Contacts

Pao Shen is a gunsmith on Santo. He repairs and customizes weapons, including some the Feds are better off not knowing about. He has a couple of supplier contacts if you need something special. Asian male, late 50's, wears glasses.

Fei Yen Ruiz joined the browncoats when her husband and in-laws were killed on Aphrodite. She ended up in the 57th Overlanders and was one of those who fought to the end. Needless to say, she still doesn't care for Purple Bellies. She has a farm on Hera now. Asian female, early 30's.

Tiago Flores is another former browncoat. He returned home to Regina after the war and ended up becoming a deputy. The sheriff is an old drunk, so Tiago runs the district and has all the sheriff's password and cortex access codes. Hispanic male, mid 30's. Goatee and weathered skin, wears two revolvers in gunfighter holsters.

6’4”, Dark hair, rough features, the sort of guy you don’t want to meet in an alley.

What is your style and attitude? (How do you dress and talk? Are you cultured or rim folk?)

Intimidating

Where do you hail from? (Where were you born? Where did you grow up? What was your childhood and youth like? What does your family think about you?)
Higgins' moon. My family worked as indentured Mudders. I haven’t been able to see my family since the war. I believe they still have fondness for me and hope that I still might be able to rescue them, because I will.

What is your best quality as a person? (And your worst quality? Be honest. It’s not like it’s a job interview or anything.)

Describe your personality in only two words.

Describe your favorite things and your least favorite things (foods, drinks, books, music, assault rifles, etc.)
My rifle is my favorite possession, other than money. They say that you can judge a man by the enemies he makes and the friends that he keeps.

Who is your “nemesis” and who are your allies?
My only goal is to remove Higgins from power by killing him. My allies are those who can move me towards my goal.

Not much.

What offer would be irresistible enough for you to betray your friends and crewmates?
The chance to be in a room alone with Higgins.

My rifle. It helps get you out of jams from time to time.

My ambition is to kill Higgins and free my family and the mudders from slavery.

Where do you picture yourself 20 years from now?
I’m kind of living in the present.

What other kinds of work have you done to pay the bills?
After the war, I did some odd jobs and worked as a guard/bouncer. Worked for awhile as fish tournament security.

What are your political and religious beliefs, if you have any? (Do you have any prejudices?)
I’m no fan of the Alliance.

What were you doing during the Unification War? (How has the war affected you? Did you serve in the war? Which side? Did you lose anyone you cared about in the war?)
I was a browncoat. Without that war I never would have been able to get off that moon.

Do you have any hobbies? (How do you pass the time away?)
Cleaning weapons, staying alert, listening to the music popular with the Mudders. Other music just isn’t quite right.

What event in your life that you did are you the most proud of? Most shameful of?
My choice to join the Independents when they came looking for soldiers. I’m proud to have
gotten off that moon, but ashamed that I left my family behind.

Ambivalent
