Story: show
Welcome to Neon city, the technology and business capital of the world. The year is 2063 and the gap between the rich and the poor has increased tenfold. Regular folk felt abandoned by the government and took to fixing this problem into their own hands. Various small organized crime groups started to pop up one by one with the same goal, steal from the rich and give back to the poor. This became much more difficult when banks started to rid of physical currency and stick to purely digital transactions. That didn't stop these crime groups from finding other ways to steal. Most groups hacked their way in while others planned clever identity theft schemes. Either way, money was slowly but surely being taken from the rich and being given back to the people.

With the steady rise in crime, the demand of law enforcement skyrocketed. Automated guards on top of police patrols meant getting into localized bank terminals and private banking computers was a true challenge. To make things even more difficult, new firewalls and digital security systems were being created almost daily. Many small criminal groups started to team up to gain power in numbers. Eventually through much convincing, the three major gangs in Neon City, The Prodigal Sons, Trojans, and Shell, joined together under one name and one goal. They became one large group called Hood, named after Robin Hood.

Hood does what they can, controlling many of the poorer areas or the cities, but rich business men despise them, seeing them only as thieves and crooks. Many companies started to invest more and more into security and law enforcement, making the streets of Neon under surveillance 24/7. Eventually mega-weapons manufacturer Aegis decided to capitalize on Neon's situation and directly support the local police force to combat Hood, branding the department under their name.

Just as tensions started to rise between Hood and Aegis, one of Aegis's factories was targeted by a bombing. Initially everyone jumped to conclusions that Hood set up the bomb, but before any actions took place, a group called The Jade Dragons took responsibility in order to send a message. The Dragons wish for Earth's nature to be restored, and their solution as they see it is to tear down buildings and factories, just like forests were once torn down. They also strongly oppose cybernetic implants, stating it is unnatural and wrong for humans to modify their body as so. Several people have been targeted by them just because of their augmentations.

With all three sides ready to make their next move, some people predict an all out war will break out. Three sides are ready to fight for three causes, one for the city, one for the people, and one for the planet.


Summary
Three major groups fight for control of Neon city; Hood, the criminals who steal from the rich and give to the poor; Aegis, the police who wish to return order and rid of crime; and Jade Dragons, the activists who want to rid of cities and see nature once more.

Character Sheet
Username:
Name: (Characters can chose to hide their real name, as identity theft is a popular crime)
Gender:
Age: (Absolute minimum age is 19. If it wasn't obvious, the younger you are, the less experienced you are in general. No child prodigies.)
Faction: (Aegis, Hood, Jade Dragons, or none of the above. If none, please specify why.)
Appearance: (Aegis members, follow the uniform based on your position for on duty clothes. Chose whatever else you want for casual wear.)
Talents: (Does your character excel at simply shooting people? Or are they a talented computer hacker? Explain what and why here.)
Personality: (Has no correlation to what faction you are a part of.)
Equipment: (What your character takes with him/her during tasks. Aegis members have standardized equipment. Hood equipment is much more varied as it is more difficult for them to obtain high quality weapons. Hood weapons are either stolen, illegally bought, or custom built. Jade Dragon equipment is more basic, from IEDs and more of today's technology. Any sort of robotic implants are to be listed here. It is more likely for the rich to have implants as it is difficult and expensive to obtain them illegally. Jade Dragon members can't have implants due to their beliefs.)
Background: (Straightforward. Your character doesn't have to come from Neon city. They could start on one side, then defect to the other.)

Factions Information

Original Big Three
The Prodigal Sons: The Prodigal Sons controlled much of Neon City's Black Market. They view themselves as a business instead of a crime group. They smuggle mostly illegal substances and distribute them. Before coming together with Hood, the Prodigal Sons almost saw major businesses as competitors as they dealt with significant amount of money. Now as a part of Hood, they often cover money distribution while still running their smuggling business. Despite their gang name, they are very smart with their money and spending.

Trojans: Trojans are named after the Trojan virus. Their specialty is hacking into large systems. Before joining Hood, they mostly stole information on private operations and anti hacking plans to better prepare themselves. Now as a part of Hood, they hack mostly into banks, particularly private accounts of upper class members. Despite the hacker stereotypes, they are not all skinny nerds. Many of them are capable of defending themselves with a gun and are physically capable. Several Trojan members who have been caught in the past have been hired by the police as an alternative to being arrested. The police feels their skills will benefit them the force. Some Trojan members only join because they enjoy the challenge of hacking, and wish no harm to anyone. These people in particular are fond of joining the police instead of going to prison.

Shell: Much The Prodigal Sons and Trojans had their own areas of expertise, Shell focused mainly on illegal weapons distribution. Shell would often steal from police patrols, taking their equipment, disabling any tracking devices, and sell them off to other gangs. While this was one way of getting weapons, they particularly excel at making their own weapons. From improvised firearms to various armors, Shell could, and would make it. They are good with technology modifications in general, although they are not capable of cybernetics, as that is a completely different subject altogether. Some examples of their homemade weapons include a glove that discharges a large amount of energy when used in a punch, a remote explosive that can be controlled by a remote control helicopter and goggle lasers, yes, goggle lasers.

Hood
Hood has brought together a majority of organized crime gangs under one goal, take from the rich and give back to the people. They target the major greedy CEOs of large companies, planning large heists on their private bank terminals. Most of these are heavily guarded, so the versatility of Hood members ranges greatly. Many members of Hood now were never a part of one of the big three gangs before the formation, as many found out about Hood their own way and joined because they loved their cause. Since Hood is composed of amateur criminals, many newer members have little to no training while the more veteran members have only on the job experience as training. Currently they reside in the lower end of Neon City.

Aegis
Mega weapons company Aegis currently controls the Neon City police force, as well as providing equipment for officers and guards for private bank terminals. The Aegis headquarters sits near the center of the city while other smaller buildings are scattered throughout, specifically the financial district and the upper class housing area. Most members are a part of a standard patrol, patrolling the streets for suspicious activity. Other positions include elite guards and emergency response groups. Aegis members do get paid well as well as being in high demand, making the job appealing to many middle class civilians. Currently the force is distributed fairly evenly throughout downtown core of the city.

Jade Dragons
Environmental extremist group the Jade Dragons is composed of people who felt there was nothing being done to restore the planet to it's natural state. Their solution to this problem finally came to violence, targeting large industrial buildings with explosives. While they are the smallest of the three main factions, they are steadily growing in numbers, becoming more and more of a factor. In order to become a member of the Jade Dragons, you must deny any use of major technologies. They reside on the outskirts of the city near the waterfront where there still is a forest. It is rumored that their main base is right in the center of it, but no one has been able to confirm this. Since they willing deprive themselves of most technology, they rely on their cunning and knowledge of the area when in combat. They still use various guns, stolen guns albeit, to give themselves a fighting change and all their explosives are improvised. Currently they control most of the undeveloped areas of the city.

Accepted Characters

Hood
Kiki-Jenny: show
Username:Kiki
Name: Jennifer "Jenny" Christina Fordson (Known amongst the ranks as JC)
Gender: Female
Age: 23
Faction: Hood - Shell
Appearance: JC is roughly 5"6, and is slim though her arms are fairly toned because of her work. Her skin is tanned, and her arms are usually splotched with car oil and grease. Hair eyes are wide and have a lively glint: being hazel; mostly brown with flecks of green and gold, though they turn electric blue when she's activated the neural implant. Her mouth is usually in a sarcastic, though well meaning, grin, with thin pale lips. JC's hair is long and brown, almost always kept in a ponytail, with her bangs pulled diagonally across her forehead and tucked behind her left ear.
She often wears a dark green hoodie, (usually rolled up her forearms), and faded dark grey baggy jeans held up by a checkered black and white belt and tucked into black scuffed army boots. Around her neck hang a pair of worn dark-lens goggles and she wears open-fingered gloves each with a metal ring built into the palm. Behind her right ear is a small tattoo of a key, though it often goes unnoticed and on her ears are plain studded earrings. Overall, she gives off a tomboy-ish vibe.
Talents: JC is a talented mechanic and electrical technician. She has an extensive knowledge of vehicles and has created various gadgets. This has been learned through classes in school, though most her knowledge has come through her own experimentation.
Personality: JC is a lively and fun-loving girl. Always quick to jump in on an adventure, she often leaps without taking a second to think of the consequences. JC is inquisitive, and creative, spending days in the garage putting together strange objects she found to invent new things; this is one of the few moments that you'll find a completely different, more quiet, side to JC. She considers herself one of the guys; capable of keeping up with their pranks and quick to tease her pals. Above all though, she absolutely admires her older brother Jonny.
Equipment:
Polarizer - Originally, these gloves were designed to help JC hold onto her tools while she worked in more compromising positions, however she soon found that she could amplify the effects of the magnets in her glove allowing her to release magnetic pulses of attracting or repulsing.
Occipital neural implant - Allows her eyes to see in telescopic, and infrared vision.
Wrench, Screwdriver, and Pliers - Tools she ALWAYS has on hand.
Background: JC's birth came with complications; her occipital lobe had failed to develop as it should have during her gestation. In normal circumstances, it would have meant she'd be blind, however with the advancements in medical technology, they were able to fix her. Unfortunately for the Fordsons, they were unable to afford such a procedure, though they were provided the opportunity to have a new (read: experimental) neural implant which enhanced vision. The surgery was a success, and the baby girl could see, though she also had an extreme aversion to bright lights; being exposed to them caused her to have crippling migraines. It was eventually revealed that the implants were capable of also seeing in infrared and through certain materials.

