Yes, it’s that time again. We’ve finished an arc of the RPG’s story and are on the verge of beginning the next. Before we get started with the post bonanza, let me make something clear:

Until your character is approved in this thread by the Trinary & Friends®, DO. NOT. POST. IN. THE. RPG.

PLEASE don't 'tl;dr' the following. This took a lot of work, and it's for your benefit. Most character artwork is either from my (Fritz') or wonton bob's perspective, so if we interpreted your character different from what you had in mind... well, too bad I guess. With that said...

**RPG SUMMARY** (UP TO LATE AUGUST, 0087)

The AEUG’s 4th Escort Squadron (commanded by Capt. Carl Abbey) left the moon on July 14th, 0087, guarding 3 unmarked transport ships. Shortly after leaving friendly airspace, the 4th was ambushed by the combined Titans/EFSF Taskforce Echo (commanded by Ltcdr. Andrewson Trent). The initial skirmish at the Moon ended in roughly a draw, with one of the AEUG transports being lost in the opening volley. The AEUG took no other losses, save a Salamis Kai with a damaged engine, the Kukum, and a totaled Nemo from the Chuikov.

The AEUG fleet advanced to Side 4, 27th Bunch "Houston" (because of a small AEUG intelligence team's presence there) to get quick repairs for the Kukum and for rest, but were tailed by Taskforce Echo. While the 4th waited outside the bunch, Fritz Ashlyn went ahead in his Nemo to meet a contact working inside Houston to arrange a safe dock. While there, he was discovered by Titans agents and attacked. Fritz managed to find his contact, Kujo Kobashi, and the two evacuated the latter's apartment to alert the fleet. On the way to the dock section of the colony, Fritz contacted Capt. Abbey and relayed which dock was safe to land in. The 4th landed, and found that the colony's EFSF garrison was sympathetic and willing to provide repairs.

Meanwhile, the Titans had sailed into the side, and found out which bunch the AEUG were docked at. Lt. Wolf Ritter launched of his own accord with just a few wingmen to prepare an attack on the unaware AEUG ships. Massilion Carde and Nick Te'Litha were sent inside the bunch on foot to hunt down Fritz. Trent, the Titans commander, was forced to attack directly because Wolf had launched unordered. More mobile suits were launched to assist his attack.

The EFSF from the colony saw the attack coming and responded with a 4 man MS team, 3 of which were eventually shot down in trying to slow the Titans attack. An alert was raised in the docks, and the AEUG prepared to defend themselves. Abbey told the local Federals that the AEUG was ready to leave the colony to avoid trouble as soon as basic repairs were finished.

Wolf Ritter had arrived at the dock, however, and threatened to open fire on civilian traffic if the AEUG didn't surrender. Abbey lied to Wolf, telling him that if he gave the AEUG fleet 10 minutes, they would fully surrender. Wolf rejected the offer, giving Abbey 5 minutes to arrange a surrender, threatening to destroy civilian shuttles to use as blockading debris every 30 seconds afterward. Wolf saw Fritz' hidden Nemo inside one of the other nearby docks and blew it up. Inside the colony, Massilion and Nick found Fritz and Kujo Kobashi, and tailed them to the dock where Kujo's Nemo was in storage.

With just one minute left, Wolf shot at another shuttle as a warning, crippling it. Abbey had formulated a plan, and prepared to set it in motion. The Titans had made a mistake: Wolf and Stukov's Marasais were the only units guarding the dock exit, their wingmen had been tangled up by the Federal units from the colony. Abbey gave the order, and a blitz of Nemos rushed out of the hangar, providing covering fire. The AEUG fleet opened up with all of their main guns, covering themselves and the transports as the lead ships started leaving; they turned the dock exit into a funnel of mega particle fire. Wolf, in retaliation, destroyed the civilian shuttle and engaged John Arken. Inside Houston, Massilion and Nick caught up to Fritz and Kujo as they got to the dock where Kobashi's mobile suit was hidden. They exchanged gunfire, and Kujo fled into the dock area, quickly followed by the other three.

The Titan fleet moved itself on an intercept path, but hadn't counted on the rebel Federal units being able to hear them relay their orders on the friendly radio channel. A Federal GM pilot named Michiko Sato warned the Gela that Taskforce Echo was moving to contain the fleeing AEUG. The 4th moved in the direction of Side 2, taking up a stronger box formation. Wolf Ritter, growing frustrated and angry that his attack seemed to be failing, entered the colony and threatened to blow up an elementary school if the AEUG didn't surrender. Federal security units responded, and Wolf destroyed one of them and part of the school. Wolf exited Houston, bluffing that the Titan fleet was preparing to fire nuclear missiles at the colony. The colony's EFSF commander, Yurius von Gyuden, tried to call Wolf's bluff, but Capt. Abbey intervened after Andrewson Trent made an announcement backing up Wolf's story. Von Gyuden lied, offering himself to the Titans as a prisoner and saying that the rebellion had been only a few units. Yurius arranged a ceasefire with Echo, and control of loyalist Federal Forces at 27th Bunch were turned over to LtCol. David Kleinhans.

The battle outside died down, with both sides withdrawing their mobile suits for refueling and damage control. Fritz found and activated Kujo's Nemo, and made his escape with a wounded Kobashi. Michiko, the Federal GM pilot, decided to defect, and landed on the Gela. The 4th escaped, with damage to several ships and the loss of Nemos, and they set course for Side 2 where their first delivery was scheduled.

Taskforce Echo docked at 27th, and Commander Trent and a new arrival, Commodore Wolf Ritter XXIV (commander of a new Alexandria-class, the Kirov), met with Kleinhans to discuss the internal uprising. Echo underwent quick repair and resupply before they continued their pursuit of the 4th. Trent transferred his command to the Kirov, with Commodore Ritter stationed onboard as an “observer”, and pilots were reassigned to the Alexandria, which just happened to be loaded with new mobile suits and equipment.

The 4th arrived at Side 2, 18th Bunch with little incident, and linked up with the Side’s AEUG “security” ship, the Hamburg. The cargo transfer went off without a hitch (even though only half of the goods had arrived due to the loss of Transport 1), and Abbey made a deal with the Hamburg’s captain, André Loweno, that supplied the 4th with three ballutes and a Magellan reentry capsule. On July 18th, the 4th was joined by the Hamburg and the reinforced unit turned their attention to earth and the final cargo drop.

July 21st saw the 4th in orbit, closely followed by Taskforce Echo. The Titans, resupplied back at Side 4, had also had the luck to run into the Federal 38th Patrol Squadron, led by Commander William Spangrud, who were quickly pressed into service. A running battle in orbit began, during which the Magellan capsule (piloted by Fritz Ashlyn) and its escorts (John Arken, Marcus Allen and James MacAlpin) safely entered the atmosphere closely followed by a small pursuit unit (Aleksandr Stukov, Mercedes Ritter, and Erebus Jones). The 38th Patrol Squadron was entirely destroyed due to Spangrud's rashness and arrogance, giving the 4th an opening to escape Echo's numerical superiority.

