“Alright, I suppose there’s no harm in dropping off these chemicals.”

I had a really bad feeling about this, so naturally, I was against going down there. However, I was in the company of these guys and that beat roaming the halls alone. If it came down to the worst scenario possible, I could outrun some of them.

“Kanji, correct? I’m Anna. Do you know if this king would allow me to leave if I were to bring him the chemicals? I mean, unless he chose you for a specific reason.”

“I suppose you make a good point… My name’s Anna, by the way, just so you’re aware.” I say to Morney as I follow him to the door. At this point, I wasn’t so sure if I could get what I needed from this place. I mean, all of this magic crap is completely out of my league. Surely no credible biologist would be caught researching any of this stuff. On the other hand, if I expose any of this to the public (the media, primarily), I could possibly get a nice reward. It’d be worth a try, what’s there to lose?

I still couldn’t believe we’d come across a talking mouse. Russians were crazy, but not to this extent. Nonetheless, I was really glad I was still human. It would really suck to go out like that.

“So, Mr. Morney, am I here to assist as your delivery girl only, or do you need me for something else?”

I look at the older gentleman as he hands me the container, then I look down at the mouse. Well, it’s a good thing that he has some idea of what he’s doing. The mouse may be cute, but as they say, every rose has its thorn. I follow the suited man out of the lab wondering what mess we may be getting into. I knew that at some point I’d have to return here minus these guys and the talking mouse.

My thoughts are interrupted when Mark begins to question the older gentleman. For some reason, I get a tighter grip on my container and wait for these two to settle their differences.

“I’m with him, this could be a set-up for all we know. I mean, it’s not everyday that you come across a talking mouse.”

I notice a pipe, or what appears to be one, lying on the floor against the far wall. That might come in handy if we get any more odd visitors.

“So I guess this building isn’t full of crazies after all…” I say after watching the men for a few moments. “I would like to know why you’re here, though. I seriously doubt the University sent you” I glance in the direction of the younger guy wearing some paramedic attire, “but I would really appreciate it if you didn’t handle anything so that it can make it out of here in one piece.”

I walk closer to the center of the room to try to figure out where to start looking.

I get in the elevator thinking of going floor by floor to try to find that elusive lab. I’ll definitely run the risk of coming across a great number of inmates, but the reward was well worth the risk. I press the button for the second floor and can’t help but get rather nervous as to what I’ll have to confront once the doors open.

“Interesting. Well, I’m going to go in search of that lab. That’s why I came here, and I’m not leaving without at least some sort of lead.”

I go up to the door to listen closely for the crazy that was chasing us. It was quiet, so I assumed he was gone.

“Any other tricks I should know about? I want to find that lab, but I also need to make it out of here alive so the information can be passed on.”

“Wow, am I glad you’re not trying to kill me!”

I put my keys back in the side pocket of my jacket since this guy clearly wasn’t a threat anymore.

“And yes, I am very interested in what happened here since that was my purpose for coming to this place to begin with. I am a graduate student in the biology field and although my professors didn’t send me, I’m very curious as to the nature of the experiments. But let me not bore you to death with my life story…my name is Anna.”

I extend a hand as I introduce myself to the sane guy.

No no no…they were both chasing me. I don’t think one was after the other, was he?

More pounding. Dammit. Thinking quickly, I grab my set of keys and place each one in between my fingers, then I make a fist. Not too bad for an impromptu weapon, if you ask me.

“Hurry up!” I say as I open the door to pull the guy in by his shirt. Just as quickly, I manage to lock it again before the crazy has a chance to get his hands on me.

Either I had just saved someone’s life, or mine was about to get rather complicated.

“Oh, shit!”

It is the adrenaline that pushes me to run in the opposite direction away from the inmates. At this point, nothing was on my mind but getting away unscathed. Luckily, I notice an open door off to my right and I rush in, locking it for extra safety before leaning against it to catch my breath. I look around to scan for any more threats as well as get an idea of where I’m at.

Topic: Forum Games / Collapse [RP] [Sign-ups/Discussion] Game starts May 30th!

Name: Helena Vynn Amadeus

Gender: Female

Age: 31

Appearance: Slender (130 lbs) and taller than most women; about 5’9. Helena has straight, black hair that falls just above the small of her back. Her eyes are a medium brown and her skin is light, although not to the point where it’d get sunburned just by standing in the sun for a few minutes. Instead of having the flawless face she had as a teenager, the area around her left eye is now severely scarred. The damage is visible from the bridge of her nose to her cheekbone and up to the eyebrow (the look is very similar to Zuko’s).

