the good

Higanbana is a charming, charismatic little demon. Everyone loves being around her because she is always friendly and ready to enjoy herself. Helping others is nothing out of the ordinary for her and she is very romantic with her love interests. Higanbana is a demon who isn't afraid to put her hands into something. However, that doesn't mean that she will dip into affairs that aren't any of her concern. Not one for the "politics" that come with some of those in her social circles, Higanbana enjoys what her new occupation has given her. Seeing as how she has more freedom and playtime in both realms now that Kaira is out of her hair, Higanbana is not above indulging in her whims whenever she feels the pull to do so. Again, she is a demon who knows what she wants and will do just about anything to claim it for herself. She's a coveter and admits this wholeheartedly.

The Dancing Higanbana is absolutely one of the most sociable demons. Usually the life of any party, she easily allows herself to fall into a state of comfort and radiates positive energies where ever she goes. Most often find it a huge favor and privilege to be able to have her at one of their social events and she is more than happy to indulge in these facts. Higanbana plays the part of a calm, even tempered demon that all can enjoy being around. She can easily fit into any conversation and seems the perfect person to lean on in a time of need.

the bad

However, she has her moments when her skills as an actress slips up and the mask will fall - much to the terror of the one on the receiving end. At various times, someone can stumble upon her in the foulest of moods and find themselves at the receiving end of a tongue lashing from Hell. It is rare that this happens but if it does, she often takes great pleasure and relishes it because once she gets to chewing someone out, Higanbana cannot stop herself until she is happily content at having ripped them a new one. As the years have passed, these outbursts become less and less frequent until they only happen once every few months or even longer in between.

Sadistic and most often cruel, Higanbana prefers to attack those with apparent moral or innocent standings in order to expose their most flawed and base hidden reservations from a mental and emotional standpoint versus a physical one. There is nothing that she enjoys more than stripping away at a human’s resolve in order to quietly manipulate their actions into ones that she directed. Playing puppeteer to their own self-destruction and cruelty is considered one of her most accomplished feats and delicious high. It is why, to this day, she is not allowed to have a human host due to the fact that she keeps causing them to take their own lives.

the heartache

It is also known by those who hang out with her (and others who bother to do a little digging) that Higanbana is a bit of a romantic, adores broken things, and absolutely loves to build up and ruin people, places, and things. It is her sick and twisted indulgences as her title of The Harbinger. As such, she takes the greatest of pleasures in using any means necessary to build a creature up only to tear them down and have them begging not to be abandoned by her. Higanbana is aware of this fact, and so is the rest of her inner circle (which is few and far between), which is why they do their best to remain dependent upon her and the needs that she is able to provide for them.

Beautiful, silver-tongued, and possessing an overall magnetic aura, her list of lovers may be short but her lust (as well as the arousal from others) is forever insatiable. This is constantly used to her advantage around impressionable males and females alike - her one flaw being her vanity. Constantly grooming and maintaining a dignified upkeep, Higanbana finds herself to be the picture of Amaterasu with whom none equal and her spite is secretly centered on others who seem to draw any and all attention away from herself.

the truth

Higanbana has nothing to lose in being cruel and dementedly malicious towards anyone. She is a stone cold, manipulative and abusive bitch when all the bravado is stripped away. Her sadistic side knows no end and extends from physical abuse to emotional torment. She feels no remorse or a pull at her conscience over hurting people to get what she wants, no matter who they are. Nothing makes her happier than watching others suffer. Higanbana is very skilled in lying her way out of a conviction and her skills as an actress can turn whatever happens into herself being the victim if she so desires (or if it's just for kicks). Even if she attacks another, she will convince all that she was attacked first and all forms of retaliation was self-defense.

In a nutshell, Higanbana is a selfish, manipulative, fickle and conniving little shit that goes above and beyond her duties in order to ignite discord and upheaval. Though she cares for no one but herself, Higanbana can push you to believe that you are the center of her universe (or anyone else’s) before ripping you apart piece by piece and laughing as you struggle through the turmoil. She truly desires to watch the world burn – as long as she was the one to throw the match.

