Psychological Characteristics

Personality: “Jim is pretty outgoing, always has been from what I know. He's the life of the party quite often, but just don't ask about his limp. See those eyes of his? Built them himself, he'll tell you. That's why they're purple, he likes being noticed. Tells a good yarn, too. Well, that's Jim when we're off the clock. But he's a soldier, and fights like a Streeter. Tough, fast and dirty. We all like our job, but he, well! It's strange, when he's repairing a machine, even in combat, he treats it like a medic treats a wounded man. Anyway, that's Jim.”

Family (or Creators)

Father: Zebulon Calypto Mother (Deceased): Freya Calypto Brothers: Dylan (Deceased), Junior Sister: Freya-Grace Jim is the second eldest, after Dylan.


Jim wants to get away. His father was an “Ant” engineer, who taught him the basics of the skill. Jim never liked it, and used to run with Streeters as much as he could. His father hated it. Dylan used to be the same, until he died. Zebulon didn't want to lose another son.

A fall stopped that. Jim was running from a rival gang through a condemned building when the floor gave way. He fell three floors, and his leg was almost torn off. His gang found him and managed to get him to a doctors before he bled out. The doctor cobbled together a cybernetic leg from scrap and Jim's flesh. It wasn't perfect. It wasn't even. But the Doctor had done it in such a way, no other cybernetic expert could correct it.

However, Zebulon was glad his son finally stayed off the streets. Business wasn't so good. The Calypto's main customer, a large gang boss, was “put out of business” - permanently. At 18, Jim decided to volunteer for the army to get money for his family. He just scraped by in the physical, and joined the Marine Infantry. Soon after, Jim's proficiency with machines was discovered. He was volunteered to become an engineer. But he still can't fix his leg.
