David MacMillan

A a world-weary gun-for-hire with a professional demeanor and a quiet distaste for the supernatural

0 · 327 views · located in The Infinite Void

a character in “The Multiverse”, as played by SylentStand

Groups

A fledgling private military firm composed of seasoned ex-special forces operators. Provides corporate security and bodyguard services for a fee.

Description

Name: David MacMillan

Species: Human
Age: 38
Gender: Male
Weight: 198 lbs
Current Occupation: Security Consultant
Allignment Neutral Good

Affiliations:
Security Advisor to PMC 'Searchbloc'

Armament:
- Concealed Snub-nose .38 (Extra loaders w/ silver-nitrate leaf available)
- Collapsable aluminum walking stick

Overview:
A tall and lanky man with a deeply lined face and regulation black hair graying at the edges. Built conservatively and slightly haggard from a lifetime of overwork. Despite this, he is well versed in combat strategy and hand-to-hand techniques accumulated over a long and dangerous career, though slightly hobbled by injuries and disfigurements. The ex-soldier is commonly attired in a threadbare charcoal-gray bush jacket and a commercial-grade kevlar vest for personal protection. Stiff leather work boots offer a professional appearance and a stout kick alike. Grown old before his time, he walks with a limp and a cane on a warped and twisted leg.

Personality:
Once a young idealist who recklessly pursued the career of a bounty hunter, MacMillan has matured into a tactful and professional businessman through his later years, though he has not lost his soldier's edge. No longer confident in his immortality, he relied on tact and cunning to avoid tricky situations, often going to great lengths to assauge ill will and maintain professionalism. Now wearied and disillusioned by the hardscrabble life of the amateur mercenary, he has become a careful man who wishes only to see the job through and keep himself alive.

Skills:
MacMillan comes from a military background and was once a competent marksman. Holds an up-to-date certification in EMT training as a matter of rote. Through the years he has taken on (often inadvisably) many foes with unnatural abilities and traits, leaving him with permanent scarring and a healthy respect for the unknown.

So begins...

David MacMillan Unfolded himself from a shadowy corner of the bar. Apparently, he'd somehow escaped notice for the many daylight hours he'd been laying up, through no fault of his own. The bar was merely a convenient place to crash.

David MacMillan detatched himself from the treeline and moved to join the small gathering of onlookers in the woods. He was openly curious now, and even the earth-shaking clash before him did little to dissuade him. Besides, the merc with the long-rifle didn't look too agitated... Colloquially, the situation must be under some semblance of control.

David MacMillan nudged the merc dispassionately. "Yeah. Some rumble, eh? Do you know what this is about? Doesn't much matter to me... Personally, my money is on the elf. But hey, maybe if the other guy can pull his guts back together... Well, who knows? Perhaps he'd like to borrow my piece?" He fingered the butt of his .44.

"Goddamnit, it's true. This place is screwy man... I guess it's for the best though. IWouldn't be half as many people through these parts if time moved normally... Or conventional physics for that matter."

David MacMillan slurred his speech slightly, the smell of whiskey on his breath. "I mean, I'm an American right? Say that guy's from Japan," he gestured to a non-existant entity, "And that chick's from some place I never even heard'a, you know? Bullocks..."

"Guess it doesn't have to make sense, does it?" he sighed in resignation. "Almost makes a guy wish he was back in the red sands of fuck-all-nowhere gettin' shot at by insurgents."

David MacMillan glanced back over his shoulder, head swimming from the sudden rolling dip in perspective. Regaining his composure with effort, he offered a curt nod to the newcomer... before collapsing back onto the bar in private hysterics.

sighed wearily and raised his head from the sticky pillow. He msacked his lips sourly at the yeasty smell of hops. "Sorry ma'am. I don't think I'm quite as drunk as you'd suppose. Is there something you need? I can always make time for beautiful ladies... even porcelain ones."

David MacMillan quickly finished the thought with an easy grin to soften his words. Perhaps he'd been a little too forward...

Glanced down at himself and had to crack a smile. He did look more the part of a wino rather than the dashing soldier he thought himself. "Too right, mate," he chuckled, "I doubt even my wife would want me now. Stand easy, I'm just ribbing."

David MacMillan The lie slipped easily from his lips before he realized that he wasn't wearing a wedding band. He casually slipped his hand from sight and kept on smiling, silently lamenting the loss of a potential prospect. (In his mind, anyway...)

David MacMillan nodded thoughtfully even as he cursed his liquor-lubricated mouth. Words just kept tumbling out: he'd have to shut up before he gave away state secrets or something... Sheesh.

David MacMillan threw up his hands in mock surrender. "Okay, you got me! I'm drunk. Shoot me." his head met the bar.
