The Deadly Sins

In the city of Norman, Oklahoma, not everything is as it seems. Age-old rivalries between families are ignited as a new threat is brought to light, and when they are given the choice of either overlooking their differences to save Norman, or letting their past tear them apart,

Willa Samson ✘ Age: 30 ✘ Sexuality: Up to Player ✘ Face Claim: Lara Pulver

“Those who say money can’t buy happiness, have never been rich.”

✘ The role of Willa Samson is [Open]
Personality

Willa is, in a word, greedy. She came into ownership of the family after being the oldest of two daughters born to her parents. She is generous to anyone in her family, and cold to anyone outside of it. Willa is eccentric with her money spending, and does not hesitate to kill or injure anyone who tries to take it away from her. She fears nothing but losing her money, and would give her life before giving away her fortune. She owns and runs Musique Antique, the headquarters for the Samson family. Although courteous to her family members, she only really acts kindly to them on order to get the goods from them, shutting the brats up with a couple hundred dollars, and then turning a profit off of their juvenile gullibility. Willa has few regrets in her life, her greatest one being the fact that she has never settled down in a relationship. But it is impossible for her, as she cares more for her money than she does anyone or anything, and often ends relationships because of her paranoia about her significant other trying to steal her money or ruin the business.

History

Willa was born and raised in Musique Antique, literally. Her parents, desperate to pinch any penny they could, lived in the back of the large music and gaming store. At age seven, Willa was dressed up as a homeless child and sent to the streets to panhandle even more money for her parents’ bottomless pockets. When she grew too old and recognizable, she was then forced to act as a transport for the illegally acquired music and games. Not given the opportunity for a proper education, Willa was home-schooled (poorly) by a hired tutor, another attempt of her parents to show to the other families in Oklahoma exactly how rich the Samsons were. When she wasn’t having facts and figures crammed into her head, Willa was on missions to steal and rob from smaller music stores, essentially running them out of business and into the ground. But not all was well in the family, and when Willa’s parents were “accidentally” killed when she was just 21, Willa was forced to take hold of Musique Antique and steer it to safety. Although it was intended to be temporary, Willa was put under the same spell as her parents, and she became obsessed with money, and would do anything in her power to get it.
Soon Willa became just as bad as her parents, slipping and sliding through the legal system and continuing to rake in profit from those in town who were oblivious to the massive rivalries between the seven powers. But Willa was young and foolish, and on her 22nd birthday, she had one too many drinks and ended up having sex with Patrick, the leader of the Glovers. However, Willa never conceived, actually taking in one of your cousins, who was already fifteen, to help with the family business. Because she never told Patrick this, he still had the conception the children were his. After a second time with Patrick, and another cousin taken in, this one named Todrick, he was again left with the misconception that the children were his, and not adopted. What made it worse was that Willa referred to them as her own, often forgetting that they were adopted. But because of this, Willa decided to keep to herself and began to become more inwards, more family-oriented. Although Willa was not ashamed of her children, she was more concerned it would cost too much to raise them. She still has no idea that the children are Patrick’s, and she and Patrick still have radio static between each other. But now Mariah and Jacob are both old enough to participate in the family business of deceit and trickery, and Willa has made it her goal to teach them every trick in the book. 
She takes great pride in her family name, and will defend their reputation and fortune to the death. Although Morgan is Willa’s second in command, she relies little on her younger sister, instead asking the younger one to take care of things like actually working at the store, while Willa does all the dirty work. She cares more for Morgan than she lets on, because Willa thinks that Morgan should learn to cope without her, in the case that Willa dies the same way that her parents did. But as the dawn of the New Threat arrives, Willa is becoming paranoid. She fears that her fortune will finally be destroyed, and her business brought to rubble. She vehemently opposes the New Threat, and will do anything in her power to stop them and whatever they stand for, because whatever it is does not fare well for the Samson family fortune.

Jessica Wakayama ✘ Age: 31 ✘ Sexuality: Heterosexual (Married) ✘ Face Claim: Lucy Liu

“That which can not be won through reason, can be won through aggression.”

