Recommended Posts

[COLOR=DarkOrchid][font=times][i]Let's start with an idea. A old idea in the new times. In the city of San Francisco, in the year 2099, where the old Chinese gangs still run rampant, prostitution, drugs, alcohol, and every other vice is indulged for a price.

Everything in this city has its price.

Happiness? Opium? Heroin? Cocaine? Pleasure? Fighting?

You name it, and it's been turned into a business by any one of many gangs. Organized crime is a beautiful thing. And here it's even easier because this particular city has never had a larger collection of dirty cops. Now. There are several brotherhoods here...each with their own particular name, each with their own rules and regulations. They have their own codes of conduct you must follow, capable of fitting your various personality quirks. If you like, you can be one of the members that speaks to other organizations about business practices, permissions for various enterprises, and otherwise a diplomat. Expect there to be plot, but giving it all away now would just ruin the ride.

Recommended reading/watching list:
"Dragonwings"
"Dragon's Gate"

[b]The Brotherhood of Eternal Repose:[/b]
Origin: Nickname for a powerful yaksha demon.

These men with their various underling women have strict codes of conduct. Very dangerous, they control a portion of the drug business and an underground fighting ring. Their nickname: The Sleepers, implies that it is their enemies that enjoy eternal repose, not them. If you want to be a Sleeper, you'd best be harsh, violent, serious, and with a sarcastic sense of humor.

[b]The Brotherhood of the Jade Forest:[/b]
Origin: An Immortal court of Heaven.

An organization for men who want to be brothel owners, the place where you go to find prostitutes. Best suited for men with loose morality, and those that like to profit off of the sufferings of others. Their nickname: The Jade Court, implies the beauty of their women, and their willingness to please for a price. To be a Jade Court member, it's best if you have no scruples and no sense of other's pain.

[b]The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity:[/b]
Origin: The Star of Longevity; Chinese deity.

A trafficking and drug running gang comprised of murderers, mercenaries, and thrill seekers. Widely considered more dangerous than the Sleepers, but more prone to making stupid mistakes due to their personality defects, this Brotherhood has attracted all the sorts of people that would otherwise grow up to be serial killers and mass murderers but now do it for wealth.

[b]Function:[/b] Enforcer

[b]Appearance:[/b] 5'4" and stocky with an infectious grin. Usually wears black suits with black shirts underneath, and is rarely seen without his dark sunglasses, even at night.

[b]Weapon of Choice:[/b] Baton

[b]Personality:[/b] Generally a happy go lucky guy known for his keen sense of humour and sharp wit. He becomes easily frustrated however, and has been known to break his own bones when angry at himself. This savagery is carried over to his victims, who are rarely left with enough intact body to identify without the aid of DNA, a by-product of his taking out his restrained anger on them. Detests using guns, largely cause of a misfire incident in his late teens.

Is also a dangerous flirt, who has unwittingly broken up more than one relationship with what he considers 'innocent flirting'. Multiple broken noses are testament to this. He's also a heavy smoker, and a heavy drinker.[/FONT][/SIZE][/COLOR]

[b]Gender[/b]: Male
[b]Organization nickname[/b]: War Dragon
[b]Age[/b]: 29

[b]Chinese Zodiac Sign[/b]: Year of the Horse

[b]Organization of Choice[/b]: The Brotherhood of Eternal Repose

[b]Function[/b]: Undergroud fight club boss and organizer. Well known for his superior martial arts skills, and often enters the rings himself to meet special challenges and have fun with other fighters. Satisfied with his position, though always looking for more ways to satisfy his greed and indulgence.

[b]Appearance[/b]: [URL=http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b191/Bklynstyles/Yuan3.jpg][1] - Before a Fight[/URL] - [URL=http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b191/Bklynstyles/Yuan1.jpg][2] - At a Brotherhood Meeting[/URL]

[b]Weapon of Choice[/b]: His martial arts - skilled in kickboxing, kung-fu, sanshou, and street fighting. If the situation calls for it, he will use his pair of Beretta 93R machine pistols.

