    It was too early for Detective Robert London. As he drove up to the brightly lit mansion of Ambassador Cheseler, a sigh escaped his lips. This wasn?t looking too good.

    Sir Harold Cheseler was the English Ambassador to the United States. And he had been found dead in his house not two hours ago.

    Detective London pulled up near the front door, and got out. Noticing the congregated group of officers and detectives nearby, he went up to them.

    ?So, what?s the scoop?? he asked.

    The five others looked at him. None of them spoke, but the silence was filled by the deep voice of Commisioner Henry Lewis.

    ?At 23:00 hours, the maid found Cheseler?s body at the foot of the grand staircase. She called 911 right away, and Officers MacGrady and Elvins were first on-scene. Forensics was brought in, followed by you six.?

    Another Detective spoke up.

    ?What d?we think happened? Anything strange happen this night??

    ?Well,? continued Lewis, ?There is the matter of visitors an hour before Cheseler?s body was found.?

    The detectives all knew what was coming before Lewis said it. London swallowed.

    ?All of you, all six detectives, were invited over for a drink 22:00.?

    The detectives looked around at each other.

    ?And as of now, you?re all suspects.?

    ____

    This is, hopefully, the first Detective Story on the Non-SW RPF. Players may take the role of one of the five remaining detectives, a beat cop, and one very responsible player is needed for Commisioner Lewis.

    The setting is two years in the future, in Seattle.

    Before his death, Ambassador Cheseler had invited the six detectives over to his home for a celeratory dinner and drink. The occasion was irrelevant; nothing stands out about the date. Cheseler was an avid gun collector and reader of mysteries. The dinner was presumably a mere social call, with people Cheseler found greatly interesting.

    A few hours later, Cheseler was found dead.

    This is where you come in.

    Name: Robert J. London
    Gender: Male
    Age: 28
    Rank: Detective
    Personality: London suffers from Dissosciative Identity Disorder. Frequent trips to the pharmacist cover it, though, and a side-effect of his medication is an aloof feeling about him. Other than that, he is friendly, open, and supportive.
    Appearance: http://www.hollywoodjesus.com/movie/se7en/11.jpg
    Armament: Colt Single Action Army
    Bio: Born in Vancouver, Canada, Robert grew up hearing of crime in the Downtown Eastside. He resolved, at a young age, to fight crime. His father was always in and out of the house, being a cop himself. His mother and father would fight, and Robert was often the sole witness to their secret (or so they thought) spats.

    Then the day came when Robert's father didn't return. This event, coupled with the fights he'd seen his parents engage in, resulted in his Dissosciative Identity Disorder.

    After heavy treatment and medication, Robert finally began his training to become a cop. Sadly, Vancouver's crimes fell on deaf ears, for the most part. London went out of his way as the Liason officer to try and inform the public, but he gre frustrated, and moved to Seattle, eager for a new start.

    By 25 he was a fully-fledged constable. A year later, his quick mind and relaxed way of thinking made him a detective.

    Name: Trey Grove
    Gender: Male
    Age: 30
    Rank: Detective
    Personality: Quiet, but talkative when induced, high level of suspicion
    Appearance: Trey Grove
    Armament: Two pistols
    Bio:

    Growing up in the lower-class areas of Washington, Trey's life was anything but easy. His parents were drunks and often paid little to no attention to Trey and his brother Justin, whom Trey could have never lived without. They lived in a one-bedroom house, and Justin and Trey were made to sleep on the floor in the living room.

    But Trey remained optimistic. He always said that he would grow up and be successful, and help what was often called the "ghetto," but, by Trey, was called "home." However, Justin had a hard time maintaining a positive attitude.

    Trey graduated high school as a third honor graduate in a class of 150. But his family was nowhere to be seen at Commencement, including Justin. When Trey got home, he received a disturbing phone call from the police. Justin was shot and killed selling drugs on a street corner. Trey's parents had taken off and left him alone, but as always, he remained optimistic.

    Trey enrolled at Miami University, all the way across the country, and majored in law enforcement. Four years later, he graduated.

    Returning home to Seattle and now working as a detective, Trey Grove no longer lives where he used to, but he will always be appreciative of the neighborhood that developed him into the man he is today.

    OOC: This post assumes that you have read the opener. EDIT: I knew I forgot someone.

    Persona

    As the detectives stood, gathered around Commisioner Henry Lewis, it began to rain. He looked at the assembled group before him - Kaden West, Trey Grove, Anki Jons, Zelda Zeppelin, Dirk Gently, and Robert London.

    "So. Now you know why you're here. This isn't routine, this isn't by the book, and this isn't a crime of passion. This was premeditated, and unlikely as it is that any of you did it, I'll be needing alibis."

    London spoke next, calmly, and with a bit of a drawl.

    "We can all vouch for each other - we left at the same time."

    Lewis hesitated, his brow furrowing. After a moment, he spoke again. "Alright. That's good enough for now. Let's go inside, shall we?"

    It was more of an order than a question, but no-one cared. If they did, they certainly didn't show it. As they walked up to the front door, they could already see the police tape, and forensics people around the body.

    Growing nearer, the stench of blood was evident, and upon arriving at Cheseler's corpse, they could see a small pool around his torso. Jim Wilkins, the coroner, came up to them, his small, pudgy hands encased in white gloves.

    "As you can see, there was one shot, through the heart. He died in minutes, and his blood drained out through the exit wound. Well, that's the simple way of putting it."

    Wilkins stepped down from the grand staircase behind the body.

    "He was shot, and the force of the blow took him off-balance. He slid down the stairs, on his back. Bruising on the back of his head shows that he did not have a pleasant trip down them."

    Wilkins sighed, then looked up at them. He rubbed his balding head with the back of his hand, and continued. "This is where you guys come in. The bullet is gone, as is the casing. Whoever did this knew how to cover their tracks."

    Just as Wilkins stopped, fast, clacking footsteps on the hardwood floor heralded the arrival of an officer.

    "Sir, uh...we..." he said, stooping for a breath, "Sirs, we've...we think we got him."

    ***

    Frank O'Shea was not happy.

    The brawny Irishman was cuffed, sitting on a chair in the kitchen. The detectives stood around him, and he glared up at them. Light stubble coated his face and scalp, and he still wore his waiter's outifit.

    "Look, fer tha last goddam time, I didn't kill the bloody fool, will ya stop askin'?" He swore loudly. His sleeve was rolled up, displaying, prominently, an Irish republic tatoo.

    "You had motive, you had means, how could it not be you?" asked London.

    "I didn't do it, you stupid sod!"

    An Officer led in a Irishman who seemed really angry about this whole ordeal. The officer said he had a motive. She spoke from the far back of the group.
    "Maybe if you delievered the evidence and motive to explain your accusation officer, we could figure out why and how he planned and executed this homicide and give us a start into this investigation." She looked at them both directly. "Innocent until proven guilty-and that's where we come in." She motioned towards all the others.
