    Character Name: Robert “Tin Man” Duncan
    Character Age: 32
    Character Rank: First Lieutenant
    Character Position:
    Appearance: 5’9 Brown hair, 165 lbs
    Personality: Head strong Type “A” personality, which somehow gives people the idea that he doesn’t care about anyone but himself. However, would give life and limb for anyone, no matter how well he knows them.
    History: Enlisted in the Air Force as a Combat Controller at the age of 19, served in dozens of classified conflicts between 1992 and 2000. During this time received a bachelor degree in college, but never did anything with it. He was promoted to the rank of Staff Sergeant in August of 2001. He was among the first men with boots on the ground during the war in Afghanistan in September 2001. During one of the nights his camp came under fire by mortar rounds, and was ordered to be evacuated, almost as soon as the evacuation was begun, enemy soldiers stormed the camp taking many hostages. Robert managed to escape this and regrouped a small squad to rescue the hostages. During the firefight a grenade landed near his position and he took shrapnel to his left shoulder while trying to protect another wounded airman. Managed to fight through the pain and rescue the hostages with only one complete casualty, though many were wounded. He received a purple heart and the air medal for his actions. Due to his injury parts of his left shoulder had to be replaced with titanium plates. Was one of the select few chosen each year that attain college degrees while enlisted to attend Officer Training School. He struggled with school due to a needed change in perspective from going from an enlisted man to an officer. Graduated in the middle of his class in early 2003 and applied repeatedly to flight school while serving as a Combat Control officer. Was accepted to this program after a few failed attempts. Graduated Flight school in late 2004 and was accepted to the F-302 program, and transferred to the Alpha site soon after.
    ATA: Positive

    Character Name: Dr. Silvia 'Syl' DeLucia
    Age: 28
    Nationality: Italian
    Character Rank: Civilian
    Character Specialization: Scientist/Engineer (laser technology and alien weapons)
    Appearance: 170 cm (5.6 ft), 55kg (121 lb), short light brown hair, deep blue eyes, glasses. Love wearing long pullovers without sleeves, really hates skirts and heels; always wear a black leather band on her right wrist.
    ATA Gene: Yes, high level
    History: Born from Claudia and Daniele Delucia in a small mountain village in northern Italy, Silvia proved herself a smart girl early on; thus, when she turned 14, her teachers suggested that she study the Classics. She became the first of her class in Latin and Ancient Greek, but discovered that Literature and Philosophy were not her life, so, once she graduated, she decided to drastically change and study Physical Engineering, specializing in lasers and photonics. When she was 21, just one week after her graduation with a Laurea Triennale, Silvia's family died in a car accident: left alone, she moved to Boston, where her only relative, uncle Andrew, lived. Having greatly improved her English, she completed her physics studies at MIT, with a Ph.D. in Physics, and she gained the attention of the SGC's training program. They discovered her high level of the ancient gene, and her passion for advanced weaponry systems; with her good basis of Latin she easily learned Ancient, and received a basic training on Zats (in spite of her interest for huge weapons, she's afraid of carrying lethal weapons). A few days before the Explosion, she was sent to the Alpha site to study under Dr. Clarke. Since that moment she carries her black wristband as a memento of the strength she will need to face her fate.
    Personality: Pessimistic and introverted, but always ready to help. Not afraid, but happy, of learning tons of new data.
    Hobbies: Playing the flute, especially in moments of sadness.

    Character Name: Lyall 'Bean' Benedict
    Character Age: 30
    Character Rank: Staff Sergeant (British Army)
    Character Position: Free agent; Bomb disposal
    Appearance: Lyall stands at 1.80cm(5'11") with short, tussled dark brown hair and bright blue eyes and a perpetual 5 o' clock shadow on his chin.

    Personality: Lyall is a friendly guy, always with a smile on his face. He's a good soldier, patient, well-mannered and obedient. He has a problem with being serious in peril situations and will voice his opinion if he disagrees with something, though not before asking for permission.
    While he seems to be taking it easy and messing around, he's actually a very busy man, always having to do something, working better under pressure.

