About
    The world is in ruins. Millions have died, widespread societal collapse causing the downfall of most countries. Nuclear war has rendered much of the planet uninhabitable. Disease, starvation, and continuing conflict will kill millions more in the coming years. The United States has been reduced to an authoritarian police state, quashing any resistance. Food is scarce, with most being lucky to receive their meager rations. A movement has sprung to fight back. The Patriots have begun to fight back against the National Defense Force, hoping to end this totalitarian nightmare. But, in every revolution, innocents will be harmed and violence may be the only way of solving things. Will the revolutionaries defeat their corrupt government? Will they be quashed like all those that came before? And if they do emerge victorious, what will be the cost? How many bodies will be buried in the foundations? How many innocents must die to save the future?

What is this?
    This is a character RP, nonexistent questioning person. You'll be taking control of a revolutionary in a group calling themselves "The Patriots". The current government is an authoritarian police state, silencing any dissent. You'll be taking part in a revolution to try and topple the administration. Whether or not The Patriots are a morally abhorrent pack of terrorists or populist visionaries will be entirely dependent on your actions. Your actions could also cause the downfall of the organization, so there's that.

General Rules
  • Don't be a dick. I know I say this repeatedly, but Wheaton's Law is a law to live by.
  • No Metagaming, Godmodding, etc. You know the drill.
  • One liners are unacceptable. Poor grammar is unacceptable.
  • I'm well aware that not everyone on NationStates is American. Foreign characters are perfectly reasonable, but please ensure their biography makes sense in the lore.
  • OP and Co-Op decisions are law. Respect that.
  • OP reserves the right to deny applications without explanation.
  • OP reserves the right to retcon posts when necessary
  • OP and Co-Op will primarily control non Patriot forces. Exceptions will only be made in specific circumstances.
  • General forum rules apply. Don't bring the mods down on us, please.
  • Have fun.

Nation Name: Australian Antarctica
Character Name: Richard Williamson
Gender: Male
Age: 29
Bio (Two paragraphs minimum): Born in Seattle, Richard had an okay childhood. Okay being raised by a widower father after his mother died during childbirth.He tried the best he could but when Richard was 17 he had to drop out and find a job. Richard ended up just barely scraping by during the recession, his cousin Vincent in Wisconsin helping out by sending money. During the unrest in 2018, his house was burned to the ground and his father killed.

The next 10 years saw Richard working even more odd jobs, finally settling as a mechanic after a few years. Here he excelled, going so far as to manage his own shop. Even with the scarce fuel, there was still business. Mainly NDF and Electric cars. In 2027, he discovered his boss wiring a bomb to an NDF MATV. Rather than stopping him, Richard helped. That began his involvement with the Patriots, becoming an inside man, working still closely with the NDF. There is some suspicion of his involvement with the Patriots, but not solid evidence, meaning the best they can do is continue giving him business while reminding him of the rules.
Skills: Mechanic, Spy, some moderate skills with explosives and firearms.
RP Examples or Sample: Co-Op Privilege.

...No.

There are pre-programmed robots by this point, such as a commercially utilized version of the Big Dog robot, but that's about it.

I mean, I don't think Ted was particularly funny in the first place, but ok.

The original Red Dawn was the best.

Appearance:

Gender: Female
Age: 32
Bio (Two paragraphs minimum): Born in Chicago, Illinois in 1997 to a military family. Her father served in the marines during Vietnam. Veronica grew up in a rather abusive household, where her father would often abuse him, verbally and physically. After attending college, She joined the army and would be deployed to Iraq after the events of 9/11. Her experiences would scar her permanently, leaving her callous and distrusting of the government. Upon returning to the states in 2015, she took up a solitary lifestyle as a drifter, picking up any work she could.

It was in 2017 that Veronica's world was utterly destroyed. While on a trip to Chicago, she experienced firsthand the events of that December. Then, she was forced to watch as the entire planet collapsed around her. What remained of her family would be killed for dissidence shortly after martial law was declared. Veronica moved throughout the States in the intervening years, leaving a trail of NDF bodies behind her. Now, she intends to lay low in New Seattle, though her plans may go up in smoke soon.

Nation Name: Stormwrath

Character Name: Matthew Barrick
Appearance: Here.
Gender: Male
Age: 32
Bio (Two paragraphs minimum): Matthew was born in Southern California. His father was a military engineer and researcher at a major American defense contractor and his mother was a schoolteacher at a primary school. They broke up while he was eleven, which may have scarred him quite a lot, and Matthew moved with his father to San Bernardino. His parents' divorce affected his later school life, as he became rebellious and got involved in brawls with his classmates. One incident however got him expelled from high school, and so he was forced by his father to go to military school.

Matthew was found out by his peers to be intelligible with technology, particularly in hacking, and so became part of an intelligence detachment for the NDF. However, he didn't like what he was doing, as he was aiding the government in murdering people who in his eyes did nothing wrong. What made him leave the NDF was the news that his closest friends (who resisted the totalitarian government) were massacred at a military raid near Redlands. Five years later, he hears of a group called "The New Patriots" from his friend Jackie Bell (see other app below), even getting invited by her into the group.
Skills: Hacker, moderate skills with firearms.

