Hello everyone. This is DivadX here, bringing you the first Profile Page of Roxy's Reports! Each Profile will occur in between chapters. By doing this, it will demonstrate that the Profile Pages are occurring in real time, as Yuhiro Furutani faces off new opponents along with Roxy. The reports will be mainly done by Roxy, but at times, they'll be done by Yuhiro, and eventually, Herald.
Anyway, please enjoy the first Profile Page of Roxy's Reports!
Roxy's Reports 1: Yuhiro Furutani and the Knight of Hanoi
At Café Matsuo, in the evening after Chapter 1, but before Chapter 2...
"Testing, testing..." Roxy said, holding her phone and speaking into it. "Welcome to Roxy's Reports 1! Today, I'm interviewing Yuhiro Furutani, both my adopted son and roommate on his duel against the Knight of Hanoi!"
"What are you doing, Roxy?" Yuhiro asked, raising an eyebrow. The two of them were in the living room part of the second floor, sitting down on the couch. Roxy had her laptop and phone with her.
"Well, after we accepted the job from Monty, I got this brilliant idea." Roxy explained. "We should make a list of reports of all the opponents you face. By doing this, we'll be able to document your experiences down and develop counterstrategies in case you have to face them again. After all, you can use those strategies once you duel Playmaker."
"But I haven't got the chance to see Playmaker's duel." Yuhiro pointed out. "His might be different compared to others."
Roxy pouted. "Oh, come on. Just give this a try, please?"
Yuhiro sighed. "All right."
Roxy smiled with glee. "Okay! I'll be asking you a series of questions, Yuhiro, and you gotta answer them honestly. I'll know when you're lying, by the way."
"Duly noted." Yuhiro replied. He knew that lying to Roxy would only get him in trouble. After all, as she once said, she could smell a lie a mile away.
"Yuhiro Furutani." Yuhiro answered.
"Your VRAINS ID?"
"Raguel." Yuhiro also immediately answered. She typed it down on her laptop along with his first answer.
"16 years old. Why are you asking me these questions? Do you intend to do something with my information or something?"
Roxy raised an eyebrow. "Really? I'm a hacker, but I'm not an immoral one."
"Sorry." Three years ago, Yuhiro started working as a black-market agent, with Roxy being his hacker and technological support. At first, she was reluctant, but after Yuhiro told her he wanted to help Miyu, she eventually agreed.
Roxy typed further information into her computer before asking the next question. "Okay. Do you have a job?"
"Obviously." Yuhiro rolled his eyes. "I work here at Café Matsuo."
"For free, you may add." Roxy added, as she typed that in as well. "Alright. I got the basics. Now it's time for the real questions. What deck do you use?"
"The 'Cyreath' deck." Yuhiro told her.
"Your ace monster?"
"As of right now? Cyreath Hercules." Yuhiro said, smiling as he remembered his victory against the Knight of Hanoi. "Whenever it points to monsters, they lose 500 attack points. And if he destroys a monster by battle whose attack points are different from their original, the opponent takes effect damage equal to half of the destroyed monster's original attack points."
"I remember that." Roxy said, typing Yuhiro's answer in. "But what I want to know is: How does your deck work?"
Yuhiro thought it over for a few moments. "The 'Cyreath' deck is all about pulling out Link Summons. The monsters have a range of effects, from bringing allies out, to searching out resources, etc. The spells are about either accumulating resources, gaining an advantage, or keeping the monsters alive for another turn. Finally, the traps have interesting effects that can either irritate my opponent or save me if I really need it."
"Uh, Cyreath Salvation can either protect my monsters from card effects. Or, if it's destroyed, lets me Special Summon a 'Cyreath' monster from my hand, deck or Graveyard. Cyreath Barbarian provides my new Link Summoned monster with 500 extra attack points, and..." Yuhiro smiled. He actually enjoyed this.
Unfortunately for him, Roxy caught him in the act. "You're liking these reports, aren't you?"
"Yes." Yuhiro sheepishly admitted. Damn it.
"I won't tease you anymore. For now." Her tone then changed to a serious one. "Could you tell me about the Knight of Hanoi you dueled? As well as who the Knights of Hanoi are?"
"Yeah, sure." Yuhiro put a hand to his chin as he thought about the duel. "From what I know, the Knights of Hanoi are a mysterious hacker group that emerged in LINK VRAINS. I unfortunately don't know what their goals are, but what I do know is that they'll hurt innocent people to get their way. And I can't let them do that."
"Brave of you, buster." Roxy praised him. "Now tell me all about the duel!"
