    The World
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It is the year 2567, and our planet has been dying a slow death for many decades. Consumed by the many problems that the twenty-fifth century has decided to blatantly ignore, Earth is no longer what it used to be. Global warming has made the sea levels rise, flooding many countries and consuming small islands whole. Even those who have managed to escape the wrath of mother nature have most of their territory flooded; in fact, according to recent estimates, the landmass available to humans has decreased by 67%. As such, it should not be a surprise that every single country has changed, including the United States of America. Now simply called Sector 38, the autonomy that its many states have possessed is completely gone, and its democratic system was replaced with a totalitarian regime. The few cities that have prospered under the rule of the new government have become sprawling metropolises divided into districts that may as well be small cities themselves.
    Solar energy is a prevalent source of energy on Earth now, due to global warming destroying the Earth’s atmosphere and increasing hours of daylight on the planet in certain areas. The planet has been introduced to many different sources of electrical appliances, and mechanical aids. However, the majority of the planet is a wasteland. Few areas are what modern day society would deem ‘clean’ and ‘tidy’. Regions known as the Slums, where the rebellions devise their operations around, show obvious signs of ageing. Old signs lay torn away from their structures, along with 21st century cars rotting beside them.
    The capital, Vinea, appears to be more up to date and suitable for the era. The cyborgs ride in several ways. Forms of motorcycles and aerial vehicles are main sources of transportation. Few of them have their own source of transport built into their systems, along with other additions too such as their own weapons. Projectile weapons are still common with their modern day alterations, most cyborgs hold some sort of weapon in their inventory.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    The Story
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    Advertisements spread across Vinea in Sector 38, speaking of an upcoming upgrade which was to be implemented into all human beings. Its name was “Project Rein”. Little information was given across the live holographic streams feeding to the main precincts and city squares. On the advertisement, government figureheads, all sat in a line, explaining how Project Rein would benefit humans in Vinea. It would be a cure for disease and extend their life span, a way for families to no longer rely on technology to get by. They were informed it would be an investment of a lifetime, and people would thrive with their longer and happier lives. Along with this, after they had received the upgrade, it was no longer necessary for them to pay taxes towards their economy.
    -​
    The majority of the population was rushing to the chance at joining this program. 89% of Vinea’s population joined the register on their own accord. However, the other 11% did not agree with the compulsory demand and wanted a choice. The scientist behind all operations was Professor Führer, a lead academic and master of cybernetics and medical philosophy. However, little was known about this man, and his intentions behind Project Rein. He wasn’t the face of the company or a figurehead which people familiarised with from commercials. As well as miniscule information being known about this man, people were starting to come to realise the very thin layer of knowledge they had on any of this. When these issues were addressed with the company, the responses were vague and bypassed the main points of question. People tried to enquire about those who had already been taken in to have the upgrade on the treatment, and see the features it gave them. However, they were just informed the treatment was not yet complete, and it would take longer than expected.
    -​
    After some time, word got out about just what was going on at the base of Project Rein, and what was happening to families and their loved ones. It had become known that what Professor Führer, and the rest of the government and its military, was up to. It was creating another race, another species of sorts. They were making off with human beings and programming them with all kinds of technology. Which lead them to believe that what could only be described as Cyborgs were being manufactured with their bodies. Their false promises of all the benefits of the program was simple a way to keep the reality of it low key, and avoid any protest. However, Vinea wanted to be the most superior city that any Sector had to offer, and so they began building their own army. The theory was later confirmed when these beings joined the officers who came to escort people into Vinea’s centre.
    -​
    Through the years, as the scheme was being implemented; people were growing more fearful of the government and their actions. It had gotten to the stage where acts of violence were being carried out in order to force human beings from their homes, to the Program’s institute. The government declared martial law and deemed it mandatory for all people to have these features integrated into their bodies. Causing civilisation to fight back, and rebel.
    -​
    Rebellion groups started to split off into different factions due to disputes over leadership, and disagreements for choice in base operations. Some groups wanted to set headquarters in places like the sewers, and others argued this was too obvious. So what was once a collective colony of rebellions divided and parted ways in which groups formed their own establishments. There were particular districts within Vinea which different rebellion groups held ‘ownership’ over. These were in areas which were nothing more than slum’s that were covered in graffiti. However, whenever one of the cyborgs would walk through the streets, and search high and low with every element of technology they had programmed into their systems, no sight of life could be found. Wherever they were hiding, it was good.
    -​
    The majority of the Cyborgs stayed with the program, and did not attempt to escape. This was most likely due to the software set up in their newly functioning systems. The professor and any other with power, were able to command them against their will with just the sound of their voice. However, this did not prevent some from trying. Surprisingly, a small number of the machines detached themselves from the institute and fought bravely to return to their families. Selected few of the escapees remained on good terms with the institute. Due to this, Cyborgs could make trips to and fro from the main institute. Through this, they were able to provide their families with weapons, armour, food, and supplies. For so long this was occurring unnoticed, until patrolling cyborgs caught sight of others like them walking with packs. Although, as soon as another’s locater locked on to them, their systems were scrambled. The rebellions had found the technology to cause this effect when the cyborgs were in a certain radius of their base.
    -​
    So, whilst the once filled streets are desolate wastelands, minus the occasional cyborg officer patrolling, the slums somehow stay populated. Wars between rebellions and cyborgs break out, and undercover street fights occur within the districts of Vinea’s prime locations. Where are the family members of the cyborgs searching? What will be the government’s next move with their master race? What with some of the rebellions escaping the capital, will other cities or Sector’s find out and interfere?

