    As a result of the Holy See's growing influence in U.S. politics, the nation began seeing a large influx of prisoners. With more and more people being locked up for opposing the church's influence or even "moral" crimes, cities rushed to find the space to put them all. With space as a luxury, New York City started retrofitting abandoned and foreclosed buildings, lining them with the most expensive security technology and the cruelest of guards. Cameras watching every corner, high-tech gates, and a state-of-the-art emergency generator system, no expense was spared to lock up the "worst" of humanity.

    Where the New York Department of Correction splurged in security, they ignored safety standards. The prisons quickly gained the nickname of "pen-in-a-box," referencing the facility's incredibly tight spaces, mixed gender housing, and overpopulation. Violence, gangs, and riots were common place, and it was all happening just next door.

    Forgotten in the madness of the rising dead, one can only imagine how these prisons fared during the outbreak. Perhaps they might be one of the safest places to keep the undead out, or maybe they are the only thing holding back an endless horde of orange jumpsuit clad monsters. The doors have been locked tight, and the radio waves have been silent. Nothing in, nothing out.












    "This is a repeating distress call. This is the staff of the Lissandra Harlow Correctional Facility. We are trapped, and the prisoners are in control. They have our food and medicine. Please, send help."


    Date: October 12th, 2018
    Time: 6:00 PM EST/11:00 PM GMT
    I welcome everyone to join on Friday as we take a peek into what lies behind the gated doors of the Lissandra Harlow Correctional Facility. I am keeping the actual details of the event to a minimum as to not spoil anything, but there is a ton of content planned for anyone who wishes to be involved. I welcome any playergroups to message me to coordinate their involvement in the event, as it is open to anyone who wishes to answer the call. Otherwise, you are free to take part in the event as either a correctional officer, or as one of the prisoners.

    This event will be taking place on the server on our usual map, so space is limited, and I would like to make sure that everyone who wants to get involved has the opportunity to do so. If you would like to play as a prisoner or one of the guards, please post their character name, and a short paragraph about their history leading up to their work as a correctional officer, or the crimes that led them to becoming a prisoner. I will brief both of these factions on the events leading up to their involvement on the server on the day of the event.

    If it wasn't clear, either of the options for characters have room to be permanent so if you're stuck for ideas this might serve you well as an entrance. This event is also for any and all of the TKed characters sent to prison pre-outbreak.

    I'm down to assist in this as one of the guards given how unlikely it is my 'survivor' character would go anywhere near a prison with likely armed prisoners and or guards.

    Name: Jaster Ezan.
    Some background: A by now 35 year old male belonging to the religious 'Ezan' household, a long lasting family line of religious police men and women that over time could have almost been considered 'fanatical' in some of their aspects. Jaster was no different in his religious believes, yet believed there was more 'correcting', 'saving' to be done within a different line of work. A different form of enforcing the law of the States and in his mind 'god'. An outlook that was anything but well received by the rest of the family who believed the people on the streets that were 'wrong' had to be put away.

    Give or take several years on the job, a failed marriage later and Jaster can by all means now be considered a very bitter, less than 'kind' correctional officer. Less so believing that the inmates could be 'corrected' and fully in line with the idea that they should never see the outside world again.

    (Kept it basic as I could given the nature of things.)
    (If Biters are required I can assist on that end at some point as well)

    I wanted to make a new character anyways so this will probably help.
    Name: Choi Chae-Won/Chloe Choi
    Background: Chloe is a late-teens/early-twenties Korean/American former student. Daughter of a 2nd generation Korean immigrant and an American businessman. Her family wasn't filthy rich or influential, but they could be described as well off. Formerly a NYU student majoring in Photography and Art, she was involved in a controversy at the University for "Anti-Theological views" that were expressed in her artwork.

    Due to these views being expressed, the Church and their government collaborators dug into her file and personal life, eventually finding enough evidence to convict her of the transport and distribution of contraband materials, which were found to be products of succub.us as well as anti-governmental propaganda. She was arrested several months before the outbreak. Her trial process was speed up by the assistance of, and pressure from, the Holy See. She was convicted and sent to the Lissandra Harlow Correctional Facility.

