Supplemental Information

A pal from the Foreign Legions. Glad to have him around again.

System Information
  • Leonese Foreign Legionnaire - Donny left the jungles of Scorpia by the way of the Leonese Foreign Legion. Having spent little over a year in the legion before the Unification, he was in a number of engagements whilst enlisted in the force. Maybe you fought alongside him? Maybe you think poorly of him ditching home on the back of another colonies army?
  • Scorpia Clansman - Donny was born among the clans of Scorpia, and he was raised by them. Born into the ill-fated clan Bolo, a small and lesser clan that used child soldiers when they were brought into clan warfare through the entanglement of marriage and subsequentally was destroyed because of it. Have you butted heads with Donny or his Clanmates? Perhaps you've fought along side him or his people?
  • Former Child Soldier - Donny was raised as a child soldier during hard times on Scorpia. A lot of his childhood was spent fighting rather than properly living as a child. Did you grow up in the same situation as Donny? Maybe alongside him? Maybe you fought against him during that time? Feel bad, got a grudge, want revenge?
  • Guerrilla - Donny spent a lot of time fighting forces much larger than his own, fighting irregularly and with hit and run tactics. Sneaking up, attacking, and then fleeing is something Donny is good at. Maybe you too? Or maybe you think he's a coward?
  Donny was born on Scorpia to a local militant couple that were a part of the small Bolo clan. While his years living as a true child were brief, they were formative as he grew up on family and clan principles of bravery and patience. However, that young life of his was disrupted rather quickly as clan politics set into motion warfare between his clan and their allies and some others. As a child Donny spent two years fighting before him and his clan lost, and Donny and a few other fighters and civilians made it out with their lives- scattered and chased off. 

  It wasn't long before Donny happened upon a wandered guerrilla group fighting against another clan and to live another day, and without any other options he joined with them. His time with them was not so long-lived either, but with the few years he had spent with them as he came of age he gained friends and familial companionship that he had lost to conflict. However, this new loss of family was mostly bloodless and was a falling out of ideologies too different to let slide, and some went one ways, others another, and a few their own. Donny followed with a few headed to try and make a fair living within Leonese owned lands of Scorpia, finding their own ways to work and make a living. Donny found his own path in the way of a tattoo artist, making a fair income in the poorer areas of Scorpia that would either be spent on recreational drugs first and necessities second, or robbed of him when folks had the chance. 

  Years pass with this status quo for Donny before, on a mixture of a whim, a lust for better living standards, and a taste of previous nostalgia he enlisted within the Leonese Foreign Legion. With them having overlooked his poor background and former clan relations, they enlisted him within their corps and spent the better part of a year and some months fighting against the Cylons where his superiors wanted him to, until the time of Unification came along and he found himself in the process of being shuffled around as the Colonial Forces arranged themselves. 

  Donny finds himself now signed on to serve as a part of the Timber Wolves and on the Vanguard ship. And truth be told, he doesn't know what to expect, but he only hopes whatever it is will last. 

Donny stands at a solid height of six feet, broad shouldered and with a mesomorphic build. His body is covered with fair toned white skin, with a faint tank-top shaped tan. Donny has a short head of straight dull brown hair, combed out of the way from his view and kept within marine regulation length and style. He has a pair of dark blue eyes under brown eyebrows. Upon his face resides a light stubble and a Magnum P.I. styled mustache, under a small refined nose and two defined cheekbones. He has a pair of thin pink lips and an oblong shaped chin.

  Donny has an athletic build, his musculature subtle and from work and activity. On his body are numerous Scorpian clan related tattoos, small and tucked away whilst he has Leonese Foreign Legion tattoos in more obvious spots, bigger and bolder- often covering up portions of his back. The man often carries himself with a short stride, with quick steps and subtle arm sway. 

 Donny is dressed to kill. He wears all black coveralls underneath a bulletproof vest of the same color holding a few ammunition and utility pouches fitted with necessary supplies. His knees and elbows are protected by reinforced pads and upon his head is a black metal combat helmet with combat goggles strapped upon them. On his vestments shows the patch of a Lance Corporal, where it belongs. His hands and feet are covered in SAP gloves and black combat boots.
