    First Name: Jayson

    Last Name: Davis

    Nickname: Jackpot

    D.O.B: 16/05/1985

    Occupation Application: Pilot (Troop Transport or Air Superiority Fighter)

    Biographical Synopsis: Quickly making a name for himself in Cadet Training, Jayson Davis qualified as a Flight Lieutenant in the R.A.F, incredibly rare for someone fresh out of training but it was well earned, In his first week in training he spent almost 40 hours of his spare time in training simulations. By the end of his first year several of his trainers made comments to superiors that "this kid is arguably better than half the people teaching him" however unfortunately for Jayson a badly thought out comment in front of the Chief of the Air Staff regarding one of his trainers ("With all due respect sir, instructor Dickson is an ass. ... ... I'm sorry did I say that out loud?") spoilt any chance for advancement to specialist training. Luckily for the newly qualified pilot, a Commander at R.A.F Humberside noted his natural proficiency at piloting and instead of a dishonorable discharge for disrespectful conduct, Jayson was merely transferred.

    With more than 1000 hours mission flight time in his placement at R.A.F Humberside, he is highly experienced for his young age.

    Note from previous Commanding Officer: Flight Lieutenant Davis may not have a exemplary service record; despite his seriousness when in the cockpit, complaints about his attitude towards superior officers seem to cross my desk more often than not and if there were a medal for technicians worst nightmare, it would be named after him. However there isn't a pilot I would rather have under my command, if it wasn't for his piloting skills I daresay he wouldn't get away with half the comments he comes out with. Popular with his fellow troops, he will be an excellent addition to any base, as long as the Commander doesn't mind putting the kid gloves on and ignoring a bit of sarcasm.

    Note from previous Head Technician: If I see one more branch, more like a entire bloody tree last time, stuck in an engine manifold because of some insane stunt the Lieutenant thought would be a safer approach to an LZ than protocol, HE can spend all night removing the damn thing because I'm sick of it. I don't care how effective the stunts are, we have protocols for a reason.

    Pledge: "Well... this is a cliche. What, did 'We welcome our Alien Overlords' not work? Fine fine..."

    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 his oath, I realize, I may ultimately lose something while defending the planetary systems. My life."

    First name: Spike
    Last name: Bookerman
    Gender: Male
    Age: 20
    Biography: As a young man, I enjoyed spending time sitting around, doing nothing. Everyday, I would always go to the mall and just sit there, watching the people go by. One day, a terrorist burst into the mall and through a grenade towards the crowd of people. By sheer coincidence, the grenade landed right by my feet. Without thinking, I kicked it in a reflex action. It flew right back to the terrorist, and he was the only one who got blown up. Immediately after, the military started bothering me to join up. I didn't think that I would like it, but I wasn't doing anything else with my life, so I went. On my first mission, we were sent off the coast of Somalia to kill some pirates. I was sent up to the conning tower to scout, while the rest of my squad moved across the deck. Suddenly, a dozen pirates burst from below decks and surrounded them. However, they hadn't seen me; this was a chance to really earn name for myself. I aimed for the pirate leader, ready to take him out with a shot to the heart. However, a bug flew in my eye, and I accidentally shot some fuel canisters. The entire front of the ship blew up, and we started to go down. Luckily, our helicopter appeared, and we managed to escape whilst the pirates were fleeing towards the lifeboats. It turned out, the others thought that I had shot the canisters and sunk the ship on purpose, and so I was recommended for X-Com by my superior officer. I have no idea what X-Com is, but this pledge leads me to believe that whoever is running this thing is quite the drama queen.

    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 his oath, I realize, I may ultimately lose something while defending the planetary system: My life.

    First Name: Bread

    Last Name: Cornbeef
    Gender: male

    Biographical Synopsis: I am Bread Cornbeef, from Canada, I was at one point a telephone sanitizer but soon after decided I wanted to fly things for a living. I worked for a commercial airline for 2 years then joined the Royal Canadian Air Force. I was at the top of my class during training and learned to be a highly efficient and skilled fighter pilot. When the X-COM project was activated I thought I might be useful so I applied. When I was in grade school I was made fun of because of my name, I was named Bread Cornbeef because my parents were high at the time of my birth. I was planning on changing it when I could but when I was just about to I decided that it was a name that would be remembered, so I kept it. I am somewhat mentally unstable but it never got in the way very much, every so often I have hallucinations though.

