An Outlast roleplay with Sansa Stark and Munchkin. the world outside remains barred off, secluded from the horrors within. For years, the MURKOFF Psychiatric System has taken root in this once-abandoned house of insanity and warped into a beast all its own, deeper, darker. Mixing science with the satanic and utilizing pure psychosis would be considered taboo for some, impossible for others, but for the employees high in the chains of MURKOFF it is only the beginning. Phase one. The secrets contained within the files and minds and patients of this unholy facility could bring all their hard work crumbling down. MURKOFF will stop at nothing to see their research preserved, whatever the cost. However, things have changed. The families of employees report their missing family members and cryptic emails have reached the account of Detective Inspector Alistair Scott, who had been following MURKOFF's trail for decades. Assembling a team of six highly-skilled people to assist in his search for the truth, he approaches St. Michael's asylum with a heavy heart, the knowledge of malpractice on his mind, and no fucking clue of the terror he will discover. "See Fear" was written in blood on the walls. It seemed that fear itself would visit them that night, until the dawn came and insanity would be unleashed once more. PLAYED BY SANSA STARK: SOPHIE KASTELLIC SOPHIE KASTELLIC AGE: Twenty-one HEIGHT: 5'5'' WEIGHT: 127lbs OCCUPATION: Investigative Journalist PERSONALITY: Fiery and passionate, Sophie is determined to catch the story whenever it arises and resilient in her drive for truth. She is typically hard at work, never stopping until the desired end result is achieved. This makes her persistent to the point of a fault, which is considered a bad thing as she is still young and new in the field, but she has no restraints. Outside the job, she is bubbly and filled with joy, claiming many friends as close to her heart. She is friendly and compassionate. BACKSTORY: Sophie grew up in a relatively normal life in the United Kingdom, specifically the London suburbs, until the year she turned fifteen. Her best friend went missing and was recovered two weeks later, hacked into bloody pieces and left on Sophie's front door. The police determined that her dear friend was raped and mutilated before being butchered, but the suspect in custody escaped justice during a trial that stunk of manipulation and false testimony. She decided then that the only way to bring peace to her friend and many others who had been wronged by the incapabilities of the police was to conduct her own investigations and make her discoveries known to the public. She graduated a year early from Oxford with a degree in Journalism and high recommendations from her peers. Shortly thereafter, she began following the impressive trail of Detective Inspector Alistair Scott, wondering if he might be the man she was looking for to help solve her friend's case. Seeing he was working on something new, however, she decided to investigate, which leads her to the front doors of St. Michael's Asylum in Boston. CURRENT COLOR: Sea green JULIA BRADFORD DOCTOR JULIA BRADFORD AGE: Thirty-three HEIGHT: 5'7'' WEIGHT: 145lbs OCCUPATION: Neuroscientist PERSONALITY: Julia is a cold and stoic woman, preaching facts over everything else and never backing down from stating her opinion. She is intense in her studies and field of work, and prefers to be the leader of the group whenever such projects are applicable. She is relentless and ruthless though there is a hint of compassion in her as well, though one must earn such privileges with her. BACKSTORY: Julia was an only child and was raised by a rich family in upstate New York, graduating from Stanford with a full degree in neuroscience at the age of nineteen. After accomplishing her PhD, Julia continued to find work at various institutions studying mental health and how it effects the brain, something she herself is passionate about. After great success in launching a new medication for schizophrenia and better treatment for those with multiple personalities, she was called upon by Detective Inspector Scott to work with him on his new case. She was eager to accept. CURRENT COLOR: Gray FREDERICK ROOSE FREDERICK ROOSE AGE: Thirty-nine HEIGHT: 6'3" WEIGHT: 240 lbs OCCUPATION: Film director PERSONALITY: Fred is a calm and quiet man, not enjoying conflict in the slightest though he is fiercely protective of those he cares about. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is sought out during times where one needs advice from a friend. He has a very creative mind and a pleasant aura to be around. Most of his friends can say they feel calmed in his presence. Fred is friendly and likes to give his opinion should he feel it helps the situation. BACKSTORY: After getting a degree from Berkeley in directing, Frederick fulfilled his dream and directed a few indie films that never made it to the big screen--the low-key atmosphere was typically what he enjoyed most. The films he worked on received plenty of awards and he enjoyed the process of making them, but he still felt like he was lacking something in his career. He decided to go further into the documentary world. When Alistair Scott gave him a phone call about a new and potentially groundbreaking project, he was absolutely on board. CURRENT COLOR: Light sky blue PLAYED BY MUNCHKIN: ALISTAIR SCOTT DETECTIVE INSPECTOR ALISTAIR SCOTT AGE: Forty-three HEIGHT: 6'5'' WEIGHT: 250lbs