Physical Description

Sydney stands at a height of 5'5. He has an average body type with white skin. His eyes are brown, and his ears are wide. Sydney sports curly brown hair. He has a round face, and it bears some freckles.


Sydney is a cautious individual who is against rushing into danger. He prefers to focus on the task at hand and work hard to impress the top brass and not disappoint them. Sydney will try to get the whole picture before deciding on an action, and this is often the case with the other members of his crew despite not being the tank commander. To Sydney, he sees his fellow crewmen as brothers in arms since they grew up, attended school, and later the Marine Corps together. Motivated by duty to Nepleslia, Sydney works to be in his father's footsteps as he fought against the NMX and the Reds. He hopes to live up that mantle in the fight against the Kuvexians.


Sydney Ridge was born on the planet Nepleslia in the year YE 22. At age four, Marcus had his wife Samantha take Sydney and find shelter as he went to help the Nepleslians fight off the NMX that were attacking the planet at the time. The military was successful in fending off the invasion, but Marcus had lost his right arm in the process and had it replaced with a cybernetic version. Tales of the battle told by his father and other survivors of the defense inspired Sydney to want to join the military when he became of age. This desire would be further cemented from the civil war that erupted in YE 29 between the Greens and the Reds where his father fought on the side of the Greens.

Despite the challenges of living on the crime infested world, Sydney managed to find time to attend school with his friends Blake, Gideon, and Wallace. These boys were inseparable, often working on projects together and playing games at either Sydney's or Gideon's houses since their parents could afford them at the time. They loved to joke around with their school bus driver named Mr. Hector. Their bond would break upon attending different universities, but it would be forged again when they enlisted for the Nepleslian Space Marine Corps as tank crewmen. It was like a moment of celebration for all four men that this coincidence would bring them together again. After their moment of happiness, they set to work training.

There were mistakes made throughout the process, but eventually they became fully fledged tank operators of a Maximus RUSE HMBT. Gideon was the tank commander, Wallace was the loader, Blake was the driver and Sydney was the gunner. For a time, the group just performed training exercises, but they would get their chance to shine when their base came under attack from a group of terrorists. In the fighting, their group's tank was disabled, and they were forced to abandon it. However, they continued to fight with their sidearms. Unfortunately, an enemy rocket would cost Wallace his right leg, but the terrorists were eventually defeated. Wallace gained a cybernetic leg as a replacement and was henceforth nicknamed โ€œPeggyโ€ by his peers.

To this day, Sydney is a Private First Class, Wallace is a fellow PFC, Blake is a Private, and Gideon is a Lieutenant. For now, the group hope to see some real action on the battlefield against the galaxy's current enemy, the Kuvexians.

Skills Learned

Communication: Sydney has a vast understanding of following commands and orders when it comes to operating the weaponry of a vehicle, notably a tank. He knows firing operations and how to request specific ammo from the loader, Wallace.

Fighting: Training in the Marine Corps taught Sydney how to be proficient in CQC and ranged whenever he is in combat outside of a vehicle. Apart from his knife and fists he can also work with a variety of Nepleslian firearms if the need calls for it.
