History Edit

BackgroundEdit

Before Kyushu, the Yakuza had entwined themselves in local business to the point that they were impossible to remove.[9] Daiichi's Gang hoped to join them.[10]

The Sentai Elite were Japan's Japan's foremost team.[10]

Leviathan attacked Kyushu on the night of November second and the morning of the third, 1999. Nine and a half million were killed, and nearly three million evacuees rendered homeless.[10][11] Japan never recovered. [2][3]

According to rumor, Black Kaze snapped after Kyushu was destroyed. Whatever the reason, she roamed the landscape, killing indiscriminately, until she was captured and sent to the Birdcage.[8]

Post-EchidnaEdit

Khonsu first manifested in Japan.[4]

Post-TimeskipEdit

The Guild recruited Masamune from the ruined area of Japan, where he had been living as a hermit.[7]

Golden MorningEdit

Japan was hit by Scion. Most were evacuated, but an estimated 22 million died.[12]

    Better arrested or banned than dead. I'd say death is the thing to worry about here. -Interlude 19 (Donation Bonus 2)
  6. There was no guarantee they wouldn't use Dodge's technology to visit the United Kingdom or Africa or even shattered, half-sunken Kyushu. - Interlude 26 (Donation Bonus 1)
  7. 7.0 7.1 Masamune wasn't present, but from what I knew of the guy, he wasn't even close to being a front-lines combatant. They'd recruited him from the ruined area of Japan, a somewhat crazed hermit, and gave him work in figuring out how to mass produce their stuff without the maintenance issues snowballing out of control, like tinker tech tended to do in large quantities. - Sting 26.2
  8. 8.0 8.1 Black Kaze. A Japanese urban legend that had turned out to be too real. Word was she'd snapped after Kyushu was destroyed. Except she'd remained lucid throughout trials, calm, patient. Nobody knew her real body count, but conservative estimates put it in the tens of thousands. She'd roamed the remains of the landscape, killing survivors, killing rescuers, boarding the ships that approached too close to the ruined area and killing the crews, and rendering a widespread area devoid of life. - Extinction 27.3
  9. I wouldn't mind a system like the Yakuza of Japan's yesteryear, where we support and involve ourselves in local business, legally, to the point that nobody will be able to shake us." - Queen 18.4

Nine and a half million killed when the region was swamped with tidal waves from every direction while Leviathan disrupted prearranged evacuation attempts.
