Augmentations: She doesn't currently have any augmentations, aside from her glasses which, as well as help her see clearly, are heavily augged out with high-tech equipment for her job.

Current Address: 110/208 Cheongpa Street, District 5
Occupation: Forensic Investigator, Department of Technological Resources, N.S.P.A.
Pre-N.S.P.A. Biography: Sumin grew up in a strict, middle-class Korean household in Suwon, District 8, to a successful military father and her mother, a now-retired nurse. She has one sibling, a younger sister named Yu Na Park, whom she did not get along with very well growing up, but has since become her best friend in adulthood. Her family taught them traditional moral values which has sometimes been hard to break out of as a young adult.
After Sumin completed high school she attended the Neo-Seoul University for four years until obtaining a Bachelor's Degree in Forensic Science. It was there she met her first and only girlfriend, Erika, who at the time was also studying Forensic Science. They dated for almost 5 years until Erika broke up with Sumin and left to go back home to Neo-Tokyo. After University, Su had applied for the N.S.P.D's National Internship and was successful, working an entire year in the D.T.R until she was hired as a full time Forensic Investigator. Sumin now lives with her sister in Yanju.
Personality profile:As her sister Yuna says, 'Su is a typical Virgo'. Sumin is very organized and likes to keep her life sorted as best she can. She typically has a 'no nonsense' type attitude especially when she is working, which may sometimes come across as cold and unfriendly, but Su cares very deeply for her family and close friends to the point where it sometimes hurts her. She upholds typical Korean values and has a hard time speaking her mind to any sort of superior or authority.

Unique Skills/Abilities: Sumin excelled in University, earning one of the highest marks in the country. She is very smart and perceptive without needing to try.

So begins...

District 5


You have 5 unread messages from Yuna.

A low hum of vibration against wood broke silence, followed by an eclectic sounding message tone. Teal light illuminated the darkness for a moment.

You have 6 unread messages from Yuna.

After less than a minute a shrill call tone cut through the peace. Muffled groans emitted from the darkness.

You have 7 unread messages and 1 missed call from Yuna.

Silence. A deep sigh, followed by rustling of sheets gave way to heavy breathing once more. The phone rang again.

“Oh fucking - ”

A hand slammed down on the glassy surface of the disturbance and brought it to the pile of blankets, illuminated slightly by the city lights outside. Within the blankets a groggy voice answered, “Yuna, you're the worst sister in the world."

“Suuu - “ a whine from the other end began, barely audible from the music and voices heard alongside it, “Su, come pick me up? Please?” a sob, “Please. I need you to take me home.”

“Yuna I have work in - ” Sumin pressed her eyes to the glass of her phone, blurry eyes reading the time with a groan, “I have to get up for work in 3 hours. Get your dumb ass in a taxi or – god, just get a taxi.”

The distressed voice on the other end of the line broke into sobs, muttering something inaudible through the tears and the background noise.

“For – what?! What did you say?”

“I...I said...” Yuna hiccuped, her voice louder this time, “I have no money. Dae took it all. He broke up with me, Su. Please come pick me up. I want to go home. Please."

A sigh escaped Sumin's lips. Her hand felt for a furry lump beside her atop of the sheets, the attention met with a succession of gentle purring. A wave of chills swept over her exposed arm.

“Su? Su are you there? I'm sorry," she waited for response, the background noise of music and people taking over the conversation until Yuna spoke again, "Please answer me!”

“Where are you?”

District 2

The neon city lights reflected off the widows of a navy Hyandai 2110 cruising slowly along the streets of Gangnam, the district of Neo Seoul that never seemed to sleep. Even at 3AM there was enough traffic to cause a headache. People swarmed in groups, most drunk, others working or doing late night shopping, some unable to sleep and walking the city streets looking for purpose. Faint music blared from almost every bar, shop and nightclub she drove past, creating an unmistakable soundtrack for night life within the city of Neo Seoul. Advertisements broke through the music and commotion, men and women posing provocatively to sell technology or fashion. Sumin lay her head against her hand, elbow propped up against the windowsill whilst her other gripped the steering wheel. The heater blared loudly.

“Next up on the Hottest New 100 is Sail Away by Niniko, a rising star of the Neo Seoul music scene and one of my growing favourites. Stay tuned for popular boy band ERA with their new single I Want To. This is Late Night Seoul FM.”

