Marital Status: [Unwed/Married/Divorced/Widowed]
Next of Kin: [List up to four 'next of kin' your char would have listed to inform in event of their death or severe injury. Unfortunately NCR requires these to be blood relations unless official adoption has taken place, with paperwork.]

JACKALOPE LISNER

Full Name: Jackalope Lisner
Aliases, AKAs: Formerly known as Lepus -- a request has been made he not be referred to as such.
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Place Of Birth: Rocky Mountains in the area formerly known as Colorado
Marital Status: Unwed
Next of Kin: N/A

Height: 5'2"
Weight: 110 lbs
Hair Color: Red
Eye Color: Brown
Blood Type:
AB
Identifying Features:
Jackalope is heavily freckled and has many indistinct scars all over his body. Of note is a long scar running along the back of his upper left arm, a collection of scars striping his torso and arms, and a thin scar ringing each finger of his right hand not far below the fingernail. Faint notes of scarring are detectable at the back of his neck. A deep but short scar on his left shin is notable due to the pen-and-poke tattoo of a smiley face immediately above it. Most notable is a large red and black tattoo on his right shoulderblade, depicting the Legion bull in miniature, notably sans "equipment" and stating:
Proprietas Legio "Lepus"
Revertere ad Albanus Flavillus
Brutus Pius

Citrio Acaunus

Physical Description: Jackalope is definitely on the scrawny side -- he's very small by most standards, short and thin. However he seems to have a certain amount of athleticism, and passed the physical without too much struggle, though he is not deemed fit to use heavier artillery. His red hair is curly, skin pale, and freckles numerous.
Recruitment Status: Voluntary

General Biography: Lisner hails from the Eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains, having been raised in some primitive tribe he refers to as the 'Talking Hands'. When he was thirteen, Lisner's tribe was discovered by the Legion and enslaved or slaughtered according to perceived usefulness; very few Talking Hands seem to have been deemed fit to become Legionaries, perhaps due to their unwarlike ways but more likely due to a high percentage of its members being deaf and mute. Lisner's father was slaughtered in the attack, while he, his mother and brother were enslaved. Lisner displays a reluctance to discuss his days among the Legion. Evidently he changed hands twice at least. Lisner was eventually brought to the Mojave, where at eighteen years of age he was caught in an NCRA attack on the Legionaries he was accompanying, carrying their supplies. He survived the grenades and upon being discovered was brought to the New Vegas Medical Clinic to recover from his injuries, both physical and psychological. At the nearest opportunity, Lisner sought citizenship in the NCR for the purpose of enlisting.

I'm not sure about this profile. This is meant to be a literate RP -- posting in one to several paragraphs -- and the profile doesn't give me high hopes for that at all. Also there's some timeline stuff...

This RP is set between the first and second battle of Hoover Dam -- so, roughly 2281, when the game takes place. The game takes place shortly after Nipton was attacked, but you have it being 7 years past Nipton being attacked by the Legion -- moreover you forget that Nipton wasn't just raided, but was subject to Vulpes' whole Lottery system. The physical description is more than half not a physical description... I'm sorry, I'm going to have to ask for more.

ROSCO JACKOBS

Full Name: Rosco Jackobs
Aliases, AKAs: Ross
Age: 226
Gender: Male
Place Of Birth: Baker California (what is now known as Novac)
Marital Status: Unwed
Next of Kin: N/A

Height: 6'0"
Weight: 154 lbs
Hair Color: N/A (formerly blonde)
Eye Color: Blue
Blood Type: B+
Identifying Features: Scarred and rotting skin, missing no, sunken cheeks......other ghoul type features.
Physical Description: Tall and relative thin; due to the radiation and ghoul mutation. That being said the muscle mass he kept is not without merit. While not up with the stature of our usual recruits, this recruit (Rosco) shows relatively appropriate upper body strength. Further, his lack of weight (when compared to other stronger soldiers) appears to make him more agile.
Recruitment Status: Voluntary

General Biography:
"We're really doing this then? Okay. Where do I begin? And before you sarcastically answer 'the beginning', keep in mind I'm a ghoul. I start at the beginning and we'll be here all day. Though I suppose starting close to the beginning should be fine. When the bombs fell I was working at a custom car store in what used to be Las Vegas. My dad was a mechanic and I took up the trade.

After waking up from the blast, I found myself looking like this. From there I spent a couple decades wondering what was America. Though at that time it was still very empty. But eventually that got board and found myself bumming around Necropolis; big ghoul town. Though most of them were just feral. So I was only there another decade or so.

