    For reference, I'm going to write this Alternate Universe's version of Chase in the discussion, I encourage everyone to do the same.

    Universe: Alternate Universe "ACME Retro"
    Name: Chase Devineaux
    Age: 27
    Profession: ACME's Coordinating Instructor
    Notes: Chase was once an ACME agent working in the 'International Crimes' Division. Today, he trains and graduates agents. He does not teach a specific class, but he is the terminus for level 1 academy students wishing to achieve agent status. Chase often coordinates with other instructors regarding graduation exams, and meets with them to gauge an agent's overall performance.

    Notes: Lee Jordan is a go-getter and a bragger, he's currently the oldest detective in the Junior Detective program and he's proud of it. (I'm keeping his personality like the cartoons, so if you've seen it, not much changes.)

    Notes: Ivy can best be described as a headstrong overachiever. She is quick to act, and often does so without thinking. Her temper is well known, though she holds the law in high regard and seeks to always do the right thing.

    Ivy is an accomplished martial artist, and pilot in training.

    Name: Eugene Grovington
    Age: 25
    Profession: Pilot for hire, former marine, and professional redhead antagonizer (Private Military Contractor).

    Eugene currently has no ties to ACME, but as an experienced pilot and gambling buddy of Chase, has been invited to consult with ACME's junior detective program for a short while. The brain/mouth filter that comes with age has not been installed yet, meaning dry snark flows unhindered in most situations.

    Name: Elsa Olsson
    Age: 13 going on 14
    Profession: ACME Junior Detective (Newbie)

    Notes: Elsa is a second generation Swedish-American on her father's side. She has a love for ancient books and epic poems. She also wants to travel but her parents' meager means doesn't help much with that. By chance, her father found the ACME JD program and encouraged her to enroll for the summer. In addition to English, Elsa speaks Swedish and Spanish, the former was natural and the later was learned.

    Occupation:
    ACME/British Territorial Army
    Location:
    San Francisco
    Universe: ACME Retro
    Name: Nace Bilby
    Age: 25
    Profession: Guest-Instructor, on loan from the South African National Defense Force

    Notes:

    Nace arrived to the United States from South Africa after eight years with the South African Army. A recent innovation done in both the United Kingdom and South Africa involving members of the military, other law enforcement agencies, and intelligence types training ACME cadets and agents in those branches was noticed by HQ, and Nace was sent to San Francisco after eight months of that training program in South Africa.

    Trained in both sniping and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) work, Nace's superiors not only expected him to teach the ACME cadets and Junior detectives, they also expected him to return a more well rounded soldier.

    VILE Agent, Part-Time Security Consultant
    Location:

    Universe: ACME Retro
    Name: Joseph Kerr
    Age: 25
    Profession: Guest Instructor, ACME Informant

    Notes:
    A former professional thief, Joseph Kerr was recruited by ACME after a heist gone horribly wrong. Seizing his second chance at life, Joseph Kerr would use his vast array of contacts and knowledge of thievery to become a key asset in ACME's intelligence department. Under the code name "John Doe", Joseph serves as ACME's eyes and ears in the underworld.

    Joseph isn't professionally trained in any form of pugilism of marksmanship; however, growing up on the streets has made him more than capable of holding his own in a fight.

    Notes on the dolls:

    1 - There will be nothing in the dolls that hint of a biological weapon.
    2 - Our primary goal is to find enough evidence to pinpoint the suspect(s)' next location.
    3 - That location is El Paso, Texas.

    Meta-knowledge background (you do not know any of this in-character, but know them as writers):

    1 - Dolls were both real and replicas, made in Japan.
    2 - Replicas are fitted with an air-tight seal inside, to keep the viruses.
    a - Dolls fitted with melamine foam.
    b - Virus cultures (not present) would be kept in metallic containers.
    c - Foam act as cushioning.
    3 - The doll we found is a discarded replica.
    4 - Thieves are already heading to El Paso, if not already there.
    5 - The viruses are to be sold to terrorists and used as a health scare.
