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.

COMBAT
Peaceful or Aggressive Attitude? Peaceful, but feels uneasy unless he has a weapon nearby.
Fighting Skills/Techniques: Unarmed self-defense, pistol and rifle training.
Special Skills/Magical Powers/etc:
Spirit Walk (Ability Rank: 1)
Andy can psychically/spiritually step outside of his body, manifesting as his human form or his wolf form. Like a ghost, he can move through physical objects unless warded by magic. His senses are generally unaffected by the transition into the spirit world, he can "smell" or "taste" and even “touch” physical objects to get a sense of how they might feel if he were physically able to touch or hold them. He cannot easily affect anything in the physical world though he can run across water or fall as slowly as a feather with concentration. Andy always has a sense of his body’s position and condition while spirit walking, but his body lays dormant, sleeping restfully. In practice, Andy tends to use his gift almost every night while his body sleeps.
Body Hijacking (Ability Rank: 2)
Andy can spirit walk into a subject’s body and take control of their actions, by force, if necessary. Unless the subject is a willing participant, this domination only lasts ten seconds on humans and only five seconds on supernatural beings. Dominated humans do not remember anything of what happened during this time, but supers are usually well aware of the domination even as its happening. Andy has access to whatever physical traits the subject possesses but not their mental abilities or memories, though Andy can communicate with the suppressed spirit if the spirit wasn't forcibly dominated. Each time Andy forcibly hijacks a subject, the duration of the power is reduced by about half as the subject learns to resist Andy’s control. This resistance seems to fade away after a day or two. 
Andy has learned that he must be very careful when hijacking, especially if he must jump from one host to another quickly. Several times he has accidentally shuffled the spirits of two host bodies, resulting in the two hosts trading spirits for about 24 hours. Andy’s own spirit gets violently snapped back into his own body, leaving him dizzy and with a terrible headache. After these events, Andy takes on some personality traits of the two hosts for the duration of the swap.
Materialization (Ability Rank: 3)
Andy is just beginning to learn how to physically manifest his ghost wolf form into the real world for brief moments, flashing into and out of reality. The easiest use of this power is to simply become visible to anyone, appearing as a ghostly wolf. Physically interacting with things is much harder to accomplish, and Andy simply doesn't have enough experience to do this reliably.
Weapon of Choice (if any): Adept at using knives, hunting rifles, and military rifles
Weaknesses in Combat: Andy is a skilled combatant in his human form, but prefers to accompany pack hunting parties in spirit form, acting as a scout. As such, his wolf form isn't very fearsome, though his pack mates back home quickly learned to appreciate his gifts and the role he plays. This also means that Andy has very little practice with partial transformation and so he avoids doing so unless necessary.
Strengths in Combat: Andy has military training that makes him a formidable opponent to most humans, but Andy is best served by his skills with a rifle when he might be forced to face a vampire. Most rival wolves would easily defeat him in one-on-one combat.
FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND FOES
Parents Names and Status: Joseph Carter, age 46. Amanda Carter, age 43.
Relationship with Parents? Good, father is in construction, taught him how to drive construction vehicles. Mother is a stay at home mom and part-time accountant, working through tax season.
Siblings? Relationship with Siblings? Sister, Ashley Carter, age 17.
Other Important Relatives: Grandmother
Partner/Spouse: None
Children: None
Best Friend: Corporal Samuel Alvarez, they served together in Afghanistan for three years.
Other Important Friends: George Leroux, tribal councilman. Served as a kind of surrogate grandfather. He promised to look after the Carters after Andy's grandfather, Jack Carter -- George's best friend, was killed in 2006.
Acquaintances: David Nichols, Afghanistan Operations Manager for TigerSwan, a global security company
Enemies? Cause of Conflict?
The Garrett family had always been considered the "black sheep" of the local pack in the Six Rivers region of California, but they were furious when Jack Carter and the rest of the pack elders decided to sever all ties with the California Pack and join the Pacific Pack following the Incident at Six Rivers in February 1992. This conflict reached its climax when Bill Garrett started an altercation at The Pronghorn bar in 2006 with Jack Carter and killed Jack with a shotgun blast to the back of the head.
