Plot:

It has been 15 years since the defeat of the insidious organization known as the Crimson Order, and the death or imprisonment of many of those associated with the organization. Grimsborough is (slightly more) peaceful now than it was before, with murders only every other week instead of every other day as previously observed. Gang violence has dropped to an all-time low in the Industrial Area, following the establishment of a peace treaty between the Vipers and Skulls gangs. The inhabitants of the Maple Heights and Financial Center districts have returned their focus to golf-playing and making money respectively. The Historical Center's inhabitants have returned to training dogs in order to participate in the annual Dog Pageant, and the students at Grimsborough University or one of the other schools in the area have gone back to focusing on their education. However, something is stirring in the shadows of Grimsborough, and the city might not always be as peaceful as it is now...

General Notes:

So, this is (as you may have already guessed) an RP based on the iOS/Facebook game Criminal Case. You don't have to have played the game to be able to understand and take part in this RP, though some knowledge of the game is definitely recommended (and assumed).
Links to pages with information on the various aspects of the world in which the game takes place will be added to the fourth post as they become relevant, along with a link to the OOC Thread.

Rules:

1 - Stick with Grimsborough for now, though we might bring in Pacific Bay later if everything goes well.
2 - As many characters as you can handle, though please try to keep to a reasonable amount.
3 - All RP forum rules apply.
4 - No superpowers/psychic powers whatsoever.
5 - So that I know you read the rules properly, please put
[size=85]And so it begins...[/size]
at the end of your post after your characters (but leave out the code tags). I will not accept your characters unless you do.
6 - Remember to PM me if you have any questions.
7 - Have fun.

Character details:


Name - What does your character call himself/herself? Also, include any nicknames your character might have.
Gender - If you don't know what to put for this by now, get help. Seriously.
Age - Preferably between 19 and 29, but anywhere up to mid thirties (35-36) is fine.
Appearance - How does your character appear? A detailed description is preferred, though pictures are fine too if your character's appearance is hard to describe.
Personality - How does your character act? I'm hoping for at least two sentences worth of descriptive stuff here. Please don't let me down.
Role - What does your character do for a living?
District - Which of the city's districts does your character come from/live in?
Relationships - Tell us about your character's friends, family, known associates, hell, even their pet chicken if they have one.
Weapon - Is your character armed? If so, how?
Strengths - Up to three things your character does well.
Weaknesses - Up to three things your character does not do well.
Background - What did your character do in their past? Where/how did they grow up? Again, be descriptive!
Other - Anything I may have missed that you think we ought to know about your character?

