    Dog Days Discussion and Sign Up

    Discussion in 'Role Play Discussion' started by Kaitou Wolf, Oct 29, 2014.

    In a fictional town in Florida, life always goes on. People live, die, attend schools, get in trouble, have a few laughs, etc. Your character lives in this town. What is their life? Their jobs? Their dreams and wishes?
    This is a slice of life role play where you take command of a character. The main focus is the town and the college. Be sure to create an experience and use realistic issues.
    Rules:
    No godmodding
    Nothing supernatural or sci-fi related
    Do not go over the PG-13 rating in actions. Characters can smoke, swear, and be violent all they want, but no sex scenes.
    Be realistic. This is a drama. Explore realistic issues.
    Don't be a mary sue
    Don't be a dick!
    Have fun!

    Character sheets are pretty straightforward. PM me your character sheets for approval before posting on here.

    Name: Roxy Dillinger (Roxy Rolla)
    Age: 21
    Appearance: [​IMG]
    Bio: Roxy was born up north in some shit ass small town in Canada. Her dad, Joe Dillinger was a key leader of the Hell's Angel's and her mom was an Italian housewife who looked after Roxy and her three brother's. She was also an impeccable singer and could play the piano with ease. Joe, Carter, and Jaxson were her three older brothers and were building up rank within the Angels. They helped teach her how to scrap and build bikes, which is a hobbie she also shared with her father.

    She was the youngest and claimed to be the smartest of the bunch. She was never encouraged to join the biker gang and was pushed towards working on her schooling. She had a large, semi dangerous family who watched over her during her teenage years, making sure she stayed out of trouble and keep her mind set on her goals. When she hit 18 though, she decided to move down to Florida on a scholarship for Biochemistry. Which she lost when she high jacked a hot red mustang from an alumni. Instead of flunking out of college and returning home, she works at a strip joint called Cyanide, where she earns enough to pay for school and rent.
    Occupation: Stripper at Cyanide.
    Hobbies: She loves working on cars, playing chess and practicing her self-defense techniques at the local gym.
    Skills: She has a photogenic memory which helps her get through school with ease. She is also in top physical shape and can kick your ass if you get on her bad side. She is an incredible cook and a terrible drunk. She also is a fabulous driver, and enjoys fast cars if she can get her hands on them.

    Name: Eli Grady

    Age: Twenty-something

    Appearance: Eli Grady stands an impressive six foot and wear flannel and blue jeans and cowboy boots. He's a handsome young man with bright eyes and a solid chin. He's also got plenty of muscle under his flannel shirts. But unlike his buddy Jesse, Eli Grady changes his clothes quite often just really loves flannel.

    Bio: Eli Grady is a legend alllllll over Alabama, he and his buddy Jesse just came up to Florida to find some new work cause....of a certain incident that happened back down Alabama and what not, some really messy stuff that they both would rather forget. But any questions about Grady or his bio can be answered by him or his buddy Jesse. But they will tell ya!

    Eli Grady is such a legend that this one time....story goes that him and Jesse went down to Scottland to do some fishin, right? And they caught the Loch Ness monster and cut its head off and even brought it back to Alabama but the government confiscated the head and erased all the evidence.
    Jesse and Grady swear its a true story and it really happened ask anyone who knows them they will tell ya the same.

    A lot of stories about Eli Grady and he came to Florida to make even more!!!

    Occupation: Whatever is around or pays the best

    Hobbies: Every thang

    Skills: Everythang ....ask Jesse or Grady about it

    Name: Eli Grady's buddy Jesse ...Jesse Quick

    Age: Twenty something- forty something.....he's some kinda age its kinda vague.

    Appearance: Jesse Quick is taller than Grady two feet and sports a big bushy beard. Jesse’s got barely any teeth left and the ones that are yellow. His face is covered in scars, scratches and blemishes from various random drugs he’s taking over the years and still might take. Hygiene is rare so the constant overalls he wears are battered and torn and his only pair boots are caked in dried dirt. To top it off Jesse wears a red trucker's cap.



    Bio: Jesse Quick was born and raised somewhere in Alabama to a poor father and an even poorer mother. His mom was a hooker and his daddy beat him and his mama something fierce, made little Jesse’s ass as red as a tomatoe. When Jesse was fourteen his dad ran off with a stripper named Hot Cheeks after years of cheating on Mrs Quick. Because of this Jesse has an unhealthy interest in strippers and trying to sleep with them and really loves to go to strip clubs and yell at strippers.

    Thinks their filthy little whores who he loves to watch dance

    Due to the fact he was poor most of his life Jesse had many nights with no food or way to bath so he isn't full fond of water or how to clean himself properly. Due to the lack of supervision it was very easy for Quick to fall into a bad crowd and become addicted to cocaine and crystal meth.

    Yet one day in his late teens a smiling face greeted a Jesse Quick who wasting away in a gutter a guy a flannel shirt who liked one of them fellers on a Romance novel. But this guy had a camera and asked "You wanna make some movies?"

