DESCRIPTION

The Lotus Girls are, by all means and methods, an honourable group of highly trained individuals, functioning effectively based on various divisions and old-fashioned monastic discipline akin to any eastern monastery's standards. They are rightfully respected for their perseverance and feared by dishonest men for their tendency to aim for the groin.

The Monastic Sisterhood of Lotus Fist originate from an alternate world and time-line. Their strong foundation in camaraderie, mutual respect, discipline and a strong, family-like environment make them a close-knit and loving community; While their controversial use of the distraction of beauty as a weapon, and their tendency to retaliate with debilitating, often damaging and/or permanently disabling attacks to a man's groin has earned them a fair bit of fear and dislike from those who do not know how to treat a lady. Grandmaster Anni "Shatterfist" Redriner is well-known across multiple worlds as a champion for justice, and the eight-petal flower with the Yin-Yang symbol in the middle has become a hallmark of trust for several agencies, among them PRIMUS itself.


HISTORY

NOTICE: All this information is out of character knowledge up to the point where the reader's character finds out in role play or contacts us, seeking to discuss a way to find out. SPOILER ALERT. Feel free to read if you wish but this is here for reference, and it is not commonly known by the population of the setting. Few details of the distant past will be said to strangers, do mind!

The Old Order

In the distant past, to the far east of the continent Kymlun, a society of oriental value thrived in relative peace and prosperity. Its seclusive nature and geographical distance from most other forms of civilisation has left it without the influence of ever-spreading fashion and merchandise. Found well ripe to conquer by leading figures of the western lands, an invasion came so quickly and with such technological advance, that a great portion of the land has been overtaken and turned into a tumbling province of poverty-market and violent oppression. The taxes became heavy, and snake-tongued merchants took quickly to learning just enough of the local language to claim what there was left to plunder. Not much though. Borne out of such an era of oppression, like the legendary flower out of the dirt and the murk of the swamp, yet still pure - came the Ladies Lotus, a former band of Geishas - entertainers and teachers to the people, but they were nothing like what they were made shortly after the arrival of the western oppression. The humiliation of the house of the ladies of lore being turned into a common bawdy house where soldiers would demand to be served or else, was too much for the headmistress and she took her own life one morning.

Mizuki's Reign

Ruthless and beautiful, the good sister Mizuki took the reins with an iron hand. She would demand of the Ladies Lotus to dance, to entertain like they did before - but much unlike before of course. Clothes came off, revealing to conceal again, the elegant motions of a woman's body turned into an alluring flower's beckoning sway. That of a flytrap. Men were soon willingly given what they asked for, if they paid the price. And a price to pay it was if they tried by force!
Mizuki enforced physical training hours upon hours a day. Their natural affinity for dance and entertainment took a darker turn and the fit bodies of dancers were all made into weapons. On one hand they had to be subtle, not to be found out - not even for the victim to know, not even to see it coming. On the other hand they had to be swift, devastating and do as much damage as they can. Their art thus became the use of small needles, hairpins, and their own bare hands and feet for self-defence. Strike both high and low. One strike would always aim to damage or destroy the testicles, the other one for the throat or eyes. They had only one chance to strike against trained soldiers, there was no room for error. And strike they did, some men falling dead, all of them crumbling in pain from the low blow and a good few of them only left with one more chance to make the same mistake, one testicle lost to a devastating blow. And the reason why they had no chance to defend against such a blow? The distraction of a beautiful woman's body being revealed shamelessly right before - or during - the strike, like the flower blooming and revealing its secrets of beauty and poison.
One day the duke himself came around, to see how five of his best men were left crippled in most humiliating ways by the Ladies Lotus. He ordered the women to defend themselves and despite all their feigned innocence - this man was not one to be fooled by such theatrical acts. The men were eager to return the favour of crippling the young girls responsible of their permanent loss. The attack was swift and the men seeking retribution were given an even swifter final rest. The duke applauded the Ladies and offered them a contract. "Do as you are told and you will be respected and rich."
Mizuki liked that idea.

Fall of the Old Order

Services rendered, pleasure and pain delivered in exceeding amounts, the Ladies Lotus would carry out their tasks at the same efficency they would practice their arts of peace and beauty years before. Only this time they would not be hired to entertain with music, dance, or poetry during a dinner, but to be perhaps present for the dinner and the night after, but only for the lady herself to leave the bedroom alive. A man is of course most vulnerable without his clothes on especially if he does not expect the sweet harlot to slit his throat.
Paranoia took root as more and more political figureheads would place an order with the Ladies Lotus for one or another rival to be done away with, none feeling safe anymore. But of course the needs of a man were to be fulfilled, now what-ever shall we do? - they asked.
That is until one day, the duke himself heard from a reliable source that his rival entered the house of the Ladies Lotus and words were traded about the next visit to his lordship's estate. The cold calculating man would set a very elaborate trap. His daughter long wished to meet the women she knew to do away with men so easily. To learn from them. The father would of course oblige, let us send my dearest girl to learn as she wishes, he would declare.
And when the daughter of the duke as well as many dead bodies of young women and even younger girls -even children- were maimed as an investigation troop sent into the house of the Ladies Lotus had found, the massacre had begun. The bodies were retrieved and it mattered not how they demanded a proper investigation on how those young ladies died. The Ladies Lotus were not prepared for the onslaught coming in their sleep, all but one young student slain that night.

Exile Period

File:CO-Lotus Mai.jpg
Mai as the Sisterhood remembers her. May she rest in peace.

Mailin was a mere seventeen years old and taken in from the streets by Mizuki. Legend has it Mailin took the life of a threatening armed bandit using only a basket and the nearby stone wall. Enough to say that growing up under conditions where your life is at danger almost constantly, you tend to become exceedingly good at survival - or a corpse. Mailin thus became just that, a survivor, as opposed to the rest of the Ladies Lotus who were although trained, but too used to the luxury of their easy life as bedside assailants.
And as such she survived, hearing the noise of the slayers wearing armour and heavy weapons, and she hid herself between the roof and the ceiling tiles. Waiting patiently for hours, she would be gone before night's end.

Mary's Corruption

She fled for dear life, hiding her tattooes that would remind of the Sisterhood and finding herself a set of presentable western clothes. She would pose as Mary Tran, a travelling dancer and courtesan. It was only natural she would continue to do what she did best, though as for the killing part, she would definitely avoid it as much as she could in a world such as hers.

Nightmares took root, never to relent. Night after night she would sit up in bed, sweating and panting, and it would not ease up, not in the next few years. She was confronted by a mighty figure of a winged woman in her sleep, beckoning her to join her and when she took a step, she would be overrun by the armed men from that night.
On her way home one dawn, the figure appeared before her in the distance. She ran in the opposite direction, right into the woman's arms who somehow appeared behind her. She would cry and be comforted by hands clawed and chained. "There, there, child. Sinerra will not let you be hurt again."

Mianiel's Birth

For many nights she had received lectures from the demonic woman, slowly but surely going insane under the demonic corruption. The paranoia of being pursued, increasing. The hatred towards men she'd serve, increasing. She'd began slaying her customers one by one, and needing to flee to a new city every week.
That is when she met the man called Toranelduil Hanodel. An elven monk with a presence so soothing that she suddenly felt at ease, for the first time in her life. Hanodel walked down the same street she was fleeing a failed assassination attempt on a pirate lord, and she ran right into him. The wandering monk would soothe her and she would slowly but surely forget about the demon queen's lessons. A daughter was born whom they named Mianiel and they were aiming to live a happy life, Hanodel learning everything about Mary's past and accepting her for who she was. They were happy, that is until Sinerra showed up. Mary fled with the three years old Mianiel in her arms, and Hanodel gave his life for his fleeing family.

