    Essentially the character is intertwined with her gun and one could almost say its like the song Pride and Joy, just instead of a man in love with his guitar, its a girl who has a love/hate relationship with her plasmagun.
    That would be great but there would have to be more to her than just a Plasma gun. Slinging balls of ionized death is great and all but you cant exactly stash something like that in a stylish handbag. And the level that Sidonis's agents would be at is somewhat above and beyond your average Imperial Guard veteran. Now her habit of surviving would be a selling point but she would need a talent beyond that.

    ETA: Next weekend. Got essays to write in the meantime.

    Sidonis routinely works with Rogue Traders, how else is he going to get a bead on who's trafficking xeno tech without potentially sacrificing his own agents? So a character coming from that background works.

    Also it's good to see Vincent and Kally returning to the fold

    Re: Drowning for the Cure- Interest and OC

    Name: Rain Potorskas
    Gender: Female
    Age: 39
    Role: Veteran Weapon Specialist
    Height: 5'9
    Weight: 180lbs
    Eye Color: Red
    Hair Color: Black with slight brown highlights

    Appearance: Rain is a well-built woman with an athelic body and a rich olive skin tan. She has developed arm, leg and chest muscles and looks like a veteran guard of many battles. She carries her hair in a short ponytail just above the neck and tied back to fit underneath her combat helmet. When not in full armor, she wears combat fatigues over a white vest and black boots.

    On the right side of her face is a long scar from an Ork cleaver barely grazing her and barely missing her right eye. She has a barbwire ring tatooed on her left arm and the name, Sa'mite on the right arm near the shoulder. On the scar she has more barbwire going down towards her neck and stopping at her collar bone. These tatoos are amateur made and are solid black.

    Personality:
    Rain is a somber person who has tries to keep to herself and out of trouble. She has a few gambling habits, a compulsion to drink when exposed to alcohol, and has a tendecy to lose her temper when provoked. She is a solider in combat and serves the Emperor. She does not think about the enemy in terms of anything else, but an affront to the Emperor.

    Rain only really respects the command chain and her plasmagun, Sa'mite. She knows the plasmagun will kill her at some point and even though it has not happened yet, it only makes it work. She knows from gambling the more the stakes factor in your favor the quicker it will be when they are no longer. She readily waits for the day it will kill her and has accepted her fate.


    Wargear:
    -Sa'mite: a M35 'Magnacore' type plasmagun lovely called Sa'mite after she first fired the weapon. She was halfway through saying a Litanty of Faith when she thumbed the trigger and she ended up saying 'saaaaamite!'

    -Carapace Armor: fully enclosed torso, legs, and arms carapace armor.

    -Combat helmet: designed to protect the brainbucket

    -Bayonette: a 8in combat knife

    -Unused lapsitol: a specialist carries a back-up laspistol to cover for the event their special weapon may run out of ammo or causes minor wounds and makes them unusable.

    -Krak and frag grenades

    Combat Skill:

    Infiltrate: having served as apart of the veteran platoons responsible for outflanking or ambushing Xenos, Rain is adept in covert operations and infiltrating enemy lines.

    Background:
    Born on Costa Cyp, a hiveworld located near the Damocles sector, Rain was a rich merchant's daughter. The Imperial Guard regiments from the planet were of mixed gender and because of tradition and the culture of the hiveworld, everyone from every part of society could be summoned for military duty.

    At the age of fourteen, Rain was apart of the White Shields, a fighting force made up of young teens and it was then her planet came under attack by Orks. Her unit was doing severe weather measures out in the middle of the nuclear plains when the foul creatures completely destroyed Chulopa Hive with rogue metors crashing to the surface and began to assault the remaining four Hives on Costa Cyp. It was during this conflict, Rain was apart of a few Whiteshield units that withheld Ork attacks until Space Marines from the Red Swords 4th company arrived to free the planet.

    The following year the Imperium deemed Costa Cyp was to found another Imperial Guard Regiment and Rain Potorskas was apart of the 76th Costa Cyp Regiment and assigned her first and only plasmagun, sa'mite. From the age of nineteen, she has served in countless battles and after the Tau had destroyed more than eighty-five percent of her original regiment, she was re-assigned into the Costa Cyp 59th regiment.

    With the 59th, she fought the Orks and was apart of a campaign of newly revealed worlds that an Ork warboss had called home. It became a brutal meatgrinder of a campaign and even though she was one of the few to survive the 59th was also dismantled. From the original 59th, only seven remained and from the 76th, only two, Rain and another. Rain was about to be reformed into another regiment when she was snatched up by an Inquisitor for the Ordo Xenos.

