welcome
Welcome to Driving Toward Death! We are a supernatural site set in the fictional town of Scylla Bay, Alaska, where the town sees very little sunlight during the winter months and the climate is consistently freezing. Rumor has it supernaturals run the town, but there also lurks a powerful enemy in the darkness.

herald

'Herald,' AKA The Boss, is not someone you want to mess with. Herald is fascinated with ancient Aztec culture, and the idea of blood and blood sacrifices have always interested Herald. As a vampire, of course, that interest doubled. Tripled, even. Herald is sadistic and believes vampires should inherit the Earth because clearly they're the top of the food chain.

However, Herald is not open with their prejudices. In fact, people who meet Herald generally think they're a nice person--and generous, to boot. He's a Charles Manson-esque figure and usually does not ever kill anyone himself. Instead, they sends out their minions. Most of those who meet Herald do not realize they're the Boss, because Herald keeps their status and image a secret from those not in their cabinet. Only the ones within this cluster of ads know who Herald is.

They call themselves Herald because they believe they are heralding in a new age, an age where vampires will no longer be killed for being 'monsters.'

OPEN FC. OPEN HISTORY. CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS 200-300.

watchdog

Watchdog is the consigliere, the right hand person of Herald, and provides them with invaluable advice at seemingly just the right time. It's suspected that Watchdog was once a psychic witch, turned by a vampire sometime in their life, but the power to see into the future never left them. While this is totally just rumor, Watchdog was a former witch and is still abnormally good at predicting where the enemy will be.

They were forcefully turned into a vampire, controlled by their sire for a good portion of their life until Watchdog, in premeditated fury, killed their sire, freeing themselves. But the damage was done. It was Herald who found them a few days later, crying and not knowing what to do with themselves, and with Watchdog, Herald established the group. As such, they have known Herald the longest and is the most loyal to them, hence the given name, Watchdog.

OPEN FC. OPEN HISTORY. CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS 400-500.

plasma

Plasma and Tusk are twins, who come from... questionable backgrounds. Naturally, when Plasma became a vampire, Tusk went out looking for someone to turn them, too.

Plasma is, essentially, the Underboss, the successor to Herald and also the one who commandeers the group as a whole. Plasma tells the capos and the recruits where to go and what to do. They also oversee missions and works with Watchdog to devise plans and tactics.

Although a bit on the younger side, Plasma has worked their way to the top, though some suspect Plasma and Tusk have ties to Herald--illegitimate ties, if you can pick up what I'm putting down. Plasma is exceptionally smart, too, somewhat a young prodigy, but they have constant impostor syndrome, feeling like, despite their hard work, they don't belong with all these other battle-hardened, rough-edged vampires.

Plasma's name originates from the need for blood, AKA plasma, and that without it, there would be no life, no direction.

OPEN FC. OPEN HISTORY (MAY DEPEND ON TUSK'S). CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS DEPENDENT ON HERALD'S.

tusk
reserved until 06/23

Tusk is the twin sibling of Plasma and has always been the more outspoken of the two, constantly getting into fights with neighbor kids (and adults alike).

Per their childhood, Tusk has always had an affinity for weapons and fighting and has bloodied Plasma's nose a few times just because. They have a terrible temper and can always be seen sparring or shooting guns or fencing. They never stop moving and could probably power all of Scylla Bay with how much energy they have. When Tusk isn't angry, though, they're surprisingly mirthful and hyper, chatting up recruits or putting their energy into trying something new.

When it's time to train, though, they're stone cold-serious, no smiles or laughs allowed. Anyone who cuts up under Tusk's supervision will be thrown out, no second chances.

Tusk's name stems from both from the fact that they have no qualms in absolutely goring an enemy to the point of no recognition and also from the fact that, when extended, one fang is longer than the other by a good inch or so. Plasma lovingly calls them Snaggletooth, but only when Tusk is in a good mood, of course.

eyes

Eyes trains specialist recruits in stealth and subterfuge, and the recruits under Eyes' care are the best of the best, meaning they have naturally nimble fingers and a silent presence.

