So basically this rp is set in the world of the Kagerou Project, but all powered characters are replaced with forumer-submitted characters.
You don't need to know too much about KagePro beforehand, I'll include a bundle of background information and you should be set if you read it.
Living since the dawn of time, a medusa named Azami wandered the earth. Other than her red eyes and scaly cheeks, she seemed like a normal human girl. Inside of her existed 11 snakes; each with a unique "eye-related" power.
-Concealing Eyes the holder(user) can conceal their own presence and the presences of others in a 3m radius around them. They don't actually disappear, it's just nearly impossible for people to notice them.
-Stealing Eyes the holder can 'steal' the thoughts from the minds of other people. mindreading basically
-Deceiving Eyes the holder can change what other people see them as. For instance, they could make themselves look happy when they're actually sad. Again they don't actually shapeshift, they just change what people see when they look at them.
-Drawing Eyes the holder will draw the attention of everyone, no matter what the personal tastes of the people might be. The ability can also be used to sense where the attention of others is directed.
-Locking Eyes the classic medusa ability; by making eye-contact with the holder, the other person will turn into stone. However the character who has this snake (in the original series) inherited it so the power is much weaker, only able to temporarily freeze the person instead of turning them into stone.
-Combining Eyes also known as the 'queen snake'. Its primary purpose is to combine and control the other snakes(powers) but it is also known to cause reality-altering effects, such as turning back time.
-Opening Eyes tbh i'm not too sure on this one. The canon character used this ability to reform herself into a cyber entity after she lost her physical body. She was able to access and control all electronics through this ability.
-Focusing Eyes the holder is able to perceive objects, people, and locations that are far away, from an aerial view.
-Awakening Eyes the holder is able to remake their body into a form of their choosing.
-Clearing Eyes the holder can negate the power of the other snakes.
-Favoring Eyes the holder can project their emotions and memories onto others.
Azami would later have a grandchild named Marry, a seemingly 14 year-old girl that was 1/4 medusa and 3/4 human. She develops a snake of her own.
-Retaining Eyes the holder can remember all that's happened to them over the course of many timelines (courtesy of the queen snake since time keeps resetting in KagePro)
So. Final piece of information:
Going back to Azami the medusa. To very briefly summarize what happened to her, she fell in love with a human and had a hybrid child. Realizing that both her husband and her daughter would die before her, she followed the advice of one of her snakes -- the snake of clearing eyes -- to create a never-ending world where time doesn't exist. Azami decides to call this world the Kagerou Daze(Heat Haze Daze). She succeeds, but a group of humans from a nearby village come to kill her and her daughter and she flees into her world alone.
After festering there for centuries, good 'ol clearing eyes notifies her that her daughter and her granddaughter have both been killed by humans; on August 15 of all days, the anniversary of her marriage and the day she fled into the Kagerou Daze. Horrified, she issues an order to her snakes; bring the two into the world and grant them a new life. In order to resurrect one of them, Azami gives the queen snake (combining eyes) to her granddaughter to act as a surrogate life. The queen snake was the one Azami needed to control the snakes, so the world spiraled out of her control once it left her body. As a result, the Kagerou Daze only remembered her last command: Bring in the two who died on August 15 and bring one back to life.
The snakes were gradually handed out over the years to pairs of people who died on August 15, up even to the present day
Each person who has a snake will have their eyes flash red when they use their power.
The plot of the rp focuses on the children who were each granted a snake and power. They try to wonder what happened to them, as well as gather together with others like them. The clearing eyes will serve as the main antagonist again, like in the canon timeline.
