IRON FIST: GENESIS
Following the failure of my first two attempts to run this as a group RP, Amazon and I chose to do a one-on-one story, detailing how Anne and Nikki met.
We held off starting a new group game until the one-on-one had reached a point at which we felt the story was now complete.Please read this thread
, as it will give you insight into how Anne and Nikki work together, although the actual plot is going to be radically different.Characters

Please think of this as being like an application form for a job. If you are applying for the role of Sys-op, for example, you need to convince me that your character is suitable for the role, by giving him/her appropriate skills in hacking, appropriate modifications, and appropriate experience.
Equally, you need to prove that your character is ruthless enough!

And a completed example...Player:
Major Anne Laughton Actual Age:
5'5" tall, 34B,25,34. Weight 122 Lbs. Long dark hair, slightly olive coloured skin revealing a Latin bloodline. No piercings. Has a tattoo on her upper left arm of the 22 SAS Regiment's coat of arms.Nationality:
English, some FrenchModifications:
British Special Ops military grade cranial implant, with full command and control functions, stealthy IFF, a full terabyte of RAM. Her implant has remote targeting software for artillery or air strikes, full stealthy GPS, small-arms targeting. Cranial Interface USB Socket. Military grade palm interface pad on her right palm. This enables weapons with the correct hand grip to interface directly to her implant without the need for a vulnerable cable or jam-able blue-tooth link. The technology is experimental though and is not as accurate as the more tried methods of interfacing. Eyes modified to see radar or infra-red. Cannot see both at once. Also, cannot see visible light while in either mode.
Because her implant is a special-ops one, it is untraceable even by the people who made it. This is a security feature because should her superiors be compromised, the ability to track her would compromise her also. Of course this means that, having left the fold, her implant is untraceable by those she left.Specific skills and abilities:
Field commander of elites Special Ops commando unit. Excellent tactician. Crack shot with pretty much any weapon. Skilled in all forms of unarmed combat.Weapons and/or equipment:
Anne carries a Glock 21 9mm Smart Pistol with integrated camera sights. She also carries a large hunting knife and an SAS issue Swiss Army Knife with the "Who Dares Wins" logo on it. She also carries a Kalashnikov AK-252 Smart Assault Rifle, with built in laser range finder and target illumination, capable of firing normal (conical hollow point), explosive and fletchette rounds.Weakness:
Can be over-confident at times, is far too sure of her own abilities. Has a temper.Personality:
A normally very competent commanding officer. Can be impatient with those around her. Has been known to loose her temper on occasions. Ruthless and highly motivated. Will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Callous and uncaring of others. Can at times be over-confident. Expects nothing less than 150% from herself and from those under her command.Bio:
Major Laughton joined the British Army at 18, going to Sandhurst Military Academy and passing out with top marks in everything. She applied for and was accepted into the Parachute Regiment. The war in South Africa saw her distinguish herself in combat, and even though the Southern African Union won and British forces were pulled out, she remained behind with her company to harass the enemy for several weeks before making her way to the coast for pick-up.
This brought her to the attention of the SAS, who transferred her from the Paras, upgraded her implant and promoted her to Captain, and finally to Major.
However a change in government in the UK as the world situation deteriorated into anarchy suddenly meant that the British army, and in particular the elite units, were to be cut back. Sensing that she was about to be betrayed by the country she had fought for, Anne Laughton went AWOL, taking a good deal of hardware with her, not least being what was in her head.
She had her appearance altered, reducing her apparent age and lightening her skin slightly, giving her a more innocent look. She remains on Britain's most wanted list, but is careful to stay under the radar. The lack of any real law enforcement and the virtual disbanding of military forces into private armies funded by rich individuals meant that she has so far escaped capture.
Anne is 45. She joined the army at 18. Graduated and joined the Paras. After the war in South Africa she was promoted Captain and transferred to the SAS.
When the war between Nepal and China broke out and the SAS were committed in secret to aid the Nepalese, operating behind Chinese lines high in the Himalayas. This one, we won, mostly due to terrain. The war lasted three months. Anne was promoted to Major.
The Malay government asked for help from the British and Australian governments to assist in putting down an anarchist revolt. Drawing on their experience in the 1960s, both failing powers committed their special forces to the war, which dragged on for nearly four years. When the British government changed, the Anarchist party achieving second place and forming a coalition with the Democratic Socialists. The troops were pulled out of Malaysia and the SAS was disbanded, and Laughton went AWOL.