Aside from her turbulent toddler hood, JC's life was fairly simple. Her parents worked hard trying to make ends meet. Her father would disappear for days on end as he went away to work in factories, mines, and ships, while her mother would leave early in the mornings and arrive late at night. It was her brother Jonathan who raised her, being only 4 years older than his sister, and they formed a close bond. By the time she was 14 though, Jonathan had grown more distant; he came home late at night, often with bruises and locked himself in his room for extended periods of time. His mother worried, knowing he had taken up with the "wrong crowd", but Jonny refused to stop what he was doing and he revealed little, even to his sister.

In school, JC had excelled in mechanics, and would've fancied being one professionally, but she did not have the funds to join an apprenticeship program. Having completed school, there was not much for her to do besides somehow manage to scrape up a dead end job. Her brother, suddenly began to take an interest in her life again, urging her to experiment and tinker with things that he brought home from his "excursions". It was clear that his intentions were to induct his sister into his secret pastime, it was something that she had internally always wanted. In due time, he presented Jenny and her inventions to The Hood, proving that his sister would be a valuable asset to the cause. They accepted.


Kiki-Jonny: show
Username: Kiki
Name: Jonathan "Jonny" Samuel Fordson
Gender: Male
Age: 27
Faction: Hood
Appearance: Standing roughly at 6 feet (more or less), Jonny has a physically fit swimmer's build and tanned skin. His eyes are light brown and friendly, and the crows feet around his eyes imply that he laughs a lot. His hair is light brown like his sister's and cut short, pulled into a sharp faux-hawk.
He often wears a muscle defining pale blue t-shirt with a black leather jacket, fitted navy blue jeans and black sneakers. Behind his right ear is a tattoo of a small lock. Over his eyes he wears a pair of regular sunglasses while outdoors, or using the Cy-Five. He takes pride in his appearance, and is well aware of his natural good lucks, using it to his advantage as necessary.
Talents: Jonny is an exceptional practitioner of parkour; his body is lithe and agile, though he is also a competent hand-to-hand fighter. His will is also notably formidable, pushing himself on by sheer will alone to go beyond his limits. He is also fairly charming and likeable person, able to talk himself out of problematic situations.
Personality: Jonny is lighthearted and a dreamer. A smooth talking breath of fresh air, though also a mischievous and moderately narcissistic pal. He's the type of person to make friends wherever he goes, and try as you may, it is difficult to dislike him. He has a righteous desire to help right the wrongs of society by working with Hood and strongly believes in their ideals. He has a strong bond with his younger sister, though he is also fairly protective, if not overprotective, of her as well. He lives for his friends, his family, and the downtrodden of society.
Equipment:
Stun-Staff - A weapon devised by his sister, the stun-staff is a pocket-sized cylinder that expands with the push of a button into a long pole, a mechanical rather than electronic process. The pole can then be activated to run a current of electricity through it stunning those it comes into contact.
Semi-Automatic Pistol - A regular semi-automatic pistol that Jonny has legally obtained...with money earned under Hood. Is it under his own name? Nope.
The Claw - Appearing as a functional wrist watch, the claw is a device that doubles as a grappling hook or trip wire.
Cy-Five - A prototype device his sister is having Jonny test out. It is a device worn on the tip of each finger that allows one to seamlessly gain access to an electrical interface. The information is processed and dealt with by the sunglasses he wears which act as computer monitors when in use.
Background: The first child of Stan and Lacey Fordson, Jonny's life was fairly uneventful. Once upon a time his great grandparents had been middle class, though they soon succumbed to the class divide and fell into poverty. At the age of 4, Jonny's sister Jenny was born, her birth was wrought with complications but he loved his new sibling dearly. As his parents were often away at work it was up to him to raise his little sister and he did so to the best of his abilities.

At the age of 18, post-graduation, Jonny had to figure out what to do with his life. He couldn't afford to go to any sort of university, so he looked for jobs among the slums, anything to help support his family. It was on one of his job-searching runs that he came upon an altercation between Aegis troops and a small group of what he believed to be civilians. Knowing his home turf fairly well, he signalled to the civilians and they managed to evade the Aegis officers. It was then that they revealed to him that they were in fact members of Hood, and that he had put himself in danger by helping them. Sure, he had heard whispers of the group while in high school, but he had thought them to be a rumour, some sort of hopeful fabrication. He had never dreamed of joining the group, but he offered his services, he knew the streets, and he was strong. These Hood members were grateful for his help, so they allowed him to join, and he never looked back.


Jack-Terrell: show
Username: Jack
Name: Terrell Morrow
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Faction: Hood
Appearance: Terrell is around 6 feet and not too large, he has a well toned white skinned body that shows he works on it to some degree. He has a rather handsome appearance and usually tries to maintain his appearance. His hair is often slicked back though on a bad day it has no form. His eyes are grey and give off a menacing appearance and he has no visible facial hair. His attire is typically a black T-shirt with a red leather jacket on top and he normally wears black jeans and red sneakers. His arms are tattooed with a pattern from his shoulders down to his elbows.
Talents: Terrell is skilled with his weapon. He has some skill in hand to hand combat though it is not great. He is mostly athletic and a fast runner.
Personality: Terrell is a very calm and laid back person. He can be friendly with mostly everyone but he will treat others as they treat him, so he can definitely be a very rude person. He shows a strong sense of selflessness and puts others above himself, willing to die to protect a fellow comrade.
Equipment: Knife- Just a regular knife.
Automatic Pistol- Legally obtained with money.
Katana- Handed down to him by his father, he usually keeps it sheathed on his back.
Background: Terrell had grown up in the lower class area of the city. For living in a poor family, Terrell had a decent childhood though as he aged he grew very resentful of the rich and how no efforts were made to assist the poor. Eventually, around the age of 18 he left his home and wandered around seeking job opportunities, he got into fighting for money but it was not the best of decisions. Eventually, he grew to be friends with a fighter who happened to be a Hood member. Terrell was introduced in time and ended up adoring Hood, he sought to join and he was accepted.


Terra-Kenneth: show
Username: Terra
Name: Kenneth Cartwright(nicknamed KC)
Gender: Male
Age: 24.
Faction: Hood.
Appearance: Kenneth is highly unassuming, wearing basic clothing: a simple colored T-shirt and a pair of worn jeans. He is fairly tall, standing at about 6 feet, but slouches lazily. He has black, glazed-over eyes and slightly tanned skin. He always looks to the sky, as if dreaming of something.
Talents: An idealist at heart, Kenneth excels at thinking: mainly the philosophical kind, but also receives random bursts of insight at points, due to his eternally dreaming nature. Although not talented physically, he makes up for that shortcoming by being an above-average liar and orator, as well as being able to wield a simple knife to some extent(human who has trained for a year or so equivalent).
Personality: At first glance he looks like a stereotypical dreamer: eternally dreaming, passionate about what he does and has something to work for. They'd be right, except he's has a mild form of the superiority complex, believing that people spend too little time thinking. However, he is fairly good at pulling off the look of a dreamer.
Equipment: Carries almost nothing with him except a simple knife.
Background: Kenneth never had an easy life, though he was born in the hart of Neon City. The idealistic nature of his thoughts made it nigh-impossible for his fairly affluent parents to appreciate his insight. For many years he disappointed his parents, showing absolutely no interest in either their corporation or their ideal choice of job for him: a politician.
Kenneth hated corruption with a passion. He hated how kids richer than him got away with bullying him at a private school, and knew he couldn't do anything to stop them, being physically weak as well as poorer.
As he got older, he soon got interested in the gangs of the city as he began studying English at a nearby university. At first he treated them with nothing less than disdain, thinking they were purely for the sake of selfishness, but soon discovered what the Hood was truly working for: justice and equality for the poor.
He quickly got himself a job working as an English teacher for a nearby public school, while taking it upon himself to contact the Hood, confident that even with his affluent heritage, they would accept him for his goals and motives: for the people, as he would call it. They took him in.


Deciton-Samantha: show
There is a made-up sickness that this character has that you might wish to look at before the character itself that can be located at the bottom of this post under Other.
Username: Deciton_Reven
Name: Samantha Dryson, known to some of the older members as "Angel"
Gender: Female
Age: 29
Faction: Hood
Appearance: Like the anyone else that suffers from Phalmere's Disease, Samantha has pale skin, and all but a few strands of her long hair, that should be black, are instead silvery-grey. Of course her green eyes are mostly colorless as well, however her attractive and expressive face prevents her from having a hollow look. Samantha has a tall and slender frame that is well toned. Her nails are always cut short and are almost never painted, the same applies to her face. She is typically dressed in a vertically striped charcoal-and-black turtle neck, a pair of dark khakis, and a pair of blue pumps.
Talents: Samantha is crazy limber, like ninja level limber, but most of her talent lies in her brains. She put herself through Pharmaceutical school, which, in the Hood, quickly evolved into her becoming a makeshift doctor. When she digs out a bullet, sets an arm, checks for a concussion, etc. she can at least do it without making it worse. She can mix drinks well, and do all the neat spins and throws that go with it, and not only with bottles of alcohol.
Personality: Samantha is both emotional and smart, which is a deadly combination. She is always trying to help people, often in walk-and-talk advice sessions, as she always seems busy or going somewhere. She adores children, but has never tried to have any of her own for obvious reasons. She can be viscous if needed, but she is truly a gentle soul, and if a fight would be pointless, she would probably just give up. She's known for reciting various things to herself, from nursery rhymes to complex mathematical formulas, when she's not talking with someone else.
Background: Samantha was born to an upper-middle class family, however, when the hospital informed her father of the disease she had, he basically decided to forgo doing anything for her beyond basic care, as the only suppressant for the disease, Phomatren, was quite costly, and setting up things like a college fund would 'just be a waste'. Her mother on the other hand reflected the kind person that Samantha's father was, and it was her that did the little things like buy Samantha toys and helped her study for tests.

