SinglePrevious (Or current) Profession:
There is a series of long scars on his back and chest from shrapnel he encountered in combat. They range from small scars to long cuts to just dots along his ebony colored skin.
Killian thinks of himself as a good guy, as a person that feels like he is responsible for too many things. Yet it is this trait that he feels makes him a good soldier as well as a good leader. He has seen combat, strife, and personal hardship from several angles. This makes him very understanding to other people's positions. Yet, this is also a fault as he may over think things along with taking people's failures, especially under his command, as his own.Background:
[Three good paragraphs] Killian was born in a bad part of Los Angeles, learning about gang life from when he could barely walk. Both of his parents worked long hours to allow him to go to school and get an education. Yet still, he ended up getting jumped into a gang at 13. For a long time, all he did for them was transport things and occasionally rough up some rival gang members. But his cousin, who happened to be in a leadership position in the gang did not see it fit to make him live up to the Killer nickname he had been given. Instead, he felt Killian needed to learn how much of a family his fellows were before he ultimately needed to kill for them. Killian grew to see his gang as his family after he felt abandoned by his parents.
Yet, when he finally did kill for the gang at 16, he got caught for stealing just a few blocks away. Killian had a slight record but nothing of such an extreme. The police asked him to rat out his gang, but he refused. Juvenile hall was his home for two years released back onto the streets that had put him there. After getting no support from his gang and his parents having been there for him through the whole ordeal, he knew bad choices were made. At the recommendation from his father, he entered into the Navy.
The Navy is no real easy place, nor was it supposed to be. Killian before he went into the Navy had not been the most disciplined person, yet through it he learned to be a better more disciplined man. Eventually, he got dropped into combat where he found it much easier to kill for not just his brothers in arms, but his country. Yet, it left a sour taste in his mouth. Killian never paid for the life he took for the gang. To think he put someone down who did not deserve it. Those he killed fought with the intent to kill him, yet she never really saw it coming until the moment the trigger got pulled. Killing never became pleasurable for him. It became something he did to keep people safe. To protect people like the one he killed in cold blood.
After a decade of war, his heart became hardened his mind every more sharp than when he became a SEAL. Now he lead his own squad, tracking down and eliminating the country's issues before they became crises. Yet a mission came around in a hot zone. Killain and his squad engaged the hostiles in their building going fast and quietly as they could. About halfway through the sweep, Killian and crew came upon a room where a man stood holding a woman with a grenade in his hand. Just as he saw them, the hostile popped the grenade. Hoping to save his squad and the woman, he ran at the two. One of the riflemen in his squad already popped a shot in between the hostile's eyes, the rest for Killian was whited out.
Next thing he remembered was awakening in a hospital bed surrounded by his men. Not too long after that, he got honorably discharged being awarded a couple medals to boot. Coming home, he had a long road of recovery to go through both psychological and physical. Even now, he still awakes in the middle of the night in a cold sweat still thinking he is in that room with the grenade. Symptoms:
Portal Generation: SL - 1 - The deviation is able to summon a "portable" black hole roughly the size of a softball in diameter. The weight stored within may not exceed 25 lbs. Items are "called" with thought, and appear in hand to be removed.Hobbies and Interests:
Militaristic Discipline: Killian does all he can to maintain his regiment of exercise, gun training and diet. Not that he is worried about being redeployed, yet he feels this keeps him from falling into the darker corners of his mind.
Reading: He commonly reads all sorts of fiction, ranging from novels to comics. Not having duties to do, he likes to take his time acquiring knowledge when he is not at work. Other Info
Post-Traumatic Syndrome still effects him at times where a loud noise or too fast of a movement in a strange place could cause a violent or militaristic reaction. He still is quite anxious about ever turning his back to new people.
The grenade did extensive damage to his torso that is not completely repaired, so there is occasional muscle weakness even given his very muscular physique. Many of his scars are sensitive to the touch where the tissue is weaker than the areas surrounding it. Yet for the most part he has not dealt with them opening up.
