Something in between the Presidents bodyguard and top enforcer, but also maintains control during meetings in the event things a little volatile.

But I'm sure we won't have any in fighting, right? :P

Well if you want to take VP, I think OSG mentioned his biker would be some kind of enforcer, so perhaps the Sergeant at Arms? I could take up President so we only need a secretary, someone to handle the cash.

We could NPC the secretary role if no one takes it. Could even make it a part of the story line, maybe something has happened to him. *shrugs* So did we narrow it down to Texas or Florida? I'd throw my vote to Florida personally.

Lesleymoon and I have been brainstorming together. So I am going to play her OCs big brother which should be interesting.

Their parents were drunks, the mother was numb and the father was abusive so they had to rely on each other. They both suffered form the psychological and physical abuse but my OC will have suffered more from the physical as he tried to protect his sister so while she suffered more psychological abuse she still would have taken quite a few beating herself.

So when they could they left their parents and went to an uncle who owned a bar a few states away where he was a friend of the local chapter. It was there that the kids were introduced to the biker life and the rest is history.

We also talked about what form of income we thought the charter should go for and to us at least prostitution the one we like the most.

I am also wondering what they should do as a cover business.

I'm okay with prostitution, rather like gun running too.
As for a cover business, a lapdancing joint maybe? Might be cliche....perhaps a sports hall or MMA club? Maybe even a Motorbike dealership.

I like gunrunning as well but with the character I thought prostitution would work well. If we can work both in I would love it, maybe have them make a deal with one of the gangs and they run the guns to them for the profit and it keeps one border safe maybe?

Lapdancing joint might be cliche but at least your didn't say porn studio lol that is what came to my mind first.

Agreed I think them being involved in prostitution is a given, like the idea of corruption of high school girls and soccer mums and of course the bikers would get to pick and choose when they sampled the goods (without paying)

Also like the gun running idea , as a non American looking on from the outside I'd say Texas would be a lot more lucrative than Florida simply because of the suspected volume of illegal goods following across the US Mexico border...but I'm all good with either state.

Also just dipping my oar into whether we're open to members of the motorcycle club being multiracial...on a personal level ,of course, its all good whoever people want to play etc etc ..but realistically having mixed race bikers would be difficult (the most obvious issue would come if we had members in jail and whether we like it or not reality is that Jail ain't Shawshank Redemption anymore  its all race based I daresay anyone who puts anything above race in jail isn't getting out of jail unless its by bodybag)

Saying that theres no reason why organisations from different races can't work together...The Son's have a very tight relationship with the Grim Bastards (and African American biker gang) and heck even the Mayans always seem to be working with (at some level) some pro white organistions.

Hope this doesn't offend in my country its not such an issue heck our largest gang is multi-ethnic, so a mixed race gang can work.....and as I said ultimately I'm all good with whatever anyone comes up with.

As for what their legit business is , I can understand pubs and bars but my personal opinion would be towards maybe a motorcycle custom build business or motor mechanic business that gives them the ability to justify having secured premises.

One other thing in Son's they deal with any drug dealers working Charming(one of the reasons many in Charming tolerate/or support the son's) I'd like to see a similar gang policy if others agree (saying that theres no reason why they can't have some involvement in drug running away from their home town)

Also are we going to have them all be ex military (like the first 9 in son's)or is that unlikely nowadays.

You make some excellent points, eiselmann! As far as the racial makeup of the group, I think its all going to come down to what everyone decides their character is. If someone chooses different they can be worked in. And to me there is no reason they cant have an association or rivalry with a gang primarily made up of another ethnicity. Or not. I imagine there will be a rival gang but they dont necessarily have to be black or latino or whatever. So lets say they own a strip club or two. Some of the fellas work there perhaps. Thats legit. However on the side they are pimping the girls. They could own a motorcycle shop, or a general garage and thats another legit business. I also like the idea of them keeping the drug dealers out of town.

College girls might be a better approach then high school girls, same idea but generally speaking less issue concerning age.

Deals can be made regardless of race, we even see that SoA. I don't think we need to get bogged down on choosing a race. Multi-racial gives us more options.

I'm not against that but with a lot of the other SoA idea's people like we might end up being too similar.

Former military are still joining bike groups/gangs. Characters could have served in Iraq or something. Age depending.

I agree with Primarch that college is the better play than high school.

When it comes to race some SOA charters have more than one race to them. So having more than one race in the charter should work just fine.

I would be fine with a mechanic shop, I definitely like the idea of having a secure place but at least one strip club or something should be there to hide the prostitution.

In regards to using to drug dealing I get we might be to similar to the originals. We can try to find a balance maybe dealing a few types of drugs is aloud but others are banned. It could be a source of tension and drama for the roleplay.

As for the military I can see ex-soldiers joining a charter. They come home find that their is not much work that can pay as well as some of the Charters and it would be a bit less dangerous than other jobs that their skills are wanted for. At least part of the time its less dangerous.

