    Hello, everyone.

    I decided longtime ago to create a thread of my original character, Petal Lang. I once created this thread because someone wants to see her in a peril, mainly beating. Also someone can be used her as a ryona material such as fiction. The arts are provided by my talented friend.
    Her DA: mikitaka on deviantART
    Her Pixiv: piw on [pixiv]

    I will post arts of her fight/ryona too.
    Any questions and suggestions are welcome.

    Her setting is a modern day, where many factions strife to dominate the world via business and military methods. Weapons, martial arts and even magic are developed for that.

    It is in near future. There is a fight and many use force to take what they want. Some has large ambition. Country, government and army strengthen themself, and so gangs and terrorists.

    Many decided to use mercenary, because mercenary often needs only money to operate, while one group's man and other resources are safe. Mercenary usually conceals their client's information, so they are a choice for attacking when one wants to hide his identity. While this is important for terrorist vs. government battle, it's also a good thing for gang vs. gang or government vs. government.

    It's a time for soldier and mercenary. Many affiliations created their own group of combatants to protect them, make them their mercenary unit to earn money or for bigger goal...

    Bai Bi (白壁), White Wall and Petals

    "A rose isn't beautiful with just a single petal."


    Found by Bai family in China, this group started as a company of fashionista business. After succeed in the area, they branched to food, housing, furniture and medicine. Now Bai Bi is one of the top company in East. Beneath their surface, Bai Bi deals in weapon business, however. That is a reason of their rapid grow.

    Bai Bi's current CEO, Bai Yong, thinks that if he possesses an absolute power, Bai Bi will be able to bring order to this world of fighting. While Bai Bi covered many business of basic items in life, they started making cloned soldiers that are known as Petals. These armed women are one of the staple forces that help Bai Yong achieves his ambition. But what is behind this ambition?

    While Bai Bi already has some armed units under command to protect them from attack, Petals are their best combatants. Skilled, smart, versatile and beautiful, Petals quickly became Bai Bi's main selling point in mercenary work. Even in their surface business, Petals fill in some positions like fashion model or receptionist.

    Petals Sketch

    These all female members of Petals are an orphans that Bai MeiHua, Yong's daughter, took under her wings after the great conflict that killed their family. At first, her father disagreed because he didn't want to spent money on taking care them while he was going to arm Bai Bi. However, his old and mysterious friend named Shen Long, with yet unknown reason, told him that he will train "fine soldiers" for Bai Bi. Years past and his words proven true.

    [​IMG]
    Bai MeiHua, daughter of Bai Bi's current CEO and head of Petal Project.

    With high physical abilities, unarmed skills, swordplay and gunfire, Petals can take various missions, both head-on and stealth. Petals are a force to reckon with in close combat, using quick strikes to takedown an opponent. They prefer light weight equipments and rely on speed and "Chi Armor" for protection.
    "Chi Armor"; an invisible layer of force that cover their skins. This chi layer can lessen an impact from an opponent’s blow or deflect low caliber bullet. So Petals are more endurance than they seem without any armors to slow down their movement.

    However, chi armor has a weakness. The layer harden skins but not bones or internal organs. So a submission holds or assault at vital points/nerve centers can still hurts Petals. Continuous attack can weaken the layer for a second and heavy blow or high caliber bullet also hurt them or break their bones, if the force is hard enough. And chi armor consumes chi overtime, Petals can’t activate the armor if one ran out chi. With their standard amount of Chi, the armor can stay active around 3 minutes at best. It also offers little to no protection against non-impact harms like poison gas or electricity.

    Since Chi Armor is activated with will, knocking Petal unconscious will completely shut the armor down. One who studies in the way of chi will know how to deal with Chi Armor. Many chi users know that chi is delivered through body via breathing. Thus, making Petal breath harder with choke hold or attack a spot like lung, belly or solar plexus can weaken her armor in no time. Disrupt chi with an attacking at lower dantian, a spot that generate chi located in lower belly, is a common knowledge among chi users as well. Of course, Chi Armor is less effective in an environment like underwater.

    "It's time for action!"

    Name: Lang (朗)
    Age: 21
    Height/Weight: 165cm./51kg.
    3 Sizes: B86 W55 H86 (cm.)

    Bio:
    One of the "Petal" and the most prominent one. She can be counted as both protagonist and zako, up to the story.
    Like others, Lang was trained to be Petal since young age. While she's confident, brave and speaking in polite manners like other Petals. Lang developed a deep care for her sisters, and be more outgoing. Thus, Lang can get along well with many Petals.

