It is the year 2013, 2 years ago the Holy Grail shown evidence of attempting to appear in the world, within a week several magus had already gained command seals, given to them by the grail. However, little is known about the actual grail other than the legend, and the religion built around it. It is a powerful grail that fills with power of divine nature, resulting from the battling of servants, and magus. The grail demands the mana and death of servants, however once it is filled it will over flow releasing its power into the world, by then only one magus will be left standing in the war, and he will claim the power of the grail, the power which is said to grant any wish you're heart desires.
However it seems this holy grail war wouldn't be like one small ones held in the past, among a select of mages... no so has magic grown, with it too has the grail. It now demands more power than ever, untold number of mages have been pulled into the grail's grip and become summoners of the servants, a lot of these people among the two power houses in the world.
The Sakura house of Asia, and the William's house of Europe. These two have relentlessly been trying to obtain the grail for themselves. With the mage's numbers only growing over the past two years, its evident that the grail's waking will be greater than any other waking ever in history. It will change the world as we know it forever.
(Basic plot, allowing the support. For more info on the factions, check below.)
The Red Roses headed by the Sakura Family, there extremely powerful and are known to harbor some of the greatest martial arts magus in the world. They are known for there honor, and duty, a lot of there members actually resemble that of samurai, from the shogun. age with there actions. Respected by a lot by there people they brought China, Taiwan, Korea, and Japan under one banner as one nation and fixed the problems with the countries. They've existed for a very long time.
Her name is Hyakka Sakura.
There leader is a beautiful young girl who recently became head of the family 3 years ago, a year before the grail started showing signs. She is said to be the greatest magus in potential in the family yet, however she's mastered the Red Rose Sakura family special magic. The way of the ink, the name sounds odd to most however,It is Sakura family take on Wind magic. It is said to give the users the ability to walk on air, and color the very wind black like ink, however few have seen this in practiced and no one knows the full extent of her abilities.
While she is young, she has been a great leader and supporter to her people, they look to her more than ever in the times of the grail wars, However while still young her tactics at times can be immature, (not her personality its her abilities and lack of experience) But with all the harden Generals serving at her finger tips, this is more then made up for.
Work in progress.
Recently popping up, Masters and servants equally have some how sub come to some sort of corruption, that has been turning there personalty into the opposite of what they are, other times it drives them insane, but the results are always the same, whoever is corrupted this way becomes the nature of evil, and seek to wipe out other life, they constantly are moving about but when they encounter people they tend to bring death, or even worse. Driving people insane or even devouring them. While the church believes this to be demonic corruption. The two families believe this to be another faction generally. However while it is a mystery, it is true that whatever is causing this dramatic change is extremely dangerous and will cause the grail wars to spire out of control.
