-Time in the Agency-
2 years, Part of the 6th batch
Resh’s go-to weapon. Salvo is a simple rifle, there are no tricks to it. Modeled after the sleek design of an assault rifle, Salvo is easy to carry. It comes with a sight capable of zooming 200x. While Salvo itself is simple, it was created to carry some of the most complex bullets The Lab has created. With Salvo, there is Salvo Jr. A smaller, more compact version of the assault rifle.
CF standing for Concentrated Fire, these bullets are directly linked to Resh’s Threat Detecting Eyes. The CF Thumpers shift their trajectory based on where the target is, but can't make complete turns. Even when there are multiple targets the bullets will each go after a different target, allowing Resh to attack multiple marks without needing to move his gun too much, as long as they are within his line of sight. The CF Thumpers earn the “Thumper” part of their name due to the method of which they curve. Gears within the bullets smack each other based on which direction they're going, causing a loud thumping to be heard. The noise can be rather intimidated when multiple bullets are being shot.
Hollow tipped bullets where the powder charges within the casing are replaced with kinetic gilings. When struck the gilings release a massive amount kinetic power that hurls the bullet at insane speeds. Upon contact, the bullet can cause the same amount of damage as a .50 cal, and with the rapid-fire capability Salvo has, these bullets can do unforgiving damage, even leveling one-story houses in a matter of seconds.
Bullets that explode in a blaze of glory once they've buried themselves into a target. The bullets are meant to roast the victim from the inside out but are also proficient at halting or slowing down cellular regeneration by scorching the cells.
Drillers spin at an accelerated rate to drill straight through their target, leaving behind a 4mm hole going all the way through once they've struck. The metal jacket of these bullets are composed of a Hydranium alloy, allowing them to drill through most of the toughest metals.
A jetpack Resh uses for quick movement. It creates a barrier around him that works as a windshield, keeping the wind from smacking him in the face. The Backpack allows Resh to move at supersonic speeds. For quick maneuvers close to the ground the Backpack has a lower speed hover mode, perfect for dodging attacks. The Backpack directly attaches to a piece of technology that is connected to Resh’s spine.
Resh’s Gauntlets are simple. A pair of gloves that expel a focused amount of force once Resh has punched something, anything.
Resh’s eyes have been augmented to be able to read the neural activity of a being and distinguish whether or not they are a threat, let it be an enemy or friend, human or other. Anything that has intentions of harming Resh is immediately highlighted with a green tint and he's capable of seeing them through walls and other material. If they leave his vision, a slightly annoying green arrow points towards whatever direction the threat is.
Along with highlighting threats, Resh’s eyes immediately point out when an opponent is getting ready to attack. It focuses in on involuntary muscle movements or the contraction of a muscle when an action is about to be performed. This with Resh’s fighting experience and the TD Oculars’ neural reading capabilities allows him to pretty much predict what move his opponent is going to make.
Resh’s DNA has been infused with a multitude of bacteria and animals, mainly the Planarian, Hydra, Sea Stars, and the Axolotl, in order to achieve a powerful healing factor. The mixture of DNA along with formulas from The Labs has caused this healing factor to become something Resh is quite dependent on. The longer he is forced to use his regeneration the less pain he can feel. There's really no need for high amounts of durability when Resh can get up from injuries like it was nothing.
While Resh can heal from most injuries, his capabilities can be overwhelmed, too many dire injuries at one time can slow his regeneration down to a complete stop, in which Resh will have to be healed by an outside source to a certain degree until his own abilities kick in.
Charming and professional as he may appear, Resh is the epitome of an awkward, clumsy mess. During his training, Resh focused most of his time in combat and battle tactics, secluding himself in his studies and computer-simulated scenarios. Thus, Resh doesn't have too much experience when it comes to actually socializing with… Anything. He freezes when anything with a beating heart approaches him unexpectedly, and God knows how sweaty he gets when a female tries to make conversation with him.
If a task put before him has nothing to do with combat, it’s best that he is put under heavy supervision. Resh isn't capable of washing dishes without smashing a few plates, he can't even vacuum without somehow missing every particle of dust possible.
While his colleagues normally have low expectations of Resh’s performances, he's sure to make a big impression on any battle he enters. Resh didn't sacrifice his social life for nothing. He has superior knowledge in hand to hand combat, being able to keep up with both trained martial artist and unpredictable free fighters. He knows his way around a plethora of weapons but is known for his talent with ranged weaponry. Resh has a mind that works like no other, every move he makes is calculated to the fullest and as long as everything goes as planned, Resh will come out victorious in his battles… If only he could integrate those calculations with his everyday life.
