    • Not everyone has a fair chance at life, the underprivileged, those born into poverty and those who are simply born into an abusive household. The rich and famous feign care for such issues but none of them want anything but publicity. One family though, in composed almost entirely of the underprivileged. A wealthy couple living in North Dakota has done all they can to take in several of the lower class. They educate them, enroll them in schools and give them something they never had -- a full functioning family. People in their social circle wonder why the couple adopts and fosters children instead of having their own, but it’s a little known fact that the two have been incapable of having their own children since Mrs. Forbes nearly died giving birth to their daughter. So, out of their own love of large families they give a loving home to those who don’t already have one.

    • Rulings

      Above all else, I expect active participation. Be it within plotting in the OOC, or messaging me with questions or ideas. Time time and effort, to put into the role play because it requires everyone's full co-operation and participation.

      At least one post a week, but if you may manage more it would be lovely for our survival. Each post should have at the very least, two well written paragraphs for each character involved.

      There is no maximum on the amount of characters that you may have, though I must ask you do not overburden yourself with too many. The recommended amount should be between three or four at most, but if you can handle it, all the power to you.

      I am absolute. I should mention I am a rather strict Game Master at times, especially with character creation. I do willingly listen to ideas and opinions, but I will ultimately make decisions based upon the basis and plans for the role play, as well as the character of the Player displayed to me.

      Above I stated that there is no character limit, but each one should be unique, a three dimensional person, capable of development. Think about how they would react to situations and people without bias.

    N(Bossy/Emotional/Bratty)
    Scarlet seems like the girl that wants everything for herself and she doesn't like to share, some of that is true, but she is actually a very kind and loving girl. She loves to make new friends and hang with the others adopted kids, calling them her siblings, even if they aren't related by blood. Scarlet has a tendency to get very emotional rather quickly when it comes to people being mean towards her. She never knew her real parents... so there is a lot of abandonment issues she needs to learn to deal with. Scarlet can be a big brat if she doesn't get her way, she was a natural at being a spoiled Princess when she was adopted by the Forbes. She loves to take care of the younger kids, always there for them when they need something or someone. She is a kind girl with a bratty side... but what girl doesn't have that.


    Biography
    Scarlet was born to a single mother who worked as a waitress in North Dakota, her mother had a one night stand with some man. When Scarlet's mother found out that she was pregnant, she knew that couldn't take care of a child, she could barely take care of herself. Living in North Dakota for all of her life, Scarlet's mother had heard about a wealthy couple that adopted kids who didn't or wouldn't have an opportunity for a better life. Scarlet's mother met with the couple when Scarlet was just six months old. They were warm and welcoming to the woman and her child, she told them why she couldn't keep Scarlet. They gladly said they would adopt her, and Scarlet's mother only had one request, that they name her Scarlet. She never told them why she wanted Scarlet's name to be Scarlet, she just asked them to. Scarlet has been with the Forbes ever since, probably being one of the only kids to be there since she was younger than a year old. The Forbes even gave her their last name, she was their daughter now. No one knows what happened to her birth mother and no one knows who her birth father is... so they are a breeze in the wind.

    Involuntary Manslaughter
    His grandmother promised to buy him a new skateboard if he got good grades on his report card, which he did, but when he asked her for it, she told him that she couldn't afford the skateboard at that time. He threw a tantrum, complete with screaming, stomping his feet and shoving things. One object that he accidentally shoved was a bookshelf that fell onto his grandmother. Surprisingly the bookshelf falling on her didn't kill her, it was Felix panicking and taking too long to call 911 that did it and she died of head trauma. He was charged as a minor and was going to be sent to a juvenile institution but the Forbes stepped in and negotiated the punishment to two years of community service. He's since finished his community service but still works as a volunteer at the place that he was assigned; Meadowlark Retirement Home, where he entertains the residents and helps the custodians clean.

    Personality
    Felix is a reserved boy on most days, but sometimes if you catch him off guard, he'll talk your ear off if you let him. He has a serious anger management issue, where he screams verbal abuse and physical assaults his surroundings, but he's working on that aspect and very rarely loses control now. He can be a charming kid, dropping compliments constantly and worming his way into the hearts of strangers (usually old ladies and middle aged divorcees). Sometimes he uses his charm for good, but other times he uses it to get what he wants but his desires never go to the extremes. Although sometimes when the other boys at school pick on him for being so quiet and hanging him out with girls all the time, he tries to be like them and acts like a jerk, but always apologizes afterwards.

