Name: Miles Lonergan
Appearance: Tall, just over 6' with a slim, but powerful build. His dark brown hair is cut in a tight, military style. His almost hawkish face and ice-blue eyes have a certain... penetrating that most folk find either intimidating or stupid. He tends to prefer black or gray gear, usually dressing in black cargo utilities and a gray long-sleeve. In combat, he will occasionally wear an armored plate-carrier. But due to said carrier's weight, he only puts it on if hereallythinks he'll need it.
Abilities: A Former alliance Major, Lonergan is a leader, a capable fighter, and (if pressed) can fly. Not terribly well, mind you, but he won't ruin a shuttle.
Bio: A Major with the Alliance during the Unification war, he fought for the Alliance more from a sense of duty, the from any real ill-will towards the Independents. Ever since he mustered out, rumors of illegal and immoral experiments carried out by the Alliance have driven him towards the browncoats, though he still tries to play nice with the Alliance. He usually tries to adhere to the spirit of the law, if not to the actual letter, except when said law is blatantly wrong.
Extras: Lonergan still has a few old military buddies, and will sometimes call in favors to procure weapons and gear of a... questionable legality.2/4/2012 . Edited 2/4/2012 #2 Report
--- And, a ship---
Phoenix An old Alliance Spaceship Corp. Dragonfly-01, Phoenix was only a handful of the big Dragonfly-class ships ever built.
An attempt to build a larger, faster transport using off-the-shelf components from an -03 series firefly, the Dragonfly proved very expensive to build, and due to a much greater mass, even its twin engines couldn't give it much of a performance advantage over the cheaper fireflies. The -02 and -03 versions feacutred drastic weight and cost-cutting measures made them unreliable and unpopular with buyers. However, the pricy -01 Dragonfly is has the same sturdy engineering that made the fireflysuch a popular degign.
Two side-mounted cargo pods allow Phoenix to carry 50% more cargo than a firefly, while retaining two spinal shuttle docking ports. Said docking ports are currently occupied by Matthews Aerospace S-7 "Galileo" shuttles. Along with the shuttles,Phoenixhas a pair of wheeled mules (however one or the other is almost always broken).2/4/2012 . Edited 2/4/2012 #3 Report
Name: Yang Ming Chow
Appearance: Tall and slender, with wavy black hair and incredibly curios eyes. Yang is almost always wearing some form of T-shirt (usually with a funny slogan) and has an inordinate like for sneakers. She also tends to festoon herself with grenades in combat. Because grenades are awesome.
Abilities: A decent shot, Yang is a master with explosives, a pyrotechnical artist, bragging that she can knock a wall down without waking the neighbors. Or, ya know, just level the whole block if that's what's needed.
Bio: The daughter of a Browncoat engineer, Yang was well schooled in the art engineering fine structures. An art she turned out to be less-than-fine at. She was, however, quite good at destroying said structures. Though snarky with her friends she is often reasonably polite. She threw her lot in with Miles after the former bailed her out after Yang got into a nasty bar-fight on U-day.
Extras: Her nickname is Whale. No one's really sure how she got it, and she changes her story every time she's asked.2/4/2012 #4 Report

Abilities: Ace pilot with numerous medals and citations for his flying skills. He is a dead-eye shot with a rifle, and usually takes one shot one kill on anything
Bio: He was a posterboy for the flying academy for many years, his squadron and himself in particular scored one of the best ground attack kill ratio of any Alliance unit in the Unification war. He was dishonorably discharged after following a direct order to attack a high value target, which turned out to be a civilian convoy that was mistaken for Browncoats during the closing days of the war. He was used as a whipping boy for the brass to save face and the REMFs to keep their careers. He now hires himself out as a freelance pilot, avoiding Alliance space, but still keeps his good manners, crisp grooming, and IVY League manner about himself.
Extras: Although bitter about what happened to him, he still holds a distant respect for the intentions of the Alliance which gets him into arguments quite frequently, usually him stopping another person's fist with his face2/11/2012 #5 Report
