Personal History/Bio (more than one line please):


Fritz was born on a small farm near Munich, Bavaria on March 16, 1923 to a heavily devout Catholic mother and a former Great War Imperial German Pilot who was now working as a mechanic for the nearby large city of Munich. The Scweinger family was in a relatively stable economic position despite the monetary crisis that beheld Germany at the time. Franz grew up with stories of his dad flying his Fokker Triplane, his head already in the clouds.

By the time he was 10, he has joined a group of older boys in creating a glider club, sponsored by a nearby Messerschmitt aircraft factory. Soon, the boys had built their first glider and they began to take turns flying it above the small hills and patch work ground of the Bavarian countryside. Franz was soon identified as the best pilot of the group and despite his age, quickly became the groups leader and teacher. Franz would always look back on those days in happiness as he remembered soaring above a large field, a large group of boys chasing him from the ground.

When Franz was 16, he was sent to a boarding school by his mother near Ulm, Germany. Due to the recent appointment of Chancellor Adolf Hitler, the family had recently undertaken an economic boom due to the arrival of many more automobiles on the streets as well as new military factories that would employ Franz's father to help construct their aircraft and Armoured vehicles. Franz, despite his Catholic faith, joined a dueling club without his mother's approval, something she hated. ( Dueling clubs were outlawed in the Catholic Church) When his mother found out about the club, she immediately took him out of the school.

By the time Franz was 18, Lufthansa had heard of his flying in the glider via his father and hired him to fly passenger to different parts of Europe. ( After training and making sure he could actually fly of course.) It was at Lufthansa that Franz learned how to actually fly aircraft and he became very good at it, the pride of the Southern German Lufthansa branch.

Fran's was soon placed in the Luftwaffe to fight in the war with Spain. He flew a new Messerschmitt BF-109, the most advanced aircraft to date. He scored a total of six "kills" against both Soviet and Republican Spanish Aircraft. He left the Luftwaffe to rejoin Lufthansa after 2 months of fighting, the requirement placed on him by the Reich.

Unfortunately Franz's Lufthansa career was cut short in 1937 after a string of Catholic students were arrested by the Scutzstaffel in Munich. Franz's mother quickly rushed Franz out of the country to nearby France, where he took a job as an airline mechanic, like his father who was still in Germany. He stayed in this job until he moved to England in early 1939.

In 1939, England was still devoid of work. Franz, still wanting to fly, signed up for the Royal Air Force but his papers were rejected because of his German heritage. Franz worked then as a mechanic in Mulberry until the RAF came to get him. The need for experienced pilots against the masses of German Aircraft was estential; estential enough to over look his heritage. Franz was able to join the RAF and was placed in Dover for the time being. What he didn't know was that he also made a short list of elite pilots to join Excaliber Squadron because of his German Heritage and Ace status.

In two minds whether to have Patrick involved in the Spanish Civil War, that said the pre-war British Airways flew flights into Northern Spain during the Civil War (mainly to report on how well the Nationalists were doing). Changed the company that Patrick worked for then its possible he could've been on one of these trips and ended up getting stranded.

I would be lying if I said I hadn't considered the same for the reboot's Jimmy, but it kind of interferes with another thing I wanted to do with him.

The idea is to give Patrick some air combat experience, though could also work it that he's reporting to the Air Ministry back in the UK.

Name: Samantha Samuel Melody
Date of Birth: 02/14/1922 1919
Rank: Flight Sergeant
Physical Description/Picture:
Image

Place of Origin: United States of America
Flight/Flight Combat Experience: None
Ground Combat Experience: None (available for listing legally)
Specialties: "Advanced" interrogation techniques, disguises and hiding, thievery, lock-picking, intimidation, and "connections"
Weapons of Choice: M1928A1 Thompson, Smith and Wesson M1917, Stiletto switchblade
RP Experience: Here
Personal History/Bio: Samantha Melody was born in a small rural town in the Midwestern countryside on a farm. Most of her early childhood was spent there until the farm went under and her parents died in a house fire. With the expenses from the farm and funeral already drying up her extended family's wallets, they chose to reluctantly send her off to an orphanage out in the city. She spent many lonely nights there until a few well-dressed men came in and took her home. Samantha had no idea that she had just been adopted by a mob don until later on when the man sought to make her into an heiress of sorts. He began to teach her everything he wanted her to know about organized crime and about the mob family, because she was family now and was treated as such by the other members. It wasn't until she started hitting puberty and her rebellious phase that she started getting a bit tired of the same things to do every day. She had done the usual racketeering and extortion bits (ran out of the flower shop that she helped at legally), even gotten into stealing, which she found she was very good at doing during the night. But as she grew up, and the people she knew were either arrested or killed, she wanted to do more.

