Christopher Bishop


Age: 26
Nickname: Chris

Current Occupation: Works at the local library, gambles

Hobbies outside of racing:
Reading, Often when he's not at the bars or gambling he can be found in a library or at his book store reading into the late hours. 

Gambling,  Anything to make a quick buck to put towards the things he needs, hes not really good at it and he is somewhat addicted to it.

Appearance/Style Description: Standing 6 foot tall, Christopher seems like a kid to not be on the wrong side of.  In high school he gained his toned etched figure from constant practice on the schools hockey team.  When dressed he is either wearing athletic shorts with a Pittsburgh penguins t-shirt on or in more fashionable sense he dons on nice button down shirts with a nice relaxing pair of jeans that look well with his stylish puma shoes.  For style, he's best recognized as an alternative outlook on life.  Since his brothers death, and his burns, he's held a stoic outlook on life leaning towards depressing. He often keeps shirts on to hide the burn scars as he fears they'll scare others off and they remind him of his pain.
     
Personality: Quiet at first, once he warms up he is a nice guy.  Hard to anger, yet once he's angry its hard to calm him down. His eyes always seem distant, truthfully its because he blames himself for the deaths.

History: Christopher was born the youngest son of two, to a loving family.  His father was salesman for a local fruit market, often trying to branch out to different communities to expand their customer basis.  His mother owned and ran "Bishop's Books" a small downtown bookstore given to her by her own parents when they passed.  Chris's older brother, Steve, was the exact opposite of him growing up.  Where Steve was into cars and hand tools, Chris always found himself helping his mother and reading quiet often.  Steve and Dad would work on the cars if issues arose while Chris would help catalogue new books when they came in.  Life was often a fun endeavor and they seemed the happy go lucky family.  They brothers were never apart despite their differences.  They were best friends, and often Chris would help Steve with school and often got him into reading.  Likewise, Steve helped Chris learn the basics of auto mechanics and tools so he'd be able to survive in life. 

Upon his 17th birthday Steve was going to surprise Chris with his very own muscle car, on that his dad and brother both worked on for him.  As he found out he was ecstatic, and soon the trio set off on customizing and fixing the 1973 Trans Am up.  During this time his brother taught him everything about driving a car properly, and soon he was almost as good.  However, Tragedy struck one night the brothers were working on the beast.  Fire broke out, and Steve was trapped under the metal hunk as it went up.  Chris tried many feeble attempts to save his brother, even as far as scaring his chest and right arm and putting himself in the hospital.  Months passed since the day his brother died, and on two occasions he attempted to take his own life, blaming himself for his brothers death.  One night after work when he just turned 19, more sad news struck him.  He arrived home to find multiple cop cars and an ambulance positioned all about.  He found his mother hysterical in the arms of his uncle, reason being his father ended his life by drinking and over dosing on sleeping pills in a depression. 

The next 5 years of his life consisted of multiple police encounters with him mostly outrunning them.  When he wasn't working in the book store, which was hardly ever anymore, he was either drinking and singing at the local bars or gambling his life savings away.  His life was chaos until he crossed the wrong people with the wrong bets.  After cheating to win, and being beaten to a bloody pulp, he was told to leave the area and never return.  That is when he arrived in Miami from Pittsburgh.  A new life awaited him and when he turned 25 everything seemed to be on the right track.  He was making decent money working at the local library.  He had the old trans am shipped down to him and he began to fix the car up once more in memory of his dead brother and father.  He moved his mother down to Miami to keep her out of harms way and planned on helping her open another book store. 

Yet old habits die hard, and he needed money to do that.  So once more he gambled and raced, and after winning the small time drag he won the upsetting fists of the small crew he beat.  It was something that ended him in the hospital where he met non other then the Doc.

Current Situation: Working at the library and racing/betting to get money to build his brothers gift car and to reopen the bookstore.

Car: 2012 ford fusion bought at auction



Strengths:

Anticipator- Since getting into gambling he's learned a thing or two about reading people, weather on or off the track.  He's good at knowing when people are about to attempt a NOS boost or drift into a secret route.

Straight away - He knows how to take advantage of the straight away in races, understanding that gapping the distance is always a good idea.




Weaknesses:

Depression - Randomly he'll be reminded of the ones he lost and often he'll go on drinking binges or wonder off to be alone.