    First Name: Antonio
    Last Name: Souza

    Gender: Male
    Biographical Synopsis: Antonio started his life in a rough. As a kid, he had his family, and that is all. No friends, no teacher, no school. His parents decided to go live in the woods, on a small cabin, away from all the civilization, but they never really told Antonio why. Food wasn't for sale in shelves, but running around in the wild, and needed to be shot. he got his hands on a solid but ordinary bow as soon as he was able to navigate in the forests, and when he completed 16, his father gave him a nice rifle. Antonio didn't care what tipe it was, nor its origin, and he learned how to use it in no time, like it was natural for him. But that wild life wasn't for him, he couldn't stay there, his sanity wouldn't hold together. And so, at his 18 years, he joined the army. Devoted to his love with firearms, Antonio looked like a veteran. Any gun that was given to him was immediatelly used with proficient movements, and nobody around could match his aim, even if he didn't really talk enough to brag about it. Although, he was still missing something, a porpuse, beyond mindlesslly shooting targets. Action. Something to build up towards, a direction. At least, somebody to tell him what to do.

    And then, after 10 years of training,at the top of his physical condition, the sky fell, and the world was chaos. The army was about to make a move, but then, Antonio was called to what would change his life. And give him what he seeked for his entire life. A porpuse. Defend the earth. And so, without a second thought, he joined XCOM.

    First Name: Abigail
    Last Name: Rortan
    Gender: Female
    D.O.B: 13/7/1991
    Height: 5' 9"
    Nationality:
    British
    Race: Caucasian
    Hair: Long and black

    Biographical Synopsis: Born and raised in the quiet village of Addingham in West Yorkshire there was nothing particularly distinguishing about Abigail in early life. Her family had a distinct lack of military history besides her great granddads combat experience in the second world war and there was little to suggest she would ever become involved in the military as she grew older. Average grades and an average lifestyle followed her through her secondary school and sixth form years. Ending her last year of sixth form she was accepted into the University of Reading studying a dual honours degree consisting of Psychology and French. It was during her university years however that she began developing the aptitude that caused the armed forces to take notice. Upon joining university she began taking a strong interest in both martial arts and clay pigeon shooting attending these social groups as often as she could building a strong reputation amongst her friends for being ruthlessly efficient in winning martial art events and her pin point accuracy in shooting. The military finally took notice in her when a recruitment officer attended by chance a shooting competition she was involved in. Immediately spotting her potential he offered her an opportunity to peruse further training to improve her skills. She never looked back from this and before she new it she was enlisted as a British regular and ship out to her first posting.

    The first year of service she distinguished herself multiple times in intense combat situations in the middle east combating insurgents. During a vicious night fight in which her squad was sent to destroy an enemy weapons stash her commanding officer Sergeant Clive Stanley was K.I.A. Instead of panicking like the more junior members of her squad she rose to the task of leading them to finish their mission rallying the demoralised members of her squad and after a close quarters fire fight succeeded in destroying her objective. For this she earned the rank of lance corporal, was awarded the Victoria Cross and was successfully admitted to SAS training (eventually gaining admittance) after her leadership and combat capabilities were recognised from the mission. For the next 3-4 years she served globally from terrorist threats in Uruguay to covert sabotage missions in Afghanistan. Her reputation continued to grow as a soldier of dedication and exceptional capability with multiple commendations earned in missions and earning herself the nick name 'Hells Angel' for her preference of air drops, head on combat attitude and the lack of any serious combat wounds. The final distinction in the SAS came in the for eliminating a high priority terrorist leader in Columbia. Things went sour and her team was wiped when their position was compromised. Despite calls for a mission abortion she used the last of her resolved and the want of revenge for the death of her close comrades and friends she followed the terrorist engaging in a brutal battle resulting the elimination of her target but at high civilian cost. Afterwards she took leave on the grounds of psychological trauma of which she could apply her psychology studies to fortunately curing the worst of it but not returning to active duty in the SAS because of her strong ties there. Meanwhile noting her exceptional abilities in the field and her adaptive capabilities her file was submitted by her commanding officers to the Xcom project and is currently awaiting approval.

    Her last mission with the SAS has created some lasting psychological damage in the form fear of losing those closest to her due to her squads wipeout in which she lost her closest friends. She's become a fairly solitary individual keeping to herself using a rough persona to deter others from getting too close to her. For this reason she has had little in the way of anyway form of sexual relationship and few close friends since her leave of the SAS. Despite all this she is willing to make the effort to overcome the rest of her issues aware teamwork and knowing each other could very well be the key to success. Knowing little about what the Xcom project involves has undeterred her and she is excited to do her part no matter what Xcom throws at her.


    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.

    First Name: James
    Last Name: Nightingale
    NickName: Enigma
    Gender: Male
    Age: 27

    Biographical Synopsis: James is alone. His real name if you could get it out of him was James... And that was it. No one really knows his last name. Any family of his is dead or left a long, long time ago. James came from a family were the men had 2 choices, work on the family ranch or join the military. James decided to do both.

