The Darling Crew / Barnaby Goodweather
« on: October 09, 2018, 04:13:49 PM »
Barnaby Goodweather

Age:  53
Gender:  Male

Primary Occupation:  Captain of the Transport Ship “The Darling”
Secondary Occupation (optional):  Smuggler
Equipment:  When off of his ship, Barnaby carries with him a travel satchel with short range coms to the ship, coretx reader, and personal, paper journal. His sidearm of choice, which he wears cross holstered, is an old Webley mk. IX, modified from its original design with a custom grip. Everything else he needs is on his ship, and he doesn’t leave it often.

Appearance:  Tall and barrel chested, Barnaby has an imposing silhouette, But then you see that “aw shucks” grin, kind blue eyes, and a face creased with laughter lines and you realize that he’s more teddy than grizzly. His clothing is simple and practical, though with his wide brimmed, tan felt hat and neck kerchief, he accidentally strikes a dapper figure. Wild curly hair and a generally clean shaven face completes his look, though he’s been known to grow a beard or mustache when the fancy strikes him.
Faceclaim:  John C. Reilly

Initial Personality:  Barnaby is a good natured fella with a heart of gold and a pragmatic way of looking at the world. He’s quick with a smile and a helping hand and can seem like an easily manipulatable rube, but he just likes leading a simple life without grudges. “Enemies ain’t profitable.” As his pappy was fond of saying.
Underlying Personality:  His benevolent disposition aside, Barnaby is a cunning businessman who knows every in and out of the ‘verse. He doesn’t suffer fools or braggarts, and is fiercely loyal to those that have earned his trust. But there’s no deep dark secret in his heart, which he wears openly on his sleeve. Barnaby is a good man who aims to take care of he and his by any means necessary.

Known History: 
Born: 2465 on board the ship Darling Francine (commonly referred to as The Darling)
Parents: Jeremiah and Francine Goodweather (both deceased)
Siblings: Ignacious “Nate” Goodweather (MIA War of Unification, presumed dead.)
Spouses:
-Anna-Maria Goodweather (née Iglesias) (Deceased)
-Tamara Erasmus (Divorced)
-Autumn Crocus (Annulled, assumed pseudonym)
-Geraldine Potter (Falsified, never legally married)
Academic records: none
Occupational records: Listed as crew hand on The Darling Francine since 2466. Took over as Acting Captain in 2499. Ownership was transferred to his name in 2510.
Military Records: His ship was commandeered periodically by Alliance forces to assist in supply runs.
Criminal Record:
-2490 Darling Francine and all crew was held by Alliance blockade and charged with illegal smuggling. Charges were dropped.
-2499 Darling Francine was briefly impounded after an extended altercation that included the members of two other ships, 八十八 (the 88) and The Vaquero, both of which were indicted, and Alliance vessel IAV Lancaster. Darling Francine was listed as a bystander and released.
-2511 Captain Goodweather was questioned regarding the hedonistic cult Acolytes of Aristuppus, who were wanted in connection to theft and lewd behavior.

 
Other History:  Jeremiah Goodweather saved his money. He worked long and hard on board other men’s ships so he could one day buy his own. There were many pitfalls and false starts, but he never gave up hope. He called this dream freedom and wouldn’t give it up. During this time he met a young lass by the name of Francine, and they quickly and passionately fell in love. Jerry, as he liked his friends to call him, would refer to the week in which he finally got his ship (which he named for his beloved wife) and Francine announced she was pregnant as his Emancipation. His first son, Barnaby, was born early the next year and became The Darling Francine’s first official crew member.

Barnaby grew up with grating beneath his feet, going planetside often but only for short periods of time. His younger brother, Ignacious, was born, economically, ten years after him and once they each got to a certain age, they were fast friends. The Goodweathers were happy, but by no means wealthy. They made ends meet, sometimes literally in that a large portion of their hauling came from passengers going from A to B. As with most vessels of their type, the Darling Francine also did its fair share of smuggling, the legality of which was sometimes questionable but when it came to providing for his family, Jeremiah was never particular.