    And Jesse who was homeless, hungry and filled with drugs could only respond with .... "Sure."

    Been like that ever since and life sure has been different since he became Grady's buddy but those old mental scars are still fresh as ever.

    Occupation: Anything he can get paid for like his buddy but is more cool to live on the streets and be homeless.

    Hobbies: Filmin and tellin stories

    Skills: High sense of smell and good camera work

    Name: Bryn Michaels

    Age: 22

    Appearance: Has straight natural black hair with bangs, which she usually styles in a messy topknot bun. Her brown eyes are behind big thick-framed black glasses. She's 5'4 and has a cute elfish face. Her attire is hipster with a vintage twist; think a lot of shirts with peter pan collars, circle skirts, vintage dresses, colored leggings with flats or boots, and of course scarves. Yep in Florida. Don't judge.

    Bio: Bryn grew up in Pensacola, Florida with her widowed mother and older sister. Her father died of cancer when she was ten years old. Being an architect, he was the creative one of the family, always teaching her that hard work and persistence could also be a lot of fun. They'd often do projects together and were very close. His death crushed her, mentally and physically. During this hard time, her mom would give her books to take her mind off of her emotions. Bryn liked reading, but what she truly loved was when books had pictures. She studied them closely, how the people or cartoons in the pictures posed and smiled. She frequently visited the library to check out even more books of her own. From then on, she wished to one day be an artist.
    Although, she didn't have the talent for drawing, on her twelfth birthday she got her first cheap camera from her grandparents. She took pictures of literally everything in sight! And she LOVED IT. After saving up money for a better digital camera and eventually a SLR, she entered several photography contests and won a scholarship. She chose to stay in her home state and live at the school there. Along with her studies, she constantly takes photos for the college and runs her own photography business on and off campus.

    Personality: Bryn is a hardworking woman, absorbed in her work while still managing to have fun with it. She does hide a secret though, she suffers from an anxiety and stress disorder. She takes medication but there's always a risk of an attack when she's with crowds of people. This doesn't mean she isn't friendly...she is just very specific (make that extremely specific) with who she talks to. When it comes to potential clients though, she puts on quite the show. One thing for sure, she is a girl who gets things done! The downfall? She can be pretty overly confident and conceited.
    Most of the time she sees everything behind the viewfinder and is known to get herself into interesting situations to snap the perfect shot.

    Occupation: Student majoring in Creative Arts. Runs a Photography business. Freelances for the college newsletter & website.

    Hobbies: Photoshoots. Reading. Studying. Shopping. Starbucks (yeah this is a hobby, duh.). Editing photos on her laptop. Fangirling over TV shows and movies. Social media. Trying to get as many likes on her Facebook business page and Instagram as she can. Stalking her business rivals...they must go down!!!

    Skills: Bryn has the book smarts. She's an encourager and knows how to make people feel good about themselves (which means she's good at lying...shh). She is observant and has the eye for things. She is grounded in who she is and doesn't let anyone convince her otherwise.

    Age: 24 years old
    Gender: Male
    Personality: A rebel man on stage while a more intellectual one out of stage. Even with that both have a cynical behaviour, but the real man has an apparent lack of interest in many things. If things become tense he is prone to an aggresive behavior.

He is trying to get his music degree but has failed a year, people thinks that is the natural lack of interest for the mundane of rockstars like him, however truly he had some problems with his family and besides, if there is a lack of interest is 'cause he is often more focused on his other's hobbies. Don't lie to yourself, he is truly into the music, but he also doesn't wish to be a "dumb person in society" and want to have also a life outside of music.
    Occupation: Rockstar "at the college".

    Name: Joseph Knox
    Age: 18
    Appearance: He is six feet tall, has straight brown hair that goes down to the back of his neck, and covers his eyebrows, going slightly into his brown eyes, his skin is pale, he has a lithe build, slightly muscular.
    Bio: He is currently getting his degree in Criminal Justice, he lives in the dorms with his twin brother Leon, though they do have a house in town. But Joe prefers to stay away from there when possible for personal reasons...

    Joe and Leon are very close, to the point where they love to trick people using the fact that they're identical to each other. They even have the same hairstyle, the only way to tell them apart is by the way they part their hair, and even then it's a fifty fifty shot that you're going to guess which one's the right twin. They'll often switch places or react to the other's name. They'll even go to the other's class for the day if they feel like it and just take meticulous notes for the other.

    Joe has wanted to be a detective ever since he was a child. He decided that was what he wanted to do most and went for it. He began to delve deep into mystery novels, began to pick the locks in their home, hack their own computers, and even pick pocket small things from his family, returning most of it of course, knowing that even though he loved golden age mysteries where the detective uses the clues at his disposal, without the help of any form of technology. He knew in the modern age there were emails and security feeds, and if he decided to be a private detective, he'd have to do things the shady way, such as breaking in and hacking their computers to gain invaluable information. Though he one day dreams of getting into a golden age mystery situation where he could be the detective.

