Biography: Arturo Ortiga was born in Indonesia, he was attending his kindergarten, elementary, junior high, and high school in Indonesia. His performance in school were relatively average, despite having some difficulties with adapting to new things. His difficulties came from his parents who oftenly told him to be more quiet when he was in kindergarten since he was very noisy back then. He also had a sister whom he does joke with in some moments. However, he hate his sister as she was very forgetful, and also not very reliable when holding up her emotion.

Arturo's relation with his parent were mixed up. He loved them very much, however he doesn't like it when his parent doesn't recognize his hardwork in school. Oftenly than not, his parent fight each others and resulted in a tense situation around the house in which it affected Arturo's grade in school. This caused Arturo to have a depressed life, and thus he turned to video games which affected his score more.

As his parent grew colder to each other, Arturo found himself that he was fixing his video games (Playstation and such) and electronics since his parent was too busy with each other and doesn't have time to dealt with Arturo's broken video games and electronics. He and his sister usually spend their time fiddling and fixing video games and electronics without any instruction manuals. The time that Arturo spent on fixing and fiddling electronics made him learned how to dealt with electronic and he began to be recognized in his class as the person who would usually help the computer teacher dealt with the computer (it's pretty common in Indonesia), thus he earned the nickname of 'Iron Fist' (pun intended as his classmate oftenly joking around).

Later on in his life, Arturo joined a high school in which it was specialized more in world history rather than math and science. Beeing in school that required him to memorized a lot of things increased his long term memory skills since Arturo managed to dealt with memorizing stuff in his high school. In the last holidays before exam, Arturo asked his parent so he could visited some pen pals in America. At first his parent refused because America was a distance place from Indonesia and there will be exam 1 week after holiday, but he managed to persuaded them by saying that it would be a quick visit and he would also try to asked his friend to teach him.

Arturo arrived at Washington DC and goes straight into Chicago by train, then he met his friends in the train station. He hugged his friends and the 3 of them (there were 2 pen pals in Chicago) goes around Chicago. When it was near 4 PM, Arturo decide to call it a day and asked his friend where he could stay, one of them decided to let Arturo stayed in his house for a few days. And so, Arturo Ortiga spent a days after days playing, studying and took a tour around Chicago with his friends.

While Arturo was touring Chicago, they heard about the infection that was going in the USA and across the globe. Arturo tried to call his parent through his cellphone, but unfortunately his parent doesn't answered him. Worried, he check the flight to Indonesia in case that the infection was real. But the flight were mostly cancelled due to the infection. His friend told him that it's better to wait on his house untill things get better, Arturo agreed. After a few days, things got worse, they decided to board the house in hope for survival and was hoping that the infection would finally goes down. Little what they know that things gonna gone worse from there......

Alright, so, for starters, I'm fairly certain basing your survival knowledge on a video game is a sure fire way to end up dead, just saying. About his being Gifted, his bouts of mindless rage sounds more like TB-13, Infected, since they're the ones who attack everything in sight. Having some brain issue is fine, but maybe nix the rage. I've also seen hallucinations done poorly (sometimes good, but a lot of bad) so I hope you know what you're doing. And how many water bottles do you have? Lastly, I ask that his skill with guns be somewhat tame.


Oh, he's fully aware that it's way harder to survive in real life. I've removed the rage thing and I'll make sure that he doesn't shoot like a gunslinger, so to say.

Biography:
Steven Larson was born in Bakersfield, California. His parents, both low-income health workers, worked hard to provide Steven and his older brother Alex with a decent life in the Central Valley. At age 6, Steven took a keen interest to stargazing and, soon after, astronomy. He spent many nights with his father on the outskirts of town, peering through his uncle's telescope at the night sky. In 6th grade, he took up the alto saxophone, and despite an incompetent music teacher, came to love concert and jazz music. By 8th grade, Steven had dropped out of the school band, but switched to tenor saxophone and started playing jazz music with some of his neighborhood friends. During high school, his teachers pushed him to excel in his academics, and Steven had to quit his music in order to bring up his grades. Despite a rough freshman year, Steven pulled himself up to become one of the most academically successful students at his school, and graduated with a letter of acceptance to UC Davis.

His high school experience inspired him to seek a career as a teacher, and with a steadily growing interest in physics, Steven decided to major in physics at UC Davis. When he was attending open house at the university, a representative from the university marching band convinced him to audition as a saxophone player. He spent the summer working part time and practicing tenor sax, relearning skills that had slipped away years before. When he entered college life, time passed quickly. The quarter system, combined with the demands of marching band rehearsal and performances and his teacher preparation program--as well as an addiction to Civilization III and Counter-Strike--kept him constantly busy and engaged. He graduated in 2006 with a well-paying job offer in Chicago as a lab technician. Not one to turn down good work, he jumped at the opportunity.

