Snow AngelHe only caught a glimpse of her face before he knew what he had to do. The mountain ledge rumbled under his feet as he ran towards the mouth of the cave, reaching out to her. Chisoku heard the thunderous booming of the avalanche, but all he cared about was getting to her. He needed to save her.Snow Angel9 months ago in Scraps More Like This
The snowflakes in the air fell gracefully as the snow settled beneath their feet. Eclipse dissipated the barrier that had protected him and Dreymeil from the avalanche around them. White snow had engulfed the entire mountainside, swallowing all of the trees that had stood tall only a few minutes ago. The two demons climbed out from the pocket of air the barrier had created, and onto the fresh layer of snow surrounding them.
"Chisoku? He... h-he went in there didn't he?" Dreymeil began, as his blue eyes scanned the vast white landscape to the spot where he had last seen his friend. The entrance of the cave was completely gone; buried under snow and stone.
"Indeed... He went after that g

"YOU'RE LEAVING?! WHAT? HOW COME? I THOUGHT YOU LIKED IT HERE!" Dreymeil shouted in shock. "So... WHY?" he asked, with wide eyes. He stared down at Cisaya in disbelief.
Cisaya had to plug her ears and wait for Dreymeil to stop yelling, before she answered him. "Ah well... I've just been feeling a little... homesick, y'know? I've been staying here at Xsainu castle for about a month... but I've been traveling before that for a long time too..." she started. "So, I guess I just want to visit South Port again and see my family...
Dreymeil gave her that look of bewilderment the whole time she was talking. Finally, he blinked and straightened up. "I'll pack my stuff, one second." he said.
"Wait what? You don't have to go with me-" Cisaya cut herself off when she saw Dreymeil turn around and run down the hallway to his room. "... Agh..." she shook her head and groaned.
Cisaya and Dreymeil were standing at the gates of Xsainu castle, with Chisoku and Eclipse staying by the doors. The demon s

Eclipse and Chisoku found Cisaya by the stairs, surrounded by a swarm of little demon spawns. What was shocking for them was the fact the girl wasn't chasing them around in fury like she normally would, but was instead letting them sit with her. They could clearly tell there was something wrong from her whole body language and facial expression.
"Cisaya... what are you doing here...?" Eclipse asked carefully.
"... Nothing." Cisaya answered simply, and rested her chin on her knees, as she watched demon spawns by her feet scamper around.
"As if we're going to believe that." Chisoku scoffed, and leaned against the wall close by. "You normally don't look so... meh. What's up?"
She looked up from the demon spawns, to the necromancer and overlord in front of her. This was the first time they were here asking about her problems. Cisaya didn't want to brush them off and keep to herself, knowing how annoying that could be when people did that to her. Letting out a breath, she shrugged a bit. "I

The crystal droplets came falling from the sky, landing on the glass panes of the window. It was a sleepy day with the rain outside and all of the openings in the castle sealed shut. A light fog surrounded Xsainu castle, like a dank blanket of white. Aside from the patter of water on the roof, there was little noise in the fortress.
Cisaya stared outside, but her focus was on watching raindrops race down the side of window, and the spirals of dull colours inside of them. Everything seemed to have a layer of gray scale over their original hue. The sky was covered in dark clouds, and the city down below looked as if it was painted with a palette of black and white. Even the furniture and decorations inside the castle seemed to look paler than usual.
"He's been gone a while now..." she murmured. Her eyes stayed up, as she watched the rain fall upon the city. Cisaya couldn't see too far past the mist and it bothered her. She couldn't see into the distance, guessing where he was.

A week passed by in Xsainu castle. The rain clouds slowly cleared, and the sun returned to the sky once again. It took days before all of the fog lifted, and the land below dried. Life seemed to return in the city, and within the fortress walls as well.
During the first few days, everyone was in a dreary mood and on edge. The demons would frequently visit and stay by Cisaya's side, waiting for her to get better. She showed slow signs of recovery, but they stayed convinced that she would be fine.
Dreymeil was the one who ended up skipping most of his duties to spend time with her. After he had dealt with Rosalie's father, he had given the girl a decent sum of money that would be enough for the girl to buy her own house. He parted ways with Rosalie since then, and had hardly left the study to do anything else.
Whenever Chisoku or Eclipse would drop by to visit, they usually caught Dreymeil in the middle of a long and heartfelt apology. All of them knew that Cisaya wouldn't be able to hea

"Eliiise~ Come here girl." Dreymeil patted his lap as he sat in bed. The cat jumped onto his bed and curled up on his legs, purring softly. "You're just so frickin' cute, heh." the demon smiled and stroked its back. "I'm sure the others will warm up to you soon. Anyways, night girl." he yawned, and lay down on his back, shutting his eyes.
"Ow, ow, ow!" Cisaya whined.
"Hold still, I need to clean the scratch." Eclipse muttered, as he dabbed Cisaya's cheek with an alcohol-soaked cotton swab.
"I really don't like that cat... ow!" Cisaya winced again. She let Eclipse put a bandage on her cheek, before pulling back from him.
"You dislike just about anything 'cute'..." the necromancer reminded her.
"Yeah, but this is different." the girl crossed her arms. "Dreymeil's been spending all his time with that cat! He's in love with it or something!" Cisaya looked displeased.
"He really is affectionate towards it..." Eclipse nodded. "Probably because he used to own a cat just like it. I believe..

