    Paradisio Mortem II: New Age
    Rp by Angl

    [​IMG]

    The human body is a frail thing, despite all it survives through in a day. Humans have always sought a way to cheat death, and what better way to do so than out with the old and in with the new? After a strange pandemic spread through the world causing spontaneous organ failures, a savvy business man stepped up to the challenge of solving this dilemma. His idea was that if there were bad organs; why not give the people healthy ones so they could continue their lives? This ‘genius was Legato Giovanni, and his purpose was not to help the human race but to profit from it. A dark tyrant with a cold heart, the world was his oyster and the city of Paradisio was his home base.

    With Legato’s reign repossession of organs past payment was legalized, and he sent out his own crew known as Cutters to retrieve his overdue property. Their methods were crude and the bodies were simply discarded in any way possible. He also had his own police force known as Dark Police. Stronger than most and highly trained combatants, they were just as much a force to deal with as his cutters. Not only that, but his empire also produced a powerful new catchall drug known as Xenogen. Synthesized on the streets, it was highly addictive, and the street counterpart was known as X. A dystopian paradise of disillusion and lost hope, Paradisio was a place of turmoil where one often lived in constant fear of their life.

    But, there were some who dared stand up against the tyrant, and defied his authority. The result was the near collapse of his empire, and Legato’s demise…


    [​IMG]

    Static from the radio, and then slowly a soft whine is heard slowly growing in intensity before sounds of chaos are heard. Among the chaos voices brokenly spoke…"We're here at ground zero where the crumbling remains of our late Legato Giovanni's empire begins to settle. No one has any idea what took place within these walls, but one thing is for sure. Survivors...are unlikely. There is no trace of Legato himself. I repeat, to all of Paradisio, there is no trace of Legato. What will happen to our city without our 'beloved' leader? Was this a terrorist attack? We will keep you posted on--" There is a shout and another loud whine as the next voice chirps in. "This is a sad day indeed. We have just been informed that the HQ of our beloved leader, Legato Giovanni, has come under attack from within. Details are scant, but we are unsure of the true damage this has done. we shall forever mourn this day in Paradisio--" A soft click and silence before a clear voice speaks out. "The empire has fallen! The empire has fallen! Legato has finally gotten what has long since been waiting for him! No longer do we have to hide in fear of our lives every second! Come free! Come out! Join me and celebrate this occasion!! We are free! We are free!”

    It’s been 10 years since Legato was taken down and Paradisio was set free of his reign. For a time it was unclear if Neocore would survive, but even in death Legato kept Neocore going via his underlings. One of his trusted underlings took control upon Legato’s death and began to carry out Legato’s continued plans in case of his death. No official leader was declared, but Neocore stood strong, and began to deal more with its outside satellite companies.

    Despite having no confirmed leader for over 4 years, the company remained in control even with small riots against them. Paradisio remained its stronghold. With no one controlling the citizens of Paradisio as close as Legato had, anarchy ensued between resistance factions and gangs on the streets. Someone had to be named top dog. Paradisio was still a mess, and 6 years after Legato’s death a new face appeared claiming to be the heiress to Legato’s empire. Huge controversy flared up over this accusation, but after two years of fighting the claim, the rumor was put to rest as fact. The girl has taken her rightful place as the new ‘heir’ to Legato’s legacy and is under the guidance of Legato’s right hand man who originally carried out his death wish plans. Though things are still a bit dicey, Paradisio is starting to calm down. The question is, as the daughter of one of the most ruthless men in Paradisio history…how will she rule over this disenchanted kingdom, and what obstacles will arise in this new age?

    It is the start of a new era for Paradisio, and anything is possible as the wheels of fate keep turning…

    PERSONALITY INFO

    Outer Personality: A suave business woman and someone who does want to make a difference for the better. She is a hard worker but very strict in her own sense, and has an air of innocence about her. Being the daughter of Legato most think she automatically has his ruthless side, but she has shown herself to have a more compassionate nature than her father and has that celebrity appeal/charm about her.
    Inner Personality: Much like her father she is quite driven and can be ruthless in her dealings. Her inner personality is a sly one with tricks and secrets. She isn't very trusting of others and will do almost anything to get her way. Her doe like eyes are very deceitful.