    In all Petal's arts like their version of Changquan (Long Fist) Kung Fu style, swordsmanship, driving, gunfire, computer and seduction, Lang most excels in the first three. Shenlong also spots Lang as a prodigy of melee combat, though the talent is not fully bloomed yet.

    Because of that, Lang's overall skills are better than many of Petal members. And she's good at both solo or paired mission.

    Like her sisters, her name was made from single Chinese letter.

    Lang is also known as "Gamer Petal". Because she likes to play a games when she has spared free time, occasionally with her sisters. Many of her games are actions, shooters or fighters. And many of them are a famous series like....

    Spirit Calibur (Fighter series. A characters duel each other with weapon and rip the opponent's cloths), Sekken (Fighter series. Play as a fighters who join "Stone Fist Tournament"), Hell or Heaven (Fighter series. Famous for its male characters' muscular bodies), Kunoichi Gaiden (Action. Branch series of Hell or Heaven), Resident Devil (3rd Person Shooter. A series that started out as a full action shooter, but turned into Survival Horror in later games), Call of Responsibility 3548: Future Warfare (Shooter Series. Famous for releasing new game every week.), Blades of Kriegmar (RPG. An adventure of weird all-female party) and etc.

    "May I help you?"

    Name: Hui (惠)
    Age: 21
    Height/Weight: 165cm./50kg.
    3 Sizes: B88 W55 H85 (cm.)

    Bio:
    One of the "Petal" and another prominent one. While Petals are trained to have a polite manners for being Bai Bi's main face of elite soldiers, Hui is more, if not most, polite and sweet of the sisters. Hui usually smiles most of the time and helps enlighten the Petals. She is also skilled in lady-like activities like sewing, cleaning or cooking.

    The very first one to befriended Lang after the lost their family. The two Petals grow a close relationship ever since. They often sparring together to improved their effective in combat, mission or bed skills.

    Compared to other Petals, Hui is a skilled sharpshooter.

    These are just rough ones. I am trying to cook up a story or something.

    Question:
    Any new profile for Petals 2016?
    Any principal line story or just crossover to beat any fighting girls they meet?
    Petals are quite tough as minions, any significant weakenss?

    Suggestion:
    Less swords and guns but reasonable story.
    Hope to see more fight against other female minions or heroines.
    The petals are Chinese girls in classic cheongsam dress. The enemy minions can be Caucasian girls in leotard combat skirt, with modern agent equipment like earset and arm belt.

    Thanks. We are more busy these days though so the arts will be harder to make...

    Thank you, Ran. I'm somewhat a forgetful guy so sometime I can't do what I should be able to. This can spice Petal up nicely.

    Question:
    Any new profile for Petals 2016?

    -Nothing much beside their origin. They were cloned soldiers in ryonani but I decided to changed them into human now.

    Any principal line story or just crossover to beat any fighting girls they meet?
    -Petals were first created with the latter idea in mind. Crossing a heroine, either from games, movies, fictions or an original characters from other members, then fight her. Win or lose isn't as important as ryona.
    I never has a main story focus because I don't have much time to think about it. But if I can make, it will be Lang's story of becoming rogue Petal because of reasons.


    Petals are quite tough as minions, any significant weakenss?

    -They are strong elite minions like in games such ad Tenchu, Dynamite Deka (Die Hard Arcade), Ninja Gaiden and God Hand. Zako that packed with dangerous moves which can be painful if you slip them a chance.
    Their weakness is beside Chi Armor, they possess no special ability/attribute beyond human. On average, they are on Tekken's Xiaoyu level. And they will need numbers/plans/arms to have a chance against strong heroines like Chun Li or Ms.Marvel.

    Suggestion:
    Less swords and guns but reasonable story.

    -I can see it. And Chi Armor has some of that purpose in mind. It can encourage hand-to-hand and make Petals fight longer, that mean more beating and ryona to them or the heroine. Also its weakness is open to belly punching, submission holds, choking.

    Hope to see more fight against other female minions or heroines.

    -They were already some scenes about that and I will post laters :3

    The petals are Chinese girls in classic cheongsam dress. The enemy minions can be Caucasian girls in leotard combat skirt, with modern agent equipment like earset and arm belt.

    -Sound good.