In high school is when Samantha decided that it would have to be her that made a cure for Slipstream, since everyone else seemed to be content with the suppressant of slowly withering away. It was then she stopped dyeing her hair black and started wearing her 'old lady hair' with pride. After high school Samantha soon found that her college education was going to be a challenge and she would need a job to support herself. She also found out that men were particularly attracted to cute young girls with silvery hair and blank eyes, and got a job at a strip club under the stage name 'Angel Threads'. It was here that she began making her first contacts in Hood (or the groups that would become Hood). In discovering her goals, Samantha was slowly sucked into the gang, and now splits her time between research, patching up wounds, and volunteering at a free youth clinic. Once it was planned for her to help with a heist as a decoy, but that mission didn't take place, she is still willing if needed, though.
Equipment:
Medical Bag: A collect of miscellaneous medical supplies that reside in a hip bag. Notable items include, a pair of surgical knives, bandages, pain killers, a lighter, a flask of whiskey, and needle and thread. Obviously other supplies are there too, just less used.
Chloroform and Rag: Loth to harming any one, Chloroform can take someone out without much harm.
Sidearm: A small pistol designed with the self defense of the average woman in mind. Due to the design being small enough to fit in a purse, it lacks punch and has a small clip. Samantha actually owns this gun and has a carry permit for it.

Other: Pholmere's Disease, known to most as Slipstream, is a birth deflect that acts like a slow acting virus (or infection, IDK which one right now), and seems to have no markers to be able to identify whether or not a child can inherit it, however it is easy to identify whether or not a child has it after birth, due to it's one physical symptom. Slipstream attacks and destroys pigment producing cells in the womb, causing a child born with it to be very pale and to lack color in their hair and eyes. The more serious symptoms begin in the late teens, were the Sickness begins it's assault on the brain, causing difficulties with memory, and sometimes more severe problems, then evolves in the mid-20s and starts attacking the muscles causing them to weaken, and causing tremors in them. Finally in the early 30s it begins it's final assault against the major organs, such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. The nickname 'Slipstream' was given to the Disease on the streets due to it making people seem to age very fast. All the stages have ways to combat, but only the drug, Phomatren, can halt the advance, and even it can only do so for so long. Some believe that this is nature's way of punishing the human race for going against it.


Jin-Lincoln: show
Username: Jin
Name: Lincoln "Flower" Keaton
Gender: Male
Age: 25
Faction: Hood
Appearance: Lincoln is of average height and build with very good posture. His dark brown hair remains short on the sides and and back, and falls just on his forehead. He is normally seen wearing a light gray long sleeve tee shirt when inside. His black jeans are tucked into some dark brown combat boots. When going out, he puts on a dark brown cropped trench coat with the collar usually put up and a black scarf. When on a mission, he uses the scarf to cover the lower half of his face.
Talents: Lincoln is a skilled technician, with a passion for hovercycles. He tries to transfer his knowledge of vehicles to other pieces of technology, slowly learning how to build his own automated robots. He is also learning how to modify firearms and eventually wants to learn to build some from scratch. His shot isn't too bad either.
Personality: Lincoln believes that he will never stop learning. He is very willing to learn new things, keeping himself quiet while a teacher speaks. He's not afraid of messing up because he knows he can learn from his mistakes. When it's a matter of life and death, Lincoln is able to keep himself calm and think things through, often going to completely silent. Despite his quiet nature, he's not afraid to smile when speaking with others.
Equipment:
Modified Aegis Sub-machineguns: Lincoln scavenged a pair of standard issue Aegis sub-machineguns which he modified himself to be collapsible. He names them "Stem" and "Bloom", playing with his nickname.
Multi-purpose Mechanical Tool: A little box that fits into the palm of your hand. It contains various screwdriver heads, a soldering iron, and a mini arc welder. It's used for quick modifications and can be used as a melee weapon if needed.
"Junkyard": Lincoln's salvaged bike. It's not very fast, but it works. Made of various scrap bits he found and threw together, he treasures it as it is his first hovercycle.
Background: Lincoln grew up with his parents, working in their little flower shop. It's because of this he earned the nickname "Flower Boy" from his schoolmates. Originally he hated it and got bullied by it, but then learned to accept it. After school, he would spend time working the counter in the shop. Business was very slow in the shop, but steady enough since how much of a niche market flowers are. Lincoln always spoke to his customers with a welcoming tone, eventually getting to know the regulars. There was a particular group of men who would come in normally and were friends with his father. Often, they would go to the back room and finish speaking in there. He became friends with all of them, greeting them, telling them if his dad was in, and letting them go ahead to the back room. At the age of 13, Mr. Keaton finally decided to tell Lincoln who those guys were and what they did. His father was a member of Shell, helping build equipment while using the flower shop as a cover up. His main priority was to maintenance vehicle parts. Lincoln started to learn from his father with open ears, and eventually knew how to fix almost any vehicle with the right parts. With this new-found hobby, he decided to pursue an education in mechanical engineering.

After completing his education, Lincoln returned to work at the flower shop while helping out his father and Shell, now a part of Hood. He planned on saving up money to buy his own hovercycle, but just couldn't manage to afford it. Scavenging for parts, he found enough scraps to make a barely working hovercycle. It was pretty bad, but it was his first. One day, one of his father's friends came into the shop and saw his cycle. Admiring Lincoln's creation, the man asked him if he wanted to join Hood, stating their cause. This man was none other than Kellan Lewis. Feeling honored, he joined Hood. Kellan gave Lincoln a new nickname, dropping the "boy" and just leaving "Flower" feeling he was "no longer a boy. He's a man now". Lincoln, despite secretly wanting this nickname to go away, was ok with this. The name happened to suit him well, as people described when he fires his guns, it's just like watching the petals of a flower bloom.

Aegis
KP-Jack: show
Username: Kittenpuncher
Name: Jack Hanson
Gender: Male
Age: 33
Faction: Aegis, Emergency Response
Appearance: Standing at 6 foot 7 inches and weighing 240 pounds, Jack is quite the imposing figure. His Caucasian body is mainly muscle with very little fat. Due to rarely seeing the light of day without his uniform, his skin is quite pale. His eyes are brown, as well as his hair, which is so short he's nearly bald. His chiseled, authoritative facial features are always kept clean shaven.
When called out he dons his standard Emergency Response field jacket, pants, boots, and goggles and mask. He keeps them all in pristine condition. Off duty, he dresses in simple tan cargo pants and t-shirts, and usually wears a pair of sunglasses and leather boots.
Talents: An expert at what he does, Jack is trained to handle all sorts of weapons with incredible precision. Years of experience have given him a thorough understanding of the tactics, weapons, and equipment The Hood and Jade Dragons employ. He can deal with citizens and computers effectively and gather information quickly. Hanson is a master of keeping law and order.
Personality: Seemingly Coldhearted, Ice-veined, ruthlessly efficient, and calmly calculating. Jack tries to punish those who break the law to the fullest extent he can get away with, thinking of them as wretched and evil to the core. Every time he kills a criminal, he feels as though he's just made the world a better place, and chasing that sense of satisfaction is what keeps him going no matter what the obstacle. Of course, he follows every order he's given down to the letter.
Equipment: Aegis Assault Rifle V4- A semi-automatic assault rifle effective up to 900 meters. A scope is generally attached to the top to make the most use of the incredible range of this weapon. The stopping power is considerable even without armor piercing rounds. Generally he carries the standard lethal suppression kit; five standard round clips of 30 each, along with 2 30-round armor piercing clips.
Aegis "Pulverizer" Police Pistol A short range pistol that packs an enormous punch. Usually issued alongside 3 15-round clips. Can be used with a silencer for quiet firing, as it is normally pretty loud.
Standard Knife
EMP Grenades Jack's grenades of choice, allowing him to disable any electrical equipment and systems that give him trouble during operations without having to destroy them. Generally he also carries stun, frag, and smoke grenades as policy mandates.
Data Uplink A small tool that allows Jack to access an HUD of orders and other important information straight in front of his eyes. By plugging it into a computer's data access point he can also access whatever information it might contain.
Background: Born to a strung-out drug dealer and his girlfriend, Jack was forced to relocate to a poor section of Neon City at the age of three when his father couldn't sell the drugs he'd been offloaded. His first memories are of the hardships of poverty in the city, most of which were the results of excessive crime. His father quickly fell back into drug dealing to make ends meet and was soon put away, while his mother ran off to avoid single parenthood. Jack was snatched up by the authorities and placed into an Aegis youth training program, where he concluded that all crime was evil and should be treated as such. He was like no cadet the academy had ever seen, absorbing every bit of propaganda they gave him and constantly pushing himself to improve. He graduated top of his class and was placed into the Emergency Response unit immediately.

His performance in the Emergency Response Unit was predictably excellent, and he showed the same vigor dealing with drug peddlers as he did with hood terrorists. Eventually he was given a partner named Charles O'mally, and together they cleaned the mean streets one call at a time. After years of hard work, the Emergency Response Unit was given an anonymous tip that a large drug deal was about to go down in an ghetto's abandoned warehouse. A special task force of the Emergency Response Unit was formed, and they swooped in quickly, guns blazing. The hood soldiers were no match for their superior equipment and training. Just as the drugs were being secured, Charles revealed that they would be taking them for the sake of their early retirement. Jack had just enough time to take cover before the entire task force went guns blazing on him. With his training and experience, Hanson managed to dispatch them all. However, he was badly shaken as he knew he could never again have the same sense of camaraderie with the others. After revealing what happened, Jack was given a reward and offered a place amongst the most elite of the elite guard, but he turned them down to prevent ever having to work in a squad again. Now Jack crusades against the lawless on his own, trusting nobody but himself and his equipment.


