Physical Description

At 5'8โ€œ and of a slim build on the lower end of muscular, Robin is not as physically imposing as most Nepleslian-born men. He is light-skinned, with straight brown hair that falls just past his shoulders and dark brown eyes. His most distinctive features are his high cheekbones and a long, thin scar across his neck.

His voice is a low tenor, often monotonous and distant in tone.

Personality

Robin's typical demeanor is a strange mix of relaxed, bored, flippant, and yet focused. He can play the part of the dutiful, subservient soldier, but unless forced into doing so he treats everyone with the same informal irreverance. While not overtly rude, he is quick with a smartass remark to anything he deems warrants one.

Despite this, he is generally a comradely sort, looking out for his peers however they need even as he gently ribs them for his own amusement. He's not one to engage in intimate and heartfelt conversation, but his loyalty to those he likes is steadfast.

Robin has a deeply ingrained loathing of authority. Strict rules and overbearing 'superiors' disgust him to the point of open defiance and even hostility. He has no trouble following sensible orders in a lenient and unrestrained environment, but bossiness for its own sake invites insubordination from him.

History

Robin was born in Funky City on Nepleslia to a single mother, Marie, who worked as a waitress at a local restaurant. His unknown father could be any of a number of men. His childhood was one of poverty and adversity. Marie doted on him, but she was too poor to take care of the both of them without help. As such, Robin felt forced to turn to crime from a young age. As a child, he worked as a thief and pickpocket. As he grew, his professional experience extended to breaking-and-entering, armed robbery, extortion, and general thuggery. By then, he had joined a gang and gotten in good with its membership, but that didn't last; Robin had constant arguments with the leader of his gang, that ultimately culminated in the young man having his throat slit and left for dead in an alley.

Luckily for Robin, his assailants were amateurs and the wound was shallow and non-fatal. It served as a wake-up call, however, and after medical care and recovery he decided to enlist in the NSMC in 33 YE to make a fresh start. This venture, too, started out well, but a few years in he began racking up more and more demerits for insubordination until finally, in 37 YE, he had enough and resigned just a few infractions away from getting himself dishonorably discharged. For a while after that, he drifted about and freelanced as security on civilian ships, until finally he entered formal employment under Origin Security

Skills Learned

Communications: Robin is fluent in Trade and Yamataigo. His time in the military has also left him with knowledge of hand signals, radio operation, and flashing light codes.

Fighting: A life of crime and soldiering have made Robin exceptionally proficient at multiple forms of combat. He is an excellent marksman and hand-to-hand fighter, with or without a weapon. He has been trained in the use of power armor, but has little practical experience.

Rogue: Having been a petty criminal in his youth, he is a is an old hand at skulking about quietly and picking pockets and locks, and has a wealth of knowledge about criminal and gang operations.

Knowledge: Though lacking in formal education, Robin is an autodidact, using computers and other available resources to teach himself. He is not an expert in any field, but he has a greater than average understanding of many subjects, as well as the ability to research what he doesn't know and a reliable memory.

Physical: Robin is very fit, possessing great stamina and agility. He is a practiced freerunner and climber, owing to many hectic chases through urban environments in his past.

Engineering: Since signing on with Origin, Robin was acquainted himself with the workers there and the processes they use to design and build equipment. His skill in this area is still burgeoning and untested, but he is eager to put it to use.

Demolitions: His varied experiences have taught him a lot about making and handling explosives, from homemade pipe bombs to military-grade detonation charges. He knows which chemicals, when combined, will go boom.
