Character 1
Early 30s
Warrant Officer Mason Ceres, callsign: Eden, is a highly skilled soldier of the Terran Republic. His heart and soul reside with the Terran Republic and he will do whatever he can to help win this war. Eden hopes this dedication will result in his transfer off Active Duty and onto Reserve, allowing him to travel to Earth. Eden and Tiger have worked together for many battles. They are a solid team, but Eden’s belly of fire and Tiger’s dwindling patriotism are creating cracks in the duo squad’s synergy.
Character 2
Early 40s
1st Lieutenant Alix Ronatov, callsign: Tiger, is a veteran of this war and has been fighting for too long. The constant promises from the Terran Republic are starting to wear thin in his mind. Tiger wants this war over as much as anyone, but is starting to believe the vision of the Terran Republic is not the correct way. Though with no alternative, he will continue to fight and die for his people as he hopes they will do the same for him. However, he is simply losing the energy to keep the sheep-soldier persona alive.
Character 3
Late 30s
Major General Camryn Runda is fully committed to the Terran Republic and will do anything for the faction. Off the record, Runda is tasked with ensuring those underneath her are totally loyal to the Terran Republic. If they are not, Runda will, without hesitation, order for a “dishonorable discharge” or set another soldier up to take their place. The lives of her soldiers matter to her, as long as they stay in a state of possible Reinstatement.
Character 4
Late 20s
Warrant Officer Memento Mori, callsign: Apple, is another up and coming soldier. He too has dedicated his life to the cause and will do anything to ensure victory.
