Skills:

Thuggish Rouge
Over the course of his Intrepid career as a criminal youth Solomon has acquired a number of skills and habits, some useful other less so, that he found to both necessary and needed in the situations that confronted him over the course of his education in the "School of Hard Knocks". From the mundane like hotwiring a car and picking a lock(petty thief), all the way to the far more brutish including a broad knowledge of intimidation and a fondness for weapons and occasional random violence. Bred from a violent and hateful childhood defined by endemic poverty from which the only the certain guarantee was pain being inflicted upon him of some sorts; Since the quarantine he has been able to put many of these skills to use with varying results.

Vehicle Maintenance/Use
Knows his way around a vehicle whether that be cars, bicycles or his favorite motorcycles. Whether it be stealing, hotwiring, fixing, or simply driving them around town them fucking around with his toys as he calls them is both a passion and one of Solomon's few pleasures in this world.

Construction Skills
Since being provided legitimate employment via a relative Solomon has acquired a number of basic skills as a construction worker. Knowing his way around a hammer or a protractor he's gained a reasonable knowledge in building and maintaining structures. Whether that be in the form of making barricades, or destroying stairs these skills have blossomed in the hard times since.

Criminal Intuition
While relatively lacking in a proper education Solomon has what one might call "street smarts". In addition to his roughish skills he also a natural knowledge and understanding of what it takes to survive under less than ideal circumstances. Hunger, pain, poverty, raw violence and terror have all been feelings and sensations that he has both experienced and come to know intimately and as such has had to learn to endure from a young age. And with that has come an almost uncanny knack to not only know, sense, but also have a basic understanding of what to do in difficult circumstances not if but when they come. Whether that be in the form of old habits like knowing what house to rob or when the police might be near or more newer ones like when's the best time to leave before a horde of infected arrives is irrelevant.

Physically Fitness
Along with cars/vehicles and gambling up until he learn to read at the age of 12 Solomon had an almost zealous dedication to crafting the temple that was his body into a state of martial "perfection" or at the very least doing his damn hardest to try. This was not just some plain hobby taken up by him but a necessity to survive the absolute savage challenges of his childhood. While a gun might be not, it isn't always there. The fist in contrast is always presents and always reliable. Though not as fixated since his youth due to his former occupation combined with regularly working out Solomon has been able to maintain a reasonable degree of physical fitness compared to most. This has come in form of various benefits namely physical fitness and endurance to name the most obvious.

Avid Book Reader
Despite the aforementioned lack of education Solomon is a surprisingly well read individual upon learning to read from a chaplain while incarcerated he has found a tremendous amount of solace via literature. Due to this he has made for himself a rather nice book collection and has developed a rather strong predilection for journaling. On the road one will never find him without atleast one book, along with said journal of course.

Weaknesses:

Paranoia
His difficult upbringing bought with it not only physical scars but mental ones too. The line between "productive" criminal intuition and a crippling social dysfunctional is a narrow one, Solomon is no better proof of that. Fear isn't just emotional but a state of being in the mind of Solomon. Though he goes to bed with a gun under his pillow and a razor blade under his tongue the fixation that someone is going to betray or hurt him means there are nights he can't even rest.

Poor Social Skills
Said Paranoia and other issues lead to the secondary issue of poor social skills retarded not only by his dysfunctional family life defined by a mix of abandonment, a constant shifting array of foster homes, and issues that come with falling through the cracks of a broken system; but also by his repeated incarcerations. Being stuck in a hall full of absolute barbarians and surrounded by maniacs engaged in constant psychological warfare and occasional bouts of short but intense violence has led to an expected outcome in an impressionable youth. At the minimum this young man is a jaded individual with a propensity to responding to negative stimuli with sometimes extreme violence makes it difficult to form proper close connections with others. With that has come a weak social network largely comprised of many of the same aforementioned who have shaped him into the man he has come to be and has in many ways held him back from realizing any true potential outside his bleak circumstances.

