“A City in Peril” is a satirical film-noir, following delusional PI Sam Striker, and his newest ally Amie Amour, as they work in tandem to rid their city of the corruption that plagues it. The duo is brought together after Amour’s husband is murdered the same night that Striker witnesses a bank robbery, and Striker dedicates himself to her case. But, the corruption fights back, and the pair is forced into extreme measures to ensure not only their own safety, but of all of the cities’ residents.
[SAM STRIKER] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 30-35]
Striker is an ex-cop turned PI, who desperately wishes his life was like a classic film noir. He is facing a drought in his Private Investigation business, and is desperate for work. Striker is abrasive, but under his gruff exterior, he has a heart of gold, and a deep care for his city.
[AMIE AMOUR] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-30]
Amour is the most mysterious femme fatale on the block. Her assumed heritage is French-Canadian, until she relocated after meeting her future husband, Ernie. Her exterior is icy, and her only soft spot is her now-deceased husband. If Amour wants something, she takes it, and oozes confidence and allure.
[MAYOR DOUG CHEVROLET] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 40-60]
Chevrolet is as corrupt a politician as it comes. Just as much mob boss as mayor, Chevrolet has more than a single hand in the criminal underbelly of the city he claims to represent. A true psychopath, Chevrolet can keep his composure in almost every situation. However, when awoken, his temper is extreme.