Non Mechanic - Even though his brother taught him a whole lot about vehicles, he isn't a trained mechanic, so he is not very well able to make his way about an engine, in depth.

Burn marks - The burns on his chest and upper right arm often flare up in excruciating pain and many times they've done such while racing causing him to lose focus and mess up.

Gambling

Drifting - Even though Chris is amazing at the straight away, he could never seem to get the drifting ability down.  Not that he wont do it, nor does he not (because most times he tries) but he looks sloppy and it often ends up costing him time.

Donnie Flair


Age: 19
Nickname: N/A

Current Occupation: Fulltime Street Racer

Hobbies outside of racing: W.I.P

Appearance/Style Description: Donnie's outfits are typically casual. He usually wears a black Harrington jacket which is almost always worn over graphic t-shirts. He usually sports jeans (black or denim) and wears black and grey converses as shoes. Donnie also has several tattoos.
     
Personality: An absolute clown with an irritating and annoying attitude towards life and others. He has sarcastic wit, an answer for everything and an apparent imperviousness to hurtful comments. He is mischievous and has absolutely no problem telling anyone what is on his mind. However, underneath the cocky quips and sarcasm, Donnie isnít as unemotionally untouchable as he makes himself out to be.

History:  Donnie grew up in Ireland, mainly raised by his mother. His father left the pair when he was only 5. Around this time, his father got another woman pregnant which led to the birth of his half-brother. Eventually, his father returned with this conceived notion that the states was the place to be which led the family to move to Seattle, Washington. However, his father left them once again and remained a shadowy figure in his son's life - even leaving Donnie by himself for three hours after treating him to a birthday visit at the mall.

Donnie had some trouble at home when his mother began a serious relationship with her new boyfriend. His goal was to annoy, irritate and push the new man out of the household. It got to the point that his mother eventually threw him out of the house, choosing her boyfriend over her own son. It was around this time that Donnie took an interest in driving. Upon hearing the news, his brother flew down to the states and decided to give him a hand. He gave him some money and more importantly, left him with his 1989 Nissan 240SX.

Due to the appeal of the car, Donnie was slowly beginning to gain the attention of the local street racers. This new found awareness motivated him to get into the racing scene and specialize in drifting. It was then that he met DK, who happened to be around the area. Impressed by his abilities and perseverance, DK decided to take him to Miami to in order to bring out his full potential and maximize profit.

Current Situation:

Car:

1992 Nissan 240SX SE



Strengths:
W.I.P

Weaknesses:
W.I.P

                                                                    Robin Banks


Age: 18
Nickname: Jade, skittles((only by those really close to her)) And kitten((you better have a six pack and nice car if you call her kitten.))

Current Occupation: Flipping ounces.

Hobbies outside of racing: Working on cars and working on Men.

Appearance/Style Description: Robin tends to where skinny or mini skirts. Her hair is almost always down. When you see the picture 90% of you will know who it is if not all of you. When I was looking for a picture I came across one of her and decided it was wonderful. ((Most the time I avoid famous people lol))
     
Personality: Due to the fact that Robin was brought up in the word of cars, drugs, and guns she is always watching her back. She only trust those that have earned it. If you hurt someone on that list then you will have hell to pay for it. She is mostly happy and fun to be around. She is a party girl, always has ben. If you have not had a drink with her, than you are not her friend. And the only thing she likes more than men is cars.

History: Robin was raised by a criminal. Her mother died giving birth to her, But her father has never told her that. All Robin knows is that her mother died when she was young. She grew up in a world of fast cars, drugs, and guns. At the age of 13 she could flip an ounce. When her she was 16 her father rolled his skyline GTR r35 in a street race. That car is not siting in her garage as the cost to fix it is more than she can afford. From that day on Robin has looked after herself.

Current Situation: Trying to make ends meet.

Car: 1990 Cheval SS 454 ((Was stolen))



Strengths: She was raised in a world of boosting cars and racing. Though she is new to racing herself, she knows all the players. Robin knows how to lead a pack, when she gets ahead she knows how to block people out. She is a big risk taker, she always has been. Because of that she has gotten good at getting her baby through tight spots and in places most racers would not go.

Weaknesses: She is still young and newer to the Racing life than most. As a result she can make the wrong decision hen she has to make a split second one. It also causes her to want to prove herself. Causing her to be over eager at times, clouding her judgment. She will not race VS a GTR, as she watched her father die in one.