    BACKGROUND INFO

    General History: Alexandra Rimbauer lived a mysterious life. She grew up fatherless and was raised for a short time within the very streets Legato dominated. She knew well of the tyrant and had even seen her mother taken before her very own eyes at the young age of 8. Upon her 16th birthday she managed to escape the walls of Paradisio and began a life outside the city. She kept her tabs on the city but continued to live her life abroad until her 21st year of life when she found herself returning to the city. She had secrets she'd found out in her travels and wanted to set things right. She was a woman of opportunity after all. It took a few years of combating, but she finally proved her rightful ownership of Neocore. Legato's demise came at a perfect time...things were falling into place almost too well for her.
    Present History: Alexandra now has her rightful place as heiress of Neocore and is starting to take over the operations with Darien helping her along as the second in command. She hasn't been in control long, less than a year, but she is determined to make her name known. Already there are some aspects of Neocore that are going to change and as a public figure she is becoming more liked than her father...Beneath that doe-like appearance, though, something else is brewing...

  6. GENERAL INFO

    Name: Viridiana "Vee" Dempsey
    Age: 25
    Gender: Female
    Occupation: Ex surgeon for Neocore, currently stitches up gang members who know where to find her
    Residency: Section of high class falling into disrepair, but she spends all her time in the slums.
    Allegiance: Ex neocore, currently working as a mostly neutral party as far as gangs go. She supports the gang members as her way of getting back at Neocore.

    PHYSICAL INFO

    Appearance:
    [​IMG]
    Physique: Some muscle. Five feet, seven inches in height. Approximately ten stones in weight.
    Markings: Tops of her ears have thick silver piercings and her fingers are scarred from various surgeries she has performed. Nearly all of her vital organs have been replaced.
    Possessions: A small leather case containing a scalpel, a small bottle of rubbing alcohol, some heavy duty needles, strings of unknown composition, and a vial full of Xenogen.

    PERSONALITY INFO

    Outer Personality: No nonsense and sarcastic, she comes off as sometimes jaded and often bitter.
    Inner Personality: Confident in her abilities, she's full of anger with herself for having been taken in by Neocore previously. She wants to help others but despairs at the state of things and expresses these feelings with sarcasm and bitterness.
    Talents: Agile fingers make for quick patching up of wounds that people come to her with and her previous occupation as a surgeon means that she has a thorough knowledge of the body. This knowledge also makes her lethal with any object that she can pick up and stab, since she knows the softest and most vulnerable parts of the body.

    Faults: Lacks the willpower and stamina to engage in any sustained combat and she's useless if one expects her to fight with her fists. As a surgeon, she values the condition of her hands just barely below that of her life; she won't do anything with the potential of breaking fingers or wrists unless her life is at stake.

    Habits: Constantly preoccupied with trying to keep things as clean as possible, she has a habit of compulsively wiping her hands on her pants, especially when she's near something dirty. She frequently undercharges people for what her services are worth and will often let them go free of charge. She wouldn't care about the money at all except she needs to buy more materials for her practice.

    Likes: The smell of blood, the therapeutic repetitive motions of sewing a wound closed, and spicy food.

    Dislikes: That her smell of blood might mean something about her personality that she doesn't want to face, people who think that patching up wounds is easy or useless, and people who judge her based on her medical training and assume she's a secret agent for Neocore.

    Knowledge: Complete knowledge of the human body, thorough knowledge of drugs and their uses in conjunction with the body.

    BACKGROUND INFO

    General History: Once a surgeon for Neocore, her history with them extended past even that. To the father of a young daughter whose mind might be the death of him, or herself, he sought protection wherever it could be found. This less-than-ideal agreement for mutual benefit came from Neocore. In exchange for her father being muscle upon whom they could rely, his family would be left alone more or less and firmly out of the reaches of poverty. When she was older, this also became education for her. She was given opportunity far above that of ordinary children, which allowed her to cultivate her love of science and treating people.

    Unable to deal with the inhumane practices of Neocore exposed as she became a surgeon for their operations, Vee desperately wanted to leave not long after she entered employment with them but to do so would be nigh on suicide. She was inexperienced with the ways of the world, employed as a surgeon at the tender age of fifteen due to her talent and her ability to excel under pressure.

    Present History: With the temporary dip in efficiency, Neocore lost sight of Vee and she took the opportunity to fall of the grid and start trying to right a few wrongs. Now she has her makeshift clinic and treats nearly anyone, as long as they follow her strict requirements for maintaining peace and not harming her other patients.
     
  7. GENERAL INFO

    Name: Caine 'Kanine' Almos

    Age: A strong, youthful 39. 3 livers, a heart and kidney later..

    Gender: male

    Occupation: Owner of 'Caine's Chili house'. Which is really just a cover, as he is a ranking captain in the street gang DI5, standing for Demonic Intentions.

    Residency: Lives in the back room of the Chili house, in the slums of Paradisio.

    Allegiance:
    Member of DI5 (Demonic Intentions) Against Neocore.

    Info on DI5 (open)


    Formation and early life of gang.

    Shortly after the death of Legato and the apparent downfall of Neocore, many rebel factions and street gangs came to power on the streets. It was all out war for turf, power and drugs. Some groups formed simply to protect themselves and their family's from the violence, others formed to attempt to gain control of the lucrative drug trade, and some joined just to cause mayhem and raise hell. Enter DI5, Demonic Intentions. They were founded by a man named Vic Balsow. Vic was killed 20 minutes after he named the gang, by first having his eye's cut out, then gutted and strangled with his own intestines, by his best friend who then took control. That is how the gang operated in the early days; ruthless, nonsensical violence. They weren't the biggest gang, but they gained notoriety quickly and were left alone by any who valued their lives.

    Currently

    Known for being brutally sadistic and mercilessly vicious. They are feared for their methods, but even more so for their purpose. To kill and destroy everything that isn't DI5, plain and simple. While they have calmed down a lot since their foundation, and have focused more on money and turf control, there are still rumors that things such as cannibalism and satanic initiation ceremonies are common within their ranks. The gang is about 50 strong, mostly street soldiers, with 4 top members. Three captains and a Boss. The captains are the bosses one link to the streets, and the only ones who ever have contact with him.The boss is nameless and faceless and made to cut his/her own eye's out. This ritual is not only to honor it's founding member, but also as a sign of absolute commitment. When a man is chosen to be the leader of DI5, he must show that he trusts his gang enough to put his life in their hands, blindly making decisions for those that blindly follow him. Most agree that this is done more from stupidity than honor. After blinding himself, usually under the influence of heavy drugs and done with a razor blade, he is then taken to a secure location and will have contact with his three captains until his dying day.

    BACKGROUND INFO

    General History: Born to junkies and left to die in a dumpster.

    Screams echo down from a second story window and out into the cold December air. If a person were to follow the screams they would be led to a small, one room apartment at the end of a hallway in the "Green apple" apartment complexes, downtown Paradiso. Inside this apartment lived a pair of hopelessly addicted, utterly worthless and completely degenerate junkies. A man, if he could even be called that, sat on the floor with a glass pipe in his mouth and a butane torch at his side. The meth smoke that filled the room, as well as drifted into the bathroom where his screaming wife was in labor, was as thick and heavy as the foggiest London night. The man kept lighting the blackened pipe, over and over, as if the drug would somehow mask the dire situation at hand, he would later go on to use extensive amounts of X, but this is where his story ends as far as Caine is concerned.

    Finally the beast of a man happened to notice that the screams from his women being ripped open by new life had stopped. There was no noise at all now, only the silence of death. Approaching the bathroom the mans noes was filled with the sour stench of blood and afterbirth. He looked upon the scene with no change in expression at all. On the floor, next to its dead mess of a mother was the new born. Its father, with out even a second of hesitation, removed its mothers hands from around its neck and picked it up. Walking towards the back fire escape he opened the door of the second story building and threw the infant out into the night. The child didn't utter even a single cry as he fell the 15 + feet into a dumpster below. And so, discarded like a piece of trash, the story of Caine begins.

