Gate to Infinity PRP

Posts: 8,335
A group of about 500 people are gathered in the main cargo hold of a Hercules class transport as it descends through the atmosphere. A gruff man stands in front of the group with a middle aged woman and a relatively young Protoss sitting to the side away from the main group, they are obviously in charge. "You all, as you should already know, are part of an independent organization, known as Obsidian Corporation, that works outside of and beyond the various Ruling Powers in the sector. You have been recruited from all over Terran and/or Protoss space and all walks of life. You have been selected to be a part of an expedition to new and uncharted territory." The transport is now through the atmosphere and beginning to descend into the hole that is well protected by a decently sized Terran and Protoss base. "An ancient Xel-Naga installation that predates everything previously found in Koprulu has been found deep beneath the ice of a frozen world that had once been lush and green. The installation is mostly intact and inside a moderately sized dome from a long since deactivated shield. The most interesting thing however is the large 30' diameter ring covered in strange symbols."

The wall behind the man giving the briefing comes alive showing sectional pictures of a large ring with strange markings and what looked like constellations on the inner ring. "Upon closer examination the ring, which has been identified as a variant Xel-Naga warp gate, has a single set of coordinates locked in, which is in the form of 9 of the symbols on the inner part of the ring. We dialed the address and got a solid connection as well as managed to send a probe through. There is an instillation just like the one on this side except that it seems to be in much better shape and much warmer. It was also discovered we would be able to send a decent sized expedition through the gate before the power source depletes. You are that expedition! Anyone have any questions before we leave and this is your last chance to back out?!"

You are part of the Expedition specializing in one of various skill sets. Medical personnel, Military, Scientists et cetera. This RP is not going to take place in the Koprulu sector nor even in the Milky Way. You'll begin on the Hercules-class Transport ship as the briefing is wrapping up.[b] If you have ever watched the TV series Stargate Atlantis yes this is similar. There will be some humans scattered on different worlds but will generally have very little in the way of tech and be entirely native to that galaxy. Also there won't be any contact with the Koprulu sector for a while in the RP as the gate won't have the power for an intergalactic wormhole thus trade with the indigenous populations will be a must, more friends is a good thing. Interstellar wormholes between gates will be the main mode of travel between planets and star system.

[b]There will NOT be any zerg allowed no 'ifs, ands or buts' about it.
CMC grade Power armor is allowed but please keep its use to a minimum unless the group has gone off world and even then please try to keep use to minimum and have lighter armor available to your character. Protoss may of course have zealot suits or High Templar armor etc. but please don't have an immortal/dragoon or mech bigger than a sentry or observer(an observer is sketchy to have though and I will have to debate on it) there will also be several protoss probes but their ability to warp in buildings will be nullified given the distances involved. Also going to limit the numbers, and maybe the powers, of Psionic Terrans. I would love a decent mix of scientists, medical personnel and military crew, now this does not limit scientists and medical personnel from having weapons or combat experience/training/abilities but please don't only make military personnel. Just about everyone will be going on off world missions.

If you wish me to fish out a character from the old Gate Project I can.

^Jester^
Name: Feldraxium
Race: Protoss
Age: 994
Skill Sets and/or primary field of training: Heavy Support Platform, Anti-Armor Platform
Abilities: Cluster Missile, Sentinel, Overcharged Blast, Barrier
Appearance: Normal Immortal, rocket pods attached above the 'head' of the Immortal with their own adjustable platform, allowing them to aim up higher or down lower. The Immortal also has a lighter yellow scheme with a Black head and barrels. Ends of the feet are red, possibly dried blood from stepping on various enemies.
Equipment: Modified Immortal (Protoss Missile Racks, Sentinel Detection System, Enhanced Shield Generator)
Backstory: Feldraxium has been through more battles than he cares to keep track of, both before and after he was put in his Immortal. He has seen thousands of planets and seen hundreds of species, even forced to kill a few. Although he volunteered to be put in a Dragoon first, he didn't regret the chance to get vengeance on the Zerg which put him there.
With the Fall of Aiur, Feldraxium no longer found some satisfaction in killing Zerg, regretting that he had forced himself to continue fighting, but he did not regret serving in combat. Becoming somewhat of a legend among the Protoss warriors, Feldraxium has been at the head of several successful charges, and stood his ground in several defense operations.
With the war being over, he found himself restless, wanting to go out once more, to see places. When word came of an operation to a place beyond a Xel'naga Gate, Feldraxium was said to have 'charged to the nearest shuttle and demanded the pilot to take off'.' Although in reality it wasn't that brazen, he still requested to go, and they did nothing to keep him from going.

^Steelwolf^

Race: Terran

Back-story: Aya was always gifted from birth they say. She was able to skip most of grade school and head to college where she amazed everyone by getting her PHD at the age of 22 in 3 fields. She is one of the most gifted people when it comes to the sciences. She married her life time best friend Jack that she knew from childhood. She was asked to join the team because of her skills even though she is 7 months pregnant. Aya's family could not be prouder her mother Jeannette, her father a Lt. General Yoshi and her older brothers Tenchi and Hiroshi.
Appearance- 5'3" earthy brown long hair and almond brown eyes, Small build but is pregnant so yeah and very bookish looking.

^Zarkun^
Name: Rave
Race: Human
Age: 26
Skill Set: Advanced CQC training, Wilderness survival skills, Combat Lifesaver, Hand-to-Hand specialist
Equipment: Shield blade, twin SMGs, M-128 semi-auto 12 gauge shotgun, Halo 4 Venator armor painted white and forest green
Appearance: 5'10", blue, spiky hair, ice blue eyes, 195 lbs, thin, but deceptively strong.
Abilities: Shield Bearer, Supressive Fire, Charge, Incendiary Rounds, Plasma Coating, Enhanced Reflexes
Back story: Rave was born on an unimportant planet known as Roxis X. The only feature of note was the rich mineral nodes that were hidden in the crevasses between the mesas that made up most of the planet surface. The cities on each mesa preferred to live independently of the other mesas, resulting in many nations of varying sizes depending on the size of the mesa. Rave was born to a family who lived in the third most powerful "country," in a high end hospital. The mesas all fought for control of the mineral nodes, as whoever held the most nodes held the most sway with the Dominion representatives there on the planet.
Rave was taught how to fight from a young age, his father a decorated veteran of the Crevasse Wars, and taught how to use all the firearms the military issued, but focused mainly on close combat weapons like SMGs, shotguns and carbines. When he turned 18, Roxis was annexed into the Dominion and he was given an opportunity to enlist with the Dominion military. He served with them for six years before going freelance as a mercenary. Was offered a position on the team by his old CO Jamal Jones for his close quarters and hand-to-hand skills.

^Warhawk^
Name: Nathan Southwest
Race: Terran
Age: 21
Skill Sets and/or primary field of training: Engineer, Jack of all sciences, survivalist
Abilities: Analyze, Survivalist
Appearance: 5' 8", short jagged mop of dirty blond hair, wary hazel eyes, trim and fit with a number of old scars.
Equipment: 6" utility knife, pistol in a concealed holster, omni-tool, other lab gear.
Backstory: Rescued off the streets at the age of 12 by an eccentric millionaire businessman, Nathan doesn't speak of his life before that, but a nasty set of scars as well as a habitually nervous and semi-paranoid attitude speak for him. His adopted father gave Nathan access to the best education money could buy which he took the fullest advantage of. Devouring knowledge, he showed a broad range of interests ranging from biology to engineering. In addition to his studies, Nathan also put a sizable chunk of his spare time into self-defence classes, both firearms training and hand-to-hand combat. Through happenstance luck or fate, Nathan heard about the mission and signed on without a second thought.
Personality: Assumably on account of his past, Nathan tends to be shy and introverted, not much for idle chatter. However, while working, he tends to open up more, as he forgets his problems and gets completely engrossed in his work. Often stutters when in awkward or uncomfortable situations. He has an intense dislike of weapons and violence, but seems perfectly willing to use them if absolutely necessary.

Appearance: 5'10", blue, spiky hair, ice blue eyes, 195 lbs, thin, but deceptively strong.
Abilities: Shield Bearer, Supressive Fire, Charge, Incendiary Rounds, Plasma Coating (Coats his sword with a super heated layer of metal for a short period of time), Enhanced Reflexes (In a close quarters fight, Rave reacts faster than other soldiers)
Back story: Rave was born on an unimportant planet known as Roxis X. The only feature of note was the rich mineral nodes that were hidden in the crevasses between the mesas that made up most of the planet surface. The cities on each mesa preferred to live independently of the other mesas, resulting in many nations of varying sizes depending on the size of the mesa.

I think I'll just recycle Rave if that's alright.

Edit-I'll quote this, but here it is.

Overcharged Blast: Boost the energy in primary weapons, allowing for a powerful blast. Needs to be cooled down afterward
Barrier: Routes power from Locomotion to a enhanced shield module, creating a wide shield for allies to use as cover.

I do remember something about Rave and the Colonel having some kind of prior relationship but I don't remember ever getting anything specific on it from you.

Yes, yes I am. Seeing as A-32 isn't moving very fast... (to the point of possibly being dead) I'd like to see some use out of this character. That's all.

EDIT1:
Whoops! forgot to stick some abilities on him. On sec.
