  1. Premise

    In a surprise attack that no government, or even that people of said governments could foresee, the world erupted into chaos. There was no enemy, no war between countries or nuclear holocaust. Instead, the enemy was within each countries borders. Terrorists, Cartels, Yakuza, Mafia, any and all forms of mass criminal organizations joined together in a single pact.

    In a matter of months nearly every world leader was assassinated, those that survived lay in hiding. Unable to address their people. In a matter of months it was not only the world leaders that were killed, but the people under them. Generals, politicians, representatives. Slowly but surely, these criminal organizations destroyed the world's governments from within, and started to corrupt them one by one.

    Not even the largest countries, such as the United States Of America and Russia were able to protect themselves from the enemies within.

    All seemed lost, until a single organization rose from the ashes of the world. The Children Of Eden, a police force that found its roots in Japan and quickly spread to the rest of the world. Super soldiers, yet lacking any actual super powers. Young men and women were recruited into the program, raised to be the best fighters they could possibly be. They fought a long and bloody war, eventually starting to bring the world back from it's demise.

    However, the countries of the world were weak, relaying on the soldiers from Children Of Eden to protect them from the enemy within. Be them spies, front line fighters, or technicians. The Children, as they were called by the world at large, understood their responsibility, and set out to protect the world from sinister villains that plotted its downfall...

    Children Of Eden

    The Zodiac: A largely Asian-based faction. Their domain consists mainly of Japan, China, and South Korea. They were the first faction to be formed when the Children Of Eden was first founded within the dark years, and are the most well respected and elite of the Children of Eden.

    Knights Of Round: The English branch of the Children Of Eden. They have many members, but are less skilled than the more specialized Zodiac faction. All members start out with a name from one of the former Knights of the Round Table, such as King Arthur. If one of the members complete a certain amount of years in service, along with extraordinary achievements, they will be promoted to the "Inner Circle", where the Knights of Round's most elite group who use their own surnames as a title, rather than the one's of past knights.

    The Founding Fathers: The United States branch of the Children Of Eden. They are one of the largest factions within the Children Of Eden. However, they are also one of the weakest in terms of unity. Unlike both the Zodiac and Knights Of Round, the Founding Fathers each work as a single member.

    Rules

    1.) All Iwaku rules apply.

    2.) No one-liners.

    3.) No meta-playing or auto-killing/hitting.

    4.) Zodiac members personality MUST be based off the personality of that particular animal.

    5.) At least two paragraph replies in roleplay. Add lots of detail in, as this is a team crime drama.

    6.) Appearance, personality, and history must be at least one paragraph long. No semi-paragraphs.

    7.) No pictures. You want to show what your character looks like realistically (or anime-like)? Use the character vault or show the picture later on, but DON'T put the picture in the character sheet.

    8.) This is mainly focused on Zodiac characters, so 12 members in all. I'm one of them, so only 11 spots are left.

    9.) There is no character limit, but please, if you're going to play more than one character, make sure you have one character from the Zodiac. The Founding Fathers and Knights of the Round Table are more like second options AFTER you create a Zodiac character.

    11.) Main characters must be 16-23. Have diversity in the ages, as well as nationality and ethnicity.

  2. Name: Leonardo Jay Hughes(prefers to be called Leon, though is usually addressed as Jay Hughes)

    Age:
    21

    Gender:
    Male

    Nationality:
    Southern part of Europe

    Ethnicity:
    Leon comes from a long line of fighters, his forefathers having served in many wars far before the first world leaders were brought down, and has been trained for this his whole life. He carries with him an old golden badge over his right-side pocket on his coat, though it has rusted over with age. It is a metal that has been handed down for generations, which now rested proudly on Leon's chest, handed down to him by his father.

    Occupation:
    Year of the Dragon. Leon specializes in combat and weaponry, trained in the arts of combat and able to use any sort of weapon handed to him, though doesn't necessarily mean he carries all sorts of weapons.

