Here's some character I made







Name: Barry Klein

Age: 20

Occupation: scavenger

Personality: quiet and has no idea how to deal with people

Skills: martial arts, outdoor survival, basic marksmanship, basic tinkering

Bio: Barry was the average street orphan, not knowing his parents or what his destiny was. One day he discovered he could travel outside the walls, and so, he became a scavenger. He first traveled out with small supplies such as a baseball bat and a small revolver he found on the streets. As he killed the monstrosities that lived in the wastes, he realized he quite liked killing these creatures. He fashioned another baseball bat created from a creature’s bone and found a sawed off double barrel shotgun. To this day people say he lives more outside the city than anywhere else with his skateboard modified for riding on the sand.



Name: Tommy Thimble

Age: 19

Occupation: thief/tinkerer

Personality: kind, positive, usually a jokester

Skills: inventing, sleight of hand, persuasion

Bio: Tommy was born into a very rich family, each branch of it becoming a thief at some point. Tommy was no exception. He started school at a very young age, being a prodigy in his class. He lived a “normal” life until the age of 16. One night he smelled smoke coming into his room. Alarmed, he jolted out of bed and tried to open the door, burning his hand in the process. Another idea came to him, abandon his family. He wrapped his blankets around his hand and punched the window out and ran for safety. No one knows how the fire started, but some speculate it was payback towards the family. Tommy wandered the streets, created and selling inventions from stolen items. He now owns a small underground shop where he sells off his creations to other thieves in the city.

Name: Grey

Age: 20--30?

Gender: Something currently in question and something unknown from the numerous things this character wears to disguise themselves which is heavily influenced by their business.

Occupation:

Rogue Trader:

Being hired to obtain and fine things from raw materials to certain skills which may be required for a job. Rogue traders are those that trade goods(whether it be legal or otherwise) for a price. Dealing with activities that are not seen as necessarily moral makes them targets for many and require them to hide their appearance and recognition from many. Though, there are ways to still fine the specific trader you wish too hire by the markings they often associate with. This one in particular uses a snake and wears an extravagant and strange mask. They also cover their throat and wear gloves and don"t even reveal a thread of skin. There have been numerous rumors of this character being 'removed' but these have not seemed real at least at this very moment.

Thief:

Being a rogue trader requires being a thief though that doesn't mean all traders do is illegal activities. Often times, it may be finding someone who may be able to help or remedy a situation or acquiring others to do a job. There may be also be simple things such as delivers or transfers of important things. Being a thief though, they do take what they require and may involve themselves with things that will help better themselves. One must be greedy at times if they wish to eat and being kind in this world doesn't offer enough fruit as being a criminal will.

Scavenger:

Though there is a last thing a Rogue trader mostly does and it is the thing that defines such people is their exploration outside of Matina. They mostly make their living out of this as stealing from people is dangerous and can lead to unfortunate circumstances. The majority of the time going out and searching for items is amongst the best you can do for yourself without demanding a bullet to the skull. It is important to be able to do this one the most as this is where most of the income comes from. While learning how and who to steal from is important it is the wastes which people like Grey make most of their living off of.

Skills:

Sleight of Hand:

Capable of making things appear and disappear with their hands as well as able too carefully move his hands to take things.

Creative Intelligence/Memory:

Able to memorize quickly and remember them for a long time or figure things out after trials and errors. They can use both to help them out in troubling situations or if they are trying to rob a place or escape it as well.

Knife/Gunplay:

The last thing they are heavily involved with. They don't use guns all that often though with the sheer limitation of ammunition but the sight of a gun alone is still something that places people on edge. Capable of using short knives and daggers they don't seem proficient enough with something like swords or longer blunt weapons more than any other person would be capable of.

Voice Mimicry:

Able to change their voices pitch and accent. They can mimic people fairly well and can imitate masculine men and effeminate women. This is a skill they seem to enjoy and one which they thoroughly seem happy to continuing to practice with.

Bio:

They were often named many titles though the most particular one that stuck with them was grey. They have planned to be known as the king of thieves since this town demands it. Though, their trouble with others has gotten them into many binds and after a serious injury it has gotten much harder to rely on going into the wastes to achieve a livelihood. This has caused them to more and more go into thievery and with this, has caused even more people to come against them and wish for them to be slaughtered. Time may be running out for this poor soul but regardless they hope to go out into no mans land and find some profit to hopefully calm some hearts and prevent them from being killed. Though, there is more than just themselves that they care for. They have been intrinsically involved with much of the underworld of the city and have seen the natural horrors humans produce. This has made them involved with many of the street children and elderly, they are among the poor and people they wish to donate towards. This has also egged on some dangerous jobs simply to support people but it may be potentially to their advantage as the unfortunate may be some of the best to turn towards for certain information. Lastly, there have been rumors of them wandering the town without the mask to see and interact normally with others. Being hidden to everyone they interact them allows them a luxury to be free once they remove it.

This is the person who wishes to become the king of thieves though with something very wrong with them, that time may have already passed and they must now have other things to deal with.

Signed: Grey
(Hopefully, this isn't too bad and I don't go too far with liberties. This is someone I would wish to use again and feel like this roleplay would be a perfect chance too. I am definitely free to change it and let me know any problems and shall fix them right away when I can!)

