Topic: Sign-Up and Profile Thread

Essential Background bit for first sign-ups

You are all employees of Maczarek Security at this point in time and most of you are members of the crew of Kvant, one of the firm's "special operations" vessels.

In May 2519, you were all involved in an operation in the Whitefall system to evict a group of rowdy tenants from a Skyplex on behalf of its owners. The operation went well enough, until the pilot, Peter Lakehurst, who you suspected had a drinking problem, crashed a remote-controlled shuttle into the station while attempting to dock it. Comprehensive de-pressurisation and the death of all those on board was narrowly avoided.

The damage to the station was extensive and the company's lawyers are trying to reach a settlement for compensation. An internal investigation has found key cut-outs were not engaged, Lakehurst was not sober and that he Lakehurst should face a full court-martial for gross negligence, regardless of whether criminal proceedings for flying whilst intoxicated take place.. Your former CO, Danielle Kendall, is facing a charge of negligence for not tackling the drinking problem. Both are very likely to be dismissed in disgrace.

You have been summoned to corporate headquarters on Londinium to learn your particular fates...

Joseph Quinn

Personal Information:
Name: Joseph Quinn
Place of birth: Londinium
Gender: Male
Age: 34
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 160
Eye colour: Blue
Hair colour: Light Brown
Rank/Profession: Mercenary/Criminal Investigator

Demeanour: Serious and work-oriented (while on the job) / life of the party (while not on the job)
Motivation: Doing his work well, and doing the right thing
Quote: "Think smart and do your job."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v333/rlongtin/Phoenix%20Roleplaying/Quinn/Quinn3.png

Background

Quinn originally began work as a police officer in Narcotics, often involved in drug raids and the like. He was an aspiring Criminal Investigator on the core planets who finally got promoted to Detective before a relationship gone sour resulted in an Internal Affairs investigation. Though the investigation was determined to be unfounded, his ex, the IA agent that started the case against him, pursued him so long as her work gave her the authority to do so.

He eventually had to give in and give up police work just to get away from her. Fortunately for him, she was unable to pursue him further now that he was no longer under her authority. Now he's a mercenary - still dedicated to doing what's right, but smarter than the above average client requires. Despite not being a Criminal Investigator, he can't kick his old detective habits. He doesn't generally share information with anybody unless he has more than a few pieces of the puzzle put together, usually he keeps his thoughts to himself if they're not relevant to the job.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v333/rlongtin/Phoenix%20Roleplaying/Quinn/Quinn2.png

Skills and feats

Quinn's exceptionally good at detective-work, both finding clues and putting together pieces of the puzzle. Quinn has very little trouble attracting the attention of the opposite gender, though he doesn't sleep around - he's more respectable than that. Quinn's also good at squad tactics, often taking lead when times call for it. He's also a decent shot with a pistol - his weapon of choice. He has undergone training in hand-to-hand for self-defense as a police officer, as well as training on protocol for handling criminals and suspected criminals both on site and in a secure area.

I'll be filling in the rest later...

Allies:



Associates:



Enemies:

Esma Alvarez - the IA agent, Quinn's ex - she still feels burned by him and would take the opportunity to get a dig in if she ever saw him again...or maybe take him back to her place...or maybe both. She felt burned when Quinn ended their relationship and, as Quinn saw it, she became a psycho. Quinn hasn't seen her in a while, so it's not clear what she'd do if she ever saw him again, or how Quinn would react either. Generally though Quinn determined that one way or another she was bad news.

Name:  Liam Randell Barnaby Sells the fifth
Nickname: Angel (sue me)
Age: 26
Height: 6'2"
Weight 234 LB
Birthplace: Space
Profession: Merc, Bar room/Underground fighter, on again off again pilot

http://i52.tinypic.com/2uf3ehl.jpg

Background:

Angel was born with money, lots of money.  His family were very successful traders around the core.  He spent most of his time on board their ship as his father Sells 4th believed that he wanted to get something done right to do it yourself.  So Angel's father did his own trading unlike other trading companies who commissioned out trade routes.  However spending his entire childhood in space, he grew up with very little education and social interactions other than what his father and mother taught him.  They mostly groomed him to take over the business after they had died.  However his father made a bad deal with a man named Bradley Hanover and was killed along with Angel's mother when Angel was 16.  Hanover took all his father's riches and used his influence to throw Angel in prison.


(Angel the day he got out of prison talking to Hanover)
http://i52.tinypic.com/2qixyxv.jpg

Angel's prison was a very violent experience for him and he learned how to fight extremely well.  Angel changed and became very cruel and good at beating people up.  Eventually he was let go after he made a deal to kill a few inmates that were planning a riot.  As he stepped out of prison a free man Hanover returned flaunting the wealth at Angel's expense.  Angel promised Hanover that he will kill him one day and no one will ever find your body.  Hanover assured Angel that, that will never happen and left knowing Angel would not do anything just outta prison.

Angel began fighting to make money, enough money to get the connections required to find Hanover once again so he can finish "the job."  Angel became trained in the ancient martial arts and shooting pistols and other guns during this time as well.  Eventually after beating all comers he took jobs on a few different ship crews as a pilot which his father taught him how to do.  Until he hooked up with The Eagles of Warsaw.

