|Niwa's Recent News|
|They said this was a city for our kind, they said it was a safe haven from the rest of the world. This was suppose to be the city where we where safe from regular humans. But, in a city where Meta-Humans run rampant, is there such thing as safety? When taking what you want is as simple as waving your hand, or closing your eyes, how can there be law? In this city, the truth is there is only one source of law, and that are the different criminal organizations that have formed all around us. The only order is that of the darkest part of humanity, of criminal organizations where the strong thrive while the weak gasp for air. This is Niwa Nights.. This is our home. |
Can you survive it?

The most common first impression of Hachi is that she's a sweet, friendly girl who will help out anyone, even if it puts her at a disadvantage. First impressions aren't always true, but in Hachi's case, people tend to be right. Sacrificing and putting others before herself have always been her trademarks, even as a child. Being selfish just simply isn't an option for the girl.
Even at a relatively young age, Hachi's motherly instincts are very strong. Whether it's a small animal, a child, or a grown person, Hachi has the urge to take care of it. After her mother passed away when she was a child, she didn't hesitate to take on those motherly qualities. As she grew, she learned to cook, clean, and take care of her family as good as any adult. That loving, motherly nature extended into her friendships as well.
Despite being agreeable and nice, Hachi is still human and gets angry too. However, rather than yelling or fighting, she tends to withdraw and shy away from conflict. If something makes her angry or upset, she tries to hide it and work it out on her own. If someone tries to help her out, she involuntarily pushes them away, not wanting to burden them with her troubles. Besides, just because she's small doesn't mean that she's weak.
Hachi grew up in the quiet suburbs surrounding Niwa as the first child to Fumiko and Ichigo Hanada. Her mother died giving birth to their second child, a boy named Kazuya, when Hachi was only nine. Determined to keep some semblance of family normalcy, young Hachi immediately took over as mother to her baby brother. She would come home from school and make sure he was fed and taken care of. As she grew older she took over all of the household chores and learned how to cook. Their father, a more traditional man, found it difficult to take care of the baby and the house, and appreciated his daughter's willingness to help, even though it meant she would have to grow up fast.
Without a complaint or any hesitation, Hachi gladly took over her mother's responsibilities. Whether it was an innate desire to be needed or an overwhelming motherly instinct, no one could tell, but whatever it was gave Hachi her determination. Her father worried that her focus on her brother would be detrimental to her schooling, but Hachi continued to do well. She made friends easily, participated in school activities, and still found time to come home and take care of her brother and the house. The sometimes overwhelming amount of responsibility didn't seem to wear on her, but then again, she hid her feelings well.
Truth be told, Hachi was growing more and more tired after each passing year. Even if her strength sometimes wavered, her love and dedication to her family never could. By the time she turned sixteen and her brother seven, they had settled into a comfortable routine. Life was normal, and even though Hachi was practically an adult in a child's body, she couldn't complain. Everything was going so smoothly.
And then Hachi discovered she wasn't quite as normal as she seemed.
While at the playground with Kazuya, she saw a young boy fall off of the jungle gym and onto a small rock. The boy was fine, but his knee was bleeding heavily because of where the rock had nicked him. The sight of all the blood frightened him, and he started to cry. Without a thought, Hachi went to the boy to comfort him. She wanted to show him that he was okay, that his knee looked worse than it actually was, but when she touched his knee, the bleeding stopped. Even more surprising, the small cut started to heal itself, and soon after, completely disappeared.
Her touch made the boy stop crying, but left Hachi startled. How had it happened? How could the cut be there one second and gone moments later? She tried to push it from her mind—she must have imagined it. A month or two went by and she had all but forgotten about the incident. And then a girl fell down the stairs at school. The girl was lying at the bottom of the stairs, clutching onto her clearly broken arm, crying out because of the pain. Hachi tried to comfort her while other students ran to get help, and when she touched the girl, she stopped crying.
