There we go.



AL-21 Combat Laptop

Description
The modern battlefield is as much a place of vital technology as it is one of combat. The AL-21 is part of the USCM's efforts to insure that individual squads of marines are able to adapt to this fact. Designed to be as durable as possible the AL-21 is capable of hacking into nearly any enemy computer system, be it a simple electronic lock or a comand and control mainframe

Effect: Your character is able to connect the laptop to nearly any computer and attempt to hack into it, thus allowing them to contol said computer. The success or failure of these attempts is determined by your character's Intelligence stat.

Sergeant Kyle Young is a 13 year veteran non-commissioned officer and an infantryman in the Marine Corps.  At 29 he excels in tactics and combat, his repeated acts of insubordination caused him to receive three demotions, with infractions such as fighting with an officer, (which resulted in 2 years in jail time), and striking a superior officer. He sports an ace of spades playing card attached to his left shoulder pauldron, and also carries a 357 sidearm he named "Naomi"

Biography

Since he was born Young's life revolved around the military. His family lineage has been a part of the military for generations, dating back to at least World War II. He signed up for boot camp at the minimum age of 16.

Although not physically gifted, Forge is strong for his size and weight. He displays desire and toughness in nearly everything he does and is incredibly competitive and driven to succeed. His training and discipline have left him with a "unique" personality and method of getting things done. Those under his command trusted him greatly, despite the fact that he failed his last psychological exam.

Young was a born warrior, but has difficulty coping with life outside the military. He has no family ties just the Corps. Forge has been decorated numerous times for valor and gallantry on the battlefield, but just as many counts for insubordination, conduct unbecoming, and striking a superior officer

He spent 2 years in prison, an infraction that removed any chance of moving through Officer Candidate School or even progressing beyond the rank of sergeant. A Lieutenant assaulted a woman in a bar, in which Sergeant Young stopped and confronted the Lieutenant. They engaged in a fist fight, with charges brought upon the Sergeant. Luckily for Young, the woman who had been attacked proclaimed him as a hero and all charges were dropped.

Now Young has loyalty only to the other members of his squad and has only one doomed goal; keep them all alive at all costs, at the expense of his own life if need be.

Here's my character's skeleton I'll have a bio up shortly

Name Wade “Lt”  Reynolds
Age 30
Position in platoon/Rank Squad Leader (Lieutenant)
Personal History:
Wade was born on Earth, in New York City. Ever since he was a little boy, Wade always wanted to ‘be somebody.’ He was always thinking of ways to be a success and dreaming of the day that he could take action on them. During high school this drove him to achieve high grades in nearly every subject. And after high school it was a contributing factor in his decision to go to college for business management as opposed to many of the other fields available to him.
 
After college Wade attempted to start up his own cargo hauling company. He invested all his available funds into purchasing a run-down cargo hauler and trying to get contracts lifting cargo from the planet’s surface to the planet’s primary orbital facility, Gateway Station.  But sadly luck was not no his side and no matter how hard he tried he was unable to turn a profit on the business. Eventually he wound up selling the ship and shuttering his business.
 
Deeply in debt Wade needed a way out, it’s around that time that he go the idea to join the military. At the time it seemed like the perfect escape. He’d get meals and a bed for free as well as getting the hell away from the debt collectors breathing down his neck.  Hell, if he was lucky he’d even be able to find some out of the way colony to retire on and never even have to think about the money he lost on Earth. And so, at the age of 26
 
Given the fact that he entered with a higher education, and that he showed good leadership potential during basic training Wade qualified for OCS (Officer Candidacy School) after his first two years of service in The Corps.  When he was notified of this fact his old drive to ‘be somebody’ kicked back in and he jumped at the chance. Since then Wade has served as a squad leader in the USCM. He currently has a strong desire to make a career out of The Corps. With thoughts of eventual promotions to even higher ranks driving these ideas. Wade tends to take his responsibility for the lives of those under his command very seriously he has not yet realized that placing his soldier's lives as his top priority may not be his best path towards upper level command.

Name: Sanders

Age: 6

Position in platoon/rank: Synthetic (Model 342-F Serial number WY17/TR7.3.55548S3)

Personal history: Assigned to the squad for the past three tours Sanders, was a replacement for an earlier 341-B model that was destroyed in a training accident. She is designated support and has extensive programing in communications, the sciences, medical care, armoury of all Colonial Marines equipment, aero/space flight, psychology and administration. She provides what support she can to the squad without involving herself in combat situations. As a synthetic she is considered too valuble dollar wise to risk in open combat, though in the support role she is able to provide valuble aid to the squad.
She has a friendly if slightly reserved personality, a british accent and manner. She is prone to making off colour jokes though some of this is bleed through from living with the grunts for a while.

They could be playful certainly. Active rivalry is unlikely as Sanders will be loathe to go near combat situations where Holt will be loathe not to.

Sanders is support, administration, communications, science and technical. She will be behind the scenes checking and testing. Certainly the two of them could work together while Holt isn't actively engaged in the fun dangerous stuffs.

Hey Urb, welcome back :)

Would it be possible to play a colonist who knows more than he appears to know?

The basic concept in a nutshell is a character who's parents were killed by a Predator on earth when he was a boy. He's spent his life since trying to hunt the hunters. He chases down every bogeyman story hoping it will lead him to what he seeks, and trying to peice together some pattern so he can predict likely places they might strike. Every such prediction has been a bust of course...until now. Whether it was brilliant deduction or random chance, he's about to find what he's been searching for...

Inside he can hide from harsh realities of war, while delivering pain up close to the enemy.
