Character Description

Mister Burton, as he likes to be called, is a tall, stately man who always appears well-dressed and ready to get down to brass tacks. Or osmium tacks. Or tungsten tacks. Or any tacks, really– the man visibly oozes a firm and steady desire to work. His facial features are at once both angular and forgiving, high cheekbones and thin lips which rarely turn upwards to a smile. His blue eyes are frequently narrowed in concentration, though at times his focus widens them to a look nearing that of surprise. He keeps his straight black hair cropped short and typically restrained within a beret, scarf, or headwrap.

History and Relationship Notes

Daziel had a praised, yet short-lived career in the Star Army of Yamatai during the second war with the NMX. He served as an officer in the Planetary Legion during the Battle of Yamatai and was awarded with a Red Tessen for bravery. His natural leadership skills payed him well in the private sector, and he made his way to the head of a small division of engineers in the bowels of Dawn Station. After one of his charges caused a monumental power loss in one of the residential districts of the corporate station, Daziel was forced to take responsibility. Conveniently enough, he was almost immediately transferred to a post as supervisor of the Ake Terraforming Project.

Skill Areas

  • Communications: Fluent in Trade, Yamatai-go, Abwherischen
  • Leadership: Burton is both an experienced officer and corporate executive.
  • Mechanical: While he hasn't the knack for design, Daziel's natural leadership skills and working engineering knowledge give him the 'umph' to get just about any project put together.
  • Entertainment: Daziel is a three-times winner of the bi-annual “Dawn Station Crooner Competition”. Now ain't that a kick in the head?
  • Fighting: Burton worked as a sapper for the Planetary Legion during the war. So, basically he's really great at fighting.
  • Knowledge: Daziel seems to have an oddly machine-like memory for technical specifications, and an uncanny ability to provide publicly available information off the top of his head.
  • Vehicles: Daziel is a semi-capable pilot of small freighters, shuttles, and recreational aircraft.
