We're a crime/mafia roleplay set in the present-day Chicago.

After bombing the harbour, the new gang in town, Enigma, all but declared war on the most powerful family in the city, the Bianchi Family. Police struggled to capture the culprits and were well on their way to build a solid case against the Bianchi, but their hard work was set back once the police department was bombed. Now, the war between the two sides is more heated than ever, and the casualties only tend to grow.

UPDATE 10 - 05/2017 There's...something rumbling, or perhaps brewing, among the people of Chicago.

UPDATE 09 - 04/2017 May is almost here, and we've decided to say goodbye to April with a shiny mini event! Thank you Bishop for the amazing idea, and for everyone who's getting involved!

UPDATE 08 - 03/2017 March is here! A few layout modifications jumped out of nowhere, nobody panic! Spring cleaning is also over and as such, claims and canon roles have been opened as we cleared out the inactive. Stay tuned for IC and OOC news & announcements!

Clara was born in Chicago. For 24 years, she has lived in the city that has been powered by darker, illegal currents. Prostituion, drug dealing, and weapon trafficking, and probably any other crime imaginable has taken place in the streets of Chicago, but some times even right under the police force's nose.
Her father, Chase Darwin, worked at Chicago PD for 30 years before retiring. During his time there, he had worked on many cases and dealt with many criminals, but the highlight of his career was his bust on a dog fighting ring. In the months before, there had been many reports of missing dogs as well as disturbing sounds coming from a warehouse in downtown Chicago. It didn't take long for him and some other offices to put two and two together and decide to investigate the location. When they entered the warehouse, they were immediately faced with caged dogs and loud, unsettling sounds coming from deeper inside the warehouse. They followed the noise and came upon the ring where the dogs were forced to fight. It was surrounded by a high, chain-link fence, which protected the onlookers (and kept the dogs inside) who were nearly as loud as the dogs engaged in fighting. They didn't even notice the officers until one had drawn their gun, shooting and killing the larger dog that had overpowered and was killing the smaller one trapped beneath it. The sound of the fired gun stunned everyone into silence, but only for a brief, tense moment before chaos returned and everyone was up on their feet and running. They had only gathered a small force, Chase and three other officers, not anticipating the sheer size of the ring. So they were unable to pursue many of the fleeing criminals, but they did manage to agree on pinning down one -- the man who had been set up directly behind the cage, sitting at a table covered with stacks of money. He had been trying to stuff some of the cash in his jeans and shirt, allowing Chase and another office to get between the back exit (everyone else was fleeing out of it) and the man. Without a way of escape -- another officer was covering the entrance where they had entered -- the man climbed the high, chain-link fence and jumped into the ring. It had two doors that led to where the dogs were held, Chase and the officers later discovered, but what the man failed to realize was that a dog was still in the ring. Sure, it was badly wounded and blood was probably obscuring its vision from where it ran from a large gash on its forehead, but it sensed the new presence in the ring and was immediately on its feet again. The man had rushed toward one of the doors, trying to open it (they were designed to only open from one side) but that was a fatal mistake that he wouldn't make twice. Not because he would learn, but because he would never get the chance to. The dog, though balancing only on three legs, lowered its head at the noise, muzzle wrinkling as it pulled back to reveal blood-stained incisors. It had been forced through hell, of that Chase had no doubt. But it had become what the criminals running the ring wanted it to be: a fighter, and it what would fight till its last breath. It lunged at the man, tackling his crouched form (the doors were short) and immediately latched onto his exposed neck. The man was dead in minutes.
With that criminal dealt with, Chase and the other officers managed to chase down two others. They arrested them and took them in, and when questioned on who was in charge of the ring, they revealed it was the same man who had been killed by the dog.
Besides the two criminals, the small unit also returned with all the dogs. The younger ones were given to nurturing foster homes or shelters, and were eventually able to be put up for adoption as the terror and aggression of the fights hadn't quite scarred them. As for the others, the ones they could help were helped but the ones lost to the aggression, who knew nothing other than fighting and survival, had to be put down.
Chase took one of the pups home with him, a small German Shepherd that immediately became the bestfriend of his young daughter, Clara, at the time. She named him Zack, and ever since he came into her life, Clara saw herself as a K9 Officer. Her love for Zack and the joy she recieved each time her father spoke of his job inspired her to do a job based on both: love of dogs and a passion for justice. Because even though her father retired with a weary expression and injuries he probably would've never had if he had not worked in the police force, Clara was determined to make change. She was hopeful and truly believed the Chicago PD was the only thing standing between civilans and the increasing crime rate.
Years later, Clara is where she always dreamed to be: working as a K9 Officer at Chicago PD. Zack is far too old to assist her in her work, so she was assigned a new dog: Boo, a young german shepherd who almost equals Clara in curiosity and energy. With Boo at her side, Clara plans to make change. She wants to get rid of the criminals making streets unsafe. She wants to see more teenagers in school than ones not and who roam the streets, finding themselves tied up in crimes 9 times out of 10. She wants it so badly that she will investigate dark corners, risking herself and Boo. She will dig up cases that were purposely forgotten and root out their source until she discovers it or is punished for being nosy, but even then she might not relent, just take the punches and keep going.
She truly believes in change. She knows how strong resistance in the city is and how it will push against her, but Clara will be damned if she doesn't do something. Even as Chicago PD was bombed and her overseers warned against investigating, wanting her to focus on rebuilding and help with restoring lost information and destroyed things, Clara still hits the streets. While the other officers may be wary of diving back into the pursuit of crime, Clara never stepped away from it.
about
Clara is a strong-willed, curious, and determined woman. She truly believes things can be changed in Chicago and that she can be a force of change. Some may deem her annoyingly curious, but Clara simply won't back down from a problem or case. Even if she's met with resistance or an impasse, Clara will find some way to keep moving forward. If that requires her to hit the streets and venture into places where her police badge could get her killed, then she'll do it. Because no reward can come without a risk, and Clara knew, from her father's time as an officer, the dangers. She won't shy away from them. She won't let a flash of a gun or the glint of a knife intimidate her.