My first character:
Name - Alexander Bryan. Goes by Al, Alex, or Xander (the latter only by his closest friends).
Gender - Male
Age - 27
Appearance - Alexander is tall and slender, though incredibly athletic, with closely-cropped brownish-black hair, a couple of strands of which hang into his hazel eyes. A long, jagged, scar, a reminder of a stab wound he received his first year as a detective, winds down his right arm, starting just below his shoulder and ending just above his elbow, though it doesn't appear to visibly hamper his ability to act. Has a habit of wearing long-sleeved black or brown shirts under combat jackets, with long black or blue pants and sensible shoes. His GBPD badge is usually either hung around his neck or clipped to the inside of his jacket, and his service weapon, a chrome-plated Glock 19 9mm handgun, is holstered on his belt next to his handcuffs.
Personality - Usually calm and easy-going, and a genuinely good person, though is quick to anger if his family or friends are threatened or if someone tries to get away with breaking the law right in front of him. Despite his easy-going nature, he takes a long time to warm up to people, presumably as a side effect of everything he sees in his job, though once someone earns his respect it is generally easy to keep.
Role - GBPD (Grimsborough Police Department) Senior Homicide Detective.
District - Historical Center, originally from Maple Heights.
Relationships - Christina Bryan (mother), Liam Bryan (father, deceased), Carla Stevens (fraternal twin sister), Aaron Stevens (brother-in-law (married to Carla), best male friend and best friend since high school), Sophie Stevens (niece, 3-year old daughter of Carla and Aaron), Maria Ford (ex-girlfriend), Serena Coulson (best female friend, possible love interest), Mike Ross (flatmate), Grace Harris (colleague, married to Luke Harris, though still goes by her maiden name of Delaney at work), Luke Harris (friend, Grace's husband), Nathan Pandt (colleague), Alex Turner (colleague), Catherine King-Turner (colleague, married to Alex Turner), Kiera (A King Charles Spaniel police dog he is currently training), Roy Logan (rival).
Weapon - His service weapon, a police-issue chrome-plated Glock 19 9mm handgun registered to him.
Strengths - Alexander is a gifted crime scene investigator and analyst, a highly-skilled marksman, and a skilled swimmer and free-diver.
Weaknesses - The scar on his upper right arm can very rarely affect his performance. He gets easily distracted by logic problems. He has trouble finding a partner that he can trust to have his back for more than one case.
Background - Born and raised in the wealthy Maple Heights district of Grimsborough, the first few years of Alexander's life were reasonably peaceful and unasumming. His family moved to the University District when Alex and Carla were five years old, so that the siblings could be closer to school, though his parents later moved back to Maple Heights when Alex and his sister were in their first year at Grimsborough University. A couple of years later, both siblings graduated at the top of their respective classes, Alex having chosen to pursue a Criminal Justice major while Carla elected to take a Tourism and Hospitality course. Following the end of the school year, and the events which led Alex to learn of his father's death to a drunk driver, both he and his sister moved to the Historical Center, where he joined the GBPD and she became a famous travel writer, eventually marrying Aaron Stevens, an old friend of theirs who had also moved to the Historical Center. Sophie Stevens, Carla's daughter with Aaron, was born just three weeks before Alex's promotion to Homicide Detective.
Other - Hates talking about his personal life, especially his father's death, and any attempt to bring it up in conversation is generally met with a cold silence. Unless he is asked about his niece.

And my other character
Name - Roy Logan
Gender - Male
Age - 28
Appearance - Tall and muscular-looking, with golden skin, icy blue eyes, and raven-black hair. Usually wears a long black jacket over a white t-shirt with a red or blue tie, black pants, and a pair of black slip-on lab shoes.
Personality - Arrogant and standoffish, never fails to use his money to try to make things go exactly the way that he wants them to go. Not afraid to use his family's wealth or name to get his way. However, he does have a soft spot when it comes to his wife and their daughters, as well as his parents and his family in general.
Role - Defence lawyer specializing in defending suspects in many of the Homicide cases that Alex works on.
District - Maple Heights.
Relationships - Alice Logan (wife), Caroline 'Carrie' Logan (oldest daughter, 7 years old), Isabella 'Izzy' Logan (younger daughter, 3 months old), Tobias Logan (father), Stephanie Logan (mother), Rachel Logan (younger sister), Meredith 'Mere' Pine (ex-girlfriend), Tom Sheldon (best friend since high school), Alexander Bryan (rival), Sammy (pet Collie).
Weapon - He possesses a small pocketknife which he usually keeps folded inside his jacket pocket and purely uses for self-defense
Strengths - Determined, persistent, charismatic.
Weaknesses - Inability to accept defeat, holds grudges for a long time, inability to refuse a challenge.
Background - Born and raised in Maple Heights, Roy grew up relatively easily and sheltered, hardly ever wanting for anything. Attending both Grimsborough High School and Grimsborough University in his teen years, he graduated almost at the top of his class in Criminal Justice (only narrowly losing to Alexander Bryan), and became a lawyer soon after, specializing in defending the murderers in various murder cases Alex works.
Other - Uses hand creams, and, having grown up in Maple Heights, has an incredible knowledge of sports.

And so it begins...

