    -Don't know how closely you all have followed the Cain Winters case, but apparently some info was leaked, and I thought I'd post it here for you all to see, and make your own judgments. This is all the info on Operation Newfallen Snow, which Special Agent Winters was leading.

    • [​IMG]

      Operation: Newfallen Snow Personnel:

      Name: Special Agent Cain Winters

      Background: Special Agent Winters was the leader of Operation: Newfallen Snow. He had previously been involved in several operations. Agent Winters directed the implanted corporate agents, and kept their information on a commlink, which has since gone missing since his death. He was found dead one week ago in a hotel room in Washington FDC, UCAS.

      Status: KIA


      Name: Agent Rachel Kellogg

      Background: Agent Kellogg was the partner of Agent Winters. She graduated at the top of her class from Quantico, and has since been an able member of the Bureau. She has temporarily taken command of Agent Winters's post, and is awaiting promotion to it full time. She is currently focused on recollecting the information lost after the death of Agent Winters.

      Status: In Action


      Name: Doctor Michael Hope

      Background: Doctor Hope studied Anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis, UCAS. After he finished getting his doctorate in Forensic Anthropology, he immediately rose to prominence on finding the serial killer terrorizing the St. Louis area. He began consulting for various agencies and corporations. He became involved in the operation when he and Doctor Park were handed the Altis Virus and Shiawase papers during the Shiawase incident. (See Document: Exeunt Omnes.)

      Status: Missing, presumed dead.

      Last Known Location: Hong Kong


      Location of her and the bioweapons she carries are priority!
      -Agent Rachel Kellogg, FBI

      Name: Doctor Suyong Park



      Background: Doctor Park is a well known Biochemist who works for the Korean corporation "United Omnidyne-Cross Industries." She developed a cure for several diseases that were spreading through Korea at the time. She currently carries the briefcase containing the Altis Virus, a bioweapon produced by Shiawase Corporation under the guise of Project Arcadia, as well qs several papers containing information on Shiawase projects. She is to be approached with caution and care.

      Status: Missing, presumed dead

      Last Known Location: Hong Kong, believed to be with Doctor Alton.

      Anti-Shadowrunning Office, UCAS DHS


      Case: FBI Special Agent Winters had been found dead in a hotel in Washington, FDC, UCAS. He had been gathering info on several cases for Operation: Newfallen Snow. He had three bullet wounds to the head. Nothing had been taken from the room except for his passport and his commlink. The evidence pointed to a Shadowrunner team of significant skill. A joint team of Knight Errant officers, FBI Agents, and members from our Anti-Shadowrunning Office were able to apprehend the suspects several days later.

      The suspects have been transferred to Knight Errant custody, and are currently awaiting transfer to FBI custody.

    • Operation: Newfallen Snow is an interagency and international operation between the FBI, DHS, NSA, Interpol, and the United Nations to keep the Status Quo between Corps and the people. It involves a network of agents, doctors, businessmen, and other figures in the corporate hierarchy to gather information on suspicious corporate activities that threaten the normal everyday life of Metahumanity.

      The Operation was led by FBI Special Agent Cain Winters and Agent Rachel Kellogg. They gathered together and ran the network of informants inside the corporations, some, as in the case of Doctors Hope and Park were suddenly thrust in. The operation has so far been a success, but with the death of Agent Winters, and the loss of all relevant information, the Operation is currently on hold.

    You and I

    Suspect Name

    Akane Tsunemori

    Lord in Heaven, where have you gone to? Please, you never respond to me
    Are you still here?



    You'll never walk alone
    I'll go with you
    No matter your sin, I'll shoulder it for you
    I'll walk the unpaved paths
    All alone with you




    Come here
    Touch me, kiss me
    It's okay for you to mess me up even more, you know?
    Everyone will die one day
    If I'm going to be forgotten
    Right now, I'll believe only in something concrete



    - Decently skilled in firearms handling and CQC, enough to defend herself at the very least.

    - Uncanny ability to remain calm even in the most stressful of situations, able to fool even herself with how she might react on the outside. In other words, simply does not crack under pressure once her resolve is gathered.

    - Good communicator due to somewhat natural charisma and intelligent enough to possess a degree in psychology and criminal justice.

    Lord in Heaven, pretentious people say
    "Hey, it's a total lie"
    That people are strong
    Do you agree?



    - Prone to doubting herself every now and then

    - Doesn't sleep very often, a little on the unhealthy side of workaholic

    - Sometimes too cute to be taken seriously :|

    I will stay with you
    Embrace me in your arms with all your strength
    Don't be afraid
    You know me; I'm fine now

    Run like hell, and don't look back.

  4. Question, is this still open?

    I have an idea for an Overwatch.

    And it'll be the most predictable shit on gods green earth.
  5. PM me the idea, I think I know who, but PM me.
  6. Looks great, just reread the rules.

    Suspect Name: Motoko Kusanagi



    Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex


    Motoko is a skilled leader, and an extremely skilled hacker. Her body consists of 99 percent cybernetic enhancements. She is good with guns, and has in depth knowledge of police and Spec-ops tactics.


    Motoko is incredibly heavy due to the systems inside of her that help her function.

    As a hacker, she can also be counter-hacked, and the hacker can pretty much control her actions from there.

    Due to the amount of Cyberware on her, she literally can not use magic at all.

    Other: Run Like Hell, and don't look back.