The 4th’s drop team landed safely at the Karaba-controlled Vandenberg base in California, escorted by the famous Audhumla. At the nearby Titans/EFF Hickory Base, the Kirov’s drop team also landed, joining up with an attack force that was forming up with the help of the Garuda-class Mina Harker. The Karaba forces pressed the AEUG representatives into service to help with an attack on Hickory Base, pre-empting the planned Titans offensive. During the fighting, Amuro Ray shot down an experimental Asshimar unit piloted by the Titan ace Gilliarme Lasalle, though not without severely damaging his own Rick Dias in the process. Although they shot down a number of Titan Hizacks, the Karaba forces ultimately decided to break off their raid and withdraw to Vandenberg, whereupon Stukov immediately formed a pursuit wing in hopes of maximizing damage. With a number of regulars and Titans, Stukov led his attack all the way into Vandenberg, but the Karaba defense, with the aid of the AEUG forces, ultimately forced them to fall back. After the Federation was driven back, Karaba prepared a missile silo launch system to put the 4th’s drop team back in orbit to be picked up.

Meanwhile, in orbit, the 4th had managed to put distance between themselves and Taskforce Echo, and had a small window to conduct emergency repairs. At this point the 4th began picking up a weak distress signal from a damaged Irish-class battleship, the Dervish.

On earth, John Arken and Marcus Allen agreed to stay behind with the Karaba, and Hayato Kobayashi informed Fritz that in exchange for the badly needed supplies the 4th had dropped, they would be sending a dozen Rick Diases to space for the AEUG. Once the mobile suits were loaded into the launch vehicles, the Audhumla took off to provide security and Fritz and James MacAlpin (along with the transferred Karaba pilot, Wes Curren) were sent back into orbit.

Hickory’s commander, Colonel Nathan Cross, launched a bombing mission shortly thereafter, and Vandenberg was leveled in the attack. Gilliarme Lasalle was transferred to Taskforce Echo as punishment for totaling the Asshimar, and the Echo unit was sent back into space using the mass driver at California Base. Unbeknownst to the AEUG pilots involved, Celeine Caro’d the field reporter snuck onboard one of the shuttles and hitched a ride into space.

During the earthside operation, the 4th caught up to and formed up around the Dervish. As it turned out, the Dervish had been operating in orbit, and as a result of several battles suffered serious damage and the deaths of ten of their dozen pilots as well as the captain and most of the bridge crew. Abbey transferred his command to the Dervish for the pickup operation, and soon Echo was back on the scene.

One last battle ensued in orbit, leading to the destruction of the 4th’s Kukum and Echo’s Andropov as well as numerous pilot deaths on both sides. The Titan pilot, Ed Rigney, was captured by the Hamburg’s MS team, but he is critically injured and remains in a coma. The 4th manages to escape Taskforce Echo yet again, and they set course for Side 4. On the way, through Celeste Angelina and Celeine Caro’d, Fritz Ashlyn learns that not only is Wolf Ritter piloting a mobile suit for Echo (and that Nick may want him dead), but also that Nick Te’litha was engaged to Celeine’s sister.

After the series of orbital battles came to a conclusion, the AEUG 4th Advance Squadron and the Irish-class Dervish retreated to Von Braun City. The Titans/EFSF Combined Taskforce Echo pursued, but were recalled to Gryps for an upcoming operation.

At Gryps, the pilots of Taskforce Echo were given shore leave. It was during this time that Alpha Team pilot Erebus Jones was killed by a homemade bomb thrown by an angry teenager. In the ensuing security lockdown, all Titan personnel were recalled to the garrison. Echo was re-designated the Titan Autonomous Raider Taskforce Echo and had its EFSF elements removed, with two new ships assigned to replace them and also ace pilots Alpha A. Bate and Lon Kou. They were also assigned to take part in the upcoming operation to capture the Von Braun City port.

The 4th Escort Squadron, meanwhile, docked at Von Braun City, whereupon the squadron's sponsor, Sir Maximilian Gates III, wheeled and dealed with the other AEUG sponsors in order for his squadron to retain the Dervish and Hamburg permanently. He was successful, and thus the 4th was redesignated the 4th Advance Squadron, now a regular combat unit rather than an escort detail. The 4th also received replacements and new ships, including Yurius von Gyuden, escaped from incarceration, to take command of the Gela, and OYW aces Roy Grunwald and Ian Greydon

The 4th Advance Squadron was assigned to take a defensive position above Von Braun City. It was during this time that the Titan fleets and taskforces arrived to carry out Operation Apollo. Jamaican Dannigan, the man in charge of the operation, had a last-second idea to use Taskforce Echo, with an attached Republic of Zeon unit (the 9th Expedition Squadron), as a diversion in order to draw the bulk of the AEUG forces in Von Braun away from the port. Echo was sent into low orbit to approach the city.

After much determination, the AEUG mistakenly decided that the approaching Taskforce Echo comprised the main Titan offensive, and sent the 4th Squadron to intercept it. After a brief, yet vicious, encounter on the Lunar surface, Echo received confirmation that the diversion had been successful, and that Echo was cleared to withdraw. The 4th, meanwhile, did not receive news of the fall of Von Braun due to Minovsky interference.

Still under the mistaken impression that Taskforce Echo had comprised the main Titan offensive, and unable to contact the conquered Von Braun City, those in charge of the 4th Squadron found themselves confused and in a conundrum. Fritz Ashlyn, however, had learned during the battle that they had been fighting the same unit the 4th had faced in the orbital battles and at Houston Colony. Carl Abbey wanted to withdraw his unit back to the city to assess the situation and not leave the port undefended, but the sponsor, Sir Maximilian Gates, urged him not to let the Titan unit escape so easily. In order to fulfill a personal agenda with the Ritter family, Fritz sided with Gates' view, and thus Abbey grudgingly agreed to take off after Echo.

With the 4th Squadron in pursuit, Nick Te'litha convinced Andrewson Trent to turn and finish the fight. Nick's reasons were inspired largely by the revelation that his late fiancée's sister, Celeine Caro'd, was aboard the Dervish, and that the ace AEUG pilot Celeste Angelina had some kind of access to captured Titan pilot Edward Rigney. Trent, interested in tying up unfinished business with the AEUG formation he'd failed to defeat at Houston and in orbit, agreed to turn and fight, but not until Echo had reached the shoal zone of Side 2, former Hatte Province.