Outlook of Despair
"Misery is all I see, it's my mind state" No truer words have been spoken that speak to the state of mind and being that is Solomon. From the moment he wakes up till the time he goes to sleep he has to pray thanks that he made it another 24, because the next aren't guaranteed. This is beyond a simple feeling of sadness of a mild case of melancholy. Solomon's mental state has gone far beyond that into a much darker place. From his earliest memories this is a boy who has in some ways gone through life with a death wish living on borrowed time and the worst part about it... he knows it too. At only age 10 when asked where he expects to be in the next 10 years he said plainly "I'll probably die". The fact that that seems to be delayed for the time being is only a small solace, will he make it past his teens? Only god knows, because this boy from the ghetto certainly doesn't.

Old War Wounds
His rough childhood followed by regular injuries from constant conflict ranging from gunshots to stabbings and old broken bones has led to a number of war wounds which occasionally cause issues. Though not as sever as they could be occasional bought of pain and stiffness of joins are not uncommon for the young man. This can make it difficult for him to push himself when he needs it the most and cause general discomfort and unwelcome irritation at inopportune times.

Minimal Formal Education
Despite his love for reading and general street knowledge as mentioned Solomon is of limited means in a more formal sense of the word. With schooling interrupted by a mix of regular truancies and being in and out of prison from a young age this has led to poor academic outcomes as one might expect. The streets and the experiences of his life were his primary schooling. While versed in the basics like the three Rs(Reading, Writing, Arithmetic) his knowledge in even basic schooling matters(Stem, Liberal Arts, etc) could at best be described as... rough to say the least. He learned what he needed and worked with what he had. Though one shouldn't underestimate him, though seemingly crude and lacking in intelligence many have learned the hard way that what he lacks in schooling he makes up for in raw cunning and an almost razor like shrewdness that has caught many of guard.

Personality:
If one were to make the acquittance of the young man named Solomon first appearances would prove to be poor. Many words would come to mind: a thief, a malcontent, a belligerent hood, or crude spoken thug; whatever words one uses they all boiled down to one thing. Dealt a bad hand from the start A youth with an unsettling propensity for violence and a paranoid mentality that leads him to come off as cold at best and callous at worst. The rigors of life have left this young man jaded and weary having fallen hard through the cracks at young age and forced to fight a running battle with a fate that promised only a cell or a patch of dirt. Despite all that, despite all the pain and the hardship and the belligerent and savage cruelty that have formed the basis of his external being if one were to look deep, they would find a scared little boy just trying to find home. He knows he's living wrong and with the reaper always seemingly around the corner he knows it's only a matter of time before he checks out. With that has come an all encompassing depression a feeling almost of miasma ain the form of raw fear that permeates every fiber of his being. When asked by a prison psychologist his only answer was as such: "I feel sick... I feel very sick." No truer words could be spoken for this lost and unhappy youth whose very self esteem of himself is minimal living his life on borrowed time going day by day and starting and ending everyone having to thank god that he made another 24, because tomorrow. it's not promised.

Biography:

Born and raised in the post industrial slums of South-Side Chicago to a heroin addicted teenage Mother and an unknown Father at Solomon's birth like for all children God was smiling down upon him but more than likely was also frowning, for he knew the trials this boy would have to endure just to survive. Growing up his world was a ghetto where devils and men lived side by side in grand discord. Unwanted and unloved his mother, one named Sasha Day, seemed to take greater care in partying and men. A new one of which would seemingly come every other day or so. Some crueler, others less so to the young Solomon who struggled just to be heard and who over the years would languish in the agony that is childhood neglect.

At the age of 3 his mother would take the fateful decision of abandoning the toddler leaving him alone hungry, cold, and scared. It was at this age that Solomon would enter his first foster "home". One of 10 that would be inflected upon him over the next 6 years the result of which lead to a youth with maybe only a tenth the love necessary to function as a human being. This was a time of uncertainty and pain unimaginable in which the only certainty was that someone was going to hurt him. Food was not guaranteed, safety certainly wasn't nor shelter, nor love, nor affection or any other things one would see as necessary to raise a mentally fit and socially adjusted individual. Nay the only thing promised was pain. Who, what, when, and why varied from time to time but regardless of those it wasn't an inevitable. Solomon like so many tragic and lost youth had fallen through the cracks, the cracks which hurt and deprive and turn little children into painful little jagged pieces. The end result would come to be a menace to society.

