Sample NPCs, for the format, and to give people some ideas possibly:
Name: Joe Rawley
Nickname: None, but he usually goes only by his last name
Hair Color/Style: Blonde, Crew Cut
Eye Color/Eyewear: Blue/None
Physical Description: Joe is a physically imposing man, solidly built, but not to the point of freakishness. He isn't the biggest dog in the yard, but he carries himself in a manner that demands respect. His features could be described as All American, save for the slightly roughed up look of them. Still, when he wants to be, he can seem downright boyish.
Years At Blackrose: 5
Title: Head of Administration
History: Joe grew up in rural America, on a farm that had been managed so poorly by his grandparents that it was good for nothing much more than growing dirt. Hard times for the family, combined with an abusive father, drove him to be an angry young man. Despite being one of the smallest boys in the area, he was a scrapper, and he would have eventually landed in jail if a Marine recruiter hadn't come to his High School and spun him stories of glory and honor.
As it goes, those stories were bullshit. He recruited, and passed through boot camp, but after three years in his life in the Corps was going a whole hell of a lot of nowhere. Dissatistfied, and smart enough to realize being bitter wouldn't do a hell of a lot for him, he quit. The Corps had done two things for him, it had busted his ass into shape, and it had taught him how to hold his own. So he took those assets and he signed on as a prison guard.
He was transferred to Blackrose in his first year in the business, and placed in Administration. Proving to have a canny resolve, and sharing a military background with the Chief Guard of the time, Harmind Tennison, Joe was to be Tennison's replacement when he became Warden. But Joe inherited one thing from his father: a hell of a short fuse. Allegations of abusive activities towards female in-processing inmates led to media scrutiny, and his deportment towards the press caused Tennisson to have to name an alternate as his replacement, or suffer media fallout. While he was placed in charge of Administration as a consolation, Joe is still quite angry at his former friend for putting politics over comradarie.
Sexual Preference: Hetero
Sexual Limits: No Scat, Watersports, or anything involving gore
Name: Tyler Polk
Hair Color/Style: Black/Long, with a bedraggled beard
Eye Color/Eyewear: One green, one blue
Physical Description: A monsterously large man with ripcord muscles and broad shoulders. Polk tends to slouch, as if he is ashamed of how large he is. His hair never quite seems washed, and he always has the smell of stale sweat on him.
Sentance: Death by Lethal Injection for Murder
Time Served: 4 total, in two visits
History: In 2005 Tyler Polk arrived in Blackrose to serve a ten year sentance for sexual assault. His trial had been a sensational one, with allegations that he was a repeat offender, but with no solid evidence linking him to the no less than twenty rapes he was suspected of committing. Old habits proved hard to control, and after raping one inmate and attempting to rape a female guard, Tyler was placed in Solitary confinement, where he remained for the better part of two years. It was at this time that his lawyers managed to uncover evidence of planted evidence on the part of investigators, and called for a revokation of the sentance against their client.
If only they knew the monster they were about to free. The two years in solitary confinement had caused Polk to re-write reality as he saw it, and in an attempt to make ammends for his crime he sought out and kidnapped the last woman he had raped before going to prison. For a month he held her, repeatedly raped her, and finally killed her. There was no investigation this time. He walked right into the nearest police precinct, stark naked, with the strangled woman in his arms.
Sentanced to Death Row at Blackrose, Tyler was once again confined to life alone, as he was the first inmate slated to be executed at the prison.
There are whispers amongst the general population. Women are told to stay in line, for if they don't, and they land in solitary, their cell might just get a visit from the man they call Trouble. Polk was once a favorite method of punishment by Warden Harris. Who knows if Tennison is depraved enough to unleash him.
Sexual Preference: Heterosexual
Sexual Limits: No Scat, Watersports, or gore.
