Character Information

Summary

Born in the gutters of New York and forced to fight at an early age, it didn't take long for Booker to find that he had a knack for violence. With the prospects before him either a life of crime on the streets or joining something bigger than himself, he took the plunge and enlisted into the UCAS military at 18. His training saw him transferred to where his skills could be put to good use, the Rangers, and he served two tours deployed in a number of hot-spots across the globe.

The military made a good life for him, but Booker saw better prospects elsewhere in the private sector. He became a soldier-for-hire, his skills bringing him the money and lifestyle that he had always dreamed of. He didn't put much thought into what he was being paid to do, he was a gun to be pointed and fired for all he was concerned. That was until they stabbed him in the back, a cover-up for some PR scandal that was threatening the corp. He wouldn't be just a pawn to be sacrificed when it was necessary, however, so he gathered what resources he had and burned his old life down. Now new prospects await, and the man known as Booker is eager to strike it fresh in the shadows.

---

In essence, he is a military vet with a chip on his shoulder and the muscle to back up his words. He has a bit of a temper and can seem cold or even insulting to others, easily escalating situations when he feels threatened or insulted. For those that get to know him better, however, he can prove a valued and loyal friend, one whose abrasive exterior is tempered by a brotherly nature and a personal code of ethics. This isn't some soulless automaton, but a proud, if damaged, soldier who won't back down if intimidated.

Appearance

A fair-skinned man in his early 30s, Booker sports obvious, military-style chromed limbs painted in a dull desert brown colour along with fairly conspicuous blue cybereyes. Short-cropped brown hair accentuates a rugged-looking face which often sports a five'o'clock shadow. Along his neck and descending down his chest and back is a veritable tapestry of body art, military tatoos and other imagery. The logos of over half a dozen PMCs can be found there including the MET2K and MAC alongside a proment UCAS Rangers tatoo on the right of his neck.

Clothing

Prefers utility over style with his regular clothing, though can also be found wearing a suit when the situation calls for it. Casually he often wears cargo pants and boots with a rough leather jacket, black gloves, and often a shirt or hoodie underneath.

Matrix Persona

A fairly basic Knight persona clad in full plate armour. He clearly hasn't put much effort into personalizing it.

Media Mentions

Was involved in a false flag operation against a UCAS government building which was spread on the news. Booker and the team were not identified however.
