setting
Index was once a small and close-knit community, but the town located on the western side of Washington state has grown in recent years beyond anyone's expectations. It is the ideal place for those who work in Seattle but can't afford the city's high real estate prices, and for others the natural beauty attracts them to the town. And Index truly is a beautiful place - surrounded by thick evergreen trees, tall mountains and glistening rivers and lakes. While weather is typically rainy with overcast skies even this does nothing to take away from the beauty of the town, and it is only highlighted further when the heavy snow graces the town and caps the mountains in winter. To many, Index would seem like a paradise. And yet lurking beneath this visual beauty there is more to this town than anyone might ever imagine...

Current Time in Index, Washington:
rules
PLAYBYS: Sims from the games Sims 2, 3 and 4 are used to visually represent player’s original characters (no characters from within the franchise are allowed). But, you do not need these games to join and roleplay! If you wish, you can post a thread in our out of character / general forum and list as many physical details about your character as you wish. The members of Index will happily try and make a character for you, and you can choose which one you feel best fits your vision.

AVATARS: Avatars should display your characters face clearly and should be at least 200 pixels tall, and 200 pixels wide.

THREADING & POSTING: When threading with multiple characters, it is important that you post only when it is your turn. This can be acheived by taking note of who has posted before you, and remember you are to always post after them. If you were the thread starter, then it is your turn after the final person has joined your thread.

When creating a thread you are required to place a tag before the title. Here are a list of types of thread you can create and how to tag each one:

[Open] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, with no limit on the number of characters.
[Open - #] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, but there is a limit on the number of characters who can join. Replace the # with how many extra characters you will allow to join your thread.
[Private] Only specific characters can join your thread.
[Closed] This tag should be used for threads that only involve your character.

ACTIVITY: To keep threads moving, people are encouraged to post within three days when it is their turn. If you do not post within three days, and you have not asked people to wait for you, it is possible you will be skipped. Keep in mind this is just a suggestion. While we'd love for everyone to be active every day, we understand that real life and other hobbies are just as important, if not more. We want you to be active because you want to be, not because a rule is telling you to be.

MATURITY RATING: Public threads should all be PG. If roleplayers above the age of 18 wish to post content that could be could be considered graphic then it should be hidden from view using the [hide] [/hide] code, which will enable only those in the threads and administrators to view the content.

I smiled at Monica, a small, tired smile. Quote Begin Inspiring.. and also important to bring the culprit to justice. Whoever killed that man's still out there. We don't even know the victim to be able to tell any family they might have. Quote End The case reeked of depth to me. It wasn't an open and closed crime of passion. The execution, the circumstances, the very lack of evidence made me sure the killer had been contracted. It meant there wasn't just the primary killer still out there, but whoever had ordered the hit too.

I shook my head, absolutely certain. I knew the file inside out. Quote Begin No.. nothing about that at all. I should have known that the absence of Mathis' records meant something... I just didn't think they might be relevant.Quote End I let out a small sigh. It wasn't the time to start laying blame or pointing fingers though, not when there was something much more important to be done. Quote Begin It doesn't matter how they got left out right now. But I know a few people, someone should be able to help.Quote End Index was my third police department, including one in New York where I'd spent the majority of my time in service, and you got to know people in a state with a high crime rate as there. I'd worked with the FBI a few times too, even if they usually ended up taking over a case if they got involved.

I checked my watch. Considering the time, and the time differences, waiting a few hours wouldn't hurt. Quote Begin Even if it gives us nothing to go on, we can get Mathis back in here. I'll charge him with withholding evidence seeing as he was at the crime scene after the crime, but before we were alerted, if I have to. I just hope that any digging into the witness protection does bring up something to use against him. Anything to get him talking. I just can't shake the feeling he's hiding something from us, especially after this witness protection involvement.Quote End

Isn't it strange how life humbles you? Twists everything you think you know, including what you think you know about yourself? I'm still so new to this, and I've never actually caught a murder suspect before, but I can tell that I want them to have due process under the law, I want them to have their rights. Will I feel that way when I find Desi's killer? Some days I think I have it in me to be that just person, to be accountable and to have actual strong values that stand up no matter what the case. Some days, when I can't stand that I've had to become an adult without her, it's just not there.

But on that note, I had a feeling that our victim had nothing resembling a clean slate. What minuscule evidence we had seemed to point that way, but I knew I could find it easy still to fight for him. I had gotten this idea that even if he was a shady guy, he was robbed of the chance to turn things around by his killer.