    James
    was born and raised in southern England but would not distinguish where precisely. Whenever you got James to talk about his younger life he would always describe listening to the birds chirp at night, especially his favorite, the Nightingale. It was also the only time he would smile. After high school and James got his diploma at the age of 19, James worked the ranch until the age of 20. During that time James learned how to fly and to use a rifle and he was a decent shot. When he was 21 he signed up and a few months later he was in boot camp. He learned how to use anything from rifles to LMGs and heavy armaments such as grenades and rockets. He also was taught basic first aid and environmental survival tactics. When boot camp finished he was shipped out to protect oil rigs in the Middle East. Two weeks after James's 22nd birthday, both his brothers were shot and killed in action.

    James was discharged and he fell into a pit of depression and drinking. 5 years later when James was 27 and at the high of his downfall, James was approached by a man who offered James a way out. James hesitantly and reluctantly accepted and tries to turn around his once hollow existence. He abandons his last name, taking the name of Nightingale, the nocturnal bird he would listen to at night in England and wanted to start a new life, whatever that may cost or mean.

    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.

    First name: Copper
    Last name: Hades
    Gender: Male
    Age: 28
    Height: 5'8"
    Weight: 230
    Hair: steel
    eyes: brown
    D.O.B: approximately May 30
    P.O.B: Russia
    Immediate family: One unknown American soldier (As seen in DNA tests we have no record of who) and a women named Mariya Hades
    Biographical Synopsis: We found him in a prison in the middle east. He was nothing special just a gun for hire although he has pulled off some assassinations that were thought to be impossible and has overcome some of the hardest escort missions known. We have a report from a rich middle east family that hired him and a group of other mercs for protection. He was just one man in a group of 50 massion guards but somehow was able to ward off 300 attackers. When asked about it he gave this report. "This was a big risk job from the start, the family didn't want to leave the house and there belongings unless the commander deemed it 'absolutely necessary.'
    We were in a valley in one of the few livable mountain ranges. The pay was going to be over 10 million so I thought I would give it a shot, but as soon as I met the commander and looked him in the eye I knew we had no chance of making it if attacked. Not only did he think the threat was not real but he also kept everyone so spread out that we couldn't even see each other. Thats when a sniper bullet ripped through his skull, I saw the second in command panic standing stiff as a board by the window the bullet just went through. I jumped on him saving his life from the next round that came through." The man in black asked "Why did you save him?" "Because I needed him, nothing more nothing less. I got us behind cover and got him to order the rest of his men to gather at the underground exit. Once he calmed down he tried to get everyone to go in. I blocked the way knowing it was suicide. If we went down there they would use explosives to block us in, if we stayed there they would gun us down. I ordered him to send the family and 5 of his best guys though the tunnel, the rest and I would stay to make it look like the we had no way out. We took cover at the windows and blind fired keeping them busy. Thats when they pulled out the penetrator ammo, it tore through the walls like they were paper killing all but me and 8 others. As they reloaded we used the bodies of our dead comrades as meat shields. When the firing stopped I ordered everyone to hide, some took shelter under beds or couches, I took up under the stairs. When the enemy came in we were deadly quiet, not a breath or drop of blood left our bodies unless I gave the order. We took them out two at a time, when the first enemy spotted us killing his friend we opened fire, They were so scared of the ambush they ordered all of the troops outside to come into the mansion the finish us off. We held out in the kitchen and when we ran out of ammo I set fire to the curtains, cloth, fabric and anything else I could get my hands on. With the blood of our fallen on us we dropped our weapons and ran killing any that stood in our way. We jumped out the window and made it to safety where I activated the explosives I had placed when I first arrived." The man in the suit wondered how he could have known to do that. "Why did you break orders at the start of the mission, even if it helped in the end that will get you in trouble if you decide to join us." A knife slammed into the table between the agents fingers. "Lets get one thing straight you came to me! How do you know I even want to join whatever you are offering?" After they both calmed down he responded. "You will be granted freedom I think that is enough." Hades begins laughing. "Freedom to what? Some place I haven't killed people in? Thats impossible. I want pardons on ALL my past crimes, even the ones the you don't know about yet." "Thats a tall order" "Not compared to what I am enlisting for. If this commander tells me to eat C4 as lunch I have to do it, I don't even know what the mission is!" The agent smiles. He had hades right where he wanted him "Well there is always going back to tunneling out of that hole we found you in." Hades frowns "The only way I will sing is if you accept my terms." It was a stalemate, neither were willing to be the one to back down. It was the agent who cracked and broke the silence. "What other experience have you had in the field. The report you we have is awfully short." "If I tell you then you have to agree to my terms. If so I will not only sing but be willing to keep quiet after the mission is over, I am good at keeping secrets" He leans in and whispers* "Agent Clark" The agent stands up and pulls a pistol on the man. "Knowing that is a threat to national security, I could have you killed for it." Hades laughs. "Then you will never know how I found out, you will have a leak that someone else could exploit and harm your whole system with. Hire me and I will tell you where it is." "Deal" As he left the room he went and got everything settled, he sat down in his office and thought about what could of happened had he not taken the deal. His family and his whole life could have been ruined. "This guy better be worth it"