Helena’s currently wearing a long-sleeve red shirt and black jeans with simple black flats. She wears black sunglasses when in public to avoid having people make fun of her and and also has her hair down in order to hide as much of the scar as possible.

Bio: Helena has had many struggles throughout her life. Back when she was a little girl, her father (James) was in the basement of their home working on a project when she came down to bring him some snacks. He warned her she shouldn’t be there long, and although she was only dropping off the plate, James got distracted and accidentally set off a bad reaction. The explosion wasn’t that big, but it was bad enough for little Helena who wasn’t wearing protective gear unlike her father. She was hit in various areas, but the worst injury was to her face.

After a rather lengthy recovery and quite a bit of therapy, Helena returned to school. Unfortunately, she was blind in both eyes. The kids, of course, were cruel to her to the point where she would spend many hours crying alone in any little spot she could find. The fact that she required extra help in her studies (books in braille, one-on-one lessons) made some kids jealous and as she was sitting alone one day eating her lunch, they attacked her to the point of nearly being knocked unconscious. Since then, serious measures were taken in school to avoid any more incidents like that. The kids responsible were expelled and their parents had to pay a hefty fine, and Helena had a guarding with her everywhere she went from that point on.

Sensory magic greatly helped Helena as she battled to grow more independent. She could walk around like any other person due to her ability to sense mass around her. This means that in her head, she can more or less have a picture of what’s going on around her. Getting around unfamiliar places is hard just because she doesn’t know the specific location of whatever place she’s trying to get to, but otherwise, she does fine avoiding people or walls so that she doesn’t run into them. Currently, she lives alone. James grew sick when she was in her mid-teens and not too much later, he passed away. Her mother died giving birth to her, and since no other relative (if there are any) has bothered contacting her, she misses out on family gatherings any similar events.

Despite a rough childhood, Helena herself never really acted out or got into too much trouble. But, because she hated the fact that people could take advantage of others so easily, she decided to study the human mind and how to, more or less, manipulate it. Helena’s currently a certified hostage negotiator. She knows how to sweet-talk people in order to calm them down to diffuse a situation. Up to this point, she hasn’t gotten seriously injured on the job, but she does feel a bit of a thrill every time she gets called out because she never knows when any of her words will backfire on her.

I didn’t like the atmosphere in here, not one bit. I had just made it into what appeared to be the main lobby of the building. Reception, some shelves, tons of paperwork lying around…nothing that would be of importance to me at the moment. I needed to get to the heart of the information, something that would tell me what exactly these experiments consisted off and the effects it had on these individuals.

Standing around was a bad idea, so I might as well go in search of some library database. The hallway appeared empty, and I walked towards it hoping nothing would jump out at me and kill me.

Name: Anna Kozlov

Age: 24

Gender: Female

Height: 5’5

Weight: 120 lbs

Eye Color: Hazel

Skin Tone: Fair skin tone, leading more towards medium.

Hair: Black, straight hair that falls just above the small of her back.

Bodily: Somewhat toned due to her work-outs.

Clothing: Anna’s wearing a black leather jacket, red tank top, black miniskirt, and black knee-length boots.

Biography: Currently, Anna’s living with her older brother, Dmitry, since their parents and the rest of the family stayed back in Russia. The siblings left their homeland when her brother became a deserter of the armed forces because he refused to follow orders from his superior to engage in some rather “dirty” work. The family could not understand why he’d done such a thing, and Anna was the only one that supported him and decided to tag along when his mind was made up to leave. After a rather rough start, Dmitry got a job as a construction worker to help pay the bills. Anna’s in graduate school studying Biology, and when she’s not in the classroom, she’s a lab assistant working part-time. On her spare time (she barely has any), Anna goes to the gym near the apartment to practice boxing. Needless to say, she’s gotten pretty good at it.

News hit the media about the asylum, and although the majority of the population were in somewhat of a shock, a few individuals were actually interested in the incident. Being the curious being that she is, Anna told her brother about it and expressed interest in going to see just what types of experiments were going on. Overprotective big brother immediately shut down the idea, telling her that she was insane for even thinking of going anywhere near that place. Deciding that this could be a break-through for the field of Biology, she made up an excuse to Dmitry about working late at the lab and headed out to the asylum…

Inventory (No Weapons): House keys with a mini-flashlight attached to it and a fully-charged cell phone.