Right, code below! Most of its obvious enough, history really only needs to give the general backstory and essentials. I put appearance in a little block of its own, if you want to use a particularly large image I'd advise a spoiler tag so at least it can be displayed and hidden at will.
Position in Club for Men will include: President (Leader), Vice President (Leader's right hand), Secretary (Money handler), Sergeant at Arms (Top Enforcer/President bodyguard), Man of Mayhem (Non Officer Member), Prospect (On probation period/In-training member)
Positions for the women are much less. There's an Old Lady (Members girlfriend), Sweetbutt (Woman attached to the club, available for sex by all until attached to a single member). Arguably the Old Lady of the President is the "Queen Bee" or "Queen of the Club" this is however largely informal.

Any other questions just post'em here or PM me.

Rupert Daniel Hedderson III ....no one calls him Rupert...he's known as Dan
Man of Mayhem
Male
26years old
Great Falls ,Montana

Appearance:

 
Vehicle of Choice:
Skills:Ex Marine , weapons skills/combat skills. Has no trade skills as such but knows his way around an engine and how a hammer works...has no fear of working hard long hours
Day job:Tow-Truck Driver
Personality:For the most part he's a nice guy, he's  loyal to his friends and the club, he's articulate and intelligent,he can be cool and calculating when dealing with club business however if anyone makes it personal he becomes a vicious maniac who will inflict as much damage as he can to anyone who hurts one of his own 

History: Grew up in a small town the eldest son of two and the second eldest of 5 children. His father was killed by a drunk driver when Dan was 11, fortunately his father's insurance paid off the house and all the debts but times were still tough, as his mother worked three jobs to support the family. When he turned 14 Daniel was offered and accepted a part time job(weekends/ after school) at a local farm , manual stuff , cleaning stables that sort of thing, he wanted to quit school to better help the family but his mother insisted he at least graduate from high school. His older sister got an academic scholarship and was able to attend university (she's now a doctor in L.A), when Dan graduated he also was offered an academic scholarship but decided to join the Marine Corp sending half his money home(enough that his mother was able to drop one of her jobs).

He saw combat in Iraq for a year and when he arrived back in the States he took some leave and headed home, there he found that his younger sister (who was two years younger than him) was not only pregnant but her scum boyfriend was hooking her up with meth, Dan went after him and beat him to a pulp (the boyfriend spent a month in hospital and still walks with a severe limp) Dan was sentenced to 30 months , half way in his prison term his mother died of a heart attack, his two youngestsiblings moved to Boston to live with his Aunt , his younger sister managed to kick the meth habit however she lost her baby, it messed her up and a month after loosing her baby she took a bus to Chicago and disappearred not making any contact with any family after that.

His older sister sold the family house and divided the funds into five, putting one in trust for their sister, when he was released from prison he worked a year on the farm he'd worked on as a teenager fulfilled his parole terms and then brought a Harley and set off for places unknown. At 24 he hooked up with an old friend from the Marines who knew some people who happen to belong to the club..he worked for the club for six months before beginning his year of hell as a prospect and then at the tender age of 25 he became a patched member. He doesn't have an old lady but is getting to the point where he wants one still his good looks and other assets get him plenty of pussy so theres no great rush.

Hope this works anything not right or needs changing just let me know

Her paternal grandparents are abundantly wealthy so she has a trust fund. She cannot touch it until she turns 22, though. She likes to make her own money and has been known to take money for sexual services, but not because of need for money. Spencer just likes sex and getting money for it makes it better. Her dad and brothers are involved in a club outside Savannah with connections to the club where she lives now. It wasnt hard for her to become involved in the local club.

Name: Jake Evans
Position In Club: Vice President
Gender:Male
Age: 28 (Subject to change)
Hometown: Scranton Pennsylvania

Appearance:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

Vehicle of Choice:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Skills: A skilled mechanic, gun and combat skills. Knows his ways around the territory of almost all of the clubs charters (Gained form his time as a Nomad).
Day job: Mechanic and security for club investments.
Personality: Jake is loyal to the club and will do whatever it takes to keep it and his brothers safe. He is usually calm and collected but when needed he is not afraid to fight for what he loves. His loyalty to the club is second only to his loyalty to his sister Riley who he will protect to his last breath if needed.

History: The Evans siblings grew up in an abusive family. Both of their parents were alcoholics and while the father tried to beat his children their mother did her best to protect them until Jake was the age of eight. He attempted to defend his mother while she was protecting him and Riley. His actions worked to protect his mother but in the end it just made it easier for their father to beat Riley and Jake. Their mother tried to keep protecting them for another four months but after that she seemed to pull into herself and started drinking heavily, leaving the children to fend for themselves.

Jake was never able to completely protect his sister from their father. He was able to defend her and take more of the beatings but for every beating he was able to take that was meant for Riley, her mental state suffered. Over the years the beatings got more severe. While both children had to deal with a hard life at home it had almost no effect on their education. Both had marks that were higher than expected for children in their situation.

Six months before Riley’s sixteen birthday their father went into a rage which was nothing new. The outcome of this beating was that four of the fingers on Jakes right hand were broken in multiple places and he was not able to protect his sister. A week later the school nurse was able to take a look at Jake’s hand and sent him to the hospital. Fortunately he came out with full use of his hand but the nerves were damaged which causes him pain, how often or how much is uncertain.

They stuck around until Riley turned sixteen before they dropped off the grid. A few months later they reappeared, enrolled at a school in the town where their uncle owned a bar. From then on they were introduced to the darker side of the town and the local biker club. After graduating from high school Jake joined the local biker gang.
