Gun God (銃神, Jū Shin?) or just GODO (ゴドー, Godō?), is the last unmodified human in the world of Notes.

Profile[]

History[]

Gun God was born on the "Western Continent" before the attacks by Type Jupiter started. The constant destruction cost him his family around the time he was twelve or thirteen.[2] He later dug up the Black Barrel,[3] not knowing of its destructive power against the Aristoteles, and started to learn to shoot in order to avenge his family.[1] He participated in "Bird Drop",[3] the interception mission against Type Venus,[4] and ended up as the last plane in the sky due to his AI pilot not being affected by the heat emanated from Type Venus. He managed to take aim and fire with the Black Barrel despite the harsh conditions, and hit Type Venus directly in the forehead, placing it into an eternal sleep. He then passed out thinking of its beauty.[5] This act gave him a reputation and the sarcastic nicknames "Gun God" and God Imitator (偽神, Nisegami?, Fake God), though he simply shrugged it off as luck.[6] However, his real name was erased.[4]

He moved to the city on Type-Venus's corpse four years later, and took up a job hunting twenty angels produced from the World Trees every day. He didn't make much money due to having to constantly buy more bullets.[7] He could be protected and taken care of as a rare species if he wished, but he would find that boring. He was also acquainted with an Angel A-Type, and they frequently had drinks together.[1] One year after moving to the city, he found a mysterious angel living in his apartment. He attempted to force her out, but soon gave up after attempting to kick her out a number of times, even going to the hospital to check if his brain didn't make him hallucinate her.[8] He was forced to start killing thirty angels a day to provide food for her, causing him to also enjoy it more as killing beings similar to her relieves him of stress.[7] At the same time, he ended up being more true to his feelings, and eventually fell in love with her.[9]

Type Saturn eventually started heading towards the city, causing the inhabitants to evacuate. The angel revealed that she was the humanoid manifestation of Type Venus to him, as he prepared to leave as well. He was enlisted for the battle against Type Saturn because of his reputation of killing Type Venus, and headed off to battle.[9] His plane ended up severely damaged, causing the AI to malfunction, leaving him rising towards the red sky where he had no chance of survival. He had one last conversation with his Angel acquaintance, who ended up injured on the plane, and asked that she leaves so that he could die alone.[6] His fate was left unknown until it was stated within the glossary that he died during the intercept mission against Type Saturn.[3]

Personality[]

Gun God lives out his daily life without much more than logical reasoning. He doesn't really feel happiness or pain, and has nothing fun in his past to recall. He feels that he hunts angels because he is "twisted", and his main motivation for fighting is revenge and not wanting to die. He states that the only reason he doesn't wish to die is that he has never had anything good in his life. When interacting with others, he really doesn't put much effort into conversation. He often attempted to force smiles, but never could accomplish one.[1] After meeting the Angel, he gains more peace of mind, though her existence also causes him a great deal of stress. He slowly becomes more open with his feelings, and even comes to love the city as he falls in love with her.[9] He becomes more prone to making jokes, even on the verge of death. He states that because he wished to be a hero as a child that he wants to look cool as one before his death, and manages to make the best forced smile of his life. While on his way to his death, a voice asks him why he wishes to live, and the answer end up being different than before.[6]

Abilities[]

Gun God is a normal human without any special abilities. He cannot eat any of the food produced for A-Rays and enhanced humans due to the nutrition value being so high that it is poisonous,[8][10] and he requires special medication in order to receive oxygen due to the Grain in the air.[7][4] He needs to use firearms in order to match the A-Rays, who rely only on their physical capabilities.[1] Though he is one of the weakest creatures on the planet, he is able to completely reverse that weakness thanks to the Black Barrel, also called Longinus, which he excavated from the sealed region of Atlasia. It is gun that is a "Conceptual Weapon of natural life-span", capable of imposing the notion of limited life-span into the body of near-immortal creatures. Composed of Fifth True Theoretical Element, bullets fired from the gun will disintegrate all instances of Grain and Ether they come into contact with, ignoring any parameters of beings that intake either substance to deliver direct damage.[4]

