TOAtone Physiology #1: Jinya
Jinya Skin is twice as thick as human skin.
Pros- More resistant to tissue damage and burns.
Keeps in water allowing to go longer without dehydration
More insulation so can handle lower temperature
Stores more oxygen stimulating greater blood flow.
Cons- Overheats faster.
Comprised Primarily of iron as opposed to calcium
Pros- Better at conducting oxygen allowing for better blood flow.
Higher density than human bone.
Cons- Takes longer to heal if broken

The primary benefit to having a higher blood-flow is that Jinya are able to perform great feats of strength because of having greater oxygen in their muscles.
Greater flow due to certain body components.

Finding True LoveI can't believe how I feel right now.
I feel as if everything has opened up before me.
It's as if I've been walking in the rain,
And never seen the stars.
Then suddenly, the storm breaks and the clouds open;
Not like the gentle dispersing of clouds,
But like a sudden skypunch to break the grey,
And the stars are the only light I can see;
An Apology From the SoulWhat began as lust, not love
was given higher meaning from above
And careful planning, not a chance
Is what set forth this circumstance
But things did not turn quite as planned
These things got too out of hand
For hearts are made as fickle things
Do not have the consistency that stone brings
And can be swayed to love or hate
And hate or love do complicate
They complicate the world of men
So wherefore is the answer then
Why did fate deem this so?
Will we ever truly know?
Are we the pawns of some sick game?
Or are our choices what's to blame?
Would you do them differently?
I can only speak for me.
And I forgive you for the past
In hopes to make the future last.
Could you afford the same for me?
Or hate me for eternity?
The EndThis is the end
Of thursday's child
Who's tender charms
Had once beguiled
Now by fire
Who has thus corrupted me
A scorpion's kiss
A wretchid fate
A lesson that was learned too late
Put to the sword
My flesh and blood
As we both lie in the mud
And a child
Set on the stone
Should she be made to live alone?
Thus the dagger
At her side
Found another place to hide
This is how the four all died.
For My WifeBeauty is in the eyes
Of the Beholder, so they say.
If that is so, I behold your beauty
Each and every day.
You're beautiful in more than looks,
But also in your ways.
The things you do,
The way you think,
And... most of the things you say.
So when you think you're ugly,
It makes me upset
So I thought I'd write this down for you
So you do not forget.
I married you because you're beautiful
Each and every way,
So I could behold that beauty
Each and every day.
A Lone and Bitter ManAnother river of your color
Flows across my chest.
Unwittingly, they try to beat you
Only second best.
I've tried to live
The wound I've dealt you
Down to no avail,
No matter how
Hard I try
To let you go, I fail.
This is not just
It is not right to lie
Not only to myself,
Also my ladies,
So I resign
my heart upon a shelf.
Until the day, I give it away
To whom it doth belong
Or die a lone and bitter man...
A RoseWould a rose, called not a rose
Be that as it were?
What name, then, exemplifies
all it has to offer?
Passion, Love, Beauty, but also Power
Are all traits afforded those named of this flower.
From black to white, from yellow to red,
Only a fool treads heedlessly this bed.
Her thorns doth prick who uses no care
And her petals caress he whom is gentle and fair.
She need not a hero, her courage so vast
You cannot destroy her, she grows back stronger than the past.
So I ask thee again, if a rose by other name,
Would be thus as marvelous? To that, I say nay.
The Fate of AllIn the year ten and twenty six
There was a man so pietous
And a brother, darkness lured
And both a trial had endured.
Though one was cursed and thus condemned
That he should always return again
And forty-two should be the mark
Of things unknown and in the dark
The other, then, was also blessed
Though by darkness's behest
That he should have what me most sought
If on his brother, pain he wrought
Time and time throughout the age
These two brothers would engage
In duels of the heart and soul
Until one was victor and one laid low
But still the promise could not keep
For the curse had rung so deep
The heart he sought could not be swayed
And brought us to where we are today
The end could be far, it could be near
That is known by no one here
The truest form is known to one
Hidden from the light of Sun
Of knowledge is a power great
Kept locked behind an unknown gate
And gatekeeper with key in hand
Stands vigilant and watches them
To see what outcome will befall
The fate of four; the fate of al
Rantings of the SoulI feel you when I close my eyes
I see you in me; through your lies
You're an angel of death, in snow and ice
I'm charmed of fire to give you life
And bring you to the world below
Just what you are I cannot know.
The demon rising in you now
Gives off an unearthly howl
That shakes a man's soul to the core
And leaves him broken evermore
Who tempts you with a bite; so sweet
Forbidden fruit you cannot eat
Lay it on the ground to rot
Shake off his promises of nought
They are but lies; a deceit
A villian only trust defeats
Your life was mine
Held in my hands
Those of a world weary man
Who lost one loved one from before
Could not bear the loss of more
And fled he did though his heart did ache
And hoped you'd undo his mistake
He hoped and prayed for your return
And prayers came true as friends did burn
To turn the hands of fate and time
Back to that day just after nine
Could it still have stayed the same
Ah fortuna vie Dias dae
Truth abashed a thousand years
Hidden by our earthly fears
