Whoa, this is based off Binary Domain right? I love that game! I'll see about making a CS when I have time.
In the midpoint of the 21st century, Tokyo is a changed city. Global warming has flooded the old city, turning it into a damp-ridden watery slum. On top of the ruins, a gleaming new city has been built upon the ruins. This has only been possible with the recent advances in cybernetics and robotics, and the influx of refugees from the climate-changed and war-torn Eurasian mainland. However, this has lead to serious tensions with the pro-human and isolation lobbies, both of which wield significant political power.
In between these two are the the Runners, who carry confidential messages and packages around the city covertly, and the special government sections 9 (counter-terrorism), 10 (dealing with violations of the Geneva Code, which concerns illegal advances in robotics and artificial intelligence), and 11 (established to deal with issues in the lower city, such as the black market and organised crime.) Even these groups are prone to friction and squabbles between them.
Character sheets: (you can have as many characters as you think you can make distinct and keep going)
Appearance: (pictures, including anime-style, are fine)
Faction: (for or against robotics and cybernetics, or immigration and isolationism, and if they work as a runner or in one of the sections. You could be in multiple ones, or none at all, as long as it makes sense)
Special equipment: (anything they own that an ordinary person wouldn't, what it does, and how it works)
Robotics: (how much prosthetics the character has, ranging from a brain chip to only being a cyberbrain in a full prosthetic body, and if they're an undisguised robot, Hollow Child [which are robots covered in a layer of human cells to be disguised], or a hybrid [the offspring of humans and Hollow Children - fully human, but better])
Appearance: Black straight hair, cut short, that he tries in vain to keep flat. Green eyes, from his mother's side of the family, that have a tendancy to dart around, or close when he laughs. They're usually hidden by his ARglasses, though, when on duty. Ken usually wears his police uniform, which consists of a blue polo shirt and white shirt underneath partially concealing a light bulletproof vest, and navy trousers. When off-duty, he typically wears jeans, a green t-shirt, and if it's cold a black fleece.
Personality: Ken, with a childhood filled by manga, is an idealistic optimist. He's eager to do good and help people, which is the main reason he became a police officer. Ken gets on well with people usually, and has a sense of humour that most often shows up in his puns. He tries to balance his calm self-confidence and his modesty.
History: Ken grew up reading, and loves his books and manga. He initially planned on being a scientist, and even got a degree in Physics, but with the main focus in research nowadays on robotics, he instead got a job where he could help people in a different way, and joined the Japanese police force. Here, he spent his first year mostly as a desk cop, doing paperwork and patrols of quiet areas, although he managed to distinguish himself when he chased down and caught a runner transporting narcotics via a shortcut through one of the areas he patrolled. His friendly, unintimidating manner and calm nature got him mentioned to Section 11. He now reports to them, instead, although his activities haven't changed much other than trsnsferring to the main immigrant quaters.
Faction: Section 11. Ken is supportive of advances in robotics and cybernetics, and sympathetic to immigrants. However, he isn't passionate enough about these issues to distract from his job.
Skills: Ken is familiar with the weaponry of a modern police officer, ranging from non- and semi-lethals such as the tonfa and riot shield, through to more powerful weaponry such as the standard-issue high-accuracy 10mm pistol of the police, and the revolver, typically with AP rounds, popular for dealing with robots and augmented people. However, he only carries them as the situation demands - unless he's going into a particularly rough area, he won't bring anything but his tonfa on the everyday rounds. He is also trained in Aikido, a martial art.
Special equipment: Ken has ARglasses that can provide a range of information, such as overlaying a map or providing translation. They also provide some limited protection from the blinding aspect of flashbangs, and allow communication to the station.
The revolver uses AP rounds, and the high caliber makes it effective at dealing with robots. It's overkill, however, against normal people, and the small clip and slow rate of fire mean it's poor in a firefight.
Robotics: Ken has an "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" attitude to prosthetics - they might be cool, but he sees no point in getting some unless he needs it.
Are there any questions?

That's right, but also with aspects of Mirror's Edge, Deus Ex and Ghost in the Shell, too. I'm glad you like the sound of it.
Oh, I'm thinking about making a Dutch anti terrorism dude
That sounds pretty cool, I look fotward to seeing your character!
Can I make an artificial AI in hiding?

