    First Name: Buster
    Middle Name: Asakawa
    Last Name: Bradford
    Gender: Male
    Age: 30 (December 24th, 1984)
    Birthplace: Yokota Air Base, Japan
    Origin: Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
    Languages: English (American), Japanese
    Biographical Synopsis: Central Officer Bradford was born on Christmas Eve, 1984 to Technical Sergeant Will Bradford and Suzie Asakawa on Yokota Air Base in Japan. Bradford's father was in charge of handling the American Forces Network (AFN) radio and television station on base in Yokota and due to this posting, Bradford has attended elementary schools in Japan. Shortly after Bradford finished the fifth grade, his father was posted to Honolulu to serve at Hickam Airbase as a radio operator. Bradford transferred to local schools in the area and graduated from Punahou Academy with a 3.1 GPA. He attended the University of Hawaii as a part of the ROTC program and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in both Hawaiian Studies and Management Studies.

    Service Record: With accordance to his father's wishes, Bradford joined the Air Force as a radio operator, returning to Yokota to manage the AFN on base. After three years of serving in Japan, Bradford was transferred to the Green Zone in Iraqi as the Air Force attache at the American Embassy where he served for three years. It was here that Bradford made himself known to the XCOM project by protecting the lives of those in the Embassy while simultaneously ordering troops in the Green Zone to repel a 13-day insurgent attack. Following the Battle of the Green Zone in 2008, Bradford was honored by President Obama in 2010 with a Navy Cross at the White House; the XCOM project quickly makes contact with Bradford during his posting in Kosovo in 2013. Since then, Bradford has been assisting the XCOM project by organizing the XCOM base alongside Dr Shen and prioritizing research with Dr Vahlen.

    Name, First : Joseph
    Name, Last : McRae
    Age : 14
    Gender : Male
    Birthplace : Houston, Texas
    Birthdate : January 22, 1999

    Biographical Synopsis :

    Sir, Joseph is an "unusual" subject. For starters, he's only 14, about to be 15. Second, he has an IQ of 201. And third, Commander, he is a Tactical GENIUS. He has help top-ranking generals and the president himself to plan and coordinate many of the U.S. Forces' Attack Plans Worldwide. Despite his age, he Can outsmart most Tacticans with ease. I would recommend that he be assigned to assist Bradford in mission selection. Much of the background of the subject is unknown, execpt for a birth certificate. The subject was an illegitimate child to general CLASSIFIED and was in an abusive home before relocation to the XCOM Processing Facility in CLASSIFIED.



    Personality Analysis:
    The subject is skittish and nervous much of the time, due to his past living circumstances. The child was aloof and distant most of the session. The boy is humble and respectful, and correcting in a polite manner. He moved in a methodical and almost choreographed manner.



    Final Thoughts:

    Commander, this may be a kid, but he's got the mind of Einstein 7 fold. I would RECCOMEND for the XCOM Project.


    Pledge: I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, Joseph McRae, 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: Alexander
    Last Name: Grace
    Biologogical synopsis: Nothing can be truly said about him. Except for the fact that he had skipped highschool entirely and was sent straight to college. His IQ is beyond that of his teachers, for some odd reason he is just smarter in every way. Born into the world on october 15th, 1992, Newburyport Massachusetts. Had no ill effects of his nature. Brought up well, all but one thing. That ONE thing is what we believe, provoked him to be like this.
    He had a sister, at the age of 10 him and his sister were walking around in the mall, taking in their surroundings. Eventually they had lost themselves in the scenery since this was thier first time. Alex had taken his sister up to strangers asking for help to find their mom and dad. One man eagerly helped and said "perhaps they had went to the parking lot?" Of course Alex was suspicious but he would give anything to be reunited with his family. Next thing he knew he was in the back of the mans car being drove away. He had pleaded that they go back but he wouldn't listen, why would he? They were brought to his house and the man pulled out his phone and took out the phonebook. He asked what his last name was. When he didn't reply, the man struck at his sister. The more the man struck at his sister the more Alex had complied. By the time it was done, the man had contacted his mother, put up a ransom, and had his sister bleeding on the ground. But to add to his cruelty he had made a deal with the young Alex. That if he would correctly answer a string of questions, he'd set them free. Questions like what is the definition of DNA, what word has all vowels in it, what were the tactics of alexander the great, name all the roman gods in order, etc.
    But there was a cost. Either he wins and they leave or the man wins and gets to keep his sister. Perhaps if he had known more, what if he had given the man a false last name? What would of happened if he had simply said NO and waited for his family? How could such a kid know what to do except for what he thought was right?!
    He never saw his sister again. But on that day he had made a vow to become smarter than all so the same mistake will NEVER REPEAT!
    He currently works at MIT as a teacher of physics, chemistry, and knows his way around a machine if need be. He is a scientist always searching for something new, extraordinary, something we as a race have never seen. In 2015 when shit hit the fan he was there to assess the damage, not physically but mentally. Reviewing all so that he knows what it is, and does before he could possibly be brought down by it. I choose this man not so that you can pity him, but so that you have a man who knows personally that there are things in this world that you don't know. A man who has spent his life to get to know these things before they can deal any real harm. A man who will stop at nothing to see his work through.