Anni's Lessons

Mary was yet again on the run, now with a child to care for, and a plan of her own. She reached yet another big city where she found herself the elite of the elite in entertainment, working her way to the top and becoming the 'madame' of a rich man's house of ladies. In charge, she would prepare herself and a handful of girls to become the New Ladies Lotus, but she failed: the soft and untrained western women were nowhere near as skilled as those raised by the Old Order's standards.
Mianiel, however, was more than up to the task. Ruthless, cruel, merciless, she had no qualms doing as her mother ordered her to, however as time passed, as Mary's sanity seemed to ebb away, so did she treat her own daughter more like a soldier and less like her child. Mianiel was growing weary of the life they were living, but she also loved her mother unconditionally and she had little to no idea where and how she would live without her by her side.
That is when a young girl was dragged in from the streets. Her crimson hair was unkempt and dirty, never seen a comb. Her keen green eyes were piercing with defiance. Defiance for which she was whipped on a daily basis, but it only further seethed her fire - a fire which appealed to Mary greatly. Soon Anni would respond to whiplash with a kick that severed the man's left testicle and a strike which nearly caused his windpipe to collapse. For thirteen months was Anni lectured in the art of the Ladies Lotus, and soon every enforcer and even the owner feared the teenage girl's wrath. Her skill increased tenfold and so did Mianiel's jealousy at her new 'sister' - forgotten as daughter in her mother's zeal at having found a brand new little Lady Lotus.
And then came the wizard. The enforcers fell beneath his gaze, the ladies cowered in his presence. And before Mary or Mianiel arrived to the scene, he took the girl - and the girl took with her the book containing the secrets of the Sisterhood by accident.

The New Lotus

NOTE: Events of this period may be recalled in part or whole by characters who were present between 2001 and 2014 during NWN's Age of Shadows (2001-2003), Kymlun - Ancestral Legacy (2003-2005), Kymlun - Rivals and Disciples (2005), Masters of Fate (2006-2008) and Legacy of Kymlun (2008+) storylines.

'As this period in the sisterhood's story has been a day-to-day role play experience, the stories and events related are too vast to list in great detail. Instead, we'll focus on keystones and plot hooks.'

Anni recreated the sisterhood with an all new purpose and design, though the path to success has not been a quick, nor an easy one. Through hardship and trials at last, Anni and her first students have established a sisterhood of great integrity. Their monastic nature took root during the third period, when they finally established the official sisterhood in the monastery of South-East Zheradan.

Anni's Path


There are those who lay down and die, and whether they live will be decided at the mercy of another. And there are those who will fight tooth and nail and will never be broken, as there is no foe great enough to bring them down. The body can be broken and the bones can be broken and the flesh can be rent, but the spirit will cling to the power of will that cannot be subdued. Such a soul will survive the darkest of times, the greatest of pain, the worst of nightmares and emerge triumphant. Anni is such a soul.

Unholy Beginnings

As a child, she beheld her mother's death at the hand of her father. She fled, with her mother's necklace - an ankh - in hand. Years spent in the street have steeled her soul. Taught by her vagabond uncle, befriended a dark elven child while spending her days in the sewer pipes during a harsh winter when she was 12, and found her first male friend and later closer relationship with a pirate deckhand only a year older at the age of 13.
Captured after a raffle with the bruisers of the same House of Ladies which Mary was the arranger of at the age of 14, Anni became a lethal warrior by the age of 15 and only wished for a normal life that she had seen all those citizen girls live, outside the House's window. Due to her exposure to the darker aspects of life, for a while she was defensive with men, with a handful of exceptions.

The wizard bailing her from the House of Ladies was no ordinary conjuror. Simply referred to as The Archmage,and by titles such as Lord Steelsoul and Doomsinger, Shandallain Shissath Glaurd'har was a rightfully feared conossieur of the arcane arts. One of the ancient Ghazakiin, a species believed to be a common root to both Elves and Fey and thus ancestors to all of the metahuman races, and known as a legendary figure who had faced mythical beings in battle. His family would take care of Anni, seemingly to repay an old debt of honour to Anni's late vagabond uncle.
The fifteen year old girl was taken to spend time in a city called freeport, where she would confront fearsome adversaries even saving the life of the sea-elven queen Sca'Pel Tria Redriner. The orphan has hence spent much time among paladins, holy knights, priests and royalty of both the Ghazakiin and of the various coalescent societies representing themselves in the social pool of Freeport, among them her future husband, Alastor Kedal. Eventually adopted by the queen, Anni took the last name Redriner and was named duchess for a short-lived twenty months of struggling to uphold justice in a world of darkness.
Fleeing Freeport after so long, crestfallen from her failure to maintain law and order, she was headed back to Rivenwood, the sea-elven kingdom, and then taken by The Archmage's daughters, to their own home in Kymlun. The sixteen year old Anni would spend a few valuable weeks among the daughters of the wizard, making life-long friends, becoming one of the sisters herself and meeting two of her former mentors, the wizard's brother Glortor'Rai and eldest son Mountain Dragon Glaurd'Har.

Zero to Hero

The latter of which she was sent off to train with: after a brief fight and utterly destroying three bandits at a market lotus style, she was assigned to the eldest son for a training seemingly in discipline and endurance. Taken to an old mountain temple by Mountain Dragon to train, his unarmed combat was far superior to hers. She was spiteful and did land a good kick or two, but the man seemed to handle it much better than the bouncers and customers. She finally found somebody to learn respect from, rather than spite. Wasn't the same she felt for Mary, it was different. She found him beautiful, not like the people that smelled bad and kept trying to touch her. This one treated her like a person, and it was new and exciting. And then one day after a long trial she fell asleep on the same stone floor and rug, but woke up and her teacher was no-where to be found, unlike the days before.

Return to the city

After the weeks of training and relieving herself of the weight-straps, she was headed back to civilisation. She wandered back towards the town downhill and drifted with the crowd, into a colosseum. She needed new clothes, so she stole. She needed money to pay it back, because she felt bad for stealing, and because she knew she could make money. Anni entered the fight, because she had frustration to vent and because she needed money. The tiny pleated skirt, white thong panties and cleavage top did wonders for her body. She wasn't even surprised, just kept kicking and winning. One pair of balls. Another. Yet another. And before she knew there she stood with the champion Bart "Bird" Dirkins collapsed holding himself in agony and the announcer confusedly shouting her name as champion of the arena.

Little Miss Shatterfist

After the victory at the public arena, everybody had something to say to the seventeen year old girl. People wanted her to solve their problem or to sell something with her, or even to just marry them, or their brothers or sons. Others were outraged, claimed that it was set-up and no mere girl can defeat the great champion of the arena. She was called horrible things, great things, nobody actually bothered wanting to know who she is, they all seemed to have their own ideas. Disgusted, Anni fled towards the mountain top overlooking the city.
After a little while a red dragon appeared above the city, breathing fire and destroying the towers. She would not hesitate, taking a running start off of the high mountain cliff and jump on the large creature's back, measuring a heavy strike to the back of its head, sending it plummeting into the cobbles of the main square. Upon landing, a struggle began at the end of which she landed a strike hard enough to shatter the dragon's jaw.

