    The Grand Opening of the remodeled Dating Service did not go well. There was a murder the first night, rape the second night, and more murders since. The Owner of the service is being stalked, while every client is a suspect and potential victim. Even though the service itself was doing a brilliant job of bringing lovers together, after another client was harmed, Katrinka shut down the service.

    It's been a month. Katrinka has decided to reopen the service, starting with a new mixer. The party is a decadent Hollywood style mixer. A very expensive tribute to her loyal clients!

    But the serial killer is still out there. There were three other murders all connected to the Dating Service, and yet the police aren't sure they were done by the same killer. He could still strike again at any moment. Can those brought together by the Service live through the trauma?


    The owner of the Dating Service. Ms. Carrel is a workaholic that cares a lot about her business and clients. She makes the effort to be actively involved in everyone's life. Katrinka had the misfortune of being in the wrong place at the wrong place and was raped by the serial killer! He now sends her messages about the people he is going to kill.

    Working at the Dating Service, she is Katrinka's second in command. Deborah is protective of her boss, not keen on romance, and is being vexxed by her friend Malcom and his dramatic life!

    Fresh in to college, Paris volunteered to work at the Dating Service because it's a place her crazy grandfather likes to end up when he escapes from his nursing home. She is unaware that she's the object of affection for the serial killer.

    A twisted young man that has a BIG secret. He joined the service "at urging of his friends" but in reality was scoping out people to murder. His behavior has gotten increasingly worse ever since he became infatuated with Paris. He is very good at hiding himself and his intentions. No one outside of April suspects him.

    A rambunctious party girl who joined the Service looking for some hot booty! Having met Sean, they are currently dating. She's meddlesome , fancies herself a little detective and is deadset on trying to catch the serial killer herself. April is the only one that has been suspicious of Drake from the start.

    Having joined the Service just to meet some temporary booty, he has accidentally fallen in love with the vivacious April!

    Only needing a place to stay, he was going to temporarily crash at Deborah's until he had his life worked out. Malcom never expected to roll in to a whirlwind romance with Adare.

    A client of the Service who inadvertantly met and fell for Malcom when they met by chance at the Service. He ended up being a target for attack and one of the few that lived!

    April's older brother, all he really wants to do is keep an eye on his younger sister. By chance, he has gotten involved with Vincent, one of the Service's clients.

    Once of the Service's clients, he met and got involved with Jonathon during the Park event!

    A zookeeper that has recently joined the service, hoping to meet a nice woman. He has an interest in Paris and is Avani's friend.

    A beautiful newspaper intern looking to meet some nice women through the service.

    A mystery novel writer who is looking for inspiration for her next novel as well as a companion!

    A fashion model that is Malcon's exgirlfriend. She's obsessed with trying to get him back!

    Former Japanese model looking to meet men!

You shee, back in Nineteen forty-shree, I wash at a car wash. Yesh, we shtill had thoshe back then...(Murray begins to ramble: He's a happy-go-lucky guy, quite witty. As a not pretty fellow he had to develop a interesting personality. He read a lot of books on the subject, so he has 40- year old women's views on dating, which are contradictory. As a result, he'll be very mixed up in his approach. He can get lost in what he's doing too, and fall asleep into deep reflection.

    Others See Me As:
    Neighbor 1: What do you think about that new dodger, eh.. what was it, Murry? Murray?

He also likes metal jazz music, and to lay back wi(sh)th a good book as well. Napping is pretty high on his list)

    A Bit About My Life: Eh? My life? Well, I guess I could tell you a shtory that would shum it up pretty good. Maybe, Nineteen Fishty-shix...(He was born in Orange County, some long time ago. He frolicked in the greens, rode his Schwinn, was a good little boy. He used a lot of gel, and had that eager puppy love approach, which worked, back then. He got a job as a janitor and said "gee" and "golly" a bit too much. His teeth fell out around 15 years back. (Yep, dey shure did. I wash jusht watchin' shome telly, and I felt a short of looshness....)

    PLAYER NOTES: Cirque De Soleil is catnip for Murray.

    A Bit About My Life: Well, I was born here in rockin' California, right at the end of the Golden Age of Metal. My dad showed me the light when I was 10, with some jammin' glory, dude.

    I'm Looking For: Females

    Returning Member: No. One day while working he saw a flyer on the door of "Higher Grounds" that advertised the dating service.

    My Picture: [​IMG]

    I Describe Myself As: Fun and outgoing, but at the same time a little shy in new situations. Once he meets and feels comfortable around people he can be a very funny guy. Is respectful of peoples feelings and always is there for a friend in need. Sean has a great sense of humor that sometimes gets mistook for cocky arrogance.

