Physical Description

Tobias is a somewhat short, gangly Nepleslian young man. About 5 feet and 10 inches tall and 186 pounds in weight. He has fair skin, blue eyes, and brown hair. His hair is usually messy, as it is very hard to keep neat.

While as fit as one could expect from a Marine or even IPG agent, Tobias perpetually looks like he could stand to gain some weight. While not extremely physically attractive, he is nonetheless good looking.

When not in uniform, he usually wears a gray hoodie and beige pants.


Because Tobias grew up with his relatively wealthy parents, he knows a fair bit about social interaction, but not much more than he needs to get by in most situations. He can be outgoing when he needs to be, but would prefer to spend most of his time by himself or with a small group of friends.

Likes; Computers and games, small groups of friends, sweets

Dislikes; Large social settings in which he does not know what to do

Fears; His parents finding out about what he does, Women/rejection


Tobias Carrick was born in YE 20 on December fifth.

Tobias was born the only child of a relatively wealthy couple who lived on Nepleslia prime. He spent most of his youth playing games or in school. As a child, he had an affinity with computers, While his childhood was mostly unworthy of note, he did enlist in the Nepleslian military at age 16. Though specializing in cyberwarfare, Tobias also trained in all of the normal areas. About a year into his career, Tobias was discharged after disobeying a direct order to vent a space station containing multiple civilians in order to catch or kill a criminal. After his discharge, Tobias worked as a freelance hacker, taking many jobs, but those that he accepted were usually only against companies that had a history of exploiting others. Just before his abduction by the IPG, he hacked a company that was known to have nigh-impregnable defenses. This turned out to be an IPG front, and a bug was inserted into his system, allowing them to track him down.

Eventually, he was transferred to the NSS Inquiry, serving as a marine there before being pulled away yet again to a new posting, attached to the 309th Marines.
