Of course we do live right here and right now which makes this - by definiton - the present. But generally our society checks all the criteria for being 'The Future'.
Advanced artificial intelligence (A.I. for short) on par with or even surpassing the human mind? Check
Technology that is capable of things nobody could even have imagined a few years ago? Check
Prosthetic limbs as well as mental and physical enhancements seeking to make those who can afford them better at anything they pay for? Check
But enough of the gibble gabble, let me show you around.
The settingAnzeigen
The year 2017 is nothing but a vague memory in the heads of the very oldest people alive and for the rest of the population a chapter in their history books. Many problems of that time have been solved or massively improved. Global warming, for example, is being actively combated and even though not everything turned out perfect planet Earth is recovering quickly. Racism, homophobia and sexism only remained alive in the heads of a fraction of society and is almost nonexistent on first glance. Borders within continents have been eradicated completely and if someone still refers to their nationality they usually say they're from "the old Britain" or "the old Germany". Instead people live in massive cities of millions if not billions of people while the space in between those cities is wild and untouched nature in order to allow the planet to recover from the abuse of the past centuries.
The leaps in technology are noticeable in every last corner of society, the most obvious being that droids with a highly advanced A.I. have taken over a number of low-skilled jobs and public services. A large part of the active police force has also been replaced with droids and they regularly patrol the streets. A sight that has also become quite common is to see people with prosthetics or otherwise augmented limbs or bodies. Holographic tablets have taken the space of smartphones and notebooks. Often incorporated into fashionable rings or bracelets or even integrated into the skin, people walk around with holographic screens in front of them that float in thin air once activated.
Another change is the massive expansion of the public surveillance system. In the upper and central storeys of the city every traffic light, every building and every corner of the street is under the eyes and ears of cameras 24/7 and the information is accessible for the droid cops immediately, which has led to almost crime-free streets. Even littering has become so rare that it can almost be dismissed as non-existent.
Most of the societal changes are due to a massive shift in the political landscape. Back when A.I.s have become so advanced that they were as intelligent as humans, scientists and politicians have built a network of the best of them with a single mission for them: Find solutions to the problems we present you with. At first everything went smoothly and the analytical minds of the A.I.s proposed the objectively best solutions for problems like certain conflicts, global warming, overpopulation, poverty etc. to help combat those problems. In theory most problems in the world could be solved or improved that way but the A.I.s soon revealed that the biggest obstacle to a better future for the population is the illogical humanity of leading politicians. So they did as their programming told them to and solved the problem by overthrowing the government and putting themselves in place. But since they also realized that many people would panic at the thought of not being governed by robots, they kept the human government in place even though they barely have any actual power except in parts where empathy is required and in security branches making sure that no kind of A.I. is hacked or corrupted. By now it's an open secret that this is the state of things and there are indeed people who don't like the thought at all. Those so-called "human supremacists" range from being violent and extreme to peaceful protestors but so far they didn't achieve much since even more people also realize that for probably the first time in history their government has made big steps to improve the general wellbeing of all parts of society. Things like loss of privacy are things many are willing to accept.
The cityAnzeigen
The city we are in at the moment is called Europe because it's the biggest city on the European continent with a population of around 400 million people. In order to optimize space, cities were built hundreds of metres into the air, creating storeys instead of distrcits. Each storey has its own set of streets and methods of public transport. By 2017 measures, they're cities all by themselves, built to fit the expectations of the people living there. The higher up you go, the more extravagant and wealthy life gets, while the ground is reserved for the poor and unwanted. Massive underground systems, labyrinths of narrow streets and ducked houses house the poorest of the poor. Those slums share no similarities with the clean and polished glass and steel of the highest storeys and the bright, lifeless neon lights illuminating the multitude of the bustling and pulsing city's greys in the central and lower storeys. In contrast to the "High" and "Central" as the general areas are called and where crime is minimized by the surveillance system and the regular droid patrols, money and power still rule the "Down" and "Underground" areas, cameras are sparse, broken or simply nonexistent and droid patrols are incredibly rare.
Neon GreyAnzeigen
Society might have changed, but certain things probably never will. So even in the future there will always be a demand for personal protection, mercenaries, hired thieves and hackers to do both legal and illegal jobs. From a celebrity hiring a bodyguard to someone blackmailing a big company after hacking their servers, Neon Grey is an organization that can supply people for any kind of job. They have a unique status in the grey zone of the law since the government realizes their usefulness and hires them quite frequently themselves.
Neon Grey consists of two subgroups, each of which have a supervisor. The first group are the hackers. They usually either specialize in hacking A.I. and droids or in getting through security systems, digital locks and the like. Of course the most dedicated hackers have learned or even mastered both. When someone needs a bank account hacked, a firewall taken down or a droid disabled, they are the ones for the job. They also work as handlers for bigger missions quite frequently and supply the soldiers with information regarding surveillance cameras or open locks for them.
The second group - the soldiers - are the ones for the hands on approach. They can be thieves, assassins, security guards and thugs depending on their individual talents.
Joining Neon Grey is fairly simple if you already have talents useful to them. Since they're a big, legally grey organization they don't exactly have to hide and if you come from a military background, used to be a freelance hacker or part of a different mercenary organization there is straightforward application process like with any other company. The second way to join Neon Grey is by chance, which is of course a much more diverse and unusual way but there is a number of members who ended up there due to different circumstances and it's certainly interesting to ask people how they became a part of Neon Grey since it can lead to some pretty bizarre stories if you're lucky.
The organization funds itself with missions. While some of them might be directly assigned, there is also a bill-board screen in the central common room and additionally you can access it with your personal password with all computers and mobile devices. There you can find all the current missions and apply or register for them to your liking. The current status of the billboard can be found in one of the next posts and the very first post in the play, taking on missions is completely voluntarily. Missions you only need to register for can be played freely within the given parameters and mission you need to apply for are led with prompts by the game master.
The headquarter of Neon Grey is located in one of the lower storeys of the city due to the relative lack of surveillance cameras and droid patrols there. It contains a number of offices where deskwork is done, a big common room with a small kitchen, snacks, sofas, a TV screen, the bill-board and a few boardgames and other ways for members to spend their breaks or free time. There is also a living complex with single-bed rooms for roughly 50 people attached to the facility for members who want to live there. The supervisors and the leader are required to live there but they have their own, fully furnished flats on the highest floor, which can only be reached by putting a key and a code into the elevator. Another part of the facility is a gym complex with parts for all sorts of training including a climbing wall.
Clothing and weaponsAnzeigen
To make creating your character easier, here is a brief overview of weapon technologies and clothing normal in this setting.
Clothing styles are largely the same, people still wear jeans, T-shirts, dresses, skirts, shirts and everything else that is worn today but those who dress to the current fashion like to implement glowing or bright accessories, fabrics or make up into their outfits. Other than that, asymmetry is in fashion with pants or skirts cut off diagonally, shirts being longer on one side than the other etc.
Regarding weapons, laser technology has made advancements. Laser Blasters and Laser blades are about as common as bullets and metal blades, though more expensive.

The skill pointsAnzeigen
You may have noticed different skills in the character sheet. Like in many character creators for video games or on character sheets for classic roleplays you are supposed to rate your character's ability to perform that skill on a scale from 1 to 10. With the average being 5, a character that has little to no experience/talent in the skill usually ranges around 3 to 4 points. Lower than that might be because of a disability, a fear or anything like that and needs to be explained somewhere in the sheet. A lot of experience or talent in a skill usually ranges around 7 to 8 points. Higher than that might be because of an enhancement or special training but 10 can only be reached with an enhancement like cybernetic prosthetics or bodymods.
You may put in 66 points in total but you don't have to use up all points if you don't want to. Should you find yourself needing more points pm me and I'll see if your character is a reasonable exception.

Leader of Neon Grey:

Kendra Santana - f - StagAnzeigen
Player’s name: Stag
Character name: Kendra Santana
Gender: female
Age: 29 years
Sexual orientation: pansexual (attraction to people regardless of their gender)
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Leader of Neon Grey, formerly Soldier

Eyes: purplish grey
Hair colour/hairstyle: messy, dark red mohawk
Body: tall (1,85m), moderately curvy with wide, hourglass-like hips and rather small boobs, lightly tanned skin, muscular in appearance due to regular training sessions focussing on back, shoulders, arms, upper body strength and legs, sharp, angular facial features, high cheekbones, pointed chin and nose, full lips, generally quite beautiful, lacks ‘feminine softness’, one of her arms is completely mechanic, similar in colour to her hair and incredibly strong, a number of scars on her torso and one through the left side of her lower lip
Clothing and equipment: usually wears T-shirts in dark, simple colours, sometimes button downs or vests but rather rarely, heavy, robust boots, cargos and combat trousers
Weapons: one handgun blaster with two settings: stun and kill, a flip knife, a swiss army knife

Personality: Kendra is a no-nonsense kind of person. She’s straightforward and serious, especially if it’s regarding Neon Grey, and expects that kind of serious attitude towards their jobs from everyone. She’s not particularly good at motivating people though since she gets her own motivation from her loyalty and dedication towards Neon Grey and her own stubbornness and perfectionist tendencies. So when she tries to motivate others, those are usually the first things she appeals to, followed by threats if she sees that it doesn’t work. That’s mainly due to her lack of sensitivity and - to a certain degree - empathy. She’s not a psychopath unable to put herself into another person’s shoes, but she generally finds it difficult to see through people who are very different to her.
Kendra usually gets what she wants anyways though because she’s incredibly strong-willed and stops at nothing to achieve what she has set her mind to. She especially doesn’t shy away from violence even though she doesn’t necessarily enjoy beating people into a pulp and would never do it to one of her own.
But all of that doesn’t mean she’s always serious and the only thing on her mind is business. She quite likes to relax with friends over a beer or two, talk and laugh for hours, train or find someone to share her bed with. When she takes her mind off work she’s a very adventurous and wild but incredibly fun personality. Hanging out with her will probably never get boring because she’ll always find a dry joke to crack or a usually semi-legal adventure to go on. But even though she enjoys a bit of a thrill, she’s stopped being reckless ever since she became leader of Neon Grey.
Her own individuality is very important to Kendra and she likes to stand out from the crowd but while she oftentimes puts effort into people noticing her, she’s not as self-absorbed as you might think because of her confidence. She’s actually a very selfless person and always tries to approach things rationally to try and figure out what’s the best for everyone or Neon Grey and only second to that does she consider herself. She’s also fiercely protective of everyone and everything that means something to her.
Kendra doesn’t exactly have a high opinion of the government and would prefer it if she didn’t have to cater to their needs to stay in the place they are now. But that’s mainly because she doesn’t have a high opinion of governments and other authorities than herself in general.

Family: father, mother, a brother and a sister (all NPCs)
Partner:
Backstory: Kendra had quite the troubled childhood. Her father wasn’t home a lot since he’s spent most of his time drinking in some bar and then falling asleep on the sofa as soon as he was home and her mother worked hard to provide for her three children. So there wasn’t really anyone who could keep Kendra, her older brother and later her younger sister in check and out of trouble. Her brother got involved with drugs when he was 19 and Kendra was 16 and since she adored him he dragged her into the underground with him. She never got directly involved but she got into some pretty bad company, had friends that weren’t good for her and quit school, all while trying to protect her little sister from sliding down a similar path. Kendra’s main problem was that she didn’t really know what to do with herself and her life. She quite liked the idea of joining a military organization but didn’t want to work for the government. So she began looking for things that were more her style and one of her friends happened to work for Neon Grey. She applied, got accepted, trained with them and became a firm member of the soldiers.
But she was never satisfied with herself and what she could do so she put some money to the side until she could afford getting her arm replaced by a mechanical model that was a lot stronger than a normal arm. It took her a while to get back into work after her operation but she was happy she did it.
After some time rumours started spreading that the current leader of Neon Grey would step down soon and one day he approached Kendra and asked her to apply for the position. She did and a few weeks later the leader really did resign and put her in his place instead. She was 26 by the time.

Group supervisors:
Bot (n) - KratosAnzeigen

Player’s name: Kratos
Character name: Bot (everybody knows this is not their real name but everybody refers to them as Bot)
Real name: Jirka Revendar
Gender: Agender. (Bot doesn‘t identify themself with any gender. They were born female but had removed their breasts years ago.)
Age: 25
Sexual orientation: Demisexual. (They‘re just sexually attrackted to a person after a long emotional relationship with enough trust.)
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Supervisor of the hackers.

Eyes: Bot has blue-grey eyes.
Hair colour/hairstyle: Bot‘s hair is long, straight and black. Just one streak on the left side of their face is completely white. Their hair ends at their waists.
Body: Bot is 1,74m tall. Not exactly slim but wiry, you can see that this asthenic human is not as weak as they look like, especially when it comes to their hands and fingers.
Bot has fair skin and sometimes they look a little pale. Their face is long and clear-cut with high cheekbones and a high forehead.
Judging by their face it is not possible to tell Bot‘s gender and they do not use any cosmetics to make this easier. Only their broad hips would tell people they once belonged to a female person. But Bot cut off their breasts years before. When seeing them shirtless there are still a few ugly scars to see. One of many reasons why Bot doesn‘t go outside shirtless.
Bot has eight detectors in their hands – each one in one finger, only both little fingers don‘t have detectors. They‘re invisible but can be felt by touching the fingertips. Their fingertips are usually cold as ice and underneath the skin you can feel the metal.
These detectors are used to detect different things: One can feel bugs in clothing or other things, this detector can‘t be blocked but works just within a radius of 15 centimeters. Another one can feel junction boxes and electric circuits when hidden behind walls for example. This works within a radius of 30 centimeters. When detected a junction box they can tell if it‘s direct current or alternating current. The fourth detector is used for magnetic fields and to trace their prepetator. The fifth can trace radiation, and the sixth lasers. The seventh detector is used to make the hacking easier – it contents a virus which can be used to infect a system by easily touching and activating it. The detector finds the port for this virus on its own – it is designed to hack A.I.s. The last detector is just a tiny metal detector and works within a radius of 10 centimeters.
Those detectors hurt when they detect something. Bot just got used to it and doesn‘t want to change it anymore.
Bot also has an RFID transponder in the underarm which contains personal information such as their clinical record, different data about viruses and programms they are currently working on, their testament and some private photos. This RFID transponder is individualised and can only be read out by their own reader. This transponder cannot be felt or noticed by any system except ultrared scanners.
Clothing and equipment: Bot favors shirts and hoodies in friendly colors like black, and black. Or black to give variety to their wardrobe. Most of the times they also wear jeans in – surprise – black or grey. And boots or normal sneakers in grey or black.
Usually Bot‘s carrying a few tools around. Their datapad and reader are always with them, in a black, shabby shoulder bag. Usually they‘re also equiped with two different blades in their belt: One is pretty long – 14 centimeters – and one is rather small. Just six centimeters but as sharp as a razor blade.
They‘re not handing a gun or other ranged weapons usually. They‘re just wearing them if necessary on a mission.
Bot also carries several usb flash drives, one or more external hard disk drives and a nightscope with them in their shoulder bag.

Personality: Bot is a silent person who doesn‘t like to be the focus of attention. They prefer to be alone or with one other person to talk to. The only thing they really enjoy to do with other people is hacking – or talking about hacking. They feel secure in this area and are confident enough to spread their opinion among other people.
Making friends is always a bit complicated for them. Bot has people they like to talk to but do not know enough to call them friends or talk enough to them to do so. This is not because they do not care about other people but because they are the kind of person that focusses on one thing and forgets everything else – or is perfectly messed up inside their own head.
Bot is perfectly happy when they have something to work on. They‘re so dedicated to their own projects they sometimes forget to eat for one or two days and most of the time forget to be a good friend but there is no situation in the world when they are happier. This is why they optimized their body for what they love to do.
Besides their obvious lack of space inside their head during a project, Bot often do their best to be a good friend. They are a good listener and belong to those people who feel useful by just lending an ear to another one. The fact that they often mess up friendships because of their own inability to keep important things in mind hurt them a lot and they totally blame it on themself. But even when they notice they got exchanged for a better friend they are still loyal towards their old friends and try to help them wherever they can.
Quotes:
“There are few things as unsettling as a lack of control in an unfamiliar situation.”
― Becky Chambers, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

"Weißt du, warum menschliche Modder sich untereinander so seltsame Namen geben?"
Sie schüttelte den Kopf.
"Es ist ein ganz alter Brauch, der auf die Computernetzwerke vor dem Zusammenbruch zurückgeht. Wir reden hier von richtig alter Technologie. Die Leute gaben sich Namen, die sie nur innerhalb eines Netzwerkes benutzten. Manchmal wurde der Name so sehr ein Teil von ihnen,
dass selbst ihre Freunde aus der wirklichen Welt anfingen, sie so zu nennen. Für manche Leute wurde dieser Name zu ihrer wirklichen Identität.
Nun, Modder - für diese Leute ist nichts wichtiger, als die individuelle Freiheit. Sie glauben, dass nur man selbst sich definieren kann. Als Bär sich den neuen Arm angebaut hat, hat er das nicht getan, weil ihm der Körper, in dem er geboren wurde, nicht gefiel, sondern, weil er fand, dass dieser Arm besser zu ihm passte. Wenn man seinen Körper optimiert, geht es darum, das körperliche Selbst damit in Einklang zu bringen, wie man sich innerlich fühlt. Nicht darum, dass man den Körper optimieren müsste. Ich zum Beispiel - ich verschönere mich zwar gern, aber mein Körper passt schon zu meinem Selbst. Manche Modder wiederum machen ihr ganzes Leben lang weiter mit den Veränderungen. Und nicht immer geht es gut aus.
Aber das ist eben das Risiko, wenn man mehr sein will, als die Hülle, in die man hinein geboren wurde."
- Becky Chambers, Der lange Weg zu einem kleinen, zornigen Planeten

“Aww!” said Kizzy, clasping her hands over her heart. “You’re a physics virgin!”
― Becky Chambers, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

“She paused, realising that she was trying to make an AI feel better. It was a silly concept, but something about Lovey’s demeanour made any other response feel a bit rude.”

Backstory: Bot was born and grew up in the middle class without any problems until they became fourteen. When their body started to evolve some typical female forms they started to feel uncomfortable with them. But since their parents were perfectly open-minded they helped they helped Bot to get their breasts and uterus removed. They also helped to let Bot‘s name change from „Anna“ to „Jirka“ - an unisex name. Two years later Bot‘s parents died by accident. Bot came to an orphanage and got depressive. By this time they started hacking and found their secure haven in it. They finished school with nineteen and joined Neon Grey in the same year. Their detectors came one after another when ever they had earned enough money to afford them. Bot might still be a bit distant but they accepted Neon Grey as their new – big – family. Nine months ago, Bot became supervisor of the hackers and is still a bit insecure about their new rank but giving their best.
Tristan Carter - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Tristan Carter
Gender: Male
Age: 35 years
Sexual orientation: Bisexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Supervisor of the soldiers

Eyes: pale green, darker at the corners
Hair colour/hairstyle: blonde, almost chest-long hair, that he often wears in messy braids, especially while working. Usually, a few strands hang loose on the sides of his face. If he wears his hair open, which only ever happens in his free time, it gives off a vibe of chaotic perfection, like a mess, but perfectly under control as if every strand that’s out of place was put there for a reason.
Body: Tristan has an athletic, muscular body, but isn’t the bulky type. While his shoulders are broad and his chest and stomach are shaped by obvious muscles, he still seems agile. He’s about 1,87 metres tall, so he’s a little above average height, but not outstandingly so.
Tristan has a sharp jawline and high cheekbones, slightly curved brows, notably darker than his hair, and a straight nose. His lips are rather thin and he has a little scar through both of them on the left side.
He has a somewhat caramel-ish skin tone, which is a notable contrast to his light hair and eyes.
Tristan didn’t modify his body too much, at least not voluntarily. The only body mod he had made because he wanted it is an aiming enhancement in his eyes that helps him locate and track targets more easily. The other is a bionic hand (right hand) he got after losing his right hand during his service in the army. This hand assures a tighter grip, almost no pain signal to the nerves, unless important tech parts are damaged, no fingerprints on the right hand, and a punch that hurts way more, due to the harder material. It’s sensitive to touch and reacts to his brain’s commands just like a normal hand, so he’s not facing any issues with it.
Clothing and equipment: Tris prefers practical clothing and usually goes for either army pants, tops, boots and a combat jacket, or sweatpants, tight shirts, because loose ones would get in the way, and sneakers. He still wears his old dog tags, more out of habit than melancholy.
Though he can handle a variety of weapons, he doesn’t have too much of them. He always carries a flip knife with him, and depending on the kind of mission he’s going on either a two handguns and a sniper rifle, als well as a longer knife (for assassinations), or an electroshocker, the knife and one gun (for anything else.)

Personality: Tristan is a calm, collected person. He doesn’t rush into things, nor could he be considered reckless in any way. Before he acts, he double-checks his decisions and he likes things going just as planned. However, if they don’t, he’s able to adapt quickly and shouldn’t be considered cowardly. He doesn’t wait too long, but instead uses the time he has. He is a brave, altruistic person, there’s no way around saying that, but he prefers if he doesn’t have to be. In his opinion, no one needs a hero when a plan is waterproof.
While he is a great leader, blessed with charisma and strong, good motives, he is very distanced from almost anyone, and anything, while working. He sets his mind to a goal and wants to achieve it. Though looking for the best way to get there and minimum losses, he thinks that sometimes, victory indeed stands on the back of sacrifice and that there are bigger things than a single, human life.
Luckily, he isn’t really in the position to make decisions as hard as that. He looks out for his people and makes sure they are alright, but not more than that. Tristan doesn’t like to get involved with the private lives of colleagues and while that grants the people he works with a high level of privacy, it also can make him seem very detached, sometimes indifferent, to an almost unsettling point.
He has a lot of things going on inside below the surface, but rarely lets people see it. Tris is in control of his emotions, at least most of the time, thereby being a somewhat closed book to everyone, but the people very close to him.
Deep inside, Tristan isn’t indifferent or cold towards the people he works with, Neon Grey as a whole, or people in general at all. He’s simply afraid that feelings might cloud his judgement and that is something he doesn’t ever want to happen again. Because, yes, he is afraid of failing like only a person who’s known severe failure can be.
In private, Tris is still a very calm person, avoiding fights and conflict simply by being too collected and too serene to lose his temper. Fighting with him isn’t entertaining, and rarely leads anywhere, because he is a very confident person with enough self-value to stand up and walk away from a fight, simply because it is not worth his time.
He will fight, though, if it’s necessary or hitting too close to home, because there are certain topics, like for instance the well-being of his brother, he could never walk away from, even if that’s not plain to see at first sight.
Tris doesn’t like accepting help and tends to think he has to do everything alone. Seeing that he doesn’t, usually takes him some time and has a chance of making him a little grumpy, but he’ll be thankful afterwards.
Tristan generally isn’t just coldness and distance. He is very protective over the ones he loves, even though he doesn’t let them see it. Not because he’s ashamed of it, but simply because he sees that most of the time those people can very well look out for themselves and he doesn’t want to put himself into the role of a protector, because it might make them feel smaller or reduced to something they’re not.
He’s clever and a good conversation partner, especially if he’s in a good and relaxed mood. Tris is easy to be around and has a calming aura, making it easy to get comfortable with him. And man, does he have stories to tell. He might not be easy to get to, but putting the required effort into it is worth it.
He simply is a person with scars and insecurities like everyone else, but he has a hard time letting anyone see that, or only admitting it in front of himself, causing him to act like nothing is wrong most of the time. Someone so afraid of failure that he’d rather shut everyone out than let them become casualties of his wrong decisions. In the end, though, he has a good heart and strong mind, he is honest, even if it’s an ugly truth, committed, loyal and eager to help people who weren’t blessed with such a fairly easy life as he was.

Family: Younger brother [Captain Solo]
Partner: /
Being raised in the High Society, Tristan never had any worries in his youth, other than which girl or boy to take to prom and the grades he got. He lived an easy and fairly happy life with his family, got along okay with his younger brother and was loved by his parents. He was always talented in sports which made him popular in school, blessed with good looks, which made him popular with girls and boys alike, and also polite and clever, which made him popular with the teachers as well. He never would have had to work hard for good grades, but being the ambitious person he is, and always was, he worked hard for great ones. When he graduated, he had close to perfect scores, a lot of friends and the support of his family; Everything he needed to go places.
Tristan probably could have done anything in the world, and most of the things that would assure him a life as easy as the one he had so far. To everyone’s surprise, though, Tristan decided to join the army and stayed in the service for ten years.
In that time, he rose in rank and renown, but he figured out sooner or later that the army wasn’t where he belonged. It was probably a mission in the slums of a city, the same he also lost his right hand and his closest partner in, because of some wrong decisions he made, that made him realize he wasn’t going to help the people in the position he was in, and that he really wanted to help them.
His parents tried talking him into trauma therapy, saying that he would get his passion for his job back, if only he’d process both, the loss of his partner, and a body part, but that was never the case.
Seven years ago, Tristan quit the service and joined Neon Grey. His military background helped him to become a very good soldier, and working with the organization gave him enough space to earn money, but also do the charity he always wanted to do. Even though his parents never talked to him again after his final decision, Tristan was, and still is, happy with his new job. Happy enough to put effort, time and passion into it. He eventually became supervisor of the soldiers four years ago and even reunited with his younger brother, made some friends along the way. He still helps the poor as much as he can, while also being dedicated to Neon Grey, but most importantly, very happy with his job and generally his life (at least most of the time) once again.

Jax m - StagAnzeigen
Player’s name: Stag
Character name: Jamien “Jax” Revendar
Gender: male
Age: 25
Sexual orientation: bisexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Hacker

Eyes: a piercing blue-grey
Hair colour/hairstyle: Jax’s hair is pitch black but it’s almost impossible to tell what he intended to be his haircut since he cuts it himself and makes sure it looks as messy as possible to disguise the fact how uneven it is.
Body: Jax is just 1,70m tall and therefore rather small compared to most guys. His thin, wiry body shows signs of the desperate attempt to build up some muscle mass along with proof of how impossible that mission proves to be. Nevertheless he’s not unattractive with slender fingers that were practically made for dancing over a keyboard at lightning speed, pale skin and a slim face with a clear jawline, high cheekbones and full lips and long eyelashes that give his face a slightly feminine touch.
Clothing and equipment: Jax is a bit of a fashionista. He likes to wear plainly coloured shirts and sweaters with bright neon scarves wrapped loosely around his neck. Alternatively bright belt buckles, shoe laces or sometimes even a touch of make up are his way to go. You’ll never see him without at least one obnoxiously bright accessory on him.
On his right finger is a ring that contains his holopad and it’s modified to discreetly shine in different colours when his automated scanner detects something that could be of interest to him. It’s also linked to certain movements so that he can perform easier hacks with just a few discrete taps and swipes of his finger.
Other than that Jax is not really someone who believes in gunpower. He carries a small blaster with him that gives enemies a hefty burst of unpleasantness and pain that paralyzes them and makes them go unconscious. It also possibly damages their tech.

Personality: Jax strolls through life with a confident smile on his face and a swing in his hips. On first glance he seems almost careless in the way he carries himself like someone who expects to be able to do anything. But contrary to that first impression Jax is someone who is very acutely aware of his boundaries - he just tries to push them again and again to become better. He’s almost fixated on improving his skills in every area of life which has a lot to do with the fact that he’s just not the person to be extraordinarily talented at anything. Sure he’s an intelligent guy and quick to pick up new skills but he always has to start from the bottom.
After his parents died felt like he needed to fight for everything around him and that’s a habit you don’t just drop. So he sometimes fails to see the easy solution and has difficulties asking for help because that’s just not something he’s used to. In the end though he’s not above accepting help and certainly wouldn’t ever refuse giving it to someone who needs it.
What has shaped his personality most though is his sibling. They have always been close and Jax loves Bot dearly. There is absolutely nothing he wouldn’t do for them and that’s how it has been all their life. It got especially clear, however, after the accident their parents died in. It tore him apart to see Bot depressed and the formerly very shy teenager forced himself into displaying more confidence for his sibling’s sake so they didn’t need to worry about more than they already did. Bullies in school, people misunderstanding them and everything that might be on Bot’s mind was something Jax was determined to take care of and he grew from into his protective and confident role until he didn’t have to play it any more.
Following the newfound confidence was a great deal of sass and snark. Comments he’s kept inside until then now fall freely from his lips and he has started to care less and less about whether or not he might be upsetting or offending someone. He’d never want to hurt anyone with his words but if someone is an ass he doesn’t back down anymore.

Backstory: Jax has lead a relatively easy and uneventful middle class life until he was around 16. Up until that point he was more or less the definition of mediocrity. Shy and friendly, a small handful of friends and grades that could neither be called good nor bad. One thing he always did was look out for his sibling Bot though.
And that’s the only thing that didn’t change when their parents died in an accident and they got sent into an orphanage. He still took care of Bot, did anything he could for his sibling and stayed by their side the whole time. When he graduated school at the age of 19 he didn’t actually have a plan what he wanted to do with his life. Much like Bot he had a certain interest in hacking even though he’d consider himself nowhere near as good as his twin but he wasn’t quite sure if that’s what he wanted to spend his life with. When Bot applied to Neon Grey, Jax followed his example without a second thought because if as long as he didn’t know or care what he’d do he could just as well stay by his twin’s side.
With Neon Grey he then quickly learned that while he might not be a natural talent at hacking, he improved quite fast with talented hackers all around him and the better he got the more he loved being able to open locks or bank accounts, take down firewalls and stomp security systems to the ground with just a few taps of his fingers. Neon Grey is his family now almost as much as Bot is but nothing could ever take the place his twin has in his heart.
Sol Camejo-Feliz - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Sol Camejo-Feliz
Gender: Male
Age: 28 years
Sexual orientation: pansexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Hacker

Eyes: An intense shade of purple. The color is caused by the combination hacking enhancements in both eyes and tattoos on the iris. His original eye-color is a dark brown.
Hair colour/hairstyle: Sol wears his hair asymmetrical with a side-cut on the right side and the hair on the left side diagonally going from short at the back of his head to shoulder length at the very front. His hair color is a brown that one might compare to dark chocolate, however shortly above the top or his ear the long side is dyed a bold purple, whereas the tips are a soft shade of lilac that is almost white.
Body: Sol isn’t tall or broad but not extremely thin or small either. Instead, he’s the average of both, with an athletic, but not outstandingly muscular body and a height of about 1.79 metres.
In fact, Sol has a rather feminine figure with slightly wider hips than most men, long legs and muscles that simply shape his limbs, as well as his stomach, instead of making him bulky or broad.
He has relatively dark skin, completing the “Latino-vibe” he generally displays, and justifiably, given his Spanish origin. His skin and hair color, as well as his originally dark eyes arent’t the only of his “typical” Latino features -- his distinct temperament and strong emotions guarantee that, most of the time, the way he feels about something is plain to see in his expressions.
Sol has a rather round face with soft features, again adding to his generally feminine appearance. As mentioned earlier, the play of emotion is most of the time quite visible and he doesn’t do that good concealing his feelings, as he has a very strong mimic.
He wasn’t shy modding his body and enhancing his hacking skills. Hacking is probably one of the most important things in his life, so every modification was worth the cost.
Hidden in his gloves, just above the wrist, is the projector for his holographic tablet, his main device for hacking. To match that, the tips of Sol’s fingers were modified to be able to type on the holograms more precisely, thereby avoiding any hitbox bugs. The sensors put into them also help him spot weaknesses in minor security systems (like a door locked with a code), given he can touch the main device of it (like the numbers block) directly. Major parts of his fingerprints were, not erased, but hidden under an overlay, making it way more difficult to track him.
Tracking is also much more difficult because of another enhancement: Sol doesn’t just carry his own WiFi adapter in the clips attached to the right side and back of his head, but also his very own proxy server. Both are connected to a power center in his back, embedded into the skin above his spine.
The enhancements in his eyes allow him to save information right from his eyes to an SD card that’s connected to the enhancements via Bluetooth, like taking photos with everything unimportant greyed out and only the part of the picture he deemed important highlighted in color. He activates this feature by blinking quickly twice.
Clothing and equipment: Sol mostly wears skinny jeans and crop tops, making it plain to see how comfortable he is with his body. The tops and shirts he wears often take up the current trend of asymmetrical clothing. The colors range from neon and glow-in-the-dark to plain black. In combination to that, he mostly wears biker boots and leather jackets, or a leather coat that is a very dark shade of purple, making it look almost black.
Sol also wears fingerless gloves, almost all of the time and another prominent feature are his very long, pointy fingernails that are always painted, mostly in neon pink or blue.
His only weapons are two blades about the length of a forearm and a small device that gives out electric shocks, just strong enough to put someone out for about twenty minutes.

Personality: Sol is a cheerful, confident person. He enjoys company and is blessed with the ability to make friends quickly and easily, or generally just find a very good way of approaching different persons. He loves being the center of attention, just as much as he likes to stay in the background from time to time. Some people would say he never shuts up and that can be quite annoying, others would argue in his favor and say that at least things never get boring around Sol. He likes joking and fooling around with his friends, but is able to have deep conversations just as well. It depends on his mood.
Sol is the adventurous type and always up for trying new things, going new places or exploring the possibilities and limits of either his own self or a variety of situations. One could argue that he sometimes lacks providence doing so and could be considered reckless from time to time.
An area he’s never reckless at is hacking, though. Sol doesn’t only see hacking as a job he does and gets paid for fairly well, testing and breaking the limits of A.I.s or droids is his passion. In his eyes, even an art. He does have a taste for anarchy and power and enjoys seeing the government, or big companies for that matter, struggle, but would most likely refuse any job that could seriously damage start-ups or small businesses.
Sol is not a fan of authorities and sometimes has his very own problems dealing with both the idea of a supervisor and that of a leader. In the end, he tends to do what he thinks is right, hence his lack of unquestionable loyalty for Neon Grey.
Sol isn’t the person to leave things unquestioned anyway. Blind loyalty isn’t his style. He takes his time getting to know the leaders he’s supposed to follow and determining whether or not they deserve his respect and loyalty to a point, not to a fault. In the end, his own well-being and especially that of his friends will always be more important to him than the organization he works for.
Sol has a sharp tongue, there’s no way denying that. He’s incredibly sassy and rarely manages to not say things he probably shouldn’t say. That might get him into trouble from time to time, but his quick wits and charisma often get him out just as quickly.
Sol is very passionate and his temperament can be a force to be reckoned with. Enraging him isn’t advisable at all, as he’s also very creative and uses it for personal “revenge” quite regularly. Of course, without seriously hurting anyone within Neon Grey, but sometimes severely damaging a reputation, or two. Besides that, the things he says can get very mean and not everyone is fit to deal with that.
Sol isn’t the forgiving type and can hold grudges for an incredible time. Sometimes, people might even have long forgotten what they upset him with in the first place, while he still acts colder and distanced, sometimes even rude, towards them, in most cases without an explanation.
He is also very passionate when it comes to love, and protecting the ones he loves. For the people Sol lets into his heart, he would abandon everything, even act against his own interests, even though he is a person predestined to stay true to himself.
That being said, it is safe to assume that Sol is a very good and loyal friend. He doesn’t lie to his friends, unless it’s for their own good, always has their backs and if he doesn’t, there sure is a very good reason for it, which he will openly approach.
Being in love with him is a rollercoaster of emotions. There will be a lot of laughter and fun, just as well as passionate moments, or very gentle ones, but a partner will also have to deal with his phases where he’s incredibly sad, or with outbursts of rage. Generally, he is a very loving and passionate partner, but not the easiest one.
Sol is a very strong-willed person and strongly objects to the idea of giving up, whether in physical combat, while hacking or in an argument. He also has the very strong belief that almost everything is possible with enough faith in yourself and the people around you, given you trust them. To him, the word “impossible” is but an excuse, made up by people who aren’t willing or able to really set their minds to a goal in order to achieve it. He believes no one should allow another person to bully them into silence, or make them doubt their own strengths and abilities. Not achieving a goal to Sol doesn’t mean it is impossible to achieve it, he simply views failure as a hint to either approach things differently, get help, or start training until success doesn’t seem so impossible any more.

Family: Sol has family in the part of Europe that used to be Spain, but he’s only sporadically contacting them. He regularly transfers money to them to help them, though.
Partner: Jayden [Stag]
Backstory: Sol grew up in the slums of a city in the part of Europe that used to be Spain. With his father being from the city Europe and his mother having been born in the city they raised him, he grew up bilingual. Sol has two younger siblings and had to look after them quite frequently, because both his parents worked hard to earn enough money to properly care for three children.
In his early youth, his high intelligence was discovered and he first started getting into IT and hacking.
After graduating with almost perfect scores, he was granted a scholarship in Europe and studied IT there. Leaving home wasn’t easy for Sol and leaving his family even less so, but he promised himself that he would use that chance he was granted to get a good job and earn enough money to help his family.
After he finished his studies, again with very high scores, he started to work as a hacker, legally and on demand of the companies hacking their security systems to test their limits, find bugs and improve them. Though his job paid his bills and he was able to help his family as well, Sol got bored of it quickly.
A few years ago he applied to Neon Grey after having heard several stories about them, and got accepted, thereby having found a more challenging work field he is able to enjoy much more, as well as unlock his full potential at.

Cato Davis - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Cato Davis
Gender: Male
Age: 23 years
Sexual orientation: pansexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Soldier

Eyes: bright blue
Hair colour/hairstyle: Cato has black hair that is cut short on the sides of his head, but almost about chin-long on top, front and back of his head. While working, he often pulls the long hair back into a messy bun, in his free time he wears it loose and open.
Body: Cato’s height and slim, athletic figure are pretty average. What does stand out though, is the fact that 80% of his body seem to be bionic body parts. Arms and hands, chest, back and his legs (from the middle of his thighs) and feet shimmer in a silvery-white and are obviously not human, though shaped fittingly for his body. (In that style)
His chin and jawline, as well as his neck also have bionic implants, this time in dark grey. Those implants stabilize the areas they were put into, below that, Cato still has “normal” body parts.
Though his bionic body parts were built to keep him alive and enable him to move, after having lost an arm and both his legs in an accident, the other arm and much of his spine and chest-area being severely damaged, some of them enhance his physical abilities. His legs for instance enable him to run faster than he ever did before getting them. He’s also less sensitive to pain (unless important parts of his bionic body parts are damaged) and generally quicker than he was before.
A huge problem are his lungs though, because the technology there isn’t as good as it could be, causing Cato to have problems breathing from time to time and his stamina dropping from average to quite bad.
The parts of his body that are still entirely human (from hip downwards to the middle of his thighs, his face and a small area above his chest, including his collarbone) are covered in scars. Especially his face has a lot of them. Rather small and even, much to his luck, but that doesn’t make him any less insecure about it.
Clothing and equipment:His clothes often hide his bionic parts away as well as possible. He wears oversized Hoodies and long sweatpants, combined with sneakers and leather jackets most of the time, and often keeps the hoods on to cover his face at least a bit.
Cato carries several knives and a blaster with him, but only on missions. In his free time, the only weapon he has at hand is his brother’s knife hidden in the sleeve of his hoodie.

Personality: Cato is a good-hearted, but not a happy or very cheerful person. While he does his best not to get on anyone’s nerves, he mostly is reserved and quiet, often lost in thoughts he’ll never reveal to anyone. He prefers to be alone, or in a small group of people, because larger groups make him feel insecure and unsafe. He generally is quite jumpy.
Most of the time, Cato is alone, reading. It’s the only time where he can forget everything going on in his mind, focus on something else and feel something close to happiness.
It’s plain to see that Cato is depressed and his sadness is quite apparent most of the time. He cries a lot, even though he tries not to in front of others.
Cato cares about others way more than about himself, has very little self-value or self-respect, and tries hard not to be a burden.
He hides behind a fake-smile, that isn’t as perfect and convincing as he’d like it to be.
Even though Cato shuts other people out of his own thoughts, he’s always there if someone needs a shoulder to lean on, or someone to listen. The few friendships he has, he cares for. They go deeper than just random acquaintances, which is very important to him. The reason he is able to built strong and good friendships, even though he rarely ever socializes and doesn’t reveal much about himself, is that he accepts people the way they are. and also the limits they put on any kind of relationship. For instance, he’ll offer his support to someone once, but if they don’t want to talk about anything specific, especially concerning past or feelings, he wouldn’t ever pressure them to.
If they do, though, he is a patient listener with a lot of empathy, who tries his best to help, or just be there, if that’s the only thing he can do.
He is very loving and caring, but also a person who needs a lot of love and care from others, even though he wouldn’t admit that. He feels left behind rather quickly and gets sad about it, even if his friends never meant it in that way. Sometimes it takes days for him to crawl back out of that hole he falls into when things go wrong, his feelings get hurt or something bad happens.
Cato is a sensitive person and feels strongly with others. Their emotions affect his a lot and he can’t bear someone screaming at him. He tends to run away and shut everyone out when things are too much for him, not because he stops caring or is being mean, but simply as a mechanism of self protection.
Cato hates his “new” body and often wishes his parents would just have let him die instead. He can’t deal with his scars either and mostly tries to hide them as well as possible. He also doesn’t look at people directly, most of the time, because he’s ashamed of his face.
He can be brave and always puts other people above him, thinks their well-being is more important than his and would risk his own life for others without thinking twice, making him somewhat brave and altruistic. Though, his bravery is born of indifference, or even hate, for himself just as much as of his good heart.

God knows one day you will finally see
That scars will heal but were meant to bleed
Do you realize I would lie for you?
Please have my last breath, I would die for you“
(Hollywood Undead ; Believe)

“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others.

Backstory: Cato grew up with rich parents who loved him and made life as easy for him as possible. He had an older brother whom he loved dearly got along great with. As there were only two years between them, they did most things together, had the same friends and were into the same activities.
He graduated from high school with good grades and went to college, but that is pretty much where his happy life ended. Being away from his family, especially his brother, made him feel lost and insecure. It was hard for Cato to find new friends and he missed home. His girlfriend made those days a little easier for him, though.
He was home for the holidays when he and his brother got into a horrible accident, where his brother died and Cato was severely wounded. He lost both his legs and an arm, his spine and chest were damaged in that accident as well.
He was taken to a hospital and put in an induced coma, only living because of machines and with almost no chance to ever wake up again. His parents, who had just lost a son, were given the choice to either turn off the devices keeping him alive, or try something else, in that case several OPs to repair his body with bionic implants and prostheses.
After two years, Cato indeed woke up again. He wasn’t happy with his parent’s decision, but never told them, because he didn’t want to make them unhappy, even though he could barely bear to look in a mirror. He needed therapy and rehab training to learn how to deal with his “new” body and started to at least be able to live a somewhat normal life again.
The repulse for his body stayed with him though, as did the depression starting in that time. The fact that his girlfriend had left him while he still was in a coma, certainly didn’t make that better.
Cato joined Neon Grey a year ago, after leaving his home without any message to his parents, simply he couldn’t bear to stay at home anymore. Everything either reminded him of his brother, the girl he loved, or the life he used to have. He needed change, more than anything.
Jayden m StagAnzeigen
Player’s name: Stag
Character name: Jayden
Gender: male
Age: 29
Sexual orientation: homosexual
Group/Rank within Neon Grey: soldier

Eyes: hazel green
Hair colour/hairstyle: curly, fiery red undercut
Body: moderate height (1,79m), athletic, trained body, muscular, slim hips, medium wide shoulders, strong jawline, high cheekbones, clear facial structures, freckles, light skin,
Clothing and equipment: dark button downs and jeans, combat boots, black leather jacket
weapons: simple handgun (bullets), a wide array of different kinds of blades both metal and laser

Personality: Jayden is fairly easy to be around. He’s friendly, decently polite, likes to have a laugh and is always up for a bit of an adventure. Sometimes those moods can go up to a point where he’s being reckless but he’d never endanger someone who is close to him. But if there’s one thing he can never pass up it’s a challenge. Jayden just loves to bet, to dance around what is possible and take risks whenever he can because anything else would bore him to death.
He’s exceptionally loyal towards those he cares about and if he has to commit a crime or do something morally wrong in order to protect or benefit a loved one he’ll do it without a second thought. After all, he’s someone who follows his heart rather than his head. He dives into feelings, embraces them, loves with unmatched passion, rages like the hottest fire and when he’s cold it’s like you could freeze just by looking into his eyes. Because despite Jayden being a generally warm and cheerful person there is a certain darkness inside him that most people only find out about if they’re on the receiving end. In the end, he is highly morally grey, in fact his moral code goes along the lines of “Do what needs to be done to achieve your goal”. With a certain lust for violence and an almost intimate relationship with his knives, Jayden is nobody in whose way you’d want to stand when he’s determined to get something done.
Quotes:
I don't want to change the world
I just wanna leave it colder
(Breaking Benjamin, I will not bow)

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things we could be
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
Yeah we'll be counting stars
(Onerepublic, Counting Stars)

And I don't think the world is sold
On just doing what we're told
I feel something so right
Doing the wrong thing
I feel something so wrong
Doing the right thing
I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive
(Onerepublic, Counting Stars)

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough
(Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars)

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all
(Snow Patrol, Chasing Cars)

I know your eyes
I know inside
The walls you hide behind
And I saw the truth inside the real you
Because I know you're lost when you run away
Into the same black holes and black mistakes
Taking all my will just to run alone
When are you coming home?

Even if the sky does fall
Even if they take it all
There's no pain that I won't go through
Even if I have to die for you

And when all the fires burn
When everything is overturning
There's no thing that I won't go through
Even if I have to die for you
(Starset, Die for you)

One day the earth will open wide
And I'll follow you inside
Cause the only hell I know is without you
Some day when galaxies collide
We'll be lost on different skies
I will send my rocket ship to find you
Because I know you're lost when you run away
Into the same black holes and black mistakes
Taking all my will just to run alone
Until I bring you home
(Starset, Die for you)

I've begun to realize
That whenever I am with you
You deliver me from the pain in my life
(Disturbed, You’re Mine)

Certainly I felt alive
Strength I had lost was revived
I'm mending inside
And we both know why

Cause you're Mine
I knew I could be whole if you were Mine
I'll vanquish any foe because you're Mine
(Disturbed, You’re Mine)

I see you coming but I won't step back
We don't take kindly being under attack
I hear the fear in every word that you say
I love the danger, let the wolves come out to play
They proudly gather on the street
And they want blood
I'm not a hero but the fight is like a drug
You've only got ten more paces to live
Enjoy your last moments, they're my gift to give
(Written by Wolves, Not Afraid to Die)

I count the final seconds: three, two, one
My fingers twitch around the handle of the gun
I turn and shoot and as the smoke clears the way
Your problem's gone I live to fight another day
(Written by Wolves, Not Afraid to Die)

Hey, hey, hell is what you make, make
Rise against your fate, fate
Nothing's gonna keep you down
Even if it's killing you
Because you know the truth
Listen up, listen up
There's a devil in the church
Got a bullet in the chamber
And this is gonna hurt
(Sixx:A.M., This is gonna hurt)

Your needs need attention
I'm blinded by the truth
Let me release the tension
It's taken hold of you

It's only natural
To free the animal
Locked up inside

The nature of the beast is
You want it
Nature of the beast is
I do too
Let's unleash and cut the creature loose
It's the nature of the beast in you
(My Darkest Days, Nature of the Beast)

Backstory: There’s not much to say about Jayden’s childhood. His father was a secluded, quiet man who took care of his son with a great deal of love. What connected them most was their love for cooking, his father taught him a lot about that when he was just a child.
His mother was different. She was a high-ranking member of the military and often had to leave for months to go on missions but that was just what she wanted. While she valued her family she always seemed uncomfortable in the role of a mother and wife so Jayden never felt like he’d received much warmth from her. What he did get from her was a dream. She always wanted him to follow in her footsteps and become part of the military so before joining Neon Grey that’s just what he did.
Jayden was specifically trained in interrogation techniques and loved his job. But he had been unhappy with the shift in his job to droids doing most of the actual work while people were stuck at desks. So he quit and applied to Neon Grey where he became a soldier.
It was in Neon Grey where he met his boyfriend Sol and in the end he’d say without a doubt that this is the happiest he’s ever been in his entire life.
Liam Carter - m - Captain SoloAnzeigen
Player’s name: Captain Solo
Character name: Liam Carter
Gender: male
Age: 32 years
Sexual orientation: homosexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: soldier

Eyes: light green with a dark ring right around the pupil (optical implant)
Hair colour/hairstyle: brown, messy, curly, somewhat long
Body: 1,81m tall, lean, athletic, but agile, caramel skin tone, oval face, high cheekbones, nose has been broken several times, several scars from knife wounds on torso and arms and one bullet scar (entry and exit wound) in the upper left arm
Clothing and equipment: Liam usually wears functional clothing in everyday life (cargo pants, tight shirts, robust boots or lightweight hiking shoes, combat jacket). On days spent at home, he goes for more comfortable clothes like sweatpants and hoodies. On missions, he wears lightweight body armor in addition to his everyday clothing.
He always carries a knife with him on his belt wherever he goes. On missions, his equipment includes another knife, concealed and stripped to his lower leg. For stealth missions (the type he prefers), he additionally carries throwing knifes, a taser, a piano wire and sometimes poison syringes, vials or powder, as well as a normal handgun intended only for emergencies. For any other mission, he usually carries two handguns (one as backup) and sometimes a large melee weapon in addition to his knives.
The implants in his eyes grant him night vision by amplifying light, thermal vision (infrared) as well as expanding his visual spectrum slightly into the ultraviolet wavelengths. They also allow for optical zoom up to factor four so he can more closely examine things from far away.
Two more implants in his ears amplify sounds in a quiet environment, meaning he can hear sounds like footsteps from farther away and more clearly. If they pick up very loud sounds like gunshots in a closed room for example, however, special membranes protect his inner ear from damage by decreasing the volume.

Personality: Liam generally is a sociable, open person, though he prefers listening over talking. He’s not quiet or shy and will happily enter into any conversation from small talk to discussions about the nature of the universe, but he considers it very important to understand and consider what the other person has to say about the topic, not just get his own ideas out there.
Generally, Liam is more comfortable in the middle of a crowd than on a stage, and he’d rather be a part of someone’s plan than make his own. He is by no means a leader, but he can contribute to any group by listening closely and worrying about misunderstandings and the social climate among the group members. He might offer his insights or advice to leaders, but won’t attempt to lead himself and rather leave than try to change the leader if he’s not content with a group’s leadership.
Liam is incredibly loyal to friends and family and can be selfless to a point where he neglects his own needs to help the people he loves. He’s nowhere near that caring about strangers and has no problem with being cold enough towards them that he can kill people who he thinks deserve it, but if you make it into his heart, he will give you all he has.
Unlike his brother, Liam has an easier time expressing his true feelings to the people he cares about. He takes a lot of strength from his friends and family and isn’t afraid to lean on them if he needs it, provided he’s sure they don’t need his strength more than he needs theirs.
Since his youth, Liam has become more confident and comfortable with his own talents and skills, even when comparing himself to his brother. A big part of that was taking a different path from Tristan’s where Liam learned to do things that Tristan isn’t as good at. In infiltration and espionage, Liam found an area where he could really shine with his talents and personality.
Still, Liam does worry about what the people he loves think about him. He couldn’t care less about strangers, but being criticized by a friend or especially by his brother really hits him hard. He tries to laugh it off and not let them see, but he yearns for validation from friends and family, especially Tristan.
While Liam readily shows emotions like happiness, gratitude and love and has a hard time controlling ones like shame and grief, he usually has a tight grip on fear and anger. Both in his training and the hundreds of missions he’s done over the years, he has learned not to let these two interfere with his work.
Usually, Liam is an excellent agent. He prefers following a plan and having the greatest possible amount of knowledge about the mission like building layouts, strengths and weaknesses of the security system and his opponents, but with sufficient information, he is able to improvise if anything goes wrong. He works well under pressure and sometimes even feels more confident and comfortable on missions than he does in everyday life.
That abruptly changes, however, when people he cares about are in danger. Working with his brother on missions is usually fine since Tristan can defend himself just fine, but if an enemy ever overpowered him and abandoning the mission, however important it was, meant even a slightly better chance to save his brother, Liam would do so in a heartbeat. His emotions could completely override his reasoning and common sense in a situation like that.
Especially with missions involving mistakes he made, the deaths of innocents or dangerous situations for loved ones, they usually catch up to Liam at night. Especially in nights like those, he needs company. Someone he trusts, not to talk, just to be there. Liam hates being alone, especially when he’s weak.
Liam has callouses and scars, physical as well as mental, but he has changed and matured greatly since his youth, which has enabled him to keep control of his life despite some of the things he’s seen and done and fix his relationship with his brother. He’s not without his faults, problems and worries, but he generally is happy with his life and has a positive outlook on things.

Backstory: Liam had a comfortable, easy childhood in the High Society of Europe. He attended an excellent school, had a family that loved and supported him and all the means he needed to explore his talents and interests. He has always been a sociable person, though nowhere near as popular as his brother, and he quickly found a small, but loyal group of friends in school. His brother Tristan was always an inspiration for him and someone he looked up to, but bitter feelings came up sometimes when he realized he’d never be as popular or accomplished as his brother. When Tristan finally joined the army after school, they lost touch rather quickly after a big fight in which Liam questioned whether Tristan really was as altruistic as he seemed or if he only did all of it, including joining the army, so he could impress everyone around him.
Liam got his diploma three years later, but even though he did like the idea of fighting to defend the people, he had never liked the army much. Fortunately, while his accomplishments didn’t surpass Tristan’s, they did pique the interest of a government intelligence organization, where he worked as a field agent for about ten years. There, he received a general combat training with specialization in stealth as well as espionage, infiltration and interrogation techniques. His visual and auditory sense were also enhanced by special implants.
Finally, after ten years of service and some changes in the organization’s leadership, Liam decided it was time for something else. Looking for a job where he could put his skills to use and protect and help people, but wasn’t so reliant on orders from a superior who could change at any time, he found Neon Grey and promptly applied as a soldier four years ago. When arriving there for an interview after his initial application had been reviewed, he was surprised to find his brother there, whom he hadn’t talked to in years.
Since then, they’ve had some time to rebuild their relationship, both more mature and having worked through some of the issues of their youth. They quickly found their deep familiarity with each other had stayed despite being separated for fourteen years and that it could be a great advantage in combat situations. Liam often goes on missions with his brother, where they watch each other’s back, and they have quite the success rate when working together.

Well, here we go! (Oh god I'm so sorry, my poor little girl)
Raven Sanders - f - Captain SoloAnzeigen
Player’s name: Captain Solo
Character name: Raven Antonia Sanders
Gender: female
Age: 32 years
Sexual orientation: bisexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Supervisor of the hackers

Eyes: greyish blue
Hair color/hairstyle: long, wavy hair, dyed a very dark blue (almost black), usually open, but worn in a ponytail if it would get in the way (when tinkering or on a mission)
Body: about average height (1,68m), fit, but not very muscular, rather little curve (small boobs/ass), light complexion, oval face with a somewhat pointy chin
Clothing and equipment: Usually wears jeans and T-shirts or hoodies in simple, dark colors (mostly blue, grey and black) that have glow-in-the-dark prints. Common themes for these prints are wings, geek jokes, alternative bands and gaming. The outfit is completed by several bracelets (leather, string and metal, each given by a loved one or symbolizing certain events) and black sneakers or, on more risky or demanding missions, robust boots.
She also possesses a special implant that taps into her optic nerve and serves as a sort of overlay for what she sees. It also provides the functionalities of a holographic screen and she uses it for hacking through a combination of voice commands, gestures, blinking and actual nerve signals she has trained her brain to associate with the device. She has modified its software, added several layers of security, made her actions less traceable and developed her own tools to aid her in hacking various kinds of systems.

Personality: Raven is a polite, most of the time even friendly person, but she can be very distant. It’s been a long time since she has opened her heart to anyone and she isn’t planning on doing it anytime soon.
If you’re working with her, however, she’s not a bad colleague. Her intelligence combined with long experience let her excel at hacking and when she puts her mind to something, she will work tirelessly and give everything she has to achieve it - and she usually does.
She also knows how to listen and how to motivate people, which makes her quite the decent leader and fit for her position as supervisor of the hackers. You can always come to her with problems and she is generally willing to help, though you might have to ask her instead of waiting for her to offer.
The one thing Raven demands from everyone around her is respect. She absolutely hates being talked down to and she doesn’t appreciate people trying to take care of her. Her independence is vital to Raven and she isn’t willing to give it up for anything - or anyone - in the world.
If someone tries to get close to her, she will likely push them away. She enjoys getting a couple of drinks with friends every now and then and it isn’t too hard to become a part of that loose circle of friends, but she is very wary of deeper relationships.
While it may seem that she just doesn’t like or trust people, she actually is very lonely, even though she doesn’t admit that to herself. She is just calloused and still heavily influenced by the traumatic losses of her past. She longs to have someone to fill the holes in her heart, but at the same time she is scared to form any sort of meaningful bond because it might mean losing that person again. If someone can make it into her heart, however, she will fiercely protect them with all she has and give everything for them.
Raven also harbors a strong distaste for any kind of authority and big, strict hierarchies. This includes major corporations as well as the government. While she generally carries out contracts regardless of who they’re from, there’s certain things she may just refuse to do and she is willing to accept the consequences for that.
Quotes: “Some may yield
But me I never could be tamed”

„Family is worth dying for, killing for. Fighting for them is all that keeps us going when everything else is gone.“
- A Torch Against the Night (Sabaa Tahir)

“Flies with a broken wing, she's ever so graceful, so like an angel,
but I see, tears flow quietly.“
- The Beautiful Ones (Poets of the Fall)

“Why do we sacrifice the beautiful ones?
How do you break a heart of gold?
Why do we sacrifice our beautiful souls?

Backstory: Raven grew up an altruistic, idealistic girl, though she has always had a distaste for authorities of any kind. She would be the person to punch a bully in the face and get detention for it or to hack into the school servers to change a grade given by an unfair teacher. Early in her life, she developed an interest in technology, especially computers. With her parent’s support, she got her first computer at an early age and soon taught herself how to program and, later, how to hack. During her later high school years, she joined an organization that worked for justice in the lower, poorer parts of Europe - not always with legal means. There, Raven further developed her hacking skills, mentored by more experienced members of the organization that soon became like a second family to her. She even fell in love with one of them, Marcie, who was two years older than her and taught her a lot about hacking as well as being more confident and believing in herself. This was Raven’s first relationship with someone of the same gender and greatly helped her mature as a person and explore her sexuality. This meaningful relationship was brought to a terrible end just two years later, however, when Marcie and several other members of the organization died in an “accident” that Raven suspected (and later confirmed) to have been arranged by one of the corporations the organization was currently fighting. Raven had just started college when it happened, but having lost so many people who meant so much to her, her second family and possibly the love of her life, her grief and anger prevented her from continuing. In the following months, after a short period of mourning, all she could think about was revenge. She worked hard, day and night, to find out who had ordered and executed the “accident” that had killed her loved ones. She bribed, blackmailed and leaked information until the life of every person related to the accident had been completely ruined or they had ended up dead, though she didn’t kill anyone with her own hands. But she found that revenge couldn’t fill the hole in her heart - it had left her even emptier than before. The grief, the anger and her revenge had changed Raven greatly, however. She found she couldn’t bring herself to help the people in the lower levels of the city anymore, knowing the criminals who had arranged the “accident” had lived there and killed the people who were helping them. Wherever she looked - up or down - she could only see the worst in people. Without formal education, she really had nowhere to go. She finally decided to apply to Neon Grey, where she could put her considerable skills to use and had the power to take on the authorities that had failed her and the corporations she despised when the right contract came in. There, she proved very good at what she did and soon built a reputation. When the old supervisor of the hackers passed away a couple of years after she had joined, she was chosen to be his successor. Since then, she has worked tirelessly for Neon Grey, both under the old leader as well as Kendra, neither for altruistic reasons like a younger Raven did, nor for money or power like some other Neon Grey members do, but simply as an agent of chaos in a system that has failed her.

[spoiler=Raven Sanders - f - Captain Solo]
[b]Player’s name:[/b] Captain Solo
[b]Character name:[/b] Raven Antonia Sanders
[b]Gender:[/b] female
[b]Age:[/b] 32 years
[b]Sexual orientation:[/b] bisexual
[b]Rank/Group within Neon Grey:[/b] Supervisor of the hackers

[b]Eyes:[/b] greyish blue
[b]Hair color/hairstyle:[/b] long, wavy hair, dyed a very dark blue (almost black), usually open, but worn in a ponytail if it would get in the way (when tinkering or on a mission)
[b]Body:[/b] about average height (1,68m), fit, but not very muscular, rather little curve (small boobs/ass), light complexion, oval face with a somewhat pointy chin
[b]Clothing and equipment:[/b] Usually wears jeans and T-shirts or hoodies in simple, dark colors (mostly blue, grey and black) that have glow-in-the-dark prints. Common themes for these prints are wings, geek jokes, alternative bands and gaming. The outfit is completed by several bracelets (leather, string and metal, each given by a loved one or symbolizing certain events) and black sneakers or, on more risky or demanding missions, robust boots.
She also possesses a special implant that taps into her optic nerve and serves as a sort of overlay for what she sees. It also provides the functionalities of a holographic screen and she uses it for hacking through a combination of voice commands, gestures, blinking and actual nerve signals she has trained her brain to associate with the device. She has modified its software, added several layers of security, made her actions less traceable and developed her own tools to aid her in hacking various kinds of systems.

[b]Personality:[/b] Raven is a polite, most of the time even friendly person, but she can be very distant. It’s been a long time since she has opened her heart to anyone and she isn’t planning on doing it anytime soon.
If you’re working with her, however, she’s not a bad colleague. Her intelligence combined with long experience let her excel at hacking and when she puts her mind to something, she will work tirelessly and give everything she has to achieve it - and she usually does.
She also knows how to listen and how to motivate people, which makes her quite the decent leader and fit for her position as supervisor of the hackers. You can always come to her with problems and she is generally willing to help, though you might have to ask her instead of waiting for her to offer.
The one thing Raven demands from everyone around her is respect. She absolutely hates being talked down to and she doesn’t appreciate people trying to take care of her. Her independence is vital to Raven and she isn’t willing to give it up for anything - or anyone - in the world.
If someone tries to get close to her, she will likely push them away. She enjoys getting a couple of drinks with friends every now and then and it isn’t too hard to become a part of that loose circle of friends, but she is very wary of deeper relationships.
While it may seem that she just doesn’t like or trust people, she actually is very lonely, even though she doesn’t admit that to herself. She is just calloused and still heavily influenced by the traumatic losses of her past. She longs to have someone to fill the holes in her heart, but at the same time she is scared to form any sort of meaningful bond because it might mean losing that person again. If someone can make it into her heart, however, she will fiercely protect them with all she has and give everything for them.
Raven also harbors a strong distaste for any kind of authority and big, strict hierarchies. This includes major corporations as well as the government. While she generally carries out contracts regardless of who they’re from, there’s certain things she may just refuse to do and she is willing to accept the consequences for that.

Bot -n- KratosAnzeigen

Player’s name: Kratos
Character name: Bot (everybody knows this is not their real name but everybody refers to them as Bot)
Real name: Jirka Revendar
Gender: Agender. (Bot doesn‘t identify themself with any gender. They were born female but had removed their breasts years ago.)
Age: 25
Sexual orientation: Demisexual. (They‘re just sexually attrackted to a person after a long emotional relationship with enough trust.)
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Hacker.

Eyes: Bot has blue-grey eyes.
Hair colour/hairstyle: Bot‘s hair is long, straight and black. Just one streak on the left side of their face is completely white. Their hair ends at their waists.
Body: Bot is 1,74m tall. Not exactly slim but wiry, you can see that this asthenic human is not as weak as they look like, especially when it comes to their hands and fingers.
Bot has fair skin and sometimes they look a little pale. Their face is long and clear-cut with high cheekbones and a high forehead.
Judging by their face it is not possible to tell Bot‘s gender and they do not use any cosmetics to make this easier. Only their broad hips would tell people they once belonged to a female person. But Bot cut off their breasts years before. When seeing them shirtless there are still a few ugly scars to see. One of many reasons why Bot doesn‘t go outside shirtless.
Bot has eight detectors in their hands – each one in one finger, only both little fingers don‘t have detectors. They‘re invisible but can be felt by touching the fingertips. Their fingertips are usually cold as ice and underneath the skin you can feel the metal.
These detectors are used to detect different things: One can feel bugs in clothing or other things, this detector can‘t be blocked but works just within a radius of 15 centimeters. Another one can feel junction boxes and electric circuits when hidden behind walls for example. This works within a radius of 30 centimeters. When detected a junction box they can tell if it‘s direct current or alternating current. The fourth detector is used for magnetic fields and to trace their prepetator. The fifth can trace radiation, and the sixth lasers. The seventh detector is used to make the hacking easier – it contents a virus which can be used to infect a system by easily touching and activating it. The detector finds the port for this virus on its own – it is designed to hack A.I.s. The last detector is just a tiny metal detector and works within a radius of 10 centimeters.
Those detectors hurt when they detect something. Bot just got used to it and doesn‘t want to change it anymore.
Bot also has an RFID transponder in the underarm which contains personal information such as their clinical record, different data about viruses and programms they are currently working on, their testament and some private photos. This RFID transponder is individualised and can only be read out by their own reader. This transponder cannot be felt or noticed by any system except ultrared scanners.
Clothing and equipment: Bot favors shirts and hoodies in friendly colors like black, and black. Or black to give variety to their wardrobe. Most of the times they also wear jeans in – surprise – black or grey. And boots or normal sneakers in grey or black.
Usually Bot‘s carrying a few tools around. Their datapad and reader are always with them, in a black, shabby shoulder bag. Usually they‘re also equiped with two different blades in their belt: One is pretty long – 14 centimeters – and one is rather small. Just six centimeters but as sharp as a razor blade.
They‘re not handing a gun or other ranged weapons usually. They‘re just wearing them if necessary on a mission.
Bot also carries several usb flash drives, one or more external hard disk drives and a nightscope with them in their shoulder bag.

Personality: Bot is a silent person who doesn‘t like to be the focus of attention. They prefer to be alone or with one other person to talk to. The only thing they really enjoy to do with other people is hacking – or talking about hacking. They feel secure in this area and are confident enough to spread their opinion among other people.
Making friends is always a bit complicated for them. Bot has people they like to talk to but do not know enough to call them friends or talk enough to them to do so. This is not because they do not care about other people but because they are the kind of person that focusses on one thing and forgets everything else – or is perfectly messed up inside their own head.
Bot is perfectly happy when they have something to work on. They‘re so dedicated to their own projects they sometimes forget to eat for one or two days and most of the time forget to be a good friend but there is no situation in the world when they are happier. This is why they optimized their body for what they love to do.
Besides their obvious lack of space inside their head during a project, Bot often do their best to be a good friend. They are a good listener and belong to those people who feel useful by just lending an ear to another one. The fact that they often mess up friendships because of their own inability to keep important things in mind hurt them a lot and they totally blame it on themself. But even when they notice they got exchanged for a better friend they are still loyal towards their old friends and try to help them wherever they can.
Quotes:
“There are few things as unsettling as a lack of control in an unfamiliar situation.” 
― Becky Chambers, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

"Weißt du, warum menschliche Modder sich untereinander so seltsame Namen geben?"
Sie schüttelte den Kopf.
"Es ist ein ganz alter Brauch, der auf die Computernetzwerke vor dem Zusammenbruch zurückgeht. Wir reden hier von richtig alter Technologie. Die Leute gaben sich Namen, die sie nur innerhalb eines Netzwerkes benutzten. Manchmal wurde der Name so sehr ein Teil von ihnen,
dass selbst ihre Freunde aus der wirklichen Welt anfingen, sie so zu nennen. Für manche Leute wurde dieser Name zu ihrer wirklichen Identität.
Nun, Modder - für diese Leute ist nichts wichtiger, als die individuelle Freiheit. Sie glauben, dass nur man selbst sich definieren kann. Als Bär sich den neuen Arm angebaut hat, hat er das nicht getan, weil ihm der Körper, in dem er geboren wurde, nicht gefiel, sondern, weil er fand, dass dieser Arm besser zu ihm passte. Wenn man seinen Körper optimiert, geht es darum, das körperliche Selbst damit in Einklang zu bringen, wie man sich innerlich fühlt. Nicht darum, dass man den Körper optimieren müsste. Ich zum Beispiel - ich verschönere mich zwar gern, aber mein Körper passt schon zu meinem Selbst. Manche Modder wiederum machen ihr ganzes Leben lang weiter mit den Veränderungen. Und nicht immer geht es gut aus.
Aber das ist eben das Risiko, wenn man mehr sein will, als die Hülle, in die man hinein geboren wurde."

“Aww!” said Kizzy, clasping her hands over her heart. “You’re a physics virgin!”

Backstory: Bot was born and grew up in the middle class without any problems until they became fourteen. When their body started to evolve some typical female forms they started to feel uncomfortable with them. But since their parents were perfectly open-minded they helped they helped Bot to get their breasts and uterus removed. They also helped to let Bot‘s name change from „Anna“ to „Jirka“ - an unisex name. Two years later Bot‘s parents died by accident. Bot came to an orphanage and got depressive. By this time they started hacking and found their secure haven in it. They finished school with nineteen and joined Neon Grey in the same year. Their detectors came one after another when ever they had earned enough money to afford them. Bot might still be a bit distant but they accepted Neon Grey as their new – big – family.

Wanted to finish all my babies before posting them, and so I did.
Here they are, for your entertainment and my sadistic heart. (I'm so sorry, they all suffered too much for it to be fair, as usual)
Tristan Carter - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Tristan Carter
Gender: Male
Age: 35 years
Sexual orientation: Bisexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Supervisor of the soldiers

Eyes: pale green, darker at the corners
Hair colour/hairstyle: blonde, almost chest-long hair, that he often wears in messy braids, especially while working. Usually, a few strands hang loose on the sides of his face. If he wears his hair open, which only ever happens in his free time, it gives off a vibe of chaotic perfection, like a mess, but perfectly under control as if every strand that’s out of place was put there for a reason.
Body: Tristan has an athletic, muscular body, but isn’t the bulky type. While his shoulders are broad and his chest and stomach are shaped by obvious muscles, he still seems agile. He’s about 1,87 metres tall, so he’s a little above average height, but not outstandingly so.
Tristan has a sharp jawline and high cheekbones, slightly curved brows, notably darker than his hair, and a straight nose. His lips are rather thin and he has a little scar through both of them on the left side.
He has a somewhat caramel-ish skin tone, which is a notable contrast to his light hair and eyes.
Tristan didn’t modify his body too much, at least not voluntarily. The only body mod he had made because he wanted it is an aiming enhancement in his eyes that helps him locate and track targets more easily. The other is a bionic hand (right hand) he got after losing his right hand during his service in the army. This hand assures a tighter grip, almost no pain signal to the nerves, unless important tech parts are damaged, no fingerprints on the right hand, and a punch that hurts way more, due to the harder material. It’s sensitive to touch and reacts to his brain’s commands just like a normal hand, so he’s not facing any issues with it.
Clothing and equipment: Tris prefers practical clothing and usually goes for either army pants, tops, boots and a combat jacket, or sweatpants, tight shirts, because loose ones would get in the way, and sneakers. He still wears his old dog tags, more out of habit than melancholy.
Though he can handle a variety of weapons, he doesn’t have too much of them. He always carries a flip knife with him, and depending on the kind of mission he’s going on either a two handguns and a sniper rifle, als well as a longer knife (for assassinations), or an electroshocker, the knife and one gun (for anything else.)

Personality: Tristan is a calm, collected person. He doesn’t rush into things, nor could he be considered reckless in any way. Before he acts, he double-checks his decisions and he likes things going just as planned. However, if they don’t, he’s able to adapt quickly and shouldn’t be considered cowardly. He doesn’t wait too long, but instead uses the time he has. He is a brave, altruistic person, there’s no way around saying that, but he prefers if he doesn’t have to be. In his opinion, no one needs a hero when a plan is waterproof.
While he is a great leader, blessed with charisma and strong, good motives, he is very distanced from almost anyone, and anything, while working. He sets his mind to a goal and wants to achieve it. Though looking for the best way to get there and minimum losses, he thinks that sometimes, victory indeed stands on the back of sacrifice and that there are bigger things than a single, human life.
Luckily, he isn’t really in the position to make decisions as hard as that. He looks out for his people and makes sure they are alright, but not more than that. Tristan doesn’t like to get involved with the private lives of colleagues and while that grants the people he works with a high level of privacy, it also can make him seem very detached, sometimes indifferent, to an almost unsettling point.
He has a lot of things going on inside below the surface, but rarely lets people see it. Tris is in control of his emotions, at least most of the time, thereby being a somewhat closed book to everyone, but the people very close to him.
People like his little brother, whom he loves deeply and even though they’re so different and get lost in translation quite often, would do almost anything for. Family hasn’t been important to Tristan for a while now, but his brother definitely is the only exception to that.
Or people like Raven, even though their friendship, that took a long time to build up, relies on him not asking about her deeper emotions and her not asking about his quite much. But she definitely is one of the people allowed to see below that layer of polite distance.
Deep inside, Tristan isn’t indifferent or cold towards the people he works with, Neon Grey as a whole, or people in general at all. He’s simply afraid that feelings might cloud his judgement and that is something he doesn’t ever want to happen again. Because, yes, he is afraid of failing like only a person who’s known severe failure can be.
In private, Tris is still a very calm person, avoiding fights and conflict simply by being too collected and too serene to lose his temper. Fighting with him isn’t entertaining, and rarely leads anywhere, because he is a very confident person with enough self-value to stand up and walk away from a fight, simply because it is not worth his time.
He will fight, though, if it’s necessary or hitting too close to home, because there are certain topics, like for instance the well-being of his brother, he could never walk away from, even if that’s not plain to see at first sight.
Tris doesn’t like accepting help and tends to think he has to do everything alone. Seeing that he doesn’t, usually takes him some time and has a chance of making him a little grumpy, but he’ll be thankful afterwards.
Tristan generally isn’t just coldness and distance. He is very protective over the ones he loves, even though he doesn’t let them see it. Not because he’s ashamed of it, but simply because he sees that most of the time those people can very well look out for themselves and he doesn’t want to put himself into the role of a protector, because it might make them feel smaller or reduced to something they’re not.
He’s clever and a good conversation partner, especially if he’s in a good and relaxed mood. Tris is easy to be around and has a calming aura, making it easy to get comfortable with him. And man, does he have stories to tell. He might not be easy to get to, but putting the required effort into it is worth it.
He simply is a person with scars and insecurities like everyone else, but he has a hard time letting anyone see that, or only admitting it in front of himself, causing him to act like nothing is wrong most of the time. Someone so afraid of failure that he’d rather shut everyone out than let them become casualties of his wrong decisions. In the end, though, he has a good heart and strong mind, he is honest, even if it’s an ugly truth, committed, loyal and eager to help people who weren’t blessed with such a fairly easy life as he was.

(Sansa Stark ; Game of Thrones)

“Loyal to the end.”
(Pater Aquillus ; ATATN)

“Words are easy, like the wind; Faithful friends are hard to find.“
(William Shakespeare ; The Passionate Pilgrim)

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it—always.“
(Mahatma Ghandi)

“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.“
(Fyodor Dostoyevsky ; The Brothers Karamazov)

“In times of deceit, telling the truth is an revolutionary act.“
(George Orwell)

“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.“
(Leonardo Da Vinci)

“I have never been nothing.“
(Daenerys Targaryen ; Game of Thrones)

“So, my little Amélie, you don't have bones of glass. You can take life's knocks.“
(Raymond Dufayel ; Amélie)

“It's our actions that define us. What we choose. What we resist. What we're willing to die for.“
(Karen Marie Moning)

“Sometimes to do some good you gotta be the bad guy.“
(Survive the Night)

“Sometimes I wish I could save you,
And there’s so many things that I want you to know.”
(Simple Plan ; Save You)

Backstory: Being raised in the High Society, Tristan never had any worries in his youth, other than which girl or boy to take to prom and the grades he got. He lived an easy and fairly happy life with his family, got along okay with his younger brother and was loved by his parents. He was always talented in sports which made him popular in school, blessed with good looks, which made him popular with girls and boys alike, and also polite and clever, which made him popular with the teachers as well. He never would have had to work hard for good grades, but being the ambitious person he is, and always was, he worked hard for great ones. When he graduated, he had close to perfect scores, a lot of friends and the support of his family; Everything he needed to go places.
Tristan probably could have done anything in the world, and most of the things that would assure him a life as easy as the one he had so far. To everyone’s surprise, though, Tristan decided to join the army and stayed in the service for ten years.
In that time, he rose in rank and renown, but he figured out sooner or later that the army wasn’t where he belonged. It was probably a mission in the slums of a city, the same he also lost his right hand and his closest partner in, because of some wrong decisions he made, that made him realize he wasn’t going to help the people in the position he was in, and that he really wanted to help them.
His parents tried talking him into trauma therapy, saying that he would get his passion for his job back, if only he’d process both, the loss of his partner, and a body part, but that was never the case.
Seven years ago, Tristan quit the service and joined Neon Grey. His military background helped him to become a very good soldier, and working with the organization gave him enough space to earn money, but also do the charity he always wanted to do. Even though his parents never talked to him again after his final decision, Tristan was, and still is, happy with his new job. Happy enough to put effort, time and passion into it. He eventually became supervisor of the soldiers four years ago and even reunited with his younger brother, made some friends along the way. He still helps the poor as much as he can, while also being dedicated to Neon Grey, but most importantly, very happy with his job and generally his life (at least most of the time) once again.

Cato Davis - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Cato Davis
Gender: Male
Age: 23 years
Sexual orientation: pansexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Soldier

Eyes: bright blue
Hair colour/hairstyle: Cato has black hair that is cut short on the sides of his haid, but almost about chin-long on top, front and back of his head. While working, he often pulls the long hair back into a messy bun, in his free time he wears it loose and open.
Body: Cato’s height and slim, athletic figure are pretty average. What does stand out though, is the fact that 80% of his body seem to be bionic body parts. Arms and hands, chest, back and his legs (from the middle of his thighs) and feet shimmer in a silvery-white and are obviously not human, though shaped fittingly for his body. (In that style)
His chin and jawline, as well as his neck also have bionic implants, this time in dark grey. Those implants stabilize the areas they were put into, below that, Cato still has “normal” body parts.
Though his bionic body parts were built to keep him alive and enable him to move, after having lost an arm and both his legs in an accident, the other arm and much of his spine and chest-area being severely damaged, some of them enhance his physical abilities. His legs for instance enable him to run faster than he ever did before getting them. He’s also less sensitive to pain (unless important parts of his bionic body parts are damaged) and generally quicker than he was before.
A huge problem are his lungs though, because the technology there isn’t as good as it could be, causing Cato to have problems breathing from time to time and his stamina dropping from average to quite bad.
The parts of his body that are still entirely human (from hip downwards to the middle of his thighs, his face and a small area above his chest, including his collarbone) are covered in scars. Especially his face has a lot of them. Rather small and even, much to his luck, but that doesn’t make him any less insecure about it.
Clothing and equipment:His clothes often hide his bionic parts away as well as possible. He wears oversized Hoodies and long sweatpants, combined with sneakers and leather jackets most of the time, and often keeps the hoods on to cover his face at least a bit.
Cato carries several knives and a blaster with him, but only on missions. In his free time, the only weapon he has at hand is his brother’s knife hidden in the sleeve of his hoodie.

Personality: Cato is a good-hearted, but not a happy or very cheerful person. While he does his best not to get on anyone’s nerves, he mostly is reserved and quiet, often lost in thoughts he’ll never reveal to anyone. He prefers to be alone, or in a small group of people, because larger groups make him feel insecure and unsafe. He generally is quite jumpy.
Most of the time, Cato is alone, reading. It’s the only time where he can forget everything going on in his mind, focus on something else and feel something close to happiness.
It’s plain to see that Cato is depressed and his sadness is quite apparent most of the time. He cries a lot, even though he tries not to in front of others.
Cato cares about others way more than about himself, has very little self-value or self-respect, and tries hard not to be a burden.
He hides behind a fake-smile, that isn’t as perfect and convincing as he’d like it to be.
Even though Cato shuts other people out of his own thoughts, he’s always there if someone needs a shoulder to lean on, or someone to listen. The few friendships he has, he cares for. They go deeper than just random acquaintances, which is very important to him. The reason he is able to built strong and good friendships, even though he rarely ever socializes and doesn’t reveal much about himself, is that he accepts people the way they are. and also the limits they put on any kind of relationship. For instance, he’ll offer his support to someone once, but if they don’t want to talk about anything specific, especially concerning past or feelings, he wouldn’t ever pressure them to.
If they do, though, he is a patient listener with a lot of empathy, who tries his best to help, or just be there, if that’s the only thing he can do.
He is very loving and caring, but also a person who needs a lot of love and care from others, even though he wouldn’t admit that. He feels left behind rather quickly and gets sad about it, even if his friends never meant it in that way. Sometimes it takes days for him to crawl back out of that hole he falls into when things go wrong, his feelings get hurt or something bad happens.
Cato is a sensitive person and feels strongly with others. Their emotions affect his a lot and he can’t bear someone screaming at him. He tends to run away and shut everyone out when things are too much for him, not because he stops caring or is being mean, but simply as a mechanism of self protection.
Cato hates his “new” body and often wishes his parents would just have let him die instead. He can’t deal with his scars either and mostly tries to hide them as well as possible. He also doesn’t look at people directly, most of the time, because he’s ashamed of his face.
He can be brave and always puts other people above him, thinks their well-being is more important than his and would risk his own life for others without thinking twice, making him somewhat brave and altruistic. Though, his bravery is born of indifference, or even hate, for himself just as much as of his good heart.
Quotes: “If I’m going to die, let it happen while there’s still some of me left.”
(Sansa Stark ; Game of Thrones)

“And every word’s just a whisper to the wind,
I pray to God for angels he’ll never send.
Hold your breath, and pray for the world to end.”
(Letters from the Fire ; At War)

“I panic at a lot of other places beside the disco.“

About him: “You are so brave and quiet, I forget you are suffering.”
(Ernest Hemmingway)

“You never think that the last time will be the last time. You think there’s going to be more. You think you have forever, but you don’t.”

Backstory: Cato grew up with rich parents who loved him and made life as easy for him as possible. He had an older brother whom he loved dearly got along great with. As there were only two years between them, they did most things together, had the same friends and were into the same activities.
He graduated from high school with good grades and went to college, but that is pretty much where his happy life ended. Being away from his family, especially his brother, made him feel lost and insecure. It was hard for Cato to find new friends and he missed home. His girlfriend made those days a little easier for him, though.
He was home for the holidays when he and his brother got into a horrible accident, where his brother died and Cato was severely wounded. He lost both his legs and an arm, his spine and chest were damaged in that accident as well.
He was taken to a hospital and put in an induced coma, only living because of machines and with almost no chance to ever wake up again. His parents, who had just lost a son, were given the choice to either turn off the devices keeping him alive, or try something else, in that case several OPs to repair his body with bionic implants and prostheses.
After two years, Cato indeed woke up again. He wasn’t happy with his parent’s decision, but never told them, because he didn’t want to make them unhappy, even though he could barely bear to look in a mirror. He needed therapy and rehab training to learn how to deal with his “new” body and started to at least be able to live a somewhat normal life again.
The repulse for his body stayed with him though, as did the depression starting in that time. The fact that his girlfriend had left him while he still was in a coma, certainly didn’t make that better.
Cato joined Neon Grey a year ago, after leaving his home without any message to his parents, simply he couldn’t bear to stay at home anymore. Everything either reminded him of his brother, the girl he loved, or the life he used to have. He needed change, more than anything.
Cato now works mostly as a thief because he hates the idea of hurting people for money and he's actually quite good at stealing.

[spoiler=Cato Davis - m - Alain]
[b]Player’s name:[/b] Alain 
[b]Character name:[/b] Cato Davis 
[b]Gender:[/b] Male 
[b]Age:[/b] 23 years 
[b]Sexual orientation:[/b] pansexual 
[b]Rank/Group within Neon Grey:[/b] Soldier 

[b]Eyes:[/b] bright blue 
[b]Hair colour/hairstyle:[/b] Cato has black hair that is cut short on the sides of his haid, but almost about chin-long on top, front and back of his head. While working, he often pulls the long hair back into a messy bun, in his free time he wears it loose and open. 
[b]Body:[/b] Cato’s height and slim, athletic figure are pretty average. What does stand out though, is the fact that 80% of his body seem to be bionic body parts. Arms and hands, chest, back and his legs (from the middle of his thighs) and feet shimmer in a silvery-white and are obviously not human, though shaped fittingly for his body. ([url=http://cdn1.theodysseyonline.com/files/2016/01/04/635875457490623327762783802_26%20Cyborg%20Arm.png]In that style[/url]) 
His chin and jawline, as well as his neck also have bionic implants, this time in dark grey. Those implants stabilize the areas they were put into, below that, Cato still has “normal” body parts. 
Though his bionic body parts were built to keep him alive and enable him to move, after having lost an arm and both his legs in an accident, the other arm and much of his spine and chest-area being severely damaged, some of them enhance his physical abilities. His legs for instance enable him to run faster than he ever did before getting them. He’s also less sensitive to pain (unless important parts of his bionic body parts are damaged) and generally quicker than he was before. 
A huge problem are his lungs though, because the technology there isn’t as good as it could be, causing Cato to have problems breathing from time to time and his stamina dropping from average to quite bad. 
The parts of his body that are still entirely human (from hip downwards to the middle of his thighs, his face and a small area above his chest, including his collarbone) are covered in scars. Especially his face has a lot of them. Rather small and even, much to his luck, but that doesn’t make him any less insecure about it. 
[b]Clothing and equipment:[/b]His clothes often hide his bionic parts away as well as possible. He wears oversized Hoodies and long sweatpants, combined with sneakers and leather jackets most of the time, and often keeps the hoods on to cover his face at least a bit. 
Cato carries several knives and a blaster with him, but only on missions. In his free time, the only weapon he has at hand is his brother’s knife hidden in the sleeve of his hoodie. 

[b]Personality:[/b] Cato is a good-hearted, but not a happy or very cheerful person. While he does his best not to get on anyone’s nerves, he mostly is reserved and quiet, often lost in thoughts he’ll never reveal to anyone. He prefers to be alone, or in a small group of people, because larger groups make him feel insecure and unsafe. He generally is quite jumpy. 
Most of the time, Cato is alone, reading. It’s the only time where he can forget everything going on in his mind, focus on something else and feel something close to happiness. 
It’s plain to see that Cato is depressed and his sadness is quite apparent most of the time. He cries a lot, even though he tries not to in front of others.
Cato cares about others way more than about himself, has very little self-value or self-respect, and tries hard not to be a burden. 
He hides behind a fake-smile, that isn’t as perfect and convincing as he’d like it to be. 
Even though Cato shuts other people out of his own thoughts, he’s always there if someone needs a shoulder to lean on, or someone to listen. The few friendships he has, he cares for. They go deeper than just random acquaintances, which is very important to him. The reason he is able to built strong and good friendships, even though he rarely ever socializes and doesn’t reveal much about himself, is that he accepts people the way they are. and also the limits they put on any kind of relationship. For instance, he’ll offer his support to someone once, but if they don’t want to talk about anything specific, especially concerning past or feelings, he wouldn’t ever pressure them to. 
If they do, though, he is a patient listener with a lot of empathy, who tries his best to help, or just be there, if that’s the only thing he can do. 
He is very loving and caring, but also a person who needs a lot of love and care from others, even though he wouldn’t admit that. He feels left behind rather quickly and gets sad about it, even if his friends never meant it in that way. Sometimes it takes days for him to crawl back out of that hole he falls into when things go wrong, his feelings get hurt or something bad happens.
Cato is a sensitive person and feels strongly with others. Their emotions affect his a lot and he can’t bear someone screaming at him. He tends to run away and shut everyone out when things are too much for him, not because he stops caring or is being mean, but simply as a mechanism of self protection. 
Cato hates his “new” body and often wishes his parents would just have let him die instead. He can’t deal with his scars either and mostly tries to hide them as well as possible. He also doesn’t look at people directly, most of the time, because he’s ashamed of his face. 
He can be brave and always puts other people above him, thinks their well-being is more important than his and would risk his own life for others without thinking twice, making him somewhat brave and altruistic. Though, his bravery is born of indifference, or even hate, for himself just as much as of his good heart. 
[b]Quotes:[/b] “If I’m going to die, let it happen while there’s still some of me left.”

Hold your breath, and pray for the world to end.”

