|Organization:||Nepleslia Star Amy|
|Rank:||Private 3rd Class|
|Current Placement:||NSS Arcadia|
Height: 6'6 (1.98m) Mass: 250lbs (113kg)
Build and Skin Color: Large, thick, and muscular; Belial possesses the raw strength and natural build of his father, making him taller than the majority of Nepleslians. His skin tone is dark after his mother, with a clean complexion and a smooth touch.
Facial Features and Eye Color: Belial's face appears to be chiseled out of stone rather than formed naturally. His chin is finely sculpted with sharp edges that express themselves up his cheeks, belittled by a protruding brow and flat forehead. His nose is large enough for his face, but altogether unobtrusive in its place above a set of half-full lips, lighter in color than the rest of his expression. Two almond shaped eyes complete the hard-assed military appeal with a surprisingly bright touch, adding a color of green in the mixture of tan skin and dark hair.
Hair Color and Style: In accordance with standards, Belial keeps his hair cropped short in a no-style pure-utility cut, unwilling to allow the black mass atop his head to provide any distractions. He sports no facial hair to speak of either.
Distinguishing Features: Belial is mostly distinguished by the fact that he looks like a runt ID-SOL, but otherwise the only unique aspect of his physical appearance is that his left eye is always half closed.
Personality: Despite the manly, muscle-head visage, Belial is a calm, level-headed individual who reeks of irony. Anger is seldom held in his mind for longer than a moment and he will always resort to words before harsh action, detesting useless violence and unmeasured consequences. In the rare occurrence he does participate in some sort of personal conflict, mental or physical, Belial tends towards defensive positions; rarely becoming offensive unless absolutely necessary. This, of course, does not account for the man's explosive temper. Though he possesses a mile-long fuse, once he reaches his limit, Belial will lose himself to a red-hot rage, often destroying most inanimate objects in the near vicinity.
Belial follows some obscure personal code, one that he speaks little of, but will adhere to even unto his death. This guideline of rules includes various hints of ancient concepts such as Knightly Chivalry, though blended in with a modern perspective on the galaxy. In all, the man is quite well-placed for one from Nepleslia, if not the most intelligent of individuals.
Likes: Classical Music, Nature, Strategy Games; Anything involving him playing an instrument, and last of all, Canines. Belial absolutely adores dog-like creatures of all kinds. Dislikes: Caffeinated Beverages, Hard-Ass Marines, Cybernetics. Goals: Get his mother and sister out of Nepleslia, Become a better Strategy Game player.
Dina Ecanus (47), Mother; Musician/Writer. Gabrielle Ecanus (20), Sister; Musician.
Belial was born to Dina Ecanus, a Geshrin woman, in the year YE 11 along with his twin sister, Gabrielle. Both were the product of rape committed by an irate ID-SOL in the city of Roger Wilco, making the latter of the two a surprising addition to the pregnancy. Of the two babes, only Belial was born in any form of passable health, while his sister spent the first year of her life in a medical ward for fear of a premature death.
Childhood for the twins was strange. Their mother had few ideas of how to take care of children and her job as a musician provided little in realm of wealth. Gabrielle was often sick, a situation that demanded most of Dina's time, often leaving Belial on his own for long periods of solitude. Over the years, the boy developed a fondness for the gardens of Roger Wilco, as minimal as they were, and ventured there as often as possible, going so far as to even start his own miniature garden in the limited space of his home. Surprisingly, this endeavor functioned to aid in his sister's health. Putting the situation together, Belial dedicated himself to finding a way off of Nepleslia for his sister and mother as well. Albeit, Belial was hardly the most intelligent of individuals, leaving his opportunities in the matter few and far between. For this reason, Belial did not attend school; instead, he worked whatever jobs were available, posing as an adult whenever he could get away with the act. Although thankful for her child's actions Dina did not approve. She wanted a proper education for her children, but with Gabrielle's inability to stay out of bed for more than a day and Belial's steadfast determination to what he saw as his duty to protect, the only thing the woman could do was provide the both of them with her own teachings. When there was time, both twins learned to read, write, and play various instruments. Belial would make regular trips to a library on his mother's request, fetching texts on history and retrieving fiction novels for his sister. Altogether, life was difficult for the family, but otherwise peaceful.
When the Star Empire of Nepleslia was formed, Belial saw his chance to truly help his mother and sister. With his genetics, the boy made an ideal soldier; if not as perfect as the ID-SOL, and reasoned that his paycheck could easily be redirected to his family without a hitch. Without further ado, Belial shipped off to basic training to start his career in the Star Army of Nepleslia's Marine Corps. He immediately took to the training and excelled in the physical aspects of warfare, if not the mental subtleties. Never-the-less, he continued to progress ever onward, eventually graduating from the Advanced Training courses and joining the ranks of the Nepleslian Military.
Belial was taught to read and write by his mother and while he has never had a “proper” education, he is fluent in the Nepleslian language. Basic and Advanced training for the Marine Corps introduced basic hand signals and other low-evolved forms of communication such as signal lighting, those of which were picked up impressively fast. He can aptly utilize radio transceivers and communication devices on high-tech vessels such as Power Armor or Aerospace vehicles.
Along with the basic training offered by the Marine Corps, Belial has always had a keen interest in nature and differing environments. This personal endeavor has turned the man into an efficient woodsmen, allowing him to thrive in most hostile terrains even more-so than a citizen-friendly zone. Granted, most of his knowledge still stems off theory.
Belial is most situated to hitting things with a large, blunt object, but is proficient in the use of all basic firearms, archaic weaponry (knives, etc), and most foreign arms due to the Marine Corps training. Training has given him a keen insight into the use of more explosive weaponry, though he prefers to utilize less force in most combat oriented situations. Last of all, Belial is proficient in the use of Power Armor, but he shines at the allocation of heavy weapons, both strong and massive enough to wield them efficiently and with a degree of accuracy.
The man is naturally built like a lighthouse. Belial has always sported a mesomorph, muscular build. In many ways, he is like a runt ID-SOL, mainly because he is; though he is not up to par with a “super soldier” in any way. Military training has only increased Belial's physical capacities and he works to keep himself in shape at all times, going so far as to workout and exercise up to three hours a day.
For what Belial lacks in intelligence he makes up in creativity. Years of playing strategy games has taught the lug to think beyond his weaknesses, employing several off-the-wall ideas and implementing strategy into daily routines and exercises. Along with his keen sense of environments, Belial can easily spot an ambush and is adept at turning terrain to his favor. He has yet to distinguish himself as one who can issue commands, but it is apparent that he posses an intimate knowledge of morale and basic command structures.
Both Belial and his sister were raised with music. Though he is very much the lesser musician of the two, the man can play well for one of his age, sporting an adept ability with the Cello and Piano, though he will often deny proficiency with the instruments due to an unwarranted doubt in his talents.
Belial Ecanus is currently a Private 3rd Class in the Nepleslia Star Amy, Marine Corps. He receives a weekly salary of 60DA per week.