OCCUPATION: Detective Inspector PERSONALITY: Alistair has been toughened up by his 15 or so years on the police force. He's seen a lot of things that will change a man, but he hasn't quite let them get to him. He believes what doesn't kill him makes him stronger. He never flinches when he has to pull the trigger. He has had to kill men, and women alike. While he changes with each case, he believes he changes for the better. Each case leaves him a better detective. He attempts to approach each case with a blank, open mind. Creativity, and thinking outside the box have been the difference between solving a case and letting it grow cold. While he's a tough man, brave, and bold, he has a soft side. He cares for the innocent and the abused. He has a particular soft spot for women. It hurts him every time he sees a woman being exposed to violence or abuse of any kind. Part of that stems from his undying love for his mother. While he has all these sensitivities, they don't show much. He is a very logical man. BACKSTORY: Born and raised in Scotland, Alistair received an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice, went on to the Police Academy, and eventually climbed the latter up to Detective Inspector. He grew up in a broken home, and was raised by his mother, who was a prominent figure in his life until she died just as he entered the police force at age 25. She died of cancer. He didn't take it too hard. It was a sickness she had been battling for years. Her mother left him on good terms. And even as a roughened 42 year old hunk of muscle, the thought of his mother telling him how proud she was of him warms his heart. CURRENT COLOR: Olive JAMES BRAY DOCTOR JAMES BRAY AGE: Seventy-five HEIGHT: 5'10'' WEIGHT: 190lbs OCCUPATION: Psychiatrist PERSONALITY: Dr Bray's years of study have somewhat dulled him of the kind of compassion a doctor new to the field would feel. He's had many patients, and while many have had recovery he has had his fair share of losing patients. He is still a caring man, but emotions and attachments won't get in the way of his work. While he genuinely cares for his patients, suicide and insanity is something he deals with every day. BACKSTORY: Dr. Bray has been working in the field of psychology and psychiatry for about 40 years now. He went to med school and got his doctorate at the young age of 21. Ever since he has been known as a genius in his field. The police department regularly calls him in about cases involving psychotic killers or traumatized witnesses. He has helped Alistair through many cereal killer cases. They are true friends, and have both seen many terrible things together. Dr Bray was more than willing to help Alistair on this case. Being a doctor in the field, he feels a certain connection with the asylum. Having heard rumors and dark myths, he craves to know the truth, and his knowledge of the human mind can help reveal that truth. CURRENT COLOR: Red Violet SUE LYNN SUE LYNN AGE: Twenty-two HEIGHT: 4'10" WEIGHT: 110 lbs OCCUPATION: Student/Photographer PERSONALITY: Sue is quiet and reserved, especially when she is working behind the camera. She has a talent for a steady hand and she gets into the action. She enjoys her job, and is very loyal to her job, contract, and whoever her client is. BACKSTORY: Sue grew up in an Asian-American home, and has always had high standards set for her. She recently finished school at an art and design university, getting a degree in photography. She also studied journalism. She has taken odd jobs here and there and through that she met Alistair and they became acquainted. He asked her to accompany him and the team on their way to the asylum. She was hesitant, but learning that this case could turn out to be something huge, she decided to say yes. CURRENT COLOR: Peach EVELYN WINTER EVELYN WINTER AGE: Twenty-four HEIGHT: 5'5'' WEIGHT: 122lbs OCCUPATION: Patient PERSONALITY: Quiet, reserved, afraid, and reluctantly obedient to superiors. She does what she'd told, and she's learned to do what the doctors and scientists tell her. BACKSTORY: Due to (most likely) a traumatic past which she can't remember, Evelyn has been experiencing episodes of hysteria and occasionally hallucinations. She's been in and out of institutions from the age of ten. She has had periods of great improvement within institutions but once released, she finds it hard to adjust to regular life. She was admitted into MMA only about a year ago when her caregivers decided to send her somewhere more permanent. She frequently witnessed and experienced abuse within hospitals but was never quite able to bring herself to talk about it. While she isn't completely insane, it takes her time to formulate her words, and most people didn't stick around to listen. As for MMA, the abuse for the patients was immensely worse than what she ever witnessed or experienced before. She was one of the few women admitted into this asylum, and was placed under the dream therapy. There were times when she was conscious and asleep at the same time, and completely aware of the sexual abuse she was experiencing. She didn't bother complaining, since everyone seemed to be a part of it. Anything from suspicious caresses to full penetration, everyone viewed the patients as objects for scientific discovery and physical pleasure. She lived for the moments at the end of the day when she was able to just sleep. CURRENT COLOR: Teal A full map of the asylum's ground floor can be found here. ABOUT ST.