In the Side 2 shoal, Echo prepared an ambush. The 4th Squadron, meanwhile, stopped just outside the debris. Once again, Abbey preferred to call off pursuit and return to Von Braun, but Fritz and Gates twisted his arm until he agreed to at least send a small scouting party to check the immediate area. The Salamis Kai-class vessels Gela and Thunderchild proceeded inward.

The two cruisers were soon overwhelmed by Echo's trap. The rest of the 4th moved in to help the ships pull out, but soon enough the entire squadron was surrounded by what was apparently a much larger Titan unit than they had been pursuing. In what proved to be the messiest, most violent battle between the 4th Squadron and Taskforce Echo yet, the Gela and Thunderchild were both lost, as was Echo's Hades, along with heavy mobile suit losses on both sides. Deaths included former Zeon OYW ace Roy Grunwald, the recently-defected Yurius von Gyuden, and Ritter family member Mercedes Ritter. OYW Federal ace Lon Kou was captured in the course of the fighting, and Dante Diotrephes was put under arrest after attempting to assassinate team member Nick Te'litha during the chaos. Sir Maximilian Gates was rendered into a catatonic state.

In spite of being surrounded and ambushed, however, the 4th managed to escape without suffering complete annihilation. With the Dervish's Team 3 holding off and defeating Echo's rear flank attack (but not without the loss of almost all of the Hamburg Team’s Nemos) and forcing the Buxoro and Ipswich to retreat, the ship's Team 1, along with New Yark Team troublemaker Pan Heyden, smashing through and completely destroying the Republic of Zeon unit, the 4th had a clear lane of retreat back out the way they came. The apparent Titan reinforcements proved to be newly-developed inflatable dummies. The AEUG unit managed to fight their way out of the shoal, and Trent, disappointed and with a badly battered taskforce, opted not to pursue them.

With their units heavily damaged, the 4th had to wait outside the shoal for repairs. They received communications from the Argama, but were unable to respond due to damaged comm lasers. Fritz came clean to Abbey about his true intentions for voting to pursue Echo, and the 4th learned that Blex Forer had been killed, that Von Braun City had been captured and subsequently liberated, and that the Titans had made a failed attempted at dropping 27th Bunch onto Luna.

Echo, after their disastrous victory, limped back to Gryps. Trent lambasted his subordinates for infighting and self-centeredness during the battle and called upon them to work as a brotherhood from then on. Upon arrival at the Titans colony, the fragile unity of the taskforce was tested when a Titans military police detachment removed Dante Diotrephes and Alexandra Engel from Echo under orders from Bask Om. With the departure of the two longtime pilots came the arrival of new equipment as Taskforce Echo was supplied with three new Barzam mobile suits to be used by Delta Team. In addition, another member of one of the Ritter’s subordinate families, Sven Haksson, was among the replacement pilots that joined the fleet. Gilliarme and the other members of Delta Team continued to solidify their bond as a fighting unit as Samantha’s hard façade began to fade and Shin regained his veteran’s sense of confidence.

After returning to Amman, the 4th was forced to wait for over six weeks for repairs and reorganization. The lost Gela and Thunderchild were not to be replaced, but Gates acquired the services of two Anaheim Electronics engineers, Dr. Gerhard Merkwürdigliebe and Rem Banner. The Rick Dias teams were reorganized, including bringing Pan Heyden up to the Dervish. With orders to meet with the Argama and escort it to a meeting with the newly arrived Axis Zeons, the 4th set out for Side 2.

Back on autonomous raiding and patrolling operations, Taskforce Echo set out for Side 2. Once again, the two units crossed paths in the contested Side. The resulting battle saw the Chuikov take heavy damage with both fleets having several mobile suits destroyed or damaged, but the units disengaged before fighting could reach the same intense level that it had during their previous encounter in the shoal zone. During the battle, the bridge of the Kirov was partially destroyed in the fighting due to deliberate action by Nick Te’Litha, and Commodore Ritter was killed. Echo, having a minor advantage as a result of the actions, prepared to chase the 4th down, but one of the last shots fired by the AEUG ships managed to badly damage one of the Kirov's engines, and the Titans were forced to let the 4th get away. Echo retired to Ayers City, where it would spend the next month getting the Kirov back into fighting shape.

Meanwhile, the 4th had fled into Side 2 itself. The damage to the Chuikov, as well as their other losses, made a stop at a friendly colony seem like a very good decision. They decided on Side 2's 21st Bunch, Quebec Colony, which had a local government sympathetic to the AEUG. However, an EFSF patrol unit in Side 2 discovered the 4th, and encountered them shortly before the 4th could dock at Quebec. The 4th was forced to engage the EFSF group, and managed to wipe them out fairly quickly, with little damage to themselves. However, Quebec's Mayor could no longer risk having an AEUG unit dock at his colony, and so the 4th decided to return to Amman. While the 4th's crew went on leave in the lunar city, Abbey and the rest of the ship's commanding officers met with AEUG sponsors. Due to the Chuikov's damage, and the amount of time needed to affect repairs, it was decided that the Chuikov would be replaced by the Balrampur, which would inherit the Chuikov's remaining Nemo pilots.

During Echo’s time at Ayers City, Trent met with Mayor Pinefield and discussed the Titans’ newly formed alliance with Haman Karn and the Zeons from Axis, and the soldiers of Echo were granted a month of leave. Their stay was cut short, however upon the arrival of a strange man named Capt. Black Friday who claimed to be a representative of Paptimus Scirocco. He provided Trent with orders signed by Bask Om that, among other duties, reassigned Echo to operate out of the Gate of Zedan. By early December when the fleet’s repairs were finished and the move to the asteroid base was complete, new equipment was installed on the Kirov and special cargo was loaded onboard to be delivered to another raider taskforce.

After a simple reorganization Echo left the Gate of Zedan to carry out Bask Om’s orders, once again taking the taskforce back to Hatte. Near Side 2, 18th Bunch, the fleet stopped to wait for a rendezvous with Taskforce Juliet to complete the cargo transfer. With Taskforce Juliet nowhere in sight nearly 8 hours after the scheduled meeting time, Trent decided to carry out Echo’s other order to test the new equipment installed on their long-range communications laser. Things quickly turned sinister when it was revealed the equipment was a targeting device meant to send data to the Dogosse Gier as it was preparing to test fire the new Gryps colony laser. Despite Trent’s efforts to halt the transfer of targeting data the colony laser was successfully test fired at 40% capacity, striking 18th Bunch and killing its entire population.

