In a city that's no stranger to crime, a new threat has emerged. And this time, it's targeting the police themselves.

889 readers have visited alibis since partially-stars created it.

Introduction

ImageImageOakhedge, Virginia. Once upon a time, it was a name heard in the news far too frequently for all the wrong reasons. Nearly overrun with gang violence, drugs, and all sorts of dodgy dealings, you only lived there if you had to. Now, it's a shining beacon of hope, of the power of good local politics. A mayor with big ideas and even bigger connections was elected seven years ago, and she'd held office ever since. She's turned the town around. Now, it's a growing town, expanding and growing all the time. A spate of start-up companies have brought good jobs to the area, and an influx of funding for education and the police force helped get kids who would have otherwise turned to gangs for survival into school, into university, into good jobs.

Under the surface, the gang violence still simmers. But now it's brought under control by the local police force. Overhauled under the leadership of the new mayor, the police force is a modern force for a modern town. Many don't even realise that the reason there's police officers on the streets at night is to make sure the violence is kept to a minimum through a visible and formidable presence. They just think it's to help everyone feel safe.

The unsung heroes of the town, the police force has two main teams- the day and night shifts. Originally, they only had the one crime scene team, but it has recently expanded to two thanks to more funding. As far as possible, all testing is done in house by a team of dedicated specialists. It's a well-oiled machine, a perfect balance that keeps the whole town in harmony.

But now that balance is in danger. Members of the day shift have been targeted and killed in their own homes. Gang violence hasn't been totally ruled out, but everyone knows it's unlikely. And somehow, that's more terrifying. Gang violence can be controlled. An unknown factor cannot.

The night shift has been tasked with the investigation, the mayor eager to keep news of this serial killer to a minimum. But now they're on the case, they're all targets. This would be bad enough- if the victims' dirty little secrets didn't have a nasty tendency of coming to the surface in the days following their death. It seems that everyone on the night shift has something to hide, ranging from the smallest of secrets to the earth-shattering, life ruining ones. The stress is already starting to get to them, but they don't have a choice. They have to find out who the killer is... before it's too late.




some quick rules! first things first, a reminder that god-modding is forbidden. god-modding typically means controlling a character without their player's permission. so when in doubt, ask. romance and violence are pretty much a given for a drama-driven rp like this, but keep it within site rules. most importantly, if things get steamy, either fade to black or bring it off site. there will be adult themes within the rp. if you're not comfortable with any of the content, please PM me and we can work around it or i can ask other players to alter as necessary. please keep the drama to the ic. any issues arising among members of the rp should be dealt with over pm. reservations go in the ooc as they're easier to keep track of. real face claims only, please. you have 48 hours to submit a WIP. that WIP can be a blank sheet, i just want something in to know you're still on board. you will then have 5 days after submitting your WIP to finish your character. i will grant extensions as long as you pm me. any further questions or issues, please pm me! i don't bite, promise. when reserving, i'd like your character's face claim, a 500x200 (or similar sized) image of said face claim, your character's role, and their hex colour.

given relationships are a guideline, feel free to interpret as you like. your characters can have relationships and crushes and rivalries that aren't mentioned here, this is just so we have some immediate drama!




Image

Name: | Age: (35-45) | Team Lead | FC: | OPEN

NAME's role means he's in the office most of the day, sorting out paperwork. He doesn't mind his role- but secretly he's itching to get back out into the field, and has a habit of appearing at the crime scenes anyway to help out the investigators. He's a father figure to many of them, but especially {investigator 2} and {analyst 1}. Is the only person sure of {officer 4}'s innocence

Image

Name: | Age: (30-40) | Second in Command and Press Liaison | FC: | OPEN

The public face of the team, NAME would be more than happy to stay in the office doing {team lead}'s paperwork all day. She's got kids who mean the world to her, and while she loves her job, the danger is more present to her than ever. {investigator 2} sleeps on her couch from time to time, while {officer 3} has a tendency to flirt with her.

Image

Name: | Age: (25-35) | Investigator 1 | FC: Matthew Daddario | iCat

He's convinced himself that he's a target. He moved from the day shift less than forty eight hours before the first murder occurred, and two of the victims were friends of his. He's afraid that he's putting the team in danger, but only {analyst 2} and {officer 1} are aware of these fears. He and {officer 2} have an on-again off-again relationship.

Image

Name: | Age: (25-35) | Investigator 2 | FC: | OPEN

She's got more secrets than she can handle. NAME was recently kicked out of her family home and has been couch surfing while trying to find somewhere a little more permanent to live. She frequents the couches and floors of {second in command}, {analyst 2}, and {officer 4}. {team lead} is keeping an eye out for her, but she's too proud to accept the help he offers.

Image

Name: | Age: (22-35) | Analyst 1 | FC: | OPEN

Having had a close brush with the killer himself, NAME has been spending more and more time in the lab and less in his apartment. He's afraid, but {team lead} is the only one who even knows about the incident. {officer 4} has a soft spot for him and frequently cooks him dinner. {officer 3} has been trying to get him figured out for a while, so NAME is determined to keep him at a distance.

Image

Name: | Age: (22-35) | Analyst 2 | FC: | OPEN

As the mom friend of the team, NAME has been trying to do her best to support her friends and colleagues while keeping her own secrets. {officer 1} is the only one to really know anything about her personal life. She's afraid someone's going to try and hurt somebody on her team- and she's even more afraid she'd let it happen to save herself. She and {officer 3} have an ongoing dispute that nobody understands.

Image

Name: | Age: (22-35) | Officer 1 | FC: | OPEN

He's having trouble with his family life, and the case is a way of distracting him. However, he's also been drinking a lot, and hiding that from his co-workers is getting harder and harder. The case scares him, because his only friends are the night shift team, and he'd be lost without any of them. He wants to talk to some of them, but can't find the words. He's close to {analyst 2} but even she doesn't know. He trusts {Second in command} more than {team lead}.

Image

Name: | Age: (22-35) | Officer 2 | FC: | OPEN

NAME is ambitious as hell, but feels like she's stuck in her job. She wants to climb the ladder, and is already the most qualified out of her team, but feels like she's limited in her opportunities from here. She's been dating {investigator 1} on and off for a while, but it never seems to last that long. She and {officer 4} are best friends, and she's the only person to know the true extent of NAME's ambitions.

Image

Name: | Age: (22-35) | Officer 3 | FC: | OPEN
He used to date one of the day shift workers who was shot. He's a little shaken by that but it's made him all the more determined to catch whoever is doing this. He spends most of his working hours combing the crime scenes, attempting reconstructions of the murders or discussing his results with the analysts. He's starting to fall a little behind on his paperwork as a result, and has been trying to get his co-workers to cover for him. He and {analyst 2} have had a weird, strained relationship for years at this point. He's got a bit of a thing for {second in command} and flirts with her from time to time. There's something about {analyst 1} that intrigues him,

Image

Name: | Age: (22-35) | Officer 4 | FC: Daisy Ridley | iCat
She knows that more than one member of the team doesn't trust her and that they all have their own questions about her. She was regarded as a person of interest in the case due to volatile relationships with a number of the day team, but has an alibi that only {team lead} knows about. It seems that nobody on the team actually knows her that well, and that she has a list of secrets a mile long. That said, her and {officer 2} have been best friends for years, and {investigator 2} knows she always has a spot on her couch. She's got a soft spot for {analyst 1}.
