     Some people are born artists, speed junkies, criminals, or car fanatics; but there are a select few that are born all of these things and more. In Downtown Seattle's night-scene these people are on the prowl, living life as large as they can - while occasionally trying to stay under the radar. Seattle has a thriving night life, and cars play no small part in that. They are more than just a means of transportation, they are a statement - from how it looks to how fast it flies.

     The resident Chinese Triad have a strong foothold in the major port-city and have a lot of criminal businesses operating withing it's confines. One of these business is the buying and selling of stolen cars. The Chinese have many freelance criminals that they hire to acquire these vehicles - but for the most exotic and difficult to obtain rides, they always call on one specific crew. Lately however, the pressure the Chinese have been putting on these stellar thieves has been less than fair and they're getting tired of putting up with the bullying by the Chinese Mafia.

General Guidelines

    Player collaboration is not just suggested, but is required, when working out each character's history. This is due primarily to the fact that all characters in and around the crew have known each other for most of their lives. The Antagonist characters may - and should - collaborate with each other when it comes to controlling all Mafia/Gang NPCs (depending on which route they want to go) as well as collaborating with the Crew leaders when it comes to major plot movements or Crew character injuries/captures/etc.

We're looking for a couple more mafia members to keep things interesting. The Crew and Mafia work together - though there has been quite a bit of friction lately as the Crew is getting tired of the increased demand and pressure from the Chinese without getting any better pay for their work.

The two remaining spots are the Mafia Driver and Mafia Hitman (or Hitwoman that is). The hitman is also a driver, and although their primary roles are enforcing triad requests and orders for car lists - they are also racers that compete in all the local organized events for money. They interact with the crew fairly often. The hitman in particular has an interesting role making hits on people who haven't come through on their end of a deal. One or all of the crew members might be getting put on that list soon.

Hope that helps.

Alright, everything bookmarked this time!



关强军
Kwan Qiang Jun
Mr Kwan

Age: 50
Gender: Male
Orientation: Secretly homosexual
Position/Title: 489, Dragon Head of Seattle
Specialty: Organized crime

Personality: Ruthless in his approach to business and crime, but quite a gentleman in all other ways. Doesn't lose his temper and always exuding an aura of power and control.

History: Kwan Qiang Jun had to work hard to get where he was today. A lifetime of serving the Bamboo Union, the largest of Taiwan's triads, has payed off in his control of the Gateway Triad, one of the most secretive and ruthless criminal organizations in Seattle. None can say that he didn't deserve it.

While still young he was initiated into the Bamboo Union for his weapon-smuggling from mainland China. He realized early that to become big and powerful in an organization like a triad one must be strong and merciless as well as quick and risktaking. Through the dangerous operation he ran from the mainland he became known as a reliable source for all things deadly, be it blades, poisons or firearms. Once he was captured and tortured by the communists, resulting in the loss of his left middle finger, but through wits and a talent for escape artistry he managed to kill his captors and escape back to Taiwan. Even so he kept the operation going until he later left the island for America.

He had only just turned 21 when he was promoted to be advisor to the Mountain Master of the whole Bamboo Union, the infamous Chen Chi-li, and from there he grew considerably in power. He helped form the ties to the Kuomintang Nationalist Party and forming the triad's political support of the party through illegal means and financial feeding. He accompanied Chen Chi-li to California in 1984 and assisted him in the preparations to murder Henry Liu who had angered the Kuomintang with anti-nationalist writings in the USA. When Chen returned to Taiwan Kwan remained in California to try and clean up the traces. As Chen were put on trial in Taiwan he decided to remain permanently however and quickly took control of the Bamboo Union based in California, just a handful of men and their associates.

Through ruthless tactics and an alliance with the Baja California Cartels, Kwan wrestled control from the other triads through a bloody and violent gang war throughout the 90's. While still affiliated with the Bamboo Union, they recognized Kwan's sovergnity and in the early 2000's he united the California triads under the Gateway, the secret head of the conglomerate. Following 9/11 he began smuggling weapons across the border to Mexico, answering an enormous demand that followed when most crime organizations wouldn't dare smuggle any weapons because of heightened security. In turn he recieved a steady flow of drugs to distribute in California.

His activities had drawn the ire of the mainland Chinese triads and a coalition of Italian and Ukrainian criminal elements finally succeeded in wrestling California out of Kwan's hands, not without a frivolous flow of Chinese weaponry. He was apprehended by the police on charges not his own, but constructed by his enemies. He only barely avoided being sent back to Taiwan for sentencing. Luckily huge amount of money buys great lawyers and the loyalty of any judge and jury. Seeing no point in pursuing further war in California he moved, taking up place in Seattle. Once more he was successful in taking full control of the city, down to its very roots. While he himself have nothing to do with the crimes in the city, his eyes see all and his words direct likewise. Through thugs, pawns and contacts with the Bamboo Union in Vancouver, he now controls an empire twice as strong as the one he had in California.

While cars and racing had always been an interest of his he never even considered doing it himself. So when the illegal street racing began in the late 00's he instead began sponsoring prominent racers and crews. While it is mostly a hobby of his, the cars and drugs that these crews goes through isn't and he would be damned if he let anyone screw around his playground all too much. As such many an arrogant crew have found themselves losing more than a race when they have crossed interests with Mr Kwan.

Physical Description: Quite tall for an asian with his 6'1", he still feels the need to wear shoes with enhanced soles. Not as much insecurity as he likes being taller than most. Always wear some sort of formal business suit when outside his compound, but in privacy he wears more traditional clothing. Missing his left middle finger.

Extra Info: Married with two children. While he doesn't desire his wife sexually, they are on good terms and keep up the facade. Highly proficient in a large number of different weapons. Strangely enough he has never had a drivers licence at all.

badass Mafia lieutenant reporting!

Tipene 'Tip' Rurik

Age: 37
Gender: Male
Orientation: Heterosexual
Position in Club: Mafia Lieutenant/Driver (possibly personal driver to Mr Kwan, who has no license)
Specialty: Street driving, auto mechanics, hand to hand combat (boxing, combat sambo)
Personality: Quiet and controlled, Tip sees much and says little.  Ruthless when the occasion calls for it, he understands that violence leads to attention and he would much rather solve a dispute through diplomacy.  It's usually simpler than making bodies disappear.  He takes his responsibilities to Mr Kwan very seriously.
History:
  The son of a disgraced Russian soldier and an American mechanic, Tipene grew up poor and hard.  Academically average but physically gifted, his only shot at higher education would have been a sports scholarship... But working for the Triad changed everything.  First as a messenger, then as muscle, eventually as a courier, Tip found that the relatively easy money and access to the finer things in life appealed more than any sort of continuing scholastic venture.  So after graduating high school, he devoted himself entirely to working his way up the ranks of the Gateway Triad.  Much to his surprise, the higher he went the more he realized that his lack of education was limiting his options.  So he returned to the world of acadamia and spent several years earning a general business degree and then a masters of Accountancy to better track the money in deals he was responsible for.  His meticulous eye for detail and willingness to accept blame if something went wrong on his watch along with his proven loyalty eventually landed him near the illustrious Mr Kwan himself, and Tip has been very careful to ensure he stays there.
Physical Description:  6'5, 280 lbs.  Typically in jeans and a loose, comfortable top if not working, dressed in custom-tailored suits if attending to business.
Tips personal car

Tips working ride

I imagine the 2012 Vette probably has had the body panels reinforced and the windows replaced with bulletproof glass if Tip is Mr Kwan's personal driver.

Just so everyone knows, if we dont get any immediate bites for more mafia members, I think we will still officially relaunch Monday or Tuesday. Weve got plenty of players and enough to work with right now. I will get the details to you all on the starting race setting in the next couple of days. Oh, and we will be rolling dice for race winners pre-launch. I think its a fair way to decide the winner. After the winner is determined then it will be easy for all of us to RP in a way that creates that outcome. Does that work for everyone?

Its all yours.

Just one I think. But you can have connected NPC characters that perform actions in your main character's post. This is a small game, hence only a handful of crew members and even less mafia (since theyll be using NPC baddies to throw at us for action from time to time).

From what I know we need another Triad apart from you, then we'll be set. A hitman/woman to be exact. Can't expect my priced driver to go around killing people now, can I?

Misaki "Misa" Ogata
Age: 22

Gender: Female

Orientation: Straight

Position/Title: Triad's Best Racer

Specialty: Racing, Skilled with a knife (for combat if needed), very charismatic, striking good looks

Personality: Misaki can be a little shy. But once she gets behind the wheel of a car, you better watch yourself. She has an attitude to match her looks. Once she gets to know someone, she's very friendly.

History: Misaki was born to a Japanese mother and a Chinese father. At a very young age, she displayed a keen interest in cars of all sorts. Both of her parents were very wealthy, but Misaki never had anything handed to her. She always had to work for what she wanted.

When Misa turned 16 and got her license, she became friends with someone who introduced her to the world of underground street racing. She demonstrated exceptional talent behind the wheel, winning race after race. Extremely few have been able to match her skills.

Not long after her debut in street racing, she was approached by Tipene Rurik and recruited into the Triads. However, she does not know that a heavy influence as to why she was recruited was because her father owes a debt to their leader, Mr. Kwan. Therefore, Misa's skills made her a highly valuable asset for Kwan.

Physical Description: Misaki is quite curvy and is blessed with a voluptuous chest area. She stands at 5' 3" but often wears heels. Her hair is a bit longer than what is shown in the picture. She often wears revealing clothing to emphasize her good looks, and has an extremely confident walk.

Extra Info: She often uses her good looks to her advantage. Not many men are able to resist her charm and she can easily manipulate them if she so chooses.

Only the profiles that have been posted so far are up - the rest of them are currently getting revamped/tweaked from the previous version of the game. Hopefull Mr. Kwan's and Tip's  profiles should be enough to get you started. The only slot left is the Mafia hitman position - so if your character's BG interlinks with anyone's - it will probably be one of their's. The rest of ours should be up sometime soon. I'll be booting up the Character Profile thread for people to post into shortly.

Hmmm... The game is built around the idea of the Mafia and the Crew going at each other, competing in races, as well as heavy friction between them during deals that keep getting more and more unfair. Independent characters might not get to see much interaction with the crew - except in races.

But go ahead and PM me your character idea and I'll take a look.