[b]Biography[/b]:

Before joining the Brotherhood of Eternal Repose, Sai stumbled onto the underground fight scene run by the brotherhood at age 25 and was coaxed into a fight as an underdog to put over one of the regulars. Sai shocked the crowd and the brotherhood officials when he defeated and killed the man everyone thought he would lose to. After the fight, Sai was approached by Lu Sheng; the ring's organizer at the time and attacked out of a fit of rage since he had lost a hefty sum of money on a bet due to result of the fight. Sai fought back and almost killed Sheng until he was shot in the arm by one of the ring's assistants. What would have been Sai's last moments was stopped by one of the lower bosses of the brotherhood who killed Sheng and took Sai to one of the brotherhood's doctors and offered him a position as the new ring boss. Sai has pledged himself to the brotherhood and loves his new life.

Since joining the brotherhood, Sai has had an infatuation with Luyii, the organization boss's daughter. He has stayed loyal to the brotherhood for the preservation of his position and wealth, but also more specifically loyal to the brotherhood's leader in hopes that he may be favored well enough make Luyii his. On the other hand, he also expects that she would help his ranks within the brotherhood as well in the eyes of the leader and therefore the others. This of course in addition to the personal pleasures he desires to receive from her company.

[b]Personality[/b]:

Sai is a stern individual who enjoys fighting and beating people up. Since given the position of authority he has, he tends to abuse it gladly and answers to very few people other than the other higher ups of the brotherhood, and of course the leader. He is a sharp tongued and clever person who doesn't neccesarily have to resort to violence all of the time, he just prefers to. Sai has been known to go too far when roughing people up and takes great pleasure in beating people badly to the point of broken bones, massive bleeding, and sometimes death.

Sai, skilled in debate and business aside from his physical inclination, attends all of the important brotherhood meetings and is sometimes used for jobs that require his persuasion. Whether that means putting someone on the wrong end of his fist, or a bullet. When tending to matters of the fight club, Sai acts like a big shot and accepts all challenges made to him. He also detests it when things do not go his way and has been known to take aggresions out on others for it. [/FONT]

[indent][size=1][COLOR=DarkGreen][b]Name:[/b] Known only to her superiors.

[b]Gender:[/b] Female

[b]Callsign:[/b] Ghost Fox

[b]Age:[/b] 34 (Born in 2065)

[b]Chinese Zodiac Sign:[/b] Rooster

[b]Organization of Choice:[/b] The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity

[b]Function:[/b] Former legendary assassin. Ghost Fox now recruits and trains the next generation, often going to extreme means to do so.

[b]Appearance:[/b] Ghost Fox is a beautiful Chinese women of average height and build for her ethnicity. However, she is easily recognized by her trademark jade tunic, cape, and thigh-high boots. When on a mission or training her pupils Ghost Fox wears a jade-colored domino mask. Only her superiors have seen her without the mask.

[b]Weapon of Choice:[/b] Twin pistols. Ghost Fox is an expert in hand-to-hand combat, but prefers to use those skills only when neccessary. Her right hand, which was cut off during a failed hit, has been replaced with a virtually indestruble cybernetic model.

[b]Biography:[/b] Ghost Fox was born to wealthy aristocratic parents in Hong Kong, shortly before the third World War. As a girl she was trained in a wide variety of martial arts, all while being prepared for a life worthy of her bloodline. It was in her final year of school that her parents were assassinated for political reasons and her secret family fortune was claimed by the Chinese government.

The road that drove Ghost Fox from her life in Hong Kong to the role of an assassin in San Francisco is largely unknown. After years of service to The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity Ghost Fox was given a new mission: to recruit and train new assassins for the organization. Ghost is uncertain of her own qualifications for the position, but gladly accepted the role and the power that came with it.

[b]Personality:[/b] Ghost Fox is an intense and emotional woman with a superiority complex. Her aristocratic upbringing has given Ghost Fox a sense of entitlement, and instantly creates a conflict of interest with her superiors. Former heads of The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity have given into Ghost Fox's unpredictable behavior, giving her great influence over the organization in the past. After a bloody and violent coup an unpredictable new leader has taken the reigns of The Brotherhood. This new leader has a score to settle with Ghost Fox. It is uncertain whether or not she will become aware of this fact before it is too late.[/COLOR]

Edit: Changed name to Ghost Fox, since Jade Fox is apparently a character in CTHD. Whoops. -Shy[/size][/indent]

[font=times][COLOR=DarkOrchid]Signups so far are not bad as a whole, and the RPG itself will start in one to two days, depending on if people continue signing up.

