Mission Requests / South Africa Op ideas
« on: May 14, 2017, 03:50:56 PM »
I'm typing from my phone, but wondering with the  new players - thought it would be cool to set up an operation set in South Africa and then working our way up into Central Africa. Probably small conflicts, allowing peeps to throw in a couple of characters that have not been able to hop on the bandwagon in Op Urgent Mercy :)

I have no problems. The use of "Split-Op" is something I haven't seen done yet, so that was nice. Ranger Batt pushes privates through ranger school. Once that's completed you get schools like candy on Halloween so good on you there again promotions up to E-5 are also really quick in regiment along with their deployment tempo so good there too.

Awards dirrong deployment, not really an issue. Again, high op-tempo, shit happens. While it doesn't talk about how SF pipeline, I know you're aware of it's workings so "I" personally have no issues. And you offer enough info elsewhere in your bio to fill the gaps.

So yeah, I'm good. Anyone else have input?

I'm good, everything seems to look in order :) I'd pretty much say he's accepted.

Would ISA agents be on the ground in Venezuela?

If not, maybe I'd make a SAD/PAG as there's a lot of political action going on.

[DETAILED STATS]

 Appearance:
   
Harrison stands at 5'10" with a stockier build, though well-proportioned, with broad shoulders and a rounded face. Though he loves having a beard, on operations, he makes sure to shave it so that it does not get caught on anything. His hair is often short back and sides as it gets hot under the helmet, and during his time off, will usually allow for it to grow a little longer than usual.

He has a single tattoo that runs along down his right forearm: 'Haec Ago Ut Alii Vivant.' The motto of the Rescue group.

 Personality:

He's a fun-loving individual who has a good sense of humor about him. Harrison is one for cracking a good pun or joke for when the time is right. He is often quite protective of his friends, and quick on the mark to pick up slight changes in emotions - he often claims its from his training as a pilot to observe and notice disruptions.

Though, when in the face of work, Harrison becomes slightly more serious - less likely to crack a joke as he knows that there are lives at stake whenever the alarm sounds. He keeps his cool under pressure and keeps a watch on everyone that is under his care as a pilot.
   

 Hobbies/Interests:

  • Orienteering
  • Rock climbing
  • Listening to jazz


 Field/Work Experience:   

  • Multiple deployments to Afghanistan
  • Multiple deployments on SAR/ CSAR ops
  • Multiple deployments on humanitarian ops
  • Multiple training exercises
   
 Personal History:
   
Ever since his father had brought home his first model helicopter at the age of five, Harrison's always had an intense fascination with them, but this was the starting spark. He was the only son in a family with three daughters, his mother was a paramedic whilst his father was a pilot - though for a fighter jet rather than a helicopter.

It was when his father retired (and with the chance to play 'dress-up' with his father's old uniform which at the time had been two sizes too big for him) that he began to explore his options more.

initially, he was heading into a bachelor's degree for Engineering and once he had come out, he attended Maxwell AFB AL training facility for 9.5 weeks, having attended basic training and being exposed to all sorts of craft that he could be a potential pilot of - but he had his sights set on piloting the HH-60 Pavehawk and working for CSAR. It was a dream come true once he had been placed in the 563rd Rescue Group.


 Relationships:

Family

  • Mother (Harriet Trevor-Jenkins - Alive)
  • Father (Lloyd Trevor-Jenkins - Alive)
  • Elder sister (Mia Trevor-Jenkins - Alive)
  • Middle sister (--- Trevor-Jenkins - Alive)
  • Youngest sister (Georgina Trevor-Jenkins - Alive)

Team/ friends

  • Captain H. M. "Howling Mad" Murdock (Co-pilot)

Special agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs - I know he's not necessarily military per se, but he's still a badass character all the same :P

Seeing as there are still two squadrons that have not been deployed under Brody's command - I'll get them over to where the action is. Brody - however - is most likely not going to be around for such a deployment, so I'll most likely be NPCing the Brits.
