Okay, this is an idea that a while back I had drawn into a comic book. Came out
pretty good too. This is gonna be a VERY small RP. Three or four people at the
most. I will not be playing a character myself.

The basic premise is you are living on a small planet at one of the outer arms of
the Andromeda spiral galaxy. Humans settled it some three thousand or so years
previously after a millenia long trip through space, fleeing a war ravaged Earth.

The one thing that they had not coutned on when they arrived at their destination
was the eventual discovery of a strange black crystal-like formation which led to
the later development of their police force.

The police on Olith, (the planets name) are known as Shards, and they are kept
separate from the general populace. All Shards are recruited at the age of 15, they
are recruited from the children of other Shards and no, they do not get a choice
about enlisting.

You, are going to be a Shard. You are five years old at present, the story will
progress after the elistment.

All character ideas should be submitted to me in a PM, give characters name,
gender and what you would like to do with the character in the future as he or she
groes and developes into an adult. Also state whether you are happy to be enlisted
or are they going to have to drag you kicking and screaming the whole way?

Edit: Sorry the age is 15, not the five I'd put in before. Your character will be 15
years old during the first few posts, then you'll be 23

Name: Keel
Appearance: Deep blue almost black hair hanging just below his eyes, always in his face. Longer in the front and shorter in the back. Pale green almost white eyes, catlike. I'm going for mysterious here. He's 6'3 and appears to be rail thin, but he actually does have quite a bit of muscle when he wants to show it. I'd say he's somwhere around 190. I'm not really sure what he's wearing I'll have to talk more with you about that.

A glint of light awakens Keel. It is the morning of his 15th birthday, and he knows what is soon to come. He doesn't move except for the slight flutter of his lashes. He just lies there thinking to himself. He drifts thinking so profusely, that if anyone else were in the room he'd be worried about them hearing his thoughts.


A shard? I remain indifferent. Is this my fate? Is there anyway out of it. Do I care? This is my duty. Is there anything else in life?

And there he layed quietly considering the day.

Name: Marin Calahar

Apperance: 5'8" with fair skin and shoulder-length black hair. Slightly angular blue eyes and a lithe build, but attractive. Somewhere about 135-145 pounds... toned muscles. Usually wears blacks and greys, nothing to impede movement.

*Marin awakens with a book in her lap and looks at the clock. Shaking herself awake she reaches for the glass of water from the night before and takes a sip. Fifteen today... and soon to be a Shard. She had no problem with enlisting, it would happen whether she wanted it or not, so better to make the best of it.*

Name: Derek Odene

Appearance: 5' 11", with short cropped black hair. He is well built, without being bulky. He wears a plain white shirt and loose black jeans. He is good looking, with a very stern face, with a chiseled jaw.

The alarm blared in Derek's ear. He slowly opened his eyes and stared at the plain white ceiling. He pulled back the thin white blanket and sat on the edge of the bed. He rubbed the heels of his palms into his eyes.

The alarm still screaming, he put on his white shirt and black jeans. He lay his back on the ground, tucked his feet under the foot of his bed and began doing crunches. When he finished, he flipped over and began doing push ups.

After a thorough workout, he shut off the alarm and went out of the room to get something to eat.

Ooc: Sent Pockets a message just so you guys know because i really want in on this one.

Name: Gaius Eri

Appearance: 5"11, Gaius has eye length light brown hair. He is tall and slender, not built but athletic looking. He wears a white dress shirt with tie, untucked with brown dress pants and comfortable sneakers (such as converse or pumas) he also sports a pair of thin black framed glasses. Hes very intelligent looking, yet very attractive at the same time.


Beams of sun shined through the blinds of the window. Gaius awoke in his boxers and wifebeater, his blanket already on the floor and his hair in a mess as he let out a giant yawn. He scurried out of bed and made his way downstairs opening the fridge pulling out a pouch of Caprisun. He spent about 3 mins trying to poke the straw into the whole then began to sip away carefree, all the time not even realizing that today was his 15th birthday.

Various parent,s gaurdians, and whatnot inform each young person of their
intended destination. The Shards recruitment center/med bay. You are all informed,
despite some of you already knowing, that today will be the day of your recruitment
and alalysis to see if you are worthy of becoming a Shard.

It will not be easy and SOME of you will NOT survive. The recruitment process is
very difficult and more than one potential Shard has been lost during the process
in the past.

It is currently 7:00 am, you are all expected at the center by 8:00 a.m. Be there or face the consequences for insubordination.

