    This is the bio for my other character CASSIDY EVANS

    NAME: Cassidy Evans
    AGE: 37
    D.O.B: 20/8/1969
    P.O.B: Edinburgh, Scotland
    NATIONALITY: Scottish, British.
    TEAM POSITION: SG-10 Commander.
    APPERANCE: Brown eye’s, brown hair, 5’8, slim athletic build (toned not muscled)
    MILITARY: Territorial Army officer

    QUALIFICATIONS: BA Psychology, Philosophy and Physiology (PPP) from the University of Oxford, as well as a DPhil Experimental Psychology.

    BACKGROUND: After finishing University at the age of 24, Cass went on to research in her chosen field. She chose to research abnormal behaviour and cultural psychology. At the age of 25 Cass joined the Territorial Army and she was put forward for officer training. Which she completed. They spotted her aptitude for strategies and planning and she was trained in this field. Also taking a number of Leadership courses. Volunteered for active duty, when her contract of research ran out, instead of trying to renew it. It was here Cassidy was spotted by the US military on a joint operation. They went ahead and found out more information on her before approaching the proper channels. Finding out she was not full time military but that didn’t really put them off they were impressed and also were interested in her academical background. It reached certain channels and they thought she would be an asset to the SGC. From here she went to the SGC and after numerous training programmes, including the training programme that all cadets are put through when being considered for a place on an SG team. Cass was placed on an SG team mainly scientific team, as a civilian. Much to her own objection, that she got a military placement. Which did not work. Though her military and strategic skills did not go unnoticed. Cass also worked on SG-15 on the occasional mission when needed.

    Cass was given command (to her surprise) of a primarily scientific/research team, SG-10. Though leadership seemed natural to her, she found it hard to command the military staff of the team at first but quickly gained their respect (mostly because they found out that she had a military background).

    Due to an incident on a mission, where primary orders were not followed. The team were taken off active duty and sent to the alpha site to help with the building of factories and towns on the planet. Where they have been since.

    Cassidy Evans is the middle child of three one younger brother and one older. She had a relatively happy childhood with her family. She lived in Scotland most her life until she went to University. She is an outgoing person who has a lot of confidence in herself. Good at most things she tries-except surfing-she likes a lot of outdoor/extreme sports. She has practised parkour for a while now, though likes to add a little bit of the free running style to her movements. Cass was married for a little while to Captain Stuart Phillips. Who she met while on a training camp one year with the TA. They married soon after meeting each other, and things did not work out and they were divorced 2 years later.

    Name: Ilshah, host to A’aaruk
    Rank: N/A
    Age: Apparent age early 20’s. Actual age 75.
    Species: Tok’ra
    Ancestry: Jaffa
    Ancient gene: no
    Gender: Female
    Height: 5ft 10in
    Weight: 210 lbs
    Hair / eyes:
    Deep brown / Long and black, woven into dreadlocks with a leather band to keep her hair out of her face.
    Distinguishing features:
    Various scars, which Ilshah wears with pride, decorate her body. Having been born prior the command of extermination, Ilshah wears the mark of Moloch on her brow.
    She wears a leather cord around her neck with a pendant on it with the name Trinah, written in a dialect which was Trinah’s native language, in the style of a cartouche.
    Service: Joined into the service of the SGC only recently as a representative of Jaffa and Tok’ra.
    Personality:
    Ilshah is relaxed and stoic, as per the traditions of the Jaffa. A’aaruk is more open and genial, but is frequently introspective, lost in quiet contemplation. Ilshah is immensely patient and slow to anger though she is not above subduing people who have become violent and a threat though can easily do so without harming them. A’aaruk shares in Ilshah’s patience but is far more likely to favor avoidance of direct confrontation of non-enemies than to take any physical action against them and A’aaruk’s silver tongue makes this a possibility more often than not. However their concomitant patience and reluctance to engage non-enemies has also resulted in a vastly improved credibility as an ambassador.

