Eagle Soul Background (not required to be read):
The Eagle Soul’s founding goes back to before the Great War. These early merc’s would take almost anyone as long as they weren’t from the Confederacy. They did many jobs including the destruction of a Confederate Battlecruiser, sending in their very first Phantom to do so. This Phantom was able to infiltrate the Battlecruiser, set up charges on the reactor’s coolers, and escape; all in twenty-four hours without any cloaking.
Another mission undertaken was to take down a Kel-Morian mining operation from the Confederacy. This was done by a few of their Predators, tearing through the defenses of the low weapon and armor capabilities of the Kel-Morians. They had this done quickly and were paid very generously.
However, their recruiting became stricter after a betrayal. A group of Phantom’s were sent to take down a Umojan colony, so the Kel-Morians could move in, but found the Umojan’s waiting and the Phantom’s were killed. Soon the result was traced back to an Umojan who had joined and informed the Umojan Protectorate of every job the Eagle Soul’s received. After this the Eagle Soul’s expelled everyone who had any military connections to governments, and only took in recruits with no prior fighting experience. This also produced stronger mercs as they had hard fighting experience without any training other than how to use a gun.
Layout of ‘The Roost’:
Section A: Landing Bay, Residence
Section B: Training Area, Armory, Gear Shop
Section C: Research Lab, Mission Control
Rules of Roleplay:
-You may only gain new equipment through the Gear Shop and spending credits, or missions.
-Same goes with abilities as above, except with Research.
-You can only gain credits through missions
-No custom classes or weapons
-You cannot be an elite fighter and start pulling bullsh!t of you avoiding situations of extreme injury (i.e. if you pushed right up to a Zealot to stab them or shoot them point blank, or even within five meters, you will be critically injured, as I do not kill characters unless the bullsh!t level gets too high)
You will start out in a shuttle heading to a space station called ‘The Roost’ which is the home of the Eagle Soul mercenaries. When you arrive you will be given the items you would have requested for as a choice. I will RP the NPC mercenaries and the top five mercenaries, which would be the leaders. They will give you missions. Every now and again I will give control of an evil NPC to one of the RPers to use, but not often.
Backstory: (This should include why/how you were recruited)
Name: Stephani Wilson
Appearance: Long brown hair, hazel eyes, slender and lithe physique. Very dark blue armor.
R-1 Operations Rifle Mk. 2, Simple Combat Knife, Smoke Grenades
Backstory: She was always "different", and her parents quickly found out she was, in fact, mildly psionic. They feared she'd be taken by the Dominion, and so for the first years of her life she'd been hidden, unable to make contact with the outside world, and very over-protected in general. Lately, with her old enough to make her own decisions, they decided to allow her to go off somewhere if she so pleased, but only with their permission. She was skilled with Rifles, as in much of her lonely childhood she'd practiced shooting guns, and met a Eagle Soul, who, in secret from her parents, she befriended. In the end, they didn't allow her to join the Eagle Souls when she asked, so one night she ran off, and now here she finds herself.
Name: Chris Hansen
Appearance: 6' even, shoulder length jet black hair, grey eyes
Gear: O-23 Carbine, P-09 Semi-Automatic Pistol, Fragmentation Grenades
Backstory: He always enjoyed hunting, going on the odd yearly Zerg hunt and mostly small game. Of course that was accompanied with sighting in his rifle and pistol, but outside of that, he didn't shoot much. Chris had just finished a hunt on Mar Sara when the recruiter approached him. Seeing nothing to loose as he had no family to speak of, he agreed.
Name: Tonya "Sparks" Blue
Appearance: mid-neck length brownish blonde hair, athletic but small build, blue eyes.
Gear: P-09 Semi-Automatic Pistol, KL Neo-Steel Shield, Net Gun
Backstory: Tonya knew what she wanted to do all growing up. She wanted to be a medivac pilot. Her father taught her the basics of how to fly as a teenager, but he died shortly after. Tonya's mother spent the last of their money so Tonya could get a good education under the condition she couldn't use it to become a pilot. Tonya hesitantly accepted and decided to become a medic instead, because she still wanted to be near the battle helping soldiers. A recruiter approached her fresh out of collage and she accepted hastily as her other options were limited.
Name: Mary Lyn Tianna (usually just called Lyn)
Appearance: slightly athletic build, Shoulder length auburn hair, 5'10", sapphire blue eyes,
Gear: B-7 Pulse Rifle, Grapple Claw, Volt Grenade
Backstory: She has had an affinity for machines and computers for most of her life. She graduated from a good college with straight A's and degrees in Mechanics, Computer Tech and Engineering. From time to time she would visit the gym to work out or do a tiny practice boxing match. Lyn almost never boxed and when she did 90% of the time she lost. She was recruited for her abilities with machines and computers. Lyn was approached by a recruiter while job searching in a cafe near the college she had just graduated from, she accepted wanting to rebel against what her parents wanted her to do even though she never really had a strong tie with her parents in the first place.
Name: Francis Alexander Jackson (most call him by his last name)
Appearance: short blonde hair, blue eyes, and a face and build that make him look much younger. 5'8'' tall.
Gear: J-2 Energy Shield, Flare Gun, Net Gun, L-2 Plasma Pistol (if I can only have three, leave out the pistol)
Backstory: Francis Alexander Jackson was the son of wealthy businesspeople who were shot as the result of a political scandal where they were accused of plotting to overthrow Mengsk. He was thirteen when this happened, and with no other relations, was forced to live on the streets of Korhal. Now, something like this would normally harden another person, but Jackson (as the other orphans called him) was not like that at all. As if to counteract the cruelty of the Dominion, he became the caretaker and confidant of the orphans of Korhal, mending cuts, setting broken arms, and occasionally giving a reassuring hug and listening to their problems. He had been doing this for seven years when the recruiter came up to him and offered a position as a mercenary. He accepted for two reasons: to raise money for the orphanage he was planning to make, and to finally, hopefully take revenge on the Dominion...
Name: Ian Collins
Appearance: Medium athletic build. Soft round facial features. Short clean cut brown hair. Dashing green eyes.
Gear: L-52 Assault Rifle, M-19 Automatic Pistol, Fragmentation grenade
Backstory: Ian shot for sport as a teenager, but gave it up when he went to collage for computer programming. He barely graduated sane as he hated it. He felt like his life would be too boring lived behind a desk. He was approached by a recruiter and accepted hastily.
Name: Robert Swanson
Appearance: Stocky build, strong arms from working with mechanical devices so much, black hair, brown eyes.
Gear:SR-1 Shotgun, Grapple Claw, Volt Grenades
Backstory: He was really good with mechanical and electronic devices, so he got a degree for engineering. He accepted when the recruiter approached him, having nothing better to do.
Name: Natalie Nagirrek
Appearance: Natalie is a slim, energetic woman, is about 5' 9". Has long red hair she wears back and startling blue eyes.
Gear:T-8 Sniper Rifle, Simple Psyblade, Smoke grenades
Backstory: Natalie grew up orphaned in the slums of Deadman's Port, and in order to survive, she became cunning, rather then bold, quick, rather then strong. Only one man ever tried to take advantage of her when she was younger. That man is still lying in the gutter where Natalie left him. Eventually escaping the ghettos, of Deadman's Port, Natalie was caught infiltrating a top security Dominion bank, in the process of making off with over 200,000 credits. She then spent a few weeks in prison, until being busted out of the prison by some Eagle Souls members. The members gave her a choice: Enlist or rot in a Dominion jail cell. Naturally she chose the former.

Without a family he no longer caried about life and started working in the frontlines and found a love for heavy armor.