Clara hardly does anything not connected with her job. With that being said, her social life is pretty much dead. She'll engage her fellow officers or people who could help her with a case, but not usually with the idea of friendship in mind. Sure, she is a cheery, positive person who is rarely seen without a smile curling her lips, but she likes to be a dependable person and with her work and how much it consumes her time, she wouldn't be able to be an ideal friend. She would rarely get to go out with friends, and even then she would be having an eye out for anything suspicious. With her father having been in the police force for a majority of her life, it's simply been engraved in her to seek out injustice and corruption and confront it.

friends
As mentioned above, Clara doesn't really look to have friends. It's not because she dislikes people, but simply because she hates the idea of letting others down. With how devoted she is to her job, she wouldn't be an ideal friend. She might agree on a date to go out together, but then something might come up at work (or something Clara simply witnesses out in the streets) and she no longer can attend. It would lead to a disappointing friendship and that would trouble Clara. So she doesn't really seek out friendships, though some times they might just happen. Clara is a friendly, optimistic person who can put a smile on almost anyone's face; some times people are just attracted to her positivity.
romance
Clara knows the dangers of being romantically involved with someone when in her line of work; she has witnessed it countless times with other officers and their families. However, Clara is still human and some times can't deny herself the pleasure of falling in bed with another person. That being said, Clara won't actively look for a partner. She is attracted to cleverness and certain features (brown hair is a big turn-on for her), but even if she finds those qualities in someone, she still probably won't act on the desire she might have for them. She doesn't like putting others in danger and if that means restricting herself and handling her sexual frustrations on her own time alone, then she will.
enemies
Anyone who endangers others is an enemy to Clara. However, she does believe people are redeemable and won't completely write someone off as heartless criminal (unless evidence says otherwise.)
other
I definitely want to explore a plot where she falls for a person from Enigma or Bianchi. And maybe not even romantically; maybe she comes to enjoy something about them and considers them a friend only to later be surprised when it turns out they're a criminal.
As well, criminal or not, but just someone who pushes Clara out of her insistent need to keep others at arm-length so they're not in danger.
And of course, I want to do a thread where Clara investigates too deep into a case about either Enigma or Bianchi -- a case they don't want anyone looking into -- and has to face the consequences for it.

about: Well, I'm always horrible at introducing myself. And I am a very awkward person, even online. I mean, it's not intentional I just some times say the wrong thing or something unrelated and it's just like .. ? But anyway! I love writing, and I'm currently attending an arts school (you go for your last two years of high school) and I'm there for literary arts so I'm writing all the time. With that being said, I might not be as active during the school year.
Hmm, as for my interests that would include: Orphan Black (Cosima Niehaus is an absolute gem), OITNB, GoT, writing, music, and of course dogs (especially large breeds as puppies.)

CLARA DARWIN & COLE TAYLOR

You said Clara needed someone on the dark side to fall for?

I kid of course, seeing Cole hasn't gotten the right tools in his shed to make that work :P

But Cole and her could become friends. Whilst Cole's part of Enigma, he's not as downright rotten to the core like many of his peers, and he's not a fan of 'change through violence' that seems to pervade in the minds of many other Enigma members.

Also, Cole's just not a bad guy as a person, he's just a guy in a position where crossing the law is the only way he can live right now, and he does it in the most 'innocent' way possible, compared to all the others that seemingly don't care about the collateral.

