Lieutenant Sam Arkwright, Maczarek Security

Details
Age: 43
Height: 6’
Weight: 170lbs.

Appearance
A tall, slim Slavic man with very short black hair, a large nose and a stern look which is usually balanced by a smile.

Biography

Sam Arkwright was born on Persephone in 2476. His ancestry was half-British, half Serbian, resulting in his accentual mixture and his Slavic appearance.

His early life was fairly unexceptionable. The first time he killed someone was defending his then girlfriend, Amy Trent, at the age of 19. Two weeks later, they married. They had one child, who died at the age of two from cot death.

When the Unification War broke out, Arkwright joined up with his wife on the side of the Independents. Both trained as snipers and became known as the "Arkwright Pair", taking out a number of senior Alliance officers. During one of the later assignments, Amy was captured. She was subsequently executed and the body hung in public. Before joining up, they'd agreed that if either died, the other would wait five years before trying to find someone else. Arkwright did so.

After the war, Arkwright turned mercenary. After a few jobs on various ships, he was hired as security chief on Firefox, by its captain, Jane Truman. Firefox was a Firefly-class vessel, based out of Greenleaf. He drilled the crew in weapons and allocated duress codes to the crew for use in emergencies.

The crew spent a happy and exciting two years together, running cargo, having a few close shaves and once saving Rachel Lawrence’s life. Until a trip to Persephone. During an evening out in a bar in the slums of Persephone, Jane got into a fight with a man named Simon Price, a fight that ended up going into a storeroom. Two shots were heard and by the time Sam and the others could get into the room, Simon was lying dead with Jane standing over him. Erica, his widow, immediately swore revenge on the whole crew and only the intervention of the barman stopped a full-blown firefight.

From then on, the crew were on the run. However, one of them (David) was a traitor and communicated their next destination, Higgins’ Moon, to Erica and her gang. Three of the crew went to a cargo drop off, which was an ambush. Erica realised that Jane wasn’t present and got Sarah (another crew member) to call her over. Sarah used her duress code, but got spotted by Erica, who executed all three of them (David had outlived his usefulness).

Jane and Sam took off in Firefox, heading for St. Michael, but were overtaken by Erica’s ship. She disabled the engines. Jane decided to sacrifice her life to allow Sam a chance to escape.

Sam headed for St. Michael and briefly worked as Deputy to the Sheriff there, before ending up on another vessel, which shall remain nameless to protect the guilty. He parted ways with the vessel and its crew after the captain brutally murdered a customs officer for no good reason.

After a few weeks moping around, he saw a recruiter for Maczarek Security. He signed up and went through the officer training course, graduating as a Lieutenant due to his previous strong experience. After briefly spending some time supervising security at the Waterworld casino on Persephone, he has arrived at Greenleaf Skyplex with five squads of Eagles to take over security at the facility after Maczarek won the tender.

Personality

A fundamentally nice and decent man, although do not push him. He is considered incorruptible and honest; perhaps too much so.

Re: Ident Control - Applications

Personal Information:
http://oi51.tinypic.com/2qd3jad.jpg
Name: Public: Josie Holliday    Legal: Stephanie Seagrave
Place of birth: Londinium
Gender: Female
Age: 35
Height: 5’7”
Weight: 110 lbs
Eye colour: hazel
Hair colour: natural color brown, but it’s rarely it’s natural color
Rank/Profession: Poker Player/Army Intelligence
Known Relatives: Stan Seagrave, mechanic on Londinium
Demeanour: Eccentric, quirky, but terribly quick with numbers. Josie might come off as strung out on too many drops, living a party-until-you-drop lifestyle, but those who play her at the card tables know she’s incredibly sharp.