Because that's what's happens when you take something truly good in the world, and twist them to become accustomed to the darkness.

b a c k g r o u n d - c h e c k

Once upon a time, many many many years ago, a girl was born that was so absolutely beautiful in her natural state of innocence that she was named "Miyuki, the Silence of Deep Snow." Miyuki was an absolute gem among others and had a smile that could cease the tears of a crying babe. Lovely in her steps to the gentle swing of her arms and even the bell-like tones of her laughter, Miyuki was a free spirited creature who enjoyed wandering among the clouds and had no real need or want to see the rumored Demon Realm. Demonkind was full of so many horrible things and Miyuki, in her innocence, wanted to continue to surround herself with beauty and the warmth of the light of her world.

She had no wants. No needs. No desires. Miyuki was perfection in its most absolute form in beauty, grace and light.

Demons despised her. But so did other humans.

So absolutely jealous of the pure ray of light that Miyuki exuded, a powerful she-demon (Kaira) would not stop her hostile actions toward both humankind and demonkind. Kaira tormented Miyuki's village, demanding that the girl be given to her as penance for their transgression of ever giving birth to the girl in their world. Miyuki's father relented in order to prevent any future chaos from spreading in the dreaded demon's wake. A sacrifice had to be made and Miyuki was that sacrifice. While her father had done his best to explain to his daughter just what was going to transpire upon going to Kaira, so pure in her devotion to her Father that she did not question the reason behind her dismissal from the village. This was only going to be a short trip. She would be able to come back and be with her friends and family. As soon as Kaira got everything she wanted from Miyuki, she would return. Sweet, blissful ignorance.

Before entering the Demon Realm, she was given the name "Higanbana" by her father, which translated to "Spider Lilies", the flower associated with death and given to those who passed on to the next world on their graves. This only fueled Kaira's envy and bitterness, claiming that since she was a flower, she would have thorns and would need to have them plucked. A flower would not survive in the Demon Realm, Kaira would make sure of that. The only truly beautiful thing that would be able to permeate from Higanbana's person would be the beautiful sound of her screams as Kaira tore her down from head to toe. There would be nothing left of the glorious light that seemed to radiate from around her.

Kaira wasted no time in tearing Higanbana apart. Spurned on by her hatred of the girl, she made short work of her beauty - killing the mortal and transforming Higanbana into a horrid, grotesque lesser demon who possessed far too many limbs for her person and was beyond ugly. Her face and skin and eyes yielded darkness at every turn and her form was so perfectly revolting that none could bear to look at her. If that wasn't enough to satisfy Kaira's own deeply seeded jealousy, she made it a point to bring shame and disgrace upon Higanbana at every chance she could get. Treating her as little less than a servant, she would force Higanbana to do the most menial of tasks and she was the object of lust for any and all demons who wished to partake in her flesh.

Violation followed by shame and self loathing were all the emotions that Higanbana could feel. The days of torment bled into months and those months bled into years. Little by little, her soul was being chipped away and Higanbana was starting to forget the person she used to be. She longed for a release from her misery - begging any and all demons who would wish to feed on her to just eat her completely. Devour her, body and soul. But beacause of their fear of having Kaira's wrath raining down upon them, none would dare attempt to take more than a few bits of flesh here and there - allowing her form to recover and grow back only to have the cycle repeating again.

Something snapped inside of Higanbana one day. She had decided enough was enough. The part of her that had longed for a permanent form of disappearance had been denied her and so she only had one option left. She could only escape this nightmarish hell that the Demon Realm had so successfully provided if she got off her ass and started fighting back. So fight back she did. When a demon decided it wanted to bite her, she would bite back harder. When they tore off a piece of her flesh, Higanbana tore off their arm. When they threatened her with the promise of endless pain and suffering, Higanbana actually delivered.

