“Honor amongst thieves.”

A saying… no, a promise, that was set down ages ago. We who deal in the shadows for anything that might gain us power, wealth… but under the safe guidance of honor and trust, to show that even under the most deviant of cause, there can be stability. We are the Aristocracy… an order that has survived catastrophes that most nations have not.

...Our ignoble order has long since become bogged down in an outdated and superfluous bureaucracy: the greed and motivations of generations long since turned to dust have set the burden of duty and culpability upon our shoulders...Qui bono? Who benefits...

Certainly not you or I, not our brother’s and sisters, none of the progeny of the Aristocracy have done for ourselves, it’s all for them, the ruling body of the Aristocracy, the Initiated. Ten men and women who hold the proverbial knife at our throats while reaching into our pockets to snatch away influence, infamy, and most important of all...wealth.

Each of you—of the old or new—has felt it: the subtle pang in your heart, the yearning for honor among thieves, and the coppery taste of resentment on the tip of your tongue. But despite your feelings you hold to the old traditions and swallow your pride. That ends tonight.

Among you walk those of us with the means and the will to sweep away the oppression of the Initiated. Three of us, the Progeny, have gathered together to show you the way. The ten are now nine and among the Progeny walks a man with blood on his hands...



Rules are as follows:
1. No God-Moding or Power-Playing
2. Literacy is a MUST.
3. No one-lining
4. Keep everything within the boundaries of the Moderators’ forbearance.
5. The password...Just answer a question for me, “What’s the price of your loyalty?”
6. No superpowers, magic, demons, or any of that jazz. We're set in the modern day.
With some differences...Lord knows I don't care to be a strict on geography. Be reasonable.
7. Behave, be good, be nice. Keep each other involved.

This is a collaboration between Kegan...err...RainFire, and myself. The two of us discussed and hammered out most of the details this evening and are in the process of arranging a third member to complete our progeny. The storyline is pretty self-explanatory, but there is a lot of room for backstabbing, subversion, deception, and general unscrupulous behavior. You’re free to all yourselves with each other to oppose or support us, but try to remember that it is the responsibility of each other us to add to and enrich the overall storyline. Stay close and communicate with each other. Kegan or I will start once we’ve reached...say...seven members. There is of course room for more.

Sitting in the rain, thinking up new ideas...
"My loyalty comes at the price of blood."

Name: Harper Eichler

Age: 27

Nationality: Germany

Biography: Harper was your classic thief case. He grew up in an orphanage, one on the bad side of Berlin. At the age of ten, he was recruited by The Aristocracy because they were in desperate need of "soldiers". His life didn't become easier because of this though -- there was one important person to him. It was his younger sister, who he begged for them to take with him, but they would not. Soon after though, Harper became a bit more roguish, wanting to see the only family he had.

One of the Ten put a stop to that. This man found his sister, and killed her silently in the night. She was found dead in her bed the next morning. When Harper found this out, he was shocked. He knew though, that it had to be one of those within the group. So, he decided he would do what they said -- just so that he could get better, and beat them at their own game. This group that he was taught by the members to be so great, was a crumbling piece of shit, as far as he was concerned.

As he grew older and became better at what he did, he started using his abilities amongst those in the group, to find out just who exactly it was that killed his sister. As he did, he met two others who shared the same view as him. It was with these two that a plot slowly started to come together -- one that would restabilize The Aristocracy, simply by killing the Ten who ruled it. And it was there that he found out, that it was one of the ten who had killed his sister. A man by the name of Ferrin Jualioz.

So, one night, they decided it was time to take one of them down. Needless to say, Harper persuaded the other two that it was Ferrin who needed to fall. Once he did, everything was set in motion. Harper had his revenge... but it was just the beginning.

Appearance: Harper stands at an average 5'11 (for Germans). He weighs a lean 160 lbs., seeing as it helps him in his profession. His eyes are a pale blue in color, but nothing spectacular. His complexion is pale, and his hair is blond and comes down just below his ears. His clothing constantly changes, seeing as how disguise is usually a part of protocol. There's a special tattoo on the upper part of his right arm, usually hidden by a shirt or something. Its importance is only known to a select few (the Progeny).

