Bio: Hugh Garmany was born in central coast California. He quickly became a dedicated student and an accomplished musician, and in his high school years found a passion in computer programming. When he graduated high school, he enrolled in as a computer engineering major at university, and joined the university marching band. Soon, he switched to computer science, and joined a band fraternity. His passions for both music and software led him to dedicate much of his spare time to developing music and audio editing programs.

Over the summer before his senior year of college, he accepted an internship in Chicago as a software engineer for Chicago Software Solutions. The city was very unfamiliar to him, but he quickly became accustomed to his new surroundings. It was only when several of his coworkers became severely ill that he began to realize that something was going wrong. When the infected began to attack, he sealed himself inside his office with a couple other coworkers until the infected nearby began to clear away. Since then, he has been roaming the city, searching for food, shelter, and weaponry. With very little athletic strength and only rudimentary survival skills, he has struggled to keep himself alive.

It'll take me a little bit to think of an orignal character who isn't over-edgy as the WM and isn't as much of an obvious prick as Silvas, unless you guys want him to go around pissing everyone off.

T-Shirt and black jeans
A pen and a journal
A smartphone (50%)

1 bottle of water (still full)
1 pack of cigarette
A lighter
A taser
A small backpack
A kitchen knife

Skills: Driving, basic military training, physically fit, fluent in Korean and English well, diplomatic, architecture degree.
Weakness: Pacifist, overprotective.

Personality: Friendly, calm, hard-working, and diplomatic, Jung strives for a peaceful resolutions in any conflicts, though he is no stranger to violence he knows that sometimes the benefits are not on his side, so keeping the conflicts in a relatively state of peace is actually good thing.
Likes: Peace, warm food, rain, great architecture, ethics of hard-working.
Dislikes: Bizarre architecture style, hot days, cats.
Fears: Unable to protect others, unable to solve conflicts peacefully.

Bio:

Born in Andong, Jung was not from a rich family, though his family at the very least was slightly richer than most working-class family, his father worked hard as a factory worker. His mother tended at local daycare as a daycare worker, so pretty much the only time they spent together was during weekends and day offs. Jung was not a bright child as well, he tended to passed well at school but pretty much passed it average. He passed through the schools until graduated from high school with good grades, enough to be enrolled into college.

But he passed the first chance for college so that he could be drafted into the military. He didn't quite bothered about college, and considering there is compensation for military conscription in South Korea, the money could be saved for his family's savings or for future businesses opportunities. After 21 months in the Army, placed on reservists and obligated for annual mandatory military training for few days for the next 6 years. By the time he was 20, he went into college and graduated with architecture degree. He developed a sense of protection to others during the mandatory service.

He was employed by the government to supervised constructions at smaller towns, homes, factories, buildings. Small-time and all that, helped local and senior staffs. His compensation money was spent on stock market business and an opening of a food stall for his mother, who grew older and appreciated the gesture. After a while and his mandatory annual training ended, he went for a scholarship of engineering, and got one in Chicago.

He took a leave from the government's job and went into Chicago, worked as Uber driver at the same time to funded his living life. Occasionally, he spent times physically trained himself in local community's gym. He was on his service as a driver when the outbreak hit Chicago. The good news is that USA is the only one affected so far, but the bad news is the same thing. Meaning he couldn't went back to Korea, as much as he wanted to. He went into shelter at his living place, but when the Infected appeared, he fled to the police station, and later, to hospital, with as many as he can carried off.

And now, he's somewhere inside Chicago, wandered around...

I was thinking of a schizophreniac who is more or less aware of her condition, but can't get the help she needs now that society has collapsed. She'd be prone to violence when stressed.

I also have an idea that she'd have had "visions" of zombies before, and now has a stockphrase such as "I said that they were coming, but did they believe me? Noooe! They just called me mad, and I guess I am, but I was right! I was right! I told you this would happen!"

... or something like that.

