Washington
A US Political RP



Shake with you right hand, but hold a rock in your left
Frank Underwood - House of Cards

OOC I IC I Congress Thread I


2016 is an important year for politics in the United States. This year, the US will have a new president, a new Congress, new governors and politicians to lead it. Do you have the guts to survive this year? Whether you are a senior senator seeking for presidency, a freshman representative suddenly plunged into the activity of DC or an ambitious journalist looking for good scoops in the hall of the Capitol, this year is going to be hard for you. The Political landscape is more polarized than ever, with Republicans and Democrats looking sideways at each other whilst the country is ultimately divided on issues such as ISIS, gay marriage, China, taxes and more or less everything.But beware, for only one rule subsists in the corridors of the Capitol building: the survival of the fittest. Backstabbing, secret deals, questionable arrangements and machiavellic plans are your everyday programme, if you want to keep your head up in this overwhelming world of politics. Meanwhile, the elections are approaching... It is going to be a hard year for you. So, are you ready for it?

Basically, this is a US Political RP in which you will roleplay a Senator or a Representative, possibly a governor, and maybe a candidate for President. It takes place in Washington D.C, hence the name. Upon your election you will have to draft and pass bills, whilst making sure to gain enough popularity in your chamber, and awaiting the next midterm elections, where the majority in senate and the House of Representatives can suddenly change. Apart from the parties (Republicans and democrats) and the places, the characters may not be real. No Trump or Sanders this time! Be creative instead!

Rules
What it takes for this RP to stay fun and not become a kind of battlefield (which is complicated when RP'ing RL politics, even with irreal people).

1- OP is God and the Co-OP's are demigods. What I and they say is to be taken for granted.
2- No RL characters Or at least no celebrities. That's no Donald Trump. I knew you were aching to play Trump, but that's no-no.
3- Good quality IC and Frequent posting preferred. Do not neglect real life affairs either, we know how to be tolerant, but know your IC success will be greatly determined by the quality of your IC posts and your motivation. Similarly, one-liners will have more of a hard time.
4- Respect your fellow players. It is become of them you are having fun. RP'ing alone is no fun, so don't forget that one.
5- To propose legislation, TG the Speaker Co-OP for your chamber. If none, TG me by default.
6- No godmod/flawless/perfect characters We hate perfect people. Don't let yourself be hateful.
7- If they're is anything you think would be a bad idea to do, even if it is not listed, don't do it. Ask OOC if you can, but don't go around meta-gaming in the IC and telling me it wasn't written you weren't allowed.
8- Have fun and be creative. If nothing creative and new pops out, we'll be bored...

NS Nation Name: Rhinocera
Character Name: Ryan West
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 64
Character Role: (Senator, Representative, Governor, etc) Director of the CIA
Appearance: 6'2'', grey hair, heavy build, uses a cane to alleviate a slight but noticeable limp from his left leg, physically fit, green eyes
Character State of Origin: Maryland
Character Affiliation (Democrat, Republican or Non-Aligned): Democrat (though he is not a vocal advocate of any party)
Main Strengths: Intelligent, Charismatic, Well informed, Respected, Ambitious, cautious, wealthy, well connected
Main Weaknesses: Ambitious, above average family issues, overconfident, sometimes considers himself above reproach
Short Bio: (1 to 2)
Ryan West was born in the state of Maryland in 1952. At the age of 22, after graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in international relations and a degree in Economics, then went on to complete graduate school and eventually receive his masters of international relations. While attending the University of Maryland, West met the woman who he would later marry, Marissa. After graduation, he joined the Central Intelligence Agency as a Junior Analyst. He worked with the Agency for about 8 years before becoming a Senior analyst, and was considered one of the most reliable and effective analysts for the Agency. In 1994, he was promoted to the Chief Political Analyst. During his time with the Agency, he had been noted as an especially charismatic individual and had a certain way with people. He was also extremely good at his job, dissecting foreign political systems and connected developments as if he was reading a picture book. 1994 was also the year his daughter, Alicia, was born. West served as Chief Political Analyst for 8 years. In 2002, he was promoted again, to Chief of Congressional affairs. With the Agency at the forefront more than it had been in the past, Congress had wanted a more direct link to the Agency then it had previously possessed. In turn, the Agency had signed an important official, who possessed the ability to navigate the hazardous waters that are American politics, to serve as a direct link between congress and the agency. West was this official. He handled this task rather well, keeping congress feeling informed by the Agency, while the Agency continued to operate relatively unrestricted. If congress had concerns, West either convinced them that they had been addressed, or that what they were concerned about wasn't truly an issue. After a decade of serving in this capacity, during which he formed personal relationships with many prominent politicians and officials within the government, West was appointed to Deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He served in this capacity for four years, administering to the broad number of duties that the position entailed, while also maintaining the relationships he had forged during his time as Chief of Congressional Affairs. Upon President Andrew Hilton's inauguration, one of the initial changes to the Cabinet was his nomination of West as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. West's relationship with members of Congress, including both members of the Senate and the House, allowed for his nomination to be confirmed rather painlessly. The senate believed that having a former liaison between congress and the CIA would allow for more transparency on behalf of the Agency. However, West prioritizes the Central Intelligence Agency's ability to operate independent of Congressional scrutiny and considers it critical that they be allowed to operate without interference and scrutiny from other entities. He believes that what the Central Intelligence Agency does is critical to this great nation's security, and the darker side of what it does is necessary, if not preferable. Fortunately, as the Chief of Congressional Affairs for the Agency, and subsequently the Deputy Director, he succeeded in helping cast a veil of semi-transparency, and hopes to continue to do so as the Director.
Everyone has a weakness, however, and West's key weakness lies with his daughter. Alicia is a 22 year old girl who has a lot of issues, to say the least. West accumulated significant wealth through successful and legitimate investments. Alicia used her access to this wealth in a less than productive manner, nearing failing out of school do too excessive drug use and partying. She's essentially a walking poster board for how money can ruin your life. West constantly finds himself bailing his daughter out of serious trouble, with both the law and shady people. His connections with politicians and officials allow him to make her legal troubles evaporate with ease, while the resources at his disposal have allowed him to handle trouble that less than legitimate individuals wish to cause. It has been suspected on at least one occasion that Alicia's troubles have been rectified by at least some form of intervention from C.I.A resources and at least one group of people who may have posed a danger to her have been arrested after a sudden influx of seriously damning evidence regarding their criminal activities came to light as if it revealed itself. Fortunately, his connections, resources, and influence have allowed him to keep such incidents quite, at least up to this point.

