Paul August was born on Callisto the son of a German-speaking soldier and an English accountant. His parents raised him like a feral pig and barely taught him English. The only words of German he learned were “jetzt ein Bier” and “mach mir ein Sandwich!” He idolized the soldiers and guards that were serving at Callisto. He joined the Jupiter Defence Force as soon as he could, enamored with weapons and combat.

Leaving the JDF he tried a mercenary career with Holst’s Ghosts, but bad luck continued to dog him and he lost an arm to a pirate explosive trap.It was replaced by a cybernetic limb.

By the time his cybernetic replacement had been fitted the Company had moved on, and he joined a Mercenary Striker Company ‘Alpha Strike’ for a Junta in South America. He did reasonably well becoming a Sniper Specialist. The collapse of the Government left him without employment however, and a contract on Mars proved to be air and moonshine.

Now he wants to pursue his life to just experience it and figure out what is going to happen next. No promises. No goals.

Freefall Natural: Your Character doesn’t need to Test for basic moves in freefall or microgravity, and gains one free success on another skill used per level of Zero G Skill (including L0)

Powerful/2: +2 to Athletics checks involving Strength

Hard to Kill/2: still alive and unconcious after reaching 0 in all characteristics, for another END hit points

Nightmares: Your character suffers from nightmares, Each morning, make an Endurance check; failure means he suffers a -1 DM to all checks for the first half of his day.

Unlucky/1: Once per session the GM can force you to reroll one dice roll.
