Echoes from the past: Digidestined Taiki


When Magnus Takariyama by chance arrived to reality 09, a Millennia before the appearance of google boy Tsurugi and his firneds. Clavis Angemon summoned Magnus to the Digiworld despite Magnus was supposed to have landed in the Digiworld from reality 12 and gave him the task of defeating a digimon called Quartzmon which arrived from nowhere and was attempting to take possession of

Several digidestineds that were summoned before the lad ended all failing to accomplish the mission and became preys of Quartzmon themselves!

One of the captive digidestineds  was Taiki Tatsuno. The local google boy  from the Taishō period. He´s 13 but ´s constantly confused as a primary school student instead of his middle school status. He´s often called shortie due to his height which he HATES more than anything and because of such he drinks gallons of milk everyday (let´s not count the times he got diarrhea!) His an avid fan of Jules Vernes and Robert Louis Stevenson books and he always dreamed of taking part of incredible adventures, just like in their books. Collecting clocks is his hobby and when he´s not daydreaming he usually ´s locked in his room, busy with his work-in-progress devices because he also dreams to become an inventor.

One day he and some of his classmates were suddenly transported to another world. The pendant watch he´s been working on was immediately turned into something called Digivice. After the initial shock he was delighted to learn that he had an hagurumon as his partner.
Because of his sparkly personality , easy understanding about the Digiworld´s ways and having mastered the uses of his digivice before everybody else he was appointed as the  leader. “All of that and because of your weird googles” his teammates declared. Not everybody in the group agreed on that , Haruki Kuremi (future Keruta and Kyoko Kuremi´s reality 09 male counterpart) never liked the fact that the youngest kid of the group was granted the title when HE was WAY much suitable for the role! The latter´s jealousy  ended bringing misfortune over the entire group when they eventually failed to defeat Quartzmon.

Quartzmon kept them trapped for such a long time and was about to consume Yggdrasil´s Core that Clavis Angemon, the closest angel to the Computer Host at that time, had no choice but to summon another digidestined in order to free them and finish the job. Hence Magnus Takariyama from reality 012 was brought to the Digiworld from reality 09…

Magnus´s unexpected death and Akarimon´s grief brought a huge impact in Taiki´s heart. While he felt guilty  for not being there when it happened he swore not to forget their rescuers´s actions and everything they learned from him.

When it was time to go back home Taiki declared: WE´LL NEVER FORGET.

Akarimon, despite the grief, assumed her new role as Yggdrasil´s closest guardian in Clavis Angemon´s name (who also passed away) and sent the digidestineds back home. The Digiworld was in peace again and it lasted for almost a millennia so the Taisho Era digidestineds were never summoned again…

Taiki grew up, went ahead with his life and formed a family of his own. When Tsurgi  was born, he had the feeling that he would become the next tamer. He chose not to tell him anything about his time as a digidestined because he wanted the kid to enjoy his upcoming times as a digidestined without any sort of expectations. Tsurugi shoulld had it his way without any warnings…that way would be much exciting!

His hagurumon is still waiting for his digidestined and when Lucemon´s actions messed up the realities, the 90 year old Taiki will may be granted a chance to meet with his digimon once again…
