Everyone knew the history of Death City, whether they were born and raised there, or if they just so happened to stumble through town during their travels. Shinigami had been bound to the city by way of his soul after sealing the kishin Asura, thus making him the city’s protector in various ways. As such, he established Shibusen, a school for students of exceptional and rare backgrounds. While these people wouldn’t exactly be considered the most conventional, they came from around the world to a place where they were easily accepted and found others like themselves. Not only that, but where their special talents could be of use. It had become home. A city with an eccentric culture of its own.
The students that attended the school were an interesting bunch, but never were they seen as a threat to the citizens. In fact, they were almost like saviors, constantly battling whatever horrors seemed to find its way into the streets. It was like that for years, but now, things were different. The citizens were afraid. Things had started to change. There were attacks, but not by monsters. No, lately it had been by those who were supposed to be protecting them, or at least that’s what they were being told. People were coming up missing and accidents were happening. Fingers all pointed at Shibusen and progressively, the school began to fall.
The school had been silent for some months now. At some point, in the beginning of the fall of the school, members of the staff had surrendered themselves as threats against the city. It wasn’t long before activity depleted and even students had ceased activity. It was strange to not see any light from the castle that stood high above the city or to not even have the streets flooded with the academy’s wide range of students and their lively behavior. The It was hard to admit, but it was quiet without them and at the same instance, slightly unnerving. There hadn’t been incident in quite some time, but there were still those who wondered how it would be handled when the paranormal seemed to find its way into their city and there was no Shibusen to turn to. Then there were some who honestly wondered where such a large part of their community had vanished off to.
