[OOC] Bourbon & Glock (Heist RP, CLOSED)

Post by Dionysus [Rick] » Sun Jun 03, 2018 1:46 am

The Pitch:
Image


This RP will consist of a group of up and coming thieves attempting to make a name for themselves in the highly lucrative and risky world of criminal activity. You will play a new recruit of The Outfit, a fresh faced organization bank rolled by Elsie Jean van der Hoek and run by her partner in crime, Marcos Ladro. You will start out with simple jobs, the heist of a small town bank or theft of a local gang’s safe. After making a name for ourselves we will begin to take on more lucrative, and more dangerous, work. Taking down a heavily guarded truck transporting military grade CPUs, or stealing a priceless painting on the night of its premiere at a new museum.

Each and everyone of you are professionals, well, not exactly, but you will be. Pick one of the roles below, slap it onto your character, and mold them into a unique, highly trained professional that is a cut above the others.

The Crew
Image

The Grifter deals in trust and charm. They gain the trust of their mark, and then use it against the people who’ve entrusted it to them. They’re at their best in social situations and are good at acting, lying, and manipulating people. Pretending to be a businesswoman from Germany, convincing a Mark to buy a fake Rolex, or distracting a guard so the Muscle can knock him out would all be part of the grifter playbook.

Are you a grifter that excels at laying on the charm? Or do you go in, fluster your target, disorient them and get what you need in their moment of confusion?

The Hacker deals in information. They get it for the Crew, deny it to the Mark, use it to help the Crew, or manipulate it to take the Mark down. They usually do this by cracking computer networks and security systems, but Hackers are also often good with physical tools and obtaining items the Crew needs. Hacking a network firewall, eavesdropping on the Mark’s cell phone, and “airbrushing” a photo ID are all part of the Hacker’s trade.

Are you a hacker that does all his work from a remote location? Whether that be back at HQ or inside a white van just outside the bank? Or would you rather go in with the crew, using your gadgets to disrupt cameras, unlock doors, or take down a S.W.A.T. teams communications?

The Muscle deals in force. They engage in direct combat to put force on bad guys, getting them out of the way. Engaging in combat, sizing up a tactical situation, and intimidating a guard is part of being the muscle.

Are you the type of grunt to smack a back talking guard to keep everyone else in line? Or are you smooth professional, taking down a squad of police officers with your superior marksmanship?


The Burglar
deals in access. They get themselves and the Crew access by breaking through security systems, and they use access to steal items or information. Sneaking past a guard, cartwheeling through a room of laser sensors, and picking the Mark’s pocket is just a glimpse into the world of the Burglar.

Are you the type of burglar who can scale a wall with only her hands and no safety? Or the type who is a master safecracker?


Four possible roles, it’s up to you to make it unique. Also, pick out a talent or skill you excel at. Are you an excellent sniper? Can you hack bank security systems at a faster pace? Did you practice boxing? Are you a great cook? What’s one skill that sets you above the average criminal.


So, if you want to start a career with the Outfit, please Let us know your name, a little bit about yourself and what you do. Two to three paragraphs max. We are looking for 3 to four people so we can have a well rounded crew, so get to it.

first

Name: Neil Blair
Role: The Burglar
Skill: Safecracking
What's your deal: Master thief who retired years ago to take care of his daughter, Hailey Sparks, but feels the itch to get back into the life now that she's older. Looking for that thrill again, and making some money to send her to a great college instead of the community one she's currently attending. Specialized in safecracking but he's also decent at pickpocketing and talking his way into places he shouldn't be.

Name: Johanna “Jo” Engel (Flynn)
Role:The Grifter
Skill:Impersonation
Appearance:
Dark auburn hair, cropped in an asymmetrical bob ending just at her jaw. A smattering of freckles are splashed across her nose, and bright green eyes are lined by thick lashes. She has a thin frame, and stands at 5’4”.
What's your deal: Jo was adopted as a baby by a well-to-do family. She wanted for nothing, merely asking and receiving immediately. However, she quickly grew bored, looking for something to occupy her time. With finesse befitting a grifter far more experienced, Jo started flattering her way into exclusive groups, impersonating others to gain information, and smooth-talking her way through situation after situation, all the while taking capital from the elite and making it seem like their idea. The Outfit is just another in a long line of attempts to cure her boredom.

