Burden City is addictive. ;)

'Tis true. And it's surprising because it took no effort whatsoever to create it.

It took a genius. *strokes Lady Reign's ego...and possibly other areas of her body*

But it does take a bit to keep it running. So it's good that we have a decent team. And by decent, I mean amazing. :)

Hi there :-) I don't know if you're still accepting characters, but I have to submit one for approval because this is just a perfect game for her...

Act I. The Profile
Birth Name: Alexandra Petronac
Name: Alex Peters
Alias: Shadow
Age: 27
Sex: female
Orientation: Heterosexual with some bi tendencies
Profession: Museum Curator by day/ cat burglar by night
Role: Criminal
Alignment: Neutral

Act II. The Diagnostics
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 135 lbs
Hair: Dark brown hair to mid shoulder blade
Eyes: warm, dark brown
Skin: fair skin, very subtle tan
Birth Mark: none 
Tattoos: a black panther crawling up between her shoulderblades
Distinguishable Mark/Scar: wears a black mask when on a job

Act III. The Dossier
Likes: A little rough play, nothing that causes severe pain or injury. "Bite me, scratch me, hold me so tight it hurts, pin me to the wall/tree/car/whatever, kiss me too hard, grope me too roughly... It's okay if my lip bleeds or I get bruises, or your nails or teeth leave marks... Just know that if you go there, you'll be getting scratched back." She doesn't do the "oh I'm so weak and fragile" act. Oral, vaginal, anal and masturbation... giving, receiving... All good. Heavy flirting, fantastic. Foreplay depending on mood. Sometimes she just wants to fuck, you know? ;) Teasing and taunting and playing games, though she can be very blunt when it comes to what she wants.
Dislikes: Degrading, humiliating, without-consent, torturous acts. Anything involving vore, gore, vomit, scat or waterworks. Heavy bondage.
Attitude: Alex is very spontaneous and quick to change her mind. She makes decisions based on emotional aspects just as much as calculated and thought out ones. Her ability to adapt to change has made her agile and flexible in most situations, and she easily carries her two persona's without it ever affecting her life and work. Well, almost never.
She is friendly and caring in general but the warmth she radiates is tinged with confidence that verges on cocky. She will tell you what she wants in no uncertain terms, and she'll tell you how much she appreciates it when you do her bidding. Grovelling, however, gets on her nerves and she doesn't tolerate much submissive behavior in her personal life. Submissive women get less on her nerves than openly submissive men, and she may take a person under her wing, so to speak, every now and then, but in general she likes strong, independent people and it shows in her interaction.
When Alex makes friends, she makes friends for life. She's very loyal in that and will go to incredible lengths to help people she cares about. She's a believer of second chances, but that is exactly what it means and stops there. Do her wrong one time and she'll forgive you. Do it again and you find yourself out in the cold.

Habit/Twitch: She'll idly play with any pencil-like object when in deep though, rolling and twisting it between her fingers like a drumstick.
Quote: Nothing springs to mind right now, might add it later ;)
Weapons: nothing by day. By night: Five throwing knives hidden by her hip and a three foot long nylon string.
History: Alexandra is born and raised in Burden City, the daughter of European parents who moved overseas to enable her mother to pursue a career in specialized surgery. She was no stranger to privilege, lived a very good life until the age of seventeen when both her parents were brutally murdered, an unsolved mystery that left a deep scar in the teenage soul. She kept appearances clean and finished school, cared for by an aging aunt who moved to the States after the tragedy. In secret, she was developing an alternate identity, exploring the shadows of the city and getting familiar with how the wheels turned underground. She didn't venture into any real criminal activity until she had a sudden window of opportunity to get into an otherwise secure building. It was a company that completely buried her attempt to start a gallery at a perfect location because the gallery space was on the ground floor of what they pictured as their new office headquarters. Only twenty one at the time, she spontaneously grabbed the opportunity and sneaked in, cut every painting she could find out of their frames and left without a trace.

When she realized how easy this was for her, she repeated it a few times and developed her methods. When she enters the story, she indulges in the little habit every now and then and has worked up a little reputation. What her victims have in common is some sort of dirty laundry, dishonest work-ethics, abusing of power or status, etc. Every now and then she'll burglar a house or a building out of sheer spite or for fun, and she simply can not resist temptation... Which has proven to be a challenge. What she's known for is stealing paintings, and the fact that they simply disappear. She doesn't sell them, at least not to the public's knowledge. No one has figured out her motive yet, which is not all that surprising since she mainly does it for fun. For the rush.


The trickery turns her on and gives her a sense of payback for everything that has gone wrong in her life. It's a sweet release of energy in a direction no one would suspect of her, the flirty girl who has worked her way up to be an Art Museum Curator, and a somewhat respected part of the arts community of Burden City... Which, granted, is just as corrupt as the rest of town.

