- Quest Name: Some Animals Cannot Be Tamed
Quest Category: Episode
Player Participants: Lu Shang(+1), Myla Rentallia (0)
Planned Location(s): Notice, North Blue
Planned Time Range: January 5, 1829
Summary: After being smuggled out of the East Blue by the Luciano crime family Lu Shang is instructed to lay low. Eventually he winds up at an underground slave market on Notice where, after one humiliation too many at the hands of the Lucianos, he decides he'd rather be hunted than caged. Violence ensues and a new crew begins to form.
“What do we need to go to slave auction for? We've already got this pussy cat that Grandpa gave us?”
“Because Grandpa said we can only use him for errands. I want something I can play rough with.”
It was a cold, and slightly rainy night on the island of Notice and a group of four men, all dressed in fine suits, walked along one of the many well paved roads that snaked through the island's central city. The two identical looking men talking were a pair of skinny, athletic looking youth with slicked back hair, diamond earrings and an all around general swagger about them. Their names were Frank and Tony Luciano, collectively known as the Luciano twins.
Behind them, slouched over and holding a large umbrella over the twins was the pussy cat in question. A once great prize fighter formerly known as “The Great” Lu Shang, his life had recently taken a turn for the worse after the world government found out that friends were fixing his fights. Long story short, he had been smuggled, literally, out of the East Blue by those same friends and was now forced to lay low and work as a glorified servant for them while they figured out what do about all the heat he now had on him. Not to mention the various debts that he still owed them.
Lu Shang knew how dangerous his friends and the friends of his friends could be. He would never admit it, but he was afraid of what they might do him were he to disobey their orders. So, despite being much larger than the twins, and possessing the powers of a devil fruit, he remained silent as the twins talked trash about him as if he wasn't even there. Such was his life now.
The fourth man was a mystery. He was only slightly shorter than Lu Shang but had many more scars and long, wild looking hair. On his side was a sword, a nodachi it was called, longer than most horses and wider than the shoulder width of most normal men. Despite it being dark out, with even the moon and stars covered by clouds, the mysterious man wore thick sun glasses. Lu Shang didn't even know his name, only that he was working as a body guard for the Luciano twins tonight and that he had a body count larger than his weapon.
The streets of Notice were alive with nightlife even in spite of the weather. Lively nightclubs, fine restaurants and various boutique shops lined the streets and attracted crowds of the young and wealthy. In better days Lu Shang would have been the life of such a party. Men used to shower him with gifts and beautiful women would practically beg him to use their body for his pleasure. Now all it did was depress him as he was reminded him of how far he had fallen.
Not that it mattered now he thought.
The men weren't out to party...yet. The twins had decided it was too early for that. Right now their destination was a seemingly abandoned warehouse that was far off the main road of the city. The four men walked into the building which appeared to be completely empty, devoid of anything except for a large steel hatch in the middle of the ground. The twins casually walked to the hatch and one of them bent down and rapped his knuckles against it.
“What you want!?” came a loud voice from the other side.
“We're here to visit our friends.” answered the twin.
“They ain't here!”
“Are you sure? Our wallets are very heavy.”
“Why didn't you say so!? Come on in!”
There was the heavy clanking sound of a large metal lock being undone and the hatch swung open. The body guard entered first, followed by the twins who were followed by Lu Shang. The hatch led to a ladder which led to a tunnel which led to the slave market which was quite literally underground.
Outside, just off the coast of Notice, a great storm was picking up steam. Its wind howled like wolves and its thunder boomed like drums heralding its arrival. It was still a ways away but it would not be long until it reached the island.
