Name: Gunnery Sergeant Noah Drake
Occupation: Prison Guard (Lethal Response Team)
Species: Human (Cyborg)
Drake enlisted early in the Federation Marines, following a proud family tradition of service. Driven by overwhelming pressure to succeed, he gained top marks and was quickly picked out for duty as an Infiltrator - recon and assassin work behind enemy lines. The euphoria of success, however, ended quickly: Drake went to service through a variety of bloody conflicts, where he learned quickly how thin the line was between combat and murder. Instead of glory, he found himself a monster forced to kill on command. He'd just voiced his intention to retire to private life when tragedy struck: a friendly fire mortar landed near his position, killing his partner and nearly ending Drake's life as well. Months of surgery and recovery replaced much of his skull, left arm, legs, and several internal organs with cybernetic enhancements. Announced a success, he came out far stronger, faster and more deadly than his biological form allowed.
However, the mental trauma was becoming obvious. Therapy seemed to help, but on medical advice he was rotated off the front lines to a post considered simple and relaxing: the Lethal Response Team of an out of the way prison colony, where training was the most stressful thing he was likely to see. This didn't work out as hoped. Drake continued to spiral into paranoia and violence, becoming convinced the attempt on his life and his new equipment were the military's design to keep him as their tool. The plan to aid the prisoners in an escape, overthrowing the garrison and fleeing Federation space, seemed logical and inevitable. The only surprise was how much he enjoyed hunting down his former comrades....
Abilities: Drake's enhancements make him faster and stronger than any normal human; he has multi-spectrum vision that is capable of low light and heat vision. He has significant skills in stealth, marskmanship and intrusion. His pride and joy is a small experimental psychic cloaking device built into his cybernetics; it amplifies his natural talents to allow a few useful tricks: he can speak to another person telepathically, and trick them into not seeing him, or seeing him as someone completely different.