What I'm looking for are characters who remain unique and original, and aren't all in the same gang.

Two problems:

Starwind: Your character upon closer inspection is too similar to BKstyles. Infatuation's with Luyii and fighting in the underground are acceptable, but don't give yourself too similar a function. Be creative.

Shy: Jade Fox is also the name of one of the main characters in the movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." This is bad.[/COLOR][/font]

[color=crimson][b]Name[/b]: Doctor Yi Xing, MD.

[b]Gender[/b]: Male.

[b]Organization nickname[/b]: Smiling Buddha.

[b]Age[/b]: 67.

[b]Chinese Zodiac Sign[/b]: Rat.

[b]Organization of Choice[/b]: The Brotherhood of Eternal Repose

[b]Function[/b]: Dr. Xing considers you for a moment and adjusts his glasses downward before answering. "I do what needs to be done with the skills I have." His charcoal black eyes rest on you and he seems uneasy at saying more. He raises his glass of wine and reaches into the front of his white lab coat, taking out a business card. He flips it around to the front and raises it in front of your eyes.

"My clinic." He says, takes your hand and places the card within it. "If you ever find yourself involved in any unfortunate accidents I am sure we can accommodate you." He finishes off his glass of wine, pushes his glasses up and flashes you a smile. "I'm sure you'll find my fees reasonable."

[b]Appearance[/b]: Dr. Xing is a tall, thin tree of a man. Upon looking at him you wonder if he is about to tip over as he slouches forward an amazing degree. His glasses are slightly rose tinted and add a colorful tint to an otherwise ghostly, wrinkled face. His ponytail is lengthy and well into graying having lost most of it's black color long ago. A thin mustache graces his upper lips although he has a near perpetual five o'clock shadow. His long limbs and body are hidden under his white lab coat. He wears a dress shirt, slacks and fashionable shoes underneath his coat wherever he goes. A bulky briefcase is always carried in his left hand.

[b]Weapon of Choice[/b]: Dr. Xing has little skill in martial arts and is mediocre with a firearm. He relies on a small team of bodyguards for his personal defense who are much more proficient than himself in these areas. When the need arises within a mission or fight he uses chemical agents he acquires illegally. Poisons, acids, nerve agents. Dr. Xing in a gas mask is usually a bad sign.

[b]Biography[/b]: The murder of the President of Taiwan by the radical, left-wing New Chinese Collective movement has been mostly forgotten since the spectacle of the Third World War. Within history books this is a minor note in comparison to the bombastic storm that came within a few weeks. The late President was found dead and confirmed later on of being poisoned. The investigation that followed was massive and the trail eventually lead to the NCC. The crackdown that followed led to the arrest or death of most members of the movement.

Dr. Xing was the only NCC member with the training and access to the materials used. He was charged with the murder and sentenced to execution within a week. That week coincided with the beginning of the War. Lost in the information haze that lingers from the War years is the young Doctor's fate. His death was presumed and is deemed relatively unimportant in comparison to the reconstruction effort.

The Sun Heights private clinic is a glaring oasis within a section of San Fran's urban decay. The Brotherhood of Eternal Repose gets treatment for 'free' although kickbacks from the higher ups within the organization happen at a regular clip. For all others if you can afford treatment, you receive treatment. The upper floors of the clinic are used as a depot for narcotics and chemical agents for the Brotherhood of Eternal Repose.

Dr. Xing, the general practitioner of the clinic, is an influential member of the Brotherhood of Eternal Repose. Many of his nurses serve as cleaners for the Brotherhood for the crimes that need to have been perpetrated by ghosts. Their skill at wiping evidence from crime scenes is almost magical.

[b]Personality[/b]: Purposefully private, he has a loose hold on moral guidelines regarding his profession. The lure of money outweighs his patients needs nine times out of ten. He is fond of small talk but never seems to reveal much of himself as he talks, instead slowly unraveling the mysteries of whomever or whatever he is interested in at the moment. He is fond of a joke and the only thing he ever seems to genuinely reveal is his smile.[/color]

[size=1][color=darkslateblue][b]Ugh, I'm not happy with this character. But, I guess that fits her personality, lol.

