Brendan Flynn
Brendan was born in Dublin, Ireland. At the age of 8 his parents decided to move to America when he and some of his school chums were approached by the IRA to join them. He was a troubled child and teen, finding himself in numerous scrapes over the years. He was a bit of a loner, only having one close friend in school - another immigrant (this one from England) named Adrian Hampton. Brendan was teased throughout school about his grades and not being able to read well. He began skipping classes. Between this and the fights he got into (usually protecting Adrian), he was once put on suspension, with a threat of expulsion if he didn't straighten up. Finally, an observant teacher became suspicious and had him tested and proved he was dyslexic. She offered him private lessons after school, and he took her up on it. After a few weeks, he improved and soon was reading on the level of others in his class. He began to enjoy school and made it to graduation.

One event of his childhood affected his life on a permanent level. When they were 12, his friend Adrian's father was murdered, and the killer was never found. This had given Brendan an interest in pursuing police work, and after he graduated he was accepted into the Police Academy and attended classes at MSU in the Criminal Justice department. He hopes to become a detective and perhaps someday open the cold case on the murder of Mr. Hampton and try to find the murderer. Brendan finished the Academy and got a degree from MSU. He landed a job on the MSU campus police force where he has worked for 4 years. He had been taking graduate classes at night, but has had to let that go for now, due to "other" nocturnal activities... More recently, he was just accepted for one of the coveted positions on the East Lansing Police Department. He's looking forward to working with them, and sees it as a step in the right direction toward becoming a detective.

Brendan is currently 27 years old. He is a heavy smoker...but is considering giving it up... He thinks Minka is hot and Rocky is a lucky b******. Some of the other females in the group are cute.. but seriously too young, and wonders if he really wants to start a relationship with everything else going on in his life right now?

Justice Rasputin
Born July 4, 1986 to parents from career military families, Andrew Justice Rasputin was brought up soaked in the ideals of upholding goodness and doing the right thing, no matter the fear or the personal cost. He is an only child, and was raised in Lansing. When the Iraq War began and his parents enlisted, Justice was both sent to live with his maternal Grandmother in Mason and gifted with an ‘ancient family heirloom’, a working VW bus. Soon after his 18th birthday, Justice designed and began work on his full body tattoos, and painted ‘The Justicemobile’ with sweeping black patterns to match. Currently, Justice is studying art with a focus in tribal design, and plans to open his own tattoo parlor after graduation. Though he has a room on campus, Justice prefers to sleep in his van down by the Red Cedar River. It is not public knowledge, even among the university staff, that Justice actually has a permit to do this. He has never shown it to anyone who has come to drive him off.
Justice’s mother lives in St. Mary’s, Georgia, where she repairs submarines for the US Navy. His father, Brigadier General Andrew Rasputin I, is currently deployed in Iraq.

Brian Marcuson
Born to a successful businessman and stay-at-home mom, Brian Dean Marcuson was brought into the world April 4, 1986. His father, Dean Marcuson, worked for a successful international business, brokering deals with some of the major players in the worldwide scene. "Truth," Dean often reminded his son, "can be bent to get what you want, but not at the expense of people."

Brian would get a hard lesson in this during his sophomore year of high school. After being picked up from school by his mother, the pair came home to their Bloomfield Hills, MI home emptied, their father gone. The only clue was a note left on the kitchen table saying, "If I continued on as I am, it would put you both in danger. Goodbye. -Dean"

Brian eventually completed high school in the top 10 of his class, earning him a journalism scholarship to MSU. Currently, he works as one of the top beat reporters for the State News. When he's not getting the next big scoop, Brian is known to be socially all over campus, from the major museum fundraisers to the front row of sporting events.

He stands 6'5", weighs 240 pounds and is known on his team for his fast skating, quick stick and hard hits. Hockey is his life, and Jimbo has given him the name "Captain Hockey". The team calls him "Moose", and he'll grudgingly answer to this off the ice. He is entering his sophomore year as an education major. Tommy is proud to be Canadian, and his favorite musical act is the Bare Naked Ladies. Other than Jimbo's show, he enjoys watching "My Goldfish is Evil" on CBC. Recently, Tommy enjoyed a trip to Toronto with his good friend Paul McLarey and has submitted himself to a training regimen imposed by Minka Bogdonovich. No more Molson's or ice cream!

James Roberts
James Aleksandr Roberts, was born April 13, 1979 and grew up in an affluent suburb of Detroit. Graduating high school, he attended MSU, where he finished with a degree in Biology. After considering a career in research & development, he decided to pursue the lofty goal of teaching.

Six months into the internship, he ran into a gal who was a senior at MSU. He wasn't very lucky at relationships, yet with her, something was different. He worked for weeks to get her attention, then one day, she approached him, and they went through the best summer of James' life. One night, he attended a ceremony with Sara to celebrate Samhain, the pagan ceremony celebrating the new year. However, it wasn't the creature that appeared to come out of a portal behind the altar. It was the force of troops that arrived en force to subdue the creature, then proceed to capture the group. In the face of this, James did the only thing he could; He ran.

James hid for weeks to evade his captors, then went to school as if nothing happened. He was brought in by the police, but never charged with anything, even though most of the people that night were found murdered a week before his return, Sara not among them.

Since then, James has devoted most of his free time to the search of her. And recently, he got involved with a group that may get her closer to Sara's whereabouts...
