Im looking for more of a 'war' of sorts, rather than a tournament. Was thinking more along the lines of a war between heaven and hell, demons vs angels, with a group of Neutrals out to either stop the war, or pick sides.
The Angelics are warriors of Heaven, created by god to watch over him while he slept, and to watch over the humans that reside below. However, as God rested, his right hand and left hand, Gabriel and Lucifer, came to a disagreement. Lucifer believed in the free will of the humans, and did not want to conform them to the beliefs of the Angelics, while Gabriel believed that all those who did not believe were as good as the dirt they were made from, and wished to destroy them to ensure a 'pure' race of devoted for when God reawakened. As their fight broke out, Lucifer and his group of ten fell from heaven, to be closer to the humans to defend them.
However, the humans saw the angelic without his wings and believed him to be a demon, from hell. So they denied his help, and shunned the army he had brought to defend them. With no humans to accept them, they were forced to seek shelter below the ground, where Satan came to Lucifer with an alliance. If he became the dealer for souls, then he would grant immunity to the fallen angelics. Lucifer agreed to the deal, throwing in his own terms that he be allowed to recycle souls that did not belong in neither hell nor heaven, holding their souls for a time before releasing them back to the earth the be reborn. With the deal sealed, Lucifer dealt with the returning souls while Gabriel planned his next move, training his army to fight for the next war, when Earth and Humans fates would be decided.
A group of Seven Neutrals were a part of recycled souls that helped Lucifer when the humans wanted to kill him, their powers limited, though they knew of their past lives to an extent. They alone held the power to defend against the Angelics, when their fires fell to destroy the man that god had created.
At least thats my idea, we could be part of the Neutrals, humans that are reawakened to know of the war coming, and have to find the rest of their group to reunite their powers and defend mankind...