Motivation: The only way to get into the seedy underbelly of this Skyplex was to fit in, perfectly. It took years to develop the persona, the strange and eccentric card player who wore outrageous costumes and to win enough tournaments that a casino would hire her as the house poker player.
Quote: “ Listen, here's the thing. If you can't spot the sucker in the first half hour at the table, then you ARE the sucker” – Mike McDermott, Rounders

Background

Stephanie joined the military because evidently being a card shark was illegal.  She was the juvenile delinquent with the highest grades in her alternative school. Bright, but unfocused, she excelled at statistics and math. In fact she had been running the betting pool on football for years that her father had started way back when her mother ran off in order to put some extra money in their pockets. Stephanie was way better at it than her father; when the authorities got wind of it they realized a fifteen year old girl was running a felony level illegal betting ring. They shut down the peripheral operations, but kept an eye on the mechanics daughter as she blarged her way out of trouble time and time again. When she was eighteen, they made her an offer of full scholarship and being set for life if only she would sign on the dotted line.

Military intelligence saw the type of person they wanted – a person who lacked focus and purpose, but not intelligence.  Stephanie was put through not just basic training, but a series of special classes designed to train her mind to think for tactical situations and to build on her already uncanny ability to run odds in her head. As she excelled she was further trained in disguise and espionage.  Once her training was complete, Stephanie had lost her accent which placed her in the East Londinium neighborhood, only adopting it if she  and she could walk like the finest ladies on Shinon if she had to.

The Unification War might have tested others faiths. Not Stephanie. In her world view, a product of Core prejudice and reinforced by seeing the worst of the Rim worlds, the only thing the Independents were fighting for was a right to be able to have crime barons run their lives and have the ability to marry their cousins. It perhaps was a coping mechanism used for her government sanctioned acts of terrorism of infiltration and assassination.

She did not fight in Serenity Valley, but she can give you the full dissertation on why both sides made tactical errors. Needless to say few ask for her opinion.

This newest identity for Stephanie was one she developed in order to track down escaped ‘people of interest’ in the Verse. A professional poker player with a flare for the dramatic, the theatrics of strange outfits and outrageous behavior give the public a bit of showmanship and act as a cover for her real purpose for being on the Skyplex – that is tracking down individuals of interest to the Alliance. For now her mission is to simply observe and to not break her cover.

For those who watch the Professional Series of Poker, Josie Holliday is a familiar figure. She’s known for having come from Santo, the only child of a Ron Holliday who is often seen, her tiny balding dad cheering in the background. Ron of course is actually Josie’s superior in the army, Ron Whitfield and her monthly packages to him are actually coded messages in which she passes on intelligence.

Allies:
Ron Holliday, known publicly as her father, but who is another member of the Alliance Intelligence office.

Tomas Blaine, Casino owner, the one who hired her as the house poker player to draw others to play.  He is not aware of her true identity.

*Space for one more...

Associates:
(Jason W - let me know if this is ok? I figure the house poker player who likes to party would know the band)

Jonathon (Jonny) Mathewson, guitarist and gambler. He's usually the sucker at the table that Stephanie plays at.

Christoper (Chris) Peterson, drummer and life of the party. You can bet that Josie and him have done shots together.

*Space for one more

Enemies:

Ben (Buddy) Mathewson - bass player for the band. He thinks that Josie is nothing but a drugged out hot mess with a head for numbers. Maybe he's just jealous Josie likes his twin brother better...

Anyone of the various escaped Alliance experiments. Most of them are on Stephanie's most wanted list and all of them would be too much for the woman to handle alone if she had to apprehend one.

Alexander Hjalmar Northman

http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s281/deborahleighton/Alexander-Skarsgard.jpg

Personal Information:
Name: Alexander Hjalmar Northman
Place of birth: The Hammarby
Gender: Male
Age: 35 (born 2484)
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 220lbs
Eye colour: Blue
Hair colour: Blonde

Relatives: Colbert Stellan Northman (father, profession was Jarl - a political office on St Albans), Maisey Hickey Northman (nee Freeman, mother; profession suit-maker), Julianne Mie Northman (nee Harris, step-mother), Gustaf Ingmar (30), Bjorne Anders (21) and Valter Johan (11) Northman (brothers), Sam Marie (28) and Eija Saturn (19) Northman (sisters), Ossian Christopher Northman (2, half-brother)

Rank/Profession: Co-owner of Phantasm, a fetish nightclub. Connected with smugglers, black marketeers, money laundering, fraud, and drug dealing. Also owns a farm at Oland, on Greenleaf.