    History: Lyall was born and raised in Sutton, England, his father a Colonel of the British Army.
    He spent the early years of his life running amok on his parents' farm, till he was 11 and was sent to the Duke of York’s Royal Military School.
    There he stayed till 18, leaving with high grades in maths and geography to join the Army.
    Wanting more than the standard military life most soldiers got, he signed up to join the Sappers, the military engineers, qualifying for bomb disposal and Counter Terrorist Advanced Search.
    He spent 9 years, going from skirmish to warzone and doing the occasional raid on terrorist hideouts before SGC contacted him with a job he couldn't refuse.
    Helping with the fight against the Goa'uld, Lyall gained ranks for his hard, dedicated work making Warrant Officer Class 2.
    During his 2nd year working at the SGC, a situation arose, the team he was with coming under heavy fire from a Goa'uld battalion.
    Ignoring his CO's orders, Lyall and another soldier left the group and made their way round the enemy. Using explosives, they took out a few of the enemies, creating a big enough distraction for their team to reach the DHD and dial SGC.
    As they made their way back, they were both hit by a staff weapon, the other soldier taking the most of the damage.
    He managed to drag him through the ring, the team giving them cover fire, but the man died shortly after arrival.
    Lyall was busted down a rank and even with the death on his conscience, he still believed he'd do the same thing if given the chance, which earned him a month's probation on top of his recovery time.
    2 years later, he departs from the Alpha site to a planet with possible hostiles, returning 4 hours later with a minor burn and a victorious grin, only to hear that Earth is unreachable and possibly gone.

    Other important facts: Has the Ancient gene, but it's weak.
    Lyall has steady hands and a good eye, part of why he's good at bomb disposal. This helps him with his weapon fire, making him a possible sharpshooter, if he trained for it.
    His second trade, Counter Terrorist Advanced Search, allows him to take up an active defence role, being able to detect possible threats and such while off world.
    Due to an exchange his school had with other NATO academies/schools, he knows a little French and Dutch.
    He was dubbed Bean by his father for being short when he was a kid.

    Character Name: Shaun Patrick
    Character Age: 27
    Character Rank: US Air Force Staff Sergeant (AFSC 3D054)
    Character Position: Software Engineer
    Appearance: Tall, around 6'2, has red hair. He is a bit overweight, but has the muscles and speed to compensate for his added bulk.

    Shaun tries to like everyone, but is an introvert and prefers his own company. He is slow to make friends, but is a loyal friend once he gets to know someone. He enjoys music immensely, and loves to dance.

    History: Shaun is a computer geek. He loves playing with computers and writing new pieces of software. He spent his school life writing little scripts for his class mates, including something that took down the entire network in his school at one point - they never traced it back to him. He lived in Ireland until 13, and then moved over to New York when his father was moved there for his job. He finished his schooling in one of the big schools in NY before going to university to study software engineering. He loved it, and although he wasn't the very top of his class, he got close on a number of occasions.

    In his final year at the university his lecturer proposed an interesting problem with a weird piece of code that was foreign to everyone. Shaun only later found out that it was actually a virus the Goa'uld had attempted to infect the SGC base computer with. The assignment was to write a 'watch dog' script to monitor for this infection and eliminate it. Shaun spent weeks focused on it and finally solved it. He was the only person in his class to do so.

    A few weeks after he handed in his solution to his lecturer, Shaun was asked to come in for a meeting. Upon arrival he was faced with three Air Force officers, and his lecturer. Unsure just what it was he managed to get himself into, he sat and listened while they explained that the assignment he just did was actually a real virus created by one of "our enemies", and that the test was designed to find people of his skill level to help defend "the world" from them.

    Having really enjoyed doing the assignment, and always loving a good challenge, Shaun was convinced that this new opportunity would be worth checking out. When he asked, "So, how do I join?", the reply was "Enlist in the Air Force, get through basic training, and you will find yourself there soon."

    So, having no better offers, Shaun enlisted and tried as hard as possible during basic training. Pretty quickly he ended up at the SGC and was posted to Gaia only months before Earth was destroyed.

