This is the OOC created for a Roleplay I've decided to call "Unrest in Peace" it takes place in London in August, 1868. It's a horror/mystery. This is the signup and plot thread, so I will write the plot below: The year is 1868; London is a busy city housing all sorts of people; the types who doesn't have to think much about their daily life and others for whom the daily life is an endless fight. The day it happened was August 4th; not many people knew about the incident, but rumors were spreading. Apparently, a woman had been found murdered. Or, they assumed it was. Her body looked as if it had been blown up from the inside, which is impossible with any weapon known to people. They only know the identity of the woman due to one of the fingers found wearing a wedding ring, with a name ingraved on it. That was all there was left; shattered pieces, and a few whole fingers, toes and her eyes as well. It was a horrid sight. The government did quick process in covering things up from the eyes of the public, but there was a person who knew about this without having to hear it in the news; he found the woman before the police, but instead of going to the police he made sure to remember every detail about the scene before running off. He knew what was going to happen when the police and the government would figure out about this; it was strange and unexplainable, thus it would be covered up almost immediately. The boy felt curious towards this. He wanted to figure out what had really happened to this woman, and who had committed the murder. He didn't exactly know how, but he knew he needed help. The interest in the particular case (along with other rumored murders using the same method) had shown to be not only his interest. On his way he finds out that he's not alone in wanting to uncover the truth about this killer's identity. Signup for my character (the boy mentioned in this summary thingy xD ) Name: Adrian Martin Appearance: dark grey/black hair and red eyes Age: 19 Background: Adrian was originally born in the arms of a rich family, but his parents had fairly many enemies. When he was 6, one of these 'enemies' killed Adrian's parents and burnt his house down. Adrian himself was caught in the fire and hid inside his room until the fire reached him. He ended up getting burnt and passed out, thinking he was going to die. Oddly, for some reason, he did not, and found himself in a place unknown to him a few days later. He was told to have passed out and slept for two days. Being caught in the fire had earned him a large burn mark on his back, reaching from his upper shoulder almost all the way down to his hipbone. After around a month spent in a bed trying to recover, he was finally okay again. He got a job in town and lived with the family who had saved his life. The family only consisted of two elderly people and their grand daughter whose parents had also passed away. They took him in as their own. For a while, he seemed to have a calm life. That was, until the elderly people died, and he and the girl had to take care of everything on their own when they were just kids. Eventually, he had to move away again. When he was 14, he reached London. Ever since he has been trying to maintain a somewhat normal life, trying to get along in the everyday. That was, until he began stumbling over dead bodies. At his first encounter with a dead body, he accidentally tripped and his finger all but stroked the hand of the deceased. He started hallucinating, seeing a person stand over him and then slam him in the head with a hammer, before he passed out and woke up again hours later, lying in the same alley. The body was still there and instead of staying he got up and ran straight back home. He pondered over this for days and eventually set with that he was going insane, until it happened again. And again. He had to finally admit to himself that he was able to see the last moments of a deceased person by getting in physical contact with them. But due to the woman having been shattered into pieces he didn't want to step into all the blood to get in contact with her, and he had also heard the police coming and decided to take a run for it. After that was when his interest in these murders had arisen.
