  • BIOGRAPHY:

    Early Life
    Born and raised in the modest suburbs of Port Elizibeth, Gideon was part of one of just many blue collar families. His mother worked a job at a textile factory and his father was a simple railyard worker, both had to work to support Gideon and indeed his two sisters that preceded him. Of course, with his parents both pulling long hours and multiple work weeks, Gideon was often left in the care of his elderly Grandparents who were part of the Dutch diaspora who left the war stricken Netherlands in the wake of WW2. Perhaps this is where Gideon's fascination with the military, or more accurately, his Grandfathers role in it first started and was raised on his Grandfathers tall tales of him and his comrade in arms escapades against the Nazi regime. Gideon learned a lot from his Grandfather, namely absorbing his humility and justness.

    Child and Teenage years
    Gideon grew fast. Adopting his fathers broad and steady stature, Gideon was almost a head taller than the rest of the children and a lot heavier to boot and early on Gideon used this leverage to his advantage, becoming somewhat of a miscreant and troublemaker for schoolteachers and the local community at large. Spending many-a evening roaming the streets with his gang of fellow 'outlaws' they spent their time making mischief and merriment out of others misfortune, this landed him in hot water many-a times. Though his parents found it difficult to temper his attitude, Gideon's grandfather knew how to control him. Though he wouldn't be around forever and so gifted Gideon his collection of medals and war memorabilia, of which he still treasures to this day.

    In an effort to keep him on the straight and narrow, he was offered to join the local High-School Rugby team and because of his bulldozer frame quickly became a star Full-Back, so much so he was offered a spot with the cities home team.

    Early Career
    Between working odd doorman jobs and street security details, Gideon dedicated most of his time into playing Rugby and became somewhat of a small celebrity, earning monikers such as 'Gideon the Goliath'. However, two years into his career he suffered a broken fibula and was out for several months whilst it healed. In this time, Gideon's grandfather passed away which sent him into a depressive lull of which he turned to drink to alleviate.

    In time his leg healed, however he no longer had the lust to play the sport that had given him such satisfaction and more importantly, direction. Gideon hadn't even considered the military or anything close to it until a fellow rugby comrade suggested joining the SADF.

    SADF and Recces
    Gideon serve for several years in the SADF Army before he was referred to recruitment for the elite Recces, the notorious special forces of the South African Defence Force and passed the physical and mental requirements with room to spare. Of course, the next few months of training was unlike anything he had ever experienced before. Part of the 1st Parachute Battalion, he was pushed through a series of gruelling training regiments designed to push him to the very limit, including a week without food or sleep, only a handful from his 120 class passed.

    His first action was seen in the Central African Republic, where his unit was engaged by fighters from the Séléka militia group in the town of Bangui and several of his comrades were injured by small arms fire as the rebels seized the town. Without air or armoured support, the soldiers of the 1st Parachute and other South African units could only do so much and were ordered to fall back to the city's airport.

    Wildlife Rangers
    Gideon rotated out of his deployment in the CAR and spent several months back in his hometown, his wife, of whom he had met in his high-school years had left him for another man. Upset, Gideon returned to living alone, teetering back on the brink of alcoholism. However, he was approached by members of the African Wildlife Defence Force, a private ranger organisation based in the DRC which was dedicated to countering the multitude of illegal poachers and enforce wildlife conservation law. Gideon was offered to not only become a Special Ranger, but to teach other prospective rangers in the art of bush-tracking and jungle-combat due to his experience with both the British Royal Marines and U.S Army.

    In his time with the Rangers, Gideon was effective in tracking and locating numerous illegal instances of poaching and habitat destruction, performing numerous arrests and ending several prolific ivory poaching rings in the central African region. Working with the Rangers for around five years, eventually, due to budget constraints, Gideon could no longer be afforded and was forced to return to South Africa.

    It was here, through some old work colleagues, he found the number for Samael corp appear in his e-mail inbox.

  • BIOGRAPHY:


  • Born on 1991 in Aberdeen, Josephine lived in a harmonic and well-off life. Her father was the Deputy Commissioner on the Operations side, of the Hong Kong Police Force. Josephine is the third child and the youngest, with two elder brothers. The life was rather uneventful-ish, in spite of her father's position and the political landscape of Hong Kong between pre-British status and post-British status. She grew up just fine, a good student and all that status as the daughter of Deputy Commissioner. Still, her life took a turn for the worse not long after she graduated from junior high part of her school. Her first elder brother was a police officer, part of HKPD. A clash between her brother, his unit, and other police squad, with Triad ended up in many, many casualties. Her brother died in the hospital after a grueling 3 days.

    Ever since that, her father commissioned high protection details for all of his family members. Long enjoyed her independence with half of the level of that protection detail, it's beginning to take a toll on her life. She felt restrictions and she began to argued with her now-retired father over this. It's continued, and continued. Her father, feared of the similar incident that costed his son's life, was not budged with her argument. Her second elder brother took comfort with the detail, though since now he lived in Shanghai as a businessman, it didn't concerned him as much as it is to his sister. In an act against her father's decision, after getting Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education, she enlisted into Hong Kong Police Training School. Her father argued angrily over this, and was hurt emotionally in the process. Shortly before she finished the education, her parents cut her off from their family. She felt hurt as well, but nevertheless resolved to continue as police officer.

    She spent the next 4 years in HKPD, and then after an 11 day-selection course and the next 9-months of special training, she managed to entered SDU as the first female officer in SDU. Her father knew of this decision, and it was almost the straw that broke the camel's back. The next 5 years was spent inside the SDU, actively and passively involved in multiple small-scale SDU operations within the Hong Kong boundaries. The straw that broke the camel's back happened during a televised stand-off in Hong Kong, as a group of criminals broke in a bank and held hostages. A 12-hours stand-off emerged and when the SDU units broke through the bank to rescue the hostages, a firefight ensued. She was injured, lightly, but all the robbers were killed in the ensuing firefight. Her squadmates injured worse, severely from grenades.

    This broke the camel's back, and her father utilized his connections in HKPD to put Josephine in a reserve duty inside SDU. Angered with this decision, Josephine resigned from HKPD. Luckily for her, her team leader offered her a place of opportunity, perhaps also to proved to her father and for her financial security. She applied to Samael and was approved. For the next 2 years, she experienced operations like running protection details for celebrities in South Korea, escorting NGO in Venezuela, running an individual protection details in Thailand, mostly protection details.

    She was given her next assignment in Peru after her latest job in Greenland...

Right, I posted. If your name wasn't mentioned with the boat, you are probably in Hastur's team. In that case, he picks how many vehicles the team has, and I would wait for his post. If it wasn't mentioned, we have some new player characters. I wi update the roster in time.

We currently have a marksman I believe so we probably need automatic rifleman. we're fighting at pretty close range so I'm not sure how effective marksmen will be overall.

The automatic rifleman will probably go to Team 1, since Signorino is with Team 2.

In the event that three other lurkers might want to get in, I can form a Third Team as a late arrival.
