      [justify][size=15pt]WARNING: This roleplay will have mentions of death, illness, corpses, violence, and some other sensitive topics. Please stay safe and don't join if these topics can be triggering to you.[/size][/justify]

      Humanity on Earth went out with a whimper, not a bang. The whispered remnants of a tattered species are scattered across seven continents, surrounded by the ruins of everything they knew. The virus swept away millions, billions of people, the ones who hadn't listened to the frantic almost-two-seconds-too-late warnings on the tv to [i]stay indoors and don't leave until the okay is given[/i] but by the second week the okay was never given because the scientists and announcers were [i]dead and gone[/i]. And so the people left. And in the remains of the once-proud United States, in the shell of Los Angeles, with towering, decrepit apartment buildings looming over the empty streets as a testament to the people who once lived there... A signal goes out. [i]"Hello? Hello? Is this thing working? Hello?" "Stop saying that. It's working, just go." "Ah, yes, hi! This is a message for any survivors who live in the-on the continent of-in what's left of the good ol' United States! If you are in need of shelter, please try to head to LA! We're in the Costco on-What was it? South Palm and Commonwealth! Next to Target! Huge solar panels on top! You can't miss it! Bring whatever you have! We'll need it!" "You sound dumb, gimme the mic." "Fine." "This is a message to all survivors. If you are in the area, please find the Costco on South Palm and Commonwealth. We are near a Target, Home Depot, and Toys R Us. I repeat. If you are in the area..."[/i]

      [justify]Rules/Guidelines
      - This is NOT sci-fi, please stay as realistic as you can with a roleplay taking place in a post apocalypse caused by a mystery virus and-just keep away from the holograms and glowy swords okay (fake ones would be hilarious though)
      - No godmodding.
      - Keep it PG-13 at the most, fade-to-blacks are always appreciated.
      - Swearing should be kept at a minimum.
      - Please try to include others and involve people so nobody feels left out!
      - Decent grammar and spelling is always appreciated!

      Info
      This takes place weeks after a devastating virus wiped out most of the world's population, leaving behind a couple million or so survivors spread across all 7 continents. In Los Angeles, a small group of survivors have set up a home in an abandoned Costco and the buildings surrounding it. (Yes, you can actually go find the Costco in question, you can find it on Google maps if you search "costcos in la".)

      -GENDER- Female

      -APPEARANCE-

      -HEIGHT + WEIGHT- 5 ft, weighs 115

      -FAVORITES- She loves old movies and classic literature. In particular she loved the Mad Max series and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Her favorite book was Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. She also loves music and she loves playing the violin.

      -TALENTS- Acrobatics and a form of Russian martial arts called Systema which includes, but is not limited to: hand-to-hand combat, grappling, knife fighting, and firearms training. Training involves drills and sparring without set kata. In Systema, the body has to be free of tensions, filled with endurance, flexibility, effortless movement, and explosive potential; the "spirit" or psychological state has to be calm, free of anger, irritation, fear, self-pity, delusion, and pride. Systema focuses on breathing, relaxation, and fluidity of movement, as well as utilizing an attacker's momentum against him and controlling the six body levers (elbows, neck, knees, waist, ankles, and shoulders) through pressure point application, striking, and weapon applications.

      -HISTORY- Karou was born in America but she moved to Russia when she was two because her grandmother who lived in Russia was very sick and her father need to be there. While in Russia she befriended a boy named Ermolai. When she was older Ermolai's father taught both of them Systema. She also learned both English and Russian. When the apocalypse occurred she had been back in America for summer vacation.

      -NAME- Johnathan Kimbrough

      -AGE- 24

      -GENDER- Male

      -APPEARANCE- John's hair is a very dark blonde, bordering on the edge of brown. His build is that of an athlete, his muscles defined but certainly not as much as a body builders. His eyes are a bright green, and his overall appearance can truly just be described as average.

      -HEIGHT + WEIGHT- 6'1, 185 pounds.

      -PERSONALITY- John is friendly with most people, and tends to me more open than he should. Though he isn't the quickest to trust and will lie when needed, he is fairly loyal to his friends, though he certainly wouldn't save even his best friend.

