Here is my guy. Hope he is not to over the top, my imagination went wild with stuff. I might even add more should my inspiration allow. Hope you like.
Oh and sorry if their are a lot of grammatical errors, I did not go through and edit my stuff really. I just was in an inspirational rush and wanted to post this tonight. And man... I wish this site had spoilers! >.< This app is just too big not to use them.
: Markus DavianRace
: Sub-Human (Metalark)Age
Markus is a fairly tall, 5'10”, and well built man; his physique is quite impressive and he boasts strength most would not guess for the size of his musculature. Like most of his race he has dark crimson red hair so dark it borders on being black in some lighting, though in normal daylight one can tell its a dark red. His eyes are a blazing golden orange and are full of intensity and passion. The last feature common with all of his race is his tanned slightly metallic colored skin.
When not wearing his power armor he dresses fairly casually, though, at times he dresses much more suave. Personality
: Most see only his dour battle hardened side but when not in a fight and when relaxing he can be decently pleasant to be around, especially if he wants to be. He does not hide who he is around the ladies but if he really wants a particular female he will play it nicer and smoother if he feels it will net him the woman. He respects women in and out of battle but can be a scoundrel never the less. All in all he is a man who can scrap with the best of them, and is a bit of a scoundrel with the ladies yet still respectful to them at the same time.
Outside of his armor, Markus is a skilled melee fighter, having picked it up during his war time experience and can hold his own in a fight. He prefers ranged combat but is not afraid of getting up close and dirty if need be. Background
When Markus was 18 he joined a group called the Augmenters who did exactly as their name implies, augmented themselves. They were into the whole idea of making themselves look different and not just through clothing. They used the ability to get permanent and functional augmentations to become something different. Markus had gotten several in what he calls a foolish time of his life, although he is not actually ashamed or aggravated with his choices though.
He got a tail, his most notable change, and some reflex modifications though he could only get the minor upgrades as the higher tier were strictly military grade. During his short time with the group he was always more reserved than some of his more outlandish compatriots and held back on the augments. Later on in life he would come to almost dislike his tail until he realized he could use it to please the ladies, so he kept it but keeps it low key and mostly wrapped around his waist. Time as an Engineer/Soldier
Later in life, as a more mature and grounded 20 year old Markus found he was a very skilled constructor of weapons and armor. This talent landed him a job with a highly respected weapons and armor manufacturer who took him aboard and had him design and create for them. This was a great job for him and garnered him a small fortune in a short amount of time as the company placed great value on his skill.
During this time he, however, discovered a love of combat and using the guns he made. He was drafted into a fairly large war which happened between Lark and a neighboring world. His skill was quickly recognized and he was placed in an elite team. Being the teams engineer was hard work but something he enjoyed. However, during his time in the conflict his personality changed. Like many others seeing all the carnage made him a bit darker inside, but not fully, and caused his more youthful exhuberance to fade for the most part. He no longer looked like a teenager, for his looks were youthful, now he looked more like a fighter. Days of Gray
During his days as a soldier he had earned the nick name, Gray Knight, for his sometimes ambiguous morals when fighting yet his constant compassion towards those in need, especially women. He by no means was a kind and compassionate man through and through, he actually was more a scoundrel and rogue but still just as often as not he would go out of his way to help a woman in trouble.
This nickname stuck with him when he was free from the army and decided to join up with a mercenary company to continue sating his new love of combat and his continuing ability to create.
Markus now spends his days on the move, mostly, going where the jobs and money are. During his free time he beds women, builds and refines weapons and armor, and visits his homeworld. Weapons and Armor
All of the weapons Markus uses are of his own creation. FCP Rifle (Focus Charged Pulse)
This rifle condenses energy particles to create a more focused and highly charged particle which is shot in a small pulse of energy. It impacts with great force and is quite lethal, one shot is more than enough to cut an unarmored foe in half or blow chucks off of their body.
The gun has several firing modes, single shot, semi-auto, auto, and gatling fire. Gatling fire mode can cause his gun to overheat after a bit, so he uses it mainly when he really wants to kill someone or needs a constant stream of energy for some reason.
