In the 1950's, United States naval vessels rushed to a relatively unknown island in the northern Atlantic, well within the arctic circle. Soviet Union vessels soon followed, but when they arrived, for one of the first times in the Cold War, the sides both decided to blockade the island. Soon, researchers and reporters investigating the island began to mysteriously say that there was no cause for alarm relating to it, and it was for routine training. 

Soon, the island began to disappear from cultural memory, possibly to never be heard of again. 

However, in the year 2024, a Swedish fishing boat's lone occupant swore to have seen a massive sea monster rise through the thick mist around the island. She was generally discredited publicly, but major world governments soon grew uneasy. 

On February 8th 2024, a party flew by way of helicopter to the island and were only told to investigate, quote, "unusual wildlife activity pertaining to crustaceans, molluscs, arachnids, avians, and potentially mammals" It was top secret, and some members of the expedition fear it to be some type of clandestine espionage mission. But if you've guessed by now that something very strange was happening on the island, you would be right. 

The party of helicopters landed in the centre of the island and set up a base. And then the story began...

Alright so I'm a bit confused. However I think I said that the reservations expire tonight unless you asked for more time, and I would prefer if I could get the first drafts of all the characters and edit them. Feel free to post a simpler charrie and add onto it later. Im adding a second police detextive which is reserved by ashlee as well. I think the villains and the tech manager are the only ones not offically reserved. I am hoping to see several characters today and start soon. Also remember heli 5 and 6 are coming soon.

@Ella Wait who are you talking to? Do I get to keep my charrie? I really like her. 

Gosh, I'm confused.

I think you said that if somebody else was using it you would be fine if we ignored your character so I was basing it on that? If you want I will add her in but I would prefer to not have to make 2 of characters for one prompt more than occasionally. The startup owner, I believe, hasn't been reserved or had any interested so far. Thats Heli 4 P 1. I'm sorry about the confusion.

Here's my General, late but present! Most likely Ive forgotten some aspect of him, but if I remember anything Ill let you know :)

Name: Joseph Paul Walton

Age: 40

What slot filling: High ranking general

Gender or pronouns: Male

Appearance: Joseph has mocha colored very short hair in the classic side part. Has some stubble. He's has misty blue eyes. Rough dark tan skin (He's american). From an unfortunate turn of events, he has multiple scars across the left side of his face along with his ear being partly torn up. He has trouble hearing from that ear. However that doesnt make him any less human, although it does intimidate most people. 

Joseph's got a tall and agile build, and incredibly fit, although not grossly ripped (lol). When he's not in uniform he wears casual clothes such as excersize stuff. Shorts, short sleaved shirts, etc. 

Personality: Over all, Joseph is a solid guy. He's compassionate and kind but leads with a strong hand. He's social and very easy to talk to. Most are surprised by his kind and loose personality because his appearance can be intimidating. He has a great sence of humor and not very touchy. A quick thinker, pretty wise, great under pressure. He has great leadership qualities and alot of people respect him. Also he loves children. 

Personal posessions brought: Clothes, survival equiptment, {Are weapons allowed? If so he's bringing a pistol} and a picture of his family. 

Fears, especially of animals: Everytime he goes on some assignment hes uneasy on leaving his family. He's pretty ok with animals, however he hates marine animals. Sharks, squids, even sea lions creep him out, so this mission will be interesting. 

Other: He was adopted in his teens to a very large family, so has a soft spot for children. He's married to Alice, who's a (Ironicly) marine bioligst and together they have six kids, four adopted from Guatemala. 

Question, what military branch can he be from? Im imagining the Army...

Kay, Im done! Hopefully it wasnt too long. Im really excited for this to start! Also sorry if there are alot of spelling mistakes, Im on the phone and I really cant type on this thing XD

Alright, that sounds good. To answer your question, as he is part of the military, he will have weapons, but I think that they will just be the standard issue, and he won't really get a choice, but neither will the other characters.