With no time to reflect on what had just occurred, the missing remnant of Taskforce Juliet arrived, consisting of only the Alexandria-class ship the Latium and its mobile suits, with an AEUG fleet in hot pursuit. Echo’s mobile suits were deployed to protect the ships as the Kirov and Latium connected with each other for the cargo transfer. The attacking AEUG unit was wiped out entirely by the Titans MS teams, and the Latium prepared to leave the area. As Echo prepared to return to the Gate of Zedan, they were contacted by Black Friday who requested that they make a stop back at Ayers City before returning to their headquarters. Trent, wanting to find out about his connection to Paptimus Scirocco, reluctantly agreed.

That brings us to the current events of the RPG, which can be read in the ongoing threads...

Assignment: MS team CO, Endra-class Bindra.


Name: Kenneth Graden(Credit to Wonton bob for the nice character art)
Affliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Lieutenant Commander
Age/Date of Birth: 26 10/7/0062
Place of Birth: Side 3
Appearance:

Tall but muscular with Tawny hair cut very short and Hazel eyes.

Personality:

Strict and extremely Loyal to the Zabi family. Even with as little real experience as he has he often comes across as the "Old Solder"

Bio:

As a child he lived soaking up the Zabis ideals as his own. His father was a loyal solder and his mother worked as an aide in the Royal Palace. When war broke out his father was sent to the front lines where he proved an admirable and capable solder, winning many honors for himself and his family. Unfortunately Kenneth's father was killed in action during Zeon's failed attack on Jaburo; Kenneth views his father's death as a mark of pride for his family rather than a loss.

With his mother's support and fathers reputation behind him, he soon joined up himself. By that point however the war was entering it's final phases and his only actual combat experience was the Battle at A Bau A Que; in which, he managed to score 1 kill, an unlucky Federation Ball, before his Zaku II was shot out from under him.

He and his mother, both firm followers of the Zabi's Ideals, followed Mineava to Axis; where they remained throughout the period between the OYW and the Gryps conflict. Now being one of the few pilots with any real experience he was picked to accompany the advance fleet back to the earth Sphere. He hopes to assist Mineava's ascension to her rightful place of power and is willing to lay down his life to do so.

Assignment: MS pilot, Endra-class Bindra.


Name: Matthew Korbel
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Ensign
Age/Date of Birth: 21 / U.C. 0066
Place of Birth: Side 3 ( Bunch 38 ) Mahar
Appearance: 5'9 slender build with brown hair and grey eyes
Personality: Newly trained but has effortlessly attained a good grasp at piloting. Quiet and soft spoken but deep inside Matthew controls a hidden anger at those responsible for tearing his family apart, feelings which he uses while in the cockpit. He becomes hateful and malicious when piloting.

Bio:
Too young to have entered any conflict, could only watch both older brothers join the military and leave for war. In late 0079 his remaining family was forcefully evacuated from Mahar only to migrate to Side 6. Which was quietly aligned with the Principality of Zeon throughout most of the war. With one brother M.I.A. and the other killed during operation Solar Ray, Matthew grew up believing his brother's deaths were in vain causing him to distrust the Principality and question the way Side 3 was being governed.

Matthew spoke out against war and the military especially during the Stardust operation which he saw as a waste of resources and lives. Involved in several protests until late 0083 when the Titans were formed and the harassment and persecution of spacenoids began. In 0084 Matthew returns to Side 3 to plead with the Republic of Zeon to take action against atrocities being committed on civilians only to find out that the Republic is being run by a pro-Earth Federation puppet government, which does nothing to help colonies being targeted by the Titans.

This further infuriates Matthew who abhors war but sees no alternate way to stop the barbarity unleashed by the Federation. Confused and filled with anger, Matthew finally decides to follow in his brother's footsteps, seeing that their joining the Duchy and fight for Independence was a righteous cause. Wanting nothing to do with the Federation or the Republic, In early 0084 Matthew journeys to Axis to start a new life and does his part by joining its military and serving under the last remaining Zabi as his brothers did before. Matthew believes he's on the right path and begs to be forgiven by his dead brothers for not seeing their view sooner.

Assignment: MS team XO, Endra-class Bindra.


Name: Renard Baromsky
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Axis Zeon
Desired Rank: Lieutenant
Age/Date of Birth: 36; 10/27/0051
Place of Birth: Kiev (12th Bunch), Zarn Province (Side 1), Earth Federation

Appearance: 6'2" with a lean, muscular build. Light complexion with a haggard, slightly darker pallor. Brown eyes, dark brown hair cut short and combed back. Hard-featured Slavic face with a few scars and usually some stubble. Left half of his jaw is visibly prosthetic, with an artificial, rubbery look and of a color a bit too light to match the rest of his skin. His face is modeled mostly after this one. In fact, just imagine the face in the link, but with the facial hair not so concentrated in one area, and with a freaky half-prosthetic jaw.

Personality: Considered by others to be cold and aloof, and by many to be intimidating. Unnervingly comfortable with death in general and killing in particular. Efficient with handling tasks, and noted by past commanders to be obedient so long as commands given are decisive, but is known to take matters into his own hands if he perceives his superiors as being hesitant or indecisive.

Bio: Born in Side 1's Kiev colony, which was known for overcrowding, poverty, and rampant crime as well as a population almost entirely from East Europe and Russia. Involved in organized crime since his early teens and gained a reputation for efficiency, reliability, and indifference to death. Became the local mob's top enforcer by his late teens and widely considered the deadliest man on the colony by the time he was 20 years old.

Left Kiev in late 0072, shortly before a major crackdown on organized crime. Became wanted throughout the Federation for almost 200 counts of murder and many other charges. Went to Side 3, which by then had been a de facto sovereign nation for years. Found it practically impossible to get any meaningful work without citizenship; criminal sources of income were virtually nonexistant under the authoritarian government as well. Joined the Principality's small Foreign Legion to fast-track himself to citizenship.

Served five years of Foreign Legion service as an infantryman and gained his citizenship. Was invited to continue military service and accepted. Was retrained for mobile suits shortly thereafter. Was placed in the Mobile Assault Force during the military reorganization in 0078.

Served in the MAF during the One Week Battle and partook in gassing operations in Side 1. Severe damage to his Zaku II's cockpit during Operation British led to his jaw being crushed so that the left side was irreparable and had to be replaced with a prosthetic. Was deemed combat-ready in June and stationed in Granada. Frequently saw combat with reconaissance taskforces and raiding teams. Was among Kycilia's forces sent to A Baoa Qu and had his Zaku damaged in the battle fought there. Retreated with other remnant forces to Axis.

Served as an instructor for new pilots until advance squadrons were organized for Axis' return to the Earth Sphere, whereupon he was assigned to an Endra-class' mobile suit team.

Well, here goes. Hope it gets accepted.