✘ The role of Jessica Wakayama is [Open]
Personality

Jessica is stubborn. Raised to confront problems when they arose, she is a strong believer in violence as not exactly a last resort, but always as an option. She lives and breathes the Wakayama Boxing Ring, and spends lots of time either training herself or other members of her family in the martial arts. She hosts most of the fights at the Wakayama Boxing Ring, and cares little more for the relations between other families, considering herself a neutral party in the grand scheme of things. So long as she is on good terms with the other families, she could care less what they think of each other. She is very self-centered, and only cares for other family members because their deaths would mean that the Ring would fall into the hands of the highest bidder. A voice of reason, Jessica defends her beliefs and values strongly, and thinks that the New Threat is not a force to be reckoned with.

History

Jessica didn’t want to become part of the mess that was Norman. She was much more introverted than the rest of her siblings, who wrestled with each other practically since the day they were born. But Jessica’s parents gave her no choice wether to join the Ring or not, and at the age of ten, she was overlooking fights between other families, despite having no ideas who they were or why they were fighting. She saw broken bones and ruined lives, she saw men and women alike limp out of the Ring, and she saw people die there, bleeding out on the floor, screaming in pain, and she failed to realize the gravity of those deaths. At the age of 15, she began to train, as she realized that there was little she could do to escape the fate of her family, and the responsibilities that they bestowed upon her. She soon picked up the martial arts quickly and became the most proficient of all of her siblings, surpassing them in skill and intelligence in the field, largely because of the degree of exposure she had to the violence and tricks beforehand.
When Jessica’s parents passed, they overlooked her two older brothers and anointed her leader of the Ring. She picked up the company and gladly began to lead it, a natural leader who knew how to handle situations well, and had a very good habit of avoiding violence at all cost, having experienced her fill of violence and gore at a young age. Although she is not pacifist, Jessica does prefer to keep arguments and disagreements out of the Ring, but that rarely cuts down on the number of visitors to what has become a modern day battle ground for the city. She cares greatly for all of her siblings and cousins, and encourages them to help her run the Ring, which includes caring for the casualties and keeping word of the fatalities out of the news. 
She is one of the few leaders who is married, loyally devoted to Bao, who she met when he was passing through Norman. He is unaware of the scale of violence between the families, and simply thinks that the popularity stems from the fact that it is the only Boxing Ring for quite some time. Jessica is sure that Bao remains blissfully ignorant of the bullshit in the city, often using time alone with him as an escape from all that is going on where they come from. Jessica fears letting Bao know about the rivalries, as she knows not how he will react.
But as news of the New Threat reaches Jessica’s weary ears, she is concerned. She already disapproves of the violence that is already present in Norman, and so she has grown reluctant to welcome new violence to her already hectic life. She strongly disapproves of the New Threat, but because of her insisting that she is neutral, can not take action against them. Her greatest fear is that they will fight in her ring, and that they will use their evidentially grand powers to tell Bao about the truth behind the ring. She is not willing to take grand part in a battle against the New Threat, and finds her stance as neutral threatened as the Threat begins to leave little messages for Bao throughout his daily life. She is greatly conflicted over wether she should keep the rivalries a secret or not, but for the time being, has decided her husband is better in the dark, than in the light where he can be threatened and possibly killed.

Richard Graceler ✘ Age: 27 ✘ Sexuality: Up to Player ✘ Face Claim: Colin O’Donoghue

“The past is behind us, the present is a gift, and the future is yet to be determined, so live in the moment.”

✘ The role of Richard Graceler is [Open]
Personality

Richard is a business man, plain and simple. He gets what he needs, does the business, and gets out. He’s cold and reserved, and doesn’t remember you unless you owe him something. Or rather, that’s how he seems. The truth is that Richard is incredibly fatherly and cares deeply for everyone, even his enemies. He is generous and willing to lend money out to anyone, so long as they repay him with something of equal or greater value within the time they both agreed on. Sociable and charming, Richard is an excellent people person if you manage to coax him out of the walls that he has put up to protect him from all the chaos around him. He is generous and hosts many parties that take place in Norman, but is also very distant. Relationships do not end well with him, largely because he fails to make any emotional connection, for some reason that he does not let be known to anyone in the town. And, although he tries to be funny, he finds that he has a very corny sense of humor that people only laugh at to get on his good side. 