    You know if you and your friend who does the art work got together with say Idoro or others who have their own band of zako/minions you could get a zako/minion war/tournament going.

    Speaking of such things a good pen&paper RPG game for Zako games is Palladium Books's Ninjas & Superspies.

    Palladium Books Store Ninjas & Superspies™ RPG

    Also their Heros/Villains unlimited is good for a super hero like Zako game

    Palladium Books Store Heroes Unlimited™ RPG, 2nd Edition

    I have both a hard copy and a pdf of those two games, the Palladium Books game system is well thought out and easy to understand and best of all most of their games can be crossed with one another, meaning characters from one game can be used in another game with little to no fuss, be sure to check out their other games as well.

    Layout

    Evening, Lili is sitting in front of the dinner desk in her mansion. Suddenly the glass wall to garden broke and 4 Petals jump in.

    HP
    Petal A 10 Lili 10
    Petal B 10
    Petal C 10
    Petal D 10

    Petal A: Miss Rochefort, we are here to take you with us.
    Lili: Who do you think you are? How can I obey lowling like you?
    Petal A: We know your talents, but -
    Lili: Sheer in numbers? Do you think a graceful and slender miss like me will have the two steaks all by myself?

    At this moment, Asuka enters the dinning room. Petals are all surprised.

    HP
    Petal A 10 Lili 10
    Petal B 10 Asuka 10
    Petal C 10
    Petal D 10

    Asuka: Your mansion is really giant! My way to toilet is exploring a maze!
    Lili: Now my bodyguard is here, you won't make this easy.
    Asuka: Hey! Who the hell is your bodyguard?
    Lili: You are hijacking me for South Sea oil rig contract, I guess. Which competitor sent you here?
    Petal A: Forgive us. It is our duty.
    Asuka: Are you even listening - Oh, my dinner!

    Glass fractures scattering on food on the desk, clearly not eatable.

    Asuka: My dinner! I have been hungry whole day!

    Extremely angry Auska rolls over into Petals and begins to attack. Have Petals dodged immediately, Petal B still got a heavy wheel spin kick on her breasts. Leaving D to keep an eye on Lili, Petals surround Asuka to deal with this threat first. Although outraged and skilled in defense, Asuka still got her arms held by B and C, and A gave a fatal punch on her exposed belly.

    HP
    Petal A 10 Lili 10
    Petal B 10-5=5 Asuka 10-4=6
    Petal C 10
    Petal D 10

    Auska(Before being punched): What are you waiting? They come to capture you, not me!
    Lili: It seems that my bodyguard is defeated. You are worth my opponents.

    Petal D charged towards Lili but she ignores D and her bott heel pierces into the back of B, who is grasping Asuka's arm. With Lil's kick on the back, Petal B is OKed. Asuka got another punch on the belly before escaping.

    Petal B: So fast...

    HP
    Petal A 10 Lili 10-1=9
    Petal C 10 Asuka 6-3=3
    Petal D 10

    Lili: Now is the time for team performance!
    Asuka: I think it is time.

    Stepping on falling Petal B, Lili jumps on the back of incoming Petal C and unleashes a chain kick on her, finally pushes her to Asuka. Asuka also keeps kicking C until she being pushed back Lili. However, when Lili was going to finish C, Asuka stumbles her, allowing dying C falling on her back. Lili is almost stepped on the face by A. She manages to stand up after receiving some light attacks.

    Lili: Miss Kazama. What have you done?
    Asuka: I-am-not-your-body-guard!

    HP
    Petal A 10 Lili 9-2=7
    Petal C 10-9=1 Asuka 3
    Petal D 10

    Then the situation becomes stalemate. Losing number advantage, experienced A and D fight more carefully. Wounded and hungry Asuka lacks energy to offend actively but still can protects herself well. Therefore, Petals mainly focus on Lili, she is gradually contained. However, Asuka's tentative kick hit but be held by C.

    Asuka: Woo!
    Petal C: I am taking you with me!

    Petal D's slap makes Asuka's nose bleed and body fly onto the dinning desk, destroying it. Blood also fleeing out of Petal C's mouth. The team kicking clearly hurts her organs.

    Asuka: It hurts! My belly...so empty...
    Lili: My shining time has come.

    HP
    Petal A 10-2=8 Lili 7-2=5
    Petal C 1-1=0 Asuka: 3-3=0
    Petal D 10-4=6

    D is finally defeated due to Lili's strong attack. Lili, already weakened, still keep a pround attitude.