Name: Garik "Face" Phanan
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Ensign
Age/Date of Birth: 23
Place of Birth: Side 3 (Unknown Bunch)
Appearance: 5'10" with wavy brown hair and brown eyes. Whipcord-lean build. Has a scar puckering from his right forehead, across his nose, to his left cheek
Personality: A bit of a jokester, but can get serious when the situation demands it.

Bio: Interestingly, he is a former child star of the early Zeon propaganda machine under the stage name of Ton Loran. His joking nature made him a natural comedy actor, and many Zeon fans expected that he would eventually become a household name.

However, a group of anti-spacenoid extremists kidnapped him three months before the outbreak of the OYW. A special forces team was sent to rescue him, resulting in a shoot-out between the two factions. Both the extremists and the special forces nearly killed each other, and "Face" ended up with a knife-slash across his face. Feeling some shame, he hid from his rescuers, who reported Ton Loran dead. As Garik Phanan, he assisted with entertaining Zeon Mobile Suit pilots during the OYW, and became fascinated with becoming a part of such a noble group.

After the war, Garik joined Axis after being conviced that Zeon had lost its way. He has been assigned to an advance team to help prepare for Axis' return to the Earth Sphere.

Name:Gwendoline Brouillé
Gender: Female
Affiliation: Axis Zeon
Desired Rank: Petty Officer
Age/Date of Birth: 18; January 16th, 0069
Place of Birth: Zum City Side 3
Appearance: Gwendoline is around 5'3" with a small athletic build. She has blue hair which she wears in a trim bob cut. Her brown eyes sparkle with the innocence of youth still.
Personality: Gwendoline possesses a very bubbly and relaxing personality. Usually the first to congratulate someone or give praise to others. Gwen has a rather large mistrust of earthnoids. But even then she doesn't really show much resentment towards them.
Bio:

Gwen’s life has been filled with much tragedy and despair. At the tender age of 10 both of her parent’s were taken away from here. Her father was killed on earth while serving under Garma Zabi somewhere around New Yark. Three months later her mother was taken away by cancer.

When the war came to an end, Gwen was adopted by a crippled soldier and they quickly relocated to Axis. Gwen spent half her life aboard the asteroid base. Her guardian who was little use to everyone aboard Axis died when she was 16 years old. Unsure of what to make of her life, and having a good idea how short and precious a life can be Gwen applied to be a mobile suit pilot.

At first she was turned away by the recruiting officers. But eventually they gave way to her consistent and dedicated applications. Gwen now a mobile suit pilot is eager to help the Axis cause.

Name: Iso Harison
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Lt. or Ltjg.
Age/Date of Birth: 23 / January 03th 0064
Place of Birth: Side 3 - 22 bunch
Appearance: 5'11" shoulder length black hair and blue eyes.

Personality: A man who is fiercely loyal to his friends/squadmates and who is open to new ideas. He’s a generally easy going guy but mess with any of his friends and he’ll make you regret it.

Bio: Until the OYW Iso lead a fairly normal life, he looked up to his older brother and looked after his younger sister. During the course of the war his father signed on as a technician and later his brother was drafted as a MS pilot. His father was killed during Odessa and his brother made it to the Battle of Solomon before being KIA. After the war his Mother, who couldn’t keep living in the same home where she received the news of her husband and firstborn’s death, opted to move the rest of the family to Axis in early 0080 as one of the many refugees who couldn’t stand the Federation’s occupation/puppet government that they fought against. It was a long, 16 month journey that gave Iso time to think about what to do.
Less than a month after the Federation’s attack during Mineva’s coronation in December 0081, and half a year living on Axis, Iso joined the military, much to his mother's chagrin. He was spurred by Haman Karn’s fiery speech that was broadcast, the desire to follow his brother, and to protect what little family he had left from another such attack. That, and the fact that families of the military got slightly preferential treatment aboard the cramped asteroid didn't hurt either.
About 6 years later, his lengthier time of service than most pilots without actual combat experience makes him a better candidate than most for a post aboard an Endra class MS roster. Though his mother still disapproves of his career choice.

Assignment: MS pilot, Endra-class Bindra.


Name: Djorn Nachtjaeger
Gender: Male
Affliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Second Lieutenant
Age/Date of Birth:22/August 28, UC 65
Place of Birth: 7th Bunch, Side 3/Principality of Zeon
Appearance: Djorn has a compact, sturdy build that often makes people underestimate his height and size. Though he looks shorter, he is actually 5’9” tall and weighs in around 185#. His nose is prominent with a definite hook and his ears are a bit too large for his face. His bright blue eyes are intense and piercing and really are windows to his soul, showing his emotions more clearly than his mouth. His hair is dark and shaggy, though he keeps it cut close. His skin is a light tan color.

Personality: Djorn is brash, loud and totally at ease in almost any situation. He has an inherent confidence that is seemingly unshakeable to outside viewers. No matter where he goes, he acts like he belongs there. He is cocky almost to the point of being annoying and he takes very few things seriously. While he doesn’t really have a quiet side, he is always paying more attention to things than he seems and people often underestimate him. He’s also fanatically loyal to the Axis cause. He doesn’t believe that Spacenoids are better than Earthnoids or any spiritual “gravity brings down souls” stuff, he simply believes that the people of Zeon are better than everyone else and that it is their destiny to lead the Earth Sphere.

Bio: Djorn Nachtjaeger was born to a simple, working class family in Side 3. His childhood was nondescript and his life promised to be boring until the rise of the Zabis and their Independence Movement. Though his parents opposed it, being simple folk who simply wanted to ride out the turmoil, Djorn became a fanatical supporter of the Principality of Zeon. Upon the arrival and early successes of the Red Comet, he became an absolute zealot, dreaming of becoming a Mobile Suit Ace, himself.

The infighting and pettiness of the Zabis sickened Djorn, though he barely understood what was happening and when the tide began to shift against Zeon, he lied about his age to join the army and become a pilot. They saw through his ploy, however and he was forced to watch from the sidelines as A Baoa Qu fell.

His parents quietly shifted to a normal life, immigrating to another colony, but Djorn found his way to Axis and dedicated himself to renewing the glory of the Principality of Zeon. He was too young to be a combat pilot, but not too young to train and within a year, he was in the program. Now, he’s eager to see combat and prove the superiority of Axis.

Assignment: MS pilot, Endra-class Bindra.


