Some Murder Some Massacre

Some Murder Some Massacre


1-on-1 anime detective RP between Gintoki Sakata and one other. Pm or post in OOC if interested. Male character needed. Non-romance.

366 readers have visited Some Murder Some Massacre since Gintoki Sakata created it.



The setting is 1832, New England. Recently, there have been numerous killings on the St. Linsten Express. Whenever this train makes its stop, everyone on board is found either dead, or barely clinging to life. There have been up to 3 occurrence of this happening within the last 5 months. The express has shut down immediately after each occurrence, but reopens only a week or two later. It has been 4 days since St. Linsten's 3rd reopening, only this time. There are two master detectives on board to solve the mystery behind the massacres.

One detective has a very fluid mind. Thoughts of all varieties are constantly flowing through his head. His outward appearance is always calm and composed, while he likes to keep his true thoughts hidden away to himself, most of the time. His wit his nearly unmatched and it is nearly impossible to fool him. His eyes can see through any facade. He is a master at reading body language and getting information from people, even without their knowing. He has learned how to deal with many different types of people, so he can manipulate them to react in a way that he can work with. He has the ability to get to know and understand someone so well, that it becomes nearly impossible to lie to him, within just a few minutes. He is also quite skilled in the powers of persuasion. This said, his main role in detective investigation is dealing with people. Despite his almost unmatched intelligence, this detective has a very weak constitution. He has lung cancer at a very serious stage that is barely treatable at this time. He has to take medication at least twice a day in order to keep his condition under control. Every now and then, he will cough up blood. Along with his physical health, this detective is also somewhat mentally unstable. Corresponding with his bloodcurdling cough attacks, he tends to get maliciously violent whenever he is provoked. This could be caused by someone mocking his weak constitution, or trying too hard to make him feel better. When he is in one of these moods, the slightest irritation can set him off, further impeding his physical condition until he is forced to calm down.

The other detective however, isn't nearly as practical. Animistic instincts always afire, he can see, smell, hear, feel, and taste things most normal humans can't. Whenever he enters a room, he automatically scans every last inch of it, using his heightened senses. While focusing on certain aspects in a room, it dulls what he can sense in any other room or area otherwise. Its almost as if that 1 room is currently his entire world and everything outside of it doesn't exist. Those who know about this ability think that he is overly cautious, since he does it with every room he enters. Consciously, at least. He is like the fire to his partner's ice. A short tempered ruffian is what some might describe him as. He is impatient and rude when it comes to dealing with people, which is why he usually leaves that to his partner. He would sooner resort to violence, than attempt to reason with someone beyond the pre-instructed demand or unanswered question. If not violence, then simple roughhousing or intimidation. This detective tends to act more with his emotions than with his brain, which leaves him in situations that he can't solve quite so easily. In any case, this detective is most at home at the crime scene. There, he can take in every last bit of information regarding how it took place. In this atmosphere, he is truly in his own world. In this world by himself, he is able to think more clearly, without restraint. He is actually able to use every bit of evidence to create an internal visual image of how the crime took place, with every little detail. His clear mind allows him to decide the most realistic outcome and come to a assured conclusion. Much to his partner's discontent, the other detective's sister is also this detective's fiance.

These two, through both their differences and expertise compliment each other and make the ultimate detective duo. Throughout the 6 years they've worked together, there hasn't been a single case that they couldn't solve. The thought never came to their minds that this very case may be their most difficult yet. One that might cost them their very lives. Will these two master detectives solve the case of the St. Linsten Express Massacre's, or will they struggle simply just to survive?

No specific character sheet required. Must have up to 6 side characters per rp'er to include in the rp. 1 out of the 12 will be randomly selected as the killer. The main point of the rp is to identify the killer before everyone else on the St. Linsten Express is murdered. Success is attained if at least one other innocent passenger remains alive by the end. Only anime pictures are allowed. The rest of the rp requirements shall be discussed in either the OOC or pm's.
