    The world has been mostly unchanged, cars have died out and planes never existed. Cities are little more then glorified train stations or farming communities and that the majority of people just live and work on trains themselves. Tracks span the world over, plunging under oceans through massive tunnels, over long bridges etc.

    The majority of the story will be split between travelogue where the trains would stop in different cities and would allow for slice of life moments and will consist of a group of people living on one of the largest train cities out there: Train Setagaya, one of the 23 trains created by Tokyo Train Manufacturing Corporation. The city trains are gigantic taking up multiple tracks (three for an average sized city-train and up to five for the largest city-trains including the Setagaya.)

    [​IMG]

    In recent news there have been reports of terrorists bombing tracks of trains and trying to destroy different train cities but have oddly been leaving the station towns alone. They use outdated vehicles (preferring motorcycles) to carry out their missions. The World Manufacturing Company (Which are now the acting Government from their secret city hidden somewhere that only Justice Runner Tracks can go.) have dispatched their own military police called the Justice Runners. The Justice Runners specialized trains that use magnets that allow their trains from track to track. They also have their own special tracks that only their trains can access and fit on. They are usually silent and are only dispatched for problems that would affect the government however the city trains typically have their own security personnel.

  3. Character Name:
    Benjamin Wheeler

    Gender:
    Male

    Species/Race:
    Cyborg

    Age:
    28

    Birthplace/World:
    Ben can't remember where he was actually born, but he was raised on Setagaya.

    Occupation:
    Mechanic/Engineer

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance:
    Ben stands at an even six foot and his skin is a creamy white. He dresses in solid colours normally, usually either denim or black pants with a plain t-shirt. One arm is mechanical, as are both of his legs and one of his eyed. He's often seen wearing a belt of tools so he has them handy for sudden repairs. His boots are tall and black, his hair is a sandy brown.

    Strengths:
    Physique can compare to a regular, healthy, muscular man, so he's capable of lifting heavy objects. He's also highly intelligent, all of which was programmed into his mind rather than taught. What he did learn on his own pace though, was the functions of the train he lives on, as well as other things. If you need something fixed or have supplies to make something, he's the guy to go to. He can take any piece of scrap to make it useful.

    Weaknesses:
    Benjamin is slow because of his metal body parts and his bulk. He's also not perfect, like his 'parents' meant him to be. Should something in his system dysfunction, he can't fix that himself. Instead of food, he uses a pill of some sort to sustain his energy. Without those, he could literally shut down once it wears off.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose:
    Simply to do his job

    Talents:
    Building, fixing, body building, math and sciences, solving problems, close combat

    Inabilities:
    Running fast, poetry, consuming food and drink, being romantic

    Fears:
    Although he seems fearless, he is afraid of anything white and fluffy. Nobody's quite sure why. Some think it dates back to his childhood when he was 'normal', others think there was just a flaw in his programming.

    General Personality:
    Appears as a stoic man with few words, but the truth is, he's too bashful to begin a conversation with anyone. He's a very friendly person to talk to if someone's bold enough to approach him. People assume he has a bad temper, yet he actually has a good grasp on his anger. The cyborg rarely smiles since he was trained to show few emotions; his 'parents' meant for him to be more robot than human. Being the independent person he is, he has few actual friends. Those who are though, get the pleasure of sharing laughs with him.

    Inner Personality:
    There isn't much to say about his inner personality. Benjamin's a quiet, sheepish person inside and out. Like many people though, there is more to him than meets they eye. There's more emotion beneath his tough exterior, he just doesn't allow it to show. He's not confident in ever finding that one special person he can comfortably share his feelings with, so they're pretty much locked away. There's also a mess of confusion in his head. He's a young man full of knowledge, yet he can't remember anything before his teen years.

    Secret:
    Despite all the women who flirt with him and talk with him, Benjamin is homosexual.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History:
    Benjamin was an orphan in an American country, adopted by some Japanese scientists looking for a test subject. Little Ben was only age two when they adopted him, however they didn't do any drastic testing until he was of a later age. No one had the heart to run tests on a child, so they allowed him to live a normal, happy life until he was eleven. They felt it was the right thing to do, even though he wasn't going to remember any of it.

    While being raised on Setagaya, he was often times dropped off to laboratories and other trains for certain matters. These scientists had a goal to improve the human race by combining them with machinery. Benjamin is a symbol of their success, however he is but a mere experiment. Once they were through with him, they had him employed on Setagaya to be a mechanical engineer and repairman. They also installed the ability for him to communicate with the train with the use of a plug that goes from the train into an outlet on the back of his neck.

    Present Life:
    Ben's going about his own business whenever he's not needed for work. The train is his home as much as it's anyone else's. He's antisocial, unless somebody talks to him first. On his free time, he can be seen tutoring students or sharing a conversation with a woman. Kids seem to love having a cyborg for a mentor and women feel the need to sympathize him.
     