Clint Shaw


Age: 29
Nickname: Cowboy

Current Occupation: Collusion Repair Specialist (Not formerly trained), Painter, "Gambling Cowboy"

Hobbies outside of racing:  Football, gambling,drinking, shooting, grilling and fucking

Appearance/Style Description: Clint is not the "trendiest" of dressers and is rather "simple" in his taste. Jeans, boots (cowboy) and cowboy shirts or a T-shirt. He has not worn a suit since his parents forced him to go to church when he was a teenager. People have poked fun at his over sized belt buckle, but he takes it in stride, more so when he reveals the back has a bottle opener which makes it easier to pop open some beers and start the good times. He talks with a gravely Texan drawl and shows proper manners (attributed to his mother). It rare to see him without a cowboy hat, some traditions don't die.
     
Personality: Clint works hard and likes to relax hard. When it is time to work he is an efficient machine with a work ethic and discipline not seen in men his age. When work is over he loves a good beer, meal and a football game. He does not like the club scene but does enjoy hitting up a local dive bar for a round of pool (Where he can hustle his fair share of good players) or a local gambling hall or casino. Clint is a "goes with the flow" type guy and is not quick to anger and get crazy but can deliver a mean punch if pushed to far. If there is a rodeo in town you better believe you will find Clint there. Clint does carry a fire arm on him but he has never been forced to draw it on anyone.

History: Clint always wanted a life outside of Bonney Texas, the small town he was born and raised in. His father ran the local car shop/gas station, his mother taught at the local elementary school and he was the town football hero. It was the type of town where everyone knew everyone else's business and the only child could not wait to get away. Clint was born carrying a football (or so his father claimed) and played most his life. His teenage life consisted of girls, football and working for his father at their shop. Unfortunately Clint was never much for mechanic work, he was decent but excelled in another aspect of car work, body repair and paint. His family encouraged him to pursue both football and auto body repair. Unfortunately after an injury in his senior year, his hopes of a life in the NFL came to an end.

With his one escape out of Bonney cut short, he turned to collusion repair. He packed up his truck and left home to make his own way after High school. Clint ended up in Florida, working at a small repair shop as the collusion repair specialist and painter. Despite his lack of formal training, his work was quickly noticed and spread word of mouth. Offers from bigger shops started to come in. A few years of living in Tampa, Florida introduced him to many things the small town "cowboy" knew little about, the most influential being street racing. Many people gave him shit about driving his truck to late night car shows and races but those who hired him to paint and install their (body) kits always spread the word on his expertise.

After a chain of events transpired, he had to get out of town and ended up in Miami, forced to rebuild. His car was totaled and Clint decided to leave the drivers to others. Between his truck and his Harley Dyna, he was content. He still goes to racing events to promote his works and to spectate the races.


Current Situation: Newish to the Miami scene, he is focusing his time trying to find consistent work and establish contacts. He wants to race, but has other pressing financial matters. Hustling poker and billiards only gets a man so far.

Car:

99 Ford Ranger, Work truck/Daily Driver

2013 Harley Davidson V-Rod Custom

Strengths: Body Repair and Paint: While not certified nor formerly trained, Clint keeps up to date with this world of car repair and paint. He is a great pin stripper, air brush artist and everything else in between.

Gambling: In races and sometimes in the casino. Lady luck can be a fickle mistress but her allure is hard to resist. You win some, you lose some.

Marksmen: Clint grew up around guns and likes to go to the range often. He is good with both pistols and rifles, never shot anything high caliber but he is sure he could hit a target if need be.

Steady hand and nerves: While racing he managed to keep his wits even in stressful situations, almost as if time could slow down for him (not really). This carries over to his day to day, not that he has much to worry about but it was blatantly obvious in a race.

Weaknesses:
Gambling: In races and sometimes in the casino. Lady luck can be a fickle mistress but her allure is hard to resist. You win some, you lose some.

Greenhorn: New to the Miami Scene but not the town, Clint is still looking to make contacts and find some people to have a beer with over at his favorite bar.

Benched: Clint doesn't have a car at the moment but that doesn't stop him from going to the races.

Overconfident: (Racing) - "Yea I can get through..." His last words before he totaled his car. Despite steel nerves and hand, he sometimes lets his overconfidence, cloud his judgement. There is a reason he doesn't have a car at the moment.
