[CS] Aliens/Colonial Marines [OPEN]

Post by medic guy » Wed May 20, 2020 7:51 pm


As far as characters try to keep it realistic for folks that would actually sign up to be in the USCM. You may be strong or smart, but you probably aren't speaking 5 languages or a former olympic athlete. As far as equipment most will be carrying a pulse rifle with an underslung grenade launcher, if you want to bring some other specific items with you it's probably fine, just keep it reasonable (ie. probably no suits of middle ages armor, light sabers, an entire armory in your back pack and such). When you fill out your character sheet, you can erase everything that is in parenthesis ( ).

Character sheet:

Author Name (ooc):
Player Name (ic):
Species: (most everyone is going to be human at this point, android you are android/synthetic person or your culturally sensitive or less sensitive version)
Employed by: (most everyone will be the USCM) Rank: Position/Specialty:
Where are you from (ic): (Planet and you can generalize down from there, if you're from earth the country and city/town is fine.)

Physical Description:
(Pictures are fine to include here. I'm not sure if photo credits have to be given on this site or not, but if they are required just add it to the side or underneath the picture).
Sex: Age: Race: Skin Complexion: Ethnicity (if it applies):
Height: feet inches Weight: pounds (sorry my metric conversion skills aren't the greatest)
Hair Color: Hairstyle: Eye Color: Tattoos/Scars/Etc.:
Any adornments: (jewelry, piercings, glasses, hats, and such)
(We really don't need to know your character's clothing size and such unless you feel an urgent need to share it.)

Personality: (a sentence or two to a paragraph is fine, is your character quiet, outgoing, stubborn, brave, friendly, aggressive, etc.)

Character backstory: (share as little or as much about your character's past as you'd like within reason, why the joined the corp and how long they've been in may be good)

Skills: (everyone in the corp has gotten at least a familiarization with weaponry used by the squad/platoon, so if someone had to pick up the sniper rifle for example they could use it but may not be familiar with all the attachments or as skilled as the sniper themself would be. Everyone knows how to at least partially use a portable welder, drive a wheeled vehicle, use a flamer and those kind of things. Some things that would be more specialized like piloting a dropship, using a powerloader effectively, running a bypass on a door would be more specialized skills. All those in the corp were trained in basic combat first aid, so hopefully someone comes in to be a medic)

Clothing: (all troops are in fatigues and light armor during missions (dressed like Hicks or Hudson from the movie Aliens), if we happen to go in space/toxic environment then everyone will be in an EVA suit (similar to an astronaut outfit) Consider this your off-duty clothing and any everyday carry items.

Equipment: (your battle/deployed gear)

Hair Color: Brown Hairstyle: Short with bangs usually off to a sort of "winged" side Eye Color: Green Tattoos/Scars/Etc.: A family crest of a falcon over a setting sun on her right shoulder, USCM Sniper on her lower left calf. A lotus tramp stamp she doesn't talk about. Only one scar so far located around the left side in the center of her abdomen and back where she'd been shot,
Any adornments: Earings and marks of piercings a plenty that have healed some sense being in the service.

Personality: Is rather quiet and shy but loyal and outgoing. She loves to go out drinking with the crew just usually needs a bit of dragging into things.

Character backstory: Born on the fourth satelite over the mining world of Romula 5 Nova grew up usually climbing around the infrastructure and reading as a past time. Until her dad on her seventh birthday got her the Hunter Series 9 .22 firing rifle. With HS9 in hand she soon took to hunting, usually shooting small rodents that snuck onto the Instalation from the surface world. She would then try and charge for her exterminating services to buy books. At 19 she enlisted realizing she wasn't interested in any of the other possibilities.

At twenty she was then moved into the sniper program. Where she would spend two more years learning everything she could about the trade before becoming a actual sniper on the field. Nova has sense then spent the last two years being assigned to various squads or sent on solo missions. Having been shuffled about enough that she's struggled at times getting used to squad mates. Her brief career though is decorated in recommendations though from the amount of times she's been helpful as a marksman.

Skills:
Minimal skills in driving, mission planning
General skills in electronics, repairs, communications systems, medic, and piloting.
Specialties marksman, weapon use, surveillance, stealth, tracking, hand to hand combat

Clothing:
Fatigues: off duty she usually wears the standard fatigue pants and a black tank top. Nearly always having her knife and sidearm on her.
Light Armor: Normally less bulky than others in design and covering more. The sniper/scout uniform is more grey in color intended to blend in more with suroundings and darkness.

Equipment: Cloak: Using a digital camo design supposedly using experimental technology the cloak adjusts to one's surounded colors. Intended to aid in remaining concealed from view. Arm brace: A gauntlet worn by snipers to help handle the kick of the rifle of choice. Combat knife, communications gear, small med kit, normally a canteen and small pack of rations. Seven magazines for her sniper rifle and usually four for her pistol. Her pistol being the 7 shot New Klutch Revolver 50 cal, or NKR-50 for short.

Anti-Personnel Magnetized Longshot Mark 4, aka APML-M4 named "Talon" by Nova
Talon is a 75 caliber high velocity sniper rifle. With a scope that's onboard systems help adjust the sights for the variables that might impact accuracy. Having a zoom that can be reliable from a mile and a half out, with night and thermal visions useable from a mile out. It's ammunition is high caliber enough to rip through most armor even of buildings and Instalations. The rounds then detonating. Rather than a munitions type one can simply chose a long, short or non fuse on the bullet. The magazine holds five rounds, and on its own it can put a hole in most walls and armor, with the armor piercing munitions usually doing well against most vehicles. Although the standard gear has a gauntlet to help with recoil, Nova still caries a muzzle break as well as a silencer so that options exist.

In order to help her perform as the resident science officer Frances has also been given an inquisitive personality.

In light of studies that were conducted into the role of androids within infantry units, she was also designed to act as a neutral party that kept her team performing at the highest possible level. Androids can also retain vast amounts of information, a function which often lead to many androids serving as science officers aboard vessels.

After undergoing extensive testing for a year, Frances was deployed on her first assignment with the USCM.

Species: Human
Employeed by: USCM
Rank: Private
Position/Specialty: Smartgunner/Support
Where are you from (ic): Zenus Vier

Sex: Male
Age: 23
Race: Caucasian
Skin Complexion: Light tan
Ethnicity (if it applies): Zenus Vier German
Height: 5'9"
Weight: 190 pounds
Hair Color: Blonde

Any adornments: Whatever the mission requires

Personality: Young, naive, outgoing. Drinks, smokes, likes women. Very gung-ho and full of testosterone.

Character backstory: Joe Vogel originates from the farming planet of Zenus Vier. Colonized primarily by Germanic people, he is no exception. Zenus Vier is primarily known for the "Zenus Vier Disaster," which was a major nuclear blast in response to an unknown threat. Little is publicly known about the event, but it resulted in the likely deaths of over ten thousand people. The US government insists that its Marines acted in the interest of public safety in response to the threat of an unknown hostile organism. Joe was not involved in this incident, but he knew some of the missing people. It affected him deeply and got deep in his psyche, as it did for most other residents of the planet. He felt the urge to make the universe safe for his family and others. This in combination with his masculine attitude and his poor grades resulted in him joining the Marine Corps at 22. (This is a reference to my other USCM game and to my book.)

Skills: Smartgun and support.

Clothing: Tshirts and pants when not in Marine gear. Usually has smokes and a lighter. Likes to carry playing cards.

Equipment: M56 Smartgun, flak jacket, shoulder-lamp, VP70 pistol, combat knife, etc.
