: AdvancedPlot Summary:
Five years ago, colossal monsters identified as Kaiju have risen from an interdimensional rift in a crevice beneath the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war that takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity's resources.
Following the first four Kaiju attacks in San Francisco, Manila, Cabo and Sydney, a conference between all leaders of the world was called. The meeting resulted in the idea of to combat the monsters, by designing a special type of weapon; massive mechs known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge (it was discovered during early trials that the mental strain of controlling a Jaeger alone would overwhelm a single pilot).
Only pilots that are ‘drift compatible’ will be able to operate a Jaeger together effectively. Drifting is a process that two Jaeger pilots undergo prior to synchronizing with the Jaeger itself. The process of Drifting is a type of mind-meld that requires the pilots to share memories, instinct and emotions. Drifting allows them to act as one and control the very movement of the Jaeger itself, one pilot controlling the "right hemisphere", the other the "left hemisphere". Whether two pilots are ‘drift compatible’ with one another, depends largely on their personal connection and their ability to work in sync with each other. Drift compatibility is potential that exists between two people, however, it is not predetermined by the relationship (or lack thereof) of the compatible persons.
The Pan Pacific Defense Corps was founded sometime later by the United Nations. The Defense Corps represents an international alliance of twenty-one countries across the Pacific Rim, bound together by the shared goal of containing, combating and eliminating the Kaiju with the Jaeger Program.
This year, a new group of trainee pilots (also called Rangers) are starting their training in the Tokyo Shatterdome, and must learn to work together with each other as well as finding their ‘other half’ for the drifting process if they ever hope to become a real Ranger.Details on any necessary information:
This is an AU that takes place in the Pacific Rim (2013 movie) universe. The characters are on their young adult age (20+) and have just been recruited into the pilot training program. They are ordinary humans, not senshi. This RP will explore their relationships with each other and how to create the most effective pairs in order to control the Jaegers and then eventually start fighting the Kaiju with the newly formed teams. It's mostly character study with some actions interspersed. Source
