(This is a reboot of my Cowboy Bebop themed RP. The name was really uninspiring -_-)
It's the year [Error: Data not found] and space travel is nigh perfected. Space ships are as common as...well...ships. Through the years humanity has made stations and even terraformed a few planets. One day, scientists developed a very special thing, a Mass Distant Interstellar Transporter or M.D.I.T. It's a large space station which is capable of transporting multiple space ships to another star system within days instead of years. A few systems had been discovered thanks to the M.D.I.T, the major ones being Orion Frontier and Primus and there is also Alpha, home to Earth and Mars. Due to the massive increase in human population, planets were inhabited and large space station constructed both on their own and also on asteroids and meteors. There is also another police force, Interstellar Police Force and their departments and stations take in bounties posted by all so a bounty posted in Orion can be turned in in Alpha if the bounty is not in Orion. Most of the individual planets have got their own independence so wars have waged in the past.
Following the major increase in population, crime increased with it and spread like wildfire through the systems and the individual planet police force constructed large stations housing their main military and police but their efforts can't take on everyone. Due to the massive crime rate, freelance bounty hunters and groups are just as common as the local crime boss. In fact, hunters are so common that a television program was dedicated just to keep hunters updated about bounties, new and old as well as commercializing merchandise. Even though the police would never believe it but bounty hunters keep criminals on edge and make the syndicates be more careful about their person. Though the most wisest of the crime gangs are careful not to get too noticed there are those that don't give a damn and think themselves untouchable. Time to prove those bastards wrong.
the technology of the time line is advance but cars and ballistic weapons are still in common use. Fuel has been changed from oil to BioFuel, synthetic replacement for the primitive oil and even friendlier to the environment. Holographic TVs are also around but in need of borders.
Cybernetics and human augmentation is as well very common but expensive as hell when it comes to enhancements. Simple replacements are more common than special augmentations. Some fighting pits even specialize in augmented fights.
Energy weapons are still in prototype state but most of the finished ones are designated for vehicles. Handheld energy weapons are rare and not so reliable.
Shadow Syndicate: Mostly treated like a myth but this syndicate has been responsible for many assassinations and disappearance of people from wealthy business men to infamous crime bosses. Rumors say that this syndicate has it's base of operations in Saxon and picks up kids from the streets that will become their agents of death.
ZebraDebras: The most infamous drug trafficing gang in Alpha. This gang is responsible for the drug Narko, a highly intoxicating drug that is has become the new heroin.
(Other gangs may come up and players, with my permission, may create one for plot and/or conflict for the OCs)
Earth: The biggest civilian planet in all the systems.
Mars: Not as populated as Earth. Houses more civilians.
Venus: Currently has very few civilian towns, mostly just housing factories. Still being terraformed so the environment us still unstable at places.
Pax: One of the few planets that had natural water and flora similar to earth's. It is mostly inhabited by farms and food production.
Saxon: The closest planet to the Orion sun but rich with minerals. Surface is too hot and violent for humans so the towns and bases are underground. Though being one of the major mineral sources, the towns are the most poor and inhospitable.
Laguna: The planet next to Pax, the entire surface covered in water. This is one of few planets that actually have alien life. None of them are sentient and are mostly fish and other similar creatures. Each town and city are floating above the surface and, by design, look like large lily pads from above.
(this system is still under construction and players, with my permission, may create planets and stations that inhabit the systems)
If this rp gets any longer then other systems may be added to it. Ideas for them are welcome as well for planets and stations
Notable Satellites and Stations
Happy-Go-Lucky: A casino satellite housing the biggest hotel casino in all the systems. People live there but the majority of them are workers from restaurants, casinos, hotels or shops.
I.P.F Central (Interstellar Police Force): A police satellite station orbiting mars. This is one of the stations where bounties can be turned in.
M.A.R.K.E.T. 1: Another large satellite that is one fo the biggest trading satellites in all the systems. It is also the home of many people and one can buy just about anything. The black market is also found there if knowing what to look for. It orbits Venus.
The Cerberus: An asteroid prison that is near Saxon. It's said to be the most secure prison humans have ever made. Prisoners are sometimes sent to Saxon for mining.
Players may ask to make other stations in designated systems. Pm first. I will not tolerate insubordination.
Appearance: (Facial Portrait, Body description. Pic accepted with text if needed. Anime is no problem)
Gender: (Not really needed if pic and name explains it all)
Appearance 2: (Clothing and such. Pic also accepted and good description. This can be skipped if the first appearance has what you want)
Weapon/s & Augmentation: (Pic accepted with a little description)
Personal Transportation: (SPACE SHIP 8D *drool* Pic preferred and a little description if needed)
Short Bio: (Optional though I preferred if you'd make one)
Choose either being a bounty hunter, gangmember with bounty on his head, law enforcer or a Government Agent. Gangs are described above the character sheet. PM me if you want to make your own gang and PM other players to be buddies or something like that. Normal civvies are ok as well but I doubt you'd be doing much then.
Augmentations will be limited. You can not have Robotic arms equipped with 3 gatling guns each and plasma eyes and a grenade launching member. Keep it tamed. OP-NESS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. Mostly have just 1-2 manned space ship but PM me if you want to own a carrier (A ship which smaller ships can dock on, like Bebop)
The character sheet can be set up any way you like.

Damien was born on Saxon where he stayed in the slums. He grew up an orphan until he got noticed by the Shadow Company. He was recruited into the Shadow Company and was taught the ways of the assassins. From them he learned Jeet Kune Do which he mastered by the time he was 15 due to the excessive training. He also learned piloting at operating other classes of ships. For years he was in their service until a time he had to assassinate a senator's daughter. He left the company and took with him intel and a ship. He took up bounty hunting instead since it wasn't that far from his previous life. During one of his hunts he took down a small gang that had taken a repair frigate. As a "reward" he confiscated the ship. He is currently one of the most wanted of Shadow Company's hit list. For extra security from them, he legally changed his name and forged a birth certificate as well as parents'.