Brassy instruments led into a melodic song that took Su's mind off the slow traffic and the intense scenery invading her red-rimmed eyes. She glanced to the dash of her car, displaying a GPS to her destination, trying desperately to ignore the clock flashing 3:38AM. If she was lucky she would get Yuna home and catch up on some much needed sleep before work. Unlikely.

Her phone buzzed on the dash of her car, displaying another missed call from her drunk sister. She refused to answer, used to this by now, and kept driving. Beside her another car was cut off, following a succession of angry honking and sudden braking. Sumin sighed irritably and pulled her car into the right lane, ready to take a right turn into a brightly lit street full of bars and nightclubs.

"Destination on the left in 50 meters. The Element.

Sumin found a parking space and slammed the door. She ambled to the entrance of the bar, wearing only sleep pants and a large jumper. If this were any other time she would care about her sleep deprived appearance, but the patrons of the nightclubs around here were too drunk to notice anyway. A man threw up the contents of his stomach in the sidewalk not far away. Su flicked her ID to the bodyguard robot to scan and pushed her way into the dimly lit club, it's bass-heavy music and neon lights giving off an otherworldly atmosphere. She spotted her sister fighting with Daejung, her now ex-boyfriend.

" - never in love with you, you fucking maniac!"

Yuna lifted her arm drunkenly, ready to scream at the man, but Su promptly grabbed it and pulled her away. Sumin turned and flipped off Daejung, "Fuck you."

**

The cool air outside winded Su, standing outside the entrance of the bar with her mess of a sister in tow. She glanced at Yuna pityingly, "No wonder you have no money. Drinking in Gangnam, do you want to go broke?!"

Yuna shot her a venomous glare as the two women walked to the car, "I told you, Daejung stole it."

Silence overcame them as they walked along the sidewalk, distant thrumming of music and chattering civilians filling the winter air. Yuna rubbed at the smeared makeup on her red, blotchy cheeks, swinging her heels in her other hand rhythmically. Blue neon lights illuminated the soft puffs of fog that formed every time they took a breath.

"Do you miss her?" Yuna eventually muttered. Her thoughts seemed to be someplace different.

"Who?"

"Erika."

Su didn't answer. They both knew, anyway.

District 1


"Yeesh, you look like shit," a voice called from behind a desk. Sumin dumped her coat and scarf on her adjacent desk, downing the takeaway coffee in her other hand, "You're also late."

"Thanks," she said, turning to face one of her coworkers who worked in forensic's alongside her, "Has anyone noticed?"

"You're lucky. Not this morning, everyone's still focused on the Hae-Won case. You have a few letters, one seems kind of important. I was given it directly to hand it to you," her co-worker Jae grinned at her, almost cruelly, "Looks like a summon."

Sumin smiled stiffly, her insides going cold. She grabbed the white envelope, very aware that Jae was watching her every reaction. Su slowly opened the envelope. The last thing she needed was a summon. God, what had she done? Today was the first day she had been late in weeks, she had completed all of her work to standard - maybe she had said something inappropriate? Perhaps she had made a vital mistake in a recent case? Her hands threatened to tremble but she suppressed it, not wanting to give her coworker the satisfaction.

Pulling the letter out, she began to read with a frown. Her eyes glanced up after a moment, to Jae, a look of pure, confused awe on her face, "Who did you say gave you this letter?"

"I work here," Su-min replied as she entered room 10, awkwardly standing there and staring at Kardos, "Down in - in forensics."

She looked tired - stressed - holding her holopad that was constantly lighting up with emails being sent to her inbox. Updates, records, appointments, meetings being made. Conversations between Patrol and Forensics shot through the hypernet. Her department was in a state of disarray at the moment and had been for a few days since the murders in Gasan had started up. Things were beginning to settle now since they had caught the gang responsible, but there was a number of legal issues making the case complicated and getting as many officers involved as possible. Including Su-min.

The G.H.S.T Officer sitting there surprised her. It wasn't often her department dealt with anyone above D.T.R, and if they did it was to clean up G.H.S.T's frequent messes. She was getting an uneasy feeling, but bowed curtly to Laszlo, "Investigator Park, Su Min. I'm here for a...a meeting?"

"Kardos, Laszlo," Kardos said, raising his eyebrows and giving her wide-eyes for emphasis. He gave a toothy smile, the tops of his gums showing over his small toothed mouth. "I am, uh G.H.S.T., Lieutenant but- uh," There was a glint in the man's eyes as he leaned back in his chair. "I am on special assignment." Kardos raised his eyebrows again and gave a slow nod to Park, as if that was supposed to mean something.