1. Is the 'king of thieves'a self appointed title (goal) thing? There has been no previous king.

2. I can see that there would be fences, but not many. 1 or 2 would be enough as the thieves guild isn't that big to begin with.




For everyone. I just want to make sure this is clear. The city isn't a typical dystopian city. It's not run by tyrants (maybe one of the council might be corrupt if someone wanted them to be, Or some guards), it has facilities like homeless shelters/drives, child protection services and foster care. The biggest problem is location. Because it is in the desert, there are small problems of water and food. And the city is under constant threat from extreme weather and monsters. And the isolation that has been caused by all of the above is what makes living there hard enough to force people into situations like thievery or even murder.

I also apologise. Whilst I did mention that education is for the rich, I meant to add that basic eduction (like necessary maths, english and some extra ciricular) is provided for free.

Again, sorry. That's a lot to read.

Sorry got off of work and had to enjoy some food but he is someone that wants to be the king of thieves they realize that it isn't something that exists and it's partially a joke as well.

As for fences, I can change that and make them more of a scavenger if that would help! It sounds like an interesting city since it reminds me of a story that is similar and humans are force to contribute to the city and if they don't they are killed by the governing force. Obviously not as strict as that but I would like to make a character illegally trading items for the rich which may make problems for the poor with lacks of food and water.

I'm fine with him being a fence, I just put that there so that there are limitations. Does that male sense? Like, there's an underground, but it's not that big and connections aren't that well known. For plot reasons.

de9f1ee4e418706f0a6442ab4e721769.jpg

Name: Unknown..for now.
Age: 22
Gender: Female
Occupation: Corrupted Noble
Skills
1. Fire Specialist
2. Melee Specialist

3. Charming
The Woman Who Set Fire to Rain

Starting out as a young girl to a family of older brothers, she had a rough raising up to watch her back and assert her dominance. Her brothers were the only friends she had, because she didn't have anyone else she wanted to speak with. She strives to become the most powerful she could, being the noble she was, she didn't understand how privileged she was..or maybe she understood it all to well. She wants to fight, she loves to fight,and the reason she lives.. she believes.. is because her soul is a fighter. Even though she is a noble, what makes her corrupted wasn't her mistreatment to those beneath her- it was her indifference in situations that could have used her help.. But if there was one thing she wasn't indifferent towards-
It was thieves.
She absolutely despised thieves and it started from when her horse was stolen from her when she was much younger. Her horse, Sparky, was her only light in the world who she could deal with besides her brother- a breath of fresh air, she was close to this horse and loved to just run off on the stallion. When someone stole her horse, she was so distraught that it had changed her forever- in fact, after her horse was stolen, she had to strive to become a better fighter. The thieves who stole her horse was particularly brutal, they threw her to the side and beat her up along with her brothers to steal the horses they possessed. After that day, she strives to become strong enough to protect her assets and never let that happen to her again.
One day she came across Sparky once more, at her prime state- and returned home with the head's of the thieves, along with her horse- setting a blaze with the heads in the center of the city with her mark on it. They didn't know who she was but oh.. did she leave her mark along with the message 'Thieves Beware'.

Smut
Name: Mona Colt
Age: 17
Gender: Trans Girl
Occupation: Engineer/Inventor
Skills: Tinkering, recycling parts, digging through dumpsters. Also a decent cook.
Bio: Born hard of hearing, with a cleft lip and only one hand to tinker with, Mona lived by her uncle's rule throughout childhood and into adolescence: make do. Surprisingly dexterous even as a child, Mona was always fascinated by the unknown, everything from lightning to magnetic metals making her eyes light up in excitement. Her uncle, who raised her, scrounged up the money to get her as far into the education system as possible; admittedly, it wasn't very far, but it was nearly enough to satisfy Mona's intellectual hunger. Nearly.

Appearance-wise, Mona has medium-dark brown skin and blue-gray eyes. Her hair is dark, straight and short, cropped to her shoulders. She has one hand on her right, and her left arm ends about halfway up her forearm. At 12, she began work on a crude prosthesis that extends her left arm to about the length of her right, but she often goes without wearing it.

Mona always thought that if the circumstances of her birth were different, she'd be a thief. Everything about the act of stripping something for parts strikes a match inside her chest. And though she's never told anyone, especially her uncle, she's always secretly admired them for their cunning and rebellion. Even if her house did get robbed once or twice.

And then there were the monsters. When she was around 2, her parents disappeared while scavenging. As her uncle retells it, it was the middle of the day and they were meant to be back that afternoon. As a child, the only significance of this to Mona was that this meant her uncle would never let her even dream of being a proper scavenger and going outside of the city walls. But the more time passed, and as she grew further into her adolescence, the more robbed she felt. Nowadays, she often spends her time brainstorming and scheming about ways to make the city safer, but she hits many roadblocks in her planning. You can't just make water out of sand.

So, neither thief nor scavenger, Mona merely drifts from ineffectual plan to ineffectual plan, until perhaps her uncle's watchful eye will inevitably begin to wander.

Alright, jax is accepted but only if you make another character, please. Since he is a thief also.