Skills:
- Master of 7 languages: German, English, Spanish (main dialect), French, Japanese, Mandarin, and A base form of Arabic that allows him to communicate with most Middle-Eastern Countries. He also has some knowledge in Latin, but isn't fluent in it.
- Social Engineering is his specialty -- he's a thief of information. He can tell when you're lying, and essentially talk you into killing yourself (not really, but you get the idea).
- Expert with knives -- loves throwing them at people. Particularly their faces.
- Pretty good with locks, but nothing fancy.
- CQC expert.

"My loyalty is yours to have."

Name: Maddox Harris

Age: 34

Nationality: American—born and bred.

Biography: Born in Long Beach, California, in the late 1970’s Maddox could be considered a scion of the Aristocracy, his grandfather being the founder of the now defunct West Coast Elite, an American-offshoot of the Aristocracy. Despite this fact or perhaps in spite of it, Maddox was recruited into the Aristocracy in a relatively unceremonious fashion, and many within the Aristocracy consider him an unwelcome outsider.

Maddox being the socially skilled and rational person that he is, chose to embrace this status, immersing himself in the training and mental conditioning that remained the only door open to him within the order. Over the course of his career, Maddox has orchestrated several large-scale, multi-tiered jobs that have garnered him an impressive amount of notoriety. His status as a black sheep in many cases provided him with the necessary autonomy to execute these missions. As a result of this and the unspoken popularity he possessed among the younger generation, the Ten “promoted” Maddox, giving him a title and a place as a political advisor to the Ten. The position effectively neutralized his autonomy and removed him from the field while making it appear that the Ten were rewarding a series of accomplishments, not wrapping up a potential embarrassment.

With his hands so effectively tied, Maddox had little choice but to seek like-minded individuals to ally with: forming the Progeny with two others. Harper Eichler was, in fact, supplied with the identity of his sister’s killer by Maddox, along with the information he would later use to murder the man.

The three of them have set in motion a very dangerous machine...

In my castle, plotting your demise
"My loyalty is priceless. You break it once and it can never be fixed."

Name: Nicia Kamber

Age: 24

Nationality: Greece

Bio: For generations, the household of Kamber has served the household of Romanos. The Romanos were a cruel bloodline and treated the Kambers without respect nor mercy. But underneath their disguise as servants, the Kambers were actually a family of thieves. As they served their cruel masters, they cunningly stole from them. One could say they were the oldest thief family in Greece.

As far as anyone could remember, the Kambers always belonged to The Aristocracy. With their fundings from the Romanos, and other rotten bloodlines, it can be said the Kambers were holding The Aristocracy by the seams during the hard times. Nicia Kamber was one of the young Kambers who were sick of being pushed under the dirty thumbs of the Ten. Her bloodline has taken grief and punishment for years before. If the elders won't take action, she would.

Nicia practiced daily and nightly. When the times and conditions were right, she raided, plundered, attacked. Anything to get the Ten's attention. She wanted to make sure they knew they were at the end of their own era. All to no avail. They would not take the bait. But someone else did. The Progeny, fellow thieves with similar ideas in mind. Albeit Nicia hated to work with others outside her family, she was convinced that thieves worldwhide needed to band together to take down the menace.

Appearance: Don't let Nicia's size fool you one bit. She may be only 5'4'', giving her the title of the Minature Menace, but she can whack you good. Her size and structure easily gives her speed and flexibility. Like her personality, her hair is fiery red that drap over her light brown eyes. Attire usually consists of tight shorts, long sleeved shirt, and a short sleeved jacket. The colors, styles, and brands change daily. What stays the same on any given day is her two bracelts. Her right symbolizes her place in the family. The bracelt is made up of four colored bands; Blue, Yellow, Red, Black. The family colors. Her left symbolizes her loyalty to the Progeny. To the untrained eye, it is nothing but a silver bracelet spotted with gold. With a flick of a wrist, the spots form together the word Kleftis.

