Guardians of the Night

Postby Niky » Thu Sep 24, 2015 3:31 pm

Werewolves. Scourge of the full moon, terrifying beasts that maim and kill the innocent. As long as there have been werewolves, there have been those who would fight them, those who tried to make things safe for the rest of the wizarding world. They called themselves the Guardians of Night, and they've been around in some incarnation for quite some time now.

Operating out of London, most of the members have "regular jobs." Due to fear of retribution, membership is a closely guarded secret, and every member takes a magical oath not to reveal the names of other members. New members are brought in by invite only. The group's very existence is more rumor than fact, except in the MLE, where they have run into the Guardians (colloquially known as the Dogcatchers) on several occasions.

Because of werewolf bigotry, they have operated mostly freely, though that has been changing over the last couple of years as werewolves are becoming more accepted in polite society.

The group's hierarchy consists of the leader, known as the Chief, a right-hand person, known as the Keeper, and then the rest of the group, known as Hunters or Dogcatchers, or the more general Guardians. Only the Chief and the Keeper know the identities of everyone in the group, the rest of the Hunters generally only know the people that work with them in their immediate area. Though the group is based in London, they have people all over the world. Historically there has also been some infighting in the group, with people disagreeing about different ways of doing things, which has resulted in attempts to form splinter groups. Those attempts are generally unsuccessful, due to the sudden deaths/disappearances of their leaders. Weird. Still, there is political maneuvering and such within the group that can sometimes result in bloodshed/bad blood.

The Guardians don't train their Hunters - they only recruit people that have the necessary skills to become one of them, with some exceptions. If a Guardian feels that someone has potential, they may choose to train that person before submitting their name for consideration.

Without further ado, I'd like to request some guardians! The Chief and Keeper are up for adoption (FC and other details totally negotiable!), as well as a few Hunters, but if you have existing characters that you would like to make Guardians, let me know and they can be added as well. If you have an existing character that you think would make a good Chief or Keeper before the position is filled, let me know that too!

Liza Margrave Benjamin Bakersfield
Joaquin Vail Jace Archer Kailyn Vail Amina Akoro


Spoiler: Liza Margrave show
Reserved for Venox - 37 years old - Chief of the Guardians - FC Elizabeth Mitchell

Liza's father was a Guardian, her father's father was one, etc. The last Margrave to be Chief was her Great-Uncle Jefferson, and Liza modeled after him in many ways. Tough and somewhat cold, Liza never met a werewolf she didn't want to kill, regardless of whether or not they were taking wolfsbane and attempting to contribute to society. As far as she was concerned, that sort were worthless and an accident waiting to happen. She worked her way up in the ranks and is respected by many, though there are plenty that say she used family connections to get there. She has an uneasy relationship with her Keeper, whom she suspects of wanting her job without waiting for her to retire naturally.

Liza married in her twenties, but kept her own last name. She has one son, four years old, who generally stays at home with his father on the nights that Liza 'works.' By day she's a high level Ministry employee, with plenty of connections that she shamelessly uses to her advantage.


Spoiler: Benjamin Bakersfield show
Played by Liz - 32 years old - Keeper of the Guardians - FC Eric Winter

Ben was inducted into the Guardians by accident when he was twenty-two years old. His brother was a Hunter, and, ever curious, Ben followed him one night to see what he was up to. He was shocked by the bloody fight he saw - and he was almost werewolf prey, but his brother saved his life. Knowing that the Guardians dealt harshly with people who stumbled upon their secret, he took Ben under his wing and trained him himself before presenting him as a potential member. Family legacies being what they were among the group, Ben was accepted, and he turned out to be really good at the job. A seer, Ben's talent has come in handy often, helping to guide him into his position as Keeper. Being more liberal and easygoing than the Chief, the two often butt heads when issues of leadership arise, and Ben chafes under Liza's regime.

Ben was married for a couple of years, but the strain of keeping a secret like this from his wife was too much for him and they divorced with no children. By day, Ben also works at the Ministry, in the Magical Games department, having been something of a Quidditch phenom at Hogwarts. He might have played professionally, but he hadn't the focus for that sort of training.


Spoiler: Joaquin Vail show
Open - 24 years old - Hunter - FC Michael Buonomo

Joaquin never imagined that a world like the one he lives in now ever existed. He was a regular kid, along with his sister, who went to Hogwarts and studied and played Quidditch. Until the second war began and a werewolf attacked his family. His parents and his youngest sister were killed, while Joaquin and Kailyn escaped, seemingly unscathed. The Guardians approached Joaquin a year later, at the boxing ring where he took out his aggressions. He was happy to join - as long as they took Kailyn too. An older Guardian agreed to train them both, and in due course they became Hunters.

Joaquin, however, has a secret of his own - he's an unregistered werewolf himself. He takes wolfsbane religiously and loathes what he is. He's never told a soul, not even his sister, and he kills werewolves with unbridled glee every chance he gets. His brutally impresses some and dismays others, and his hatred of werewolves often clouds his judgement and causes some to consider him a loose cannon and dangerous.


Spoiler: Jace Archer show
Open - 24 years old - Hunter - FC Jonathan Groff

Jace is a legacy kid. He's not the greatest hunter, but his father got him in by trading favors. Most people don't think Jace will live to be thirty, with his playboy and party guy ways, but Jace can bring it when he puts his mind to it. He's not as serious about it as some people, though, considering it sort of a fun sideline to his real job at the Ministry.

Jace dates around, but never gets serious about anyone - so far. His mum keeps trying to set him up with 'nice girls' but that's really not his type. When he's not training or working, you can always find Jace at a bar or a sporting event, losing his parent's fortune a little at a time.


Spoiler: Kailyn Vail show
Played by Pytech - 22 years old - Hunter - FC Shay Mitchell

Kailyn has been terrified of werewolves ever since the night that her parents and little sister were murdered. She never would have gone along with Joaquin and joined the Guardians, except for the promise that she'd learn to protect herself. Unlike her brother, her goal isn't really to kill as many werewolves as possible, but to not feel helpless and terrified again. The first time she faced them was difficult, but it's gotten easier over time. Kailyn is fairly well liked and respected among the other Guardians, even at her young age.

By day she works at the St. Mungo's clinic as a healer-in-training, and that is the job she loves more, and it helps give her access to supplies to patch people up after the fighting.


Spoiler: Amina Akoro show
Played by Stefany - 29 years old - Hunter - FC Halle Berry

Amina's family came over from Nigeria when she was just a child, so that her father could take a position with the Ministry's Beastmasters. He was one of the foremost experts on the werewolf curse in the world, and he passed that knowledge on to Amina as she grew up. She never thought she'd use it in this context, and instead joined up with the Hitwizards. However, she was approached by a Guardian and she found that she liked the idea of using her knowledge to keep people safe. She has her own limits, and will not go after werewolves that take wolfsbane and try to integrate in society, instead focusing her energy on the ones that hurt people and cause trouble. She's very vocally against people like Joaquin, who hate all wolves.

At the Ministry, Amina is very good at her job, which she enjoys immensely. She's very dedicated and is the kind of person that will stay late and do extra without even being asked, and she has her eye on someday being Lead Hitwizard ... and maybe even higher up than that.
