AFFILIATIONSPICK YOUR SIDE DON'T BE LEFT OUT
During the conflict between the mundanes and true pairs, two separate groups began to emerge, and they each possessed radically different styles of dealing with the conflict. Both wanted to establish a niche for the true pairs; however, their desires and personality types conflicted terribly. When the war ended,Wraith and Rapture shifted into the shadows, making room for the underworld and allowing Septimal Moon to slip into the everyday life of island society. The few remaining members of Seven Moons have infiltrated many of the higher offices and are steadily working on returning to their former glory; however, they are contested by the rebellion groups.--------------------------------------------RAPTURE: REBIRTH REBEL GROUPWE PUT OUR MASK ON AND LET THE SHOW BEGINS
Such definition upon the name matches perfectly with the group's ideal, seeking nothing but ecstasy in life without paying heed to the law or government officials and controlling their own lives. They utilize all the resources and knowledge they gain in order to expand their methodology, so that no one could be controlled by anyone, directing such a message to the authorities out there.
ℜ ESTABLISHMENT: Twenty-three years ago along with Wraith
-Became a separate entity approximately one year later
-Reformed after two years (that is twenty years ago, a few months after their arrival on Selene Isle)
ℜ CURRENTLY LED BY: The Six Regalia
ℜ MEMBERS: Rave (Unlimited)
ℜ MEMBER SIGNATURE: A mask (both Rave and Regalia) and a bell (Regalia only)
-One's mask is unlikely to be similar to another as it is their personal signature in the group. Each mask represents the wearer's personality, and rumored to distinguish their division within the group.
-The bell produces a different chime compared to normal bells, which only those inside Rapture are familiar with. It is up to the Regalia how to keep it- whether to wear, carry, or tie it to something- but it is a must for the bell to be with him or her at all times.rap·ture- A feeling of intense pleasure or joy.
Rapture is also known as Rebirth, as the "former" Rapture--the one that existed alongside Wraith--has been disbanded. Rapture cooperated with Wraith as the two shared the same ideology of rebellion roughly twenty-three years ago. While some prefer violence in settling objectives, there were a few who refused to employ such a brutal way of gaining recognition from the world, and so they, who opposed the methods used by the leader of Wraith in handling matters, began to turn their backs secretly. The situation pushed the founder to one and only one solution; disbandment and so, the opposition gladly left the group. The scattered members of Rapture indulged themselves in different fields of the war effort, resulting in minimal progress by the time of the new Rapture hierarchy. After a few months, they gathered once more, having the same thought of forming the new Rapture. Old and useless ideas were revised and replaced, which built the foundation for the Rapture today. While things were going smoothly, some of the Regalia decided to step back from the top thrones and brought in their chosen successors, who have shown the capabilities necessary to bring Rapture to its fullest glory- to become an even greater group than Wraith.
Rave, the term used to refer to a member of Rapture, lead an ordinary life in their newly gained homeland, and the same applies to the Regalia, who are the elite members or group leaders. They could be students, policeman, shop keepers, or even the grandma who lives alone next door. Generally, Rapture members are no different from civilians, but their true colors begin to shine through with the setting of the sun. Like carnivores, the members become active at night, where they mostly spend their time in a club called Nightshade--owned by one of the leaders of Rapture, or in a so-called state of emergency, they would be seen wondering around on the streets. At night, whether in the club or out on the street, they proudly display their emblem of pride as part of Rapture, which is a mask resembling a nocturnal creature.
A Rave's mask is unlikely to be similar to another as it is their personal signature in the group. A rumor discusses the masks contribution to the distribution of members within a division. Winged-creature masked Rave take passive roles as they are known as the eyes of the group- observing and conveying messages. Carnivore masked Rave are aggressive and vicious- act in accordance to and for the group ideals. The rest and infamous category of animals represented by the Rave's masks are "to be protected" as they are considered to be defenseless and weak. Even without wings to fly or claws to shred the preys, a Rave is still a Rave, and he or she should not be underestimated. There are twelve Regalia; six pair of a fighter and a sacrifice each with similar true name. To distinguishing a Regalia is easy, with or without mask on, as a Regalia is bound to wear or carry bells that produce different chimes compared to the normal bells, which a Rave is familiar with.--------------------------------------------WRAITH: AGGRESSIVE REBEL GROUPWHEN I THOUGHT THAT I FOUGHT THIS WAR ALONE...
As a very aggressive organization, the public tends to view them in fear, not wanting to interact with member. However, they rarely recognize the members due to Wraith's preference for the shadows. People have noticed a few trends with known Wraith members.