When Barnaby was nearly twenty years old, he met Anna-Maria. A long time crew member and friend of his father, Jorge Iglesias, brought his wife and daughters on board during one extended furlough on Paquin. The eldest, Anna-Maria, immediately caught his eye and they began courting almost immediately. Married soon after, she joined the crew as much as she joined the family. Tragically, she was killed a year later due to a malfunction in the fuel line. Through a series of incredible circumstances, the engine room was engulfed in flame with her and her father inside, though her efforts saved Barnaby and the rest of the ship.

What resulted was a series of ill-fated attempts to recapture the love that he felt for Anna-Maria, including one con-woman who discovered that owning his own ship didn’t make Barnaby a wealthy man, a federal agent using Barnaby to get close to his fugitive first mate, and one amicable divorce from a hard to know but otherwise lovely woman.

For nearly forty years, Jeremiah captained the Darling Francine and many adventures were had, but in 2499 there was one adventure too many for the old man. Hired to smuggle some goods, the Darling Francine was to deliver these to another ship, The Vaquero. While unloading, another ship, The 88, swooped in to steal the shipment. An extended standoff ensued, with threats, and gunfights, and damage to all of the ships as none of the three would give up. Finally, the conflict attracted the attention of an Alliance cruiser, in which all surviving crew members of each craft were held and questioned. The goods in question were confiscated and, while the Darling Francine was cleared of any wrong doing, despite the illegality of the goods themselves, they missed out on a very important payday.

Jeremiah could take no more. He announced his retirement and gave command of his ship to Barnaby, taking a more advisory position on board. Barnaby, who considered it his birthright, could not have been more excited. He had worked his way up to XO over the previous forty years, and considered himself ready for the challenge. And things were good, for a time.

When the war broke out, Ignacious enlisted. While the rest of the family didn’t want to see him go, he could not be dissuaded. He was listed as Missing in Action and presumed dead several years later. During the war, the Darling Francine, being a ship without any outstanding warrants, was commandeered on several occasions to assist with Alliance supply runs. Barnaby, who didn’t want trouble with the Alliance, agreed each time, and, besides, it was a paying job, no matter how small. One such run, unbeknownst to the ship, was a shipment of chemical agents. One of the cannisters leaked and made the crew very sick. The resulting illness killed both of his parents, who were quite elderly at the time.

Since then, as sole owner and captain of the ship, Barnaby has tried his best to stay out of trouble and do the work that needs doing to keep his boat flying, which he shortened to “The Darling” out of respect for his mother’s passing, but also because “owning and sleeping in a boat with the same name as Ma is just kinda weird.”




Skills and Strengths:  Barnaby knows the Darling backwards and forwards. So he can pilot, mechanic, and crew her better than just about anyone. He’s a sociable guy with a big heart, and his manners never fail him. He’s fair with a gun and in a fight in general, but would rather go the other way if it can be helped.
Weaknesses:  Outside the metal walls of his beloved ship, Barnaby is not nearly as capable as he is in the Black. He calls it his land legs, but there’s something about being dirtside that leaves him a little off (he also met ¾ of his wives with ground beneath his boots, which is a whole thing on its own). Otherwise, his good nature can be easy to trick and he doesn’t hold much in the way of grudges or ambition, so even though a lot of his smuggling is of suspect legality, he makes for a terrible criminal.

The Revenge Crew / Holger Heyerdahl
« on: September 03, 2018, 03:02:06 PM »
Holger Heyerdahl

Age:  39
Gender:  Male

Primary Occupation:  Gunhand
Secondary Occupation (optional):  Bruiser
Equipment:  Aside from his general travel pack containing clothes and necessities, Holger, despite being a former soldier and current mercenary, isn’t too particular about the weapons he uses and wouldn’t consider himself partial to any, nor does he collect them. He currently carries a LaRue Optimized Battle Rifle with a 16 inch barrell and a magpul customized stock. The stock was, of course, custom made for the guy Holger took it off of. He of course has several magazines of ammunition and a few, smaller hand guns.