The First Sisters

Anni soon became a public sight. She knocked out orcs, bandits, petty robbers, caught street thieves (and gave them food while pretending to drag them off towards the guard rax) and generally grew immense controversial respect. Each time arrested, each time bailed by the wizard or his family, and the high ranking officer Lady Knight Karani Sannard fondly releasing her with a warm headshake each time anew. Young women loved her. Most men wanted to mouth off. Prove she's a fake.
This fat girl a couple years younger walks up to her one day "Hey, can --"
"I ain't give no autographs. Look I'm jus' a girl loike y'self a'ite?"
"... I was wondering if you could teach me."
Anni would pause looking the girl over. She looked like she hasn't had it hard until recently, still chubby, her hair still glistening and healthy under the dirt and the torn clothes were vastly amiss on her. An orphan, she said, and since her Papa has gone missing, and their home lost, she has had been living at the orphanage.
Fathers are scums, Anni thought to herself and would nod slowly. "Ten pushups a day, increase by ten every time you feel it to be easy. Run a mile every morning and one every evening. Increase by one when you feel it's easy."
Rich spoiled kid won't lift a finger like the rest- she thought to herself. But when the redhead got cornered and knocked on the noggin in an alley, a girl wearing a similar short dress as hers, jumped in and saved her. Looking closer, it was the girl from months back. Cassie was her name and she was the first girl to follow Anni. Then came Lindy. Long story short, the monastery Anni was taken to, to get her away from public, was male only at the time.

Lindy wore glasses, her hair tied at mid-back and dirty as it gets, and she hid books under her perch. She was an orphan taken in by the order but she was cooking and cleaning, not allowed to attend classes. She read the books and secretly copied the moves of the monks that she could peek for, when she was mopping up the floor while they trained. Caught one day while watching Anni practice, the abbot was about to get her flogged. Anni kicked the first disciple's ass (well, more like balls) horribly.

The first disciple's who was about to flog Lindy. This right before the Grand Master who came to visit. His dark robe was runed and the hood hid his face entirely. The abbot was outraged. The grandmaster clapped his hands and the voice, familiar as it gets.
"I see the trials weren't in vain." it was the monk who taught her in the mountains.

Anni refused the Adept rank and said she'll earn it like everybody else but she requested that Lindy be taught everything she, herself was. "Teach her then." the grandmaster said and the abbot's head went eggplant-colored. Unheard of, outrage, and all that, but he would, anyway. After a brief set of events which were related to haunts and other adventurish stuff, Cassie showed up on the doorsteps of the monastery. The abbot just shook his head, knowing where this will lead. It did too as news of a girl kicking men in the balls wearing a miniskirt and shouting "For Anni" was starting to cause a massive uproar back in Solinar. Anni and the two girls set out to catch this impostor. Colette was caught after a whole day of Yackety Sax - worthy chase across town and pinned down by an exhausted Cassie and Anni. when they asked her wtfshe said:
"I wanna be part of the Anni gang. Wanted to prove t' ya bitches I'm good fer it. So, am I in?"
She was in. Colette proposed that they make this official, though Anni was reluctant at first and downright refused for it to be called an Anni Gang. She proposed it be called the Lotus Order. Female only because of those stuck up monks and their male only policy. (And because a guy's sack would be shook up, scrambled, squished and torn up from all the twirls and hops and jumps and splits and high kicks the Lotus Fist uses.) And then girls came and the Lotus got one third then one half of the monastery... Anni took the book and hid it well, Lindy continuing to write on its unfinished pages that a new era of the Lotus has been formed and they will replace the old doctrines of stealth and murder with that of protecting those who cannot protect themselves, standing for what is worth standing for and sisterhood for love and purity. They changed the dressing code from kimono to miniskirt, and after gathering resources they started to become something much greater, with a new generation of girls joining.

Masters of Fate

The sisterhood expanded by a handful of new girls every year. The eighteen years old Anni, twenty-two years old Lindy, seventeen years old Cassie and fifteen years old Colette have first given a new home to a runaway elven princess, Sylvialea. With her talent at arcane magic, the group was complete. They started to train together and form a crime-fighting team based on cooperation and the coordinated use of their talents. Under Anni's leadership, Lindy's lore, Cassie's brawn, Colette's nimbleness and Sylvie's magic became a potent combination that solved any and every problem they were presented with.
The greatest problem they faced yet presented itself in the form of Mianiel. She appeared and attempted to strike Anni down with her katana, resulting in a swift battle and the enemy Anni could not fathom, fleeing. The redhead couldn't possibly imagine why her former friend would attack her like that. Following Mianiel, she managed to pin the confused half-elven and finally gained troubling information: both Mianiel and Mary seemed to believe that Anni stole the Lotus Codex. Anni reassured Mianiel that the book remained with her on accident and that she only used it to reform the sisterhood.
Returning to the monastery now with a new ally, Anni found the sisters slain and Mary standing victorious. It took both her and Mianiel in a battle to the end to subdue their former mentor, Mianiel eventually managing to stab her. Yet the body disappeared. This was the first time the sisters had to deal with demonic presence, and as Anni miraculously resurrected her fallen comrades, at the cost of falling in bed for a week, Mianiel pledged her allegiance to the True Lotus. She finally knew where she belongs.
The race for Mary's soul was an intense battle of will. The combined magics of Lindy and Sylvie have managed to liberate the old lady from the grasp of the demon queen Sinerra, and she ultimately joined up with her new daughters, teaching and preparing them, and many generations of disciples to come, before she was laid to final rest by the riverside as she wished.

Betrayer Saga

The Ghazakiin showed up in numbers, requesting Anni to follow them. She of course wanted to know what this was about, but they were adamant that she will only be told once they step out of reach for mortal ears. The girls insisted to tag along, and so they did. They were taken to a large ancient chamber of pillars, meeting nine others, many of whom Anni already knew - among them Alastor himself. They were briefed that Anni, Alastor and the others are in fact the Nine Chosen, prophecised to bring down a nearly invincible enemy, known only as the Betrayer.
This saga is far too extensive and mostly unrelated to the Sisterhood. See Kymlun Wiki for more details.

Sinerra's Treachery

It was during the time when Mary was still with the sisters, that Sinerra showed up and formed an earthen base with her son, known only as Zed, in charge. Her goal was to capture the younger Lotus and turn them into her loyal servants via brainwashing. Even though such attempts happened many times, she eventually had to give up on that plan and instead used succubi and other female demons to form an army similar to the Lotus, and no less effective. This army has been a formidable counterpart to the sisterhood ever-since.
After Zed's failure to capture the girls, a daughter by the name of Calebra took over.

Dusk's Lace

It is said that when a great power is born in the universe, it is measured and is either given boundaries and flaws, or a counterforce. Due to Anni's divine origins, another child was born at the other end of the world, by the name of Kha'thriin Thothraegan. Her mother was the supreme reign of the Shade folk, a people infernal in origin and with natural affinity for dark magic and the shadow-arts. Kh'thriin - or Thrinii as she's been called by the girls - grew up under Calebra's instruction following her mother's death and the demonic woman marrying her father in a human disguise.
Following a great battle, Anni finally understood the true nature of the counterforce and performed a ritual which set both of them to a neutral state, thus allowing them to coexist with one another. Citation needed. See Kymlun Wiki or contact GLoRToR for story details!

Babylon Conflict

The Gate of Gods was left behind by the elder deities who fled our world, leaving it for the mortals to govern. However, it has been found and been brought to light; Babylon, the Skytower, the ancestral legacy of all godkind towered over the northern wastes and something had to be done about its power. Through trials and tribulations two opposing forces were formed by unlikely alliances. In one corner the Crusade, those who wished to open the gate and change the world forever. In the other corner the Preserverate, whom wished for it to remain closed.
Corruption, blood and gore, wars of men and the invoking of dark forces have lead to demons, undead and worse threatening to overrun the mortal realms, and thus with one desperate move, the Gate has been opened. The Great Beyond spilled forth unto the mortal realm and formal war, Armageddon has been stated. It was up to the Sisterhood, the Nine Chosen and many of the adventurers to avert the nigh-inevitable end.
Eventually they managed, and even though two thirds of the realm has been plunged into darkness for the foreseeable future with undead and demons swarming the countryside, civilisation has managed to recede towards the southern and far western lands to persevere.