Skills and Capabilities: Smart and a quick thinker, a sprinter with the ability to also run long distances and as stated above, skilled in hand-to-hand. Anna’s bilingual, first language obviously being Russian. She has a accent that has gotten better since moving.

Starting Location: The South Wing.

Topic: Forum Games / [RP] True Sight [SIGNUPS AND DISCUSSION] [ALWAYS OPEN]

Name: Scarlet Devinson

Gender: Female

Age: 20

Appearance: Scarlet is the typical short, slim female. Her body is well-toned due to multiple beauty pageant attendances throughout her younger years where she trained and learned about discipline and overall wellbeing. She has medium skin tone and jet-black hair which falls just above her shoulders. Scarlet used to have hazel eyes, but now they are a light, cloudy grey ever since she had the misfortune of becoming blind. Typically, Scarlet will be seen wearing jeans, black boots, and a dark-green turtleneck sweater.

Personality: To the public eye, Scarlet is just another trouble-maker bouncing back and forth between the streets and jail. Due to her problematic life, Scarlet has had all hopes and dreams for a brighter future beaten out of her. She doesn’t socialize well, and this obviously leads to trust issues with just about anyone who tries to get to know her a little bit better. She may be tough on the outside, but Scarlet is a rather fragile individual who often finds comfort when she’s in the presence of animals, or “little buddies”, as she usually calls them. Her carefree attitude has nearly gotten her killed multiple times, and even though she doesn’t know it, strangers have saved her life during numerous escalating situations.

Skills: Scarlet is better than most at navigating almost any terrain since she’s had to rely on her remaining senses to get around. Her hearing is near perfect as she usually picks up on sounds when others wouldn’t be able to. She knows basic self-defense and is a rather good runner, both sprinting and long-distance.

Biography: Scarlet comes from a small family in the Seattle area. Her parents relocated to Vancouver, BC when she was just eight years old after her father accepted a well-paying job on the other side of the border. Being an only child, she was somewhat spoiled by her family and received little to no supervision in her youth due to her parents’ trust of her. Scarlet played the “perfect daughter” charade at home or whenever she was in the presence of family, and although she rarely got in trouble, she was not compatible with her well-mannered counterpart. She was much smarter then she led others to believe, and her street smarts were much higher than that of the typical rich kid.

At the ripe age of sixteen, Scarlet went blind. The accident at the chemical plant which permanently deprived her of her sight hunts her to this very day. It was a weekend evening when her then boyfriend, Lucas, snuck her into the compound to simply kill some time. They were walking around when the overnight security guard, armed with what looked like a glock nonetheless, spotted them and immediately commanded them to stop. They were caught off guard and took off running in the opposite direction. The wild-goose chase didn’t last long, unfortunately. Being naturally faster gave Lucas the advantage, while Scarlet was slowly falling behind. Amidst the chaos, she tripped on a loose wire and managed to knock down a few boxes stashed away in the corner. Neatly-stacked canisters were housed within those boxes, and one of them, upon hitting the floor, managed to split open and release some liquid substance which would immediately start releasing fumes. The moment the fumes made contact with Scarlet’s eyes she started screaming. She’d never in her life felt such terrible pain until that point, and she wasn’t even aware of the security guard picking her up and dragging her outside as he called for back-up.

Fast-forward to the hospital where she lies in bed unable to see. Her parents are notified of the incident and they speed off upon hearing the terrible news. Due to the fact that it was raining, and hard to see at it is, her parents had to swerve to avoid hitting a dog and instead, they had a head-on collision with another vehicle. All passengers in both vehicles died upon impact, unfortunately, and the news didn’t sit well when it eventually reached Scarlet. From that moment on, her life took a turn for the worse. She would bounce back and forth from jail and a few local agencies which looked after children. When she was 18, Scarlet didn’t bother returning to her temporary home. She instead found shelter within her high school gymnasium locker room where she would bathe and keep her very few belongings stashed away. It was easy to sneak in as some of the windows were rarely ever locked.

These days, Scarlet has been trying to keep out of trouble and has just recently started thinking about moving far away to try to start a new life altogether.
