He prefers, however, to not have to use such objects in violent ways, as it “could scare potential clients'.

History

Family (or Creators)

Father (Name Unknown) Mother(Name Unknown, Subject claims is 'Deceased')

Pre-RP

Stripe ran away at what he believes to be the age of 4 or 5, after his father used a soldering iron on him, running it from right collar bone to the right navel area.

In the years between when he ran away and enlistment, he got involved with some of the gang wars on a predominantly support capacity, fixing and repairing the gear of whatever gang he was part of at that time.

He avoided being branded or tattooed with a gang insignia by the sole virtue of never getting the required amount of combat or kills, which saved him from execution. This doe not mean he has no combat experience by any means, however- like most Nepleslians, he has extensive combat experience but little formal training.

Along the way, he bumped into a female Cook how won his eternal respect by not judging him and helping him when he was in need.

Skills

Communication

Living on Neplesia has given him a rather knowledgeable grasp of Nepleslian, especially in terms of gang slang and criminal euphemisms. This knowledge was improved upon in training in the military, giving him knowledge on the use of various communications technology and a first-hand encounter with the horrors of paperwork.

Fighting

Stripe has fought in various gangs and survived, although admittedly this is largely due to his support role in such gangs. This first-hand experience is enriched through combat techniques learned in basic training, but Stripe knows that he's still a small fry in terms of combat ability.

Survival

The training in the military has given him knowledge of the essentials, but his ability really shines in urban environments, slums, and in the midst of chaos.

Strategy (Tactics/discipline)

He knows the theory, but has very little first-hand experience. He really, really hopes this doesn't get him killed, knowing that training can be little match against true veterans.

Maintenance and Repair

Stripe learned how to maintain and fix various things so as to gain some semblance of protection on the streets- you don't put the guying keeping your stuff going on the front lines, after all.

Engineering

After working for one or two particularly well-equipped gangs, he dabbled in using spare parts from unrepairable things which were brought back from time to time.

His lack of know-how on Technology Operation is limiting him on the software side, but otherwise he can build things to a certain extent.

I used the following article to choose facial shape, scroll down to see pics of the different types: http://www.wikihow.com/Determine-Your-Face-Shape
3)
I may be male, but I'm not stupid. Make a list of Historical Figure, separate by gender, then separate each into those with a bad rep and good rep. The ratios speak for themselves.
