A lesson without pain is meaningless. For you cannot gain anything without sacrificing something else in return, but once you have overcome it and made it your will gain an irreplaceable full metal heart.

β™” Full Name β™”: Nate Loskov

β™” Call Sign β™”: Kestrel

β™” Age β™”: 24

β™” Gender β™”: Male

β™” Faction β™”: The Holy Aegis (Leader)

β™” Magician Classification β™”: Assault

β™” Sexuality β™”: Heterosexual

β™” Nationality and Place of Originβ™”: Russian, The Soviet Russian Federation

Imageβ™” Physical Description/Clothing Preference β™”: Nate is the very picture of an attractive, sophisticated man in the prime of life. With his dark, piercing eyes and clean-shaven, baby-faced visage, the infamous colonel attracts a great deal of attention from admirers. Nate's dark hair - perhaps in keeping with his persona - is worn casually unkempt, falling over his eyes; in more formal or somber situations, however, he is known to wear it neatly slicked back. A great fan of classy attire, Loskov is rarely seen out of uniform (and even while in uniform will often don other impressive accoutrements, such as a long, black overcoat and white formal-wear gloves), but when dressed in civilian clothes, he appears rather partial to the three-piece suit and black tie (frequently coupled with classic scarves, polished dress shoes and the aforementioned overcoat and gloves). It may be interesting to note that Nate tends toward dark or neutral colors in his dress, such as dark blue, brown and black tempered with minimal white.

β™” Personality β™”: On the surface, Nate seems to be a shallow and self-absorbed man, infamous among many of his colleagues and subordinates alike for the selfish and narcissistic aura he gives off. He comes off to most as a sort of cocky layabout, shirking most of his duties and delegating his paperwork to subordinates while sitting idly at his desk with an amused smile on his face as he procrastinates, but quick to take action when it appears that there is glory and military notoriety to be gained. Nate is expertly manipulative and prone to think several steps ahead of those around him, giving him a remarkable talent for making subordinates act exactly as he wishes despite appearing not to have had a hand in their decisions - all traits which make the fact that he has managed to attain the lofty rank of colonel at such a young age a matter of public gossip. At the core, he is a remarkably devoted commander whose primary focus and personal duty is to his friends and subordinates. Though he hides it well behind a veil of cynicism and self-importance, Nate is a man who cares deeply about the people who trust and support him and goes to great lengths to ensure their safety and well-being, even at the risk of his own. As a man with considerable power, Loskov considers himself a protector to those without and acts accordingly, earning the staunch loyalty of his most trusted compatriots.

β™” Special Talent β™”: Eradication of Armies

β™” Physical/Arcane Powers β™” :

Fire Prowess

Even among the elite Volcom Magicians, Colonel Loskov is a particularly skilled magician adequately versed in standard physical transmutation, experimental theory and biological alchemy. However, the brilliant skill that has earned him his state license, national notoriety and the status of "hero" during World War 3 is his remarkably powerful fire-based combat style. Loskov's unique style of combat alchemy is made possible by his custom made gloves. Made of "pyrotex/ignition cloth," these gloves create a spark when Loskov rubs his fingers together, and embroidered with unique flame magic Transmutation Circles, they allow him to manipulate the concentration of oxygen in the air. When attacking, Nate raises the density of the oxygen surrounding his target to a level at which it becomes volatile and creates narrow pathways of oxygen between himself and his target through which he can direct the ensuing flash fire that blossoms from the spark of his gloves. As a result, he can incinerate any number of enemies in the field while deftly avoiding any adjacent allies. The 'snap' sound heard at the start of these transmutations is caused by the instantaneous speed at which the highly concentrated gases and sparks react together and pop. It has also been revealed that Nate is able to delegate each hand to a different flame effect, possibly due to a difference in hand dexterity. The right hand appears to allow for large explosive attacks, while the left allows for smaller, but strong and very accurate pinpoint flame attacks.


Due to his daily regimen of parkour and weight lifting as well as combat exercises and Krav Maga, Nate is able to react and maneuver slightly quicker than the average Assault, giving him speed second to the infamous Recon, Archer. He can scale mountains, dodge in mid-air, as well as do many acrobatic stunts.

β™” Primary Weapons β™”:


A pair of gloves used as a conductor for combustion magic Nate uses.

Imageβ™” Likes β™”: Flames, the Current Government, Strawberries

β™” Dislikes β™”: Communism, The New Proposed Government, Archer

β™” Talents β™”:Photographic Memory, Impromptu Decision Making, Having a Way with the Ladies

β™” Flaws β™”: Conceited Attitude, Not listening to Recommendations 70% of the time, Procrastination

β™” Fears β™”: Losing his Flame based Magic

β™” Secrets β™”:None right now, developed in the RP.

Imageβ™”Bio β™”: Most of Nate's military dossier is classified. What is known is that he is no stranger to death, misery, and misfortune. Loskov's parents were killed in a terrorist attack when he was six; he had a tempestuous and violent relationship with his foster father and at the age of 14, he ran away from home to live on the streets of St. Petersburg for more than four harrowing years. After numerous run-ins with the local police, Loskov was arrested at age 18 and turned over to the army for his period of conscription. Unlike many conscripts, Loskov thrived in the brutal atmosphere of Russian army life, and was quickly transferred to a special counterinsurgency unit charged with tracking down and neutralizing Chechen guerrillas and Wahhabist fighters in the Chechen capital of Grozny. After an incident where his entire unit was ambushed and subsequently captured, Loskov was forced to witness the systemic executions of his friends. He endured three days of unspeakable torture before the Spetsnaz came to his rescue. After reading his report on the incident, an SVR officer named Viktor Kovalev approached Loskov to discuss a new, special operations group dedicated to high-risk magic based combat. From that day on he was known as Kestrel.

β™” Other β™”: Like Archer, he has a unique Call Sign, Kestrel.
