Akio

Akio Kongang

Akio was a rebellious and secretive scientist who revolutionized the study of medicine on Mofi and is a key historical figure when it comes to medicinal sciences.

Thanks to his groundbreaking studies, Akio successfully united the major schools of medicine some 720 years ago - leading to the cure of countless major illnesses including tuberculosis, multiple sclerosis and cancer.

Personal History

Uni Life

Akio was an aspiring scientist from a young age and came to study medicine at university. A distinction-grade student, Akio found the syllabus easy to learn and wanted to develop his knowledge further, so he began to dabble with new materials and experimented with untested theories from foreign schools of medicine.

As he progressed he started to produce simple cures and relief medicines for common ailments such as colds and headaches for his felllow peer group. The drugs worked surprisingly well and had little to no side effects, however word got out that Akio was experimenting with non-syllabus material and handing out homemade drugs - he was swiftly expelled.

Self Employment

Following his expulsion, Akio continued his self initiated studies and medical experiments in his home lab. His old friends still came to visit him for cheap and reliable healthcare and gradually word spread, leading Akio to supply the black market with safe, reliable and affordable medicines.

Rise to Fame

In his 40's, Akio's name became street slang for "safe drugs". Still his work was not strictly legal as his medicine had not been produced in a high quality lab and been tested for 10+ years and deemed Officially Safe for Human Consumption.

Eventually a well known TV show host approached Akio for something to cure his fibromyalgia (which was causing them great pain and was putting them at risk of losing their job). After a three month course of a new trial of medicine, Akio had cured them. The TV show host returned to their work and Akio became a national TV sensation!

The Final Cure

After his TV fame, Akio was granted an official inspection of his lab which was deemed to be of exceptional quality. He reconnected with his old university contacts (who had now graduated into the field of medical science) who helped him set up his own chemist shop.

Floppy Disk

The university was keen to learn his secrets now that he'd become famous, but Akio still felt very hurt after his expulsion and kept his notes on several large floppy disks.

As he became frail from a life of hard work, he wanted to make one last cure. Akio wanted to cure the rivalry between the schools of medicine, so before he died he set out plans to send off his entire life's work on separate high capacity floppy disks in separate sections to each country. The plan worked perfectly and they joined their efforts, shared their knowledge and furthered medicinal science which lead to the cure of countless major illnesses including tuberculosis, multiple sclerosis and cancer.


Akio is now regarded as a hugely influential historial figure and his lessons from 720 years ago are still remembered to this day all over the Kenjao System.

    Collaboration of Medical Sciences
    Scientific achievement

    Akio sent his discoveries on separate floppy disks to different medical schools across Mofi. No single one would make sense without the collaboration of the other schools. It was this act that caused the great collaborative work to begin and in turn lead to a future cure for cancer.

Beautiful art, as always!

Thank you! :D

The use/mention of floppy disks was a nice touch. Well done! Also, I wish Akio were real so I can have a safe drug to cure my Endometriosis. :3

I miss floppy disks! I think I might keep them. Maybe my world never invented CDs, they just made floppy disks way better with speed & capacity.

I'm loving where this world is going.

13 Mar, 2018 17:06

Thank you! :D I just need to get on and write more of it now!

Gosh darn it TJ, why do you have to make your articles like the worlds sweetest eye candy. I loved the conclusion and the sort of grey-area of his work! Very impressive.   The only feedback I have is that this dude wasn't exactly murdered.

Thank you for the feedback! I'm setting myself a new challenge with this world to make it a bit more PG-13, so assassination was out of the question I'm afraid! If there's a gruesome community event coming up soon I think I will have to use a different world ;)

One of the more interesting articles. I love the fact that his name was equal to the term for safe drugs. That's a very nice touch. The art is amazing, but you always do great work so I shouldn't be surprised. All and all, this was a great article!

17 Mar, 2018 10:47

Thank you for the feedback! :D

The layout for your articles is really great! Everything is presented very nicely!

17 Mar, 2018 10:48

Thanks so much! It takes such a long time to write what is quite a short article, but worth it in the end for a comment like this :D

17 Mar, 2018 08:36

Your art is sublime as always, and an interesting article!

17 Mar, 2018 10:48

Thanks for the feedback! It was fun to do more of a historical entry this time :)

I love the domestic approach you took when approaching this challenge. A lot of us did leaders and gods and you did something which is so much more relate-able. I really like it!

17 Mar, 2018 16:07

Thanks for the feedback! :D My world isn't hugely developed yet so it was quite a challenge to think of a new person who made a big impact. I didn't want to rush into politics and leaders at this stage so I thought about how someone could bring about a positive impact to the world after they died.

Really enjoyed the read and the theme of this article. Really well done! Something to aspire to!
