Factions: A Murder Mystery

NASA scientists have made an official Doomsday announcement that an unexpected cluster of asteroids will strike Earth in only ten days. They predict this collision will lead to global mass devastation. The top astrophysicists have exhausted all efforts to prevent the disaster, and the outlook for Mother Earth is grim.
The vampire, sorcerer, and werewolf factions have formally announced their existence to humans and arranged a meeting to form an alliance and save the planet. The faction leaders believe that with their combined skills, they will be able to band together and stop this catastrophe. But that can only happen if this unprecedented gathering goes well.
The factions will gather in the French Quarter of New Orleans at Dauphine Place - a legendary house of horrors. This will be the first time that supernatural beings have met with humans. Will the alliance save the world? Or will the apocalypse commence? This is where your story begins.

Meeting Attendees
 

MAGDALENE LEBEAU

Vampire

Magdalene LeBeau is the leader of the vegetarian vampires of the Northern Hemisphere. She has kept her bloodline secret from all other factions on Earth and has lived in harmony with the humans for many centuries, only feeding on animal blood. Behind the scenes, Magdalene is ruthless and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. She doesn't work well with others.
However, there is a rumor that Magdalene wants to make a truce with the human-feeding vampires - but only until the Earth is out of danger.

Suggested attire: Vampire costume. Optional to wear vampire's teeth. 

FRANCOIS TUSSAND

Vampire

Francois Tussand is the unpredictable leader of the Southern Hemisphere Vampires. Over the years, Francois has dealt with the humans chasing after what they believed to be merciless serial killers. However, the humans had no idea they were hunting hungry vampires. Unlike the Northern Vampire Faction, Francois's bloodline retained the thirst for human blood.
Francois has a strong disdain for sorcerers because, historically, they threatened the vampire's food source—humans. He finds witches and wizards to be vile and untrustworthy. Will Francois be able to stomach being in the exact location as the Sorcerer Faction? 

Suggested attire: Vampire costume. Optional to wear vampire's teeth. 

 

CYRENA CRYPT

Sorcerer

Cyrena Crypt is one of the most powerful witches of the Royal Ravenblood Coven, the international governing body of sorcery. Cyrena, the head witch of Order One, uses her power to fulfill her yearnings, even though the Treaty of Crimea signed with the vampires in 1353 states that she can only use magic to defend herself or conceal her identity from the humans. Instead, she lives among the humans as a psychic in Austin, Texas.
Cyrena will never forget that the Vampire Faction was behind the persecution of sorcerers, such as during the Salem Witch Trials. However, Cyrena doesn't trust that humans can save the Earth and is also unsure what the werewolves can bring to the table. 

Suggested attire: Sorcerer costume. It is optional to have a wand, crystal ball, or another magical prop.

 

KADIR EVILIAN

Sorcerer

Kadir Evilian is the head warlock of Order Thirteen of the Royal Ravenblood Coven – the international governing body of sorcery. Kadir is reckless and has always pushed for the Human Faction to be told of the Sorcerer's existence–but only because Kadir wants to rule them.
Kadir has been an outspoken proponent of dissolving the Treaty of Crimea signed back in 1353 by both the Vampire Faction and the Sorcerer Faction. Since the treaty was in place, thousands of violations have come from both sides. Kadir doesn't see why the agreement is still valid. Kadir has no problem with humans or werewolves but is unsure how they can help save the Earth. 

Suggested attire: Sorcerer costume. Optional to have a wand, crystal ball, or another magical prop.

 

CIAR CLENNAN

Werewolf

Ciar Clennan is the bold Alpha of the European werewolf clan. Ciar always does the right thing and lives a virtuous life. Ciar rules his clan with strict rules and has never allowed humans to know about the werewolves' existence, for humans believe they eradicated the wolves centuries ago. As a result, werewolves have only been mentioned in human storybooks until now.
Ciar has been reminding everyone of the Blackmoon Prophecy, which states that there will come a day when the dead will rise to defend the Earth. Ciar is confident that the prophecy refers to the impending doom of asteroids colliding with Earth. Ciar believes that if the wolves congregate in a single location, they can call upon the wolf ancestry to rise and fulfill the prophecy.

Suggested attire: Werewolf costumeA headpiece with ears and gloves/tail as optional props. Or, you can use special FX hair on your chest and the back of your hands. 