Laszlo gave an exaggerated shrug of a facial expression. There was something about him- a certain charisma, as if the man was more comfortable expressing himself through looks than words. "The Commissioner, she is on the way," Laszlo replied. "At some point, I hope. It's been thirty minutes of vaiting?" Laszlo shook his head, pointing to a fictional watch.

"As for me, I am not here for de same reason as you..."

Su-min frowned and looked at the clock on the corner screen of her augmented glasses. She was on time.

"If I may ask, why are you here?" Su moved a chair and sat, placing her bag on the floor beside her and her holopad on the table, "I don't even know why I'm here, to be honest with you."

"Let me ask, Su-min Park-" Laszlo leaned in, propping his elbows on his knees, and his head up on his palms. "Who polices de police?"

Laszlo smiled at her, for an overly long amount of time, before mouthing an almost silent: "Me." Laszlo suddenly shot up straight backed, giving a shrug. "Maybe. I mean I do not know. It is all an experiment, the entire ding right now. I am here to... help it. The last time it did not go so vell." Laszlo let out a fake laugh, glaring at Park as if she would understand...

Park did not understand. She stared at him blankly.

"It? You mean D.U.S.K?" Su-min frowned only slightly, "I don't know what that - this, is."

"It's not like a real big secret or nothin'," Amen replied, strolling through the door. "They don't really talk about it, but if you know where to look you can find out," he turned to glance at Su-min and introduced himself, "Amen Rodrigo da Silva," he stated with a nod, not waiting for Su-Min to introduce herself before he wandered around towards the table taking a seat in an empty swivel chair while kicking his feet up on another. "Why they restarted it, is anyone's guess..." he trailed off, pulling his cap down over his face, covering his eyes as he waited for this meeting to get underway.

Su-min cocked at eyebrow at Amen, meeting his rather rude introduction with no introduction of her own, "Ive been busy. All Ive been able to find is the basic summary - a department for 'special' cases. That doesn't really tell me anything."

"Right..." Su-min cleared her throat, waiting for some sort of further commentary. There was none. She quickly turned to her holopad and began answering the succession of emails as an excuse to escape this very awkward conversation.

"So," Laszlo began, his eyes tracing Amen's N.S.P.A. uniform. "You are a beat cop?" He smiled at the man. Laszlo cracked his neck before swerving it in Park's direction. "And you are a D.T.R. analyst?" Laszlo squinted at the two. "Be careful, you know. If der is a hierarchy here... you two are low on it."

Suddenly the door opened, a middle-aged korean man with a bent hat walking in, keycard in hand. "Jong, Meon," He introduced briskly, folding his arms as he stepped in. "I'm looking for Commissioner Dikshil?"

"Park, Su-min," Su offered, looking up to Meon Jong and feeling overwhelmingly grateful to him that he had entered at that very moment. He seemed normal enough, "The Commissioner isn't here yet."

Jong glared at Amen, before turning to Laszlo, who sat upright on his swivel chair like an eager dog. "Kardos, Laszlo- I am sorry, what department are you from?"

Meon Jong squinted at the trio before him, unimpressed, and reached into his coat. In a swift movement he pulled out a card and placed it on the table. "Meon Jong, private eye," He breathed, sliding the plastic card across the table. Laszlo stared the card down before shifting his blue gaze up at Jong. "Not wid the N.S.P.A.?"

"Apparently not," Jong replied, not sitting. Laszlo glanced at Amen and Park, as if letting them in on some funny joke, before clasping his hands together at Jong. "Well- hierarchy changed," Laszlo commented before leaning back in his chair again. "If the Commissioner is bringing in outsiders I am afraid it does not look good. Vhatever this meeting is it is an experiment. And if you are vhat she is choosing an expendable experiment." Laszlo shrugged. "I am a friend to all who serve the law... and I dink you should valk into this carefully."

Jong turned to the other two in the room. "Who is this asshole?" He asked after a moment.

"He's, ah..." Su-min looked at Laszlo, "He's a G.H.S.T officer. Here to oversee all of this...uh, D.U.S.K. That's all I know."

She glanced over to Laszlo, "You talk as if we have a choice in this. What we received was a summon - not a request. If we don't report to a summon we get penalized or..." a pause, Su looked over to Meon for a moment, "In Mr. Jong's case, in trouble with N.S.P.A. You didn't receive a summon, Officer Kardos?"

