DARKSTALKERS: Dawn of a New Breed
Author's Note: I've never played any of the Darkstalkers games though I have played Marvel VS Capcom. I'm intrigued with the series itself and decide to make my own fanfic about it. Please excuse me if I go a little out-of-character of the series characters themselves and my lack of complete knowledge of the series itself, though I went here to gather some information to learn more about it, but hope to try to keep them close to their personality as possible.
This story takes place after the last game or story, whichever one that was. This is my first fanfic on Darkstalkers so I hope you enjoy the story.
CHAPTER 1: The Demon's Corona
"And thus, this is how George Washington became America's first President. Now any questions?" spoke the history teacher Mr. James Todd, a tall man with gray hair except bald on the top, wearing black glasses and a suit.
The class remained silent taking notes except for a certain black-haired boy, who's ends of the strand fade out to light gray which is strange as he never dyes his hair, snoozing class away with his head laying on the palm of his right hand.
"Well then Mr. Corona do YOU have any questions? Or perhaps you like to explain to the class what I've said in the past 20 minutes?" called Mr. Todd as he walk over to the boy's desk.
The black-haired boy stirred and looked up to see an irritated history teacher.
"Very well…" stated the boy and repeated exactly what Mr. Todd said about George Washington becoming the President and the great battles he fought he.
"Hmph… very good Mr. Corona now that I know you were listening how about a lesson on not SLEEPING in class in Detention later today?" said Mr. Todd both pleased and angry with the boy.
"Alright then. I'll come," remarked the young man.
The history teacher just pushed his glasses up, showing that he's still irritated at the boy's lack of focus, and return to the back blackboard to continue the lesson.
Just then a dark green-haired boy, which look like a broom mop, with a navy blue headband in a black t-shirt with an open white button t-shirt over his black one nudged the black-haired boy's side with his elbow.
"You got to teach me how you can still listen to the teach's lesson and still snooze in class getting an A in this class, Chris o' pal of mine!" said the green-haired young man.
"Maybe in Detention… care to come along Alvin?" smirked the black-haired boy known as Chris Corona.
"Hell no man! Forgot it… how about tomorrow's Detention?" said Alvin.
"Yours? Nah, I'm good," said Chris chuckling to himself.
"Always the sarcastic wiseass as usually," said Alvin frowning.
"Oh my, what ever do you mean?" showing Alvin a fake smile.
Later on at the cafeteria.
"Landed another Detention in History class again, Chris? You should learn by now that sleeping in class as no-no buddy," said a young girl with long wavy black-hair coupled with a brown vest and dark purple t-shirt pulling out of hamburger.
"Well it is the start of our third year at high school, right. The teacher needs to relax a little. I still study and get good grades, right Tiff?" said Chris shrugging a little to look innocence before proceeding to eat his lunch, a ham & cheese sandwich.
"True, but you should still not sleep in class. The teacher will think that you aren't serious with school, but you still won't take heed of my advice?" smiled Tiff.
"You know me well, as usually. However the teacher's lecture is too long and boring and the students are going to lose interest. Besides shouldn't the school the lesson fun and have activities in them? I mean when people play games that when they get into it and learn more. If the school takes a direction like that in class, making it fun and less boring, I'm more students would study more," said Chris.
"If only, the real world is always about business, business, and business. Acting childish will get you know where, but my gramps always mention the good old days when live wasn't as bad and more fun," whimpered Alvin, "What happen to those days?"
"People got more ignorant and stupid, thinking life is better and the slightest sign of danger or thing to cause the children to go back bad or hurt they will put their foot down on it. If they only realize that no ones perfect and must make mistakes to learn from them and grow to become better people," said Chris shaking his head.
"Quite the great philosopher you are Chris," hummed Tiff.
"You finally noticed? What took you so long?" chuckled Chris before sipping his drink however that earned him a nice flick on the forehead.
"Keep it up wise guy, you'll get a whole lot of girls kicking your rear end," said Tiff in a playful and menacing tone and look on her face.
"Ah… what a way to go," Chris mused to himself though his friends still heard him.
"Sheesh, always having fun even in a conversation aren't you, but that's what I like about you Chris," said Alvin drinking his soda.
"Well then I better get ready for my man-date with the teacher," said Chris getting up.
Though that comment cause Alvin to choke on his drink and hammer his chest in response with Tiff cracking up next to Alvin's side.
"C-Chris! Don't make stupid jokes like that when I'm DRINKING!" Alvin said angrily to Chris.
"But seeing that reaction from that little joke was worth it," said Chris rubbing his nose with his index finger before leaving the cafeteria.