    Personal traits: he is humble to his superiors but if provoked will humiliate you. He is currently "secretly" searching for his long lost sister. This of course is durring his free time. He enthusiastically works in his office and does over emphasize everything to the point where he believes, and I quote: "A spork is a deadly tool that can sink its three points through your chest and out the other end." I do not blame him for this but it can get annoying from time to time.

    Pledge: I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, Alexander Grace, 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.

    Journal Entry #23:

    For a secret organization, XCOM doesn't seem so keen on keeping their clandestine status. Though I was approached discretely during the MOOT for an opening in the research team, the group interviews revealed that many more than a "select few" were present. Of course, at that point none of us knew of the true nature of the research position, despite the high IQ's boasted by the majority of the applicants. I find such boasting tiresome - if they're so intelligent, do they not know that the whole concept of IQ testing is flawed, and does not reflect capability in research? Valuable skills such as creativity, ingenuity, or, even just sheer perseverance is what you need in research. You do the grunt work, as any starting graduate student will tell you: do your literature review, learn your lab environment, and for God's sake, learn to improvise. That highly inflated IQ - no doubt just mere manifestation of the Flynn Effect - of those smug, self-important applicants does nothing if your spectrometer breaks down and you're left holding the line with technical support. Of course, those smirks disappeared when they were dismissed from individual interviews. Regardless, I've always wondered how much they learned of the operation.

    And now I hear from base security that they found an interloper snooping about the base. Perhaps he was one of the applicants XCOM approached. Rumour is that Command is considering adding him to the team. If he's as talented as everyone thinks he is, it'll be a much needed boost to this constantly understaffed team. The workload Dr Vahlen has us under is nearly unbearable, though I'm no stranger to stress. I've seen my fair share of universities - University of Waterloo, University of Toronto, Queen's University, and University of Southampton: at every single one of them, there's always more work than man, equipment, or time allows. At least here though, we have state-of-the-art spectrometers that doesn't require a probe replacement every month. Hell, I'd be grateful if the liquid nitrogen line didn't leak.

    Well, looks like my sample has finished shimming. Back to work it is.

    Given Name: Jerry
    Last Name: Atrics
    Attached Photo: upload_2013-12-30_21-32-37.png
    Applied Position: Scientist, under Dr Vahlen/ squad psychiatrist
    Personnel File: Under the pretense of a position in an ambitious research project, recruiters sent Dr Atrics an application form asking him to list his name, qualifications, etc. Upon receiving the form back the first thing we noticed was the amount of (if you'll pardon the phrase, Commander) bullshit in it. Previous enrollments in other projects have seen the staff of those projects either loving or hating him by the end, and why was apparent in his returned form. As an example, one of his listings was a tenure at "FU". The entire form was filled with that kind of drivel.

    Since Atrics obviously didn't trust us enough to give us information himself, we were quite ready to write him off. After all, there were a number of potential candidates to go through, and after spending a large amount of resources on the "military staffing", we debated whether we had enough to warrant further investigation. However, every one of the candidates forwarded to us was done so with reason, so we eventually decided to investigate him ourselves. We found a number of things that you may find worthy of consideration.

    Qualifications include multiple degrees in physics, quantum physics, biology, mathematics, and psychiatry. These are just the topic areas, the actual degrees number around a dozen. His scientific ability is unquestioned. He is well recognized among his contemporaries as a genius, but many find him too flippant.

    Jerry Atrics was so named by a father he claims had read Catch 22 too many times, and considers himself lucky in comparison to his sister, Peedee Atrics. He is of African-American heritage, from a family heavily impacted by economic hardship, largely not from any fault of their own. His name and background has made him into a self-proclaimed "optimistic realist", and, as mentioned prior, his personality is very strong, sometimes being somewhat overbearing to others.

