‘Asimah, our guiding light during the darkness that is Daschiri's rule, is Aishiteru's protector. She is the mother of everything great and good in our world. We will follow the philosophies of love and equality she has set for us in hopes that one day, we too will soar like hawks. 

Rebellion Name: Snake Hunters

'Asimah

'Asimah is all seeing and knowing. She leads us into every battle under her protection, and we shall triumph because of it. Her grand wings allow her to soar like a hawk, and make prey of the snakes that rule Daschiri. She is a true warrior born from circumstances, and a caring protector for those who have been wronged. Within her is the power to detect corruption and eradicate it. We worship her as our goddess and leader, and look upon her as one would a mother. Acting as our light in the fog that is Daschiri, we shall escape the binds set upon us by the corrupt government. Evil will not prevail, for 'Asimah is immortal. May she watch over us forever.

The Story of 'Ashimah

Our great leader was born into a white family. Although of Arabian descent, she was still discriminated against for her skin color. The year she was born; one of the greatest wars of Daschiri took place. Her family, being of a fair skin tone, attempted to flee the unjust nation. Unfortunately, her family was caught. When police captured them, her mother and father were slaughtered in front of her and her 3 brothers. From the instant her mother's last gasp was taken, a deep hatred was placed inside of her for the “Holy” Nation. As she grew up, the hatred turned into a roaring flame filled with passion for change. She grew up in the care of her grandparents- devoted followers of the word of Great Master Aldwin. Soon, her brothers were brainwashed; seemingly forgetful that their parents died under the hand of the superior leader. She was always wary of the family she was placed under, out of fear that they might hand her over to the authorities for murder; or even worse, given to them and then taken to the ‘educational centers’. She ran away by the age of sixteen, and lived in the poorer parts of the state. She found books of religion in one of the destroyed flea markets and took them for her reading. Soon, she considered herself a follower of Muhsina (Goddess of Giving) and followed her words of wisdom with gratitude. On one particular night before the anniversary of Daschiri, Muhsina herself visited ‘Asimah. She granted her with the wings of a hawk to help her fight with justice against the rule of Daschiri. Because of this, ‘Asimah is immortal and shall never die. After this night, it seemed as though she never existed physically, for her documents and papers were missing; yet some say she is forever present. Under her guidance, one has no fears- even Daschiri. She helps the brave leaders of the rebellion fight and will one day be the leader to the new nation we wish to create from this turmoil.

Aishiteru National Anthem

    Free and true we stand, mighty heroes raised in war

Our bleeding hearts have paid the price, because they craved for more

The hand of the unjust had oppressed long enough

Aishiteru will come to power true and free of lies

But action must be taken for change to arise

We gave our lives to gain our rights, our nations glorious prize

Now we honor all those lost by sharing our warrior’s cries

    We will stand to guard our lives until we no longer can

Until we’ve won we will stand, every last man

Our courage has shown them that they can no longer control us

Aishiteru may come to power true and free of lies

Our country has prospered under the guidance of ‘asimah and now we will arise

We gave our lives to gain our rights, our nations glorious prize

Now we honor all those lost by sharing our warrior’s cries

    Our country is fair and safe for all

Our Justice has proven that evil will fall

Now our country and our people will live without a fear of thrall

Aishiteru has come to power true and free of lies

Whatever shall happen we have shown that truth will arise

We gave our lives to gain our nations glorious prize

Now we honor all those lost by sharing our warrior’s cries

Education Centers:
The Truth Behind Them

Few people have managed to escape unchanged from the “educational centers” enforced by the state of Daschiri. Under the premise that rebellious and incompetent citizens will be changed for the best, the vile snakes in our government have been robbing us of our children, our husbands, brothers, sisters, and anything in between.

Under the smokes and mirrors placed by officials, the rotten core of our society is on full display, and the horrors that are regularly practiced on its fair people come to light. It is because of those “education centers”, that we have become what we have: a country full of distrust, malice, and hate.

We, The Snake Hunters, have obtained data and the spoken testimony from survivors of the horrible ordeals that occur within the government buildings. We have once again been reminded of what we are fighting against, for we have come to realize what our brothers and sisters have endured. Daschiri is a land of evils, but none is worse than the so called “educational centers”.

Within these, hundreds of people can be held at once, and one can find himself imprisoned for absurd reasons, such as missing a day of the mandatory schooling. Despite Daschiri’s attempts to conceal the truth, today i bring you what they have been trying to hide!

Upon arrival, prisoners are subjected to an excruciating procedure called “rebirth”. There are many methods commonly practiced, but ,by far, the most common involves depriving an individual of sleep. They are placed with their hands over their head and their bodies twisted in order to ensure they unable to be comfortable. Any attempt to rest results in them being beaten or even drowned. Once they have entered a state of delirium, the next stage begins: light therapy. Prisoners are placed in a dark room where videos and pictures and periodically projected. Under the influence of sleep deprivation, the prisoners believe that the projections are real, and believe them to be memories! This stage can last anything from a few days to even months. It is not over until they discard their former selves, and embrace the beings forced upon them. Daschiri is continuously torturing its own people! It’s turning them into shells of their former selves, making them lose everything that made them human only to be replaced by a mindless robot!

Despite the horrors I speak of, they can be considered the lucky ones. People who don’t fall prey to “rebirth” must then endure ghost treatment. It pains me to speak of this, for I can only imagine the pain and terror these poor people have endured! For those too strong willed to give themselves up, hell awaits them! During the ghost treatment, our people are placed in solitary confinement within a completely dark room. They can not even see the ground before them!

They are denied contact with any other human beings, except for the men that beat them whenever they please! Can you imagine that? Can you imagine being so helpless? Being at the mercy of people you can’t even see? Enduring and waiting for hits that might never even come? Its a low level of torture that destroys an individual’s mind and body!

It is our children in those buildings! The educational centers are overcrowded with youths that did nothing to deserve what they have gotten! I pray to ‘Asimah that no one else must endure what so many have, but they do! As we speak, it is happening to someone! It is happening to our brothers and sisters in Daschiri! Our people are hurting! Our goddess weeps at the sight of what our country has become! We want change! We want equality! We want strenght!

Raise arms against the evil that is Daschiri and join the Snake Hunters!
