The authorities here are hopeless. You want justice? You've got to go out and get it yourself. Or, if that's not an option, come talk to us. Who are we? We are Black Cat. We are vigilantes for hire.

So, you need help? Somebody hurt you? A family member? Somebody stole your car or vandalised your house? Good luck getting the cops to help. They're ridiculously corrupt, and unless you're prepared to pay a hefty bribe to the right person, you can say goodbye to getting any form of help. They'll say that they're investigating your case, but in reality, your case will get moved to the bottom of a very large pile, one that will probably never be cleared.

What, you're not happy with that? You want real, serious help? Well, you're better off looking to the streets in that case. If you can find the right people, they'll do a better job of dealing with the person who hurt you than the police ever could, no questions asked. Not for free, obviously. But the fee isn't half as much as it would be to bribe the police, and, best of all, you're not paying the police.

That said, you'd better be okay with vigilante justice. We're not going to just sit down and have a long, heartfelt chat with the perpetrator. You can either tell us what you want done, or simply tell us the crime, and we'll choose a punishment we deem fitting. The more dangerous it is, the more it'll cost you. Naturally enough.

You don't like vigilante justice? Fine by us. But let it be said, we're the only people who get things done around here. We're the only ones who cause anything to be done. The cops don't give a damn about that woman murdered two weeks ago, but they sure as hell love trying to catch us. We're a threat to them. Well, more often, we're a threat to the people that pay them, and they can't have that, now, can they?

Who are we? Most don't know our name. Most don't want to know our name. They just want the deal over and done with as fast as possible. We're completely anonymous, and that's the way we all like it. Names are powerful. But we can give you one name.


We are Black Cat. Vigilantes for hire.





For those unsure, this will be equal parts character and plot driven. It centers around the members of Black Cat and the various jobs they are given. Every member has their own reason for joining Black Cat. These reasons should be wide-ranging and unique, but don't have to be dramatic.

No godmodding. All characters are human.
Keep the drama to the IC. If you have a problem with another member, try and sort it out over PM, and if that isn't working, I will act as a mediator.
There will be adult themes in this roleplay. If there is something that you're not comfortable with, please let me know. I don't want anybody leaving or being made uncomfortable when it could be avoided. It will remain just between you and me. I will not use names when talking to other members about it.
Similarly, if I ask you to change something because another member is uncomfortable, please respect that. Password #1 is a gif (500px width, 300px height max) of your character/face claim.
If you have to leave, please just message me, and I'll work out a way for your character to leave.
If you don't post for two weeks and don't give me some kind of reason, I'll assume you have left and will proceed as such.
Commitment would be nice.
Reservations to be posted in the OOC.
Relationships? Yes please. More drama! But keep it clean here, and normal RPG rules apply. Password #2 is their codename.
Violence is expected, but just don't get too graphic.
Enjoy!
To show you've read these rules, please include both passwords and your character's face claim in your reservation. Real FCs only, please.

Cenna

Image

Cenna slipped into Kits car with a sheepish smile. She did what she had to, and she was she was not exactly embarrassed, but she sure did not like showing off her body. The car ride was quiet with the exception of the purr of the engine, and the revving of the bike at their side. She heard something about her clothes and felt a moment of materialistic reprieve. She didn’t have spare money to buy new shoes…and she really liked her shoes.

Cenna sighed in relief when the car pulled to a stop in front of her apartment per her request. She suddenly did not feel like being social. She had had enough of being exposed physically and emotionally.

“Thanks for the ride Kit” She said as she slid out of the car quietly.

It took her only seconds to make it from the street to her flat. She slipped into her room with a sigh of relief and dropped onto her bed. She was damn tired of…well… being tired.

Cenna sighed as she realized she still had the flash-drive under her breast in her bra. She had things to do and people to ruin. Her job wasn’t done. Cenna took the flash-drive, her brass knuckles, and her lock picking kit out of her bra then took it off. She riffled through her drawers and found a pair of striped red and white boxers and a red tank before taking her lap-top out to the living room. She poured herself a glass of honey crisp whiskey on ice before sprawling out on the couch to investigate her new findings.

22:00


Tyler slumped down at his desk, firing up the computer. None of his screens were particularly fancy, but that was all part of the plan. People generally saw an older screen and thought 'old computer'. What was inside and plugged into the system was an entirely different matter. While he had never actually gone after the government, from fear of attracting attention and putting the other guys in danger, between what he had and what Lucas had, he was pretty sure they could do some serious damage. But that was a task for another day. Today he was charged with getting dirt on a Mr. Michael Hamilton.

Tyler got up and grabbed a can of soda from the fridge. He shucked off his jacket and sat down as the screens flickered to life. First place to begin: social media. People left so much information on there it was obscene. A quick search and he found the man he was looking for. Apparently dirty money attracted pretty faces. Odd how that worked. Tyler rolled his shoulders out. Get a grip, man he thought, We're trying to take him down, not get laid. Tyler shook his head and scoured the profile for anything he could use. A lot of posts seemed to be coming from one of two places. A few clicks and Tyler sat back, letting the programme run itself. All he needed was an IP address. He doubted that they were using any VPNs or anything like that. From what he had gathered as a technician, people tended to only use them for streaming.

A few minutes later, Tyler had two IP addresses. He searched for the source of the first one, finding that it led him to an office in one of the umpteen tower blocks in the city. Well, someone's been slacking off. The second lead to a private address in the suburbs. The homestead of Mr Hamilton, Tyler figured. Time to hack the server. Tyler tapped the code in, the movement of his fingers becoming second nature. Once his was in, Tyler looked through the browsing history, specifically for anything banking related. Social media and bank accounts. Once you had them, you had people in the palm of your hand. Problem was, there were two banking sights in the search history. He sent a message to Lucas.

To Lucas:
Don't suppose you know which bank the company's with. I've got two here and I don't wanna be wasting time.


Tyler sat back and waited for a reply. He didn't want to move forward and waste time if Lucas had extra intel that would save him a hell of a lot of time. While he was waiting for a reply, he tuned into the conversation. "Ty? You up for some too?"

Tyler snapped up in his seat as Melody spoke to him over the mic. Jesus, you need to get a grip. She wasn't even in the room and he was acting like this. So far the conversation had been background noise, just making sure that his friends weren't about to get themselves killed. Drinks, they had been talking about drinks right? "Sure," he answered, certain that his voice was betraying him in some way. "Just, uh... just gimme a sec. Banks and stuff, but I'll be over. I'll let you know when I'm on my way." Tyler ran a hand down his face. Real smooth Uxbridge, real smooth

Melody watched out the window as Kit drove down the street. She stopped at Cenna's apartment and let the girl out who disappeared into the building. Kit and Melody were alone. She waited for her friends to respond to her offer of a drink. It was quiet on the other side of the mic and for a moment, Melody wondered if she had been cut off from HQ. Panic rose up in her chest and she opened her mouth to say something when Ty's voice came through. "Sure. Just, uh... just gimme a sec. Banks and stuff, but I'll be over. I'll let you know when I'm on my way." He said. A bright smile forced itself onto her face as he spoke and she shook her head. Annoyed with herself for being so paranoid, but happy that she was wrong. "No problem, Ty." She replied. "Just text me when you're on your way."