Name: Jadyn ‘Jade’ Flynn

Role: Burglar

Skill: Gymnastics/stealth

Appearance: Jade has dark auburn hair that flows just below her shoulders. Her bright green eyes are framed with thick lashes. A modicum of freckles is sprinkled across her pale face, particularly over the nose. Jadyn stands at about five feet and four inches.

What's your deal:Jadyn grew up in a series of foster homes around Los Angeles. She never stayed long and at fourteen, tired of being shifted from house to house, she ran away and started a long life on the streets. She’s slow to trust, relies mostly on instinct and street smarts, and has an intense dislike for people who have things handed to them. There are few people that Jadyn feels like she can rely on, but she does honor a strict code when working with groups. She’s done her fair of jobs alone and with a team, but has never stuck with one group very long, unwilling to become attached to a true crew.

Name:Sean MacNamara
Role:The Muscle
Skill: Marksmanship
Appearance Sean stands at just over six foot tall, sporting a well built but lean frame akin to the boxers that his nation tends to produce. He likes to keep his hair in an artful mess, and has taken to wearing smart suits for some odd reason.
Image
What's your deal:
Once a paramilitary soldier in his homeland, Sean entered the troubles late in the day. With peace came the decision to up sticks, and see where his talents would lead him. Mercenary, Soldier of Fortune, Hitman, all could describe the work he ended up doing. The challenge, that was all that mattered to Sean. Well the money mattered to, for he was good at what he did and wasn’t about to do it for free. A globe trotter, who left little but spent bullets and blood in his wake. Joining the outfit to him is another opportunity to challenge himself, and get paid.

Name: Isa Bell
Role: Hacker
Appearance:
Image
Skill: Computer languages
What's your deal: Born in Harlem, Isa never had much money. A teacher at school saw her drive and intelligence and put her to work on a computer, within months she was breaking firewalls and reading advanced code. She dropped out of school at 16 and started working for a security company. Treated unfairly by her coworkers for her gender and skin tone, Isa quickly became frustrated and bored. She quit and started looking for more exciting job positions. She has some money, but she's interested in more and what's it's like to live with money.

As for Isa, she is a foul-mouthed, laid-back teenager who doesn't care what anyone thinks of her. She's always chewing bubble gum and often shows people new pictures of her cat. She's strong-willed and aggressive in her stance with strong political views she's willing to argue anyone for.

Name: Renee "Rina" Holmes
Role: The Grifter
Skill: Silver Tongue
What's your deal: Renee's father once told her the most powerful tool in the world was the tongue. Though considering the mans poor life choices, sexual addictions and drug abuse it's entirely possible he was not referring to the power of the spoken word. But Rina made the best of the quote and lived herself a life of lies and deceit. Playing the unwary for fool, she claimed the role of the wolf amongst the sheep easily. Lately however, she questions if she really knows her true self, or if she's merely a fabricated lie.

Name: Sam Evans
Role: Hacker
Skill: Driving
What's your deal: Sam has been in foster care for the last 10 years, from the age of eight when he was removed from the custody of his drug-addicted, prostitute mother. His foster parents had a big house and whilst they cared for the basic needs of the children in their care, they took on so many foster children that their emotional needs took a back seat. Sam was quickly taken under the wing of one of the older boys, who he eventually began to refer to as his brother and who introduced him to stock car racing and NASCAR. He was fascinated by this world and as soon as he was big enough took every opportunity to get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, his brother was killed in a big racing accident around a year ago and Sam lost all enthusiasm for the sport but he couldn't shake his love of driving.

The death of his brother along with the residual affects of his early years caused Sam to spiral out of control. He dropped out of school and constantly picked arguments with his foster parents when he wasn't locked in his room on his computer. Since this had been going on for a year with little improvement (and since he was now 18), his foster parents decided to move him on so they could concentrate on the younger children, rather than waste the energy on helping him deal with his issues since he was due to leave the foster system anyway. He managed to find a cheap flat, but struggled to find steady employment and was desperately looking for any way to find extra money.
