GENRE/DESCRIPTION OF RP: Horror, Mature, Modern. These are all elements that I am using for this particular RP. This is a particularly dark RP, I'm intending this to explore just how dark people can make their characters- how far they can push it, while trying to keep it realistic. How far down this rabbit hole will people go?
Four bodies have been found, all with notes near them. The victims all wrote why they had died- why they had deserved it.
They all credited one mysterious figure as their murderer- Dr. Black, but there was nothing to go on, to find this person who had killed these people- the notes were spotless, no fingerprints, nothing. Nothing on the bodies revealed any trails.
It's been a massive source of frustration for the police, and, by mistake and error, the name was released to the public. The name is now whispered throughout the area- people are scared out of their minds, trying to find some way to make their homes feel safer- but to no avail- no one will be safe until this mysterious "Dr. Black" is in the custody of police.
A week later, three more bodies showed up- this time on the police station's doorstep, without any security cameras catching sight of exactly how they got there.
All the bodies had notes as well, and all the notes were perfect matches to each victim's handwriting style.
Seven total, and each had a different reason for being killed- Oddly matching up with the seven deadly sins.
Then, one note, not from any of the victims, on the same type of paper, was found under one of the bodies.
In short, the note explained that the cops had a week to find the next group of seven victims before they were killed as well- then after that one week, each day, he'd kill one.
There was no way to keep the information from the public, because typed-up versions had been nailed to every door of every house in nearby suburbs. Fear was at the forefront, and caused frantic behavior.
The murderer had said in the note that each of his potential victims were criminals in their own right- merely a blight on the city that they lived in.
The cops didn't know where to start, so an investigator from another city was sent in to help.
Will these people survive?
NAME: What is their FREAKIN' NAME AGE: HOW OLD/YOUNG ARE THEY?! HEIGHT: HOW TALL ARE THEY? PLEASE use feet and inches... if you do just inches... I will have to actually use a calculator... WEIGHT: How much do they weigh? I prefer using pounds. APPEARANCE: Describe it or use a picture OCCUPATION: WHAT DO THEY DO FOR MONEY!?! Gotta have the moolah. PERSONALITY: Their general personality. HISTORY: Give a little tidbit of information, something to flesh out your character! ARE YOU A VICTIM?: YES/NO
OCCUPATION: Landscaping Assistant
PERSONALITY: Marcus lives for the moment. He's free, existing just for himself. He doesn't care if he steps on some toes to get what he wants, he just wants to be happy. He tosses people aside when they no longer suit him and he does so without hesitation.
Aside from all that, somewhere in there, he has a good heart. If someone really needed him and he had used them for his own ends or he cares about them, he might consider helping them out. If it was convenient.
Growing up with only his mother, she was a wonderful woman who loved her son and doted on him. She spoiled her little baby boy rotten, he was the apple of her eye. He loved his mother, but he had her to observe for how to interact with others when he was young.
As good as she was to her son, his mother was not a woman to be trifled with when it came to men. Marcus watched as men flocked around her - she was young and beautiful. They practically threw money at her feet and she took it, with hardly a second glance. He still adores her, but she tainted how he views other people in his life, particularly women.
Marcus distrusts women and if he uses someone, odds are he'll choose to toy a woman around over a man. He finds them to be manipulative and employs a "kill them before they kill me" attitude. Such is the way he grew up and with handsome features and the guise of charm, he's been quite successful. He can hardly remember the number of women he's slept with.
NAME: Aaron York AGE: 27 HEIGHT: 5'4" WEIGHT: 210 APPEARANCE: Thick dark brown hair, green eyes, wears a ragged goatee on his chin. Aaron is a little heavyset, but fit underneath the pudge. He is usually seen in a unbuttoned sports jacket with a snarky tee shirt underneath, with tan slacks and Lakai brand shoes. OCCUPATION: Web designer PERSONALITY: Aloof, often arrogant, as if his job is the most important/most intellectual thing in the world. He is, for all intents and purposes, rotten to the core. He will do anything to further himself - promote shamelessly his (subpar) websites, undercut others' hard work. He'll even steal if he feels like it. HISTORY: For a nerd, Aaron had a really easy childhood. He was literally given everything he wanted - though his parents mostly just wanted him to leave them alone. This side of the coin gave him a sense of aloneness that he twisted in his adult life to his arrogance. He's never had a girlfriend in his life, and probably never will.In high school he faked his SAT/ACT scores so that he could get into a high end, perhaps even Ivy League school, where he just couldn't hack it. After dropping out, he started tinkering with HTML code, and the rest, as they say, is history.