    Education & training:
    Ilshah is an exceptionally well trained Jaffa warrior in her prime. She is in excellent physical condition, even for a Jaffa. In contrast, A’aaruk is a scholar, a master of the linguistic arts and knowledgeable in the histories of countless civilizations. A’aaruk is also a skilled mediator and councilor. Initially her skills were used in translation and for the understanding of artifacts and even as a means to make for successful infiltration among the various people conquered by the Goa’uld. Recently her skills have been turned to use in improving communication between the very different and increasingly numerous, peoples who have begun to unite in the effort to undo the evils the Goa’uld have inflicted upon so many worlds.


    Appearance:
    Like most Jaffa, Ilshah is in good physical condition though it would be more accurate to describe her condition as phenomenal. She is attractive, but not so much as is typical of Tok’ra hosts or even the Jaffa as a people. It would be more accurate to describe her as impressive. She is incredibly muscular and she moves with confidence and precision.

    Ilshah enjoys the best of both worlds; she has the supreme physical training and conditioning of the best Jaffa warriors, and shares her mind with a Tok'ra who is immensely educated and knowledgeable. Ilshah trusts in A’aaruk’s judgment and knows that A’aaruk is far more knowledgeable and wiser than she and when they speak it is most frequently as A’aaruk. However A’aaruk is cautious not to presume and allows Ilshah more leeway than even most Tok’ra, knowing that she owes much to Ilshah. Most frequently when there is a dispute between the two, A’aaruk differs to her host.


    Background (condensed):
    Ilshah was a Jaffa resistance fighter who was gravely wounded along with a Tok’ra agent A’aaruk, on a mission to secure information, technology and free prisoners. In the end the Tok’ra’s host was dying and Ilshah’s symbiote had been destroyed and between them they decided that for two to live and one to die was better than for all three to die, especially given the amount of information they had procured.
    Ilshah/A’aaruk’s unique condition allowed for her to serve as a diplomat between Tok’ra and Jaffa. And now in an effort to extend the alliances that she feels are in the best interest of all involved, she has sought out the Tauri to enter into their service.