"Damn, that guy sometimes goes a little too far with those jokes of his," said Alvin slurping down his soda and watching to see if Chris will come back and pull another trick like that again.
"But he still draws the line to stop him. He just loves teasing people he likes, such as you and me," said Tiff placing her hand on Alvin's shoulder.
After finishing detention with Mr. James Todd, Chris finally leaves Stonedge High School to return back home. As Chris got out of school he stretched out his arms and legs and gave a small yawn before brushing off the dust on his red open zipper t-shirt with the face of a demon on the front of it that was on top of his black t-shirt.
"Already this late?" said Chris as he checks his watch which says 8:04pm as he exits out through the front gates.
"Didn't think that detention would be that long. Teach really needs to lighten up a bit," said Chris and he continues to walk down the sidewalk in the cold and dark night.
As Chris continues walking down the sidewalk and looks at the skies and admires them. The stars look so free and alive right now, without a single care in the whole world. Chris couldn't help but smile to himself and admire their beauty until the street lights block his view from time to time.
However before Chris could admire the stars even more he felt a sudden change in the atmosphere. The air was filled with bloodlust and fear, though Chris wasn't afraid but was alert to the danger around him. The feeling is abnormal, nothing humanely possible about it.
"Well this is interesting, someone came out to play with me?" smirked Chris getting into stance.
Despite never fighting anyone before Chris has study varies Martial Arts such as Tae Kwon Do to defend himself against attackers that would do him or anyone else harm.
Just then coming out of the brushes was the strangest thing that Chris has even saw. And there were three of them to boot as the strange beings appeared from behind the bushes.
It had the body of a humanoid dinosaur except its body is a red slime and see-through with the skull of a mutant lizard of some sort with the back of the skull giving off blue flames. Their eye sockets were empty except two little yellow dots in the center giving off a menacing look on their skull faces.
"You know, you guys could get sued for stealing the Ghost Rider's hair style," said Chris smiling as he watches the three slime lizards coming slowly towards him.
"What, no witty comeback? Guess you're no fun at all," said Chris and dropped his stance and continue walking toward his house, ignoring the creatures.
However as soon as Chris turned his back the slime lizard in the middle of the group quickly lunged at him, but as soon as the lizard tried to claw Chris with its rotten-smelling greenish-black claws disappeared.
"Blind spot," said Chris.
Just then Chris kick under the lizard's skull head and launched it into the air. Chris then pursuits the creature by kicking off from the ground into the air himself and does a spin dash in the air to gain some speed before finally kicking the slime lizard back into the ground at full force as it shatter the ground below making a small crater.
"However, if I leave you guys alone then you could attack someone else and I wouldn't want that on my conscience and besides… I don't like bullies!" said Chris, shouting that last part, and getting into fighting stance.
The other two creatures roared an inhuman scream and charged at Chris with him using his speed to charge right at them and jump over them as both of them collide with one other and drop to their knees.
Chris simply looks back and scratches his head.
"Sheesh, I actually feel bad fighting you guys. I mean, I dislike killing and all but I'm not sure what to do with ya if I leave you alone knocked out," said Chris with concern in his eyes and he proceeds over to the knocked out slime lizards.
However the word "behind" ranged in the back of his head and quickly turned around to see the slime lizard he attack before headbutt him in the stomach knocking on his back and sliding across the ground.
Chris slowly gets up with a small line of blood dripping from his mouth and grabs his stomach in pain with his right hand and looks at his attacker with barely any damages on it in the slightest.
"This could be a problem," Chris chuckled to himself as the other two slime lizards got up from their 'fake' sleep and gathered in a triangle formation.
"Getting more clever by the minute, the fake knockouts were a nice touch," said Chris getting back to stance realizing now that these lizards were playing with him earlier.
This is going to take longer than I thought… mused Chris.
The creatures give off their trademark roar and dash in a circle around Chris to watch his movements and blocking his way of escape.
"Straight, back, left, and right all blocked. However…" Chris mused as he jumps into the air and grabs onto the streetlight.
"I can still go up!" shouted Chris looking down at his angry predators.
Lucky for me I'm the fastest person on my track team and I'm an excellent jumper and martial artist, but I can't go on forever. I need to finish this…
The creatures proceed to tackling the streetlight, hoping to knock Chris down.
"OK, I'm taking back the 'clever' comment. You guys really are simple-minded," said Chris as he jumps off and knees on of the on the head.
Then the second creatures swings its tail at Chris, but he simply ducks and rolls away and jumps back on his feet, while the third creature charges at him only to find a kick to the head waiting for it when it got there.
The slime lizard that was kneed in the head slowly gets back up and shakes it head before disappearing in the bushes.
