Goddamn him.

I deserved to have his dinner after all the crap he put me through.

That's why I ate it. I don't care what he thought. He can just starve to death. Shove him in the pantry or something.

...it's his cooking, that's why it's so delicious. I'll keep him there maybe. He'll cook for me, in return he'll pay for the hell he's made to me.

What a sick joke. I can't think straight. Stomach hurts...

Here's mine~

Also, let's assume that this huge world has a huge continent called Earth, which has all the countries, but with other continents to the east of Japan/Australia and west of the US. That being said, Silent Hill is a city somewhere in the US. I forget where exactly, though. And the year is 2009.

Name: Zack Lightfang
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Race: Lynxan (Pronounced Lyn from Lynx, and kan like Sunken; Lynxan are anthropomorphic cats, with different species like all cats.)
Tribe: Lynxan-Tura (Similar facial/body structure to Turkish Angora.)
Occupation: High-School Student, recently graduated from Sophomore to Senior

Appearance: Zack has a rather small and child-like frame compared to other people his age. His face is similar, appearing 2-3 years younger than other Lynxan of the same age. His coat is bi-color of black and white, being a base of white and very large patches of black around his entire body, and his head having half black fur, with blue eyes. He wears a green checkered shirt unbuttoned over a white polo shirt, with grey jeans and white trainers. He doesn't have any other accessory except a white coloured analog watch (needles glow in the dark) and a blue Yin necklace, seemingly missing its Yang counterpart.

Personality: Zack is heavily principled and well-mannered, although he is incredibly shy. He is slow to make new friends and unless it's someone he knows on a close personal level, he will never make general conversation first, unless it's to break an awkward silence. When he begins talking to close friends though, he begins to take on a more lively characteristic. His demeanor is very child-like although he can show some degree of maturity when the situation calls for it. He has a firm belief that it's best to judge people individually than a group, and it's always best to understand both sides in any form of conflict. Aside from these particular ones, he never enforces any of his qualities or beliefs onto others, simply cautioning them if it is a bad one. He is also very empathetic and doesn't look down upon those with qualities that most of the society deems inappropriate. He also has an incredible adoration of animals.

Biography: He was born in Portville, several hours south from Silent Hill to parents who were of both American and Turkish descent. However, a few years later he moved to the nearby Shepherd's Glen, which was just downstream of Toluca Lake, the lake in that Silent Hill surrounds. Staying there for several years, his parents, who were rich had built a new abode, a miniature-mansion of turkish design, a mile or so south of Shepherd's Glen. He lived a normal life, then at the age of 16 decided to enroll in another school in another state. There, he began investing in a hobby of writing. He often writes stories and has a large collection of short fictional works, though none are actually published, simply shared between friends and others in his school. He takes a liking to literature and acting. His fictional works often drift between stories of animals and other fantasy stories. It was also there where he met his other 4 friends, and after finishing his Sophomore year, the group decided to go on a road-trip around the US.

SPECIAL:
Strength: 4
Perception: 7
Endurance: 4
Charisma: 6
Intelligence: 6
Agility: 7
Luck: 6

Special Item: Yin Necklace: Doubles the potency of healing items in rooms without enemies. Applies to all allies in the same room.

Trait: Organized: Zack suffers no AP costs when shuffling through containers, his own inventory or any bags he carries mid-battle.

Name: Chad Heartfield
Age: 26
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Tribe: Homo-sapiens
Occupation: Ex-military Officer

Appearance:
Chad has short dark brown hair, with brown eyes. He stands 6’1” tall with a body slightly more athletic and built than the average human –muscular but not world’s strongest man or Mr. Universe. His wears a somewhat tight fitting black shirt with dark blue jeans and black boots. He has a tribal tattoo that runs from his right shoulder down to his wrist that he got just after leaving the military. His face in stern looking most of the time even when he is not necessarily upset or serious. He has a short goatee –just stubble not long at all- and a scar that runs from the bottom of his left jaw bone down to the middle portion of his neck. He wears a pair of dog tags around his neck, one being his own and the other...

Personality:
Chad is not really a social butterfly but his concern for the people he holds dear shows in his actions rather than his voice. He is one to never apologize by saying sorry, rather he would give a gift or physically do something nice in form of saying it. However, he won’t take crap from anyone, when the battle plan or an objective has been set he will follow that path until the goal is met, no exceptions and no straying from the path unless it’s to save a fellow teammate from peril.

Biography:
Being in a family with a father who was in the military Chad was compelled, and somewhat coerced into joined the Army. He enlisted as a Specialist at the age of 18 due to his frequent contact and two year training from 16-18. During those two years they challenged his skills to find out where he would excel in the most. He was considered to be an expert marksman, scoring an almost perfect score on the Rifle test, missing only one bull’s eye by a hairline mark. He was also trained in methods of unarmed combat and sword work, where he excelled in disbarment over all others but was equally skilled in unarmed combat as well as swordplay. In his military career however he decided to become a sniper in the Army, where he went on covert ops assassinating various targets without detection. After numerous years (8 years) in the Army he climbed the ranks attaining the rank of Captain, but after a certain mishap in the military he abandoned this path and became a ghost to his family, only to make some new friends (you guys) whom he holds dearly and considers them to be family since his had forsaken him.

SPECIAL:
Strength – 7
Perception – 7
Endurance – 8
Charisma – 2
Intelligence – 5
Agility – 7
Luck – 4

Special Item:
Dog Tags(x2): When in combat gives everyone a boost in strength(Chad's) and endurance(the other's) (+1) ((they are both on one necklace chain so its really only one item but I there is a logical reason why they give the bonuses as they do))
Trait:
Military Expertise: Has the ability to change weapons or reload with out suffering an AP cost when in mid battle.

I wish someone would create the name of the town we stayed in and got together in before we went for Road Trip: Death Avenue. I'm too lazy and not knowledgeable to pick a random town in the US.

It'll be up to everyone else; I don't really care where it is. =p I mean, regardless we are going on a road trip around the US, and we happened upon Silent Hill. To be noted though, is that Silent Hill (at least in the movie) is near West Virginia.

((I'm heavily basing this on myself, though more than a few facts have been changed to make him more interesting))

Name: Tim Nickels
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Occupation: Unemployed

Appearance: Tim is a bit tall and lanky, with medium length brown hair, pale complexion, and blue eyes. He's often mistaken for a teenager. He's wearing a green t-shirt with a raccoon print on it, a pair of blue jeans, and white running shoes.

Personality: Tim is a bit non-confrontational, though by no means is he shy. He was born with a mild form of autism, making things that come normally to other humans such as body language difficult for him. This has given him a habit of studying his fellow humans, learning how to mimic their behavior so he can fit in better. He's gotten very good at it, but it's still not quite right, and casual observers can just tell there's something off about him. He tries to make up for his shortcomings by being talkative and friendly, and exploring his creative side with attempts at artwork and drawing. He likes animals, some joke that it's moreso than he likes humans, and he also enjoys anything that reminds him of his childhood, a more innocent time...

Biography: He hails from Seattle, where he spent most of his childhood. Graduating with honors from high school, he was employed for a short while after, but when he found himself unable to find work after losing his last job he became a drifter, wandering from city to city and doing odd jobs to get by. It was during this wandering that he ran into his new pack of friends, and has since more or less settled down. He's still unemployed at the time of the PbP, and not all the things he does for money are things he's proud of. He's not always able to pitch in as much as the other friends, and he acts rather selflessly towards them as a result, doing favors without asking anything in return.

SPECIAL:
Strength: 6
Perception: 7
Endurance: 4
Charisma: 4
Intelligence: 10
Agility: 5
Luck: 4

Items
Backpack: Gives a few more inventory
Laptop: Typically carried around in his backpack, he can get online if he has an access point, and has the cords to hook it up to just about anything that can be hooked up to a laptop. Outside of that, he has a large amount of data on his hard drive concerning his interests, and can use it as a melee weapon if he really must.

Well, as I said, I heavily based him on myself. I know that whenever I travel anywhere, my number one treasured item is my laptop. I can use it to get information on my surroundings, keep in touch with whoever I want to, entertain myself, and of course I treasure the creative works I've made and stored on there.
