Character Name: James Tesoro CID: 10170 SteamID: STEAM_0:1:28389434 Timezone: est Character biography: Lived in USA for some time before. Dead-ender who survived the initial invasion. Tired of being the one to sit there and take it, joining the CCA is a dangerous bid for something to protect himself with. Not particularly kind, James can only relate to the less fortunate. The death of a friend in a workplace accident is motivating him to put in that application he'd been thinking about. James will be hard to like sometimes but is ultimately a loyal friend when you can look past how big of a dick he can be. Currently 24 with some sort of criminal record - whatever it was, it wasn't bad enough to kill him outright. He might be a thug, and one of the not so good cops, but he's still a human who you can get a beer with and tell jokes to. 1. As a citizen, your character has managed to endure twelve years of the Combine occupation, as well as the devastating effects of the Portal Storms and Xen invasion prior to the 7 Hour War. Who was your character before the Combine? What experiences do they bring from their past life? How has the occupation affected them? James was a poor nobody with little to show for himself. Regardless, he looks back on his past life with some beat-nik freedom through a rose lens. Now that James is more determined than ever to succeed, he might feel ashamed of his old life or regret that he didn't participate more in society. The occupation has been rough and primarily a repeat of the rough shit James used to go through. Strong-willed and short tempered, James will very likely only look out for himself and the few he trusts in a dystopia where you cannot save everyone. Accepted. Speak to a squad leader to get your recruit flags. It's a no brainer; you were only recently in the CCA and I have no reason to refuse you a second time. You can still have an interview for the character if you'd like.
