I've submitted my character, although his History is only basic right now and not quite up to snuff (I'm not feeling up to finishing it right now because wisdom teeth), so I promise to flesh that out more as time goes on.
From the depths, I return!

Just a few things about Salem. For the most part, he's good, but unfortunately:
1. The Internationals have a rich backer, but there's a difference between a few high end rifles of questionable legality and a 66.7 Billion dollar stealth fighter. Plus, they're operating out of numerous small warehouses in the boonies, not exactly places conducive to launching jet fighters.
2. What they DO have is: a V22 Osprey tilt-rotor V/STOL, a decommissioned USMC CH-53E Super Stallion and a Gulfstream V jet.
3. If he was cross-trained on helicopters and the Osprey (Which the USAF does in fact operate), that would be good

Unfortunately, we already have a pilot. As it says under Rule 7, we can only have one character for each Exceptional Skill, e.g. Pilot, Sniper, medic, and its first come first served. Right now we have a pilot, a sniper and a hacker. What we need is a medic, an explosives/demolitions guy, a machinegunner or more ground-pounders, especially ground-pounders. if you could adapt him to be more combat-ready?

@TheFinalOne: Good, I was a bit worried about filling that slot. I've got a machine-gunner cooked up myself, so we mostly just need a demoman and MOAR GRUNTS!

@BAWADABOO: Cool, thanks for fixing it. Also, by M11 do you mean the M11/SIG-Sauer P226 or the Ingram M11 submachinegun?

Nope, all good. Although it would be nice if she had some assault rifle and basic infantry training, given that covert ops are a somewhat smaller part of the Internationals' MO.

Oh yeah, one thing, for her handgun, you might want to check this out: http://www.cbjtech.com/sida.asp?sida=2_6.5x25%20CBJ. It's available in both supersonic and subsonic for use with a silencer, and can be fired from any 9mm weapon that's been re-barreled. Seems like the sorta nasty high tech James Bond-ey type of thing that would suit her MO

She was in the US military for about 3 years, so she did receive basic training, I suppose that she also received assault rifle training, although they wouldn't currently be something she carries, I think.

Ahh, crud, didn't see that >_< Which spots are still open now, I see that quite a few that you've listed have been filled. I'm not quite sure how I'll be able to adapt my character, since I've really tried to tie everything about him together, but I can try to adapt him.

At the moment, all that's left is explosives and good old assault troopers.

Ok.... Give me a couple hours, I'll try to see if I can convert his character into either of those. Hmm.... Is an addiction to heroin and exploding things a bit too much, or is it ok?

Pardon the double post, I don't mean to be rude. I have a quick question, could someone please explain the job of a demolitions expert (Which I presume is what you mean by 'explosives') to me? I've looked up military handbooks, but I can't make head or tails of it. I'm a pilot. Explosives aren't my sort of thing, for the most part. I'd be very grateful if someone could quickly give me an overview of the job just to make sure that I'm not completely mucking things up.

For #1, not a problem, in fact an unstable demo man is even more fun.

As to the second, the explosives/demo man's job, at least in the context of the Internationals, is simple: He destroys thing. Be it blowing out a bridge so the enemy cannot follow or progress, rigging charges to ambush a convoy, blasting open a safe, or taking out a door that's too stubborn for a shotgun, or disarming a bomb or IED, the Demolitions man is trained to employ explosives and explosive devices in a wide variety of situations. In the military, taking out bridges, breaching doors and disarming bombs would probably be the most common tasks one would encounter.

Ok, thanks for the info. Will I have to know the names of specific explosives? Because, if so, I am certainly going to bumble off to do a whole lot of research xD Dang, I really wish we could change the names of our characters. His name of 'Lark' was actually intended to be a reference to the fact that he was a pilot, since Larks are birds, birds fly, and pilots fly (Do you understand my logic? No? Neither do I XD). Oh well, I guess we can't have everything we want. Yay for unstable demomen with overly feminine names! XD
