Name: Robert Sauls

Age: 24

Species: Human; Cybernetically Augmented

Bio: Sauls was a fighter pilot at one point in his career (though he hasn't mentioned who he fought for), and he's was cybernetically augmented to be one of the best fighter pilots in the galaxy. If asked about his service, he states that he "did what he had to, but had to leave the military", and just drops the conversation. Sauls expanded his knowledge post-military across every vehicle he could, so that he could fly and drive just about anything, as long as he could read the language, though he could still probably just wing it if he really had to.

There's nothing obviously cybernetic about Sauls other than his cybernetic green eyes, and he isn't actually very augmented. His augmentations are located primarily in his brain and eyes, and are designed to lower his reaction time, increase his situational awareness by adding a constant HUD to his eyesight that presents information to him, such as identifying possible threats, and allowing him to magnify his vision a few times. Other than reacting faster and seeing more, Sauls is essentially a baseline human. He performs best when behind controls, but he's been trained to fire pistols and rifles as well.

Name: Moe I. Mason

Age: 4,000,017 Earth years

Species: Scopulan

Bio: Moe is a silicon-based life form from the planet Murexion. Though that may sound frighteningly alien at first, he actually looks just like a large grey boulder with two cyan crystalline eyes. Five feet tall and three feet wide, his rocky "skin" is smooth and rounded with the exact texture of an average stone. He can change color at will, a trait his species evolved in order to camouflage themselves from the vicious eroders, watery liquid predators that bear a remarkable resemblance to rivers. No one is quite sure how he moves, but he doesn't seem to leave any tracks.

Humans have been in contact with the Scopulans for a century, and the rocky creatures have proven worthless in combat so far. Moe's been traveling human space for forty-four years now and got fed up with people denying him entrance into the thrilling life of a military boulder, so he single-handedly designed a pair of cybernetic arms that recognize signals from his unique silicate brain. Journeying to the planet Kton-4 he hoped to land an exciting job, but his ineptitude at handling social interactions with the carbon goo-bags led to a series of bureaucratic errors that recruited him as a chemist: the very job he abandoned back on Murexion. Stationed at a lab a few miles south of the planet's largest city Aquarius, life so far has proven duller than a dormant volcano...until now.

As for personality, other Scopulans consider Moe to be annoyingly hyperactive. Humans find him a tad contemplative, and unnervingly calm when discussing possibly lethal situations. (Friends call him Slow Moe.) He wants nothing more than the excitement of human life, as his species considers raising one's voice in an argument to be an act of war and actual war to be vicious verbal debate. He gets bored easily but can find excitement in the smallest thing - provided it's alien.

Hey a rock! Cool!

Just uh... try not to overplay the rock tropes. Make sure he's a viable character in-game and not just a rock.

Name: Johnny 4-thumbs
Age: 32
Species: Mutant Human
Bio: Like most mutants, Johnny was born on Earth, now an irradiated mess of pollution and death due to humanity's poor treatment of their home. Born with 4 arms, the origin of his second name, and a third eye, Johnny has spent most his time working out and practicing his marksmanship with old fashioned slugthrowers. When a scientific ship landed, Johnny snuck on board to get off of Earth and eventually found himself at a planet known as a crossroads and got himself a job with the team.

Raz.

What?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Or maybe I'm not the one getting it? Or is this a joke RP? We said Star Trek level aliens, meaning no rocks?

Pat gave an OK on it, so I presume its OK Raz.

Name: Kryyzen Tryst

Age: 158 (Roughly 37 in human years)

Species: Draak (lizard men)

Bio: A fierce and lethal warrior, Kryyzen is actually a renegade after having breaking free from prison on his home planet of Drethika. After freeing himself, he immediately went into hiding for a large number of years taking odd mercenary jobs when he could. Most people are actually surprised when they hear of his past, as Kryyzen is actually very outgoing, and seemingly nice. Though those that know him best know that he will indeed smile at you just before he slits your throat.

His scales are a deep blue and his eyes yellow. Whilst he prefers a melee weapon, he is quite proficient with a rifle as well. Though he rarely needs it as he is agile and fast, allowing him to close distances and end people with his bare claws.

(Will add more maybe. Idk. I'm not particularly proud of this bio so don't hate me! I just want to play him and get just a few basics about his personality and abilities.)

This is the first RP we've had in months, I'm not in a position to be picky. :P


**EDIT**
And his post was just fine. As long as the posts in-game are solid you can make a mutant lump of lard with a Napoleon complex for all I care.

OH! Get your first posts in today or so. As soon as that's done (or by tonight) I'll make the next story post.

Name: Andyne Campbenn
Age: 31
Species: Human
Bio: Born in the outer colonies, Andyne was conscripted to the civil war at that crucial time in a young man's early years when he has no clear idea of what he wants in life. Very quickly he fell in love with the inner workings of spaceships and became a naval engineer. When the war was over, and the outer colonies began to dismantle the navy they couldn't afford, Campbenn couldn't face life on a planet, and so flitted between merchant and mercenary crews.

Despite very much being rear echelon, Campbenn knows how to handle a gun. He's had to face off against many boarding parties, be they pirate or inner world, who make the mistake the engines will be an easy target.

Looking great guys! I love the characters so far. We've got a good balance between simplicity and workability.

We got a nice crew of pretty regular (and sometimes rocklike) dudes. Can't complain about that. ;)

I'm looking forward to this! :D :D


**EDIT**
OH! We're still open for new players. I'll hold off on hardcore story advancement until tomorrow. We can just dick around with introductions and stuff for now.

Noticed this and thought I might as well jump in here. Looks like fun.

Name: Otto Alvaren
Age: 54
Species: Human
Bio: Otto's story is a life of mediocrity. B and C average student through school, played high school football as a linebacker but never managed to amount to anything amazing. He didn't go to college, but instead worked at a mechanics shop for several years out of school. He joined the military for a short stint and served out his tour. Later he was a salesmen. One of his old bosses had described him as a "Crappy Renaissance Man," which turned out to be pretty accurate.

Eventually Otto wound up joining the mercenary group where he's been at work for almost 10 years, a record for him. He likes working with the ever-changing crew, and is a general go to guy given his wide area of expertise. His laid back demeanor normally puts him on pretty good terms with his teammates.
