Prompt: What if Jurassic World never closed down?
Plot: This roleplay takes place in an AU setting where the JW theme park never experienced mass deaths due to the Indominus breakout and therefore never shut down and abandoned Isla Nublar. Also, Fallen Kingdom never happened either (yet??). Jurassic World is still open, the Indominus Rex project was a huge success and opened dozens of gates for hybrid attractions, and the park is booming due to the recent addition of the Indoraptor training program where elite Indoraptor Handlers are breeding and training the hybrids like they have done with velociraptors in the past for viewer entertainment and experimental purposes. However among the handlers, there is a group secretly conspiring to sell the trained Indoraptors to the military for profit right out from under the park's nose. Also worth a note, is that none of the characters from the movie exist in this roleplay.

RULES AND GUIDELINES
Death, bloodshed, violence, and swearing will likely happen in this thread. You've been warned.
The Indoraptors are kept in one large enclosure as a pack. They are trained in separate training paddocks and preform shows in a larger 'raptor arena', and are transported from place to place via comfortable holding pens connecting the enclosure, training paddocks, and raptor arena all together.
They are not all female like how all dinosaurs are female in the movies, to allow more character freedom and to allow breeding.
In the Indo pack, females are larger than males and are the dominant gender. It's not a requirement, but males should have more vibrantly colored streaks and spines than females
There won't be any hatchlings or pregnant Indoraptor characters yet
Try not to have like ten Indos and only two handlers. Handlers are unlimited, only two Indoraptors per person, genders do not have to be kept even :)
Handlers can train up to four Indos in a group
You do not have to sign up to be an Indoraptor Handler. Simply post a pic, name, short description, and whether or not the person is part of the group planning to sell the Indos to the military and you're set.
To be an Indoraptor though, please use the sign up form below. A must if you are going to be an Indoraptor, your Indo has to either be at least a little bit trained OR be capable of being trained if they are not. Your raptor can be as nasty and unruly and dangerous as you like and you are allowed to have them start off as completely untrained, but they must show at least a little sliver of hope of being trained and tempered or the handlers will have them neutralized because they are incapable of being trained and are a high risk hazard to the park and it's people. Just because your Indo has or will kill or injure people, does not mean it cannot be tempered and trained so you have a lot of freedom to make a nasty Indoraptor.
If a handler's squad of Indos are deemed eligible, the group can be selected to preform in shows in the raptor arena in front of millions of guests with their handler! In order to preform though, the handler must have a full squad of four Indos
You do not have to wait to be accepted, simply sign up and jump right into rping! If there is anything in your form that needs fixing then I will kindly let you know :)
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask!

My handler and Indoraptor!
"Watch your step with that one..."
Nicknames: May be referred to as Indi
Indigo is a perfect example of the adult female Indoraptor. Sleek and agile frame capable of graceful finesse but with a form possessing great sttength and endurance, she is definitely the largest female and hence the largest Indoraptor in the pack. She is pitch black in hue including the small spines on her head and neck, and the trademark streak along her sides is deep blue hence her name. Indigo's eyes are a vibrant amber color as is common for her species
The living embodiment of chaotic neutral. Indigo is a very dismissive and independent beast, seeming totally calm and obedient up until the moment she decides she's had enough of you. She won't kill you without reason, but she will definitely badly injure those who don't abide by her personal rules as a warning for future encounters with her. If you annoy or irritate her, she won't hesitate to snap and growl and tell you off or even throw down if challenged. If you piss her off enough, the female will suddenly snap into a violent aggressive frenzy and won't hesitate to snap at, harm, or even kill those who are deserving of her rage. In general, Indi is highly capable of being trained just so long as nobody is stupid enough to try to treat her badly. Because when someone wrongs her, Indigo doesn't get angry. She gets even
What commands does the raptor know?: She knows a few commands such as attack, stand down, and she also knows the word no. Knowing these commands is one thing. Obeying these commands is a different matter entirely
Is the raptor trained in anyway?: Yes
How well is the raptor trained?: Very little in terms of commands and obedience, however she perfectly understands English and human body language
Is the raptor new to training?: No
Is the raptor safe to touch?: Yes but be warned, she does not like execessive touching and dislikes humans invading her personal space for prolonged periods of time
Is the raptor safe to handle?: With proper safety precautions, yes
Is the raptor safe to be around?: Yes, just so long as you move slowly and avoid setting her off
Is the raptor eligible for shows?: Not yet, but the handlers expect she'll be able to preform soon with the right group
Is the raptor dangerous in any way?: Definitely
Is there anything else we should know about the raptor?: Indigo is to be handled with extreme care. She shows high promise of successful tempering and training if guided by a firm but respectful hand. She is not reccomended for newbies
Parents: None, created in the lab like most dinosaurs
Clutchmates: Two siblings (open/adoptable)
Handler: Persephone "Percy" Grey
Does the dinosaur have any medical conditions?: No
Does the dinosaur have any physical ailments?: No
How is the general health of the dinosaur?: She is very healthy and well cared for
Alice for short
23 years old
She is not handling any Indos
Having worked at the park as a ranger beforehand, Alice is no stranger to working around the dinosaurs no matter how dangerous. However, she is more inexperienced with actually handling said dinosaurs let alone training them. She's not a beginner but not an expert either. At this point she's little more than an errand girl, and she just helps the other more experienced trainers with simple tasks like fetching food and cleaning the holding pens. She's impressionable and naive, so she may eventually go pro-military if anyone tries to 'convert' her
