Looking for someone to play the female protagonist in a Resident Evil RP.
The premise is that you are single person, stranded on a beautiful tropical island with no means to contact the outside world, after your boat got into a storm and was attacked by a strange creature on top of that, capsizing and sinking.
As if that was not enough, it soon becomes clear that there are strange, monstrous threats on this island, as well as other survivors, few of whom are likely to be on your side... or even willing to ignore you.
On the island, anything goes - you could be a hero, you could be a villain or you could just try to survive and escape - or maybe you'll end up just a helpless victim or even infected and mutated into a monster... if not worse.
Some of the main groups and persons are:Olufemi's Revolutionaries
These men from West Africa are lead by the cruel, if amicable warlord Olufemi, who lead them on an exodus from their home country in search of a weapon that would allow him to fulfill his dreams of conquest.
Teamwork: Lacking, but functional
Threat Level: BigCode Orpheus
An elite group of mercenaries specializing in retrieving valuable packages of all kinds from B.O.W. infested territory. They are led by Agent Sigma, a near-emotionless woman of nearly superhuman skill and drive.
Size: Very Small
Threat Level: ExtremeGuerison
A French pharmaceutical company, they have set up a laboratory on this island. Their designs are unclear, as is their role in the current happenings on this island.
Size: Very Large
Equipment: Above Average
Threat Level: UnknownSurvivors
Several small groups of survivors of various origins, these are less of an organized group and more of several independants with no other allegiance.
Size: Very Large
Equipment: Below Average, if not Non-Existent
Teamwork: Very Little
Threat Level: SmallE-Virus
The victims of this virus mutate in the most various ways, though it usually involves some manner of animalistic aspect entering their physiology. The origin and purpose of this virus, if any, is unknown; nor does anyone know if it was created on this island or simply unearthed. Its victims roam the island, attacking any and all who are not yet infected.
Teamwork: None Known
Threat Level: UltimateLaughin' Jack
This person - it's not clear whether it's a man or a woman, it's "name" is merely a nickname given to it by the other occupants of the village - roams the island dressed in a floor-length red raincoat with a deep hood and a gas mask. He usually only observes others, often from very nearby without being noticed until very late - at which point he gives off a mad, inhuman laugh (to which he owes his nickname) and flees faster than anyone can pursue.
Some of the survivors believe that there is more than one Laughin' Jack, as the creature moves would need to move at beyond human speeds to appear in all the locations it does over such a short time as it usually does (once, it was observed by a group on the North East end of the island, while another allied group saw it at the very opposite end of the island mere minutes later).
Size: One (?)
Equipment: Simple Cloathes (?)
Threat Level: Unknown
And beyond even that lies the great mystery of this island, which has drawn so many different people onto it.

You're an utter addict to new experiences, especially the most extreme ones - like scuba diving in the middle of nowhere with barely any equipment, or climbing dangerous cliffsides and mountains without aid; if it's dangerous, you love it - some might call you a slut for danger, and they wouldn't be too far off, as the promise of such is enough to get you to do pretty much anything.
A short while ago, you were shark diving without any protective gear apart from your wetsuit and a taser - but suddenly, all the sharks fled. As you returned to your boat, you found it in the throws of a storm, with your two crewmates fighting to keep it afloat. Before you knew it, something big
hit the boat and it sank along with the three of you, only for you to wake alone on the shore of a strange island.

You're the daughter of a billionaire businessman, and you have never wanted for anything. You have it all, looks, brains, riches, friends - only nothing that really matters to you, which is why you drown yourself in parties, alcohol, harder drugs and meaningless sex. Before ending up on the island, you were on a jacht your father gave you for your twenty-first birthday, along with all your "friends" enjoying the good life - in fact, you were in the middle of a drug- and sex-orgy when something hit your boat, capsizing it. You fell and hit your head, bad, blacking out.
An indeterminate amount of time later, you wake up alone, naked and dizzy from a headwound and the last remnants of the drugs you took before.