Eyes themselves learned to be stealthy when they grew up in a very abusive home, forced to keep to the shadows and be as quiet as possible in order to not upset their parents. As the oldest sibling in Eyes' home of six children (including themselves), they also learned how to protect and teach their siblings in the same manner, so, of the three specialists, Eyes is the most caring and nurturing. But also the one you will regret the most upon betraying. A fun fact about Eyes is that they have a keen love for the stars and is very particular about what stars are in the sky dictating what times to strike.

They observe everything, see every tiny detail and remember it, almost supernaturally, as if they have eyes on the back of their head. Thus earning them the name, Eyes. Also, many people only see Eyes as a pair of... eyes.

OPEN FC. OPEN HISTORY. CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS 100-200.

bloodhound

Bloodhound, besides Herald, is probably the person that people know about the least. They always keep to themselves and never make any waves outside of the group. Their recruits are very much the same way, quiet and very secretive, which leads some people to believe there is a degree of brainwashing with Bloodhound's recruits.

But the truth is, Bloodhound just handpicks the ones that are already reserved, the ones that like to work behind the scenes. Those that come to them as boisterous or proud, Bloodhound turns away, no matter their other credentials. It takes a degree of levelness to become a recruit in investigation.

Bloodhound themselves suffers from retrograde amnesia. After being jumped in their hometown, concussed with baseball bats and left to die, their sire found them bleeding out and turned them. When Bloodhound awoke, though, they could remember nothing about who they were. Their wallet was taken by the ones who jumped him, so he had no form of I.D. Since then, Bloodhound has been making a new name and life for themselves by investigating others'.

OPEN FC. OPEN HISTORY. CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS 50-150.

tempest
reserved until 6/24

Tempest, formerly Maelstrom, is undeniably beautiful, to all genders, and uses their beauty and silver tongue to draw people into the group. They are also the only one in Herald's cabinet to NOT be a vampire. Tempest is a merfolk, who also uses their song to lure people.

As a person, Tempest lived a fairly normal life with an older brother and two loving parents, a perfectly nuclear family. In fact, Tempest went to Yale University to study marketing and was a marketer for huge products, but, as merfolk do, they became bored and wanted something a little more off-beat. Her close friends had always been vampires, for some reason or another, so they're a huge advocate for them. Tempest, in personality, is... elusive. They're flighty, always trading one thrill for another, one conversation for someone else's. Tempest is no stranger to dark waters, either, and has taken it upon themselves to make sure some of the group's enemies literally "sleep with da fishes."

Their name, Tempest, comes from their flighty nature and their ability to "tame the storm," as it were--the "storm" being new recruits, of course.

OPEN FC. MERFOLK. OPEN HISTORY (MUST BE AMERICAN). CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS 40-200.

abend

Abend is your friendly neighborhood computer geek. They can program dope websites but can also out-hack the FBI. If they wanted to.

They usually work with Jive and Bloodhound to cover up evidence of their identities and also find others'. But when they're not on the job, Abend is tooth-achingly sweet, to the point of eyelash-batting demureness, and is considered the "baby" of the operation despite being older than a few of the others. Don't mistake their kindness for naivete, though, because Abend is a World War I veteran and has seen the true horror of humankind. They've seen best friends and family die, but Abend has an iron resolve and likes to think that those who have passed would not want them to be jaded about the world.

Their name is derived from AbEnd (abnormal end), which in computer geek language, means an abnormal termination of software, and Abend will terminate your software. Or your hardware if you cross them.

OPEN FC. FORMER WITCH TURNED VAMPIRE. OPEN HISTORY. CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS 150-200.

jive

And last but certainly not least, we have Jive, who has arguably the most important job in the entire cabinet--making sure no one finds out who they are and what they do/have done.