    Other important facts: Shaun has a fantastic memory for computers, and software systems, but it is terrible for other things. His weapon skills were good enough to get him into the SGC, but they aren't fantastic.

    Character Rank: Captain

    Character Position: AFOSI Special Agent Stationed at the base

    Appearance: average build, 6 foot, black hair, blue eyes

    Personality: not on a case: Friendly, kind, patient
    On the case: Impatient, stubborn, serious

    History:Joseph was a good student through out high school and he went to the Air Force academy. After a couple of years in the Air Force, Joseph applied for the AFOSI. For many years, Joseph was an excellent agent. He would be able to figure out the solution to cases that no other agent could. Thus, he rose in the ranks. When General Blue was required to have an AFOSI Agent stationed on the base, he received 20 personnel files and Joseph's file was included in there. General Blue decided that Joseph was the agent that was the best fit for this position. Agent Laport does not have the ancient gene.

    Other important facts: Joseph only will talk to Gen. Blue or anyone that Gen. Blue gives him permission to tell, about the cases he is currently on. If anyone else asks about his cases, he will get very defensive or deny it.

    “The Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI, or OSI), is a Field Operating Agency(FOA) of the that provides professional investigative services to commanders throughout the Air Force. AFOSI identifies, investigates and neutralizes criminal, terrorist, and espionage threats to personnel and resources of the Air Force and Department of Defense using Special Agents”

    Flight Lieutenant RAAF Catherine Anne Hayden- nee MacGregor

    Formally with ASIS, the Australian version of the CIA. She was recruited by Malcolm Barrett for her joint work with the CIA in tracking down two Lucian Alliance agents on Earth prior to it's demise. Barrett got her into the SGC under her real status as a pilot, but her potential was seen by General Landry and she was singled out for covert lone ops to find SGC MIA's believed to be still held by the Goa'uld. After her husband’s untimely death in Afghanistan in 2003, it was this event that led to her rebelliousness, not caring for some time whether she lived or died. Malcolm Barrett brought her back from the brink on the insistence of her father Commodore William MacGregor

    Though a loner she also works well in a team environment and both Landry and O'Neill had high leadership hopes for her. She was on a mission to secure three SGC personnel when the end came for Earth and she managed to make her way to the Alpha site, where she blended in unnoticed and carried on her work. Cate was due to be promoted to Squadron Leader a week after her last SGC sortie. She generally wears local clothing off-world and knows how to take orders, but also when to ignore them, which has led to her somewhat "rebel" status.

    In her work as an agent for ASIS she had some very harrowing experiences. At one time she was captured and held for 3 months in North Korea, she endured physical torture and as a result she bears the scars of repeated whippings across her back. Through cunning and resourcefulness, she managed to escape. Eventually making it back home, she was tracked down by two North Korean counter agents, they were mysteriously found in a garbage dumper outside of Melbourne.

    Mother: Anne Elizabeth MacGregor, Captain Surgeon RAN

    Father: William Alexander MacGregor, Commodore RAN

    Brother : Benjamin Alexander MAcGregor, Captain SASR MIA 2002 SG11

    Character Name: Andrew Clarke

    Character Age:

    Character Rank:
    Captain (Former), PhD, 2 M.S.

    Character Position: Specialist in applied electronics of advanced technology, and electrical applications

    ATA Gene:

    Appearance: 6’3” 230 pounds. Tall former athlete who has gained some weight in his later years. He wears his hair curly and medium length. He has a full, but trimmed beard.

    Smart, funny, and nice. He will help people out with questions if they have them. However, his kindness ends with people who he believes to either be deliberately ignorant or simply too stupid to make decisions. This quality was part of the reason why he left the air force.

    History: Born in Portland Maine, he played hockey through out his youth. However, though he was good, but he wasn’t good enough to make it in the pros. He took an Air Force ROTC scholarship to go to UC Berkley for electrical engineering. He graduated with a 3.7 and served three years in the air force working with long-range communication systems. He was a part of the predator drone project and was shot in the knee during a classified operation in the Middle East three years into his service with the air force. He had already been clashing with superiors at the time of the incident and was allowed to go to the reserves early.