Pic/Description:
Image

Occupation: Software Designer
Immunity: None
Equipment:
Canvas Backpack containing the following
  • Laptop
  • Solar powered Electronics charger
  • Smartphone
  • Thermal Flask
  • Small Screwdriver Set
  • USB Flashlight
  • Paracetamol/Ibuprofen

Skills:
Analytical: Leon is a quick and highly logical thinker and able to assess a situation with a degree of scrutiny that few others possess, he's able to mentally map out a situation in his head and clearly visualises goals and the means needed to achieve said goals.

Tech Specialist: Smartphone, Laptop, Network and telecommunications systems. Leon is a savant when it comes to building, deconstructing or repairing anything of the sort whether it software or hardware based. Not only this but he is able to modify and adapt existing items for several different purposes.

Survivalist: Although admittedly caught with his pants down on this one. Leon has spent many a sleepless nights browsing the internet for useless and irrelevant information, except for survival techniques and 'end of the world' scenarios, some of this information must have sunk in. Although he was too late to prepare a bug out bag or anything of the sort, he still knows what to look for and where.


Weakness:
Socially Inept: Leon isn't a social butterfly and more of the caterpillar in its cocoon. Leon will rarely go out of his way to speak to anybody and even when he does, he won't say much.
Unathletic: Leon isn't exactly the strongest or fastest of people, neither is he really that unfit either, probably below average on scale.
Blurry vision: Leon needs glasses to see the world clearly, that or contact lenses of which he does not posses or like using.

Personality:
Quiet and Reserved.
Most likely suffers from mild autism.
Savant for all things 'tech'.
Jumpy and easily shocked.
Easily too trusting.

Likes:
Solace, Coffee (Dark), Exploring, Learning, Tinkering/Repairing, Technology and Star Wars
Dislikes:
Large crowds, Waiting, Unknown Variables, the dark and carbonated beverages
Fears:
Death, The Undead, Claustrophobic spaces.

Bio:

Leon was born into the Barett family on a stormy summer night in Norfolk, Virginia. The family, already consisting of his mother, father, two elder female siblings and family dog were well off enough to afford a sizable home and most luxuries that many were never privileged too. His father worked for a construction company and a promotion to a head office managerial position necessitated the families relocation from Norfolk to St Charles, Illinois, this occurred whilst Leon was still quite young and so he adjusted well into his new abode and was at the age where he was ready to start Pre-school, one for 'privileged' children anyhow.

Even at a young age it was apparent that Leon was different from most of the other children, his reclusive nature was simply dismissed as child like shyness and that with time he would see a change, yet never did. Whilst all the other children were playing in the sandbox with toys, Leon was more content to sit alone and pull them apart, much to the chagrin of his parents and carers. Leon didn't make many friends growing up either, only friends of family and acquaintances from around the neighborhood, his social interaction was minimized and he spent much of his time either tearing things apart around the house or reading (even if he couldn't make sense of the words), it took a while before his parents noticed that his behavior patterns were abnormal and were slow to notice he was gifted.

Leon found a niche in his pre-teen years in building remote control model cars, sometimes even repairing others for a small amount of spending cash on the side which he would use to buy parts and tools, he made a workshop from his parents garage and branched out from RC toys to miniature robotics and fixing various electronic items. Leon practically lived in the workshop when he wasn't at school or on otherwise non-voluntary activities, he set up a PC system and between builds he would host LAN tournaments with the small friendship group he found. Come high school he was practically running a small business out of his parents garage, repairing old stereos, tv sets, cell phones, mp3 players and much more. When it came to education, Leon was miles above the rest and was enrolled in multiple high achievers initiatives, took part in multiple robotics tournaments representing the countries most well respected educational establishments.

