Bruiser, heavily modifiedBio:
Tankred was born in an upper class family in the Canada before the fall. He joined that country's military and served for a time, but he eventually departed that service and joined the Ultimates. The notion of self-improvement and personal excellence appealed to the man, and he found many like minds in the group. During the Fall, Tankred saw action against the TITANs on Earth and Luna, although he is not one of the Rajput - Tankred fell during the Ultimates' action on Luna, but his stack was retrieved by a member of his unit and Tankred was subsequently resleeved. The brutality he witnessed on the part of his fellows has deeply disquieted him, however, Tankred will not betray the things he witnessed to anyone outside of the Ultimates.
After the Fall, Tankred severed in various mercenary actions throughout the system, finding challenge on the battlefield. Tankred has taken part in a few Ultimate Gatecrashing operations, and he enjoyed the challenge of extra-solar environments to test his mettle, but it was never a permanent fit for him. He fought against exhumans on Eris, but did not remain longer the necessary to receive qualification as a Purifier. The Overhumanists were profoundly distasteful to him; Tankred considered their attitudes dangerously close-minded and not conducive to the path of self-improvement the Declaration called for. If Tankred falls into any faction, it is the Iconics: those who believe the Ultimates should lead by example and engage with transhumanity to gain converts.
After his stint on Eris Tankred decided to go on a journey alone. He wanted to test himself and his commitment to Ultimate ideals. It is easy to hold to a philosophy when surrounded by like minds. But how would that belief endure among the rest of transhumanity? Postive Traits:
Pain Tolerance (2), Tough (3)Negative Traits:
Black Mark (Exhuman), Identifiable Quirk (Canadian Accent)Likes & Ons:
Melee kills. Machine guns and armour-piercing ammunition. Tankred enjoys order and a clearly delineated hierarchy of individuals. His sexual tastes are vanilla and pedestrian.Dislikes & Offs:
Tankred dislikes sleeving in female morphs and has an aversion to Furies because they tend to be female. He would prefer a pod to a female Fury, or a synthmorph. He dislikes slavery and indentures because they restrict the potential of the individual (Tankred has difficulty reconciling this with the notion that a 'worthy' individual would free themselves by their own abilities). The Titan model of providing morphs to all, regardless of their consent to participate in society, is particularly galling to Tankred. Sexually Tankred dislikes anything involving mutilation, waste, or a lack of consent. As a deep, dark personal secret: Tankred isn't all that fond of the Remade. He's aware of the advantages it possesses, but the morph just doesn't fit his aesthetics.