Being constantly harassed by bullies and finding no help from adults he took it upon himself to deal with the bullies. This led to three years at the New Hope boarding school and a scar on his shoulder that has never quite healed.

    File of
    First Name: Alecos
    Last Name: Stratos
    Nickname: Kryptes
    Gender: Male
    DOB: 5/4/1990
    POB: Mystras Greece
    Date of enlistment: 4/6/2007
    Military Unit: 575th Marine Battalion; 32nd Marines Brigade, Hellenic Army
    Previous rank: OR-8 Archilochias ( US equivalent: Master Sergeant )
    Marital Status: Single
    Tatoos: a Lambda Emblazoned shield with emblem and motif of the 32nd Marines with a Corinthian Helmet
    Place Of residence before XCOM: Volos Base Thessaly, Greece
    Height and weight(Customary units): 6'5 inches, 225 lbs

    Bio: Born in 1990 to a middle class family with proud military tradition dating back to the war for independence in 1821. Stratos knew it was his goal in life to proudly join the Hellenic Army. Although not the best well funded or trained military in europe it was the leading region of NATO's Balkan Battle Group. Stratos Joined and served a tour in Iraq with the Hellenic Regulars before being transfered to the elite 32nd Marines SOF. In the 32nd he served an astounding 7 more tours in the middle east as a part of joint operations gaining much respect for both US and German Operators. However this highly decorated Operator took a turn for the worst after taking part in Black Operations against supposed "terrorist cells" in Athens during the 2011 riots. After the events his fall from grace was hard earning his way up to the equivalent of Major all the way back town to Master Sergeant for multiple counts of insubordination as well as developing an issue with alcohol abuse . A broken man who lost the will to fight but retains a strong warrior spirit will serve well in the XCOM project. He has shown extreme loyalty to his beliefs and his teammates as well as the willingness to die for his country so why not the human race? He has proven to be an exceptional soldier in all fields due to his training and experience, by no means a super solider or excelling in any one area at the moment his tactical flexibility can place him in any field needed by XCOM where we can Retrain him to efficiently Combat the Alien threat.

    Psych Report: Stratos is an interesting man, While it was hard to get him to talk he seems to have a profound amount of sensitivity to people close to him making him come off as hard and stoic. He has a fear of loss of those around him due to a incident that happend while he was on his 3rd tour in Iraq when he lost his best friend in the squad and his sister back at home. With deceased parents and a Ex who hates him its no wonder why he developed a cold shell around him. He does however form attachments to people quickly so in combat even someone he hates he will quickly risk his life to assist because he dosen't want to lose another person around him. However he is stable and expresses a interest in having something new to live fight and possibly die for.

    Addendum: While he maintains a mostly and quiet and gruff Personality he has a profound fondness for his teammates and an easiness to mix well with others which will be extremely important in an army with the diversity of XCOM however he often is quiet and distant he gets along well with others, however his Pride of being Greek might annoy some, he is quiet stoic figure. He also Works extremely well with German And American Operatives due to his past working and training with them however he does not always work very well with Ex Private Sector as he see's them as amoral "sellswords" who fight without any real cause, pride or dignity.
    Addendum 2: His counts of insubordination while making his record look less then stellar only occurred after the less than ethically questionable treatment of "insurgents" during those sketchy black operations in 2011. However His alcoholism should be manageable with on base regulations.
    From: Xcom Recruiting Station Southeast Europe
    Note From Recruiting Officer: Does anyone find any irony in that he broke down after those Missions against "Terrorists" during the riot even though his nickname is from an ancient Tradition/Agent that did the same kind of things to stop and keep down Helot revolts? Just some food for thought, Dont ever mention it to him though, Nobody likes a 6'5 200 pound Angry greek!