Demeanour: Cunning, calculating, yet loyal. Secretive when it serves his interests, and sometimes something of a trickster, he is nevertheless honest and direct when called for. A very calm, methodical individual, Alex rarely loses his temper. His confidence keeps him from feeling the need to prove himself. When pushed, however, he has a great capacity for violence. Unconcerned about being seen as a ‘bad guy’, seeing his own actions merely as means to ends. He has a joy of living.

Motivation: Personal interests, gain

Religion: Laid back atheist

Quotes:
“A tiny falsehood”
“You're ruthless because of the people you love. You'll do anything for them.”
“This is bad. Kris is going to kill me.”
(about Kristin) “She is extremely lazy, but loyal”


Background

Alex was born in the Black aboard the Hammarby, a light freighter, registered at Anchorage St Alban’s to businessman Colbert Stellan Northman and suit-maker Maisey Hickey Northman (nee Freeman). His father’s parents and infant sister (i.e. Alex’s grandparents and aunt) had been murdered in Stornoway by a pagan wolf-worship drug-addict cult when Colbert was a young man. Colbert’s father, Stellan, pronounced him Jarl (a local political office Stellan held) just before he (Stellan) died, but the cultists had taken Stellan’s crown in the attack. Colbert’s life work was trying to track down the murderers to exact revenge.

As such, the family travelled a lot, but they did live for a while by the North Sea on St Alban’s. His mother Maisey was an exclusive suit-maker and they managed to combine shipping her wares with following leads on the cultists.

From age 13 until 20 years old (2497-2504 AD) Alex worked alongside his dad and younger brothers, both with the family business shipping suits, and the business of finding Colbert’s family’s killers. During this time, they engaged the help of the Ysvek family, who had contacts in information gathering across the ‘Verse. There were some favours they had to do in return - ship unmarked packages of varying sizes and make drop-offs on out-of-the-way moons and Skyplexes, that sort of thing - but that was rarely ever out of their way.

Indeed, they found the Ysveks willing to provide legal counsel on the one or two occasions they needed it, again with only small favours in return.

At length, with the help of the Ysvek informant network, the Northman family caught up with the cult who had murdered Colbert’s parents and sister, and it was Alex who cleaned house, his father having been injured. However, the family crown was nowhere to be found in the cultists’ lair, so they assumed it had been sold, and keep a watch for it to this day. As for any legal fallout arising from having murdered some folk, the Ysveks have handled that for the Northman family, paying bribes in the right places and hiring good lawyers, clearing their names of all charges. Anyway, some folk in Interpol’s upper echelons weren’t too bothered that those weird-ass smelly wolf-worshipping hoboes ended up dead anyway… they’d caused a few problems themselves…

Several months after the showdown, Alex enrolled on an English course at Shreveport University, Athens, for six months, but he admits he did not study much and “had a blast” instead. The following year he enrolled in a business course at Marymount College, Osiris, and moved to the planet’s Capitol City. His parents separated, however, when he’d been there some six months, and began a lengthy and messy divorce; apparently life after Colbert had exacted vengeance on his family’s killers wasn’t what they’d been hoping for. Or maybe Maisey had just been holding out until Colbert got his revenge, supporting him until that was finished, and then going her own way. Maybe she was also suspicious of Julianne Harris, an unpublished novelist who danced for the Ysveks and who Colbert had given passage to a few times in the past.

Anyway, Alex returned to St Alban’s to support his parents, but the time he’d spent on Osiris had shown him he wanted to go into business.

Over the following 14 years (2505-2519) he built a career, with the Ysveks backing his play.

