David Lyric in Roleplay

David Lyric is a mighty fine Player Character played by LavaLung.

Appearance

Build and Skin Colour: About average height, with a thick and slightly stocky muscular structure. His skin is a weathered, dirty bronze.
Facial Features and Eye Colour: Somewhere inbetween squared and rounded, but decidedly tough, bullish facial features at any rate. Bright green eyes contrast heavily with his weathered face, complete with thick browline and round nose. He almost always has a stubble.
Hair colour and Style: Reasonably short, curly and jet black. Never really has a style, but it suits his face at least.

Distinguishing Features: A shallow scar running from the bridge of his nose towards his left cheek. Only takes off his black gloves to fight.

Personality

Judgmental, quick to make decisions about other people, and holds grudges easily. Conversely, Dave knows his own limits and has a large amount of loyalty towards people that have earned his trust. He can turn from totally relaxed and joking around to deadly serious on the turn of coin, a controlled personality if ever there was one. Also smarter than he first appears, most of the things he says and does are premeditated- except when he is particularly angry, but that doesn't happen too frequently either. One eccentricity is that he is automatically distrustful of women- Since he has had little actual experience with them, one can only assume it has something to do with his predecessor's instincts.

* Likes: Having someone around to watch his back, antique weapons, camp fires, hard liquor…
* Dislikes: Nosy or arrogant people, the cold, tomboy women…
* Goals: Military success, money, survival…

History

Pre-Assignment

Not much. He was cloned after the deceased power armour pilot ace William Sing, along with several dozen others. Growth acceleration was used to get him to the same age level, and he did see brief combat on board a Veeshan Heavy Cruiser before the end of the Kennewes Offensive- but was wounded when his power armour got crippled.

Only just recovering as his leader, Admiral Coleman, defected to the greens, he remained totally loyal but none the less felt severly agrivated at the idea he was technically betraying his own side at the same time. Now preparing to finish the war from the other side, he had alot of trouble comming to terms with his new allies…

Service Record

* Currently none.

Skills

Fighting and Physical

Mr.Lyric was created and trained from birth for combat, and since he isn't particularly stupid, he knows a decent thing or two about it by now. Alrough he prefers hand to hand and knife fighting due to an unhealthy perforation of single combat, he is really quite rounded in all his skills ranging from rifles to grenades. He is in great physical shape, alrough a little slower and tougher than average. Due to his beginnings he is more used to the Demon power armour, but appreciates the shielding in the Water 2 more than most.

Communication

David Lyric is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other marines through headsets, ships, ground vehicles, power armour, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. He is also skilled in field communications and is proficient in all rudimentary forms of communication (hand signals, flashing lights, etc).

Survival

Dave knows how to survive in hostile environments. He can build shelters, hunt and forage for food, build a fire, etc. Camouflage and guerrilla warfare tactics are pretty familiar to him.

Strategy (Tactics/discipline)

Dave can understand and give out tactical commands and work with his troop to follow those commands efficiently. He knows the importance of teamwork on the battlefield, has been intensively trained in discipline and morale, and is able to recognise the command structure even while under extreme pressure (combat, etc). He knows basic math in order to calculate distances, etc, and can use a tactical map.

Engineering

David was never specifically taught anything, but has learned alot about power armours, weapons and general machinery from being around it constantly. Perhaps actual knowledge and interest will develop in time, but at the moment it only really rears itself as a knack for noticing when a component is not working correctly.

Leadership

Again not something he was trained for, but David is a very steadfast person that recognises the value of morale amongst his ranks. He is always the first person to bounce back, tending to the wounded and getting other people back up and moving by example.

Culinary

Not exactly in his original training agenda, but David had the culinary staff teach him basic cooking skills- He isn't a very good cook or anything still, Dave just figured it would be the one skill nobody else would be bothered learning, and thus a damn handy one if they ever got stranded. He rarely dabbles in this out of hobby.
