Darian Fulram is a player character played by David_F and is currently involved in the Cirrus Station plot.
Height: 6' Mass: 170 Measurements: Bra Size: N/A
Build and Skin Color: Thin to medium build. Far from bulky, Darian, though not as strong as others, has an agile atheticism that gives him a bit more speed than the typical grunt. Skin coloration is a littler more pale than the average working marine but not to point of being startling or unusual.
Facial Features and Eye Color: Fair complexion with blue eyes. Darian looks a bit younger than his actual age, which can give other marines a false impression of naivety or lack of experience.
Hair Color and Style: Short spiky blond hair that never grows longer than a two inches. When lost in thought, Darian often runs his fingers through his hair which, along with having to wear hat, often leaves it messy.
Distinguishing Features: Despite an unscarred body that marks him as other than a heavy laborer and/or gang member, Darian has a cybernetic thumb and index finger on his left hand. He also wears an ear ring when allowed in his left ear. Though carefully spiked in the morning, his hair often juts out of control by evening due to his absentminded tapering with it when concentrating.
Personality: Although he has a way with words, Darian attracts trouble like a moth to a flame even though most of it isn't even his fault. As such, he has learned the value of hanging out with hard hitting alpha male types that enjoy beating trouble black and blue. While not defenseless- he passed basic after all- Darian delights in solving problems in ways that doesn't require cleaning up with a mop and bucket. Though he avoids the slang and crude language used by most Nepleslians, Darian loves wild times and vulgar jokes as much as the next man. He has the reputation of being somewhat of a “hollow leg” due to his ability to consume large amounts of alcohol without becoming noticeably affected. The first indication he's had too much is when his head hits the table.
Darian can be sarcastic at times; although, he makes sure others know it is done out of humor as he is a generally upbeat and positive guy. Despite his dislike of physical aggression, Darian is a sports fanatic, whether playing or watching, and usually has the rundown of all the local sports clubs.
He is also an avid bird watcher as the smog and industrial pollution made them all but extinct in his home city. So far, he has spotted over 65% of the specimens listed in his collection of bird books. Much to the ridicule of his peers (he just laughs and ignores it), Darian likes to carry around binoculars even when on a spaceship. After all, you never know.
Likes: Talking, sports, bird watching Dislikes: Violence, Women who dominate conversation, street toughs with scissors, and ship food Goals: Spot 100% of Birds listed in his three books, become a star player on one of the ship's team… Darian could care less about rising in the ranks
Breck and Kayla Fulram still live on a major city on Nepleslia. No siblings
Born in the machining district of a major Nepleslian city, Darian was slated at an early age to become part of the labor force and spent three years making targeting displays in a factory contracted out to the government before being selected to act as a local union representative due to his relatively clean cut image and tactful alternatives to typical slang. However, as conditions and pay deteriorated, Darian was put in direct charge of organizing the work force in case of a possible strike as well as influencing possible “scabs” to think of their fellow workers.
Eager to make an example, the plant assistant manager hired a group of street toughs to make Fulram see hard “reason.” By the time he was rescued by the plant workers, Darian had lost his left thumb and index fingers to a pair of packaging scissors. Before the union members beat the thugs to death, they were able to learn that their own employers were responsible and saw to it with the help of their own crime connections that a change in upper management was imminent.
Although the local law enforcement couldn't pin anything directly on Darian (who was never actually involved as he was in the hospital getting replacements), they felt the need to inform him that military enlistment would not only place Darian well out of their jurisdiction but would also prevent him from having to take part in any more aggressive negotiations.
Taking their advice, Fulram enlisted within the week and hasn't spent a single moment regretting it.
Biology- Darian knows some ornithology as he is an avid bird watcher and spends a great deal watching and reading about their habits during his spare time.
Maintenance and Repair- Trained in field repair, Darian knows enough to do minor maintenance and overhauls on combat armor, planetside transports, and typical marine equipment such as fire arms.
Fighting- Despite his dislike of violence, Darian knows how to defend himself in close combat as a result of intense military training. Darian prefers methods that incapacitate or slow down an aggressor rather than any could cause permanent damage
Survival- Taught during basic, Darian has typical marine survival skills including how to find water and food, how to build shelters, how to read a variety of maps, and how to find proper north without a compass.
Tactics- Darian knows basic maneuvers such as flanking, bottlenecking, guerilla warfare, and the roles and importance of armor, artillery, infantry, and air support.
Leadership- As union rep and a generally well spoken individual, Darian has developed minor public speaking and organizational skills not typically seen in a marine his age; however, he isn't comfortable leading and only helps out in a minor capacity if needed.
Entertainment-Dancing. His mother, who married beneath her station in life, taught Darian a few of the less complicated dances that often take place in upper society functions. Since striking out on his own and pursuing the local nightlife scenes whenever he has leave, Darian has picked up some of the less formal styles.