History

Richard took charge of the bank instead of attending college, handed the company by an aging (but not dying) father. Richard’s father had taught him long and hard about money and finances, and Richard is one of the few leaders who actually got a proper education from elementary to high school. This makes him a bit more intelligent than the other leaders, but also a bit pretentious without noticing it. When he was still young, Richard was working at the front counter of the bank, handling the money of people who were influential without even knowing it, assuming it was regular transactions at the bank. Unlike the other leaders, Richard didn’t know about the rivalry of the families even after his father’s death, which came before the older man could tell Richard the truth about Norman. Richard discovered the rivalries on his own, and so he is still a bit juvenile to all the drama, and is easily misled when it comes to the events going on in town.
When Richard was a few years into the business, a young girl came to him, claiming to be his long-lost sister. Since this was before he knew of the scale of events in Norman, and so he took her in and adopted her into the family. Their strictly brother and sister relationship evolved over time, and she soon told him that her name was Rose. She explained that their father had several affairs while he was alive, and that she was his half-sister, who had come to the town after receiving a letter from an anonymous party telling her she was needed by him. Richard had not sent the letter, but took it as a blessing, and quickly appointed Rose as his second in command. They have run the bank together ever since and spend a lot of their time together.
Richard is, however, fearful of the New Threat. The bank has been failing as of late, losing business to some unknown party, and he thinks that they may be to blame. Although he will not come and say it, he has let Rose know of his fear and speculation. He continues to conduct his business as usual, but is still speculative of who is behind the sudden fall in interest of his bank, the only one available for quite some time in any direction. He is against the New Threat, as they upset the balance that he relies on for income, but is also largely opposed to them as they have put his family, lifestyle, reputation, and income on the line. Richard can and will go to arms if the New Threat makes themselves known and confess to sabotaging his company but, for now, he can just sit and wait as the New Threat sets the stage for whatever they may have planned.

Jace Erickson ✘ Age: 26 ✘ Sexuality: Up to Player ✘ Face Claim: Sebastian Stan

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

✘ The role of Jace Erickson is [Open]
Personality

Jace is the stereotypical southerner. He’s humorous and quaint, with an almost too honest disposition. He’s a extroverted people person who is always up for an adventure and a night out on the town. Jace is an almost religious drinker whose lips have seen the lips of a bottle many more times than they have the lips of a woman. He takes most everything in his life for granted, and makes no quarrel of losing business to someone without a sense of humor. He’s a real father figure to most of the family leaders, despite being one of the youngest. Jace is very much a shoulder to cry on, helpful and kind, but also the one who speaks up when issues are on the table, and is credited with first pointing out the New Threat.

History

Jace is incredibly proud of his background. He was always outgoing and kind, a real people person in Norman. He was also among the few leaders who got a proper education, and therefore knew Richard for a short time. But he and Richard never clicked, so he moved on and became part of a bit more energetic crowd, playing on the soccer team (if it could actually be considered a team, there were only five or so people on it) when he wasn’t working for his parents at the Pawn Shop they owned, learning how to price objects and coax people into letting him buy object for prices half of what they were actually worth. He gained a silver tongue and a penchant for going to parties and making more friends than he could count on his hands. 
Jace transitioned slowly into responsibility, learning quickly how to balance his personal and social life so that they could both exist in peace without having to sacrifice one or the other. When his father passed away, Jace nearly let the business drop, taking on drinking and partying in form of mourning. But when his cousin, Sara, intervened, his social life was interrupted and she did a careful job of keeping him on track. In return, he would teach her the tricks of the trade and she soon moved in with him. For a short time, Sara was his second in command. But she was shortly when she got married to Craig, who took on her traditional family name and became part of the Erickson family. Jace and Craig bonded, and he soon demoted Sara and replaced her with Craig. 
So with his life on track and a great friend helping him run the Pawn Shop, Jace was better than ever. He struck up deals with people from all families and origins, buying and selling the most bizarre thing, so long as he was sure he could make a profit off of it. But upon the appearance of the New Threat, he began to be concerned. Sara had begun to be more and more aggressive about her demotion, despite the fact that they had put it to rest years ago. He was losing clients, and like many other families, he was losing money. To cope, he began to sell drugs on the side, not daring to sample them out of fear of addiction, but could not save Sara from sampling them and becoming addicted to them herself. Although it was selfish, he thanked the God in heaven for getting her addicted, as it finally got her to stop talking about and guilt tripping him over the fact that he had demoted her after everything she had done for him.
So now he is faced with many problems: a failing company, a drug-addicted friend, and an overall sense of guilt for everything that is happening. He is the leader of those who oppose the New Threat, and speaks openly to the newspaper and citizens about the dangers of them, and has begun to train with a rifle in case of attack. He treats Craig and Sara like family (as they are), and would give his life for them. Although he still does his best to put off a friendly and kind vibe, there is no denying that things have become tense for him and everyone else at the Pawn Shop.