Also... around how many people are you going to let join? Honestly I prefer small groups with the same agenda as opposed to a group or 8 or 9 clusterfudge
Name: Lev Sokolev
Nationality: Russian-Japanese (dual nationality)
Appearance: Just above average height and well muscled at 5'9". He has pale blue eyes and short blonde hair. He usually sports a long,grey,ribbed coat with the sleeves rolled up and baggy black trousers streaked with grime. His skin is pale and he looks permanently worn out and faded
Personality: Friendly on the outside has no known close friends. He's an opportunistic gambler who enjoys the unexpected. However many people have never seen this side of him and thus find him quite forgettable.
History: A complete unknown to most people, he seems to have just appeared at one point with no one noticing. Lev was originally a Russian spy in Tokyo, however the Russian government suddenly lost contact and track of him completely. Lev, becoming increasingly reluctant to return to his homeland went to the Japanese government. He offered them information and foreign machinery in return for protection and a job. The Japanese took up this offer and promptly gave him a job working for them in Section 11. The job's pay is good enough as well since they don't want him going rogue on them.
Faction: Section 11, he sees no problem with robotics and cybernetics.
Profession: Section 11 runner.
Skills: Very good physical fitness and is more than adept at armed and unarmed combat due to his special services training. His skills have been honed over years doing his job. He has a good knowledge of the combat protocols used in recent years and uses this to help deal with hostile AIs.
Special Equipment: A Russian-made hold-out pistol, which he has only used twice so far in Tokyo. It has good stopping power but not much else. He also possesses a lot of high security data storage device which contains a lot of Russian cybernetics intelligence.
Robotics: None, his paranoia means he doesn't like having robotics used on himself.
If there are any problems please message me and I'll fix them right up! This RP sounds amazing.

6" 4 is weeeell above average height, heh. Especially in Japan.
Name: Dolf Noordzij, the Dutchman
Personality: Dolf is a straightforward man with a strong sense of discipline. The only thing he cares more about than his work is himself. He doesn't like being bribed, but he doesn't dislike it either. He sees killing people as a necessary evil to survive.
History: With the flooding by global warming a lot of countries in Europe got into trouble. They had relied on dams for all eternity, these dams kept the water away from the land and produced electricity. When the dams broke and the water turned into a tidal wave, drowning all and everything behind the dams, the former Netherlands became almost completely covered in water. Most people had already gotten to higher ground like the Ardennes and the Eifel. A large part of the European peace keeping force became unemployed and resorted to piracy or mercenary work.
Following the unrest of flooding and the unrest that came with it the different sections of the government had to deal with their shortage in personnel. Especially trained personnel was expensive and not easy to come by. Tokyo started importing assets from foreign countries. The mercenaries that were working in Eurasia were attracted by the work in Tokyo so they went there. Dolf was one of these mercenaries. The man started out as soldier, after an honourable discharge he worked as police officer. He was flown into Tokyo by its government and now works as an insurgency specialist, because of his military background.
Faction: section 9's insurgency team, previously affiliated with section 11's riot team
Profession: Captain of a tactical squad
Skills: Standard police combat training including the use of firearms, extensive anti-riot training, close combat training, tactical training. Section 9 specialized anti-terrorism training, including use of fire arms in close quarters.
Special equipment: target assisting helmet with flash bang suppression, the helmet is wired to the aiming chip in Dolf's brain and to his robotic arms giving him advanced aiming capabilities.
Robotics: Dolf's implants are simple but effective, his limbs are completely replaced by proteases. Giving his legs more power and stability and his arms a more effective means of aiming as well as more power. He also has a brain chip that gives him faster reactions.
Want to keep his pas a little secretive, if thatís okay with you?

Name: The Vigilante, Formerly First Lieutenant John Renald Lewis.
Gender:Male, or whatever male is in a prosthetic body.
Appearance: John stands at 5 feet tall and wears one olive drab trench coat, and underneath he wears a dark green hoody with draw strings drawn tight which conceals nearly his whole form. He appears outwardly human. With short brown hair and dark green eyes surrounded by gaunt cheekbones as well as flawless red/tan skin. His expressions are usually blank, his head has very little emotional depth to it, though it's hard to tell if his face is just an older model incapable of complex expression or if his expression is purposefully blank.
Personality: John is stoic and incredibly calm, though he is susceptible to bouts of intense rage at things he deems repulsive. John does all his calculations for shooting in his /head/ and actually enjoys all of it, though his precision could be driven by his cybernetic brain and prosthetic body, John relies on most of his old experience and flesh and blood teachings. John is morally inclined, seeing the majority of the human and robotic world as sick and twisted he believes himself to be the only one left who is fighting towards the better good of humanity and decency the rest he considers to be, "fighting for their own selfish gains and desires."
History: John was born in Finland, and served in the regular military, then the special forces as a talented sniper, though eventually his intense drive for justice and his morally estranged personality forced him to leave the military after a long and distinguished career. Eventually John became the victim of a typical street crime (a mugging) which he himself turned violent, beating the attacker to death. Eventually seeing that the future would favor those in both Prosthetic bodies and cybernetic brains John went through the conversion as he saw it as an increase towards his fighting prowess, illegally having an internal rifle holster integrated into his upper left leg, and a concealed .45 acp pistol implanted below his hand in his right wrist. This man or former man went on to become "The Vigilante" a ruthless criminal killing machine, using his military sniper's rifle and his former military skill he has become the scourge of the wicked and evil, killing men and woman of either faction indiscriminately. He is currently hunted by the authorities and criminals alike.
Faction: No feelings towards any form of politics, just an intense drive (Maybe a glitch?) towards enforcing justice, legal or not.
Skills: Immense military reconnaissance experience,military urban and rural sniper training.
Special equipment: Rifle holster integrated into left upper leg, .45 ACP pistol in right lower wrist.
Robotics: CyberBrain and full prosthetic body.
