It has been over a hundred years since the collapse of the Higher Institute of Villainous Education (H.I.V.E.), the defeat of the demon-lord Trigon, and the disappearance of the villainous mastermind, Slade. In that time, the prosperous organization known as the Teen Titans has continued to expand and grow under the encouragement and guidance of the Justice League. The Teen Titans have become a source of inspiration for all young heroes hoping to one day gain admittance into the Justice League. However, no matter how prosperous peace and good become, violence and chaos are always in quick pursuit. Criminal activity has started to spike on a global scale, giving rise to more and more dangerous threats that ordinary peace keepers cannot hope to combat. While the notorious villains that once troubled the Justice League of old have moved on into the next life, their influence can still be felt today.
In an attempt to secure peace, the Justice League is attacking the problem with a renewed vigor, but cannot hope to keep the situation under control without the aid of their younger counterparts. In order to manage the recent outbreak of crime, the Justice League has authorized the establishment of several new Teen Titan groups that are tasked with keeping the peace in their respective sectors. Through this endeavor, the Senior Council of the Justice League hopes to not only respond to the rapidly spreading threat of corruption, but also to nurture and prepare the next generation of heroes that will one day inherit their mantle.
One region in particular has the Justice League worried. The northeastern section of Sector 4, also known as the United States, has witnessed a spectacularly large increase in violent crimes involving both meta and non-meta humans. Assigning the most promising candidates to the newly established Teen Titans branch, centered in Aurora City, the epicenter of the region's criminal activity, the Justice League hopes to thwart this rapidly increasing problem before more drastic measures become necessary.
Working alongside your fellow young heroes, you are a Teen Titans Initiate, a Junior Member of the Justice League. As such, you have been assigned to the northern branch of Sector 4, a sprawling metropolis riddled with crime and corruption: Aurora City. The Justice League has seen your potential and talent and hopes that by assigning you this responsibility, you will acquire the skills and experience necessary to join their ranks as a full-fledged member. However, how you make use of this opportunity is up to you.Will you live up the to the League's expectations and rise to meet your destiny, or will you crumble under its weight? The choice is yours.

Please shoot a PM to the GMs asking if there are any special conditions or limitations that your application should be tailored to BEFORE you start working on it. For example, if our next mission is going to be a treasure-hunt in Egypt, then we might need support archaeologists, villainous tomb raiders, or even a fellow Justice League member who specializes in that field. We only accept recurring characters and villains on a need basis according to planned missions. If you have an idea for a villain/recurring character or a possible mission that can be discussed with the GMs via PM or privately on Skype. Any applications for recurring non-main cast roles should be directed to the GMs (~Renegade~ and Saiba Aisu) via PM - DO NOT POST THEM IN THE OOC!!