The other two lizards look at one and jumps away to side.
"Huh?" was Chris's only though before a black sphere shot from the bushes at blinding speed knocking him in the stomach again and smack into a fence.
Chris looks around him to see no cars in the driveway.
What a day for the neighbors to go out of the house for the night! Chris mused to himself before falling unconscious.
The three lizards walk in on their prey slowly with their mouths slight open with drool coming from their mouths.
But just then a black aura surrounds Chris and the boy slowly gets up and opens his eyes revealing that the white part of his eye turned pitch black and his sapphire blue eyes turned crimson red and gaining a more demonic look. And the air started to fill up with an odd feeling of fear and danger.
The way Chris was standing with his back hunched forward a bit and his arms dandling back and forth giving his a half-death or Zombie-like appearance with his face looking straight.
In the shadows of the night his face is block out that you cannot see his nose or mouth and only the side of his face is visible with his piercing red eyes looking at the creatures.
The slime lizards take a few steps back before Chris lifts his hand up and a glowing black light starts enveloping his arm and then sprints forwards and claws the air itself to releases threes waves of darkness in a werewolf-like claw movements eating away the slime lizards until their body completely disappeared.
The boy breathes heavily and looks at his hand muttering "What is this power?" before felling unconscious again.
Just then a strange woman with green-hair and what appears to be bat wings on the side of her head that was watching the battle from a nearby rooftop approaches the sleeping young man.
She kneels down next to him brushing the side of her hand against his face and giggles to herself.
"What an interesting soul you have, boy."
"Boy, wake up! You'll be late for school if you do!" yelled a brown-haired man with short spiky hair and a short ponytail enter his son's room.
"Just 24… yawn… more hours please…," said the boy yawning in his half-wake state.
"Christopher Darkas Corona, you wake up this instant and get ready for school! The ladies love man who a very diligent about work," said Mr. Corona place his hand over his heart giving him a poetic appearance however he received a pillow to the face instead of a praise.
"Jeez dad! Do you have to comment everyday in the morning about me getting a girl!" said Chris finally awake now and getting out of bed.
"Yes, yes, but a whole new world opens up to you if you had a sexy beautiful young girl clinging to your arm and saying 'I love you' over and over again," said Mr. Corona with the him speaking 'I love you' in a very bad imitation of a girl's voice.
"Dad…" mutter Chris with a look of irritation on his face.
"Then you show you love by touching her breast and kissing her," said Mr. Corona demonstrating by groping his own son's chest and leaning his face close but on to side to side.
However Chris uppercut his father right on the tip of his chin.
"WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU!? DON'T DO THAT AGAIN, PLEASE YOU OLD FART!" shouting Chris both embarrassed and annoyed by his father's usually awkward behavior.
"Then I suggest you get a girlfriend, now hop to it!" said Mr. Corona all pride-like.
You're the reason why I never bring a girl home… mused Chris.
"Later old man!" said Chris after quickly changing to his clothes from yesterday (he has 4 of the same pair of clothes to keep him changing his appearance) and leaving the room.
However before heading to school Chris looked up to his room and mused to himself.
Was it all a dream?
After finally arriving at school and getting into class, Alvin nudges Chris in the side again to get his attention.
"Something you need Alvin?" said Chris, still sleepy a bit.
"Didn't you hear? We're getting a transfer student and she's coming to this class as of today!" said Alvin all geeing.
"First, how do you know that? Second, why tell me? And third, I'm asking her out," said Chris.
"Well you se… HEY! Don't joke in morning like that… and I wanted to ask her out first," said Alvin getting into his stubborn mode.
"Couldn't resist the tease. Besides I don't know her, and…" Christ started, but before he could finish the teacher came in with a young girl following behind him.
"Attention class, we are welcoming a new student to our class and I would appreciate it if you could welcome her with open arms. Now miss, please state your name to the class," said Mr. Caravan.
The young girl walk forward in front of the class with all boys and girls looking at her with envy. Chris took a look at her too and noticed that she had green-hair and purple eyes and wore a sailor dress like in Japan schools.
"Hello everyone, my name is Morrigan Aensland, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance," she said.
"Now that's settled, you may take a seat next to Mr. Corona over there," said Mr. Caravan pointing at Chris.
The girl gracefully walk to her seat with everyone not taking their eyes off her. And to Chris's right side, his friend Alvin slightly drooling in her wake.
As the girl took her seat she looked over to Chris and waved at him.
"I hope the two of ours can be friends… Chris Corona," said Morrigan with her eyes flaring up when saying the boy's name.
Something off here… mused Chris … looks like an interesting year this time.
