The snow fell lightly from the empty dark sky, already falling for quite some time to create a small blanket of the cold white substance both around the large area and over the stray large pine trees that seemingly dotted the landscape. The sound of something crackling could be heard within the area, as the snow continued to fall, melting immediately as it came close to the radiating heat, brought on from the raging fires that accompanied the remnants of a large building. Laying seemingly lifeless on the slightly melted snow, a small body, various ripped wires and medical tubes could be seen one both the arms, and legs of the obviously female body, while much smaller wires stuck out from the back of her shredded and soaking wet clothes.
Suddenly, the slightest amount of movement was made, as the medium sized girl first moved her right hand, and then her left, pushing herself up off of the ground before standing on her legs a little shakily. Placing her face into her hands, wiping off any of the snow and water that was there, the 5’7 tall girl wiped her eyes as she turned around to look at the new environment she was in.
The look in her eyes was obvious, she had absolutely no idea where she was, nor did she know how she ended up to this moment, outside a large burning building, alone in a cold wasteland, with no one else, but her. The look of shock that appeared on the girls face was one of terror, as she noticed the large hole that was in front of her on the wall of the building,
almost as if it was punched through by some incredibly force. The blood that was present on her fingers, arms and even her face from after she tried to wipe the snow away, was also a mystery, one that along with many other that ran through her mind, would probably never be answered, if she stayed where she was of course.
Taking a few weak and shaky steps forward, the girl collapsed onto her knees in the soft yet freezing snow, not able to take any more as she started to cry into her hands. Suddenly, the sound of a bird crying as it soared through the air above her, caught her attention as she tilted her head and watched the bird fly away far into the distance.
“I...I wish I could be so lucky...” the girl said to herself as she looked back down to the ground as her tears started to come in even more harder, holding her hand up to her eyes in reaction. An intense and excruciating pain suddenly overcame the girl, as more and more tears ran down her face, while she held tightly onto the sides of her clothes.
Pain, pain of skin ripping and bones separating was all the girl could feel with every passing moment, she could have cared less for the large mounds that were trying to force themselves free on her back through her clothes. That was, until the cloth couldn’t take any more and two large white wings, resembling does that would belong to a dove, suddenly burst forth through small holes made by their appearance through her back, spreading and flapping with ease as they began to lift the light girl up from the ground.
Too afraid and scared to say anything as she watched her new wings flap in their new birth, the girl was soon carried away into the air, her strong white wings taking her away into the sky until she was nothing more then a small white spec, so much like the snow, that continued to fall from the sky.
~The Story So Far~
Verband, an organisation the whole world has come to know. Though people have found the items they produce to be quite remarkable, no one dares to ask how this company can make such products, and no one wishes to, unless they want to happen to them like so many others. No one quite knows how long this company has been around, as some even say its been around since the early 20th century.
This is as far as people would go to talk about the Organisation, fearing that this company had eyes and ears, everywhere. In truth, the organisation first began in the year 1953, over 130 years and possibly even older, as no more records go to as far back as this.
Even then, the company produced many items that proved successful to those at the time, and since then they’ve only released products that people want when they need them. No one joins the company of their own free will, people have been known to disappear from time to time, and once taken, those that are of use are told they may choice to work for them, mostly as guards and soldiers to protect the many institutions they control.
Some of the smartest men and woman over the years have been, asked, to take part with the company, in their work for newer and better products for people, However once people are taken and join the company, there has been very few incidents of which people would leave.
The process of people being taken, is not quite easy to point out when it first began, as over the many years the organisation have made sure to take only unimportant people, at first that is. The sudden increase of people disappearing happened however, in the year 2000 in which more then three hundred people went missing all over the country.
This great moment of people going missing was never explained, nor did anyone wish to want any explanation for fear of they too being taken. Though this moment was unimaginable for people, it proved quite useful to the Organisation to keep everyone under control and silence.
and to keep their silence.
No one has ever seen the one person who is in control of Verband, many believe that there is no such person and that the company is in control of more then one person No one is sure, though there has been sightings of a single man, one that has been with the company for so long yet seems to be the same person as he was back then. Such sightings have been normally around Verbands main headquarters, a huge heavily guarded building, almost like a fortress where all products are tested before use by everyone.
The most strangest thing of all about the building, is that while it looks huge on the outside, it is much bigger on the inside, with more then twenty floors buried deep underground where no one but those who have the highest clearance can enter.
Below are a list of specialist classes, in which you may have your character be particularly adept at. Every recovery unit has at least on of each of these classes along with a high tech mobile recovery vehicle, equiped with all of the lates in field technolody by Verband.
Classes for field work
Demolition – Speciality of this class, is access to high explosives, as well as information on certain combinations of dangerous chemicals.
Sniper – Speciality of this class, is almost pin point precision with most weapons. However, the sniper rifle is the most preferred of most weapons to them, with its long range.
Medic – Speciality of this class, is extensive knowledge of field medical procedures. When working within the Mobile Vehicle, Medics have access to that of the most advanced technology for treating injuries and aliments.
Defender – One of the most toughest of the classes. Able to survive and take the brunt of most head on attacks, a defender is encased in thick armor, in which helps them survive. This however makes them quite slow.
Forensics – Stays behind in the mobile recovery vehicle and conducts experiments on both evidence found at certain locations, while also on specimens held in captivity.
Grunt – Grunts are the basic of almost all classes, though one thing stands them out over others. While most classes work normally separately, the Grunt works in large teams of fellow soldiers, coordinating their movements and attacks to overwhelm the enemy in both attack and planning.
Mechanic – Like Forensics, Mechanic class stays with the Mobile Vehicle and are in charge of maintaining its continued running and efficiency.
Classes for the development by Verband
Machine Technicians – This class is for those who wish to work within the main headquarters of Verband itself, in which they are specialised with the creation of all mechanical devices and vehicles of any and all sorts. However, all technology must be approved by the head of Verband before any action is taken in their creation.
Surgical and chemical enhancement – The most brilliant and advanced scientists and doctors work in creation to medical products and theories that revolutionise the way in which surgery is done to affect the human body.
Broadcasting technician – A class that is responsible for all broadcasting transmissions between all teams that are out on patrol, as well as radio and other transmitting signals in which are picked up for analysis by Verband and its various companies.
Important Notes on the World in Operation Beharrlich
. The world in which this rp is set in, is that of the near future in the year 2080. Though this isn’t too far into the future, information going further back to the year 2000, is all classified except to those who work in the highest branches of Verbands main headquarters.
. Verband, the company and organisation in which this rp centres alot around, is basically the most important thing in this world for the rp. Everything and anything goes through Verband first, while products are mostly developed and made by them, meaning everything in this rp is almost certainly created by them in some way.
. Though people aren’t incredibly poor in this future, it seems that only a select few are classified as rich in this world, while everyone else is that of a governed military state. They are able to keep living and surviving but without Verband looking out for them, everyone would possibly perish with starvation.
OK heres how this is going to work, basically everyone is going to start on the organisations side and as the story progresses you will gradually find out more about what this company does and from the information you gather you can make a choice you can either assist the organisation to capture the girl or you can choose to help destroy the organisation the choice is totally upto you, however there are a few little rules that i wish to impose
1. no GM'ing PP'ing or the like
2. Sephiroth2 and My word are law in this RP