    Affiliation:
    Zodiac

    Appearance:
    Leon has a sturdy and strong body built so that he may fend off his enemies by mere strength alone, but he also holds a lean frame for agility and flexibility, so that he could easily twist and turn in the mist of battle. Because of this he's not too large in muscle, it would only slow him down, but he had plenty of muscles to knock a guy flat when he needed to. His hair is short and a dark blackish blue, thin and spikey though a bit of a mess since he can't seem to stop running his hand through it whenever he's nervous or thinking, the blue hue to his hair only noticeable with light shining over it. His eyes are a deep gold, with the pupils slitted like that of a dragon.(I'm not exactly sure how realistic this rp is supposed to be, so if you want me to change the eyes then I can do that, just let me know).

    Personality:
    There's a reason Leon is usually put in the front lines of battle. Due to his stubborn and hot headed actions, he jumps right into the fray, slashing or firing down any of his enemies before him. He doesn't tend to hold back or wait patiently, getting right into the zone and doesn't tend to listen much, prone to sometimes disobeying orders. He's a bit arrogant, believing that he is better than most because of his skills, blind to the fact of others' abilities. "It's not that you're not good, it's just that I'm way better and more suited for the job," is his usual saying. He isn't completely hopeless though, and can recognize talent when he sees it, it just takes a lot to gain his respect. But once you have it, there is no better ally.

    Aside from all that, one of his greatest strengths is his cunning wisdom. Though not a planner or a tactician, he knows the right words to say in any given situation. Because of his attitude it's hard to believe he could come up with anything worth saying, but he surprises many with his thoughts, his words giving hope and sometimes a solution. These moments aren't frequent, but they aren't rare either, and they seem to come out whenever everyone is at a lost on what to do. "Sometimes fleeing could be cowardly, but it can also be honorable, for you're simply choosing to fight for another day. We're not turning our backs to the enemies and running, we're only facing them while walking backwards."


    History:
    Leon was an energetic tyke when he was little, always running about and causing trouble, having a bit of a rebellious streak. He had a pretty normal childhood, but because of the assassination of world leaders, he had been taken away at a young age to be trained to fight. Ever since he could remember, all he did was train and train and train. He learned to go through any sort of obstacle in his path, given any kind of weapon to learn and use, have survival and killer instincts implanted into his mind. He can sneak, fight hand-to-hand combat, fight with any weapon, ect. It's no understatement to say that he had been raised to kill and fight, his sole purpose to bring down the enemies before him, or die trying.

    More:
    Like every strong opponent, Leon has a weakness: He is blind and deaf in his left eye and ear. Due to a horrible accident from one of his battles, a bomb had gone off near him, his left side taking most of the damage. He wasn't near enough for the explosion to scar his face, but the flash and sound of the bomb had permanently damaged his eye and ear drum. No one knows of this fact besides the ones who treated him and his high commanders, though he tends to keep this fact hidden from his own comrades, not wanting it to leak at all to his enemies that he was half blind and deaf.
     
  3. Well, first off, this IS modern and it IS realistic, so yeah, no dragon slits or purple eyes. You have a nice foundation for a potential character, however, it needs some improvement done to it. There is already a combat specialist, but Leon can be a weapon specialist, if you so wish.

    Another thing, you need to understand that the Zodiac consists mainly of Korean, Japanese, and Chinese people, no Europeans. For nationality, if he was born in Europe, you need to state exactly what country he was born in, not the location according to a compass. When I say ethnicity, I'm not talking about what your ancestors did and such, I'm referring to your racial background. For example, if his Mom was American and his Dad was Japanese, his ethnicity would be Japanese-American.

    The history needs to be fleshed out more, as well. You need to explain how he became part of the Zodiac and state the main department, which is Children of Eden. You need to also keep in mind that if he did become a part of the Zodiac, he would not specifically be one of the 12. Another thing lacking in the history is what his "normal" childhood was. What was "normal" in his childhood?

    Some questions that arise to me in particular are ones such as what age was he taken away to fight? Why was he taken away if he came from a long line of fighters (which is essentially a very ambiguous term, so I'd appreciate if you were more specific on that). I need a little more in-depth history. I also am confused that if he was blind and deaf, how is he half-blind and deaf now? He may not say that he's half-blind and deaf in his left eye and ear, but being blind would be obvious in someone's physical appearance, the eyes especially.

    If you need any help on the character sheet in particular, just PM me and I'll answer questions, as well as help out to the best of my ability!