    He then got into MIT where he got his M.S. in Devices, circuits, and systems and his PhD in Devices, circuits, and systems. He then went to work with Raytheon for two years before going back to MIT to get an M.S. in Electrodynamics and energy systems. An old friend from his air force days then recruited him into the SGC. He was set up to do research on the computer systems of the Asguard, Ancient, and Goa’uld. He was also working on energy weapons and advancement in earth power systems.

    Skills: He is not the best shot in the world, but he is familiar with most SGC standard weapons. He is also familiar with alien weapons due to his research. He is good with reprogramming DHD’s and hacking into alien systems.

    Commodore William Alexander MacGregor:

    Age 58

    5'11"- medium build, Lt Brown Hair. Fair complexion. Steel Blue eyes, solid build

    A Royal Australian naval officer newly appointed to the reality of the Stargate World not long before the disaster at the SGC. He is not a graduate officer, rather he came up through the ranks, until selected for officer training in his early career. He became a aviator, firstly on A4 Skyhawks and has had much experience in combat, as an exchage officer with US and British air arms, and commanding a fleet of ships for the Royal Australian Navy. He has flown the Av8B Harrier, the F14D Tomcat, F15E Eagle, F18D Hornet and did extensive training and trials with the F302 on the older Gamma station.

    His specialist training has been in Black Ops, extensive hand to hand combat and Aerospace Engineering and Science. Has had some basic training with explosive ordinance and demolitions. He is classified as ATA gene carrier B+, possibly equal to both O’Neill and John Sheppard. And like O'Neill, he hates computers.

    Because of his unique strategies and ways of out thinking the enemy, he has was chosen by his longtime friend, General O’Neill, to serve as the StarFleet Commanding Officer until more ships and personnel/commanders may be trained to join the Fleet.Unfortunately this never came to pass as the end came before the Fleet programme could be put in place. Will MacGregor was last seen leading a Black Ops team to a Goa'uld base and has been listed as MIA until recently.

    He had a wicked sense of humour, and was well liked by those who serve under him. SG1 had become a part of his circle in the short time he was there, advising him and taking advice from him. Cam Mitchell has become one of his most trusted confidants, after his wife Anne, General O’Neill and Samantha Carter. Has two adult children, one of whom is a MIA SG member from an earlier botched mission, before Will joined the SGC. Because of his son’s unknown fate, this was also a reason for the MacGregors to join the SGC, in the hope of seeking out the truth behind Ben’s mysterious disappearence.

    Commodore MacGregor has no special hobbies, except for country music and old American cars. Drives a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and is now based in Colorado, with his wife Anne.

    Captain/Doctor-Navy Anne Elizabeth MacGregor RAN
    Naval Surgeon currently serving in Atlantis, pending a posting to what would have been Fleet Surgeon. She shares her husband's humour and takes no prisoners with whimpish patients.

    Anne graduated from the University of Sydney and completed her internship at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital before joining the Navy and passing through the direct officer course at HMAS Creswell. She has served with distinction in Somalia and the Gulf War, attached to the USNS Mercy.

    Age 56
    5'3" tall, slim build. Long reddish brown hair. Green eyes.

  • Princess Awinita
    (Approved by Col Sharp; edits may be required at laterdate)

    Character Name: Xi, Daughter of System Lord Yu

    Character Age: 20 (appears) 81 (actual) (due to home planet length of days compared to Earth/Gaia reckoning)

    Character Rank: Runaway Princess yet hates the title.

    Character position: None at this time

    Appearance: Clicky

    Persona: based on first impression Xi is calm, but also scared, peaceful yet a raging river, her moods can change at any given minute. Based on what's happening around her.

    Skills: pretty much the only woman that knows Martial arts of all kinds, trained under several Ninja Jaffa under her fathers leadership until age 26. Very good at intimidation of others and acting as boss over another.

