A Dying City(Ded. Lit.)

Welcome to Arkan City, a place choked by the corruption of crime and corruption. The police are bought off by the mob, do-gooder citizens are scared pantsless or darkened by the crime and violence. 
Nobody wants to challenge the evil that has made Arkan City a festering pit of scum.
Nobody, that is, except for Hound Unit. 
To call Hound Unit cops would be inappropriate. Hound Unit is more...vigilantes...employed by the cops. Their tactics are unorthodox, their attitudes are harsh, and they don't take no for an answer.
They just went missing.
You are a squad member of Hount Unit, and you must survive the depths of the filth of Arkan City before you can begin to clean it up again.
Will crime kill Arkan? Or will Hound Unit do their duty and finish it once and for all?

(About 25-43. Anything younger than that and they are too inexperienced for Hound Unit. Anything older and they're a bit too bone-weary for Hound Unit's...extreme...activites.)

Name:  Rowan Fielders 
Age: 24 (almost 25) 
Squad Position: New Recruit 
Personality: TBD (Is that OK.)
Appearance: Rowan is short for her age, around 4'11" and has a light build.  She looks childish because of her frame and light build.  Though she is physically matured she doesn't have a noticeable figure.  Rowan though light is strong and as a very light layering of muscles on her body. 
She has white-blonde hair is a spikey pixie cut.  Her eye lashes are pale and almost impossible to see making her looked rather freaky they surround light pink-ish eyes.  Above her eyes are normal eyebrows the same color as her hair. 
Rowan has pale skin, it's almost tranlsuscent it's so pale, in some parts you can see her veins in patches here and there.  She has scars on her body and usually scrapes and bruises because she gets into fights and trouble very easily. 
She has the the black sillouette of the Marine Corps symbol tattooed on her left shoulder blade with the name Robert Eli Marks underneath it. On the top of her left hand is a blue sun and on her right ankle is a ring of dark silver barbed wire wrapping up halfway on her shin, the wire appears to be broken, last of all on her left upper arm, facing out is a pink, purple and silver butterfly with the name Casey written in cursive on the left wing.
Rowan usually wears wood land camoflouge cargo pants, a black tank top, black combat boots and a dark brown leather jacket, in her pocket she always keep her marine mentor's dog tags.
Bio: Rowan was born an albino, that is where she gets her strange looks.  Because of these looks she spent most of her life as an outcast and was bullied throughout her school years.  Her home life wasn't any better, her mother abandoned her with her mentally ill father when Rowan was 8.
Rowan had a little sister, Casey who was born a year before her mother left. Rowan, though she loved her sister wasn't very good at taking care of her, Rowan was tough and spent a lot of time in the streets, with her little sister.
Rowan spent a lot of her free time wandering in the streets with her sister this is where she learned first hand how evil the city of Arkan was.  Rowan didn't have a good role model to lead her nor did she have any great influences in her life.  She nearly was swept away into a life of crime herself and spent time in juvie for participating in gang fights and other such crimes.  After the first time Rowan went to Juvie when she was 12 years old hr sister was 5, Rowan had also gotten her sister in trouble and when she got out Rowan found out that her baby sister had been placed in foster care, ROwan hasn't seen her sister since. 
At the age of 15 she dropped out of highschool and ran away from home.  She lived on the streets and got into even worse trouble there when she was 19 she was thrown into jail again, there she met a guard, an retired-Marine who saw she had potential and started to almost mentoring her, trying to become a sort of father figure in her life in a very odd way. This man, Robert helped Rowan through some of her difficulties and was one of the only people to gain her trust. He also encouraged her to go to the school program offered in the school and try and complete her education. Rowan was still stubborn though and never fully completed high school, not finding the classes interesting 
When she was 22 she was released from jail.  Her friend the retired-Marine was killed in a prison break 3 months after her release. 
Rowan went form street rogue to cop after that.  The police chief sent her to the Hound Unit when she was 24 because he siad it suited her more than being an ordinary cop, and because she was too much trouble for him to want to handle.  Rowan has been in the Hound Unit a mere 3 weeks now.

