Appearance: Garrett is a bodybuilder, and Police Officer, and so he can seem quite imposing. I'm not talking the freaks who look like the hulk, but he has the physique of someone more like ...Superman (sans the powers) He is 6'4" tall, and weighs 275 pounds. He has Black hair and Green eyes. When he is not working, he usually dresses in very comfortable clothing.
Personality: Garrett is a really friendly guy, and loves to make jokes, and pull pranks. He does not tolerate bullying, or men beating on women, and will always step in, no matter the odds.
Appearance: 6' tall, slender but muscular build. Elishava works out on the days when she's not working. Has blond hair, blue-green eyes and pleasant features. Off duty, Elishava wears shorts and t-shirts, frequently with either the Anaheim Angels or Mighty Ducks logos on them.
Personality: She tends to be focused and serious on the job. In her off hours though, she is friendly and very outgoing but firm.
Background: Born and raised in the Anaheim area, Elishava was a good student and excellant athlete. She excelled at volleyball but turned down a sports scholarship because she wanted to become a paramedic to help the sick and injured. At 25 however, she now feels maybe she should become a doctor and is saving her money and planning to attend medical school in two years.
Appearance: Parker is five foot five and weighs in at one hundred and fifteen pounds. She has long blond hair that she keeps back in a pony tail most of the time. She has brown eyes and is rather fair skinned. She has a small framed, is very trim, and has little body fat. Due to her chosen profession she is athletic without being over muscled. She favors casual clothes like jeans and T's, but she wears dresses well. She is not beautiful, but borders on cute.
Personality: Due to her upbringing, Parker is not a very social individual. She is independent, with few close acquaintances and fewer friends. Growing up she did not have a lot so she appreciates even the smallest amenities. While not truly greedy, once she has something that she considers her's, whether it is rightful her's or not, she has a tendency to hold on to it. Her work gives her a true sense of worth and she is defined by it. She takes her few failure to date to heart and strives to learn from them. She does not really think of herself as a criminal, more of an artist. She is just somebody doing what she is good at. Do to the death of a close acquaintance she has an aversion to guns and avoids them. Since her finger prints are on file she is very careful to leave no traces behind.
Background: Raised in the foster care system since she was four, she does not remember much about her parents. Although she has had several 'good' homes she always managed to slip away, at least for a little while. Shortly after her seventeenth birthday on one of her little outings, she came to the attention of a fagin named Richard Chamberlain. As he was between proteges at the moment, he took Parker on. First thing he did was make her go back to her foster home till she reached eighteen. She still managed to slip away from time to time for training. Richard realized early on that Parker did not have the social skills to be a con woman so instead he taught her to be a cat burglar. She specialized in jewelry and art theft. She was well on her way several years later when he was killed in a gangland drive by. Since that time she has been on her own. Until recently she has been doing well. Over the past few months she has drawn the attention of a Boston police officer. He has foiled several plans and although he has no solid evidence at the moment she knows he is watching her. She has moved from frightened, to concerned and is currently annoyed at her would be pursuer, but she knows there is little she can do but take extra precautions to avoid arrest. When not at her true calling, she works as a receptionist/gopher at a small local art gallery.
Hometown: Des Moines, IA, currently living in L.A., or wherever is appropriate for the game.
Appearance: Rog is extremely distinctive; she has bright red hair, delicate features, long, slender limbs, and extremely pale skin. She tends to wear skimpy clothing, and stark makeup that accentuates every feature.
At least, while she is working.
Outside of work, she has short brown hair, wears no makeup, and is a little mousey. The red is a wig, and the makeup not only accentuates her features, on the job, but also smooths out her normal imperfections, freckles, and moles. Her natural skin color is several shades darker than she appears on stage. Rog dresses comfortably, outside of work, with baggy, plain sweatshirts and jeans, that modestly call no attention to her figure. In fact, her clothing doesn't call much attention to her at all; she's just another face in the crowd.
Personality: Rog is casual and easygoing, perhaps a bit too humble. She lives simply, in a studio apartment, even though her income could afford much more. Some of her favorite things to do involve just chilling out, playing video games, or chatting with friends over coffee or ice cream. She loves going to baseball and hockey games, although she never really cares who wins.
This is in stark contrast to who she is, in the press. Publicly, she is aloof, and cold. She only goes to the best parties, and snubs anyone with a lower status. Rog is arrogant, and rarely speaks to anyone outside of her social circle. Her elitism extends beyond her circle of acquaintances, to include everything she touches; she carries the best handbag, wears the best dresses, rides in the best cars. And even when she has all that, its never quite good enough.