    Others See Me As: Shy, honest, caring, sarcastic, funny, When people first meet Sean he comes off as slightly withdrawn, but opens up after he feels comfortable.

    My Interests Are: Music, Cars, Girls, Nature and eating exotic foods.

    A Bit About My Life: Sean was born on the beach, well not "on' the beach, but in a small house two blocks away from the coast line. His father was a fisherman, who shortly after Sean's birth, vanished at sea. Since he never really knew his dad, he never really missed him. He was raised by a loving mother and grandmother and his childhood was more or less happy. After high school Sean got a job at the local Coffee shop "Higher Grounds" where he works at present time. He enjoys his job very much because of the opportunity it gives him to meet new people.

    PLAYER NOTES: Sean has never been in a relationship. He did, however, have a few awkward hook-ups at parties while he attended high school.

    Sean is picky when it comes to girls, he is always looking for that perfect combination of brains and beauty.

    He believes in true love and finding that one special person.

    While working as a barista, he lost contact with his old friends as most of them went off to college.

    I'm Looking For: A man. A -real- man. One that's not going tell me stories, ignore me on my birthday or sleep with my room mate. I'd like him to be tall, good looking, health conscience, but not one of those crazy vegetarians.

    Character Name: Katrinka Carrel
    Gender: Female
    Species/Race: Human
    Age: 30
    Birthplace: Olympia, Washington
    Occupation: Owner of a Dating Service


    General Appearance: Shoulder length dark brown hair, hazel eyes, 4'10". Fair skin and a very small frame. Katrinka looks more 22 than 30 thanks to being obsessive about her health and some well done makeup.
    Strengths: Being LOUD.
    Weaknesses: Being too short to reach things.


    Current Goal/Purpose: Bring LOVE to the lonely masses!
    Talents: Reading People.
    Inabilities: Minding her own business.
    Fears: Sharks, jelly fish, crabs...er... Most ocean life. Katrinka can't swim and thus hates most bodies of deep water.
    General Personality: A bubbly socialite! Katrinka likes to see and be seen. She is constantly interacting with people, getting to know new people, reconnecting with friends, chatting, gossiping, networking. She is "on" ALL the time. Close friends thinks she meddles too much in other people's business and not enough on her own life. On the bright side, most people get along with her and she hides her temper VERY well.
    Inner Personality: Busybody much? Katrinka has no desire to look at the failings of her own life, so it's easier to focus on everyone else's. She clearly doesn't take her own advice. Most of her issues stem from a past relationship that she just can't get over.
    Secret: Katrinka filled out her own dating profile once, but she's never posted it in the service. She'll kill someone if anyone finds it. (She also keyed someone's car once, but like hell she's going to admit who or when or why.)


    General History: An only child with a pretty average life growing up. Katrinka went through all of the typical things in her childhood and teen years. Divorced parents, teenage dramas, college failings, and major heartbreak! Her college career didn't go over too well, but her advice for friends? Golden. After someone's crackpot suggestion of her starting a dating service, Katrinka considered the idea seriously. It took a lot of work, but now Katrinka's Dating Service is a GREAT business. She's helped many couples find their love and her life is right on track!

    I Describe Myself As: Quiet and withdrawn to strangers. Hidden sense of humor, starting with corny jokes or dark humor depending on who's around. Serious when life calls for it. Enjoys cheering people he likes up. Willing to actually help people out and not just stand around like it's not his problem.

The whole family is hilarious & supportive. Made it out of all standard schooling and now just trying to find a place in the world.

    PLAYER NOTES: At a stage where he's moving around a lot, Leonardo isn't exactly looking for someone who wants to settle down. . . but neither is he doing this just to chase tail.

I know I’ve been rich for a long time but like, getting a job and having to move to Washington has really like, grounded me and stuff!

    Name: Paris Taylor
    Gender: Female
    Age: 18
    Job: College Student
    I'm Looking For: I'm not looking to meet men, I'm trying to find my granddad!
    Returning Member: Hell no!
    My Picture:
    I Describe Myself As: A down to earth, fun and friendly person. Maybe a little sarcastic sometimes, and I guess I'm not all that comfortable with lots of people, but... wait a second, I'm not filling this stupid thing out!
    Others See Me As: As a stranger! Because I don't like chit chatting. Can I please get in now?
    My Interests Are: Sigh. Studying, listening to music, and tv shows about aliens.
    A Bit About My Life: I am HERE looking for my GRANDFATHER who has escaped from the nursing home again. Let me in!
    PLAYER NOTES: Paris is not signed up for the dating service, and is clearly looking for her slightly batty grandfather. Mister Murray Taylor. :D
  15. Name: Deborah Raleigh

    Gender: Female

    Age: 26

    Job: Bounty hunter/one of the girls at Katrinka's/part time college student!

