TwistedFates is a story about two men of different royalties who go head to head in a war that spawned after the genocide of the banished partition of an empire. Luke Hirigani, head of half of the Hunter forces, leads the assault against his ex-master, Xenon Naginata, the Oniyan Emperor and ultimate ruler of Corruption who is the byproduct of a sentient alien virus and a young boy named Jake. Unfortunately for Luke, he ends up having to collaborate with his master on several accounts. Will each exposure to Naginata bring him closer to his relapse, or will he conquer the parasitic conscience within him?

This story takes place on a Phantom Island known as the Land of Seven Riches, or La Seri for short. Each district is named after its most prominent ore. The ore actually serves as a tracker of the district’s Life Stream; the Life Stream is the collection of Life Forces/Auras in a selected area. A “Life Force” is another way of referring to a person’s aura; the semi-tangible entity that enables a person to channel pure or corrupted energy through their body and weapons. The overall Life Stream of La Seri is what powers the Great Hurricane, because it is mostly pure. However, there are "Cracks" in the Life Stream. These Cracks are created by the overabundance of Corruption.

Naginata, being the head of the Corrupted Life Stream, is trying to infect the Phantom Island and its inhabitants so that he could break out of the Diamonian barrier (The Great Hurricane) and spread across Ambrosia. However, with the rising forces against him and the humane senses of his host, Jake, the task proves to be difficult. Part of the Parasite King’s method is through using his spawns, Parasites, along with brain-washing his victims under a collective “Hive Mind”.


General Geography and Demographics:

La Seri is a collection of islands that actually used to be one piece of land that was over time split into several parts by the surrounding water systems.  The further west one progresses, the closer they get to the ultimate source of Corruption. To give a general idea of how vast La Seri is (and even how large Ambrosia is), the widest district is Silvania, which in total is 3125 miles wide. Its districts are overlooked by a counsel (except  Jagaia, which refuses to use a counsel system and instead uses individual village chief systems). You will see mentionings of ore and gems. Serian ore and gems are actually alive in a sense (but not self aware), similar to the plants and shrubbery of La Seri.

Silvania is split into 8 miniature islands and houses the Mithril Sea. Its inhabitants, a race of teal-skinned Serians with fish-like properties (gills and fins). It is a generally flat marsh land, and the Silvanians are able to dwell both on this land and under the water. Its underwater homes do feature “Bubble Houses” in which outsiders can dwell. Even its surface houses contain pools in which Silvanians can relax. The Life Stream of this area is indicated by silver ore.

Saphania is a heavily forested biome with one mountain range, the Saphra Mountains, on its western side.  Its villages, similar to Auron’s subdistructs, is organized on a circular level. However, the closer inland one ventures, the closer it gets to the Corrupted village, Omega village. Its people have great nightvision and hearing, accompanied by a variety of feline and canine-based ears.  People of Saphania are often tanner than other races, though there are instances of light-skinned Saphanians. Saphanians who live in areas of heavy shrubbery often make tree houses with hopes of reducing the chances of their house being broken into by Ferals, who are Corrupted Saphanians. Any technology they interact with is often infused with a certain aspect of nature. They rarely chop trees and build around them. The Life Stream of this area is indicated by sapphire gems.

Auron is a more urban-based district and the district with the highest point from sea level. It contains three subdistricts: Central, Uptown, and Downtown, each connected via the Serian Rail System. It is a futuristic setting (save for the Downtown area, which is more of a rural area), with skyscrapers, floating highways (referred to as skyways) as well as “Groundways”.  It also contains the most famous Education System in La Seri, as well as many expected accomodations of an urban setting. The people of Auron, though as close to an “Average Ambrosian” as one could get, have unstable Life Forces and are therefore targeted frequently by the Corrupted. However, thanks to the Hunters, Auron has yet to fall. The Life Stream of this area is indicated by gold ore.

Jagaia is a jungle/grassland biome that houses undoubtedly the meanest, toughest Serians of the Pure Life Stream.  Similar to Saphania, Jagaia contains many villages, often centered in jungle areas within walking distance of any water systems. Similar to Saphanians, Jagaians often make tree houses  to attack unsuspecting travelers. Their houses are usually made of stone-like material, and they limit their contact with technology, though some of the younger generations have found interest in Serian Tech. At night, unlike Saphanians, some Jagaians stand on night watch to protect their villages from intrusions by “Dragons”, Corrupted Jagaians. Because of their sturdy resistance to Corruption, they are formidable opponents of the Corrupted, having engaged in a war with Oniyex during the events of Rose for Shurinai. The Life Stream of this area is indicated by Jade gems.

Rubanyo is a desolate island and a faction of Oniyex. There are virtually no Rubanyans of pure blood left due to the quick spread of Corruption across the island. It is rumored that this land is where the Oniyan Emperor (Xenon Naginata) releases his pure venom deposits inside the inland, rendering the island to be uninhabitable. The highly feared Rubanyo shore is the only location where the quickly declining Ruby gems are located. It’s a miracle that there are Rubies left.

•Oniyex, previously Platinia and Ezmeralda (respectively), is the land of the Corrupted. Its very soil is tainted. This is a wasteland/snow mountain biome; dead trees and patches of corrupted grass are scattered across the land; at the westernmost point is the mansion home of the Corrupted Emperor. Above is Diamonia, the cloudy floating island of the black diamond. Within the White Mountains, there is a springy grassland region known as the Bloodstone Crown. Each of these locations are homes to one of the three Warlords, Parasite Kings and a Parasite Queen that controls the Oniyan military force. The people of Oniyex, known as the Corrupted, are infected with the Corruption virus and often live in lively little underground towns. Their technology is often powered by Tainted magic, though they do make use of average Serian tech.