He is the leader of those who oppose the New Threat, and speaks openly to the newspaper and citizens about the dangers of them, and has begun to train with a rifle in case of attack. He treats Craig and Sara like family (as they are), and would give his life for them. Although he still does his best to put off a friendly and kind vibe, there is no denying that things have become tense for him and everyone else at the Pawn Shop.

Leslie Pa’krou ✘ Age: 42 ✘ Sexuality: Up to Player ✘ Face Claim: Gina Torres

“True happiness cannot come from material things, but from family”

✘ The role Leslie Pa’krou is [Open]
Personality

Leslie was one of the three lucky people to be born into the Pa’krou family and although she was born into a family of selfishness and hatred, that is not something that she allowed to be apart of her life. Owning a museum she allows anyone and everyone to enter if they wish. People think that she’s just show but they’re wrong. Leslie is genuinely a nice person unlike her younger sister Sasha. She would give anything to keep her family safe and although is not a very violent person, has a very sharp tongue and is not afraid to use it when needs be. Leslie hopes that those that come from different families will all get along one day in the very near future. The older woman does not like conflict however will not hesitate to defend herself and anyone who surrounds her. If you were to meet her at one of these points you might describe her as sassy but, luckily, that is not a side that rears its ugly head very often as she tries to be a very down-to-earth person.  

History

Leslie was born into wealth and with an older brother she was the joy of her parents world since they had always wanted a girl. Even though they did sometimes resent Jacob, the two siblings seemed to get along fine. When Sasha was born, it was Leslie’s turn to be ignored but she didn’t mind. When they grew older the family of five from Michigan soon found themselves in the state of Oklahoma and almost immediately everything changed for the young girl. Her sweet happy-go-lucky personality faded, disagreeing with the choice of movement and she became a sassy eccentric teenager. After a shock of reality when tragically her father died in a skiing accident, Leslie came crashing back down to earth with the sudden realization of how short life was and that her reckless behavior was not appropriate. Reconnecting with her family, she begun to feel that sense of belonging again and realized just how much her ways had affected the family. In an effort to patch things up, she started taking the role of ‘older sister’ and showed her little sister everything that she would need to know. However for Sasha it appeared that the teenager was given two mothers and did not agree with this at all. She slowly began to rebel just has Leslie had, but this time no matter how many surprises life throwed at her she was not giving up. This continued well into her adult life and although the older sister tries her best with the younger girl Leslie can’t seem to find that connection with her sister.
When Leslie turned fourty she was granted head of the Pa’krou family and it was an honor that she did not take lightly. Many people would allow the new found power to go to their heads but Leslie tried her best and keeps grounded. Opening a new museum in Oklahoma was an attempt to bring the family closer together. Although it failed, she did see some light in the subject and allowed everyone to enter no matter where they were from. There has been a slight rift between her and her mother due to her mother not agreeing with Leslie’s choice to remain single even if it makes her happy. Out of stubbornness, she kept single throughout most of her adult life but doesn’t mind taking her mothering qualities elsewhere to the children who really need it. Leslie is a perfect example of not needing to have a partner to make yourself happy or to be successful, something she takes great pride in.
She takes great pride in her family name, and will defend their reputation and fortune to the death. Although Morgan is Willa’s second in command, she relies little on her younger sister, instead asking the younger one to take care of things like actually working at the store, while Willa does all the dirty work. She cares more for Morgan than she lets on, because Willa thinks that Morgan should learn to cope without her, in the case that Willa dies the same way that her parents did. But as the dawn of the New Threat arrives, Willa is becoming paranoid. She fears that her fortune will finally be destroyed, and her business brought to rubble. She vehemently opposes the New Threat, and will do anything in her power to stop them and whatever they stand for, because whatever it is does not fare well for the Samson family fortune.
One of the only people to be welcoming the New Threat with open arms is just another wedge that has pulled Leslie and Sasha apart. Leslie sees this as an opportunity to allow more people into the community and is trying to get others to see the same. She does not care about the wealth and riches that her family posses but instead about happiness. Leslie is somewhat of a teacher, and has made countless attempts to speak to the people that surround her, telling them that they should not be afraid of the new people but instead welcome them with open arms and allow them into the life. Conflict will just create more animosity than that which already fills the air in her mind. So far though, her plans have not worked although she is relentless and will continue to try the case of the New Threat.