    First Degree Murder of of FBI Agent Cain Winters, blackmail, Shadowrunning.
    Arresting Officer: Shawn Cavendish, Jason Abernathy
    Date: 6/25/2076

    Suspect Name
    Jesse McCree

    "You look like you jus' seen a ghost."


    "Oh, it was this lil' group called..."


    "Heh, not bad...if I do say so myself."

    - Master Gunslinger: McCree possesses inhuman reaction speed and a talent for guns. Before he was officially trained by Overwatch prior to joining, he was known to be one of the deadliest gunslingers of the Deadlock Gang. He was notorious enough to be locked up in maximum security prison-- back in his world, anyway.

    -Deadeye: McCree is known, combined with his mastery of gunslinging, to be a deadeye shot. Each bullet he fires will always hit the mark, even if it involves some crazy ricochet tricks. He has known to be able to wipe out entire squads just by standing still to take aim.

    -Flashbangs: A surprising ability picked up during his criminal days, McCree knows how to concoct homebrew flashbangs from conventional materials. They are cheap, and sometimes they don't even blow, but they get the job done. The couple seconds of stunning they provide is enough time for McCree to take out the unfortunate souls caught within.

    -Synthetic Arm: McCree had a bad run in once, and it costed him his entire left arm. Fortunately, cybernetic advancements granted him a medical-grade prosthetic replacement. The strength of the arm far surpasses that of a normal human arm, allowing for McCree to deal devastating blows at close-range with a sucker punch. He has increased throwing range with the arm and the speed of the arm allows him to fire his Revolver at lightning speed.

    -Sure As Hell Ain't Ugly: Sometimes, you just gotta give 'em the bedroom eyes.


    "Hey, I ain't perfect."

    - Revolvers First: McCree is masterful when it comes to revolvers and pistols, but he isnt the master at arms. Rifles, shotguns and other guns aren't the best when used by McCree. This puts him at a disadvantage when snipers are in the field.

    -Radiaphobia: McCree despises magic and all things supernatural. He won't admit it, but he possesses a huge fear when such unearthly energies are being used around him-- or, even worse, on him.

    -The Good: McCree holds a strict moral code that prevents him from killing the innocent or murdering without purpose. He is willing to put his effort towards reducing civilian casualties before trying to get the job done. He won't hesitate to put a bullet in the skull of anyone who kills innocent folk-- even if they are on the same side as him.

    -Synthetic Arm: Yes, that arm is indeed vulnerable to EMP. When McCree is EMP'd, he effectively loses his left arm until it can be repaired, which instantly nullifies his gunslinging ability. Consider it his primary weak spot...that is, if you can get close enough.

    The Peacekeeper:
    McCree carries with him his special revolver, known as the Peacekeeper. It is a futuristic take on the classic western revolver, but made personally for McCree. The way it functions only favors those with inhuman speed in their arms, thus making it useless when used by someone other than McCree.

    ...unless, that someone is just as fast as McCree.

    Run like hell, and don't look back.​
  9. Alright, the roster has been updated!

    I also found a smaller FBI seal. It wasn't transparent, but eh.
  10. I'm making it, just getting delayed a bunch.

    Suspect Name: Faith Connors


    Mirror's Edge


    - Parkour; Faith was trained as a Runner from the early stages of her life... And as a runner, she had to do insane amounts of parkour to continuously evade law enforcements and persuers every step of the way. As a result, everywhere she ran, she could always make out a path... A place to navigate herself across an seemingly impossible to navigate the landscape, just as long as she had the right things to grab onto, land on, leap across, and more.

    - Close Quarters Combat; Using her own momentum, Faith is capable of incredibly quick and efficient combat techniques, able to knock most opponents unconscious with a few punches to their unprotected facial region, or simply reacting fast enough to disarm them... Often times, she uses the environment around her to help her in a fight, but... Alot of the time, she is encouraged to run rather than fight, if she is able to.

    - Weapons Profficiency; Having disarmed a large variety of foes, Faith is capable of wielding various weapons, typically guns... Snipers, shotguns, pistols, automatic weapons, you name it... As long as it has an identifiable trigger and muzzle, and fired projectiles at her foes, chances are, Faith is able to use it... Though she rarely carries bulky weapons with her when she travels, if any at all, since they tend to hamper her movements.

    - Tech Savvy; Though it is unknown exactly how skilled Faith is at operating electronics... She is certainly capable of using them to monitor fellow runners, or allies, given the proper equipment, and even establish communications with them through com links... However, it is unknown how able she is to set these things up herself, in order to begin using them in the first place.


    - Stamina; Faith is capable of running for considerable amounts of time, but without a few moments to catch her breath, her movements slowly but surely become sluggish, often leaving her at risk of being caught if she is unable to escape, or at least reach a safe place befire she tires herself out.

    - Manueverability; Though Faith is capable of incredible feats of parkour, she is often more suited to an urban or suburban environment... In other words, the more buildings, pipes, hand/footholds, usable scenery and heights she can go, and more, the better of a job she can do "running", with less of those around, she tends to find it more difficult to escape from her opponents, and will often resort to fighting as a result.

    - Luck; Alot of the time, Faith's maneuvers and endeavors operate solely on pure luck, and that has it's limits... Sometimes she can end up biting off alot more than she can chew, or is simply stuck in a terrible situation... Though she still has the possibility of getting herself out of whatever mess she ended up in, luck can only carry her so far.

    Crime: First Degree Murder of of FBI Agent Cain Winters, blackmail, Shadowrunning.

    Other: Goes under a variety of aliases as an infiltrator, most common one being Elana Rayes.​