    Illshah/A'aaruk's full background

    Background (extended)
    Ilshah was born into the service of Moloch, her father, Shemn’a, was a mighty Jaffa warrior who loved his wife and children but knew that he may not always be around to protect them given his position. As such, he insisted upon training his children, both male and female, in the ways of war. When Moloch declared that all female children should be slain, Shemn’a gave his life ensuring that his four daughters made it into the hands of Ishta and her coalition. Of all of the girls, only Ilshah was old enough to remember her father’s sacrifice and among Ishta’s female warriors, she was one of the few who did not begrudge the male Jaffa on principle. Ilshah’s previous training served her well and soon she became a fearsome warrior, gaining much standing among her people.
    Despite the constant and deadly rivalries between Tok’ra and Jaffa that have existed through the ages and the subsequent rivalries currently between the Tok’ra and the Free Jaffa, it is necessary sometimes to accomplish goals that necessitate cooperation. When Ishta asked for volunteers for a mission where the warriors would be required to work with Tok'ra agents, Ilshah volunteered. She disliked the Tok’ra as much as the next Jaffa, but greater things were at stake.
    There were approximately fifteen Jaffa and four Tok’ra sent on the mission. None of those sent were of high rank or position within their respective organizations, but all were thoroughly dedicated to their cause. Of the Tok’ra who went, Ilshah would come to know A’aaruk, and her host Trinah, very well. A’aaruk held a position of high honor but little status among the Tok’ra. She often served in unofficial positions as an advisor or confidant of various members of the Tok’ra high council, due mostly to her seemingly endless patience and insight. Among the Tok’ra, A’aaruk is considered to be exceptionally openminded and progressive. A’aaruk is young among the Tok’ra; she spent much of her life imprisoned in a stasis chamber, even before she ever took host. She had only recently been freed from her stasis and the world is still very much new to her. Trinah was only the host A’aaruk has known.
    The compromise of the joint effort consisted of two parts. One, the acquisition of important information and technology being obtained for the Tok’ra, with a closely specified amount to be disclosed and shared with the Jaffa. And two, the liberation of a large number of Jaffa resistance members who had been taken prisoner and were awaiting the arrival of the reigning system lord for execution. During the course of the mission, the necessary information and technologies were procured and the prisoners were freed. Prior to the evacuation of the Tok’ra operatives, Jaffa allies and newly freed Jaffa resistance fighters, it was discovered that the planet also housed a massive manufacturing facility for any number of Goa’uld weapons and crafts. Understanding the risk, Ilshah and A’aaruk/Trinah stayed behind to see to its destruction. The facility was indeed destroyed but not without great loss. In the ensuing battle between A’aaruk/Trinah and Ilshah against the Jaffa warriors who manned the facility, both Tok’ra and Jaffa were gravely injured. Though their enemies now numbered less than a dozen, both were near death and they knew that reinforcments for their enemies were on the way.
    The two agreed that capture was not an option and engaged the enemy forces. Ilshah had taken a staff blast directly to her symbiote pouch, killing the symbiote and causing her an injury that would soon claim her life. Trinah, lay broken and bleeding, turned to Ilshah, her eyes flashed, indicating that the symbiote was speaking. “Despite how my people have regarded yours in the past, your people are strong, brave and noble, and it was honor to fight with you. It shall be an even greater honor to die beside you.”
    Ilshah was stunned at the words of the Tok’ra and responded in kind “I was reluctant to engage in this mission, but you have shown me the error of my prejudice.”
    Trinah, the host spoke then, “A’aaruk thinks highly of you. I am damaged, I am so wounded that A’aaruk cannot save me and we will both die from it. You too are wounded, your symbiote is gone and your injuries will be your end. But you are not so wounded that a living symbiote could not save you.“ Seeing the instant reaction in Ilshah’s eyes Trinah raised a hand, “please, friend, hear me out. You are a great warrior, noble of spirit and mind, you are valuble to your people and to the cause that both our people must fight. A’aaruk possesses extremely valuable information that we gained from the facility. It would be madness to throw away this intelligence if there were another way.”
    “It is perhaps not the best solution, but it is, at the time, the only way that life may be preserved. I give you my word, and A’aaruk’s, that you should only be asked to act as host only so long as it takes to find both a new host for A’aaruk and a new symbiote for you. The choice is yours, but I ask that you decide quickly, because my time is near.”
    For a few painfully long and protracted moments, Ilshah thought and at last she nodded. She drew her hand to her pouch and drew out the dead symbiote, letting it drop to the ground. Nodding, she spoke “So be it.”
    Once again the eyes of the host lit up and A’arruk spoke, “I ask that if it is possible, you allow Trinah the proper rites, she deserves that at least.” Ilshah nodded gravely.
    In an instant, the symbiote went from one host to another and both fell to the ground. Ilshah watched as within a few instants, Trinah died. In moments Ilshah could again walk, and though still injured greatly, she gazed towards the Stargate seeking escape. The remaining Jaffa had split off into search parties and for the time, there were only two guards at the gate. Ilshah easily approached and disabled the guards. Wrapping Trinah in her cloak and hoisting her over her shoulder she approached the gate. She heard the approach of the guard Jaffa and dialed quickly, to a temporary jump point, and hid in nearby brush. Dissabling two Jaffa with dead aim with her zat, she used the momentary confusion to evade the remaining guards. Ilshah quickly slipped through the gate to freedom carrying Trinah over her shoulder. Only a one Jaffa dared to follow through the gate and Ilshah was able to disable him hand-to-hand. From the refuge planet, Ilshah gated back to the base.
    Ilshah explained the occurrence to both Tok’ra and Jaffa. The Tok’ra were skeptical and the Jaffa were angry. As the groups began arguing heatedly, both at Ilshah/A’aaruk, and despite her, Ilshah/A’aaruk left the two groups to bicker amongst themselves, unwilling to take part in the childish posturing. More than her frusteration over the bickering, Ilshah was overcome with the shared grief of A’aaruk’s loss. With A’aaruk’s guidance, Ilshah conducted the burial ritual, for Trinah and then sat beside the grave, humming a dirge for several days until, at the behest of both Tok’ra and Jaffa leaders, she was forcibly removed.
    Over time, Ilshah and A’aaruk overcame their debilitating grief and Ilshah’s body was made whole again. Once blended, Ilshah realized the intimate closeness of the blending, and came to enjoy the increased knowledge and abilities. Ilshah no longer lived with the lingering fear of her own imminant death when her symbiote reached maturity. She came to appreciate the company she had even in solitude.
    At this point, no future host for A’aaruk has been found, but neither Illshah nor A’aaruk is too eager to part ways. Eventually A’aaruk was received by the Tok’ra and began to be active in missions again. Currently Ilshah battles eternally with A’aaruk to reconcile her relationship with a Tok’ra whose name A’aaruk has withheld from her. Ilshah does not understand A’aaruk’s obstinacy, but she can tell that A’aaruk loves this unknown person, and believes that, in time she can convince her to make peace with her past.
    Ilshah eventually regained much of the trust in the Jaffa and her position as a warrior changed into that of diplomat. As a Jaffa become host, she personally understood both sides and both sides place trust, albeit limited trust, in her as a representative. The mere fact that a Jaffa became a willing host to a Tok’ra, has mended many fences, at least from the Tok’ra’s perspective.
    When Ilshah came into contact with the Tauri, she came to know the importance of an even greater alliance would further the interests of all parties. She requested permission from the Tok’ra and Jaffa to enter into the service of the Tauri, to represent the interests of both parties in Tauri operations while providing invaluable information and service to the Tauri she serves.

