The year is 1969.

You are one of 8 people currently sitting in the library of Mr. Nailliv Live's house, conveniently located right outside of Washington DC, where you all work. No one knows anything about what's going on and were all sent here by one of their superiors.

These are the 8 roles available to participants of the game.

Group 1

The General's/Admiral's Aide
The coding for this is below. You have to decide which branch of the military you wish to work in and which official you work for.
Mr. Live is ex-military (whatever branch you choose) and a good friend of the official that you work for. He has heard of your knowledge of certain missions from the Great War, that are now needed to successfully complete this new expedition.

The Mechanic's Daughter - reserved for @soundofmind
Your mother and father owned a garage that services the cars of many Washington officials. It was unfortunate that they died in a car wreck, due to mechanical failure. You have taken over their business and now your presence has been requested on a personal company expedition as the mechanic.
Mr. Live is one of your garage's best customers and there's no way you would turn down this money.

The Academic - [b]reserved for @XxXTheSwordsmanXxX[/b]
As the Academic, you don't work or reside in Washington. Instead, you are working for a school somewhere in New England, a place that you can choose to reveal to the rest of the group if you care.
You have few financial struggles but once upon a time you were a soldier who made a mistake, something that Live knows and can hold against you. He needs an interpreter for this archaelogical mission and unlike the others, you know what he's hunting this time.
Among your many troubles is your relationship with your wife and son, which is another reason for you taking this job.

[b]Military Rank: [/b] A low officer rank is preferred such as Lieutenant.

The Reporter - reserved for @Elinor
You're the young reporter trying to make her way in the a male dominated field. When they do manage to give you an article, it's covering the "light and fluffy" stuff, rather than the dark atmosphere true to Washington DC.
So when you were contacted by representatives of Mr. Live's, a famous but secretive name in the Capitol, you jumped at the chance for something more.

Group 2

The Ambassador's Aide
Similar to the General's Aide, you were brought into this expedition by your boss.(choose the country and the ambassador. It can be historically accurate or it can be of your own creation.)
The Ambassador just happens to be long time friends with Mr. Live and decided that you would just be perfect for a new concept. You arrive at the mansion with no idea of the event. The only thing you know is that you've got to play the game in hopes of getting home.

The Chef
The name for this role is set in place as Horst. The character is only referred to by this one and when asked, give no answer.
Horst is German in origin but was in the French Foreign Legion, due to an accounting issue. As Horst, you work as both Mr. Live's chef and his personal bodyguard and sometimes a specialist on his ~expeditions~.

The Butler - reserved for @Sheyren
For this role, the real name is not set in place but you are known in certain assassin circles as "The Gondola". Do not question this name. Just accept it and realize it fits into the plot.
And you are definitely ex-military, you just have to pick your government and war.

The Senator's Ex Secretary - reserved for @WritingPrincess
It's been three years since you stopped working for the Senator on Capital Hill and moved out to the country to work for Mr. Live. After what you witnessed in the Senator's late night sessions and the advances he made, any one could understand why you would want to take him down.
Mr. Live has his own reasons for eliminating the political official, motivations you don't know about but don't care about either.