Infinity-Metias: show
Name: Metias Degoran

Gender: Male

Age: 24

Faction: Aegis, Street Patrol

Appearance: Metias is around 6 foot 2 inches, weighs 189 pounds, though most of the weight is muscle. He's stocky and well built, despite him in the past being a Trojan. He likes to keep his face clean shaven and he keeps his black hair neat and mildly short. Metias has brown eyes which can give off a mysterious glance. However, he has a strangely relaxing atmosphere about him.

When he's on duty, he wears the standard gear for street patrol, with the jacket, goggles, helmet, pants and boots, though at times he may choose to wear the face cover. When he's off duty, he wears a dark blue T-shirt or a hoodie, depending on the weather, black jeans with sneakers.

Talents: He has excellent hacking skills, amongst his great computer skills, because of his past as a Trojan. Metias also learned to shoot a gun properly with precision and is physically able.

Personality: Innately, Metias is kind hearted, and friendly. However he sees this as a weakness. So during assignments, he buries it and adopts a stoic, more serious side of him, however he can be unpredictable. Because of his past, he can sympathetic and merciful, but it is very rare. Though at times, his joking nature peaks through. He also grew a passion and a deep loyalty for his new status, seeing the error of his ways. When he's off duty, he is charismatic and sarcastic in a friendly way, and likes to have fun. Metias is also meticulous, as his name was based off the word.

Equipment:
Aegis Standard Assault Rifle: Semi automatic rifle that can shoot as far as 700 meters. He also carries the standard lethal suppression kit; five standard round clips of 30 each, along with 2 30-round armor piercing clips.

Aegis Police Pistol: A short range pistol that is very powerful. For this, he has 3 15 round clips. He also usually uses a silencer.

Aegis Stun Baton: Delivers a powerful shock that leaves people dazed and temporarily paralyzed.

Electrically induced knife:

Background: Metias and his family always lived middle class, but as he grew older, it was evident that that try were slipping farther and farther down the food chain. At 15, his family was considered poor, and Metias started hacking for his family, to make ends meet. Over the next three years, his hacking skills grew, and joined the Hood as a Trojan, and stayed for roughly a year. While he was over there, he was gained more and more attention, and was on the way for making a name for himself for his skills. One day, he was hacking into a major company, when he was captured by the cops. The police offered him a job and he accepted, not wanting to go to jail, and at first it was the only reason.

He was put into the Aegis youth training program, but he felt he was a bit to old. Nonetheless, he ignored it and continued to train. His performance was a bit over average for what they expected it to be, yet overall he was normal. Over the next 5 years, he continued his training, and gained their trust and finally desired to be on the force as on of them. Finally, a few months ago, his wish was granted and he awarded Street Patrol status, but is monitored in case of corruption.


Jade Dragons
LG-Carmella: show
Username: Live Grenade

Name: Carmella "Chameleon" Saige
Gender: Female
Age: 30
Faction: Jade Dragons
Appearance: Carmella is relatively tall, standing at 5'10, but her typically curled up posture acts to diminish her size. Her body is pear-shaped, narrower at the top, but wider at the hips. Her short, auburn hair is usually so thick with twigs and leaves that it resembles something like a bird's nest resting over her round face. Her dull green eyes have a droopy quality to them, and her slender nose is rounded at the tip. Carmella's slightly narrow mouth has full, colorless lips, and the dimples on her face are slightly accentuated. While patrolling the woods, she wears forest camouflage fatigues and prefers to go barefooted. In the field, she wears a t-shirt and jeans under a steel grey jumpsuit, with minimal body armor.
Talents: Carmella is well versed in survival skills and has in-depth knowledge of chemistry. She moves nimbly and stealthily, and has extensive knowledge of the forest. She has photographic memory, as well as keen vision, hearing, and smell. She's also incredibly skilled when it comes to flower arrangement.
Personality: Carmella has always been shy, preferring isolation over the company of others. Meek in demeanor, she has always been something of a doormat. She has a reputation of being incredibly antsy, becoming anxious if she feels confined, or even if she has to sit still for extended periods. When interacting with others, she laughs a lot and has a tendency to become flustered, causing her to come off as ditzy at times. She is actually quite smart, but very immature for her age. While she doesn't like to hurt others, she is willing to kill for Jade Dragons' cause as long as she isn't required to hurt civilians. However, in a life-or-death situation, all bets are off.
Equipment:
Bombs- Carmella's arsenal consists of a variety of bombs that use chemical reactions to achieve different effects. These include explosive, stun, smoke, poison, knock-out, paralysis, hallucinogenic, steam, and corrosive.
Crossbow- Carmella totes a crossbow along with a quiver full of bolts at all times. She also carries poison for dipping the bolts in, as well as an antidote. She can tie bombs to the bolts for increased precision.
Bowie Knife- Nothin' to say, really. Just a bowie knife. You look fantastic, by the way.
Satchel- Contains several lengths of polyester rope as well as an entrenching tool. Also used for carrying herbs and minerals.
Garbage Bag- For hiding quickly while in the city.
Background:
Carmella was raised in a suburban part of the country by her father, an ambitious computer programmer named David Saige. There was a forest very near her home and, since her father had very little time or energy to spend on her, she went there often. In her free time, she would camp out in the woods or go hiking. As she grew, her interest in the outdoors did as well. Soon enough, she was learning how to trap, hunt, fish, and track. She even talked her father into getting her a bow. With the internet as her teacher, she slowly but surely became a skilled outdoorswoman. Eventually, she started bringing back interesting plants and minerals she found in the forest. She found that she enjoyed looking for and identifying them, as well as testing their effects on her father.
One day, Carmella's father informed her that they would be moving to Neon city. The recent uprising of hackers and identity thefts were beginning to put some strain on the authorities, and a programmer of David's skill would be well appreciated, not to mention well paid. Though she wanted nothing to do with Neon city, Carmella went along with it. Fortunately, the city wasn't as bad as she thought it would be. Sure, there were many more people, but there were also several parks and wooded areas. Though she would no longer be allowed to hunt in the forest, she could still collect things she found there. Moreover, with her father's higher salary, he was able to completely fund her college education. Graduating at the age of 23, she moved on to a career in chemistry.

As the years passed by, deforestation claimed more and more of the wooded parts of the city. Carmella, who still frequented these areas, was devastated. Why anybody would clear out these beautiful patches of nature in favor of some ugly buildings, she simply couldn't comprehend. Before long, only one wooded area remained, the forest on the outskirts of the city. She decided that she wasn't going to sit by any longer while the forests she loved so dearly were demolished. It was time to take up the banner of passive-aggressive behavior. She took some gear and disappeared into the forest, vowing not to leave until the city agreed to let it be. For a while, Carmella considered chaining herself to a tree, but that seemed a bit cliche. Instead, she began rigging traps around the forest. Snares, nets, pitfalls, anything she could think of.

Before long, Carmella heard a loud snap, followed by shouting. She followed the sounds to find a man dangling by his leg from a tree. She was so excited that the trap had worked, but was interrupted before she could congratulate herself.

"H-hey, let me down!" The man yelled. Quickly, Carmella climbed up and released the snare. The man dropped to the ground with a dull thud. She rushed over to see if he was alright, but he quickly jumped up and grabbed her wrist.

"Ohoooooh, now you're in for it." The man said angrily. He turned and stalked off deeper into the forest, prisoner in tow. After a while, Carmella spoke up.
"Um, excuse m-"
"Quiet." He cut her off.
"But you're about to-"
"I said, shut UUUAAGH!" The man fell like a bag of bricks into one of Carmella's pitfalls.

Without hesitation, she knelt down at the edge and offered him a hand. Saying nothing, he reluctantly took it and clambered back up. He glared at her for a moment before moving on, bidding her to follow with a wave of his hand. She did.

After roughly an hour of walking, the two made it to what looked vaguely like a lodge of some sort. People scurried about like ants hard at work, but the man brought Carmella to a tall, intimidating fellow holding a clipboard. She cowered behind her captor as they approached.

"Ah, Terrance. Another of your 'lady friends', I'm guessing?" The mountainous man addressed him.
"As if." Terrance scoffed, slightly wounding Carmella. "I found this one laying traps in the forest."
"I see. So, you caught her in the act?"
"Well, not exactly, but it could only have been her." Terrance glanced at Carmella nervously, then nudged her with his elbow. "Tell him."
"Um, I… Yes. I laid the traps." She stuttered. The tall man bent down until he was eye level with Carmella.
"How did you meet this man?" He asked. Carmella, too scared out of her wits to do anything else, responded immediately.
"Found him in a tree." She said. Terrance's eyes widened.
"…What were you doing in a tree, Terrance." The man asked, incredulous.
"Oh, you know." He responded. "Just hanging." Carmella giggled, then clasped her hands over her mouth.
"You got caught in the trap, didn't you?" The towering man sighed.
"I got caught in the trap, sir."
"I thought we taught you people to spot traps."
"It was a really well concealed trap, sir."
"You don't say." The man eyed Carmella, intrigued.
"I do say."
"Well, don't say anymore. You're dismissed. Go clean the latrines or something."

With a melodramatic moan, Terrance sauntered off, leaving Carmella alone with this bear of a man. She stood frozen in fear while he jotted something down on his clipboard. After a few seconds, he stopped and looked up.