"But you already-!" Roxy narrowed his eyes at him and crossed her arms. "Okay. The Knight of Hanoi used a simple strategy revolving around a Dark Machine monster known as Cracking Dragon."
"Could you be a little specific?"
"As Cracking Dragon is a Level 8 monster, the Knight of Hanoi focused on Special Summoning lower level monsters before Tribute Summoning it." Yuhiro clarified. "I must say, that Cracking Dragon was a pain in the ass."
"How come? Surely, a duelist of your caliber would have saw it coming."
"You know just as well as I do that they use different decks. After all, they're mere grunts." Yuhiro pointed out to Roxy. He then got back to the topic at hand. "Anyhow, Cracking Dragon's effect is that it lowers a summoned monster's attack points by 200 times its level, and then inflicts that damage to the duelist. Furthermore, it cannot be destroyed by battle with a monster whose level is equal or lower."
"The Knight had Spell and Trap cards supporting Cracking Dragon." Yuhiro recalled. "For instance, his DDos Attack Spell card lets him send as many copies of that card from his deck to the Graveyard, and then inflict 100 points of damage to the opponent for each copy sent to the Graveyard times the Machine monster's level. And his Crack Breaker Spell card let him destroy one spell or trap card on the field if he controlled Cracking Dragon."
"Thank you for the information, Yuhiro." She then typed a few more things before stopping. "Alright. It's done. Are you ready for the end result?"
Roxy turned the laptop so Yuhiro could look at it. After seeing what she did, he had to admit. It looked amazing.
Name: Yuhiro Furutani
VRAINS ID: Raguel
Other aliases: King of LINK VRAINS' underworld, Robin Hood of the Network, Angel of Justice (really? Angel of Justice?)
Age: 16 years old
Residence: Café Matsuo
Job: Counter Server and Cook at Café Matsuo (Yuhiro is a really good cook! Trust me on this!)
Ace Monster: Cyreath Hercules
LINK VRAINS' History: Started working as a black-market agent three years ago. He told me he wanted to do it because he not only wanted to repay me back, but also to help Miyu as well. Aww. That's adorable.
Duel Grade right now: SSS (Smokin Sexy Style!)
Notes: As Raguel, his Cyreath deck focuses on Link Summoning. The monsters have a range of effects, from bringing allies out, to searching out resources, etc. The spells are about either accumulating resources, gaining an advantage, or keeping the monsters alive for another turn. Finally, the traps have interesting effects that can either irritate the opponent or save his ass if he really need it.
Did you know the Cyreath deck is based off of characters and creatures from Greek Mythology? That's so cool!
He's also had a very good success rate on the black-market. Monty is really impressed with him. He even jokes how, if he keeps it up, he may be Angelica's equal (that would be awesome, as I heard she's a legend. Especially with the Scarclust plundering!).
Name: Unknown (there's so many of these grunts, I'm not taking individual names!).
VRAINS ID: Knights of Hanoi.
Gender: Male (and no females. WOW!).
Age: Mid 20s-30s (just an estimate).
Job: Hacking into LINK VRAINS and threatening the innocent people there.
Deck: Dark Machine monsters (but there's so many of them they could have individual decks, and I'm not putting them all down!).
Ace Monster: Cracking Dragon (and according to Yuhiro, it's a pain in the ass!).
LINK VRAINS' History: Unknown. Will have to look into it as more information becomes available.
Duel Grade right now: D (Dismal).
Notes: While the Knights of Hanoi have different decks, this one's deck used a simple strategy revolving around a Dark Machine monster known as Cracking Dragon. It's effect is that it lowers a summoned monster's attack points by 200 times its level, and then inflicts that damage to the duelist. Furthermore, it cannot be destroyed by battle with a monster whose level is equal or lower. In addition, the Knight had Spell and Trap cards to support his Cracking Dragon as well.
I gotta say, the emergence of the Knights of Hanoi has me thinking that Yuhiro may be right about his dream. Everything may change after today.
"Roxy, this is... this is..." Yuhiro couldn't finish, as he was amazed by the profiles.
"Amazing? Breath-taking?" Roxy asked.
"Yeah." Yuhiro agreed. He then saw the notes she put down in the LINK VRAINS History section for him. "Adorable? What you mean adorable?" Yuhiro's face turned red.
"And I'm keeping it forever!" Roxy mischievously said.
"Do you really have to tease me, Roxy?" Yuhiro pleaded.
"Yes, yes, and definitely yes!" Roxy answered. Yuhiro groaned as Roxy laughed at his misery.