    Character Name: Matthew ‘Matt’ Richards

    Character Age: 34

    Specialties: Explosives, heavy weapons, defence

    Character Rank: Captain

    Character Position: -

    Nationality: British-American

    Appearance: He has an unusual feature of one blue eye and one brown. He has a somewhat handsome face but half of his left ear is missing.
    Picture of Matthew

    Personality: Matthew is a generally fun loving guy. He is known to be a risk taker and at times does not take orders well, which leads some people to wonder why he joined the military in the first place. He is very loyal and becomes attached to people quite easily. Matthew is relatively fearless and will volunteer to do things that people wouldn’t normally do.

    History:
    Matthew spent the first few years of his life in an orphanage before being adopted by a loving young couple. Matthew found out he had a problem with authority during his teenage years. He constantly skipped school and never listened to a word his parents said to him.

    Matthew spent a few years doing whatever he wished, only attending school here and there but enough to pass his subjects. His parents made a last ditch effort to change their son by suggesting he enlist in the military. Matthew joined the Army simply to silence his annoying mother and father and also for a change.

    Matthew fit in relatively quickly but still had issues with authority. He has disobeyed orders on several occasions; which has hindered his advancement in rank somewhat and given him a slightly bad reputation among other things. Matthew was recently recruited to the SGC partly because of his somewhat unorthodox way of thinking and skill in his chosen field. He was found to have the Ancient gene but has limited contol over their technology.

    Gen Blue, Why? Did I apply to the wrong person? I checked the requirements and it said that I could either apply to Col Sharp or Gen blue. I hope haven’t done something wrong. If I have then I’ll take my bio down and re-apply to Col Sharp.

    Sorry for messing up.

    Earth Symbol Re: Biographies

    Name: Nathaniel James Finch Nickname: Finch

    Character Age: 26

    Character Rank: First Lieutenant

    Nationality: American, Naturalized Irish immigrant since age 9

    Character Position: as yet unassigned to an SG team, Cultural Anthropologist, Ancient/ Lantean Specialist and current acting Alpha Site Base Chaplain when not serving off world. Religion: Irish Catholic, also known as "Party Catholic" while the core beleifs are the same as mainstream Roman Catholocism, the Irish tend to be far more free with the sacramental wine and worry much more about wether a person is doing good in their life than what god they choose to follow.

    Appearance: Height: 5'7", Weight: 170#, Build: Athletic w29 b18 c41 , Hair: Brown, short-cropped with sideburns, Eyes: Green. (resembles shawn ashmore... plus about 20-30 pounds) Nat is compact and catlike, often sneaking up on people without quite intending to do so. Distinguishing Marks: A small nick in his left ear, just above the lobe. An armband tattoo of the destroyed Earth gate’s address done by a Jaffa in poured silver on the right.