Her nickname comes from a headline in a small local paper, "Company Presidents Afraid of Their Shadow", but since that story ran the unknown crook has been referred to as Shadow.

My issue is that she's both a Criminal and a Victim. I think you're only supposed to choose from one class and one class only, since all of us have done it so far. So, if you could be nice enough to choose from one of them, that'll be great. Also, if you're a Criminal, you need to fill up the Possible Crimes for Criminals which means what crimes are you willing to do to others.

If you could expand more on her attitude just a bit more, no need to make full on paragraphs, it would be nice.

Hi :)

I didn't realize that by attitude you mean her character, I'll get right on it ;)

And she's a criminal, the "possibly turned victim" was just in case that sort of thing fit the story. I'll remove it.

Act I. The Profile
Birth Name: Marcus Percival Varia
Name: Marcus "Percy" Varia
Alias: "Two Face"
Age: 32
Sex: Male
Orientation: Heterosexual
Profession: Owner of "MVP" Productions
Role: Victim
Alignment: Neutral

Act II. The Diagnostics
Height: 5'8
Weight: 175
Hair: Black
Eyes: Dark Brown
Skin: Mid/dark tone-African
Birth Mark: No
Tattoos: A simple cross over his heart, the many names of the people he lost close to him on his back designed in an elaborate "wing" shape, using cursive and stylish writing.
Distinguishable Mark/Scar: no



Act III. The Dossier
Likes: Night life, Clubs, Enjoying everything life has to offer, parties, education, charities, mentoring youth, traveling, giving back to his community.
Dislikes: Media, paparazzi, critics, haters, ignorant people. The nick name "two face"
Attitude: Well mannered very calm and respectful person in the "public face" but loves to party at night and tends to live it up and not care what people think after hours.
Habit/Twitch: Speaks with his hands, very animated. Fixes his clothing to make sure they are perfect.
Quote: “It's so easy for a kid to join a gang, to do drugs, ... We should make it that easy to be involved in football and academics.”
Weapons: None, but his entourage is presumed strapped.
History:
"Percy" was a smart kid in a bad situation, his mother raised him all by himself in the slums of Burden City in one of the worst districts to this day. The influence of drugs, gangs and illegal activity did not escape him, he wanted to help his mom however he could and did what he had to do. He does not speak much of the young years of stealing, selling drugs or of the people he lost in his life. His back carries their name with him at all times in a tribute to them that he does not allow any but those closest to him to see.

Through hard work and even some questionable resources he began producing, writing and organizing talent within Burden city at a young age. His "project" studio, upgraded slowly and over the decade and a half that he had been working he lives on the upper side of Burden but he frequents his old neighborhood daily. To the people of that area he is a "hero" he gives back far more than anyone can fathom.

But "MVP" productions is growing to big for the message he shares with the public. It began with music but it is growing in ways "Percy" did not picture. With the "life" rappers portray, it was not a big hop for MVP to begin to dabble in X-rated content which makes people think Percy is a modern day two face and in a way he is. The businessman tends to overpower the "morals" of Percy, he does not approve of his company branching off into porno movies and other media outlets but after all, the more he earns the more he can give back.

He loves to live life to the fullest but he knows that people smile at him when they come face to face but our quick to judge him for what the company he owns does.

Possible Crimes for Victims
Robbery: yes
Kidnapping: attempted
Assault: yes
Arson: no
Blackmail: no
Forced Criminal Activity: yes
Rape: no
Murder: attempted

Act I. The Profile



Birth Name: Francis Dother
Name: Frank Dother
Age: Current is 32, looks like he is 40.
Sex: Male
Orientation: Hetero
Profession: Police Force
Role:Investigator.
Alignment: Detective.



Act II. The Diagnostics


Height: 6'1"
Weight: 189lbs.
Hair: Slightly graying around the ears and the neck line, longer style crew cut, hair slid back with palmade.
Eyes: Deep and dark blue, almost haunting.
Skin: A slightly paler white.
Birth Mark: No
Tattoos: Two tats, one is of a Eagle Globe and Ancor for his time spent in the Marines. His Ex-wifes initials in a dogtag as well as his two kids initials on his right side of his neck.
Distinguishable Mark/Scar: Has a burn scar over the left side of his face, running under his eye and down to the underside of his jawline.



