Personality: Zane can be in one of two moods, one is carefree, relaxed, and a bit of a flirt but this is only when he is around a group of people and with women. Usually, being as he has to be around his men, he is serious, confident, and a bit quiet only talking when he has something relevant to say. While he is not a bad guy he has no hesitation when killing people, his years in the military driving him to be almost to the point of ruthless if he must be, though remorse is another thing all together.

History: Zane started off living as a street urchin of sorts; he stole what he needed to survive, lived with other kids his age, and was generally on the run from the police trying to take him in for something or another. That life was hard though and as soon as he came of age to be recruited by the military, 16, he left without looking back. Although he never attended a school of any sorts his level of intelligence, driven by the incredible memorization ability, allowed him to rise above the level of a grunt. As he rose in the ranks he was provided many opportunities until one day he saw one that he wanted and was sent to be a Special Forces operative specializing in infiltration and assassination missions. He became a team leader quickly and spent years doing this, honing his skills and making a name for himself within that world.

That didn’t last long though, Zane had grown up with little and that led him to strive for more than the wages the military paid him, when he was 24 he left the Special Forces, honorably discharged, and moved on with his life. His military career over he found more opportunities in the form of mercenary work, the pay was better and even though the missions could be questionable it didn’t matter, he wanted a better life. For the next year he worked his way up, easily becoming a commander in the mercenary group by the name of Black Iron. When they were asked to go to Verinor he took the opportunity, deciding to go along as the active commander of the forces on the new colony. He was upped to ‘first class’ and given a cryo pod as part of the agreement for going to the new colony as acting commander.

Reason for traveling: To situate and command the Black Iron forces on the colony Verinor and to hopefully start a life for himself since it is a ‘long-term’ assignment.

So begins...
