@hammerknight: The moderator has spoken! Thanks!
@Stulte: Thank you and I agree with what you’re sayin’. I made Nightshadow’s first misssion to be a failure because I think that humanizes him. After all, as you can see in it’s first uniforms, he’s just an average joe trying to make justice.
Now for more characters of the First Season of THE WATCH:
Daniel Wilson â€“ 39 years (dead) – Detective
Once a respectful family man and detective, Daniel Wilson was brutally murdered during a warehouse raid. His death revealed that he was involved with the Barzinis, one of the four families that control the cityâ€™s underworld. But, was he? Even after ten years, Danielâ€™s death is surrounded by many uncovered mysteries.
Amanda Rodriguez â€“ 45 years – housewife
This woman passed through tough times. After her detective husband was killed and accused of being involved with the organized crime, she was forced to move out to her old neighborhood, Carlton Heights, a crime-ridden, poor comunity. The only thing that keeps her hopeful is her son, who works in an honest job. Still, she still worries about him, after all, bullets donâ€™t choose its targets.
Troy Jackson aka Firewallâ€“ 16 years – Student
Paulâ€™s teenage neighbor. While most kids from Carlton Heights dream of being at a basketball team or in a gang, Troy was extremely dedicated at hacking. He could easily infiltrate at the city biggest bankâ€™s database with his always trusty laptop. As Paul begins his adventure as a masked vigilante, he finds in Troy his first ally in fighting crime.
The Butcher (real name unknown) â€“ age unknown â€“ Serial Killer
No one knows where he came from, his name, age or any connection with any of the crime organization, except by his own band of deranged misfits called Lunatikz. Itâ€™s said that over 50 people have been attacked by the Butcher, but only a couple have lived to see another day. Most of his victimsâ€™ bodies were never found.
Paul Rodriguez-Wilson aka Nightshadow â€“ 25 years â€“ Radio DJ
“Paul helps his widowed mother as a radio DJ on the local station, presenting a classic rock show called â€œNight Watchâ€. Heâ€™s known and liked by his neighbors, but behind his good humor, hides a feeling of indignation and anger as he sees his hometown being savaged by petty gangs and criminal organizations. Eager to do justice with his own hands, he became the Nightshadow, a masked vigilante who wants and will put the criminals at their deserved place: jail.”
Uniform 1 – Night One
This is the outfit Paul uses as he first embodies his Nightshadow persona. Unfortunately, his first night as a vigilante is a failure. As he tried to stop three members of the Lunatikz of hurting an innocent woman, they proceed to overpower and beat up Paul to near-death. And, to crown Paul’s defeat, the sadistic Lunatikz kill the woman, right in front of him, while he passes out.
Uniform 2 – New Shadow
Weeks after that disastrous night, Paul decides that he will keep trying to bring justice to Freemont. Now with a new outfit and a card on his sleeve – his old man’s revolver – the Nightshadow watches over the dangerous district of Carlton Heights once again.
So here’s my synopsis of THE WATCH:
“Freemont City, once the Light City of America, now lives in its darkest times. Crime surrounds every single element in the city, making billions of dollars and locking the honest citizens in its homes. That is, until one man decided to change this.
Paul Rodriguez, a radio DJ, son of a murdered detective, decides to finnaly take action against gangsters, lunatics and others that corrupt his hometown, assuming the identity of Nightshadow.
â€œThe Watchâ€ will follow Nightshadowâ€™s crusade in Freemont, as he goes deep at the criminal underbelly of the city.”
I’m writing the story on my tumblr, nightofthewatch.tumblr.com. So far I only put the prologue, but the first chapter is almost finished.