Name: Lasis Danieg
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Ensign
Age/Date of Birth: 20/ May 7th, UC 0067
Place of Birth: 4th Bunch, Side 3, Principality of Zeon
Appearance: Young, small and of average stature but possing a handsome appearance with light brown hair and medium blue eyes.
Personality: Lasis is at heart a kind soul, but he's also extremely determined to see Zeon return to reclaim its rightful place in the Earth Sphere. Although not old enough to remember the Principality, he has grown up with the stories of Zeon's defeat in the war, and as such he is almost fanatically loyal to Haman Karn's vision of restoring the Zabi family name. However, while he is unusually hesitant to kill, his belief in the restoration of the Zabi name is strong enough that he will kill for that dream. He also has a slight problem with being a bit overzealous. He is a creature of conviction and strong beliefs, and when given a specific task he tends to complete that task - recklessly. Many of his superiors are worried about this reckless behavior, and it remains to be seen whether he'll learn to curb this flaw in his thinking.
Bio: Lasis was born as the son of two prominent figures in Axis politics, his mother and father both being respected Mobile Suit developers within Axis. As such, with the Axis Advance Fleet sent to support the Delaz Fleet's Operation Stardust, there was a call for skilled technicians and personnel to assist in recovery operations, and Lasis felt compelled to volunteer. What he saw in the aftermath of Operation Stardust would forever change him. While he never saw any combat himself, seeing the few survivors, and the valor of their fight he felt compelled to follow their example. And so upon their return, after becoming of age, he enlisted, determined to help the Zabi's restore their rightful place in the Earth Sphere. Although his knowledge of MS serves him well, his abilities as a pilot remains quite unproven. He waits for the day when he can contribute to the cause of the Zabi family and Axis.

Name: Lars Henken
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Ensign
Age/Date of Birth: 21/ January 20th, UC 0066
Place of Birth: Side 3
Appearance: 6', short blonde hair, blue eyes, stocky build

Personality: Quiet and reserved, others may take him as aloof and uncaring. Harbours a strong resentment towards the Federation. Serving Mineva Lao Zabi has been a lifelong goal.

Bio: Born before the establishment of the Principality, Lars' parents became fanatically loyal to the Zabi family when they took power in 0069. After his father was killed in the fall of A Baoa Qu, his mother fled to the Axis asteroid with other refugees fearing Federation reprisals. Pushed toward the military from a young age, Lars still was only average in his final qualification for Axis' rearmament. his resentment towards the Federation was both planted and nurtured by his mother, who blamed them wholly for her husbands death. His mother died when he was eighteen, twisted and bent with hatred. Rather than learning any lessons for his mother early death, he took on her vengeance as his own, just as she had hoped.

Assignment: mechanic, Endra-class Bindra.


Name: Shellia Northran(again kudos to Wonton bob for the Art)
Gender: F
Affiliation: Axis
Desired Rank: Chief Petty Officer
Age/Date of Birth: 4/21/0070 18
Place of Birth: Axis
Appearance:

Somewhat short and thin with smooth medium length light green hair kept swept back and brown eyes

Personality:

bubbly and occasionally airheaded but Confident in her own (fairly substantial) abilities

Bio:

Born and Raised in Axis she was the daughter of two engineers. She and her parents never cared much for politics even after the remnants of Zeon took her home as their own though for their own sake they were smart enough not to show it.

Thanks to the continuous coaching of her parents she began to show an extreme affinity for machines which matured as she did. She eventually couldn't escape notice of the powers that be and was conscripted as a mechanic.

While she loves working on machines of any kind she hates the idea that they are used to kill people; devoutly believing, much like her parents, the machines should only improve peoples lives. Her age, lack of experience, and a few airheaded moments are the only things keeping her from a spot as head mechanic.

Assignment: helmsman, Endra-class Bindra.


[ 1 / 2 ]

Name:
Raquel I. Reyes

Gender:
Female

Affiliation:
Axis Zeon

Desired Rank:
Whatever rank a lead helmsman is given

Age/Date of Birth:
49/ UC 0038

Place of Birth:
Side 3

Appearance:
Thick in appearance and feel, the entirety of Raquel's jet black with random strands of grey hair is kept in a small beehive with small spiral curls close to her ears while allowing her to still wear a normal suit helmet. Her thin eyebrows, which ar composed of long strands of hair that is greying more visibly than the hair on her head, are almost flat and suddenly curve upwards at both ends in checkmarks. Her vivacious round eyes are a very deep brown with short eyelashes. Standing at around five feet and three inches or so in height, Raquel's almost flawless white teeth are rather large, especially the incisors. Round faced with low, crescent cheekbones along with elongating crows feet at the outer edges of her eyes and a small blunt nose that broadens below the bridge, ending with slightly wide nostrils. Raquel's body possesses noticeable curves, with her bottom, hips and thighs fuller than her upper body and thus giving her smaller shoulders and waist in appearance. Healthy and somewhat athletic in spite of her age, her coffee colored body is a bit solid and toned, especially in her lightly muscled legs and forearms.

Personality:
A self-proclaimed "career alcholic," but even without a bit of drink in her Raquel is often conversationally talkative though sometimes not always on topic and even when you're not in the mood for talking or are the quiet type--which just encourages her. Yet rudeness (e.g. calling her nosy or telling hert to shut it) can quiet her briefly. Though a Zeonic One Year War veteran who fled to Axis almost immediately following the war's end, Raquel is not in this for such things as revenge or re-establishing the Zabi regine as opposed to wanting to make the future safe for her grandchildren and likely other spacenoids in the process while knowing full well what she has gotten herself into. As such, that and her age has given her some resignation in neither fretting over the future or what ill comes her way while her life as a soldier and suvivor of the OYW helped her attempt to maintain a resolute calm and determination under pressure.

Bio:
Having never set foot on Earth and the moon while being amongst the earliest humans born and living their entire life in space, tt was the philosophies and politics of Zeon Zum Deikun that she still feels best explains what she thought and felt and still does. By the time Side 3 became an independent nation in UC 0058, she and her then boyfriend decided not only to wed but enlist in the cluster's defense force after their honeymoon.

Throughout the next twenty years the two served Zeon's space fleet, often aboard different ships, while trying to raise a family and all the while bracing themselves and preparing their children for the eventual fallout that would come due to the Earth Federation's and Zeon's arm race. Serving aboard two different Chivvay class cruisers, both sunk before war's end, Raquel's only real under-fire combat experience was during the one week battle at war's opening and the final battle at A Baoa Qu while between that time she was serving close to Side 3 to defend against whatever Earth Federation raids and probe attempts were made.

Almost immediately after the war, losing her oldest child, a daughter, on Earth and her husband at A Baoa Qu with Side 3 becoming a puppet government and all liklihood of spacenoid independence in the Earthsphere crushed, Raquel, along with other like minded Zeon veterans, fled with her family to Axis in hopes of a better future away from Earth and any possible retaliation for the One Year War

[ 2 / 2 ]

Name:
Priscila "Pris" Singh

Gender:
Female

Affiliation:
Axis Zeon

Desired Rank:
Lieutenant or Lieutenant Junior Grade.

