BACKGROUND: Tsurai is a small collection of people based off a theory called 'The Web' - an intricately woven chart detailing that each and every person in Hathian is somehow connected. Connected by blood, guilt by association and related social structure. Utilizing The Web to hand-select people (citizens, other gang members and minors that are of age to role-play within the gang), Tsurai aims to 'fix' people and turn them against the central part of their web in order to mend Hathian and purge it of what Tsurai deems as evil. Tsurai would dabble in the production and use of DMT--a drug delicately processed and uncommonly used to experience powerful hallucinations. DMT experiences are often life changing and can easily open a target's mind up to the madness that Tsurai finds justified. Tsurai's main purpose in Hathian is manipulation. They are catalysts that desire change in the people that have wronged them. Their main goal is to change and make an impact on Hathian, however little that change may be and however long it may take. By focusing on not only other gangs but citizens and new members that desire gang role-play, we aim to get people involved with intricately woven and cerebral role-play that will have an impact on anyone involved. Background-wise, Tsurai was an idea manifested in early 2014 and since then it has been a plot that I'd been focusing on without any other members. Voltiel kidnapped people in order to purge them of what she felt was 'wrong' with them. Although that had been the main premise of Tsurai, it wasn't the sole focus. Among kidnapping Voltiel also destroyed property, turned families against one another and spurred drama between civilians that had absolutely no tie to her. Inevitably she made quite a few enemies and in doing so, some people saw the logical side to her madness. Those people have been tethered to her (Ginger, Kiryu, Tabitha) and now will be aiding her in her manipulative games, as she will be involved in their own drama as well. Tsurai will make money off ransom deals and the distribution of DMT (which they will also use to influence their captives to an extent). I feel that their way of income is unique because they wont be necessarily dealing drugs, but there will be word of DMT on the street. It is extremely hard to acquire and/or manufacture, so it may be of interest to particular characters. Voltiel KNOWS how to produce DMT but won't go out of her way to make large quantities, as it involves obtaining a plant that is banned in the United States. Ransoms money won't be asked for a whole lot because I want the gang to be supported, but not wealthy. Their background with the police is also something to note. Tsurai feels that the HPD as a whole (even 'good' cops) must be purged of entirely. While they abhor the HPD, they won't attack them outright, but may encourage civilians to riot or organize riots, brainwash normal civilians to attack the police, etc ... Ranks with Tsurai is also unique. It will be a small gang (a stage two gang) unless it expands and there's an opening for a stage three in the future. Voltiel will have Kiryu whom she sees as her left hand, and Ginger as her right. Each member of Tsurai will be handed a flower crown (yes, an actual crown of flowers) and at first it will only have one flower. They can earn flowers through things that please Vol, Kiryu or Ginger. The flower crown represents purity in their eyes, and with each terrible thing purged, it will grow. Symbolism is a heavy aspect in Tsurai--I can't even begin to list what other things Voltiel has tried to teach numerous people. Interacting with her and the gang would be the best way to gain insight. I feel that there's way more to explain, but this is what it would be in a nutshell (really, I could write a novel for as long as it has been developing).
UNIQUE: Voltiel currently runs the butcher shop. If I am not allowed to run it as a gang lead (which if I were able to, it would be utilized QUITE a bit ICly) then I will be handing it off to another member (if that is also allowed, not 100% sure how that would work). The shop since Voltiel has acquired it has been nearly vacant, and the meat has rotted. I have not been keeping up with any plotlines in the butcher shop (admittedly) because of my gang idea, and this is potentially a flaw. It's something that I'd really like to work on and/or encourage if I hand it over to someone else. There is a closed off portion of the butcher shop where nasty, evil things can happen in secret. Kiryu and Ginger initially found Vol through the shop (because they stashed a body in the freezer without her permission. Naughty!)
FLAW: Aside from inactivity in the butcher shop, I feel that one of my major flaws may be kidnapping TOO MUCH. It may become redundant or no longer desired. In which case, there is plenty more to do. It's a flaw that is easily solved with other plot ideas (we currently have several in the works, too!)
POTENTIAL ENEMY: In no particular order we have involvement with: The Immortals, Kouta and her bakery, past involvement with the Devouring when I was in Sumfai (whom we would be glad to get involved with now), The Vonds, citizens as a whole, HPD, Ellis and potentially the Gein. We'd love to get involved with Rozu and other upcoming gangs, HGH and FDH. The Immortals and HPD are definitely enemies. Rozu and Tsurai would not get along (I have a STRONG feeling about that). Literally anyone and everyone is welcomed to have storylines with us if we get up and running.
EXPERIENCE:Personally, I think I handle people well. There are of course some people who will not want to engage me or my gang, which is perfectly fine and something I expect down the road. Unless someone is very blatantly against me, or detrimental to me or someone in Tsurai, I will treat everyone equally. I don't pick favorites OOCly, nor do I try to make enemies. I have a positive outlook when it comes to roleplay and when I get knocked down, I always get back up and look for new experiences. Experience-wise, I have owned several factions outside of CD. I have been involved with SL military and have lead factions in very, VERY stressful communities with high expectations. In CD I have been a part of two gangs and currently lead a business (that I would love to utilize more, as explained already.)
IDEAS:Tsurai plans to engage new players as they would older players. Those who seek an interest in Tsurai or any part of our plotlines would be included somehow.
OTHER:In no particular order we have involvement with: The Immortals, Kouta and her bakery, past involvement with the Devouring when I was in Sumfai (whom we would be glad to get involved with now), The Vonds, citizens as a whole, HPD, Ellis and potentially the Gein. We'd love to get involved with Rozu and other upcoming gangs, HGH and FDH. The Immortals and HPD are definitely enemies. Rozu and Tsurai would not get along (I have a STRONG feeling about that). Literally anyone and everyone is welcomed to have storylines with us if we get up and running.