The greater the quantity of Grain, the more damage will be inflicted upon the enemy, and it is impossible to even hold it unless the body is free of such substances.[11] This makes it extremely effective in the Land of Steel, as only a few remaining lifeforms lack Grain, such as unmodified humans. Due to the Aristoteles possessing extremely large quantities of Grain, it is extremely effective against them, giving it the nickname of "a gun that kills gods." The gun, which is normally a rifle-type with a curving buttstock, is extremely versatile in that it can be refitted with a number of different options to allow for use as a sniper rifle.[4]

    Introduction - Godo

    His real name has been erased. Generally known as Gun God or God Imitator. One of the few old-generation “humans” surviving in this wasteland.

    Humans – strong as living creatures, yet weak as existences – were almost completely eliminated on doomsday. The survivors, being unable to adapt to the Grain permeating the atmosphere, were soon to follow.

    During these last days, the surviving humans created the artificial paradise.

    Although this artificial paradise was quickly destroyed by The Black Aristoteles, Godo was unlucky enough to receive environmental adaptation treatment, and thus his life was saved. He became the world’s last surviving human and continued to live.

    But, even if he was a survivor, his future was short.

    For Godo, his current life was akin to living on the moon. Without the help of machines and medicines, he would not even be able to breathe properly, and the food that he puts in his mouth is like poison.

    Because his prospects were so bleak, or perhaps because he had already faced death many times, his worldview became very self-torturing but not quite pessimistic (“resignation” could be a good way to describe it), and he lived leisurely passing by the days.

    In the past, wanting revenge, he excavated Black Barrel from the sealed region of Atlasia, and participated in the battle to prevent Type:Venus’ descent. Afterwards, in order to escape further conflicts, he concealed his whereabouts.

    According to rumors, he participated in a certain city’s fight to repel Type:Saturn, and died there.

    Although he is the weakest, he is a sniper able to withstand the poison of the strongest.

    Explanation - Black Barrel

    A black gun. It is a weapon that can destroy the Fifth Theoretical Element, and is constructed from the Fifth True Element.

    It is called a conceptual weapon of natural life by the Six Sisters.

    The bullets can ignore the abilities of anything that uses Grain and cause direct damage.

    It is similar to a cancer cell directly invading a body.

    One of the reasons that humans have degraded as is that they have no way to utilize the Grain in the air. As soon as they breathe it in, they die.

    The moment that this new energy source, Grain, rejected them, humans became the weakest of all life forms, but Black Barrel could be called the one weapon that reverses that specific weak point.

    It has many uses, and by changing its fittings it can be made to act as a sniper rifle.

    It normally takes the form of a rifle with a curved stock.

    At the time of its excavation, it seems that there was an original and also a replica. The gun that Godo always uses is the original.

    Source: notes. (From Tsukihime Dokuhon)

    The leading role of a story from the Land of Steel, an episode that cut out the events concerning an angel.

    As the weakest individual but possessing a means of deposing the strongest, a really protagonist-like individual.

    Afterwards, this person’s style was succeeded by Shiki from Tsukihime…maybe, or maybe not.

