Okay. At long freaking last.
Name: John Lawhorn
Height & Weight: 5'9" & 155 lbs
Brief History: Born on Shadow, Lawhorn was barely a teenager when the Unification War broke out. All he wanted to do was join up and fight for the right for people to choose their own path in life. And he managed to do it...just in time for him to be deployed to Hera, for the Battle of Serenity Valley. In the grand scheme of of the war, Lawhorn was a soldier for all of about fifteen minutes...but he remembers the sacrifices made by the sons of the families that lived near him, how Shadow was destroyed by Alliance bombing, and the men next to him that died in the name of freedom. After the war ended, Lawhorn went home...but nothing lived on Shadow anymore, and his family had moved elsewhere. Heading back to Hera, Lawhorn offered up his skills as a soldier to anyone that would hire him.
It's been over twenty-five years since he started traveling the 'Verse, and he's seen a lot of ships and a lot of jobs come and go. The raw skills he had as a young Browncoat have been honed, and his mind filled with stories and experiences that make him one of the most veteran hands of the 'Verse. He's claimed that he's probably forgotten more about the ways of the world than most people have ever learned.
But Lawhorn remembers his people. Always.
Personality: Now in his mid-40s, having seen the Unification War (and its loss for the people he knew and cared for), as well as over two decades of Alliance rule, Lawhorn is a very tired and wearied individual. He approaches almost everything with at least a trace amount of cynicism, having learned to expect the worst from any and everyone unless there's something in it for them.
Skills: Military training, honed by 2 decades of experience. Extensive familiarity with the 'Verse and its ways. (He's been traveling for 20 years, after all)
Position: First Officer
- He was a Pathfinder as a Browncoat, receiving training as a scout and tracker in addition to his basic military skills.
