Offline Moon Hound HatiTopic starter

Name: Liam Jeager
Gender: Male
Date of Birth: June 5th
Age: 29
Occupation: Electrician
Place of Residence: Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, New York

Appearance: Tall and lean, his rugged and unshaven appearance, combined with the stare of his icy blue eyes, can come over as imposing or intimidating. With his short brown hair and simple taste in clothing, he is not one to immediately stand out in a crowd. Clothing of neutral or dark tones that fits and doesn't shred or gets caught easily on anything is preferred over the latest fashion rags.

Hair: Brown
Skin: Fair
Eyes: Icy blue
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 205lbs
Body Build: Lean with a set of well trained and maintained muscles, but is far from what most would call bulky.

Personality: A real go getter, he likes to take charge and take action. Sitting around his rear end is not something he likes to do much if there's more useful things that need doing     and there usually are. Once he sets his mind to something, he's willing to put in the hundred and ten percent required to get it done. Though a kind soul, Liam has a penchant for being snarky and sarcastic at times. Despite that, though, he is generally very positive in his mindset and always tries to look for new opportunities and chances.

Postive Personality Traits: Go getter, helpful, dedicated
Negative Personality Traits: Stubborn, easily irritable when things aren't going his way, can be careless
Motivations: Right now his main drive is to keep making enough money to pay for his cancer struck sibling's chemo therapy.
Outlook: Liam his an optimist, generally. When one road leads to a dead end he always at least tries to look for another     though actually finding it is a whole different story.
Sexuality: Straight

Interests/Hobbies: In his free time he likes to mess about in the toll shed, playing around half broken devices he scavenged from garage sales and other such places. Years of tinkering, in combination with his job as electrician, have given him quite a capable skillset when it comes to repairing and maintaining most electrical devices. Having been bullied during his childhood, when he was rather short and thin of frame, he had taken up kickboxing during his early teens. These days he still practices it at least a few hours a week to keep himself in shape. Eating take-out three days a week, after the long shift, isn't exactly helping you keep in shape, after all!

Likes: Findling with electrical devices, kick boxing, action movies, being active and doing fulfilling useful tasks.
Dislikes: Needlessly lazing about doing nothing, sour food, pigeons.

History: Liam Jeager was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. The oldest son in a family of blue-collar workers, he grew up with principals such as appreciating hard work and always trying your best. Bullied during his childhood, he took up lessons in kick boxing from an instructor that lived down the street from his family. It helped boost his confidence considerably, as well as whip him into shape.

Having always had a knack for tinkering with the half broken electrical devices lying around the house, it was only natural for the young man to take up an apprenticeship as an electrician after finishing high school. Learning the tricks and trades under the guidance of a small, but tightknit local electrical service company, he was later enlisted full time once he had completed his apprenticeship.

Liam spent his years falling in out of love while living on his own, not too far from his elderly home. Unfortunately, only a few months ago his only younger sibling and sister was diagnosed with lung cancer; a monster created by her own excessive smoking. After having her move in with him in order to care for her better, the kind older brother started working extra shifts in order to pay the bills the chemo therapy would produce. Unfortunately the news of the wonder vaccine's lethal side effects began spreading just after the therapy began producing some positive results.

Equipment: His toolbelt and a backpack containing: a seperate multitool, a bottle of water, a half eated boxed lunch, some spare tools like a hammer and plyers, and his cellphone.

Personality:

There are few things that she has an overly happy outlook on. Most people have a 'once you get to know' section... This is not the case for Quin Once you meet her, you pretty much know her. Or at least what she wants you to know. Even though she tells it as it is, she is a very clever, and smart kind of woman. She likes to tell people up front what is on her mind. If something is bugging her, she will tell you, and if something isn't being done right in her mind, she will tell you to change it. Even though she has got this kind of hard personality, it can be good for those who come to be close to her. Once a friend to Quin people find they have gained a very strong and supportive and dedicated friend. Because of this she has a lot of friends she can call upon for help whenever she needs help, and she is always there to return the favor.

Doesn't give up, strong-willed, easy to get along with overall.

Can be too strait forward, reveals her mind too easily, and is sometimes to sneaky.
Motivations:
She wants to travel with her new found dance company, everywhere. Also, to see her brother again.
Outlook:
She isn't exactly optimistic or pessimistic, she see's things how they are and accepts that.
Sexuality:
Strait

Interests/Hobbies:
Dancing, driving, tattoo's, art, music, math. Mostly dancing though.