    He is qualified as a scientist, but he is also qualified as a psychiatrist, where his personality has helped him to achieve success in this field. Many who go to see him have achieved what they went in to achieve, with the sole exception of one of your previous soldier applicants Isaac Anderson (see relevant file - Incident Log #115; Judge Escape from REDACTED , please note that security clearance Omega is required to view this report.). Atrics has cured many mental illnesses, which some patients attribute to his cheerfulness. His reasoning (and excuse for his one failed case) is that he can only help those who want to be helped.

    No doubt you will have noticed by now my emphasis on his personality. Normally I do not express my own personal opinion, but I feel I must here. When it comes to Dr Atrics, whilst his scientific applications are considerable, I feel his value lies in his ability to relate to others. He could serve as a mollifying force to the science team, even to the military aspect of X-COM should we decide to allow him to practice psychiatry in his off time. Whilst the potential for disruption in the labs is a concern, I believe Atrics could serve well as a "morale boost". His experience with depression and PTSD would be an asset if we decide to assign him squad psychiatrist. His ingenuity could serve us well in testing any tech we recover and applying it for our own use. If he becomes a problem, we can simply ask if he would rather we test these techs on him. Personal recommendation is that risk is well worth reward. After all, all we are risking is a bunch of very irritated scientists. Tell me to my face that you wouldn't like to see Vahlen speak with an emotion other than "for science" for once, even if that emotion is "thoroughly pissed".

    There is, however, one other issue. Atrics is very... ethical. It's entirely conceivable that he would take issue with some of the things we may wish to research in the future. However, I would at this time like to point out that you recruited Dr Shen despite his own ethical concerns. Like I said, risk vs reward. In the end, it's your decision Commander. I am here only to bring these individuals to your attention and to make recommendations.
    Signed: "Smith"
    PS: Atrics has not yet actually signed the pledge, given reservations about actually recruiting him. Should you decide to recruit him, I will forward the signed pledge ASAP.
    PPS: On that note, unsure whether pledge is necessary for scientists and/or engineers. They are not likely to lose their lives "defending the planetary systems" as the soldiers are. Possible area of review.

    Pledge: I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as an elite military soldier (NEEDS REVIEW, ATRICS IS NOT QUALIFIED AS A 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.

    First Name: Timothy
    Last Name: Benoit

    Gender: Male
    Biographical Synopsis:
    Although a bright kid Timothy was a bit lazy when it came to school work, and would of had a nearly perfect grade if not for this fact. He realized in his senior year that there really was no way he could afford college or even get any scholarships due to his laziness. With his prospects limited a friend of his introduced him to a recruiter for the US Navy. After taking the aptitude test (scored a 93) they got Timothy into the nuclear power program.

    Timothy's time in the navy was interesting and not so much at the same time. The technology was easy to understand and he was even given the chemist job on the nuclear reactor on a submarine, the military life was just not for him. Several years later he was found sleeping in a radiation area (really the levels were very low and not dangerous, and mean was he tired. I guess they didn't really like me so much there) and he left the military.

    It was after the military that he found his true calling, but it was years later and we will get to that. Until then though he spent time bouncing around random dead end jobs, and it was while he was at one of these jobs he found his would be wife. The years ticked by and they produced child after child until they were up to 5 total children. It was this stress that pushed Timothy to his true calling.

    In an attempt to get some alone time and find a hobby at the same time Timothy decided to tinker with some stuff in his basement. At first it was a small solar panel, followed by some other solar projects, soon he found he was able to do many things and branched out a little bit into electronics, setting up systems in his house controlled by a raspberry pi. He was even able to patent a few things and make a little money.

    It was at this time that one of his old Navy buddies who had done very well over the years got in touch with him about his new patents. This old friend asked if Timothy would be interested in a new environment where he could take his out of the box thinking to some good use........
    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.

    First Name: Johan
    Last Name: De Fries
    Gender: male
    Biographical Synopsis: Although most reports would describe mister De Fries as an average citizen I believe he is merely acting so he doesn't extract any attention that he doesn't want.
    Documents concerning Mister De Fries's military background are surprisingly well classified, nevertheless I've learned that wherever Dutch commando troops were shipped De Fries followed as "Support Personal" for example he served as a cook in Afghanistan but acquired video surveillance showed that he never prepared a meal in the kitchen. After some digging I've learned that he had of combined "sleeping space" of three containers. When the Dutch army left Camp Holland they left all structures behind except these three containers. The containers were destroyed three days prior to the arrival of the first American soldiers in an "Artillery exercise".