    She was apart of a daring raid against an Ork Chieftain's encampment that was stragetically held against the Imperial advance. The Inquisitor in charge of the mission had chosen her because of her combat experience and her field expertise. Upon reaching the encampment, it turned the Ork Warboss was at the site and as if the Inquisitor knew along re-directed the forces quickly to assassinate the Warboss. It was a gruesome affair that upon killing the Warboss, the whole camp became a nightmare and the Inquisitor with his retinue and Rain fought their way out of.

    Only the Inquisitor and Rain survived and instead of having her mind wiped, she was processed into the Inquisition warmachine. She has been employed by Lord Inquisitor Sidonis and she has never looked back. Rain does not view an end to the Imperial grinder and until she meets her fate, she will not back down in front of the enemy. No matter what Sidonis throws her into, she sticks to her faith and trust in the Emperor.

    The relationship between her plasmagun and herself can be odd at times with her talking to the weapon like a best friend and she can even be found arguing with the gun. To her sa'mite is alive and it communicates with her in subtle ways, but she does not openly claim the weapon is alive for she is not that crazy. She has a deadly accuracy with the years of experience with the plasmagun and has a way of knowing when to stop firing the plasmagun before it overheats. Not once has she allowed a Tech Priest to clean, repair or rejuvenate the weapon and claims to allow a Tech Priest to touch it will only ruin the good fortune of it not blowing up.


    -Hope this works. A veteran weapon specialist with a good amount of decades fighting Xenos and can infiltrate.

    Looks good. To be honest the image that snaps to my mind is my aunt WITH A PLASMA GUN. The physical description other than the scar and tattoos are the spitting image of her.

    I'd almost think that they would have a "whatever" policy. I dont think they care what people are into as long as they're willing to grab a rifle and shoot bad guys. I dont think the Imperial Guard really worries about its image in the Imperial Media and is more interested in putting bodies on the ground than maintaining some sort of pro-masculine dogma.

    I'm sure the guard is more of a "We don't care, now go into the slaughterhouse!"

    Re: Drowning for the Cure- Interest and OC

    Just remember to take your NBC suits down with you.

    EDIT - Marc's new profile. Probably the longest background section I've ever written, but a lot happened in Pembroke It's as much to get it straight in my own head as for anyone else.

    Seeing as how plenty of people seem to have the team's "badass" bases covered, I'll draw on Marc's PI background and go for "sneaky". Let's see how many of the gadgets he actually uses.

    Name: Marcus ďMarcĒ Black
    Age: 31
    Occupation: Investigator

    Family:
    + Father, Varrius Black, 52, enforcer Ė invalided out of active service following injury during secessionist rebellion, now returned to duty in Decker Hive following augmetic surgery.
    + Mother, Cassandria Black, deceased, victim of Makitaís great hive plague.
    + Sister, Kelly Black, 30, former enforcer (verispex division), now a member of Sidonisí analysis and prosecutions team.

    Personality: Marc has an analytical mind and a talent for piecing together information. With his employment with the inquisition now out in the open, he is considerably more social, while remaining businesslike when on mission. He still hates to leave a job unfinished, which is why the unconfirmed death of the heretic Arcolin DeRei irks him to this day. Although he is a caring man when it comes to his family, he has always had a certain ruthlessness about him, and this has only grown more pronounced during his time with the inquisition.

    Physical Description: Marc is 6'1 and of medium build, with short dark hair and green eyes. He is usually cleanshaven. He has unremarkable features and barring short periods of tan from missions to warmer climates his skin is the typical pale of a hive-dweller. He has entrance and exit scars on his right leg, courtesy of Major Al-Omar during the Pembroke case, which have healed up well but still give him some pain during colder weather.

    Equipment: Marcís primary talent has always been investigation and his equipment reflects this, although now he is backed up by the full financial weight of an inquisitor lord. Although he is an investigator first, his additional training with the inquisition has made him more than proficient at self-defence.

