Forward into the Breach


Image


2023, a year marked by relief. As the Russian-Ukraine war has ended on Ukraine's terms and luckily for the world. China has for now backed off of a possible invasion of Taiwan. So where the world seemed relieved by this news. For one city in America, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. A tragedy will occur and things would change for the city and the world. For instead of another quiet day in this city, at eight o'clock at night and during the last hour of the Oklahoma State Fair. A group of monsters led by some kind of specter appeared at OKC Fairgrounds through a portal on the northeastern part of the fairgrounds. Chaos ensued and the local guards and police. They were quickly overwhelmed in the chaos and it was not until more police and SWAT reinforcements arrived on the scene that they managed to kill the monsters. Though the leader of the monsters, the specter was only killed thanks to the quick thinking of an officer when it was clear that bullets were not fazing it. He used a taser and found that it was weak to electricity and he and several officers tasered the specter until it died. Or at least they think they killed it. Saving the day though at the cost of many lives. Both civilian and police.

When morning came, the city was busy with activity as news of it broke, and soon local and major news stations were reporting it. Getting the attention of the US government and later the world. The portal was cornered off and fortified in case more monsters arrived. But, strangely enough, while no monsters came through, a signal was detected that was coming from the portal. It was some kind of message but, it was distorted and corrupted.

When it became clear that the portal was not going away, there was talk of what to do. Ultimately it was decided that an expedition led by the US was to be formed and sent through the portal to explore and kill any hostiles that they find. Along with finding the source of the signal and determine the nature of the message. Now two weeks later, the expedition was ready to send out its first sortie. No one knows what to expect but, one thing is certain. Monsters lie on the other side and if they want to make sure that they can not kill any more innocents. They must go through and deal with this threat and along the way discover more about this new world that lies beyond the portal.

Rules:
Respect the Op and the CO-OPS
No Godmodding.
No One Liners, Min is one paragraph.
No meta gaming.
No raging/flaming.
No spamming in the IC or the OOC either one.
No Op characters
Your chars can die

Overview

Hello and welcome to the rp. In this rp, you will be playing as soldiers of a US-led expedition into a portal and to a new world. A world filled with monsters and yet strangely like our world as you will discover during the expedition. Finding all sorts of beings both friendly, hostile, and wary that can help or hinder the expedition. As for what weapons and equipment your char should carry. It can be anything as long as it makes sense and expect to gain more equipment during the course of the rp as bullets can not kill everything found in this new world. So just list what would be the default loadout for your char. As a reminder, given the nature of the rp, it is possible for a char to die. Due to either a mistake or going into a situation unprepared or foolishly. Just a reminder since you will be traveling into a new world and not sure of what to expect. As for the rp itself, while it is a sci if rp. It has elements of fantasy and horror. So if anyone has any questions just ask.

Just something that I messed up with, people should apply as soldiers of the expedition. I realized that I was not clear about that in the overview and is fixed.

Is it possible to take vehicles along?
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

Edit,on second thought. The portal is big enough to fit a vehicle barely but, it would be impractical given the first area. But, they will be accessible after the first mission.

Name: Harold "Harry" Quinn
Gender: Male
Age: 28
Appearance:
Image
Nationality: American
Personality: Quiet and slightly withdrawn with a passive attitude in conversation, it would be easy to write off Quinn as unfit for placement in the expedition, as he doesn't initially seem to fit the mold of those we tend to recruit. Quinn holds himself to a high professional standard, though he may initially seem lackadaisical or possibly disinterested in his work, he becomes quite animated when talking about medicine.

Quinn has a strong moral compass, though his tendency to voice concerns/opposition is minimal. Quinn would rather be accepted by his peers than act on any moral obligations he feels he may have. However, It should be noted that this theory has never had to stand up to certain extreme stresses in the field and should be regarded as an unknown factor. Despite this, Quinn has displayed an excellent capacity for compartmentalization and coping, he seems stable both on the job and at home with no professional reprimands worth noting and none of the usual signs of home stress (calls for police from neighbors, excessive drinking, risky behavior when unwarranted, etc.).

Quinn has strong familial bonds that are both a grounding element for him regarding stressors and a stressor in and of themselves. It is clear to me that he adores his wife and in-laws as well as his sister and can talk about them and their collective pasts at length. It is apparent that he uses these relationships as a source of strength and motivation, particularly with his wife and daughter. Nazanina and Ellen are his primary motivation.

