Build and Skin Colour: August has the normal 'out of boot camp' build to him, broad shoulders ample muscle tone and a slender arm and leg feature. It complements his light tanned skin.
Facial Features and Eye Colour: He has a strong facial structure with him and a clean shaven face, no scars on unsightly marks as well. His eye color looks to be a dark green sense, but not exactly considered hazel.
Hair Colour and Style: August's hair color is close to a light brown with a bit of dark brown strands in it, it's has the style of a cropped top, with very small bangs hanging in front of the forehead.
Distinguishing Features: There is really nothing to distinguish August from the crowd, he looks to be a simple man, trying to make his way in the world.
Personality: August has a very 'recruit' outlook on his new found role in the Nepleslian military effort. A little too eager to get into trouble and responsibilities, but a very ambitious young man. He is quite the socialite, but not to the point of a ladies man, rather of a good friend, somebody you can really trust. August even has a rebellious side to him. The most dominant trait of his personality would have to be his Indomitable Will (Morale) and calmness, even in the most hopeless of situations he does not intent on giving up without a fight. On another note, he does have a bit of a problem with discipline, he is willing to bend under it, but it takes a bit more effort to make him crack under it.
Likes: August loves to make conversation with just about anyone, and the challenge of anything new as long as it is interesting in his eyes. He also enjoys the violin, cooking and fine smokeables. Anything beyond that, he enjoys life with all it's problems and joys intact. Dislikes: He doesn't like the idea of somebody being secret or un-trusting, nor the idea of being stuck in one place for long. Goals: August has very simple goals, he wants to prove himself of worth at his job and the chance to advance in rank, possible to a sergeant.
August doesn't consider his past any interest, a normal guy, a normal life.
He was born on Nepleslia, in the muck and shadows of the various factories and industries that towered before his home. He was always the runt of anything he did as a child, whether it be simple games or just the average day chores he took up. August never really had a family, but he did have two little sisters, which he loved dearly. His mom and dad were always away or drunk.. or worse, they never came back for a period of time (It's a wonder if August even wanted them to come back). In his teenage years, he was never doing anything fun or special because he was taking care of his sisters. It wasn't much of a living, but he did it with a smile on his face.
He grew up and made life it's best until he came to the age of applying for the Military, he had nothing left, his sisters had vanished and his parents could have cared less, the thought of leaving and joining the military crossed his mind several times. He did so, but before he did so, August learned the art of the violin while he was beginning to see the sorrow of his life, with everything gone, what else could he do? He picked it up from one of his neighbors, some nights you could hear the man playing his tunes through the shade of his window. August started to get acquainted with the man, learning the violin as he went along, the man, or Borus Chesknolivch now, was somewhat of a becoming a father figure to August. Life seemed to be getting better, but.. the man died soon afterwords of a massive stroke, he picked up the violin and continued to play it, even if he didn't know the notes, he'd play it, is it so wrong to carry on the memory of someone you loved? Afterwords, he signed up and became a grunt in the Marine Corps. As for his nickname, he earned it in many live fire situations, staying calm and collective really payed off in those times, “Frosty” was an ample title for that. Fresh out of basic training, he is ready to live his life.
August is faimiliar with radio operation; receiving and sending basic transmissions through headsets and ground vehicles. Although he has trouble figuring out (He is certainly able to use them) the more complex communication systems, such as Ships, Power Armor and Shuttles. Other than that, he is fluent in Nepleslian and capable of writing reports, filling out forms and issuing orders in a combat situation, that includes the rudimentary forms as well.
He is also in fit condition for most situations requiring physique, rather than brains. Hand-to-hand techniques he has a grasp on, but is never the best at those situations, more angled tword disabling the enemy. August excels in weaponry of any type(He prefers ballistics though), but can be a little timid about using the more advanced systems. Power Armor… he won't touch it unless ordered to.
Along with his harsh childhood and his basic training skills in survival, he is quite handy in cooking, building a shelter and overall surviving in harsh terrains of almost any kind.
August understands the chain of command and tactical orders enough to use them and follow them effectively. He also realizes the importance of a squad in a fire fight. He can point out the commanding officers and such and recognize basic ambush points, except tactical maps help that more so than his perception.
Again, he is proficient in all Domestic affairs and chores (Cooking, cleaning, laundry, ect.), it may be a bit girly in his opinion, but he does it if need be.
August prefers the violin in his pursuit of the arts, in his attempt to quite his surroundings, he practices on his violin and sometimes plays for those whom wish to hear his art. Maybe not the best, but certainly getting there at a steady pace.
August has a natural reaction to try and lead. Although he may not make the right decision, he is quick to act if the squad is on the edges. Sometimes he has a tendency to try and take control of a squad before everything breaks apart, perhaps a bad feeling kicks in and he feels it is right to try and take command? His style or attempted style is to have the squad trust you more than listen to your orders because you're higher up the payment chain.
