Physical Description

Orlan has tan skin that is on the darker side and his head is diamond-shaped. His black hair is usually short and messy. He stands at 6'0 with a toned body and has small hazel eyes. Orlan's face is clean-shaven and his ears are round with their lobes free. His voice is quite low.


Orlan is usally polite around his peers, though he tends to feel that mech pilots are foolish for operating what he believes are impractical machines and is not afraid to provide his critique for them. He feels that tanks are superior and will often give their crews praise and encouragement. Orlan will not dive headfirst into the blades and guns of the enemy, preferring instead to provide support with his electric weaponry from his power armor that he built himself. When not in a fight, Orlan does not mind small talk with his comrades, though he can usually be found alone. Despite being a Synthetic, Orlan has a great respect for Naturals because of their hard work and determination to prove themselves.


Orlan Snell was born 9ๆ—ฅ 4ๆœˆ YE 41 on Sirris VI. He was created from the Pine-Oaklen BioSynthetic Foundation Laboratory like many other biosynthetics. Orlan was provided with language skills, simple social skills, a basic form of military training, and a schematic for a personality during his time in a cloning chamber. While Orlan was fond of the NDC's military, he disproved of their usage of mechs, or as the NDC called them Frames, considering them to be inferior to tanks and power armor. He felt like he could create his own contribution to the military and manufactured his own power armor dubbed Thunderwave that had the ability to manipulate electricity and was insulated to protect him from getting electrocuted himself. Orlan was about to join the Duskerian Legion when he was dismayed to discover that his power armor was against their regulations.

Disappointed, Orlan returned home where he thought about his next move when he came into contact with a Natural police officer named Uther who Orlan learned was a former mercenary. He wanted to learn more about Uther's history, and when the officer's break-time came, Orlan would be fascinated by Uther's stories about his time on the field, mainly the one where he lost his right eye in a sabotage mission gone awry. This caused Orlan to develop massive respect for Naturals who were willing to put in the effort to work and make a name for themselves and through the advice and encouragement of Uther donned his power armor and took on mercenary work across NDC-controlled space. Most of it involved helping police forces put away dangerous deviants, but Orlan was glad to be contributing to the safety of the public either way.

Despite his hard work, Orlan felt that he could do more to help out the NDC, and figured that he may be able to offer his services to them.

Skills Learned

Fighting: Being born into the Warrior Cadre thanks to military training in his AI stage, Orlan possesses skill in martial arts and combat with his power armor along with its built-in shock weaponry.

Maintenance and Repair: Orlan put in the time and effort to build and maintain his own specialized power armor, but this has also given him a general knowledge of other types of power armor such as the NDC Revenant PA.

Physical: Working in dangerous environments as a mercenary required Orlan to be fit for the task. When he is not fighting he will sometimes exercise to maintain a wealthy weight and muscle mass to ensure that he will not fall behind in the health department.

Uther Loggins-Friend

Inventory & Finance

Orlan Snell has the following:

Thunderwave Power Armor: Orlan's personal custom-built power armor. It is navy blue with a power pack integrated into the back to provide Orlan with the ability to generate electricity on the fly that he can use offensively against enemies, but can also be used as a makeshift battery charger should the need arise. The power armor was designed to allow for maneuverability complete with thrusters while also resisting small-arms fire. It also has insulation to prevent Orlan from being electrocuted.

Orlan Snell currently has 3000 KS.