    The Districts
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------​
    Significant Districts:- Please feel free to create your own as well, just add it in a description in your character sheet. However, for those who just want to slot themselves in to a district here are a few for your choice. For those who don’t want a district, feel free to leave that part blank on your character sheet.
    -​
    District AX-138: This region has been recognised to be one of the largest within the division of human rebels still on the planet. It’s area is quite close to the centre, and their base has been rumoured to be set in the sewers which have not been used for centuries.
    -​
    District AX-238: This region has actually been rumoured to be more of a female-orientated district. The group was strongly connected to District AX-138 initially, before the leader attempted to remove all rights they had to battle, and deemed them as pro-creating beings only. This meant that they were not allowed to promise their hearts to one, and were not allowed to fight in battle. They have been rumoured to live in what used to be an apartment complex.
    -​
    District AX-338: This particular district has been known to stay hidden through this entire ordeal. It’s where abouts are unknown due to the people who make up the group fearing the idea of death. It does not hold much technology or defensive capabilities but works as a place of keeping people alive, and healthy. Between the entire districts, district AX-338 has been known for its medical talents.
    -​
    District AX-438: Little is known on this district, however its numbers are small and its where abouts are on the far outskirts of Vinea.

    This has been stressing me out for so long, I wanted to create a role play which adopted a cyborg element in a dystopian world. Many people aided me with this, so I would love to just give them some credit as it wouldn't be here without them. So a big thank you to them! (Particularly LStorm!)

  2. Loridia Hayven
    26 year old, human, Loridia, is a member in District AX-238, she stands as a guard currently on watch for officers invading their territory. For the most part she is easy going, and understanding. However, her temper is a little short for some peoples comfort and she can think irrationally at times too. She would give her life to save those around her, especially her sibling Candace. She had no quarrels in terms of leadership with her group, and originally was satisfied with how things were originally when all the districts were just one colony. However, things changed when she became a prime candidate at the age of eighteen, she was at legal age to join the women in pro-creating children for the rebellion. To save on details, men started to have their way with her to the point of where she forcefully tried to fight them off.

    Things started to get heated, and after a year of coping with the abuse, she came to realise that her sister will soon be turning the age she did when she was put forward. In a worry she did everything in her power to prevent what was happening to her, to happen to her sister. Taking her by her hand she followed on with the AX-238 group, and swore to her she would never be put through what the other women had to suffer. Making her lifes mission to protect her till her days end.
     
