Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Kind and gentlemanly on a regular basis, however if his ire is kindled then he becomes a rampaging torrent of destructive rage. Has a thing about not harming females unless they attempt to harm him first regardless of species. He is what is known as a “clever” alien so he is not nearly as obsessive as other aliens are but he has his own hobby of making improvised explosive weapons to use in combat. Tends to build small explosive charges into the frame of his armor so that when things attempt to grab onto him he can detonate it and flay them with tungsten carbide ball bearings.

  • Likes: Weapons, explosives, females of any species (he's not very picky), computers, hacking, anything he can use to inflict more havoc on his enemies, being a protector.
  • Dislikes: Annoying people, the NMX, arrogant officials, those who would harm females near him, overly restrictive rules of engagement that require him to be fired upon first before engaging, those who would harm that which he is charged with protecting.
  • Goals: To become wealthy and well known for his work with the Black vipers.
  • Psychological quirks: Dislikes most medical professionals until they prove themselves due to experiences with drug injection happy medics.


Family (or Creators)

Does not know of them for he joined the military at a surprisingly young age and was adopted by clan Bithut for showing an extremely high level of competence.


Tam after being abandoned on the streets of a major city fell in with the wrong group for a time and was inducted into the banned Art of Murder and used as a contract assassin until he was 16 upon his birthday he decided that it was wrong for him to be doing such a thing and in a fit of rage annihilated the group that had been training and employing him after taking what he could and promptly joined the military he survived his basic training without anyone realizing what he'd done and upon proving himself beyond reproach was inducted for Rapid Reaction Force sniper and engineering training shortly after graduation he was adopted by clan bithut for showing an extremely high level of competence in all of his fighting skills and proving himself to be an exceptional warrior.

Disciplinary issues (as stated by the core)

“STB Tam is a well trained professional murderer, who was inducted into the army to escape criminal charges and persecution on account of his youth at the time of the crimes. He has shown much skill and earned several awards in training, especially in the area of hand to hand combat. He also shows much promise as a sniper and a low level military engineer. He has been noted to have a slight obsession with pyrotechnics, and has been disciplined 5 times so far this week for attempting to flirt with CORE units. He has also been disciplined for attempting to hack the CORE 3 times prior to being briefed on the nature of the CORE system. Lastly he was also is a suspect in the death of a drill instructor, but the allegations were never proven. It had been reported that he had repeatedly threatened the life of the instructor due to his annoying nature, however it is currently believed that the actual murderer was one of the drill instructor's acquaintances.”

“Yes. You have been asigned to clean all of the toilets in sector 12 with your tongue. Fortunately for you, there is only one toilet in sector 12, and it has just been cleaned. Further you were asigned to march to hell and back several times, however I cannot find the location hell on the internal maps. Lastly you were assigned to teach children in the creche how to perform macrame. These are simply the most recent. I can forward a complete list to your chamber.”

“Cleaning all toilets in sector 12 was assigned to you by an officer who you offered to show your amazing oral skills to. March to hell and back is a very common asignment given to you, frequently as part of inspirational speeches, and whenever you have greatly annoyed superior officers. Teaching the children in the creche how to perform macrame was requested of you by the young Ketla Kans, and you agreed to perform the task because she had, and I quote, 'such supple, strong hands' while she was giving you a massage in the rec room.”

Skill Areas

Fighting and Physical, Fighting (Marksmanship)

Tam has trained and studied the art of fighting. He is proficient in the use of small arms, bladed weapons, and unarmed combat. He is in excellent physical shape, and is able to endure the stresses of combat in space or on the ground. Due to his special sniper training: Military sniper training aims to teach a high degree of proficiency in camouflage and concealment, stalking, observation and map reading as well as precision marksmanship under various operational conditions. Due to this he is highly skilled at taking even difficult shots and making them hit at a very high percentage of shots fired. He is also highly skilled at the military CQC training for close combat. Standard Military CQC training emphasizes speed and power, simplicity, and the usage of claws. It borrows heavily from the art of destruction, with additional zero-G training for use during boarding actions. It also borrows heavily from the art of the cutting wind, for any situation in which the hand to hand fighting is occurring in the open. There's a touch of the Art of the flow as well, but nowhere near as much. There's also a special training section where soldiers learn how to use their hand-to-hand opponent as a shield against ranged attacks, and how to cause multiple opponents to stumble and trip each other. There's also training in close range gun techniques, and using your opponent as a gun rest to mow down his allies as his body protects you from return fire. He is also well versed in the art of the blade and while it is banned he is a low rank master of the art of murder for making sure that he is prepared for every eventuality. Over time, Tam has also worked to become a mid grade master of the art of the gun, showing that he can fight with a pistol in one or both hands or a pistol in one hand and the sword with the other while making use of his enhanced capabilities to move around the enemy while landing precisely aimed shots at vulnerable areas.

Military (Stealth/Camouflage)

Tam can effectively disguise himself, and is trained in stealth techniques. He can move slowly with very little noise, and understands how to make himself inconspicuous when he doesn't wish to be found. He can cover his own tracks. He can also rapidly dig himself into a hide to be almost entirely invisible so that he can snipe enemies from a perfectly concealed area.

Technology Operation

Tam is extremely proficient in the use of alien computers, and other pieces of technology. He has taken both basic and advanced classes to get an understanding of modern computer operations, as well as how to interact with alien neuro-computer systems on a more advanced level than is the norm.


Tam has been trained to be capable of operating all alien communications technologies. He can speak in low level code talk with ease, and can concentrate on speaking when under-fire or in a combat situation. He is also able to communicate via hand signals as well as leaving subtle markers for comrades so as not to give his position away to the enemy.

Maintenance and Repair

Tam is well educated in alien technology. He can tell what is wrong with a piece of equipment and do his best to repair the problem. He can also find weaknesses in enemy equipment, and structures, giving him an additional capacity for executing precise one shot one kill actions. He also uses his knowledge of how to repair items to determine the best locations on his armor to place small explosive traps in order to minimize damage to his suit but maximize damage done to enemies that attempt to grab him in hand to hand. Tam is also a skilled technician when it comes to designing new things and is an enthusiast for creating upgrades to the standard armor and is a relatively skilled tailor. He can create clothing/armor for people from looking at them to judge relative measurements but normally requires them to come to see him for more precise fitting. He is quite adept at improvising repairs to weapons and armor if he were to be rated in proficiency of armorsmith or weaponsmithing he'd be a high level journeyman low level expert in the field because of his worksmanship and dedication to getting the job done correctly no matter the expense or time used.

Engineering (Problem Solving)

Tam has studied machine operations to the science. He can design small machines and buildings, or implement old technologies in new ways. He can also analyze and figure out enemy technology if given proper time. He is also skilled at figuring out the local terrain, and is able to construct makeshift buildings and fortifications.

Demolitions (Explosives)

Tam commonly rigs up explosives devices, such as mines, and bombs in order to destroy buildings, or vast tracts of land. He is extremely good at his job and is very enthusiastic at causing destruction on a large as well as a precise scale. He has also personally modified his standard armor to have multiple small directional mines planted into strategic locations so that if an enemy manages to pin him he can trigger them and detonate them so that he can scramble free and if not kill the opponent then at least knock them off their feet.


Tam has been trained extensively in ground and invasion tactics. He is capable of sticking to and understanding tactics in play, as well as how to react to sudden changes in the tactical situation At all times he is responsible for the well being and performance of his subordinates, and are to maintain the chain of command. This is relatively recent for Tam, having been brevet promoted to Sub Commander first class in the aftermath of the battle for the capital city.
