Is there still room for a male character? I'd like to jump in if there still is.

There most certainly is.  :-) Feel free to go ahead and submit a sheet!

Awesome! I will take a good look at the characters presented so far and give it some good thought before making a character sheet. :D

Here goes nothing, let me know if you all think adjustments need to be made.

Marcus Turner
Name: Marcus Turner

Age: 25

Gender: Male

Place of birth: Memphis TN

Physical description and picture:
Marcus stands between five feet eleven inches and six feet tall and weighs around two hundred and ten pounds. His hair is normally kept in a low cut and his facial hair is known to change quite frequently, ranging from clean shaven to full blown beard depending on his mood. Most of the time he dresses in what could be described as business casual while out in town. Otherwise, you’ll probably find him in a wife beater and some basketball shorts.

Skills: Close Quarter Combat specialist with expertise in Muay Thai, Explosives Expert, Self-Proclaimed Student of War and Master of Disguise

Personality: Marcus’ personality can be somewhat confusing as he jumps from all seriousness to full blown play in the blink of an eye. In battle, especially hand to hand combat, he is ruthlessly violent, often causing “unnecessary damage” which he doesn’t really understand when his life is on the line. At other times, he’s normally calm and thoughtful but with a fun side and has been known to be sort of a conspiracy theorist. Marcus considers himself a lover of two things, fine whiskey and fine woman. 

Character background: Born in Memphis TN, Marcus moved to live with his mothers only brother in Richmond, Virginia at the age of seven. Marcus enlisted in the United States Army at the age of 17, with enthusiastic legal guardian consent and a warning to always think for yourself. Soon, he found out that thinking for yourself was not always an easy thing. Army life proved to fit Marcus well. The discipline, the commitment to physical training and always bettering yourself, camaraderie and love for your country made Marcus proud to be a soldier and it showed. He excelled and was promoted at a pretty fast rate. He, along with a couple of his closest friends, deemed themselves the A-Team, indeed after the movie, and pushed their platoon to be the best they possibly could.

His life changed in January 23rd 2007.

The A-Team were amongst the first, after the Marines, to put boots on the ground in Iraq when the massive influx of soldiers happened. An assistant squad leader at the time, he was in charge of making some very tough decisions while serving in the desert. Once tasked with getting information from citizens about the movements of Al-Qaeda in the area his Lieutenant, some young hotshot out of West Point, ordered him to torture the women so that the men might share what information that they knew while his squad leader was away. He refused. Marcus managed not to get in serious trouble for his insubordination but it put a bad taste in his mouth and he began to question why they were there in the first place. Unfortunately, for him, his squad leader was Killed in Action the following week and he had to assume command of his squad.

Marcus got out as soon as he could, receiving an honorable discharge at the rank of Sergeant First Class for his service in Iraq. He was proud, but not as proud as he would have been. He saw his additional promotion as a pacifying move for the Army. Marcus still loved his country, but he was done playing by “the rules” because he finally realized that there were no rules. That’s when The Division found him.

Here's my character. Lemme know if it needs reworking or anything.


Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

Name: Lucian Black

Age: 30

Gender: Male

Place of birth:  United Kingdom

Physical description and picture: Standing five foot ten inches, Lucian has a sleek, athletic build and an aristocratically handsome face. His dirty blonde hair is kept short and slicked back more often than not. He has piercing blue eyes. Lucian has a impeccable style of dress, regardless of whether or not he is at work or play.

Skills: Silver tongued, negotiator, quick on his feet, expert in sleight of hand and distraction, commendable prowess with knives

Personality: Lucian is all smiles and charm. He is eloquent and well spoken, a gentleman from ages past. He enjoys quick wit and dark humor, even in the midst of tense and serious situations. It all seems like one big joke to him at times. Yet he can turn all of it off in a second and become serious and sensible (usually when the job calls for it). He loves to socialize, to smoke and drink and play poker – he has one hell of a poker face. Yet for all his outgoing, jovial ways, he rarely ever speaks of himself or his past. And when he does, who actually knows what is truth or fiction?

Character background: Lucian was at his core a liar with a heart of gold. He grew up the middle child in a middle class family in the middle of England. His childhood was uneventful and without tragedy. Being the neglected middle child left him with a sense of angst and a yearning to prove. He joined the British Army as soon as he was old enough. Despite his flair for rebellion he found the strict discipline a welcome change, albeit briefly. Lucian was made for more subtle endeavors, it wasn’t long before he changed career paths when he was recruited by MI6. All was going well till he was assigned to undertake an operational on American soil.

It was his first taste of power, though perhaps a better word for it was corruption. Lucian started to do things his superiors didn’t like, cutting corners and thinking dangerously outside the box. But it was all for the greater good, or at least that was what he told him. It didn’t take long before Lucian got in over his head and things got out of hand. He left his letter of resignation pinned to the shirt of the man they sent after him to ‘clean up’. Instead of disappearing Lucian did the only thing he thought logical, he switched sides. He worked for several intelligence agencies as a freelance operative before being approached by The Division. The offer was too good to resist. Perhaps here he could do some good for once. He still had something to prove.

Hi there! I will stop accepting character submissions this Thursday, with a view to starting on Friday.

As for the posts, I would say maybe three paragraphs or more. It would be hard to set an exact length, and I wouldn't want someone to write just for the sake of writing. All I ask is for everyone to give the next person enough to go on.  :-)

Holly Roberts
Name:  Holly Roberts

Age: 23

Gender:  Female

Place of birth:  Petawawa, Ontario (Canada)

Physical description and picture: Standing at 5’2 and curvy, Holly looks like a rather pretty but plain woman. Straight, dark hair bounces at her shoulders. Pale green eyes and softly shaped lips over straight white teeth. Her smile can both dazzle and terrify.Prefers to dress in a way that makes her look sweeter than she is, finding cute clothes make for a better surprise attack.

Skills: Deadly shot with a handgun but prefers to fight hand to hand. Holly fights dirty. Near perfect accuracy when throwing knives, also a favourite way to pass the time. Strangely can not pitch well in baseball but can wield a bat, preferring the lighter aluminum bats for a faster, harder swing.

Personality: Erratic at best. Has issues with paranoia and therefore prefers to not involve herself in a group, assuming everyone is talking about her. Seemingly awkward and reserved, she will often stay a short distance from the group, observing and sometimes laughing out of the blue at things said that aren’t particularly funny.  The next instance she will appear the helpless waif, her small frame hiding the strength within. Whether the numerous strange behaviours are true personality quirks or part of a faked persona for any number of reasons.

Character background: Holly, named Holland for her mother’s nationality was born on the Canadian Forces Base Petawawa. Her father was permanently stationed in Petawawa after Holly came to be. At her father’s side she was taught to shoot and handle herself in fights from a young age. Strangely she did not suit nor enjoy martial arts training but preferred to use tricks and intimidation when sparring with anyone who would try her.

Struck out on her own at the age of 18, first across Canada to the West coast, picking up skills and knowledge as she went, like a sponge for information that fed her need for violence and excitement. Became very skilled at disguising herself taking on very different personalities, each disguise a richly developed character of their own, some with slightly different skills than Holly herself.

Traveling back from West to East and having caught the eye of the Division as she performed increasingly risky jobs as a free agent.  Her reputation was becoming known in the word of mouth world of special agents and spies.

Is there still a spot free? I would be interested in coming up with a character if you still have a vacancy.
