    "We are all here because those who gave their lives for us thought us worthy of sacrifice. Keep that in your mind my friend; at the front of every morning and the end of every dream." - Alvaro Lupinacci speaking to an unnamed Mobile Infantry trooper on the Zion Main Theme Song Battle Theme Basic Information Name: Alvaro Lupinacci Place of Birth: Hepsarus Date of Birth: 13th July 2276 Age: 22 Gender: Male Height: 6'0 Physical Description: Weight: 160 lbs Hair colour: Black Eye colour: Blue Military Information Rank: Petty Officer Second Class [FORMERLY] Branch: Federation Fleet, Weapons Station [FOMRERLY] Date of Enlistment: 12th January 2299 Years of Service: 0 Service Record: Active Combat Scenarios - 4 (+2 Asteroid Field sanctioned practises) Fleet Simulations - 3 -Completed Basic -Assigned to the UCF Ulysses S. Grant as a Cadet -Completed Weapons Station Basic Training -Promoted to Crewman -Disabled the UCF Grey Court Corvette so infantry boarding action may take place and the ship recovered. -Brought the Grant probes in to gather intel on the derelict space station in the Arcturas Nebula and defended against hostile boarders as a direct result -Promoted to Petty Officer Third Class. -Countered and destroyed 4 separatist vessels, with the occupants of the last escaping to a nearby planet and hunted by the 112th. -Began training in the Warfare Station -Promoted to Petty Officer Second Class -Manned Warfare Station in first contact with the void capable Transport Bug-Caste and sent scans to the Federation -Accused and Sentenced as a Traitor, Escaped Karrus - WANTED Personal Information Family: Alvo Lupinacci - Father; Citizen - Former Candidate for Sky Marshal - Aged 57 Bianca Lupinacci - Mother; Citizen - Retired Fleet Doctor, Currently owns a private practise on Hesparus - Aged 57 Mario Lupinacci - Brother; Citizen - Fleet Pathfinder - Aged 26 Calvo Lupinacci - Brother; Citizen - Fleet Lieutenant - Aged 24 Sereita Lupinacci - Twin Sister; Citizen - MIPOD - Aged 22 Bernita Lupinacci - Sister; Civilian - Hesparus Fleet Academy Student, Pilots Course - Aged 18 Romeo Lupinacci - Brother; Civilian - High School Student - Aged 15 Secutio Lupinacci - Sister; Civilian - High School Student - Aged 15 Backstory: Born into the Lupinacci Family who have a proud history of service the family had moved to Hesparus as part of the colonisation effort in the first wave and being Italian the family was stereotypically large embedded deeply in the process of building the shipyards they are far from the poorest, Alvaro has benefitted from this wealth in his education and prospects, raised on the fruit of high society he knows his way around a charity event, vineyard, orchestra and even a Yoga mat to name a few. The family is a large one even outside of his numerous siblings and before he was even in high school he would assist in his mother's Private Medical Practise wherein he became acquainted with the vigour of good charisma and people skills as he met her highly affluent clientele and learned to talk to such people regularly. Being so worry free meant he could focus easily on schooling and he emerged from high school with an immense Grade Sheet which would carry him into University where he would study Maths, Mechanics and Physics and while there he lived as any other student parties, sex and studies. His enlistment into the Fleet after University was a late decision of his own making, originally planning to not find himself on any kind of star ship but rather the Starside Research and Development track, his Father on a rare visit home took his son into his confidence about his aspirations to the office of Sky Marshall and while Alvaro's elder brother Calvo was a prospective for command of their own ship he did not think he had the talent for it. It was closer to a command than fatherly advice by his father but Alvaro was told to enlist as a standard Fleetsman, and work his way up. The work ethics of their long family history being what they were, a man didn't get to boast about anything he did not earn and so Alvaro enlisted the very next day, unwilling to reveal the "orders" or speak of his Father's aspirations to his peers Alvaro comes across as the Italian Prince out of his element. And in many ways he is, but his eyes are firmly planted on command to the Hesparans family is everything. Characteristics: Sophisticated, Polite, Chivalrous, Educated, Hidden-Drive, Jealous Other Media The Logged Disavowing of Alvaro Lupinacci, by Rear Admiral Alvo Lupinacci of the 5th Battlegroup. Leaked to the public by Dissenters. Personal Relationships Alvaro’s reaction to being asked to make another Pizza Roskana Nejem - The Arabian Princess - Things between myself and Nejem are moving forward, I have wept into her arms and seen both sides of her that jostle for control of her mind, one moment she is stoic and confident, almost cold and at others she is vulnerable and paranoid. It took me this long to realise that emulating her as a perfect being was extremely arrogant of me. I had no idea she had so much depth to her and I felt so bad for it I left her alone for a lot of the time after our arrest and subsequent escape. Somewhere along the line Nejem has become a more open woman, our circumstances being what they are I think the emotional vulnerability shifted her perspective. For the first time in public she expressed her willingness to go out with me, and I must have looked a fool in my reaction. I hope that we can become closer now that she has become more open. Alessandro Noviello - Fratello Mio - A pedigree Italian, we bonded together during our time on the Grant, he's a more reserved sort than I but he has his reasons that he revealed unto me. I hope he does not take our losses too hard, a man can only lose so much before he breaks...I shall have to ensure I spend some more time with him. We did however laugh over the Book of Mormon that I dug out of a musty cabinet on the Zion. Oh how we laughed together. Shu-Wei Zhang - The Matron of the Crew - Zhang survived! My spirits have been lifted greatly since discovering this, though as always she is work driven and serious...ah how she reminds me of my mother, perhaps this is what draws me too her? The two of them would probably get along in the best of ways, professional admiration and social common ground. She's a fiery one, and we need as much fire as we can get now. James Reacher - The Lad - Reacher and I first met on the Grant, I believe I gave him his first beer while on Federal Service but I might be wrong. From there we forged something of a repour friendly glances and smirks with the occasional joke. I can tell he'll be something of a social butterfly around here and I have little doubt in his ability as one of the Infantry Engineers, like the others I hope he can cope with these changes, I'll be sure to check in with him from time to time. Ajax Drivas - The Rock - Drivas is a good man, compassionate, enduring and an unbreakable spirit. A member of the Marauder attachment his veteran attitude and constitution makes him a force to gravitate toward when you fall into despair. He has asked me to keep an ear out for his request to prepare a meal for himself and his female companion Lisa; which while I do not enjoy becoming anyone's personal chef in matters of the heart...how can I refuse such an earnest request? Commander Nash - Forthright Officer - Nash was my supervisor on the Grant, I am not sure how he felt about my dual specialising in Warfare, he never made any objections but I definitely interacted with him less after that. He survived the Grant, the crash and our escape from Karrus. I hope he is okay, I shall make time to talk with him when I can. Rangi Setu - The Stoic - Setu and I were handling the emergency supplies on our exodus from the escape pods, side by side we carried the provisions and fought the Arachnids. His training shining through and opening my eyes to the realities of the Infantry's daily life. I can tell he does not like me, he admitted to me he was interested in Nejem while in the prison like it were his last words. He is probably hurting for her expressing interest in me, but out of respect for him and all he did both for me and others, I won't make light of it to him. Lisa White - A newer acquaintance of mine personally but everyone appears to know her, Ajax is besotted with her and I can see why; she is a true beauty. Though we have had not much cause to speak, indeed our first meeting was on the Zion I look forward to being on friendly terms with yet another pilot. Omar Saastamoinen - I'm pretty sure I saw Omar post the fall of the Grant, I will seek him out to see how he is doing. Greg - His stoicism will no doubt be of great importance turning these times...

