The year is 2021, and the streets of Los Angeles are a miasma of crime, indulgence, and waste. In the years since the death of its genius patriarch the Tyrell Corporation's new management has pioneered a new, highly illegal means of research into replicant production.
Unregistered replicants, unaware of their status as machines have been released onto the streets of Los Angeles. These unique experimental replicants eventually succumb to a preprogrammed recall response, subconsciously directing them towards a reunion with their creators at Tyrell at a predesignated time and place. In living 'normal' lives as humans, these replicants' brains form neural networks unachievable in a laboratory setting. These unique networks have led to great breakthroughs in replicant programming.
However, all is not well. Of the latest batch of replicants released for data accumulation, several have not returned. In an effort to maintain the secrecy of its operations in Los Angeles, the Tyrell Corporation has commissioned a team of private blade runners to recover the missing merchandise before the public becomes aware of the company's gross misconduct.
You, dear player, will draft up a character in this world, any submission is acceptable. Perhaps you're on Tyrell's goon squad, clandestinely patrolling the city for lost replicants. Maybe you're a cop investigating a string of missing persons, or a criminal smuggling goods and people through the dark underbelly of future Los Angeles. You could even be a normal, upstanding citizen, minding your own business, tending your 401(k). The possibilities are endless, (within of course, the bounds of Los Angeles). After you and your compatriots have submitted enough profiles I'll pick a few users at random, (and yes, I will do it randomly), and notify them that they are, in fact, replicants. Out of those few several of your characters will know they are manufactured machines, several will be yet unaware. The replicants will above all else maintain secrecy of their status. You the players will need to find out through detective work which amongst you is flesh and bone, and which dream of electric sheep!
Here's the basic template to follow:
Appearance: Picture, written description, or both is great
Bio: Who is your character, and what if any is their relation to the replicant crisis? If you find out you're a replicant, please don't post it here. Remember your character's life depends on keeping this fact secret! (Don't worry everyone players, should the investigation stall, I'll introduce new leads).
Name: Oliver Whitney
Appearance: Mr. Whitney is always dressed in formal business attire except for those few times he accompanies his operatives into the field, at which time his clothing suits the demands of necessity. Pallid in complexion and graying at the temples, his rugged good looks still show through the years on his face, a result of the physical fitness he strives to maintain.
Bio: Whitney has been a Tyrell man for nearly as long as the departed doctor himself, rising through the ranks of its private security staff until he was overseeing the entire corporate intelligence office. Brusque and energetic for his age, he oversees all affairs from counter-corporate espionage, to covert information gathering, shady political dealings, and outright media manipulation. As of last week his top priority has been the retrieval of research's missing replicants, a messy affair he his department has been working double time to fix since.