Age 8 would be the year he got his first stripes so to speak committing a shooting with a stolen gun against a boy who had tried to bully him before. This would soon prove to be only the beginning. The next 10 years his life would be defined by armed robbery and dreams with a gun in his hand and a gleam in his eye this youth named after a King of old would show himself to be a menace to society. Carving for himself a bloody patch of his own making as his reputation on the streets he called home grew so did the heights of his criminal career. It wasn't long before he found himself cliqued up with a gang. A shorty for a local set of Kings Hill Rangers as they knew themselves as. From a petty thief with a known temper to stick up kid and later feared enforcer on the streets he called home, the once victim unembraced by the village became the very thing that had led to his creation. But as he grew older and more violent and cruel he found simultaneously that he was not only no happier than he had been before but in some ways worse. In and out of prison and whether behind the wall or in the world always having to look over his shoulder and keep a gun under his pillow even when he slept he took on the mentality of a hunted animal caught in a trap always fearing what was behind the corner. The way of the gun which had laid so much promise to provide him freedom and safety he had so craved had proven to be a trap and one he found himself unable to get out.

Attempts at reform proved difficult at best, and damn near impossible at worst. Solomon understood he was living dead wrong and he tried, he really did. During a particularly long prison stay Solomon took shop classes during which he learned he had a proficiency with his hands. Hands which had up until that point had been meant primarily to destroy could also build. When he finally got out he took those skills to use getting in contact with a distant relative Solomon was able to acquire a job as a construction laborer and later an apprentice carpenter. With that some progress was made to getting out of the gutter. But like crack did to Pooky the Streets sung a siren song that proved impossible to ignore forever. Whether due to greed or desperation or even just raw boredom the boy named Solomon always found himself getting dragged back to square one. the struggle was real even before the outbreak had even started.

Since the end times have begun the life of Solomon which had already been spiraling to the drain has arguably only gotten even more complicated. In many ways due to the far more brutal circumstances Solomon whose progress towards bettering himself had already been slow has regressed in many ways. Faced with the pressures of survival in a world turned over Solomon has found the need to return to old ways and habits and return to the assistance of old allies just to make it to another day. Since the beginning of the riots and the rise of the infected every day has been a deadly sprint with the reaper himself. Whether it be in the form of hordes of infected, enemy opps(especially the Westside Boys) launching raids on his gangs steadily shrinking territory, or the near total collapse in local infrastructure and services Solomon and his few confederates have found themselves mired in a total war of attrition where defeat equals annihilation. One that they along with Solomon find themselves both ill equipped to handle and based on how things are going on the losing end of. In the fight between light and darkness, will this prove to be the end of this young man whose life has been one set of pain after the other? Only time and god will tell in the end.

It'll really just depend on what's going on. There's never really been a set standard so I'll move us ahead as necessary.

That's not a revolver that exists.

Unless you mean Schofield, in which case, it doesn't use .44 Magnum. It uses one of: .44 S&W Russian, .44 S&W American, .38 S&W, .44 Henry, .44-40 Winchester, .45 S&W, .32 S&W. And of those, only .38 S&W and .44-40 is reliably found anywhere outside of niche sporting goods stores that cater to antique firearms.

A few minor things. It sounds like he's been in-and-out of prison several times but is only 18? Was probably in Juvenile then, or maybe bump up his age by a few years? He's also pretty heavy while also being very short, and while I know muscle is more dense than fat he's either overweight or jacked to a terrifying degree. Lastly, what gang is he involved in?

Few issues. Your nationality would technically be American. You were born in America and have never been to Australia despite having a father from overseas. As Anowa stated, do you mean the Schofield Revolver? Which is just a S&W Model 3. It's basically an antique. Formatting is also off since not everything should be bold (easy fix). Biography is also too short. Two paragraphs minimum. RP Example is basically any other RP's you may have been in and serves simply as a sample of your writing if there's any doubt. Lacking previous RP's I just look to your bio. Concerning the death of his family, the bombing injured a lot of people but surprisingly didn't kill that many and your family would account for 75% of the actual deaths as of now. If anything I'd prefer if the bio was fleshed out a bit more. Like, how did he get shot? Why does he have a katana when those aren't common? Why's he still in Chicago instead of leaving? etc.

