Digimon Seekers: Chapter 1-9

While we wait for Sunday’s chapter, I’ve decided to revise the Seekers story to fix some of the story’s awkwardness. I will keep the story the same but will try to make it sound nicer. This isn’t my story, so please make sure you check out the original chapter. Let me know if this is something worth continuing. Make sure you start at chapter 1-1

Eiji was tasked with infiltrating the Sons of Chaos in order to get close to their leader and uncover their motives. The Sons of Chaos is an organization full of the strongest code cracking teams with the worst intentions. There have been rumors that the Sons of Chaos are planning something big that could shift the balance between the Digital World and human society. Intelligence agencies and police units from all over the world have gotten involved in the investigation, but Ryusenji holds no faith in their motives. This is why he hired his own code-cracker, one that didn’t have to deal with the channels of bureaucracy. He hired Eiji to protect the Digital World and the Digimon living in it.

The job pays very well, but Eiji is moved by Ryusenji’s passion more than anything else. If Tartaros and their Sons of Chaos are allowed to cause havoc, the international community will view code crackers and the Digital World as dangerous. Digimon will be considered the enemy.

“The lives of Digimon will be at stake” Ryusenji’s words echo in Eiji’s head. “In the past, wolves were eradicated from Japan because of the perceived danger they proved to wildlife. Other animals have been made extinct for less. We must avoid this fate for Digimon.”

Eiji sits on the futon in his cramped apartment. “So I’m supposed to be a spy,” Eiji says looking down at the fluffy lump of fur in front of him. Loogamon is hololized and on its back, showing its belly. “We’ll be dealing with the Sons of Chaos. Those are some bad dudes Loogamon. They’re hardcore code crackers who are into some really scary stuff. My Tyrannomon don’t stand a chance against them, but you might be alright.” Loogamon is one of a kind, and although it is still growing, it is showing remarkable potential.

Eiji stretches out his hand to pet Loogamon, knowing he can’t actually touch it. Loogamon begins to growl at the sight, its teeth blaring viciously. “I guess I’m no good with dogs,” Eiji thinks as he remembers his childhood dog who hated him but loved his parents.

An alarm goes off.

“It’s time to go to work. Let’s go Loogamon.” Loogamon disappears into the Digimon Linker screen. With his headset on, Eiji leans against the wall and opens the Digimon Linker menu. The watch projects a virtual monitor in front of him.

Eiji connects to the network and logs into GriMM. Joining the Sons of Chaos isn’t a difficult task. Once you obtain the invitation code from their recruitment page, you join the official channel and apply like any other job. Eiji had already submitted his application and secured an interview.

“The Sons of Chaos deal with government agencies, corporations… important people with high-level security. We need highly skilled code crackers who aren’t afraid of anything. This is a risky job,” the voice on the other end of the headset explains. A senior member was conducting the interview. “It’s easy to apply, but it’s hard to get into the Sons of Chaos. Do you think you have what it takes, newbie?”

“It’s Fang”

“Code Cracker Fang, huh? Are you ready to earn your name and prove yourself?” Eiji looked at the hologram of a generic cartoon businessman staring back at him. His username reads “interviewer. His voice was gravelly and sweet, like an old man’s.

Eiji gets right to business. “Will I get to meet Tartarus?” Code crackers are generally frank with each other on the internet.

“You’re interested in our leader?” There is suspicion in the question.

“Who wouldn’t be?! He’s the legendary code cracker Tartarus!” Eiji tries to sound excited.

The interviewer laughs “How old are you kid?”

“That doesn’t matter. There’s no way of proving it anyways”

“I guess you’re right,” there is a brief pause before the interviewer continues, “Tartaros is a mystery, even to us. Most of us have never seen him. If you are as much of a genius as you say you are, one of the executives will reach out to you. If you get invited into one of their chats, you might be able to talk to Tartaros.”

Eiji knew his task wasn’t going to be easy, but he has a plan. He would take advantage of the organization’s meritocracy and climb up the organization. “So this job,” Eiji begins, “it’s like an employment exam?”

“That’s one way of looking at it. It’s a semi-A ranked mission…I’ve shared the details on Grimm for your reference. I’ve also opened a dedicated channel for the mission.” Eiji begins to read over the mission details. “What do you want to call the mission?”

Eiji thinks for a moment. “How about, Operation Wolf?” he asks, thinking about his Loogamon.

The interviewer goes silent as the name of the channel changes to Operation Wolf. “This isn’t going to be easy,” the interviewer explains “A Ranked missions aren’t for noobs. You are going to lose some Digimon, and we don’t insure Digimon or provide compensation for any losses. Is that understood?”

“I understand. I’ll be ready for my welcome party.”

“Welcome party?”

“We’re celebrating the birth of the newest executive.” The interviewer laughs. These were big words, but not unfounded. Eiji had a surprise in store. In order to infiltrate the organization, Eiji had to deactivate certain functions on his Digimon Linker. Ryusenji helped him with a special jailbreak that would improve his cracking abilities tenfold. With his special Digimon Linker and Loogamon, nothing was impossible.

“Please check the file for the mission details. Good luck, I’m praying for your success.”


The interview is over. Eiji sits alone in his room. He looks down at the Digimon Linker screen and finds Loogamon looking back at him. He sits in silence as the professor’s words echo in his head, “Digimon are alive!”

Eiji scrolls through the watch’s menu.


Eiji stares at the word as he takes a deep breath.

“Well then” Eiji presses the button and…
