History

Family (or Creators)

Henry Burroughs Holliday Alice Jane McKey

Pre-RP

Doc Holliday hails from Delsauria, a desert colony under the control of Nepsleslia. Henry was born into a wealthy family that had a good deal of influence on Delsauria and were creeping in on industry businesses in Nepsleslia Prime. This, obviously led to some conflict with more ambitious upstarts and individualists on Delsauria and less then accommodating businessmen on Nepsleslia Prime. However, the repercussions of this aggressive take on increasing one's position in the world would have to come later. For now, let's focus on the subject…

Henry “Doc” Holliday was a paradoxically good student while proving to be a troublemaker outside of the home. His parents invested on Henry learning business (which necessitated learning Yamataigo and Trade), history, and dentistry, which was requested by Doc. It was his way of subtly mocking them, you see. Regardless, the now sixteen year old Nepsleslian had run into the usual disease of his species, which was crime. Don't get me wrong, he was no gun runner or thug, but his gambling was less than legal, nor were his methods in dealing with cheats and being accused as such. Henry was a particularly skilled POKER PLAYER, earning him many profitable pots and accusations of cheating. Now, when money is involved, people become far more indignant over a game of cards. Usually a knife or gun is pulled, of which, Holliday had plenty of luck in dealing with, leading to experience in dirty fighting and weapons.

At eighteen, things quickly turned from a young man who had the world (underbelly included) at his fingertips, to the scion of a dynasty on the run for his life. On a business trip, Burroughs Holliday was killed in an “accident,” according to officials, but considering that he was killed on Nepsleslia Prime, it was more likely disgruntled businessmen had him killed. Alice was killed on her way home, with a far more obvious collection of bullets in her back. Doc used the last of the family resources to book a private flight to Yamatai before the assassins had a chance to get to him.

Doc Holliday needed money, badly. The trip had exhausted his resources and he couldn't afford to be caught with his pants down if the assassins decided to finish the job and end the Holliday bloodline. However, the Navy suddenly sounded like a good idea. Henry had grown interested in fighter craft during his student hood. Beautiful cat-like women, constantly moving, and a pay-check? Well, it was certainly a start…

Skills

Communications

Doc Holliday can speak and read Nepsleslian, Yamataigo, and Trade fluently. However, he has an interminable colonist accent that rears its head in all three of the languages.

Fighting

Henry is ambidextrous and has had plenty of practice with his personal HHGs and combat knife on ACCOUNT of his night-life. His shooting is one of his stronger talents, but it is only second to one thing…

Vehicles

As according to Yamatai Star Army's fighter doctrine, Doc has been trained on how to fly a fighter spacecraft and how to conduct a dogfight. He distinguished himself as a skilled fighter pilot, but his discretion has much to be wished for.

Knowledge

Holliday's teachings were extensive on the subject of what he was allowed to do as a businessman and also the events of the past, of which could apply situations he could find himself in future encounters.

Humanities

As is befit a gentleman and a businessman, Doc Holliday has been taught by his parents on how to conduct himself from parties to aggressive dealings with rivals. He can make a gracious host of himself and a Hellish opponent to face at the meeting table.

Rogue

Henry is a shady character when it comes to cards, and his escapades in escaping his assassins required stealthy movements and a knowledge of locks. He can sneak his way through a packed bar and walk away whistling a ditty with the whole place's betting money. But he'd much rather get it all through poker.

Medical and science

Doc is, as his nickname comes from, a dentist. He has a DEGREE IN his pack that denotes his status along with a few tools. He has minor knowledge of medical procedures and such, but it's really nothing that anybody else doesn't already know.
