When Alistair's sister Mia was born their mother died in child birth. Alistair's father Jason became extremely depressed and took up gambling. He soon started taking out loans with the one of the local gangs, The Deckers. One day when Alistair was four and Mia was only a year old their father sold them to the Deckers to pay off his gambling debts. They took the young Alistair and began training him to hack into bank accounts and steal large amounts of cash. He became quite skilled with computers under the watchful eyes of the Deckers. They began to make Alistair a cyborg to make him a better hacker. He was outfitted with a brand new eye. When Alistair would fail, the Deckers would cut him to insure that he learned from his lesson.

Many years later Alistair turned 18 and Mia became 15. After a data heist, hacking into a large cooperation bank account, he found his sister dead in his room. It appeared that Mia had been murdered. Alistair, overcome with grief, held his sister one last time then buried her next to his mother. Grief quickly turned to anger. How could the Deckers let this happen? They were supposed to be protecting her. Alistair plated his escape and vowed that he would avenge his sister, find her killer, and bring down the Deckers for letting his sister die.

Alistair escaped a year later while on a job. He ran until couldn't run any more. He passed out in the back alley of some slums. He was awoken by Nepleslian marines on leave. The Marines took him to the nearest hospital where they patched him up. 

A few weeks later he was on the first shuttle to basic training, vowing that he would develop the strength to avenge his sister.



Alistair became familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, ships, ground vehicles, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. He is fluent in Nepleslian. He learned to speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. The character is skilled in field communications and is proficient in all rudimentary forms of communication (hand signals, flashing lights, etc).


Alistair trained very hard to become the best fighter he could. He trained to stay fit, to shoot weapons, and to punch someone’s lights out if need be. This includes how to set up a workout regimen by devoting at least an hour a day to physical fitness, how to set up and clean workout equipment, and how to properly cycle through workout types to get a full body workout. Marines who only ever work out their arms are punished! Alistair trained to fire accurately, and in the same direction as other marines, on the HHG ‘High Hybrid Gun’, the Styrling Silver Special .45 Caliber, and theM2 Rifle. He was taught how to strip down, clean, and put these weapons back together. Finally, Alistair was taught the basics of hand to hand combat in the form of Nepleslian Marine Self Defense Training.

This is then followed by a course in Power Armor operation and handling. Alistair then was taught how to use the basic trio of Nepleslian power armor, the Hostile, Aggressor andRaider.


Alistair already had a knack for survival growing up with the Deckers. His training in basic heightened his natural abilities.  Nepleslian Marines are expected to know how to survive and live off the land without resupply. Their fourth month of training is spent teaching them the skills to recognize edible plants and animals, to catch and prepare said animals, and how to navigate without electronics or a map. Marines are also taught how to make a fire without any of the usual means as well as to survive in cold weather without a fire.


Alistair, during the second and third months of training, learned about combat tactics and the differences between power armor and light infantry operations. He was also taught about combined arms operations, utilizing Navy and Marine airborne assets to support marine operations. They also learn how to plan and execute various non-standard operations such as commando raids, reconnaissance, urban, jungle, desert & artic warfare as well as starship boarding operations. 

Technology Operations

Alistair learned at a young age how to code and hack computer systems. He grasped the concept quickly and his skills continued to grow. He developed these skills for the Deckers so he could skim off people's bank accounts and so that he would be the fall man if things went wrong. Under the tremendous pressure of being caught, he learned how to hack computer systems and not get caught. He also learned threw his hacking how to increase his own security measures. How to build and manage fire walls, and set up false accounts to mask his own. In the Marines, Alistair learned how to manage his power armors computer systems to increase the efficiency of the on board computers. He even learned how tap into ship computers to either evaluate or shut down the security, check the cargo manifests, etc.


Since Alistair grew up under the watchful eye of the Deckers he learned the basics of being a rogue. He learned how to deal with shady people and steal thing. He can easily tell when people lie to him. He's not a very good liar but he fine with that. He was trained to be a street urchin, either con people out of there money, or swipe their cash off them. He was skilled in manipulating people by pulling on their heart strings. Though Alistair hated every minute of it, it was the only way to keep him and sister safe.

Computer Science