I couldn't really think up a good nickname for a quiet, ruthless, madman.  And the character is based on him so why the hell not?  (If anyone saw the ep. "The Ring" from Angel season 1 it is the main inspiration for the concept)

That doesn't sound too unpleasant. ;-)

I prefer Angel as a series, though, and I'm right there with you in basing characters here on characters from other shows etc., it gives people a frame of reference.

Wish I could join this sim right now, the enthusiasm is palpable!

Born: Hera
Place of birth: 
Age: 28
Height: 5’6”
Weight: 118 lbs
Eyes: Hazel
Hair: Brown
Known Relatives: Father: Cecil Graves; Mother: Maura Graves;
Background
Following the footsteps of both her parents, joined the Alliance as soon as she turned 18 and was able. Quickly moved up, due both to her ability, determination, and her family name. Opting to get away from the Alliance and people that would always look to her last name instead of her ability, Harper quickly got hired on with the company Wallenstein GmbH. She worked security detail for Lucinda Nelson, high society daughter of a prestigious sports team owner, John Nelson, before growing tired of constantly covering for Lucinda’s secret meetings with Calvin Montgomery, a fellow member of the security detail. Through a lot of wishing, hoping, and contemplating of using her last name, Harper was hired by Maczarek Security, and instantly set her sights on the Eagles of Warsaw…

Harper is playful, slightly mischievous, but completely dedicated to her job and getting it done.

Hey cool, feel free to write up a character! We are currently on Whitefall at our client's residence doing the meet-and-greet. Feel free to check out Silent's awesome intro to Kvant where we all learned about our current mission (and it also provides insight into where the group has come from thusfar). link

Bryan Chu

http://i1105.photobucket.com/albums/h359/sidwashburne/Bryan.jpg

Name: Bryan Chu
Born: Ariel City
Age: 28
Height: 5’9
Weight: 155 lbs.

Background:

Born in Ariel City to a doctor and a stay at home mother Bryan Chu had a very solid upbringing and intended to follow in his father’s footsteps and one day work along side him in Saint Lucy’s hospital. However things didn’t quite go to plan as the Unification War broke out when he was 16 and not long after his 18th birthday he was drafted into the Alliance military.

After 3 years of war Bryan returned to Ariel City a changed man. He had found he was much more skilled at causing bodily harm than fixing it. For a time he considered remaining with the Alliance or looking into the mercenary business, however, to appease his father, he continued to study medicine.

He did so for the next two miserable years, but eventually decided it was just not the career path for him, much to his father’s chagrin. Once again his focus returned to the mercenary business, which had seen a boon since the end of the war.

Both Wallenstein and Maczerek Security showed interest. Eventually Bryan settled on Maczerek as he was familiar with Anna Maczarek exploits during the war. After serving with his initial recruitment squad he was assigned to 7th company and from there Kvant.

In case you were going for bringing up the IA agent, I've included her name and a little more about her in an update to Quinn's character sheet.

Any of them, but I'd prefer the last one. We're about to make a time jump and so we can change the crew around a little.

Gun-For-Hire it is. I'll work on it and try to get something posted here soon.

Personal Information:
Name: Eleanor ‘Lanie’ Page
Place of birth: Persephone
Gender: Female
Age: 30
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 130
Eye color: Green
Hair color: Red
Rank/Profession: Mercenary
Demeanor: Serious and extremely professional. She understands that her looks help her in this job field.
Motivation: Making a name for herself and doing her family right.
Quote: "Hey pal, my gun is up here, those are my cannons."

Background
Lanie has worked on numerous ships in her short career as a bodyguard/gun-for-hire. When she was seventeen, she hired out as a cook on an Orion cruiser. During her maiden voyage, the ship came under attack by Reavers, forcing the girl to grow up fast. When the security detail was shot before her she reacted without thought. Dropping into the prone she snatched his pistol and proceeded to mow-down the boarders. She doesn’t remember much about that first fight, but according to the shipboard cameras she was personally responsible for the death of at least fifteen Reavers who were trying to break into the Nursery. From that point on, she’s taken on the role of private security. She becomes calm and collected, almost distant when it’s a life or death situation.
She is loyal to her employer, and never switches during a contract. When the term is completed, she will either stay on, or shift to the next higher bid.

Skills and feats
She likes to wield two pistols, not quite in a two-gun mojo, but in an alternating fire. She is proficient at the snapshot and quick-draw as well. She is capable at self-defense, but prefers to keep her enemies at range. Of note she loves dresses that show off her figure, boots, and a top-hat; complete with goggles.

Allies: Michael LaFrance (First ship Captain)
Earnest Page (Twin brother, ship crewman, elsewhere)

Associates:

Enemies:
Francis Blanco – Former first mate on the merchant vessel Miguel He thought that with his size he would be able to force himself on a young and still wet behind the ears crewmember. Unfortunately for him, he had not heard of Lanie’s reputation. To make a long story short, he was humiliated and dropped at an alliance prison with rape charges.

Good stuff - she's not going to wear dresses a lot, though. How did she come to hear of Maczarek Security?

Re: Sign-Up and Profile Thread

Corset and leather pants then. She was approached about the post after she'd advertised her qualifications and availability. She's been out of work for about 3 weeks now.