    I am fairly certain that not all intelligence the Dutch army used in Afghanistan came from willing sources, and if you combine this with the rest of De Fries his military history I can say with almost absolute certainty that he worked as the best (and perhaps only) interrogator of the Dutch military. If the Earth ever came under attack by aliens and the X-COM project had to be activated intelligence on the aliens plans might only come through interrogation of these hostile aliens. I strongly suggest that you hire De Fries as chief interrogator, I am certain that he's up to the task.

    To: Commander ChristopherOdd

    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.

    As I said, I'm applying this character to be the chief interrogator (scientist).

    XCOM ENGINEERING//RECRUITMENT PERSONNEL FILES
    First Name: Taliken
    Last Name: Flatliner
    Gender: Male
    Age: 21

    Biographical Synopsis: When XCOM ASIA took a look into his government files, they found the biography of a fairly dedicated engineer working for the ZVEZDA-HOSHI Space Program between Russia and Japan. Went to America for his Undergraduate Degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, graduated a year earlier, formerly worked as part of the technical staff of the ROTOBO Economic and Trade Department. He is skilled and diligent at his job, goes under the radar, is uninterested in relationships(single), and would not be missed greatly if suddenly went missing. Average paycheck, decent standards of living, and lives off fighting against elderly ladies at the supermarket sales for potatoes, etc. Seems like a fairly average profile of a normal civilian worker, until the officer going through his papers found another set of files in his folder, completely redacted in lovely black ink.
    Now this is where his profile gets...strange. Upon re-scanning and recovering his files, is reveals a time-gap in Flatliner's work log, indicating that he was freelancing(and might still be) for a number of people with rather shady affiliations, many of which came from the same organization. At some point, the Russian government caught wind of his jobs, and offered him a deal to work for them, which he took quickly for some reason. What he was working on, as well as a deeper information on his early life, has been conveniently expunged from any major mainframe. Since then, he has been part of a team advancing both Russia and Japan's space capabilities, specifically spacecraft and satellite development and maintenance. Curiously, his activities remain under the radar while working here as well. Of course, until XCOM Asia used their connections to offer a contract to our man, who signed up without much of a second thought. All things considered, he could possibly be a security liability with the skills to back it up, but this could also prove to be an asset as well, if he does his job anyways.
    -Addendum A: Missing Master's Degree
    Strangely enough, in the data we recovered, there was also documented proof of a master's degree in Chemical Engineering. Again, curious, considering that there is nothing that he could have used it for in his line of work, at least as part of a technical development team. Unless he was working with fuel cell or oxygen refining, or maybe a project trying to fuse physical/mechanical sciences with life sciences.​
    -Document #33-1: Psychological Analysis
    Mr. Flatliner has a very amiable personality despite his rather depressing stature. When interviewed, he was surprising accepting and understanding of what was being said and the stakes being held. While not entirely eager to join in, he expressed his desire to help in any way he can if called upon duty. Specifically he said, "While I'm not sure what kind of help you think you can get from me, I won't back down from a call to help, since this is probably the first noble job I've done in while."
    And mind that this is the same person who takes shady freelancing jobs.
    Despite this, he seems to have the uncanny instinct for socializing only when required, and is quite in control of his emotions when presented with personal questions. It appears he has prior knowledge of interrogation methods and procedures, making the interview overall less effective. Despite that, we have determined that while his origins are ambiguous, his willingness to be a working part of XCOM is honest enough. Everything checks out, except for a few incidents of him acting as mediator in resolving office fights, as well as personal reports of him helping others resolve the personal problems of a few select people. He was spoken quite well of by those people, and somehow still manages to stay anonymous.​
    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.

    Hey guys, I've made the following edit to the original post here:

    Edit: 3 spots for Annette's Psy buddies are open too. I've decided against using three of the hand picked recruits.

