History

Pre-RP

Horatio Carver was born in YE 21 on Planet Nepleslia, Horatio Carver displayed an early interest in military service. He enlisted in the Nepleslian Space Marine Corps at the age of 18, quickly distinguishing himself as a formidable marksman during Recruit Training. His proficiency in combat and physical prowess earned him the opportunity to participate in the prestigious Marine Sniper training program. Carver excelled during the program, showcasing exceptional marksmanship and an innate ability to remain unseen in various environments.

However, during the final exercises of the Marine Sniper program, Carver experienced a momentary lapse in judgment that led to his failure. Tasked with eliminating a high-value target in a simulated combat environment, Carver hesitated at a crucial moment, allowing the target to escape. This hesitation cost him not only the success of the mission but also his chance to become a Sniper Scout.

Given his enhanced strength and heritage, Horatio was reassigned to function as a Marine Gunner.

Skills Learned

Communication

Horatio is familiar with basic operation and procedures of radio and communications equipment and can both make and receive transmissions other DIoN military personnel through headsets, ship communications systems, ground vehicles, power armor, and shuttles both in combat and out of combat with the proper discipline and procedures necessary to make their transmission and intentions known by the receiver. He is fluent in Trade and Yamataigo. Lastly, he is able to speak and write both correctly and efficiently to a degree and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, field communications and is proficient in all rudimentary forms of communication (hand signals, flashing lights, etc).

Fighting

Horatio washed out of NSMC Sniper training. As such he is fully trained in the Imperium’s hand-to-hand and firearms-related combat techniques. He is an exceptionally skilled marksman and hand-to-hand combat thanks to his above average hand-eye co-ordination and spatial awareness. He has training in all available weapons platforms large and small in the operation, maintenance, repair, and function of all DIoN issued weapons in an out of their profession from the smallest handgun to the largest of powered armor based weaponry. He is capable of creating and holding a base of fire, supporting the assault of their fellow Marines, identifying and leading targets from long distances with concentrated bursts and how to effectively combat powered armor and light vehicle platforms with their weapons.

Survival

Horatio is trained to live off the land without resupply. He can make fire, survive in the cold without fire, identify edible plants/animals and navigate with the use of electronics or maps. He is well informed of different enviromental factors and how to return to friendly elements should he get seperated. He also recieved additional survival training from his Sniper training, able to cover his tracks and remain difficult to find while surviving.

Strategy

Horatio is trained to understand combined arms operations, utilizing Navy and Marine airborne assets to support their own 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. He is also familiar with combat tactics and the differences between power armor and light infantry operations.

Knowledge

Horatio is trained to know exactly how any given bullet will perform based on a wide variety of factors including but not limited to caliber, velocity, grain, twist rate, barrel length, material, design, atmospheric conditions and so forth. The calculations they make to ensure a round hits its intended target are an almost sub-conscious process most Marine Snipers sometimes catch themselves conducting unintentionally in their down-time. Psychology also plays a key role in the art of Sniping, with the individual behind the scope needing to make decisions about the ramifications of what happens when they pull the trigger and what targets to engage first, even where the enemies might first start looking for the shooter’s position.

Physical

Horatio has better breathing and stamina management compared to the average marine due to the increased cardio training. He is capable of running and swimming for miles in full gear and still capable of slowing his body movement to ensure his shot grouping is tight (controlled bursts). He can stay awake for long periods of time, capable of ignoring the detrimental effects of fatigue and eye-strain.

Repair and Maintenance

Horatio recieved additional training in weapon maintenance. He has the same intimate relationship with his full automatic weaponry as snipers have with their rifles.
