"May this day which we live in, prove to those around us how messed up this world really is... But who pays attention anyways in the Black Rain?" In 1996, Project Sanctuary was developed by the American Government in a way to decrease the number of abused children and adults worldwide. Project Sanctuary proved to be effective taking abused people from the source and placing them in safe houses but funds for Project Sanctuary begun to diminish quickly. Support Groups begun to talk about how the project was failing as there were not enough housing and needs for the victims. Thus Project Sanctuary disappeared in 2000 leaving the victims on their own, returning from which they came or transferred else where for those a little more fortunate. Kissimme, Florida was one of the many places a safe house was built under the name of Project Sanctuary. Once the project disappeared so did the supplies to the house, employees and the very knowledge about the safe house. But when the project left the house slowly became run down, some have even spotted remaining people venturing to and from the house. This group are the remaining victims of Project Sanctuary who have been through many abuse cases and were taken from their homes in hope to have a better life. What actually happened was they were put in just as bad of a situation; poor, ill, and starving.... This RolePlay is about a group of people (Ages 13-25, sometimes younger if it was a special case) who were taken from their abusive situations or traveled for safety now living the life of a poor person. They scavenge for food in the dark, lay ill in hope they will get better, or making money in the worst way possible. The old Project Sanctuary Safe House as become run down from age and have limited beds or other furniture. For the sake of insanity and survival, two people have decided to make themselves head of the struggling group to do their best and make sure they all are alive the next day.

The female is already taken and I need the male "leader". They do not have to be siblings, in a relationship ect.