In college he switched his focus to less hardware oriented engineering, and more software based. Programming languages were second nature to him and within a couple of months he was well versed in several assembly and machine languages, his College Degree was in Software Engineering and right out of college he was offered a placement by a home security firm based in Chicago as a chief software designer, his starting salary alone meant that he could afford a decent apartment in the semi-decent area of town. His parents were within driving distance for visits and the town offered fresh and new opportunities for an aspiring individual, whilst Leon was apprehensive about the hustle and bustle of city life, he was sure it was something that would fade naturally with time. Leon lived for several months in Chicago before the incident and was almost killed during riots that ensued whilst trying to escape the city, which he never managed. The U.S Armed Forces established a quarantine and were shooting to kill, whether people were infected or not, Leon decided to weather out the storm in the safety of his apartment but was shocked to find upon returning that it had been burned to the ground, a few items were salvageable and he gathered what he could from nearby stores, scraping together whatever had been left behind by the looters.

Leon now faces a decision. Escape Chicago and try to find his family among the panic and destruction left behind by the paniking masses? Or remain and hope that help eventually finds its way to him?

Name: Evander Dalton
Nationality: American
Ethnicity: Anglo
Age/DOB: 52 (10/19/1963)
Description: Rather tall at 6'4 and bulky weighing in at 215 pounds, Evander has an overbitten lantern jaw and a thick grey stubble, along with short grey hair. Wearing a dull greenish-blue short-sleeved polo shirt over a white t-shirt, dark grey pants and stealtoe & steel-shank black boots.

Occupation: Game Warden
Immunity: Partial

Equipment:I've put it in table format:

Skills: Despite what his age might suggest, Evander has formidable physical power, especially in his upper body strength, making him a powerful opponent in any match of fisticuffs, especially when combined with his skill at hand-to-hand combat.
Weakness: Evander's mammoth height/weight of 6'4 and 215 lbs make it difficult for him to squeeze himself into smaller spaces, such as ventilation shafts or cupboards to hide in. Thanks to Evander's volcanic temper, he is a poor negotiator, especially when the other negotiating party makes threats against him, and can often cloud his judgement.

Personality: Loud, assertive, irritable, and adamant in his positions

Bio: Evander was born in 1963 in Mississippi, though his family moved to Georgia before he finished middleschool, where he went to highschool, meeting a girl named Virginia, who he asked out on a date, to which she accepted, soonthereafter becoming his girlfriend. Evander attended Georgia university and obtained a degree in forestry in 1985, proposing to his girlfriend Virginia and getting married to her, having a daughter the same year. Evander got a job as a game warden to support his family, frequently putting himself in harm's way to stop poaching and other illegal activities in Georgia's national forests.

Evander remained a game warden for two and a half decades until his wife was killed in 2010 by a gang that had been making money poaching as retaliation for the Game Wardens' arrests of many of their members, which deeply saddened Evander, who was troubled by his inability to save his wife. Wanting to spend time with what was left of his family, Evander moved to Indiana, near where his only child, Jenelle Dalton, lived, allowing him to see her around once every other weekend. Since he still needed money to live, Evander's degree helped him get a job as a game warden in Illinois.

Name: Jenelle Dalton
Nationality: American
Ethnicity: Mulatto
Age/DOB: 31 (August 27th, 1985)
Description: Dark skin with long black hair around an inch longer than shoulder length and brown eyes, wearing a navy blue t-shirt and green jeans with black shoes.

Skills: Jenelle is an excellent driver and knows a moderately high amount about how to maintain and repair cars, she is also somewhat skilled in archery as a result of it being one of her hobbies before the apocalypse.
Weakness: Jenelle has a tendency to let her emotions control her and doesn't handle stress very well, becoming paranoid and rash in stressful situations.

Personality: Jenelle is emotional and empathetic towards others, often letting her emotions get the better of her reason.

Bio: Born in 1985, Jenelle grew up in Georgia and was used to spending birthdays and Christmases with only her mother, Virginia Dalton, since her father was sometimes forced to work on those days, as crime takes no holidays. When she was 19 in 2004, Jenelle moved to the city of Chicago and found work as a taxi driver.

Though Jenelle was a good driver, passengers often being rude, lewd, and/or even dangerous lead her to quit her job and instead find work as a bus driver, though she encountered problems similar to those she had encountered as a taxi driver, causing her to leave that job as well; Jenelle finally became a driving instructor and has stuck with that job ever since.

