Post by JessieWolf » Fri Jan 03, 2014 11:10 pm

Story very loosely based on White Wolf's Vampire world, gonna take a little, leave a little, but for the sake of avoiding trademark or copyright stuff I'll change clan names and such. Just gonna use this thread to keep notes and the like. It's an urban fantasy setting, centering on Nevada, though not starting there. Been in need of something to write...so here I go.

Main Character
Name: Jake Tanner
Sex: Male
Age: 27
Hair: Sandy Blonde
Eyes: Green
Height: 6'3"
Build: Athletic

Hobbies: Jake is a huge adrenaline junky and hates standing still. He even managed to make a job of his passions, teaching martial arts, rock climbing, white water rafting, sky diving and all number of other things. He may not do them all every day, but he has managed to one thing one day and another thing another day. He also enjoys his video games and movies.

Personality: Jake is a very positive, very easy-going and very energetic individual who tends to be very open and honest in the way he deals with people. As a result he makes friends easily and can be easily approached.

History: Jake had a relatively simple life. Born and raised in Pittsburgh by his parents Natalie and Victor Tanner in a rough neighbourhood Jake never seemed to be down. In fact he was one of those people that seemed to be happy no matter what happened to them, good or bad. He was one of those popular kids at school that actually -wasn't- a douchbag and was looked up to by many of his peers. He discovered his affinity for martial arts at a young age when his best friend Raoul(who got picked on and bullied a lot) started taking karate at age 10. Jake asked his parents if he could get into it also so he could keep Raoul company. Jake was a natural, something Raoul was certainly not, and soon Jake was off learning multiple martial arts, while Raoul struggled with one. When they hit high school, Jake earned a bit of a reputation for being an incredibly lucky individual. He worked hard on everything he did but it seemed like when he needed something, it would fall into his lap without effort.

As high school progressed, Jake became the popular jock type with good grades (but not -great- grades) and found himself often coming to his best friend's rescue. Raoul remained a target and too many times to count, He would be about to get his ass kicked and Jake would show up to save the day. Raoul was starting to get bitter about it however, and Jake remained oblivious to the resentment. So when Jake won the heart of Sara Lake, a girl who Raoul had been secretly crushing on, it only fanned the flames of the resentment. Raoul had never actually told Jake how he felt about Sara but the resentment was there none the less. Jake seemed to get everything he ever wanted. So too was true when high school was over and Jake went job hunting and landed his dream job. He got to travel all over the place as a professional trail guide. Getting experience all over the world and developing a reputation that made him highly sought after. One of the best survivalist guides money could buy. However this job kept him away from home. And back in Pittsburgh Sara was starting to get lonely. Jake had suggested she get training and join him, but she was more of a home body. Raoul of course was eager to be her shoulder to cry on while Jake was off in Japan or Africa. Jake had no idea, he wasn't psychic. He couldn't read minds. So as he was finishing up a job in Brazil, he had used some of the money he had earned to buy an engagement ring, he was gonna propose to Sara as soon as he got off the plane...