Laszlo stared at Su-min. "No," He replied. "I received a promotion."

With a swallow Jong sat, pulling out his phone to check the time. He was on point. To what, he wasn't quite sure. D.U.S.K. The division left to do what the rest of the police couldn't. The division that died. If Dikshil wanted to reform the guard, she needed more than this...

James leaned back in his chair, his gaze on a small paper crane that sat on his desk. He made one every year on his birthday. It wasn't very good, even if the design was easy enough. James had never taken up paper folding, except once a year.

He could still see the paper crane his son had given him on his birthday twenty four years ago. That one had been better than this one, Chung-Hee had spent his entire morning folding it, making it perfect. He had the biggest smile on his face when James had come home, proudly presenting his birthday gift with both hands out stretched. It was the last birthday gift James ever got from his son. He had made twenty three more since then, none of them were as perfect as the first one had been.

Looking at his watch he slid the crane into a small square box and tucked it away in his pocket, he would bring it to the apartment later. Filing away the last of his reports on the computer he turned the monitor off and slid the chair neatly under the desk.

This meeting had at least given him time to finish some outstanding office work he thought. He turned toward the elevator, passing Lee's desk on the way. "Off to meet with the commissioner Haraboji?" the man asked without looking up from his computer. "Yes, don't let the children get into trouble." James replied with a smile. Lee looked up, winked, and returned to his work. James knew the man had quite the backlog of reports to file, he'd be at that desk most of the shift.

The elevator whisked him upwards to the fortieth floor. James couldn't recall ever actually visiting this particular floor, not that it was a surprise, there were a number of floors he'd never been on. As the door opened to the reception area.

"Captain Kyo." the man at the desk acknowledged him, a key card slid across the desk, "room ten." James picked up the card curiously, wondering why they wouldn't simply update his existing credentials for access. "Thank you." he nodded slightly and continued toward the designated room.

Four people were already at the table, the commissioner not among them. He didn't recognize three of them, two of which were NSPA employees, he did recognize lieutenant Kardos however, who was saying something about a promotion as James entered the room.

"Lieutenant." he nodded towards the man, then looking at the others "Captain James Kyo." he introduced himself. "So this is the commissioners new D.U.S.K."

Laszlo's smile disappeared as into the room James Kyo entered, the strange but affable foreigner's face turning to steel. "You're here?" Laszlo called, Meon noticing the man's changed demeanor to the new arrival. "...Interesting, interesting choices," The man mumbled.

Meon raised an eyebrow at the two. A history. The police were a infected nest of traitors all wanting and waiting to stab each other in the heart, that was a statement he could make with zero hyperbole. "Jong, Meon- private eye," Meon introduced with a casual bow of his hatted head.

Another G.H.S.T officer and a Captain at that. The uneasiness increased.

"Investigator Park, Su-min," she offered with a polite nod to James, "So far. I think there are more on their way."

"Agent," A voice called from the elevator a moment later. Form beside Taku's Commissioner DIkshil emerged, flowing black robes, almost trench-coat, almost fashion. In the N.S.P.A. it was hard to tell. Dikshil marched forward, handing Taku a keycard as she walked and talked. "Taku this is an experiment, a very dangerous experiment, and you know why it has to be," Dikshil muttered as she marched passed the reception, into the lounge of the fortieth floor. "I know you think of this as a demotion," Dikshil responded, turning to Taku as they approached the door. "But play your cards right... and D.U.S.K. may be something we've never before seen." Dikshil blinked at the Japanese man. He'd been a top agent when she was Director of S.I.L.O., and despite his heritage being a troubling subject, they'd grown close in their times with the department. "It could be justice. Real justice." Dikshil placed a brown hand on Taku's shoulder before turning to the room, ready to enter.

---

"Well, all present but one, better than I expected," A commanding voice called into the room. Jong glanced up to see Commissioner Dikshil enter, the rich but worn Indian face he'd seen on the news so many times. Behind her a japanese man, black outfitted. Maybe a lawyer?

"Commissioner," Laszlo stuttered, raising suddenly.

"At ease, Lieutenant," Dikshil dismissed as she moved to the end of the table. From her side she pulled out several holopads and lay them across the table. "Signatures," Dikshil commanded. "For the information you are about to receive will not leave this room."

Amen slowly slid his feet off of the other chair, scooting up to the table to grab one of the holopads. "Before I sign, can I ask what kinda information is so secretive that we need to keep our mouths shut about it?"
