" The Angel stands among a pile of flayed and destroyed bodies. They're small, or what's left of them anyway. The parts twitch as the creature sings, a macabre dance to accompany the shrieking song. The Angel sings. Sings of the time the Stormwall will fall. Of the time that Grandmother and her children will walk the Earth, devouring all Spirits and Specters that cross her path. Sings of the time the great Necropolis of Seattle will be nothing more than a pile of bones among blood drenched streets. It sings of the End Times, equal parts a warning and a threat. Sounds like you've got work to do. Make sure your will is in order, and you have one last dinner with your mother. Pick out your coffins and your flower arrangement's, 'cause we're Flat-lining you, sending you on a journey straight to Oblivion. Welcome to Orpheus, and remember... Don't look back. "
Anyway, that's a snippet from the idea I've been tossing around for a few months now. As to what it's about, it's fairly straight forward. Orpheus is a leading company in cryogenics research and development. It's also one of three company's that actively work in the spirit trade, having agents who can become spirits on command. Your character would be a part of this group ; either a regular human who's survived more then one brush with death ( an NDE for future reference ) or an actual spirit who refuses to drift away into nothingness. You'd be doing a mix of wet and ecto work, meaning your the poor schmuck who gets called in to banish angry ghost and kill the rouge ones. I think the plot is fairly apparent, and is fairly malleable to new ideas or suggestions as well. I'm all ears for a good idea after all.
So, what do you say? Care to take a ride straight down to Oblivion?

Could possibly be interested if I saw a brief explanation of what a CS would need... or maybe a bit more detail regarding the spirits
But... could be interested, or persuaded to be interested XD

Fair enough. Let's see...spirits are, in essence,a reflection of who or what you are. They're a blend of your personality, your dreams, your hopes, your demons and your failures all held together by a thin spectral gauze. Most spirits aren't intelligent, and can only relive or remake whatever brought them to their current state. Orpheus deals with living spirits, meaning a spirit that knows it's dead and knows what's keeping it here. Likewise, an agent becomes a living spirit every time they flat-line, becoming a mix of base elements. A control freak who can't let anyone under him do there job alone becomes gifted in the art of body surfing and becomes a Skin-Rider, a spirit obsessed with order and control for example. That's a fairly basic summery of what a spirit is, and what an agent becomes every time he goes under.
