[[caption-width-right:350:The Tower is awake...]]

-->''An ominous tower has sent invitations of a new tournament. Telling its promise of rewards: wealth, wishes, and more. But what hidden secrets does this tower have in store for it's contestants?''

->In the heart of the tower sleeps an android whose energy derives from living beings around it. After completing its eons old mission of collecting knowledge throughout the universe, it reconstructs itself into a tower, sheltering all of the archived knowledge within. In an urgent search for more energy, the tower reawakens and lures its combatants into a false tournament. All fight their way out for their reward, little do they know the horror that lies before them should they lose.

-> Each doorway and floor of the tower is comprised of the android's memories and are projected as physical holograms that can very well kill you at the wrong step. These memories contain environments from all over the universe, try to expect the unexpected. Nothing is as it seems...

!!!Shikyo Akayami and Jack Tayian
-> Created by http://great-leo.deviantart.com/
->Lost in Round 1 to Fool
* Shikyo is an ill tempered, hot headed {{Cat Girl}} {{Bounty Hunter}} that persists in finding the person who killed her loved one. {{Love Makes You Crazy}} as they say.
* Jack is an anthropomorphic dog character that follows Shikyo loyally, despite the obvious threats she's shown to give him. He searches for Shikyo's targets and seems to hide in the background.
* {{Action Girl}}: Shikyo.
* {{Badass Normal}}: While mythical creatures, Shikyo and Jack are relatively "Human" creatures. No super powers as we know of in any form. And They're going to take on a tournament in the universal archives.
* {{Berserk Button}}: Shikyo does not want to hear you tell her that her mission is meaningless.
* {{Brains And Brawn}}: Jack is the brains, Shikyo is the brawn.
* {{Butt Monkey}}: Of most fan art of Jack, he's usually seen overpowered by Shikyo. Not that it's too far off, as Shikyo seems to frequently ignore and threaten him according to the audition comic.
* {{Cat Smile}}: More like a cat frown in Shikyo's case. She rarely smiles to begin with.
** Nai on the other hand does this throughout most of the audition.
* {{Cowardly Sidekick}}: Jack, oh so much.
* {{Guns Akimbo}}: Shikyo's means of fighting. She wields two bayonet pistols of different bullet types, [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience colored red for the normal bullets, and blue for the laser bullets.]]
* {{Hypocritical Humor}}: The entire audition comic seems to build up just how hypocritical Shikyo is.
** "I'm not going to some silly get together a bunch of battle crazed detectives are invited to!" just a page ago she talked about how she took out a target because he badmouthed her.
** "Obssessed over a hunk of tech. How shallow can you be?" What's Shikyo's biggest drive again? Oh yes, revenge.
* {{Jerkass}}: It's practically in Shikyo's bio.
* {{Names To Run Away From Really Fast}}: To those who don't know, "Shikyo" means "Death" in Japanese.
* {{Scars Are Forever}}: Jack has a nice cut running from his cheek down to the side of his throat.
** Jack appears to be missing an eye, if his eye patch amounts to anything.
* {{Universal Drivers License}}: Shikyo seems capable of flying a helicopter... [[DrivingStick until she crashed it besides the Tower.]]
* {{What Could Have Been}}: There's implications that another group of characters were considered for this tourney. But they were busy and Shikyo took the call.
** Great-Leo had explained he was originally going to have the duo crash INTO the Tower.
* {{You Gotta Have Blue Hair}}: Shikyo.
* {{Youkai}}: A notable feature of the duo, Shikyo's listed as a bakeneko (Monster cat) and Jack is listed as a bakeinu (Monster dog). Thing is neither seem very powerful in the magic department. In their audition, their [[BiTheWay perky bartender "Nai"]] points out that all sorts of youkai exist in their dimension.

!!!Taeky (Not Pictured)