Name:[/b] Chi Zhu
[b]Gender:[/b] Female
[b]Organization nickname:[/b] ?Scarlet Mistress?
[b]Age:[/b] 21
[b]Chinese Zodiac Sign:[/b] Ox

[b]Organization of Choice:[/b] The Brotherhood of the Jade Forest

[b]Function:[/b] Brothel mistress/co-founder. She pretty much runs the place. Organizes small crime stuff.

[b]Appearance: [/b][url=http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/lifestyle/2006-05/23/xin_48050323091817906231.jpg][b]Chi[/b][/url] stands at a unique 5?9 and weighs a healthy 140 lbs. Her black eyes pierce right through anything that stands in her way. Her black hair shines with a hint of red in the sunlight, framing her oh so perfectly shaped face. Not too round, not too square. She never tans, but she somehow has a soft bronze-like glow and full crimson lips; making her stand out in a crowd of other Chinese women. She typically only wears scarlet red lipstick for make-up. And a short-length, skin tight white dress stretches and hugs every voluptuous curve Chi possesses; accompanied by a red lace garter around her left thigh. If she?s feeling a little, just a little, modest, she?ll accompany the white dress with a business blazer.

[b]Weapon of Choice:[/b] This bombshell carries very little weaponry. Her choice in weapons is knives; in which she carries on her at all times. One switchblade finds home in the garter on her left thigh. One butterfly knife tucked away in a small handbag Chi carries. And a small dagger disguises itself as a broach nestling right between Chi?s breasts. Of course she?s familiar with hand-to-hand combat, but her aim and swiftness is remarkable. Besides, with the smoking body she?s blessed with, who needs any more weapons than that?

[b]Biography:[/b] Chi was born into poverty. She was raised in some of the worst areas in/surrounding Singapore. The family never really stayed put; always being forced to move out of the shitholes they lived in because money was hard to keep a hold of?.especially when you have 4 other siblings, and two coke-addicted parents. Chi grew up in the streets, learning the ways of riff-raff and selling both herself and whatever drugs she could swipe from her parents.

Eventually, she wound up pushing a very dangerous, not so known, drug. The young man who purchased the drug ended up having an allergic reaction and ultimately died. But not before he ratted the vixen out to his buddies. Of course, a gang of around 14 men found her?with a body like hers, it?s impossible to miss her. So, they found her, and all decided the best punishment for her was, obviously, rape and death. Unable to handle 14 men, Chi tried to fight her way. She got a good stab or two in some of the men, but was quickly overtaken. Luckily enough for Chi, she was saved by the man she calls ?Boss?. Ironically, he was the head hancho of the gang. Feeling fortunate, ?Boss? felt Chi was too rare and beautiful to be killed. He offered her the dubious job of being his mistress and helping him run his brothel?of course, she?d have to be the main attraction. But he promised he?d never subject her to such torment as the men had planned. She would live a life of slavery, but would be paid vast sums of money and protection.

[b]Personality:[/b] Cold as stone. Living the life she had to, Chi?s emotions have pretty much been numbed and given her a sour attitude. The only hint of emotion she has is for Boss.; hate but grateful for her life. She?s a fierce woman, and unforgiving. Don?t come crying to her if you got a rough night in the dirty beds of her brothel; you?ll get no sympathy, and possibly a kick to the face.[/color][/size]

[INDENT][SIZE=1][b]Name:[/b] Hong-Fu Li (given name, surname)

[b]Gender:[/b] Male

[b]Organization Nickname:[/b] Wayward Hare

[b]Age:[/b] 22

[b]Chinese Zodiac Sign:[/b] Rabbit

[b]Organization of Choice:[/b] The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity

[b]Function:[/b] Underground ring fighter, occasionally doing the various hitman jobs that appeal to him.

[b]Appearance:[/b] Standing at an impressive 5'11?, Hong-Fu is the tallest member of his family, and often towers over those he hangs around. He has developed a muscled upper body from all of his daily ?workouts? (fights, brawls, trouble he gets into and beats his way out of, etc.), which he has toned with the occasional visit to his personal gym. He has dark brown eyes and black hair that he has dyed red at the tips, normally sporting longish bangs that drape across his eyes.

