Sherlock city is a moderate role playing experience like nothing you have ever seen before. The city is an incredibly detailed world, down to the last sky-scraper.

With this being only a short list of things you can do in your time, you will see that the choice is yours.
The Background of the City
At the first look of Sherlock City, anyone will agree its breath taking. But what lies in the city is much more deceiving. By day, this place is a safely protected area to live a perfect life. But behind the shadows lie violent criminals waiting for the sun to set, and powerful men behind oversized office desks, plotting the demise of this fair city. Everyone in the community plays a role here, and the news is always changing. Who will you be?
Jobs and Major Companies
In Sherlock City, there are 5 major companies who play the biggest part in the city. 1. Power of Tomorrow The power of Tomorrow is a massive nuclear power plant. They supply most of the cities power with cheap energy, crushing small solar power companies with their low prices. Working for such a company would involve boring, repetitive tasks with low pay. But the except almost all applications.
2. Richard Real Estate Richard Real Estate is the proud owner of about 80% of the property within Sherlock City. So when you are purchasing any property, chances are it’s with them. Richard Real Estate is also one of the largest, most reliable stocks in the city, and by far the safest investment.
3. The Lucky 38 This Casino is no ordinary place to blow away your weekly pay. This Casino is known for keeping the control of the night life within the city. Mr. Shotton, the believed owner of the Casino, literally pays most of the police watch to turn a blind eye to the streets of the night. Most believe the majority of gangs provide him a cut of their profit. Some call Mr. Shotton and his organization the mafia itself.
4. Mc. Fatties Mc. Fatties is main source of humor and comedy within Sherlock City. Owning over 10 fast food restaurants in the city, they also provide the stores and markets with fresh food, strait from the factory! The entire city would probably starve if it weren’t for this processed food paradise.
5. Fair Doller Industries Fair Doller Industries is the economy management company of Sherlock City. Owned by the 3rd wealthiest man in alive, John Nelson, Nelson industries provides most of the jobs through the city. They are also the main providers of products, and own most of the banks.
Basic List of jobs
Here is a small list of the possible jobs within Sherlock City.
1. Business owner
3. Factory Worker
5. Police Officer
6. Fire Fighter
9. Club Manager
13. Gang Leader
14. Gang man
15. Bounty Hunter
16. Pick Pocket

He is very professional, even to the point of unnecessary paranoia.

While they may want to become enforcers of the law for honor and sometimes revenge, Locke started out by simply looking for jobs like a regular fresh-out-of-school boy. After being mugged twice by gang members, and reading a lot of articles written by an anonymous "concerned citizen" who managed to inspire the young boy, Locke was convinced that the Mafia EXISTED, and that it ran the city. His father, a well-connected police veteran, soon saw in his son an opportunity to "carry on with the family business".

· IC Name: Kravos McClure
· IC Age: 16
· Gender: Male
· Ambitions: To finally get out of this shell of loner that he is. To better himself and finally be a person who loves to communicate with others and not be someone people don't want to be. He wants to have a friend that doesn't feel sorry for him about his parents dying, that doesn't care how he looks, that doesn't care about his past.
· Personality: Friendly, Kind of a loner, Intelligent, Quick Thinking. He doesn't really like to show a hole lot of emotion and it angers him to see any form of bullying or terrible insults.
· Preferred Job: -Unavailable-
· Biography: His parents died in a car accident when he was 15 years old, now he lives in an apartment by himself. His parents had a lot of money which he gets occasionally. His parents left him enough money to last him an entire life style, but due to their lack of trust he doesn't get it for a while.
The night after his parents died he retreated into the woods and lived there for 6 months. He picked up some survival skills and trained physically and mentally while he was there. He was forced to live in the city when a couple found him sleep in one of the bushes and assumed he was dead. The police and ambulance came and forced him to stay into the city, and worst of all go to school. He studied a lot when he brought his books to the forest so he did a lot of reading. They made him stay in the crummy apartment because they thought he'd be too crazy to be with a real family.
He has at least on person who he can call a friend, and met her when he was strolling in the city. She always has guards around her but the guards let them talk and socialize but they always have to be watched. He doesn't like her in some lovey-dovey way. She was the only person that actually saw him for the person he was and had acted more like a sister to him.
He goes to school at the local high school, and people envy him for being able to do what we wants, when he wants, but in reality he longs for a family. He loves to walk through the city and visit the library a lot of the times. He is described as handsome, but not very tall standing at 5'11. He also loves to swim at the community pool every once in a while and walk in the park. He may seem like a kid, but from being alone for nearly a year he's learned a lot about the adult-life.
EDITED: WANTED TO MAKE MY BIO A LITTLE BETTER AFTER READING IT.
EDIT AGAIN: EDIT TO TELL YOU WHY I EDITED !
EDIT: ( Saw the post about bettering my ambitions and decided to do it)