    I'm Looking For: None of the above ... Okay, males. Really I don't see why I'm filling something like this out ...

    Returning Member: Uh ... no. *suspicious look*

    My Picture: Damnit, do I have to ...?! Fine, fine. Five foot five. Approximately 125 lbs. Slight tan to the skin. Dark brown hair and jet black eyes. My dad says I inherited my mother's "full set of lips" which creeped me out a bit but he means well. It just comes out the wrong way. Slim and fit. I could run circles around most jerks. I'll try and find a picture around here ...

    I Describe Myself As: So I'm not your average girl and I suppose some guys would think I'm high maintenance but life is too short to care what they think. I've got a busy schedule and I like to keep up with things. I like to get the job done efficiently and on the first try so I might spend a little more time than people would want me to. I'm not a bad girl when you get to know me but I guess I have a few ... insecurity issues about the opposite sex I have to work out. And don't you dare tell me it's because I haven't met the "right guy" and the "right guy" happens to be you!

    Others See Me As: A tomboy. A workaholic. A chick who'd rather spend more time with her cats than the rest of the human race. Each of my brothers (and on one occasion, my mom) asked me if there was a slight chance I was a lesbian and hadn't told them yet. Seriously. They need a life.

    My Interests Are: ... Not that it's anyone's business, of course. Studying. Listening to music. Hanging out with my two cats. Shooting at the firing range or just playing those FPS down at the arcade when I really want to get stress out. Swimming down at the community pool.

    A Bit About My Life: So being a bounty hunter is actually a family business. My dad met my mom while he was a bounty hunter. She thought it was neat so she became his office manager slash research girl. Then they had my older brother who thought it was the coolest job in the world and so did the son after that and the son after that ... Then they had me. I also thought it was pretty cool at first but then I told the family I wanted to find my own way and they were cool with that. I figured I go to school and my mom suggested I look Katrinka up, maybe she had a part time job I could work at while going to school ... And here, I am.

  16. I hope you're still accepting. If not, then I guess you can discard this ;P

    Name: Adare Liffey
    Gender: Male
    Age: 25
    Job: Bartender (The Tiger's Bite)
    I'm Looking For: A man who isn't afraid to be seen in public with me, who isn't ashamed that we're both men, or that I take life as an opportunity to truly live. I want someone who can put me in my place, or soothe me when the need arises.
    Returning Member: No, he used to be surrounded with potential dates. Until now.
    My Picture:
    Show Spoiler


    I Describe Myself As: A great time. Sometimes a little hot-tempered, but loyal.
    Others See Me As: Quick to fight and even quicker at making merry with plenty of alcohol involved, a devoted friend to those that can stand the moods.
    My Interests Are: Making everyone feel good about the world, keeping people from taking life too seriously. Singing, no matter the occasion, and dancing also.
    A Bit About My Life:
    My mother and father moved from our home near Galway, Ireland when I was a child. Since, the homes have dotted the United States, finally settling in Washington where Da suffered a massive heart attack, dying in his sleep. My gentle mother soon followed, but by then I was a teenager and saw myself through finishing school and becoming a bartender.
    PLAYER NOTES: No one too severe, or trodden down in the tracks of life will appease Adare's desire to make the most of life, because he knows how short it can be and believes life is to be lived.
  17. Name: Malcolm Thomas
    Gender: Male
    Age: 28
    Job: Professional photographer (on hiatus)
    I'm Looking For: Both, actually!

    Returning Member: Nope! Guess you could say this is my "first time"!
    My Picture: 5'11 ... Yep, just missed the 6'0" mark! Oh well. I'm about 130 lbs., give or take. Black hair is a bit long, almost to my shoulders now and I have a goatee. I have a really nice smile, a bit of a tan from wandering around the place. My eyes are a light brown, hazel. I got that from my mother. God rest her soul. I like to wear boots, jeans, a t-shirt, and my favorite leather jacket.
    I Describe Myself As: A laid-back guy, looking to get away from the busy life of being a professional photographer. I like to smile and laugh a lot and yeah, I don't take things very seriously. I used to be the kind of guy who had to run on a strict schedule but not anymore! I am a simple man of simple pleasure who had the taste of the so-called "high life" and decided it wasn't for me. I make friends pretty easily and I sometimes come off as a party animal, when in fact, a quiet night at home with someone special is better than any party I've ever been to.
    Others See Me As: Hehe ... Well, let's see. To some, I'm a real good friend to play pool with and get drunk with. Debbie's mentioned multiple times that I'm a pain in the ass to have. (She's quite a flirt.) Affectionate, caring. Pretty popular with people. A real people person. A decent guy you can take home to meet your parents if you want.
    My Interests Are: Photography! Traveling around! Cracking jokes and having a good time!
    A Bit About My Life: I'm an only child and like an adopted son to the Raleighs. I'm best friends with all three sons and even Debbie, although she might say otherwise. My dad is a mechanic who didn't think too much of his son liking photography. Mom encouraged it so much, I managed to get a scholarship and go to school for awhile. I got myself an internship with a modeling company and after that, I was a real busy guy. Took pictures of models and celebrities, helped make them famous. But I decided to go on hiatus when I got the news mom was developing cancer. She died shortly afterwards but I took what she told me to heart. To live my life but find someone to share it with when I was ready. And ... here I am!
  18. Name: Jonathan Harvard

