Jurassic Park IC
Who I am looking for
Welcome to my New Thread.
First and foremost I am excited to start this thread given I am a vivid Jurassic Park fan, and I really want to do a roleplay in dedication to one of the greatest works of Michael Crichton. I am looking for someone who wants to help me in doing this. I am looking for someone who knows Jurassic Park inside and out and can illiterate the story in certain aspects. I am not looking for someone who is perfected in Jurassic Park knowledge but I am looking for someone who can at least say they read the books and watched the movies because this Roleplay will be a mix of both worlds. An the most important aspect I am looking for in a roleplay partner is that they will see the story through until the end. If you find that you are a dedicated Roleplayer and want to join me on this adventure then all you need to do is two things. First I want you to answer a simple question, What is one favorite Part from the Movie Jurassic Park and what is one favorite part from the book Jurassic Park? This will be more or less a test to see if you have actually watched and read both the movie and book respectfully. Your answer can pertain to any of the movies or books. If the answer is satisfying enough to me I will allow you to make a Bio for your character. I only ask however that you don't google your answer, just give me your best answer. The last thing you should know is that I am looking for someone who can put detail into their posts, I am not big on perfect grammar given I can not do it myself but I am looking for someone who can advance the story, I will start it out but I would like for you to also get down and dirty and make the story with me, so no need for the back seat. For anyone who is reading this is interested but feels they may not know enough about Jurassic Park or lacks in ability to write large paragraphs I encourage you to try anyways. I am not strict and I am fun person who loves a good roleplay so you may find that Ill accept you anyways. So don't be shy.
Character & Plots
Onto what I am looking for in Characters.
Now there is several ways this can go given I am a very diverse roleplayer. First and foremost I do not mind what the gender of the character is in the least. I am also not one who cares about same gender relationships. The character I am looking for can be pretty much anything you want him or her to be. However I will be putting possible short plot lines for the characters below so read them before you decide on anything.
Plot 1: Both of our characters are siblings, preferably brothers, sisters, or a brother and a sister.
Plot 2: Our Characters are married, once again same sex is not big deal with me so its up to you.
Plot 3: We do not know each other, but both hunted on the island before and were hired to go together to get the job done. This plot has many different kind of tweeks that can be made. Such as we hate each other, or were attracted to each other, etc.
These are just simple plots that we can do if you find you have a plot then let me hear it and we could very well possibly go with your plot or a combination of both of our idea's. Just see where it goes. As for age because this will most likely come up, we are both going to be twenty five or older, the bio is we have been hunting long enough to be professional so this is a good round age cap to have.
Appearance: (Pic + Small description OR No pic with large description. No Anime please)
Weapons: (Nothing super huge, especially explosive, large game hunting rifles are more then acceptable and small arms as well)
History: (Why are you a big game hunter, your motivations, why did you accept to go to this island? Just a description that will give me a feel for your character.)
Other: (Anything that is not covered above.)
If you have and questions or would like to discuss possible plots or otherwise either PM or message me in this thread I always respond.

Roland at one point in his life was a rather outgoing and talkative man, he enjoyed sharing a drink with a couple friends and was very out there when it came to his passions. However his personality has changed now, while he remains a rather nice but serious individual, he is more secluded and tends not to talk to many people he does not know. He is always professional when he is hunting and prefers to work alone, he has a never die attitude and when pushed to the edge he has no problem punching you in the face. He believes in respect and he believes also that if you choose to desire respect from him then you have to earn respect not just have it given to you. At times he can come off as a bit of an ass hole, it comes from an old time mentality. While he is a strong willed individual he has developed a rather dark side to himself. All in all Roland takes time to know, but if you do crack his steel outer shell he is a compassionate and loyal friend to the end.
History: Roland Tembo II is a sixth Generation hunter, coming from a long prestigious line of Ivory Hunters he is among the youngest generation of his family and the last living heir to his family. His Father Roland Tembo was a famous Hunter himself known for being the best of all hunters. His father hunted on every continent in the world at least once and had the house full of trophys to prove it. Born in Mombasa Roland and his father often Hunted even when Roland was a young kid. Since the moment he could walk he was always away with his father on hunts all over the world. He learned everything a hunter could possibly learn. It was safe to say that Roland was a happy child, and he enjoyed his life with his father. But things changed.. his father never spoke about it or even told him why but after a trip to Costa Rica Rolands father had changed dramatically, and the worst part was that his Uncle Ajay Sidhu had passed away. The circumstances were mysterious even to young Roland. For years he never knew what happened to his father on that trip or what lead to Uncle Sidhu to die but Roland being smart knew it was something terrible. When Roland turned twenty one his father passed away shortly after, it was safe to say that Roland was crushed, and what made it worse was that his father had died never telling him what truly happened in Costa Rica it seemed it would have been a mystery for the rest of Roland's life. However Roland was surprised when his father left him his personal Journal, upon reading it Roland finally understood why his father had changed. Most of what he read he could not believe could actually be real, he had heard the rumors about the islands but his father would constantly disapprove of such rubbish. After that moment Roland knew what he was going to do, in honor of his father he would go to this Island an claim the trophy his father wished to obtain. However the account of what happened to Roland Tembo II was unknown, the man never spoke of it, never even appeared to remember it to others. But it was apparent that he had changed deep down inside. The only thing anyone really knew about the incident was Roland Tembo II strolled into a Costa Rican hospital with his left eye so badly gashed they had to remove it and replace it with a fake. Since then Tembo had honed his hunting skills and has continued on with his life in hunting, he had been to all seven continents within the last ten years hunting like his father and his fathers fathers before them. Roland became famous for his hunting and the superior techniques his father had taught him, he had improved upon them to become one of the youngest hunting legends in the world. This is how Roland Tembo was approached by a man who would not tell him his name or the company in which he worked for. But the man had and offer for Tembo and that he could not refuse it. The offer is only known to Roland Tembo II, but it was certain that it was good enough to get him to go back to the island he lost not only his Uncle to but his fathers happiness and his very eye itself. Roland was on the next plane out to Costa Rica within mere hours.
