Contacts
  • Jack -- Sir. Seems to have his act together, which is always a huge relief.
  • Alsatia -- Huh, so I have a roommate, at least until the end of the semester. Seems nice, a little goofy, with AMAZING HAIR. Seriously, that hair is... there are no words.
  • Meadow -- What is it with the amazing hair around here? Is it something in the water? And she owns a CANDY SHOP. Very dangerous.
  • Dashiel -- Holy crap, are soulmates even possible? Maybe I've just got a bad case of the fangirl.
  • Alexander and Tony -- This pair is a hoot. At some point need to go club-hopping with these two.
  • Richard -- All business. Looks to be 100% by-the-book, which is 100% OK by me. Excellent contact to have.
  • Aerie -- Holy crap. Repeat after me: weapons are NOT toys.
  • Eve -- Here's an interesting one. Not sure if she's a ninja or just pretending.
  • Juliette Keyes -- Pretty sure she's not a ninja.
  • Linnete -- I can tell we're totally going to be besties. Like, totally.
  • Calevaro -- What a friendly guy! Too bad he couldn't stick around longer to chat.

  • Dawson -- New owner of Styx and Stones. Real chatty guy... at least he knows how to keep his guard up.
  • Roger -- Nice guy. Big guy. But nice.
  • Daize -- Surfer chick. Entertaining, and apparently the face of Zimzala Surf Bin, or if not, she should be. I smell profit.
  • Dom -- Oh, you thought I wouldn't recognize you? Sorry, you still smell like money, no matter how you try to hide it.
  • Verlaine -- A long way from the UCP frat parties I remember her from. Priest... priestess? Reverend? Still wrapping my head around this one.
  • Eden -- Well, happy Valentine's Day to you too!
  • Adeline -- Welcome to UCP! You have depths to you (ha ha). Our research, so different, but maybe so similar. A fascinating colleague!

RP Hooks
  • (Still Kinda) New in Town: Moved to Prospect from New York a few years ago, immediately enrolled at UCP. Spent almost all of her time on and around campus. Now that she's graduated, she splits her time between lecturing on campus and her office at the Black Ridge Building. And still doesn't get out much.
There's this great [fill in the blank] right around the corner!
  • Fame: Had some success as a model before she moved to Prospect, and has good enough genes that she still looks about the same in her mid-twenties. Might be recognized from a print ad or billboard. Has also been making some waves lately in the business world after she published her Ph.D. research.
Do I know you? You seem familiar.
  • Perpetual Academic: Enrolled in 2014, graduated with a Master's degree in Economics in 2016, graduated with her Ph.D. in May 2020, Dr. Welkin is currently teaching and advising as a Professor of Practice. She spends a lot of time hanging around campus.
Jesus, haven't you graduated yet?
  • Instructor: She's currently teaching freshman-level Math 3C: Precalculus and a single economic or business theory class that changes up every semester. Undergrads might know her as an instructor, business & similar majors might have her as an instructor or even as their advisor.
Can I get an extension? My grandma died. Again. No, the other one. The other other one.
  • Shady Past: She was a bit of a mafia princess back home; her father was The Man To Know when you needed your cash flow scrubbed. Need East Coast contacts? She might know a name or two.
Ainchu Jack Welkin's kid? You hearda guy Big Jim McGhee?
I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.

Disclaimer
  • Frequently interrupted by RL: My RL is hectic, so I'm only able to get online a little here and there. And as much as I try to avoid it, I may need to log off at inopportune times. I appreciate your understanding.
  • Open to the Darkness in the WoD: Though Molly is set at Risk 0, I'll usually agree to permanent or semi-permanent changes to the character if the drama is awesome and appropriate. Essentially I just don't want to "pre-consent" to any of the following:
    • Random Acts of Death and/or Dismemberment;
    • Extended imprisonment, enslavement, and/or mind control;
    • ...and so on. That's not to say I won't consent to any of the above -- I don't mind being a victim! -- but anything longer than a scene or two, let's discuss it first. Also, if my RP is heading in a direction that might result in one of the above, I'd really appreciate a friendly OOC warning, just to make sure we're all on the same page.

Background
  • Streetwise Dot-filled.pngDot-filled.pngDot-filled.pngDot-filled.pngDot.png or appropriate New Jersey/New York-area organized crime Contacts or IC background:
If you've got New Jersey/New York-area organized crime contacts, one of them might've let you know to keep an eye out for "Jack Welkin's kid"; rumor has it she moved here recently. Jack Welkin was an extremely successful 'entrepreneur' with his 'import/export' business, especially since he was willing to work with anyone for the right price. Remaining independent made him some enemies, but not limiting himself was extremely lucrative. Unfortunately, someone's patience finally wore thin when he did business with their competition, and a message was delivered when Amalia was nearly killed in a suspicious car crash; her mom wasn't so lucky. The hit had the opposite effect on Jack from what was intended: instead of backing down, his rage led him to be even less cautious with his associations, and two years later he got the message loud and clear when he finally got a bullet himself.


  • Streetwise Dot-filled.pngDot-filled.pngDot-filled.pngDot-filled.pngDot-filled.png or specifically appropriate New Jersey/New York-area organized crime Contacts or IC background:
Despite his attempts to shelter her, Amalia wasn't entirely clueless about her dad's source of wealth, and after he was killed she knew exactly what she had to do: consolidate what she could and get the hell out of town. Her father's death created a bit of a power vacuum -- he did provide a valuable service, after all -- and as one group took retribution against his killers, and their allies took retribution against them, and so on... she got in touch with various 'uncles' who helped her minimize herself as a target. She divested herself of most of her inheritance, redistributed the wealth among her father's allies and various legitimate interests, and booked a one-way flight to the opposite end of the country. So far she's continued to lay low, and there's no word as to whether she's going to stay that way, or if she's going to start putting those skills to use at some point.
