credit for which went to a neuro-chip that bridged synapses artificially, allowing for Sanuye's brain to fire at an even higher capacity than it would've been able to normally, allowing for an amazing recovery as she began to almost immediately show signs of activity, displaying a loud and boisterous personality that was night and day compared to the quiet, unmoving child she had previously been. They sedated her to put her back under, pleased with the success so far, and continued working, outfitting her with a number of different modifications to her body and makeup that would allow for adaptability and addition later as she matured. She wasn't just a patient. Sanuye was a project. She was an ongoing experiment. And one that was hoped to show increasing success as it continued.
Once Sanuye had healed from the initial procedures, she had been moved to another wing of the lab where she was kept in 24/7 care by a team of dedicated staff for a good majority of her life. She had a nurse, a teacher, a cook, and a nanny who functioned for disciplinary and affection-related reasons to fill in the otherwise empty parental void. As she grew, she would also begin to have combat trainers come through during the weeks as well, teaching her everything from the art of the sword to the most intricate details about firearms in an entirely seperate wing that had multiple large simulation rooms tailor-made to such things. Her growth was monitored 24/7, and the explosiveness of it was startling. By age 5, she was reading on an eighth grade level. By age 15, she would've been considered in the top 2% in IQ points among humans if she qualified to take such exams. With every point where she seemed to experience a burst of growth, a new modification would be tested. A new device, a new gadget, a new skill.. Sanuye was being hand-molded to be a hero, and it wasn't as if this fact was lost on her. She was taught by every one of the members of her observation staff the differences between good and evil, and which she was being trained to combat. She never disagreed, she never quarreled.. but Sanuye wasn't necessarily happy, either. Her care team was nice, and she liked the idea of being able to help people.. loved it, even.. but living your life in a lab was definitely not something her growing soul was pleased about. She felt like all the things she should be experiencing, all the things people did in history that she could be out doing right now instead of learning about it all, were just passing her by.
The only times when a silver lining shone through her gloomy skies was when Kakine came to visit. He was always the one who promised her that this was all temporary. That soon she would be able to live outside and make friends, and only come back if they needed to check on her or if she wanted to visit. She would be allowed to be her own person, they just needed her here for a little while longer. While she didn't fully understand the reason, she knew it had something to do with the fact that she needed to reach a certain age before they could install the uplink that would allow her to be called back here when they needed her. Sanuye wasn't going to let it get her down, though. She didn't know how long she had to wait, but she knew it would be worth it.
The day finally came on her 21st birthday, a day that had begun to feel bittersweet due to the lack of any real family to spend it with. However, this one was particularly bright due to the arrival of Kakine, who came in and spoke to the doctors for a bit longer than normal before going through normal assessment and evaluation questionnaires with her. When she had finished answering, Kakine informed her that he was going to give her one last implant, and then she was going to be leaving after to an apartment that the Yuudeshis had set her up with inside the city. Sanuye almost immediately began crying from the excitement as she made sure he wasn't joking. Her heart was full to bursting knowing that she was finally going to be able to start a life for herself of some kind.
The implant didn't take long, and it didn't even require her to go under. Alongst the number of modifications Sanuye had been given was a proclivity toward adapting to and adjusting to be compatible with Yuudeshi technology, which made all of the subsequent upgrades that Kakine devised that much easier to install. With this implant, Sanuye's protocols were finally able to reach their maximum potential, but only upon activation, which was the other function of this specific addition, to allow her to be called to action on a moment's notice. Kakine explained to Sanuye that she had to contact him or another ranking Yuudeshi member if she ever wanted to use any of her skills outside of when she was called to do so, and finally simply wished her good luck, and told her that he'd see her the next time he needed to run a diagnostics scan or perform an upgrade before having a small escort team lead her from the building and out of the research complex by chopper, taking her back into the city and guiding her to her apartment. Sanuye waved happily as her escort team left.. and was so overjoyed when the reality of the apartment being hers and the world being open to her set in that she began to cry again.
For the first time in her life, Sanuye felt like she could do anything from here.