    Personality: Nathaniel is not by any means someone that would have been expected to join any branch of the military. Nat is energetic and outgoing, slow to anger and quick to forgive. Cautious to a fault Nat is loath to act before thinking things through logically, which sometimes gets him into trouble, especially when decisive action is required. And when the unthinkable happens and things go wrong as they sometimes do the "No one gets left behind" rule will be thrown everywhere it can be until all options are exausted. He is always on the go, unable to sit in one place for too long, causing many to view him as being a bit manic, but his fidgeting is more based in his active background, he's just not used to being at rest.

    History: Born on the first of may 1980 to Barbara Jean Eyde (Ire.) and Colin James Finch (GB) Nathaniel moved with his parents to Quebec, Canada at age three and finally to Boston, Massachusetts at age 5. Nat never had any plans of joining the military, let alone the SGC, but the world has a funny was of leading you places you never expected to go. Throughout High School and College Nat was extremely active in academics and sports, excelling in history and language studies in class and participating in Track and field sports as well as fencing outside the classroom. It was right after High School that Nat chose to join the Air Force as a way to see the world, not to mention help pay off some of the expenses of his continuing education. Straight away he enrolled as an Ancient History major (ancient earth history) with a dual minor in the more specific fields of Ancient Culture and Theology. Upon the end of his initial 4 year enlistment Nat re-enlisted to go to officers school.With his grounding in history and archaeology it was not long after finishing officers school that he was transferred to the SGC in 2002. Once he arrived at the SGC Nathaniel began to study in earnest the history of the Ancients themselves, the gate builders. His education had always revolved around ancient studies, but that was the study of ancient Earth history, he now had access to something far different. In the year 2005, just shortly before the destruction of the Cheyenne Mountain Complex Nathaniel finished His M.A. in Ancient/ Lantean studies, and finished a B.A. in Theology after continuing on with his minors as well. Nathaniel can as a result of his studies read and write Lantean and can understand most of the spoken language clearly, but has not yet mastered speaking it himself. However he can hold a semblance of conversation in broken sentences somewhere on the level of a 5 year old . Nathaniel is also completely fluent in English, Irish/Gaelic, French, Latin and Italian.

    Other important facts: Nathaniel does have the ATA gene, which probably explains his fascination with ancient history. However, as he has never encountered any ancient technology other than the Stargate he has no idea that he is in fact a carrier of the gene. Nat has been on a few off world missions as a specialist sent along with other teams but never assigned to a team himself. The worlds he has visited include: P2X-338 (the site of the ancient archives, though Nat never encountered the archives as Col. O'neill did), P3R-272, P3X-593 (Simarka), P3X-797 (The land of Light), and Orban. He has requested placement on a mission to P9Q-281, the original home world of the Ancients, but no mission to that planet has ever been approved, the harsh planetary conditions being considered too great a risk.

    Weapons Preferences: Nat is very active and practices multiple martial arts: 16th century fencing (master instructor), Tai chi-qui gong (Gold Tiger), and Kali style Kickboxing (Red belt Level 4 stage 5). Nat's martial arts training has given him a strong fondness for cold weapons, he almost always carries a pair of tonfa, kama or some other small lightweight weapons as well as a tactical knife on his person for close quarters combat. With his love of hand to hand combat and cold weapons and his compact stature it is no surprise that Nathan's combat specialty is infiltratration, any task that involves stealth and speed is liable to spark Nathaniel's interest. As far as fire-arms are concerned Nathaniel is an excellent marksman with a pistol as well as most smaller fire-arms, but gives admirable however not award worthy performance with most others. Weapons typically carried: pair of tonfa, 2 tactical knives (one at belt and one in boot), Glock 17 9mm pistol (Austrian) with two extra clips (19ea, 57total), CZ Scorpion 9mm Makarov Submachinegun (Czech. Rep) with 4 extra clips(30ea, 150 total)

    An updated/edited bio for Major Dr. Gus Aaronson (since AT2 posted the last one and I can't edit it).

