Tucked away in a corner of Lansing, Michigan is a small company dedicated to the investigation and exploration of the paranormal. This company has drawn people from all over the country, for various reasons, to come and prove (or disprove) events that have left traditional investigator stumped. The jewel in their crown was a case in 2012 where one of their "gifted" employees was allegedly led to the body of a missing child by the child's ghost. Since then, media coverage has given them a significant business boom. This story followed the tales of three field investigators, The Skeptic, The Believer, and The Agnostic, as they set out to discover the truth. Does the paranormal truly exist? Or can science and logic prove all?

So, assuming I'm playing Believer, @IAmKnight is playing Skeptic, and @Finris is playing Agnostic, whose character wants to be responsible for the company's breakthrough case?

The breakout case was done by a "psychic", which was none of the main charries.

@Metronome Ohh gotcha. Somehow got the idea that these three characters were the only members of the company, but alright, that works.

Also, for 'appearance,' would you prefer a picture or description?

As it is not mentioned anywhere: Have they already found paranormal beings/objects that are at the hands of the business?

Or have they so far only ever disproved things?

So is this group a group which follows up things that seem unbelievable even with knowledge about the paranormal, or is it something akin to a ghost hunter group in the real world?

1: They probably have a haunted doll or two laying around, but just like with "real" haunted objects, it can't be definitively proven that the objects are the source of anything paranormal.

2: A little of both. There are a handful of teams at the company that specialize in different things. Ours is a field investigation team, meaning they go out and look into claims first hand. They probably do a little ghost hunting, but as with real life, they haven't really proven or disproven anything so far.

As it is right now, there is no one who is right. The believer has what they believe to be evidence, and the skeptic thinks they have the answers to prove that evidence wrong.

I posted some info on mission 1. Just some stuff your charries will know before they actually go out. I'll probably do this for every mission so that you guys aren't just wandering around.

You all can fight over who brings what evidence to the table, and also which leads your characters think is worth investigating.

Edit: May or may not add to it later

Name: Jonathan Cruise
Age: 28
Gender: male
Beliefs: Agnostic, to mostly any form of believing

Reason for joining this company: Boredom and interest in the investigation.

Personality:
Calm and rational, rather reflected. Jonathan is usually very well-mannered and tries to be polite and helpful around people. Furthermore he is quite generous.

Appearance:


Other:
Jonathan collects fountain pens and notebooks. He has a love for Gin and can be made to talk about it for quite a while.

History:
Jonathan is one of the young folks who highly profited from the internet. At the rather young age of 12 he began fiddling with programming and started to learn the ropes. For the most part it was just a hobby of a boy from a nice suburb family. It changed when he decided to do a trip around the country at 16. One of his cousins has snatched him for something similar half a year before and now that he had a car he wanted to do the same. Finding people to ride with him for a while was no problem, there were websites for this. But it turned out to be difficult to just meet up with people to have someone to talk, or go to the city together, or take a tour that required a specific amount of people. Sure you could do this over social media, but even there multiple starting points existed. He decided that a better solution would surely be accepted very well, if well known. So he build up a website and fleshed it out with the possibility to find meetups around you, somewhat like other websites find rooms, added the possibility to define routes people would like to travel together and made his newly made friends take a look and give there opinion.
The website soon took off between the travellers who regularly roamed the country and bit by bit got somewhat popular over social media and such. So popular, that after college having done a mixture of forensics and computer science classes, Jonathan decided to go a step further from his really small team of him and a friend to actively advertising and building a company. The site took of really well after that. At the age of 25 Jonathan and his co-founder got a rather generous bidding for their small start-up. Albeit nobody knows the exact amount both accepted. Jonathan stayed with the company a few more months, bringing everything to order before he left them. It was well known to his friend that he wanted to do different things and that's what he did. He made his mother show him the ropes in real estates and bought apartment complexes to renovate and them rent them to people, not making a whole lot of money (he still does not certainly like the idea of luxury renovations) but saving him some income. He travelled again and in the end decided it was time to do something else.
By luck he found the small company in Michigan, where he was actually visiting a friend, and decided to give it a shot. He was no one to plainly believe or deny things and the idea of finding the truth seemed interesting enough for a while.

I feel like I've let you all down. I'm getting increasingly busy as the weeks roll by, and I feel that I'm unable to complete an application. I really think this is a promising idea, however, so please do try and find a replacement; while I wish to stay and finish my application, I have no real guarantee that will be happening soon, and as such I don't want to hold out on you all when someone else could easily take my place. I once again apologise for all the delays, so if need be, I am more than happy to allow someone else to take my place.