"You're still here?" He asked. Carmella nodded.
"Well, you can go now." He said. Carmella shook her head.
"Why's that, then?" He inquired.
"I, uh… I have to protect the forest." She responded. The man raised an eyebrow.
"Well then. Do you want to join us?" He offered. Carmella stopped for a moment.
"Um, who's 'us'?"
"Why, 'us' is the Jade Dragons."

He sat there crying, until The Raven landed on his shoulder. Richard looked up into the eyes of a beautiful woman.
"What's wrong young one?" She asked.
"I'm all alone." Replied Richard.
"Here come with me." She held out a soft hand.
She led him and taught him the ways of the Jade Dragons.
Richard then joined the Jade Dragons, defending all animals from the ever changing world.
Other: (I would like for him to have a pet Raven but if that's not OK I understand.)

NPCs

Aegis
Sgt Will Naismith: Naismith is the head of the Aegis Emergency Response team. He is a respected member of the force who has made his way to the top, serving the police long before they were taken over by Aegis. Standing at 6 feet, 4 inches, Naismith is either seen wearing his officer uniform from pre-Aegis when in his office for memory's sake or in the current uniform when on the field. His short, graying hairs are usually covered by an officer's cap. Many officers look up to him as he is an honest man who wishes for justice and only that. Naismith can understand why Hood steals, but even with their intentions, they are still thieves and nothing more to his eyes. Despite his age, he is skilled with a gun and is a tactical genius. Rarely does he go direcetly into the field now, as he can normally call the shots safely from elsewhere. All major emergencies are led and dealt with by him.

Donavan Walters: Walters it the CEO of Aegis weapons and equipment company. Always seen with a electric blue suit, Walters keeps himself clean shaven, showing off his chiseled appearance and his cybernetic eye modifications. He founded the company through his love of firearms. Walters wanted to make a footprint in the firearms history books, so he put all his time and money building up his company to where it is today. When Hood started to gain more and more presences, and the Neon police department were struggling to keep up, Walters saw this as an opportunity. If there's one thing he loves more than guns, it's money. He negotiated with the mayor of Neon a business deal, fund the police department with supplies and training in return for having his company's name all over the city. With fear of Hood completely taking over, the deal was made and now Aegis spearheads the fight against Hood.

Seth Monroe: Seth is a longtime friend of Sgt. Naismith, working alongside him before the Aegis takeover. Almost always seen in his field uniform, people question if he owns any other clothing. When his helmet is off, Seth shows off his dark skin, gray eyes and buzzed haircut. He is very skilled with a gun and is trained in kickboxing. With the help of various implants, can break both of your knees before you realize what happened despite his older age. Both him and Naismith had the opportunity to become head of the response team, but Seth declined, as he knew he would have significantly less field time. When on the job, he's a great leader to his men, but gets quite angry if any of them mess up. Seth will scold them, calling them an idiot and useless, as a majority of the day to day tasks seem like child's play to Seth. He prefers being referred to by his first name over his last as he feels Monroe sounds too feminine.

Gary "Fireman" Polsk: Gary is an odd fellow. He enjoys being alone, when he hates someone, he makes it known, and cares little for sleep. Often hunched over, his blond hair is unkempt and cares little for his body. More often than not, he wears what he finds the most comfortable and will usually wear the same outfit for multiple days at a time. He works in the cyber security department at Aegis, mostly to quickly shut out any intruders. He's not the head of this department due to his poor social skills, but he is without a doubt, the best at what they do. Gary earned the nickname "Fireman" when he first got hired. He was found snooping around confidential government files out of sheer curiosity. When found, they suspected he was a part of Trojan, but immediately denied that. He told them in a deadpan tone that he had no intention to look at the files, he just wanted to see if he could get past their firewall. Aegis was curious, so they ran several tests, found out he wasn't lying, and offered him a job. The department soon grew to like him past his odd personality, saying he could get past any firewall, earning him the nickname Fireman.

Hood
Kellan Lewis: Hellan is the unofficial leader of Hood. He is considerably fit for his age of 40 and still has many hairs on his head. He grew up the he poor part of Neon city, living next to all the gangs. At a young age, he wondered what would happen if all these gangs used their manpower for better intentions than themselves. The idea of Hood was born this day. Kellan is a natural leader, so when he noticed various gangs and crime groups constantly targeting the rich, he rallied all their leaders together and suggested the idea of Hood. They say if it weren't for his perfect choice of words, Hood would have never come to be. Hood's first major heist was led by Kellan. Ever since then, he naturally slid into the role of leader and has been doing a great job ever since. In order to keep all the gears of Hood running smoothly as they can, Kellan set up Hood headquarters in the s**** of the Dead-Eye Bar, one of the many planning locations, although this is considered the "main" hub. Nowadays, Kellan only involves himself in the planning stages of large heists, as he claims his "shot isn't what it used to be".

Melanie Lewis: Melanie is Kellan's younger sister. At the tender age of 27, she runs the bar. Biologically, they are not related. Kellan found her when she was only 8, working as cheap labor in a restaurant. He wanted to give her a better life, so he snuck her out of the restaurant and raised her, not as an elder, but as an equal. Melanie's main job is to keep Dead-Eye Bar on the down low. This isn't too difficult as she more often than not, uses her feminine charm and rich auburn hair to distract customers from arousing any sort of suspicious activity. She learned a few things from Kellan to defend herself, as she is skilled with a knife and can fire a gun accurately, although she has never killed anyone. Other than hiding the crime boss in the s****, Melanie loves serving people drinks at the bar and meeting new people.

Daniel Fenton: Daniel is a young man who aspired to create his own business. He studied hard to get into the top school for business, managing to just make it into the most prestigious program. During his final years of studies, he internet with various major CEOs. If there was one thing Daniel learned from those few years was that essentially all big name business men were filled to the brim with greed. They didn't care about the consumers, they just cared if they made a profit. This impacted Daniel so much, he almost dropped out school to change his path in life. One day he was walking around near black market unknowingly, trying to get away from the city lights, when he passed several homeless people. He felt so bad for them, he invited these complete strangers to a drink at none other than the Dead-Eye Bar. Kellan happened to be in that day, and was curious when a man in a suit sat down with a group of homeless people. Kellan approached Daniel, questioning his motives. He replied saying it is what he wants. Since that day, Daniel returned to The Dead-Eye with a new group of homeless folk on a weekly basis, catching Kellan's attention every time. Kellan finally decided to have a long conversation with Daniel, to learn who he really was. Being a student, Daniel told him his entire story with every little detail. Kellan loved him just like that and asked him if he was interested in Hood's cause. Daniel felt like this was an opportunity from god and joined with hood. He joined under the condition that he continue his schooling to get close to various targets. Now finished with his education, Daniel owns a small business that deals with networking, using it as a front for Hood activities. He doesn't go on the front line, but with his business background, he is familiar with banks and how they run. Daniel earned himself the responsibility of distributing the stolen money with the least suspicion by sending it evenly among many accounts, looking merely like a paycheck being put into a bank for his employees. He also goes undercover when they need to get on the inside of a certain building, or know more about a high target.

Alton Oswald: Alton was the leader of the Prodigal Sons. He is now the equivalent of a captain in Hood's chain of command. Alton, age 37 sports a shaved head, tanned skin and various tattoos on his arms. He keeps Hood grounded, reminding Kellan that they are still criminals. He decided to join hood for two reasons, he hated the rich for being corrupt, greedy, jerks and admired Kellan's balls for wanting to steal from them. He has a tendency resort to violence instead of thinking things through, resulting in less negotiations when Alton is leading an operation, and more deaths. Alton did manage to get an illegal cybernetic implant, replacing his shoulders. They are now cybernetically enhanced, giving his arms a significantly greater amount of strength. He was skilled at physical fights before the augmentations and now is even better because of it. Despite his hot headed nature, Alton is a strong leader. he has an unbreakable will that carries on into his men, making him one of the best allies during a dire situation.

Victor Han: Victor wears his Shell leader title proudly, making him one of the most known by his face alone. His iconic spiky jet black hair is easily recognizable above his sharp facial features. If you were one of the few people who didn't know who he was, you would have guessed he's from the rich area of Neon City by the way he dresses. Commonly seen in a tight navy blazer with dark green details, Victor likes to stay on the ball with trends. To make him even more distinct, he contains so many cybernetic implants, you would think he was originally a robot made human. There aren't any obvious ones on his face aside from retractable sunglasses, but both his arms are robotic as well as his legs from the knee down. He agreed with Hood because he felt it would take some attention away from him, although he secretly wants more. Despite his attention seeking nature, Victor is very calm and calculating when it comes to problems. He's often seen adding some new gadget to an arm or a leg.

Albert Denver: Albert probably knows every important detail about you that you don't even know yourself. Being the leader of the Trojans, he is a master hacker, able to quickly understand new concepts. People say that his head is like the most complex computer system that would ever exist. Albert is almost never seen away from his computer, and if he is, he has a portable computer with him. Despite his willing isolation, he is admired for his talent, netting him the leader of Trojan. He joined with Hood to challenge himself. Albert believes that if they become more known, more manpower will be put into cyber security. He hopes one day to find a system that he cannot get through.

Jade Dragons
"Vert": Vert, as he is known, is the leader of the Jade Dragons. Not much is known about him, or the group in general. All people know is that they want the world to be back in its natural state, be it achieved by destroying factories and buildings. Vert is seen with a mask covering the lower part of his face and tinted goggles covering his eyes. His dark brown hair does show a little bit under his hood. His military green sleeveless jacket extends to his knees which cover the upper part of his tan cargo pants. It's rumored that Vert secretly has a cybernetic implant of sorts, although no one has been able to confirm this. Every time the Jade Dragons strike, Vert's green trail is always to be seen briefly, making their presence known.