Found myself a junkyard where I probably spent close to a century or so building whatever came to mind. After that more wondering, figured I'd see how the world was changing. I fell in with some raiders till about 2279? That in itself was interesting, got to see the gang change leaders 5 times.

Then fell in with this up and coming religious group. Church of Atom? I'm not usually religious, but it was something to do. Plus they liked that I ate radiation like a sponge. I left about a year ago and now I'm here. Figured I'd spend the next few decades fighting shit.

And that's pretty much it. If you want more detail than that, well *chuckle* then I hope you have plenty more holotapes." - [Recruit Rosco Background : Holotape 1/14]

I like it in general, there's a couple canon issues though. The bombs drop in 2077, so 2079 wouldn't be decades later. Also Las Vegas proper wasn't heavily impacted by the bombs thanks to Mr. House (hence all those buildings still standing) so it's not going to be as empty as most places or have that much radiation to speak of -- I'd suggest having your fella from elsewhere, even just the outskirts of Vegas.

I edited the birthplace, but could you point out where I mentioned 2079?

MIKE APPLEGATE

Full Name: Mike Applegate
Aliases, AKAs: Mike
Age: 26
Gender: Male
Place Of Birth: Diamond City
Marital Status: Unwed
Next of Kin: Sherry (mom), John (dad), and his 3 siblings, Joe, Tim, and Rebecca

Height: 5'9"
Weight: 205lbs
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Blue
Blood Type: AB+
Identifying Features:
A pair of gauges in each ear, a diamond city guard tattoo on his right shoulder, and a scar under his belly button
Physical Description: Average build. His weight is mostly attributed to his muscle, however there's no doubt he sucks in his belly for bmi tapes. He has potential, we just have to get him off the sweets. His hair is short but messy, indicating he neglects to comb after waking up.
Recruitment Status: Voluntary
General Biography: According to our records, Mike has prior military experience having been enlisted in the diamond city guard. From what he was willing to tell us and according to his mental health records, several red flags came up. These findings will remain confidential until there is reason to contain him. Overall he shows potential as a soldier and despite showing signs of PTSD and related disorders, he is eager to be part of something bigger than himself again.

I found it a bit scary how confident he was to tell us all of his secrets, as if he has nothing left to lose in life. I don't know what's more unsettling. That he did everything he said or that he seemed happy to say it. Either way, getting it off his chest seemed to drastically improve his training results, and it opened up a window of opportunity to groom him to his strengths. He seems to be a practitioner of his own style of pagan witchcraft, and although his claims can't be scientifically tested or proven, he sounds sure that "it'll help." I chalked it up to a mix of religious superstition and another one of his mental disorders, but if it gives him a reason to fight for our cause, I have no complaints. He can say all the prayers and magic words he wants as long as he can aim the sights and pull a trigger.

All in all, having Mike on the team is going to be an interesting experience. He talks a lot of nonsense yet has a politeness about him that drew me in when I first sat down with him to discuss his background. There's something strange about him that I just can't put my finger on. Maybe it's because I know of his history with drug abuse, but there's an air about him. He seemed to be unaffected by the fact that a war is taking place. I'd say he looks like he's just waiting to put a bullet in something. I guess that's what we signed him up for, though, so I can only say I'm glad he's on our side.

According to his account, he spent most of his early years in isolation from any social interaction. Suffering from domestic violence and being ostracized for it at school caused him to harbor pent up hatred for the world. Leaving his old home and changing religions was the turning point that brought him to the path of healing, he says. Whatever helps him sleep at night I suppose. As for how he ended up here... well, he arrived in a stolen vehicle and that's why he ended up in my office.

I am still reeling over some of the things he told me in confidence. Things I will keep secret for now. Let's just hope he gets along with his squad and keeps his aggression in check. Why did I give him over to the army? Why not? If he doesn't die out there maybe I'll see him on the news.

General Biography: According to our records, Mike has prior military experience having been enlisted in the navy for a single term. From what he was willing to tell us and according to his mental health records, several red flags came up. These findings will remain confidential until there is reason to contain him. Overall he shows potential as a soldier and despite showing signs of PTSD and related disorders, he is eager to be part of something bigger than himself again.

Things as they come up:

New Jersey? What brought your char all the way to the other coast? What navy? Enclave has a Navy, but NCR doesn't have one worth speaking of -- and if they did, it's all the way on the west coast, not anywhere near New Jersey.

