The year's 2010, and things are kind of freaky in the city-state of Chalk...
... it is literally a melting pot for everything: We've got vampires, demons, half-human hybrids, dragons, monsters of all kinds, people of all kinds... think of the United States, and add a 'magical' flavor to it...
... it's not limited to just that, though. Chalk harbors one of the country's biggest scientific facilities; it's been abandoned for years, though... or has it? Some people have 'theories' that Chalk's military force is up to something in there...
... and of course, no city is free of crime... in fact, most people know very well that Chalk has been home to a mafia, running for at least five generations by now...
It's not all bad in Chalk, though... after all, there are two sides to every story...
... a team of anarchists who would do to oppose the government and their military, sabotage their plans for war...
... the men and women in the local police force, who try so hard to keep the peace...
Which side is good? Which side is bad? Or do they all have varying degrees of good and bad to them? It's all up to you...
~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~PM me if you'd like a more prominent position in one of the sections.The Military:
A near omnipotent force in the city-state of Chalk. Their technology is several times more advanced than that of the common folk's. There are rumors about their newest project, Azrael, and how human lab rats are being used in said project... it doesn't hurt that there have been mass disappearances...Characters in this society:
- Samuel Hazzard
- Elaine Becker
- Sinclair Wicker
- 'Leech'The Mafias:
While there are are rivals for everything, the main family would be the 'native' mafia to Chalk, led by an unsympathetic young man. This mafia is just like any other; they want money, turf and power. Most importantly, they want to steal the military's status as top dog in the city...Characters in this society:
- Elias Ophir Vera
- Charon Argyros
- Raphael CreedThe Police:
The hard working men and women of the city, trying very hard to keep the peace. But there's always a rat...Characters in this society:
- Cedric DonovanThe Anarchists:
These people are highly unorganized, have no particular grouping, ranking or order and want nothing to do with either the military, the mafia or the police - and sometimes, not even each other. They oppose everything for the sake of opposing everything, and so far, they don't seem to have gained anything from it...Characters in this society:
- Robert JamesThe People:
The common folk. Some are complacent to the city's situation. Others aren't. Sometimes their families get caught up in all the chaos of the major forces in the city, and they aren't all too happy about being indirectly involved...Characters in this society:The Creatures:
Despite having their rights, they are still outsiders. They seem to be just as lost and guileless as human being can be, but who knows if they might have an ulterior motive...Characters in this society:
- Clarence Taylor
- Simone LeRoi
- Leon Allard
- Roma Valerios
- Orestes Valerios
~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~o~Story:~ Arc I~
It starts when the project leader of Azrael, Samuel Hazzard, is approached by the fidgety (and mentally unstable) but talented Sinclair for something of a 'promotion', which is given, but under the penalty that if he fails, he will be handed over to their cruel overseer, the Brigadier General Becker. Meanwhile, in a bar downtown, Elias, the mafia boss, gives a pair of his underlings a mission that starts out being a cruel joke, but ends up being something that will risk the jobs and well-beings of both Raphael and Anna... not to mention, he is not aware that he's currently being tracked and observed by the wicked Brigadier General. Not too far from that very location, two policemen seem to be on the tail of a ghoul, who attracted the presence of Simone, the witch. After telling Robert (the ghoul) that he was being followed, the policemen were outed, where the rookie sadly, lost his life... to his very partner. Things are getting really chaotic now...Any suggestions, PM me. Also, 'arcs' will take place every 6-10 pages.
- Basic laws of physics apply. However, if your character is non-human, try to put limitations on whatever special power they may have. Such as, if your character can fly, there is a limit to how high he/she can go, and how long he/she is able to fly.
- There exist other 'dimensions', as demons have to come from somewhere
. However, try not to make posts such as 'and then he got bored and warped to the demon realm,' unless the specific power of your character would be to warp through dimensions/space/time. If they don't, though, make it more logical, like perhaps they have jewelry, a spell, or there is a portal that can allow them to do this.
- There is absolutely no limit to what powers, abilities or species you wish your character to be. If anything, the only thing that -can't- qualify for the RP would be an android. Cyborgs are allowed, but only if they are more realistic, like for example, they may have mechanical limbs, but they cannot run or jump very well because their parts are heavy/slow to respond.
- There is no limit to how many characters one can have.
- No god-modding.
- No double, triple, or quadruple posts.
- Don't use anybody else's RP characters unless you've been asked to take up their role (unlikely, but entirely possible).
- Keep things generally PG-13. Violence, swearing and romance is all allowed.
- On the opposite spectrum of things, light-hearted humor and comedy is allowed and greatly supported.
- Do not kill off somebody else's character unless you have made an arrangement with the person to do so.
- New characters can come and go on a whim. You don't have to use the same character for the entire RP if you get bored of them; switch it up, have fun.

At the age of 20 he was signed to project Azrael as an assistant researcher under doctor Morrisson, who from the very start appeared suspicious of the new arrival, whose doctors certificate had been forged by the military. Hazzard would spend the following years as an assitant researcher despite growing concern about his true role by his superior. Eventually Morrison went missing and the military assigned Hazzard as project leader of Azrael. After these events Hazzard began to exhibit a compulsive need to wear a gas mask, those working for him or with him can only guess what brought this about tough there are stories flying about.Picture: Click here to seeName:

Professional Assassin Working For Chalk's "Native" Mafia FamilyWeapons: Click here to seeAbilities:
-Ability to influence human minds (to an extent)
-Healing factor (speed of healing depends on the wound and/or method used)Personality:
Usually showing a stoic and nonchalant manner, Anna is far from being any of that. Given to cruelty and sadism, she can only be described as a manipulative demon who likes to be in control. Her daily acts include: identity theft, assault, arson, and cold blooded murder. Acts that (as an professional assassin) she finds totally justified. Yet, despite what might seem as a "troublesome-persona" she's always serious when it comes to business, never failing to complete any task.History:

He had been working for the military previously, but he suffered a mental breakdown at work (Sinclair has always been secretive of his personal life, so one could only guess what exactly triggered it), followed shortly by his vicious, random murder of one of his co-workers with the use of scientific equipment. He seems to be in denial of the whole incident. However, when Project Azrael started up, Sinclair was released from the hospital, at the military’s request (only so he could be recruited as a scientist for the military once again, and working on Project Azrael).Family:

Currently he is busy being a lazy good-for-nothing.Family:
