In 2021, the world was in a state a pandemonium. American was still at war with the Middle-East,for atleast 20 years now. In 2022, Korea and Russia joined forces with the Middle-East to try and eliminate America. Africa also begun a dispute with America because America has started taking advantage of Africa's newfound oil and riches. Soon Russian scientists teamed up with scientists from Korea in an attempt to develop a new type of biological weapon to use to take out the U.S. They developed a virus that would appear to be a normal flu, but was lethal. Soon the scientists became carriers of the virus and were unaware of this because the virus had evolved to be undetected. Korea soon sent the virus over to America in missiles. These missiles were intended to land in heavily populated areas throughout America and to completely decimate the U.S. But America sent missiles and destroyed the missiles, but not the virus. The virus drifted into the ocean and infected the coast of most continents. Ship crews and swimmers were among the first to be infected with this virus. Soon after, the Korean and Russian scientists were killed by the Russian government and in their brains were where the virus began to evolve quickly. Those who attended the scientists' funerals became infected. In 2025, Korea and Russia surrendered. By this time the virus had infected a large populace and was still unknown. In the summer of 2026, there was a small outbreak, the first stage of the virus, of the virus in Korea and the surrounding areas. Witnesses said that the people suddenly died, and then came back again with basic human instincts and abilities. They could run poorly, walk, smell, eat, hear, and see. Korean military quickly controlled the chaos. The media covered it up simply by calling it "over exposure to chemicals and drugs," referencing to the nuclear exposure in the area and the growing drug market in Korea.. As the virus was making large progress in evolution in Asia, it took longer elsewhere. Then in 2027, as if the virus had planned, there was a massive death toll that ranged between 3 to 4 billion people in a week. Included were the relatives of the scientists and the soldiers who were in Korea in 2022-2025. After the initial outbreak, the people who had died "came back to life" and started to roam the streets. Three months later almost the entire population of the Earth was gone. Only a few thousand possibly survived.


The starting point for this Role-play will be Miami, Florida.


Rules/Regulations
1. All Beta rules apply.
2. Try to keep your character in an occupation you have knowledge over
3. No Godmodding or giving your character unfair advantages, such as an arsenal of guns, the only known cure, an unbreakable fortress.
4. Keep in mind that most law enforcement and military personnel would be the first on the scene to fight the disease, so there they would have been the among first victims, therefore after the initial outbreak very few military and law enforcement personnel would be still alive.
5. Participants in this roleplay must submit a character sheet on this OOC for me to approve.

(This is my first official Role-play, so bare with me, I'm not exactly used to this process)

Full Name:Rafael Cabrera
Ethnicity: Cuban-American
Previous Ocupation: Catholic Priest and Florida Army National Guard Chaplain. Held the rank of Major, Chaplain's Corps.
Appearance/Description:Rafael stands 5'10" tall, weighs 210 Lbs, which is acceptable for a 40 year old Catholic Priest. Rafael is in decent physical condition as a result of good genes and exercise. He rides a bicycle frequently, he goes for runs and has been training in martial arts for the past six years. He enjoys the feeling of endorphins pumping though his veins. It gives him a great pleasure which keeps him in tune with God and Jesus. Rafael wears a white shirt under a black vest with the traditional Catholic collar; black trousers. He has traded in his black low quarter leather shoes for a pair of black combat boots, keeping his trousers tucked into the top of his boots. He also wears the US Army issue Combat Assault vest over his black vest and white shirt. This is an article issued to him by his NG unit. He carries the bible, a Corpsman's aid kit, a 9mm pistol, a machete and two different knives.

Personality/psychological profile: Rafael is a positive, upbeat man who gives everyone the benefit of the doubt prefering forgivness and compassion over hate and anger. The viral outbreak that has turned the former living citizens of Miami greatly disturbs Father Rafael. He is torn between the teachings of Jesus Christ and dealing with the infestation. He has killed in the name of survival and prays daily to Jesus for forgiveness. Rationalizing these barbaric acts is an excruciatingly painful experience for Father Rafael.

History/Background/Experiences: Rafael was born in 1985 to Federico and Irena Cabrera. Federico worked as a Corrections Officer at South Florida Reception Center in Doral, Florida. Irena raised four children including Maria (`84), Rafael (`85), Miquel (`87) and Lucia (`89). Irena was a school trained registered nurse and had worked before she had children, later returning to the Miami Children's Hospital.

Rafael graduated from Barbara Goleman Senior High School in 2003. He immediately joined the US Navy as a Corpsman, attending Basic Combat Training at the Recruit Training Command in Great Lakes, IL. Rafael then went to Combat Medical Corpsman training and was later assigned to 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment in Hawaii. Shortly after arrival at Kaneohe Bay, Marine Corps Base, he was shipped to Okinawa, Japan. His time in Okinawa was limited as he was shipped to the Philippines where his unit conducted joint missions with Navy SEALs, SWCC and the CIA conducting terrorist surveillance and security mission in Zamboanga Bay. While in the Philippines, there was a constant threat of attack from the Abu Sayyaf.

In 2004, Rafael's Marine unit boarded US Navy ships on a deployment around the South Pacific. This was more of a pleasure cruise for Rafael and the Devil Dogs of 1-3, stopping at various Pacific Islands for R&R. It was a well deserved break from the tense moments experienced in the Philippines.

By October, 2004, Seaman Cabrera and 1-3 Marines found themselves in Iraq. The battalion fought the second battle of Fallujah to clear the city of insurgents and reclaim the city. This was a bloody battle. One in which Seaman Cabrera gained more experience than most ER doctors receive in a year. It was a bloody traumatic event and would haunt him for the rest of his life.

A year later, October 2005, Seaman Cabrera and the Marines of One Three returned to Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. Seaman Cabrera was promoted to Petty Officer Third Class and reassigned to 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment at Camp Lejeune, NC.

In July 2006, 3/2 Marines deployed to Al Anbar Province in Afghanistan in the city of Habbaniyah. During this deployment, PO3C Cabrera received more experience patching up wounded Marines. This was also a time for self-reflection and becoming closer to God. He prayed daily and vowed to give his life to God if he survived his time in hell.

In early 2007, the Marine battalion returned to North Carolina and that summer, Rafael ended his time in the Navy. Yes, he was a sailor, but felt more like a Marine because of his time spent with them in combat. These experiences laid the foundation of the man he was to become both good and bad.

Upon his return home, Rafael Cabrera enrolled at Saint John Vianney College Seminary in Miami. He spent the next ten years in the Seminary prior to his ordination as a Catholic priest. Upon graduation from Seminary, he now he holds a Master of Divinity degree and has given up his life for the church.

For seven years, Rafael Cabrera worked and lived at St Joseph Catholic Church in Tampa. Within the past year, Father Rafael has returned home to Miami accepting a posting at Saint Monica's on NW 191st Street in Miami Gardens. He found it difficult at first settling into his new position back home, but is slowly growing accustomed to it. He works with Monsignor Gilbert LaChapelle, a seasoned priest in his late 60s.

Additional Information:
- Rafael has kept up with his First Aid training by taking regular first responder and CPR training through the local Red Cross.
- Father Rafael enjoys bicycling and does so frequently on his free time.
- Two years after ordination, Father Rafael began training at Karate America in Tampa Florida and then transferred to the Miami school when he changed parishes. He now holds a 2nd Degree black belt in Krav Maga.
- Father Rafael has kept up with his shooting skills by visiting a local range. His weapon of choice is the Berretta 9mm semi-automatic handgun.
- As a result of his frequently sleepless nights, dreams from experiences in Fallujah in 2004. He has an undiagnosed case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This is something he hides, but has woke up in cold sweats frequently.
- When dealing with his night terrors, Rafael often hides his anxieties in a bottle of wine at the local liquor store or lounge.
- Within the year after ordination, Rafael joined the Florida Army National Guard as a Chaplain. Eight years later, he holds the rank of Major.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. "

Name
Helena Davenport

Ethnicity
White British

Age
24

Height
5'6

Weight
Around 60kg/130lb

Gender
Female

Appearance
Though Helena always liked to maintain a neat, shoulder length bob before, the unfortunate lack of resources has resulted in a less unkempt length for her thick, dark honey-coloured hair. Her skin is pale, with a smattering of freckles, and her eyes are a light hazel colour. She has a fairly narrow, angular face which seems almost in accordance with her orderly personality. She is of average height and build. Her clothing consists of an old pair of jeans, thick-soled boots and her trusty white (well, it's faded into more of a grey colour, now) lab coat, when she works on synthesising a cure during the day. Otherwise, she simply wears an old jacket. Fashion is not something that she has ever consider high on her list of priorities.

Personality
Helena is the personification of order. She likes cleanliness - verging on the point of obsessive compulsive disorder - and whilst this clinical approach has made her a great scientist, her social life has suffered. She doesn't have a great deal of experience in dealing with people and feels out of her depth, when in the vicinity of someone in need of emotional reassurance or help. She is reliable and dependable, but, apart from in consideration with her work, she is not a big risk-taker. She is extremely hard-working and enjoys throwing herself into tasks in order to distract herself from emotional turmoil. People would consider her a pessimist but she would argue that she is, in fact, a practical realist.

History
Helena was born and grew up in a small British town, in Northern England, with her mother, father and older sister, Rachel. Her parents were both ambitious and opinionated - being both a dentist and a chiropractor - and frequently expressed their views and expectations of what they wanted their daughters to do and become. Rachel, however, disliked academia and authority; to the intense dismay of her parents, she only just scraped through her exams and got a job at a local hair salon. It wasn't great pay, but she was happy. Helena, however, loved science and aced her own exams, becoming her parents' clear favourite as she showed huge academic potential. Terrified of failing and receiving the dreaded disappointment from her parents, she threw herself into studying at the expense of her friends. Apart from when she came top of her class, her parents were hard to please and her self-confidence deteriorated, whilst her ability to supress her emotions improved considerably.

She studied Chemistry at University College London and naturally gained a first. She was employed by a firm that exported Industrial Chemicals straight out of University, which was well-paid and interesting and they offered to fund her PhD. It was unnecessary - since her parents could afford it - but she accepted, enjoying the independence it gave her. She travelled, first to Paris, France, to work on a project involving studying synthetic chemicals in food and then to Miami, Florida, to work in a research to aid in synthesising a cure for a mysterious disease that was sweeping across Asia. As she became more and more involved in the project, she realised that this was no ordinary pandemic. There was something different about the virus. As the population took a nosedive, she tried to fly back to Britain but air traffic had been ceased at that point, in an attempt to reduce the international spread of the infection. Stuck in America, she used her extensive funds to buy herself a small place on the very outskirts of Miami and continued to work on finding a cure.

She has been there, ever since.

Former Occupation
Chemical Researcher

Other
She misses her older sister, Rachel, despite the fact that Rachel resented the favouritism her parents showed Helena and was never particularly nice her, as a result
She jogs occasionally, to clear her head
Even though her parents are strict atheists, she would consider herself agnostic

Name-Desmond White
Ethnicity-Caucasian
Age-20
Height-6 foot 5 inches
Weight-200 lbs
Gender-Male
Appearance- Desmond had an olive complexion which gave him a naturally tanned look. He had dark chocolate brown hair that was usually mistaken for black. His hair is kept buzzed because of how thick and voluminous it gets when it grows out. It usually grows back quite fast. He had thick, dark eyebrows, and under those dark Italian brows are a pair of hard, stone cold, brown eyes that seemed to notice every little detail everywhere. A scar descended diagonally from left to right across the middle of his left brow. He has a rather small nose that led down to a pair of small lips. He had no facial hair, but he could easily grow as beard and moustache within a couple of months if he desired to do so. He had a rather defined jawline, not squared or chiseled, but a definite, angled jawline. He has a long neck with a prominent Adams apple which Desmond found quite annoying from time to time. He had a pair of narrow shoulders, and a long arm branches off of each shoulder. All in all, Desmond's body was very lean, and even though there was not much muscle displayed, he was very strong he was not scrawny. He had abs on his chest, along with an assortment of scars whose sizes ranged from small to large. The most muscular part on Desmond were his legs, which had toned calves and muscular thighs. His apparel consisted of black combat boots, black cargo jeans, a green belt with a belt buckle with the BSA insignia on it, a white T-shirt, and a jean jacket without sleeves. On the back of the jacket there is a patch that says "Metallica Creeping Death" at the top, near the bottom 'Corrosion of Conformity", and at the very bottom "Harley Davidson Motorcycles".
Personality- Desmond can be an all-around guy that everybody likes. He is not picky when it comes to anything. Food, music, books, movies, he had no preference. His overall personality/style can change time to time, depending on his situation and mood. His style/personality is greatly influenced by others. When he is around country kids, his style becomes country and he becomes ignorant and stupid. When he is around calm people, he becomes down-to-earth and calm. Desmond has A.D.D. (attention deficit disorder) which is tied in with impulse control, emotions, and his anger. At times, he is able to control it, other times, he has trouble contoling it. Desmond doesn't do well under pressure, but if he finds a foothold on the situation, some leverage, it is all he needs for his courage to skyrocket and he eventually triumphs. Desmond is a very bright person, he can come up with plans within a moments notice and he is great with improvising. Desmond can become a jabberjaw, only when he is excited. He tends to over think, often leading him into discouragement, panic, or even him second guessing himself. He can be very forgetful due to his overstimulated brain. He has a very high tolerance level. During hard times, Desmond tends to look towards the future for motivation. Desmond can have a very hard time trusting. Ironically, contrary to him being forgetful, he has a photographic memory. He goes through extreme mood swings very often.
(I'll have the history in a moment)

Desmond is a Chameleon. I can empathize with that quality. It is one he and I share. Like Desmond, I am very adaptable to different situations.

Seeing as that is the one quality I pulled out of your CS, that is similar to my own personality, don't you think I might just be a tad biased regarding your question? :D

Okay, so, for the history of my character I have decided that little bit by little bit I will reveal more and more about Desmond. Also, I aplogize for my disappearance and I hope we can start this roleplay ASAP.

I am a slow responder for In Character threads. In fact, it would be rare for me to post Monday through Wednesday. Once a week is normal. If I'm really psyched about it, twice a week. No rush here, bro.