    History: Born as the direct descendant of Lord Yu and his wife, Xi was abused for much of her childhood. At the age of twelve she went on a yearly hunt with a group of her fathers Jaffa, only they were all slain by several of Anubis' jaffa and she was left for dead. Not exactly the plan she wanted. she dragged herself home, for another dozen or so years she was abused by her father for what she was, but also taught by the best teachers in martial arts, she has since partaken in several tournaments on several planets and has also trained on a (oddly) Chinese type planet in several newer arts known only to some smaller groups on Earth after fleeing her home planet and father at age 31 (in earth years). Since then she had been on the run, knowing that a wrong step would land her in really big trouble, or worse. And Lord Yu wants his child back, before the information of her is known to the other system lords.

    Other important facts: As far as she can tell technology (not of gou'ald make) hates her (Thors Hammer for instance), though she does not have a snake within her, (nor is she a Jaffa), she does have some (if not much at all), readily accessible knowledge of goa'uld technology and also direct genetics of same (Lord Yu's DNA would be found in her system). She can use many items of Gou'ald technology with merely a thought. However she tries to avoid such items as much as she can and prefers staff weapons, energy items and also improve weapons as well.

    Due to a horrorifing childhood, Xi fled her home world of Lok and began traveling at age 36, after training under her fathers best teachers (two of them seeming to be from Ancient earth) She works to stay one step ahead of her fathers troops as much as she can., she currently does not know exactly how she knows of technology used by the Goa’uld. Her mind has been broken via mind selective wiping by her father.

    side note; there have been a few spats of paranoia due to the mindwiping

  • Proxy
    Character Name: Nicholas Blake Connor
    Character Age: 30
    Character Rank: Captain
    Character Position: Senior Gate Controller / Security Officer
    Appearance: Courtenay J. Stevens

    Personality: Like all survivors – Nick had some guilt for not being on Earth at the time of the Second Big Bang, as he decided to call it, and yet it conflicted heavily with his continued desire to remain alive to partake in the great adventure the Stargate offers. Nick has an irregular personality that he sometimes is social and at other times he likes just his own company but the odd part is it is like mood swings he doesn’t get a choice to be social or not. Although he can fight it but it takes a lot of energy and willpower which can tire him out completely.

    History: Born to Janet and Luke Connor, Nicholas was a fan of the air force ever since he could understand what they were about; he loved watching the planes from an early age. Attending various schools and joining the cadets program in the first year he could, Nicholas was an above average student and took his training very seriously. He made his way up to a 2nd Lieutenant at the age of 26. Nicholas transferred to Cheyenne Mountain and began training for Stargate travel he did well in the flight training for F302s. Passing the training and given a 'go' for joining a Stargate team, Nicholas was excited and joined SG8. He served in SG8 and received another two promotions to Captain. Nick was at the Alpha site doing some extra training when the Second Big Bang happened. It took a while for Nick to get over losing everyone but bounced back and would make whoever blew up Earth pay for what they did.

    Other important facts: Nick has the ancient gene but had it strengthened by the gene therapy.

    *approved by Sharp*

    Character Name: Chris Barden
    Character Age: 27
    Character Rank: 1LT
    Character Position: US Marine assigned to alpha site as security
    Appearance: 6'2'' 210lbs light brown hair in traditional high and tight Marine cut. Has a medium muscular build. Has Hazel eyes.
    Personality: He is a pretty easy going guy and is well liked by the men he serves with. In his down time he tends to be the practical joker of the group but when the situation becomes serious he is all business and focuses on the task at hand.
    History: Is the only son of John and Michelle Barden. Growing up in CT as a boy he always dreamed of something more. Being an only child he was able to excel equally at school and sports. His father worked for a furniture delivery store and his mother was a teacher. He spent a lot of time with his uncle, Daniel Barden, who was a Major in the United States Army. He always said one day he would out rank him. Football was his sport of choice growing up because he loved the competiveness of it. He lead his team to back to back state titles while earning the number four spot in his graduating class. Along with football he exceeded expectations in leadership roles in the JROTC program at high school earning the rank of cadet Lt. Col and being named the battalion commander his final year in the program. He started dating Lisa O'Leary during their sophomore year. Over the summer after their junior year for unknown reasons Lisa decided to call it quits which made Chris work ever harder to earn an appointment to the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. He received his congressional endorsement by Nancy Johnson and by the fall after his graduation he set his sights on the Academy. While at the academy he decided to give up on football and concentrate on his military career. In his four years there he excelled highly when put into leadership roles. Upon graduation he chose the Marine Corps as his destination and fell into favor quickly with his willingness to take on duties other Marines hesitated at. He went through the screening process for the United States Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command where he ended up being assigned to 3rd Marine special operations battalion out of Camp Lejeune North Carolina. As a 2nd LT he showed great skill when assigned to security detail on base. Many times going above and beyond the call of duty able to spot what he felt were holes in the protocols for making the base as secure as possible. With each discovery he happily brought these ideas to his superiors. After a few months of this it started to get the attention of some of the people in the SGC. Word spread quickly about this hot shot Marine lieutenant who seemed to have a knack for spotting flaws in security and how to implement the changes as quickly as possible. After deliberating a bit on the subject and agreeing that his remarkable skills in the aspect of security would be a great asset to the alpha site the SGC decided to have him transferred to the Alpha Site as a member of the security team. As part of his transfer he was promoted to 1st LT. He was unhappy at first as he had just arrived in North Carolina but as he was always a good marine who followed his orders. He was transported to Stargate Command and after completing his SGC training he was informed of his assignment at the off world Alpha Site.

    Other important facts: Enjoys working as a security team member at the Alpha Site but longs to be assigned to one of the off world teams in the near future.

    Still, he was a very good student in school and he was in the BSA till he was 18. Joining the Boy Scouts of America, caused his survival skills to become very good. In school, he preferred classes about computers and other technology. The classes seemed to be interesting and easy. Sometimes during the classes, the teachers would even ask him for help. He went to WSU in Washington state to continue studying computers and was a 4.0 student. After college, he applied for a job in the government. Markus worked in the job for 5 years, then some high government officials noticed his work. They saw that he could hack into enemy computer systems and decode the text very quickly. He is also knows a couple of other languages, such as Spanish, and Finnish. This showed that he can learn new languages easily, such as Ancient. He then was transferred to the Stargate Program. His mother died in the destruction of earth.

    Other important facts: He has two brothers that are in the military. The oldest is a general and the other one is a Colonel.

    First Chechenskaya War: During the first war, Elena's brigade was in the heart of battle almost constantly. There she had honed everything that she was taught of and proved to be very dangerous enemy. From the end of 1994 till the mid of 1996 Elena was climbing Caucasus mountains, sniping bandit formations and participating in assault of Federal Troops on their positions. She was quickly rising in ranks. In the June of 1996, during the massive engagement at the Argun Gorge, she was ambushed on her sniping position by Dudaev's forces and captured prisoner. Elena was joined with the group of prisoners who were held at the Gehi village and was lucky to stay alive long enough to escape. When in August Federal forces were conducting massive assault on the enemy nearby and bandits were distracted, she managed to steal a knife from a guard. Next evening she was able to kill security guards, take their weapons and lead the group of 78 prisoners 16 kilometers (almost 10 miles) through the enemy territory; also, she took some very important documents and videos from the bandits' commander house, killing him in process. (He called her Scorpio for some reason and that nickname stayed with her). For these achievements, she was awarded the rank of Hero of Russia after the war end on August 31, 1996.
    Air Force Academy: Having the "Gold Star" of Hero of Russia, she had all roads free before her. She finally admitted without competition into Air Force Academy named after U.A.Gagarin on the specialty of the fighter pilot. There she was trained to pilot most modern and up-to-date fighters. (And in the academy, Scorpion tattoo had appeared on her hand, made by her friends). Since she already knew flight theory and some other corresponding subjects, she graduated from that Academy in 1999 after three years of studying, skipping two years, and receiving excellent diploma and the rank of Leytenant of RF AF. Elena was assigned to the 764th fighter regiment of RF AF, dislocated at the Perm. However, Chechnya remembered of itself. And on September 30, 1999, the Second Chechenskaya War started. Elena was transferred to Caucasus again.
    Second Chechenskaya War: Since now she was a certified pilot, not just a member of Air Forces branch of Special Forces, Elena flew during the most part of the active phase of war. She was piloting mostly fighters like SU-27 or MiG-29, but when there was a need, and since Elena knew how to pilot a helicopter, she would take seat in the cockpit of the Ka-50 "Chornaya Akula" attack helicopter and join the Special Air Strike Group to deal with more heavily entrenched enemy. After the end of the active phase of war in 2000, when she was 25 years old, she was promoted to the rank of Starshyy Leytenant (1st Lieutenant) and served as all-purpose soldier, commanding squad of elite troopers. Her dreams came true at last. Elena was piloting and conducting ground combat for three more years until 2003 and until routine medical test, that was conducted each three months, showed strong positive result on some top classified subject. Ovcharenko was then called to Moscow.
    Star Gate Command: In Moscow, Elena signed non-disclosure agreement and learnt about the Star Gate Program and Russian participation in it. In addition, she was informed that her DNA contained very big amount of the Ancients' gene and she learned the importance of that fact as well. Of course, she agreed to join the program immediately - it was even more than what she was dreaming of! Elena Ovcharenko was immediately promoted to the rank of Capitan (Captain) and transferred to the Star Gate Command in USA, where she joined the Russian team led by Colonel Fedorov. From this moment, she was serving in the Russian Federation Space Forces, Special Forces Division, not the Air Force Special Forces as during the all previous years. In the mid 2005, after completion of her additional training that was necessary to pass through the gate, Elena was allowed to do that with her team at last. On their fifth mission enemy with 13 to 1 odds overwhelmed their team. Three other team members were killed almost instantly, Colonel Fedorov only had time to order Ovcharenko to leave through the Star Gate. Elena was sniper this time, so she was closer to the gate and had her chance to save herself. And when Earth address would not lock suddenly, she dialed up the Alpha Site and learned about her home's fate there. There she was integrated in the USAF with the rank of First Lieutenant and was now a member of General Blue's forces.

    Height: 1 meter 83 centimeters - 6 feet;
    Weight: 76 kilograms - 168 pounds;
    Blood Type: A(II)Rh+;
    Eyes: Sea Green, with eyelashes, which are long and fluffy, like a spruce in the winter forest. Her eyes are very transparent and, because of this, they are luminous like the spring ice on the river, pierced by a ray of sunlight;
    Hair: Dark Chestnut, straight, shoulder-length;
    General face appearance: Elena has attractive, oval face with very correct facial features. Her forehead is high and clean, she has beautiful, straight nose with a thin line of the nose bridge. She has eyebrows that go like an absolutely correct wide arc. Elena's lips are juicy, but not full. Corners of her mouth are almost imperceptibly lifted in the slight half-smile. She also has barely prominent Slavonic cheekbones. Elena's chin is slightly pointed;
    General appearance: Elena has good, healthy, athletic and proportional figure of 93x65x91. Her body is very strong, though you cannot say this when you first look on her. She looks weak maybe, but anyone who dares to touch her suddenly gets to know her muscular strength.
    Distinguishing traits: The tattoo of a scorpion onto her right forearm;
    ATA-Gene: Confirmed very strong presence;
    Habits, hobbies and other general traits: Elena is a woman who spent most of her life serving in the Special Forces, so she is used to regulations of The Soviet Union and, later, The Russian Federation Air Forces. Because of this, she usually wears her formal uniform and high heels when not on a mission and will make-up herself if she wants to. While on mission or when on post she wears combat camouflage. When not on a mission wears earrings with jewels of average size and value, and a ring or two. Elena will never salute if she has nothing on her head, because it used to be two weeks in guardhouse for such break of regulations. Fluently speaks English and, of course, Russian. Elena can drive a car. From sports, she usually chooses active sports, especially basketball and volleyball, maybe tennis, but also she will not mind playing chess with someone. She adores reading books, but Elena can spend some free time playing video games (RPG, RTS, FPS, Flight Simulators) if she has nothing else to do. Will listen to music if it is not a mission and area is safe, but only on small volume, just for background. Elena completely cannot drink coffee - it makes her blood pressure rise very high. Instead loves drinking tea or soft drinks. She will drink alcohol only if offered to by someone and only in company, never alone. Elena cannot swim and is afraid of water if it occupies more space than it would in bath. She is an atheist. Also, Ovcharenko becomes a bit short-tempered, when someone insults her homeland or when her orders are not followed instantly and without questions, as it must be done. Always carries around her family photo - last memory of home. Elena's biggest dream now - to find the one who took her home away and suffocate him with her bare hands. Also, she befriends everyone she can and desperately tries to create relationships with her friends, in other words, she is looking for new boyfriend: she is currently in no relationship because her boyfriend was killed in 1994. She suddenly realized that it is terrible to be alone when Earth was gone, and she felt sudden patriotic wave of necessary nation rebirth, since she doubts that any other Russians are still alive;