Name: Felicity Kaufmann
Nationality: American
Ethnicity: Dutch-German-Iroquois
Age/DOB: 21/Oct 8 1994
Pic/Description:
Image


Occupation: Janitor at The Field Museum in Chicago
Immunity: None

Equipment: Big splitting ax, a pickelhaube that she claims, and appears to believe, was given to her by the Kaiser (but she actually took it from the museum), a bowie knife, a walking stick, practical work clothes, tool belt, multitool, zippo lighter, bic lighter, matches, a bag of sweets and nuts, a backpack, string, duck tape.

Skills: She's very handy, imaginative, and quick to learn and adapt.
Weakness: She has schizophrenia.

Personality: Happy and usually calm, tend to be quite crazy when her condition gets the better of her. That manifests itself in her getting violent and hyper active, most of the time still happy, but sometimes angry and afraid. She can be very unpredictable then.
Likes: Harley Quinn, bright colours, summer, sunshine, her work, and generally things that make her relaxed and happy. Recently she's realized that squirrel meat also fits into this category.
Dislikes: Stress, infected people - which she refers to as zombies. She doesn't really like her condition either, but she has learned to live with it and accept it. That is, until the outbreak made it impossible for her to continue with her therapy and get a resupply of her medications.
Fears: Just one thing: Being killed by zombies.

Bio: Felicity was lonely as a child, and was considered odd by other children. She wasn't bullied, but was very often left outside when the other kids played. She was also left outside alone in the cold quite literally, when her mother, who also had schizophrenia, decided to punish her for real and/or imagined offences. Her father didn't care, he was an alcoholic and neglected his daughter completely. Luckily for Felicity, the neighbours notified the authorities. At age 11, she was placed in foster care. Her new family took good care of her.

In her early teens, her illness started to show. Felicity began to hallucinate, thought she saw zombies, and believed that people were after her. It lead to trouble in school of course. Her foster parents decided to hire a private tutor and home school her, and with therapy and proper medication she got her condition under control, and could live a pretty normal life. She went on dates, got a job as a janitor, and moved out to an apartment of her own. Then, when the disaster came, everything changed. Her condition worsened due to the stress and fear created by the outbreak, and the fact that she no longer could get proper treatment. Now she lives like a nomad, fighting for survival, and living off whatever she can find.

I also have an idea that she'd have had "visions" of zombies before, and now has a stockphrase such as "I said that they were coming, but did they believe me? Noooe! They just called me mad, and I guess I am, but I was right! I was right! I told you this would happen!"

... or something like that.

That's paranoia or psychosis... Not schizophrenia.

If you're gonna give a character a mental illness, at least do some research.


EDIT: Apparently I was wrong. Schizophrenics do have overlap, with paranoia in terms of, well.... Paranoia. But given how schizophrenics pretty much hallucinate everything in some shape or form, I find it odd that she'd be hung up on 'zombies'.

I did some reading on schizophrenia after writing that, before I apped. At first I wasn't sure what I wanted, but schizophrenia seemed like it could be what I was going for. And it was, though I had to change a few things I had planned.

As for hallucinations, it's appearantly not as much as most people think. It could be just people's faces changing for a few seconds, so that they look like werewolves (said one patient). With that in mind, I find it quite plausible that she would have "seen" zombies.

But if I mess up, just tell me so I can correct it.

I'll be honest without experience involving a mental illness or a personality disorder, it's a bit hard to write for them. If anything I'd look up videos on what Schizophrenics see during psychotic episodes.

Is it better to be a regular undiagnosed "crazy" person instead? I thought that would be unrealistic, but nothing's set in stone about my character. Except the pickelhaube. I'll never change that part.

Name: Johnny ''Chains'' Daffers
Nationality: American
Ethnicity: White/Caucasian
Age/DOB: 31/19.5.1986
Pic/Description: 1.94 meters tall, blue eyes, 108 kilograms in weight, naturally dark hair with a mohawk hairstyle (parts of hair painted dark green), muscular/athletic.