John woke up, and tapped the alarm, the car would be waiting at the curb in ten minutes. Then he felt around on his table for his clothes that were laid out, sat on his bed and put them on, keeping one hand on the bed side to steady himself. His foot padded around under his bed kicking out the hard soled shoes he always wore (the tapping sound they made on the pavement or hardwood floors helped him "hear" where walls and such were so he didnt have to rely on his cane as much). After locating his wallet, keys, cane, cigarettes and lighter he walked the 8 steps across the room to the shelf with his modified laptop, in its case. The laptop was a gift from his parents....it wasnt very powerful but he could hook it up to an optics and sensor array and the information would be filtered by a program he wrote into a tonal "language" he devised ( a certain tone for "tree, green, ficus" for instance and the volume of that tone would tell him how close the green ficus tree was to him and the pitch would tell him in what direction etc) ...it still needed alot of work, as it was kind of buggy and he didnt use it that often but with it he could identify people and items at a distance and it helped him feel "normal"...it might be appropriate to bring with him today but at least the case had the next two of the fantasy series he had been reading lately...it was such a bitch to find them in braille. Two steps from here to the door...thirteen down the hallway...

They must just want to have him report, it would be ridiculous for him to be tested, so it must be some kind of formality. Perhaps his father had arranged for him to recieve a desk job or secretarial work

... sixteen steps across the sitting room ....i hear dads breathing in the den, long and shallow...he must have fallen alseep at the computer again...one last step to the door and i hear the car i ordered last night pull up...

ooc: on a random note I think it's funny that no one has taken into consideration
that on this planet they've had three thousand years of technological
advancements on top of the science that let them travel 22.2 light years through
space.

ic: John, as you step outside you hear your fathers breathing change and the
hydro chair he keeps at his desk shifts with his weight. Footsteps echo down the
hall and he's soon standing behind you.

"John," he say's his voice sounding thick with some emotion you can't identify.
"Don't worry about passing or failing. Your mother and I... we just want you to
home safe and sound. Be careful out there and... good luck."

There is a genuine note of worry and fear in his voice now, but the door closes
behind you before you can ask about it and you hear the driver asking if you've
brought any luggage with you.

Gaius, Derek, Marin and, Keel. There are chimes at the doors to your respective
homes, indicating the proximity sensor has picked up an approaching vehicle
or person.

It's time.

Gaius threw on his regular clothing that was laying on the bed room floor, didnt bother with a shower or fixing his hair or any trivial matter like that. He grabbed his laptop and threw it into his backpack then slung it over his shoulder and grabbed his air board. He raced down the stairs and noticed the blinking light on the holocommunicator. Someone had left him a message so he pushed the flashing button and both of his parents appeared before him. They started to tell him how to act and to be good and not to bring shame to the household.
Gaius's parents were both two brillant researchers doing experiements far away, and so he has lived alone since he was 10, but with help from his nanny, a robot he named Franchesca.
He didnt even bother to listen to the rest of the message, nothing his parents had to say would effect him in any way. He made his way to the door as it opened for him and took one last look at his home for the past 5 years then threw his air board down which began to hoover above the ground


Ooc:Marty Mcfly style Bitches!

IN:

He then took off towards his scheduled destination, which was only about 10-15mins from his home. It was only 7:15 and he would probably be arriving too early as it was, but he didnt really care, He figured either way it be too bothersome if he was late.
And As the wind blew back his hair he really had no Idea what to expect when he got there.

(( Yeah, I figured there was technilogical differences, but I didn't want to interfere with your image of the world...but I guess we can just make stuff up...))

As the bell rang, Derek slung his small backpack over his shoulder and approached the door. As a last minute thought, he grabbed a small wrist watch from his nightstand and put it on. As he walked down the stairs in front of his one room apartment, he placed two small buds in his ear. He tapped the screen of the watch and loud music filled his ears. He tossed his back pack into the awaiting vehicle and climbed in after it, not making eye contact with the driver.

Donavan Morgan stood before the recruitment center's gates, scratching the red stubble of his hair looking in. The soft hum of the vehicle next to him was the only sound around. It seemed like he was here first. The driver had picked him up before dawn, and drove fairly quick.

It didn't matter to Donavan. He knew being a few hours early or late won't matter after a dew years. But it did give him a chance to looks around, stretch out his six-foot frame, and watch the others as they arrive.

He was worried about what will happen. And what happened this morning worried him more.

Donavan stood before his mother and father. Both ex-military, and Dad having seen more combat than he cared to talk about. And both looking worried. As Donavan turned to leave his mom hugs him. Looking over her shoulder at his father he meets his eyes, and sees his crystal blue eyes, almost a mirror to his own, watery and on the verge of actual crying.

Donavan shakes his head. "Strength, and honor." He said to himself and continued to survey the complex.

Donavan, you hear heavy footsteps approaching and a truly massive man walks up
to you on the other side of the gate. After a minute the gate silently slides open
just enough for him to step through.