 

CORREEN DEVANY

Werewolf

Correen Devany is the rogue werewolf from Rome, Italy. Correen lives without rules, as she never bonded with her clan as a child. However, Correen has picked up straggler werewolf followers over the years and has amassed quite a clan of misfits. Correen hasn't been around Ciar, her would-be Alpha, since she left the pack as a small werechild.
Correen begrudgingly will attend the gathering in New Orleans - not because she wants to help, but because of selfish curiosity. Correen despises and undervalues the Vampire Faction, but her DNA might direct this behavior, and it is unavoidable. 

Suggested attire: Werewolf costume. A headpiece with ears and gloves/tail as optional props. Or, you can use special FX hair on your chest and the back of your hands. 

 

JUNE GRACE

Human

June Grace heads the National Security Advisement Committee of the United States. She is fearless and will do whatever is necessary to save the Earth. She's uneasy about her newfound relationships with the supernatural world, but if anybody in America could form a strong alliance with the other three factions, it would be her.
June is worried about Correen Devany attending the strategy meeting. Correen has accused June of shooting her brother during a wild boar hunt after he turned into his proper form of a primitive wolf. June denies doing this, but Correen refuses to listen to her and vows to seek revenge. Many upcoming meeting attendees have been briefed on this situation, and eyes will be on Correen to ensure no drama is ignited.

Suggested attire: Gothic/Steampunk costume. Toy weapons of any kind.

 

CALEB CANE

Human

Caleb Cane is the Secretary of State of the United Kingdom's Ministry of Defence (MoD). He is also a global human task force member working on the defense plan for Earth against the Cluster of Keres—the deadly asteroids headed for Earth. Caleb is arrogant and difficult to work with, but with a background in theoretical physics and an extraordinary IQ of above 200, he is a modern-day Einstein.
Caleb has always had a fear of the supernatural. Could that be because of his high IQ and a sixth sense that there is more to the Earth than what the eye perceives? Caleb has mentioned that he isn't thrilled to be meeting in a location that has thousands of reports of being haunted.

Suggested attire: Gothic/Steampunk costume. Toy weapons of any kind.

 

JULIEN TREMBLAY

Vampire

Julien Tremblay is the second in command of the Southern Bloodline of Vampires. Julien is loyal and dedicated, doing anything Francois Tussand commands. The Southern Vampires are elitist and on the verge of a civil war with the Northern Vampires. Julien has a bit of a temper and a voracious appetite for human blood.
Julien is not open to making truces or alliances with any other factions. Instead, Julien realizes there is no option but to work with his enemies to save the Earth. As soon as the danger has been eliminated, Julien will be ready for war against whoever looks at him sideways.

Suggested attire: Vampire costume. Optional to wear vampire's teeth. 

 

ROWAN SKYE

Sorcerer

Rowan Skye is the head witch of Order Seven of the Royal Ravenblood Coven, the international governing body of sorcery. She was born able to control electricity and is one of the most formidable witches in the faction. Nonetheless, Rowan has been having trouble controlling her power lately, especially during thunderstorms.
Rumor has it that Rowan is seeking world domination and has been working to increase her power lately. If this is true, Rowan's intentions for attending the meeting might not be valiant but somewhat villainous. 

Suggested attire: Sorcerer costume. Optional to have a wand, crystal ball, or another magical prop.

 

PAXTON RAZOR

Werewolf

Paxton Razor is the fearless Alpha from the American werewolf clan and a member of the National Security Advisement Committee of the United States. He has recently traveled the world in search of the members of his faction, to no avail, as werewolves are masters of staying hidden. He is best friends with the human June Grace. Nevertheless, because he lives disguised as a human, he's never confessed his true identity—that is, until now.
Paxton has agreed to escort June to the meeting in New Orleans to ensure her safe arrival. However, Paxton is unsure of June's true feelings about the dishonesty of his true identity. On the surface, June seems oddly okay with the mind-blowing news, but this could all be a front - or maybe she is reeling from the shock of learning that her best friend is a supernatural being.  

Suggested attire: Werewolf costume. A headpiece with ears and gloves/tail as optional props. Or, you can use special FX hair on your chest and the back of your hands. 

 

VICTORIA GLAMINTON

Human

Victoria Glaminton is the wife of Montfort Glaminton, III, a real estate magnate from Virginia and infamous billionaire. The Glamintons are a powerhouse—both influential and intimidating. Their hands are intertwined in any big news story. The power duo is notorious for making headlines. Victoria will do absolutely anything to get noticed.
Many people have warned the faction leaders that Victoria has requested to be involved in the strategy meeting only to get attention and make the gathering part of her reality show. Victoria already has the Secret Eye Production Company on notice. But most agree that an inflated bank account can't stop the asteroids.

Suggested attire: Gothic/Steampunk costume. Toy weapons of any kind.
