Police Infiltration: A Mafia School Game
In the happy town of Kirksville the citizens are mostly well behaved, but those intent on breaking the law are dealt with efficiently by the large police department. Unfortunately, the falling crime rates are not to everyone’s tastes, and in an effort to “represent their business interests” the local Mafia have had to resort to infiltrating the police themselves. As events take a turn for the worse for the Chief of Police, the station is forced into lockdown and the Police workers and the Mafiosos are forced to deal with each other in the most basic terms, as they fight for the future of Kirksville.

Poppy, Chief Inspector and new Chief of Police, played by Pandora
Randy, Special Agent of the KIA, played by Rick
Adam, Motorcycle Cop, played by badboytje88
Adam is a Motorcycle Cop who rides hard and hits hard. If you get pulled over for speeding by him, he’ll make sure you cooperate. If not, you’ll spend at least one night in a police cell. He’s particularly hard on joy riders, who he’ll lock up and ‘talk to’ until they honestly tell him their age.
Amelia, Desk Sergeant, played by TheBoyWonder
Amelia is a Desk Sergeant. While she’s keen to be an active Police Officer, she’s incredibly scatterbrained and forgetful, and often even forgets which cells criminals are in. Fortunately it would seem that the worst consequence of her forgetfulness so far has been that a notorious gangster who ordered roasted pigeon with potatoes for his Christmas meal last year got fish and chips instead.
Andrea, Secretary to the Chief of Police, played by PsyKater
Andrea used to be a member of the Police SWAT team, but is currently the Secretary to the Chief of Police. Several years ago, members of a Mafia gang on the run lead her unit into a forest. When it came to a gunfight between the gang and her unit, she stood paralyzed, afraid to fire her gun. After countless sessions with the Police Psychiatrist, it was decided a desk job suited her better.
Christine, Coffee Lady, played by konze
Christine is supposed to make sure the Police Officers of Kirksville get their coffee and tea every morning and afternoon, and to provide liberal amounts of homemade buns. However, come teatime, she is typically nowhere to be found and the Police Officers have resorted to getting their own coffee and tea instead of putting up with her sarcastic attitude and dry pastries. Rumour has it she sleeps somewhere at the police station as no one knows where she lives, and no one has ever seen her go home.
Gary, Bomb Disposal Officer, played by Adam
Gary is an enthusiastic Bomb Disposal Officer, however his skill with bombs often doesn’t match his enthusiasm and he has suffered a number of work-related mishaps as a result. He really enjoys the sound of bombs going off, though, and ever since the department acquired a bomb disposal robot, Gary spends his days remote-controlling “Gary Jr.”.
Henrietta, Undercover Cop, played by Masked Builder
Henrietta may look like a girl from the mean-streets, but she’s actually the most dedicated Undercover Cop in the Police Force. She’s spent so much time infiltrating the seedy underworld of Kirksville that she’s sometimes barely recognisable as a Police Officer. In fact, she’s so good at her job that maybe she sometimes forgets she actually is a Police Officer.
Ian, Lawyer, played by TazManiac
Ian is a Senior Partner at Blutgeld & Sons Legal Firm, and the nature of his legal practice necessitates him spending almost all of his time at the local Police Station. He can often be found here, arguing vehemently for his clients and using whatever means necessary to win his cases. He believes passionately in his own skills as a lawyer and won’t stop arguing until everyone believes his version of ‘the truth’.
Isaac, Janitor, played by TrumpetKing67
Isaac makes sure the entire Police Station is always spotless. Light bulbs get replaced before they even burn out and even the criminals spending a night at the station compliment him on the cleanliness of their cells, or at least they would, if they ever saw him or knew who he was. He’s an exceptionally quiet man who keeps himself to himself and is rarely seen. Before the brutal murder of Police Chief Jack Stone, he had never been heard to speak.
Jared, Beat Cop, played by Ferrik
Jared keeps Kirksville safe by pounding its streets as a Beat Cop. Due to his tendency to want to arrest nearly everyone he sees, his commanding officers have insisted he patrol with a colleague at all times to keep his paranoia at bay. Everywhere Jared turns, he sees another criminal, or another crime, and his colleagues are beginning to feel he’s on a bit of a witch hunt.
Jean, Local Bum, played by Endgame
Jean has become part of the furniture at the police station, as he seems to spend so much time there. Since his wife left him over a decade ago, he’s been roaming the streets of Kirksville in search of the perfect drink, or perhaps something shiny. In order to scrounge enough money together to buy a few bottles of ale to keep him warm at night, he commits petty crimes, but often forgets what he’s doing halfway through the crime and wanders off, making him an easy pick-up for the Patrol Cars.
Kendra, Beat Cop, played by Stormblessed
Kendra is another of Kirksville’s Beat Cops and nobody knows exactly where she is from or how she ended up in Kirksville. She talks in an often near-incomprehensible dialect, yet all of her colleagues somehow manage to understand her perfectly. Despite being in numerous dangerous situations, she always manages to survive, and she has received multiple hero of the year awards, however these were mostly for rescuing cats.
Mark, Team Leader Vice Squad, played by JaseTJ
Mark is the Team Leader for the Vice Squad and is extremely dedicated to his job. So dedicated, in fact, that he has been known to completely lose himself in his work. The rumours are that as a result of his dedication he may indulge in the very vice he strives to combat and as a result of this apparent excess he has become a somewhat emotional, dramatic and impulsive kind of guy.
Phil, Detective, played by Scorpiox
Phil is a Detective and a real workaholic. Once he takes on a case he’ll spend hours on end hunting for clues and interrogating his suspects; he won’t ever take any of their statements at face value. He’ll work overtime until he connects the dots and cracks a case, and fears no one and nothing that might stand in his way. Frogs tend to freak him out, though.
Phyllis, Beat Cop, played by Superficial Username
Phyllis is another of Kirksville’s Beat Cops. She works tirelessly at her job, but has always really longed for romance. Unfortunately she’s never really had a serious relationship, at least not with a real person. She’s started talking to the coffee machine that was installed a couple of months ago, and they spend more and more time together every day. Phyllis has fallen deeply in love with the machine and believes unshakably in its affections for her. She’s already making plans for their marriage next Summer.
Samantha, Local 'Masseuse', played by DarthPotato
Sammiieee, as he/she’s known to his/her ‘clients’, is a man trapped in a woman's body and is very well know around the town of Kirksville. Extremely well known, in fact, as his/her little black book can attest. He/She works tirelessly to keep his/her many clients satisfied (and he/she does keep them so very satisfied), but unfortunately, his/her methods of keeping the citizens of Kirksville entertained are not strictly legal and as a result Samantha finds himself/herself spending more nights in the cells than... anywhere else.
Zachary, Forensic Officer, played by zakura
Zachary is Kirksville Police Station’s Forensic Officer and he has a reputation for being a bit of a wacko. He often uses unconventional investigative techniques to get to the bottom of the cases assigned to him, but rarely do they pay off. His colleagues respect his ‘cutting edge’ techniques, even if they find them totally bonkers (and possibly a bit silly), however they had to draw the line at his last theory where he hypothesised that he could detect criminals by their breakfast. It’s a well-known fact that everyone in Kirksville has sausages for breakfast.
