BAD MOON RISING
Rift world: Obsidian
Genre: Neo-Feudal Cyberpunk​

The Government has fallen and the world’s first mega-city is commanded by the world’s first megacorporation, Kokuyōseki 黒曜石 Obsidian, using the neurolink network, an implantable brain–machine. A city with no countries, no religion, no language barriers. A city of peace and equality for all. Poverty and crime are eradicated. Advanced Technology and automation have taken over 69% of the workforce, liberating humanity to the arts and entertainment.​

But not all that glitters is gold. This society isn't as perfect as it seems on the surface. Food, water, clothing, shelter are all guaranteed under the Network, but a social credit system has been established to determine who gets more or less. Those who decline the brain implant are called Mujin 無人 Nobodies, are denied basic human rights and forced to live underground, oppressed and unseen, living off of the trash discarded from above. The Yakuza ヤクザ have become agents that enforce vague laws and protect the interest of the corporation, acting as judge, jury, and executioner.​

Citizens who obey the law, pay their dues, give their sons to the Yakuza, and are rewarded socially for applauding when outliers are disposed of, do not live tormented in the totalitarian state — they even consider themselves happy, comfortable, and safe. They live in total fear and hatred of the lower-class Mojin. But an unlikely group has risen up to defy the status quo and the corporate masters’ fascist grip on the populace. The Kaizoku 海賊 Pirates of the Hannya-kai Syndicate.​


Hey y’all! I’m working on a new story arc in Nexus and I’m open to 5 players (max) interested in joining. Embark on a quest to topple a totalitarian empire, attacking it at its heart–the neurolink network–and the quantum consciousness of the connected collective that powers and feeds it. Be it Citizen, Yakuza, Mojin, Kaizoku, or Rift Refugee, the possibilities are endless. The benefactor of this secret plot, is the head boss of the Hannya-kai Syndicate. How did you hear about the job, which could only be trusted to a select few? What motley crew could be brought together, United by a single cause? Is it money? Power? Fame? Revenge? Boredom? A warm fuzzy feel-goodness? I’ll be running the plot as GM, and will be working the plot around the characters. Please consider the synopsis before submitting! If you have any questions for me, please don’t hesitate to ask! xo

History
Birth country:
United States of America
Hometown: Los Angeles, California
Childhood: Waverly was born into a Military and Law Enforcement Family as the eldest of five, having two younger brothers and two younger sisters, being the odd one out as her two brothers and two sisters are both identical twins. On her Father's side is a long line of Soldiers, while her Mother's side has a long line of Police Officers. While her Father was often away overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan, her Mother was working night shifts as a Patrol Officer, so raising a family was difficult for the Princeton Family. With both parents often being away from home at any given time, the Princeton siblings were looked after by their Grandmother. Waverly was the most well-behaved and often had to help her elderly grandmother keep her siblings in line. She excelled in her Academics and often helped her siblings with their homework growing up. In addition to excelling in Academics, Waverly was also a part of the Girls' Basketball Team and on weekends took part in boxing.

Being a very active and energetic athlete growing up, Waverly began to expand her horizon in sports. Since one school sport as already enough to manage. With support from her Grandparents, Waverly started Karate in seventh grade after finding her Grandpa's old Black Belt in the attic while helping him with Spring Cleaning, prompting him to tell her his story as Karate Practitioner. Inspired by this, Waverly would sign up for Karate in the early Spring, where she quickly made her way to being a star pupil as she was a very attentive student and a fast learner.

Teen years: As soon as she started High School, her Father was honorably discharged from the Army and went to open a bar to keep a more stable income and so that he can spend more time with his children, proud of how much Waverly has grown up and how far she has come in life. Even more so, her Father was very happy when he got to see her start up Muay Thai (or Thai Kickboxing) after Basketball Season in Freshman Year. Once Sophomore Year rolled around Waverly had been practicing Karate for three years and was on track to earning her Black Belt, having reached Brown Belt by the Summer before the School Year.

Her Mother retired as well after the end of her Sophomore Year, hoping to spend more time with her family and go to Waverly's Basketball games and taking her to her Martial Arts Lessons on the Weekends. Unfortunately, life took a turn for the worst as her Grandfather was diagnosed with throat cancer and he would pass away a few weeks before his Granddaughter's Black Belt Ceremony. This would strike a severe blow to the young Princeton and she would slowly sink into depression not long after earning her Black Belt. From her performance in Basketball and Academics taking a dip in the beginning of her Junior Year of High School as she was heartbroken over not getting to see her Grandfather's smile after earning her Black Belt like he had before her. In hopes of helping her cope with her grief, Waverly's Grandmother had her join her Brother, Uncle and Two Cousins in Judo, which he had started after taking up High School Wrestling. At first, Waverly had some trouble adjusting as Judo focused more on throws and grappling and the previous Martial Arts that she had studied were oriented towards striking. Thankfully, after about the first three weeks, Waverly had settled in fairly well and started picking up on the techniques fairly quickly like she had done in the past, surprising even her Judo Instructor after she took down her Cousin during Randori (Free Practice). As Junior Year progressed, Waverly's performance in both her Academics and Basketball, where she was top of her class and led her team to the State Championship, where they defeated Crenshaw High School.