Character Name: Jackie Bell
Appearance: Here
Gender: Female
Age: 28
Bio (Two paragraphs minimum): Jackie was born as Augusta Moore to a single mother in San Diego. She was partly traumatized by her mom, who was very physically abusive to her. At one time when she was five, one of the neighbors found out about the abuses when Augusta screamed for help, since her mother was hitting her with a beer bottle. The police was called and her mother was arrested on the charges of child abuse. Augusta was then moved to an orphanage, where she lived for three years.

She was adopted by a gun enthusiast father and a neurosurgeon mother, who gave Augusta a new given name: Jacqueline (hence the nickname Jackie). She was adopted by her new parents, who brought her to live in Redlands. Jackie managed to finish college with a degree in software design, and works as an app designer. She also takes her time shooting at the local firing range and vlogging on social networking sites – on the latter, she became a vocal criticizer of the NDF's human rights abuses and of the martial law imposed by the US government. The NDF in response issued a warrant of arrest against her, and she fled to New Seattle, where she found refuge under the New Patriots.
Skills: Propaganda, driving, adept at assault rifles, moderate at other firearms and explosives

Nation Name: Beiarusia

Character Name: Katherine Tallow / Katelyn Tallow

Appearance:
Identical twins, Katherine and Katelyn are near indistinguishable from one another psychically. Both are small framed and malnourished, stunted at just under average height with angular faces and sharp features, a small nose, and thick eyebrows. Dirty blond hair worn in similar styles of disorder, hacked short at neck level and with jagged bangs brushing over their eyes. Fair skinned as well as freckled, having crooked grins and blue-green eyes. Both twins possess heterochromia in their right eye, the iris being more grey than blue, the difference being almost nonexistent in Katherine while being extremely prominent in Katelyn, the condition worsened by her prior illness. Habitually the twins dress alike, preferring loose fitted clothing such as hoodies and sweatpants.

Gender: Female

Age: 17

Bio (Two paragraphs minimum):
Born 31 October 2011 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Katherine and Katelyn would spend their early years living in Washington state with their single mother, their father having died before their birth in a car accident. While money was hard to come by during the recession -- their mother worked multiple jobs to only just support them -- the sisters lived a relatively normal childhood, blissfully ignorant of the state of the world. During the Chinese/American War, the small family would return to British Columbia to stay with an uncle. He would later be killed during the Canadian Annexation.

In April of 2018 Katelyn and her mother would come down with the Red Death, the latter later dying due to severe complications arising from the disease. Katelyn would survive but would never fully recover, remaining frail and often times sickly even to this day. By the end of the year, with their uncle having already died in the annexation, the twins would be caught up in the exodus of refugees moving south and into Washington state. They would eventually be settled in an area that would later become New Seattle, staying briefly in an overcrowded shelter before running away following allegations of abuse. Though never formally investigated it is known that Katherine stabbed a caretaker with a kitchen knife after accusing him of harassing Katelyn.

The next ten years would be spent living on the streets, Katherine going through great difficulties to protect her sister. Originally reliant on petty theft to survive, the twins would later align themselves with various gangs as runners, delivering packages and contraband in exchange for food and shelter. Their allegiances, however, would remaining fleeting, swearing no lasting loyalty to any one person or ideal, prioritizing their own survival over that of others. This forced neutrality has led the sisters to being on good terms with various gangs and factions throughout the Seattle area, purposefully separating themselves from conflicts that, ultimately, do not concern them. While not particularly fond of the NDF the twins do not hold a hatred of the government, preferring to simply live in the moment regardless of global politics. Despite this they have recently become involved with the Patriots, more so out of necessity rather than revolutionary conviction. Marked by the NDF as belonging to the Patriots after a package delivery few wish to further have dealings with the sisters in fear of becoming targeted themselves. With few other options remaining, Katherine and Katelyn have opted to remain with the revolutionary group for the time being with plans to ultimately head back north and into Canada.

Skills:
Katherine: Great endurance allows her to maintain a fast pace for long durations, making her a valuable asset as a runner. Capable of parkour to some measurable degree. Skilled in remaining unseen and hiding herself from threats. Possesses a balisong and, while not trained, knows where to stab to cause the most damage and/or pain. Excellent memory but prone to skimping over details. Has a basic understanding of first aid and medicine in general due to watching over her sister for so long.

Katelyn: Sickly and, as such, has poor endurance but is a decidedly faster sprinter than her sister. Extremely agile though exceptionally unbalanced and clumsy. Skilled in remaining unseen and hiding herself from threats. Great at maintaining lies and talking her way through difficult situations. Very observant but is also forgetful and scatterbrained. Has a natural musical talent, owning and playing an acoustic guitar that once belonged to her uncle.
