MAJOR MAXELL KENNEDY GRAVES (Ret.)
Player: RUNE

Age: 46

Gender:        Male

Primary Occupation: Gunhand

Secondary Occupation: Commanding Officer

Tertiary Occupation:      Artifact Collector

Earth-That-Was collection; Current crown jewel is a near-mint original printing of Amazing Fantasy #15 sealed in a clear protective case sturdier and more resistant to damage than any of Maxell's own body armor; has a Pollock, but doesn't actually get it and only likes it because it reminds him of the aftermath of a barroom gunfight;

Appearance: Keeps face and head mostly shaven; weathered, leathery skin; Distant, dark gray eyes; wears a pair of spectacles to read; keeps himself in shape as a retired military man; has an Alliance flag tattooed on the biceps area of his left arm;

Faceclaim: Dominic Purcell

Initial Personality: Hard-boiled veteran turned soldier of fortune is more apt to grunt than speak in most situations. Is most loyal to himself, his collection, his arsenal, and his paycheck, in that order. Respects a Captain's place as king or queen of their vessel, but isn't afraid to speak up when his two decades of military experience dictate. Really, really hates it when anyone touches his collection, or the cases he carries most of it in, or asks too many questions about it, or thinks about it too often.

Underlying Personality: Has much deeper appreciation of art and culture than one might expect from a hired gun and can be quite verbose when discussing those topics, but seems disinterested in most other conversation. Specifically refuses to discuss the Unification War. Carries the weight of his actions as a soldier and an officer. Guilt fuels escapist pursuits such as collecting and exploring. Disgusted by the revelation of Miranda and what it meant: there were those in The Alliance that wanted it to become the dominating totalitarian regime the Independents made it out to be, it quietly wiped out an entire world and covered it up, and not only did it create the Reavers but didn't have the stones to clean up its own mess. Very jaded and conflicted with The Alliance having dedicated so much of his own life to its ideals.

Known History: - Born in New Huntsville, Beaumonde to a family of factory workers whose father proudly oversaw the production of Old Earth Style Kentucky Bourbon

- Major, Retired in Union of Allied Planets Marine Corps; enlisted for service wanting to get off of Beaumonde and do something with his life besides losing his pension to a machine; Enlisted in Alliance Marine Corps as an infantry carbiner; educated at a military university where his intial fascination with Earth-That-Was history and artifacts took root;

- Has no known children. Maintained a long term relationship with a Naval Intelligence officer who disappeared into the black during the early days of the Unification War.

- Retired at 42 and took to "exploring". For a time, served as Captain of a Komodo class called Journey Into Mystery, but was soon reminded why he retired from command.


Other History:    Has several skeletons in his closet, which I'd prefer to reveal gradually over time.

Skills and Strengths: Experienced Marksman; Expert in Earth-That-Was history and artifacts; Trained soldier and experienced commander; Novice explorer; avid reader

Weaknesses: Awful pilot, can hardly operate a Mule bike without causing a collision;  Obsessively protective of any artifacts that fall into Maxell's possession, and will even throw down arms in order to protect them; can run low on cash due to impulse spending, particularly as it relates to adding to the collection; the collection itself is a liability, as the massive crates Maxell secures it in make travel complicated

Equipment

Arms (carbines, rifle, crossbow, pistols, explosives, knives, hold outs and punch blades); Combat helmet and armor not unlike what he wore as an enlisted Marine, though not so purple; Then there is the collection itself, with Maxell's crown jewel being a sealed, heavily protected, carbon-dated copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 from Marvel Comics.
The bugle sounds - the charge begins, But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horse's breath, As I plunge on into certain death