Samantha asked her father and he gave her a simple hit to do with a few of the other guys, but it went South fast and she was almost caught and jailed. Since that incident, she had been put on the then Bureau of Investigation, now Federal Bureau of Investigation's wanted list, albeit at a very low number. Meanwhile, Samantha decided that she had enough. She got into an argument with her father and stormed off, steaming. Without much else to do, she got a few of her friends in the family together and told them she wanted to head off overseas, as what better place to get away than to another continent? And it looked like things were heating up in Europe anyway, so that was even better. It was then that she got the bright idea of joining the RAF. She cut her hair short, bound her chest, practiced her deep male voice (helped by having an already naturally deeper voice than most females), dressed in men's clothes, and hopped onto the first boat out to England. Using her wits, cunning, and money, she managed to bribe her way past the examination and lied convincingly about her name, gender, and age for enlistment. Of course, it was always awful to sneak a shower in the dark at night and make excuses about not going to them during the day, but she somehow managed to fully adapt to the harsh trials of the first Special Operations Squadron. Besides, flying? That was pretty badass. No way she was going back home after this. Her dad would probably want her dead anyway.

Actually, the more I think of it, I could give this Jimmy some experience in Spain without interfering too much with the thing I want to do with him.

Glad I'm not the only person who thought this. While I didn't hate it, I still don't see what all the awards fuss was about.

Then again, La La Land lost and Suicide Squad won an Oscar too, so I'm done putting my faith in the Academy.

Green light given. I think that's the roster filled up!

Got to start again
Try to hold a trace of what it was back then
You and I we sent each other stories
Just a page I'm lost in all its glory

Monfrox wrote: Personal History/Bio: Samantha Melody was born in a small rural town in the Midwestern countryside on a farm. Most of her early childhood was spent there until the farm went under and her parents died in a house fire. With the expenses from the farm and funeral already drying up her extended family's wallets, they chose to reluctantly send her off to an orphanage out in the city. She spent many lonely nights there until a few well-dressed men came in and took her home. Samantha had no idea that she had just been adopted by a mob don until later on when the man sought to make her into an heiress of sorts. He began to teach her everything he wanted her to know about organized crime and about the mob family, because she was family now and was treated as such by the other members. It wasn't until she started hitting puberty and her rebellious phase that she started getting a bit tired of the same things to do every day. She had done the usual racketeering and extortion bits (ran out of the flower shop that she helped at legally), even gotten into stealing, which she found she was very good at doing during the night. But as she grew up, and the people she knew were either arrested or killed, she wanted to do more.

Samantha asked her father and he gave her a simple hit to do with a few of the other guys, but it went South fast and she was almost caught and jailed. Since that incident, she had been put on the then Bureau of Investigation, now Federal Bureau of Investigation's wanted list, albeit at a very low number. Meanwhile, Samantha decided that she had enough. She got into an argument with her father and stormed off, steaming. Without much else to do, she got a few of her friends in the family together and told them she wanted to head off overseas, as what better place to get away than to another continent? And it looked like things were heating up in Europe anyway, so that was even better. It was then that she got the bright idea of joining the RAF. She cut her hair short, bound her chest, practiced her deep male voice (helped by having an already naturally deeper voice than most females), dressed in men's clothes, and hopped onto the first boat out to England. Using her wits, cunning, and money, she managed to bribe her way past the examination and lied convincingly about her name, gender, and age for enlistment. Of course, it was always awful to sneak a shower in the dark at night and make excuses about not going to them during the day, but she somehow managed to fully adapt to the harsh trials of the first Special Operations Squadron. Besides, flying? That was pretty badass. No way she was going back home after this. Her dad would probably want her dead anyway.

Mon, I think this would probably work better with Sam just as a visibly female pilot. I imagine you'd have to pass a real medical examination in order to make it into the RAF, in any respect, and...er...problems would present themselves there. We could retcon a way in, in that respect.