With the outbreak of war in ‘06 there were plenty of business opportunities for a savvy businessman to exploit. Before his parents split, Alex had planned to captain a small freighter under their business, but they were selling assets left, right, and centre to pay for the divorce, so Alex found work doing several favours for Ysvek luminaries, like Kostandin Ysvek, instead. One particularly memorable episode around 2509 saw him and his brother Gustaf posing as Alliance officers, tracking down a young female assassin who had been a bother to the Ysveks.

The brothers were surprised when they found the same tattoo on the assassin’s neck as the wolf-cultists had worn. Only thing was, she was working for the Alliance. That, and she fought with a ferocity and resistance to pain that Alex would later recognise as Reaver-esque.

(Note to GM: the assassin and indeed the cultists whom the Northmans murdered were in the employ of a rather more sinister group of string-pullers with far-right Neo-Neo-Nazi leanings. As an aside, the Northman Jarl’s crown hasn’t been sold, it’s in the collection of Richard Edgington, the far-right group’s leader, in his palace on Carthage. He doesn’t know who killed his cultists, and actually, he’s not terribly bothered - he’s got some new ones since, including the assassin Alex and Gustaf encountered in 2509.)

With a new life ahead of him, Alex didn’t want to go back to their old life of following leads and tracking the cultists down, so he was reluctant to tell their father, but Gustaf insisted. As such, the family know the hunt’s still on, but most of their leads have gone cold.

Alex’s attention had been focussed on building his business, however. It was quite early during this time (also 2509) that he met Kristin van Straten, who was working for the Ysvek ‘Boyar’ (overseer) on Bellerophon, a man named Besim Ysvek.

They became lovers almost immediately, but Alex sensed she was wasted in her existing contract to the Ysveks, introducing clients to Besim’s enterprises - girls and drugs. As such, he approached Besim with an offer to buy her contract, but Besim refused. Undeterred, Alex went over Besim’s head and negotiated with Besim’s uncle, Kostandin Ysvek, to release Kristin. Kostandin is the Family’s ‘Knazhnie Muzhi’ (leader) of the Core Sector of the Ysvek’s business operations, and also a public figure with interests in many legitimate operations, and a pragmatic man.

Alex still owes kostandin a few favours more to repay him for releasing Kristin from her contract, though the man hasn’t called anything in from the Northmans for a while. Besim remains angry towards both Alex and Kris to this day for Alex’s going over his head.

Meanwhile, Alex agreed to invest in Kris’ business ideas to open a chain of entertainment venues to employ her events management skills and experience. Alex trusted Kris from day one with his financial interests, seeing her potential and carefully helping her refine it. He often had to travel for other business across the ‘verse and Kristin kept the companies going and held the fort for weeks on end on some occasions, particularly during the remainder of the war. Even in Alex’s prolonged absences, though, Kristin grew and developed the franchise and more than doubled his financial return on her.

Some time soon after the war came to an end Alex became more settled in one place and agreed to replace their existing business contract with a partnership, as an acknowledgement of her investment and commitment, and as an expression of his loyalty to her, and so they became equal partners. As they forged their new relationship, however, their romantic entanglement - never exclusive - also shifted, and they spent less time physically intimate with one another.

They remained close and committed friends and business partners, however, driven by their mutual qualities of ambition and pleasure seeking, and the two now run a successful nightclub on Greenleaf Skyplex. Kris enjoys indulging in most all transformative substances, legal or otherwise, but Alex somehow keeps her use within moderation.

Languages: Swedish, English, Mandarin


Allies:

1. Kristin van Straten, business-partner at Phantasm and long-time ally.

2. Allies within the Ysvek organisation, such as Kostandin Ysvek, overseer of the Family’s operations in the Core Sector, whom Alex did a lot of work for during his first few years in business.

3. Patrick Chow, accountant at Phantasm as well as deal negotiator and sometimes various other roles.

Associates:

1. Scarlett Newman Wilson (23), the overseer on the Skyplex. Alex is attracted to her passionate nature, her greed, and her aspirations, but perhaps mainly her will to survive and her drive to enjoy life. He actually owns a copy of the handbook she wrote for settlers arriving at the rim; he’s been trying to charm her since she arrived back on the Skyplex a couple of months ago [four months have passed since LOTW, when she was on Akers Bluff].

2. Michael Andersen (28), lead engineer on the Skyplex. Alex sees him as a way to Scarlett.

3. Rodrigo 'El Cid' Herveaux (34), runs a surveying/construction company planetside on Greenleaf. His father had a debt to Alex.

4. Ginger, a strung-out employee at Phantasm

Enemies:

1. Edgar Johnson, ops manager on the Skyplex and a pain to Scarlett

2. Tomas Blaine, casino owner on the Skyplex. Alex likes picking ‘friendly’ fights with him.

3. Enemies within the Ysvek organisation, such as Besim Ysvek who oversees operations on Bellerophon, and his men.

Gender: Female
Age: 40 (born 2479)
Height: 5’7’’
Weight: 125lbs
Eye colour: Blue
Hair colour: Blonde

Relatives: Ralph van Straten (wealthy Londinium businessman), Sara van Straten (nee Beaufort, mother; landowner), estranged and disinherited.

Rank/Profession: Co-owner of Phantasm, a fetish nightclub. Assists behind the bar, on the door and in the office. Connected with smugglers, black marketeers, and drug dealing.

Demeanour: Cynical and apparently devoid of feelings for anyone except Alex, she is loyal (albeit lazy), protecting her mentor fiercely. She has sound business sense, and a great passion for economic wellbeing.

Motivation: Personal interests, gain, designer clothes and shoes.

Religion: None.

Quotes:
"I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can have someone rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a companion. That was a long, long time ago."

Background
Kristin was born in the major city of Wisconsin, on Londinium, to Ralph and Sara van Straten. Her father made his money in investments, primarily venture capital, and her mother owned a great deal of real estate inherited through her family, of Beaufort Terraforming Inc.

Kristin’s childhood was happy, growing up with many advantages that a wealthy family bestowed - holidays off-world, paid education, the best healthcare. She graduated from Madison University with a fine art degree but rejected her father’s offer to set her up in business and decided to take some time out before settling down into a career, and began backpacking across the ‘verse, falling in with the wrong crowd and generally disappointing her family.

She had been groomed to be a respectable young lady of society, but the lifestyle bored her, and she spent most of her early 20's breaking engagements and young men’s hearts, running up debts in the family name and getting herself banned from several hotel chains across the Core for holding wild parties in their suites.

In the spring of 2504, aged 25, she was arrested on Bellerophon for fraudulent use of credit after faking her father’s ident information to purchase illegal drugs. Interpol apprehended her and she was bailed without conviction when her family had the charges waived and paid a fine. Her family issued Kristin with an ultimatum, to settle down and return to Londinium to take responsibility within the family businesses, or to face permanent estrangement and disinheritance.

Kristin rejected the family advice, but found that her continued adventures were more difficult to sustain without funding. Now keeping a drug habit, she agreed to work for an associate she’d met at a party called Besim Ysvek, introducing new clients to his business (girls and drugs.) Though it funded her lifestyle back on Bellerophon, Kristin found she was still, ultimately, bored.

In 2509 Besim introduced her to Alexander Northman, and the two immediately clicked. They became lovers almost immediately, and Alex approached Besim to buy  out her existing contract to the Ysveks. Besim refused, but Alex went over his head and negotiated with Besim’s uncle, Kostandin, to release Kristin for an undisclosed amount. Besim remains angry towards the pair to this day for Alex’s going over his head.

Agreeing to invest in her business ideas to open a chain of entertainment venues to employ her events management skills and experience, Alex entrusted Kris from day one with his financial interests.  He often had to travel for other business across the ‘verse and Kristin kept the companies going and held the fort for weeks on end on some occasions, particularly in the early days during the war. Even in his prolonged absences, Kristin grew and developed the franchise and more than doubled his financial return on her.