  4. I would join, but I dislike making a character come froma culture I know almost nothing about. I just would not rp well. SOrry ^-^
     
  5. Name: Julianna Victor
    Age: 19
    Gender: Female
    Nationality: American
    Ethnicity: Julianna is half Caucasian and a quarter African American and Hispanic.

    Occupation: Her zodiac is the sign of the Rabbit and she works for the Medical field specifically, in types of emergency and diagnostic medicine.
    Affiliation: The Founding Fathers Branch of the Children of Eden

    Appearance: Julianna at a five foot three stature and weighting in at one hundred and twenty pounds, she is quite small to most. She is fairly lean, with some muscle from her basic training and kickboxing on the side. She has large light green eyes with defining eyebrows, a scar travels from her left check all the way down to the corner of her pink lips that is a shade lighter than her olive skin, her face is round and is often called childlike due to her high plump cheekbones. She has long black wild curls that go down her back, all the same length except a side bang that covers a bit of right eye, most often you will see it either braided or straightened.
    Personality: Julianna is a kind and feminine creature with a vast curiosity of the world and those around her. She keeps a level head in the mist of chaos, bringing out her courage and quick thinking side. Julianna tries to remain as optimistic as she can on the problems in life but her insecurity often drags down all positive thoughts causing her to blame herself. She is proud all the same and her pride motivate her to do the best she can, her compassion is often considered admirable and yet one of her greatest weaknesses.

    History: Julianna was a shy child, yet somehow her shyness and compassionate nature, made her incredibly popular with all the people she met in her life. She had a relatively normal childhood, her Spain born mother was often gone off overseas and traveling to whatever crisis she was called to. She was a part of the highest of one of the most respected emergency medical response teams in the US so Julianna couldn’t help be sad yet very proud of her mother when she kissed her in the morning and then again two weeks later at bedtime. So that left her with her father who had retired from the Marines to care for Julianna while his wife followed her dream.

    This was the life she had up to the day she turned 14, then the president of the United States was assassinated, next the vice president, then finally the Speaker of the House in two weeks. That’s when the Children of Eden came up and her father was called to join the Founding Fathers and he accepted. Her mother never came home from her latest mission, she instead returned to Spain having being called to join the Knights of the Round and in that day, foreign born US citizens were under much scrutiny and being persecuted left and right.

    Julianna, by then had lost her father and mother and for all she knew she’d never see them again. Recruiters for the Children of Eden were practically screaming in the nations face, including children as young as thirteen years old. If children from ages thirteen to seventeen could get their GED and pass the entrance exam they could start their official training now and be a full blown agent in two years. Julianna did them one better; she managed to finish high school in a year and a half and graduated then passed the exam with flying colors. Next thing she knew she was starting her training in their medical division completing it with honors and starting her first mission.

    More: The scar on her cheek has a very deep meaning….
     
  6. Well I don't think that it really matters about the culture, just have the basis of it.
     
  7. @viveridereamor So are we going with my idea? Or we still having debate on it?
     
  8. Neither. I'm not having just one person put up an idea and me being the only one who sees it. I'm not personally a fan of it myself. I have an idea that I want to be the main but it's still undercover. The African idea could me a side plot though, but like I said, not a huge fan.
     
  9. Oh? Well that's a hit to my creative beast, that's what I call my creative side a giant furry thing. Anyways could you tell me what you found so unappealing about my idea? And what exactly is yours?
     
  10. You had all departments working together, while not a bad thing, the main focus of the rp is on the zodiac, not the other departments. None are currently "less experienced" than the other except for the fact that the Zodiac does have more highly trained members than the Founding Fathers and Knights of Round. I suppose I need to do more indepth work with this idea because each department has already had "official" missions, thus why they are so experienced, despite one being supposedly more "experienced" than the others. The Children of Eden is a whole organization, thus none of them work against each other, even if they work separately in different countries. Again, because this is based solely on the Zodiac members, not the Founding Fathers and Knights of Round, there would be no five or four people in a team, since the Zodiac consists of 12 members.