So maybe they can strike up a friendship, with Cole's down to earth and 'ordinary' demeanor not giving away the truth that he's a criminal. Or perhaps Clara already knows Cole from the times he has gotten into contact with the law, and they simply have a somewhat professional working relationship between cop and small-time crook.

Heck, I've said it before, Cole would even help cops along as long as Enigma or his loved ones aren't hurt by it.

Hey! And ha, yes, might be a slight problem in that department.

As for a friendly relationship, I think that would be a cool idea to explore. I like your latter idea of where perhaps Cole has come in contact with the law -- or Clara, specifically -- before. If she witnessed him doing something illegal, but not exactly harmful to others.. well, she would be more compassionate to him. As I stated in her form, Clara believes people are redeemable. Also, I didn't mention it, but she understands that some times circumstance forces you into a certain way of living. I don't know if you want to have had him been arrested, just for something petty and kept in jail overnight but then bailed out, or just given a warning if Clara witnessed him loitering near some cars (about to hijack them or something similar to that?) Either way, maybe she got his name and kept it in mind as she returned to the police department. There, she could've searched his name in the database and see what the system had on him. If you wanted to explore this, Clara could see who his father is unless the birth certificate was changed? If not, maybe seeing that he has a Bianchi as a father makes her suspicions about him swell. Clara decides to keep an out for him and eventually ends up encountering him again. Oh! Also, she could see that his mother died from cancer and maybe that makes her suspicions waver. She could wonder if his mother's battle with cancer had anything to do with him getting involved with illegal businesses.

Not sure how it would play out or go, but maybe they can reach a point where Clara is sympathetic to him and his cause (if he explains to her) but only as long as it keeps other uninjured and alive.

Well she wouldn't be able to know about his father unless his late mother told him, or Cole himself since the passing of his mother. Which is very doubtful, it's a part of him he isn't proud of even though he's done nothing with it. He hates the idea of him being part of a family that has done a lot of crappy things to the city, and he wants nothing to do with the knowledge either. He owes the Bianchi's nothing, and he wants nothing from them.

But they could simply know each other from him getting in trouble. Perhaps something completely innocuous like him getting in a fight and being dragged into the precinct for some interrogation. Seeing Clara is a younger member of the force, they can just toss her the interrogation because others don't feel like doing it.

Or we can skip the interrogation part, and Clara herself can break up a fight with Cole involved and they can go from there.

Okay, so no go on the father information.

Hmm, I think it would be better for Clara to meet him through the interrogation. But if he was brought in because of a fight then she probably wouldn't be as understanding/willing to hear him out. I mean, I read Cole wants change through less violent means but sometimes there is no other way.. would he try to explain that to Clara in the interrogation -- that he had no other choice? Because that would be the only way they could connect: their similar interest in change through non-violent means. If not, then they probably wouldn't have a friendly or neutral relationship; Clara would just view him as a violent criminal to keep an eye out for.

EDIT: Or given her optimism and conviction that things can be turned around, maybe she sees Cole as a person who can redeem himself or help her in her pursuit for change. But she would only latch onto that thought if he explained, even a little, of where he was coming from by working as a criminal to change things.
Then, they might can have the relationship where they share information with each other -- kind of like Quentin and Oliver in Arrow -- so both can work toward a better Chicago through non-violent means. But of course, it would be kept on the DL; her superiors obviously wouldn't understand her working with a criminal.
Oh! And if they had been communicating for a while, but then Cole has to do something violent for whatever reason -- he had no other choice, Enigma assigned him to it, etc. -- and somehow gets caught and arrested. Clara could be at the office when he is brought in and then is just like what the hell when she sees him. Because Cole could be in the position to reveal they had been communicating to perhaps soften the punishment he was to get or he could get some brief, private moments with Clara and explain what happened. She could be hesitant to listen because he had went against their aggreement, but is listening because she has seen something good in Cole. He could convince her and then she is doing everything to try and help him out of the situation.
Of course, just some ideas and only if you are game.

I wasn't thinking of anything as bad as irredeemable. Just Cole for some reason getting caught up in a fight (he's everything but one, really.), and everyone involved in said fight being brought in to sit in the cell for an evening.

It could also be even less than that, him trying to break up a fight and getting a few smacks on his head for his efforts. So he could be getting stitched up by EMT's whilst Clara is interviewing the people on the scene.

Cole's also a parttime bartender at Enigma's nightclub, which is a legit business, but Cole would undoubtedly try to deflect any unwarranted attention away from the club.

Oh, so more of Clara recognizing he has good intentions? Like if Cole is brought in for trying to break up the fight and this is brought up when those involved are interrogated.

If the case, where would you want to go from that? I know in your first post you said Cole would help the cops if it wouldn't hurt Enigam or his loved ones. Were you wanting to do a relationship like that -- where they help each other out?