As the war came to an end and Alex became more settled in one place, he agreed to replace their existing business contract with a partnership, as an acknowledgement of her investment and commitment, and as an expression of his loyalty to her, and so they became equal partners. As they forged their new relationship, however, their romantic entanglement seemed to shift also, and they drifted apart.   

Remaining close and committed as friends and partners, the pair no longer shared a bed, and instead embarked on other relationships (Alex more voraciously than Kristin, and Kristin more often with other women rather than men.) Still innately connected, driven by their mutual qualities of ambition and pleasure seeking, the two now run a nightclub on Greenleaf Skyplex. She still enjoys indulging in most all transformative substances, legal or otherwise, but since meeting Alex has kept her use within moderation. 

Languages: English, Swedish, Mandarin.

Allies:

1. Alexander Northman, business partner, mentor and former lover.
2. Dee Marquette, permanent skyplex resident and woman of means. Dee is the president of the Greenleaf Skypex Women’s Business Association, and the two have been known to do lunch or cocktails. Alex doesn’t particularly like her.
3. Marcus Valparaiso, childhood friend from Londinium, horse breeder who owns ranches on many worlds, including Greenleaf. Alex particularly dislikes him.

Associates:

1. Kostandin Ysvek, the Knazhnie Muzhi (leader) of the Core sector of the Ysvek clan, a ‘verse-wide criminal syndicate.
2. Patrick Chow, accountant and employee at Phantasm. 
3. Sam Arkwright, Maczarek Security. Kris and Sam met some years ago when Sam was running cargo on the Firefox. They haven’t seen each other for years, but neither are aware of the other’s presence yet on the Skyplex.

Enemies:

1. Tomas Blaine, casino owner on the Skyplex. Alex likes picking ‘friendly’ fights with him. This causes Kristin no end of issues that she has to deal with, cleaning up after Alex.
2. Besim Ysvek, Bellerephon branch lieutenant of Kostadin Ysvek, the Knazhnie Muzhi (KM) of the Core sector for the Ysvek Clan criminal syndicate (see associate above.)
3. Ralph van Straten, estranged father. He doesn’t wish her physical harm, but he’d love to see her fail after disowning her from the family fortune.

Diwu Alistair, external Alliance auditor

Specifications

Gender: male
Age: early thirties
Height: 1.75 m
Weight: 80 kg

Appearance

Fairly non-descript. Dark eyes and dark hair, with hints of Chinese parentage and a face that is passably fair to look at but nothing more.  Appeasing body language. In adequate shape, though not well-trained.

Demeanour

Calm, polite and reticent. Takes a quiet pride in being good at what he does.

Biography

The void beyond. The black. Space.
For as long as he can remember, Alistair has dreamed about travelling there with no ties to ever make him stop. Just him and the black, all around him, calling to him, finally granting him a measure of peace. Sadly, nowadays he has neither the time nor the courage to indulge in such luxuries. Dreams are for children, after all, and he is no child any longer.

He is an auditor of the Alliance, a man sent to bring order into a world of corruption, and though that world might frequently be the direct creation of his masters, he still finds a silent, almost ferocious joy in dismantling it.
He is a professional, and he is very good at what he does. And more importantly, all false modesty aside, he knows it. 
He is the 26th century knight in shining armor. At least, that is what he tells himself in the dark of night, when there is nobody around to admire his righteousness and that quiet voice begins anew on the eternal list of all injustices he has turned a blind eye to, or caused himself.
He is a fool, and he knows it. All the secrets he keep sometimes make him sick when he considers them, when he considers the leash they put upon him, when he considers what he has turned himself into. There has never been an age where keeping that armor pristine was cheap, but as of late the price tag only seems to grow and grow and... he is tired. He wants to stop. But he can't stop, he has built up a momentum now, and behind him the avalanche he has triggered in his wake threatens to devour him should he falter. Money makes enemies and secrets make for corpses. In his branch, the two goes hand in hand.