    I think I need to flesh out Children of Eden more and clarify everything with this roleplay and the character sheets and such. There's some confusion going around with the sheets. Anyways, there you have it up above. Why I don't particularly care for the idea.

    My idea still needs to be fleshed out but among other things, I think I'm going to go ahead and paste my own character sheet to give everyone an idea of what I'm looking for. I'll probably make this into a group instead- would make it easier in handling submissions and such.

    Name: Keira Ruriko Sasaki

    Age: 18

    Gender: Female

    Nationality: Japanese

    Ethnicity: Japanese-Brazilian

    Occupation: Combat Specialist, Tiger

    Affiliation: Zodiac, Children of Eden

    Appearance: Keira has long, straight, dark brown sugar hair that travels all the way down towards the middle of her back. However, her hair is layered, so the front will look as if a part of the hair strands are a few inches shorter than the back. Keira's straight bangs fall a tiny bit over her eyes, and around her cheeks are shorter clumps of hair which help outline her face. Her eyes are a dark chocolate brown, as well as her eyebrows. The skin is considerably smooth and slightly tanned, seemingly having no flaws, and an hourglass shape fits her abdomen. Her belly button is pierced, as well as her right helix and both standard lobes with some simple midnight blue titanium studs. Long, lithe legs and arms go along with Airi's height of only 5'1" and average weight of about 121 pounds. Keira carries a double-edged katana with her, as well as a few throwing knives, but not much weapons, as she is more flexible in the Japanese martial arts such as Judo, Aikido, and Jujutsu. Since Keira is of Yakuza lineage, she's supposed to have a full-body tattoo, but instead has a huge tattoo of a Japanese dragon on her back to try and lower the chances of her being suspected as a Yakuza member.

    Personality: She's a stubborn, aggressive, and feisty young person. Keira is also very unpredictable, competitive, and doesn't take no for an answer. She likes to play leader, and isn't a fan of sharing her things. She's bold, straightforward, and is determined to have the ability of doing everything by herself. She has a thing for sarcasm, and likes to tease her friends. However, whenever Keira's on duty, she is completely sincere and serious, chiding those who can't follow instructions, and being a bossy woman. Keira also has a lazy side, not always following the terms of "Do what is right, not what is easy" but rather whenever she feels like it.

    History: Keira is descended from a long line of Yakuza. Her great grandfather was one, as well as many before that. Her own father educated her by teaching her about the history of Yakuza, as well as teaching her how to handle their weaponry and self defense. Keira's father was her only family, as she had no siblings, and her birth mother had died from an ambush when she was only two years old. Keira has a step-mother now, but she doesn't seem to care much for her. She has been told many times that she is the one going to succeed her father when he passes away. However, she has shown no interest in doing that, and plans to give away her succession to one of the few men- her father's friends- that she is close to. Her relationship with the Zodiac started when her gang was sent in to infiltrate the main headquarters in order to get information.

    Keira got away with deceiving a particular naive member of the Zodiac, and she joined with the Zodiac- as a double agent- working for her father's boss, as well as the Zodiac boss. She is a part of the "Children of Eden" faction in Tokyo, Japan. Recently, she has been working and planning her escape from the Yakuza way of life, as she wants nothing more than to be free from it now. The whole idea of finally having friends, and being able to communicate with others her age has changed her ways. She no longer wants to be on her father's side, but rather with the people who changed her life, and made it permanent for the rest of her living.

    Other: Keira has two aliases, one in Japanese, which is Chiyuri Yamamoto, and one in English, which is Anna Jackson. She can speak in basic English, as well as hold a few meaningful conversations in Mandarin Chinese and Brazilian Portuguese.
     
  11. Ok I understand.
     
  12. Not to say it wouldn't be duable, but it'd probably be more of a side rp (not side plot, my apologies) and still, we'd have to get more people to see whether they like the idea or not. I'm not the only one who has a say in this.
     
  13. Hey its your idea you have creative freedom to accept or deny ideas we don't even have to do it. Just let us know what the plot is
     
  14. I don't have a plot. That's why I have that group rp plotting thread set up. :P
     
  15. Ah, sorry this is so sudden, but I really need to maintain and moderate my Rps and activity, so unfortunately I cannot do this any longer. I have way too much going on outside of the internet.