Patrick Glover ✘ Age: 31 ✘ Sexuality: Up to Player ✘ Face Claim: Matt Bomer

“It is not about from what you are made, but into what you make yourself.”

✘ The role of Patrick Glover is [Open]
Personality

Patrick is fickle. He’s an emotional chameleon, always changing his thoughts and actions, not sticking to one personality and attitude for any extended period of time. But there is one thing that can be assured about Patrick, that can be tied down and promised with sworn accuracy, and that is his passion. In everything Patrick does, he is passionate, giving his 110% to every little thing he’s asked to do. Being a chef, he’s always over the top and goes above and beyond whatever he is asked. Cooking is Patrick’s one natural talent, the one thing in which he can bestow all his talent and focus. He’s reliable, but can sometimes be too jumpy, a bit too energetic, which can cause a lot of trouble when he’s asked to keep a low profile.

History

Patrick has always been passionate about his job. From birth, he was in the kitchen, handing his dad spoons and whisks, sneaking bites of raw cookie dough and snickering as his father flung icing at him. As he grew older, it was only natural that Patrick take up the art as well, and so he did, assisting his father in his old age. When Patrick’s father passed, he moved on, using cooking as a form of escape. The business boomed, livelier than ever, and he finally had everything under control. Things had been rocky after his father’s passing, but since the business was back in place, and the income was practically flying to him, Patrick saw it as high time that he threw some sort of party. The entire town had been in a rut, as Patrick’s dad had been quite a comedian, joker, and peacekeeper, so he teamed up with Norman’s finest and got the party underway. But it was also the birthday of a young girl named Willa, so Patrick saw it as a brilliant idea to incorporate her birthday into the party as well, using the excuse of another year to magnetize a crowd into the party room in Patrick’s restaurant. But an open bar ended up not being the best idea, and he ended up flirting with and finally seducing young Willa (who was but a year younger than himself). Although he had a very vivid recall of the night, Willa lacked the memory. Patrick was going to tell her, until he discovered that she was part of the Samsons, and decided that to avoid rivalry or drama, he would keep to himself.
Patrick avoided Willa for some time, keeping to himself and going out of his way to make sure that they didn’t run into each other. Finally, after a few years, Patrick got back to focusing on the restaurant, forgetting about Willa and the one night they got drunk, assuring that his business boomed and family stayed strong. In the years between nights with Willa, Patrick’s cousin, Mariana, came to the restaurant and helped him as well, focusing more on interior decorating and customer service than actually touching a single pot or pan. After some time, Patrick realized what an excellent job Mariana was doing, and promoted her to second in command, and soon she was helping him run the business smoothly and effectively. The two became a dynamic duo in the restaurant business, drawing attention to the little town of Norman and, after a feature on some small cable show, began drawing an out-of-town crowd. It was then that the worst happened. On one night, when Patrick and Mariana were out looking for new tablecloths, the restaurant was burned down by an anonymous party.
Upon discovering this tragedy, Patrick nearly gave up. As second in command, Mariana stepped in and reopened the restaurant at another smaller, more inconspicuous location. To lift Patrick’s spirits, she threw a party, inviting none other than Willa to the event. Again, mind blurred by alcohol and tragedy, Patrick and Willa met and had yet another one-night-stand, three years after the first. After this Patrick’s spirits were lifted and he began a slow upwards crawl to the top of the restaurant business. With what little hope he had left, Patrick picked up the pieces of his business and slowly put it back together, swearing subtle vengeance on whoever destroyed the old place.
When he caught wind of the New Threat, Patrick immediately blamed them. A monster without a face and a rebel without a cause, he reasoned that they would likely do anything in their power to destroy the other family and anything that might help them again. So Patrick took up arms and began to watch anyone suspicious who showed up at his restaurant. Although he has no solid evidence for the New Threat destroying his restaurant, he swears on his father’s grave that it was them, and will stop at nothing to make sure that there is both justice and revenge for what they did to him and his restaurant, after so many years of pouring his entire life and savings into it.