    Childhood: Elena was born daughter to Sergey Nikolayevich Ovcharenko and Maria Vladimirovna Ovcharenko. Her parents were holding medium position in the Union's society, nothing special. Both of them were physicists. Both had job that was paid good enough. Elena was growing just as any another girl would and her parents could give her anything she needed or wanted. Until she was five, their life seemed great.
    When the girl was five, her only grandmother has died from cancer. Therefore, parents left her home with a neighbor and attended her grandma's funeral. When they were coming back, their car got into an accident, which took their lives. After their funeral, little Elena was living with her only alive relative - her grandfather Nikolay Grigorievich Ovcharenko, who was veteran of one of the USSR AF fighter regiments. However, these three deaths, which happened in one week - deaths of people whom she loved, had placed the scar in her heart, which will not be healed with time.
    Granddad did his best to replace Elena's parents, well, father at least. She still had everything she wanted or needed and Elena had had as happy childhood, as she probably could have with her parents alive, but there was one peculiar trait. Because Nikolay Grigorievich forgot stories that his mother was telling to him when he was little boy, instead of fairy-tales during the bedtime, little girl listened to her granddad's stories about planes, helicopters, flight and duels with German aces. When she was seven, she started to attend the school and had already decided that the only things that would bring happiness to her were planes and flight. Elena worked very hard at school, receiving "four" or "five" almost on every subject, especially she liked physical training lessons. Elena also enlisted in the section of SAMBO, to train herself spiritually and physically. She was the best pupil in her school and, in the year of 1990, when she was fifteen and when she was about becoming the best school pupil in district, her grandfather died, leaving her an orphan. By Union's law, an orphan, if she does not have any living relatives and if she is under eighteen, must be placed in an orphanage, but that did not happen.
    Yeiskoe Higher Military Aviation School: It turned out to be that Elena's granddad, who was feeling his death approaching and who knew about her desire to fly, used his connections to place her into Yeiskoe Higher Military Aviation School named after Twice Hero of the Soviet Union, Soviet cosmonaut V.M.Komarov. There she spent her four best years. This school trained soldiers and sergeants for USSR (from December 1991 - RF) AF branch of Special Forces. Each cadet was trained in the heavy assault, close quarter combat (including special version of combat SAMBO), covert operations, and piloting helicopters. Ovcharenko's dreams were coming true. She did her best there and in 1994 graduated with the rank of Sergeant of the RF AF and having excellent marks on covert operations, close quarter combat and piloting and good marks on assault. Elena was transferred to the Caucasus region and then she had joined the 22nd special brigade of RF AF there. She tried to get admission into AF Academy but the competitions were too high that year, so she decided to wait for next one to come. That was when the first Chechenskaya War stroke on December 11, 1994.

    *to be concluded... My char's bio is too long for a single forum post...*
