Ruben tends to focus on comfort more than anything with his clothes. He tends to layer, both from a fashion point of view and to use the extra layers as bandages as required. [x]

G E A R
Ruben's most important gear is his medic pack. He tries to keep it fully stocked, or as close to fully stocked as possible, and has enough to deal with most minor injuries, and some more severe. In terms of weapons, he uses a crossbow and arrows and it's all he usually tends to carry.

O T H E R
Ruben was seriously two and a half years ago in an attack on his squadron, and his leg had to be amputated at the knee. He now wears a prosthetic as a result.

Nobody was terribly surprised when Ruben began to train as a medic. He's always been that type of person to do everything he can to look after everyone else. He was that kid who was constantly surrounded by a gaggle of smaller kids, always looking after them and patching them up. He draws people to him, always has done. He's that guy that makes people question whether or not he can really be that nice, only to get the answer that, yeah, he is.

Joining the Wolves could have changed him for the worst, and, for a while, it seemed like it just might. He became something of a wise-ass and cocky. And while he's still been known to be something of a wise ass, that cockiness is gone, shattered by everything that has happened in the past few years. Ruben's lost all confidence in himself. He knows he can still do his job, but there's so much he's less sure about. He questions the fact he got tied up in the Wolves in the first place, he questions the things he was a part of by extension, and he questions what he can now do.

H I S T O R Y
In some strange, dreamlike way, Ruben can remember normality. But for the most part, all he has ever known is chaos. And for all that time, Ruben has wanted to help. He was the big kid helping the younger kids, and then he was the teenager making sure they got home safe. His parents couldn't have cared less. When things turned violent, they fled. And when they couldn't find Ruben within fifteen minutes, they left him behind. He got home to an empty house. His parents had, at least, left behind resources, so he managed. He had just turned fifteen.

He heard word that people were looking for medics. And, in need of support, structure, and resources, he didn't particularly care what side he went with. Which is how he found himself joining the Washington Liberation Front. He was trained and quickly became appreciated to be a good medic. He fit in well. For the first time, he came out of his shell properly, and his confidence began to build. He was seventeen when it happened. He was beginning to figure out his sexuality and, well, they seemed to have ample opportunity for experimentation. And then a senior officer found him and a trainee engineer together. The officer verbally abused both of them and hurled slurs at them. Over the course of the next eighteen months, their lives were made a living hell. The officer in question not only overlooked, but encouraged homophobic abuse and assaults. So when they were looking for recruits for Echo Base, Ruben volunteered immediately.

Echo Base was different. Different leadership, a different dynamic, a different environment. Ruben had learned to be weary. And so, he became something of a ladies’ man and a flirt. He was known to be a genuinely nice guy, but a shameless flirt and not looking for commitment. This was the image he wanted as it kept suspicion away from his sexuality. He was settled, he was established, he was trusted. And then he let his guard down. Once. And again, it was witnessed. The consequences this time were far more subtle. The CO was aware of Ruben’s history and used it to manipulate him, warning Ruben that he would tell everyone, unless Ruben did whatever he asked. These included unauthorised weapons and drug runs.

It was on such a run that Ruben was very nearly killed, but survived by chance. With his injuries, however, he was seen as a liability and a burden as he recovered. The only reason he was kept around seemed to be because he had been such a good first medic in the first place. Nobody asked too many questions and Ruben was too afraid to say anything at that point. It was the CO who cleared him to go back to duty, even when he clearly wasn’t fit enough. Ruben knew he needed to get out. Not just out of Echo Base, but out of the Wolves. But people very seldom got out alone. When the news broke about Ryan, it was the spark that brought everything together. Jen, Ryan, and Charlie also needed out. It was a long shot, but at that point, Ruben was willing to die in their attempt to flee rather than stick around. But they made it out, and they’ve been managing on their own ever since.
