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.

Personality


Perspective Quotes
-Nothing given to you is ever truly yours.
-Honesty is a virtue, and playing nice is a lie.
-In a strange way I thrive on structure. I need a ladder to climb and it makes me feel good when I climb past others.
-I want to be important even if it’s in a terrible way.

Demeanor
Ben was arrogant as a human and that attribute has only been heightened as a vampire. He feels that everyone has potential but they’re simply too lacy and complacent to recognize it. As a human he was very proud of the material things he had, simply because he feels he spent his lifetime earning them. Now he struggles to find his place in the chaos of the vampire culture. He wants a hierarchy to ascend. This is why he identifies with The Supremacy and refuses to take the “handouts” offered by Gayle. As a new vampire, Benjamin has allowed room for one area of chaos - his feeding. He has yet to develop any certain preferences in his taste or habits other than gloating in the “power” he feels afterward by painting himself in his victims’ blood. (He does not do this always, only when he’s being “gluttonous”.) He enjoys “tainting” things that are pristine partially because he feels that is what has happened to himself, so more than likely his victims will become more “innocent”, classy, etc.

Music
I’m not sure if this is a certain genre. Just click here for the playlist.

Ties and Plot


Quick History
Ben was raised by a single mother on an Air Force base in Aurora, Colorado after his father left mysteriously. Not wanting to live in poverty for the rest of his life, he put himself through med school and took a job in Index, WA as an ER physician. His plan was to eventually become a trauma surgeon, but that was wrecked when he was turned by Noelle Benson.

Before Ben was turned, he wasn’t a complete jackass and did enjoy the good he did in the emergency room. Because of this, when he saw the red flashing lights by the river one night, he stopped to find that there had been a car accident and that a woman was in the river. His attempt to save her and he was thought to have died in the process of saving her - except he hadn’t. He’d been turned by Noelle.

Ben does not quite fit in with his vampire “family”, other than wanting to be with Noelle he envies Gayle but also refuses to take her handouts and be “under her thumb”. He works with the Supremacy, something in which he happily finds the structure he’s been seeking.

Relationships
Noelle Benson - Maker
Ben has known Noelle since they were both human. Since he met her, he has found her incredibly attractive and has found her confidence and assertiveness a challenge. As his maker, he resents her “power” over him and takes it out aggressively on her. However, he still sees her as something unreachable, unattainable. He holds both fury and reverence in his heart for her.

Gayle Shaffer - Disliked
Gayle is Noelle’s maker and in that alone he is jealous. He respects that she’s created an empire but refuses to be “handed” things by her because he does not want to be obligated to her. He disagrees with her plans to “out” vampires simply because the chaos it would cause. He thinks she’s simply old, senile and bored and feels like the rest of the world shouldn’t have to pay for that.

Laurel Davis - It’s complicated
As a human Ben found Laurel becoming and attractive because of both her physical appearance and her ambition. However, he’d always wanted to see if if he could find her “wild side”. As with most things, his humanly desires have only been amplified - and darkened. He wants to taint her with his own brand of corruption, and he wants her to enjoy it. He still respects her, at least as much as he can respect any human which isn’t much. But not so much that he won’t keep digging until he finds her dark side.

Ursula Darwin - Superior
Recruited Ben to the supremacy. Too high to be his “direct supervisor” but Ben still sees her from time to time. Ben was creeped out by her at first, but has come to respect her.

Daron Wynyard - TBA

Vincent Byrne - Enemies
Not much interaction between these two.