    X-com RP PERSONALITY

    First Name: Michael
    Last Name: Barrett
    Gender: Male
    Nationality: American
    Ethnicity: Irish
    Age: 33
    Physical appearance:
    - Caucasian
    - 6' 1"
    - 275 lbs
    - Black hair
    - Blue eyes
    Immediate Family:
    - Kathryn (wife, age 31)
    - Stephanie (Daughter, age 4)
    Place of residence (pre-XCOM): Washington DC
    Current Rank (United States Army): Lieutenant Colonel

    Biographical Synopsis:
    Born and raised in the Idaho countryside with two other brothers, Michael had a stable childhood. Nothing of great importance happened to him at the early stages of his life. After graduating from high school near the top of his class, he enlisted in West Point (United States Military academy).

    Michael Barrett is a West Point graduate and has served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, all as a sniper. Received a silver star and a single Purple Heart in the line of duty. He met his wife several months after his final tour of duty and married a year and a half later. His current occupation is a desk job at the Pentagon. He is credited for more or less creating most sniper tactics used by the Untied States military today. Wound up being volunteered into joining X-COM supposedly due to his level of expertise in the field. In reality, it was more to do with Pentagon politics more than anything else. In spite not wanting to join X-COM, he is a man of his word and will obey orders. Furthermore, men who have served under his command almost unanimously look to him as a role model. He is generally known for being kind, albeit not incredibly outgoing, and he isn't going to be happy getting shipped off to X-COM against his will.

    Additionaly, he tends to make good friends with other professional soldiers, but doesn't take kindly to former mercenaries or members of militias. As a commanding officer, he has lost several good men to groups that fall under those categories. None of his experience in combat has given him any major or minor psychological damage except for the occasional nightmare. His only physical wound was from an AK-47 round to the left arm, which he has fully recovered from (with the exception of a nasty scar). He obtained this wound on his second tour in Iraq while covering his squad with sniper fire so they could head to an extraction point. Any more details on the operation are classified, but it is known that his actions in that mission earned him both his Silver Star and his Purple Heart.

    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.

    (Personal Addendum: Major General McClellon, you son of a bitch. If you are reading this now, I want you to know if I somehow make it out of this alive I will have your head on a platter.)

    First Name: Daniel
    Last Name: Veilleux
    Nickname: Blank
    Gender: Male
    Nationality: French
    Biographical Synopsis: Veilleux is an excellent and versatile soldier. He has proven himself a capable footman and a clever strategist, as well as having a relatively cool head on his shoulders. He has a clear big-brother syndrome that extends from his demeanor to his tactics as a soldier, which can be both a boon and a curse. However, small squadrons like what the XCOM project aspires to be are where he thrives, and we can find and utilize his potential quickly. Although his experience is mostly as a supportive rifleman, it would be good to wait until he is seen in the field before determining his role.

    First Name: Derrick
    Last Name: Legend
    Nickname: Doc Legend

    Gender: Male
    Biographical Synopsis: Born and raised in Germany, he has seen ruthlessness at its core, he was enrolled in the German Military as an accomplished field medic. He has never killed anyone, but never hesitates to pull the trigger. He was drafted into the United States Military and can handle just about any gun, but prefers to use bows and crossbows more than anything. He suffers from some alcohol abuse, but he is getting sober. He recalls in great detail, "The blood-fest" as he calls it where he claims he was attacked by a horde of furry creatures and fended them off with nothing but a bone saw. Medical records show no evidence of psychological trauma or drug use. He knows little English, but can understand all orders. He claims he thinks recent events might explain some of his past, and he hopes to help in any way he can. He seems to have an unnatural hatred of mushrooms. He says he is willing to die (and mostly kill) for this country. He is an optimist.

    First Name: J
    Last Name: Gambler

    Gender: preferably Male but can also be female (if female please use first name c)
    Biographical Synopsis: When J was 3 years old his parents went missing and they haven't been found since. J always thought that the family he was in was his own but at the age of 14 he found out that that was everything but true. since that point in life he has wanted to go out there into the world. he loved his "family" but since they told him he has cherished the idea of going away on his own just to be free. At the age of 21 just as he was about to leave, to start over and find a new life he was asked to join X-com. at first he hesitated but when they told him they were going to every little corner of the world he was convinced, this was what he had been waiting for. a chance to prove himself and see more of the world than he could desire, ofcourse at the cost of having to deal with those ugly little things they told him about but it would all be worth it right? J never had any real milletary training but he loved to read books watch documentaries about war wich has develloped his tactical insight quite a bit. he also is in great fysical condition beacause one of his friends did a doomsday preping thing and he was quite involved (probably more than he likes to admit). what it all comes down to is that he is quick strong and smart. But there is one thing he hasn't told X-com yet, he doesn't think it will give him any trouble but you never know.