During the Summer before her Senior Year, Waverly wanted to spend more time with her youngest sister, Luna, as they have had trouble with the sisterly bonding due to their ten-year age gap. Much like Waverly herself, Luna picked up Martial Arts at the age of five, but went down a different path with Taekwondo, having followed their Cousins into the class and one day decided that she wanted enroll. However, due to her age, Waverly was unable to be in the same class as Luna. To overcome this, she would enroll into the Senior Class that took place immediately after, as there were more people in her age group if not students who were slightly older. Even if they were unable to learn the Martial Art together, Waverly was able to overcome this by doing weekly recaps with Luna so that she can perform better in her own class, as she wasn't a fast learner like Waverly herself was. Once Senior Year kicked off, Waverly's schedule became busier as she continued Running Start, taking College Classes at Los Angeles Community College, leaving her with little time to spend with her loved ones altogether, as she had less free time due to her commitments to Martial Arts and Basketball. In particular, she put a lot of focus into Judo as her Black Belt promotion was right around the corner. Prior to her next Black Belt promotion though, Waverly's next big challenge was the final Basketball Season of her High School Career. And with the College Athlete Scouts out to watch, she had to put on the best performance as possible if she and her fellow Seniors were going to be considered for Athletic Scholarships. Giving it her all, both on the court and as team captain. Despite some tough games, Waverly led her team through an undefeated season and winning the State Championship thereafter. After the season's end, Waverly was immediately offered a full-ride Basketball Scholarship to the University of Washington in Seattle. Following her final Basketball Season, Waverly went into the Spring, finally able to devote more time into Martial Arts, including preparation for her Black Belt ceremony in Judo and her upcoming promotion to Second Degree Black Belt in Karate. Her High School Career ended on a high note, as she graduated as the Valedictorian for her Class and an Associate's Degree from Community College. For the first time in years, Waverly was finally free...at least until it was time to pack up and move to Seattle, where her Father helped her get an Apartment close to the school.

Adult years: Near the beginning of her Sophomore Year in College, Waverly added another Martial Art to her already extensive arsenal; Brazilian Jujitsu. Having been a Black Belt in Judo for a few years now, Waverly had an edge over some of the students when it came to the grappling, throwing and submissions, but was at a disadvantage when it came to the ground-fighting, which she quickly overcame thanks to being a seasoned athlete and martial artist. Although she was a fast learner, the promotion time between belts was much longer compared to other Martial Arts. While she wasn't happy with it at first, Waverly learned to be patient as her promotion will come when it is time, but was nonetheless eager to learn and progress in her latest Martial Arts endeavor.

After four long years, Waverly would graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice, after which she would follow in her Mother's Footsteps as a Police Officer, starting at Police Academy in the Summer following her graduation from the University of Washington. Waverly went on to graduate top of her class before being assigned to the Street Crime Division, where she would be mentored by Trevor Hackworth, a veteran detective who saw her potential as a Police Officer, though he was worried about some of her more extreme behavior and methods as the years progressed.

Although efficient at her job, Waverly eventually became known as a hot tempered smart mouth with an itchy trigger finger, although her hand-to-hand combat prowess due to her extensive Martial Arts background completely dwarfed her marksmanship and the fact that she had the driving skill of a Hollywood Stunt Driver with a hint of recklessness. While her first year was pretty tame, she was suspended for six months during her second year after multiple counts of use of excessive force and brutality, property damage and disobeying orders. The last straw was when she brutally beat up her younger sister's ex-boyfriend after confronting him for hitting her, leaving him hospitalized for several weeks.

After her department dealt with the slew of lawsuits, disciplinary action and sending Waverly to anger management, Internal Affairs, the Police Commission and the Police Union decided that even with her extreme methods and behavior, she still made her city a better place and played a role in numerous high-profile arrests and an astonishing number of convictions. Though it was decided that she was to be reinstated, Waverly was placed under her mentor's watchful eye.

One year later, Trevor is assassinated in an explosion that left Waverly injured. Now lost and preparing to be terminated as she knows full well that the Organized Crime Unit doesn't want her in...and does not believe that Street Crime wants her back after her track record that led to lawsuits, disciplinary action before being stuck with a desk job and probably another round of suspension, Waverly eventually resigned from the Force.
