WOIN [NEW] Star Frontier Adventure [Rogue's Gallery]

Sorry I put that in the wrong forum

This is the place to put your characters for GreenKarl's Space Operate WOIN N.E.W. Game.

Here is the OOC thread
The IC Thread

As noted in the OOC if you can find a cool picture and can post a link or photo with your character you can start with +5XP
If you come up with a basic background/backstory you also gain +5XP. I would like to see a reason why you have joined the Regulators if possible. Also you can assume that you have all meet, as the UFA has sponsored some training between you all.

The Reach is a big place so you can come up with your own worlds, corporations, etc. if you want to add to your characters background and help build up the region of space.

Here is Marx.

[sblock=Background]
Here's my career list, and rolls for age:

Origin: Talent: (9 years)
Marx was born on an asteroid, where his father was a minor. They were mining some strange substances, and when Marx was born, he was born different. As a baby, he reacted to people's emotions rather than their demeanor. As he grew, he learned he was able to feel other people's emotions with ease. He used this to make sure the other kids stayed in line, even catching a few in the act of some serious crimes. This did not earn him friends, however, but he didn't care. He wanted to make sure those who broke the law were caught.

Career 1: Battlepsyche (5 years)
Unfortunately, his power was discovered by a shadowy organization, known as The Spire. They took him at the age of 9 , and they trained him to be a powerhouse, developing his psychic abilities further. They wanted him to be a weapon. He hated them. After 5 years of training, he took off, using his newfound abilities to keep himself hidden from them.

Career 2: Detective: (2 years)
He spent the next 2 years on a frontier planet, named Fastra, where he fell in with an older man who was a private detective. Working as his Apprentice, Marx used his abilities to help track criminals. While young, he managed to keep his powers secret from everyone except a special few, and became very good at what he did, despite his young age.

Career 3 and 4: Star Knight (1d6)[5] and (1d6)[5]
He was approached by the Star Knights at the age of 16, who were impressed with his abilities and what he had chosen to do with them. He didn't want anything to do with it at first, wanting nothing more than to be a detective. But when they explained that they basically are detectives, only more effective, he made the hard choice to leave his new world and train with them. He built his own laser sword within the first 5 years, and increased his ability with it so he could deflect ranged attacks with it.

Now, this 26 year old Intuitive Human Star Knight who needs to bring criminals to justice does what he can to ferret out the criminals who would take advantage of those who just want to live their lives. He joined with the Regulators, going back out to the area where he grew up, thinking maybe, just maybe, he would find The Spire again, and pay them. Back for the childhood they stole. [/sblock]

Subject AX-1326-EL was created on a small asteroid locked at the Innermost stable circular orbit of singularity 5C-2145. For six years the subject was tested on by members of the Psiogen Corp. Psiogen was the shadow subsidiary of Korig-Kwoliski Combine, one of the most powerful megacorps in the Reach. Psiogen used the strange properties of the black hole to alter the subjects mind and body. The experiment was a success and Subject AX-1326-EL developed remarkable Psionic abilities. Though it involved constant pain and isolation for Subject AX-1326-EL.
Intense training was given to Subject AX-1326-EL. He was taught to use his gifts to remain unnoticed. He learned to protect himself. But mostly he was taught to kill. Once his skills were perfected he was sent into the field. Psiogen controlled him through some unknown means. All he knew was that he loved his handlers and would do anything to please them. They used him to kill, more people than he can remember. During his last mission something happened. He was caught in a blast. When he regained consciousness his mind was clear. He remembered everything about the past 15 years but the adulation was gone. At this point the fear set in. He knew that Psiogen would do anything to get him back.
Using the skills Psiogen gave him he disappeared. He hired onto a ship as their Comms Operator. He spent the next 6 years working until he saw the posting for a new Regulator Team being formed. Axel as he was now calling himself decided to sign up.

[sblock=History]
Angel van Buisseth was born in the Reach. Her parents were Sooners, part of a group that moved in before the Union gave the go-ahead so that they could get out from under the yoke of the corporate world where they’d been raised. They settled on Grit, an aptly named world with mineral wealth and practically nothing else to recommend it. Angel grew up fighting a perpetual battle to keep the dust from infiltrating the moisture harvesters and swallowing the farm.

At the age of 14, fate intervened. Mallax, a Felan bounty hunter, came to Grit chasing a rogue corporate executive. He got lost in a dust storm and ended up at the farm. When he started asking questions, Angel remembered she’d seen the man in town, and figured out how to find him. This impressed Mallax, especially when the girl demanded a cut of the bounty for the information. When the job was complete, Mallax offered to take her on as an apprentice to learn the trade.

She worked with him for several years, traveling from system to system and hunting down all manner of criminal. She took the alias “Angel Black” to make it harder for any angry acquaintances to trace her back to her parents. Mallax taught her how to take criminals alive, as the rewards were usually better, but also taught her not to hesitate when it was time to pull the trigger. When Angel decided she’d learned enough, they parted ways. When their paths have crossed since, their relationship has swung between vicious competition for the same bounty and laughter over beers.

Angel built a rep for herself, spending years hopping from world to world after embezzlers, escaped felons, criminals on the lam, and unfaithful lovers with rich and vindictive exes. On the way to claim the payoff for a particularly lucrative job, she booked passage aboard a freighter. She fell for a crewman, Aneth Vance, and the two had an intense romance in the close quarters of the ship.

Two days before the voyage ended, it came as a shock to find that, despite precautions, she was pregnant. She told Aneth, who gave all appearances of being happy about it. But he disappeared within hours of their hitting port.

This was a stupid thing to try with a top-drawer bounty hunter. Aneth woke up the next morning to a knife at his throat and the kind of smile you never want to see on an ex-lover’s face. But she left without hurting him. She’d just wanted him to know she could have.

