It is human nature to be curious, to create wonders with the scientific knowledge you gain and imagine new fantastical things. It is human nature to be greedy, and violent, and to use these things for selfish and hurtful reasons. It is human nature to draw the lines you will not cross and to cross them, to suffer, to hope, to succeed, and fail. Humans create gods and monsters, they are gods and monsters.

It is the year 2563 in Metropolis, United States.

In a world where science has made terrific leaps, unexpected consequences have occurred. From the hushed hazardous gas spills to the radioactive phenomenon, humans have at times held powers only thought up in comic books. But unlike comic books, the villains that rose up are not born innately evil. Everyone is just a person, surviving in whatever way they can. Sometimes that means rising as a gang boss to ensure your family is well off and your kid gets into college. Sometimes that means robbing an old lady for her groceries so that you don’t starve; or tossing your baby to the streets because you can’t feed them. Don’t cringe, there are worse things done in this world. Crime has gone steadily up at an alarming pace, while the economy worsens and living conditions plummet; leaving a wide gap between the rich and poor. New drugs enter the market, and with as intense as the new street drugs are, half the population is barely even lucid enough to notice the injustice surrounding them. Chaos reigned for quite some time, until...


The US government attempts to declare Martial Law that is how bad it was. But the attempt fails, and that’s how bad it got. It is organized at the moment to where the criminal public agrees to keep the crime to a minimum, no bombing elementary schools and such, and the cops are required to look the other way when it comes to things like petty theft and drug dealing. A disturbing and unhealthy balance forms, where crime remains steady, and justice remains literally blind...

But there are those who would not stand for such a twisted way to give in to this way of life. Criminals and desperate people are not the only ones who had developed powers. Unfortunately those vigilantes who won’t stand for such an illusionary peace are outnumbered and attacked on both ends. The public wants this balance; they believe it can’t be helped, and so those trying to stop crime are looked down upon. The government seems to be supporting this view, and has developed a lynching law. That’s right, if a vigilante is spotted, it has been declared legal for the public to lynch them on sight. Here, the good guys are kept as disorganized as the bad ones; if you can even call them good guys at times…

Meanwhile….

ImageThe military has funded and authorized a team of scientists, the best of the elite, to create a solution to all of their problems from a lab created out of public eye, in space. The project is given the top secret name; F L A W L E S S. These scientists work on what is known in laymen’s terms as a super soldier. They succeed, and it turns out to be everything they had hoped for and more. This super’s reflexes, strength, speed, agility, durability, and intelligence off the charts, the super even has the ability of flight. The super is considered truly flawless. Until the super starts to exhibit negative personality traits; extreme narcissistic complexity of anger, bouts of defiance and boredom, casual emotion towards biological life besides the super’s own, and the biggest problem, loneliness. As a solution to hopefully all of the problems, the scientists come up with another brilliant idea. They allowed the super to help create a companion, someone just like them. Besides, two was better than one. This pleased the super greatly, and for some months the super was contented with designing the most pleasing looks for their companion while at the same time learning about how the super themselves were created. When the super was satisfied at knowing the entire process (a couple of months before his companion was finished) he did away with the scientists. By that I mean he killed all of them, it wasn’t as though he really needed them anymore, or the world needed them for that matter. Their mission was completed, he was made, and his companion was almost complete. He set the computers to finish downloading the general world information and history into his companion’s brain, and left the station from the atom transporters, reappearing on earth. He set out to do what he was created for, to bring order to chaos. And that is exactly what happened, within a matter of a couple of weeks, he had crime organized from their chaos, planning to use them as bringers of peace and light. Everyone under one order, his own, and to help him, his righteous army of crimelords. He goes by the name Flawless.


But while he waits for his companion to join him, up in the space station, the technology used has had an unexpected short out, easily fixable by the handy man. But he’s dead. The programmed computers shut off, and the companion’s programming is lost. She awakens, as new to the world as a child. Impressionable and ready to soak up any information that comes to her super-geared cortex or a mind. Will she be used to tip the scale of justice and reject her purpose? Or will she embrace her destined purpose? As a vigilante finds her after she accidentally transports to earth in the middle of the street, it is up to him and those who decide to aid them in order to teach this new being what it means to be on the side of justice. But can they do that if they’ve begun to see that line blur?