Occupation: Drug dealer
Immunity: Partial

Equipment:

- Backpack
- Colt 1911 (9mm) x2
- 9mm clips (17 rounds) x4
- Hamburger wrapped in aluminium foil
- Plain black T-shirt
- Leather jacket
- Black jeans
- Army boots
- Pocket knife
- 1 gram methamphetamine plastic baggie x7
- 1 gram heroin plastic baggie x3
- Mineral water bottle (1.5 liters, full) x4
- BIC lighter
- Cigarette pack (18 cigarettes left)
- Glass pipe

Skills: Having been on the ''wrong side of the law'' for most of his adult life, Johnny was involved in plenty of deals gone wrong, which ended with him having to shoot his way out of whatever abandoned building the exchange was going on in. Thus, he is moderately skilled in shooting small firearms, like pistols and micro-SMG's. He is also a good hand-to-hand fighter, due to the experience gathered through the many brawls during his life.
Weakness: Addicted to methamphetamine, he is high most of the time. When high, he is quite irrational and experiences powerful surges of manic energy, often falsely believing he is invincible. When sober for more than a day, he tends to become aggressive, agitated and desperate for his prized substance due to the psychological withdrawal.

Personality: Most of the time ready to snap at people for the smallest of reasons, he is quite irritable. Hardly loyal to anyone except himself, but it's still possible that he may grow attached to someone he deems worthy. Has a rather dark humor, and finds pleasure in hurting others, verbally or physically.
Likes: Most upper drugs (Meth, coke, etc.), industrial metal (music genre), physical exercise
Dislikes: Arrogant people, taking orders, fake friends, not getting what he wants
Fears: Running out of methamphetamine, getting trapped/surrounded by the infected or other survivors

Bio: Johnny was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Dennis and Andrea Daffers. He was the first-born son of the married couple, having a brother born two years after himself, his name was Fred. His childhood was quite a difficult one: Both of his parents were alcoholics and broke, living in a one-room apartment in one of the impoverished neighborhoods in the city. Often facing no other choice, he and his brother would shoplift food from stores or be forced to go hungry, since their parents would spend most of their salaries on alcohol. He stopped going to school around 10th grade, and by then he and his brother were already involved in drug dealing, although back then it was with weed more than anything else.

Fast forward to shortly after Johnny turned 20 years old, he and Fred were arrested after trying to make a deal with an undercover D.E.A. agent. The agent withdrew his weapon, and so did Johnny and Fred. A shootout ensued immediately, with the agent being killed in just under a minute by the duo. Unfortunately for them, there were more agents hidden inside of the old warehouse, who started shooting at them. They eventually decided to surrender after wounding another agent and being wounded themselves.

After the trial, Johnny was found guilty of illegal narcotics possession and intent to distribute, and got sentenced to eight years imprisonment, having all other charges dropped because he gave a full confession. His brother Fred wasn't so lucky. Since he refused to cooperate, he was given the death penalty, and was executed seven years later via lethal injection.

Johnny got out on probation after five years of prison, but got involved in the drug scene again quite soon after. The authorities noticed this only 8 months later, and by then it was too late, he was already on the run. Ending up in Chicago, he got himself some fake documents and continued to do his line of work without further altercations with a government agency.

When the outbreak started, he was inside of a makeshift meth lab, along with a couple of others. They heard some kind of commotion going on outside, and naturally looked out the window. The images before them were full of chaos: people were looting stores, smashing windows and vandalizing cars. It all seemed like a riot to them. Quickly turning on the television, Johnny learned of the infection and the virus that causes it. He turned around to talk to the others, but they already grabbed most of the product and were trying to sneak out without him noticing. He quickly took his gun out and shot both of them in the head, killing them instantly.

He now scavenges the streets of Chicago in an attempt to survive this new plague. He has come into direct contact with the infected a few times, and has figured out that he is immune by now. Or at least that he is a healthy carrier.