He is almost at the Greenleaf Skyplex now, the perfect position for him. He is efficient and inconvenient for his superiors at the same time, making him the perfect mixture of expendable competence. He is there to make sure the Alliance's cut is as big as it should be, and then some more.
He is a dead man walking, and he knows it. But even dead men can tell secrets, and he has a lot of them...

Re: Ident Control - Applications

Thanks Deb, SH, Jason, Ash! Sorry I haven't replied earlier.
I'm working on another one that sadly might be quite similar and so not very exciting I'm afraid, but it's for a good reason. We'll see how he turns out.

Daniel "Danny" Franco

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v333/rlongtin/Phoenix%20Roleplaying/Danny%20Franco/Bio.jpg

Personal Information:
Name: Danny Franco
Place of birth: Orphan
Gender: Male
Age: 35 (born 2484)
Height: 5’6”
Weight: 148lbs
Eye colour: Blue
Hair colour: Brown

Relatives: Unknown

Rank/Profession: Entrepreneur / Transportation Services – Owner and Driver of "Speedy Transportation Services"

Demeanour: He’s generally an upbeat and friendly kinda guy.

Motivation: His business is his pride and joy and is at the center of his life.

Religion: Unaffiliated Existentialist.

Quotes:

"I'll getcha where ya needa go."

Background
Spending his life being bounced around from foster home to foster home and not getting adopted made life pretty rough. As such whatever chances he stood at becoming an engineer or a politician diminished with each move as it impacted his education. He doesn't know who his family is, nor did the orphanage where he was left. They don't have any names - his own name was given to him by the orphanage for lack of any information.

The biggest impact on his life was working for a golf course as a teenager where he learned how to repair and drive golf carts. He discovered very quickly that he had a passion for it and worked there for a number of years, saving up so one day he might be able to create his own business.

He’s pretty smart when it comes to numbers and understands the basics of running a business and some of the complexities. He’s quite independent and very modest, mostly about the fact that he owns his transportation service – people generally think he’s just the driver and that there’s some bigwig pulling the strings. Those who know he’s the owner generally came to find that out under the impression that he’s happy doing what he does and doesn’t want people to have the perception that he’s some sort of big shot.


Languages: English, Mandarin

He’s still in the process of making friends since he doesn’t know hardly anyone. If he has any enemies, he doesn’t know it.

Allies:

1. Mysterious Benefactor? - it seems somebody with hands in the pockets of Greenleaf Skyplex Administration pulled some strings to get an approval put through for Danny's transportation service. He had already been declined a number of times on the grounds that a go-cart would not be permitted if it would be driven through the station. (Took a little liberty here Kevin, hope that's okay)

Associates:

Enemies:

Quentin Doulos, Alliance aide

Specifications
Gender: male
Age: 26
Height: 1.85 m
Weight: 90 kg

Appearance
An affable young Caucasian male with traces of a Greek heritage evident in his facial structure. Dark hair and green eyes. Keeps in good shape.

Demeanour
Mercurial. In his better moments, Quentin is quite pleasant and easily amused. In his worse, he is brooding, irritable and quick to anger. The difference between the two is sometimes a matter of seconds.

Biography
Quentin is an angry young man, has always been and will probably always be so.
As of late, however, his mood has only seemed to worsen and it is with some alarm his colleagues have begun to notice this downward slope. The ones not involved in the betting pool on how long before he is killed or arrested in a brawl, at any rate.
Nominally, he was sent to the Greenleaf Skyplex in advance due to his position as auditor Diwu Alistair's aide. The word around Home Office, however, holds for truth another story: that if he were to be caught in the routine forward investigation usually done before the official visit, there would be few tears shed in the event of his unfortunate disappearance. He is expendable goods. He knows it. And it makes him mad.


(I'll be back to add more if that's alright. This should be just about enough to know what to expect at least )