Name: Jared Axion(Prefers Axion)
Age: 34
Squad Position: Veteran, Second-In-Command
Personality: Jared is a gruff man. Short with words, short on temper, and even shorter with bullsh.it. He hates, hates, when people lie or talk around a subject. With this in mind, he is straight to the point and brutally honest. He seems to have a very hard shell on the outside, but he deeply cares for his squadmates. He would hate to see them die, and they're the only family he's got. He's a hard drinker, and sometimes will go off for days on a drink-and-bin.ge streak. 
Appearance: Jared is of average heigh, 5'8", and broad. He has a built, thick tone to him. Not so much toned as...thick. He is by no means fat and in very good shape, but he deson't look like, per se, skinny. He shaves his head to a very thin layer of prickly, turning-grey hair. He has gun-metal silver eyes, and and blocky face. He has a square, set jaw, thin lips with a scar across them, and a swollen nose from multiple breaks. 
Biography: Jared isn't somebody you would think had a future as a cop. He grew up in the darkest corner of Arkan City, surrounded by crime every day. He was no clean kid himself, and by age 17 had committed six indivudal acts of theft and two assaults with a deadly weapon.  Yet, he did it to survive. The strong live, and the weak fade away in Arkan City. Jared was determined to be strong. so he did what he had to do. He dropped out of school sophomore year in college, and returned when he was 30 to finish. He now has a degree in Law Enforcement and is working his hardest to rid the filth of Arkan City.

(They do! Perhaps they could be close, or become close. Not lovers, as Jared will probably be married or recently divorced. But...Jared as somewhat of an older brother? I dunno, I/m just spitting out ideas.)

Name: Bailey Wolfe
Age: 27
Personality: Bailey is all over the place. At first glance he doesn't seem like the kind of person you should be weary of. He can be rather charming when he wants to be, but often settles into his familiar personality of a drunken, over excited lunatic. He finds genuine joy in fighting and chaos, while he always gets the job done, he will do so in extremely messy and often unconventional ways. He has poor self control and very advanced instincts. For the most part, Bailey is friendly and light hearted. It takes a lot to get him angry, but not that much to get him throwing punches. 
Appearance: Bailey is very tall, yet he doesn't seem to take up that much space due to his lean build. He is very strong and toned and often covered in bruises and various injuries. He has homemade tattoos along his back and chest and pale hair chopped short. Bailey used to be good looking, but it's hard to tell now with all the scars. He has wide green eyes and a sharp brow bone. Bailey is more often then not grinning for no real reason. He always wears his leather duster and has an unhealthy obsession with his favorite knife, that he calls Polly. 
Biography: Bailey is the middle of five and doesn't talk much about his childhood. His family wasn't that well off as his father drank too much to hold down a job, but Bailey and his older brothers made up for it. He was highly independent from a young age, but he never went to school past sixth grade. Bailey may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but he makes up for it with his instincts and fighting ability. Bailey was recruited when he was twenty five as an alternative for jail time.

Name- Lisa Callins
Age- 27
Persoality- Lisa is very stiff and formal, not putting a lot of emotion into her words. She tries to just stay away from much interaction with her other squad members (unless she has to) or people in general. She despises being touched, and can even react with violence if someone touches her. Lisa is a thorough, hard worker with an observant mind and an eye for details. She doesn't have any prejudices and is fine with all lifestyles.
Appearance- Lisa is cute in a childish sort of way, with bobbed blonde hair and a height of 5'2. She nearly always overdresses, no matter what the occasion is. She wears a small heart locker around her neck that her mother gave her when she was 9 as a birthday gift. She has startingly green eyes and creamy white skin.
Squad Position- New Recruit
Bio- Lisa grew up with her single mother in a small apartment. Her mother had to work long hours, so she learned to care for herself at a very young age. Her most precious item is the locket her mother gave to her, made of real gold. Lisa knew that there was no way her mom could have gotten enough money to pay for it (being well-aware of heir money problems even back then) but she didn't ask questions. She got a job as soon as she could to help with things around the house. Unforunately the extra money wasn't enough to pay for the hospital bills when her mother got sick. She tied a few months after Lisa turned 18.

Ahhhhh! I was just thinking "We need a good guy/girl to balance out the squad!" Your character is perfect for that!