    + Spy drone - A mechanical construct similar in size and appearance to a common fly, which can transmit visual and auger data back to Marcís PDA.
    + Inquisitorial signet ring - A microprocessor containing inquisitorial overrides, worm programs and encryption-breakers tailored to whatever cogitator systems are used by the locals.
    + Micro-needler - Mounted in another ring, it generally contains one dose each of Paralytum, Veritas and Etum Omega.
    + Triplex-Phall pattern laspistol - A relic of Marcís undercover work with inquisitor de Shilo, it usually resides in a shoulder holster.
    + Military-grade flak vest - More often than not cast as the ďfaceĒ of the team, Marc needs something that will both protect him and fit relatively inconspicuously under a business suit.
    + Heavy equipment - In more hostile environments Marc carries an autogun and carapace armour (similar to Vincent's but with an auspex suite rather than a webber), but as this is situational gear I will detail it as appropriate.

    History: Marc was born into a family of mid-level hivers with a strong tradition of service in the local enforcers. His father was a front-line sergeant, preferring to remain in the field despite offers of transfer or promotion, while Marc rose up through the CID branch and his younger sister Kelly went into Verispex. Marcís father was invalided out of service two years ago, losing both his legs to an IED planted by secessionist rebels. The rebelsí direct targeting of government and law enforcement assets in an attempt to destabilise Imperial rule drew the intention of the local Inquisition, and Marc was only too happy to assist them in their investigations. After playing a vital role in locating and apprehending a secessionist cell, Marc was brought to the attention of the inquisitor supervising the investigation Ė one Eran de Shilo. He was subsequently recruited, given additional training, and maintained as an unofficial agent in de Shiloís staff. As far as everyone else knew he had simply gone freelance Ė a cover story that strained relations with his highly dutiful father.

    Five years ago, Marc was ordered by de Shilo to join up with Franklin Priest and his group to hunt down Lucius Pembroke, a rogue inquisition agent who unknown to Marc and even de Shilo, was infected with malignant Cítan necrodermis. Despite his inquisition training, Marc quickly found himself in over his head. Another inquisitor, Nasreen Massani, was also after Pembroke and was willing to go through anyone from civilians to hive arbitrators to get at him. Marcís team barely escaped from Daxos - Massaniís gene-augmented electro priest - to recover Pembroke, and relations within the team itself were frayed due to Marcís suspicion of one of his associates, ex-arbitrator Arcolin DeRei.

    The teamís attempts to escape and find out more about their pursuers resulted in a bloody firefight uphive. Marc was shot and wounded by Major Kadath Al-Omar, Massaniís prime hunter, and had to be evacuated to a Medicae hospice. While he was there, Houseman - another of Massaniís agents - made an attempt on his sisterís life which only failed by pure chance. Things went from bad to worse when Arcolin, also recovering in the hospice, revealed himself as a Tzeentchian cultist and disappeared. Lord Inquisitor Sidonis personally stepped in to resolve the Pembroke case, overruling inquisitor de Shilo on the matter and leaving Marc without orders.

    Marc later joined up with - of all people - Major Al-Omar and his associate Westin, who had defected from Massaniís retinue following the uphive incident. Under the impression that Pembroke was secure, and bereft of further orders from his superior, Marc agreed to join Kadath in apprehending inquisitor Massani. Meeting up with Frank at the spaceport, they found themselves in a shootout with Houseman and Daxos, in which Westin and both of Massaniís agents were killed. Marc himself personally shot and killed Houseman, granting himself some degree of closure. Failing to reach Massaniís HQ before Sidonisí space marines, Marc ran straight into the rogue inquisitor as she attempted to flee the building, and mortally wounded her with Kadathís Tallarn autopistol. On the other side of the hive Pembroke finally lost his battle with the necrodermis infecting his system, and Marc and the others had to be evacuated while Sidonis levelled Makita Hive from orbit.

    With his home destroyed and his cover blown, Marc joined the rest of Frankís team in transferring to official inquisition service under Lord Sidonis. On the plus side, bringing his affiliation with the Ordos out into the open allowed Marc to reconcile with his father - who has since returned to active duty in Decker Hive, with a pair of high-grade bionic legs paid for by Marcís share of Pembrokeís bounty. Marcís sister Kelly, also looking for a new job (not to mention unwilling to let Marc simply bugger off on his own again), has signed up as a member of Sidonisí verispex team.

    Similarly to Kally, Marc feels that the Pembroke case was left incomplete and during his rare visits back to Solomon he checks every avenue of information he can for signs of Arcolin. So far, none have been forthcoming.

    Re: Drowning for the Cure- Interest and OC

    I always saw my own characters as unclassified in the sexuality department. I believe in that a universe full of killing, death, war, drugs, violence, Gods hellbent on controlling everything, and a fistful of angry Xenos who just don't like you, sexuality is the least of the social concerns.

    Rain is not sexual though, her plasmagun is the love of her life