Name: Kenneth 'Ken' Peterson
Age (DoB): 23 (1 April 1995)
Nationality: American
Appearance: Height: 170cm, Weight: 95kg
Ken is about as stereotypical a nerd as one can be, short and fat, with a complexion that is equal parts pale and aggressively acne-ridden. Yet, he stands with a posture that somehow portrays him as a man possessed of confidence and ego. His face is pinched, appearing too small for his thick and rather bulbous head, narrow blue eyes drawn tight above a sharp nose and thin lips. His face is clean-shaven, showing not a hint of the dark greasy hair that flows from the top of his head. His locks are almost always tied back into a messy pony-tail, the split ends that make up the end falling limply to the centre of his back. As it comes to outfits, he almost exclusively wears graphic anime or video-game t-shirts, cargo shorts or jeans, and cheap white running shoes. Aviator glasses and a fedora will more often than not complete the ensemble.

Occupation: Unemployed
Immunity: None

Equipment:
  • Backpack:
    • Water bottle (full)
    • Chocolate bars x2
    Clothing:
    • T-shirt (Hatsune Miku)
    • Aviator sunglasses
    • Cargo shorts
    • Running shoes
    • Finger-less glover
    On-Person:
    • Smartphone (dead)
    • Katana (cheap replica purchased from a flea market)

Skills:
  • League of Legends
Weaknesses:
  • Fitness
  • Athletics
  • Socialising
  • Hygiene

Personality: Ken is arrogant beyond all belief, in spite of his numerous short-comings. Rather, it may be more apt to describe him as arrogant due to said short-comings. He views himself as enlightened and above pesky American society, looking down on "normies" and "jocks", he has instead retreated to a world of fantasy, enveloping himself fully in the world of anime and video games. He idolises Japan and Japanese culture, and longs to move there. Alas, he is also incapable of holding down a full-time job, and is therefore forced to live with his parents, spending his meagre funds on items that fuel his hobbies. Ultimately, Ken is rather rude and curt, and feels that he is owed more than his lot in life, blaming society as a whole for his own short-comings.

Blessed with a slightly-above average intelligence, he has unfortunately interpreted this slight advantage to mean that he is entirely above that of his fellow man. As a result he tends to push forth with his own ideas over those of his companions and struggles to see the flaws in his own plans. However, when pushed, his backbone crumbles rather easily, and he is far more comfortable grumbling behind someone else's back than he is actively starting conflict. Unless, of course, that conflict relates to the best girl in a particular anime series.

Likes:
  • Anime
  • Video games
  • Katanas
Dislikes:
  • Society
  • Women
  • Showers

Biography: Ken was born and raised in Chicago, the only son of a relatively well-off and entirely proper middle class family. His father was an accountant, his mother a primary school teacher, his early life was about as uneventful as one could possibly imagine. However, Ken soon found himself the victim of bullying in school, his awkward way of socialising and ineptness when it came to sport making him an easy target. He withdrew, and soon found himself finding relief through escapism, often engaging in long-drawn out video game sessions or watching countless hours of anime. Eventually, Ken did manage to find his tribe, fellow nerds, and enjoyed the remainder of his high school career. However, he was never able to excel academically, and found himself listless upon graduating.

He attempted to attend a local community college, but soon found himself uninterested in the work-load and dropped out. Attempts at holding down a job proved relatively fruitless, the man more content to live his life of relative peace and quiet, deriving pleasures from his computer as opposed to the real world. Whilst there is, of course, nothing wrong with engaging with such media, Ken was obsessed with it and soon found that it took over much of his life. His room, still his childhood bedroom, is adorned with posters of his favourite franchises and a collection of weapons he insists he is well-versed in.

With the coming of the collapse, Ken has found himself walled in his own home, his parents somewhere out of state and out of the city. He is not unaccustomed to days spent indoors in Chicago suburbia, but such long stretches were usually accompanied by food and power. For the moment, he cowers.

Name: Koji Genji
Age (DoB): 28.
Nationality: Japanese-American.
Appearance: Gaunt, tall, and formerly somewhat muscular. His hair has become unkempt, and his facial hair has started to grow out as well.

Occupation: Formerly the Hospital Chaplain at Loyola University Medical Center
Immunity: Unknown.

Equipment:
-Personal Religious Items kept within his chaplaincy office.
108 stringed Mala
Three Pure Land Sutras

-Medical Equipment
First aid kit [salvaged sterile equipment includes: scalpal, bandages, sutures, sewing string, alcohol pads, rubbing alcohol, a small mirror, and gauze].