Sol Camejo-Feliz - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Sol Camejo-Feliz
Gender: Male
Age: 28 years
Sexual orientation: pansexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Hacker

Eyes: An intense shade of purple. The color is caused by the combination hacking enhancements in both eyes and tattoos on the iris. His original eye-color is a dark brown.
Hair colour/hairstyle: Sol wears his hair asymmetrical with a side-cut on the right side and the hair on the left side diagonally going from short at the back of his head to shoulder length at the very front. His hair color is a brown that one might compare to dark chocolate, however shortly above the top or his ear the long side is dyed a bold purple, whereas the tips are a soft shade of lilac that is almost white.
Body: Sol isn’t tall or broad but not extremely thin or small either. Instead, he’s the average of both, with an athletic, but not outstandingly muscular body and a height of about 1.79 metres.
In fact, Sol has a rather feminine figure with slightly wider hips than most men, long legs and muscles that simply shape his limbs, as well as his stomach, instead of making him bulky or broad.
He has relatively dark skin, completing the “Latino-vibe” he generally displays, and justifiably, given his Spanish origin. His skin and hair color, as well as his originally dark eyes arent’t the only of his “typical” Latino features -- his distinct temperament and strong emotions guarantee that, most of the time, the way he feels about something is plain to see in his expressions.
Sol has a rather round face with soft features, again adding to his generally feminine appearance. As mentioned earlier, the play of emotion is most of the time quite visible and he doesn’t do that good concealing his feelings, as he has a very strong mimic.
He wasn’t shy modding his body and enhancing his hacking skills. Hacking is probably one of the most important things in his life, so every modification was worth the cost.
Hidden in his gloves, just above the wrist, is the projector for his holographic tablet, his main device for hacking. To match that, the tips of Sol’s fingers were modified to be able to type on the holograms more precisely, thereby avoiding any hitbox bugs. The sensors put into them also help him spot weaknesses in minor security systems (like a door locked with a code), given he can touch the main device of it (like the numbers block) directly. Major parts of his fingerprints were, not erased, but hidden under an overlay, making it way more difficult to track him.
Tracking is also much more difficult because of another enhancement: Sol doesn’t just carry his own WiFi adapter in the clips attached to the right side and back of his head, but also his very own proxy server. Both are connected to a power center in his back, embedded into the skin above his spine.
The enhancements in his eyes allow him to save information right from his eyes to an SD card that’s connected to the enhancements via Bluetooth, like taking photos with everything unimportant greyed out and only the part of the picture he deemed important highlighted in color. He activates this feature by blinking quickly twice.
Clothing and equipment: Sol mostly wears skinny jeans and crop tops, making it plain to see how comfortable he is with his body. The tops and shirts he wears often take up the current trend of asymmetrical clothing. The colors range from neon and glow-in-the-dark to plain black. In combination to that, he mostly wears biker boots and leather jackets, or a leather coat that is a very dark shade of purple, making it look almost black.
Sol also wears fingerless gloves, almost all of the time and another prominent feature are his very long, pointy fingernails that are always painted, mostly in neon pink or blue.
His only weapons are two blades about the length of a forearm and a small device that gives out electric shocks, just strong enough to put someone out for about twenty minutes.

Personality: Sol is a cheerful, confident person. He enjoys company and is blessed with the ability to make friends quickly and easily, or generally just find a very good way of approaching different persons. He loves being the center of attention, just as much as he likes to stay in the background from time to time. Some people would say he never shuts up and that can be quite annoying, others would argue in his favor and say that at least things never get boring around Sol. He likes joking and fooling around with his friends, but is able to have deep conversations just as well. It depends on his mood.
Sol is the adventurous type and always up for trying new things, going new places or exploring the possibilities and limits of either his own self or a variety of situations. One could argue that he sometimes lacks providence doing so and could be considered reckless from time to time.
An area he’s never reckless at is hacking, though. Sol doesn’t only see hacking as a job he does and gets paid for fairly well, testing and breaking the limits of A.I.s or droids is his passion. In his eyes, even an art. He does have a taste for anarchy and power and enjoys seeing the government, or big companies for that matter, struggle, but would most likely refuse any job that could seriously damage start-ups or small businesses.
Sol is not a fan of authorities and sometimes has his very own problems dealing with both the idea of a supervisor and that of a leader. In the end, he tends to do what he thinks is right, hence his lack of unquestionable loyalty for Neon Grey.
Sol isn’t the person to leave things unquestioned anyway. Blind loyalty isn’t his style. He takes his time getting to know the leaders he’s supposed to follow and determining whether or not they deserve his respect and loyalty to a point, not to a fault. In the end, his own well-being and especially that of his friends will always be more important to him than the organization he works for.
Sol has a sharp tongue, there’s no way denying that. He’s incredibly sassy and rarely manages to not say things he probably shouldn’t say. That might get him into trouble from time to time, but his quick wits and charisma often get him out just as quickly.
Sol is very passionate and his temperament can be a force to be reckoned with. Enraging him isn’t advisable at all, as he’s also very creative and uses it for personal “revenge” quite regularly. Of course, without seriously hurting anyone within Neon Grey, but sometimes severely damaging a reputation, or two. Besides that, the things he says can get very mean and not everyone is fit to deal with that.
Sol isn’t the forgiving type and can hold grudges for an incredible time. Sometimes, people might even have long forgotten what they upset him with in the first place, while he still acts colder and distanced, sometimes even rude, towards them, in most cases without an explanation.
He is also very passionate when it comes to love, and protecting the ones he loves. For the people Sol lets into his heart, he would abandon everything, even act against his own interests, even though he is a person predestined to stay true to himself.
That being said, it is safe to assume that Sol is a very good and loyal friend. He doesn’t lie to his friends, unless it’s for their own good, always has their backs and if he doesn’t, there sure is a very good reason for it, which he will openly approach.
Being in love with him is a rollercoaster of emotions. There will be a lot of laughter and fun, just as well as passionate moments, or very gentle ones, but a partner will also have to deal with his phases where he’s incredibly sad, or with outbursts of rage. Generally, he is a very loving and passionate partner, but not the easiest one.
Sol is a very strong-willed person and strongly objects to the idea of giving up, whether in physical combat, while hacking or in an argument. He also has the very strong belief that almost everything is possible with enough faith in yourself and the people around you, given you trust them. To him, the word “impossible” is but an excuse, made up by people who aren’t willing or able to really set their minds to a goal in order to achieve it. He believes no one should allow another person to bully them into silence, or make them doubt their own strengths and abilities. Not achieving a goal to Sol doesn’t mean it is impossible to achieve it, he simply views failure as a hint to either approach things differently, get help, or start training until success doesn’t seem so impossible any more.

Family: Sol has family in the part of Europe that used to be Spain, but he’s only sporadically contacting them. He regularly transfers money to them to help them, though.
Partner: Jayden [Stag]
Backstory: Sol grew up in the slums of a city in the part of Europe that used to be Spain. With his father being from the city Europe and his mother having been born in the city they raised him, he grew up bilingual. Sol has two younger siblings and had to look after them quite frequently, because both his parents worked hard to earn enough money to properly care for three children.
In his early youth, his high intelligence was discovered and he first started getting into IT and hacking.
After graduating with almost perfect scores, he was granted a scholarship in Europe and studied IT there. Leaving home wasn’t easy for Sol and leaving his family even less so, but he promised himself that he would use that chance he was granted to get a good job and earn enough money to help his family.
After he finished his studies, again with very high scores, he started to work as a hacker, legally and on demand of the companies hacking their security systems to test their limits, find bugs and improve them. Though his job paid his bills and he was able to help his family as well, Sol got bored of it quickly.
A few years ago he applied to Neon Grey after having heard several stories about them, and got accepted, thereby having found a more challenging work field he is able to enjoy much more, as well as unlock his full potential at.

„I will hurt you for this. A day will come when you think you’re safe and happy and your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth and you will know the debt is paid.“
(Tyrion Lannister ; Game of Thrones)

„God will forgive you, probably. But I won't.“
(Isabella I)

„And you tried to change, didn't you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake... You can't make homes out of human beings. Someone should have told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying and strange and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love.“
(Warsan Shire)

“Just because they pardoned you doesn't mean I have.”

[b]Family:[/b] Sol has family in the part of Europe that used to be Spain, but he’s only sporadically contacting them. He regularly transfers money to them to help them, though. 
[b]Partner:[/b] Jayden [Stag] 
[b]Backstory:[/b] Sol grew up in the slums of a city in the part of Europe that used to be Spain. With his father being from the city Europe and his mother having been born in the city they raised him, he grew up bilingual. Sol has two younger siblings and had to look after them quite frequently, because both his parents worked hard to earn enough money to properly care for three children. 
In his early youth, his high intelligence was discovered and he first started getting into IT and hacking. 
After graduating with almost perfect scores, he was granted a scholarship in Europe and studied IT there. Leaving home wasn’t easy for Sol and leaving his family even less so, but he promised himself that he would use that chance he was granted to get a good job and earn enough money to help his family. 
After he finished his studies, again with very high scores, he started to work as a hacker, legally and on demand of the companies hacking their security systems to test their limits, find bugs and improve them. Though his job paid his bills and he was able to help his family as well, Sol got bored of it quickly. 
A few years ago he applied to Neon Grey after having heard several stories about them, and got accepted, thereby having found a more challenging work field he is able to enjoy much more, as well as unlock his full potential at.[/spoiler]

@Kratos
Fuck I love them. And I want to protect them. Accepted.

@Alain
-cracks knuckles- okay let's do this. Also you're not sorry at all and we both know that.
Tristan you'll need to have another look at his skills. Personally I'd suggest dropping his agility by a point or two and maybe put his vigilance on 8. Then you'll have another three points to put into hacking. I'd be okay with you putting two into each and going one over the max limit since it's reasonable for a Supervisor to be a little more skilled than a regular soldier. Apart from that he's great.
Cato is close to perfection but he'll need at least two or three points into A.I. hacking or a valid reason for being incapable of doing so/seriously afraid of it.
Sol is perfect and you know how much I love him. I'm about halfway done with Jayden too.

And I'll just send this and not put the characters into the character post yet because I'm 99% convinced my Internet's gonna die again any second

Wheee, fixed the stuff.
Cato Davis - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Cato Davis
Gender: Male
Age: 23 years
Sexual orientation: pansexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Soldier

Eyes: bright blue
Hair colour/hairstyle: Cato has black hair that is cut short on the sides of his haid, but almost about chin-long on top, front and back of his head. While working, he often pulls the long hair back into a messy bun, in his free time he wears it loose and open.
Body: Cato’s height and slim, athletic figure are pretty average. What does stand out though, is the fact that 80% of his body seem to be bionic body parts. Arms and hands, chest, back and his legs (from the middle of his thighs) and feet shimmer in a silvery-white and are obviously not human, though shaped fittingly for his body. (In that style)
His chin and jawline, as well as his neck also have bionic implants, this time in dark grey. Those implants stabilize the areas they were put into, below that, Cato still has “normal” body parts.
Though his bionic body parts were built to keep him alive and enable him to move, after having lost an arm and both his legs in an accident, the other arm and much of his spine and chest-area being severely damaged, some of them enhance his physical abilities. His legs for instance enable him to run faster than he ever did before getting them. He’s also less sensitive to pain (unless important parts of his bionic body parts are damaged) and generally quicker than he was before.
A huge problem are his lungs though, because the technology there isn’t as good as it could be, causing Cato to have problems breathing from time to time and his stamina dropping from average to quite bad.
The parts of his body that are still entirely human (from hip downwards to the middle of his thighs, his face and a small area above his chest, including his collarbone) are covered in scars. Especially his face has a lot of them. Rather small and even, much to his luck, but that doesn’t make him any less insecure about it.
Clothing and equipment:His clothes often hide his bionic parts away as well as possible. He wears oversized Hoodies and long sweatpants, combined with sneakers and leather jackets most of the time, and often keeps the hoods on to cover his face at least a bit.
Cato carries several knives and a blaster with him, but only on missions. In his free time, the only weapon he has at hand is his brother’s knife hidden in the sleeve of his hoodie.

Personality: Cato is a good-hearted, but not a happy or very cheerful person. While he does his best not to get on anyone’s nerves, he mostly is reserved and quiet, often lost in thoughts he’ll never reveal to anyone. He prefers to be alone, or in a small group of people, because larger groups make him feel insecure and unsafe. He generally is quite jumpy.
Most of the time, Cato is alone, reading. It’s the only time where he can forget everything going on in his mind, focus on something else and feel something close to happiness.
It’s plain to see that Cato is depressed and his sadness is quite apparent most of the time. He cries a lot, even though he tries not to in front of others.
Cato cares about others way more than about himself, has very little self-value or self-respect, and tries hard not to be a burden.
He hides behind a fake-smile, that isn’t as perfect and convincing as he’d like it to be.
Even though Cato shuts other people out of his own thoughts, he’s always there if someone needs a shoulder to lean on, or someone to listen. The few friendships he has, he cares for. They go deeper than just random acquaintances, which is very important to him. The reason he is able to built strong and good friendships, even though he rarely ever socializes and doesn’t reveal much about himself, is that he accepts people the way they are. and also the limits they put on any kind of relationship. For instance, he’ll offer his support to someone once, but if they don’t want to talk about anything specific, especially concerning past or feelings, he wouldn’t ever pressure them to.
If they do, though, he is a patient listener with a lot of empathy, who tries his best to help, or just be there, if that’s the only thing he can do.
He is very loving and caring, but also a person who needs a lot of love and care from others, even though he wouldn’t admit that. He feels left behind rather quickly and gets sad about it, even if his friends never meant it in that way. Sometimes it takes days for him to crawl back out of that hole he falls into when things go wrong, his feelings get hurt or something bad happens.
Cato is a sensitive person and feels strongly with others. Their emotions affect his a lot and he can’t bear someone screaming at him. He tends to run away and shut everyone out when things are too much for him, not because he stops caring or is being mean, but simply as a mechanism of self protection.
Cato hates his “new” body and often wishes his parents would just have let him die instead. He can’t deal with his scars either and mostly tries to hide them as well as possible. He also doesn’t look at people directly, most of the time, because he’s ashamed of his face.
He can be brave and always puts other people above him, thinks their well-being is more important than his and would risk his own life for others without thinking twice, making him somewhat brave and altruistic. Though, his bravery is born of indifference, or even hate, for himself just as much as of his good heart.
Quotes: “If I’m going to die, let it happen while there’s still some of me left.”
(Sansa Stark ; Game of Thrones)

“And every word’s just a whisper to the wind,
I pray to God for angels he’ll never send.
Hold your breath, and pray for the world to end.”
(Letters from the Fire ; At War)

“I panic at a lot of other places beside the disco.“

About him: “You are so brave and quiet, I forget you are suffering.”
(Ernest Hemmingway)

“You never think that the last time will be the last time. You think there’s going to be more. You think you have forever, but you don’t.”

“You may need me there to carry all your weight. But you're no burden, I assure.“
(Rob Thomas ; Ever the same)

“Know that when death comes for your, that I shall meet its blade with mine.”