Over time, though for how long she couldn't be sure, Higanbana had slowly climbed up in ranks. From a mere lesser demon to a Harbinger, Higanbana was able to obtain powers that allowed her to finally shape and change her demon form as she so chose. While nowhere close to the beautiful perfection that was her former self, she didn't care so much anymore. Because now she had learned to weave the art of hallucination - a skill she had inherited from the former Harbinger before being sent off to play as one of the new terrors of the Human Realm.

It was around this same time that Higanbana had been fortunate enough to encounter a demon by the name of Verrier. While she did not know it at the time, he was one of the demons responsible for bringing her from the Human world to the Demon Realm and for getting her adjusted to life down in the depths of the raging inferno and darkness. All demons were not always former humans. In fact, most of them were spawns from other demons - their own personal creations. Verrier and Abbadon were both vying for the next higher rank among their demonic peers and, with nothing better to really do, Higanbana watched with amusement at their little competition.

Kaira was terrifying on her own, but nothing could have prepared Higanbana for the depth of both Verrier and Abbadon's cruelty. Whatever task Kaira put them up to, no matter how horrific, they performed without question. From famine to plague to natural disaster to wars, Verrier and Abbadon competed head to head with one another, until finally, Kaira named Verrier the victor.

Not long after this, Kaira had given Verrier orders to become a demon attachment to a human host. Horrified at the prospect of remaining in the Demon Realm alone without Verrier by her side, Higanbana pleaded with her master to allow her to go the realm of humans as well to become a demon companion. While he had not been too keen on the idea, Verrier dropped his own subtle hint that he wanted Higanbana to be one of the demons in his charge. Kaira allowed this and so with Higanbana in tow, both Verrier and she traveled to the world of mortals and immortals alike to stir up mess where ever they were allowed to while keeping each other and their counterparts in check. Charged with the guardianship of a human, Higanbana's nature truly began to reveal itself for the sick and twisted demon that she had become.

The veil between the Human world and demon world, however, had shattered. Now both could roam freely between the worlds and time marched on. And with each passing moment, Higanbana became more and more cruel and grew fickle with time. Her Bad Samaritan attitude was nothing to joke at, seeing as how every human host she'd been attached to had somehow managed to committ suicide. The powers that be had had enough of all of her hosts dying, so until further notice, Higanbana wasn't allowed to take on another human host lest they die in her charge.

That was fine. She had grown bored with killing her own humans. But killing the humans of other demons? Well, now that was a new game all by itself, now wasn't it?



Demon Information

I can't wait to see your face screw up in anguish
  
Against the wrapping breath of eternal darkness
We can only struggle in it's icy grip
Without withering, we continue our beauty
Let's dance! For thousands of moons
As if to roll our eyes that have shut
Who will be the last one to laugh as they fall?
Twilight Over Love - Higanbana no Saku Yoru Ni

"Warned for a moment, injured for a lifetime. I am that moment."

Higanbana takes on many different forms, though her true form is that of a white-haired demon with burning red eyes and demonic horns that come out of the side of her head. She also has horrifying fangs that, when she gets ready to feed on actual physical flesh, elongate even further. But even when she isn't feeding, her teeth still poke out of the side of her lips. It's quite unbecoming so she chooses to cover up her face with a mask usually when in this state. Her skin is even more pale, almost as pale as the light of the very moon itself - darker in tone only in comparison to her hair.


"Are you saying you're going to oppose me? The Dancing Higanbana?!"

She is a rather skilled demon, and not just with her own abilities. Having lived for a long time and traveled across all of the Demon Realm and the Human Realm, she has participated in various events in history. Because of this, Higanbana is skilled with a wide range of weaponry - everything from basic staffs to heavy artillery like assault rifles and machine guns. Though, personally, nothing feels more intimate than a blade to her so her favored weapons of choice will always be swords.

"Since you had your tongue and organs ripped out,
you can't even satisfy me with a reply..."