NAME: Marylin Smith AGE: 23 HEIGHT: 5'7 WEIGHT: 131 APPEARANCE:
OCCUPATION: She doesn't work PERSONALITY: Lazy, though the word isn't enough to describe this woman, who would likely tell someone to hand her a drink that was right next to her hand, and they were more than a few paces from her. She shows some heart every now and then, but more than often, she prefers to have people do things for her. HISTORY: Marylin is a classic case of a burn-out. She studied all through high school and worked all throughout college, only to find herself at the end of her rope when her younger brother was diagnosed with bone cancer. She dropped everything to take care of him, then lost the will to do anything else when he passed on from the terminal condition. She went from a highly successful student with a bright future, to that one friend who would stay on your couch and never leave or do anything. Most are fed up with her behavior. ARE YOU A VICTIM?: YES
NAME: Toma Weldan AGE: Barely Scraping 22 HEIGHT: Right at 5'0 ft WEIGHT: 120lbs. APPEARANCE:

Not to say she's naïve, far from it-- Toma's travels have earned her a prize cynical streak a mile wide-- she just doesn't like to hear no for an answer and tends to push asides any advice or opinion or even logic and common sense that doesn't suit her causes or lightens the mood.Domineering and outspoken Toma strives to make it to the top by any means possible,even ruining one's life or framing them. Due to her history Toma forms odd bonds with certain people she'll drag you along and have you do her bidding. Her twisted sense of affection for a person usually leads her to hurt you, heal you, and apologize only to cause harm again, normally in a greater motive of whatever she has conjured up for you in her plans.Though she is not all clever and manipulations if she cared enough. HISTORY:
All her life her family has given her a reason to never fail and to never fall in love.All the brutal slurs ,public bashing,and manipulative plots got her going.But the one thing she knew her family for as their ambition and how they managed to make it to whatever top they saw in store for them,she watched their every move and gazed upon their motive with widened eyes and an ajar mouth.The only one shielding her eyes from the worst of it was her sister, but she was taken at an fairly early age due to some foolish choices she had made in life.Toma learned how to be a climber without the ropes,she was set against stone and expected to rise with nothing but success,even if that meant cheating.Falling in love was another of her family flaws,her parents married for money and she knew it,they were considered swingers and never did stay home.But lesson learned ,Toma knew how to keep a fuck on speed dial if she needed it which was probably best, but someone always got hurt in the end because her heart was never really in it.With Lips ,Lies,Sex, and Luxury at her feet she craved for nothing but her own achievements ruining and knocking everyone who dared oppose her reaching her goal down with out as much as a flinch.

April is perversely unyielding. Always thinking she is right one way or another, even when she is wrong, it’s hard for to accept, this is because of her stubborn behavior that runs down from her family line. A trait that is vastly passed down within almost every house hold despite someone’s teachings, however, it’s more commonly known to run throughout the Summers home. She has the habit of being incredibly stubborn when it comes to her own personal matters; it’s very hard to persuade her otherwise. It’s nearly impossible to make her see in your view, because once she believe she’s right, it’s more so her own truth.
April is brash with her speaking; making sure whatever she thinks is properly translated to the other person. Not one person is an expectation for her irrational tongue-lashing when the time presents itself. However, even with her straightforward attitude, not wanting to beat around the bush when it comes to important discussion, she’s capable of conducting her sentences with influential intellectual points. This comes from her business lady persona which is part of her brash demeanor.