“I'm not going to censor myself to comfort your ignorance.“
(Jon Stewart)

„It was times like this when I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.“
(Harper Lee ; To Kill a Mockingbird)

„He wished he could explain some of this. How he had been braver than he ever thought was possible, but how he had not been so brave as he wanted to be.“
(Tim O'Brien ; The Things They Carried)


“The point is not that the world is too sad to love; or too glad not to love. The point is that when you do love a thing its gladness is a reason for loving it and its sadness is a reason for loving it more.“
(G. K. Chesterton)

“All the weight of all the world is right between your shoulders
Heavy is the heart when the world keeps growing colder“
(Hollywood Undead ; Outside)

“Put your hand to mine and feel this emptiness
There's no beat in my chest, 'cause there's nothing left
No it ain't goodbye, it's a last caress
What's another dream, you can hardly sleep
Can you believe bad things only happen to me?
God knows one day you will finally see
That scars will heal but were meant to bleed
Do you realize I would lie for you?
Please have my last breath, I would die for you“
(Hollywood Undead ; Believe)

“Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the table with its worst horrors.“

Backstory: Cato grew up with rich parents who loved him and made life as easy for him as possible. He had an older brother whom he loved dearly got along great with. As there were only two years between them, they did most things together, had the same friends and were into the same activities.
He graduated from high school with good grades and went to college, but that is pretty much where his happy life ended. Being away from his family, especially his brother, made him feel lost and insecure. It was hard for Cato to find new friends and he missed home. His girlfriend made those days a little easier for him, though.
He was home for the holidays when he and his brother got into a horrible accident, where his brother died and Cato was severely wounded. He lost both his legs and an arm, his spine and chest were damaged in that accident as well.
He was taken to a hospital and put in an induced coma, only living because of machines and with almost no chance to ever wake up again. His parents, who had just lost a son, were given the choice to either turn off the devices keeping him alive, or try something else, in that case several OPs to repair his body with bionic implants and prostheses.
After two years, Cato indeed woke up again. He wasn’t happy with his parent’s decision, but never told them, because he didn’t want to make them unhappy, even though he could barely bear to look in a mirror. He needed therapy and rehab training to learn how to deal with his “new” body and started to at least be able to live a somewhat normal life again.
The repulse for his body stayed with him though, as did the depression starting in that time. The fact that his girlfriend had left him while he still was in a coma, certainly didn’t make that better.
Cato joined Neon Grey a year ago, after leaving his home without any message to his parents, simply he couldn’t bear to stay at home anymore. Everything either reminded him of his brother, the girl he loved, or the life he used to have. He needed change, more than anything.

Tristan Carter - m - AlainAnzeigen
Player’s name: Alain
Character name: Tristan Carter
Gender: Male
Age: 35 years
Sexual orientation: Bisexual
Rank/Group within Neon Grey: Supervisor of the soldiers

Eyes: pale green, darker at the corners
Hair colour/hairstyle: blonde, almost chest-long hair, that he often wears in messy braids, especially while working. Usually, a few strands hang loose on the sides of his face. If he wears his hair open, which only ever happens in his free time, it gives off a vibe of chaotic perfection, like a mess, but perfectly under control as if every strand that’s out of place was put there for a reason.
Body: Tristan has an athletic, muscular body, but isn’t the bulky type. While his shoulders are broad and his chest and stomach are shaped by obvious muscles, he still seems agile. He’s about 1,87 metres tall, so he’s a little above average height, but not outstandingly so.
Tristan has a sharp jawline and high cheekbones, slightly curved brows, notably darker than his hair, and a straight nose. His lips are rather thin and he has a little scar through both of them on the left side.
He has a somewhat caramel-ish skin tone, which is a notable contrast to his light hair and eyes.
Tristan didn’t modify his body too much, at least not voluntarily. The only body mod he had made because he wanted it is an aiming enhancement in his eyes that helps him locate and track targets more easily. The other is a bionic hand (right hand) he got after losing his right hand during his service in the army. This hand assures a tighter grip, almost no pain signal to the nerves, unless important tech parts are damaged, no fingerprints on the right hand, and a punch that hurts way more, due to the harder material. It’s sensitive to touch and reacts to his brain’s commands just like a normal hand, so he’s not facing any issues with it.
Clothing and equipment: Tris prefers practical clothing and usually goes for either army pants, tops, boots and a combat jacket, or sweatpants, tight shirts, because loose ones would get in the way, and sneakers. He still wears his old dog tags, more out of habit than melancholy.
Though he can handle a variety of weapons, he doesn’t have too much of them. He always carries a flip knife with him, and depending on the kind of mission he’s going on either a two handguns and a sniper rifle, als well as a longer knife (for assassinations), or an electroshocker, the knife and one gun (for anything else.)

Personality: Tristan is a calm, collected person. He doesn’t rush into things, nor could he be considered reckless in any way. Before he acts, he double-checks his decisions and he likes things going just as planned. However, if they don’t, he’s able to adapt quickly and shouldn’t be considered cowardly. He doesn’t wait too long, but instead uses the time he has. He is a brave, altruistic person, there’s no way around saying that, but he prefers if he doesn’t have to be. In his opinion, no one needs a hero when a plan is waterproof.
While he is a great leader, blessed with charisma and strong, good motives, he is very distanced from almost anyone, and anything, while working. He sets his mind to a goal and wants to achieve it. Though looking for the best way to get there and minimum losses, he thinks that sometimes, victory indeed stands on the back of sacrifice and that there are bigger things than a single, human life.
Luckily, he isn’t really in the position to make decisions as hard as that. He looks out for his people and makes sure they are alright, but not more than that. Tristan doesn’t like to get involved with the private lives of colleagues and while that grants the people he works with a high level of privacy, it also can make him seem very detached, sometimes indifferent, to an almost unsettling point.
He has a lot of things going on inside below the surface, but rarely lets people see it. Tris is in control of his emotions, at least most of the time, thereby being a somewhat closed book to everyone, but the people very close to him.
People like his little brother, whom he loves deeply and even though they’re so different and get lost in translation quite often, would do almost anything for. Family hasn’t been important to Tristan for a while now, but his brother definitely is the only exception to that.
Or people like Raven, even though their friendship, that took a long time to build up, relies on him not asking about her deeper emotions and her not asking about his quite much. But she definitely is one of the people allowed to see below that layer of polite distance.
Deep inside, Tristan isn’t indifferent or cold towards the people he works with, Neon Grey as a whole, or people in general at all. He’s simply afraid that feelings might cloud his judgement and that is something he doesn’t ever want to happen again. Because, yes, he is afraid of failing like only a person who’s known severe failure can be.
In private, Tris is still a very calm person, avoiding fights and conflict simply by being too collected and too serene to lose his temper. Fighting with him isn’t entertaining, and rarely leads anywhere, because he is a very confident person with enough self-value to stand up and walk away from a fight, simply because it is not worth his time.
He will fight, though, if it’s necessary or hitting too close to home, because there are certain topics, like for instance the well-being of his brother, he could never walk away from, even if that’s not plain to see at first sight.
Tris doesn’t like accepting help and tends to think he has to do everything alone. Seeing that he doesn’t, usually takes him some time and has a chance of making him a little grumpy, but he’ll be thankful afterwards.
Tristan generally isn’t just coldness and distance. He is very protective over the ones he loves, even though he doesn’t let them see it. Not because he’s ashamed of it, but simply because he sees that most of the time those people can very well look out for themselves and he doesn’t want to put himself into the role of a protector, because it might make them feel smaller or reduced to something they’re not.
He’s clever and a good conversation partner, especially if he’s in a good and relaxed mood. Tris is easy to be around and has a calming aura, making it easy to get comfortable with him. And man, does he have stories to tell. He might not be easy to get to, but putting the required effort into it is worth it.
He simply is a person with scars and insecurities like everyone else, but he has a hard time letting anyone see that, or only admitting it in front of himself, causing him to act like nothing is wrong most of the time. Someone so afraid of failure that he’d rather shut everyone out than let them become casualties of his wrong decisions. In the end, though, he has a good heart and strong mind, he is honest, even if it’s an ugly truth, committed, loyal and eager to help people who weren’t blessed with such a fairly easy life as he was.

Family: Younger brother [Captain Solo]
Partner: /
Backstory: Being raised in the High Society, Tristan never had any worries in his youth, other than which girl or boy to take to prom and the grades he got. He lived an easy and fairly happy life with his family, got along okay with his younger brother and was loved by his parents. He was always talented in sports which made him popular in school, blessed with good looks, which made him popular with girls and boys alike, and also polite and clever, which made him popular with the teachers as well. He never would have had to work hard for good grades, but being the ambitious person he is, and always was, he worked hard for great ones. When he graduated, he had close to perfect scores, a lot of friends and the support of his family; Everything he needed to go places.
Tristan probably could have done anything in the world, and most of the things that would assure him a life as easy as the one he had so far. To everyone’s surprise, though, Tristan decided to join the army and stayed in the service for ten years.
In that time, he rose in rank and renown, but he figured out sooner or later that the army wasn’t where he belonged. It was probably a mission in the slums of a city, the same he also lost his right hand and his closest partner in, because of some wrong decisions he made, that made him realize he wasn’t going to help the people in the position he was in, and that he really wanted to help them.
His parents tried talking him into trauma therapy, saying that he would get his passion for his job back, if only he’d process both, the loss of his partner, and a body part, but that was never the case.
Seven years ago, Tristan quit the service and joined Neon Grey. His military background helped him to become a very good soldier, and working with the organization gave him enough space to earn money, but also do the charity he always wanted to do. Even though his parents never talked to him again after his final decision, Tristan was, and still is, happy with his new job. Happy enough to put effort, time and passion into it. He eventually became supervisor of the soldiers four years ago and even reunited with his younger brother, made some friends along the way. He still helps the poor as much as he can, while also being dedicated to Neon Grey, but most importantly, very happy with his job and generally his life (at least most of the time) once again.

Code: Alles auswählen

[spoiler=Tristan Carter - m - Alain]
[b]Player’s name:[/b] Alain 
[b]Character name:[/b] Tristan Carter 
[b]Gender:[/b] Male 
[b]Age:[/b] 35 years 
[b]Sexual orientation:[/b] Bisexual 
[b]Rank/Group within Neon Grey:[/b] Supervisor of the soldiers 

[b]Eyes:[/b] pale green, darker at the corners  
[b]Hair colour/hairstyle:[/b] blonde, almost chest-long hair, that he often wears in messy braids, especially while working. Usually, a few strands hang loose on the sides of his face. If he wears his hair open, which only ever happens in his free time, it gives off a vibe of chaotic perfection, like a mess, but perfectly under control as if every strand that’s out of place was put there for a reason. 
[b]Body:[/b] Tristan has an athletic, muscular body, but isn’t the bulky type. While his shoulders are broad and his chest and stomach are shaped by obvious muscles, he still seems agile. He’s about 1,87 metres tall, so he’s a little above average height, but not outstandingly so. 
Tristan has a sharp jawline and high cheekbones, slightly curved brows, notably darker than his hair, and a straight nose. His lips are rather thin and he has a little scar through both of them on the left side. 
He has a somewhat caramel-ish skin tone, which is a notable contrast to his light hair and eyes. 
Tristan didn’t modify his body too much, at least not voluntarily. The only body mod he had made because he wanted it is an aiming enhancement in his eyes that helps him locate and track targets more easily. The other is a bionic hand (right hand) he got after losing his right hand during his service in the army. This hand assures a tighter grip, almost no pain signal to the nerves, unless important tech parts are damaged, no fingerprints on the right hand, and a punch that hurts way more, due to the harder material. It’s sensitive to touch and reacts to his brain’s commands just like a normal hand, so he’s not facing any issues with it. 
[b]Clothing and equipment:[/b] Tris prefers practical clothing and usually goes for either army pants, tops, boots and a combat jacket, or sweatpants, tight shirts, because loose ones would get in the way, and sneakers. He still wears his old dog tags, more out of habit than melancholy. 
Though he can handle a variety of weapons, he doesn’t have too much of them. He always carries a flip knife with him, and depending on the kind of mission he’s going on either a two handguns and a sniper rifle, als well as a longer knife (for assassinations), or an electroshocker, the knife and one gun (for anything else.) 

[b]Personality:[/b] Tristan is a calm, collected person. He doesn’t rush into things, nor could he be considered reckless in any way. Before he acts, he double-checks his decisions and he likes things going just as planned. However, if they don’t, he’s able to adapt quickly and shouldn’t be considered cowardly. He doesn’t wait too long, but instead uses the time he has. He is a brave, altruistic person, there’s no way around saying that, but he prefers if he doesn’t have to be. In his opinion, no one needs a hero when a plan is waterproof. 
While he is a great leader, blessed with charisma and strong, good motives, he is very distanced from almost anyone, and anything, while working. He sets his mind to a goal and wants to achieve it. Though looking for the best way to get there and minimum losses, he thinks that sometimes, victory indeed stands on the back of sacrifice and that there are bigger things than a single, human life.
Luckily, he isn’t really in the position to make decisions as hard as that. He looks out for his people and makes sure they are alright, but not more than that. Tristan doesn’t like to get involved with the private lives of colleagues and while that grants the people he works with a high level of privacy, it also can make him seem very detached, sometimes indifferent, to an almost unsettling point. 
He has a lot of things going on inside below the surface, but rarely lets people see it. Tris is in control of his emotions, at least most of the time, thereby being a somewhat closed book to everyone, but the people very close to him.
People like his little brother, whom he loves deeply and even though they’re so different and get lost in translation quite often, would do almost anything for. Family hasn’t been important to Tristan for a while now, but his brother definitely is the only exception to that. 
Or people like Raven, even though their friendship, that took a long time to build up, relies on him not asking about her deeper emotions and her not asking about his quite much. But she definitely is one of the people allowed to see below that layer of polite distance. 
Deep inside, Tristan isn’t indifferent or cold towards the people he works with, Neon Grey as a whole, or people in general at all. He’s simply afraid that feelings might cloud his judgement and that is something he doesn’t ever want to happen again. Because, yes, he is afraid of failing like only a person who’s known severe failure can be. 
In private, Tris is still a very calm person, avoiding fights and conflict simply by being too collected and too serene to lose his temper. Fighting with him isn’t entertaining, and rarely leads anywhere, because he is a very confident person with enough self-value to stand up and walk away from a fight, simply because it is not worth his time. 
He will fight, though, if it’s necessary or hitting too close to home, because there are certain topics, like for instance the well-being of his brother, he could never walk away from, even if that’s not plain to see at first sight. 
Tris doesn’t like accepting help and tends to think he has to do everything alone. Seeing that he doesn’t, usually takes him some time and has a chance of making him a little grumpy, but he’ll be thankful afterwards.
Tristan generally isn’t just coldness and distance. He is very protective over the ones he loves, even though he doesn’t let them see it. Not because he’s ashamed of it, but simply because he sees that most of the time those people can very well look out for themselves and he doesn’t want to put himself into the role of a protector, because it might make them feel smaller or reduced to something they’re not. 
He’s clever and a good conversation partner, especially if he’s in a good and relaxed mood. Tris is easy to be around and has a calming aura, making it easy to get comfortable with him. And man, does he have stories to tell. He might not be easy to get to, but putting the required effort into it is worth it.

Someone so afraid of failure that he’d rather shut everyone out than let them become casualties of his wrong decisions.