    Introduction - ゴドー
    本名。額飲、というのをいれる。院まいったいな時代の“人間”。
    生物としてあったが生命としては弱かった人間は世界各軍によって大部分が死滅し、残った者たちも大気に満ちたジンに適応できず死に絶えていった。
    そんな終末の中でも生き延びようとした人間たちによる人工楽園の出身。
    人工楽園自体は黒いアリストテレスによってすみやかに消滅したが、環境適応処置を受けていたゴドーは不運にも生き延び、地上に残った最後の人間として生きていく事になる。
    もっとも、生き残ったところで先は長くない。
    ゴドーにとって今の生活は月に住んでいるようなもの。機械と菜の助けがなくては満足に呼吸もできず、口にする食料は毒でしかない。
    まさにお先真っ暗ではあるが、幾度もの終末を乗り越えてしまった為か、自由的ではあるが悲観的にはならない、といった観(諦観とも言う)に至っているので日々のんびりと過ごしている。
    かつては復讐心から取アトラシアよりブラックバレルを発掘し、タイプ・ヴィーナス降下阻止作戦に参加、以後は戦いを避けて行方を貶ました。
    風の噂ではとある街で行われたタイプ・サターン迎撃戦に参加し、戦死したとされる。
    最弱ではあるが、最強の毒に耐えうる狙撃手。

    Explanation - ブラックバレル
    黒い銃身。第五架空要素を自壊させる、第五真説要素によって作られた兵器。
    六人姉妹たちには天存の概念武装と呼ばれる。
    この銃によって放たれた弾丸は、真エーテルによっ して活動するモノなら、いかなる能力値をも無視して を与える魔の一撃となる。
    直接本体に打ち込まれる細胞のようなものか。
    人間が霊長から転落した理由の一つに、大気に満ち たジンを扱えず、吸い込めば死に至るという事がある。
    ジンという新しいエネルギーに拒絶された時点で人間はもっとも弱い生物になったが、ブラックバレルはその欠点を逆転させた兵器と言える。
    汎用性が高く、各種オプションを換装する事で狙撃 銃としても使用可能。
    基本は曲銃床を用いるライフル型。
    発掘時にはオリジナルとレプリカの二丁があったらしい。ゴドーが愛用していたのはオリジナルの方。

    出典/notes. (月姫読本に収録)
    鋼の大地から、天使にまつわる話を切り取ったエピソードの主役。
    最弱だが最強を貶める一手を持つ、という実に主人公チックな人物。
    のちに、この芸風は月姫の志貴に受け継がれる事になった・・・・・・ような、そうでもないような。

  10. [v] Notes - Humans [Last-Seed]

    Humans [Last-Seed]
    Human species who hasn't received any modification, or their descendant. Since they are no longer able to survive on this planet, it is said that they are on the verge of extinction.
    In order for humans to live outside, they need support from medication or machines. They can't directly inhale the air, nor can they eat the food made in the factory because they raise the physical ability too much that they become poisonous.
    They are rare, but have no value.

    人間 [Last-Seed]
    品種改良を受けていない人間種。もしくは、その末裔。すでにこの惑星上では生存不可能な為、絶滅寸前といわれている。
    人間が外界で生存していくためには薬物や機械によるサポートが必要で、空気も素のままで吸引すれば死に至り、工場で作られる食物は身体能力を向上させすぎ、逆に毒となってしまう。
    希少種であるが、希少価値はない。

  11. [v] Notes - Black Barrel [Longinus]

    Black Barrel [Longinus]
    A black rifle that the Gun God uses. Created by a mineral that counters all Gin, it's a weapon that is feared by life forms that carry any slight amount of Gin.
    But because all living beings that exists in the world are affected by Gin, it is impossible for them use or even touch it.
    The God killer gun. If the target creature is stronger... in other words, the more Gin it carries, the more powerful the bullet becomes.
    ...Today, only the rare species that weren't able to evolve and doesn't carry any Gins can touch this gun.

    ブラック・バレル [Longinus]
    銃神が所有する黒い銃。全てのジンに相克する鉱物で作られており、ジンを微量でも含む生命体にとっては天敵ともいえる兵器。
    しかし世界に存在するあらゆる生命種はジンの影響を受けている為、これの使用はおろか触れる事さえ不可能となっている。
    神殺しの銃であり、攻撃対象になる生命種が強大な力…すなわちジンを含めば含むほど、その殺傷能力は飛躍していく。
    …今や希少種となった、ジンを含まず、進化に対応できなかった生命種のみが何の影響もなくこの銃に触れることができる。
