Joseph Roslin aka Blade
Battlefield Tag: A498/ Alpha 498
Personality: Joseph is a man who knows what needs to be done and when to do it. Having served as a Hoplite and then a Gladiator, he’s a seasoned war vet against alien menaces. With the first Gladiator enhancements, he went from outgoing and generally friendly to withdrawn and distant, only talking to his men when in the field and really only talking to the other Gladiators after the process was complete. With the infiltration and destruction of the Magnus Empire’s treasure ship, the program was determined successful and the Gladiators were upgraded, now including less social awkwardness and sociopath tendencies, something Joseph was spared from, and more normality.
Back story: Joseph was nine years old when the UESC took him from his home and replaced him with a clone. The reason they’d taken him is because they were going to make him into a super soldier, the first generation of Gladiators known as Hoplites. He went through years of enhancement and training to be ready for the final quelling of the Koprulu Uprisings, and when the day came, he and his fellow Hoplites delivered. Soon the Zerg and Nerazim were forced into hiding, and the Khalai…well, they’d been gone for a long time before that. Having helped in the returning of the Koprulu Sector to Earth. After words, several more enhancements were made and the new generation of Hoplites dubbed Gladiators. However, this ended in the Gladiators being more distant. Shortly after, threee Gladiators were assigned to infiltrate and destroy the Magnus treasure ship, a mission that was successfully executed and resulted in the upgrading of the armor and the retirement of the three Gladiators, of which Joseph was one of the three, who carried out the mission from action until further notice. It was now Joseph’s job to train a new, less reclusive, generation of Gladiators. The only question he had? Would they cut it against an enemy that knows no retreat?
Equipment: Energy blade, X91 Typhoon Assault Rifle, SW-5 Shotgun (gunpowder).
AI: Serrator- Serrator is an AI who excels at CQC and mid-range combat calculations and is a perfect match for Joseph as he was programmed with all the blade and CQC knowledge humanity has. Is a bit too honest, but is good natured.

Backstory: He was taken into the Gladiator program at age 10, 17 years ago. He was augmented to be one of the first Gladiators. This process turned him from a nice and gentle child into a cold blooded killer. He should exceptional stealth qualities. When he turned 16 the augmenting was finished and he was ready for battle. He had gotten through many trials in which he once took out an entire line of artillery by himself by placing three explosives. This earned him a spot as the infiltrator of the strike force on the Magnus Capital Ship only a year later.
He was the first on and claimed a spot for the other two to arrive. He was the youngest and least experience of the team, but he also proved the most useful for picking off enemies silently. After this mission he was paired with his AI Shadowfax. When the new augmentation program came out he refused to be a part of it. He was worried such a thing might cause him to lose his combat effectiveness and make him start to give his opponents mercy. Due to this he is still distant from everyone else and can be. He is always watching and waiting for his prey. When he was pulled out from his scheduled missions to train some new Gladiators he was disgusted. He and Shadowfax both believed it to be a waste of their talents. He is willing to help out, but is better avoided.
