Alright, I finished these back in June, I figure I'll post up some of them.
There are still some things to be taken care of, like henchman and shizzle, but basically, this should cover most of the basics, and I'm feeling confident about them. Once again, absolute thanks to Jefepato for being an awesome proof-reader.
Anyone think they might have some interest in a game like this? :-p Obviously, the characters would be pre-created, but you'd be given freedom to develop them in whatever direction you want.

Richard was born in one of the rougher areas of Quiet Meru. Even in Meru, there are still areas where there is little law, and Richard was a member of one of the small gangs that roamed throughout the city, until he was fifteen, when he was taken under the wing of an Arbiter, Feet of Gum. His mother was unmarried, and the arbiter served as a father figure for him in many ways. At the age of eighteen, Gumshoe entered the Blessed Arbiter Academy, and graduated with high grades in his physical classes, his leadership and inspiration skills making up for his rather inexplicable tendency to miss evidence. (His willingness to take on the Dragon-Blooded Martial Arts instructor, and give him one of the better fights with a non-exalted in his life, played a heavy part in this.)
Richard quickly distinguished himself in hunting down criminals, and quickly made the acquaintance of Keen Edge of the Worthy Headsman, an extremely quick-rising Solar who had joined the Arbiters as a prosecutor of the rising number of Exalted criminals, and he quickly became friends. Heís known the Solar for eight years now, and he quickly distinguished himself in being a useful asset for the Arbiters.
The defining moment of his life came during what should have been a standard enough investigation. Richard was about 30 years old, and a small drug-smuggling cartel in the Blessed Isle was distributing the insanely addictive Five Crystals, and during investigation, a raid when south, and Feet was killed by a pair of Dragon-Blooded brothers who had been running the cartel. Richard would have been next, but he took them on, and in the midst of the battle, he Exalted.
Heís now found himself thrown into an entirely new experience- being truly important in Creation. Heís now one of the most important detectives in the Deliberative, and has found a new level of connection with his old idol, Edge. Heís only been Exalted for a short time, but heís taken himself to new levels, and heís done fairly well in helping the justice system of Creation, although heís noticed a disturbing increase in the crimes that are being committed by Exalted- both Terrestrial, and Celestial.
Personality: For the last fifteen years, youíve devoted your life to finding justice in the world. Youíve found a bit less than you wanted to, but youíve found it in the police department, youíve found it in your idol Keen Edge, and youíve found that- and a bit more- in your young and exceedingly energetic Dragon-Blooded subordinate, Margaret, of the Byrde Clan. You may have an unfortunate tendency to find the wrong people at fault, but considering that your specialty is Exalted criminals, thereís a certain level of this being a given. Unlike most Dawns, youíre not as much of a war sort of person, but having led teams of Sentinel Armor-clad units during in-city combat, youíve become fairly proficient in street-to-street combat.