    Name: Matthew Evans
    Description: Exhausted looking Male, Wears a bulky Riot suit with a riot helmet covering his face
    Background: Matthew Evans is a generic American guy around his mid twenties. The Evans household has been living outside the city for years inside a small hometown. His father and Uncle were both sheriffs at the local police department. Matthew dreamed to follow the path of his Father until one day a tragedy happened.

    His father died in a car chase. His Father was following a convict that broke out of jail. The Convict stepped out his car and shot Matthew's father several times with a m1911. Matthew was broken "How could a convict escape that easily?" Matthew decided to not go into the general law enforcement but sign up as a guard at a correctional facility. He has been here for a couple of years made some friends and met his current wife. His own anger against criminals has risen. In his eyes they are all monsters stuck behind bars so they can suffer.. from him.

    Name: Thomas Watts

    Backstory: Thomas Watts is a forty four year old ex-member of the Marine Corps who is serving time at the Lissandra Harlow Correctional Facility. He was born into an abusive household at a young age before running off to join the Corps, serving in the conflicts of the 90s such as the Gulf War. During his service he would find himself on a dependency of prescription drugs, leading him to often steal from the medical bay and corpsmen. After being caught, he was dishonorably discharged from the Marines and cast out. Eventually Watts spiraled into a depression, struggling to make a living and find decent employment, leading to him becoming an alcoholic as he tried to ease his woes. Having been a stout supporter of the constitution, he was always bitter with the government when they overhauled the constitution, which included the revoking of the second amendment. Combined with his alcoholic tendencies and issues with anger, he conspired to commit domestic terrorism against the state years after his discharge, seeing a large amount of corruption from both government figures and religious groups such as the Holy See having influence in areas. He was arrested for releasing a series of nail bombs into a crowd of See followers and NYPD officers during a religious rally, resulting in a number of deaths and injuries. He was given life in prison without parole, and was expected to live out the rest of his days in prison. Until the dead started getting up and attacking the living that is...

    Figured I'd give a bit of depth and stuff to the character. Hopefully it's good enough! Apologies if there are some details that don't make sense, feedback is welcome.​

    Dossier: McDonald, Kaitlin

    "24 year old, locked up for attempted bank robbery in June, 2018, the motives being that she needed funds for her significant other's(name not disclosed) medical bills. Currently resides in Lissandra Harlow Correctional Facility, having been there since June of this year. She spent most of her life in Greenpoint, growing up in a working class Irish-American family, and she's got little track record before the robbery. Whoever her sweetheart is, they're pretty important to her, because this chick turned from speeding and drug possession to robbing banks overnight. She'll be behind bars for a long time. The people in there are more likely to kill her than anything else."

    Jason Biggs, shortly after his graduation from the academy.

    Physical description: A twenty something year old man of African-American descent with the demeanour that can best be compared to the demeanour of a lazy pigeon.


    Backstory: Born into a struggling family in 1994, Jason had to illegally take up work from the age of fifteen just to ensure that his family could pay rent and buy food for the upcoming weeks. Despite their tough situation, Jason’s family loved each other deeply, which made him adopt strong familial beliefs and values. While his parents were religious, and attended church sermons every Sunday, Jason never really adopted those views, and remained agnostic his entire life.


    He joined the Correctional officer force in 2012 after finishing High School and began working in the Lissandra Harlow Correctional Facility later that year after finishing his training. Despite the fact many of his colleagues saw the inmates as nothing more than animals that do not deserve to see the light of day, Jason, somewhat foolishly believed that all of them had a chance to turn their life around. This caused him to let prisoners get away with a verbal warning for things other officers would punish with a beating and overall just sympathize with them rather than hate them.

    Bodhi began his law enforcement career after police academy taking up a mediocre position in the NYPD. During his time he was considered quite the funny cop but never felt able to live up to his fathers reputation as a detective within the force. As he started to progress in his career an injury when he responded to robbery led to him being discharge by the force, despite he was still determine to stay in law enforcement and so took up a place at the local correctional facility. It is rumoured that the robber that got him discharged is imprisoned there.

    Solomon with fellow crop union members, Georgia, two weeks before his disappearance from the public eye after rumors he was to run for senate in the next election. A cooperative effort from both Holy See klansmen and the FBI result in his discrete capture and secretive imprisonment at Rikers Island, silencing him.

