The year is 3019, by now all races have been accepted to earth as citizens by the humans, which means us demons can finally stop fearing for our lives as we wonder for materials and supplies, it used to be so bad that only every 1 in 100 scavengers come back which is terrible. My family applied to citizenship 16 years ago, a year before I was born. Unfortunately back then humans still disapproved of the inter-dimensional alliance the dimensional leaders have set up and slaughtered my parents after they conceived me, I was saved by a nun who runs an orphanage, her name is mama Edith, she’s nice. Anyway, I’m nanashi, it’s Japanese for nameless, and I’m a demon, I plan to make my mark on the human world and influence them towards equality but I need some help.
I have set off on a spectacular endeavor. I have left the orphanage while mama Edith was out for her donation run and I am heading to the dimensional demon museum, why you ask, well there is this urn that supposedly gives whoever opens it their deepest desire, pretty cool huh. As I approach the museum I notice the security is awfully light so I just walk in, I scan the area to see if I can spot it, and sure enough there it is front and center, the shinigami urn. I walk closer to it and it starts to spark, I enchant my hands with my shadow and grab it gently, I then hide it in my cloak and run out as fast as I can. As I continue my getaway I am pursued by human cops but I get away rather easily.
I make it back to my home (the orphanage) and while mama Edith is giving me an ear full for being out I run past her to my room and without haste I open it up. There's this black and purple aura that is coming from the urn.
“What is it that you seek,” it says in a booming voice
“I want infinite power” I reply hastily
“There will be a great toll both mentally and physically, do you accept the challenge,” it asked me as if I wasn’t, this world is still rotten with the discrimination I need the power to fix that.
“Of Course” I accidentally exclaim
“Nanashi” mama Edith yells at my door, “Stop all that shouting”
“I apologize mama Edith”
“As I was saying, you will be granted absolute power by tomorrow morning, I wish you the best of luck on your mission nanashi.” this is where the smoke leaves after branding the kanji for the prisoner on my forehead, I wonder why. Anyway, I go to bed early that night anxious for my new power, I truly am excited to see what I can do tomorrow.
I wake up to the clambering of the kids getting breakfast, I don’t really feel any different so I go get myself some food.
“Nanashi, what’s that on your forehead, right there,” my human “little brother,” asked while he poked my prisoner mark
“It’s nothing, just a fake tattoo” I replied. I’m the only demon in here so any chance the kids can talk to me comfortably is always relieving. I don’t really get talked to by humans, orcs, angles or anyone else for that matter.
“What does it mean Nani” my angel “big sister” asked with wide eyes
“Uh, well, it is Japanese for uh, prosperity, yeah” I manage to stutter through that poor excuse
“Oh, how lovely, did you get it last night when you were out past curfew,” she said with a menacing face.
“That isn't any of your business” I shoot back. My mark starts glowing and its getting pretty painful. I cover it and run out of the house.
“Hello nanashi, I am Akuma,” a voice tells me
“ Who are you, where are you, what do you want!” I shout out at no one in a circle, people start looking at me befuddled and scared so I start running off but I just pop up on top of a roof and stop dead in my track, I almost fell off.
“As I was saying, I am here to help you control your new powers, this means I will have to live in your brain,” Akuma explained, what does he mean by this, is he going to take control of me, I might have to kill him
“The only way you could kill me is if you kill yourself, but you won’t,” He said smugly. Is he mocking me, I’ll kill him, how dare he, who does he think he is. In spite of this Akuma, I jump off the building, he won’t be able to live if I die, HA, fine by me, his tune is terrible. I hit the ground and, wait, what, I am, I am in a meadow laying down, I don’t even feel any pain.
“You think I would just lay around and let you kill me, Ha no, I am here to protect you and me from anything, as long as you have me you will be immortal.”
“You won’t interfere with my life right,” I ask
“No I would just be here for your best interest, consider me your consultant,” he told me in a calm reassuring tone. I believe him as he is in my mind, he could be messing with me, I should be wary. Akuma teleports me back home and I shoot the best excuse that I can come up with on the spot for where I was and how I was acting. They are of course skeptical but let it slide. When I get back in my room the smoke is back but this time it is yellow and more cheery.
"Hey, the new host I am hito I was watching you all day and it looks like grumps over here almost got you killed, which means it's my turn to step in. It is my job to keep you happy through the duration of your life from now on. Great, now there are two of them, how could this get any worse I swear.
"Yo Hito we up already cant I get another thousand years or so, please." a new voice says, "Yo I'm Yami, I'm just a tag along basically". Damn it, why, me, I just want power, not torment. I need to figure out a way to get rid of them and still live to fix this world.
