Ryuha's factions and NPCsThe Lucky Seven
Location: "Fort Slash-Edge" in the swamp, but they appear wherever they feel they're needed.
Composition: Each member is different
Fin (Hawkmon/Aquilamon/Garudamon/Crossmon, current leader)
Elder/Eldritch (Shamamon/Sepikmon, wiseman/intelligence specialist)
Yukina (Piyomon/Kiwimon/???/???, medical/healing specialist)
Solid (Wormmon/Coatlmon/Santiramon, stealth specialist)
Slash (Kotemon/???/???/???, Co-founder/offense specialist
Edge (Guilmon/???/???/???, Co-founder/technical specialist
Satoshi (Patamon/Angemon/Shakkoumon, defense specialist)
Allies: AJ, Kate, Lexi, Ryuha
Biography: Once upon a time, they were rather well known as fighters on the side of light, but recent times have been hard on them. With only four of their original seven members left, it can safely be said that their luck has run out. Despite this, the remaining members keep their spirits high, and seek to solve the mysteries before them, and fight the good fight.
You never know where they'll turn up next, or what they'll be trying to do, but beings who are good at their core never have reason to fear them. They may someday seek to replace their fallen members, but only someone of great promise would be considered for such a placement.Kusanagi Village
Location: The Grassy Plains
Composition: Feudal Japanese themed Digimon (Bushi Agumon, Kabukimon, Igamon, etc)
Major Characters: Nefvarin (Shawujingmon, Daimyo); Sohi (Reppamon, samurai); Hien (Musyamon, samurai); Kamina (Igamon, Nefvarin's 'daughter')
Allies: Gin Tsuki and Luna, humans in general (Nefvarin teaches that humans are an intricate part of the Digital World's destiny and must be respected, if not outright revered)
Enemies: Few now that Yamato no Orochimon is dead. Nefvarin counts Emul as his enemy, but fears for his daughter's life and would never dare act against him.The Domain of the Deep
Location: the ocean/beach
Composition: aquatic digimon, mostly virus attribute
Major characters: Demon of the Deep (Leviamon, unquestioned ruler)
Allies: Kamon Taikawa
Enemies: many, but no tamers yet
Biography: A band of rowdy demons, criminals and villians that roam the ocean, and its shores, making trouble. Leviamon is their lord, and they follow him loyally out of mix of fear and gratefulness for the more or less free reign he gives them. The group remains mostly mysterious though, and if they have any larger goals, those are unknown to outsiders.Suzuran
Allies: Hazer (whether or not he feels the same way is irrelevant.)
Enemies: None (although she'll gladly invent one, to further her romantic fantasies.)
Neutral: none (and its going to stay that way. Either Suzu likes you, or hates you.)
Biography: The best word to describe Suzu is, without a doubt, crazy. She would prefer the term 'hopelessly romantic,' but the lengths she'll go to for her little romantic fantasies are doubtlessly crazy. The first (and so far only known) example of this is when she met Hazer and became instantly infatuated with him. She wanted him to be a hero that saved her from a stock villian, but lacking for such a villian, she had him battle and defeat her employer. With no job to do, and no hero on hand, Suzu is presently wandering the border between the grassy plains and the forest. Watch out around her, she'll latch onto anyone, she doesn't even care about her hero's gender when she gets really desperate.Beachbum
Location: Shopping Center, may occasionally be seen at the beach
Allies: Ryuha Nara's partner Hitami
Biography: Beachbum used to live on the beach, where he pursued his true love, surfing. He was quite succesful at that pursuit, and even managed to support himself on the prize money. Things changed though, and after taking a rather nasty injury that crippled his left-front leg, he had to quit the sport.
He now operates a fruit stand in the city, and despite his airheaded nature, he has become quite a success at this too. Although one could argue that he gets a lot of business from his old fans, rather than through his virtues as a businessmon alone.Emul
Form: Metamormon (if you can count that as a static form)
Location: Seems to live in the graveyard, but he rarely stays still
Allies: AJ (it would seem), Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi (...he wishes)
Enemies: Ryuha Nara, Kotaro, anyone who stands between him and treasure or a good question/answer
Neutral: Kyra Evans, Gin Tsuki
Biography: Who is Emul? A good question, but one that lacks a straightforward answer.
What are his goals? Mostly to find and answer the greatest question ever asked, or to ask a question that will spur the greatest answer ever given. Less esoterically, he covets rare and valuable treasures, ranging from the legendary sword Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi, to the various spirits scattered across the digital world.
What's his MO? He uses the shape-shifting powers of Metamormon to their fullest effect, appearing in the shape of the digimon best suited to the task at hand. He particularly enjoys fighting a digimon by using their own form against them, and usually appears before tamers wearing the form of one of their partners to gain their sympathy.
