First Name: Max Last Name: Looper Reason for application to X-COM: My father is a solider and his father before him was too. So naturally I and along with my two older brothers had to become soldiers, as a family of good patriots. My brothers joined to serve their country and make their father proud. I on the other hand joined because I was going through the motion of what was expected of me. Found out I was good a combat and deep down I enjoyed it. I was told I take things too far on mission but I always get the job done. Then again, actions speak louder then words. On one mission being deployed deep in Afghanistan enemy territory, what Intel thought was an terrorist hideout in the abandoned warehouse district turned out to be way worse that I could imagine. After entering the building with my team we found the territorist we were looking for but already dead. The bloody scene looked like they turned on each other. It was only when my guard was down that my world fell into darkness. It felt like someone had ripped into my brain. After the pain and blackness I could only remember flashes of combat, a bug eye creature and my team dying around me. It was only later when I woke up that I realized that my team was dead around me and the unmistakable color of their blood on my hands. It was no surprised I was thrown in jail for the murder of my whole teams. No one believe my story and i was having a hard time believing it as well. It was only when someone from a group call X-COM came to my cell offering me a second chance and finding the truth. 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.
