Name: Owen Sturbanger

-Armor on: Whatever people come up with for him. He doesnt really care.
-Armor off: "Princess"

Age: 29

Physical appearance: Aside from his armor, not much is known about his physical appearance, except to those closest to him. His armor is specialty Ranger Armor, made by the NCR, for the NCR. How he got it is a different story entirely. Under his armor, he has an unusually smooth face, and is very pale. His iris color is grey, as is his hair color. His normal clothing is a black-and-grey striped shirt with long sleeves, but has no shoulders, which is under a grey jacket with two white stripes on the left sleeve. He also wears a double-layered white belt, with grey pants and white, nearly knee-high boots. He has also been reported to sometimes wear a tiara, which he claims to have stolen from a queen.

Personality: With his armor on, Owen is an outrageously cold person, with little to no care for anyone around him. He could care less if anyone around him died or not. Without his armor on, his personality could only be described as that of the opposite gender. He shows that he cares for people around him, and tends to act more like a female than a male. He attempts to hide this with his armor, because he's afraid of what people would think of him.

History(which side you’re on, along with a general history):
Owen grew up amongst the NCR, and was taught how to use a gun by the age of 9. As he grew up, his awkward personality began to show, giving him a moderately hard time making any friends. As time drew onward, his strange personality grew more and more, and many of the NCR began to make fun of him due to it. Many NCR officials began to tease him and taunt him, which only hurt him emotionally. Emotional offense growing with time, he stole a weapon, ammo, and armor from the NCR, and took off into the night of the wasteland. A legionary found him wandering through the wasteland, and against its nature, the legionary took Owen in and raised him as a legionary.

As a legionary, Owen started to develop emotional strength and got rough around the edges. He took his armor as a sign of his strength, and keeps it on to prove he has what it takes to make it in the wasteland. Now, 20 entire years later, his quirky attitude still remains, but is buried under his harsh and unforgiving attitude that packs in with his armor.

Posting Sample:
Wandering amongst a littered settlement, bodies laying about, Owen searched for survivors, and any ammo. Spotting a bit of movement in the corner of his eye, Owen drew his revolver and turned towards the direction of the movement, only seeing a tumbleweed roll by. He lowered his revolver, until seeing a slight twitch from one of the bodies in the wrecked house. He raised his revolver and did not hesitate, firing a round off into the body. He then lowered his revolver again, glancing around, making note that there was no movement. He holstered his revolver, and proceeded towards what seemed to be a shallow cave, to continue his search for any survivors. He spotted a child and drew his revolver, taking aim and pulling the trigger. Strangely enough, his gun jammed, so he attempted to fix the jam. The child began wailing, and only wailed louder as he took longer. Owen eventually gave up on the jam, and thought to himself, Hm, I might get a reward if I bring a prisoner in... He walked forward and slung the child over his shoulder, bringing her back to the Legion base in hopes of a reward.

Years later, Owen, now 22, looked off into the distance, then to Arlayna. "...Go scout over there." He ordered, pointing to a ruined building off in the distance. She gave a quick nod before taking off. Owen stayed where he stood and glanced around, being sure nobody else was around. Upon Arlayna's return, she stated, "Nothing but a lot of red stains," and glanced back. "Then we continue." With that, he started off again, expecting her to follow her, which she did. Owen gave a quick glance at Arlayna, and began thinking to himself. She had been trained for years to effectively use a gun and sword in combat, yet all he was using her for was a scout. He knew she had much more potential, but at the moment, he had nothing more for her to do. He knew why he had picked her up so many years ago, but now she was developing to be so much more, and he was wasting her talent. He knew that there was so much more that she was capable of, but he couldn't figure out how to use such talents. I'll figure that out later. Right now, the mission comes first. He thought to himself.


So begins...