It feels better...it feels better... the girl said, catching her breath. The pain she was in just...stopped. Was it shock, or something else? The girl's arm had been dangling in an unnatural position, but after Hachi touched it, the bones seemed to look a little less crooked, like they were starting to mend. The girl looked in horror at her arm—it looked better but still not quite right—and was shocked that the pain had simply gone away. Hachi, however, was even more horrified. Something wasn't right.
After school that day Hachi went home and tried not to think about it; she helped Kazuya with his homework and prepared dinner for when their father got home. She didn't talk about what happened, she didn't want to scare Kazuya and didn't want her father to think she was a freak. What happened at school just couldn't be real. If it was, then it meant Hachi wasn't normal. And if she wasn't normal...
The thoughts about what happened plagued her, along with the looming knowledge that she hadn't imagined it. As she peeled potatoes for a stew, she watched the knife slice away the skin so delicately. If she had stopped that boy's bleeding, if she could help mend that girl's arm...then what if she was hurt? Impulsively, she sliced at her finger, causing a small cut in her skin. She curled her other fingers around the small wound, but when she let go, her finger continued to bleed.
Kazuya, seeing that his sister was hurt, rushed over to see if she was okay. In his haste, he reached up to grab her hand and caught his own finger on the knife. Hachi brushed the knife away and grabbed his hand. Don't worry, I'm okay! he said, and when she let go of his little hand, she saw that he was. The trickle of blood had stopped. The cut was gone. He was fine, but Hachi wasn't.
The hospital that the girl with the broken arm was staying at called Hachi's house that night, wanting to talk to her. Dutifully, she lied about the incident, claiming that nothing had happened at all, that the girl must have been in shock, and told her father the same. But she knew. She knew that there was something wrong with her; she knew that she had the ability to do something other people couldn’t. She wasn't normal, and she feared that she would only wind up hurting her family. In bed that night, Hachi knew what she had to do to keep her family normal and safe.
She had to leave.
So, amidst silent tears, she packed a small backpack with clothing, essentials, and what little money she had saved from summer jobs. The thought of leaving her family was more painful than any wound, but she knew that keeping them safe was more important than anything. She left a long note for her father, explaining everything and urging him to forget about her and to move on. Her father was an important businessman and had a reputation at stake; he had no room in his life for a freak daughter. She finished her letter with the hope that he would still love her, that he would find a way to forgive her. She left a note for Kazuya as well, telling him how much she loved him and how she would always be rooting for him.
Early that next morning she boarded a train headed for Niwa with little more than a backpack filled with fragments of her life and a shadow of a plan to survive. She had heard whispers of a gang of kids that lived in the city, and thought that perhaps if she could find them, she could find herself a new family. Maybe, just maybe they needed someone to take care of them…
Hachi has the ability to heal, but it has limitations.
- Completely heal very small cuts, like paper cuts and small, shallow cuts in the skin.
- Completely heal burns up to 1st degree; lessen the damage of 2nd degree burns; and do little to nothing to heal 3rd degree burns.
- Partially heal deeper wounds, like stab or bullet wounds. She can close the skin to stop bleeding, but the wound will remain. Internal damage cannot be repaired.
- Partially heal broken bones. A small fracture can be healed completely, but an actual break can only be partially, and rather sloppily, mended.
- Reduce pain. Pain from lesser wounds that she can partially heal (such as gunshot and stab wounds) can be completely masked for a short period of time (up to a half-hour). For more extreme or fatal injuries, the person will still feel pain, it will just be reduced.
- Do any of the above things to herself
- Heal fatal or internal wounds
- Heal/Partially heal more serious wounds several times a day. Hachi has to use energy to heal, so the more she heals, or the more serious the wound she heals, the weaker she will get.
Hachi arrives in Niwa with only a backpack containing clothing, a few toiletries, some money, and a journal.

About the only time losing is more fun than winning is when you're fighting temptation.
