Hello everyone. I stumbled onto this post and must say I am very interested as I am a fan of both the tragically short-lived Firefly, and Stargate. I was hoping, if it's not too late, there could be room for another fighter? No reason a ship should be limited to only one, right? I mean, Serenity had Mal, Zoe, and Jayne. Anyway, if it's not too late and you're open to the idea, I submit my character below for your approval.Disclaimer: I am still very new to Elliquiy AND I am very rusty since I last role played some 10 years ago ... but when I did play I was always told I was good? Name:
Griffin "Griff" KingstonAge:
BlackPlanet of origin:
Griff is 6'1" tall and weighs 227 lbs. He is in peak physical condition and he regularly works out to keep it that way. His light gray eyes are in stark contrast to his dark skin which can be either disarming or unnerving, depending on one's perspective. He keeps his head and face shaved as time permits, however there is often a days worth of dark stubble covering both. He has elaborate tribal tattoos on both upper arms and shoulders.Clothing:
Whenever Griff is NOT wearing his assault vest and web gear, which is not often, he wears darker colored t-shirts or a-shirts. He always wears dark military trousers and black combat boots. When the weather demands, he wears a dark military field jacket under his assault vest and web gear. Equipment:
Griff's shoulder sling holster holds his Colt. 45 DX pistol and in the modern holster at his right hip is the PK12 Peacekeeper. Griff also still has the standard issue AR 24 S assault rifle that the Alliance issued him, and he whips out when the situation demands. His assault vest and web gear hold extra clips of ammo for all weapons he has with him at the time. He also carries a standard communication device.History:
Griff was born and raised on Londinium. His mother died when he was 12 and his father, Colonel Raziel Kingston, was a career officer in the Alliance military. Unable to dedicate the necessary time to raise his son, Col. Kingston sent Griff to live with his aunt. Griff dreamed of joining the Alliance and becoming a Fed. like his father and as soon as he was old enough, he enlisted. He loved every second of basic and excelled in specialized training, scoring top marks in unarmed combat, weapons training, and explosives. He was the model soldier, and quickly attained the rank of Sergeant.
However, as the Unification War progressed, he found himself at odds with the Alliance's doctrine and the interpretation and application of its laws. After a series of insubordinate acts including several open disagreements with his superiors, repeatedly disobeying direct orders, and then finally culminating in aiding "Browncoats" who were in dire need of medical aide, Griff was to face a Court Marshall, despite his father's best efforts on his behalf. Before he could be brought in, Griff abandoned his post and has been a fugitive on he run ever since, wanted for treason, among other things.Persona:
Griff is very confident in his abilities, to the point where he is border-line cocky. He knows what he is capable of and doesn't allow anyone to dictate otherwise. He also knows what he is NOT capable of, but that doesn't stop him from trying. Griff has a cynical and sarcastic sense of humor and can come across as a smart ass at times, especially to those who aren't familiar with him. His military background and training governs his work habits, and he's good at what he does. While he is loyal to his friends, there are few he considers "friend." His motto is "The mission before the man."