About the Game
Now there's a lot I have to say now that the whole game has been finished, and a lot of it has to do with the fact Demon Hunt is only the beginning of a big story saga I've been planning for a long time. I'll also be discussing the characters and whole story of the visual novel briefly so those that are still new to the whole thing can catch up.
Let's start with the background info!
Demon Hunt takes place in the fantasy world of Reflection, a land where demons and humans live in high tensions. This world is made up of several islands, and the most infamous of them is Xsainu, where the King of Demons, Chisoku, has been sealed away a century ago. This evil

She wavered, and had to grip the doorframe more tightly to keep herself up. A hundred emotions were still racing through her, but on the outside, she felt dead. Cisaya could hardly register everything Dreymeil said, yet his eyes made it clear he meant everything.
Dreymeil sneered at her and grabbed the edge of the door. He began to close it, like a barrier between himself and Cisaya. "... So anyways, if you don't mind. I'll go back to what I was doing-"
Right before he could completely shut the door, Cisaya moved forward and grabbed Dreymeil, then buried her face against his chest. Her shaky hands clung to his arms, and she was breathing quickly in panic. "I-I'm sorry... I'm so sorry...." Cisaya whimpered, shaking her head in shame. "I didn't know..." she felt like she was on the edge of tears, but forced herself to hold back those emotions. "I just... wanted to help all of you... I-I really wanted to help you-"
The demon cut her off as he set his hand on her shoulder. Cisaya glanced u
Little Faith: Part 1Eclipse made his way through the city, brushing pass a few citizens and bystanders like a phantom. Even without looking to their faces, he knew they all regarded him with disdain or fear. After all, there was no other way to look upon a demon. He sighed, avoiding glances and stepping away from limelight to find the fastest route out of town.Little Faith: Part 13 years ago in Scraps More Like This
This was his routine, going from Xsainu castle to the Dark Crystal mine right outside of the kingdom. It was a tedious chore, and most would say, pointless. The enchanted minerals were all nullified, and his mission to restore them was still nothing more than a distant goal. But he was under Chisoku's orders, and he wouldn't abandon his duty until the Dark Crystals would be of use again.
"Perhaps it's better that it never happens..." the necromancer muttered to himself. He knew the consequences of unleashing a source of Dark Magic so large upon the world. It would taint hundreds of people, and attract demons and beasts from all over the realm. The

"Sorry... guess I dozed off there..." Cisaya mumbled. She still felt tired, and much groggier than before. "Ugh..." she grumbled.
Eclipse gave her a look with a hint of concern, before he cleared his throat and packed up his things. "I'm sure sleeping on the table can't be comfortable. Why don't you go back to your room and relax for a while? There's still another hour before dinner." he told her.
Cisaya only nodded, and stood up. "Anyways, thanks for letting me hang out with you Eclipse. See you later." she smiled wearily at him, before heading off back to her room. She wasn't sure she really wanted to sleep anymore, but kept walking with her head down until she was back in front of the door to her room. "Agh. What a slow day..." Cisaya muttered and walked in, heading straight for her bed.
That was, until she noticed her closet door was open, and heard some rustling coming from inside. Cisaya raised an eyebrow curiously and walked over to the doorway and peered in. "Who's there?"

Here I am once again, for another character analysis. This time, I'm going to write (and try to develop at the same time) one of my newer characters: Cisaya. Most of you might know her from my visual novel, 'Demon Hunt' as the main female lead, and know the basics of her personality. But there still sides of her I haven't shown yet, but might show through soon. Anyways, this is going my first analysis on a female character... who's not a demon... Only because I plan on giving Cisaya a bigger role with the main story with the others. You can say she's almost a part of 'Team Chisoku' now. So let's see how this all turns out, shall we?
So now, onto the character analysis for our one and only Demon Slayer: Cisaya
Her outfit consists of her black jacket, with orange trim along the hems and sleeves that end at her elbows. She wears matching fingerless gloves with tight pants underneath. Similar to the demons, Cisaya doesn't have a shirt either, but that's just the trend going on over there

Most humans in the city weren't very well off, and food was expensive enough as it was.

"I have to admit I'm curious... why this room has so many beds. I remember you saying you only had a brother, correct?" Eclipse mused.
"Yes, that's right. Well... There's a reason for why the set up is like this." Alexandria started. "My parents were... apothecaries. This whole house is a bit like a clinic. We used to take in the sick or injured, and even homeless orphans if they needed it." she explained.
That information came as yet another surprise to him. "Is that true? Hm... so your home is like a sanctuary for those in need..." he murmured. It was starting to make sense, even though he had never heard of anything like it. "Well...

One day, in the faraway land of Xsainu, the demonic henchman named Dreymeil was taking a stroll through town. It was part of his job to patrol the city under overlord Chisoku's rule, however Dreymeil used this more of an opportunity to scout for women.
"Man, what a slow day. I haven't seen a single hot chick all morning." Dreymeil complained to himself, as he walked down a street with his hands behind his head. He was looking ahead in boredom, until he heard a faint noise coming from a side alley. Dreymeil stopped and glanced around, listening for the sound again.
Dreymeil looked down, and noticed a cat had walked out of the alley and was rubbing up against his leg. "Hey little fella!" he grinned and crouched down. The demon reached out his hand, and the cat stayed still to let him pet it. "You a stray? Heh..." Dreymeil picked up the cat, and continued to pet its soft white fur. "If that's the case, I'll just take you home with me~ How's that sound?" he asked, and the cat purr