Nikolai Flores ✘ Age: 29 ✘ Sexuality: Up to Player ✘ Face Claim: Jensen Ackles

“The opposite of a strongly held belief is but another strongly held belief”

✘ The role of Nikolai Flores is [Open]
Personality

Nikolai is extreme. He’s quick to jump to a gun and brash in every sense. He’s got a fiery temper and is quick to judge anyone he meets, and is eager to impress any of his followers. His thought process is shoot now and ask questions later, and that if someone disagrees with him, they are better off dead. He hates every one of the seven powers in Norman, and has made it his personal goal to destroy each one of them, removing their foundation and watching them scramble for safety. He believes that they have been in power for too long, and that it’s time that a younger, smarter, stronger, and better generation take charge of the plain town of Norman, either by will or by force. The choice is that of the seven powers.

History

Nikolai wasn’t always loud, raised in Norman from birth. As a child, he was awkward and fat, with no friends and no social skills. He let this fester and boil, let this lack of sociality fester and boil until it grew to pure loathing and hatred for anyone and everyone who was associated in even the slightest with those who were part of the seven families. His parents were unaware of this, mostly because Nikolai’s high grades were all that really ever mattered to them. In his senior year, Nikolai dropped out of high school, tired of the life he was living, and finally left Norman. For years, he travelled around Oklahoma and northern Texas, wandering the land and taking whatever jobs would give him a roof over his head for the night. Some of them were dignifying, some of them not so much. He was 28 when he returned to Norman, and did so with a vengance.
He blamed everyone in the town for his attitude. Those who laughed at him and hated him would no longer recognize him, not after he had grown older and lost weight, not after he had packed on muscle and acquired a southern twang. No, Nikolai was a whole new breed of man (if he could even be considered man anymore), and did his best to destroy each and every family. Stealing from the museum, burning down the restaurant, robbing each and every family of their money— it infuriated him to watch them pick themselves up after his schemes, to watch them dust themselves off and act like it never happened. Nikolai would have none of it. So he left for another two years, travelling just outside of Norman, gathering a following, and army, that would help him in his plan. He built up a group of people who would do what he asked when he asked it without question, and soon he was ready to go to war.
He started by installing them in everyone’s lives. They worked as interns at the businesses, scoping out the jobs and then dropping off the maps to report back to Nikolai, telling him everything about the families. Finally, he had the best plan. He would bring the families up, he would help them, and when they all were at his peak, he would burn them all and watch them fall apart. He was going to destroy the seven families from the inside out, even if it was the last thing he ever did. With nothing but an army and years of bottled up hatred and fury, Nikolai led the charge against the seven, his second in command being the smartest one out of the bunch, named Jared. He knew his way around computers and data, and so Nikolai trusted that Jared could help him with anything he needed, so long as he could give Jared food and a place to sleep. So it came to be that new people popped up in Norman, new faces who seemed innocent but hid daggers behind their backs, all the clever working of none other than Nikolai Flores.