Background: Quinn's early life has few points of note, he comes from a lower-middle-class family that resided in the Alum Rock neighborhood of San Jose, California. His early life seemed to have been pleasant enough, his father worked as a municipal garbage collector and his mother was a nurse at Regional Medical Center. Going over school records, Quinn seemed to have been a mostly C and occasionally B student who appeared to show an aptitude for history and English courses. The first clear point of interest in his life is the death of his parents in 2007 during his first year of high school. At the time of their deaths, he was attending James Lick High where he was close to Nazanina Ghani, whose family took both Quinn and his sister in after the incident. The incident itself is particularly unfortunate, a workmate of Mr. Quinn had loaned him two thousand dollars to help with Jasmine Quinn's medical bills and after several months of being unable to pay the workmate back a fight broke out when said workmate came to the Quinn household to finally collect. According to police records the altercation eventually escalated to a point where the workmate got a 9mm pistol from his car with the intent to threaten Mr. Quinn, but went sideways when, in a struggle, the gun went off and shot Mrs. Quinn in the head. Needless to say, the fighting only got worse and only ended when Mr. Quinn was also shot and killed. According to the report, both Quinn children were out that night (Harry with Nazanina and Jasmine with friends) and had to be found and informed by the police.

After the murders, both Quinn children were taken in by the Ghani family. It has been made clear to me throughout several interviews that although that the Ghani's and Quinn's were particularly close, no doubt because of Harry and Nazanina's relationship, so when the pair were left as orphans, Hamid and Sahraa adopted them both. Reports from both Therapists and School Councilors make it clear that neither Quinn child took the events particularly well, though I can't imagine anyone would expect them to, though interestingly CPS reports from 2007-2009 indicate that both Quinn's home lives were exemplary with every need required by CPS met in abundance . Quinn managed to make it through high school with few incidents worth reporting (3.0 GPA at graduation, no sports or extracurriculars, few friends outside Nazanina and her small social circle).

Quinn enlisted in the Army directly after graduation with his adoptive parent's blessing. According to all involved, College was not something Quinn would have taken to well and trade school wasn't an attractive option either on the same grounds, it was the hope of Hamid and Sahraa that the Army would help give him a sense of belonging that would aid him in adapting to his adult life. Quinn went through BCT at Fort Benning and by all accounts was a perfectly average recruit, no Drill Sergeant could recall him until shown a photo of Quinn from around the time he would have gone through BCT. While acknowledging his complete average performance, one Drill Sergeant noted that Quinn seemed cool during most dressing-downs the Drill team gave, rarely cracking. When asked about his method, Quinn would say "They couldn't hit me, they couldn't give me a punishment that caused lasting harm, and BCT wasn't going to last forever. I just kept my head down and did exactly what they said, how they said to do it, and kept doing it until they told me to stop." Quinn's time at the Army's Department of Combat Medic Training was equally uneventful, though a few more instructors remember him fondly and he had a noted interest in the material.

After training, Quinn was deployed to the 82nd Airborne's 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, attending Jump School and proposing to Nazanina in between his graduation from DCMT and his posting in the 504th. He was soon deployed with a large portion of the 504th to Afghanistan's Ghazni province. He served the tour well, often volunteering to attach to patrols that he wasn't explicitly ordered to accompany and making quite the impression with his superiors in the 1st Battalion's BAS. On his return home after his first deployment, he married Nazanina and they moved to housing on Fort Benning. Records show Nazanina applying to Columbus State University shortly afterward and enrolling in CSU's "College of Letters and Sciences" Robotics Engineering program. Quinn would deploy to Afghanistan again, though this time the 504th would act in a reserve role based out of Bagram, and it is my belief that during this stay Quinn became interested in joining the Army SF. During my interviews with him, he often talked about talking to the "Operating sorts of guys" who would occasionally come through, and it is my belief after all our time talking that Quinn became enamored with the idea of being "special" and standing out from the pack.

Needless to say, Quinn made a good impression. His time in ODA 7335 seems to have been relatively productive. During his time with them, the ODA spent several years in Colombia, Mexico, and Honduras working with local governments against cartels, and by all records, Quinn has given exemplary service. Apparently, he set up and managed a field hospital during some small siege that never made it into the news cycle. These days Quinn lives with his wife, daughter, and dog in Seattle.
My politics are real simple: I just want to be able to afford to go to the doctor.