    Ever since she was 7 Georgia had been fascinated in science. She spent every minute of her free time studying rocks minerals pretty much whatever was at her disposal.(even trying to perform an autopsy on a mouse!) In high school she quickly rose to be top of her class. When high school was over she got a scholarship at the University of Alberta and within 3 years she rose to be the brightest student in the university earning degrees in:Geology, Physiology,Chemistry and Biology.The day the aliens attacked her parents got abducted and pledged to do whatever she could to help destroy them.One day she got asked to apply to the Xcom project. After her loss hearing she would be working with the most brilliant person in the world it almost made her happy.Considering what happened to her parents remembering the pledge she gladly applied to the project.

    Name: Alice"Angel"Smith

    Age: 21

    Hair color : red

    Specialty:unknown


    Alice Smith was taken by the aliens along with CENSORED and CENSORED as they have psychic potential that was unknowingly given to them which caught the aliens and EXALTS attention.
    Little is known about Alice except what she has told us.

    'I served in the army for 2 years after the age of 18 before training to become a field medic to save the lives of the men and women around me in battle as so many were dyeing and the aliens have slaughtered so many innocent around us and I would like to return the favor"

    Recommend assigning Alice Smith to the Field as a Soldier or Base Medical Staff
    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: Samuel

    Last Name: Walker

    Occupation: Engineer

    Bio: Samuel was obsessed with technology when he was born in 1990 but lived very far from it. His parent lived on a farm because they believed the future will poison people's mind. When he was young his father taught him how to build a car and he loved it when it was Christmas he ask his dad for car parts and a frame and built one all by himself. Sometimes he took apart and put back together to just to clean it. He loved that car because he knew it was his only connection to the future however when he turned 18 and graduated from high school valedictorian of his class he went to IT for mechanical engineering which he earned bachelor on and joined the millitary he thought his skill will allow him to repair and build guns and tanks but it led him to do intelligence. However it all. Changed when terrorist attacked his based and enslaved him in a work camp in Africa there he what he wanted, to build weapons of mass destruction. However all his creations were against America. He was forced to build bombs, tanks, and missiles of mass destruction until the US military raided the camp. He quit the military and returned to his family farm so he can be distant from technology like his parents.

    Commanders this bio is what we got from multiple sources he has potential but his disinterest to build any thing goes against
    his job for the inevitable war but through therapy he can be valuable.
    We will stand by and keep tabs on him for future orders.

Reports say on his 14th birthday, his parents were murdered and the boy was found alone covered in blood. At age 17, Exzadius eventually dropped out his senior year to live out on the road meeting new people, learning new skills, eventually meeting an old gruff veteran who went by the name Zachary Taylor from the Vietnam and cold war claiming he saw aliens. Despite his eccentric attitude, the man asked Exzadius to live with him if had no place to go, Exzadius accepted his offer. At age 18, Exzadius decided to finish his senior year at the request of the man, deciding he too wanted to join the military, and eventually graduating at the top of his class. At age 19, Exzadius signed up for the marines, living a hellish lifestyle and rigid training, however his determination to finish at the top of his class transmitted through his military training and had also finished boot camp with top praise.

His squad mates than dubbed him the nickname Dead Man Walking. Age 21, six months ago, during a routine mission along with his squad, Exzadius Kestlar was listed as M.I.A.
    -Commander, i left you with this document just in case you happen to find him. If you do, please allow him to choose whether he would like to enlist or come back home.
    Sincerely
    Zachary Taylor

    Extra Information: An atheist after his parents death, doesn't believe in aliens whatsoever due to his time with Zachary Taylor, loves women but will always treat them as if they are a princess, despite his womanizing ways, always ends with him getting smacked in the face.
    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.
    Creator's Note: I plan on letting Exzadius tell what happens to both his parents and the old man during his time with xcom during his off mission. Also his parents death are not alien or Psi-related. I opted Zachary Taylor to be part of the Bureau before hand but i don't know if that's part of the timeline, so if the Bureau doesn't exist in this universe, Zachary Taylor is just a paranoid man. Also I'm applying for one of Annette's psi-buddies.

