  1. Sins Made in Grace [​IMG]
    Since the time Japan occupied Korea, there has always been feuding between the respective street gangs and organized syndicates. Bad blood was not easily forgotten and to this day the Khangpae clash with the Yakuza. From juvenile delinquents to senior mafia, it is learned to loathe the opposing factor.


    the KHANGPAE 깡패

    Korean "thugs" that first rose to power in the late 19th century. From unorganized street gangs consisting mostly of jobless men and rebellious teens to mafia with members in political positions and trained assassins, they've asserted themselves as dangerous and worthy of fear.

    First formed in the 1600's (mid Edo Period) as either gamblers or fraudulent peddlers. They started as one of the lowest social groups but gained power throughout decades of perseverance. The Yakuza are very traditional and ritualistic, so much so that some outsiders even respect them.

  2. The positions are merely a guideline. Your exact role in the gang is up to you. It could be sniper, transporter, cleaner, assassin, political representative, etc. Of course I will make the decision whether or not it's acceptable.

  3. Ueda Makoto[​IMG]

    ❝出る釘は打たれる
    Standing out goes hand in hand with criticism.


    23 / Male / Homosexual

    YAKUZA ヤクザ
    Yorri Bunke ↵

    - Deputy -
    Transporter




    .Occupation : convenience store worker

    .Relationships
    Lover - single
    Sister - Ueda Izanami
    Friend - Boss
    Friend - Underboss
    Friend - Deputy
    Enemy - n/a



    .Abilities : Proficient in gun handling, no training in hand to hand combat but experienced in street fighting, and well versed in multiple languages.

    .Strengths
    - Due to his extensive travels as a transporter Makoto has picked up many languages. He is fluent in Japanese, Hangul, English, and Mandarin. He knows bits and pieces of a few other languages.
    - Has been in hundreds of fights through the years and can easily beat two or three thugs if jumped.


    .Weaknesses
    - No formal training in combat. While experienced, he would only last a few minutes against a qualified assassin.
    - Prone to sticking his foot in his mouth, Makoto gets into many unnecessary fights.


    .Favorites
    - Makoto likes rock music and will often go see garage bands play.
    - Sweet and savory foods are what he enjoys eating most.
    - Poetry. He likes reading it and tries his hand at writing it but often fails.


    .Personality
    A floater with no real ambitions, Makoto is just walking through life without questioning where he'll end up. He isn't mean spirited but he also wouldn't win any kindness awards. Some think he's a bit cold because of his somewhat uncaring countenance when truthfully he is not very good at showing his emotions. Makoto likes sarcasm and wittiness but often fails at it himself which leads to misunderstandings that turn into fist fights.

    .Bio
    With an absent father and working mother Makoto took care of his younger sister on his own. He fell into the "wrong crowd" when he was a preteen. He didn't see them as bad and instead was entranced by their absolute loyalty to each other and the closeness they shared. Makoto rose through the ranks and by the time he dropped out of school he had become a deputy. His aptitude for language and passing under the radar made him a perfect candidate for a transporter. He took to the job easily and the extra wages were especially appreciated.

    ` p e r s o n a l i t y :
    haruna is often perceived as solemn and having little to no sense of humor at all. she is, in fact, very good at cracking jokes, however dislikes doing so, as she thinks that 'no one takes a goofball seriously'. she has a very short attention span and often does not talk to someone of unimportance, only directing herself to the ones that have purpose. she isn't afraid to speak her mind or retort. haruna can be sweet if she wants to, but you'll have to lucky to experience it.
    [ `sarcastic / `independent / `straightforward / 'insensitive / 'vulgar / 'harsh ]


    ` b i o g r a p h y :
    from a young age, haruna had been taught to differentiate the good from the bad, which in her case the 'bad' were the khangpae, and the 'good' were the yakuza. haruna's parents were, let's say, over-affectionate. they protected haruna from everything that got in her way, and cushioned whatever downfalls that she had to experience during her childhood. haruna believed that she was the queen of everything, until her parents had a divorce which led to self-independence.

    . Motorcycle Mechanic

    . Abilities
    Martial Arts - trained in Taekkyeon, Hapkido, and Taekwondo.
    Arms - capable of using multiple gun types and heavy artillery.

    [​IMG]

    . Strengths
    Physically adept - in most aspects Jae is more skilled than the average human at combat.
    Self Sufficient - he can fend for himself in any given situation.