-Defensive Items
Six Bottles of liquid perfume- [Dabs small amounts as a distraction tactic towards the infected. If desperate can launch the glass container as a perfume bomb dousing the unfortunate target in perfume making their scent a target mark toward the infected]
Nightstick [retrieved from a dead security guard, is used to knock the infected down or push them away].
3 cans of sprayable deodorant.
Wigs [formerly worn to cover those who lost hair due to cancer now used as a distraction mechanism, prop up a broom, put a wig on it, spray perfume, and done].
Broom [pushing back infected or propping up wigs]
Shovel- primarily used for burying the dead, but can land a quick blow to drive the infected back and enable him to run away.

-Six cans of beans were taken from the Cafeteria.
-Three protein bars.
-Water Canteen.
-Sleeping Bag (though lately, Koji has been sleeping in the hospital beds).





Skills:

The Moral Conscience: Views everything in complex moral terms he refuses to watch as humanity engages in the basest of barbarism and degenerates into tribalism. His faith drives him forward.

Amateur Medical Expert: In the early days of the pandemic as people began to be infected and come to the medical center Koji had to get basic first aid training to help supplement the nurses and doctors who were being taken to deal with the more severe cases.

Moral Support: Being a Hospital Chaplain means he is able to listen to people's traumas, their skills to cope, and is able to help the dying face peace in a world of chaos.

Weaknesses:

Delusional: Currently the grief riddles his mind to the point he experiences full hallucinations at times of previous events, memories, and scenes of his family life.

Epileptic: Suffers from a form of epilepsy that leaves him riddled, but able to experience intense religious euphoria and visions.

Hearing Voices: Be they some supernatural force (in his mind), voices representing his guilt, or something else they come in spurts leaving his mind frazzled, and memories clouded. His conscience guilts him over the actions he took in the hospital to make sure that the people didn't suffer....they didn't suffer, but now Kijo suffers.

Pacifist: Doesn't believe in killing the infected or the "others" suffering from an infection. As it wasn't their fault they became infected. This translates to humans, and animals as well.

Personality: Somber, despairing, and currently grieving the loss of his entire family. A man of faith he spends his time endlessly praying, and arguing

Likes: Generosity, Charity, Religious Discussions, and Kindness.
Dislikes: Cruelty, Cowardice, Misanthropy, and Sadism.

Biography: Adopted by an American Army Officer and Japanese Diplomat he spent much of his childhood in Camp ZAMA. While learning English he was ingrained in Japanese society, religion, and philosophy. He was in Japan until the age of fifteen when his mother got a job working in the Japanese consular office in Chicago. Moving to the United States was a major culture shock in many ways. He found his home in the Japanese community within Chicago attending Buddhist services of the Shin Buddhist Temple in Chicago while holding on to the Shinto beliefs he was raised in.

Eventually, after graduating he would get a bachelor's degree in Religious Studies as well as a Masters's of Divinity at Loyola University. An opportunity arose to be trained in the clinical pastoral services at the university medical center. Koji spent special time helping the families of the dying especially children go through the process of grief. In times of doubt, he often found himself attending one of the many churches nearby leading to a confusing syncretism of practices. Over time he'd marry, and the newlywed couple would have a daughter. She would turn three, and Koji and his wife were in discussions about whether to have her baptized or go into the local Buddhist Temple. This conversation and many more with St Andrews Episcopal Church would grind to a halt on the day the attacks at O'Hare occurred.

The hospital would be slammed with victims hurt during the riots, and people would be forced into an all-hands-on-deck situation. The victims of the riots weren't the only ones as eventually the hospital locked down following a horrific incident in the maternity ward where an infected woman bit her husband's throat out. When supplies stopped being delivered the hospital staff realized they were truly alone. The most critical patients had been allowed to die in hopes other patients would be able to be saved. Eventually, a meeting in the hospital cafeteria concluded help wasn't coming, and the staff chose to poison the last days meal in hopes that a quick death would be faster and more painless than a brutal one at the hands of the infected. Koji looked at his daughter, and wife realizing all of them had no future in this world, but something happened.

