Moonrise Prologue: Pitch’s Lament

A foghorn echoed in the distance as the waves broke upon the rocky shores. The moon seemed to be at peace behind the thick clouds that promised heavy morning rain, but the seas grew restless as they sang a warning to the world that a great darkness had come to announce it’s return, but no one would hear. No one would suspect the world’s dormancy was to end so soon after it had been recovered. Upon an iceberg the size of a barge, a dark figure waited with an eerie calmness that shook the air around him. He had managed to escape them; the nightmares, upon the sea where the scent of his fear was concealed by the overpowering presence of the deep.

Pitch lived.

Recalling back to his final moments power, before they had risen against him and sent him on his new life on the run. Eager to make them pay for how he had suffered such humiliation, he knew he had to bide his time for only a little longer. He knew there was to be a new chosen one. Someone he knew would put an end to any hope he had for regaining his powers. It was only a matter of time before she would be called upon to join the Guardians in what was to be the greatest battle of this age. She would be their greatest asset, and his final chapter.

“But not if I get to her first,” he mused under his breath. He had already formed a plan to…persuade her to join the right side. Whether she wanted to or not wouldn’t matter. He had given Frost a chance to choose, but the fool had chosen wrong. He chose to remain a Guardian, and to rise against him. This time, he would not be so leniant.

“Once the ice sets in…”

Prologue: The Patient (Deadman Wonderland; The Crow and the Swan)- Part One

I remember waking up in a strange and unfamiliar place; surrounded by strange, unfamiliar faces. I can’t recall much more than that. Even now as I wait to reach my destination, wherever that may be, I feel the farther away I get from the laboratory, the less I remember; the less I feel. I’ll never forget her, though. I can’t explain it, but she was different than the others. We connected. I know it sounds sad, but in a way, she’s the closest thing to family I think I’m ever going to know…

Her name was Dr. Noriko Masuda. She was an older woman, but her eyes were always young and full of life. If you looked really close, you could see a tinge of something darker; not sinister, just…regretful. Hers is the first face I can remember.
“Ah. So you’ve decided to join the living,” she would say. I was confused and afraid. I had no recollection of where I came from, nor could I recall my name. There I was, strapped to a hospital bed under a harsh white light, with a strange foreign pain all throughout my body. The doctor pulled out a needle from the small table at her side and flicked it a couple times. I tried to wrestle and break away from my confinement, but the needle had already punctured my skin. She must have seen the panic in my eyes. “Don’t worry, dear Evangeline. It’s only to numb the pain. You’re going to be awfully achy for some time, after all. As is the nature of surgery.”

Evangeline? Is that my name…? Somehow I doubted it. It didn’t fit quite right. And what did she mean by ‘surgery’? What surgery? I had so many questions, but so few answers. As I started to gain the courage to speak, darkness began to close in on my vision. Enveloped in the undeniable urge to sleep, I closed my eyes and drifted into the darkness once more. “Sleep now, Evangeline. The rest will do you good.”

I awoke a second time, but the harsh white light was gone and replaced by a faint glow outside the door across the room. My arms were no longer bound to my sides, but I could still feel constriction upon my ankles. Upon the small table at my bedside was a glass of water, two white pills, and a handwritten note. I raised my arm to take the note, fighting the feeling of pins and needles as my body protested against the movement.

 

Drink the water and take those pills as soon as you’ve regained consciousness. It should keep the soreness at bay. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

 