Three Hundred Years

Once the Fourth Godswar hit, and the Skytower of Babylon opened wide its obsidian gates, the Lotus Fist were first in line to stand up to the menace as it came. With unmatched bravery and unparallelled skill the Flower Ladies engaged the onslaught and stood their ground heroically. Achieving global acknowledgement from nearly all races and cultures, the illegal order finally stood high in the ranks of the protectors of life and balance. Establishing a sub-order in almost every kingdom from Westport to Babylon, they finally attained the respect they deserved, though with the three hundred years to follow - and to Anni's better advice - the fame seemed to decline and they returned into the shadows, to protect that which is worth protecting with no less vigor, but far less noise and publicity.
Many of the sisters, among them Anni, have given birth to children. Anni's daughter from Alastor, Miya is an adult woman today, and one of the most well-known order masters of the sisterhood.

Present Day

Today the Sisterhood shares the Midnight Dawn monastery with the male side of the order and shares the respect they gain world-wide as well. Their extensive networking and advanced society well surpasses most structures known to the people of their timeline, and they are among the most renowned champions of Kymlun. Their monastic lifestyle is lived in peace and with interruptions only where necessary.

Champions Setting


It was during one of many excursions into Planarspace that Anni met the Champions via a portal. After defeating a common enemy they have parted ways, only to meet years later and rekindle an old alliance. The sisterhood now represents itself in Millennium City and is ready to undertake what-ever task there was needed to be done.

STATUS

As a primarily lawful organisation, the Monastic Sisterhood of Lotus Fist will strive for an autonomous cooperation with what-ever law-enforcement agencies exist in their immediate vicinity. Exceptions to this are tyranny and martial law, neither of which do they support or wish to take part in. Both democracy and monarchy, as well as related forms of legal status will be supported, though their personal law will always come first. (They cannot be paradoxically forced to take innocent lives by a twisted law decree for example.)

Policies

Restraint Policy

As a monastic order, the Sisterhood operates under strict internal law on when involvement is allowed or not allowed. The final decree of importance is that once the glove is off, it stays off. Direct involvement in every case will result in the shortest route to solving the problem at hand, be that a case of self-defence or a legal case. The sisterhood cannot and will not be made responsible for the well-being of offenders who do not understand to stand down, nor will the sisterhood maintain the safety of individuals who do not follow operational decree, immediate advice or straight warning. This also applies to non-martial situations.
NOTE: This policy is overridden to some degree by C/A (Capture Alive) and NV (No Violence) circumstances in missions.

Gender Policy

The sisterhood is not for men. The sisterhood cannot and will not be made responsible for what-ever happens to a man who's exposed to their practices, clear warnings will be issued. Men who suffer any manner of injury, trauma or loss cannot and will not be compensated. Male fans, followers and stalkers of the order will be dealt with based on the Companionship decree.

Code of Honour

Gi (Truth): A sister deals openly and honestly with others and cleaves to the ideals of justice. A lotus will not be wronged. No mercy once the glove is off.
Yu (Courage): Protect those who cannot protect themselves. A sister never fears to act, but lives life to the fullest. Respect and caution replace fear.
Jin (Compassion): A sister takes every opportunity to aid others, and creates opportunities when they do not arise. As a powerful individual, a sister has a responsibility to use that power to help others. A lotus will not wrong another.
Rei (Serenity): All life is sacred. Courtesy reveals one’s true strength. A sister has no reason to threaten or brag, and no need to prove her strength. A lotus will not start aggression but will always finish.
Meyo (Honour): A sister’s conscience is the judge of her honor. The decisions she makes and how she carries them out are a reflection of her true nature.
Makoto (Sincerity): Speak your mind unless it harms those you care for or brings dishonour to yourself. Speak truth and your heart be true.
Chugo (Loyalty): Lotus first - We are one.

Legal Status in Kymlun

The Lotus Sisterhood is an organic part of the Twilight Church as an autonomous agency. This is due to Anni's and Lindy's statuses as Twilight Archbishop and Twilight Bishop. This however also sets them in an uncomfortable situation where in many cases they are simply not allowed to interfere with issues that otherwise would fall under the sisterhood's direct involvement policies. In most such cases the sisterhood will need to report directly to the arch-council of the Midnight Dawn and that may slow down the process and response time regarding the issue at hand.

Legal Status in the Champions setting

The sisterhood operates under full LTK-IVP (License To Kill, Immediate Violence Permit) and does not respond to any superior agency, but instead shares information and reports with UNTIL and PRIMUS as it has been agreed to.

EQUIPMENT

Equipment the sisterhood uses is mostly unknown to outsiders. The information here is documented for lore purposes and should not be taken as public or readily available, with some exceptions of course. If unsure, contact us!

Clothing

NOTE: Information regarding clothing is to be handled on a case-by-case basis. In cases where a male character oogles a Lotus Sister, make sure to send a tell to the sister in question and please do not assume to know anything until role play has been made! Refer to Techniques for details!

File:CO-Lotus Uniforms.jpg
Designs and details may vary but the overall style remains. Lotus Sisters adore and take good care of their uniforms.

File:CO-Lotus OnePiece.jpg
These also come in various colours as above, and personalised designs as requested.

File:CO-Lotus Training.jpg
Sisters may often be seen wearing an outfit such as this one - to training sessions or when they are spending their free time. These also come in various colours as above, and personalised designs as requested.

Beauty is one of the greatest weapons and the Lotus Sisterhood applies this weapon excessively, as the mere presence of a Lotus Girl will most likely distract, disrupt, disturb most men in the area. The more trained and skilled the girl is, the more the damage done. Because of this, there is a unique dresscode in place within the sisterhood that is cultivated and adored by each and every member, each of their own reasons, and a few common reasons as well.
As beauty leads to distraction and distraction leads to defeat in many cases, clothing is one of the major and most important aspects of the Lotus Sister's culture.
Dresscode of the sisterhood includes miniskirt, a revealing top, and thong panties. This is due to practices and techniques which involve these clothes and one will not find a Lotus Sister wearing anything else. Lotus Sisters are proud of their clothing, but will not behave like a stupid slut and always conduct themselves with alluring elegance or at the very least girlish guile. The sisterhood designs, creates and maintains their own equipment. Ironsilk is a fabric which surpasses kevlar armour in toughness yet remains soft. Diamondsteel is an alloy of Mithral which well surpasses molecularised steel plating in protection value. One primary rule is to never wear the same colour lingerie as the skirt, the sisters generally aim for dark skirt and light panties or light skirt and dark panties. This further helps the distraction value of the dresscode.


Pieces: Lotus Top (Sports Top, Sleeve top),
Fabric: Ironsilk with crystallized Diamondsteel threading.
Properties: Cold Resistance, Heat Resistance, Acid-Repellent, Electrical Resistance, Tear-proof, Protective cushioning, Antiperspirant cushioning.
Sizes: Standard lettering and numbering. (EG. 32C)
Specifics: As Lotus sisters never wear a bra, it is important that these tops provide with extra protection and are comfortable. The built-in suspensions allow for a safe and comfortable fit, freedom of movement and no slipping. Safe to say the Lotus Top becomes a girl's second skin. The protective cushioning is rather thin yet provides with more than enough protection.



Pieces: Lotus Mini (Pleated Skirt, Circle Skirt, One-Piece Dress)
Fabric: Ironsilk with crystallized Diamondsteel threading.
Properties: Cold Resistance, Heat Resistance, Acid-Repellent, Electrical Resistance, Tear-proof.
Sizes: Lotus Mini come in four lengths, depending on the girl's preference. (NOTE: The game does not allow for this to show. The medium skirt is far too long while the short skirt counts as micro mini.)
Size-2: The hem reaches to mid-thighs.
Size-1: The hem reaches an inch below the butt-line.
Size-0: The hem sits right at the butt-line.
Specifics: One of the sisterhood's primary weapons of distraction, Lotus Mini draws and captures the eye. Each come without constriction threading in the hem and thus flutter freely, allowing for distraction-technique to be applied with ease.