    P.S so excited for this series, watched your other series, got excited at your Mass Effect Role play too. I should get more into RPing

    Candidate Personal File
    Name: Jonah McKnight
    Occupation: Engineer
    Age: 36
    Bio:
    Jonah McKnight is a well respected engineer and inventor. Jonah is known for his specific safety procedures. Jonah considers the worst cast senerio for every project he works on. Despite his paranoid personality his curiosity and determination for completion has allowed him to progress through many projects. Here is a recording of incident that shows Jonah's determination for completing his projects.
    "Jonah, the boss said you need to stop this."
    "What!? Why? We've almost discovered the ability for fire projectiles with greater potential."
    "Jonah, the project is unstable! We almost lost half our team because of malfunctions."
    "That's why I organized the safety protocols so we reduce the damage."
    "Are you saying this project is worth more than our lives?"
    "IF IT SAVES THEM! I'd gladly risk my life to save even a single person."
    "Jonah....Please stop this."
    "Give me one day."
    "For what?"
    "To finish this and if I can't I'll stop the project."
    "Fine I'll talk to the boss about it."
    [End Recording]
    The next day Jonah developed a successful prototype for a large weapon that fires heavy rounds at devastating speeds. Jonah is also an experienced self-defense fighter. The only weapon he knows how to use is a pistol and katanna he keeps in his quarters or near his workstation in case of an emergency. Recruiters have assessed the candidate and deem him a possible asset. We hope for Commander Odd's approval to add him to the engineering team. We do however stress that while he is an asset, he should be watched encase of him being a mole for the outside. The decision is yours, Commander.
    Pledge: I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as an engineer, in the X-COM Project. 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 commander, Christopher Odd. I trust him with my life. And by taking this oath, I realize, I may ultimately lose something while defending and arming the planetary systems. My life and my humanity.

    (Im assuming by 'psy buddies' you mean the three psyionics? If so I'm interested in being one :) Hers my application.)

    Good morning Commander ChristopherOdd. Here is the file you requested pertaining to this individual. I'm not excited about possibly losing a very good soldier, but I was ordered to help with any resources I have, including personnel. I'm not entirely sure what you guys are up to but I assume its something big.
    ----Colonel Terry

    First Name: Tyler
    Last Name: Young
    Nickname: "Slender"
    Age: 27
    Gender: Male
    Ethnicity: Caucasian
    Country of Origin : United States
    Sexuality: Bisexual
    Marital Status: Single
    Height: 5'9''
    Weight: 165 lbs
    Hair: Medium Black Hair
    Eyes: Slate Grey
    Scarring/Tattoos: Tattoo of a griffin with its wings skewered by a sword with 16 tally marks etched into the blade on his left shoulder. Also jagged scar along right index finger with the tip amputated.

    Biographical Synopsis: Born in 1988 in Ridgecrest, California. Tyler was born into a military family, his father being a Marine. Due to his upbringing, he views the military as a secondary family. He is highly intelligent, having received good grades in school and being on the honor roll all through out high school. At 16 he suffered an accident where the tip of his right index finger had to be amputated (luckily he is left handed). When he was 18 he joined the military. During basic training, he made high marks, getting expert when firing an M-16 rifle. He later went into advanced training and shot his first sniper rifle. After he finished his training, he joined a black ops unit and recieved further training to stay as far from the mission objective as possible when taking a shot. He was sent out on a highly classified operation to remove a dictator in the far east. His spotter died in the drop when his parachute didn't deploy so he had to do the job himself. And he succeeded, earning him more recognition with his unit commander as well as the ire of several higher-ups. He is currently stationed in Washington D.C. awaiting any further orders. We have attached a recoding when we spoke with him about being assigned to a new operation.



    On a side note Commander, if you need something done, he is your man. He's willing to do what is necessary to get a job done. He is as loyal as it comes. Its difficult to get his trust but once you do he will willingly trudge through the fires of hell for you and his teammates. I've personally seen him, from time to time, visiting wounded soldiers in the medical wing here.

    Military History:
    1 tour in Iraq with the 501st Airborne.
    Was to deploy to Korea but was unable to pass a mental evaluation at the time.
    Was stationed in Germany for 2 years.

    Accomplishments:
    Has experience within a wide range of weaponry.
    Completed advanced sniper training at Camp Pendleton.
    First soldier in his unit to hit a target outside of the range of fire accurately.
    Currently is the only sniper within his unit to operate without a spotter.

    Psychological Evaluation:
    His family a history of mental illness. His grandfather had Alzheimer's while his grandmother had a mild case of schizophrenia. He underwent an evaluation as per protocol after a highly dangerous mission. While medical personnel deemed him physically fit for combat , the onsite psychologist showed some concerns and said while he may be stable, he is a little bit unhinged with sociopathic tendencies. He also shows signs of possible PTSD, which would be understandable considering the outcome of said previous mission. During the session, in moments of frustration I noticed his hair would sometimes stand up and the glass of water shaking just enough to move the water. Not sure if that is redundant or not, just giving you a warning.

    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.