    Biography
    Felix's parents died in a car accident when he was just two years old and Felix's maternal grandmother was the only living relative so she took custody of Felix. Vera Ivanov had never had an active role in Felix's life, as she had not been on speaking terms with his mother because she believed her daughter should have married someone else, however Vera did not take any of this out on Felix, instead she chose to spoil him. She gave him everything he asked for and things he didn't. Vera lived a pretty comfortable life as she was living on her late husbands life insurance money and her social security checks, so she could afford to spoil Felix for a few years. However eventually the money ran dry and when Felix was 10 years old, Vera was considering bankruptcy. She never told Felix about her money troubles, so when she stopped giving him things and started telling him that she couldn't afford the things she had promised, he assumed she was being greedy and started throwing fits. At first the tantrums were small and he would just yell things, but as he got older he started attacking the objects in his environment. One such object was a large bookshelf that fell on his grandmother. As she went down, Vera hit her head hard on the marble floor and suffered a concussion and unbeknownst to them both, internal bleeding. Felix who had lived such a sheltered and cushy lifestyle, panicked in the middle of a crisis and instead of calling 911, he panicked. Thankfully, the neighbors had heard the commotion and called, but by the time the police got there, Vera was dead.

    Felix was taken into police custody and two weeks later had to stand trial. He was going to be sent to a juvenile institution, but the Forbes family stepped in and negotiated the charges to two years of community service at a retirement home. At first Felix balked at the idea that he would have to work for old people for two years, and threw many tantrums. He hated being around elderly people and he often complained about them being slow and boring and technology challenged. He was insubordinate and rude to his boss and he cut corners in his work. One day however, a new resident came to the home. She was an sweet old lady named, Veronica Woods and she had only come to the retirement home because the people who she had lived with prior, had died in an unfortunate accident. Ms. Woods rejected the kindness of all the volunteers and constantly yelled at the nurses when they tried to keep her company and opted to stay holed up in her room instead of interacting with others. In all honesty, she was a pain to deal with and that's why Felix was assigned to her room.

    Felix and Ms. Woods were cut from the same cloth and matched each other in blatant rudeness and foul mouths. But surprisingly, they got each other and after a few months of dreading each others company, they started to look forward to seeing each other. After one morning of chatting about mundane things, Ms. Woods finally told Felix why she was at the home. She told him that the people she had lived with were her children and her grandson. They loved her so they never coddled her or made her feel like a child by banning her from using certain objects because her old age and they never commented on the fact that she often forgot important things instead they just changed to accommodate her mistakes. But one night she made a mistake they couldn't fix. She had forgotten how, but she'd started a fire and her loving daughter and son in law demanded that the fire department save their son and elderly mother first. Her children died, her grandson had to be taken to the hospital for smoke in his lungs and she was...Fine.
    Somehow at the end of that story, something in Felix broke and after a year of dry eyes, he burst into tears for his own family, especially his grandmother. After that he stopped rejecting the Forbes efforts to treat him like their son. He stopped treating everybody like shit and he started taking his community service job seriously.

    Scarlet
    "I used to hate her, but she's cool sometimes."
    > Felix used to butt heads with Scarlet, as he saw her as an obstacle to getting what he wanted, but after he changed, he got past his negative feelings towards her and realized she could be pretty cool even if she could also be irritatingly bossy. Sometimes he gives her musical accompaniment to her singing/dancing. <

    Ashley
    "She's my museum partner."
    > They don't have much in common save for their love of museums and they've made it their mission to visit a different museum every weekend. <

    Dante
    "...She's really cute."
    > Felix has a huge crush on Dante, that he tries to hide. He actually wrote her a theme song, but has yet to share it for fear of looking like an idiot. <

    Max
    "I don't really hang out with him. He's creepy."
    > Maybe because the other boy reminds him of his former self, Felix avoids hanging out with Max, but doesn't openly ignore, he just finds reasons to not hang out with him. <

    Personality
    Ashley is a very passive and pensive girl who likes to wander through life as opposed to rushing. She takes things slow not because she needs it that way but because she loves to take in her surroundings. She can stare at a tree for hours never getting bored because her mind is constant filling with questions. However this type of disposition and mentally often gets her into unpleasant and dangerous situations. She likes to daydream and sometimes she'll zone out in class or stop to marvel at something when she's crossing the street. When reprimanded for putting herself in danger or not paying attention in class, Ashley will become despondent and stubborn and will resent you for yelling or snapping at her. Angelica though rarely in a foul mood, gets upset when people try to baby her or are overprotective of her just because she's deaf.

    Biography
    Ashley doesn't remember anything before the streets. As far as she knows, she was always homeless, but she supposed that she lived in a house at some point, because she remembers her mom always telling her that one day things were going to be good again. So she supposed she was talking about that. Honestly, maybe it was because she was so young, but Ashley never really cared about where she lived as long as she was with her mom and brothers. She was never hungry and sure sometimes people were mean to them, but her mom and brothers always kept her entertained and it was rare for her to not have a smile on her face even when they had to move from place to place.

    However one day it seemed like luck was finally shining on them, because they found a pretty field to stay in and they pitched tents and even had take out once. Her mom who was usually frowning, looked relaxed and would tell Ashley and her brothers fairy tales. But one day, their mother left to get supplies and never came back. Then Ashley's brothers left to find her and they never came back, but Ashley always believed that one day they would.