[b]Weapon of Choice:[/b] Usually his fists, but he can work with essentially anything he can get his hands on.

[b]Biography:[/b] Son of a wealthy and powerful tyrant, Hong-Fu was born into the world of underground royalty, though many would say he doesn't at all behave like it. Spoiled from a young age, he has grown both extremely selfish and fickle. Having two older (and much more mature and successful) brothers, his father pays him little mind, seeing him as nothing but a failure compared to his siblings, but continues to give him money whenever he asks for it. His mother was worse, almost always pretending like he wasn't there, which, in addition to other things, helped him develop his current twisted opinion of women.

[b]Personality:[/b] Despite his age, Hong-Fu usually acts less like a young man and more like a child. Due to his short attention span, tendency to throw violent tantrums when disappointed, and his vicious desire to do whatever anyone says he can't, he is usually seen doing more 'field-work', fitting him more into the role of a grunt than the 'prince' that his background entitles him to be. Violent and often merciless, he has developed quite a reputation among the underground fights' betting circle as a 'sure win' against most opponents. He has won over three hundred matches since his entry to the sport on his twentieth birthday. He isn't very book-smart, but he has been able to surprise the more intellectual members of his circle of friends, and even his family, with insight and sophisticated articulation they would normally be convinced that he lacked. He is fairly lucky when it comes to money, as well, and enjoys winning large sums of cash, and the occasional woman, whenever he finds something to bet on.

It is his low-class behavior in spite of his established family history and his zodiac sign that has earned him the name ?Wayward Hare? within the organization.[/SIZE][/INDENT]

Name: Dr. Sun Xiao

Gender: Male

nickname: Resplendent Crane

Age: 35

Chinese Zodiac Sign: Monkey

Organization of Choice: Jade Forest by loose affiliation

Function: Gentleman of Lecher, Negotiator.

Appearance: 6'1, slim yet toned. Wears glasses and has long black hair.

Weapon of Choice: Words, although carries a sword hidden within a decorative cane. Also has access to many prescription drugs due to his profession.

Biography: Born to a moderately wealthy Chinese family, Sun enjoyed a very pleasant middle class life in America. A child prodigy, Sun found himself making logistical decisions within the Jade Forest (he joined out of the excitement of it all) before he graduated high school. With the help of his adopted organization, Sun went through college and med school, finishing at the age of 24 with an M.D in psychiatry. After finishing his residency, Sun was asked by the bosses to take over an old building that was owned by the organization and find some use for it. First and foremost he created an office on the top floor, and the rest of the building became dedicated to the organization's cause, thus making Sun an accidental pimp and owner of an escort service.

Sun began writing books related to his field of study on the human psyche and eventually rose to prominence in his field. With his newfound fame, his list of clients became more and more prominent and eventually he found himself dining with senators and millionaires and providing them with company as they saw fit. His branch of the organization is becoming more self sufficient by the day, and his ties with the jade forest are becoming ever so much more limited nowadays.

Personality: Charismatic and very likeable. He has a physician's stare, unchanged by pain nor deterred by it. Smiles and occasionally jokes out of sarcasm rather than trying to be funny, yet his sarcasm is somewhat charming. Has a love of the human body and looks upon it as a work of art.

[SIZE=1][[B]EDIT[/b]] After a bit of a chat with my darling wife, I've decided to completely rewrite my character to something a little more ethereal.


[B]Name:[/B] CLASSIFIED

[B]Gender:[/B] Male

[B]Organization Nickname:[/B] [The] Raven

[B]Age:[/B] Appearance indicates early to mid 20s.

[B]Chinese Zodiac Sign:[/B] [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_%28zodiac%29]Rat[/url]

[B]Organization of Choice:[/B] Federal Bureau of Investigation

[B]Function:[/B] Special Agent

[B]Appearance:[/B] [url=http://www.mrx.no/album236/Men_In_Black_Agent.html]The Raven.[/url]

FBI training of the late 21st century has centred around one simple precept: deception, and as such it's special agents are conditioned to appear far physically weaker than is actually the case. Raven, despite appearing to be somewhat lanky and underdeveloped is more than capable of holding his own against and opponent of significantly greater frame and strength, though FBI training is geared more towards silent elimination than direct physical confrontation. As such, Raven will never allow his face to be seen, even in direct contact with others i.e. he will hide in shadows or use voice-only methods of communication.