Name - Hollie Spencer
Gender - Female
Age - 23
Appearance - Image
Personality - Very spunky and optimistic, with a real talent for turning almost any situation into a positive one. She very rarely finds herself upset. However, if something were terrible enough to get her down, it takes her a very long time to recover. She can be very talkative, almost annoyingly so, and she enjoys making new friends.
Role - GBPD Digital Forensics
District - University district.
Relationships - Mother (Faith Spencer), Father (Dominic Spencer), Aunt (Amy Wyatt), Cousin (Ruby Wyatt)
Weapon - n/a
Strengths - Brilliantly analytical, very patient, adapts well to new situations
Weaknesses - Bad at reading people, overly-dramatic, cannot handle more than one or two tasks at a time
Background - She grew up in Great Britain with her parents, staying very close to her mother's side of the family. She spent a lot of time with her cousin Ruby, and the two often acted like sisters. She never remembers her aunt being married, but one of her earliest memories is of Aunt Amy coming to stay with them for a week or two.
Around the time when Hollie was a junior in high school, her father informed the family that he was being transferred to his company's American branch. The family packed up everything and soon found themselves in an upscale, American neighborhood where Hollie didn't know anyone. She made sure to keep in touch with Ruby, but for the most part, she was determined to make some new friends here. She had no problem adapting to her new life.
She attended Grimsborough University for college and fell in love with the University district, finding an apartment nearby after she graduated. She soon found a job with the GBPD in their forensics lab, training with their current head of Digital Forensics. She's been working with the GBPD for about two years now.
Other -Still speaks with a very heavy English accent.

And so it begins...

Name - Tyler Anthon
Gender - Male
Age - 27
Appearance - Mismatched clothes that look like they'd been found in either thrift stores or dumpsters. Unkempt, mid-length black hair, thin. Dark eyes. Looks nearly unhealthy.
Personality - He acts civilized around people he doesn't know, as if he's waiting for them to go away. Unwilling to do anything for anyone if he doesn't get anything from it. Perfectly willing to kill someone if he needs to--or wants to. Observes everything he can. Gets fairly rude when people start to annoy him or if he's intoxicated. Belligerent when drunk.
Role - Drug Dealer
District - Industrial
Relationships - A circle of four friends that he doesn't particularly know the names of. (Known by Mac, Sleezy, Bones, and Li'l Will--They call him Trigger) Occasionally owned by a stray cat he affectionately named Pissball.
Weapon - A glock that he stockpiles ammo for, but rarely uses, two pocket knives.
Strengths - Good at lying, runs fast, can hold his own in a fight
Weaknesses - Addicted to narcotics, Shaky loyalty, Short tempered
Background - Growing up, he didn't really know his mother and lived with his father for awhile, before a workplace accident ended up leaving his father in the hospital in a coma when he was five. Afterward, he lived with his mother for a bit, but she barely wanted anything to do with him, and after school would spend the days scavenging the city for food. He started taking heroin and eventually dropped out of school at sixteen. He's gone through a string of relationships, none of which lasted very long, and has lost contact completely with his family, going as far as to burn down his mother's home, unsure of whether or not she survived.
He tends to avoid law enforcement, but being on the seedy side of town nets him a good deal of information--that he's only willing to trade if the officers are willing to overlook his possession of controlled substances that he almost always gets in trouble for.

Screw the rules I have drugs!

"What?"
Tyler scowled at the woman who had been attempting to talk to him for what seemed like the past fifteen minutes. She was proselytizing about Jesus or something, but Tyler had tuned her out a bit ago.
"You should really consider repenting, the Lord--"
"--doesn't want my type, you just said so yourself. He made me this way, he can deal with it." Tyler snapped back. If it wasn't broad daylight, he'd choke the *****.
He had gotten a cup of water from a sandwich shop, with mixed hostility, pity, and indifference from the staff. That he didn't care about. But this lady was beginning to annoy him.
Eventually, she ended up wandering away. Good riddance.
And how annoying. He decided he'd remember her face, if he had the urge to track her down and rob her house.
He got another cup of water, and one of the cooks decided to offer him a sandwich that they accidentally made. He shrugged and took it.
A free meal was a free meal after all.