Likes:
Quin really enjoys driving. She enjoys a good meal, no matter what kind of food it is. Enjoys ice cream and spicy things the most. Along with this, she loves her liquor. Doesn't watch too much TV, but does enjoy movies. She is usually watching a movie while reading. Reading is another thing she enjoys a lot. And then there is dancing, all kinds of dancing. But, mostly she dances hip-hop.
Dislikes:
Doesn't like people who hide everything to themselves. That's basically it, as she is open to almost everything.

History:
Her life wasn't that different than most, in her eyes. Her father and mother had died when she was six, and then her uncle took her in. In most eyes this wasn't too odd, and to her she accepted it as normal. Her cousin became her sibling, and she grew close to him like an older brother. They stood up for each other throughout the years, and they never let the other one back down to anything. Their life was normal, except that they traveled a lot. Not just the normal moving every couple years. Instead it was every couple of months. She never knew what her uncle did, and she never really cared to ask. Eventually she found out that he was a big member in some gang and that is why they moved around. She is from Russian dissent, and it's one reason she has always wanted to go back and visit. Her uncle had moved them across the oceans once to Russia for a year, moving around within the country. But she was only about 10-11 years old, and doesn't remember much from the time she was there.
When they moved back from Russia she was still moving around a lot, mostly city to city. Because of this, she never saw herself as a small-city or country kind of girl. She was strictly a city girl, and never tried to portray anything else. She wouldn't be able to sleep without all sounds of the city moving around her. Now that she was a little older her dancing was becoming more and more part of her life. When she was fourteen her brother/cousin went into the army, and she's only seen him a few times after that between his tours. He is due to come home for good in a few months. When he went away the first time she started dancing with a crew that was running the streets where she lived. This didn't really make her uncle too happy. So, naturally, he moved them. But, again, she fell into a new dance crew on the streets and perfected her own style. But the crew she fell into with had also made her a driver, and she took the skills to a new level.
When she was sixteen they finally kind of settled down, at least for the longest times that she had ever known. When she got in with another crew, her uncle was actually fine with it as it wasn't a rival to his own organizations. They lived in Miami with there own respective organizations for about 13-14 months. The dance crew she was with didn't really seem to be too bad or too illegal, but to her dismay it was. They were running things through the inter-workings of the city and she didn't want to be a part of that kind of organization. She had drove too many bad people, and too many bad things across the city and beyond too many times. A particular bad moment happened when she confronted the ring leader about just dancing and competing, instead of trying to run drugs and other illegal things. He didn't agree with her, and only a few others had her back. There was a huge fall-out and she ended up being pretty badly injured, unsure if she'd ever dance or drive again.
Her uncle moved her out on her 17th birthday and took her as far away as his own organizations could, to LA. They wanted to leave the country, but couldn't because of her uncles job. So, they settled in LA for a few months and then moved to Milwaukee for a few months. When she turned 18 she moved to New York to get proper dance training figuring the driving wasn't too safe, finally able to get away from her uncle. They didn't accept her too easily, but she got in with a dance crew and then she was recruited into a dance company, a proper one, when she was just over 19 years old. She had traveled with them for over two years, but they let her go when they found out she was dancing with a street crew on the side. Now, she dances in a crew and has gone back to driving. She is trying to get back into a good dance company, but now this has happened.

 
Equipment:
She has a medium sized back that she carries with her all the time. Inside are number of normal things and some different things: eyeliner, red lipstick, two packs of marlboro menthol hundreds (there was a sale), ipod, headphones, shirt, shorts, ballet shoes (as she is wearing sneakers), pens, small notebook, a book, cell phone and charger, keys and then a ball of yarn.

Name: Corina A. Selks
Gender: Female
Date of Birth: June 1st
Age: 26
Occupation: Ecologist
Place of Residence: Poughkeepsie, New York

Appearance:
Corina has a runner’s build with long legs, a nice posterior but not real curvy. She keeps in fantastic shape swimming with a strong body but not the same as when she was in college. Her wavy, somewhat curly, red hair reaches the bottom of her shoulder blades and is often pulled back into a bun or ponytail. Her skin is pale with a few random tan lines on her shoulders (from swim suits) and her wrist from her watch. But is relatively pale with a few freckles on her shoulders and arms.

Hair: Long red and wavy.
Skin: Pale with some freckles dotted about.
Eyes: Brown
Height: 5’9”
Weight: 141 lbs
Body Build: Gently muscled but generally slim and slender.