Act III. The Dossier


Likes: Blondes, class, intelligence, honesty, legs, light eyes.
Dislikes: Idiots, little girls posing as women (mentally speaking), Criminals in particularly murders, those who harm the innocent.
Attitude: Rude, stubborn, honorable, and self-loathing.
Habit/Twitch: Will often have his left eye twitch while he is angry, and his left eye cry's blood from the injury from the burn to his face.
Quote: "An old man dies, a young woman lives, fair trade....."
"What do you think a gun is gonna do besides piss me off?"
Weapons: 9MM beretta, bullet proof vest, riot stick, handcuffs, a SpringField Armory 1911 .45 which he keeps in his main holster under his shoulders and the 9MM on his belt, other than that he keeps two Benchmade Infidel switch blades in either boot that he wears instead of dress shoes or sneakers.
History: Even at the younger age of 32 Frank has a deprived life. He prefers quiet and desk work as opposed to the running and gunning men older than he were still doing. He is broken down to working behind the scenes to hunt down the killers of his wife and two children, but he already knew who gave the order, the queen bitch herself. The leader of the entire thing. His tired manner and constant stench of alcohol no doubt makes him seem like the wash up of the department, but he had his mind going a mile a minute without the booze, it keeps him calm to think straight, without it his rage would cause him to just go on a killing spree till he himself was dead. It is his crutch and his cuffs. He usually keeps to himself working away from others but still having that chip on his shoulder that everyone knew about, but he doubts anyone will confront him on it.

The profile will be accepted on a couple of conditions.

First of all, are you talking about Lady Ana when you say the Queen Bitch?

And second, is there a reason she would have them killed? She would never give the authorization to kill children...ever...and even his wife would have had to do something bad in order to warrant a hit. She doesn't kill innocent people, and she doesn't condone rape. She will order the murder of people who piss her off, and have done bad things, and she'll murder a criminal without thinking twice. She'll order all sorts of other horrible things, but if you read her profile, she would never purposely hurt an innocent unless forced to.

Now, if you want him to be under the faulty impression that she gave the order, and plot out this misplaced revenge story, that's fine.

H I hear ya on all points, well the first point would be he is a drunk and believes what he wants. He thinks that Lady Ana did it, obviously he wouldn't have sat down for coffee with her to explain. Queen bitch is referring to Ana because its written from his point of view. As far as he knows he was getting close in an investigation to bust the Lady Ana crime group, and then his wife and kids were murdered. He figured it was a warning for him to stay away, in other words the evidence he had was correct. So he linked it together in his rage, if it isn't true then very well lol.

I think I just solved all the problems with him correct?

Alright. As long as you, the player, knows that he's incorrect in his assumptions and that Lady Ana had nothing to do with the murder...at least, as far as she knows...then we're good. He's accepted, and thanks for choosing a recognizable actor for his model...that makes my job much easier. ;)

Act I. The Profile
Birth Name: John Mason
Name: John Smith.  (Married.)
Alias: NA
Age: 35
Sex: Male
Orientation: Straight, hetero
Profession: Police Investigator.
Role: Investigator
Alignment: Detective

Act II. The Diagnostics
Height: 5 foot 6 inches
Weight: 175 pounds
Hair: Short brown hair
Eyes: Chocolate brown eyes
Skin: White
Birth Mark: No
Tattoos: None
Distinguishable Mark/Scar: Couple of bullet wound scars on his chest.

Act III. The Dossier
Likes: ((Check O/O page.)  Cats, his job...a little too much.  His daughter though he never gets to see her now.  His ex though she hates his guts.
Dislikes: ((Check O/O page.)  Dogs, his ex's scumbag boyfriend and lawyers as well as their scumbag accountant clients....
Attitude: Straightforward, sarcastic, honorable...usually.  Driven, pissed due to the divorce and subsequent rip off of almost everything that was in his name.
Habit/Twitch: Drinks a beer in the morning to get himself ready for the day, though it's just old habit now more than anything.
Quote: "I can do this all day."  "I like scumbags, they're easy to deal with."
Weapons: Handcuffs, bullet proof vest, hand held radio, riot stick, 9mm pistol, badge.
History: John came to Burden City to get away from his old home in New York.  Funny thing how a messy divorce will do that to a person, but at least he was allowed to keep his bank account though the ex got everything else along with her Wall Street scumbag accountant.  Even so, John shrugged off the barbs and the hurt from being betrayed by the one woman that had mattered to him and started a new life elsewhere.  Now his workaholic habit was going to be put to good use since Burden City was almost Hell on Earth or so the stories went back home in the police force he had come from.

((Sorry if that's not enough.  It's late for me and I'm brain dead lol.))

Alright, a few things Vergil.

One, we need actual likes and dislikes. Not a reference to your O.O. They don't have to be strictly sexual...or even sexual at all! Just put more into his character.

Also, I hate to do this, but since Marcoth just made a cop who lost his wife and kid and is depressed about it, can you add a little variety by switching up his backstory a bit?

And the crimes for victims part...are you wanting him to be a victim too? I'm confused.