    In case you wanted to read it, here is Gus's old Bio.

    Character Name: Gus “Augustus” Aaronson
    Character Position: Major, Chief Medical Officer (NPC)
    Character Nationality: American
    Character Age: 47
    Character D.O.B: 1959
    Character Species: Human
    Character Gender: Male
    Character ATA Gene: No
    Character Height: 6’ 5”

    Character Appearance: Tall, dark hair just beginning to show areas of grey, brown eyes. Aging gracefully (physical state is still relatively athletic and strong) and rarely seen without his white lab coat.

    Character Personality: Tends toward protectiveness of both staff and acquaintances, ready to lend a helpful ear and dispense wisdom for anyone. He is actually rather quiet and has a tendency to fade into the background except when in his element- the Infirmary. Odd personal quirk- he has a remarkable capacity for names and faces and insists on using first names (rather than rank and last) whenever possible. Most of the staff- including the general- are accustomed to this.

    Character History: Gus grew up with as regular a family as you could imagine with two exceptions: his mother was a brain surgeon and his father a psychologist. His childhood years were mostly unremarkable and ordinary. His elementary grades proved to be only slightly above average, but in high school he found his niche and excelled in anything having to do with medical studies. He headed for college with the express purpose of becoming a doctor, and 8 years later upon graduation from medical school he landed a residency at Saint James’ Hospital (just outside of Chicago, IL).

    During his residency, Gus had the distinct pleasure of working with a newly-transferred, one-year-senior resident, Laura Farrell. The pair ended up under the direction of the same attending physician, and worked with each other extensively from day one. Their professional relationship expanded to include a personal one, and finally, on the eve of their certification in 1998, Laura proposed to Gus. Three months later, on April 29th, they were married. Baby Sarah followed nine months later, and little Paul arrived five years after that.

    Throughout his years of practice he was honored with several awards from the AMA. His hard work and dedication didn’t go unnoticed; Gus was approached by the Stargate program. After a great deal of deliberation and paperwork he accepted. Most of his friends and family simply thought he’d been transferred to another hospital.

    In 2005 he was officially transferred to the Alpha site as the resident doctor. Because his wife and family remained on Earth, Gus was allowed weekly visits home. It put a strain on his personal life, but he knew that Laura, with her own personal practice and a bevy of awards on her own wall, was also in the Stargate program’s sights. They came up with a plan- when the children were both out of school and on their own, she would join him. (Laura still had no real idea of where she would be going, but to her it was irrelevant- it was simply a matter of making it through the next decade as a family and making sure her children were well-adjusted and happy and able to make it on their own.)

    They never got that chance. Earth was destroyed later that year, and the loss of his family devastated Gus. He kept working, however, and found comfort and strength in his fellow survivors.

    Gus was recently promoted to Chief Medical Officer of the Alpha Site, and as such was given a field promotion to Air Force Major.

    (( Sorry it was long-winded, but I had to do a bit of editing and make corrections on the timeline. Becoming a doctor isn't easy, you know. ))

