2235 - Tauron Military, Marines, Combat Engineer
2237 - Transferred to the Vanguard, Timber Wolves
Almost recon girl. Knows how to hold her drink. Both admirable qualities, especially for a viper jock.
Way to young to be out here, and yet she seems to be holding her own. That's something. Also, I've had worse bunkmates, even if she is a viper jock.
At first I thought it was an act, but now I figure it's just her. She can be fun, if in an annoyingly persistent way sometimes. Also, I owe her one-hundred and ninety million cubits, somehow.
Knows her stuff, and likes blowing stuff up as much as me, even if she's inclined to call bullshit on me. I suppose there's something in that.
Her bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. Still, she's Tauran enough to be admired, especially with her Triad skill.
Good to see a familiar face out here, one of the few people I trust unreservedly. Plus, I appreciate the smokes.
Has the sharpest eyes I've ever seen. Would not want to be on the wrong end of that rifle, either.
For a Caprican, he aint so bad. Most of the time.
A regular staple of the squad, she's got a keen eye and a steady had, both making me glad she's on our side.
All fathers want better things for their son, as did Amis Tomak, having no wish for his sons to follow him into the Ha'la'tha. He paid for the best education for his son, Gage, helped him through school and an apprenticeship in construction, and watched proudly as he graduated and went on to a fulfilling career that put him in a better place than most on Tauron. Gage built up a construction business from scratch, going from small jobs to a large company, got married to a beautiful woman, had a daughter, and the story should've ended happily there.
All that changed when Amis Tomak was killed by an ambitious member of the Ha'la'tha, looking to climb the ranks. Gage dropped his well-paid company and sought to find his father's killer, seeking revenge. Alongside his younger brother Jose, they made a powerful duo that quickly established their credentials as being willing to do most anything in pursuit of their target. That all changed when the war started though, and he heard tell his target was killed during the war. His wife and child were confirmed missing in the aftermath of the war, presumed dead.
Horrified at what he had almost done, Gage joined the army to get away from what he'd almost become, leaving his little brother behind. The marines suited him, muscle memory and strength built in the course of his previous work quickly establishing his capabilities. His familiarity with explosives and construction from his company work lent him to become a combat engineer.
He took the strictness of the military probably less seriously than his superiors would have liked, given his background, but his focus when it counted quickly allowed for his value to be recognized. He earnt a name -- and a promotion -- for himself during a skirmish in Cylon-held territory on Tauron, leading a handful of them into a pre-planned explosives trap, allowing his squad to escape unharmed. It earned him a promotion to Lance Corporal and, six months later, a recommendation for transfer to BS Galactica, Timber Wolves.
He has the appearance of a typical jar-head: short-shaved dark brown hair, broad-shouldered and well-muscled with a default serious expression. His physically fit features are offset by tanned skin and dark brown eyes overshadowed by thick brows and the occasional five o'clock shadow. What probably stands out the most about him is his tattoos, perhaps readily recognizable as Tauron by those who would recognize such things, with the most noticeable of them stretching from his upper arm, across his shoulder and halfway up his neck, visible in almost everything but a dress uniform.

2238-03-18 - The End
They escaped the factory behind enemy lines, the winter woods of Picon and the cylon sympathizer living therein, the warehouse, the privations of hunger and exposure, the danger of sepsis, the airstrip of the labor camp at the mine and the besieged ranch, the threat of their own uncertainties and reservations and their uneasiness about what they were becoming, Whatever That Was -- always keeping an eye on the future. For threats, and also in some trepidation about the dangers of hope. And in the end, it wasn't the future they should've worried about.
