ALONE TOGETHER RP TOPIC
As the world once thrived with over seven billion people across the globe, that number has drastically dropped to a mere twenty-five million people worldwide. The world as we once knew it now lies in shambles and everywhere you go, every city looks the same. They are run-down and broken, looking more like ruins than the magnificent metropolises they once were. Moss, shrubs, dirt, and dust gather all over the cities, states, countries, and continents of the world.
As one of the last few survivors of the world, you are trying to survive and to be able to live and prosper. Trying to find a new way of life is hard, especially with the savages living throughout the land too. The reasoning behind the drastic drop in the population is that people have died off due to a sickness. It came as a vaccine that was meant to help turn the sick into the healthy, but instead it was turning the sick even sicker, and soon enough they died and withered away. There are some of the people who have not been infected with the sickness, but some have become crazed and dangerous with no real government and policies in tact they rage across cities causing chaos and havoc. They have destroyed homes, groups of people trying to thrive so they could live strongly on their own. Those bandits rage throughout the world doing whatever they want, living as they please.
It has been four years since the first sign of the virus, life has changed in such a short amount of time. How will you act in this world? How far will you go to keep on living?

NAME: Abraham Carmine
NICKNAME: Abram or Abe
OCCUPATION: Med Student/Office Assistant
APPEARANCE: Abram is five-ten with a defined, muscle-toned body. He was an athlete all through high-school and through his undergrad years in college. It wasn't until he started graduate school that he stopped playing sports. Abe has a head full of golden-brown hair, which is long and boyish. His hair stands in front, with a cow-lick being the main focal point for his hair.
The med student also has a pair of sharp, cool grey-blue eyes and a chiseled jawline. He is still a handsome looking man, even for being deprived of first-world luxuries.
PERSONALITY: Abram is a sweet, kindhearted man. He's gentle to a fault, even though he's got such a big strong physique. He has a strong sense of just and is extremely supportive and trustworthy, a genuinely good, dependable friend. The downfall of Abe is that even though he believes in his friends so highly he lacks confidence in himself. He doubts everything he does and is very wishy-washy, wanting to be a more defined and confident leader.
HISTORY: Before the infection Abe was your typical jock turned doctor. He followed the path his father laid before him and went on playing sports and entering medical school. The young man was going to be a doctor, a dream his father had set in stone for the both of them. Abram obediently followed, never questioning or diverting from the path. It wasn't until the infection that Abram felt lost. He couldn't save his family from the sickness, so what good was he as a doctor?
With his family gone, especially his father, the med student had no path to follow. He was on his own, and he did whatever he could to live. Traveling, leaving his hometown, he left to find another life or rather to live life. On the road he met a few stragglers just like him. They were kind, some strange, but kind nonetheless. They were unlike the other humans who turned into savages that plagued the world.