About


From the information above, I am sure you have gathered that this rp is at its basic form, a vigilante and villain rp. But rather than keeping it generic and simple, I wanted to stem off from that sort of clear-cut line and get a bit more realistically in depth. Heroes that play dirty and are vicious, villains with relatable Imageproblems and reasons behind what they are doing. In fact you may find yourself agreeing with the head villain, don’t worry it happens, he is dashingly handsome and charismatic after all. Sometimes good people do bad things, and bad people to good things. Questionable morals and a mature atmosphere are what this rp is going to be about. If you are game for that then cool, if you'd have a problem with cursing, gritty and rough actions, and violence (lots of it) then mayhaps this rp isn't for you. I plan for this story to involve everyone in it, and we will be using the ooc quite a bit to flesh out plans and interactions. If you join you will not be left out, and hopefully we can create a literate and kick-ass environment. Emphasis on the literate, seriously, I will be checking your posting history to see if you are literate and a good writer, unless you want me to look at a sample from you, which I understand if you are new or if you have only been in casual rps for a while. So if that is the case, then pm me and we can work around that.

Build Your Character

Image

The sign-up information and a few suggested roles I need are in the ooc, mind you the term roles does not mean that those slots have any requirements in the creation of your character, simply in what they do in the beginning so we can get this show on the road. As of now they are not needed except for one, and the rest can be npc-ed. For characters though, I would like to see some unique powers and abilities, with weaknesses that are valid, not BS weaknesses like being arrogant or reckless. Those are personality flaws and belong in explaining your character’s personality, not weaknesses. Tell me what you are bad at for those, what could counter your character's ability, anything they are simply not good at. Same goes for strengths. Basically I want anything you put on your profile to be well thought out and important. Also, don't be afraid to go look at others people's profiles and have some sort of connection to them! All it takes is a pm, and boom, you're connected; it makes things more fun that way. You can either play a 'good' guy or 'bad' guy, now mind you good guys are hated by the general population, though there might still be that little kid out there that looks up to you, and the bad guys are kind of ignored. Good guys must keep a low profile lest they get lynched. Keep this in mind when making your character; I'm sure it will change a few things when thinking of your character's outlook on life. As with any good rp, no mary-sues or gary-sues please, I will give you a review of your character before I accept it, stating if the profile is good or not, and other than letting me see a sample of your writing everything should go smoothly. I am keeping little banners here to keep track of who is on what side and linking the profiles to the pictures so that we can be sure to have easy access whenever we wish. If you can not make a banner for your character be sure to let me know in the ooc, put ina request and I will be happy to work on that for you. I am sure I will also get a volunteer or two to help make those two, that would be appreciated. Go check out the roles and some ideas I have in the ooc, sign-up your character and lets get this show on the road!

Ok look, bottom line is, if you are literate and you know it (clap your hands) then you know how to act in an rp. Be appropriate, don't take character rivalry seriously, and above all be creative and have fun. :D

I have linked what went on so far in the Prologue of this rp. Mind you those charactser may or may not be re-joining, so don't worry about it. This is basically the first official chapter, and we will make it our own. That is just a fun read that you might want to check.

-I will be checking your literacy via a sample post. to save me the trouble, I ask that you pm me with a roleplay you have been in, that should tell me if you are literate or not. If you are new, pm me and we can discuss it.
-Do you see my profile, all two of them (the third is one I adopted), you see how much is written and explained? I put effort into it! Please do the same for me, I like profiles and I'm sorry if you don't, but hey, if you're too lazy to write a good profile then maybe this roleplay isn't for you. Because I expect nothing but striving for the best.
-Don't be fooled by my harsh words right now, I simply find that if I am firm riht now, I don't have to squirm during confrontation later. I'm kinda a wimp when it comes to that.
-I like to see a variety when it comes to characters, but then again I do want realistic substance, find a mix between the two.
-I am always open to ideas, ALWAYS