[B]Weapon of Choice:[/B] Variety of covert weapons depending on mission requirements, including small arms and long range rifles. Also trained in a selection of close-quarters-combat and hand-to-hand styles as well as silent assassination methods, such as garrotte wire and knives.

[B]Biography:[/B] CLASSIFIED

[B]Personality: [/B] Cool and entirely calculating, if compared to a weapon, The Raven would be a scalpel, used for the surgical termination of threats to the United States federal government. One would however be wrong if they were to think The Raven is something of an automaton as this couldn't be further from the truth. Special Agents are trained to operate nearly independently after they've been given their orders, which will be completely at any cost in a variety of creative manners.

In person, Raven is charming, sophisticated and definitely alluring.[/SIZE]

Am I cool enough for this to be considered a cameo?



Name: Neil Scruggs

Gender: Male

Nickname: Rave

Age: 28

Chinese Zodiac Sign: Rabbit

Organization of Choice: San Francisco Police Department

Function: Plainclothes undercover Narcotics Agent - Rank: Sergeant

Appearance: Standing tall at six-foot four, Rave is well-built and fits his frame well. Weighing in at two-hundred fifty-two pounds, his defined muscles and broad form carries the weight well. Medium-short length hair and a thick scruff covers his neck and joins in with elongated sideburns. He has a tattoo of a tribal phoenix on his right arm. Often wears black jeans or military-grade cargo pants, steel-toed boots, and sleeveless shirts, a white sleeveless undershirt and a black or slate overshirt. Conceals a varying amount of knives on his person, notably being a Gerber Covert in his right front pocket, a Gerber Paraframe II in his back left pocket, and a SOG SEAL Pup, holstered with combat-grade nylon cover case through his belt at his right hip. Scarred knuckles and forearms, as well as several gunshot scars on his torso and a vertical slightly left and off-center on his bottom lip show the wear and tear he has undergone in life.

Weapon of Choice: Considered a verifiable genius in hand-to-hand combat of many forms, including Muay Thai, several practices of Judo, several practices of karate, a basic understanding of Tiger Style, general-use aikido and jiu-jitsu, an avid boxer, and is an experienced street fighter, Neil is definably a lethal threat when barehanded. He is also an expert with bladed weapons, knives in specific. His training also gives him general proficiency with modern and dated firearms.

Biography: An all-American, Neil is a mutt, or as he prefers to call it, a "Heinz 57." He draws roots from mostly Russian, Cajun, French, and mixed European. Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, Neil enrolled at the Naval Amphibious Base in Coronado after a brief tour in the Pacific as a sonarman at the age of nineteen. He always had an interest in the Special Forces, and decided to try out for BUD/S selection. He passed the training courses at the head of his class and was enrolled in SEAL Team 2. He served in active duty for over seven years and traveled to more than thirty countries. He is extremely well trained, and has a natural skill that surpassed many of his fellow warriors, and his actions in combat and in other duties earned him much praise and attention. His abilities range from counter-terrorism in the physical world to the virtual world to political overlook and security detail. He is multilingual.

His overall skill eventually earned him a promotion to E-9 and was selected for testing as a Command Master Chief. But before he was able to complete his Command training, a personal emergency aroused. His wife had died while he was on duty from brain cancer. The shock was tremendous, as she had not even been diagnosed. He resigned from the Navy and bid his squadmates goodbye. He was inactive for a year, living off his sizable pension, before he applied to the SFPD. His resume in itself was enough to earn him a Detective position, but he turned it down in favor of walking the beat. Not much else is known, as a good portion of his adult life has been classified, and that he remains silent on his younger years. In his own words, he prefers to live two seconds ahead, not a year and a month in the past. Inquiries to his late wife are often met with a distant stare and a wry smile.

He generally a hard-boiled and stone-hearted, the things he had seen in his tours of duty making him very cynical about life. He is, though, still a military man at heart, and shows a mild respect to those that he meets and is a gentleman around women, although lately he has been becoming more and more pessimistic. He feels as if he is reverting to something less human, a personification of the battlefield, what he usually felt during a combat situation.

His nickname "Rave" comes from the wild, uncontrollable fervor he experiences in a fight, particularly a close-quarters fight. Fellow SEALs have remarked in debriefing that he didn't even give enemies a chance to bleed before moving on to the next target. Normally, this is ideal for a Special Forces commando, but many times he went off the charts and would not stop, even when mission parameters were being infringed.

Personality: Collected, but far from calm. He is clinically introverted, but he prefers to think it is from the nature of his previous profession. He is hesitant to use his abilities for mundane reasons, but when he does get started, he is usually hard to quell. Though considers himself civil, Neil is rarely anything but anti-social, and has been experiencing hazes, especially in moments of stress, such as arrests, and fading out to find his fellow officers holding him back from a severely battered suspect.

I've been reading this RPG lately, and I would like to join in, if that's okay.

Name: Yan Chen

Gender: Male

Organization Name: Razorback

Age: 32

Chinese Zodiac Sign: Pig

Organization of Choice: The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity

Function: Drug Designer/Smuggler

Appearance: Sweaty, trembling, and perpetually disheveled, it is anyone's guess as to what Yan's actual height is, given that he is usually sitting down or slouched in some awkward pose over a lab table. To this end, his height is estimated as being somewhere between four and a half to five and a half feet. His daily attire consists of a fading gray T-shirt with the undissolved remainder of the name of some since-forgotten medical school on the front, a pair of black track pants spotted with an almost frightening variety of chemical stains, and a pair of sneakers so worn down and burned with acids that they have been reduced to deformed lumps resembling sandals more than sneakers. Yan's head is shaved completely bald, and prominently features a variety of white scars from a number of surgeries. If one were to look under his shirt, one would see multiple other scars, some with stitches still remaining as they have not completely healed yet. His teeth are yellowing and his brown eyes are consistently either bloodshot or jaundiced from liver damage, and the only thing that seems to remain constant about Yan is his unnatural smile, one that suggests curious amusement at whatever it is he happens to be looking at, regardless of the situation. That expression has not left Yan's face for years.

Weapon of Choice: Being a drug designer, Yan has a preference for fighting with drugs. He has a tranquilizer dart gun which he prefers to load with his own products, and they can cause a variety of (sometimes instantaneously) fatal illnesses or symptoms in their targets. The gun is an experimental model, and resembles a compact six-shooter that features a compressed gas cartridge in the grip rather than a firing pin. Furthermore, the darts are specially designed to twist and unfold to reveal fletches as they travel through the air, and the fletches unfold completely when the needle hits its target, preventing the dart itself from penetrating the skin too deeply. This assures that even a shot fired at point-blank range is non-lethal, and that the dart itself does nothing to the victim beyond delivering its cargo. For this reason, Yan is sometimes seen using the gun to give himself injections of his latest product, usually directly into the brain.

Biography: Once an idealistic med student who aspired to becoming a great neurologist. Yan became disillusioned with his practice while working on his thesis (which dealt with modern research on the effects of recent illegal designer drugs) and decided to test some of the subjects of his research on his own brain. Though he knew enough about neurochemistry to stave off a full-blown addiction, his habit eventually landed him in trouble with a small-time gang who demanded compensation. As a result, Yan started swallowing balloons and carrying a variety of substances across borders. Yan continued this practice over four years until one of his boss' products ruptured inside his stomach and caused a near-fatal reaction. Though Yan survived, he knew he wouldn't survive attempting to explain the situation to The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity, whom he was delivering the drugs to. In a panic, Yan drove a syringe through his own stomach and, through some brief research and mad dash to a variety of stores, Yan managed to discover the identity of and synthesize some of the drugs that he had been given in time for the shipment's delivery date.

Yan's troubles did not end there, though, as the Infinite Longevity became aware of the fact that that Yan's drugs were synthesized hastily and sub-par. A few furious minute-long phone calls later, the Infinite Longevity demanded that Yan explain himself, and so he described the experience of having nearly overdosed accidentally and having to rebuild the drugs based on his analysis of their effects and basic components. The Brotherhood's rage at the situation, however, was only stymied by their awe of this mule's ability to recreate the substances so quickly. As penance, they told him, Yan would be working in their labs until he could repay the debt on the drugs lost in the transaction. It has been another five years since then, and though both the Brotherhood and Yan acknowledge that Yan's debts have been paid off, Yan continues to work under them as both a designer and a mule, purely for the purpose of continuing his research on designer drugs and the human brain, and, of course, the opportunity to reap the benefits of experiencing his own creations.