    Steven Hartcourt

    When life gets tough remember; you're a pussy. " " - Pvt. Steven Hartcout's motto Basic Information Name: Steven Hartcourt Place of Birth: Tango Urilla Date of Birth: 14th Feb 2278 Age: 21 Earth Years Gender: Male Height: 6'2 Physical Description: Weight: 190 pounds Hair colour: Dark Brown Eye colour: Blue flawed with Green Distinguishing Features: -Deep laceration scar that starts at the left brow then cuts down over the eye and into the cheek -Near full body tattoos of a Gang and Tribal pattern, among those present are marks of those in the Urilla Guerillas, Void Movers and a Federation Flag which has been drawn over another tattoo -Burn scar tissue on the back of his calves -Bio-Tech Replacement for right forearm Military Information Rank: Lance Corporal Branch: Mobile Infantry Date of Enlistment: 28th October 2298 Years of Service: 0 Service Record: -16 Combat Drops -2 Ship Defenses -1 War Games -Passed Basic, finished course as a Squad Leader -Promoted to Private -Certified Grenadier (Basic Tier) -Promoted to Private First Class -Completed 10 Combat Drops -Promoted to Lance Corporal -Certified Grenadier (Intermediate Tier) -Lost Right Arm in Service to the Federation Personal Information Family: Martin Blake - Father; Citizen - Killed in a terrorist attack aged 30 - 13th July 2286, Tango Urilla Julie Blake - Mother; Civilian - Killed in a terrorist attack aged 28 - 13th July 2286, Tango Urilla Nina Blake - Sister; Civilian - Missing; Presumed Deceased aged 13 - 13th July 2286, Tango Urilla Yancy Greer - Legal Guardian; Criminal - Wanted on charges of terrorism - Location unknown Backstory: Born as Kyle Blake on Tango Urilla to Martin and Julie Blake, married that same year. His father Martin was a Mobile Infantry Veteran with a distinguished service record while his mother worked as a school teacher. Rooted firmly in Federation support and benefits Martin Blake was a spokesman for the Federation on the struggling world who would often try to cool the dissent exhibited by the populace but would equally work on the side of those who felt they were being harmed by the Federation to give them aid when the desert planet proved too taxing to them, he was a man of the people and a Citizen of proud stock who with his wife worked toward the betterment of all persons. However, with the Bug Wars, the Progenitors and Civil Strife more and more he began to lose support as his promises came across as empty and unfulfilled. As logistics failed so too did security, and while hosting a food drive and medical outreach anti-Federation gang the Urilla Guerrillas struck at the meagre Mobile Infantry security detail and in the ensuing chaos many lives were lost; this day came to be known as the Sandbleak Massacre in which 40 innocent people were killed including Martin and Julie Blake with their eldest child Nina being declared missing. Kyle Blake as he was then was taken in by Yancy Greer, his affiliations then unknown but whom was also a Citizen of the Federation with a Naval Service Record, Greer raised the boy in a hostile live and let die environment within the Urilla Guerrillas in which drug abuse, trafficking and violence was an everyday occurrence. And during his childhood Kyle was often arrested for juvenile acts of theft, violence and vandalism, taught to steal, taught to fight the boy's life was not easy but it hardened him. An event of note was when a turf war erupted between the Urilla Guerrillas and their rivals Blake was cut from left brow to left cheek by a knife wielded by an older man who was then killed by Greer who instead of helping the boy to his feet broke his ribs. The environment was toxic and lethal but Kyle Blake survived it, he was also aware it was not a life worth living and sought to escape it. Enlightened by his last arrest by the Federal Armed Services in his interrogation Blake was promised immunity in exchange for the names and hideouts of the Urilla Guerrillas leaders. Which he obliged and to the surprise of everyone was let go for the trouble. Yancy Greer has been a wanted man on the run ever since 2295. With his freedom Kyle would find work briefly on the trade routes that had been established with the resurgence of Terra, it was the wild west of mercantile dealings and in truth was little better than smuggling and piracy. Kyle was locked into this life via blackmail and carried on as his employers wished, learning to helm a freighter and space walk while being subjected to more and more violence. Different to the times in the gangs of Tango Urilla only in that the battles were fought in space and on space stations, Kyle once again urged himself to escape this life and with his only anchor being the knowledge of the boss he worked for that would condemn him were it released he would kill the man in his sleep, not his first homicide ergo the blackmail and turn the