    Petal D: I failed...
    Lili: Last one try to hold out a little longer.
    Petal A: Leave that word to you!

    HP
    Petal A 8-2=6 Lili 5-2=3
    Petal D 6-6=0

    Petal A drives Lili back with a series of combo, then uses her legs to clamp Lili's head. But before she could choke Lili, Lili graspes A's feet and accelerate rotating.

    Lili: Look at my beautiful dance!

    Lili keeps rotating and finally throws A into the wall. A slides down the wall, sitting on the floor, knocked out completely.

    HP
    Petal A 6-6=0 Lili 3-1=2

    Lili wins!

    Petal D: We lost, do whatever you want on us.
    Lili: Sebastian. Call a taxi to take the ladies where they want to go.
    Petal A: You...let us leave, alive?
    Asuka: I think you have been taught a lesson: hijacking others and wasting food are all wrong! Go home and be good girls.
    Lili: What an exciting fight! Looking forward to seeing you again.
    Asuka: After I finish my meal next time.

    Explanation:
    Petals are sent to hijack Lili to make her family compromise. Having known Lili's history of beating hijackers up and being a Tekken player, 4 Petals are deployed to ensure success of the mission. Unexpected, Lili invited her rival Asuka Kazama for dinner since she messed Asuka's lunch box. Therefore it turns into a group fight.

    In previous stories, petals and enemies seldom really fight in groups. Since NNin mentioned Tekken, opponent this time is Lili (Emilie De Rochefort) and Asuka Kazama. I planned to write more about how the group work was interrupted but lack energy.
    Meanwhile, petals seldom failed as well, so this time it could be somehow different.
    Although I am slightly interested in "fight to death" but neither Tekken nor your artist friend likes this so that is how the story looks like.

    The exact action scene can be referred in Tekken game videos. Petals' detailed action and words depend on NNin's decision.
    Asuka undertook formal martial arts training. She is good at keep enemy out and counter enemy's attack, while she likes to use violent to solve any problems.
    Lily develops fighting skills by herself. She is actually quite powerful and can beat down an enemy quickly, while she likes to keep a graceful and pride gesture during the fighting.
    The contrast is more or less interesting. Heroines of my own zako story is inspired by them.

    Good post, ran. Something like that can happen.

    Speaking of which, Tekken often has zako in its "action game" mode. Their moves are good for zako and samba dancer are my fav. Tekken zako :D

    Here is the first works about idea of Petal vs. Game Heroine inspired by a thread Final Fight 2 | Undertow
    With little change to Petal's outfit.
    (Original version: Petal vs. Maki (Final Fight 2) )

    Petal is a skilled elite zako that can be a formidable foe to Maki if hired by Mad Gear. Still, it's not easy to take down the heroine. But Maki was weaken with some Mad Gear's henchmen before. So Petal, with a helping hand, got her chance.

    The well placed kick deals quite high damage to Maki's health bar. Can Maki stand and fight after this...?

    Great work! Good to know the thugs are still in the fight to turn the tide against Maki. It's kinda like the boss fights in the game where the boss alone is already intimidating enough, but you have to deal with all the annoying thugs.

    It's very hot in Thailand, so let the Petals chill you in a day like this...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And get back to our usual world of conflict.
    Time for an enemies of Petals from last forum.

    Bunny Mercenary


    [​IMG]

    Found in Vegas to protect their casinos and clubs from greedy terrorists. These women were trained in unarmed fighting and improvised weapons such as chair, bottle or card and basic firearms. After some years of improvement, Bunny Mercenary is known by their exotic kicking skill that can hurt even a sturdy guy or catch a speedy foe. With proper preparation, they can take out Petal.

    [​IMG]
    Facing it with unarmed, Lang was cornered by Bunny Mercenary's deadly kicking skill, and got a blue heel slammed in her gut. Unknown to the bunny, not only she temporary stunned the Chinese girl, she also disrupted Lang's chi.

    Now, their main base locates in Las Vegas, though it maybe just a rumor. If not on a mission, many of them work in casinos and clubs as a bunny girl, bouncer or guard.

    Bunny Mercenary has her story here by Mystral Kiss.
    Petal vs. Bunny Mercenary

    Nurse Mercenary

    [​IMG]

    A mercenary of one affiliation.

    Their boss is unknown, but the group seem to often attack a medical lab or hospital that is researching in new medicine or biology. There is a rumor about they want to create a virus that only them know how to cure and use it to dominate the world. But they may just be hired to steal medical knowledge, as it can help in improving soldier.

