Jack Pine was born in YE18.
From what Jack has been told, Jack's mother was an engineer, his father a soldier. Both were stationed on the same vessel during the Third Elysian War. He was born the same day his parents died near the end of the war. Newborn Jack was taken to an escape pod while his father died trying to free his mother who was pinned under one of the ships supports for the corridor when the core overloaded. The emissions from the unstable core lead to the mutation that turned his hair white and his eyes crimson. The overload was caused by damage dealt to the ship during fleet combat against Elysian warships. Jack moved from orphanage to orphanage in Yamatai star systems, then Nepleslian systems, then to the united outer colonies where he met another orphan named Zeke, his future best friend and business partner. They eventually moved to the Nepleslian systems and joined the military when they came of age. Jack showed particular skill in hand to hand as well as weapon/vehicle handling and maintenance, while Zeke showed a knack for communications equipment repair/use. After five years of service they left to form their own private military.
However Jack was actually created by PsychoPomp LLC. as an attempt at creating the perfect soldier. Obedient, physically fit, loyal, merciless, and devoted to the mission to the point of self sacrifice to achieve completion. This experiment was both a success and a failure, as Jack fit every criteria until he formed a conscious. Jack still has no idea of the truth and due to these circumstances has caused mental instability on a deep level. And even more is the fact that Sarah who they both believe to be his sister was actually the genetic template used to create him.

Jack Pine has the following items:
Name: Jack Harbinger
Appearance: A 6'2 human with a very angular face, five'o clock shadow covering his lower face, a scar running down the right side of his face. But these are not the most prominent features, as his snow white hair and crimson colored eyes stand out, and he is decently muscled but not overtly so. He has a tattoo covering his back and identical copies on his shoulders of a black shield with a pair of crimson broadswords crossed the front of the shield.
Personality: Jack is quiet, and a bit of a loner, though he does not shy away from conversation. He tends to examine every aspect of where ever he goes, as if expecting to discover something hidden. He can be blunt when under pressure, but overall keeps calm in stressful situations. Finally he tends to come off as depressing at times, and dresses darkly, which is part of it. He does take stock in religion, or magic, and feels that a man makes his own destiny. Outwardly he seems stoic, and even charismatic when he wants to be, but inside he is a broken man.
History: Jack was born in a small village in a frontier area, where his family farmed, the oldest son of a family of six. He has a younger brother and three younger sisters. He left looking for adventure when he was younger, so he now travels as a hired sword for causes that seem noble, or good. All the while looking for a purpose, something to fight for.
I'm hoping to build a faction with this character, and I hope others will join for the ride. The biggest thing for him is the end goal, but I want the sister character mentioned to be a big factor of his story later. In the case Jack Pine becomes inactive:
