The Devil's Advocate

Post by Guest on Sat May 05, 2012 6:40 pm

Over the years as hominids have evolved, mutations have occurred deep within the cells of certain individuals. Some call them gifted, others call them freaks that should be locked away for ever, some call them scientific anomalies that should be tested and studied more in depth. Whatever the reason, it doesn't matter. All that matters is that now, they're a way to make money.



Bounty hunters of their own kind have now come together and are making a living off of catching, trading, or even extinguishing these people. These are their stories.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


You can be a bounty hunter or a mutant getting caught, or even just someone that ends up getting caught up in it somehow. I don't require skeletons, but you are more than welcome to put it up if you want. I do ask that if you don't do that, that you sort of give a description of your character in your introduction, and then sort of build from there. Alright? Rules are just the basic ones..no powerplaying and no mary janes! Other than that, just have fun.

(I'll probably bring in a second character, a bounty hunter, but I'll just start out with one for now)

Celene walked the streets with her head down, her brow curls hiddening her dirt covered face as she searched for food. After several days of foraging in the woods and countryside she had no choice but to resort to this tricky venture- stealing.
If she was caught, she was dead. Literally.
Good thing she was good at running, not that she exactly had a choice.

Lyle searched the street with keen eyes, his heart beat seeming to be the only sound in the lone alleyway. His dark trench coat hid the weapons that were strapped to his person while his long hair was wet and curled from the earlier rain. He saw movement out of the corner of his eye, but waited to see if perhaps it was something worth following or not.

Celene weaved through the crowd, careful not to draw attention to herself as she followed her nose to a food stand. Perfect, now she just needed her distraction.
Her stomach rumbled and she knealt down to retie her tied shoes, taking the moment to look around for something to help her.

Lyle watched the thing from the corner of his eye as it seemed to shift in the shadows. Quicker than anyone could see, making his arm look as though it had actually gotten longer, he pulled out his gun and fired, killing the thing in the shadows. He walked over and kicked it, seeing the face of a girl half shifted into what looked like a cat. His lifeless eyes flickered from it to the rest of the alley as he put the gun away. "I GOT IT JEEVES! BETTER GET MY PAYMENT!" he shouted to the empty darkness. But it wasn't empty. He knew they were watching. He walked towards the crowds a few streets down, his hands in his pockets and his eyes low to the ground.

Finally she found what she was looking for- a barrel of apples a few feet away from the stand. Her stomach growled again and she stood, taking the moment to prepare herself before starting toward. With a well intended nudge, it flew over and sent all the apples flying, leaving the cart owner to fumble out to gather them in dispare. Celene slyly stood out of the way, then ducked behind the cart, filling her pockets.

Lyle continued down the streets, ignoring the mess of a man with his cart. He didn't even take notice of the thief. He had business elsewhere. His eyes stayed low, his feet taking him to a small shop on the other side of the market.

Celene couldnt help a small grin as she stood with bulging pockets and inserted herself back into the flow of people. Phase one complete, now she just had to get home safely /without/ using her powers.
... That was always were these little missions failed.

Lyle disappeared into the tiny corner shop, only to emerge ten minutes later with a wad of cash in his pocket and a dark grin on his face. He could almost say he loved his job at times like these. He headed down the street, glancing at a girl in front of him with bugling pockets. His eyes narrowed slightly, curiosity building in him. Of course, he would most likely not kill her if she was one, just stick her in a holding cell. No one wanted her dead...yet.

Celene's skin pricked, encouraging her to pick up her pace. Something was off... In instances like this, she had learned never to doubt her initial instincts, and her initial insticts were screaming run.
"..."
She glanced around wearily, ducking into a heavily crowded street in an attempt to disappear amoung the many heads.

Lyle continued to follow her, though he stayed back a few paces. His keen eyes never left her form. Such a sick irony, his job. Killing those he was most like.

Celene continued to walk till she was sure she had shaken off the followers. After all, she had been sure to remain as inconspicuous as possible in this town, no one could suspect... It must of been a hungry kid.
She ducked into an alley, now lost from all that walking. Guess shed have to use her powers to get back. Dammit, she'd make it cold turkey one of these days...

I'll stick my first post in 3rd person for sake of convenience, but will probably switch to first later......


Trace took a long drag off the cigarette, sharp green eyes watching as the end flared red, illuminating her face and a small fraction of the alley she stood in, giving her fair skin a reddish glow for a brief moment before the burning embers darkened once more, the light fading away. She brought the cigarette away from her mouth and exhaled a long stream of smoke, brushing her shaggy dark bangs out of her eyes. Threats were everywhere, and she needed to be able to see them coming. Her contact should be here soon, but there was always the chance of ambush. Her dad may have been a good for nothing most days and a downright dick when he was drunk, but he was also fantastically paranoid about government conspiracies and the like, and he'd taught her how to survive on the run. And when it really came down to it and she DID have to run..... well, she could almost start to forgive her dad for some of the crap he'd put her through. Almost. Choosing a city to hide in might not have been the best choice, but one normal-looking person in a sea of normal looking people was a helluva lot less conspicuous then one desperate half-starved smelly dirt-covered girl running around in the countryside. As long as she kept her head down, blended in, and didnt leave any kind of a trail that could be followed, she figured she'd get by. Her current apartment was small and secluded, with plenty of escape routes, and she'd rigged it well. She planned constantly, and had stashes of supplies around, most of them being her dad's old stashes. Survival on the run..... just another day in the life.


Hunter was on the move. Ironic....... his name had become his profession. It was a hard job, but it made money and he loved it. He'd never been able to stay in one place for long anyways, and hunting freaks kept him moving. Just how he liked it........ he moved through the crowd easily, about a head taller than most of the people around him. Hunter was many things, but short was not one of them. He ran a hand through his shaggy dark auburn hair absently, blue eyes scanning the area. He'd tracked his target here, but the trail had suddenly run cold...... not good. This one was worth a bundle, and he needed the money. But he knew the one he was looking for was here, and this wasnt a big town. Watch and wait and sooner or later his target would appear.

Lyle hid around the corner of the alleyway, his eyes on the girl who seemed wary. He wouldn't blame her. He had to hide from his own profession as well, though he had possibly a better sporting chance than most. But when it came to these things, no one with powers was safe, no matter the profession.