The specific mention of 'bombs' makes me need to note, this RP is set roughly 200 years after the bombs dropped. It's the post-apocalypse. Happily, nuclear bombs aren't really a threat in Fallout, instead it's all the... well... fallout, literal and figurative, from after the bombs dropped that you have to worry about.

If he went to school as a kid, this implies he was raised in a somewhat "civilized" area that still has... school. NCR would certainly fit, but not a lot of other places would. I'm kind of left confused.

Oh ok. I read the other character bios and assumed there were bombs. I can fix the bio accordingly.

I'm talking about the united states navy, unless I just don't understand the universe. As for new jersey, I thought why not, that's where I was born and it'll probably make my character a wild card to come from a far away place.

Yeah, if I messed up, can u help me tweak it? I'm sure I don't have to change much to make it acceptable.

Ah, I see, I see! Ghouls have been around often for hundreds of years, and many have been around since before the war and were turned *into* ghouls by the bombs' radiation (hence being over 200 years old). I take it you're not super familiar with Fallout lore? That's all right, though it may make things difficult for you when chars are naturally going to be discussing pieces of the lore very frequently.

I'm afraid you may be pretty confused about the universe this RP is set in in general; the United States, as such, hasn't existed since 2077 -- and this RP is set in 2281. Even then, in the Fallout Universe, history starts diverging pretty seriously starting in 1945. It's best described as "retro-futuristic" -- that is, the future took on the traits that people in the 40s and 50s assumed it would in aesthetics as well as social norms. I have the greatest sympathy for people entering a lore they don't know much about and trying anyhow, esp. when showing this much enthusiasm. Let me try to sum up the location we're at and factions at work, and see if you're still interested.

This RP is set in Nevada, at an NCR military installation which is both a barracks and boot camp. The NCR is short for the New California Republic -- it's a highly beaurocratic, theoretically democratic society which is in many ways like the US, especially in the 40s and 50s. NCR is mostly what was formerly California, but they like to spread out and seize territory, and can't resist an excuse to do so. It is probably the one civilization most similar to a modern one.

Outside of the NCR, the factions at play include:

Various small tribes -- most post-apocalyptic people are in gangs or tribes of some kind, though many wouldn't call it that, and tribe is really just the name for a civilization too small in number to count as a nation.

Caesar's Legion, more commonly referred to as just "The Legion", a highly dangerous, extremely and exclusively militaristic faction based loosely off of Ancient Rome and led by a man calling himself Caesar. They speak English and Latin. Legion is the primary antagonist of the NCR at present; their territory includes Arizona, part of New Mexico, part of Colorado, and part of Utah. They are making moves into Nevada, just as NCR have. Legion treats those it encounters in one of three ways:
1 - Slaughter. Grown men and those who get in the way are typically killed.
2 - Enslavement. The majority of women Legion encounters are enslaved; those who aren't are slaughtered. There are no free women in Legion. Some men are also enslaved, though typically those too weak or old to be deemed a threat.
3 - Conscription. Male children and clearly willing young males are conscripted as members of the Legion, a purely military position; there are no 'peacetime' occupations in Legion, only slavery or being a soldier.

Mr. House -- the mysterious figure in control of the New Vegas Strip. No one ever sees him, but everyone on the Strip is working for him, and he has a bunch of pre-war robots called Securitrons maintaining peace on the Strip (and keeping NCR from taking control). He only ever talks to people through his robots, and he rarely talks to people. He is suspected to be either a robot himself, or a ghoul, because he would have to be over 250 years old.

Various Mojave Towns -- Various towns in the Mojave desert operate as independent societies. They are generally not hostile to the NCR, but not appreciative of the NCR wanting to take over their territory.

Enclave -- A long-defeated faction, as far as anyone on the West Coast knows. Fascist faction who attempted to eradicate modern humanity because they were not "pure" due to exposure to radiation. Directly derived from the actual US Military.

Brotherhood of Steel -- A faction on the ropes, as far as anyone on the West Coast knows. Formerly allies of the NCR, the Brotherhood of Steel hoard technology -- not all technology, just the kinds that will kill you, good weapons and the like. They have fought the NCR on multiple occasions over various technologies and are currently in hiding. Also directly derived from the actual US military... not that people know that.

The easiest way to tweak it, if you want your char's backstory to remain the same, would be to have your char come either from the NCR (and their former service being as a private guard of some sort), or have them come from one of the more developed civilizations on the East Coast such as Rivet City (around Washington DC) or Diamond City (in Boston). The question then becomes, why (and how) travel across the country?