  4. GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

    Character Name: Reiko Suzuki

    Gender: Female

    Species/Race: Human/Japanese

    Age: 19

    Birthplace/World: Reiko was originally born on the Chuo Train, which was part of the Tokyo Train System but moved to Setagaya when she was little.

    Occupation: Reiko works odd tasks around the city train, a good chunk of the time she likes to help out the security group and can sometimes be found at various cafes or diners. Her most common job, however, is running notes, mail and packages to various places.


    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance: Reiko stands just at the five foot mark. She dresses rather conservatively in pants and button-up blouses with her trademark jacket around her shoulders. When she does dress up she likes to wear skirts and short sleeved shirts.

    Strengths: Reiko is well versed in various firearms and lightly trained in martial arts. She has a very basic understanding of how the train works, so if something goes wrong she can usually tell what general area is broken. She has a knack for getting into tight or small places due to her size.

    Weaknesses: Being of small stature her martial arts are fairly useless on anyone too much bigger than her, so she tends to rely on her guns a lot more. Being so short she's also mistaken for a child and gets ignored when she needs something at times, which she tries to make up for with her loud personality.


    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: She is concerned about the terrorists so her main concerns are keeping the Setagaya safe.

    Talents: In addition to her strengths she is also a skilled karaoke singer, frequently being found in the entertainment car when she isn't doing an odd task. She's also quite good at pickpocketing thanks to her small size, but those days are behind her....she promises!

    Inabilities: For her small stature she isn't very useful in keeping watch over crowds of people, reaching high shelves and various other things. She's also rather light which means she's easily picked up and thrown about or tossed to the side.

    Fears: Reiko is terrified of thunder and lightning, she knows that being struck by lightning is a rare occurrence but it still scares her whenever she's outside in a thunderstorm. Reiko is also mildly clausterphobic, not so much as to completely shut down but she will freak out in cramped spaces.

    General Personality: Reiko tends to come off as stern and serious when in a business setting. If she's working she's focused on that, and will be pleasant but tends to be straight to the point and doesn't waste time doing what needs to be done. However when someone meets her outside of her various odd jobs she's perky and boisterous, she feels that she needs to be loud in order to be heard. She's not afraid of being pushy and in-your-face when she needs to be.

    Inner Personality: Inquisitive is the name of the game. She's curious about everything! That's why she does a little bit of everything, making sure to keep her options open, however it's hard to peg where she'll be at any given time because she could be following anything her interest is at the moment.

    Secret: She is afraid that she'll never find her calling and will be forced to wander about the world, eventually changing trains constantly and never finding a reason to stay.


    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: When Reiko was little her parents raised her on the Chuo Train and spent the first couple years of her life there. The Chuo Train was commonly visited by people looking for the height of Tokyo Train Line shopping. Her parents and her spent about a year of her life in a little station town near the Kyoto-Tokyo Train Lines juncture where she played outside mostly. It wasn't long before she was on the Setagaya with her parents (who eventually moved on to the Manhattan Train which is part of the New York Train Line when she turned 16, saying she could handle herself.) She's lived on the Setagaya ever since.

    Present Life: Reiko enjoys running odd jobs around the city-train, making friends with all sorts of people but never settling down into a regular job. She knows a wide group of people in the city and tries to frequent certain establishments. She at any time can be found running from place to place, car to car either carrying a parcel or heading to her next job or even heading to her favorite karaoke bar!
     
  5. Mwahaha! Reserved for villian! Zy, if there's anything you're concerned over, I will be willing to change it.


    GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

    Character Name: "Z" Seno
    Gender: Female
    Species/Race: Human
    Age: 26
    Birthplace/World: Unknown
    Occupation/School/Grade: Drifter
    More: Ryuu is her partner.

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance: Z stands at average height, about five feet five, five feet six. She appears taller because she often wears heels and has actually mastered the ability to run, kick, and a variety of other things while wearing them. She has shoulder-length black hair with long bangs that frame eithe rside of her face and dark blue eyes. She has a curvy, slender body and skin slightly tanned.
    Strengths: Keen eye; excellent hand-to-eye coordination; excellent reflexes
    Weaknesses: Physically weak; novice hand-to-hand combatant; allergic to certain shellfish

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: To save up enough cash to live like a queen for the rest of her life! To become the owner of the world's largest gun collection!
    Talents: Thinking plans through; acting
    Inabilities: Returning Ryuu's gun
    Fears: She has an irrational fear of gelatin and porcelain dolls.
    General Personality: Z is a woman who works as hard as she plays. She has a mental checklist she goes through before every job and ensures their equipment is in great condition. She dislikes leaving things to chance and other people and it took her awhile to trust Ryuu to watch her back. Z is often able to keep business and pleasure separate which includes being professional about something or blowing up about it. Outside of work, she's a passionate individual who enjoys teasing Ryuu.
    Inner Personality: Z is insecure about herself, her future, her skills so she's always striving to be better. She isn't drowning in the past but she does think of it from time to time. She remembers how lonely her mother was before she died and she doesn't want to die alone. It's a very disturbing thought.
    Secret: She's a terrorist.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Z's real name is Yuzuki Seno. She was born and raised in a normal family until her father, a conductor, was caught in a freak accident that cost him his life, the lives of his passengers and his train. She was twelve. Her mother never recovered from the stress and died of a broken heart a few months later.

