    Can't we just roll up hilarious characters instead?

    I still remember fondly our Clan Aerojock who was a super ace but failed to promote for all the bitches he was drowning in nightly. So eventually he left and became a top pirate in the quest for more pussy.

    Oh, and the Battle Armor chick with a grudge against all farm equipment.

    For your 10th birthday your parents got you a one way bus ticket to your uncle Bubba's bobblehead factory. Seeing as how there are only two other buildings within a few hundred miles of the factory (The barracks and the Stab-apple cannery) you didn't have much of a choice but to work for your uncle making patriotic bobbleheads to amuse Cappellans everywhere (within three jumps). Your only source of entertainment was trying to guess how long it would be until you heard another scream of agony from the cannery.

    So as it turns out there is actually a real CCAF unit from Fletcher's Folly. It also turns out that they come by the factory every few years.
    After several days of riding in the back of a truck with really bad shocks for a few days you arrive at the 4th Fletcher's Folly Reserves, you quickly start training. Your drill sergeant, Huang Dong Gu (pronounced hang dong goo) does not appreciate your sense of humor, so you spend the first few months alternating between latrine duty and running laps around the on base orchard.

    Combat paralysis is from the flashbacks of when some chucklefuck shot at the orchard, which caused you to duck for cover and land eye first on a stab-apple spike.

    Glass Jaw is what happens when you get severe nerve damage due to multiple apple stabbings near the spine.

    Lost limb is what happens when the cannery accidentally cans an intact one.

    Scout it is. Growing up tiptoeing around exploding apples and dire squirrels makes you surprisingly good at sneaking.

    >choose one
    Special training (real spec ops stuff)
    Spec ops (scouting around enemy bases, minor sabatoge, ect.)
    Tour of duty (Oh boy! They gave you a TAG instead of a rifle!)

    On the final day of your AIT, you find that your locker is empty except for a piece of paper with instructions to go to an old shed in the far corner of the academy grounds. You've heard rumors about the shed being haunted, but never put much faith in it. When you arrive you find several people who you've never seen around campus. They quickly explain that you have been chosen for special training. They don't tell you what for until you graduate almost 3 years later.

    For those who don't get it, Maskirovka.

    I think that is a good place to stop. This character is now 21 years old and just became a Maskirovka agent. I'm not going to do skills because I don't have the requisite 6 hours. He still doesn't have a name though.

    If we just had an artist to make a quick portrait sketch, this would be perfect.

    First name should be something hillbilly. Stevie-Ray sounds might fine.

    For family name, what would apple be in chinese? Or maybe Russian?
