|They said this was a city for our kind, they said it was a safe haven from the rest of the world. This was suppose to be the city where we where safe from regular humans. But, in a city where Meta-Humans run rampant, is there such thing as safety? When taking what you want is as simple as waving your hand, or closing your eyes, how can there be law? In this city, the truth is there is only one source of law, and that are the different criminal organizations that have formed all around us. The only order is that of the darkest part of humanity, of criminal organizations where the strong thrive while the weak gasp for air. This is Niwa Nights.. This is our home. |
Can you survive it?

Lys does two things for the police. First of all, he's a crime scene photographer. He uses a really nice camera for this, and blood hardly bothers him at all. Secondly, he is also a sketch artist. He doesn't use that crappy computer program where you input generic facial features to create a face. Lysander still does the sketches "old school" giving him a better result.
Suburbia. To be more specific, he lives at 1067 Ahrima Road.
Lysander isn't what you would call a "macho man." While he does take pride in taking care of his body, he never goes overboard. He stands at an even 6 feet and weighs a tiny bit more than "normal", because who doesn't like food? He is slightly tan, being from Italian decent. The only absurd thing about his appearance happens to be his eyes-- they are an amber color. Other than that, he dyes his hair red and keeps it long, though always tied back. Lys' left ear is pierced twice, though he mostly wears hoops in the holes.
This crazy boy likes to think of himself as stylish. He mostly wears skinny jeans and cardigans to work, as well as necklaces and leather bracelets. Hey, it's what's in this season. No matter what though, he keeps to his green high-top converse. They're sort of his trademark.
A little goofy, a little funny, but totally sweet. The only thing that doesn't make Lys perfect is his tendency to get in trouble. He seems to have that brain-to-mouth filter problem that so many young people suffer from. He's not afraid to get into someone's face and has even been in a few tumbles at some bars he likes to frequent. In spite of this, he's managed to keep his job, no one knows exactly why.
Lysander isn't your typical gay man. He doesn't have a lisp and he doesn't flail and act girly (unless there's a spider, which he's afraid of). He's a normal dude, who just happens to like other normal dudes. He's also lazy as fuck. If he doesn't want to do something, you better believe he will try everything to slip out of it. And if he doesn't like something about a situation he's in, he'll bolt right out of there. He doesn't stay in one place for too long unless there's something there worth staying for.
Born in the US to your average middle class family, Lysander grew up with high expectations looming over his head. But when he didn't get into an Ivy League school, his parents' hopes were crushed. Instead of doing anything insanely awesome like they hoped he would, he went off to community college to study photography. If that didn't enrage them enough, he came out of the closet during the spring semester of his freshman year. Needless to say, he stopped living with them around that point in his life too.
His parents eventually came around. After all, he had a younger sister who they could force their expectations on now, and he was free to live his life. She didn't seem to mind it too much either. After that year, he got interested in Crime Scene Investigations after taking a forensics class. The teacher liked his work so much that he got an internship at the local police station. Lysander, unfortunately, didn't want to stay there for long, and set his mind on something better. He began taking language classes and decided to travel the world.
The redhead was lucky that his family was from old money, and he happened to have a deceased aunt that loved him more than the other kids in the family. He got a hundred thousand dollars from her. After taxes, he had enough to do whatever he wanted. After being to almost every country in Europe, he wound up in Japan and fell in love with the place. It's only been a few months, and he's fallen in love with Niwa specifically. In spite of her flaws, she's a beautiful city. Besides, the Police Department was looking for a guy just like him, so why not stay a while?
Lysander can always tell when someone is lying. He doesn't know how to explain it, ESP or intuition or whatever, but he's always been able to do it. Because of this, he's a very good liar. He's not perfect, because you can never hide the tiniest things your body might due to give you away, but he's gotten away with some big ones in the past. It's not the lying that is his power, but the lie detector part.
He doesn't like to advertise this skill, however. If the wrong people found out he knew the truth about everything, he probably wouldn't be breathing anymore. And if the police found out, he would be their new lie detector.
--acoustic guitar (he's a phenomenal player)
--pocket watch with his little sister's picture inside it
--zippo lighter (specifically to look cool)
--old beat up wallet
--green high-top converse
--drawing pad and nice pencils
Lysander is just a cool guy who likes to chill.
All he needed was one book, a single book, that he had been looking for for a whole year. It was supposed to be in this bookstore, but when did anything ever work out for him like that? Lysander sighed, turning down yet another aisle, desperate to find the book he needed. His hands in his pockets, he observed a young blonde boy on a step-stool, trying to take some books down off the highest shelf. It was adorable how hard he was trying to reach, on his tip-toes and everything. Lys wanted to chuckle, but he didn't want to be rude, so he turned away from the guy and continued looking.
Though, not before checking him out a bit.
Probably the first thing that caught his eye were the green converse on his feet. Dark eyebrows rose at the coincidence of that, because Lys had the exact same style and color shoe on his own two feet. This was too good to be true, he had to speak to him. But as he opened his mouth, the blonde lost his footing and came crashing down on top of the innocent customer. Luckily for the both of them, Lysander was pretty strong, and managed to balance the blonde's weight and his own at the same time.
As he fell back with the young man in his arms, the guy hit his head on a shelf beside him and was completely knocked out. Great. The redhead would probably be blamed for that. Though saving a damsel in distress was always something he wanted to cross off his bucket list.
Promising to the Oath:
I'm not making another oath. You already have three from me, if you're not convinced at this point that I mean the board no harm then I don't know what to tells ya XD

Approved, have fun with the NCPD!
About the only time losing is more fun than winning is when you're fighting temptation.