Unfortunately I won't be able to join because my schedule's pretty packed for the next few months. I'll probably lurk around the RP, and hopefully get in on this soon.

Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 64
Character Role: (Senator, Representative, Governor, etc) Director of the CIA
Appearance: 6'2'', grey hair, heavy build, uses a cane to alleviate a slight but noticeable limp from his left leg, physically fit, green eyes
Character State of Origin: Maryland
Character Affiliation (Democrat, Republican or Non-Aligned): Democrat (though he is not a vocal advocate of any party)
Main Strengths: Intelligent, Charismatic, Well informed, Respected, Ambitious, cautious, wealthy, well connected
Main Weaknesses: Ambitious, above average family issues, overconfident, sometimes considers himself above reproach
Short Bio: (1 to 2)
Ryan West was born in the state of Maryland in 1952. At the age of 22, after graduating from the University of Maryland with a degree in international relations and a degree in Economics, then went on to complete graduate school and eventually receive his masters of international relations. While attending the University of Maryland, West met the woman who he would later marry, Marissa. After graduation, he joined the Central Intelligence Agency as a Junior Analyst. He worked with the Agency for about 8 years before becoming a Senior analyst, and was considered one of the most reliable and effective analysts for the Agency. In 1994, he was promoted to the Chief Political Analyst. During his time with the Agency, he had been noted as an especially charismatic individual and had a certain way with people. He was also extremely good at his job, dissecting foreign political systems and connected developments as if he was reading a picture book. 1994 was also the year his daughter, Alicia, was born. West served as Chief Political Analyst for 8 years. In 2002, he was promoted again, to Chief of Congressional affairs. With the Agency at the forefront more than it had been in the past, Congress had wanted a more direct link to the Agency then it had previously possessed. In turn, the Agency had signed an important official, who possessed the ability to navigate the hazardous waters that are American politics, to serve as a direct link between congress and the agency. West was this official. He handled this task rather well, keeping congress feeling informed by the Agency, while the Agency continued to operate relatively unrestricted. If congress had concerns, West either convinced them that they had been addressed, or that what they were concerned about wasn't truly an issue. After a decade of serving in this capacity, during which he formed personal relationships with many prominent politicians and officials within the government, West was appointed to Deputy director of the Central Intelligence Agency. He served in this capacity for four years, administering to the broad number of duties that the position entailed, while also maintaining the relationships he had forged during his time as Chief of Congressional Affairs. Upon President Andrew Hilton's inauguration, one of the initial changes to the Cabinet was his nomination of West as Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. West's relationship with members of Congress, including both members of the Senate and the House, allowed for his nomination to be confirmed rather painlessly. The senate believed that having a former liaison between congress and the CIA would allow for more transparency on behalf of the Agency. However, West prioritizes the Central Intelligence Agency's ability to operate independent of Congressional scrutiny and considers it critical that they be allowed to operate without interference and scrutiny from other entities. He believes that what the Central Intelligence Agency does is critical to this great nation's security, and the darker side of what it does is necessary, if not preferable. Fortunately, as the Chief of Congressional Affairs for the Agency, and subsequently the Deputy Director, he succeeded in helping cast a veil of semi-transparency, and hopes to continue to do so as the Director.
Everyone has a weakness, however, and West's key weakness lies with his daughter. Alicia is a 22 year old girl who has a lot of issues, to say the least. West accumulated significant wealth through successful and legitimate investments. Alicia used her access to this wealth in a less than productive manner, nearing failing out of school do too excessive drug use and partying. She's essentially a walking poster board for how money can ruin your life. West constantly finds himself bailing his daughter out of serious trouble, with both the law and shady people. His connections with politicians and officials allow him to make her legal troubles evaporate with ease, while the resources at his disposal have allowed him to handle trouble that less than legitimate individuals wish to cause. It has been suspected on at least one occasion that Alicia's troubles have been rectified by at least some form of intervention from C.I.A resources and at least one group of people who may have posed a danger to her have been arrested after a sudden influx of seriously damning evidence regarding their criminal activities came to light as if it revealed itself. Fortunately, his connections, resources, and influence have allowed him to keep such incidents quite, at least up to this point.

Accepted. Never had the director of the CIA before in any of the past RPs, we will see how this goes.


I'm hoping it works well. I need to edit the bio a bit, just found a discrepancy. I made the character for another political RP that never actually got to IC, so some of the backstory doesn't work here. Ill fix it though.
