Reuben Amukama

Recommended Posts





Born to a family of politicians with close ties to Governor Antony Mbeki, the Amukamas were part of the upper echelon on Faraway. Reuben Amukama was 11 years old when the first famine on Faraway broke out, but naturally was unaffected by it aside from witnessing the protests against the politicians, his family included. Seven years later, he was pushed by his parents to earn franchise rights himself to later play part in the politics of Faraway. Having ran through Bootcamp in the outskirts of Sigma City without major incidences, his connected parents later played their cards to have Reuben assigned as part of the garrison force of Faraway as to have him survive his term and become Citizen without having to risk his life on a needless assault on a bug planet.

During his term as Private in the garrison force he was hazed by fellow local enlistedmen for following the ways of the United Citizen Federation. They were primarily part of the poorer populace of Faraway and not nearly as loyal to the UCF as they should be as part of SICON's primary fighting force. This even went so far that the Corporals had him selected for toilet duty on a weekly basis. Against their hopes, he won a local lasertag tournament with his squad and had to be promoted to Lance Corporal due to procedure.

As such, he was later deployed to the inner districts of Sigma City when the second food shortage broke out and the civilian populace revolted against the government of Faraway. He was utterly disgusted by the starving poor people. The commanders of the garrison force who were loyal to Mbeki saw that he carried out orders well, efficiently and without hesitation. It was upon their commendation that he was promoted to Corporal. Deployed as a Corporal to the third civil unrest caused by famine, he ruled his assigned housing block with an iron fist. The commanders of the garrison force commended him for his efficient ration distribution and his efforts to restore order, as opposed to other NCOs who reported assaults near the rationing centres on a daily basis. Thefts and brawls for food rations weren't uncommon in other districts. Such dissidents were not to be found in Amukama's district. Or were ever to be found again, by that matter...

Naturally, the Governor himself would be rather grateful for the rather efficient handling of these matters and designated him as a Colour Sergeant. A group of people especially loyal to the Governor and the UCF, a group of people probably every commander has (such as the order of the crustacean by Brian C. Larsen). It was at this point where the tides had turned and he would not be hazed for his loyalty to the UCF but be rewarded and recognized for it at last.

Once Terra has fallen and the fourth famine broke out, he was promoted to Staff Sergeant to efficiently handle a task group to localize and neutralize leading dissidents of the unrest. As he later unveiled, the fall of Terra and the UCF government caused not only the usual usurpers but also rather opportunistic Farawayans to turn against Antony Mbeki. The assaults were spearheaded by the Civilian Militia who, thanks to the fall of Terra, have just doubled their ranks on Faraway. With supplies coming in from the Black Cross, the majority of the Mobile Infantry garrison on Faraway saw that this was an uphill struggle against an enemy that would outnumber them. In fear of fighting the savages of the Civilian Milita, they rather joined them and betrayed the UCF. Later they made up the Draconian Hegemony's fighting force. With some higher-ups in the Mobile Infantry seeing opportunity to rise even higher, they helped the Civilian Militia to have not only Antony Mbeki, but also his five consuls and the Mobile Infantry command hanged in the streets of Longago. At this point the Draconian Hegemony would be founded and declared anyone who would not fight for them a mutineer.

There are no official records of what happened within the city which was still engulfed in a civil war. Locals report gruesome, day-long fighting, and lots of displayed and gutted corpses in the streets. It was in the outskirts of Faraway where he had been picked up by the 6th Fleet and then recruited back into the MI to teach the 112th Mobile Infantry the proper use of weaponry as a Master Specialist.

Lt. Sebastian Bently - The most boring person ever. If the Infantry rulebook had a dick, he'd probably give it a long and thorough sucking.

James Chevosky - Roses are red, lilies are blue, I am alive, what happened to you?

Lyndsey Carter - Complains when she has to do something and doesn't seem to be very capable all around

Alicia White - Cute but stupid

Travis Young - Sometimes we'd just stand around and stare at eachother. I think it's a lot more passionate from his side, though