Personality: She is generally easy to get along with. She has a great business mind and a drive to be the best at what she does. Her “accident” turned her a bit negative and a little less social but she still knows how to have a good time. She hates just sitting still and doesn’t understand how people can just sit there and watch tv or play video games for hours. She can work well with others as long as everyone does their duty.
Postive Personality Traits: hard worker, organized, trusting
Negative Personality Traits: bitter, a little high strung, impatient
Motivations: She works hard to stay in shape and teaching. Helping a younger generation with protecting the environment and helping youth swim and dive programs.
Outlook: She would say she is a realist. Her friends would call her a pessimist but her work calls her logical. She understands empirical data and can’t believe in the power in positive thinking. You don’t get things if you “will them” to happen you have to work to get it.
Sexuality: Straight

Interests/Hobbies: Swimming, diving, gardening, cooking, yoga, pilates.

Likes: Being active, exercising, stretching, reading, gardening, action movies, coaching.
Dislikes: Laziness, whining, sitting at a desk, doctors.

History:
Corina is a smart girl that had a lot going for her in her younger years. Since she was little she was a champion swimmer and diver and excelled in school. Her family life was rather normal, her parents worked hard and she knew they didn’t always have a ton of money. She grew up knowing that if you work hard, you will get what you want out of life. A statement that she lived by. In high school, she had friends but spent most of her time swimming, diving and training. Her coaches told her she would be able to get a scholarship (something her parents were also hoping for). She made straight A’s and was scouted by many schools for their athletics programs. Because she spent so much time studying, training, or sleeping she was not the most social with anyone that didn’t swim.

Her senior year she accepted a scholarship to Cornell University to be on their swim and dive team and she quickly proved to be one of the best. She studied Environmental Studies with minors in business and biology. Corina believed in helping keep forests and plant life in an ever-growing industrial age. She continued to swim, and joined the ecology club at school. Things were going great until her senior year.

It was the qualifying meet for nationals and she was practically guaranteed a spot. It was her final year and she could taste the gold medal. Corina was never cocky and always kept herself realistic, knowing that nothing was EVER handed to you. She went to do her dive but as she climbed the ladder her hand slipped causing her to crash to the ground, dislocating and destroying her left shoulder and breaking a few fingers and giving her a concussion. Her dreams were dashed – everything she had been told she could achieve with hard work was gone.

Once she could no longer swim at the same level, with national and international dreams gone, she became a bit more bitter about life. Floating through her last semesters she graduated with honors but her general life view of had become more pessimistic than it had before. Once she graduated she got a job working for an environmental agency that often worked with the EPA. Her job was fine and she was often trapped indoors at a desk going over reports and paperwork and is often asked to go into the city for conferences and meetings. In her spare time she keeps active running, swimming (as much as she can without hurting her shoulder), yoga, pilates, and other strength and flexibility classes. She also coaches a local youth swim and dive team.

Equipment: (She will be in the city for a conference at the beginning so she’ll have things in a suitcase in her hotel room) What she actively carries with her in her hand bag: wallet, cell phone, lipbalm, protein bar, eye drops, lipstick, hair pins and ties, swiss army knife, water bottle, and sunglasses.

Edited the roles list to include the new characters (including my own). Looks like we've got a group of seven; three male and four female. No clue what happened to DTW or if he's still in. Deadline is tomorrow at the latest, so we'll see. It's all good either way, as we have some nice diversity going on regardless, both in gender and roles. :)

Just for  reference. What time? As in 12 am tonight or later?

Cars are alright, but don't expect them to get far with it in (certain parts of) the city (especially after day one... muhahaha   err, yeah), so don't get too attached to your tin can on wheels. :P

To be honest, when I posted the idea I wasn't expecting too much interest, so having half a dozen people actively participating is nice.

Just for  reference. What time? As in 12 am tonight or later?

Midnight, my time, at the very latest. Right now it's almost 2:15AM, if you don't know, so that's less than 22 hours to go.

Right. Closing up shop as far as recruitment and acceptance of character sheets is concerned. Sorry, DTW, but I think I've been patient enough. With the post frequency I'm looking for in this group game it wouldn't have worked out anyway, if you couldn't even meet the deadline for the sheets. Let's be honest. O:)

Anyways, moving on. I'll set up an OOC sometime this evening so that you lot can talk a bit and whatnot before we start of and the IC will probably be up either tomorrow or Saturday. After posting the IC I'll post in the OOC what the basic idea is for characters to start out. Prepare yourselves for DAY 0, ladies and gentlemen. :)