    On mission, the nurse mercenary prefers more personal, silent and stealth tactic. Well trained with effective routine, nurse mercenary's physical abilities are beyond average human. Combined with a high skill in CQC, a syringe filled with poison and a sharp scalpel, these nurses are deadly in close combat.

    They also possess vast knowledge in human body so all of them can do medic work to help their comrade. In combat, they use the knowledge to attack the enemy. They can perform a thrusting punch that will go deep to a liver, a palm strike that can shake the target's brain, a kick that will shatter a spine or an armlock that can break big man's arm.

    It should be noted that Chi Armor covers Petal's skin, not her internal organ. So it can be said that the nurse mercenary's attack will be able to harm Petal even before her Chi Armor is down...

    Nurse Mercenary has her story here, again by Mystral Kiss. With some pics.
    Petal vs. Nurse Mercenary

    And here are the Nurse Mercenary's new pics and minor changed ones, I suggest you read the story above first to avoid spoiler ;3
    [​IMG]
    They can be quite attraction.

    [​IMG]
    Though they are equal in unarmed melee combat, Petal Lang holds advantage against the Nurse Mercenary. Until the costumed assassin starts attacking her "softer inside"...

    Thank you, Kargan. We need something to distract is from heat...

    TQA and I decided to make a contest too.
    Petals Fiction Contest! Have your Fanfics be illustrated officially by one of NNin's artist!

    Maybe this can interest people and bring Petals new direction :3
    I also added more Petals' info to the first post for use.

    It's still hot here.
    But hot days don't stop Petals from attacking some heroine. This time it's Kokoro from Dead or Alive.

    Kokoro got attacked by some Chinese Girls while she is having a nice day at the beach. She fended them off but they are quite skilled.
    She deal with all of them until only the last duo left. Will Kokoro succeed in taking down all of the Chinese Girls?

    Still no update because my lack of free time, along with the artist. This may affect Petal contest too. If that happens, I deeply apologize.

    By the way, Guruo, artist known for his zako arts interested in Petal and decided to did one. She looks great, doesn't she?

    And my friend is hyping for KoF14 and Mai coming in DoA5. Thus he wanted to do Mai Shiranui art and agreed in fight scene with Petals. XD

    Since Mai fights with some mafia or evil organization in game, anime or pachinko, we can expect her meeting with some hired Petals.

    The Petal fiction contest is over. The winner will be announced soon so please wait.
    However, the prize maybe slow to deliver, I apologize for it.

    Anyway, it is a time to introduce Petal's another move....

    ------------

    Using Chi to harden one's skin is a basic of Chi Combatants. It does not only provide protection, like Petal's Chi Armor, but also prevent the user from hurting herself while attacking, allowing more risky move. However, while this is a good way of defense, using Chi for more offense is not rare among them.

    Petal's Chi Armor lets her fight with light weight and protect her from weapons like blade or firearm that are common among modern combat. It's the technique's main purpose. Still, there is a time when Petal needs sudden attack force.

    Chi Palm

    A technique that allow Petal to "push" her Chi forward, creating a wave of Chi that varies in power, upto the Chi charged into it. If high amount of Chi used, this move can send a force of heavy weight boxer's blow or above which enough to shake even the tough heroine.

    The move is hard to use, however. It is a melee attack that has a much shorter range than Petal's standard pistol, while having roughly the same attack power. It also does not suited in crossfire battle since it drains Chi supply from her, shorten time limit of Chi Armor, but Petal should rely on her gun and Chi Armor in that kind of situation. And against an enemy with weapon or dangerous attack, it is better to have Chi Armor to defense against it.

    Of course, like Chi Armor, Chi Palm needs steady breathing and Chi flow to use. If the Petal's breathing is corrupted, this move can't be performed effectively. And a motion of "pushing" is also needed so restrained Petal can't use it as well.

    Still, it can be Petal's trump card against strong enemy. The heavy palm strike from the little body can turn the table for her. It's a timing that make this move tricky to use, and only few Petals can use it well in real fight.

    The move can be delivered both from one or two hands. Two hands allow more Chi pushed at once. Beside from Chi Palm, it has different names dubbed by diffetent Petals, though all are the same. It is said that someone like Lang gave her fancy one.

    By the way, can you tell who is the heroine receiving Chi Palm above? :3
