Alright, I have the characters position and stuff all cleared through with the owner of the ship in question (Basilisk). Here it is. My first OTC profile, up for approval.
Name: Gregory Smith (Greg)
Species/Type: Human, Rebel Weapons Master [Equivalent – ODST]
Rank: Weapons Master (unofficial title)
Appearance: Greg stands at six foot four, making him rather impressively sized human being. He has blonde hair that is almost always messy, brown eyes, and skin that actually has a natural tan to it. Most would say he has a somewhat rugged charm about him. His normal gear when out of combat fits the occasion; he has his suits for formal occasions, he has his “uniform” for meetings, and he has his t-shirt with jeans that he wears pretty much the rest of the time. When in combat situations, he wears a suit of armor that seems like a hybrid between Marine and ODST armor types, providing superior freedom of movement but without sacrificing the abilities of ODST armor.
Loadout: Greg employs the following loadout –
* [Primary] M395 Designated Marksman Rifle
* [Secondary] M45D Tactical Shotgun
* [Grenades] M9 HE-DP Grenade
* [Armor] Autosentry
Personality: Greg is a rather complicated man. His main focus seems to be the advocacy of philosophical concepts such as human rights and freedom of choice; ones that he feels the UNSC prevents from reaching their fullness. He is motivated along this goal by the desire to achieve the best that can possibly be reached. His disposition is often rather irritated, but he remains overall and even tempered person, and often keeps a rather hopeful outlook on what is going to come – when he talks about it at all. He is willing to manipulate people whenever it becomes absolutely necessary for him, and often keeps any conversation moving as he desires. He maintains focus at all times, and doesn’t much like taking risks; indeed, he is almost paranoid. Once a goal has been set he is relentless on following it, no matter how long it takes. He is always supportive of other crew members and his captain, and those who follow their goals. While he may be highly critical on any ideas anyone brings up, he is still willing to listen to them. He is highly evasive about his past or anything he knows. Greg doesn’t much try to conform to any sort of regulations, instead doing what he thinks needs to be done or thinks would be the best to do. He often jokes around when in comfortable situations.
Skills: Greg is incredibly skilled with weapons – not so much with using them as putting them together, taking them apart, modifying them, and the like. He is thus in charge of maintaining supplies and the like. He has a great head for numbers, and is able to recognize minor details such as how many bullets an enemy as fired – and knowing, based on the weapon, how long it takes for them to reload. He’s not the best at aiming in the world, but he can estimate throws pretty well, making a grenade in his hands dangerous to anyone against him. He’s pretty good with robotics, allowing him to work with and use an Autosentry.
Backstory: Gregory doesn’t much talk about his past, but a few things are known – he was raised in the United States area of the world, and was taught from a young age many of the ideals that founded that country. He did poorly in school along most scientific studies and English, but excelled in mathematics, some areas of history, and in physics. He worked in shop classes and later would become a weapons designer and manufacturer for a few years. He served in the military for seven years at some point, and received training there; he wasn’t quite good enough to enter into the ODST, but was still praised quite highly nevertheless. Over the years, as he learned more and more about the UNSC and looked at the way it was progressing, he decided to take a stand against it and joined the rebel forces under Captain Henrietta Williams. His knowledge of equipment would lead to him being assigned the task of weapons master, as he is in charge of keeping the crew outfitted with what they need. He is also one of the highest ranking officials and advisors upon the ship, and typically discusses courses of action alongside the former ONI agent.
Weaknesses: Gregory is hopelessly outmatched in a fair fight be a member of the actual ODST or, worse yet, a Spartan, but he does have enough talent to stand his ground against most common marines and the like. His autosentry is not as advanced as an actual Forerunner technological piece would be, thus leaving him with a subpar armor ability as well. Despite his classification as being equivalent to such, Greg only has two things that can match anyone beyond the average marine – non-combat skills, and brute physical strength.