About 7 feet even he towers over the petite woman next to him, a walking mountain
of muscle that was barely being contained by the too small muscle shirt stretched
across his massive chest. As he crosses his arms over said chest Donavan can
see several dark rocks that appear to have been embedded into his arms along
with fiberoptic cybernetics.

An ugly scar ran from his left shoulder down the length of his upper arm to end
a scant inch past his elbow, evidence of a hard life of battle.

The woman topped out at 5 feet even, slender and exceptionally beautiful. Long red
hair hung to her waist and from behind a pair of simple, yet very elegant eye
glasses peered a set of startling yellow eyes. Eyes that pierced Donavan with a
pentrating gaze.

"Morgan, Donavan," she barked, obviously reading from the clipboard she held in
her hands. "This is your enlistment day. Have you been informed of the particulars
of the enlistment process including risks, benefits, and contract terms of service?"

Gaius hopped off of his board as he had arrived at his destination. He pushed a button as the long board retracted into a small cube. The place seemed grey, active, but desolate at the same time.
Gaius put the cube into his back pack as he noticed a massive man at the entrance of the gate.


Well I suppose this is the welcome wagon.

Gaius pushed the hair out of his eyes and made his way over to the figures by the gate

Donavan came to attention as the two approached, but couldn't help but gaze at the woman as they approached. But as she started to bark his name his eyes snapped forward.

"No, mam. I have not been informed about the particulars of this recruitment, but given a brief overview." He replied curtly.

Using his peripheral vision he watched the large man, and beautiful woman, wondering what roll they would play.

The woman scowled, somehow still managing to look beautiful even in anger. She
turned to glare at the massive man next to her. "Why has this recruit not been
informed of the particulars?" she roared fit to do any drill sergeant proud.

"Unknown ma'am," he said. His voice was, just like the rest of him, massive. Like
a giant wave rolling up from his toes, gaining momentum before it burst from his
lips, deeper than anyone Donavan had ever heard. "I will look into it."

"Good." She turned back to Donavan. "Everything will be explained inside. As soon
as the rest of the recruits get here you'll be led in and you'll all be told at once what
will happen."

She spied Gaius approaching out of the corner of her eye and rounded on him,
spinning sharply on the heel of one foot. "Eri, Gaius," she barked again. "Front and
center."

Gaius hurried over taking a spot to the right of the boy already infront of the lady and huge man.


"Better not to piss her off" Gaius Thought to himself.
So he postured himself in a attention position holding his head up looking straight ahead.

The taxi pulled up in front of the building. He pressed his thumb on the scanner, automatically charging it to his bank account. He climbed out of the cab and turned off his music, so that he could hear, but everyone would assume to the contrary. He walked over to the group, but didn't introduce himself. They knew who he was.

as John sauntered up to the recruitment office gate, the single earbud hooked up to the microcomputer scanner array pinging out of his pocket was was wispering in his ear. it sang to him that the complex he was approaching was (measurement) in diameter, and he was approaching the entrance. The strains of the staccato violin (the aural manifestation of the lifescan array) told him there were five people standing twenty three steps away from him by the gate, which the faint synth drum quartet's beat (chemical scan) told him was composed largely of the element boron. The energy readings sang to him in a peircing soprano that two of the people were clearly shards and three quiet tenors indicated that the others were humans of shard stock...recruits like himself...well probably not "defective" like himself . the symphony went on, enumerating various aspects about his surrounding in exacting detail (one of them was wearing earbuds that werent powered on, another had a laptop in a backpack, also not powered on, the two in front were loaded with personal miltary issue electronics etc.)...all except color...he didnt like to be reminded of color. His hand was in his jacket pocket, his index finger between the pages of his book "reading" the braille therin.

the group assembled smelled respectivly of teenage boy, leather, and ceramic...the female shard smelled of blueberry soap.

" i am here to report for duty" he said supressing a wry grin

his finger turned the page and kept reading

*Marin quickly readied herself and was waiting for her ride when it showed up, the vehicle drove quickly and she arrived just as another transport was pulling away. She looked quickly at her surroundings, easily picking out the two Shards. She walked past one boy, who appeared to be blind, and walked up to the two in charge*

ooc: Everyone's here except for Makura. She doesn't have a lot of computer
access though so we'll try to work around it as much as possible.

ic: The woman directed her yellow eyes to each of the recruits standing before her.
"Almost everyone is here," she said, her voice floating softly over the group. When
she arrrives you will all be informed of all the particulars of becoming a Shard."

"In the meantime," she continued, her voice hardening, "you will relinquish any
electronic devices that you brought with you. They will all be returned as soon as
recruitment has been completed and you have been assigned to your barracks."

She turned her eyes onto John. "You may of course keep your listening device,
however all other electronic devices including watches, phones, music devices
and so forth must be relinquished."
