The diner was busy. Another day in new York, another morning rush. He bought a coffee and drank it down quickly, ignoring the bustle around him as he played a little game with himself. Remember the names of as many people as you can. John, Mike, Nancy, Franklin, Lilith, Steven, October, now there was a strange one. Pushing the thought away he stood, paying for his breakfast before heading out the door. Just one more young man in a hoodie in New York city.

Today the country mourns the loss of one of it's greatest entrepreneurs. Alex Carmichael, 33, was found dead today at his office in New York. Police are treating the death as suspicious.

He fought down a smile, remembering the feeling. Remembering how he had stalked Carmichael, how he had tricked him, how he had killed him.

Mr Carmichael was a beloved figure in New York and indeed the world. Using his hard won business empire to support a life dedicated to helping others. Indeed he had just returned from the Oculous Charity Ball, where his patronage had helped to raise 2.8 billion for various charities around the globe.

He remembered sticking his knives in that child molesting, wife beating b@stard and he remembered liking it. If only people could see, if only they could understand the joke. But only he could get the absurdity of it all, the underlying connections that hid in plain sight. Ever since that day in Afganistan it had been like his brain was lighting up. He was thinking and thinking and thinking and it was burning through his mind and he couldn’t stop but God, he didn’t want to stop and why would he? He was a mechanical toy with a wound up spring inside so he was running, running and he could never slow down, even though he was running to his death, but he didn’t care because right now he felt alive and perfect and beautiful.

On the corner of two streets, he didn’t know where, he began his act. Flipping and twirling and throwing and catching with hands and legs that weren’t his own. A crowd gathered, throwing coins that jingled on the hard street but he paid them no mind. Behind the dizzying acrobatics and the sheer fluid spectacle of his performance he began to smile. A real smile, a genuine smile, that spread out from the corner of his mouth and up, up to his eye. His real eye, the one he had been born with.

This show was just getting started.

The hospital ward was quiet in the way that only hospital wards can be. The air had a tautness to it, a sense of expectation, like death was waiting patiently for life to lose it's struggle. Maggie Hall walked briskly past the empty beds, footsteps clicking and scrubs rustling, until she came to the last one in the row. She had been a nurse for a long time, longer than she cared to admit, but the sight of the bed's occupant still caused a lump to form in her throat. He was a young man, or at least he had been. Not a day past twenty, with bright blue eyes and a face that loved to smile. Even now, as he lay broken and dismembered a ghost of a smile still played across his lips and flitted up to his one remaining eye as he caught sight of her.

“It's time. Will you need my help getting ready?”

The young man shook his head.

“No thank you Maggie. If this is to be the last thing I ever do, I will do it myself.”

It broke her heart seeing him struggle upright using his one arm, the bed sheets falling away to reveal a body splashed with scar tissue. His legs were gone at the knee, the lengths uneven. His left side bearing the distinctive marks of shrapnel up to the missing arm. As he turned to pull himself into a wheelchair she caught sight of the back of his head where the surgeon had shaved the hair away. A jolt of realisation struck her.

It went right through him. Into the eye and out the back of the skull. Merciful God, how is he alive?

If he saw the horror on her face he didn’t mention it as she wheeled him to the operating theatre. He managed to get onto the table himself as the doctors set up their tools. One lent in close, a needle in his hand.

“You may feel some slight pain.”

The boy laughed at that. He was still laughing as the door closed behind her before the drugs came and took him away. Beyond the reach of the knives to a place without pain, without bombs, where he could run and laugh and love. She secretly hoped that he would stay there forever, that he wouldn’t wake. But the world was not that kind, it never was.

Hey guys. So can I post in the rpg without making a new account? Ive got an idea for a character but it's a real hassle making a new one. I mean I will if people want me too, but Id rather not.

Just popping in to say, I would be all over an 'Old Man Logan' style rpg. It would be awesome.

Just a few things to think about. Maybe dont mention what happened in the backstory. Say, 'this is how things are' and then let people fill it in themselves, or not. It could add a certain feel to thee rp if the history behind it isnt known for certain. Also, would there be a story to follow, like revenge against someone or a new challenge? A totally free form story seems likely to fizzle out rather than produce a good rp as a side effect of not having the established teams involved.