freighter and it's contents in to the Federation once again in exchange for immunity, but this one came with another condition. Kyle had shown wit, survivability and to a lesser extend loyalty. He was a survivor and in exchange for his freedom he was to Enlist into Federal Service to serve a term, the Federation always has need of men and why waste a resource? Was the reasoning of Master Sergeant Bernice Gallagher - 34th Moritas, Tango Urilla Garrison. Once again his freedom conditional on the whims of someone with material to his misconduct Kyle requested a legal change of identity to show his commitment to the deal; from this was born Steven Hartcourt Mobile Infantry Recruit. Hobbies: - Dune Boarding (Probably a half decent snow boarder) - Card Games Occupations: - Freighter Pilot and Gunner Characteristics: -Jack-the-Lad -Champion of the Downtrodden -Wise-Guy -Slow to Trust -Believes in a Class Divide -Social Drinker Strengths & Weaknesses: Strengths; -Physically Strong, - Resistant to Illness, - Adapted to harsher arid climates | Weaknesses; -Mentally Average, -Not agile, -Vulnerable to Psychological and Psi-Attacks as a result of mental trauma Other Information: Extensive Juvenile Criminal record, no convictions, several arrests. Bio-Tech Prosthetic(s): Personal Relationships Key: Name - [Professional Relationship/Social Relationship] - Comment Aaron Holtz - [Trusted Superior/Admired] - Known as the "Dad of the MI" it began as me following a joke, but looking back on it Holtz really is a bit of a father figure despite how young he is, literally a few years older than me and that's it. I was always told that the Mobile Infantry would age a man beyond his years mentally, and that pretty much holds true. We have a laugh at each other's expense on the regular, he's stoic, professional but he also cares enough to ask you in a group how you're feeling. I wonder how our professional relationship will change now he's given me a shot at squad command. Well, I won't let him down. Jackie Knoxx - [Professional Superior/Acquaintance] - We haven't had much cause to speak about anything that wasn't small talk, but Knoxx is one of the more recognisable field leaders I've served under on several occasions and even alongside. She's a reasonable sort but quite reserved and quiet, she either has a lot on her mind or nothing much to say but that in itself lends a measure of respectability. Weston MacDonnel - [Comrade/Friendly] - Haven't seen him in a hot minute, but I checked the memorial and he's not on there which means it's just been ill fortune that we haven't crossed paths recently. Mac is a funny guy and a real good conversationalist, and he's such a surfer dude. I called him a nark the other day and his reaction was priceless. Hecle Phan - [Trusted Comrade/Friendly] - So he's basically the ship celebrity these days, I've remarked in the past how he's much better at the social thing than I am and welp! Seems to have paid off for him, he's got a gaggle of pals who care about him, he's getting wounded a lot these days so I hope he learns from it, losing Phan would break a lot of hearts...If it comes down to it; I'll put myself in the way of that killing blow. Gwendolyn Reece - [Professional Comrade/Interested] - Reece isn't one of the people I've talked too since I first got here, we first met when Holtz began his spree of taunting me, it's okay he loves all of his children equally. Reece is one of those who is in on the gag and calls me the "Disappointing Middle Child". In all seriousness though I like being around her, we come from similar backgrounds being kids of desert colonies and when it came to being deployed to Kredia where there was snow I think we bonded a little deeper than I have with others. I'd call us friends, as for anything else...well, pretty sure it's one sided. Greg - [Indebted/Friendly] - The big guy, I call him Mongo as an homage to a very old western parody. He's big, strong, fierce and yet is as gentle as a puppy so long as you aren't acting on the side of moral bad. I've had a few encounters with him where he's bruised me by accident and he's one of the few people I will never tell about my past. I get the impression he'd never look at me the same way again. But according to the reports, he carried my useless ass through the city subway system while I hung off of him like a limp prick. I have no memory of it, but I heard I wasn't his only burden, he kept up the fight while holding us. The man probably saved my life, so I owe him one. Oakwood - [Trusted Comrade/Friendly] - Oakey is one of the first people I've properly commanded in battle, he's responsive and cool headed. Always seems to pop up in life when you least expect it, he's a good sort and recently lost his leg to a tanker. I wasn't there for it but apparently Asper is going to pull some strings for him, a lonely Private, to get on the bio-tect