  3. Name: Cid
    Age: 19
    Race: Cyborg
    District: City Centere
    Personality: Very old fashioned, having been raised by his grandfather, he's wise for his years, trying to always think before he acts. Also very cautious, he was one of the last to be captured in his area and implemented into the Program. He acts as coolly as he can, but his temper gets the better of him if there's anything wrong going in front of him that he can stop. Cid can also be stubborn, often believing he knows best, but his heart is always in the right place. He can be very passionate when it comes to fighting against Cyborgs, having been forcefully changed into one.
    Background: Cid was raised by his grandparents, mostly his grandfather due to his grandmother dying when he was 3. He was one of the last known descendants of a line of people called the "Irish", something he'd never really understood. His grandfather simply told him, "Act like a man, that's what bein' Irish stands for!" and he took it to heart. He'd had a horrible temper as a child, and was beaten many a time by his grandfather. He never realized until later in his life that he did it to strengthen him for this harsh world he would soon have to live in alone. After his grandfather passed when he was 17, he vowed to never raise his temper in hatred or rage again. He told himself only to fight for those who couldn't protect themselves. He was taken from the violent raids of Project Rein, killing several cyborgs to try and protect a family from capture. He failed, and was taken and integrated as a Cyborg. His willpower was immense though, not willing to kill on anyone's orders. He managed to be one of the escapees, trying his best to avoid any contact with someone who could scramble him and make his body lost to Project Rein and the Program's schemes...
    Appearance: Coming Soon!

  6. Name: Vivienne "Vivi" Lardous
    Age: 21
    Race: Human
    District: District AX-338
    Personality: Vivi is mostly a calm and gentle person. She doesn't want from much, but she has a deep curiosity and drives her to seek out knowledge. Vivi is a good-natured person and she always strives to help others. The doctor in her causes her to want to help those in need. Vivi is intelligent and quick to pick up stills but if not interested in what she is learning, it is difficult for her to understand and she messes up quite easily. Vivi doesn't take to failure well and is something of a coward as well, wanting to avoid conflict instead of facing it. Unsure of herself, it takes time for her to be completely sure of big changes in her life.
    Background: Vivi was born in another district or so she was told. She was just a child when she was taken from her family and has only known her life in 338 and the adopted family she was taken into. As a child she had fun playing with her "siblings" and the other children around her, but Vivi was also put into training to be a doctor. She resisted the idea at first but as she aged she grew to like the idea.
    Vivi had a pretty calm childhood as her district lived mostly outside the chaos that engulfed other districts. It wasn't until she reached puberty and overheard a conversation she learned that she had been stolen from District AX-238. Vivi had not learned much more as her main Guardian sub-scummed to an illness and she was afraid of bringing it up to the others. Still she was curious as to why she was taken and has made plans to leave and search out her old family. She is still currently in-training and unsure if she would be able to leave without any problems.

  8. Name: Zane McHenry
    Age: 18
    Race: Human
    District: AX-438
    Personality: Zane is a friend, outgoing person. He tries to bring a smile or a laugh to anyone he sees upset.. He is very trust worthy, and friendly once you get to know him, though when it comes time to fight, that's what he does. He even tries to keep every one relaxed in battles, by telling stupid jokes or stories.
    Background: Zane was born on the outskirts of Vinea to a rather small family, only having an older sister. Zane grew up listening to all the horrible things about the government, the stuff that the older gentlemen talk about. He swore when he was 9 that he would never give into the government. When Zane turned 14, his family was killed, with no reason given. This angered Zane, to the point where he walked into rebellion group of his district, though he didn't totally agree with the way they wanted things, and joined up. He has been fighting along side his district ever since.
    Appearance: [​IMG]
    Zane is five feet nine inches tall, with brown eyes and brown hair. his hair is like a jungle, very rarely brushing it. He likes wearing his black leather coat that he found in his father's closet after his family was killed. He also wears a celtic style charm around his neck that was his mothers. If asked, Zane says his most prized possession was his coat, necklace, and the braided black braclet his sister made for him. He never takes his braclet or necklace off, and never leaves the house without his coat. Other then that, he is found with blue jeans, and a pair of black combat boots.

  11. Name: Nataljia Moskaluke

    Age: 23

    Race: Human

    District: Formerly District AX-238

    Personality: Natalija a strong and of course rebellious woman, she can't even refuse the simplest challenge as she feels she must always set things straight before she loses the chance too. Slightly hot-headed and packing along an attitude, Natalija is definitely not the one to back down to any challenge and or restrict herself to anybody's leadership.