    Gender: Male

    Age: 25

    Job: Lawyer

    I'm Looking For: Pan-sexual

    Returning Member: No, my sister signed me up

    My Picture: [​IMG]

    I Describe Myself As: I'm a laid back kind of guy. I go with the flow and just let things happen to me. I'm kind and well mannered and know how to treat people with respect. I watch over my sister while I can because she's quite a handful but other then that I like to go out and have fun on my own as well.

    Others See Me As:

    April: Like, ohmigosh, I love my big brother so much, he's totally nuts. Like this one time I was drinking, right, and he was all "April, get off the limo! Mom and Dad are totes going to kill you!" then he pulled me off and I was like "awww thanks big bro" and he was all like "no prob" and then we went shopping and I totes got him the CUTEST outfit and I got myself...

    My Interests Are: Photography, surfing, horseback riding, driving nice cars, nights out at clubs, meeting people, intelligent debates

    A Bit About My Life: April should have covered most of this in hers for our childhood. I went to Harvard Law (My parents thought it was funny) and moved out to Washington state to begin work at a firm, been here ever since.

    PLAYER NOTES: April's big brother. Not as dumb, not as wild.

    Nickname:Jacks of all trades
    Name: Kenneth Lim
    Hometown: Santa Clara, CA
    Win ratio:10/18 professional tournments; International Poker Champion final 3 four tournments in a row; lasts year's Platinum Jacket winner at World Hold'em Nationals.
    Playing Style: Slow plays with a nasty agressive streak towards the end games.
    Motto: "Poker is War. And all is fair in war."

    A native to the picturequse Santa Clara, Platinum Ring Winner Kenneth Lim was practically raised with cards in his hands. At the age of 6, Kenneth had sat in on his father's tobacco clouded home sessions of Hold'em, learning how to count from just sitting in the games! It wasn't too long before he picked on the rules and how to play the game, soon helpping his dear old Dad win games with uncanny nack to read the other players. He picked up the cards himself at the games at the age of 14,dominating his father and his father's friends games. That winning streak didn't change too much when he was old enough to enter the professional circits, topping in the final 3 at his very first local International Poker Champion tournment. Sucess has seemed to grown with him as the years goes by, with Kenneth becoming the youngest Platinum Ring Champion just last year with his fabled hand of 4 of a kind Jacks. Who knows what lies in store for the young star of the Hold'em word, but anyone that knows the game surely knows that that ring of his won't be lonely for long.

    Player notes: I am dragging in a character outside of the dating service into the situation as he has the misfortune of stumbling into crazy Rapist mess by just being in the same hotel room as Dating Service gang is staying at.
  20. Name:
    Vincent Rogan
    I'm Looking For:
    Returning Member:
    My Picture:
    Show Spoiler

    I Describe Myself As:
    Honest, sensitive, passionate and protective. I'm also a hardcore badass. ;)
    Others See Me As:
    Picky, intimidating and uneducated. That's just 'cause they don't know me... I don't get close to just anybody!
    My Interests Are:
    Going to concerts, having a few drinks, late night walks, trying new food and dying peoples' hair.
    A Bit About My Life:
    I graduated high school with flying colours and dropped out of college after the first year and a half. I was more interested in being with my band mates (I was the drummer). It was the time of my life while it lasted; we always had great gigs. It came time to move on, though. Some of them had better things waiting for them, so I was left in this city alone. My parents never talk to me and I never talk to them; I think they're still ashamed of me. So I work at a very nice bar where I listen to mediocre bands, bringing me back memories of the good old days. Making drinks earns me plenty of tips and I enjoy it a lot more than going to school.
    Vincent's longest relationship was juuust under a year. He's picky, but enjoys flings still. He knows he'll know when he finds the right one.