      -FAVORITES- He enjoys the summer, is someone you might consider a 'night owl,' and despite generally being healthy has a particular liking of twinkies.

      -FEARS- He has a fear of dying alone, being forgotten, and being trapped in a small space for a prolonged period of time, like a lesser version of claustrophobia.

      -TALENTS- He has decent aim with a pistol and rifle due to visits to a firing range, is fairly strong and can handle himself in a fight, with our without a weapon.

      -HISTORY- John grew up in a fairly average household, his parents never got divorced despite the arguments they had, and even a few scandalous acts committed by both mother and father. His father took him out to the gun range every now and then once he was able to, which contributed to John's average skill with guns.

      -OTHER- Nope

      -NAME-
      Etiennette Villeneuve

      -AGE-
      26

      -GENDER-
      Female

      -APPEARANCE-


      -HEIGHT + WEIGHT-
      5'4", 110 pounds

      -PERSONALITY-
      Etiennette is a no-nonsense type of person. She's cynical and serious, and usually speaks with short, curt sentences. She enjoys teaching, and had just started working at the local university in the English department when the virus hit. She's assumed a leadership role and asserted herself among the people living in the Costco, and is proving herself to be a relatively capable leader. She dislikes small talk, and prefers to get straight to the point. Etiennette isn't afraid to speak her mind, and tends to come off as rude.

      -FAVORITES-
      -Teaching
      -Red
      -Mac n' Cheese
      -Horror Films
      -Thrift Store Jackets

      -FEARS-
      -Loneliness
      -Death
      -Getting sick

      -TALENTS-
      -Good Leader
      -Intelligent
      -Good memory

      -HISTORY-
      Etiennette's family was rather well-off, and she was sent to a high-end boarding school as soon as she was old enough. Her intelligence put her ahead of her class, but she had trouble making many friends. She spent her free time either studying or tutoring, the latter of which she enjoyed immensely. She graduated top of her class and immediately set off to college to become a teacher. She had been teaching at the university nearby the Costco for just under a year when the virus hit. After leaving her home and finding most of LA deserted, she decided to try and fix what had happened.

      -APPEARANCE-


      -HEIGHT + WEIGHT-
      5'8", 153 pounds

      -PERSONALITY-
      Frankie is a bubbly, charismatic type, skilled at reading people. They're not a stranger to hardship, but that doesn't make them tough- they're a big baby under their layers of carefully constructed joy. They're not opposed to working alone to get things done, but they prefer teamwork above anything else. They've got a tendency to go off-topic or say unnecessary things, much to the chagrin of some people.

      -Cooking
      -Food
      -Blue
      -The Smell of Old Books
      -Stars

      -Darkness

      -TALENTS-
      -Decent Cook
      -Charismatic
      -Perceptive

      -HISTORY-
      Frankie grew up in San Francisco to a lower middle class family. Their mother was a widow, and they often didn't have the same luxuries their classmates owned. After graduating high school, they were unable to afford college, so they instead got a job in the kitchen at a local diner. They found that they did well at their job, and discovered a new passion: cooking. When the virus hit, their mother, and as such, only close family, died. They heard Etiennette's call for other survivors over the radio and became the first person to join her.

      Nathaniel became her guardian, having been 24, and helped her throughout the rest of her life despite his addiction to alcohol. When the outbreak happened she was at the craft store and was unable to reach their home in time. Nathan had been still on the lawn, and she didn't check if he was still alive. She got scared. She didn't go inside, and ran off to hide in a nearby tree when she had heard scuffling.

      -HEIGHT + WEIGHT-
      5'8 | 142lbs

      -PERSONALITY-
      Nathaniel has been different since his mother died. He used to be similar to his sister, but since then he had resorted to alcoholism. Nathan is quiet and reserved, and dislikes large crowds. He has anger issues that are clearly visible, and hes easy to set off. The only person he really cares for is his sister, who has a startling resemblance to their mom.