waiting list. He's a good trooper, valuable even and a decent pal at that. He's all smiles despite his loss, gotta admire that. Grace Corbin - [Departed/Liked] - Corbin was great, I use the past tense because she appears to have departed. We never spoke on-the-level that much except for a brief stint after Operation DMW where I thought I had gotten bitten by an infected child but I know her well by reputation enough to know that many of the crew will miss her. She always had a certain aura about her, she was someone you wanted to approach and talk too, for a Medic you'd hope that were the standard however I have no drive to approach Miller and Leeds with anything, Corbin however different story, and whatever shit she was dealing with on a personal level...perhaps I ought to have reached out as the plain speaking uninvolved colleague, I dunno. I hope she comes back, but FedNet crucified the 112th over the RnR on Iksander and the citizens will want a scape goat. I wish her all the best, and like I said hope she finds her way back soon. There are a lot of people who rely on her to be their bedrock. Jane Evans - [Professional Superior/Stranger] How can a bloke be expected to not like the one who praises him? Apparently my actions on my third drop were enough for a promotion and a literal pat on the back from the boss-lady. She knows how to relax too which are additional points in her favour. Reckon she'll be a rank climber. Chips Dubbo - [Comrade/Friendly] - A cuter model of a grunt pool resident like myself, we've talked, laughed and shared some tense silences. Might be my imagination but I sense sparks. Davenport - [Comrade/Friendly] - Recent acquaintance but we're already racking out the banter, I reckon we'll be firm friends. Cait Donovan - [Trusted Comrade/Acquaintance] - Engineer, charming accent and wacky from front to back-y. Hat trick. Did a stint with her in a squad for a time she'll be the first to whip out that M55 of hers, even saved the squad from a crumbling building with her quick witted decision to get us a rappel line from the roof of a crumbling building. Can't much dislike anyone for savin' ya now can you? Jeremy Hawkins - [Comrade/Liked] - When I first met Hawkins all he did was spit shade at me, honestly thought I'd grow tired of him and clock him, but I restrained myself and I can see now he doesn't have an angle on me, he's just a fun lover. We got locked in the freezer together and that was a bonding moment, naturally he had to rip on me for losing my arm, he's a decent sort, fought with him a couple times but I can't really give more than; he's not as bad as I thought he would be. Ajax Drivas - [Comrade/Friendly] -One of the Marauders, definitely the one I've seen most in both the on-duty and off-duty theatres. He seems calm, collected and he loves his military hardware. Pretty enclosed though and I prefer those who are more open. We've all got scars big guy, but if they ain't crippling you they ain't worth living for. Erhart Von Strattman - [Indebted/Liked] - The man who saved my life if my chart is correct, patched me up when my prospects were low and I have to assume he asked Greg to carry me. I've never been hit that bad before but having a talented guy like Erhart on medical's payroll makes me feel more at ease. I owe him my life, and my right arm, he literally put me back together and I'll never forget it. He's a bit deceptive on the eyes, you might think he's a woman at first glance, but, well, the proportions are all wrong. He's a good 'un and will want for nothing from me. Seamus Leeds - [So-So Comrade/Acquaintance] - Guys called Leeds are bad juju around here, I'm not entirely sure whether it's the same guy but if it is; he's managed to shoot a civilian, nearly kill himself drinking and misdiagnosed Davenport as having been given bad CPR. And he's a Medic you say? Well damn, the bugs better watch out. In the field Leeds is...something of a half and half, while he's improved he still has the special awareness of a house fly at times. He can get better though. Alessandro Noveillo - [Comrade/Acquaintance] - Seen a bit of this guy with Oakwood so I have to assume he's good people, an engineer too so I would wager it's more than just a hamster in an endless loop upstairs. Given he's pals with Oakwood I should take the time to get to know him, can't be all bad given the company he keeps. Aaron Carter - [So-So Superior/Acquaintance] I've never known a more enthusiastic second in command, even if he ain't elected to the position he'll jump on in I can't say I like the kind of rank chasing he does. He wants so bad for Corporal it's more like lust. Okazaki - [Trusted Superior/Acquaintance] - A Sergeant that fills in the line without much to his credit, don't know him off the field well enough to give a proper opinion. Garro - [Deceased] - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