Currently, Yan is often either working in a lab or traveling quickly and noiselessly from one drug deal to another, usually concealing drugs inside his own body. As a result of his near-fatal overdose, Yan now makes a point of hiding his drugs elsewhere inside his body, usually opting to have them surgically implanted inside his ribcage or among his bowels until such a time as he can remove them, hence the great number of scars on his body. Yan also makes a point of never distributing anything he doesn't test on himself first, and this habit has caused him a number of brain problems that he has had to correct through surgery. To this end, Yan is already intimately familiar with everyone within the Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity and its allies who has any knowledge of field surgery or neurosurgery, as he is known to call upon their services often.

Yan's habit of introducing whatever he pleases into his body has earned him the name "Razorback". Though his appearance reeks of a man approaching his death before his time, Yan is unafraid to let others know that he is very much alive, and assures them that no brain-addling substance on the earth will be able to end him.

Personality: HIGHLY variable, depending on what combination of chemicals happens to be in his system at the time. However, his most often-recurring personality is surprisingly jovial and finds amusement in absolutely everything. He tends to punctuate sentences with the tiniest of chuckles and only laughs outright when a chemical of his design forces him to do so. Most aren't sure whether to consider Yan an object of pity or annoyance, and it remains anyone's guess what sort of emotion or brain dysfunction he will be experiencing next. Despite this, Yan makes a point of completing assignments punctually and with a fervor apt for a practitioner of medicine, and his skill remains valuable regardless of his mental inconsistencies.

[b]Name:[/b] Fei Long

[b]Gender:[/b] Male

[b]Organization Name:[/b] Sleeping Tiger

[b]Age:[/b] 19

[b]Chinese Zodiac:[/b] Rat

[b]Organization of Choice:[/b] The Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity

[b]Function:[/b] Enforcer/Ring Fighter

[b]Appearance:[/b] Lei is a tall, slender young man, composed mostly of tight, slender muscle. His skin is dark and scarred in several visible places, including a small crescent moon on the corner of his right eye. His hair is dark black, highlighted with red streaks which he combs back slickly, allowing small strands to spike out in the back. He dresses loosely in clothing that he can fight and move in easily. Favors long, black shorts and the color red to be worn otherwise, he prides himself as a snappy dresser. His expression is usually in a state of fatigue or lethargy, which hides his brilliant jade eyes. His dominant features are also exceptionally youthful, despite the many scars he has accumulated.

[b]Weapon of Choice:[/b] Being a ring fighter, Lei will only allow himself to use his body in any form of combat. A prodigy in several unarmed martial arts, he is a championship fighter using styles such as Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, Hap Ki Do, and most of all, his signature style, Zui Quan Drunken Boxing. These different styles added in with his peculiar demeanor makes for a highly unpredictable and powerful opponent in any form of combat, be it one on one or a gang brawl.

[b]Biography:[/b] Orphaned since childhood, Lei was found by the burgeoning members of the Brotherhood of Infinite Longevity. From that point on, he was trained to become their selected prize fighter, become a real project in their hands; they molded him into the best possible warrior they could shape. While under this training, he was given a first rate education in the ways of the underworld, and became a truly gifted enforcer and shake-down artist. He has recently been deemed ready to go into his first professional ring fight. An unknown dark horse, the Brotherhood is prepared to see their battle tested results finally earn them some money?.

[b]Personality:[/b] Fei Long?s upbringing amongst the prideful members of the Brotherhood led him to grow into a young man driven solely by pride, honor, and animalistic fury. His drive in life is to prove himself to be the greatest fighter ever born, and will stop at nothing to prove this to all. However, when he is not occupied by fighting or training, he can be a very laid back individual. As a matter of fact, it is not until he enters the stage of combat that he actually seems that threatening. He spends his down time going to clubs and romancing women, which he is very talented at. However, when presented with a chance to fight, Lei?s demeanor switches from a laid back young man to a blood thirsty demon, ready to fight to the death.
