Character A is a bright young detective, new to the force but eager to solve cases. Despite their lack of experience compared to their superior officers, their investigative and reasoning abilities are unmatched, and it’s easy to tell just by talking to them. But not much goes on in their little town, and there aren’t any real cases. It seems like all there ever is to do is paperwork.
Until one day, they receive a letter. The letter is from a former officer who transferred to another city several months back; he had met them when they hired on, and seemed to enjoy talking to them. He was an older fellow and one of the few superior officers who seemed impressed rather than intimidated. The young detective hadn’t heard from him since his departure— until today, when they pulled a coffee-stained envelope from their mailbox. Inside was a neatly folded piece of paper, scribbled with lightly smudged ink. Even if his name hadn’t been on it, they would’ve recognized his small, shaky handwriting.
Dear Character A
It’s been awhile. I hope you’re doing well. The excitement of that old town isn’t getting to you, is it? I kid.
If you aren’t too busy, I could use your help here. This place isn’t anything like back home, and we’ve been coming across some strange cases. I’m old now, and not as bright as I used to be, but I think even my younger self would have a hard time with some of the happenings going on here lately.
None of this makes any sense to us. But I think if anyone could help us get a better angle on this, it would be you. I spoke to the higher ups, and they have already approved it if you want to transfer. If it’s no trouble to you, I think all of us at the station would really like if you came on down.
Might get dangerous though.
I think that’s the fun part.

In essence, you play a young detective, and I’ll be playing a criminal that has been causing problems in a big city. The characters sort of engage in a rivalry and game of wits, lots of clever banter, and we sort of just see where it goes from there. Will the detective bring the criminal to justice, or will innocent people suffer because they couldn’t stop the villain?
The basic rules apply. Keep it PG-13.
I require a writing sample. I will probably be a little picky. If you’re interested just drop a writing sample and I’ll let you know if it’s a good fit. ^-^