    Since he was a teenager he dragged his brother around on small investigations that primarily involved lost objects or animals, sometimes he'd luck out and stumble on an actual crime, like a theft. He was rather good, connecting every event together to ultimately form the truth. Meaning he'd either find the culprit and/or the missing object or animal.
    Occupation: Detective/college student
    Hobbies: He enjoys reading, especially mystery novels. He likes to go through old unsolved cases and create theories for them. He plays videogames, usually with his brother. He practices kendo with Leon. They loved swords especially the katana, so they took to it quickly. He doesn't let many people know, but he sometimes sings, only when he's alone though, Leon caught him by accident once.
    Skills: Lock picking, hacking, pick pocketing, speed reading and kendo.

    Name: Leon Knox
    Age: 18
    Appearance: Same physical appearance as Joe.
    Bio: Joe's twin brother, he's normally with Joe, they're practically inseparable, whenever they're not in school, they're normally hanging out together. Leon enjoyed the aspects of helping his brother when they investigated. He was the Watson to his Sherlock. He'd help by keeping an eye out while his brother did less than legal things, create distractions, and help him go over any files that he brought home with him and needed the reading to be split up. But he felt he could help in other aspects, like ensuring that any criminal taken to court would be punished for their crimes.

    So, he began to delve into law and the court system. He'd attend trials and watch the proceedings. He'd spend the nights pouring through historic cases and through books on law. When he'd exhaust them he'd go onto local cases, both new and old. He'd love to be behind the prosecution's stand one day, tearing apart a witness's statement until the truth was revealed.
    Occupation: College student/assistant
    Hobbies: He plays videogames with his brother. Enjoys reading. He plays violin on occasion. He also enjoys practicing kendo with Joe.
    Skills: Kendo, speed reading, violin playing.

    Jess, rejoice cuz ur char is no longer the only female here! And that i needed an excuse to implement drawings into an rp lol

    Name:
    Kylee Anne Meyers (Has the nickname "Kix" around the guys but hates it.)
    Age: 21
    Appearance: Tall, slim. She's been told to model by both her family and friends. Her long hair is a light golden brown, and her large eyes are close to dark chocolate in color. Seems to have little sense of style in her clothing choices, and her hair is in constant disarray. Always has a pencil and eraser on her person.

    Bio: Kylee was born into a family that would seem perfectly normal by American standards. Her mother was a stay-at-home mom, and her father worked in construction. But as soon as she could hold a pencil, she was always drawing. The girl could create creatures large and small, weird, terrifying, and cute (although she prefers the scary ones for some reason) and over time her skills even developed to drawing humans.

    She did well in school, albeit struggling with the fact that her teachers would always complain of her daydreaming during lectures, but it was something she could never quite grow out of. Eventually, she would graduate, and her parents decided she should go to college and further develop her skills for the market. Now, she takes drawing classes at the University, wanting nothing more than to lose herself in her own world.

    Occupation: None. Hasn't gotten a job yet and all of her fees are paid for through scholarships.
    Hobbies: Drawing, Reading, Daydreaming.
    Skills: Graphite drawing, digital, painting, charcoal, pretty much any method of art, and telling stories about her creatures.

    Working on it: and as to how the triangle happened.... one guy pretty much beat the other to it and asked me out first (i met both at a state competition, and one made it to nationals, along with me). What's ironic is that i can easilly see myself with either one of them. One's an outdoorsy type that lives on a dairy, and the other, who i'm currently dating, is in college for computer security. I THINK i've pretty much gotten the message across to the other guy that I am not about to do anything stupid, so we're in that awkward friend stage thing, but he still seems to try and find ways to mess with me!

    Stupid males and their irresistible goofy behaviors... and it doesnt help that i was only teased and harrassedby guys until i met those two, who both pretty much can't seem to believe im actually real and not some ghost that will vanish in an instant.

    Seriously, I asked them. So now i have an attraction complex. BAH

    and now i also found out just yesterday that the other guy would have committed suicide if i hadn't started talking to him again! long story short some serious shit happened in his life and i was one big ass positive light, so now im scared to leave him alone.

    Another problem: they both live in the same town and i live an hour away. They get along in a way, but i always get this feeling that territorialness is going to best the both of them. It's happened before and one got a concussion out of it. (that happened at state when we were all at the pool hanging out. I was with my classmates and didnt really know what to think of them at the time -they were wrestling. Nor did i realize that they were actually fighting over me: im a ditz. I ended up helping the one guy who is now my "friend" back to his room, and oh do i wish i hadn't put myself in that situation. he had a silver tongue to boot but i stole his phone and called his parents, so that shut him up quickly. lucky his mom is a nurse so i was able to treat him properly and keep him awake until his buddies got back and helped me out so i could leave.)

    Guys are stupid. No offense to you boys here, but guys are. And i am way too caring so i end up getting in dumb situations like this.