    um. yeah. wow.
    Well this is my biography and yes it is approved! Nothing Amazing but done and thats enough for me
    Character Name: Skyler Mackenzie
    Character Age: 29
    Character Rank: Captain
    Species: Human
    Ancient gene: yes, only sporadically useful.
    Gender: Female
    Specialities: Hostage negotiations, piloting, and hand to hand combat
    Appearance: 5'8, Mid back length, brunette, hair. Dark Brown eyes. Fair and lightly freckled complexion. Slim with a lightly toned body. Usually is dressed fairly casually shes a girl who loves her levi's but also likes to dress up and often pairs them with some heels. Usually wears some make-up but has graduated to a refined and natural look.
    Distinguishing features: A long scar across her abdomen(that she refuses to talk about if anyone sees it), and a tattoo of a black rose on the back of her right calf(she also rarely talks about).
    Personality: Has different moods on one hand loves to joke around and have a good time but when the time calls for it or when she's in a fowl disposition she can be very serious and perhaps even a little uptight. She is very compassionate, empathetic and often gets her noise stuck in other peoples affairs while only trying to help. She is really outgoing, loves to meet new people and loves to talk though she enjoys times of silence and solitude.
    History: She grew up with her mom and two brothers in a small town in Canada and lived there until high school. Then she moved to a signficantally larger city in the United States she hated this change and it made her relationship with her mother strained. Though she always had her brothers to turn to until they grew up and left home both of them joining the United States Airforce. She finished highschool with average grades in most subjects excelling in History and English though besides that no great accomplishments. With no other hobbies she started to take an interest in the Airforce with some encouragement from her brother she decided to follow in there footsteps. At the age of 15 she joined the ROTC and started training to become a pilot. She earned her private pilot's license when she was 19 and has been flying ever since. Shortly after she met her soon to be fiance Rick but even with a fulfilling career and a loving significant other she didn't feel her life was complete. She did find that accomplished feeling after accidentally being involved in a SGC mission. It was discovered she had the ancient gene and while later it was discovered she didn't have a strong strand of it. This made the SGC take interest in her after looking over her past missions taking note she had great flight skills which had helped her succesfully take part in several missions around the world and was a loyal soldier they approached her about joining and after a lot of consideration and contemplating she decided to accept the offer. I mean off-world missions, aliens, and saving the world this offered the excitement she'd been missing in life so she made the move to Colorado Springs. She was offworld on a mission with her team when Earth was destroyed and like all other teams they reported to the alpha site and started her new journey in a place where literally her whole world was gone.
    Other important facts: Skyler had recently broken off her engagement before the earths destruction, her job was getting inbetween the relationship and she thought it wouldn't be fair to him if they got married that she still couldn't be entirely honest with him. She still has her engagement ring which he refused to take back and wears it on a silver chain around her neck.

    You can never really know some completely. That's why it's the most terrifying thing in the world, really - taking someone on faith, hoping they'll take you on faith too. It's such a precarious balance, it's a wonder we do it at all. And yet...

    Welcome SGA_Love! Your bio is really good, with one little nitpick (and I am notorious for these, don't take it personally):

    After she saw she was turning into her own mother she got scared into making a change in her life so she decided to follow in the footsteps of both her brothers and at the age of 19 she joined the USAF becoming a pilot and has loved it ever since.
    I don't think you need to have exemplary grades to be a pilot, but you do have to have extensive training. By the time your character is 19, without the proper groundwork, it would be too late for her to become a pilot. (Trust me- I had several friends that had been in ROTC since they were 14/15 years old because that was the only way they could accomplish that goal. One of them is now a commercial jet pilot. Also, my best friend's younger sister is 17, in the Civil Air Patrol, and recently became one of the youngest female pilots in the world.)

    Check out this link- http://www.baseops.net/militarypilot/roadtowings.html - and hopefully that will help clear it up. And if you want to read about Sarah, I posted about her on another board here.

    Welcome to the RP. Go ahead and have your character start posting in the Hangar Bay. (If you're caught up with the story. )

    Name: Lance 'Greasegun' McKinnon
    Age: 35 (D.O.B. 11/5/72)
    Rank: Major
    Current Position: CO, SG-3
    Birthplace: Detroit, Michigan
    ATA Gene: Unknown
    Gender: Male
    Appearance: 5'6", 163 lbs, good physical condition. Short bleached blond hair (natural color is black), short black goatee when he can get away with it.
    Specialties: Pilot/Driver (if it's a vehicle, he can make it go fast), Tactical Specialist, Hand to Hand Combat, Small Arms, can perform maintenance/repairs on vehicles/aircraft
    Flaws: Can become too mission focused, particularly if it involves saving/covering a friend - he's more than willing to sacrifice himself if necessary, and is prone to taking unnecessary risks if the payoff seems like it's worth the chance
    Miscellaneous: WWII buff, particularly in the matters of the Airborne Infantry due to his grandfather, had a collection of WWII vintage weapons, 101st Airborne patch tattooed on his left ankle, along with his grandfather's name, rank, and years of service