There's never been much crime here. I grew up in this town and it's kind of baffling to me. But you're absolutely right. No one's getting away with this.

I knew my intention tonight was to dig for my own purposes, but stumbling upon a new potential lead had me motivated. I wasn't selfish enough to steal time from a current case if I had something to offer to it to work on my own project. I easily brushed off my own pang of guilt for not following through, tacking it in my memory as a learning experience. That's great, that's seriously great. I wish it wasn't so late, I'm feeling so motivated and it being near midnight doesn't help things, does it?

I took a sip of my coffee, though the excitement of the possibility of a new break was more than enough to keep my eyes open. I think once he realizes we know, maybe he'll talk more. Or even without him talking... we'll get leads on where he's from, his story. I can't imagine our vic not being connected to whatever happened before. Somebody's gonna talk.

I let out a small laugh, not sure what to say to Mon's claims that there was never much crime in Index. I wondered how much wolves, vampires.. even mages or mediums had covered up over the years for their own benefit. Quote Begin Unfortunately it's like we can't get away from crime.. no matter how small a place, something always happens...Quote End It didn't stop the pang of guilt I felt for withholding the truth. I didn't see failing to reveal the truth to humans as a lie - it was information they didn't want, or need, to know. That didn't make it any easier. I could remember cases that I'd found odd in the past, things that didn't make sense then, but did with my new knowledge. At least with myself as a detective I could still try and ensure justice was carried out properly. It might have only been me, but one person who could notice things that others couldn't was better than none. Quote Begin I don't know how he's connected, but the possibility that he is, is too large not to look into it. And there's something about Mathis.. when I was interviewing him before, just a feeling, but I'm sure he's been up to something. Maybe it is just that he's in the protection program. I don't know.. it's like trying to see the picture a puzzle makes without the box and only a handful of pieces.Quote End

I checked my wristwatch again. Quote Begin I'd call them now, but I don't want to annoy anyone before asking a favor. At least we can use the time we have.. are you planning on staying, or were you going home? If this that was missed out of the report then there could be other things too.. I think it's time I looked it over from beginning to end and double checked everything. I can't see a better way to spend time until I can get more info. Two pairs of hands are better than one..Quote End I looked at Monica, knowing how late it was, Quote Begin But I can understand if you want to get home... Quote End

Maybe I just noticed it more now, I was apathetic as a teen, unless it was relevant to me. But it seemed like now that I was here, it really seemed like it was being shoved in my face that this was no sleepy town by the mountains. Vandalism, theft, drugs, and this murder - I was seeing the place from a completely different angle and to be honest I really wasn’t ready for it. What else I expected I really didn’t know. You’re not kidding, I said in agreeance, but not liking the fact. I took another drink of coffee and placed the mug back onto the table. I think you’re right, it absolutely kills me that we couldn’t get any leads before he was released. He was so damn careful.

I stood up, shoved the chair underneath the table, and grabbed my coffee. No, that can wait for tomorrow, but I don’t mind to stay, that’s what I came here for, anyway. A quiet comb-through, no interruptions, no phone calls. Some time when I can really focus on the small information I have. Okay, so that wasn’t completely true, I was here to see what information they had on Desi, but I could shuffle my priorities around for the night. I headed to my office and woke up my PC, logging in and pulling up the report that had sparked Brian’s revelation. I stepped outside the door and flagged Detective Khan’s attention.

See, here? You might have a different take on this than Brian, if you want to come take a look. It just says, further information available upon request. I pulled the chair in front of my desk around and took a seat in my chair next to it. But see, it’s purposefully elusive as to just where you make that request. Then again, I’m rather new. That’s why I’d wrongfully hoped that Brian was looking into that.

I held my coffee mug between my hands, brow furrowed and lost in thought until Monica flagged me down. I shook myself out of my concentration and smiled at her, hastily following when I realised it was something important.

Quote Begin No, it's not your fault. Or Brian's, necessarily.. things get overlooked. It's why I'm trying to implement a system where cases are checked. And I can see why no-one else noticed this...Quote End I frowned at the tiny text on the screen hinting at Shane being involved in something higher up. There were often mistakes in the station, enough for me to be incredibly annoyed at and spend most of my time straightening things out. However, I also realised that my time was better spent doing my job than griping about others not doing theirs. Quote Begin At least we know about it now and have somewhere to go from here. Thanks, Cervantes.Quote End I smiled, using her last name in humour of the way other officers seemed to be commended. Quote Begin Now we've got this and whatever else we might find going through the files with a fine-toothed comb, maybe this case won't be so cold after all.Quote End
