*This app has been written IC*

Name: Poppy Blossom.
Sir? Why are you laughing? Sir?!
Age: 20.
Sex/gender: I'm a woman. I guess this will preclude me from most frontline jobs?
Rank: Recruit. Well, Sir, I cannot say I expected to start as a full private. However, does this mean I will be sent to the front only after a certain period of time? Sir? Why are you laughing again?
Years of service:
Civilian occupation: Florist. I work in a family business. Blossom Flowers Limited. I won't be offended if you've never heard of it, Sir. We just operate in Altaflor, my hometown, and nearby boroughs. It's good enough for us.
Nobility: No. Well, unless childhood princess fantasies count. *Recruit Blossom giggles* good times.
Preferred role: Ideally, I'd like to be an Army Botanical Specialist. Alternatively, an Army Florist? What? Ah, I understand. Well, if I can't be one of those....well, I don't know. I'll let you figure this out, sir. You're probably more expert than me when it comes to this sort of stuff.

(Mortar Operator, Support Gunner, Rifleman)
Preferred squad/platoon: I heard almost everyone gets assigned to Squad Alpha...
Appearance: An old summer photo of mine. I'm a brunette anyways.

Well obviously only one person would be studying plants. And their main role would be to figure out a) what makes them tick, and b) the best ways to counteract them.

Me too.
Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.

Gender binary. Non-binary (as Gren and I are IRL) would be if you don't identify as either male or female (at least not exclusively; there are a lot of subgroups within the non-binary label).

Mulder's not a guy who really cares about what gender someone might be, though his personal views indicate that he doesn't really believe that transgenderism is a thing. However, he's not about to openly discriminate against his own troops, though don't be surprised if he tries to joke around about it.
