About Seventh Chord
[/td]
Seventh Chord is one of the many divisions of Voluspa and is part of the faction of Voluspa who have come to strongly oppose the research of abnormal abilities and those who possess them. Seventh Chord is a special division responsible for engaging Dissonantes, the name given by Seventh Chord to those who possess abnormal abilities, and neutralising them. Of course, rather than kill, Seventh Chord uses a special Rune to strip defeated opponents of their abilities when neutralising targets.

Seventh Chord is unique in that while they do combat against individuals with abnormal abilities, no member of Seventh Chord actually possess any abnormal abilities of their own. Instead, only regular humans with no powers are allowed entry into Seventh Chord and all new members must take an examination in order to be accepted into Seventh Chord.
About Voluspa
[/td]
Voluspa is a large, global organisation who have operated in the shadow for an unknown period of decades. Voluspa was originally a group of scientists who had taken an interest in individuals with abnormal abilities and created an organisation dedicated to the research of these individuals. This organisation became known as Voluspa. Through Voluspa's research, countless technology breakthroughs were achieved, however the majority of these breakthroughs remained secret.

As the decades passed, Voluspa grew and so did their influence. Voluspa even operated large facilities dedicated to experimentation of individuals with abnormal powers and while much of it was in secret, Voluspa did receive funding from certain governments and corporations. However, certain members of Voluspa wished to profit off of their research and made attempts to remove themselves from the organisation, to which Voluspa responded to aggressively. Eventually, this led to a secret war within Voluspa in which individuals with abnormal powers were used as weapons. In the end, Voluspa eventually collapsed, being divided into several factions with very different ideals who continue to exist to this very day.

Of one of these factions were the Voluspa Japan. While many factions of Voluspa continue to research abnormal abilities, Voluspa Japan has taken a very different stance. After the war that destroyed Voluspa, Voluspa Japan have concluded that research into abnormal abilities is far too dangerous and that these individuals must somehow be relieved of their abilities. For this cause, Voluspa Japan started research into neutralising abnormal powers and after some success, they established Seventh Chord, a division responsible for executing the goal of cleansing the world of abnormal abilities.
Facilities
[/td]
While Voluspa is now a shell of their former glory, Voluspa is still in possession of a large amount of money and assets. As an organisation that has, throughout its entire existence, operated in secrecy, many of its facilities are out of public eyes. Seventh Chord have been assigned one of these facilities as their base of operations on Kaneshima Island.

The facility that Seventh Chord makes use of is a large hotel located close by the Kaneshima Beach known as the Kaneshima Grand Hotel. The hotel itself is owned by Voluspa Japan, although on records, it is owned by one of the many companies that serve as a front for Voluspa. The hotel itself is what you would expect of a high class hotel. Consisting of several floors with rooms to fit almost any family's need and even having a swimming pool and various other luxuries. On the face of it, it would appear no different from any other hotel.

However, what makes this hotel different is its basement levels. While on record, the building has no basement levels and no stairway or elevator access to the basement, the hotel does possess a hidden basement level which serves as the command centre for Seventh Chord. It is where all Seventh Chord's equipment is stored as well as meeting rooms and other facilities used by Seventh Chord. The only way to access the basement levels is through the staff elevators, and even then, a special key is required to access the basement level.

As the Kaneshima Grand Hotel acts as the base of operations for Seventh Chord, members of Seventh Chord have each been assigned a luxury room and the hotel serves as their residence for their duration on Kaneshima Island.
How to Join
[/td]
While Seventh Chord is open to new members, Seventh Chord has very strict joining restrictions, and only characters who can satisfy the criteria of membership are eligible to join Seventh Chord. If you are interested in having a character become a part of Seventh Chord, your character must meet either of the two criteria below:
  • Your character has no abnormal abilities or powers.
  • Your character has been made specifically to be part of Seventh Chord.
If you believe your character to meet one of the above two criteria, then please post the name of your character and a link to their profile in this topic.

If you are planning on making a character specifically for Seventh Chord, I would recommend you to PM Mayu directly so that we can discuss the character and make the application process for the character as smooth as possible.

For characters who have no powers of their own, they will be given a Kiseki as part of their organisation equipment. For further information regarding Kiseki, please refer to the Equipment section which can be found below.
Equipment
[/td]
Members of Seventh Chord have access to a wide range of equipment to help them combat against Dissonantes, the term used to describe individuals with abnormal abilities. The equipment listed here belong to Voluspa and may only be used in Seventh Chord topics.

The equipment that members of Seventh Chord have access to can be found in the below spoiler.

Seventh Chord Equipment

Kiseki
「戦略創造技術兵器」
Kiseki is the main tool Knights of the Seventh Chord use to fight against Dissonantes. Kiseki come in various forms, mainly depending on the user. From swords to guns, and from daggers to bows. A Kiseki can even take the form of cuddly toys and can even shift between multiple forms depending on the complexity of the Kiseki. Kiseki allow humans to use runes by providing energy in order to utilise runes as humans, ordinarily, would not have enough energy to use runes for any extended period of time. The runes used by Knights of the Seventh Chord possess artificial magic created by Voluspa. This artificial magic ranges from transcending physical human limits to magic such as summoning flames.

While a Kiseki may be the greatest strength of a Kiseki User, it is also the greatest weakness. As it is a physical weapon, it is capable of being either damaged or destroyed in battle, meaning that if it suffers extensive damage, it will no longer work. In other words, the Kiseki User will be unable to use runes, and thus unable to use magic. While Kiseki are made to be durable, they cannot sustain extensive direct attacks, and the more complex a Kiseki is, not only is it easier to damage, but more difficult to repair. Most Kiseki are as durable as ordinary weapons, however some may prove more or less durable than others depending on the customisation and type.
Barrier Jacket
「能力無効」
The Barrier Jacket is a protective jacket used by the knights of Seventh Chord. Accidentally discovered when researching a way to neutralise abnormal abilities, the barrier jacket does as its name suggests. It provides protection against various forms of attacks. While it is incapable of nullifying damage completely, it does provide powerful protection against most attacks, and can turn most attacks that would otherwise be fatal into attacks that would only cause moderate damage. Of course, if suitably powerful, a fatal attack will remain fatal, and needless to say taking repeated direct attacks will also cause injury, and possibly death if the wearer is reckless.

The barrier jacket, while called a jacket, is the entire uniform. It covers the entire body, even parts not physically covered. It works on the concept of nullifying a portion of the impact thus resulting in reduced damage. However while the Barrier Jacket may cover the body, it does not cover a Kiseki User's weapon, that is, their Kiseki. It is possible to customise the barrier jacket to make it more effective against certain types of attacks.
Robotic Notes
「機械仕掛けの戦闘空間」
Robotic Notes is a piece of equipment that is able to generate an artificial closed space. This artificial closed space is similar to the I-Space used by Voluspa during the ten year war, but on a much smaller scale. The purpose of Robotics Note is to prevent damage to the real world while fighting Dissonantes. Kiseki Users are able to bring people into their Robotic Notes and other Kiseki Users can freely enter and exit each others' Robotic Notes. The artificial space can only be sustained for as long as the Kiseki User remains in that space, and it is generally impossible to leave without either defeating the Kiseki User, however there are exceptions where it is possible to escape.

The environment of the artificial space generated by the Robotic Notes differ from user to user, but they are specially designed so that the environment gives the Kiseki User an environmental advantage in both that they know the environment well and in that the environment will be one that the Kiseki User's Kiseki is able to make full use of.