    With no family to take her in, Z began to pick pockets and it escalated from there. She moved from place to place, stealing things to eat but also becoming an adrenaline junkie, who did it for the thrills. She's done everything from robbing banks to jewelry stores but she realized she wasn't making as much as she was hoping for. Her quest for the big score appeared over when she met Ryuu whom she believes she met by accident.

    Present Life: Z is still getting used to working with someone, enjoying the perks of having someone watch your back and fixing up your ride. She has a few suspicions about him but nothing out of the ordinary. Has he worked with others before? Where are they now? Will this "business partnership" remain just business and if so, for how long?

    Special Historic Notes:
    Born - Self explanatory
    12 years old - Dad dies in accident; mother dies shortly after
    26 years old - Meets Ryuu
     


  6. GENERAL CHARACTER STATISTICS

    Character Name: Ryuko
    Gender: Male
    Species/Race: Human
    Age: 27
    Birthplace/World:Setagaya

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    General Appearance: A little under 6 feet tall he almost always dressed ready for action. His body is covered with small scars the most notable of which is covered by his eyepatch.

    Strengths: Quick, nimble and hes learned through experience how to take a punch. He has experience with firearms but hes happier to let Z do the shooting. Where he excels is with his love of and use of explosives. From suitcase bombs left next to their target to the smaller thrown ones he prefers.

    Weaknesses: Only having one working eye means his depth perception suffers meaning he usually has to guess distances or fall back on Z.

    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Current Goal/Purpose: End the World Manufacturing Company.

    Talents: Quick thinking, expert at maintaining and modifying the outdated forms of transport.

    Inabilities: Not the best at thinking plans through (thats meant to be Z's job) Can't hand;e awkward moments.

    Fears: Heights (messed with by his depth perception as he sometimes mistakes how high he is) Spiders, Z on a bad day

    General Personality: He can be snarky at time but it goes with a smile and a jibe and if he knows you fell enough a playful
    punch of the shoulder. Hes in many ways the kid he was years ago, though coming of age has brought with it a focus and will to do what it takes to achieve the goals set by his... organization.

    Inner Personality: Ryuu is not as solely dedicated to his organization's goals as he fist appears. Though the though of disobeying an order has never crossed his mind preventing Z from being hurt is him main goal when they're on a mission. He brought her into his life and while he doesn't doubt her talents if anything happened to her he's feel solely responsible.

    Secret: His meeting with Z was not an accident, and you know, the being a terrorist thing.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND

    General History: Hes always been the rebel archetype, with little respect for the "government" or the enforcing authorities. Petty crimes and graffiti against a corporation running everything caught the attention of certain factions that moved to introduce him to their doctrine and practices. As soon as he was a member they encouraged him to form his own cell, or at least pick a partner, something her resisted preferring to work alone, until they 'insisted' forcing Ryuu to find someone willing to work with him.

    Present Life: Prefering to stay on the move he is currently on the organization's "active" list, before heat forcing him to lay low again. While he and Z have been working together for a bit they're still adjusting to eachother's tactics, most notably Z's refusal to give Ryuu back his gun.

    PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS

    Weaknesses: He has a bit of a temper, sometimes, and has a tendency to take things to heart. His sensitiveness is what keeps him from getting a good education.

    [​IMG]



    MENTAL CHARACTERISTICS


    Current Goal/Purpose: To find a family or someone he can depend on.

    Talents: (see "Strengths" above)

    Inabilities: He's not very good in any subject due to his dyslexia, and hasn't gotten any better since he doesn't go to school and doesn't get any help. He has a problem reading, sometimes and it isn't a surprise if he brings you the sugar instead of the salt.

    Fears: That he will always be alone. He loves Katu, but, sometimes, it's a real Human companion that can make all the difference.

    General Personality: He tries to keep out of the way, but, like any little boy, he gets into mischief every now and then. He can have a temper at times like said above, and he absolutely hates when people call him "short" or "just a kid". Kuniyuki can be a pretty interesting little boy, once you get to know him.

    Inner Personality: Depressed and angry inside, he wishes a lot of things, and dreams of things you would never imagine.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND


    General History: Kuniyuki's history is pretty short. Being orphaned at only 6, he has managed to raise himself ever since, and pretends not to miss the love of his parents. No one really knew of him or his parents since they were very poor, and mostly stayed to themselves as a family so when his parents were killed, no one knew there was a small child still alive and on his own, and no one cared to check.

    Present Life: He is now living in a small room behind one of the many cargo holds. He's been doing pretty well on his own an away from school, but most of the adults around the trains find it very worrisome to see a strange, 12-year-old, tattoed kid running around the Pachinko Parlor and the trains all by himself.

    Special Historic Notes: none