    . Weaknesses
    Booksmarts - Jae is knowledgeable but he couldn't tell you what planet has the highest density.
    Enemies - his enemies far outweigh his allies. He's poor at making friends.

    . Favorites
    silver : it's sleek, hints at danger, while being unobtrusively beautiful
    R&B - he's not particularly picky with his music but prefers R&B more than Heavy Metal
    meat - he is quite carnivorous and can be made happy with bulgogi or any type of Korean BBQ

    . Personality
    A man of steel. He is unafraid of speaking his opinion and letting others know exactly how he feels. Jae is stubborn when he is sure he is right. His temper isn't exactly explosive but he's no the type to let slander slide. He's sarcastic, emotional, and bullheaded. Most find him annoying in that he never lets anything go. Some find him amusing, while others don't really care. Jae is not prideful or arrogant yet he doesn't waste time asking forgiveness for everything he's done. He's accepted who he is and while there is regret for some of his hits, he locks those feelings away.

    . Relationships
    Former Lover : Park Woojin - deceased
    Mother : Kim Cho-hee - deceased
    Father : Kim Jongup - unknown
    Friend : tbd - alive



    . Born : 9/36/91 . Blood Type O . Busan, South Korea
    There aren't many who have known death as intimately as Jaehyung. Nicknamed "Reaper" by people who know of his story, he has been surrounded by the spirits of his loved ones. His mother passed away when he was only three and his father went MIA when he was ten. He knew very little about his parents as a result. Jae grew up in the foster system and did his fair share of living on the streets. He had always been independent, despising being coddled and loathing even more laying back and taking what others dished out. It was only a matter of time that he got caught up in some large scale illegal activities. He joined Ssang Kal when he was eighteen. He met his first love Woojin, he'd had lovers but never someone he adored, and was quickly swept away by the unfamiliar feelings. The death of Woojin - caused by an arms deal gone wrong, broke something in Jae. He didn't care about his own safety and even less for others. When carrying out orders as a soldier he paid less attention to the details, shooting before asking questions. As his kill count raised, his superiors noticed and appointed him an assassin. Now he's one of the best. Many know the name "Reaper" and fear it.

    - indie & alternative music


    .Personality
    Jung-hwa is completely devoted to his people. He's as loyal as a dog, which has earned him the nickname Hound. He is intelligent and a quick study in most subjects. Jung-hwa is a steady, unwavering presence.


    .Bio
    His home was not a welcoming place. There were no kind words, emanating warmth, or soft gestures filled with love. Instead Jung-hwa knew only the cold, creeping feeling of tainted words shouted into his innocent ears. The game of hiding bruises and splintered bones became something of a challenge for him. It was the Ssang Yong Pa who offered him protection and a place to feel safe.

    Jung-hwa went through many discoveries as he dealt with the hand he was given at birth. One of which was his demisexuality. It was confusing to him, he could tell if someone was attractive yet couldn't feel any lustful urges. Only after he fell for a boy he grew close to in school over two years, did he ever feel sexual desire. This was troubling to him as his parents said he was broken and he worked to understand that there was a spectrum, he was only just learning of it.

    • Amateur in MMA.
    • A skilled painter
    • "Professional" graffiti artist.
    • Parkour Enthusiast
    .Strengths
    Agility
    He's a quick little fucker, and can dodge easily, especially if his opponent is large and slow.
    Stamina
    Maybe it's because he uses his longs to talk so much, but the boy can go on for a long time, be it running or parkour.
    Parkour
    Because he's always vandalizing something or another, Kwang has since learned that he needs to be able to escape quickly by any means possible, and he has mastered parkour to make this possible.
    .Weaknesses
    Insubordinate
    Unless you're the boss, he'll make snide comments constantly and he won't do things to a T, he'll half ass it or put his own twist on things instead of doing what he was told. (Example: "Kwang...I told you to put our gang sign on that building, not our gang sign with a galaxy background...")
    Overconfident
    He a cocky little shit and that usually messes things up for him. He tends to think that he's smarter than he is and lets his guard down.
    ADHD
    He was diagnosed with ADHD at six years old and he has medicine but you have to hound him to take it because he doesn't like how it makes him feel.
    Physically Weak
    He does take MMA classes, but he's not really good at it. He tends to get distracted or impatient and will just start throwing punches, if things are going quickly enough. So he gets sloppy, but he also isn't good on the defense front and can't take a hard hit. (or even a sucker punch, really.)