Age/Date of Birth:
34/ UC 0053

Place of Birth:
Side 6

Appearance:
A trim rectangular-ish frame of a bright honey-brown skintone with a somewhat triangle/diamond shaped face with golden-brown eyes kept in an almost consistent half-lidded gaze under large, manlike bushy and uneven eyebrows. Soft hands and slender fingers and flat faced along with a mostly flat body though more solid than skinny-thin in appearance save for a bit of a paunch. And much like the short legs of Pris's barely over five foot height is her also short, orange-peel coloured hair, kept in an eton crop close to her scalp.

Personality:
Finally managing to overcome her shame, depression and self-loathing after her divorce and inabililty to adjust to civilian life, Pris has accepted the fact she enjoys fighting and even feels at most alive when facing harm or death after having given in to the excitement and camaraderie of battle in and of itself rather than fighting for a cause or survival. Accepting violence, Pris tends to find herself feeling wholly out of place when among noncombatants and safety, often finding ways to counterbalance these surroundings by being competitive or annoying, picking quarrels, starting fights and speeding to name a few methods.

Bio:
Though born in Side 6, Pris's infatuation for Side 3 that led to her eventual relocation there began at the age of five, influenced by and swept up in her parent's enthusiasm over Side 3's declared independence, colonial self-rule and the romanticism of newtypes and humanity fleeing gravity that culminated in the family's emigration to Side 3. By UC 0073, fueled by college course studies in Earthside post-colonial studies, a recent marriage to a soldier in Zeon's homeguard and the arms race between the Earth Federation and Zeon, Priscila intended to enlist in the Side's military but was delayed until UC 0077 by the birth of her daughter and by then signed on to become one of the nation's latest mobile suit pilots. Throughout much of the war Pris, in a way, served as a rear line soldier far from most of the combat throughout the year; first stationed close to the vicinity of Side 3 itself and then temporarily stationed at Solomon mere months before the Federation's massive counterattack dealt her any real combat experience followed by the battle at A Baou Qu a post battle skirmishes even after a ceasefire was called.

Once the peace accord was signed, Pris quickly found herself at odds with civilian life on Side 3 having found it and much of its people, including her own parents and husband, contemptable at how quickly their opinions changed. Herself having seen first hand the force and sheer number of bodies the EF was willing to put forth in order to crush, what she believed, any attempt at spacenoid self-sovereignity and how willing her own countrymen were to allow it now set her on edge for months. Moody, disruptive and paranoid, the maritial conflict that arose because of the wars end and establishment of what she saw to be a puppet government and wanting to move her family Axis led to fallout and eventual divorce in her marriage with the final blow being her husband obtaining custody over their daughter.

Depressed and alone on Axis, over time Pris first found solace in conflict. Speeding, breaking traffic laws, pummeling would be theives and muggers, taking part in bar brawls and riots in those early days at Axis when there was not enough to go around for everyone and living a normal life like anyone else was almost too calm, too secure, too predictable for her liking. And during this she found herself gravitating towards often like minded war veterans, finding them to be the only worthy company and the sort of people who could understand her and what she was going through. Amidst their camarderie, whether they wanted another chance at the Earth Federation or the resurrection of the Zabi Duchy or otherwise, Priscila rejoined the military in order to be among them and to fight.

Location: The Exploding Radish
Name: Nikolai Lvovitch Tuzenbach
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Axis Zeon
Desired Rank: Ensign
Age/Date of Birth: 19/January 3rd, UC 0069
Place of Birth: Side 3

Appearance: 5'8" with a lean build and a very pale complexion. He has hazel eyes and light brown hair that is very close to blond. He likes to grow his hair thick, but not long.

Personality: A product of his upbringing on Side 3 during the reign of the Principality of Zeon and the Axis fanatics, Nikolai is very loyal to the Axis' cause. However he isn't a blind fanatic and rather enjoys living. He is more likely to approach a situation with a rational idea and strategy rather then dive in feet first. Easy to get along with and does his best to avoid personal problems with other pilots.

Bio: Born as the Principality took power of Side 3, Nikolai would be indoctrinated in the ideals of the Zabi regime. Ten years later the One Year War would begin on his birthday as Zeon attacked the Sides still loyal to the Federation. He was ecstatic at the time, that his date of birth would be linked with the beginning of the Principality's War of Independence against the Earth Federation. However as the war dragged on and living conditions degraded among the civilian population of Side 3 many began to see that the way would be un-winable. As A Baoa Qu fell Nikolai's father pulled whatever strings a low ranking politician could and was able to get his family on the ships headed for Axis.

The first years on Axis would be tough for Nikolai and his family. Education continued, but under a more military regiment. They were told daily that they would be the ones to reclaim Side 3 from the collaborators and then continue the war for Spacenoid Independence. Before he knew it he was being trained how to pilot Mobile Suits and when he turned 18 was placed into the regular military. Soon the sun would grow larger as Axis moved closer to the earth and he would help retake his birth place from the puppet government.

NEW ARRIVALS

Luke Burke {1} [NPC]
Age: 20
Rank: Lieutenant Junior Grade
MS: MSA-099 Rick Dias
A young spacenoid from Side 1’s 16th Bunch “OK City”, Burke left his home and a potential career in engineering to join the AEUG. As a teen he was the head of the local Junior Mobile Suit club, and is still a whiz when it comes to the mecha domain.

Dr. Ashley Proud {1} [Attomoku]
Age: 32
Profession: fleet psychologist
Recently she was asked to do a psychological survey of the AEUG and to try and keep the non-militant military from coming apart at the seams by a concerned AEUG backer who was an old friend of the family. She feels that she somewhat owes this man who as been like an uncle to her and reluctantly accepted.

Karl Keaton [lans*]
Age: 31
Rank: Lieutenant Commander
Ship: Salamis Kai-class Cruiser Balrampur
After years of service with the EFSF, he moved to Luna in 0086 and shortly thereafter defected to the AEUG because of the Titans harsh treatment of spacenoids.

Assignment: post-arc replacement


Name: Jackson “JP” Hepburn {}
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Titans
Desired Rank: Lieutenant J.G.
Age/Date of Birth: 15 May 0063 (24)
Place of Birth: Southeastern Ohio, Earth Federation
Appearance: Think Michael Cudlitz as Bull Randleman in Band of Brothers.

Personality: More or less a former rough and tumble HS Linebacker with a good amount of Officer Academy and Battlefield smarts. One to always have a cigar in his mouth regardless of the availability of a lighter, he's sarcastic and somewhat touchy with his suit when it's around green horn mechanics. He isn't above schooling them either with a good old 5 finger 'salute.'