Appearance:  Big. Really big. Standing at over 6 foot tall and seemingly made from the rock of his homeland, Holger’s most distinguishing characteristic is his vibrant red hair and beard, both kept long and natural. Beneath all of that you will see wild green eyes and and a wild man’s grin. He dresses simply, but well; his childhood of hardships have given him a taste for the finer things.
Faceclaim:  Kristofer Hivju

Initial Personality:  Holger uses his size and wild appearance to intimidate those he meets, but will warm quickly to you if you prove you’re not an imminent threat. He is boastful, crass, fun-loving, and perhaps a tad dim in the way an uneducated man from a backwater planet is.
Underlying Personality:  A hard man to truly know, Holger has had a difficult life. He holds the memories of his past dear, but it has turned him into a man who will push people away with brusqueness and intimidation, and his strange sense of humor many find unsavory. He strongly wishes for a family of his own, and can be perhaps over eager with those of the opposite sex, but is mostly harmless in that regard and his zeal is most likely an overcompensation.

Known History: 
Born: 2480. St. Albans
Parents: Mr. and Mrs. Hans Heyerdahl (occupations listed as unskilled laborers)
Siblings: 8. Hafthor, born 2478. Sigurd, born 2479. Helga, born 2481. Fridtjof, born 2483. Nils, born 2484. Mona, born 2485. Erna, born 2486.
Academic records: None
Occupational Record: No official records but his name comes up on a work order as a driver for a rock quarry on St. Albans in 2597.
Military Record: 2506. Enlisted Independent Faction in Unification War - Infantryman 66th Division. Achieved rank of Corporal.
Criminal Record: 2511. Military prisoner of war.
Arrest Record:
-2515. Drunken Disorderly. Criminal Mischief. Arson. Assault. Resisting Arrest. Grand Theft.
-2516. Drunken Disorderly. Criminal Mischief. Arson. Assault. Resisting Arrest. Grand Theft.
-2517. Drunken Disorderly.
 
Other History:  Born in a large family, Holger learned from an early age that life and the ‘verse are both difficult and one must find joy where they can. He went to work at a young age in a rock quarry to help support his family, earning a minimum wage for back breaking labor.

When the Unification War broke out, he and some of his brothers and sisters enlisted against the wishes of their parents. But they saw a chance for glory and adventure. What they found was misery and defeat.

The siblings were known as The Nords on the battlefield, using their ancient Nordic blood rage they would charge out of the trenches with bare chests and warpaint, causing a distraction for their waiting allies. While it never quite provided for the sort of victory they would hope, it did give them a reputation as crazy and fearless.

After Unification, and a brief stint in a POW Camp, Holger, like most veterans, found the idea of going home impossible. He was no longer the man he was before he left. So he began using the skills he had learned on the battlefield as a way to make ends meet and soon it became more of a calling.

In 2515, however, he and his brothers who had escaped the hell of both their home world and the War, met up for a sort of reunion on Londinium. After a few rounds of drinks, things quickly got out of hand. While no one will admit that they started the fight, Holger would admit that he’s the one who started the fire. Either way, it ended up with the bar burned out from the inside, the light beating of an Londinium Police Officer and theft of his vehicle, and eventual arrest of the whole clan.

In 2516, they did it again.

In 2517, the police were waiting and suffice it to say the Heyerdahls are no longer welcome on Londinium.

Skills and Strengths:  Did we mention that Holger is big? Because he is. His vibrant Nordic blood, size, and temperment make him ideal for the intimidating guy you don’t want to mess with. His military training makes him all the more dangerous. He also knows his way around heavy machinery and a pickaxe from his years in the quarry as a laborer. This leaves him qualified to do a bit of (non-refined, A to B type) piloting, some light mechanicking, and digging a really big hole by hand.
Weaknesses:  Holger is not well educated, and even if he had been afforded the chance, let’s be honest and admit that he wouldn’t have done well. Higher learning never interested him and he doesn’t feel as though he missed out. He is brash, quick to anger, and easy to trick. His size often gets in his way, and when he can’t solve a problem with guns or fists, he is often at a loss for what to do next. Though he has developed a taste for the finer things in life having left his old life behind, he lacks the actual knowledge and sophistication to do those things properly. So things that might otherwise be considered tacky or garish are prized possessions for him.