    .Favorites
    He loves all colors.
    He listens to pop and alternative rock constantly.
    He has a thing for hamsters, especially the dwarf ones.
    He loves sour candy.


    .Personality
    Kwang is a little shit. He's vain, over confident and a smart ass all rolled into one. He can talk a mile a minute without resting and he doesn't even have the decency to connect the subjects. Seriously give this boy a topic and he'll chatter about it for ten minutes then start talking about something on a whole different spectrum. He's a cheeky guy and he has great pride in his graffiti artwork. He gets personally offended when someone messes up his vandalism or washes it off. However he's more of a behind the scenes guy, than an up in your face guy. Physical fighting isn't really his strong suit, and he'll usually hide behind someone if things get physical. He's not always an asshole though, sometimes he can be nice, but he usually pairs his compliments with an immediate insult so--Well, then I guess he is always an asshole.
    .Bio
    Ironically, Kwang was born as the first son to a homemaker and a police captain. As an infant and a toddler he was adored by both his mother and father. His older sister, Areum was skeptical of the new addition to their family at first, because before him she was the prized child who was doted on by their parents, but after his arrival, she only got half the attention which she hated. This caused a rift to form between the siblings even though one of them was barely a year old.


    However, Areum didn't have to be jealous for long. When Kwang started walking and talking, he wasn't interested in the many logic puzzles that is father bought for him and he wasn't interested in clinging to his mother's skirts either. No. Kwang was enthralled with art. He loved it and couldn't get enough of it. He drew ever second of every day and he had an immense talent at a young age, but his parents didn't see a future in art and discouraged his interest. However, the more they pushed, the more he pushed back and so a rift was formed between the boy and his parents. However the rift between he and his sister dissolved, as she didn't see him as a challenge anymore and secretly encouraged him to pursue his passion, so that he could never be seen in a favorable light again.

    At age 12, Kwang's father was trying to push Kwang in the direction of law enforcement. He wanted his son to follow in his footsteps, but Kwang didn't care for the justice system. He was already getting involved with various graffiti artsist and had been arrested more than once. His father just assumed that his son would grow out of it, but Kwang knew that he would never become a cop like his dad and he told the man as much. His father lost his temper and blew up at him, striking him in the face and immediately regretting it but the damage had been done. Kwang (and Areum who had witnessed the fight) was horrified and developed a fear of their father, thinking that man would strike them again. Whenever their dad approached them, they would flinch and cower and so their dad began spending more time at work then at home.

    Tragedy struck when Kwang and Areum's father had a fatal heart attack at work, due to constant all nighters and mounting stress. Their mother was devastated and fell into a deep depression. Areum tried to console her but their mother rejected her attempts and began to resent even having children. "If not for you, he would still be by my side." She would tell them day and night. This caused the siblings to start relying on each other more. After a year, their mother up and left without so much as a word. The siblings were taken in by their strict grandmother who used mentally and emotionally abusive tactics to try and control them.

    After three years of abuse, Areum ran away telling Kwang that she would return when she found a good home for them. She ended up being gone for two years, but when she returned she was married and willing to give her brother a home but he brother who thought she'd abandoned him, had joined Chil Sung Pa and wasn't keen on leaving. The rift between the siblings materialized again and they went their separate ways.

  17. Ah, I'm in heaven right now. This is my kind of role play. ヽ( ´ ▽`)ノ ♡

    I would like to reserve the boss for Ssang Yong Pa, and the underboss for Ssang Kal.

    I might make someone for Yorri Bunke but, I haven't decided yet.
     
  18. Yess I love him already~
    I'd rather you only played one female. I want to keep this semi-realistic and we already have two females... (I totes think women can kick mens butts but ya know...) <.<" I just came off really sexist for a feminist...
     
  19. hehe, my goal has been achieved then! (。◝‿◜。)

    They are all yours! c:

    My Makoto certainly wouldn't mind having a buddy~ (。•̀ᴗ-)✧
     
  20. May I reserve a female for Khangpae and a male for Yakuza. (Also face claim Arden Cho
    [​IMG]
    and Daniel Henney
    [​IMG]
    )

    Also, I have a question. Well, more like I just want to make sure I assumed correctly: Not everyone in each "family" is related to each other, right? I took 'family' to be metaphorical. If they're all actually related to each other then that's a big family.
