The trains thundered as they pumped the black coal smoke into the sky as the passed through tunnels and bridges though of the city of New Mossflower, a city named after the great forest several miles out of the city limits. Many view this city as a shining example of what many call it the "Industrial boom" although a certain Abbey disagreed with this new change of thought as many began to turn away from old tradition to embrace the new world. "Forsaking the old traditions and values will lead to your doom!" was the cry from the abbey as the world dismissed them as a group of elders set in their ways. Yet the city of New Mossflower wasn't truly as easy to make it in as many viewed it as. Large companies dominate the city monopolies while poverty is a sadly ignored issue in some of the city districts along with crime throughout the city. Yes in this town, it was either you make it or the city devours you.
Meanwhile at a alley on one of the city corners there was several police wagons with officers scattered through the alley as a small crowd began to appear to try and see what had happened. Eventually a mechanical carriage many call a "Automobile" appeared and stopped at the corner. A young and well dressed rat wearing a newsy cap open the door and got out to the drivers and approached the officers who attempted to stop him. "Hold it sir," said the hare officer. "We got ourselves a investigation going on your going to have to wait." The rat shook his head. "Ah relax constable," He said as he pulled out a badge from his pocket and showed it to the officer. "Inspector Jay Princeton, I'm assigned to this investigation. So What do we have?" The hare nodded and began to walk with Jay to the crime scene. "Well Inspector it's looks like some hate crime wot, can hardly hold me lunch from looking at the sight. The victim has been identified as a fox named Victor Marlson, one of them accountant types. Poor lad's nearly had his head split in two." Soon the two approached the scene, there was the fox's body which had a large cloth covering the head slumped against the a wall that had the word "Vermin" written in blood on the wall. The rat walked over and took the sight in while the hare officer finally had lost his lunch vomiting in a corner. "Victim was a non-wood lander, the word vermin written in blood and signs that the weapon was some sort of heavy object…" The rat muttered to himself as he began to take notes in a small notebook as he looked about the crime scene.
OOC: Several important things: 1) even though this takes place in the industrial revolution styled era I have added EARLY cars (like the ford Model T) for one major reason. Horses. I never new what a horse would be like in the Redwall universe, would it be a actual character that can do things like everyone else or is it the same work animal in the real world? So I just added cars to create Redwalls own version of the Industrial Revolution. So yes there are guns and whatnot but remember it is only weapons in this time period!
Jay's age is about 23( okay not really that important but meh)
Pay close attention so some subtitle hints you may be able to notice somethings I may hint to that would be revealed later on into the rp!
