We know what happened in Pleasantview, but what about Angel’s Haven? How
did the A.H.R. come to be? This Interlude focusses on the founder of the A.H.R.
Kisuke Fujiwara and his early life before he came to Angel’s Haven. We will
eventually see how everyone in the A.H.R. met and how Mimi’s Army found
(And I have included another familiar face too…only because I love him. <3)
Riverblossom Hills: 30 years ago
This quiet, close-knit farming town was often called an Idyll;
everything here was peaceful and quiet. It was exactly the respite that
the over-stressed city dwellers craved and the little town started to
grow. One such family was the Fujiwaras, whom had recently
immigrated to the Sim City area from Japan.
Kisuke: Ocaa-san!! Ayumi-chan doesn’t want to risten to me…
Minako: Hai, hai…anata no besutowotsukasu*
Kisuke: Fine…one more time.
(*Yes, yes try your best.)
Ayumi Fujiwara: Age 2
She was born in Riverblossom Hills not too long after they got settled in. She
also wouldn’t have the same early education that her older brother got before
they left Japan. She would be raised in Riverblossom Hills and her adaptation
to the new culture would be far easier than her family’s. Kisuke still spoke with
his Japanese accent and had some trouble with English words, while his
parents had an even harder time adjusting. They frequently spoke in Japanese
and knew very little English. Finding work would be difficult for them.
Yohei Fujiwara: Age 32
Their father Yohei knew that finding work in the new city was crucial in
supporting his young family. He still didn’t want Minako to work because he
didn’t trust anyone else to watch the kids here yet. Eventually once Ayumi
started school there would be more time for Minako to continue her work in the
Science field. While Yohei wanted to find work in Adventure and relic hunting.
He worked as an anthropologist in their home country and was excited to see
what he could uncover about this country’s history.
Minako Fujiwara: Age 28
Her love of Science was what brought them to this country, she was among the
top 20 in her field. When an opportunity to study abroad came up she jumped
at the chance to take advantage of it. Yohei was her senpai in high school and
they have been together ever since. She wanted to get settled into her new
post as soon as possible although her husband felt that she should wait until
Ayumi started school. She reluctantly agreed and the employers here were
supportive of her decision and said that she could still take the post when she
was ready. Family comes first in Riverblossom Hills after all.
Kisuke: Oto-san…you have to speak in English here.
Yohei: Sorry, it is difficurt for me.
Kisuke: I know but you have to try…now tell me again in English what
On the night of Ayumi’s birthday, Minako called up her employer and
told him that she would be able to start work tomorrow now that
Ayumi was old enough for school, he was pleased. In the two years
they had been here, both Yohei and Minako had been taking English
classes online and were starting to understand it better. Kisuke was
also helping them by giving them quizzes on English.
Though like most kids, all Ayumi wanted was some cake. And Kisuke
wanted to cut her a piece. He still adored his baby sister.
Ayumi: I like this outfit ocaa-san, why do I have to wear a dress?
Minako: It is a pretty dress though.
Ayumi: Ocaa-san!!! I can’t play with onii-chan in a dress!!
Minako: Hai…then you can wear that but I would like to see you in the
dress at least once.
Kisuke was three years older than Ayumi and he was starting middle school at
the same time as she was beginning elementary school. While living in
Riverblossom Hills, Minako had take up a gardening hobby like many of the
neighbours had. Her hard work was soon rewarded when she received a
perfect garden club score and they presented her with the Wishing Well as a
prize along with some money. She was very proud of her garden and used
the fresh vegetables in her cooking, Minako wrote a best selling cookbook
with Asian inspired recipes as well.
While Minako was out tending the garden one night, Kisuke had heard
a rumour about a way to summon aliens at school and he wanted to
try it out…turns out that it really worked. She rushed over to see her
son being “beamed” up.
His journey through the solar system was an interesting one…his
family was out front ready to greet him in their own ways…
Minako: Well, you asked for it baby. Heehee!!
Yohei: Mina, that’s not very nice…
Kisuke: Now I regret that want for the Extraterrestrial Reparations Grant…it was NOT
Ayumi: Haha!! Dork!!
Kisuke: Oh yeah? Well I have stories that’ll scare you…
Ayumi: You wouldn’t do that to your kawaii little sister would you onii-sama?
Kisuke: Don’t tempt me…
This is only part one of Kisuke’s past, (and I haven’t played any
farther) but there will be more in the next installment of the Angel’s
Haven Interlude series. For now, let’s return to the present…
Angel’s Haven: Present Day
Word spreads far and wide when the world suffers a catastrophic
event like this, and soon people start flocking towards where the
saviour family of the Apocalypse has gone…even the ones you don’t
expect to ever hear from again.
“How did we get so unlucky to get ourselves trapped in college?”
“Beats me, though we’re really stuck here…now that we know he’s
“Yes…who would have thought he’d come this far?”
“Just be thankful you got out of Downtown limbo at all.”
“This isn’t that bad is it guys? I mean…it’s better than never aging.”
“But we are Tricous, that’s kind of our thing right?”
“Who said it had to be? We aren’t there anymore…”
“It’s a long way from Greece…and now that he’s here, we need to
“Hmm, do you really think he’s here for trouble? I mean…Fricorith
wasn’t the same as we remember him.”