    Because of this she can be rather mean at times, though she has her reasons. Natalija is even more so agressive with men, due to her past, and hasn't brought herself to ever befriend a man since her teen years. And inversely, Natalija is noticeably softer towards girls and women alike. Rebellious, passionate, and determined, she can make quite the enemy.

    Background: Natalija, a District AX-238 native, she grew up there amongs the growing rebellions, unsuprisingly getting involved with the rebels at the young age of thirteen. Her parents had died and she lived with the orphan girls and as a rebel she worked with them for the years to come, not knowing what they were planning for all the women to join adulthood. She took pride in helping out the rebellion, learning survival skills and of course arts of warfare.

    Though when the leader announced the new role of all the women somewhere along the time of Natalija's eighteenth birthday she was at first stricken with fear by all the stories of her orphan friends going through the most horrible things. She contemplated running but was too late to act on it, and subsequently spent the night with her first ever man on the evening of her birthday. As you would guess she was traumatized. But when the second man came in she snapped. Using the skills she had trained in while she was younger she attacked them with a knife stolen from the first man, killing one of them. Horrified but at the same time releived she knocked the other out and stole clothes and supplies before escaping her district, the leader's later labeling her a traitor.

    And now for five years Natalija has been operating alone, still not forgetting the cause that lead her to be a rebellion. Though she refuses to cooperate with the other rebels. Thus setting her aside from two large groups as another tiny party. Among the goverment she was a terrorist and among ther rebels a traitor. Her personality has definitely hardened since then and her looks on the people even more so.

    Appearance: Natalija is an athletic woman with a slim but still sturdy built. She isn't particular curvy, leaning more twoards the skinny spectrum, though her thighs are pretty strong from running and her abs very noticeable, though in a pleasant way.. She has a light brown tanned tint to her skin and vibrant auburn eyes. She wears black eyeliner along the top of her eyes which end in delicate curves, as well as a red-brown lipstick on her plump lips. She has long wavy black hair with barely noticeable caramel highlights.
     
  12. Name: HK-001

    Age: 46

    Race: Cyborg

    District: City Centre

    Background: Originally a member of a Spec Ops corps of the military, he volunteered for Project Rein when it was in its infancy; becoming the prototype and spearhead of the operation. His decision was primarily fuelled by the loss of his legs at the hands of an IED whilst on duty. The "upgrade" which was, at the time, in experimental stages promised him the freedom of a new pair of legs and redeployment into active duty.
    Now the captain of a cyborg equivalent of a SWAT team, he is often the "guinea pig" of new developments in the cyborg technology, however being the prototype also means that some of the improvements made before full-on implementation of the operation are not present in him; his alloy isn't as robust, and he doesn't have as rigorous programming, meaning that overall he is closer to a human than the majority of the other cyborgs, though he is just as unwavering in his loyalty to the Project.

    Personality: Every inch the military persona, he's even forgotten his old human name; opting instead to use his Project designation "HK-001", or simply "#1". Even without the programming which requires the other cyborgs to do as told, he is unquestioning when carrying out a mission and ruthless in his execution of orders.
    When not completely focussed on a task at hand he has an odd sense of humour, which he retained in his transition, along with a love for heavy music.


    Appearance:

    The "Centaur" vehicle shown here is one of the newest developments of the Project: a potential extension from his torso, which moulds to his cybernetic legs, he controls it with his own circuitry as though it were a part of his own structure.

  16. Name:
    Skylar 'Stryker' Evans

    Age:
    30

    Race:
    Human

    District:
    District AX-200
    This district [AX-200] was used to manufacture weapons and technological goods, as well as store them. When Stryker's group of rebels moved in, they took over a couple of the disused factories, and found a good deal of weaponry, if a bit outdated.
    Personality: Very war-like. He wishes to see an end to the government, and diplomacy is not an option.

    Background:
    Skylar came from a shady background. Nobody knew his mother, and everyone in the black market business knew his father. He was not an original citizen; he was sneaked into the city. His father was a scavenger, roaming the wastelands and the ruins, searching for different items. So Skylar also had a penchant to find goodies, and was taught how to use things to their most, without much wasting. He is a survivor in a land of goodies waiting to be taken.