Main forces:

Hunters: A large faction of talented people trained to protect the innocents from the deathly grasp of Corruption. There are two partitions: The Rebels, who partake in more offensive missions against the Corrupted and the Slayers, who focus on defensive missions. The Rebels, lead by Luke Hirigani, are centered in Auron, and the Slayers, secretly led by Rolaeko Menguishi of the Saphanian Council, are centered in Saphania. While both have likenesses to regular secret service, it’s their powers and exposure to Corruption that make them formidable.

Executioners: A group of ruthless killers who side with no one and exercise the will of their leader, Jon Welkov. They are terrorists in a sense; since some of them are unable to combat the Corrupted head on without becoming Tainted themselves, they often target outsiders, supporters of Corruption, and sometimes Hunter cadets.

Outsiders: Split into two partitions: for and against Corruption. These people have not officially joined Hunters or Corrupted, but they support either side where they can. Some Outsiders eventually do join one of the other forces. They are scattered across La Seri and have no official leader; however, some of them do follow a leader. For example. Felix, Eto, Cid, and Raven, four outsiders in Western Downtown Auron, are led and advised by Feng Gataelo.

Corrupted: The infected, mutated, often mentally unhinged followers of Xenon Naginata. They are playful, youthful, incredibly sexual, and disgusting (to their opposers).  These creatures are seen as brainwashed and united under the “Hive Mind”, which has varying holds on them (the stronger Corrupted have the option of disconnecting from the Hive Mind before it automatically takes hold of them again). They are undead in a sense, and because their master, Xenon Naginata, detests mindless violence, they have a custom of not killing their targets in cold blood. Ironically, their targets end up dying anyway if a Parasite or its blood invades their body. Due to the magic of the Pure Life Stream, they are unable to show their true forms and can only do so in completely tainted areas, such as Nests.  There are many partitions of the Corrupted, including Guardians, Parasites, Warlords, Parasite Kings and Queens.

Where to start reading:

       TwistedFates is a multi-part story that is generally split into three main chapters: For Better or Worse, Rose for Shurinai, and Dawn of a New Area. You can read about these parts in these locations. I have yet to release information regarding Dawn of a New Era, but you can ask me questions or check out twistedfates-series.deviantart…!

I THINK THAT’S IT GUYS. If you have any questions, feel free to pitch them to me! Thanks so much for your time, and I hope you enjoy this story as it unfolds c: <3

Ahhhh here you go guys, have an intro to TwistedFates I started typing while I was on sugar high. I don't know; I figured this would make it slightly easier to get into reading the dang thang; hopefullyyyy this helps in some way. ;u;

It's hard to believe that Luke's supposed to be royalty. xD


TwistedFates is the story of a sentient alien virus' (Xenon Naginata) attempted conquest of a world that exists in the Phantom Dimension, a dimension that doesn't appear on the universal map. Within that world is a Phantom Island, and that is where the virus is trapped and instead focuses on corrupting the island so that he can break the magical barrier that cuts him off from the outside world.

During his conquest, he comes across a man whose grandfather, the Platinian Emperor, was murdered by the father of one of the future Oracles. The virus then led a genocide against the Platinum Empire by Corrupting a banished partition of the empire, referred to as the "Grey Skins". He corrupts two men of royalty (Gale and Luke), he and his siblings passing their twisted knowledge unto them. It was the attempted conversion of a young boy (Terry) into the Heart of a Nest (a large breeding ground for Corruption's "children") that Luke realized just how far Xenon was willing to go to spread himself across the Phantom Island. Putting aside his connection to the Hive Mind, he rescues Gale and Terry and runs away, eventually establishing half of an organization that fights against the very thing that keeps him alive.

After Luke comes to notice that he had children with the girlfriend of his rival (Jon Welkov), he attempts to kill and incinerate them out of fear that he passed the Corruption on to them. This of course angers his twisted ex-boss, who prepares to "discipline" him, but instead gets caught up working with his ex-right hand man to destroy their common rival, who wants to destroy a dormant Nest in the Saphra mountains with napalm, endangering the lives of thousands of Saphanians who live close by. Their knowledge of his promotion in the Auronian political system came to be when they realized that Welkov had framed Gale's childhood friend (Andy) as a terrorist.

After that war, Xenon Naginata is rumored to have died, having been sealed off by his enraged brother, Destiny, who also had to seal himself and their sister (Incubus the Benevolent) off in the process. Luke, having been affected by his ex-boss' Manipulation technique, forces himself into a coma so that the Corruption doesn't develop and he is able to handle his tainted "Anima" from within himself.

Xenon, Destiny, and Incubus are resurrected by a completely unhinged Travis Naginata (Xenon's son), and Xenon proceeds to command his son to get his unit to take Gale back before he becomes the Azure Oracle he was destined to become.



There are many elements in this story, such as how technology links to reality and mentality (the Anima concept), there's magic, sci-fi and a war involving many "undead" people (the Corrupted and ex-Corrupted). It's really loaded. <:3

This is a map of the Phantom island, and here are a few pictures of characters and creatures from the series:

I'm even working on a wiki (not sure when I'll be changing domains though), and there are many side stories, spin-offs, and even a crossover game in the making.

Thanks for reading! ;D