Background: Regina was born in a poor farming community, just outside of Des Moines. Her parents were schoolteachers, and although they weren't exactly rich, they always did their best. Since her mother taught music, it was only natural that Regina learned to play several instruments as a child.
And although she always dreamed of making it big, she never thought she actually would. Until, well, it happened.
She was in high school, when there was a talent competition at the mall. Although Regina had little hope of actually winning, the first prize was a thousand dollar scholarship, so she felt it was worth a try. She got up there, played a little, sang a little, and got third place. She thought that was that.
Until she got a phone call; in the audience, there was an agent, who thought he could help her. With her parents approval, he represented her; and got her a job working in a TV show, the Des Moines version of Hannah Montana, basically. That got her face out there, and step by step, she got bigger, and more famous, and more successful...
Until just recently, she was a part of a girl-band, called Bin-Tah-Rog. The three of them had a falling out over the direction the band was going to take, and she left to start her own solo career. Which is pretty much where the game starts.
Appearance: Athletic, tall and lean. Ruggedly handsome, with several scars prove he's lived his adventures.
Personality: Driven to success, at any cost. Honesty is integrity, to a fault. Lax in his academic studies, but excels physically under pressure. Enjoys pushing himself to the limit and testing his physique against any opponent.
Background: Currently attending Harvard. Team Captain and center for the Crimson lacrosse team. Member of several societies within Harvard, including the Porcellian Club. It could be said he's lived a privileged lifestyle thus far, and you wouldn't be wrong. Given his lineage, J.R. has always lived in the shadow of his ancestors. A fact that he appreciates, it's obviously opened doors for him, but also secretly despises. After all, no matter what he does he'll always be a Roosevelt with all the expectations everyone has for him. He wants to live his life for himself, his way, not according to everyone else's plans for him.
Appearance: 5'7", weights in at around 140 lbs, thin but toned build, narrow hips/shoulders, curly dark brown hair kept just below jaw length, grey-blue eyes, slender face with a shadowy beard a shade or two lighter than hair, two bars pierced through the left ear and small hoops through both lobes, a tattoo of a lark in flight across the left shoulder blade, typically wears tight jeans and tailored blouses/button-downs, leather boots, around his neck is a braided leather cord that was tied several years ago and has remained since. In the cold: a single hazelnut colored wool scarf and a similarly colored hip-length leather jacket paired with a moss-green knitted hat.
Personality: Larkspur is quiet and keeps to himself for the most part. He has friends, but they are people who've been intrigued by him and simply started inviting him along to things. He has a tendency to "disappear" for weeks at a time from social groups, and when he appears, he always shrugs off his absences without much ado. People are in debate about his sexuality because he's been single as long as anyone can remember. He doesn't talk about his personal interests much but is amiable and will go with the flow of whatever a group is doing. He gets along alright with technology but avoids it when and where he can. He still uses a land line for phone calls. He has a computer, but everyone knows that a friend (Joanin) forced it on him one day. He doesn't mind using it, but doesn't make a point to engage in things like social media or keep up to date with the local trends, memes, news, etc. From time to time, his friends get this crazy idea that there might be something else underneath the easy-going, go-with-the-flow surface, but no-one has ever seen it. Larkspur neither confirms or denies any such allegations, whenever they do arise. Though his laughter during such conversations implies to anyone engaged that any denial is more true than a confirmation of some "dark side" would be.
Background: Larkspur has lived in Portland since birth. His parents met at the local high school, got married, had a kid, divorced, and Larkspur stayed with his dad in a small one-bedroom apartment when his mom moved away. He went to the same high school his parents did, did well enough to not cause waves, made enough friends to not seem like a social outcast, and generally just stayed out of trouble's way. He's been seen smoking weed, smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, drinking coffee, handing out in cafes or bars, dancing at clubs, sitting in book shops. In general, he's happy doing what others are interested in. After high school, he went to Portland State University and studied liberal arts, got a degree, and promptly got a job as a host at a local restaurant. He moved out from his dad's place and got his own studio apartment in the Northwest neighborhood before prices soared. At the restaurant, he quickly moved through the ranks. Once he became assistant manager and bartender, the position stuck: he's good at making schedules, dissolving conflict, making the weekly order, and chatting amiably with strangers. He does a good enough job there to get time off for his "disappearances" from time to time, which are really just camping trips out into the Oregon landscape - sometimes with his dad, more often alone.