Koji ate the food, but unlike everyone else woke up. In a cafeteria of 90 people...one woke up, and the realization hit Koji hard. He didn't die, and the food was wasted so there was no attempt to join his wife and daughter. While suicide violates his religious beliefs he understood why it was the only choice as he climbed to the roof witnessing the carnage below. Thoughts encouraged him to jump, but the guilt held him back. Now he is held out in the Chaplain's office with the food from the cafeteria that wasn't poisoned. The dead are buried in the best way possible, and now Koji waits for an opportunity to leave.

1. That is what I meant to imply more or less. Prison, buy youth corrections technically. Gun charges, assaults, armed robbery, extortion, auto theft, etc. He's been around the ringer quite a bit. Before the catacalyscm I was going to write how he had just gotten out of prison recently but cut it for time constraints.

2. I mean he's about the same height/weight as me so... also I presume any abilities that came with that would be included under his "Thuggish Rouge" skills. Said skill sets was meant to emphasize his abilities as a stick-up kid and general violent gang affiliated delinquent and all that came with that. Hence Things like fist fight and working out would fall under that.

3. The Moon Pack Rangers. Rivals of the West Side Boys. Formed from a union of two older gangs, the Moon Dancers and the Wolf Pack. Prior to the cataclysm had a small but respectable presence in South Side competing with other local gangs(Black P Stones, Disciples, Cobras etc) in the area for territory and influence. Have since fallen on hard times being on the losing end of an attritional war with the aforementioned West Side Boys plus the infected which only complicated matters. Planned on said gang being a large sub-plot plus a bit of backstory for my character to flesh things out a bit. Something to provide a bit of structure/rational for his actions having to return back to his roots and support his old gang in the face of existential crisis being an important part of his character development. That and well considering this is Chicago, gang capital of the nation, were talking about here figured there would be more gangs than just one. having my character coming from and providing them a rival made sense.

???? It's sounds cooler than yours. But yes I will comply but on one condition... You consider doing the same for yours. Like bruh come on sounds like the name was came up by a bunch 8 year olds or some shit. It's just so.... lame uhh.

Like I can give you a god damn encyclopedia of gangs in Chicago. Just find something there and modify it for petes sake. Doesn't even make sense in the context of Chicago where gangs are almost never named after locations(like say in California) unlike sets. Compare names like the following:

Mickey Cobras(Orginally Cobra Stones, and before that the Egyptian King Cobras), Named after their fallen Leader Mickey "The Cobra" Cogwell.

Almighty Vice Lord Nation(the early leaders liked to read the dictionary)

Gangster Disciples(Derived from King Hoovers High Supreme Gangsters)

Black Disciples(derived from King David's Devil's Disciples, named after reading the bible)

New Breeds

Almighty Black P Stone Nation(aka the El Rukns or their older name The Blackstone Rangers)

Almighty Latin Kings

Latin Eagles

Spanish Cobras

Almighty Gaylord Nation(ya... it makes sense in context plus different time period)

C Notes

North/South Side Popes

Chicago Outfit(the Mob)

Four Corner Hustlers

etc etc etc. It ain't that hard man.

I'm sticking with the Ranger portion, referencing the Black Stone Rangers of old, but I can probably fix it up. The Unknown Rangers, Almighty Iron Rangers, The Hillside Rangers, The Terrorville Rangers? Got any you like or should I keep going?

Dude, not a single person in Chicago would join a gang called the Moon Pack Rangers. Sounds like they push knock off Japanese action figures and show up to drive bys in tights from the windows of a Prius.

Plus with how big "smokin' pack", "smokin' opp pack", "smokin' Tooka pack" etc. is in Chicago gang lexicon and drill music, no gang would dare call themselves anything with pack in the name. They'd be the butt of a joke every time they lose a member.

HEY

Atleast Mine sounds original. Plus The Black Stone Rangers, the name that I more or less derived my name from, were one of the largest and most respected gangs in the city at one point. Jeff Fort and his boys number in the 10s of thousands. That's not even counting the Wolf Pack by James Carr which the name also references so shut your mouth.

Rangers never die... they just multiply. Also again your telling me it's better than "West Side Killers"? Reallly? That is the most generic group name Ive ever heard almost though not quite as bad as the New Breeds old name(aka the "Black Criminals").
