    So, I dropped off the face of the earth for a year, but I'm back with a new idea.


    This game is based on the idea of the TV show Alias, its NOT Alias, there is no Sydney Bristow or Rambaldi, though something of similar ideas may come into it. That means there is no need of having knowledge of the show, though it would help. That being said, I realise Alias was not a realistic reflection of the real CIA, but we are using their vision of it, because well, I'm not American, nor a member of the CIA or any secret service organisiation, and I doubt any of you are either. Therefore I reserve the right to do whatever I want. :)

    Plot Outline
    The CIA is putting together a black-ops team, to be called The Dark, in order to face the threat of a new Terrorist organisation known only as Thor. The size of the organisation is unknown but the current leader is thought to be Jeff Gonzales, an ex assassin-for-hire, who has long been on the CIA's most wanted list and responsible for the deaths of at least 5 American agents, possibly more.

    The CIA have asked long serving agent Jacob Manwell to direct the operation and recruit team members.

    Players will form the taskforce designed to track down the members of and ultimately put a stop to Thor. Their agenda is as yet unknown, but it will unfold as the story plays out. As GM, I will post new missions as they arise, and you will play them out.

    1. Obey the TOS at all times.
    2. Please keep all seperate conversations to PM, minimum OOC.
    3. Please try and keep a general eye on grammar, spelling and punctuation.
    4. No god-moding. There will be times when you have to fight off other characters, if you get shot, your not gonna just shake it off. Make this as realistic as possible please.
    5. The GM's word is law. Period.
    6. PM all character profiles to me before posting.

    This is a number limited game, the taskforce will consist of 6 members, not including Jacob - who I will be playing - and my character. Each will have specialties and their talents will be taken into account when tasking the missions. Because of this, please think carefully before joining this game, it's important you can commit to it.

    My characters profile. Anyone else interested? [face_worried]

    Agent Profile:
    Name: Eryn Wellington
    Call Sign: Moonflower
    DOB: 5/14/81
    Place of Birth: Los Angeles, California USA

    Physical Appearance: Eryn is shorter than average, but thin and her long limbs give her a slightly lanky look. Her hair is naturally brown, but she dyes it different colours, its currently black with a bright blue streak through the left hand side. Her hair is shoulder length and straight. Her eyes are a vibrant blue, and she has soft facial features. People often think her mind has wandered, because of the slighlty vague look her face gets when she's concentrating. But her mind is sharp. She has a small scar on her right knee from a child-hood accident and a small birth mark on her lower back.

    Family: Father: George Wellington (deceased)
    Mother: Emily Wellington
    Brother: Jordan Wellington
    Sister-in-Law: Sarah Wellington
    Nephew: Caleb-Jordan (CJ) Wellington
    Mother's Maiden Name: Sim

    Languages: English, Spanish

    Special abilities: Eryn has always had an uncanny ability with maths and can do complicated calculus in her head. She has extensive experience with computer systems and likes to brag she can hack anything anywhere. She has a PhD in Engineering.

    History with the CIA: Eryn was recruited into the CIA straight out of college and quickly rose through the ranks to assisstant to Operation Technician at Langley. She has always impressed her superiors with her quick-thinking ability and cool head in pressure situations.
    Family History: Her father was a mathematical genius, who wrote several controversial articles in his life regarding the space-time continuum. He taught his daughter about maths and his radical ideas from a young age. Her mother was a kindergarten teacher, who contributed greatly to making her such a caring and loving person, that her father lacked. Her father's death, while mourned by his family, was something of a relief to mainstream society. Eryn also has an older brother, Jordan, who is married to a nurse, Sarah. They have a four year old son, CJ.
    Personal History/Traits: While her mother has impressed her kind and loving nature on Eryn, she understands the gruff and often down-right-rude nature her father showed to others. He, in his own way, loved her, though it took his death fior her to realise it. She is hardworking and determined, and worked most her life to earn her father's love. She is fiercely loyal, but not exactly trusting. She is not naive and knows everyone is not what they seem. She has only ever been in one serious relationship in her life, a fellow student in college - Derek Gelding - but he cheated on her after she moved back to L.A and she ended it with a broken heart. She has a very strong work ethic, and would never do anything to compromise her position within the CIA.

    Name: Jayson Bryce (Alias: J. Smith, Jack Hart, Jay Bryant, J.B.)
    Call Sign: Stalker
    DOB: 4-12-80
    Place of Birth: Dallas, Texas

    Physical Appearance: Jayson is 5'11" tall with a slightly pale complexion. He is thin, but stronger than he appears. He has a friendly round face with short brown hair and comforting blue eyes that seem as if they could peer deep into your soul.

    Family: Orphan/Unknown
    Languages: English, Spanish
    Special abilities: The Con "Arts" (Breaking and Entering, Sleight of Hand, Pickpocketing, Manipulation, Hustles, etc.), Wheelman (Driving)

    History with the CIA: Recruited out of Texas prison for consulting work on an area case. When things went bad, Jayson proved useful and rather than fleeing completed the mission with out CIA supervision. He was offered the option to "disappear" and become a probationary member. Eight years of field/undercover work in Southern California and the Northwest, Jayson has proven his worth time and time again as an effective agent, earning him high accolades despite his history.

    Family History: Parents are unknown. Raised in an orphanage until 13, when he ran away to join a street gang.

    Personal History: An orphanage runaway, Jayson joined a small street gang in Dallas at the age of 12 or 13. Over his teen years, he dabbled in drug dealing, armed robbery, and other forms of illegal activity, but found his knack in "the arts" of conning. He also proved to be an exceptional driver, operating the getaway vehicle at every possible chance. Eventually the gang disbanded, and Jayson turned to a solo life of crime, teaming up with other Cons every now and then but mostly operating alone. He earned a rap sheet as long the Earth is round, and eventually got pinched while robbing a traveling museum exhibit. He was brought in as a consultant on a CIA case, and when things went bad he completed the mission with out CIA aide or supervision. Eventually he was signed on as a permanent agent, working extensively in the field.

    Personality Traits: He doesn't like to get attached, his family left him why wouldn't someone else. He likes to joke and have a good time, even on the mission, but never intentionally puts anyone into danger.