History: Born to a suburban family in southern Ohio, Jack had a normal childhood for the most part. Pushed by his parents to go into sports, he took pride in his accomplishments. In fact, it also caught the eyes of the recruiters for the EFAF, who in the stretch for new pilots and mechanics, came to him with the prospect of a full ride scholarship from the military if he joined the war effort. Discussing it with his parents, they agreed, his grandfather and great grandfather having both served in the USAF prior to its absorption into the EFAF. So the young Jack Hepburn joined the ranks of the EFAF as a mechanics apprentice at age 16; proof that the Federation was in dire straits that summer.

He graduated EFAF training in late August in time for the Project V buildup. Scouted for his experience with avionics training, rookie status, and his athletic background, he seemed a logical recruit for continued training in space borne MS support when the war eventually moved to space. Once more he was shipped into training, and by the time he was assigned to a Vinson Plan Salamis, the war was in its last month. He never saw combat first hand, mostly serving inside a tin can.

When the war ended, he found that he actually liked the life of an airman and solider. He decided to not apply to a civilian university, and rather looked into Federal Officers Training School. At age 17 he was still too young to be accepted, so as an ultimatum to his desire to enter the academy, he was granted a slot as long as he signed on an extra year as an enlisted soldier. With almost 2 years of service under his belt at 18, he was a tough and rugged officer candidate; often sporting a cigar and rugged facade that was few and far between the baby faced officer cadets. By the time he graduated in 0083, he was on his way to a commission as an Ensign and pilot aboard a Sally Kai. But, in its stead the Delaz fleet came knocking with their colony drop on the Midwest. Only by dumb luck did his home and family survive. By the graces given to him by this second chance, he looked to his experiences as a young kid recruited for the war effort, and moved forward into the Titans with a steeled backbone.

From the Delaz War until the AEUG conflict of ’86-87 he served the Titans as a rough and tumble pilot that could more than hold his own in a dogfight. Assigned early in the AEUG conflict to the Latium and Taskforce Juliet, he served as a Hizack pilot for a good long while as a support flight lead pilot before most of the flight crew and the ship itself were lost at Zedan.

Assignment: post-arc replacement


Name: Parks Applegate
Gender: M
Affiliation: Titans
Desired Rank: Lt. JG
Age/Date of Birth: 22 03/06/0065
Place of Birth: Arco, Idaho
Appearance:

5'7" Thin with long light blond hair and light blue eyes (what most would call a "pretty boy")

Personality:

Coming from a wealthy family and possessing some degree of skill he bears sense of entitlement. A braggart, he is quick to blame his failings on others (lack of effort on their part or intentional sabotage) In addition he's quite the flirt and sees "bagging space chicks" as a sport. He often brags about his "catches" to other pilots no matter how short lived they may be.

Bio:

Born to a family that had a lucrative business mining Gems he had a privileged youth. Even when the One Year War broke out he managed to live well thanks to his parents money and influence. Operation Stardust however was not so kind to him as his mother who was away on a business trip was killed when the colony fell. This event made him and his father stanch supporters of the Titans and eventually lead Parks to join Titans.

He bares a rather plain service record, not doing particularly well or particularly poorly. He has served loyally not ever questioning the Titans methods. His entire Taskforce was wiped out at the disastrous Gate of Zedan operation and his own machine was trashed. He survived via luck -though he'd tell any who'd listen that it was shear skill- and was assigned to Taskforce echo.

Other:

in his old squad Parks received the nickname "PB". He was told it meant "Peanut Butter" for his 'smoothness' with women and MS combat but in reality it meant "Pretty Boy" in a rather derisive way. It is unknown whether any records of this nickname survived.

Name: Allister Grant
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Titans
Desired Rank: Lieutenant J.G.
Age/Date of Birth: 44/ U.C. 0043
Place of Birth: Maui
Appearance: 6'2'' 202 lbs. Black hair mostly gray with brown eyes. Muscular build due to years of weight training.

Personality: Often described as a "gentle giant" by those who knew him recently. He seems to have settled in his ways in his later years. Suffered a loss of faith in humanity during the OYW but retains a firm belief in governmental institutions. Sees the AEUG as a tyrannical group bringing nothing but chaos to the world.

History:
U.C. 0060: Being very proficient with his fists, Allister dropped out of high school to pursue a career in amateur boxing also married his girlfriend when he found little success in the sport. Ranked 22-7-0 by age 17.

U.C. 0086: Around this time his marriage was dissolving to the point where his wife and daughter moved back with her parents in Australia. They divorced a month later and after a failed career as a professional boxer and with nothing promising on the horizon he volunteered into the Federation military service.

U.C. 0079: Stationed at Jaburo for most of the war, Allister was assigned to a new naval pacific fleet and shipped out to the Asian theater of operations. During Operation Tycoon Allister witnessed horrors as an infantryman which would change his attitude toward humanity. Being part of a Federation amphibious force Allister's battalion stormed a city-port as part of a 3rd wave relief force only to find most of the survivors of the 1st and 2nd wave to have been tortured and executed overnight by Zeon forces now regrouping in the jungle. Finding the wounded and dead to have been booby-trapped, strict orders were given to ignore the cries of help during their push through the city. Sometimes it was more humane to put them out of their misery, he would repeat to himself when he or others in his unit would come upon a severly wounded friendly and finish them off with a bullet.

U.C. 0081: With no living family or relatives Allister decided to re-enlist, this time in the mobile suit branch of the military, since he became fascinated by the GM ever since seeing one in battle. During Operation Star Dust he had become adept at piloting a mobile suit and had no desire to re-enter combat status. Instead he took an assignment as a mobile suit instructor on a Hawaiian EFF base where he taught basic armor movement and tactical warfare. Allister sat out on the combat and took no part in the Delaz conflict.

U.C. 0087: Due to mounting losses he was offered a position with the Titans. Allister saw it as a chance for higher pay and it also was a step up in his military career. He wasn't looking forward to the fighting but someone has to keep these rebels in check.

Assignment: post-arc replacement


Name: Jon Moffatt
Gender: Male
Affiliation: Titans
Desired Rank: Ensign
Age/Date of Birth: 22 March 27th
Place of Birth:Canada
Appearance: Jon is a lanky build standing Six feet and three inches tall. He has blue eyes and medium length shaggy dirty blonde hair. He keeps a neat and finely trimmed beard, and has a rather pronounced nose.
Personality: Jon is a rather friendly person. Tends to take on a leader role and has a good sense of humour. Has a bizare habit of openly insulting people then laughing about it to ease of tension. Actually he's a pretty big jerk, don't trust that laugh...or that angelic smile.
Bio: Actually a fresher Titan. Jon was transferred out of the Foxtrot unit that was routinely patrolling the Franceska area.

Jon had always wanted to be a member of the military. He didn't try to hard in any school so it was a surprise to see that he somehow made into the military and even more of a shocker to see that he was invited to join the Titans.
