Default N7: Operation AvantGuard, salvation of Trident

================================================== ========
Mission Debrief:
Operation: AvantGaurd
Primary Objective: infiltrate Trident and extract the VIP.
Secondary Objective: stop Cerberus's plans on the planet.
Tertiary objective: Acquire Intel on creature known as kracken for recherche team Gamma Theta.
================================================== ========

This is general Kizer of Turian High command Reporting for Admiral Jordan. jordan's cruiser got shot down last week as you all know so he couldn't be here with us today to give you this briefing via the hologram you're now watching. now pay attention and pay attention well because i'm only going to go over this once.
The planet Trident is 95 percent water, so bring your swim trunks and rebreathers. but make no mistake, we're not sending you to paradise to work on your tan. we've been contacted discreetly by a group of scientists looking to defect from Cerberus. you are being sent to trident for them and only them. dont get delusions of saving the planet, get in, get the VIPs, and get off world as quickly as you can. Cerberus doesn't know we're coming and we want to keep it that way, hence the closed circuit on this hologram. you're to expect heavy resistance once Cerberus discovers you're on planet, we're talking Goliath battle metes, implaced drone platforms, and ancestors know what else.

furthermore we have no idea where the VIPs are on the planet, once you get down there you're going to have to try and gather as much intell on your own as you can. it's a big world but there's only a few dozen populated islands, your best bet is to start sifting through transport loggs and find which ones are receaving higher than normal ammounts of Palladium powder, the island that is getting the most is going to be your best bet.

once you find the VIPs, you are to make your way to the extraction point on the southern pole of the planet and detonate the eliment zero refinery there. that's our sign that you're ready for extraction. once we see the explosion on our sensors, we're jumping in with the entire fith joint fleet to get you boys and girls out of there.

one more thing. the reserche team Gamma Theta wants you to keep an eye out for anything relating to some mythical beast they're chasing after called Kracken. some kind of large armored squid thing from the sounds of it. we're not expecting anything on that but the reserche team themselves is convinced something relating to kracken can be found here. i merely told them i'd pass along the request. this objective is your least important objective and is not likely to be completed. if you want to pretend that i didn't mention it, that's your choice.

Good luck team. General Kizer out
================================================== =======

Trident info can be found here
http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Trident

Race and Class information can be found here
http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mas..._Customization
i am accepting everything that can be found in the class list (with the exception of the battlefield 3 class). you are not just N7s, you are drell, asari, volus, krogan, human, vorcha, geth, and pretty much everything listed there.

weapons i'm limiting however. you need to have a good reason to have what you have. it needs to fit your character archtype and your history. but please just use logic. collector weapons are so rare to actualy recover them in tact, it is incredibly unlikely that you would ever get your hands on one. Encountering collectors, rare, surviving the encounter, rare for the encounters, recovering one of their weapons and surviving the mission? not likely and should be considered ultra rare.

Weapon Notations: weapons are often upgraded. this is the distinction of (insert weapon name here) 1-X. with X being the final upgrade to the weapon's actual functionality and core. to upgrade a weapon you literally have to purchase another one at the same level, scrap it for parts, and then use those parts to improve the weapon. it's a timely and costly process. it's also why not all weapons are the same. two avenger rifles will likely behave very differently depending on the "rank" of the gun.
it's essentially a 1 to 10 scale. with 1 being absolute stock and 10 being the penile of that weapon. i wont bat much of an eyelash when it comes to this as long as you're being logical. ie avenger III and a carnafex II? sure, no problem. Geth Pulse Rifle X and a graal X? not likely. if you only have a single weapon i will allow it to be a max of a V provided you actually attempt to "wow" me with your profile. a X of anything will make people shit bricks made out of uranium 238

you are not shepard! just thought i'd clear that first

SHEPARD'S CHOICES AND YOU! according to what can be decerned, the good commander sided with Geth forces AND saved tali, you can see this as we now have access to geth forces of our own and increasing quarian tech and units. neither of which would be possible if shep sided with one or the other.

Name: Jackson Mclanahan


Age: 39


Sex: male


Race: Human (N7)


Archtype: Soldier


Subarchtype: N7 destroyer soldier


Apperance: Jackson has a strong build which he got in the academy and a life time preparing for the military and being in it. Across his right eye is a scar from where an Omni-blade almost cut him up on one of his raids and his eyes are a dark grey almost black but not entirely. He has black hair with the standard military haircut. He is about 1.9 meters tall.

Personality: Jackson is overall a happy and upbeat person cracking jokes and likes to make friends when he can. Strangely he likes all other species. In combat he becomes more metallic and sees the battle field from a tactical view which was made after a life in military and training. However recently he has received word of his families demise (save his sister) has sent him into his metallic ‘disconnected’ life where he pays little care to others but still performs to the best of his abilities.


Primary Weapon: M99 Saber II


Secondary Weapon: N7 hurricane


Biography:

Pre-military life;
Mclanahan joined the alliance military roughly 14 years ago at the age of 23. As a child Both his parents worked in the alliance his mother, an alliance officer and his father, a frigate captain. While they were widely considered an unlikely couple it worked and they eventually had 2 children Jackson, and Margret. Margret was the first born and considered widely as gifted and bright due to her having strong biotic and an interest over tech, with this and her families military path she was accepted into Grissom academy. Still when Jackson was old enough he was brought into the academy two years later. and although he didn’t have any biotics he quickly showed a heavy enthusiasm towards math, physics and Xenobiology.