Other:
Mayor Neil Harris: Mayor Harris was elected when he promised to cut down on crime in the city. Always dressed in a business suit, the Mayor doesn't have time to keep his body in shape, so he relies on cybernetics to fix that. Much of his figure is caused by unnatural nano-technologies fixing his body for him. Strong willed, he is very eager to see all criminals locked up in Neon City. Often he loses sleep when he hears the news about another heist, but tries to use this as motivation to keep going at his goal. It's because of this that Donovan can get pretty much anything he wants by asking the Mayor. All he has to do is tell him it will help with eliminating Hood and the Mayor will do what he can.

Dr. Jeffrey Louis: CEO and founder of cybernetics company Biotrans. Currently number one in all cybernetic. Head of the #1 cybernetics company, Biotrans, Dr. Louis is considered to be the founder of major cybernetic technologies. A naturally tall man, he gave himself several implants, mostly just to heighten his senses. Even with his CEO title, he still performs surgeries himself as he finds it is his passion and refuses to stop. He doesn't often walk the streets of Neon, letting his workers do his errands for him, and often relaxes at the top floor of the Biotrans building, admiring the view. If he does leave his penthouse/office, it will be to perform an implant. Dr. Louis doesn't perform implants on just anyone, only experimental cybernetics that haven't been deemed safe for the public or important figures he knows have money.

Guess I'll be the one to break the ice:

Username:Kiki
Name: Jennifer "Jenny" Christina Fordson (Known amongst the ranks as JC)
Gender: Female
Age: 23
Faction: Hood - Shell
Appearance: JC is roughly 5"6, and is slim though her arms are fairly toned because of her work. Her skin is tanned, and her arms are usually splotched with car oil and grease. Hair eyes are wide and have a lively glint: being hazel; mostly brown with flecks of green and gold, though they turn electric blue when she's activated the neural implant. Her mouth is usually in a sarcastic, though well meaning, grin, with thin pale lips. JC's hair is long and brown, almost always kept in a ponytail, with her bangs pulled diagonally across her forehead and tucked behind her left ear.
She often wears a dark green hoodie, (usually rolled up her forearms), and faded dark grey baggy jeans held up by a checkered black and white belt and tucked into black scuffed army boots. Around her neck hang a pair of worn dark-lens goggles and she wears open-fingered gloves each with a metal ring built into the palm. Behind her right ear is a small tattoo of a key, though it often goes unnoticed and on her ears are plain studded earrings. Overall, she gives off a tomboy-ish vibe.
Talents: JC is a talented mechanic and electrical technician. She has an extensive knowledge of vehicles and has created various gadgets. This has been learned through classes in school, though most her knowledge has come through her own experimentation.
Personality: JC is a lively and fun-loving girl. Always quick to jump in on an adventure, she often leaps without taking a second to think of the consequences. JC is inquisitive, and creative, spending days in the garage putting together strange objects she found to invent new things; this is one of the few moments that you'll find a completely different, more quiet, side to JC. She considers herself one of the guys; capable of keeping up with their pranks and quick to tease her pals. Above all though, she absolutely admires her older brother Jonny.
Equipment:
Polarizer - Originally, these gloves were designed to help JC hold onto her tools while she worked in more compromising positions, however she soon found that she could amplify the effects of the magnets in her glove allowing her to release magnetic pulses of attracting or repulsing.
Occipital neural implant - Allows her eyes to see in telescopic, and infrared vision.
Wrench, Screwdriver, and Pliers - Tools she ALWAYS has on hand.
Background: JC's birth came with complications; her occipital lobe had failed to develop as it should have during her gestation. In normal circumstances, it would have meant she'd be blind, however with the advancements in medical technology, they were able to fix her. Unfortunately for the Fordsons, they were unable to afford such a procedure, though they were provided the opportunity to have a new (read: experimental) neural implant which enhanced vision. The surgery was a success, and the baby girl could see, though she also had an extreme aversion to bright lights; being exposed to them caused her to have crippling migraines. It was eventually revealed that the implants were capable of also seeing in infrared and through certain materials.

Aside from her turbulent toddler hood, JC's life was fairly simple. Her parents worked hard trying to make ends meet. Her father would disappear for days on end as he went away to work in factories, mines, and ships, while her mother would leave early in the mornings and arrive late at night. It was her brother Jonathan who raised her, being only 4 years older than his sister, and they formed a close bond. By the time she was 14 though, Jonathan had grown more distant; he came home late at night, often with bruises and locked himself in his room for extended periods of time. His mother worried, knowing he had taken up with the "wrong crowd", but Jonny refused to stop what he was doing and he revealed little, even to his sister.

In school, JC had excelled in mechanics, and would've fancied being one professionally, but she did not have the funds to join an apprenticeship program. Having completed school, there was not much for her to do besides somehow manage to scrape up a dead end job. Her brother, suddenly began to take an interest in her life again, urging her to experiment and tinker with things that he brought home from his "excursions". It was clear that his intentions were to induct his sister into his secret pastime, it was something that she had internally always wanted. In due time, he presented Jenny and her inventions to The Hood, proving that his sister would be a valuable asset to the cause. They accepted.

Character Sheet
Username: Kittenpuncher
Name: Jack Hanson
Gender: Male
Age: 33
Faction: Aegis, Emergency Response
Appearance: Standing at 6 foot 7 inches and weighing 240 pounds, Jack is quite the imposing figure. His Caucasian body is mainly muscle with very little fat. Due to rarely seeing the light of day without his uniform, his skin is quite pale. His eyes are brown, as well as his hair, which is so short he's nearly bald. His chiseled, authoritative facial features are always kept clean shaven.
When called out he dons his standard Emergency Response field jacket, pants, boots, and goggles and mask. He keeps them all in pristine condition. Off duty, he dresses in simple tan cargo pants and t-shirts, and usually wears a pair of sunglasses and leather boots.
Talents: An expert at what he does, Jack is trained to handle all sorts of weapons with incredible precision. Years of experience have given him a thorough understanding of the tactics, weapons, and equipment The Hood and Jade Dragons employ. He can deal with citizens and computers effectively and gather information quickly. Hanson is a master of keeping law and order.
Personality: Seemingly Coldhearted, Ice-veined, ruthlessly efficient, and calmly calculating. Jack tries to punish those who break the law to the fullest extent he can get away with, thinking of them as wretched and evil to the core. Every time he kills a criminal, he feels as though he's just made the world a better place, and chasing that sense of satisfaction is what keeps him going no matter what the obstacle. Of course, he follows every order he's given down to the letter.
Equipment: Aegis Assault Rifle V4- A semi-automatic assault rifle effective up to 900 meters. A scope is generally attached to the top to make the most use of the incredible range of this weapon. The stopping power is considerable even without armor piercing rounds. Generally he carries the standard lethal suppression kit; five standard round clips of 30 each, along with 2 30-round armor piercing clips.
Aegis "Pulverizer" Police Pistol A short range pistol that packs an enormous punch. Usually issued alongside 3 15-round clips. Can be used with a silencer for quiet firing, as it is normally pretty loud.
Standard Knife
EMP Grenades Jack's grenades of choice, allowing him to disable any electrical equipment and systems that give him trouble during operations without having to destroy them. Generally he also carries stun, frag, and smoke grenades as policy mandates.
Data Uplink A small tool that allows Jack to access an HUD of orders and other important information straight in front of his eyes. By plugging it into a computer's data access point he can also access whatever information it might contain.
Background: Born to a strung-out drug dealer and his girlfriend, Jack was forced to relocate to a poor section of Neon City at the age of three when his father couldn't sell the drugs he'd been offloaded. His first memories are of the hardships of poverty in the city, most of which were the results of excessive crime. His father quickly fell back into drug dealing to make ends meet and was soon put away, while his mother ran off to avoid single parenthood. Jack was snatched up by the authorities and placed into an Aegis youth training program, where he concluded that all crime was evil and should be treated as such. He was like no cadet the academy had ever seen, absorbing every bit of propaganda they gave him and constantly pushing himself to improve. He graduated top of his class and was placed into the Emergency Response unit immediately.

His performance in the Emergency Response Unit was predictably excellent, and he showed the same vigor dealing with drug peddlers as he did with hood terrorists. Eventually he was given a partner named Charles O'mally, and together they cleaned the mean streets one call at a time. After years of hard work, the Emergency Response Unit was given an anonymous tip that a large drug deal was about to go down in an ghetto's abandoned warehouse. A special task force of the Emergency Response Unit was formed, and they swooped in quickly, guns blazing. The hood soldiers were no match for their superior equipment and training. Just as the drugs were being secured, Charles revealed that they would be taking them for the sake of their early retirement. Jack had just enough time to take cover before the entire task force went guns blazing on him. With his training and experience, Hanson managed to dispatch them all. However, he was badly shaken as he knew he could never again have the same sense of camaraderie with the others. After revealing what happened, Jack was given a reward and offered a place amongst the most elite of the elite guard, but he turned them down to prevent ever having to work in a squad again. Now Jack crusades against the lawless on his own, trusting nobody but himself and his equipment.

Metias: show
Name: Metias Degoran

Gender: Male

Age: 24

Faction: Aegis, Street Patrol 

Appearance: Metias is around 6 foot 2 inches, weighs 189 pounds, though most of the weight is muscle. He's stocky and well built, despite him in the past being a Trojan. He likes to keep his face clean shaven and he keeps his black hair neat and mildly short. Metias has brown eyes which can give off a mysterious glance. However, he has a strangely relaxing atmosphere about him. 