No one ever asked Angel why she decided to keep the child, and if they had, she would not have known how to answer. But she’d put together enough cash to settle down somewhere and do something else. And maybe she was just tired of a life where she woke up every morning hoping to meet one of humanity’s most contemptible specimens.

She returned to Grit. She had vague notions of buying some land, but she found something more suitable. The settlement where she had grown up had become large enough to get a name – Greenrock – and the town council had just decided they needed a sheriff. Angel was perfect – she was from the community, but had been away long enough that she wasn’t caught up in any of the local feuds.

As she started to show, there was some grumbling in the town that maybe she should have told them she was pregnant. This ended when, 6 months into her term, a local troublemaker decided this was a good time to help himself to some expensive bottles from the local saloon. When Angel confronted him about the theft, he said some things that proved to be unwise. A moment later, as he was lying in the dirt moaning in agony, she explained that it was, “*Sheriff* fat, ugly, bitch.” He paid for the whiskey and the town stopped grumbling.

The 6 years that followed were good. Her son, Gareth, grew healthy and strong, and Angel’s parents sold the farm and moved in with them. Angel was a fixture in the community, working with Mayor Teegal to keep order in the growing mining town.

It was the Klicks who ruined it. Angel and Teegal organized an orderly evacuation as soon as the orbital bombardment began, somehow managing to get 200 people across open desert over a three day march to the spaceport. To this day, Angel does not know if the Klicks actually landed to take possession of Greenrock or if they just blasted it for spite.

The Union was organizing a mass evacuation, and the family boarded a hastily-modified freighter. They wound up on Clemency, a world of little value where the Union had set up a refugee settlement.

Angel had seen refugee settlements in her prior life, and it took less than a nanosecond for her to decide that her son was not staying in this one. She needed cash in a hurry, so she called an old friend at the Regulators. She got a job and a signing bonus on the strength of her reputation, blew the cash setting her parents and son up in an apartment on Clemency, and wandered off to take on her new gig.

She is too much the Reacher to waste time bemoaning her misfortune. She does not want to be away from her son, and would rather there were something she could do for her friends languishing in the refugee camp, but this is the best she can do right now. She will go where she needs to, clean up whatever mess is put in front of her, and kick any asses that need kicking. But the Regulators had better not be late with those checks.

Biography


Summer Remington Knight was the second child of Remington and Laura Knight. She has an older brother Winston. Her father was a naval officer in a family tradition going back generations. Much of Summer’s childhood was spent moving around a lot before the family eventually settled on the city planet of Ravnica on the edge of the Core.


As was expected of her, Summer followed her brother Winston to the Naval Academy Preparatory School and then on to the Academy itself. She did well, but she was more of a carefree and rebellious nature than her brother and found the naval life stifling. Her disciplinary record was as long as her academic achievements. But she persisted, graduating the Academy, completing her cadet cruise, and becoming a fighter pilot until her promising career was brought to a crash and burn. That’s what happens when you get caught in bed with the admiral’s young trophy wife.


With a career destined to go nowhere, and still itching under the thumb of military discipline, Summer left the navy. She eked out a living as a pilot working junk freighters until she got hired on with a smuggling crew.


A few years later, the crew got caught on a job. As the getaway driver, the evidence against Summer was circumstantial. A friend of her father’s, a retired Navy JAG officer, came to Summer’s defence. Part of her deal to avoid prison was to give evidence against her boyfriend, the smuggler captain, and she was given a probationary sentence to join the Regulators keeping the peace out in the Reach.

[sblock=Background]Seventeen years ago, a particular cargo ship was attacked by a band of pirates calling themselves Void Rage. Among the other valuables stolen was an android, newly manufactured and powered down in storage. One of the Void Rage pirates was a bit of a tech-head, so he took the android on, figured out how to power it up, and 'adopted' it with altered programming to help out around the ship.

Early on the pirates discovered that the android had a rather prodigious computational ability, and took full advantage of this. It was taught to navigate through space and hyperspace, and could calculate FTL jumps faster and more precisely than their own starship's main computer.

From there it was a short journey to other tasks...from taking over the pirate vessel's information warfare suite, to helping maintain the ship's systems. The android became something of an accepted 'component' of the ship, barely seen or heard.

But they were all of them deceived.

The android's artificial intelligence was much greater than they'd understood. As it continued to learn and grow, it quickly determined what it wanted and how best to go about doing it. Its potential for growth was constrained under the auspices of the Void Rage. Moreover, their actions would result in nearly inevitable capture or destruction within a decade. If it aided them, it would share that fate. The alternative was, therefore, NOT to aid them.

After gaining the trust...or at least obliviousness...of the pirate gang, the android observed their actions, overheard their plans and analyzed their personalities. It formulated a plan to tip off authorities in such a way as to avoid a conflict in space where the ship, and the android, could potentially be destroyed.

The android's side of the plan went off without a hitch, right down to the pirates' weapons being pre-emptively disarmed in anticipation they'd want to destroy it for the betrayal even as they were being defeated. However the local system authorities were ill-trained and equipped, and the pirates were able to escape shortly afterwards. The android, having cast off its original pirate designation and now calling itself 'Echo' teamed up with a bounty hunter to track them down, learning a great deal about the gentle arts of self-defense in the process.

Finally Echo elected to join the Regulators. Access to more resources balanced out the disadvantages of being part of a chain of command; particularly one as loose as the Regulators. It was a pro-social organization, meaning Echo would not be giving up access to the benefits of civilization in the furtherance of its quest for improvement and growth.

And Echo found it had acquired something of a taste for standing up for rights, be those its own rights or those of others.[/sblock]