    Raised by sadistic nuns in a small church in unincorporated Paradiso, Caine developed a hatred for god, life and everything around him at an early age. He took to cutting himself, and later stole a straight razor from one of the priest and slit the mans throat, the first of many murders he would commit throughout his life. Shortly after the investigation that yielded no results, he left the church and began a life of crime, drugs and debauchery on the streets of Paradisio at the age of 13.

    Present History: Caine joined DI5 shortly after the down fall of Neocore. He worked his way up in the ranks from street thug to Captain in only three short years. He acquired a small amount of wealth through drug sales and human trafficking and bought a restaurant in Paradiso called The chili hut, he later changed the name to Caine's Chili house. It is less of a restaurant now and more of a base of operations and hide out for DI5. At present time Caine fears that the reestablishment of Neocore will result in the downfall of his gang. With things now calming down inthe street, Caine must learn to adapt while still being able to fulfill his unsatisfiable need for violence.

    BACKGROUND INFO

    General History:

    On Eric's (of course that wasn't his name then, his original name has been lost, systematically removed from all records from the moment Eric payed the final installment of his Neocore bill off) 13th birthday his mother was told that nothing further could be done for him. His death would come in a matter of months. The neurological disorder was spreading faster than the doctors could battle, his eyesight had been taken just days before and the charity's money had run out that morning. The doctors could do no more, not without money and certainly not without an idea of what the disease was. It was in that moment that a television crew had swept into the room and right behind them Legato Giovanni himself.

    Legato beamed at Eric and at his mother, held his mother's hand and offered his 'heartfelt' condolences. He then produced a contract. "I have come to offer you a full nuero response kit, a muscular enhancement and a new set of eyes. According to your medical reports, this disease is limited to your neuro pathways, and this kit should remove the disease entirely from your system. The muscular enhancement and the eyes should remove all the damage caused by the disease and should allow you to live a normal and healthy life."

    "We have no way to pay for this, sir..." his mother said from the edge of the room. She was starstruck by the presence of so powerful a man, obviously.

    "Have no fear, miss. As you will see in the contract, all payment has been deferred until six months after the boy's eighteenth birthday." With that Legato flourished the contract and produced a pen, both of which he pushed into his mother's hands. "You see my dear, you will have nothing to worry about, the debt will be the boy's to take care of once he is of age to do the task. We are simply assuring that he has the means to do such a thing!"

    It was a simple political move, another way that Legato would ingratiate himself on the everyday man. Little did those everyday men know that on the day that that first bill made it's way to Eric's home his mother died of a massive heart attack. With that bill still in her hand and a look of terrible anguish and surprise on her face. You see the first month's installment for payment to Neocore was more than Eric and his mother would have been able to make in ten months time at the only jobs they could find.

    Five years after the death of Eric's mother found Eric a Master Thief, already. He had had to do what was necessary to make the money to make those payments to Neocore. That meant taking from those rich and fencing what he could to make those payments. The threat of repossession and death was a constant bedfellow through those first years. Thankfully, Neocore didn't much care where the money came from so long as the money made it on time. And there were times that Eric ended up paying those repo-men his bill in person.

    Eric was within two blocks of the Neocore building on the night it fell and Legato was apparently killed. He was hunting one final trinket, one final score, that would give him the capital necessary to finally be free of Neocore forever. And the crown on that crime was that the trinket in question was Legato's! A pseudo-diamond more than a thousand carats in size had been created in one of the research labs in the Giovanni building and had been sitting on Legato's desk for almost a month. Eric had no plans on letting that diamond sit on that desk for a full month. It was on the final night of his planning that the explosion rocked the building and brought it to the ground.

    Eric thought he was free... finally free to live the life he wanted. Until that letter arrived, another bill with another ridiculous amount owed to the friendly Neocore Company.

    Present History:

    Eric has become a free and rich man in the intervening ten years. He has also had all radio identification tags and serial numbers removed from his implants and removed all proof of his prior life. He is free, true... but far from happy. Neocore still exists, they are still repossessing implants and killing those unlucky enough not to have payment. What Neocore has been able to do for people is amazing, but what they expect in payment is unconscionable in Eric's mind. In fact, Eric has decided he will no longer stand for it. He has returned to Paradisio for one final job, his last job, in fact. To ensure the true fall of Neocore. Once and for all.