    Lance McKinnon is a third-generation military man. His grandfather served with honor in Fox Company, 502nd PIR, 101st Airborne Division in WWII and was highly decorated. His father served with the U.S. Army Engineers in Vietnam while an uncle was career navy. Growing up in a military family, Lance seemed destined from youth to enter the armed services. His grandfather's stories of the airborne had enthralled him from a young age, but his decision to become a flyer likely was catalyzed by the common thread of the 'godd**n air corps' scattering the airborne troops all over the place on D-day, nowhere near their drop zones related in numerous accounts by his grandfather and his fellow 101st vets. One particular incident related by his grandfather, that of a pilot skimming the trees way too low and sending his stick of paratroopers out the door too low for their chutes to open just to save his own butt stuck in his memory, and he decided that there was a need for skilled pilots to cover the backs of the men on the ground.

    After showing a rather highly developed natural talent for driving anything (getting in a bit of trouble for taking the family car for joyrides while underage) and souping up vehicles even if the safety was dubious (his attempt to duct tape a few dozen bottle rockets to a soap-box derby car to make it go faster resulted in a second degree burn), Lance joined the Civil Air Patrol when he entered high school. The stories of his grandfather, coupled with the attention of his unit leader in the CAP caused him to focus and apply himself productively in high school, leading to an appointment to the USAF Academy in Colorado Springs.

    As a cadet, he was in the top half of his class academically, but in anything tactic/strategy related, he was always in the top 3 in his class. Upon graduation, he was accepted into flight school, where he excelled and later went into the top gun school at Pensacola, FL for advanced combat flight training. He distinguished himself during that training, placing at the top of his class, and positioning himself as the second highest performer ever in that school. He was determined to meet the top performer who'd graduated a couple of years earlier, Chris Sharp. He flew cover for a few black ops missions involving combined units of SEALS and Rangers in the Middle East, where he met Larry Hutchinson.

    A serendipitous duty positng caused him to be assigned to the same unit as Sharp, where they became good friends. Despite Lance's considerable skill, he was never able to defeat Sharp in a simulated dogfight, despite numerous tries. Ironically, Sharp was the only one to defeat him. The pair were an extremely effective team, with McKinnon serving as Sharp's wingman. After several years, McKinnon was transferred back to Top Gun school to be an instructor.

    Eventually he was asked to join the F-302 program, where he was reunited with Sharp. His tactical skill was noticed by his superiors, and it was relayed to General Hammond. During the Antarctica battle in 2004, McKinnon was an active participant in the air battle with both Sharp and Mitchell, and was one of the primary planners for the tactics used to defeat the Goa'uld forces in the air.

    When the offsite bases were established, McKinnon was not in the initial group of pilots sent offworld, instead he served as a 302 instructor for new pilots accepted into the program. When the bomb that blew up the earth was detonated, He had been offworld, conducting a training review for the new cadre of pilots just assigned to the beta site, where he has remained ever since.

    During his stint at Beta Site, McKinnon's prankster streak came out in force, largely due to his reunion with Larry Hutchinson. Fortunately for both, Col. Hanes never discovered that they were behind some of their more involved schemes.

    His nickname 'Greasegun' comes partly from his collection of WWII weapons, and for his ability to bounce his finger on the trigger of a semi-automatic weapon to almost make it sound like a fully automatic weapon due to the high fire rate.

    Despite his confident air, and his posessing the somewhat brash air affected by all pilots, Lance is a team player, and extremely loyal to his comrades. If somebody earns his respect, he's more than willing to sacrifice himself for them.

    **This is rough, any suggestions for improvement are more than welcome **

    Because of his engineering back ground and his ability to memorize things quickly he was chosen for a position out of area 51, working with technology gained from the Stargate program. When they began preparation to begin building the Alpha site he became an assistant to the head engineering working on the project.
    During his years of serice he was given several opptunities to join the ranks of officers but declined, he like being among non-commissioned officers.

In 1997 he was introduced to the Stargate Program, though he first began only as base personnel he soon became a member of an SG team for a short period of time, before the Alpha site was finished which was he was transfered to there. Which is where he is now, as a member of ___.