      -HISTORY-
      Nathaniel suffered the loss of his mother from bone cancer alongside his sister Roxanne. They lost their father earlier in life. He took over as her guardian, and got a job at a mechanical shop. He was studying to be a pharmacist at the time, but dropped out due to needing to take a full time job. Nathan was always trying to appease his sister, and liked to surprise her with small gifts like new pastels or a set of paintbrushes.

      But, he turned to alcohol for his harder problems to solve. He became addicted to it, and whilst he was able to keep his job, he was demoted and was earning less, so Roxy began selling paintings to help with the bills.

      The outbreak came, and to deal with the stress he went out and got drunk. He ended up stumbling home and collapsed on the front lawn. He woke up, and found everyone dead around him. Hes now travelling, looking for his family, and is anything a place to stay.

      WARNING: This roleplay will have mentions of death, illness, corpses, violence, and some other sensitive topics. Please stay safe and don't join if these topics can be triggering to you.


      Humanity on Earth went out with a whimper, not a bang. The whispered remnants of a tattered species are scattered across seven continents, surrounded by the ruins of everything they knew. The virus swept away millions, billions of people, the ones who hadn't listened to the frantic almost-two-seconds-too-late warnings on the tv to stay indoors and don't leave until the okay is given but by the second week the okay was never given because the scientists and announcers were dead and gone.
      And so the people left.
      And in the remains of the once-proud United States, in the shell of Los Angeles, with towering, decrepit apartment buildings looming over the empty streets as a testament to the people who once lived there...
      A signal goes out.
      "Hello? Hello? Is this thing working? Hello?"
      "Stop saying that. It's working, just go."
      "Ah, yes, hi! This is a message for any survivors who live in the-on the continent of-in what's left of the good ol' United States! If you are in need of shelter, please try to head to LA! We're in the Costco on-What was it? South Palm and Commonwealth! Next to Target! Huge solar panels on top! You can't miss it! Bring whatever you have! We'll need it!"
      "You sound dumb, gimme the mic."
      "Fine."
      "This is a message to all survivors. If you are in the area, please find the Costco on South Palm and Commonwealth. We are near a Target, Home Depot, and Toys R Us. I repeat. If you are in the area..."


      Rules/Guidelines

      - This is NOT sci-fi, please stay as realistic as you can with a roleplay taking place in a post apocalypse caused by a mystery virus and-just keep away from the holograms and glowy swords okay (fake ones would be hilarious though)
      - No godmodding.
      - Keep it PG-13 at the most, fade-to-blacks are always appreciated.
      - Swearing should be kept at a minimum.
      - Please try to include others and involve people so nobody feels left out!
      - Decent grammar and spelling is always appreciated!

      Info
      This takes place weeks after a devastating virus wiped out most of the world's population, leaving behind a couple million or so survivors spread across all 7 continents. In Los Angeles, a small group of survivors have set up a home in an abandoned Costco and the buildings surrounding it. (Yes, you can actually go find the Costco in question, you can find it on Google maps if you search "costcos in la".)

      Etiennette is a no-nonsense type of person. She's cynical and serious, and usually speaks with short, curt sentences. She enjoys teaching, and had just started working at the local university in the English department when the virus hit. She's assumed a leadership role and asserted herself among the people living in the Costco, and is proving herself to be a relatively capable leader. She dislikes small talk, and prefers to get straight to the point. Etiennette isn't afraid to speak her mind, and tends to come off as rude.

Her intelligence put her ahead of her class, but she had trouble making many friends. She spent her free time either studying or tutoring, the latter of which she enjoyed immensely. She graduated top of her class and immediately set off to college to become a teacher. She had been teaching at the university nearby the Costco for just under a year when the virus hit. After leaving her home and finding most of LA deserted, she decided to try and fix what had happened.

      -HISTORY-
      Frankie grew up in San Francisco to a lower middle class family. Their mother was a widow, and they often didn't have the same luxuries their classmates owned. After graduating high school, they were unable to afford college, so they instead got a job in the kitchen at a local diner. They found that they did well at their job, and discovered a new passion: cooking. When the virus hit, their mother, and as such, only close family, died. They heard Etiennette's call for other survivors over the radio and became the first person to join her.