    For a few weeks, Ashley lived on her own in the field eating the left over rations. But when the food ran out, Ashley was forced to venture out of her sanctuary, and that's when everything went wrong. It turns out that that field was actually the land that belonged to an elderly couple and when they found out about Ashley living there, they called the police and Ashley was taken into police custody, but soon turned over to the state and put in an orphanage. However nobody wanted to adopt Ashley because as it turns out, she was deaf and not many people were willing to take on the task of accommodating her.

    Nobody except for the Forbes, that is. The Forbes welcomed Ashley with open arms and even though Ashley still believed her mother and brothers would come back, she accepted the Forbes as her temporary family. With the Forbes, Ashley better developed her sign language and was even allowed to get a pet. It was with the Forbes that she learned how to garden and was encouraged to explore surroundings.

    (What really happened to Ashley's family: Her mother was kicked out of her apartment because a neighbor found out she was shooting up. CPS came to take the kids away, but she ran away with them. The entire time that they were homeless, she was struggling with a drug addiction and regretting not letting her kids be taken by CPS. However she couldn't go back because she would be arrested for child endangerment as well as for the drugs. She knew that the field was the elderly couples property and left them there in hopes of them being adopted. She herself went looking for a fix and died of an overdose a few months later. Ashley's brothers, Nick and Sam went looking for her and were taken into police custody. They were adopted soon after by a couple across the country.)

    > They don't have much in common save for their love of museums and they've made it their mission to visit a different museum every weekend. <

    Dante
    "She's awesome and I wish I could be like her."
    > Ashley sees Dante like some sort of rock star, she used to try and emulate her but stopped after getting into too much trouble and hating it. She still likes to imagine that she was like Dante though.<

    Max
    *Giggles* "He's cute."
    > Ashley has a huge crush on Max, so she doesn't really see past his looks and sometimes spies on him. <

    Personality: She tends to get easily angry when her feelings are trampled on. She is relatively smart even though she is missing some required education in her transcript. She is nice if you let her get the chance, but that's difficult to do. She hates stuck up snobs who think they are better than everyone else. She secretly likes old literature. She is always the one to blame when a fight is picked, yet she doesn't tell the truth to tell anyone it wasn't her. When she does pick a fight she announces it. She loves animals. She tends to where male clothes as she isn't like the other girls.


    Biography: She got the name Dante because the doctors thought she was a boy, so the had the papers pre-registered. Her father was upset when he found out that she wasn't a boy, so he refused to pay the bill. She lived in an orphanage Britain till she was six, she was getting foster parents, who lived in the US, the foster parents disowned her when she kept running away. Each time she had been fostered from that point on she ran away. She developed a half British and half American accent. When she was nine she nearly killed a boy her age for trying to talk (shit) to her. She would keep stealing art supplies, that never happened to be found. She usually got into fights but never seemed to get injured. Most of the time she would pick a fight because of what the other person had said to her. She occasionally came back to the orphanage with a scar or two on her arm, but nobody would find out that's why she never seemed to get hurt.

    Family Relationships:
    Scarlet
    "The ultimate fashion queen"
    I mean we don't really share the same interests, but she has tried a lot to get close to me. Then there's whenever we go out, she always tries to get me to look pretty. Which tends to end up with me locking myself in the bathroom for several hours.


    Max
    "A creep of a brother who gets caught staring at me"
    He looks at me, a lot. It's not scary it's more creepy than anything. It's almost as if he is giving me a death glare or checking me out. Probably the death glare, even so if it is the ladder, I already like someone.


    Felix
    "He's cool"
    Out of the boys he's probably the one I'd hang out with first.


    Ashley
    "She's so adorable"
    She's cute except her iguana creeps me out a little, one morning I found it laying in my bed.


    Jason
    "A insane freak of nature"
    Not a total freak just the whole violence thing isn't great in my mind, I mean sure I get into fights, but I don't try to make it a war.


    Jack
    "The next Chris Angel,....Not"
    I mean he tries to do magic but I just see through all his tricks, but I still applaud him for tricking the others.

    Biography: There really isn't much to Jack's past. His mother left because his father was a drunk, no surprise to Jack of course. He acted out every chance he could. Jack's father wasn't to violate at first. Little fire here, something broken there, no harm no foul. One time Jack's father hurt Jack's sister really bad. He didn't mean to, but the own man was stronger than he thought. After that Jack set fire to a warehouse on the other side oh the train tracks that was just behind his house. That was the first time Jack got in trouble with the police. Jack's father let him stay in the holding cell for three days, he probably didn't want anyone to see his sister's broken arm. Jack was ten years old when this incident happened. A few months later Jack's father passed out on the couch after a long night of drinking. Jack's sister suggested that they rid themselves of the old man for good. This seemed like a good idea to Jack at first. Jack took his father's liter, that he had laying around, and set fire to the chair he was sleeping on., but the plan would quickly go south. He woke up, and ran out the house. While running, his father knocking over papers. This made the fire go all over the place. But the worst part is that his sister got badly burnt. After the incident, Jack ended up in a juvenile care facility for six years. After the six years was up Jack was given a choice. He could go to a adult correctional facility, or go with this family that wanted to adopt him. Of course Jack picked the family choice.
    Extra: Loves cats.
