Tim Turner's Journey to Becoming a Citizen

Chapter 1: Arrival

He is new to the unit and just trying to do his part and make sure he is squared away. Usually quiet on the ship as he only knows a handful of people. Being from Epsilon Prime, he considers himself a bit of a businessman and is almost always open for trades/purchases. He doesn't spend too much time in the bar and prefers being at the range or in the gym sharpening his skills, preparing for the next drop. He hopes to serve his two years and become a citizen, and return to his home, and his two God-parents who raised him.

 

He grew up in a big city and had a promising life in front of him. His brother runs the family business. He joined the MI to become a citizen, and then go to back to Epsilon Prime to help run the family business, Turner Industries. Eventually, he plans on using the company's money to back a political run. 


Chapter 2: Bootcamp is behind us

Newly promoted to Private First Class, and previously blooded, Turner is into double digits for drops. He’s more experienced, and he knows what he needs to do now. He knows who is who, and he knows who to listen too, and when to be cautious. He’s crash landed, been MEDEVACed, done bug hunts, killed seppies, boarded vessels, extracted civilians and taken a prisoner. Now he’s looking to meet these skinnies everyone’s been talking about. 
 

He’s not against fighting, but now that he’s been around the block he will be more careful picking his next fights, if any. Now that he’s no longer the new guy with something to prove, he’s focusing on his business ventures. He’s made some connections and he is looking to make more. 

 

He sees himself in a lot of the new recruits, and is starting to notice a shift - the people he was new with have all moved up a bit in rank. And some of the NCOs have moved up too. Now, a new class of recruits have taken his old place. A lot of people are indifferent to these new recruits, but with Turner being a replacement himself, he wants to take them under his wing. 

 

Chapter 3: Trial by fire 

     ...after witnessing Crawford get shredded up by Arachnids, who was standing right beside him:

     "Lead is down, HARD. You should take command Rys (2iC at the time)." - Turner, after Crawford was struck down.

     "Advise you appoint a new SiC Rys." - Turner to Rys, after she assumed command of the squad. 

     "Turner, you're it." - LCpl Amanda Rys, on Point Hope during Crawfords final moments. 


   He looked around briefly. He saw a recruit, two privates he’d never met, a private he’d dropped with before, two medics, and the other Private First Class, Sleptz - who’d already been hit. “Shit.” He thought to himself. “I guess I am it.”

 

Those last words from Rys echoed in his head. In such a brief moment, it had gone from a routine drop - where he's watching out for himself and the guy next to him - to his first time being second in command of a squad. Was Crawford really gonna die? The old timer? He was one of those guys you just thought would make it, it didn’t seem possible - but there was no time to think about this. He was no longer just responsible for himself, but now also responsible for helping bring the squad home. And a switch flipped in his head - he didn't even really process what had happened until he got back to the Basilone, it was just automatic. Rys was suppose to be learning how to be an SiC this drop… well now she was our Squad Leader, and I was SiC. Rys is a good soldier, but who wouldn’t be nervous when you’ve got a squad leader who’s never lead a squad? Same went for me as second in command. The squad was getting understandably nervous - and then the shot rang out as they A6ed Crawford. He really was dead. After some silence, the squad started loosing discipline - and I’m not gonna lie, when Rys got hit as well, the squad’s morale was plummeting. Thank fuck she got up. When Rys was down, I was starring down the possibility of having to bring the squad home. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, and when I briefly commanded the squad, I was feeling it. But I couldn’t show it. If I wasn’t holding strong how could I expect the squad to? Was I a bit of a dick as the new SiC? Maybe. But some of the experienced gunners were dipping their toes in the water, seeing how hard Rys would bite if they started barking. I couldn’t allow them to question or doubt our new squad leader at a time like that. She had bigger things to deal with. If I wasn’t fully onboard, who would be? I’d do it again the same way. I had to keep them in line. Eventually, it was time for retrieval, and we’d brought the squad back without any further casualties. I wish it had happened under different circumstances, but I know Rys and I could at least be proud of leading Bravo back to the Basilone relatively unscathed after Crawford bought it. This opportunity was earned in blood, but what will it lead to? It's been a tough week for the Corsairs, lost some  good NCOs... people are moving up the ranks to fill the gaps. Who's gonna step up? These recruits aren't gonna lead us. Turner will do what is asked of him. Now having shared in the loss of friends, and fellow Corsairs, he feels even closer to the unit then he did when he was blooded.

 

On a side note, business is booming. He's working on his project, and it's going well. More on this to follow.