Side Straps: Typically elastic suspension-based, rarely tie-ups because of slipping issues.
Back String: Elastic and thin for a safe and comfortable fit.
Back Triangle: Never sheer and always a graceful shape of a moderate amount of fabric sitting at the waist-butt region.
Lace: Inset- or hem-lace designs may vary from excessive lace to a modest amount of frills, highly frilly to elaborate lace.

Armaments

The sisters are often seen using various throwing, piercing and cutting weapons, as well as traditional oriental weaponry. They do not use firearms such as rifles or guns even where available. Longbows and shortbows are as close as they get to ranged weaponry.

Pieces: Lotus Boots
Fabric: Shadowbeast leather, diamondsteel blade heel and frame suspension, ironsilk interior with crystallized Diamondsteel threading.

Specifics: One of the main weapons of the sisterhood, the Lotus Striders are the pinnacle of the sisterhood's craftsgirlship. Metal caps and an elaborate frame suspension with a retractable scythe at the back of the heel region make these blade-heeled boots a fearsome armament while the artifact-level enchantments, embedded gems and engraved runes further increase the effectiveness. Due to the construction there is no danger of wet feet when treading through swamp water and the interior design was meant to take the shape of the sister's foot, so comfort is a non-issue as well. The knees, shins, toes and heels are well set with metal, though one boot does not weigh more than average legwear.

The interior design was meant to take the shape of the sister's hand, so comfort is a non-issue as well.

Tools

Various divisions have various different tools. See the divisions section for details.

Technology

The sisterhood uses ancient crystalline technology, magitech, steam-power and many other mechanical methods, but circuitry is not yet invented in their timeline. One of their greatest innovation is the Lotus Necklace which functions as an identification- , tracking- and communications device at the same time. It has been proven that the sisters can communicate through radio waves using their crystalline technology, which also allowed them to call mobile phones by homing in on the signal of the phone.

Magic

There are many, various types and natures of magic within the sisterhood from arcane to divine, natural to scientific, bloodline to practical. The sisterhood pays close attention to meditation and their casters' well being.


STRUCTURE

The sisterhood's structure is militaristic, but not unlike a religious order's structure. Every sister is equal before higher-ups, and orders are rarely given - or needed to be given, in all honesty. The sisterhood's practices are based on tradition, utility and an individual and personal need to follow and adhere to the tradition out of simple love for the community. Far-fetched as it may seem, it works. No Lotus will desire to fall out of line, simply because they understand the consequence of one chain link not functioning properly.

Ranks


Little Flowers

Little Flowers are the lowest rank of the sisterhood. This does not make them underdogs or weaklings, neither does it set them in an uncomfortable position. On the contrary! Little Flowers are generally taken good care of and made feel welcome from day one through out their training, helping their integrity and making their drilling all the more pleasant. Every girl goes through basic training before they may take the next step-up. How fast they rank up, entirely depends to themselves. It is worth noting that those who take slower are not reprimanded, but rather given more well-earned attention to, with special regard to finding the source of their hardship with loving care. Problem children are often assigned to a separate teacher who will spend exclusive time helping said girl improve.

Candidate (Wildflower)

Girls who have the required characteristics, become Lotus Candidates. Candidates are watched by the sisterhood for an extensive period of time before they are given the choice and opportunity to join, but only after being properly informed and educated. Several types of girls will never be accepted into the order, because they would not enjoy their stay and would not benefit the sisterhood. The most important thing in a girl is her intelligence and empathy. Girls who do not have a certain amount of both will never make the cut.(Knowing proper English and having bearable typing skills are a must. This is actual role play, we prefer three-dimensional characters with personalities and an active player.) Girls who have a far too great sexual drive and only want to use their beauty for sexual pleasure will also not be accepted.(Single purpose ERP characters shoo.) Imbalanced personalities without the affinity for improvement will also be offered help but not membership. (Drama queens are out.) Girls who are too shy or unable to stand up for themselves when necessary are also not the right type of candidate. (Have to enjoy the Lotus concept, techniques and be ready to play and take part.)

Initiate (Blooming)

After being given an entry talk and made sure that the girl fits the requirements, a candidate will be initiated. The first rank in the sisterhood, initiates or Blooming Lotus are taught the fundamentals of the Lotus Fist and will eventually take an examination to step up in ranks. There is no pressure to reach the next rank and an initiate is a full fledged member of the sisterhood without any need to prove herself any further. Initiates are not sent on dangerous missions nor are allowed near situations of lethal danger as they are most likely not prepared to face this. Initiates will only receive missions of rank E and D.

Junior(Little Sister)

A girl will have to be at the very least 14 years of age and with a matured mind and body before she is allowed to practice the Lotus Fist. Children and childish girls will not be allowed to wear the challenging uniform and practice the controversial arts of the sisterhood. A girl who has met the above criteria but is not yet of adult age (18 for humans, 120 for elves, equivalent for other races) will receive Junior status. Initiate rules apply to Junior members and they will be treated with the same strict discipline as any other sister. They will not be allowed to observe or practice forbidden techniques whatsoever, unless with grandmaster's commission.


Lotus Sisters

An average Lotus Disciple can do away with three armed, trained soldiers alone. Higher ranks of the order are achieved through persistance, reliability and faith. Most girls reach disciple rank and remain faithful to the order even if they retire at the early twenties of their life and settle with a husband. They'll never divulge the order's secrets or betray the order though, but all they were taught makes them an incredible person for the rest of their lives.

Lotus Disciple(Sister)

The largest pool in the sisterhood, members who reach disciple rank will become full-fledged and undisputed sisters with few restrictions and little left to be desired. Many girls never make it past Disciple rank and would eventually retire and get married to live a normal woman's life. Those who pursue a life to remain with the sisterhood for good, may attempt to step up in rank and perhaps even attain true enlightenment eventually. Disciples already know the fundamentals and are eventually granted a colour, based on which they will join the division most fitting of their capabilities, be that melee, stealth, spellcasting or healing. A disciple has no issues dealing with large numbers of above-average fighters. Disciples will be sent on missions up to B-Rank.

Lotus Flower(Highsister)

A Highsister is a specialist Disciple who has attained and perfected her division's colour. After another exam, a disciple will gain her coloured outfit and be simply referred to as a Lotus Flower, though they tend to just call themselves Disciples still. These girls are most likely to shoot for an Adept rank eventually, though many of them prefer to remain at their assigned task for as long as they remain with the sisterhood. A Highsister is extremely powerful and few men even stand a chance at laying a finger on her. Highsisters may take part in missions up to A-Rank.

Lotus Adept (Greatsister)

Becoming an adept takes dedication and long years, but exceptionally talented disciples reach this rank faster. An adept governs a Squadron, which is anywhere between three and twelve girls. An adept understands the advanced doctrines of every colour and is a master of her own discipline. She's a one-girl army in her own right, capable of defeating a group of trained men and go toe-to-toe with a demon, or to discipline a roguish black- or blood lotus girl. Adepts are lieutenants of the Order Masters.


Leadership

Order Master (Greatflower)

The Order Master rank is achieved when an Adept reaches mastery in all colors as far as her abilities permit.
Blue Adepts will never master Red Lotus perfectly because they are not casters.
Black Adepts will never master White Lotus perfectly because they practice ruination not sustenance.
White Adepts will never master Black Lotus perfectly because they are healers not destroyers.
Red Adepts will never master Blue Lotus perfectly because their focus is not physical combat.
All the same all divisions love and respect one another, despite slight differences at times.
An order master is a colonel, with anywhere between one to four adepts.
Order Masters govern the education and acquisition of disciples, educate the Adepts and represent the order to the fullest.
An Order Master possesses superhuman abilities and is capable of bringing down a dragon or armies of undead on her own.
Order Masters are obeyed and bowed down to even by the most unruly of black- or blood-lotus girls.

Leading Master (Highmother)

The Leading Master is the leader of a color, third in command. These Order Masters are one of a kind, governing all girls belonging under their own doctrine though capable of educating even other Order Masters in another color, even if they are not casters themselves for example. A Leading Master is a power to be reckoned with, a legend in her own right. There is one Leading Master of a color at the time.

Grandmaster (Greatmother)

Co-Grandmasters are second in command. The Grandmaster is one of a kind. Her duty is to serve and be a bastion for the order, she is an icon to look up to, revered by all the girls and even the other masters of the order - as she was their master to begin with.

Retired Sister

Once a Lotus, always a Lotus. Women who chose to settle and grow old are granted the same honour as any sister who remained within the monastery's walls and will always be welcome, and are often visited. A sister's daughter is often granted a scholarship, internship or immediate admittance depending on circumstances, while the son of a daughter may immediately gain friend status or even protected status. Such decisions are made on a case by case basis.


Companionship

NOTE: Beyond this point role play is of mutual consent. This information is here for those interested and is no knowledge available in-character through any other method but talking to the girls. OOC discussion required before any such role play for personal discretion. Mutual respect applies in every case!

The sisterhood is not for men. The sisterhood cannot and will not be made responsible for what-ever happens to a man who's exposed to their practices, clear warnings will be issued. Men who suffer any manner of injury, trauma or loss cannot and will not be compensated.

The following rules apply to all males regardless of rank:
- No male is safe from a debilitating kick to the testicles. The higher the rank the least likely that it would happen!
- No free stuff, everything comes at a price!
- Entering Lotus Training or another girl-group activity, the male needs to ask permission to be present. If denied, it is final!
- When asked to leave, there is to be no arguing!
- Various divisions have their own personal rulings on certain things, ask them!
- Beware the No Mercy policy, watch out for the less tolerant girls!
Like with everything, the sisterhood has a special policy for males as well. The following Tolerance Ranks apply to those of the weaker sex:

Respected Status

Rank: T7
Granted to: Family members, mentors, close relations
Attained: Granted via Master Council. Cannot be applied for.
Duration: Permanent or until forsaken.
Mistakes: 1
Demotion: Protected or Friend Status
Reacquired: 5 months active proof
A man who has proven his worth such as Lord Alastor himself. These, as the rank title says, are given a treatment of respect and courtesy all across the board, even though crossing the lines is still punished, these men are of Respected status because such trespasses will never happen. Those of Respected Status are listed and all the sisters are well aware of this. Only a true gentleman will ever attain such a status, and only very rarely. A single trespass will demote such a man. Family members such as husbands to Protected status, the rest to Friend Status.

Protected Status

Rank: T6
Granted to: Family members, mentors, close relations, mission escortees
Attained: Granted via Master Council, or if a man is to be escorted.
Duration: Permanent or until the mission is over, or until forsaken.
Mistakes: 3
Demotion: Tolerated Status
Reacquired: 12 months active proof
Either for males who have fallen under the protective aegis of the sisterhood, or children, husbands and brothers of the sisterhood. These, as the rank title says, are given a treatment of protection, even though crossing the lines is still punished after two warnings. The third warning is generally testicular damage which can still be healed by a White Lotus Sister, unless extreme conditions. Those of Protected Status are listed and all the sisters are well aware of this. Demotion is even more painful as those who lose trust at this status will have to work hard to regain it.

Friend Status

Rank: T5
Granted to: Tolerated and proven, sons/brothers/husbands by default
Attained: Granted via girl reports, or applied for by the Lotus for her family members.
Duration: Permanent or until forsaken.
Mistakes: 3
Demotion: Target Status
Reacquired: 12 months active proof
When a male enjoys the benefits of friend status he can get away with more and he is granted permission and admittance where those of lower status would never be allowed to tread, even though crossing the lines is still punished after two warnings. The third warning is generally testicular damage which can still be healed by a White Lotus Sister, unless extreme conditions. Those of Protected Status are listed and all the sisters are well aware of this. Demotion is even more painful as those who lose trust at this status will have to work hard to regain it. Friend status are subdued only slightly less often than those of lower status, the same amount as Tolerated status but with less traumatic excitement.

Tolerated Status

Rank: T4
Granted to: Fans. Guys who learn their place and show no pride but are ready to be near the girls.
Attained: Only applied for, as a man has to prove his courage - though girl reports factor in.
Duration: Permanent or until forsaken.
Mistakes: 2
Demotion: Victim Status
Reacquired: Never, or rarely
When a male proves his courage by talking to the girls sincerely, he may be reported to be good for Tolerance, even though crossing the lines is still punished after two warnings. The second warning is generally testicular forfeit which practically means the loss of a nut. Magical healing may restore this, but those who were deserving of such a humiliating fate will very rarely be granted the courtesy. Tolerated status are subdued only slightly less often than those of lower status, and are subject to traumatic excitement.

Target Status

Rank: T3
Granted to: Stalkers. Guys who failed to learn their place but keep trying.
Attained: Marked.
Duration: Permanent.
Mistakes: 2
Demotion: Victim Status
Reacquired: N/A
When a male fails to be sincere yet constantly keeps trying, he may be reported to be ripe for a lesson of his life, even though the second warning is generally testicular forfeit which practically means the loss of a nut. Magical healing may restore this, but those who were deserving of such a humiliating fate will very rarely be granted the courtesy. Target status are hunted down and practiced upon, and are susceptible to various forms of effects from vulnerability to intolerance and beyond.

Victim Status

Rank: T1
Granted to: Stalkers, failed attempts.
Attained: Marked.
Duration: Permanent.
Mistakes: N/A
Demotion: N/A
Reacquired: N/A
The lowest status to fall to, the constant stress from being a victim to the Lotus will drive a man paranoid and nearly insane. Very few ever fall so deep before the Ladies and most of them know better and flee outside of horizon radius of the sisterhood. Ruination by Lotus Standards is the worst thing that can happen to a man, leaving him completely unable to function in his gender as well as in part a member of society due to his traumas and fears.

Neutral Status

Strangers are granted common courtesy and a proper amount of politeness from the sisters. Their personal conduct commands them to be, and to uphold a pleasant reputation fo the sisterhood. Those who remain neutral to the order are the safest from the sisters, if there is such a thing as safe.

Statistics

One girl out of a hundred is any likely to become a lotus girl.
An average Lotus Disciple can do away with three armed, trained soldiers alone.
One girl in every fifty lotus girls will become an adept.
One out of every fifty Adepts ever become an Order Master.


Doctrines

Symbolics

File:CO-Lotus Symbol.jpg
The sisterhood uses the combined symbol of Yin-Yang, Eight Petal Lotus, and Eight Trigrams (Ba Gua) to signify the true nature of the monastic order as one which encompasses and welcomes all knowledge but seeks to remain pure while dwelling within the dirt of the world.

Throughout many cultures and religions over time, the lotus has been a powerful image and a spiritual symbol. In many of these, the lotus is considered a sacred flower.Among its many meanings and significance, the lotus is a symbol of "spontaneous" generation, and so it also represents divine birth, spiritual development and creation itself. The bud of the lotus symbolizes potential, specifically of a spiritual nature. Because the lotus rises from unclean water to blossom as a pure, uncontaminated flower, it is a symbol of purity and resurrection.In the same way the lotus flower goes through much in its growth before emerging from dirty water to become a beautiful flower, the individual consciousness does the same on its path to enlightenment as the so-called impurities of unenlightened thinking gradually fade.

