     Every night for the last five months, Cyan had patrolled the grounds of the Toshigawa stronghold. He could easily sketch the landscape in his mind, leaving not one single tree or stone out of place. The grounds held no secrets from him. Yet as he walked down the pathway, his home had never seemed so unfamiliar.
The Knave had penetrated their ranks, utterly destroying the sanctity that he held dear. How had they found them? He asked himself repeatedly as he continued on his lonely watch. The other strongholds had been taken before, but this one was the most-guarded, well-kept. Only the best and brightest of the Toshigawa clan had been brought here and assigned to one duty: protect the clan’s most valuable asset, Shinnandrea Toshigawa. Somehow he and everyone else in the clan had failed miserably. The Knave had managed to break through the defenses with such ease, with no detection. They had taken Kristin and left Tochie for dead. Kristin was bait; that much Cyan had been able to deduce. Shi had always had a soft spot for Kristin and the Knave were playing that angle. It had worked too. Shianndrea had disappeared in the night, taking Turra along with her. Cyan felt his stomach tightened at thought of Turra out there facing this seemingly unstoppable threat on her own. He quickly dismissed the thought from his mind. If anything, Turra’s strong than me. The thought brought a smile to his face. He’d never admit it to her face. Any plans of taking off to aid Shi and Turra were thwarted when Kim took off first. Cyan silently cursed him in the back of his mind, not for leaving the stronghold, but for leaving him. At least if he was fighting along side of them he’d know what was going on. Instead he was here, fighting off fatigue and a sense of impending doom.
Crack.
Cyan froze in his tracks.
Every warrior has a story to tell. This is Cyan's.

Weee...I was feeling a burst of creativity at work so I typed up a paragraph or so on this little fanfiction that's been brewing in my head. This is kind of like the Toshigawa version of Lion King 1 1/2 Excpet without the showy Disney Music. You know the story within the story. Something to that effect...

I've been rather fond of Cyan since his only appearance in Crucible. True he had no lines at all, but he had a cool pose. And a goatee.

There's more to come to be sure, it's just well...I am at work after all. ^_^

(Please forgive the paragraphing. I haven't figured out this HTML code yet)

Disclaimer: I don't own Cyan, or any of the other luverly characters in the Toshigawa word. That would be this guy [link]

I just went back and read this again. It fits perfectly in with Last Chances that is currently running on toshigawa.com.

Yeah that's what I was going for when I wrote it. I wanted to show the events of the story through someone else's POV. I really ought to sit down and finish that while I have free time.

Wow.
That was awesome. Our first fan fic.
The purpose of Turra having her own book was to highlight Cyan in all of his awesomeness. He is the aloof ninja with an attitude. How else would he turn the head of Turra.

Look for more of him in Turra 2.
He has a slight cameo in Turra 1 as well.
Just a panel.
Looking forward to reading the rest.

He does not talk in this one.
But in issue two he gets a chance to shine and you get qa chance to see him and Turra interact. He gets to be all cool and blow things up.

I just got Gun Angel today. I didn't see him until I read it the second time around ^_^. Where's Waldo, Toshigawa style!

I just wish I could read a little slower...these things do NOT last long around me.

I liked it. It was cool to see Turra on her own and the tone was noticably lighter than in Jetta. I got hyped when I saw Slash and Doll. I was like "Look it's the crazy B#$% again!" lol. The only thing was I wasn't expecting it to be as short as it was. It was like when I watch "The Fellowship of the Ring" for the first time. I went to the kitchen when Frodo and Sam got in that boat, and when I came back the movie was over. I was like "Dude! That's it? That sucks..." Good cliffhanger tho ^_^. The Fanart was a nice touch. I hadn't seen some of those before.

Overall? Awesome dude!

Dude this is the first one? I'm so awesome ^_^ (and modest too!)

Yes goatees always equal aloof-ness. Unfortunately it does not have the same effect on women
