Knight - Libra Station Mech Pilot

Leslie "Les" Vine has blue eyes like the ocean, dark hair, and rugged good looks. Vine is muscular and tall, standing at six feet and four inches. His thick muscles, and nearly constant stern expression, make him an intimidating man. He tends to lean toward the serious side, though he can be sarcastic and snarky at times.

Les is good in a fight, and often reacts without conscious thought. He is also somewhat cruel; he is not above insulting people by bringing up highly sensitive subjects. Although he often appears to be somewhat stupid, he has his own peculiar wit. He has played successful jokes on much more intellectual people. Les also has a keen sense of danger and is often the first to raise an accurate warning about impending peril. Les has his own code of honor, and is very patriotic. When he has not acted up to his code of honor, he works hard to atone for it. Les also demonstrates unexpected sentimentality by sending money he's earned home to his mother, Ardent Vine. He also proudly wears the ridiculous knit garments his mother sends him, simply because she made them for him. Despite his occasionally harsh attitude, Les demonstrates that he truly does care about his fellow crew members.

Les keeps a large arsenal in his bunk. His spotless military record and stellar mission performance has earned him the rare right to be licensed to own several weapons that would normally be illegal on Libra. He named his favorite and most powerful gun, a Callahan full-bore auto lock with customized trigger double cartridge thorough gauge, Alice. He acquired it after killing the previous owner, one of six assassins trying to kill him. Les frequently carries a flechette pistol, and has a flechette assault rifle named Lux in his cockpit should he need to abandon his mech and fight in space. Though the powerful "Alice" is his favorite gun, Les favors flechette weapons. This is due to the fact that they are less likely to damage the interior of spacecraft. Even so, they are effective at puncturing pressure suits in space or even aquatic environments, and easily pierce unarmored opponents.

In his spare time Les is often cleaning and oiling his weapons, working out, or sparring. While he's not the most intelligent, he has a knack for machines. He prefers to work on his mech himself, tinkering and fine tuning it to his preference. He works closely with his mechanic team, finding new ways to squeeze even more performance out of his machine. He often opts for greater defense over speed, and greater firepower over fine agility.

Knight Vine is always dressed as a soldier, in his flight suit when on duty, and in dark tactical BDU when not. He regularly renews his carry permit early to ensure he will always have his sidearm, wherever he is on Libra, should the need arise.

Before joining the military, Les was part of one of the many police forces of Libra. He joined as soon as he was old enough, and excelled at his training. Les was often deployed as backup for other officers when situations got tense and they needed someone more intimidating. Though not the most book smart, he showed great aptitude as a mech operator, and was eventually selected to pilot a police force mech. After a few years of this, Leslie eventually found himself bored and was looking to make a change, when he overheard some Knights talking about a skirmish with pirates on the edge of the quadrant. He piloted a mech for the security force, why not do it for the military and see real action. Unfortunately, Les was initially passed over as a mech pilot and instead was made a jockey. He was a quick study though, and many mages hoped to be paired with such a skilled pilot. His rough attitude however, made him hard to work with, and after several mages asked to be transferred out of his partnership, he was given his own fighter to pilot among the solos. In his spare time he used the mech flight simulators for training, but could never pass the written exam portion for joining the Knights. When patrolling the outskirts of the quadrant, a pirate ambush took the Knight that was with his patrol down with a single hit to his cockpit. While there was little damage to the mech itself, the pilot had been killed, and the patrol was now highly outnumbered. Les abandoned his own fighter and used his flight suit propulsion system to maneuver to the neutralized mech. He climbed into the cockpit, and after tossing the dead pilot out, Les took up the controls of the war machine. His natural aptitude for piloting and his many hours in the simulators quickly paid off as he easily trounced the pirate attack. Upon returning to the station and the receipt of the patrols report, Les was given a promotion to Knight due to actions in the field. He has no real career ambition though, and strives only to perform above expectations at his current rank. He is a loyal and patriotic Knight of Libra's Space Navy.

-Favorite Gun-
Callahan full-bore auto lock with customized trigger double cartridge thorough gauge, Alice

-Primary Weapon-
A flechette assault rifle, Lux. This weapon fires small dart like projectiles at an extremely high rate and velocity, with amazing accuracy. They are powerful enough to puncture diamond fiber suits or crack diamond fiber crystals and easily tear flesh. The rounds are launched using a magnetic rail system causing virtually no kick, allowing the weapon to remain highly accurate even when fired on full automatic. While flechettes are effective against lightly armored opponents, the size of the darts makes them ineffective against heavy armor or war machines. This makes them a favored weapon for use inside pressurized environments such as spaceships and space stations. This assault rifle has four settings; single shot, three round burst, eight round burst and full automatic.

-Sidearm-
A flechette pistol. This weapon fires small dart like projectiles at a high velocity, with amazing accuracy. They are powerful enough to puncture diamond fiber suits or crack diamond fiber crystals and easily tear flesh. The rounds are launched using a magnetic rail system causing virtually no kick, allowing the weapon to remain highly accurate even when fired on full automatic. While flechettes are effective against lightly armored opponents, the size of the darts makes them ineffective against heavy armor or war machines. This makes them a favored weapon for use inside pressurized environments such as spaceships and space stations. This pistol has two settings; semiautomatic and full automatic.

-Zog Brand Flight Suit with Duralium Plating and NEW Form-Tech-
This flight suit is made of premium smart-tech diamond fiber to provide protection and comfort. Smart-tech allows the wearer to change color scheme, fabric texture, and completely customize fit for any body type. Form-tech gives a customizable option for shape, and style, as well as pocket placement, and seal type. When sealed, and pressurized, the flight suit has personalized internal climate control and life support. The impact resistant duralium plating on the torso, arms, and legs, has limited response to the smart-tech and form-tech used in Zog brand apparel. The diamond fiber crystal visor on the flight suit helm displays a personal hud with readouts on just about anything Les could need or want. This ranges from ambient temperature, wind speed, heart rate, blood pressure, or rate of breath, to the angle required for firing to acquire a trajectory of collision with enemy craft. The built in propulsion system uses pressurized oxygen that is automatically refilled by the in-suit life support system. Diamond fiber is the strongest man-made fabric ever created, giving strong protection against small arms and blades. Duralium is an extremely light and durable material used for protection against medium munitions. Les usually prefers his entire suit to be black, including the visor, but on occasion will detail the plating and helm a different color. Such as red, orange, or blue. While this flight suit is not standard issue, and cost Les quite a bit of funds to acquire, the smart-tech and form-tech allow him to adjust it to military regulation standards of appearance.
