The Railroad Job
This PC is named after a character in Stephen Hunter’s “I, Sniper” and is inspired by Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock and Frederick Forsyth’s Colonel Mike Martin.
Carl is a second generation mercenary of British descent. His father was a mercenary with the 10K Daggers. He was born human but goblinised in the wake of Halley’s comet and Awakened in his teenaged years. As a child, he had been on the scrawny side. After he goblinised as an ork, his physique began to fill out and his subsequent training with the 10K Daggers toned his body and strengthened his muscles further. He served with the 10K Daggers for 6 years. His present lean condition is the result of a long period of small unit guerilla warfare in the jungles of South America during his last tour of duty there.
As a child, he was often the target of local bullies who saw the British boy as an outsider. His strength of character, quick thinking and inclinations towards stealth and agility are the results of his childhood. His magical training with the 10K Dagger has given his adept powers a distinctly martial slant. Early in his training, his instructors had noticed that the small orc paid more attention to his surrounding than his peers, sometime even noticed details that escaped their attention.
