Graphic -- Murder crime scene tape

There were missing clues to the death of Chief James Tinsworth that even the representatives of SCAF are unable to make a connection. The Alert Status remains at 2 for the time being; an odd occurrence due to the high ranking status of the former chief of Midwest City Police Department (MCPD).

He had no known family really, his wife Judy Crowns-Tinsworth died six years ago from breast cancer. His older son was killed in a car crash returning back to NAF South Section Paramilitary Base 13 in the Arizona providence. No known cause for concern over his character are noted.

James Tinsworth was shot in the head, and twice in the neck by a 9mm at close point blank range; hollow tip bullets to be exact.

“People in general are getting too nosy—too much fucking thinking…”

Now remember, this is the story that must be use in all national controlled state media; the freelance local news centers in the cities will follow suit unless their funding for “clear air time” will cease immediately.

High Mayor Brand is the sponsor for compliance for this one. Meaning, nothing will come out or even be suggested of cover up. If any mention of Ghost Squad, Lt. Periluss Simms in any type of investigation and/or inquires will be taken as a threat to Homeland security. Also if it begins to pick up steam, “neutralized it” at its progeny .

Progeny, yes I said it. A reminder to all we hold dear.

Meeting is adjourned, classified silence of Order 534. Good day.

(High level meeting of SCAF Midwest Division Office with conjunction with the Southwestern Division personnel).

Yosul’s hair and skin began to disappear, as did the solid mass and composition of his physical, human form. His body quickly became transparent, then jet-black, as he merged within the surrounding shadows in wait of the unknown aggressors fast approaching. Within seconds, his ghostly transformation was complete. His mind now traveled from minor realities into a calm spirit of thought and steel to which his heartbeat slowed down to a crawl. A fire sensation inhabited his muscles, and gravity was no longer a hindrance. He was dark energy, pure strength of comfort motion and raw iron. The young urban man of Midwest City, was now the eminent—ShadowKill.

"Tell him I'm the one assassin of malevolence----the Shadow Killer!!!"

“Tell him I’m the one assassin of malevolence—-the Shadow Killer!!!”

How does ShadowKill relate to your outlook of how a super-hero should be?

or, is he too much of a anti-hero that the questions would not be valid?


mercy's stuff 040

If you have to describe this man in 5 words or less what would it be?

Here’s a hint, an excerpt from Shadow Within a City..

“Excuse me for actually giving a fuck,” retorted Det. Higgins, who, despite being outnumbered, had decided he wasn’t going to be disrespected much longer. “If you must know,” he snapped back, “I’m asking because I’m concerned about his health. He’s not gonna last much longer, if he don’t receive, professional medical attention, and if he has a record, than I don’t have to tell you, he can’t be admitted to a regular hospital—but I have connections, and I can help—believe it or not! So, what’s it gonna be hot-shot? You gon’ keep playin’ this tough-guy bullshit with me, or, are you gonna do what it takes to save your friend?”

What is very interesting; I and Joel “Yoel” Charles were the creators of the comic book ShadowKill but F. Kenneth Taylor was the first person to draw the first two pages of the comic (issue 1).  More interesting F. Kenneth Taylor joined the project after I wrote the first three issues and at that time I knew I needed help.  The creativity, energy, and the introduction into “attitude dialogue” was a breath of fresh air.  Together we wrote 50 scripts in all for ShadowKill.  Regrettably there is only one issue in print for ShadowKill due to the amount of work needed with the limited artists available at the time.

That of course did not stop us.  Together we started to put together some scripts, with a few revisions here and there and created “Shadow Within A City.”  This goes to show for everyone to never forget about past projects.  When the time permits itself, bring them back in full force!!

Also when a special person such as a very talented individual such as F. Kenneth Taylor wants to join your project; leave the ego at home and accept the help.  The old saying; two heads are better than one?!”

Well in this case, HELL YEAH!!  (also, we lost quite a bit of weight so don’t let that picture fool you LMAO)

All part of the world of ShadowKill. Like my man Three-Dog said in Fallout 3; “Gotta’ fight, the good fight.” This short story will take a in depth look at two mysterious characters; Matrix and Chono. The “ying & yang” of Midwest City.. Enjoy.

Ok, some of you know I’ve been working on this short story (which YOU will title) for about 1.5 months or so. Before YOU choose a title, I have to give you the background and character info to help you decide, so here goes…


The idea for this story came about from 2 characters in Shadow Within A City, the book I co-authored with K.G. Bethlehem. The characters names are Chono Soto and Matrix Ito, both martial arts experts; with Chono being the protagonist & Matrix the antagonist. “Shadow Within In A City” hints to a bitter feud and/or rivalry and history between them, and in one scene gives direct reference to their past. Each of them also has a “mysterious”, clouded past in “Shadow Within A City”. So we thought it would be a good idea to give them…

Race/Ethnicity: Japanese
Age: 33
Height: 5’4”
Weight: 141lbs
Demeanor: Violent, Aggressive & Focused

Profile: Matrix Ito, a 10th degree Black Belt
was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan, where
he began a felonious lifestyle at a very young
age. He quickly rose from the slums of Kyoto’s
criminal underworld and became the most
feared Crimelord in Kyoto, as well as the
Eastern Hemisphere; wanted by apprehension
bureaus in Japan (Japanese Intelligence/J.I),
Germany (German Investigation Agency/GIA),
and France (Federal Apprehension Bureau of
France/FABF). He fled to Midwest City to elude
Chono Soto, and seek out BloodOath from the
advice of a mutual acquaintance. Murder,
kidnapping, extortion, black-market arms,
drugs, high-stakes robbery; there’s not a crime
Matrix hasn’t committed.

Just to give you a little look into the man; here is an excerpt—-

Outside, several squad cars and policemen waited to try and apprehend him. He looked at them smiling.

He dropped his weapon, and raised his hands high. “Here I am!” He shouted, “Come get me!” Quickly, four officers rushed him, two on the right, and two on the left. He spun to his right, and watched as the quartet collided with each other. Swiftly, he reached behind his back, grab bed two grenades, and hurled them at the police cars. The blast killed several officers and bystanders and damaged several parked cars. The officers attacked again. He leaped into the air, performing a 720 with on leg extended outward, executing a Hurricane Kick. He intentionally and accurately nailed each officer in the temple with the force of ten men, killing them all instantly. He picked up his weapon, and casually walked back to his car and drove off.

Thanks for visiting again and look forward to new posts and additions to Shadow Within A City!!
