How had Waka gotten himself into this mess? Well, it wasn’t exactly his fault this time, but his travels often got him caught in rather interesting situations. Traveling from the Celestial Plain to great Nippon and to all lands in between got a bit tiresome after a while, and Waka just needed a change! This time however, it hadn’t been a willing detour. He’d been forcibly removed from his home, just to appease this city.
He didn’t stress himself out much however. There’d be no sense in that. The strange mystic being that seemed to possess the city had told them they wouldn’t be leaving anytime soon, and honestly? The entire thing interested Waka. His job was important for sure, but he wanted to see what would happen in this city. This city that looked nothing like the only city he knew very well - Sei-An City - seemed inviting, and yet so confusing. Everything seemed much more modern and different than everything he knew.
Perhaps this was a chance to learn more about the world! He certainly couldn’t pass that opportunity up! Even if the city did seem more than a bit…hostile. Waka could handle it. After all, he was a taomaster and god’s gift to man! His trusty sword would help him out of any situation! Luckily for him, it seemed as though his powers were still intact, and he was gliding from spot to spot, taking in as much of the city as he could.
—suddenly! He spots a person in the distance, and words come to his head. Could it be? Yes! His prophet abilities had activated upon seeing this person, and he points directly at them, delivering his prophecy—
“I foresee a difficult time in this city for you! But worry not, mon ami! You will meet many in your time here!”
