Physical Characteristics

  • Height: 6'4”
  • Weight: 235 lbs

Build and Skin Color: When Cable walks into a room, people take notice. He isn't the largest, strongest, or fastest of men, but carries a healthy dose of all these traits. Stout chest and shoulders, smoothly solid arms, and toned, long legs that carry him with an easy, if decieving, grace. Though he is fair skinned and turns pink quickly in open sunlight…though rarely burns…he doesn't have freckles that one might usually expect.

Eyes and Facial Features: Cool blue eyes peer out from beneath dark eyebrows, past a smooth, slim nose. An easy, almost constant one-sided grin creates a small dimple on his left cheek…this can quickly disappear when in deep thought or stressful situations to be replaced with either pursed lips and furrowed brow, or tight lips and clentched jaw. His jaw and chin have the classic “chiseled” look, though his cheeks bear deep and distinguished “laugh lines”; at his youthful age…quite often this has led others to believe he is older than he actually is…which comes in handy at times.

Ears: His ears are niether large nor small, flat against his head nor outstretched like wings…they are terribly unremarkable.🙂

Hair Color and Style: Cable has dark brown (almost black) hair, kept well groomed and short in the military fashion.

Distinguishing Features: Other than a “spider-web” shaped scar above his left eyebrow, the only other thing that stands out about Cable is his expressions. He has a very readable face. If he is angry…you will know. If he is happy…you will know. If he doesn't like someone or thing…you will know. Though he can hide it well as long as he isn't suprised or startled. Overall he is a good looking guy, but not one that can bowl the ladies over with a smile and wink. 🙂

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Outwardly, to those that haven't been around Cable long, he comes across self-confident, thorough, and quietly watchful. Once you get to know him he has an easy-going nature, an under estimated intelligence, and a strong sense of “right and wrong”, which occassionaly gets him into trouble…
He knows when to loosen up and relax just as he knows when to be “all business”. This can, and has, startled people that don't know him…he can switch “on” and “off” very quickly. On the down side…He can be acidicly “short” or terse with others if interrupted while working, reading, or anything else for that matter. Though, fairly quickly. He also harbors anger and distrust for most corporate types (like those he blames for his fathers death/disappearance). He forgives openly, but never forgets.

  • Likes: Strategy games (Chess, etc.), Poker…but doesn't gamble much, Cable also loves to read and learn about nearly anything he can find…if time permits. He enjoys “hanging with the guys” and working out.
  • Dislikes: Tying in with his sense of “right and wrong”, he hates slavery and those that have anything to do with it. He is also very quick to defend others, whether he knows them or not, because he really hates bullies.
  • Goals: Cable is still young and really doesn't have any concrete goals in mind. That being said, he can see himself rising through the ranks and even making a career of the Marines, but can equally see himself exploring the galaxy with his own ship and crew as an independant. This indecisiveness is quite out of character for him…the cause probably lies in the desire to be a part of something larger than himself and his life; and his want/need to explore the galaxay at will…much like his father and the histories he knows so well.

History

Family (or Creators)

Michael Davidson (Father-Deceased/Missing) Sasha Davidson (Mother) Brenna Davidson (Sister-2 yrs younger) Delaney Davidson (Sister-5 yrs younger)

Social Status

Independant

Pre-RP

Cables father, Michael, worked for a (?)resource exploration company as a mining engineer. He travelled across the stars to various planets, moons, and asteroid fields building test mines and facilities. His expertise lie mainly with his knowledge of chemistry and explosives.

Sasha, his mother, worked as a researcher for various professors at the (?)University. She always had the children with her so did most of her work from a data interface terminal at home. Once the children grew older, out of toddler stage, she would take them to the libraries and datastores while she worked. This had a profound effect on Cable. He learned to love reading and probably read more books in one year than most people ever did in their lives. His mother used to call him her “Little Encyclopedia” because he could remember nearly everything he read and helped her gather much of her research.

When he turne 14, he went with his father on several short term expeditions. This is where he began learning his fathers trade and love of travelling. He discovered several passions they shared: Travelling the space lanes and the fine art of controlled violence (explosives). After 3 years of this, Cable couldn't imagine doing anything else, he was completely happy. He and his father had never before been as close because of Michaels long periods of absence, but now they were inseparable.

Soon after returning from their latest trip, Cables father recieved orders for a deep run that was classified. Cable was told he couldn't go because of the threat level the company issued and Cables lack of security clearance. He vividly remembers his father being very quiet and withdrawn the few days before he left…he knew something wasn't “right”, but could not extract an explanation from his father no matter how hard he tried. Some of the last words he heard from his father were spoken with a storm in his blue eyes and a controlled growl in his voice,“If you never learned anything from me, then damn-well learn and NEVER forget this…money changes EVERYTHING! EVERYONE! NEVER believe otherwise or you will be a fool…or worse.”

Michael never returned. The Company never released the details on what happened or where. They wouldn't even clarify whether he was missing or dead, but his mother recieved a sizable sum of money and a death certificate in absentia, for Michael…and hasn't spoke of it since.

(Will finish another day)😎

Skill Areas

Communications

Learned in his Marine training, he has become quite efficient at using most com equipment.

Fighting

Learned in his Marine training, Cable excelled as a recruit with the power armor and hand-to-hand training. This led to him being selected for advanced power armor training and a personal drive to master “Judo” an ancient martial arts form he had read about. In the other areas of this training he scored well above average with all weapons and tactics.

Close Combat-Power Armor

Chosen by his instructors in Basic for his exceptional grace with his power armor, Cable learned close quarters combat tactics and strategies and became proficient enough to start designing his own specialized tactics and maneuvers with his Power Armor. One instructor even called him a “Prodigy” after Graduation.

Survival

Though he didn't top the class in Basic…he is still quite proficient with all areas of survival.

Knowledge (Histories-current events and ancient legends)

Even as a child, Cable always had his nose buried in an old book or researching strange stories his father told him, while his mother worked. As a perk, he knows a great deal about a great many things, but he tries to keep what he know to himself…for several reasons: 1. Many of his marine compatriots find the subjects boring. 2. He wants to fit in with the “guys” and not appear “Nerdy” 3. Let people tend to underestimate his intelligence…which works in his favor more often than not.

Demolitions/Sapper

Cable learned the ropes with his father as a young man…then in Basic was slected to take the Sapper training to enhance his value as a Marine Asset. Unkown to his trainers, he already knew most of what they taught, and even knew a few things they didn't…thanks to good ol' Dad. He learned early that the men and women his father worked with loved to practical joke each other. Always trying to “one-up” each other, his father icluded, Cable witnessed some very creative uses for explosives: ~explosive latrines ~File cabinet drawers that launch across the room ~Drawers that deposit everything in them on the overhead when opened ~lockers and trunks that unpack themselves noisily ~food/drink containers that are less than user friendly ~chairs that suddenly remove their own legs —Just to name a few—

Strategy (Tactics/Discipline)

Taught in Basic, Cables mind hungrily absorbed everything and he even had several late Chow hall “discussions” with instructors over the lessons taught the day before. Disecting and re-hashing each battle or scenario.