Gabie: Yep, I’d say so…one more familiar face for the road. That’s
okay though, I like him. He won’t make Cain feel lonely anymore.
Gabie: Oh crap, here he comes!! *turns away quickly*
Keika: I knew it was you, Fricorith. I recognize that blond hair
Fricorith: Do I know you?
Keika: Nope, but I know you… *smiles*
Fricorith: I doubt that…I’m looking for someone.
Fricorith: Someone named Eve…Eve Angel.
Fricorith: Why does it matter to you?
Keika: Are you good or bad?
Keika: Good or bad?
Fricorith: Good, not that I need to explain my reasons to you…whoever you
Keika: Rude much? Now I don’t think I’ll tell you.
Fricorith: Right…well someone here has to know where she is. Thanks for
Keika: Where’s my Dez when I need a good sun-burny spell?*
*Read the White Legacy for details on that inside joke.
Kaze: I couldn’t help but overhear, you’re looking for Eve Angel?
Fricorith: Yes, do you know her?
Kaze: I do…but before I tell you, what do you want her for? Did Danava send
Fricorith: I don’t know anyone named Danava…but I want to offer some help
Kaze: What kind of help?
Fricorith: I heard there was a demon problem here, I know a thing or two
about fighting demons, I want to help.
Kaze: But you are a demon…vampires are demons.
Fricorith: I’m not a bad demon, there are good ones out there you know. And
besides, what’s Death Angel doing here anyway?
Kaze: How do you know what I am?
Fricorith: I’m a Tricou, I know what Death Angels are.
Kaze: I see…I’m here for a pick up actually.
Fricorith: I figured as much.
Kaze: I would say he needs some serious dance lessons…
Fricorith: You’re telling me, excuse me for a moment would you…
Kaze: I guess I have no choice but to let you go then.
One can only deny their primal instincts for so long…all things must eat.
Even in a crowded club, the cold wind of Death is still felt in the air,
some rejoice over the death while others stare in shock that such a
thing could happen in a full room of people.
Lilith: Oh man!! That’s hilarious!! He sure has a set of brass balls!!
Eric: What…there are other vampires here? No one told me that!
Morte: Man, I hate picking up vampire leftovers…Kaze is right here,
why do I have to do this?
Shinia (phone): Because Kaze is the boss, and you have a really poor
collection record Morte honey…
Morte: Gee thanks for the vote of confidence…
Kaze: She’s right you know.
Morte: Yeah, yeah boss, I’ll get right on it…
Keika: Well that answers that question…it’s time to go I think. Damn
this glow!! I should have brought my shades…
Fricorith: What did that guy have in his system? I’m wired, too wired
to do anything but burn off steam. I didn’t even find out where Eve
Man, what now?
Fricorith: Really? Did you have to do that Rosie? I thought I had bolted
that toilet down better…guess not.
Fricorith: Yeah, don’t look so innocent…
The next day…
Fricorith: You do know that I was supposed to be sleeping right?
Kisuke: Yeah, sorry. We heard there were another vampire in the town
and we as A.H.R. have a responsibility to determine if you’re a friendly
or an enemy.
Fricorith: So which faction are you part of? A.H.R. or Mimi’s Army?
Eve: I’m not part of either, I’m Eve Angel. I come along to investigate all
Fricorith: So…you’re Eve Angel? I was looking for you.
Eve: Really? Why?
Fricorith: I heard you have a demon problem.
Eve: Yeah, we do but who told you about them?
Fricorith: I just…knew. And I had to come here, I came all the way from
Greece, just on that feeling.
Eve: Wow, long way from here. Why do you want to help?
Fricorith: Let’s just say, I am very familiar with demons…and I don’t
particularly like them either.
Eve: But you are a demon, aren’t you? Vampires are demons.
Fricorith: You know a Death Angel said that exact same thing to me last night…weird. And
as I told him, I’m not an evil demon I’m one of the good ones.
Eve: Did you say…a Death Angel??! Did you happen to get his name? What did he look
Fricorith: Well, last night is kind of a haze of images and things but I think I heard the
Reaper call him Kaze or something…
Shiloh: Ms. Angel, we should get going. We’ve established his side…it’s not safe out here
Eve’s protests were overridden by both Kisuke and Shiloh and she reluctantly left the
vampire’s tower. Though Fricorith’s day time visitors were not all gone that day.
Ani-Mei: Why did you tell her about Kaze Fricorith? She was happier not knowing we were
Fricorith: How was I supposed to know she was your granddaughter, how many different
lives do you have anyway?
So now that Eve knows that at least Kaze is alive, what will that mean
for the family? And is Fricorith really on the side of good, or is he
hiding some darker motive for coming to Angel’s Haven?
I’ll let you know once I figure it out. ;)
But for now, I brought back Fricorith because I missed him and when I
realized I didn’t extract Eirene before the M&G Massacre I can’t
reunite them. I mean I can CAS breed her again once I re-download
Hex from Sam, I still have Theia as a teen saved…but maybe this is a
chance for my favourite vampire to break free from his past and do
some real good here in Angel’s Haven…or some bad…
Fricorith: She’s rude…but hot…damnit. I hate conundrums…
Oh yes, that’s the glow of triple bolts, watch out Keika…my blond
vampire likes you. :D
And as if it was any surprise, this is Angel’s Haven resident newspaper
Now it’s really the end. Shoo.
