Name: Edward Richard Bradbury
Age: 32
Date of Bir- Wait, why are you asking us for both an age and a DOB if we've already established it's set in "Modern Day" New York? ??? I guess you just mean birthday. Uh, okay. 7th of June.
Skills: Persuasion, Clubs, Investigation.
Traits: Police Pedigree, overly curious easily bored/distracted ((I might leave this up to you.))
Bio: Born into a family with a strong police tradition, Eddie is the son of the former Chief of the NYPD, who now lives a quiet life playing golf out in the country. Eddie, having seen his father's career (along with his mental health) crumble during a particularly trying series of cases, grew disillusioned with the idea of following him into the force.
Eddie was seventeen when his father retired, and promised himself he would never put himself through such an ordeal. Ed figured he could take up mechanics, or history, or maybe just sell used cars- anything but the police force.

Still, the pressure from his family to join the law enforcement was immense, and eventually Eddie decided to compromise, buying an office (with help from Dad, naturally) and going into business as a PI.
So far, he's performed unspectacularly, his few cases mainly pulled in by his father's status as an important citizen.
He has little patience for paperwork and buerocracy, despises the suspicious spouses who provide most of his work, and overall wishes he could do something else.

He is missing two fingers from his right hand after an unfortunate childhood incident with a lawnmower.

Cthulu and crazy shit like that will be the main theme of this story. By the way remember there is only one detective, so please vote for which character sheet will be used.

That's a good twist, run with it. But don't tell the readers who we are, except in cryptic hints that almost make sense.

Name: Jake Monroe
Age: Hard-boiled
Date of Birth: 31 Oct
Skills: Punching Mooks, Holding Liquor, Picking Locks
Traits: Notices fine details, Sucker for a pretty dame.
Bio: He left the army after a bad tour of service. He couldn't do it anymore. He'd seen the horrors of war, things that would turn you white. His eyes had saved his squad from enemy ambushes countless times, but he knew his luck couldn't hold out forever. He shipped back home and into a bottle.

But sweet lady booze was just like every other woman. When your wallet went empty, she left you high and dry. He pulled himself out of his funk and went back to work, but for himself this time instead of Uncle Sam. A private eye gig looked good. Spend a lot of time napping behind a desk, then tail some guy's wife, take a few pictures, cash the check. Easy, right?

Of course, things never are that easy. Sometimes you have to do a little snooping. He'd taught himself lockpicking as a teen, thought it'd be a great party trick. It sure came in handy now. And sometimes you get caught doing a little snooping. He'd refused to carry a piece since he left the service. He'd seen what those things did to people. It may have been a few years since boot camp and he might be going to seed a bit, but his right was as solid as ever. That came in even handier.

And then this case slid along his desk...

Alright, that's a rather good idea. If anyone wants to be cultist PM a character sheet and then every turn your actions.  Your objective will be to summon Cthulu by killing innocents, and the detective has to stop you before you do so.

Name:Alucard Green
Age:34
Date of Birth:20th of November
Skills: Brawling, Persuasion, Investigation
Traits: Six sense, blind
Bio: Alucard Green didn't have a good childhood, most would say it was one of the worst after his 'father' clawed out his eyes. Because of the 'incident' as his 'dad' would put it, Alucard became very good at 'seeing' with his ears. His 'dad' met a unfortunate end and he was on the other side of the city at the time, yes sir.

He became a detective which seem strange for a blind man, but his track record shows he doing something right.
