Born on Mars in 2524 Paul and his brother James were brought up in the lower residential slums of the capitol. After receiving no education, they decided to embark on a more adventurous career on New Magnitka, working for the mining camps. These were met with serious complications as the prisons that were installed on the same planet were fuelling with revolutionary rage. The two brothers were caught up in the revolutionary movement that swept through the planet like a cancer. During one of the chaos filled riots, James was killed by a furious explosion caused by a suicide bomber, one of the prison revolutionaries. Paul was also gravely wounded in the same incident, but was found by Nano-Trasen officials, and in return for feeding information about the rebels, Paul was offered re-constructive surgery and prosthesis. His eyes, and right limbs were rebuilt and repaired, as well as a new pacemaker assisted heart was transplanted from an anonymous donor.

After the riot war on New Magnitka was over, Paul was sent by Nano-Trasen to the Security Academy, and following proper testing, qualified as a crime scene investigator, and managed to climb to the rank of detective, within the NT security force. His speciality is interrogation and questioning, as well as his intuitive approach to apprehending suspects. He also has displayed effectiveness in active patrol duty and dealing with criminals face to face, showing apt skill in subduing.

Why?:, He has a serious knowledge of corporate guidelines, and is a very capable leader, showing initiative in many situations in the face of adversity.

Please provide well articulated and argumented answers to the following questions.

How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Honestly, my RP is very good. My only downfall is the fact that I read into situations a bit much, as well as my slightly aggressive, hands on approach to Roleplaying. Occasionally I'll display a lack of respect to a few authority figures, but not in a disrespectful way, more in a "too casual" approach.

Hey there!

Don't think I've seen you around too much, but then again, it's hard to keep up with faces these days.

I just wanted to bring up a few pointers pertaining to this:


Right, as we can see at the very bottom of this page here, a number of command staff qualifications are laid out.

Now, I'm noticing two distinct things here that don't really coincide with these minimal requirements, that being your character's age and lack of formal/advanced education.

Obviously, some sort of educational degree is expected of a low-mid level corporate executive; an associate's degree is the required minimum for most big corporations in today's world.

Furthermore, most command staff (Security Chiefs especially) are expected to hold around ten years of work experience, which I'll once more reference back to your character's age.

They are currently 25.

This would mean they started security-related work when they were only 15 years old(!!)

Personally, I feel that the character is in need of a bit of re-working before they should be considered for a command promotion.

Can confirm. I've seen him here before (A loooooong way back.)

Never really interacted with him, but I'm all for more Heads. (Crocodile for HoS)