Steven acclimated to the chillier and louder environment of Chicago as he settled into his job. While he enjoyed the lab work and made sure to find time to explore the city, his passion for teaching remained strong. He studied on weekends and started uploading physics lessons on YouTube. In 2007 he earned teaching credentials in the state of Illinois and began searching for employment as a teacher in the Chicago area. By 2010, he had found a position as a physics teacher at Lake View High School. He worked constantly to inspire his students and make his classes as fun and engaging as possible. He built a potato cannon to experimentally demonstrate kinematics. Having kept up his sax skills in a local community band, he even taught his students about waves through analogies to musical instruments.

After the biological attack at O'Hare Airport, parents began pulling their children out of school, and following the outbreak of riots Lake View shuts down for the remainder of the week. Despite the introduction of riot control and the National Guard, the school did not reopen. Steven began to stockpile nonperishables as an information quarantine fell into place. Fearing the worst, he also spent a small fortune buying a handgun from a clandestine man selling weapons at absurdly high prices. He hoped to wait out the crisis in his apartment and defend himself from any intruders. Internet traffic, while heavily censored, still revealed that something was going terribly wrong all over the country. Gunshots and screams made their way through the walls intermittently. When his supplies began to run low, Steven stepped out onto the streets in search of more, despite neighbors warning him of "infected" people roaming the streets. The city was quiet, save for sporadic gunfire. Biking to the nearest market, he realized that the store had been locked, with crazed individuals pounding at the glass from the inside. Finding another store, already broken into, he looted it of the supplies that he needed. Upon returning to the apartment building, an infected noticed him and ran at him. He ran for his room and locked the door behind him just a couple seconds before it began pounding on the door. By the time that power went out in the building, the pounding, the screams, and the gunfire had long since stopped. All he knew of the crisis was the desolation outside his window, and the increasing number of shambling infected roaming otherwise abandoned roads. For all he knew, he was the last sane person left in the world.

Weaknesses:
  • Obstinate

Accolades:

Personality: Anthony is a dedicated, compassionate, and hard-working man, but he suffers from a stubborn disposition, particularly when attempting to rescue others, often putting himself in dangerous situations. He is also dedicated to his pacifism, even agaonst the zombies, and refuses to maim or kill unless absolutely and completely necessary.
Biography: Born in Cincinnati, Anthony grew up in a lower-class slum, the son of a dead-beat, drunk, and abusive ex-construction worker for a father, and a meek and spineless waitress of a mother, the oldest of five. His dad was sent to prison when he was 12 for beating his mother nearly into a pulp, and was killed shortly afterwards in a prison yard brawl, leaving Anthony to become the provider of the household as him mom recovered. He took odd jobs around the neighborhood, and helped out at the restaurant his mom worked at, barely scraping together enough money for rent, let alone food or utilities, but amazingly, his family made it by.

After she recovered, his mom was largely catatonic and spent her days sitting in the living room smoking and drinking, while Anthony juggled work and school, busting his ass all the way through and becoming salutatorian, and being offered a scholarship to Ohio State University to play basketball, but he declined in order to stay home and continue taking care of his siblings. He joined the Cincinnati Fire Department when he was 19, and quickly established himself as a hard-worker, dedicated and compassionate, but also recklessly stubborn, often putting himself at risk to save others, earning him just as many reprimands as he received commendations.

When his youngest sibling graduated high school, Anthony didn't have to provide for anyone any more, as his mother was dying in hospice care and his siblings were either stable and well-off, or imprisoned, and for the first time in his life he could do something for himself. He decided he was going to receive a degree, just for his own sake, and began taking night classes at a local community college, receiving an Associates in Sociology, the subject that most interested him in his classes.

Having lived through and seen the tragedies of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, and seeing the work that FEMA and other rescue workers performed, Anthony left the CFD after 15 years of service and joined FEMA as a full-time urban search and rescue worker, shortly before the Chicago Outbreak. Anthony was deployed with Ohio Task Force 1 to Chicago to aid in urban search and rescue operations, as well as general aid operations, and performed admirable with his team even in the face of a growing zombie population, along with a more violent surviving populace. Roughly three weeks into the quarantine, Anthony became separated from his team while fleeing a group of zombies, and was left alone in the city, holed up in the burned-out ruins of a mini-mart, still in his rescue gear, and without any way to resupply or contact his team, as his radio was broken in the act of fleeing, and his GPS died shortly afterwards. He didn't even have a backpack or sleeping bag, as they had deployed on a simple rescue operation that was supposed to take a few hours. He only had a few dried MREs and granola bars, a mostly-full canteen, and a few tools he'd packed into his harness, but was left without a tent or sleeping bag, and so Anthony's main mission is to link up with any remaining government forces, or better yet, his own team, and return to rescuing and evacuating civilians.

He always tries to think rationally and likes to view a issue from each point of view before coming to a conclusion. Thomas may come across as 'Geeky' when he talks about a subject he has high interest in.
Likes: Video games, guns, history, military things
Dislikes: Arrogance, rain, malfunctions

Biography: Thomas Martens was born in 1991 in Utrecht, The Netherlands, to a Dutch father and Indonesian mother. At young age you could already tell that Thomas loved video games, he also was pretty intelligent for his age. When Thomas turned 12 his parents got divorced and he moved with his dad to the United States, where they both acquired American citizenship, which after that they moved to Chicago.