- A defining feature of Wraith would be their dog tags, flimsy trinkets with their constellation and true name etched into the silver metal; moreover, they tend to prefer looser clothing (i.e. hoodies and cargo pants), utilizing the extra pockets to hide their poisons and daggers.Wraith—upon hearing the name, the ghastly image of a hazy, ghost-like figure intruded upon the conscious minds of society. The rebellion group believed in assassin themed activities (i.e. spying, poisons, etc.). the idea of barging forward with no plan irked the members of Wraith, forcing them into loud and explosive arguments with the leaders of Rapture—whose style contrasted greatly with their own. The tension between the groups kept the rebellion from advancing for many months, halting conflict with the mundanes for a brief time, and eventually, the original leader of Wraith demanded a disbandment, aiming to separate the two groups and to continue their campaign for recognition. Rapture heeded his call, leading to the creation of the two separate groups.
Without Rapture, Wraith settled into a kamikaze style warfare, devastating their enemies through surprise suicidal attacks. They enjoyed the adrenaline rush and managed to undermine many of the mundane governments’ strategies; however, their numbers declined rapidly, forcing them to display a more cautious side. In the last months of the war, Wraith’s death toll reached zero, having employed strategies that called for treachery and illusions. Those last months characterized the Wraith seen on Selene Isle—a cautious wariness surrounding each member and a readiness to defend their comrades against all odds. Their structure called for an almost familial type bond and atmosphere… yet tragedy awaited them.
Two years into their inhabitation of Selene Isle, their leader developed a deathly illness, triggered by an unknown poison and exasperated by his inability to remain still. The poison slowly turned his body against him, yet he continued to trudge on, selecting his successor and establishing a rough framework for the next generation to build upon. He wanted to leave behind a legacy… but his life ended before the true work could begin. His rough sketch of the framework morphed into a constantly changing system with positions based upon constellations; however, they answered to no true leader, alternating control every five years. Within Wraith, everyone is viewed upon as an equal… and after experiencing the loss of their beloved leader and the war, everyone is considered a family member.
Overall, Wraith tends to be a very affable group, opening their doors to anyone and everyone. They fear betrayal and work hard to include everyone, keeping secrets behind locked doors and acting cheerfully even in the face of death. They seem content enough in their life though many have aspirations to destroy the few survivors of the Seven Moons massacre, hating that traces of their previous existence still remained.--------------------------------------------SEPTIMAL MOON: GLOBAL POWERAND I'M NOT TRYING TO TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE YOUR LIFE
Is more commonly known as Seven Moons. Members and their position change constantly due to members shifting upwards with the death of a previous elite member. Information about Seven Moons and former operations is considered classified and never spoken about. There will only be two sets of Zero pairs, meaning four Zeros in total.
§ ESTABLISHMENT: Unknown - assumed to have existed years before this whole thing began
- Few months and twenty-three years ago before the war
- Myths have them operating up to forty-seven years ago
§ CURRENTLY LED BY: The Seven Seats
§ MEMBERS: 4 Zeros, 3 pair units
§ MEMBER SIGNATURE: n/aDuring the night, the halls of Seven Moons Academy bled, a scarlet hue creeping and stretching across every available surface. Before that night, Seven Moons considered themselves the rulers of the true pairs. They controlled the education system, contacting the mundane governments, and detaining criminal true pairs. They never allowed anyone to seize even momentary control from their group of elite members, relishing the opportunity to further personal goals and the ability to manipulate their students. People viewed the academy as a safe haven, which caused the Seven Moons members to silently cheer and to gloat due to their accomplishments. They were the prominent name within the true pair circles, meaning that people respected and targeted them.
After the massacre, Seven Moons fell into partial disgrace, defeated by the sheer mass of the rebellion group. They could not overcome their foe, resulting in a retreat; however, they suffered terrible blows. In recent years, they have begun to recover, regaining power within the government and slowly gaining controlling power in Fati Academy. Despite their shame, the mundane government turned to them for peace talks, unwilling to work with the hotheaded rebellion members. With the eyes of the world upon them, they managed to secure control of Selene Isle, granting the true pair a paradise. Their efforts, however, remained unacknowledged and forgotten. People looked upon them in pity, murmuring about their sacrifices and their mistakes.
With the whispers following them, Seven Moons disappeared into the shadows, resurfacing occasionally to offer suggestions to the government or to the academy. They, however, have become restless and want to return to the global stage. In order to achieve their goal, they work tirelessly at regaining their former position in true pair society.