According to ancient scriptural text which details the life of Gautama Buddha, "the spirit of the best of men is spotless, like the new lotus in the [murky] water which does not adhere to it." As the lotus is pure in the water, so the soul is also pure. The eight petals of the white lotus correspond to the Noble Eightfold Path of the Good Law. This lotus is found at the heart of the Garbhadhatu Mandala, regarded as the womb or embryo of the world. The Mahayana sect of Buddhism maintains that all souls emerge from a lotus. The lotus is one of the eight auspicious signs of Buddhism and Hinduism, and the eight-petaled lotus seen in Buddhist mandalas means cosmic harmony. (Mandalas are geometric patterns used as symbolic or metaphysical representations of the universe, the spiritual path, etc.; mandalas are often used as a object of focus to aid in meditation. The thousand-petaled lotus signifies spiritual illumination. In this case, each opening of the petal is the gradual unfolding of the consciousness on the path of enlightenment. The specific yogic teaching that addresses energy centers within the human being, known as the chakra system, uses a lotus with varied numbers of petals to represent each particular chakra. The crown chakra is the thousand-petaled lotus, and so its blossoming indicates enlightenment. The Buddhist mantra "Om mani padme hum" refers to the "jewel in the lotus," which represents enlightenment. It is claimed that this mantra has great mystical power, with transcendental truth in its words. In buddhist and hindu writings, it is explained that "Om mani padme hum" [Oh Jewel in the Lotus Flower] signifies not only the jewel of man's divinity living within the lotus (the cosmos), but also the jewel of cosmic divinity living within the lotus (man). In other words, the mantra is saying, "I am in You and You are in me," thereby stating the unity and brotherhood of all beings, as well as their inner divine potential. This is one way of expressing the principle of "As above, so below." In spiritual literature from many sources, the lotus is a symbol for the macrocosm and the microcosm, the universe and man. The jewel in the lotus represents the divinity of the cosmos as well as the divinity of man. In ancient Egypt, spiritual teachings held that the lotus represented the sun, and therefore, creation and rebirth. This stemmed from the way the lotus flower closes its petals at night and sinks underwater, to rise and open the petals again at dawn. So it was said that the lotus gave birth to the sun. In certain Eastern teachings, the inner awareness — also called the inner heart or the inner mind — is symbolized by the lotus, and is found in the center of the heart. This is also called the lotus flower within. The heart-lotus or "lotus of heart" is the center of the infinite, omnipresent consciousness which connects with the consciousness of the universe. Through the intuition, one of man's divine gifts, the spiritual student can see the infinite, omnipresent consciousness as the lotus flower within himself. In esoteric Buddhism, the heart of beings is like an unopened lotus. When the Buddha nature (spiritual nature) develops on the inner, the lotus unfolds and blossoms. This is why the Buddha is depicted sitting on a blooming lotus. The lotus is seen extensively in Buddhist art, where Buddha images are typically positioned on a lotus — usually a double lotus — with petals facing both up and down. The protrusion sometimes found on the Buddha's head is also portrayed as a lotus.

As a holy symbol in Indian culture and a sacred symbol of Hinduism, the lotus is found throughout the Hindu scriptures. Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe in these scriptures, and Lord Vishnu, the preserver of the universe in these scriptures, are depicted sitting in a lotus. Lord Brahma is said to have been born from the lotus that was growing out of the navel of Lord Vishnu. In Vedic scripture, the body of Lord Krishna, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, is described as being like a bluish new-grown lotus flower. One of the eight auspicious symbols of Indian classical art, the Purankalsa Purnakalasa symbolizes abundance and creativity, and depicts overflowing foliage consisting of lotus buds, lotus flowers and lotus leaves. The motifs of Purankalsa are found inside the legendary Taj Mahal, which some believe to be an ancient hindu Temple rebuild by the Muslims, where the lotus is the prominent motif.

In many spiritual traditions, lotus flowers are especially sacred as an offering to the divine. The lotus also represents purity and non-attachment, and is a symbol of Bhakti or love for God. Most people let their love flow towards the mundan world. But a devotee redirects his love only towards God, who resides with in one’s heart. Though God is present everywhere, it is in the heart, our spiritual centre, that He manifests as Param-Atma or the Supersoul. The heart of the devotee is the ‘Lord’s temple room. Thus, the Lotus represents the heart. It is not the physical heart but the spiritual heart that the lotus represents. Mahanarayana Upanishad says, ‘In the citadel of the body, there is the small sinless and pure lotus of the heart which is the residence of the Supreme. It is stated by the Lord in the Vedas: “Oh, Human! This village [life] of yours is balanced on the lotus leaf and your lifespan is just alike a drop of water running down that leaf, which may fall any minute.”

Throughout history, Eastern poets, sages, saints, masters and gurus have associated the lotus also as a metaphor for the divine feet of the gods and other exalted spiritual beings. This is where the phrase "lotus feet" found in many Eastern teachings, originates. Pervading Eastern philosophy and religion for thousands of years, the lotus-feet is a metaphor for the divine feet of the gods, saints and other exalted spiritual beings. Figurative language, analogies and mystic descriptions are used in spiritual instruction throughout many teachings.

The four main doctrines come with a virtue each.

Discipline [Restraint]

A sane mind in a healthy body - goes the saying. Aspects of Discipline such as diligence, responsibility, and self-restraint are not innate, they need to be taught. For all ages, it can be hard to learn and develop these behaviours, as for the minds of younger individuals they are a new and uncharted territory, while with age the mind becomes more rigid and the person more set in her ways. Martial art is a useful way to practice discipline while maintaining a flexible mindset, and to learn about one's own limits, to extend those limits as well as how to apply similar observation to every other aspect of their being. Exercising any of the above excessively however may lead to problems - a law to learn that will serve us well in life.
Temper the steel well and it will bend well. Overdo, and it will break. As such, martial arts are more than a method for combat - self-defence and protection - they teach us about the consequences of our actions. This process leads to both self-respect and respect for others. The hard work I put in, I respect in another. Students have to respect their instructor, or they won’t be able to learn from her. They have to respect themselves in order to have the confidence to train properly.
Divide and conquer. Knowing how to disrupt the discipline of an attacker will yield in results akin to when one loses self-discipline herself: as above, so below. The discipline of a Lotus Sister is meant to be steadfast and easily adaptable to situations, while ready to face the enemy and take theirs. This duality is the nature of the Lotus Fist combat style.

Health [Prudence]

Health above, health below. Health without and within. The concept of wholesome existence encompasses a thorough understanding of one's own being to utmost detail as well as the comprehension of what is harmful or beneficial. This encompassing knowledge forms the core of the Lotus creed, that even though information available is unlimited, one must forever be open to learn something new. Paradoxically the rigid oaths and traditions of the sisterhood constantly adapt and envelope new interpretations and methods.
As such, Health in the Lotus Doctrine itself refers to not only the wholesomeness of the body, but the mind - through knowledge. This health is directly related to the virtue of prudence: the comprehension of wholesomeness and its endless road of development and improvement.
Where wholesomeness of knowledge and health brings salvation, disrupting both information and formation in the enemy ranks will lead to ruination. Applying wholesomeness as a weapon, as such, is a desirable way of leading the enemy astray and into its own failure through its own flaws.

Beauty [Refinement]

True beauty roots within and appears as a radiant presence which encompasses all. This beauty is not solely physical, but also a form of self-indulgence in finding the truth via improvement and refinement which necessarily leads to the sought path of perfection. Focus in itself is not enough: love needs to be applied to every manner of beauty for it to bloom, much like a garden which was tended to with care will bloom tenfold more brilliantly than one which was merely catered to.
Beauty which roots in one's mere existence will overwhelm and strike harder than any weapon, because such beauty is far greater than a force which lies merely in the physical self.

