In this series, the player follows the number 019 player Rune as she and the other 31 players in the game do their best to survive a despicable death game within a city that gradually fills with water. Rune and the others do their best to figure out why she and a couple of other players have no memory of their pasts as they are double-crossed, and threatened by the ever-approaching want to win the game from the other players. Many players put themselves first, many players put others first, many players mind their own business.
This series was built on the fundamental principle of "I don't need to outrun the Hunters, I just need to outrun the other guy." With many twists and interesting plotlines, I can guarantee that the story will keep you on edge as you as the player get more and more attached to the characters you get to know. This series is an original concept death game that got its name from the Christian faith tradition known as Baptism which means to be submerged in water. Thus I felt the name for the series was quite fitting for this series.
This is quite an ambitious project and has a very large quantity of characters. Due to the formatting of the game and how it works, a large cast was needed for the game to work properly. Every chapter has 4 Baptisms, 4 Downtimes and if Rune is not selected to participate in the Baptism, you will have what we call Screentimes where the player will watch the proceedings in the arena.
Personality: Sayuri is nothing short of an opportunist. She is self-centered and only prioritizes el numero uno. She doesn't have the highest view of herself, but this doesn't mean she hates herself. She is extremely cocky and prideful in believing that the world needs to make up for its failures toward her. She believes that after years of hardship, pain, and suffering, the world owes something to her. She takes any opportunity she can get no matter the cost to other people. She cares about no one but herself.

They usually worry about themself and that's all. They are typically an easy person to talk to and it's very easy to have a conversation with them. They couldn't care less about winning the game, they just want to survive by making as few enemies as possible. They are peaceful and indifferent toward many petty rivalries and such. They will only get involved in things if they are forced to do so. They are possibly one of the more trustworthy members of the cast

0 "Ai Ikejiri. You seem like a cool person to be around. Laid-back and chill, kinda my style." (Calm, Chill).
1 "I'm just gonna do my best to stay impartial here. Should keep me outta trouble for the most part." (Confident, Impartial).
2 "Hey, hey let's not have any arguments here. Hansuke. Kosei. Both of you. Go cool off." (Calm, Collected).
Personality: Guto is a person who is solely focused on winning the game and gaining no personal attachments to anyone. Guto is disliked by pretty much everyone and pretty much dislikes everyone but he doesn't really care at all. He can grow a personal attachment but it truly does take a lot to do so. He is a very skilled player, easily the most naturally skilled competitor in the game. People tend to manipulate him to get him on their side due to his sheer power in combat as well as his survival skills. He is very quiet, not very talkative, and only speaks when he has to. He treats those who have treated him with kindness with respect and those who have treated him with betrayal and manipulation he repays their deeds a thousandfold.

1 "For the last time, I work alone. I don't want anything to do with your little faction." (Blunt, Annoyed).
2 "I'm not exactly the most trusted person around here. I'm a good player, sure. It's also a downside because no one trusts me. I work mostly alone anyways. No one really likes me. I just observe and study everything and everyone from a distance. It's what makes me a skilled player." (Confident, Blunt).