When he's on duty, he wears the standard gear for street patrol, with the jacket, goggles, helmet, pants and boots, though at times he may choose to wear the face cover. When he's off duty, he wears a dark blue T-shirt or a hoodie, depending on the weather, black jeans with sneakers. 

Talents: He has excellent hacking skills, amongst his great computer skills, because of his past as a Trojan. Metias also learned to shoot a gun properly with precision and is physically able. 

Personality: Innately, Metias is kind hearted, and friendly. However he sees this as a weakness. So during assignments, he buries it and adopts a stoic, more serious side of him, however he can be unpredictable. Because of his past, he can sympathetic and merciful, but it is very rare. Though at times, his joking nature peaks through. He also grew a passion and a deep loyalty for his new status, seeing the error of his ways. When he's off duty, he is charismatic and sarcastic in a friendly way, and likes to have fun. Metias is also meticulous, as his name was based off the word. 

Equipment: 
Aegis Standard Assault Rifle: Semi automatic rifle that can shoot as far as 700 meters. He also carries the standard lethal suppression kit; five standard round clips of 30 each, along with 2 30-round armor piercing clips. 

Aegis Police Pistol: A short range pistol that is very powerful. For this, he has 3 15 round clips. He also usually uses a silencer. 

Aegis Stun Baton: Delivers a powerful shock that leaves people dazed and temporarily paralyzed.  

Electrically induced knife:

Background: Metias and his family always lived middle class, but as he grew older, it was evident that that try were slipping farther and farther down the food chain. At 15, his family was considered poor, and Metias started hacking for his family, to make ends meet. Over the next three years, his hacking skills grew, and joined the Hood as a Trojan, and stayed for roughly a year. While he was over there, he was gained more and more attention, and was on the way for making a name for himself for his skills. One day, he was hacking into a major company, when he was captured by the cops. The police offered him a job and he accepted, not wanting to go to jail, and at first it was the only reason. 

He was put into the Aegis youth training program, but he felt he was a bit to old. Nonetheless, he ignored it and continued to train. His performance was a bit over average for what they expected it to be, yet overall he was normal. Over the next 5 years, he continued his training, and gained their trust and finally desired to be on the force as on of them. Finally, a few months ago, his wish was granted and he awarded Street Patrol status, but is monitored in case of corruption.

I love you guys for making characters so quickly, I accepted all three. This update contains a bunch of NPCs as well as the bare basics for a few more as well a super ghetto map I drew in my notes to give an idea of Neon City's layout. I probably won't be able to make another update tomorrow, but hopefully by Friday night, all of the NPCs will be done and my character will be done. No guarantees on the map. If I have enough people by the weekend, I'll make an opening post.


Also a name...

Sounds Interesting...I thought about this guy a lot....Hope this works
Username: Wizzquizz
Name: Danny. Known as "Dues De Machina" to other factions
Gender: Male
Age: 26
Faction: Aegis, Emergency Response
Appearance: (Bare with me) Danny wears a bulky, ugly gray, mechanical suit. It appears to be a armored human. The suit however lowers his movement and must be powered via a charging bay or the retractable solar panels on it.
Talents: Danny is good at thinking through hard situations as well as walking in guns blazing
Personality: Danny is a hardened warrior often hiding his feelings. He can't stand to injure and hurt civilians though. He holds a high sense of honor as well.
Equipment: Aegis Flamethrower attachment: This is an attachment to his suit allowing for him to shoot flamer out of his left wrist.
Aegis Machine Gun Attachment: This attachment allow Danny to rapidly fire bullets from his right wrist.
Aegis Rocket attachment: This allows Danny to store 2 rockets on the suits back and Fire them.
Background: Danny was born in Neon City. When he was born it was quickly revealed he had no immune system. Danny was then moved to a completely sterile room. Do to his health issues his bones never fully developed making him extremely fragile. Danny remained in that room till the age of 5. Once he reached the age of 5 Aegis came to Danny's parent and offer them a deal. They would make a suit for Danny to live in. It would be expensive, but Danny's parent agreed. Aegis didn't tell them that they would make Danny a walking tank. Danny continued to grow in the suit. Once he was of age he went to work for Aegis. He soon realized the many problems and weaknesses of his suit. Any puncture could kill him if not hospitalize him. On one mission the suit fell over leaving Danny on his back until Aegis forces (And cranes) helped him up. The suit also uses power, even more when in combat. this forces Danny to charge it. Danny can dock to quickly charge it, or use solar panels to slowly charge the machine. When the suit runs out of power it locks up, then it swaps to and emergency battery. The emergency battery can allow him to live for 3 days or go into combat for roughly 5 minutes.

Character Sheet
Username: Terra
Name: (Characters can chose to hide their real name, as identity theft is a popular crime) Kenneth Cartwright(nicknamed KC)
Gender: Male
Age: (Absolute minimum age is 19. If it wasn't obvious, the younger you are, the less experienced you are in general. No child prodigies.) 24.
Faction: (Aegis, Hood, Jade Dragons, or none of the above. If none, please specify why.) Hood.
Appearance: (Aegis members, follow the uniform based on your position for on duty clothes. Chose whatever else you want for casual wear.) Kenneth is highly unassuming, wearing basic clothing: a simple colored T-shirt and a pair of worn jeans. He is fairly tall, standing at about 6 feet, but slouches lazily. He has black, glazed-over eyes and slightly tanned skin. He always looks to the sky, as if dreaming of something.
Talents: (Does your character excel at simply shooting people? Or are they a talented computer hacker? Explain what and why here.) An idealist at heart, Kenneth excels at thinking: mainly the philosophical kind, but also receives random bursts of insight at points, due to his eternally dreaming nature. Although not talented physically, he makes up for that shortcoming by being an above-average liar and orator, as well as being able to wield a simple knife to some extent(human who has trained for a year or so equivalent).
Personality: (Has no correlation to what faction you are a part of.) At first glance he looks like a stereotypical dreamer: eternally dreaming, passionate about what he does and has something to work for. They'd be right, except he's has a mild form of the superiority complex, believing that people spend too little time thinking. However, he is fairly good at pulling off the look of a dreamer.
Equipment: (What your character takes with him/her during tasks. Aegis members have standardized equipment. Hood equipment is much more varied as it is more difficult for them to obtain high quality weapons. Hood weapons are either stolen, illegally bought, or custom built. Jade Dragon equipment is more basic, from IEDs and more of today's technology. Any sort of robotic implants are to be listed here. It is more likely for the rich to have implants as it is difficult and expensive to obtain them illegally. Jade Dragon members can't have implants due to their beliefs.) Carries almost nothing with him except a simple knife.
Background: (Straightforward. Your character doesn't have to come from Neon city. They could start on one side, then defect to the other.) Kenneth never had an easy life, though he was born in the hart of Neon City. The idealistic nature of his thoughts made it nigh-impossible for his fairly affluent parents to appreciate his insight. For many years he disappointed his parents, showing absolutely no interest in either their corporation or their ideal choice of job for him: a politician.
Kenneth hated corruption with a passion. He hated how kids richer than him got away with bullying him at a private school, and knew he couldn't do anything to stop them, being physically weak as well as poorer.
As he got older, he soon got interested in the gangs of the city as he began studying English at a nearby university. At first he treated them with nothing less than disdain, thinking they were purely for the sake of selfishness, but soon discovered what the Hood was truly working for: justice and equality for the poor.
He quickly got himself a job working as an English teacher for a nearby public school, while taking it upon himself to contact the Hood, confident that even with his affluent heritage, they would accept him for his goals and motives: for the people, as he would call it. They took him in.

There is a made-up sickness that this character has that you might wish to look at before the character itself that can be located at the bottom of this post under Other.

Username: Deciton_Reven
Name: Samantha Dryson, known to some of the older members as "Angel"
Gender: Female
Age: 29
Faction: Hood
Appearance: Like the anyone else that suffers from Phalmere's Disease, Samantha has pale skin, and all but a few strands of her long hair, that should be black, are instead silvery-grey. Of course her green eyes are mostly colorless as well, however her attractive and expressive face prevents her from having a hollow look. Samantha has a tall and slender frame that is well toned. Her nails are always cut short and are almost never painted, the same applies to her face. She is typically dressed in a vertically striped charcoal-and-black turtle neck, a pair of dark khakis, and a pair of blue pumps.
Talents: Samantha is crazy limber, like ninja level limber, but most of her talent lies in her brains. She put herself through Pharmaceutical school, which, in the Hood, quickly evolved into her becoming a makeshift doctor. When she digs out a bullet, sets an arm, checks for a concussion, etc. she can at least do it without making it worse. She can mix drinks well, and do all the neat spins and throws that go with it, and not only with bottles of alcohol.
Personality: Samantha is both emotional and smart, which is a deadly combination. She is always trying to help people, often in walk-and-talk advice sessions, as she always seems busy or going somewhere. She adores children, but has never tried to have any of her own for obvious reasons. She can be viscous if needed, but she is truly a gentle soul, and if a fight would be pointless, she would probably just give up. She's known for reciting various things to herself, from nursery rhymes to complex mathematical formulas, when she's not talking with someone else.
Background: Samantha was born to an upper-middle class family, however, when the hospital informed her father of the disease she had, he basically decided to forgo doing anything for her beyond basic care, as the only suppressant for the disease, Phomatren, was quite costly, and setting up things like a college fund would 'just be a waste'. Her mother on the other hand reflected the kind person that Samantha's father was, and it was her that did the little things like buy Samantha toys and helped her study for tests.