: This is a secondary mode shot, fired from the second bottom barrel on his rifle. It is designed to cause a power spike in shielding, which either causes the shield to collapse or cut its energy charge by half or so. This mode uses more energy and thus he does not use it often, only when faced with a really annoying enemy. FCP Pistol
Same type as the rifle but not quite as strong. Does not have the Spike Charge secondary mode. Has single shot, semi-auto, and auto fire modes. Black Rose
This is his short sword, he made out of a black metal alloy which is quite strong. This rests in a sheath strapped behind his left shoulder. JPA Power Armor (Jet Pack Assisted)
Markus's suit of power armor is quite advanced, as would be expected from a man of his skill. He uses shielding and has installed a sophisticated Jet-pack in his suit. It is not modified to be a constant flight jet pack as he prefers a jump flight jet pack, and mainly because its energy usage is more efficient and self recharging; he can modify his jet-pack for a constant flight should he feel the need, though he cannot do this unless he has the proper equipment and time.
In each wrist section of his armor he has retractable blades which extend several inches out past his fist. They can be used to stab, slash, or even help him climb should he need them. In his boots, right above the ball of his foot is retractable blades as well used mainly for kicking out with.
His armor can withstand several direct hits from normal types of weapons, and can take a few hits from military grade, and as for custom weapons like his he has not felt safe testing it out as he knows how nasty some custom weapons can be made.
His gauntlets can become magnetized, thus he will never lose grip on his guns and or he can climb up metal surfaces. His boots and special spots on his armor are also capable of being magnetized; he uses the spots on his back to hold his guns in place. Helmet
: His helmet is linked to his brain via a connection to a device which sits over one of his temples. This allows him to see a tactical view of an area, no greater than his normal racial eyesight. It does not display enemy locations unless they are revealed on motion sensors or thermal heat detectors. This display serves mainly to allow him to 'see' the field in which he works in.
The helmet can allow for thermal viewing, enhanced night time vision, can block bright light such as from a flash bang. Shield 'Tower'
: This is a small device which is laid on the ground and emits a 6 foot tall wall of energy. It basically is an easy means of providing cover. Like all shields it will collapse after to much abuse but its power source is limited, but rechargeable, and will drain itself dry after about five or so minutes. Metalark
: The Metalark are humans who colonized a seemingly M-class planet, Lark, which was more than capable of supporting human life; they got their name from combing metamorphosis with the planets name Lark, Metalark. It was an ideal world and met with high praise and was quickly colonized. All went well, but after two generations, approximately 200 years people began noticing children being born with red hair, orange colored eyes, and a slightly metallic looking tanned skin. At first people thought it was freakish birth defects or a prank but soon it was found out some unknown compound in the atmosphere or water and food was causing the changes.
After much research it was discovered no ill effects came about from the changes, instead it seemed to only affect the genetic code which control outward looks, and it created a faster metabolism in Metalarks. They could process food faster and more toxic foods, though only marginally toxic foods; they by no means had the ability to digest highly poisonous of toxic foods. Deemed safe, people quickly began accepting the change as it was fast becoming the norm on the planet; almost every new born child was born with the new characteristics.
The planet Lark, however, despite being almost completely Earth like went through a period of complete darkness every 5 years and it lasted like that for a year. The native plant and animal life had adapted to survive the extreme cold and the lack of sunlight, and so to did the Metalark, eventually. Their bodies slowly acclimated to where they could withstand temps on average 10-20 degrees colder than the average human could and they gained a measure of dark vision. It was limited to about a football fields length; though with certain technology it can be enhanced to like that of a normal humans “to the horizon” vision during daylight. Lark
: Lark is essentially a Earth like paradise. The world has a substantial population akin to that of the 21st century Earth, but its infrastructure is advanced as any other advanced world. The planet has a fairly strong tourist industry but the world to industrialists who wish to plunder its resources. Larkian government is not incredibly Eco-sensitive but they do realize its necessary to keep as much as they have without just leveling it all in a mad rush for wealth and resources.
Lark in the past several years was involved in a war with a neighboring planet, Ducon, which lasted only two years with Lark the victor. Ducon tried to bully their way into allowing Lark to allow companies onto their world so they could mine the resources Lark possesses, but Lark would have nothing to do with it and so Ducon tried to force the issue but underestimated the Larkian military and Ducon paid the price.