She is a strong-willed woman with many aspects, hardly showing any of her weaknesses in the face of peril and destruction. April doesn’t like to be seen in a position that breaks her image, because knowing how to control one’s emotions is something of great strength; she has been pushed to her limits on many occasions and has proudly swept those emotions away that would cause her image to be shattered into a million and one pieces.
When everything is done and said, with the strength and weaknesses of the mind, she is still incapable of shutting off the most common of emotions within the human’s nature. She feels sadness when sadness is meant; she feels anger when she is targeted against or a victim of unknown circumstances by another person’s hands. Even when she tries to hold back these emotions, they keep appearing, they keep making her second-guess her judgment and it’s hard for her toss them away. April is not a metal machine that is incapable of human compassion unfortunately so. She is a woman with a lot of pride; however, a woman still gets hurt.
HISTORY: She is probably presented well, which make people believe she is from a home of strong-bonds, strict parenting and good-wealth. This is where people are –wrong-. April comes from a very broken home, the only thing she possibly had to look forward to be her grandmother’s cooking on the weekends when she was able to visit. Her parents constantly bickered at one another, her father lost his job due to him getting caught in some type of embezzlement, not like April looked into the depths of his crimes, thanks to her mother’s family money and professional lawyers, he got out of the predicament. But this left a strain on the house-hold, she was no-longer of worth to the people around her, rumors and horrid sayings at school spread like wild-fire. Consuming the class-room in pity judgment, thus she became an out-cast, someone who was looked down upon and shunned for her parents bad-doings.
You think this was unfair?
Of course it was.
That never stopped it from happening, this made her rival Amber in-control of the class-room and that only made her school life more hell, like her home wasn’t hell-hole enough, she had to experience it on the outside too. April got tired of the bullying, the belittling and stood up for herself eventually, that’s when she got in with the wrong group of friends. People who stole and got what they wanted with violence and thief, did she care for the crimes that were committed? Subconsciously and unspokenly – yes. Though this did not stop her from assisting and doing it herself in order to feel something other than the usual out-casted feelings. She was taken underneath one male’s wing, he used definitely in ways of getting what he wanted, in return, she was given special treatment. April learned how to control men and seduce their minds with her looks and intelligent demeanor. Business was perhaps within her blood, because the blood of family runs deeper than any other. This is a way of saying she stole her body and mind for this man. She was a child in love with a bad boy and he used this to benefit himself. Which lead to their break up months later when he found another female capable of bringing in the goods, this shattered April and love to her was none-sense now?
Though through her trails and unfortunate events, she still holds onto something capable of bringing her worth, she is an artist, capable of drawing and capturing the warmth of the places environment when she brings the landscape to her canvas. This was a gift passed down from her grandmother and she embraces it firmly, drawing and making money for it, though she still does ‘dealings’, bringing in girls and teaching them the ‘ways’ of bringing their house money. She’s employed in this scandalous art herself; though she covers it up with her other business which hangs on many art display walls. She’s not particularly famous and known from this aspect, though her name does get around and she gets good cash from it.
[I hope I'm not too late in joining this role-play, it's hard to really tell if people are still accepting with me being new and all. I would've done html but I was too lazy and had other things to do afterwards. ;~; I know I'm not the best writer either, hopefully I can be bared with!]
Alright, thanks to my awesome boyfriend, I have a laptop while I wait for mine to be fixed. He lent me his.
I DID how ever, have to pull some strings for it.....
SCENE FROM RL:
Justin: Has the packing supplies for your laptop come yet?
Julez: No.... was it supposed to?
Justin: Yes.... you'll have to call them again. Don't you have homework?
Julez: I'm using my mom's computer for that...
Justin: If you want, you can borrow my laptop... it's not as good as yours, but it's good.
Julez: THANK YOU
Julez: I'm hungry.
Now that I'm back, via borrowed laptop, I'll get started on the IC.
There's the IC, also, Kitti's character, Marcus is the one that Marilyn tripped over and bothered, and stole the blanket from.
As I described, you're pretty much locked in a room with no way to get out, all you have is blankets and a cuff on your wrist, and as you'll find out, a collar of some kind, with a lock on it so you can't take it off.
The room is illuminated by a red light, so at this point every one can see each other.
