    ---------------------
    RP paragraph: (At least 5 sentences of how you would RP. Can range from a daily activity to a fictional event. Be creative!)

    August 28th, 1994. In the city of Airstrip 1, US Deputy Marshal Stephen S. Pearson is walking the city streets along 7th avenue. The street is lined with small, broken run-down apartment buildings full of murderers, drug dealers, criminals, and the low-life scum of the beautiful city. Stephen was tasked with entering the brown, small building to the right side of the sidewalk from a local pub called "Brazzers steakhouse and beer". As Stephen crossed the street alone in his USMS uniform, he approached the building with caution as his task was to apprehend a possibly armed fugitive hiding in one of the rooms. Stephen made his way into the building from a back entrance 5 meters back from the sidewalk on the dark gleaming evening light. In front of him when he entered was the back of a small, white stairwell leading up to 4 rooms per level. There were about 4 levels to the building. Moving upstairs with his firearm raised and radio silenced to cover his approach, Stephen located the designated room. In front of him lay a wooden door, closed and marked "205". 205 was his designated room with the possible armed character. Stephen looked down, faith in his badge, and kicked the wooden door near it's handle. The door broke and collapsed inward the room. Stephen then followed the door and seen his suspect aiming a UZI sub-machine gun in his direction looking meaner than a snarling bulldog. Stephen stunned his gun, and called in the scene- as that was his only choice.

    Hello, AttorneyAdmiral! I'll be evaluating your app today in order to assure a smooth transition into the world of The Beyond. Unfortunately, there are a few discrepancies regarding your character. Some are small and can be managed in seconds while others are a bit more heavy. Let's go in order.

    1. Your Weakness.
    In TB, the term "Weakness" is applied to an element of your person that could cause trouble for you in one or many ways. A chink in the armour. Such as an Ice user being weak to Fire or a Phoenix Paradigm being weak to Lightning. Characters normally have about two weaknesses or more so I'd suggest sticking to that.

    2. Special Abilities. Your abilities are very basic and simple, yet capable enough to get the job done. I respect that! In battle, simplicity is best. However, your descriptions of your capabilities are rather vague. You list off items and such, but that isn't necessarily how accurate we need a portrayal.

    "Stephen's abilities include being able to uphold federal law enforcement as a US Marshal, use his duty belt tools such as a firearm, taser, pepper spray to fatigue hostiles, and handcuffs to detain subjects for safety."

    Firearm:
    What kind? Is it special tech? Normal? What model of fire arm?

    Taser: What kind? A hand-grip taser? A projectile-based? What charge? Can it down a man, or perhaps powerful enough to disable a large animal such as a bear? How many times can it be used?

    Pepper spray: Normal pepper spray one could purchase anywhere? or perhaps a stronger, Xastristan military standard that can be shot in a cloud like incendiary detonations? Or anything that makes it special?

    Handcuffs: Typical, standard police handcuffs meant for detaining an average-sized human? Or cuffs that can fit various limbs, or perhaps stifle magic or transformations? Anything special? And details onto those as well in regards to limits.

    It may seem like a lot, but each of these really only require a few extra words. These details are, however, very necessary.

    3. Fears. In Fears, you state: "Stephen also fears of dying, as he has a family to go home to alive every evening."

    However, in the Family section, you state the following.

    Parents: (Can be deceased or unknown.)
    Seth Stephens, father, deceased. Unknown mother. (presently)
    Mate: (N/A, if you don't have one.)
    N/A
    Offspring: (N/A, if you don't have any.)
    N/A
    Relative: (N/A, if you don't have any.)
    N/A
    Brothers/sisters: (N/A, if you don't have any.)
    N/A

    You say you have a family to go home to, but then state you have no family! It's a small detail, but something worth fixing.

    4. Concept. Your entire character's concept is in fact, not applicable to TB. Namely because the United States of America is not something that is a part of TB! The Beyond is set in its own time and existence. The good ol' U. S. of A doesn't exist! Therefore, your character's general concept does not exist either.


    With these things in mind, I will be placing this application: On Hold

    Until these issues are addressed. Once everything has been all fixed up, bump the topic and I'll take a second look!
