Some Back Story
The Earth is no longer able to sustain human life without physical aid. Those who are lucky enough to have a way to Titan are going to have a tough time leaving. Earth's atmosphere and water are tainted to the point that people are held up at gunpoint for fresh water and masks to make the air breathable. Not only are people being held at gunpoint for that, but people that are so toxified by the air or water cannot leave. They don't have the strength. Others are stabbed, beaten, or shot to death for a blue pass to be able to board Titan.
Approximately, 30% of the planet's inhabitants remain. Thats what the Mother Satellite was built for; To carry that 30% and maintain a healthy food, water, and air supply. It's energy source is an anti-neautron reactor that runs off of the explosive energy of Super-Novas. All that remains is the mission to thrive on Titan until an inhabitable planet is found.
Year: 2172 - 30 years after the destruction of Earth.
Mission Thrive has failed. All that are left are biomechanical pirates, bounty hunters, or just those who wouldn't fit in a good society. We have abandoned that mission and started a new one. It's name; 'Survive'. Not only are most of us biomechanical, ranging from limbs to internal organs; we are what other planets call 'Sevens' or Original Satellites. These are the remains from the Original Space Pioneers; the children, and grand children.
Among the life on Titan are drifters, rogues, Earth remnants (people who's parents or Grandparents lived on Earth), and the similar races of other planets.
Everyone has one thing in common... There are all...
Year: 2172 - Planet Castillo
As predicted, Titan, the mother satellite has sustained life. Although, it isn't the Utopia everyone had hoped. In the out reaches of space, far beyond our solar system, we have came upon other people, - normal - people. Everytime we dock, new ones join us. New cultures. And even though we are nomads, the word has spread across galaxies. Even amidst our own kind, we are called scum, Sevens, or Satellites.
Faux Name: Jack 'Sloan' Stevenson
Real Name: Jack Walden (One of the original Seven.)
Occupation: Bartender, Bounty Hunter, Inventor, Collector.
Race: Earthly Human (He is the only one left, everyone else are Earth Remnants with only parents who were Earthly.)
Age: 103 (Appears early to mid fourties)
Notable Features: Scare over his right eye, bald, goatie, large carry weapon.
Prosthetics: Right arm, right shoulder, both lungs, heart (replaced with arc generator), right eye, brain (posetronic/cyber), blood (nanomachines).
Weight: 260 lbs. (heavy prosthetics)
.400 Castillo 'Peacemaker' - A massive handgun that fires a massive round. The gun's notable features are its magnum-style pistol grip, curved and grooved for the fingers. The actual size, and a small bracelet chain soldered to the bottom of the grip. Capacity is 7+1 shells. This custom made handgun was specially fabricated to Jack's every request. It fires hand-made .400 calibur (big) shells. Originally, it was intended as a war weapon. it's codename 'Peacemaker' was born after it stopped a riot in a single shot.
Prosthetic Arm: An average mechanical arm that is 40% more efficient than flesh and bone. It is equipped with tools, both specialty and normal. A welder in the index finger, and a vice-grip feature for the hand. This allows him to lock his grip on something with non-crushing or crushing force. (Side-note: When the Peacemaker is fired with this arm, the recoil is minimal.)
Prosthetic Eye: Capable of x15 zoom for immaculate hand-eye coordnation. Used in conjunction with his cyber-brain and prosthetic arm, impossible shots can be achieved. This eye also operates faster than his left, so it is usually closed unless engaging an enemy.
6 F22 Raptor Jets
2 Harrier Jet-planes
Old Hanger Beside the 'Seventh Bar'.
Valkyrie: One of the fastest multi-atmospheric vehicles in existence. Valkyrie is known far and wide for its contribution in the war of Degaba 9's blue moon. By itself, it took 14 military bases, manufacturing plants, and large-scale bunkers.
The spaceplane was invented/built years ago by Sloan. It is renowned not for its looks or speed, but its unique structure, propulsion systems, and 'stall' capabilities.
Featuring numerous high-powered thrusters and secondary stabilizers allow it to make instant stops and changes. They also grant the ship a 'shift' ability, a short over-powering of the thrusters to cover long distances in a short amount of time. Overuse results in the fusion reactor shutting down; A safeguard that prevents catastrophic failure and surges more power into the cooling system. Cool down time is 2 minutes, meaning the safest place for this function is space. Otherwise, atmospheric shut down would inevitably let Valkyrie drop to the ground.
When landed, the two flight wings can be folded overtop the craft for easy storage. Although, two smaller, diagonal stabilizing wings are still-fixed on the rear fuselage. Valkyrie features a fully enclosed cockpit pod that can be jettisoned in emergency. It has limited flight capabilities, and without the main body, can only sustain a stasis-level of life supports.
Valkyrie's hardware includes frame control mechanics, navigation systems, can be uplinked to Sloan's cyber brain, and a 'pilot failure' feature. The primary function of the PF program is an auto-pilot. In the event that Jack's vitals flatline, Valkyrie's PF feature kicks on and follows a homing beacon at the Titan-bound hangar for a safe return trip. It's also capable of stationary launches, landing on platforms, or on water.
Outwardly, the craft appears as black as the night sky with a female angel, or valkyrie, pointing to the tip of the 'Shooting Star'. A picture of it is displayed in Seventh Bar. It's a day-time capture with Jack standing on a run-way with his thumb over his shoulder at the spaceplane. Overall, this is the height of Stevenson's fame.
Dimensions: Length - 23.2 Feet
Width - 21 Feet (10 with wings folded)
Height - 9.5 Feet
Weight - Approximately 9 tons.
Armaments: 2 AA (Anti-Armor) 30mm, internally-housed, machine-cannons. (Medium range)
1 Tactical Devastator-class Ion Plasmic Cannon Dubbed: Shooting Star
The Shooting Star acts as both heavy artillerly, and the nose of the craft. It operates off of the same fusion-reactor that powers Valkyrie's propulsion system.
When fired, it expells a concentrated beam of pure plasma. Usually, the shot resembles a shooting star. The heat that comes off the cannon shot is equivalent to 1,700 kelvin. This incredible weapon isn't without downsides though. Despite the sheer power, it can only be executed every 10 minutes or so. After each shot, a liquid nitrogen coolant system activates to regulate internal temperatures. Upon firing, all propulsion systems (aside from the smaller flight stabilizing boosters) divert power to the cannon. Thus, inveritably making Valkyrie 'dead' in the air, during the change-over. Power diversion and firing time is 4 seconds.
Jack Walden was one of the original Seven who built Titan. His work was on the energy source - how would Titan get it's power. Once the anti-neutron reactor was built, an estimated 4000 years would pass before the reactor would need a recharge. After that amazing feat of invaritably saving Earthly-human-kind, Walden delved deeper to be able to live longer. In the incoming wars and years that followed he had to replaced internal organs, an arm, an eye, and even his brain due to battle injuries. The last known achievement he made was the arc generator in his ribcage. This is what kept him alive for the years to continue. (No one knows he is one of the Original Seven. Everyone usually just calls him 'Sloan' but know him as Jack 'Sloan' Stevenson.)
Now, he is a battle hardened veteran who cherishes in the days of old on Earth. During the evenings, he runs a small bar that has frequent visitors and caters to anyone. The one thing he won't tolerate though, is an idoit trying to cause trouble.
I will be updating this every so often. Once we get about 3 people to join, I will make-up a starting-post. Also, I need someone (boy or girl) to be Sloan's closest friend. The only one to know his secret. Message me if you're interested. EDIT: Three close friends attained. Submission for friends are now closed.