(You thought it was over? No boy I still have more to write)
Awkward as he may be, Resh has a big heart. He’ll see to a friend that seems to be having emotional troubles and make sure they're doing fine. But he won't let this compassion distract him from his work. He will prioritize the killing of Hydrians over the wellbeing of a co-worker. Admittedly these actions are biased and in some occurrences, he will choose his friends over the mission, but that's only if they seem to be sitting at death’s door.
Resh harbors an intense hate for Hydrians and, if not given any other order, will attack any Hydrian he can see in an almost trance-like state.
The first thing that should be mentioned is that Resh didn't care much about the war between humans and Hydrians in the beginning. Outside of the explosions they had caused when first arriving, there wasn't much destruction being caused by them. His young mind couldn't fully register the threat their existence had posed, and the fact that they were sharing the same foods as humans hardly bothered him. A scene on the news where a Hydrian came in contact with a reporter but didn't harm anybody only gave him another reason to believe that the Hydrians just weren't assailants on Earth. He was completely fine with their existence.
Fast-forward to age eight, Resh is building a sand castle in his backyard, complete with a ten-inch deep moat filled with tadpoles to protect his action figures within the castle. Three well-dressed men approached him while he was setting up the flag, waving a device in his face that repeatedly beeped, a sound that would get louder and faster the closer it got to him. His parents stood behind the open glass doors, his father made no attempt to hide his emotions, face tomato red with anger, his eyes practically drilled into the backs of the suited men, which they were aware of, but purposely ignored. Resh had only seen that look from his father when the next door neighbor tried to hook up with his wife, Resh’s stepmother. She stood next to his father, smiling a reassuring smile, letting him know everything would be okay. Though her eyes were obviously tearing up, it was a pitiful attempt at staying strong. After few annoying minute of the machine probing every inch of his body, the suited men nodded to himself and told Resh to follow them within the house.
There was a heated argument, Resh could hear it through his headphones. His father was yelling, loud. Even his soft-spoken stepmother was getting a few boorish words in, that was a surprise. He couldn't hear the suited men, they weren't yelling, they weren't even responding. There was really no need, they won the argument the moment they found Resh to be suitable for whatever it was they wanted from him. 5 minutes later, one of the suited men came into Resh’s room, and promptly told him that it was “time to go”. Resh went downstairs with the man, finding his stepmother bawling her eyes out on the floor, and his father sitting at the dining room table, still red with fury, but this time there was a hint of hopelessness in his eye. He wanted to do something, but he clearly knew there was nothing that could be done. The family said their goodbyes, Resh still confused, before Resh was escorted out the door. On his way to the white van parked outside, Resh was told that he was being drafted by The Agency and that he was now being trained for the war against Hydrians. They told him that this was all because of the Hydrians, that everything was their fault. But Resh’s life was left untouched by the Hydrians, his home was still standing, and his parents were obviously still living. It didn't look like the Hydrians were ruining his childhood at all, it was the Agency.
During his introduction to the academy, The Academy, Resh and his peers were bombarded with footage showing the terror Hydrians had apparently shown to innocent civilians. Resh wasn't moved, it didn't take a rocket scientist to see the humans were starting most of it, probably impulsive acts of violence stirred up by fear. Still, there were a few clips that went against Resh beliefs. Hydrians looting stores and leaving everyone inside dead, Hydrians abandoning human food and eating humans instead, Hydrians abusing their overwhelming power and killing anything that got close, Hydrians setting up their own territory… And using lynched, mutilated humans as a warning for all. This smacked some reality into Resh, not all of the Hydrians were peaceful and this wasn't their planet to start settling into. Resh’s view did change that day, but not as much as the Agency might've hoped. His peers, who may have witnessed the brutality of a Hydrian first hand and developed a hate for them, were easily swayed by the video. Resh only had an indifference towards them, killing them would be a chore, and that was that.
During Resh’s training, most of his peers would agree that he took training very seriously. Aside from the mandatory lectures and physical exams he participated in, Resh spent most of his time practicing battle tactics and fighting in virtual simulations. He ignored just about everyone in the academy just so he could focus on getting his combat abilities to its full potential. And 10 years later, during his graduation, while most of Resh’s scores were mediocre, his combat scores were one of the highest in the school.
Immediately after graduation, Resh was given an offer, more like a demand, to be taken to a special division for five years where the work would be more intense, but the pay would be higher. Thus Resh disappeared, and somewhere in that time, he had learned that his parents had died at the hands of a Hydrian. Two years later Resh returned to America, completely scarred up with an inexplicable abhorrence in his heart for Hydrians.
