The Red-Haired Uchiha kept on analyzing her surroundings, even as her friend kept teasing her. Isabella was grateful to Mirabelle for taking her out of her stupor, after the doomsday. She remembered their encounter on the beach fondly, even if she had to be rescued back from almost zero health afterwards.
But truthfully, they haven't had much contact with eachother for the better part of the last 2 years. Isabella had been pretty reclusive. Choosing to ignore most of the questions, Isabella voiced.
The rumors say that this are has been unstable lately. Throughout these two years, I don't think I've ever heard as many people witnessing strange happenings as what appears to be happening here. I heard something similar is happening up West.
That's when a strange person appeared to join the group.
I've heard whispers of strange happenings, but it's the first time I'm hearing about tears or portals...
Isabella said, looking into the eyes of this stranger, her trained vision looking for any signs of dishonesty.
It appears you might have more information than us, nameless one.
While meeting these two strangers, it was clear that they were friendly or at least known to each other, which put Nadja at ease somewhat, that there was other people investigating and looking into these rifts. Both beautiful ladies, Nadja wondered where they came from or if they all looked like this, it was a distinct difference to her northern home. At the response to the red haired womans inquiry she gave a slight gentle nod and proceeded to explain what she knew.“I know you’re not really ignoring the truths here Izzy!” she laughed for a moment but her jovial nature quickly turned serious moments after. The mentioning of rumors was far reaching, even more with another Rift up west. “Yea- after this one we can check it out as well” she said but turning towards a newcomer. She too had her hand in the pot concerning the rifts.
“Truth be told ladies, the information pertaining to these anomalies are far in between. No proper research has been conducted to get conclusive answers aside from those who ventured in and came back. They are quite connections, to the past…future and even other worlds if we go based on the assumptions. Abzu’s headassery two years ago really ripped us a new one” she said with a look of disdain in her eyes.
Now to business again. “There’s a Rift not too far from here. My friend and I intended on checking it out ourselves, feel free to join us…but do be warned…”
She said turning her back to the newcomer. “We don’t know what’s on the other side of it, we might not even come back alive. If that’s a risk you’re willing to take, then so be it. Name’s Mira, why not introducing yourself and what your capable of- that way we can coordinate better” she said now walking into the direction of the Rift.
She would gesture to Isabella. “We’ll keep a close eye on her, but she might prove useful…so bare with me ok” she said mentally through an illusion, immediately dispelling afterwards. The newcomer's interest in the Rift aligned with the duo's own, though it's up to all of them to pull their slack. Void Infusion gained.
( Genjutsu: Ba-doko-ru Ninnin ) Illusion Technique: Myriad of Mockingbirds
(Mukō: Senmon Chūnyū) – Void: Specialized InfusionRank: B
Chakra Cost: 20 (-5 per turn)
Damage Points: N/A
Description: This is a very discrete genjutsu, both in it's casting and it's effect. To cast, the user simply needs to do an hand gesture, in the direction of the target. It doesn't change anything about surroundings with the exception of people, and the immediate terrain they're placed. In essence, it allows the user to change how someone perceives someone else, and even create illusionary copies of people the user knows. The illusion is complimented with slight changes to the terrain, like bending foliage, opening doors, etc, but only if manipulated by the illusionary people. It can also remove people from the target's perspective, or remove certain characteristics of someone within sensory range of the target. While inside the genjutsu, the target is free to move and speak, which the user is able to respond through any of the illusionary creations, or him/herself, case the user chooses not to disappear.
It masks slight ambient alteration by "hidden" people, such as footsteps and speech, but not techniques. Likewise, the illusionary people can't perform techniques, only speak and interact through body motions.
*Lasts 4 turns max*
*While using it, the user cannot use any additional Genjutsu on the target and is limited to 2 additional techniques per turn*
Type: Void Infused Artifact
Range: Short – Long
Description: Whenever the user uses a technique within a field of their specializations, they have a 35% chance to gain a single Void Infusion, occurring at most once every two turns.
Challenging the Rift: Fall of Chungsu
Mirabelle (Mirai), Isabella (Lili), Nadja (Zatanna)
These tears or portals have been circulating and cropping up since, as your friend mentioned, the fight of the Gods and indeed that there has been no concrete information with it. However we can certain piece together information or rather cross out things that they arent. I have theories of what has been happening and hoping that with exploring them we may be able to find more information, but I will stress these are only theories, but please before I go on...
Flourishing her cloak to reveal most of her body, armoured and showing off her tools she would introduce herself.
I am known as Narberal Gamma.
Nadja would go on to say....
With these cropping up randomly after the fall of the Gods, this isnt likely some new technique or chakra based phenomenon, in that, I dont think there is a specific figure or authority causing these rifts, at least not one that only has access to chakra. While some space time techniques exists, these seem to be different or almost... naturally made?
Nadja was quizzical with a furrowed brow as she thought about her notes, but then came to a stop as she didnt want to over burden them with information or give them false assumptions going into this rift. As she reiterated to herself, it was all hypothetical and needed to be tested.
