Description: About 5’10”, Brian actually weighs a bit less than one might guess given his height and profession because he is made up of lean muscle. He’s trained himself for endurance and speed rather than bulk strength. He maintains the ghost of a goatee and a samurai-style topknot. Due to its design, he pretty much constantly wears his cybersuit, seeing as it acts like a second skin. Usually, though, he leaves the helmet off, unless he’s working. The entire suit of armor is normally turned to matte black, but switches to its chameleon mode when appropriate on a job.
Background: Brian was born under another name on a former corporate colony. When the company went under, a variety of criminal organizations moved in and took over. The colony, he refuses to give its name, quickly became a hive, but one that the galaxy’s governments found useful . . . after all, spies from different nations need neutral places to meet, spies from the same nation need secure drop points, and the higher ups in many governments have, refined, tastes that can’t be met with licit goods. Street wars and covert black ops, shadow wars, were common on the planet by the time Brian was born. Neither of his parents were involved directly, although everyone was indirectly involved. But, his family wasn’t well off either, because they weren’t involved. By the time he was thirteen, Brian was running messages for a House. They were the kind of thing that couldn’t be trusted to potentially compromised comm systems. By sixteen, he was scouting targets for House enforcers. By eighteen, he was an enforcer himself, infiltrating rival Houses and leaving silent, or not-so-silent, messages. Something was lacking, though. When he got the chance, Brian left his homeworld for the stars. He was picked up by a minor mercenary company that only did specialized covert ops, mostly for companies. They broke up a few years ago, once the founder retired and didn’t leave a clear succession. And that, as they say, is how he ended up with Fersarlik.
