*Updated with potential Mech info*CharacterName:
26 BattleMech: Homeworld:
Tortuga PrimeOriginal Faction:
Standing 5í10 and weighing 150 lbs Hector is not what you would call muscular. He is very fit though. His wild unkept hair is in sharp contrast to his well manicured mustache. He tends to dress in an odd mix of suit style clothing accentuated with roguish jackets with heavy leather boots. Unlike many arrogant pilots he carries himself in a nonchalant manner and tends to not draw attention till he wants it.Background:
Hector was born into a life that few would envy and fewer could crawl out of. His father was a technician for a mercenary group and when no one was looking Hector would sneak into the cockpits and pretend he was a mech warrior. That was never going to happen though, or so he thought. The pilots would have killed him just for climbing the mech let alone setting in it. They were elite, they were almost nobility as it were and Hector was an oil rat. Years went by and Hector signed on with the mercenaries doing crap work for a paycheck but at least once a week he would sneak down and practice in the cockpits learning what it took to be a mech pilot. His chance came when one of the pilots jumped out of his bunk and ended up cracking his head on the bunk when he landed funny. Out cold Hector pushed him back into his bed and took his pilot suit. They were halfway into the mission before it became clear he wasnít who he was suppose to be. Thankfully he proved himself well and for that he was just flogged unconscious instead of killed. The team leader saw his potential and admired his guts giving him a shot a year later as a recon pilot. When the wars came again though everything went down hill. The group was bankrupt and after a few desperate jobs that were too damn risky Hector found himself the last real pilot they had. Now he sells himself as best he can for transportation and drop fees looking for another group that will take a chance on him.Personality :
Hector is a scoundrel and he delights in it. He wants you to know he has a checkered past and that theres more mystery in his hair than in your entire profile. He delights in misdirection telling bull shit stories as easy as the truth which he mixes readily. Enjoying to cause trouble but not one to fight. Hes a ladies man but not a lecher. Hes loved every woman hes ever been with and recalls them with fondness and gratitude. In combat he looks for the angles and prefers to have his enemies make the first move so he can exploit it. Specialty Skills:
Streetwise: Hector has extensive underworld contacts and knows the black market as well as criminal organizations mentality.
Scavenger: His underworld contacts and natural scrounging ability has made Hector a man to find what your looking for.