    Miguel Ángel Flores

    Miguel Ángel Flores was born on March 12, 1980. His mother, Lorina Flores, had over 34 arrests while prostituting, many of which were drug related. His father, Robert Akins, was absent for all of his life due to incarceration for a felony gun charge. Miguel was in danger, according to child welfare authorities, severely mistreated and neglected. Before he was 3, Miguel was already known to Department of Children and Famlily Services(DCFS). Needless to say he had a rough childhood, he was known for bullying and stealing money from children in the streets of NY City. Growing up alone made him a grade-A criminal, 23 felonies and 5 misdemeanors and counting were committed in the course of running errands for mexican street gangs. On August 28, 1999, Miguel was ordered to carry out a hit for his gang. He opened fire several times with a 9 millimeter semiautomatic pistol, striking several members of a rival gang. Miguel quickly fled the scene being caught by the police shortly after and was charged with attempted murder, possesion of unregistred firearm and gang affiliation.

    A New Yorker at Heart - Price, distraught at the state of his birthplace, devoted himself to a Career of Law enforcement. Although in most cases a hot-head, he swore to return the City - Now merely a shadow of its former self - to its prior glory. In no way a smart man, Price saw endurance as his strong suite, adopting a heavy-handed approach to Crime as per his fanatical Consequentialism. Any lawbreaker was scum, and he saw no reprisal in being the Judge, Jury and executioner. It was all justified, so as they were breaking the law, and nothing less than a little rough-and-tumble saw reform in his eyes.

    A strong arrogant blonde and New Yorks worst cadet at the police academy. He never got to start what could have been a very short and scandalous career as one of New Yorks newest police officers thanks to a little-known incident in April where Behler allegedly pushed another cadet into an open elevator shaft. Following a quick trial by a biased jury with make-believe facts, evidence, and testimony this surely innocent man was sent away to the fabulous LHCF awaiting sentencing during the outbreak after convictions of conspiracy to commit murder, murder in the 1st degree, conspiracy to defraud the US postal service, and jury intimidation.

    Name: Pastor Martin Paisley
    Backstory: A somewhat elderly Lutheran Pastor in a nation dominated by Catholicism, Martin Paisley has often found himself at odds with the Holy See's take on Christianity, and as a result has been in and out of various correctional facilities for it. When the outbreak hit, he found himself near the end of two and a half years for disturbing the peace, assault and blasphemy after a protest gone violent outside of Sunday mass.

    Name: Matila Ann
    Occupation: Correctional Nurse

    Matila is a half French, half English woman who works as a Correctional Nurse within the Jail. She is about 5.6ft tall, 131lb, 28 years old, tanned skin, brown hair, green eyes and wears nurse scrubs. She speaks with a slight french accent she picked up from her mother.

    Backstory: Matila was born to a middle class family in Maryland. When she was a young child her father was killed in Afghanistan and her mother never remarried. She had a large interest in Medical knowledge like her Nurse Mother, but also wanted to face some action like her Father. She decided against becoming a EMT or Paramedic only because the chance of her seeing someone die (which she is terrified of) would be much higher. So she decided to do something that had a little less risk, which happened to be becoming a Correctional Nurse. She then moved to New York and decided to work at IHCF where she settled in very well.

    Starting in 2 and a half hours. Will be one of the last events we do in the city for now, coupled with tomorrow nights power plant event. After that event ends tomorrow we'll be moving to a rural setting.

    This event is a great opportunity to introduce a new character if you've found it difficult to integrate one so far.

    Apologies for not posting it sooner. If there's still room, I'd like to make a char for the correctional officers.

    Name; Maverick De Koning
    Occupation: Correctional facility guard

    Backstory: At the age of 26, Maverick has a few years of prison guard experience under his belt - but not a lot. Originally, he served as a correctional facility guard in a high-security prison in Friesland, but soon left due to a deteriorating relationship with his family - he didn't talk to them, so it's mostly his fault. He needed to get away. Three years ago, he immigrated to america, and immediately got a job at the Lissandra Harlow Correctional Facility. And now, we are here.

    Huge congratulations to the staff team for co-ordinating and maintaining the event. Was incredibly fun to roleplay a prison guard, and to see how people who have been in prison for years react to seeing infected for the first time. The atmosphere was really great, too.
