I'm new here, and as an ex-military guy this should be easy for me to get into. I'll bite.
Name: Hans Ackerman
Vocation: Signals Operator
Shameless plug: I used to serve in the Singapore Armed Forces, and this is my army, bitches! xD
Short bio: Despite the Caucasian-sounding name, Hans is Asian, and nobody knows what his specific ethnicity is outside of those who have seen his files - he hardly talks about himself anyway. He was one of the richer, upper-class college students in the States until the war broke out, and he managed to evade the inevitable draft until the reinforced bunker his family bought and hid in collapsed from one too many bombing runs.
With nothing else to lose, he figured he'd rather bring the fight to the enemy instead of avoiding what he came to see as his duty. He walked into the nearest NRF premises and that was that.
The NRF found out about his halted education and immediately threw him into the Signals Institute for a crash course before the Institute itself was bombed out - some wiseguy trainee tuned into an actual CAS net and called for bunker busters onto his own coords as a gag.
By pure dumb luck, he managed to survive the war and with nothing else for him in civilian life, he re-enlisted when the opportunity came.
Hans likes to travel light, and deploy light, because the Integrated Systems Pack (ISP) he has to lug around as the squad's Signals Operator already weighs him down by quite a bit. All members can speak to each other and to Command on their individual sets, but it's possible only because of the ISP that acts as a relay when they're on foot.
Stance versus the standing orders:
Hans views the gangs with a dispassionate academic's perspective. He pities them, but only because they have degenerated into a subhuman state. Recalling the ideals of his home country that used to cherish 'Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness', he thinks that people have a right to that, too, so long as they are deserving of it. Subhumans are not people.
Just like how Hans does not talk about himself, neither does he about his sexual preferences. He is straight, and assertive when the situation calls for it: effective radiomen don't ask 'pretty please' when it comes to calling for CAS. On the flipside though, Hans has absolutely no limits when the opportunity shows itself. Bondage, hair-pulling, giving anal, mild strangulation... you name it.