In high school is when Samantha decided that it would have to be her that made a cure for Slipstream, since everyone else seemed to be content with the suppressant of slowly withering away. It was then she stopped dyeing her hair black and started wearing her 'old lady hair' with pride. After high school Samantha soon found that her college education was going to be a challenge and she would need a job to support herself. She also found out that men were particularly attracted to cute young girls with silvery hair and blank eyes, and got a job at a strip club under the stage name 'Angel Threads'. It was here that she began making her first contacts in Hood (or the groups that would become Hood). In discovering her goals, Samantha was slowly sucked into the gang, and now splits her time between research, patching up wounds, and volunteering at a free youth clinic. Once it was planned for her to help with a heist as a decoy, but that mission didn't take place, she is still willing if needed, though.
Equipment:
Medical Bag: A collect of miscellaneous medical supplies that reside in a hip bag. Notable items include, a pair of surgical knives, bandages, pain killers, a lighter, a flask of whiskey, and needle and thread. Obviously other supplies are there too, just less used.
Chloroform and Rag: Loth to harming any one, Chloroform can take someone out without much harm.
Sidearm: A small pistol designed with the self defense of the average woman in mind. Due to the design being small enough to fit in a purse, it lacks punch and has a small clip. Samantha actually owns this gun and has a carry permit for it.

Other: Pholmere's Disease, known to most as Slipstream, is a birth deflect that acts like a slow acting virus (or infection, IDK which one right now), and seems to have no markers to be able to identify whether or not a child can inherit it, however it is easy to identify whether or not a child has it after birth, due to it's one physical symptom. Slipstream attacks and destroys pigment producing cells in the womb, causing a child born with it to be very pale and to lack color in their hair and eyes. The more serious symptoms begin in the late teens, were the Sickness begins it's assault on the brain, causing difficulties with memory, and sometimes more severe problems, then evolves in the mid-20s and starts attacking the muscles causing them to weaken, and causing tremors in them. Finally in the early 30s it begins it's final assault against the major organs, such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. The nickname 'Slipstream' was given to the Disease on the streets due to it making people seem to age very fast. All the stages have ways to combat, but only the drug, Phomatren, can halt the advance, and even it can only do so for so long. Some believe that this is nature's way of punishing the human race for going against it.

Accept all characters. Wizzquizz, your character is so crazy that I can't not accept that. I love it. I added an Other section to the character sheet so you can explain things like Deciton did (I love the idea of her disease). Surprise update, I had more time today than I thought I would so I got the remaining NPCs descriptions done. I think by this weekend I'll definitely have my character ready and write an opening post. Thanks a lot for the positive reception everyone. I won't quit this one immediately after the first 5 posts.

Also I got a title

Username: Live Grenade

Name: Carmella "Chameleon" Saige

Gender: Female

Age: 30

Faction: Jade Dragons

Appearance: Carmella is relatively tall, standing at 5'10, but her typically curled up posture acts to diminish her size. Her body is pear-shaped, narrower at the top, but wider at the hips. Her short, auburn hair is usually so thick with twigs and leaves that it resembles something like a bird's nest resting over her round face. Her dull green eyes have a droopy quality to them, and her slender nose is rounded at the tip. Carmella's slightly narrow mouth has full, colorless lips, and the dimples on her face are slightly accentuated. While patrolling the woods, she wears forest camouflage fatigues and prefers to go barefooted. In the field, she wears a t-shirt and jeans under a steel grey jumpsuit, with minimal body armor.

Talents: Carmella is well versed in survival skills and has in-depth knowledge of chemistry. She moves nimbly and stealthily, and has extensive knowledge of the forest. She has photographic memory, as well as keen vision, hearing, and smell. She's also incredibly skilled when it comes to flower arrangement.

Personality: Carmella has always been shy, preferring isolation over the company of others. Meek in demeanor, she has always been something of a doormat. She has a reputation of being incredibly antsy, becoming anxious if she feels confined, or even if she has to sit still for extended periods. When interacting with others, she laughs a lot and has a tendency to become flustered, causing her to come off as ditzy at times. She is actually quite smart, but very immature for her age. While she doesn't like to hurt others, she is willing to kill for Jade Dragons' cause as long as she isn't required to hurt civilians. However, in a life-or-death situation, all bets are off.

Equipment:
Bombs- Carmella's arsenal consists of a variety of bombs that use chemical reactions to achieve different effects. These include explosive, stun, smoke, poison, knock-out, paralysis, hallucinogenic, steam, and corrosive.
Crossbow- Carmella totes a crossbow along with a quiver full of bolts at all times. She also carries poison for dipping the bolts in, as well as an antidote. She can tie bombs to the bolts for increased precision.
Bowie Knife- Nothin' to say, really. Just a bowie knife. You look fantastic, by the way.
Satchel- Contains several lengths of polyester rope as well as an entrenching tool. Also used for carrying herbs and minerals.
Garbage Bag- For hiding quickly while in the city.

Background:
Carmella was raised in a suburban part of the country by her father, an ambitious computer programmer named David Saige. There was a forest very near her home and, since her father had very little time or energy to spend on her, she went there often. In her free time, she would camp out in the woods or go hiking. As she grew, her interest in the outdoors did as well. Soon enough, she was learning how to trap, hunt, fish, and track. She even talked her father into getting her a bow. With the internet as her teacher, she slowly but surely became a skilled outdoorswoman. Eventually, she started bringing back interesting plants and minerals she found in the forest. She found that she enjoyed looking for and identifying them, as well as testing their effects on her father.

One day, Carmella's father informed her that they would be moving to Neon city. The recent uprising of hackers and identity thefts were beginning to put some strain on the authorities, and a programmer of David's skill would be well appreciated, not to mention well paid. Though she wanted nothing to do with Neon city, Carmella went along with it. Fortunately, the city wasn't as bad as she thought it would be. Sure, there were many more people, but there were also several parks and wooded areas. Though she would no longer be allowed to hunt in the forest, she could still collect things she found there. Moreover, with her father's higher salary, he was able to completely fund her college education. Graduating at the age of 23, she moved on to a career in chemistry.

As the years passed by, deforestation claimed more and more of the wooded parts of the city. Carmella, who still frequented these areas, was devastated. Why anybody would clear out these beautiful patches of nature in favor of some ugly buildings, she simply couldn't comprehend. Before long, only one wooded area remained, the forest on the outskirts of the city. She decided that she wasn't going to sit by any longer while the forests she loved so dearly were demolished. It was time to take up the banner of passive-aggressive behavior. She took some gear and disappeared into the forest, vowing not to leave until the city agreed to let it be. For a while, Carmella considered chaining herself to a tree, but that seemed a bit cliche. Instead, she began rigging traps around the forest. Snares, nets, pitfalls, anything she could think of.

Before long, Carmella heard a loud snap, followed by shouting. She followed the sounds to find a man dangling by his leg from a tree. She was so excited that the trap had worked, but was interrupted before she could congratulate herself.

"H-hey, let me down!" The man yelled. Quickly, Carmella climbed up and released the snare. The man dropped to the ground with a dull thud. She rushed over to see if he was alright, but he quickly jumped up and grabbed her wrist.

"Ohoooooh, now you're in for it." The man said angrily. He turned and stalked off deeper into the forest, prisoner in tow. After a while, Carmella spoke up.
"Um, excuse m-"
"Quiet." He cut her off.
"But you're about to-"
"I said, shut UUUAAGH!" The man fell like a bag of bricks into one of Carmella's pitfalls.

Without hesitation, she knelt down at the edge and offered him a hand. Saying nothing, he reluctantly took it and clambered back up. He glared at her for a moment before moving on, bidding her to follow with a wave of his hand. She did.

After roughly an hour of walking, the two made it to what looked vaguely like a lodge of some sort. People scurried about like ants hard at work, but the man brought Carmella to a tall, intimidating fellow holding a clipboard. She cowered behind her captor as they approached.

"Ah, Terrance. Another of your 'lady friends', I'm guessing?" The mountainous man addressed him.
"As if." Terrance scoffed, slightly wounding Carmella. "I found this one laying traps in the forest."
"I see. So, you caught her in the act?"
"Well, not exactly, but it could only have been her." Terrance glanced at Carmella nervously, then nudged her with his elbow. "Tell him."
"Um, I… Yes. I laid the traps." She stuttered. The tall man bent down until he was eye level with Carmella.
"How did you meet this man?" He asked. Carmella, too scared out of her wits to do anything else, responded immediately.
"Found him in a tree." She said. Terrance's eyes widened.
"…What were you doing in a tree, Terrance." The man asked, incredulous.
"Oh, you know." He responded. "Just hanging." Carmella giggled, then clasped her hands over her mouth.
"You got caught in the trap, didn't you?" The towering man sighed.
"I got caught in the trap, sir."
"I thought we taught you people to spot traps."
"It was a really well concealed trap, sir."
"You don't say." The man eyed Carmella, intrigued.
"I do say."
"Well, don't say anymore. You're dismissed. Go clean the latrines or something."

With a melodramatic moan, Terrance sauntered off, leaving Carmella alone with this bear of a man. She stood frozen in fear while he jotted something down on his clipboard. After a few seconds, he stopped and looked up.

"You're still here?" He asked. Carmella nodded.
"Well, you can go now." He said. Carmella shook her head.
"Why's that, then?" He inquired.
"I, uh… I have to protect the forest." She responded. The man raised an eyebrow.
"Well then. Do you want to join us?" He offered. Carmella stopped for a moment.