I was skeptical, but even more so, I was parched. I reluctantly took the pills and downed the glass of water. Just as I set down the glass, there was a light knock at the room’s doorway. In it stood the doctor that had put me out the last time I recall being awake. She made her way to the side of my bed and pulled up a nearby stool.
“Smart girl; I know the pills aren’t the best-tasting things in the world, but believe me, you’d thank me if you knew what pain you would’ve been in for if you hadn’t taken the advice,” she smiled as she filled the glass with more water. I took the glass and shot it back without a second thought. I set it back down on the table as I found my voice.
“Who am I?” I asked. The question sounded more like a croak than an intelligible sentence, but she understood me somehow.
“Well, to be honest, those in my position don’t have access to that information.What I can tell you is that you were randomly selected to help our organization find and test new viruses and antibodies to benefit the medical world, and in turn, mankind. You should be very proud,” she explained with a half-hearted grin. The confusion in my eyes triggered a flash on concern in her eyes as her grin faded.
“I’m afraid I can’t tell you any more than that, Evangeline. I could get in a great deal of trouble,” she said with a frown.
“Why are you calling me Evangeline if you don’t know who I am?” I asked. She sighed and looked away, but in her gaze I saw a trace of sadness.
“You remind me remarkably of my younger sister. Her name was also Evangeline, but sadly, she passed away some time ago. Your resemblance is uncanny. I suppose you could call that bittersweet sentiment on my part.”
I looked away in silence, unsure of how to respond. The doctor rose from her spot on the side of the hospital bed and said, “I will let you get back to resting. You’ve got a long road to recovery ahead of you.” She walked out of the room and quietly closed the door behind her. I lay back in my bed, unable to sleep as I struggled to remember some shred of who I was. Anything about my past. Did I have a family? A life?

Hours passed, but my memory remained as hazed as it was when I woke up the first time. The frustration born of helplessness began to set in. I don’t remember falling asleep that night, but to this day, I desperately wish I never woke up to what was waiting for me when I arose in that laboratory for the final time…

Evangeline: The Swan (Deadman Wonderland Character Sheet)

-Name: Evangeline


“Normal/White Swan”Swan.png


-Aliases: The Swan (white or black depending on her state).
-Age: 
22.
-Species: Human (Deadman)

Branches of Sin:

  • Swansong: steel-like feathers burst from Evangeline’s back and arms, forming bird-like, layered wings. She can fire off the blades at will like pieces of shrapnel. She does not have a great deal of control on the aim, but if she can cover an impressive distance with a scattered attack. She only has enough strength to build her full wingspan once, however. After that, she can only regenerate one feather at a time at a cost of excess blood and energy.

    She has been known to also use the wings as a relatively brittle shield that can aid her in less intense times of danger.

  • Curtain Call: at a dangerous loss of blood, Evangeline goes into a kind of “berserker-mode”, where she is driven purely by rage and bloodlust. Using the only blood she has left before her point of exhaustion, she forms a single serrated blade in the palm of her hand, she attacks with reckless abandon with a drastically heightened level of speed and power. However, this burst of energy is very short-lived and it drains her strength rapidly, ending in unconsciousness and a great deal of pain and weakness for a prolonged period of time.
    Each time Curtain Call is activated, it causes her mentality to alter and shift, blurring the line between her white and black swan personas. It is predicted that extended or repetitive use of this condition could result in a permanent Black Swan takeover.

-Skin: Caucasian.
-Hair colour and style/length: Bleach blonde, wavy curls to her lower back.
-Eyes: Brown.
-Body type: Medium height, somewhat stocky, her body has various unsightly scars from what she suspects resulted from experiments conducted on her before and during her involvement the Deadman program; she is very self-conscious about them.
 -Personality: Quiet, soft-spoken and kind, Evangeline enjoys simplicity for the most part. She is musically inclined, being a very talented jazz and blues singer (but that is the extent of her artistic talent). It is rare that she gets angry, but when she is, it’s generally best to stay clear as she has a slight temper and tends to hold grudges.
-Likes: the colour purple, quiet areas, jazz, rock and metal music, simplicity, fruits and vegetables, horror movies.
-Dislikes: being cold, being put on the spot, clowns, most animals, doing things with her hands (she’s never been good with instruments, arts and general control).
 -Theme Song(if any): ‘Civilian’ by Wye Oak, ‘Mz. Hyde’ by Halestorm