Dedication [Commitment]

Halfway is no way. Too little dedication leads to negligence. This is when the practitioner will feel lost in the practices as there is by far not enough involvement and will behind the act of practice.
Past the mark is too far. Too much dedication will lead to results opposite to the original intent, much like working out too much will lead to injury rather than health.
Knowing when and where to strike in battle is well and good, but knowing when not to battle is just as important. Kagehasu Kunoichi-Ryu teaches the importance of dedication and the opposite, aiming to attain peace of mind and a clear judgment in every situation.

Red Lotus: Force Erection
Duration: N/A
Description: A combination of a perfect body and arousing clothing forces a man's body to react against his own will.
Execution: Flashing or seeing a Lotus Sister's: Panties front (Pantyflash), Panties from below (Upskirt), Panties back (Thongflash or simply Thong/~ing/), Naked Chest (Titflash) in various combinations by lifting clothing, kicking high, crouching down / sitting with knees spreaded wide, bending over, etc.
Effects:
The man's eyes grow wide with disbelief at what he's seeing. His penile gland fills with blood and he enters sexual arousal. If not able to look away or flee, the victim gains an erection and unable to act out of reflect, gains tube vision and the urge increases each time anew.

Red Lotus: Excite - Touch Yourself!
Duration: N/A
Description: Repeated Force Erection checks against the target will increase sexual arousal and intensity to a point where the male target gains an itch which he cannot resist to scratch.
Execution: Repeated flashing will force and increase the manual reaction. Based on the level of arousal he may do so through his own pocket, or through the fabric of his pants, or reaching down his pants or even undoing his pants and taking it out in the final phases of arousal, depending on how much he likes what he sees or how much he has endured so far.
Effects:
Depending on intensity, the target may be:
1. Unable to stop his hand or look away.
2. Rooted, unable to move.
3. Unable to form complex speech patterns.
4. Unable to form coherent speech patterns.

Red Lotus: Force Kneel - On your knees!
Duration: N/A
Description: Repeated Force Erection checks against the target affected by "Touch Yourself!" may force him to fall to his knees.
Execution: Repeated flashing will force and increase the manual reaction to the point where the legs give out.
Effects:
Touching himself at such an intensity that his legs no longer hold, will send the victim to his knees. This status disables any possible defense or escape and resets the victim's Joy due to the impact, confining him at rank 2 and prolonging the inevitable. This also sets him up for Upskirts which he will now see constantly even if the skirt is not lifted.

Red Lotus: Execute - Joyful Relief
Duration: N/A
Description: At Rank3 of "Touch Yourself" the intensity of the arousal will reach to a point where all he wants to do is just get it all out and to hell with struggling against it. The boiling source of the itch bursts forth.
Execution: Increased flashing increases the reaction to a point of climax.
Effects:
Touching himself at such an intensity that it no longer compensates for the sight, he finally finds momentary relief.

Red Lotus: Blackout - Lights out!
Duration: N/A
Description: Flashing the target severely during Joyful Relief shuts down the brain and blurs the memories, leaving a confused, unconscious victim. Execution: Timed right, the victim passes out.
Effects:
Blurred memories, uncertain what just happened to him. Or just denial?

Blue Lotus: Dazzling Petals
Duration: Standard
Prerequisite: 20 dex
Description: Every time a Lotus Girl kicks her skirt flies with her panties flashing, forcing the male opponent to roll against Force Erection check.

Red Lotus Dance: Burst Flashing
Description: Most guys describe this as not even being given time to think, they haven't even finished to react to the initiation flash before the hundredth flash makes them spill.
Execution: The attacker performs quick flashes at an unrelenting pace with the intention of heightening the excitement of the victim.
Effects: The victim is instantly excited from the very first flash.

Red Lotus Dance: Upkeep Flashing
Description: Most guys describe it as he thought it was over and then it just started to get sexy.
Execution: The attacker makes the victim react real hard and then lets him calm down only to come at him even harder each time anew until he just can't take it anymore.
Effects: Prolonged excite, the target calming down to Excite rank2 before thrown back to Excite rank4 for a moment.

Red Lotus Dance: Passive Flashing
Description: Most guys describe this as a girl who's trouble to be around because she'll make you touch yourself and you won't even realise she's attacking.
Execution: The attacker's skirt keeps flying allover the place, forcing the victim to touch himself randomly and harder each time. (Upskirts mostly or sudden moves.) Many girls open with passives because the guy will react eventually.
Effects: stuck at Excite rank3

Red Lotus Dance: Intensity Flashing
Description: Too much of too beautiful.
Execution: The girl stops in front of the guy and keeps doing the same move the same way until he just can't take it anymore.
Effects: Fast relief.

Red Lotus: Curtsy
Duration: Rank
Description: She takes the corners of her mini and bends at the knees gently, offering a polite greeting. This greeting reveals both the front of the panties and the thong triangle in the back, creating a shocking experience from both directions.
Effect: Rooted until next move.

Red Lotus: Princess Walk
Duration: passive
Description: The victim can't take his eyes off of the constant merciless flashing, eventually his hand landing in his pocket.
Effect: Holding the hem of the too short skirt gracefully as if it was too long while she walks, the attacker's every step flashes her panties as per rules.

Red Lotus: Fidget
Duration: passive
Description: The victim can't take his eyes off of the constant merciless flashing, eventually his hand getting to work.
Effect: Holding the hem of her skirt absent-mindedly, the girl performs active flashes as if passive. Every flash conducted like this penalises like a passive flash but is rolled like an active one.

Blue Lotus: Nutkick
Duration: Rank
Description: His nuts collide with her leg in a painful scenario. Stunned, holding his balls until recovered.
Execution: Toe kick, Knee, Shin kick, heel / back kick or backstomp.
Effects:
Toe Kick - yelps and grabs his groin crying out "My balls" and jumps up and down. His targeted nut is sent upwards like a whiplash. Critical hit sends the nut into the abdominal gap, causing vomiting, nausea and possibly fainting.
Knee - grunts in pain and collapses cupping his hands over his scrotal sack.
Shin Kick - his legs tremble and unable to perform any action involving legs except for standing there and holding his balls.
Scramble Shin - The shin being moved like a grinder while performing the shin kick. The victim vomits shortly.
Heel - He cries out "My -- balls!!" and grabs his bleeding manhood. Permanent damage on crit hit.

Blue Lotus: Titslaps

Effects:
Swat - A whiplash with an open palm making the man flinch and hold his nuts in pain.
Knuckle/fist - A downblow making the sack stretch and the nuts pull away from the body unable to escape the strike of the fist. He gags the words "My balls...!" and collapses, holding his sack.
Hammerpunch - like a hammer, sending the nuts upwards. He gags the words "My balls...!" and collapses, holding his sack.
Uppercut - She goes down in splits and uses that momentum and force to send her strike upwards into his sack. The force of this punch is incredible because of the girl's weight being added to the speed, and a critical hit may pop a nut like a cherry.
Squeeze - Grabbing the nuts and squeezing them makes the target scream on a high pitched tone, unable to act.
Grab&Pull - Pulling instead of squeezing chokes the male's voice and he's unable to make a sound.

Black Lotus Dance: Interrupt
Duration: Instantaneous
Description: His semen recedes within him and he grasps his manhood in pain.
Execution: When a guy gets too excited but the attacker doesn't want his relief just yet, she'll place a nice firm interruption to his efforts, following up with more, slightly apologetic or downright overwhelming flashing.
Effects: Target's Joy is reset but he's in pain and probably fears her now. Takes twice as long to reach relief.