Thomas was quick to learn fluent English, although his Dutch accent never went away. In Highschool he earned high grades, found friends with simmilliar interests as him and was luckily enough never bullied. In the weekends his father would often take him out of the city to go to the firing range. After finishing highschool Thomas went to The University of Chicago where he earned a degree in ICT Programming. Not much later, he would find a job at a software development company in the city, which made a very good living. Thomas never really thought of getting a girlfriend.

When he found out the virus he was infected gave him benefits, Thomas would prepare for the apocalypse. He had played zombies games before but the thought that might actually happen in real life never really came to mind. He will try to use the knowledge he got from playing those games in real life, although he knows that 'walkers' are probably far more dangerous IRL.

His vision, hearing and senses have greatly improved and he's able to react to things in mere miliseconds. However, this 'blessing' is also a curse.

Main issue with the bio is his being in Chicago. Coming to do research on human behavior is something an undergrad in university would be doing for a thesis, not a sophomore, and, regardless, if you looked at the OP it mentions the date as being late-July to mid-August for the outbreak, so no school is in secession. Change that. Additionally, I expect skills learned from reading to be sub-par to skills learned by performing as there is a difference between knowing something and being capable at actually doing it. Lastly, if you could maybe flesh out the bio a bit more that would be nice. It's pretty anorexic looking. Looks more like a handful of sentences than a paragraph.


OP NOTE: ROSTER has been updated. If you have been accepted but aren't on the list then let me know. I'm not gonna dig through the OOC looking for people I've missed. Only 2 Gifted slots remain.

Personality: Blunt and straight to the point, Samuel is direct and very rough in his mannerism with people he could care less about.

Dislikes: strangers, liars, thiefs.
Fears: losing all that he has.

Biography:
Born in a conservative family of Irish descent, Samuel learned the values of work and being a man from his father Jack, and the importance of family and responsibility from his mom Valery. Through the years Samuel and his family lived a modest life in Chicago, Samuel going to school with his siblings as his father worked a car shop down town, in fact the shop was right below where the family of 6 lived. Samuel was the youngest of 4 brothers, Jack Junior, Frederick, and Luke, with Samuel being last to be born. Junior worked with his father at the shop while Fred, Luke, and Sammy (as they called their little brother which he disliked) attended school. Luke and Samuel kept relatively 3 years apart while by the time both hasd hit middle school Fred had graduated and gotten a scholarship.

Luke proved to become a trouble maker in his years on middle school, and when Samuel went on his first year in middle school Luke had joined a gang, he was never the smartest of the bunch but Samuel never expected it to go that far. Fred went to study in California and Junior with much contempt kept on his father's shop.

The years went by and Luke kept on with getting involved in illegal activities, starting first in tagging and pety theft to actual extortion and drug trafficking. Things escalated when Jack and Junior confronted him about it and things went sour real fast. Luke was disown and kicked out of the house. Samuel entered high school with much distress with the fact his brother was out on the street putting his life at risk everyday. At times he couldn't cope with it, it was up to Jack and Junior to toughen him up, constantly getting Samuel to learn to do things around the shop and to get a grip on emotions and be a man unlike his brother. Samuel took all of this to heart and never heard of his brother again.

The years went by and Samuel graduated high school, though he did pretty good in terms of grades destiny wasn't kind to him with any scholarships and so he set out to find work, not wanting to waste his life on the shop. He found work first as an Uber driver, and soon after as a construction worker, being involved in projects around the city and gathering more knowledge in building and basic engineering, he accumulated enough money to get involved in actual engineering coasses in a nearby community college and got an bachelor's degree.

Samuel met his wife in college, a women of Australian descent named Jessie. She was a psychology major and the two clicked during anone off conversation as well as routinely seeing each other in between their classes. The two were boyfriend and girlfriend for 2 years and Samuel proposed to her the day she was accepted to Chicago University with a grant of her own. She put herself through University to become a psychologist and she managed to receive the degree , Samuel always on her side. A few years after the graduation Samuel and Jessie had a baby boy who they named Ian.

In 2016 seemingly out of nowhere after a terrorist attack around the country cahos erupted inside the city. With the military imposing quarantine zones and riots everywhere Samuel gathered as much as he could alongside a pistol and a shotgun from his closet and with his wife and 4 year old son they abandoned their home in the city and headed for Samuel's family, with much care walking within the streets chaos dominated the city. People running around letting, killing each other, and others even eating other people, it was madness. Soon they found Samuel's childhood home burned to a crispt and the shop completely looted. Since then, after the comlete abandonment of the city by the military Samuel has been doing everything he can to keept his wife and child safe and to get them out of the city. Not being aware of his natural immunity he has been doing his best to keep a low profile and survive as much as he can for them.

Not an issue per say, but more of a warning, if you don't app for the wife and child as well they'll be considered NPCs, and thus controllable by anyone in an interaction.

Otherwise, I'd like to request you expand on what kind of medications and how much food and water he has.

Something like this would be relegated to a BSL 4 CDC Viral Researcher. Coincidentally enough I made one.

So a master's in biology or microbiology would be the minimum. And if you do make it our characters would probably know each other.
