My character could have met any of yours in high school for the classes that she bothered attending, or during her early forays into the car racing scene.

Iíll admit now that I know bog all about the area, so Iíll have to take peopleís leads on the local geography, landmarks, culture  and suchlike.

Don't worry, if you need help with geography and the like, feel free to ask them here, or in the OOC thread I'll be setting up.

For now, here are some links that may be a little help to everyone.

Okay, here's what I got so far.  It's tentative to change as aya needs to give it a glance so I didn't post it in the main thread.  Also I wanted to make sure it meets with approval from the GM.  :D

Leonid ďLeoĒ Byron Morrison


Age: 24
Gender: Male
Orientation: Heterosexual
Position in Club: Co-Leader/Driver/Mechanic
Specialty: Engine work (especially in muscle cars)
Personality:  Leo can be highly stubborn, but is generally keeps an even and steady head about him.  He knows what he likes and dislikes anyone that tries to belittle him for it.  At the shop he is friendly enough, and even about as honest as any mechanic ever could be.  Away from the job he's relaxed, a bit jovial with friends, and always plain spoken.
History:  Leo is the son of a long line of blue collar workmen.  His great-grandfather worked in construction, building some of the largest buildings within the city.  His grandfather helped construct the elevated trains.  His father repaired the cities vehicles while making enough money for the boy to go to school and get a proper education.

Leo went through school much like any other child.  He excelled at sports and had a natural gift at tinkering with engines and other aspects of metal work.  He made decent grades, but that was shadowed by his skill at linebacker on the football field.

Leo's mother passed away during the summer of his senior year in high school, leaving the father and son together.  Throwing himself into work around the shop and very little with school he almost failed out of High School altogether.  However he barely graduated and his skill on the football field earned him a scholarship to University.

While away at college Leo had taken up an interest in the Sweet Science of boxing.  It became a past time he indulged in during the off-time from football and earned him a small amount of notoriety while in college.  He began to acclimate to the college life easily, enjoying everything it had to offer.

It was during this time that things took a turn for the worst.  Just nearing the end of his Senior year his father's house burned to the ground with the elder Morrison still inside.  Making matters worse, during an early season game Leo blew his knee out and with it any chances of making it in the pros.  The loss of both parents left the young Morrison to inherit the family business which he decided to carry on with after he barely graduated from college.

Physical Description: Physically built much like an athlete, never having lost the workout ethic from college sports.  Heís on the tall side clocking in at 6í 3Ē tall (190.5 cm) and keeps his dark hair cut close.  Aside from he occasional grease smears from working on an engine he has no body art to show.

Extra Info: Leo has a two modes of transit.  The first being a GMC Topkick C4500 for work and the second being a rebuilt í71 Challenger

Leo meets my approval so far Fal, when you've discussed things with Aya, and decide it's all done, just pop it into the character thread and I'll update the info.

I really want to go with a 67' Impala, but that would be so cliche for me, since well....I almost always choose a 67' for my characters cars lol.

[Leah Morrison]


Age: 21
Gender: Female
Orientation: Heterosexual
Position in Club: Non-club member.
Specialty: Annoying her big brother, Amateur car modelling, Occasional driving.
Personality: Leah is smart, but still young. She knows how to sweet talk people into getting what she wants, and knows when to back off. While her older brother is plain and up front, Leah is very aware about what comes out of her mouth. She is usually curious and very hard to dislodge once something captures her interest: a huge source of annoyance for Leo growing up. As such, Leah can be extremely stubborn at times, a trait that seemed to run in the family. Generally, she is friendly and relaxed- until she gets fired up by something.
History: Leah grew up as the family's princess of sorts, being the youngest child and a girl. She was always well cared for by her parents, almost to the point where she could be considered spoiled- though not from material goods. While Leo didn't show as much affection like her parents, Leah received no end of help from him growing up- though she may not have been aware of most of it.

While her brother was average in academics and made his name in sports, Leah excelled in getting high grades- part of the reason their parents usually favoured her slightly, much to her brother's displeasure. When their mother had passed away, Leah was only in grade 9- her rude awakening to the real world and everything that was in it. This streak would only continue in her life, but she grew to be quite strong inside, despite her otherwise frail appearance.

Although her grades were high enough for admission into Ivy League schools, Leah chose to attend the same college as her older brother- Partly to stay with her family, but mostly because of monetary constraints. In freshman year, things took a turn for the worse with the Morrison family. After the fire that had left the siblings without parents, Leah began to work as an amateur car model to help pay for schooling, and the new house where the two of them now live.
Physical Description: Average height at 5'6, but possessing rather good looks, landing her a job as an amateur car model.
Extra Info: Although she doesn't work at the family business, Leah has a surprisingly extensive knowledge of cars from her job and her brother, and stops by frequently to check on Leo. As part of an extremely secret advertising deal, a friend of Leah's who manages a dealership in the city has given her an old GT-R to drive that had been sitting around.

Well, it's up. Let me know if anything needs reviewing, esp. the history part so it fits well with everyone else :)

I like it, and it's approved.  Have you and Fal worked everything out?  If so feel free to post them up in the Character thread. 

On a side note, I think the club would have formed 2/3 years ago, thoughts?

*Noms on your character

Awe~some!  Okay we just need two more male slots taken up and I'll throw out an OOC thread for us to chatter in.  I'm kinda surprised that there isn't more male interest, but I am pleasantly surprised that we've gotten so many ladies into this :)

We do, and we'd love to have you Acid.  I would suggest you take up the scrap yard worker position, there will be room for non club members to join up later on, but this would be a good position to try out and see if you like it.

We just need two more male slots to be taken up to start.  Right now we have 4 female to 2 male characters.  I want it evened out a bit more before threads open up.

mmm scrap yard worker? what exactly would be his job with the group?. I don't see myself playing that, anything more you need hon?

Well, it's just a job title actually.  One of the Co-Leaders works and owns it, and a few other characters work there to.  Any secondary cast member can be as involved with the racing scene as they like, they just wouldn't be considered actual Club members, yet.  That being said, all members in this game are still part of the "family" since everyone knows each other for years.

We also have a club position open to, a mechanic that manages the Auto-shop.

Well let me know if you decide.  Just throw out ideas of what you want your character, plot wise, to have, and people will plot with you about it.  Doing that first and than deciding which job title suits would probably work better.

For what I see this is about a group of racers, basically a family like fast and the furious.Well I was thinking of a mechanic but I know jack shit about stuff like that, (I cannot even change my own tire). I just like the closeness of the group and all maybe a contact underground so he could get the latest parts? no idea really I am going in a blank here.