Eventually both Margret and Jackson left the academy (Margret at 20 and Jackson at 19) both going separate ways, Margret going into military research and Jackson going into an Alliance military academy to finish his studies. Until the age of 22 Jackson trained to be a soldier going into a pre-military career as his teachers commented. While it was highly common for some to do this Jackson showed exceptional performance especially when it came to shooting (as a sport at the time) claiming he can ‘imagine the bullets path’ many of his peers claimed it was down to his math skills or ‘nerd powers’ (even though Jackson held one of the top physical scores). But as a soldier accuracy is held higher above strength.

Military career;
Because of this it was no surprise he started as a sniper, but soon his commanders found that he lacked the calmness required to wait for a shot or receive fire from the enemies without trying to move to cover or back up. And so Jackson was moved into an average soldier position and excelled. While at the time there was little combat, he performed well in drills and the few pirate raids he dealt with were performed with little to no casualties on the alliances side. Soon he was promoted to sergeant. Then in 2183CE the first human spectre was brought in and a whole new galaxy of trouble came. Jackson (unlike many others) believed in reapers, or more specifically believed in Sheppard. Many times Jackson showed his disagreement with his commanding officers for ignoring reaper threats and possible trails and because of it lost favour and his career stagnated and he was commonly placed in dangerous missions with little purpose. Then the reapers came.

Reaper invasion;
At the time Jackson was on the Earth’s moon (surveying where a VI turned into an AI a few years ago) after reports of a concerned civilian claiming the AI was still present and making strange readings. When the reapers hit Jackson was ordered to evac the civilians and he managed to do so without a casualty encountering only one lone cannibal scout. His group was one of the few batches to make it to the frigate. During the war Jackson proved to be a true soldier time and time again. In one mission he ended up aiding a war news group evac off a colony under reaper attack and ended up a top story from this his skill was noticed and he was put forward into the N7 project where once again his accuracy was keen and by now having the budget he was able to get an M99 Saber, which was practically made for his style shooting, throughout the war he has held the same weapon and steadily he has built it up to the II level.

Due to the invasion of Earth training could not be handled properly in Rio de Janeiro, but has still been placed multiple missions. One mission in particular had Jackson inside a Mako during a push. Least to say the push went bad and almost the entire group making the charge was lost, however Jackson was knocked unconscious long enough for the reaper forces to push past him and leave him a few dozen meters behind their flank. Here Jackson was reported to use his semi-operational mako turret to cause chaos among the reaper forces until being dragged out by a brute, however Jackson claims to have found a weapon while being dragged out and when the brute held him at head height he gave Jackson the perfect opportunity to unleash a full clip of an N7 hurricane into the creatures head, killing it. While the mission was not a success the chaos allowed a group to get past and pull out survivors, including Jackson who still holds onto the weapon today.
Final comments;

Sadly, Jacksons mother and father were killed in the initial reaper invasion being one of the nearest ships to the relay they were torn to pieces when the reapers came through, the ships ‘tags’ have only recently been recovered.

(ooc- hope this is ok let me know if I need to change it )

Name: May Faringworth

Age: 28

Sex: Female

Race: Human

Archtype: Infiltrator

Subarchtype: N7 Shadow

Appearance: She stands at around 5 foot 7", with a very slim build, not the most intimidating build. However due to her time in the military, she has an athletic body, able to cope with the stress and strain of the job at hand. She has light blonde hair, cut to her shoulders and kept at regulatory standards. She has light blue eyes, her face having no scars. She has one long scar that snakes down her arm, a souvenir of a batarian mercenary.

Primary Weapon: M-92 Mantis

Secondary Weapon: M-5 Phalanx

Biography: May's was born on Earth, her father serving as a marine commander on a frigate and as such was away on tours of duty for most of her childhood. As such she was raised by her mother, who was a civilian and an art dealer. As such May had a fairly cultured upbringing, learning how to fence from an early age as a result of her father's influence on her, liking nothing more than when her father was at home to hear him tell tales of what life was like serving on a warship.

When she was in her teens her father passed away, fighting against pirates he was shot in the throat and killed. This affected May deeply, and to honour her father's memory she joined the Alliance Military as a marine, though she could have gone in as an officer. She excelled as a sniper, her small petite frame allowing her to get into more advantageous positions that she could snipe from, as well as her father having told her how to be a marksman though he never wanted her to join.

She soon shipped out, serving for three years against pirates until a Commander Sheppard was made the first human Spectre. At first May didn't believe the stories of the Reapers that Commander Sheppard was telling everyone, believing instead that the Geth were the main enemy. That was until Human colonies started to go missing, something about the whole affair seemed off to May, though she didn't connect it to the reapers.

As a marine she was deployed to a research station that had gone dark, her team infiltrating as they were the closest unit in the area and Alliance command needed to find out what was going on, a N7 team dispatched to arrive behind them. The marine's soon discovered that a Batarian raiding party had taken over the facility and used the defence turrets on the station to take down the exfiltration craft as it came down to pick up the embattled squad.

With no options left May moved to the security room where they were being fired from whilst the rest of the team distracted the majoirty of the Batarians. She managed to sneak into the room and shut down the turrets before she was found out, a Batarian attempted to stab her in the back with an omni blade. Lucky for May though she had studied fencing, and had kept up her studies throughout her career and she managed to kill the Batarian. Though she managed to shut down the security and anti aircraft flak cannons her squad were cut down by the Batarian soldiers, May left with no option but attempting to evade capture or death while the exfiltration craft came down. She managed to get out of the facility where she was met by the N7 strike team, the lead operative telling her that they needed to go back in and destroy all the sensitive information in the facility.

Having just escaped the facility she volunteered to go back in as she had first hand experience in the facility and wanted time to get her teams dogtags. This act saw her promoted to N7 status being sent to Rio de Janeiro for implants to become an infiltrator. When the reapers invaded her mother was killed in an attack on Earth whilst May was away on a mission. Devastated at the loss she fights for the rest of humanity, and to end the Reaper threat that exists.
