Of middling height for a New Tur'listan Lorath, Profundity stands at five and a half feet tall. His build is somewhat lop-sided, with his cybernetic arm clearly being made for someone a bit more muscular than he is. (He's working on it.)
His hair is black with streaks of gray from age, with amber eyes. His skin is pale, the sort of white-gray that appreciates full body suits when he's in full sun.
All in all, he would be a fairly unremarkable New Tur'listan if not for the cybernetic arm and eye. Both approximate how he normally looks, but he chose function over form when the decision came around. Up close, most of the right side of his body shows signs of scarring that couldn't quite be healed. The feathers on his right-side wing are somewhat shorter than the left.
Nearly eighty years of age by most standards, he's seen a
lot in his lifetime. With the New Tur'listan's penchant for recall, that gives him a wide range of information and experience to draw from … or dwell on.
His passion to do well and his desire to help others are as strong as ever, but he's a little more…rough around the edges now. To put it another way, his bedside manner sucks. He would have been a poor fit to go back to civilian service after all that happened, but his gruff, no-nonsense manner fits in surprisingly well among the rough-and-tumble of the Space Marines.
Profundity has taken a particular interest in the military's advanced medical technologies, including drones, nano gels, chemical compounds, and so forth. Between researching those and pouring over the biological data from a dozen and more species, the Doctor stays pretty busy in his 'free' time. The one thing he
doesn't want to do is be left to his own thoughts.
Like many New Tur'listans, Profundity trained from a young age to hone his mind, develop his talents, and seek knowledge. Where others of his caste used their empathy to build bridges or their mental gifts to develop technology, Profundity found his calling in bringing the two strengths together - in medicine. It was in this way that he gained his name, “Profundity”, for the level of care he put into his patients feelings and the great knowledge he possessed of how the body works - and he how to fix it.
He pursued his passion with zeal up to and during his time with the Lorath Self Defense Force. Profundity was not inherently a violent man, however, and once his five years were up he returned to civil service. There, he began a family and became the Chief Surgeon of a local ICU. Things were idyllic, if challenging. His job had high demands, as expected, and raising children is no easy feat. He would change none of it.
The universe, however, had other plans. The Exodus, that tumultuous time when the Lorathian peoples were split, saw his family and many other Occhestians making a move to leave the system - and its rule - behind. It would not be a peaceful trip, and ultimately it would be loyalist Occhestians who would unravel the life he had worked so hard to build. An explosion claimed his family and much of the right-side of his body.
Bereft of family, purpose, and the hale body that he needed to perform his job, Profundity spent a number of weeks as little more than a refugee. It was a Nepleslian recruiter who would turn his life around and remind him of his calling - “You may not have been able to save your family, but there's plenty of others who still need you. What good are you to them laying in a ditch?”
His journey through the refresher training, as well as the 'upgrade' that restored the parts of his body he'd lost, brought him back to the world of the living.
Knowledge (History, law, reference, memory); Members of the New Tur'lista house are expected to be well acquainted with the history of law, science, and technology. They are also expected to have an excellent memory and ability to recall information at a moment's notice. Profundity, in particular, has a deep understanding of biology. Starting with the building blocks, chemical features, organic compounds, and so on, all the way up to gross motor functions and the like. His understanding of these fields is largely limited to their medical applications, but he can make inferences based on what he knows. He's unlikely to whip up a chemical bomb or devise new technology, but he could figure out the details behind a vaccine, anti-venom, etc, based on what he knows.
Technology Operations(Computers and networking, nodal system); All members of the New Tur'lista house are expected to have an ability to operate most technology belonging to the Lorath. Also they are expected to be able to operate new forms of technology when given enough time to learn the workings of the device. Profundity has further specialized into cybernetics, neural interfaces, and drone operations.
Communications (proficiency in communication; writing and speaking, Includes cryptography); Psionic Lorath are expected to be able to converse with excellent ease, this involves being able to operate devices that aid in communication, understand new languages with minimal effort, communicate their thoughts verbally and in written form, and also be able to decipher coded messages.
Profundity is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, ships, ground vehicles, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. Profundity is fluent in Lorathian and Nepleslian. He can speak and write it correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. The character is skilled in field communications and is proficient in all rudimentary forms of communication (hand signals, flashing lights, etc).
Fighting (Martial arts, power armor, hand-to-hand combat, weapons): Profundity received intensive hand-to-hand combat training (primarily focused on disabling and/or killing opponents) and has followed up that knowledge with a rigorous training program. Weapons he is trained in include pistols of all types, knives, grenades (and other forms of explosive weaponry) and rifles of all kinds. The character is in excellent physical shape and has considerable endurance. The character is also able to pilot land-based power armors, but must rely on the suit’s A.I. to do anything advanced.
Profundity's medical knowledge plays into his fighting style somewhat. All Nepleslian marines are trained in vital points, etc, but there's a difference between disabling someone and killing them.
Strategy (Tactics/discipline): Profundity 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 recognize the command structure even while under extreme pressure (combat, etc). The character is able to recognize ambush points. He knows basic math in order to calculate distances, etc, and can use a tactical map.
Medical and Science (Surgery, pathology, medicine, cybernetics installation): Profundity knows how to diagnose and treat conditions, apply first aid and emergency care (CPR, etc), and perform field surgery/general surgery if given the proper tools/facilities. The character knows how to work in and use hospital equipment.
Biology (Includes genetics, xenobiology, zoology, etc.): Beyond the knowledge required to be capable in the field of medicine, Profundity has learned the the fundamentals and sciences that underlie his field of work. More recently, he's become interested in man-machine interfaces and their finer workings, as well as in the physiologies of non-Lorathians.
