First Name: Curtis Last Name: Barnes Gender: Male Biographical Synopsis: Born 10/26/90, in Florida. Moved around a bit, S.C, N.C, Cali, OK. Got into a military career at seventeen - lied about my age, of course. Ended up getting cert'd to drive anything you put in front of me; VTOL, fighter jet, tank, APC, a damn tricycle if need be. Got pushed up the ranks in Iraq for my long series of operations without casualties, though I can't see why everyone else didn't, too. Seems like the guy who drives the getaway car would get less recognition than the other soldiers, but who'm I to judge? Higher rank means more cash. Got approached by a shady government thing, full MIB, went to work. Made to sign some non disclosure agreements, with some... Interesting clauses about what happens if I talk about it. Written in bold. After I hung with them for a few years, went back to the Middle East for about a month before I got picked up by XCOM. Wonder if I can get cert'd to fly a UFO, heh. Pledge: I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as an elite military soldier, in the X-COM special forces. I am giving myself, unconditionally, to the cause. I do bind myself to conform, in all instances, to such rules and regulations, as set forth by my supreme commander ChristopherOdd. I trust him with my life. And by taking this oath, I realize, I may ultimately lose something while defending the planetary systems. My life.
