PostSubject: For Utoria OOC   Tue Aug 27, 2013 11:04 pm

This idea was originally designed to be a group rp but i'm sure if anyone was interested it could be adapted to be a 1x1. I'm testing the waters to see if anyone actually comes online here anymore, because everytime I'm online I'm the only one here.

They say that when you die your spirit goes to the afterlife. They say you can become a reincarnate. They say many things. But I know it isn’t true. People aren’t actually dying. Their families think they die and that it is their family members that get buried but I know it isn’t. They don’t die. No one dies in Utoria they just get put into the space and come back in someone else’s body, inhabiting it. I saw it all. I have seen it happen, they step into the space and they come out as someone else. I am scared. They know someone found them out; they will hunt me down and kill me soon. There won’t be a body for me. They will throw me into the incinerator. I will die for real. I don’t mind dying, but incineration is not my death of choice.


You work for Utoria. They rule you, control you. It is a society and you obey the rules. You are monitored every moment of every day of your life through the chips. The chips were introduced as a way to keep track of wayward souls, people likely to stray off the beaten track so to speak. Over the generations, it became custom to be chipped, young or old, delinquent or stand up citizen. It took place of a Census. Their eyes are everywhere, cameras watching your every move, motion detectors, alarms, signals, droids, all there to keep you in line. As a child you were taught to obey. Never disobey Trueheart Industries, never toe the line. Because people that toe the line, people that cross it completely, they disappear, they just vanish. No one knows why.

Sometimes it's people who just vanish, for no reason at all. Children, teenagers, old men and women, people of all ages just vanish.

Maybe you saw things, things no one should have seen, maybe you lost a friend, a brother, a lover, a parent, or maybe you just believe there has to be something better than the oppression that you feel here. For some reason or another you joined the Sanctum. You are working to find out the true activities that are going on, and you're fairly sure Trueheart Industries is behind it.


Or do you work for the other side? The enemy? Do you enforce the rules, protect the secrets, keep the truth hidden? Maybe you don't even know what's going on. You're just doing your job, keeping an eye on things.


The rp is set in a futuristic setting, think AeonFlux meets I-Robot with a little Minority Report thrown in. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, Click Here and Here and throw in a few more fun gadgets and creativity. It's based in the year 6001AD, and the population outgrew itself and collapsed. The only fertile area that is known of is this city. No one leaves the walls for fear of what lies on the outside, and in truth, most people forgot that there ever was an outside.

Alright, that's the world, please, do consider joining.

My characters:

Name: Carter Trueheart
Age: 32
Gender: Male
Appearance: http://www.faseeon.com/images-data/suits-for-men-72.jpg
Personality: Carter is a suave, charming and smooth operator. He is a successful businessman and the best choice to take over the head of Trueheart Industries when his father passes on. He has intelligence and looks combined to win over the people of Utoria, and the people skills to boot. He knows how to handle awkward or uncomfortable situations and is a bit of a ladies man. Underneath all that polish though there is a deeper layer, a darker layer.
Biography: Carter was born the oldest of two children, to Gregory and Claire Trueheart. He was raised with an understanding of business, pleasure and numbers, and his wealthy upbringing afforded him the best of the best. Still, even then, he never thought himself better than anyone as a child. He was a warm hearted child, but as he got older, he learnt that not everyone was as understanding or likeminded to him. His younger sister passed on from a virus thought to have been brought in from the outside. The doctors couldn't cure it, but after the loss of the young Trueheart child, they were able to create a vaccine, thus preventing an outbreak among the citizens of Utoria. When he became a man his father passed on responsibilities that he couldn't handle anymore. Since then Carter has been gradually working his way up the employment ladder in his family's business.
Job: Assistant director of political and public affairs at Trueheart industries.
Other: Trueheart.





Name: Maxine 'Max' Baxter
Age: 26
Gender: Female
Appearance: http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif
Personality: Max is a woman who likes to think she is made of steel, with no soft spots. She is stubborn, wilful, and sometimes just plain foolish. She can get too caught up in proving herself and find herself in situations she'd never have been involved in if she'd just remained clear and level headed. She has a temper that strikes at the worst of times and a soft spot for children and people in trouble.
Biography: Maxine suffered an unfortunate childhood, her mother passing on when she was just nine years old. Her father worked for Trueheart Industries at the time, but he wasn't anything important, a lowly drone worker. He provided for his family, Maxine and her older siblings, taking care of them as best he could while suffering from the loss of his wife. Life resumed as normally as it could, until the day the Sanctum got a hold of him. They'd hoped that he could tell them something of the Trueheart Industries plans, but being such a low level clearance worker, he knew nothing. Somehow though, the higher ups must have found out and assumed he knew something, because Henry Baxter vanished. His oldest children had to go into the work force to provide for the rest of them, and Maxine never forgave her father's disappearance. She joined with the Sanctum when she was nineteen, determined to bring her father's murderer to justice, because there was no doubt in her mind that he was dead.
Job: Robotics ~ runs a robotics repair and parts shop.
Other: Sanctum

Name: Alex Deshayne
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Appearance: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/207/8/b/matt_jeevas_cosplay_by_doomkittyz-d58quh4.jpg
Personality: Alex is a man who never learned to be fair, from a child he had been taught by his older brother to lie and cheat and steal to get what he needed. He is confident in himself and his ability to use words to get out of bad situations. He is extremely smart and good with technology. He tends to be a loner and will only fight for himself. Until he sees a pretty face to go after.
Biography: He was raised by his brother from age 7 to 17 after their parents disappeared. It was during this time he learned how to survive from him, learned how to cheat and to steal. His brother joined Sanctum when Alex was 15, naturally Alex followed, here he learned about his aptitude for technology, being able to hack robots or bank accounts with ease. When he was 20 his brother vanished, this caused Alex to break away from Sanctum for awhile and live on his own, with his hacking ability very few know he exists, and he never wants for money. He knows Trueheart is behind the disappearances and wants revenge, but is reluctant to be around Sanctum after they failed to protect his brother.
Job: Unemployed/Hacker(both for self and sometimes freelance)
Other: Ex-Sanctum but maintains small ties for information.
