[Setting] Post-WWII Chicago


World War II has ended. It's the age of pinups, rouged lips, and the fantasy of life beyond the shadow of war, and beneath the dawn of a nuclear age. Great hope seizes those who seek to define the new 'normal' life, and forge their fortunes. Yet, darkness still rests in the corners, beyond the cast of this bright, burgeoning era.

The wealthy and connected Burnett family is set in the midst of this hopeful time. Rooted in Chicago, they move in posh circles, with their patriarch, Arthur Burnett, leading a charge to establish a dynasty that will become an American institution. But, a great evil plagues the family. One by one, without seeming rhyme or reason, Burnett women begin to die gruesome deaths. Authorities are baffled, and operate with zero leads as the number of murders within the extended family grow to seven over the course of one year. Public interest is high, and panicked frenzy begins to take hold.

Arthur Burnett takes matters into his own hands, hiring investigators and personal guards for each of his immediate family. These guards are with their charges always, ordered and expected to give their very lives for those they protect. It has been weeks since the last murder, and tensions run high as the police continue to founder at the investigation. The darkness is close, and closing in again. It can be felt in the very air, and time is not on the side of the women that carry Burnett blood within their veins...

Our story would begin with YC, a daughter of Arthur Burnett, being taken under the protection of MC. Throughout our story we would tangle with romance, horror, lust, mystery, and death, all rolled within a nice blanket of dark fantasy. I hope this tale to be open and intriguing, with both partners contributing to the world, and the depth of the story we're creating.

If you're interested, I'd very much love to hear from you! Ideas and thoughts are welcome!