Jive used to be a forensic analyst/crime scene investigator for the NYPD, so they've seen it all, really. People can die in a lot of ways but crime can be covered in far less. But if there's anyone who knows how to get away with it, it's Jive. Now, Jive themselves doesn't particularly care for murder or torture, but they can agree that sometimes it's necessary. They work closely with Abend and Bloodhound and is the reluctant leader of their little trio.

As a person, Jive is the "grandpa friend" of the group, complaining that they're too old for this shit, that they should be in Las Vegas throwing singles at strippers. Instead they're in Podunk, Alaska, helping deluded vampires.

Their name, Jive, stems from the fact that they could "dance on the police's heads and they'd never suspect them of it." OPEN FC. OPEN HISTORY. CAN BE MALE, FEMALE, OR NON-BINARY. AGE RANGE IS 150-300.

assassins

Assassins are the top of the top, entrusted with the most important missions: getting rid of threats. Most do so alone, though sometimes assassins will go on a mission in pairs. They are given special clearance by Eyes themselves, and have also most likely been in the mafia the longest compared to other specialists.

CAN ONLY BE VAMPIRES.

interrogators

Interrogators work with Bloodhound and use some... less than savory methods to make their "respondents" talk, though most of those who witness the inside of the mafia headquarters that aren't mafia usually don't make it back out. Interrogators are trained to be extremely secretive and tight-lipped and will only speak in code around other interrogators and Bloodhound.

CAN ONLY BE VAMPIRES.

harbingers

Harbingers are elite soldiers--the best of the best. They've been hand-picked and hardened by Tusk, and only a select few become harbingers. They lead the raiders in raids against hunters and other threats and are extremely knowledgeable in firearms and other weaponry, as well as tactics and warfare. Many of them come from military backgrounds, so they've been trained once before.

CAN ONLY BE VAMPIRES.

spies

Spies are the rung right below assassins and are also some of the most trusted amongst the mafia family. They have been trained by both Bloodhound and Eyes and have a keen sense of loyalty and duty. Essentially, spies are able to infiltrate the enemies' hideouts and gather information to report back, but they also keep a close eye on people within the mafia, too. So always be on your best behavior.

trackers

Trackers are exactly what they say on the tin. They work with Abend, Jive, and Bloodhound to find their targets and then lock on like a dog with a bone. Their sole purpose in the mafia is to make sure they never lose their targets, to always have them in their sights. As such, trackers have a natural talent usually in computer hacking or charisma (getting people to talk) or a keen eye for detail.

raiders

Raiders are where most of the recruits will land. They are the fighters, the front lines, the people who are the first ones to bust through the doors. How they fight, what weapons they use, etc. is totally up to each individual raider, but rest assured that Tusk will make them ready for whatever opponent they face.

spotters

Spotters are a unique breed of specialist in that they may seem kind of useless at first until they're not. Trained exclusively by Eyes, spotters' jobs are essentially scouting and getting back to their superior. An untrained spotter can cost a whole mission; likewise, a great spotter can get the jump on an otherwise poorly planned mission. Spotters need to have sharp senses and an unwavering ability to focus intensely.

informants

Informants are special in that they are a mixed breed of "volunteers" and actual recruits. Informants do not necessarily have to be part of the mafia, but they must swear fealty to them. What they do, essentially, is get information out of other people, but they differ from interrogators in that they don't use force or torture. Usually informants play the part of a double agent, digging up dirt on someone they may work with, for example.

retainers

Retainers are somewhat similar to raiders in that they are front lines sort of people. However, instead of being on the offensive, retainers are the defense, trained by Tusk to know every inch of the mafia headquarters and to know who and what is out of place. They also serve as bodyguards to several of the cabinet members (though only a select elite few are chosen), and their first priorities are to always, always protect the cabinet above all else.

Hi,

I'm not sure if it is taken already, but if not - I would like to reserve the Eyes if it is possible?