-Skills-
Expert Scaler
Blackmarket Specialist: Need an item that is illegal? Nicia knows the perfect place
Fast Fingers. No. Don't even say it. Just think that she can make an item disappear in front of you without you knowing
Professional Liar
Skilled with poisoned needles. Has knowledge of a vast number of poisons, deadly and paralyzing.

...I really should have given myself some fighting skills before posting that template. I certainly hope you can find bodyguards in the yellow pages.

Is it okay to just post pics for the character-I see that you did Morph, but that may not be okay for everyone, so I figured that I would ask.

"My loyalty is bought and sold for compassion"

Name: Taylor Yorke

Age: 28

Nationality: American (United States)

Bio: Taylor was brought up in a family that appreciated strength, intelligence, and charisma. As such, his father expected Taylor to become someone great and famous. Unfortunately, he got his wish-Taylor is now on many wanted lists across the world, with one special stipulation; he doesn't need to be brought in alive. You see, Taylor had run into a little bit of trouble when his fighting career ended abruptly, and he was thrust into a life of crime.

He had started small, sure. But he had worked his way up to something that would eventually make him infamous among the rich; he had stolen the Armani sapphire from the world's richest man, who eventually pulled some strings in numerous governments to get the jewel back. Taylor has taken to hiding out in mansions that have recently become vacant-you can guess whatever you like as to how they became that way- and pretending that he is actually rich legitimately.

Appearance:
http://www.babble.com/CS/blogs/fame...en_gay-bathroom-julia-roberts-larry-craig.jpg

Skills:
Taylor is an expert demolitions man.
He is also an accomplished marksman, and smooth talker. He can't pick a lock to save his life though, and he is certainly no use with computers.

Theme Song: Never Take Friendship Personal by Anberlin.

Not happy with his bio, but hey, that's what I get.

I wouldn't make an exception just for myself, Double-EE. Well...I would, but not today. Yes, it's perfectly fine to select a photography, but I expect everyone to remember that wardrobe does tend to change from day to day. Once we're got out sixth, we'll kick things off.

"My loyalty is bought through strength"

Name: Ray Gonzalez
Age: 33
Nationality: Filipino
Biography: Ray was born into poverty like most are in the Philippines. He was raised familiar with crime and he himself was no different as a young man. He was in a gang by the age of 12. They started out as petty the ifs and typical thugs and over a few years, they built up secure territory that protected everyone who had ties with the gang as well as brought in a steady flow of money, usually through drugs and arms deals with the northern nations. Ray was appointed the head job of dealing with any enemies or threats that came their way and all the other 'dirty business' that came along with it. But everything changed when his gang interfered in what they thought was a typical deal.

Ray, along with the other heads of the gang, had come upon some information that a partner of theirs from America was cheating them of their money as well as making deals with their rival gang. So they thought of a plan to raid the Americans and rival gang. expose them on the spot, and then exterminate them. Everything went flawlessly up untill the point where they were ambushed by the police. It was a trap. From there on out, it was a man hunt for everyone who had ties to the gang. Ray fled from the Philippines to South America, where he eventually was recruited into a mercenary group and has been there ever since.

Appearance: At 5'10, and a stocky, muscular build of 245 pounds, Ray is a physically imposing person. He has a light brown complexion accented by his unusual dark brown eyes. His hair is black, kept close to the scalp in a buzzed fashion. His daily wear ranges from casual suits to camouflage outfits. He has no set attire.

Skills:

Combat specialist - He knows a variety of martial arts that include weapons(firearms included) and is also abnormally strong to say the least.

Excellent driver

Recon - Yes, big guys can be stealthy, too.

4 languages(Tagalog, Spanish, English, and French)

We're a'go, sports' fans. I figured I'd start us off with a little overindulgence, before we all slip the knife into between each other's ribs. One team, two units, you can either be helping break into MI5 to steal some intelligence data, or slipping into the Tower of London for a taste of a woman's bestfriend. Enjoy! Any questions, just hit me with them. >.> Well...Don't actually hit me. I'm fragile.
