How hard can it be? You have the organization trying to kill you sending whoever is closest to your current location and possibly they send 4 woman team to eradicate you on the double. Well... thats if you get caught or get detected for humans to notice right? I don't know how long it takes for an awakened being to freely change forms from their awakened body to their human looking ones but provided you mastered the phase change, how well do you think you can cope without being detected? Hmm well I don't know about you lot but if I awakened I'd be pretty damn hungry at first yeah? But question is why must I eat human guts? Why not other living organisms' guts? Where does the idea of eating human guts come from anyway?
I'm not sure if anyone else heard of the tale. So I looked into some backgrounds which tells a story about a 9 tailed fox. No not naruto actually this one is somewhat alot different than the chinese and japanese variation of the yokwe (Youkai..ultimately Youma? lol). Heres a link if you want to go read the article about it. Click ME!
So I'm hungry and I want to eat some human livers since it contains the process of turning food into energy and since I was more or less closely tied to humans thats the only equivalent way for me to get some nutrition out of it. That might explain or shed light on why Awakened Beings don't eat yoma guts. Human guts or more specificly human livers contain the energy of a human, meaning that it processes the food and gives energy, thus making it the container of the working force/life of a human. You were more or less a human in your past life before becoming halfling and then full youma but im sure your body's fundamental structure is alot like a human meaning human body parts and its functions should be closer to how my awakened body reacts. Hence only a human guts will do and a yoma guts is like already using up the life force. It's like telling a vampire to go suck on blood of another vampire for nourishment. They need red blood cells not from a host whose already using up all their red blood cells in their body. Much the same with Yoma so hmm it'd mean I have to go into town to get me some human corpses. One or two people going missing should be fine I'd think. But even then, missing people generally have a way of alerting the rest of the population especially in a small town. Now that I'm an awakened being... how should i go about in not getting detected while being able to feed whenever I like without raising OHHH AHHHH KYAHHH from the audience when they find the remains which stupid yomas do leave behind out of grim amusements which would get them killed eventually when people send out for a claymore.
After much thinking living in the mountains might not be a bad idea. Boring yes but still much safer than risking my neck for a feed. I'd feed on travellers and some outlaws living in the mountain side. But seriously speaking... living off rats wont make me full. Since outlaws tend to run out quickly and travellers stop using the same route when they keep hearing their buddies keep going missing. Back to square one and still the best source of food seriously seem like the most dangerous choice of all. A very big established city with alot of people. Actually I have a even better idea! I go to a big city and snuff out the most evil shady looking characters who owns the city night life and offer my service as a assassin or personal bodyguard for a price of one or two slave per day to be eaten up by me. Great bargain~! you kill one bird with a boulder! score! Kaiserin style.
And I begin to wonder how many actually used their brains and did this? Probably none although I think Isley had the brains to co-exist with humans to a degree while eating them on regular basis. Who knows, maybe he buys all the slaves as food stock for he and his men.
So as an awakened being. I should ideally try surviving in a big big town with alot of slaves being brought in. Use the slaves as a food source while keeping my hands off the normal residents so i dont raise an alarm. Perfect.
Well then, how would you survive if you were and Awakened Being?
