"Get on the REKT bandwagon," they said.
"It will be ‼FUN‼," they said. :ghost:

Anyway, character sheet is as follows.

Name: Gene "Spark" Weber, Jr.
Age: 27
Gender: Male
Personal Information: Gene was born into a prominent family of military men on New Earth. While his parents wanted him to enroll in military school and eventually enlist in the United Galactic Military, like most young men of the Weber family had, Gene began to take a liking to computer science at an early age - much to the dismay of his parents. He turned out to have quite a knack for it, and under pressure from his family, he decided to enlist in the Galactic Military as an electronic warfare specialist.
Gene's training career in the Galactic Military was an otherwise unremarkable one; his superiors and instructors, however, did not view him highly, as he was quite introverted and thus not a 'team player' in any sense of the phrase.
His career came to an end when he was court-martialed shortly after a failed operation in the field, killing everybody in his squad but himself. It was later revealed that he had failed to communicate with the rest of his squad, and they walked into a trap that he was supposed to disarm.

Gene stands about 178 centimeters (5' 10") tall; he is quite strong, has well-toned muscles from his service in the Galactic Military, but he is not very bulky. He sports brown hair and light blue eyes. A scar runs down the upper part of his left arm, from an accident during his military career involving a frag grenade.
Personality: Gene is introverted; he dislikes communication, and prefers to work alone. His withdrawn personality primarily stems from his childhood, when he was ruthlessly bullied for pursuing a career computer science instead of the military.

While Gene does not care much for group activities, he puts up with it, considering it to be a chore. He makes attempts to converse with others in his group, but will often speak without much tact or forethought.
Reason your character got REKT: Gene was court-martialed for gross negligence in carrying out an operation, and was given the choice to be dishonorably discharged or be shipped to Tartarus' ReKT in a cryogenic coffin. He took the easy way out - he just couldn't bear to see his family's ashamed faces upon learning he'd been dishonorably discharged, so he signed the transfer papers. The very next day, he was unceremoniously chucked inside his coffin and sent on his way to Tartarus.

here's my entry :mrgreen:
Spoiler:      SHOW
Name: Felicity "Felix" Walker
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Personal Information: Twelve cold years ago, the little girl tiptoed around her house, wrapped in a blanket awoken by a nightmare. The air was still but peaceful; everything except her dream seemed to be in place. She proceeded to her parent's room, pushing the creaking door a little, just to take a peek. And there he stood, tall and strong, his bare muscles illuminated by the pale moonlight. He held an old dagger, creeping up behind her mother. With a dozen stabs he rendered her lifeless, feeling her crimson blood on the blade's edge. The girl dropped her blanket, just staring at her father. His dark eyes stared back at her. He reached out to his daughter but she just stepped back, not shifting her gaze from him. She kept backing away, unaware of the flight of stairs behind her. A little slip and she fell hard on her head. A scar through her right eyebrow split her beautiful skin. Her memory vanished as quickly as her father.

She was sent to an orphanage, her memory wiped out a second time so that she would not remember the slightest fragments of her dark past. Growing up over there for the next three years, rumours spread about the incident. Her temper was uncontrollable and curiosity out of hand. She broke out to see the world and discover her true identity.

Felicity adopted the name "Felix" to keep her identity as a girl a secret so that she could get along with any bounty hunters along the way, whom she could help and in return seek vengeance for her mother's death.

Shoulder-length (could say medium height) black hair with red and pink highlights. Golden brown skin with many cuts and bruises, most notably the scar through her right eyebrow; alright looking, not anything spectacular. Short-ish at 5'6". Has a bit of muscle due to the fact that she has been running around, falling in trouble, trying to figure out her past.
Personality: Aggressive but has a soft side for the people she likes. Usually has enough patience to be tolerant towards you but if you make her angry, she'll turn into a demon. Tends to be diplomatic and persuasive to get her way if necessary. Will go out of the way to get what she wants. Usually tries to keep her identity a secret because many want to get rid of her. She is also very fickle. What empowers her is her desire to know more and to be loved.
Reason your character got REKT: A bounty hunter, annoyed by the competition with her and her boss decides to capture her and send her away. Enough money to do the job.

What was your character's dream, before getting shipped to Tartarus? Was there anything in particular your character dreamed of accomplishing someday?
On one hand, Felix wants to know more about her past and avenge the death of her mother while on the other she dreams of being a good bounty hunter herself, with enough people to trust. She also dreams of time travel so that she could change the past.

List a few ways your character's personality could develop and/or change over the course of the story.
When with someone who truly cares about her and understands her, she could evolve into a more patient and peaceful person. When with someone fishy, even the littlest of things will annoy her. Her fickle nature could set her off.

What really sets your character apart from other characters, and makes your character unique?
She tries to keep her distance from others at times but sometimes she might cling on to them if she trusts them. The desire to know more and to be loved burns within her.

What's a serious flaw your character has, that he/she has difficulty overcoming even when it matters most? Feel free to list more than one.
She cannot bear any insult against her family, especially her mother. She is quite clingy and protective of those she loves. Sometimes she dislikes the fact that she is female and hides this.

Does your character have any interests? Hobbies? Passions or strong opinions? Relate two or more of these.
Felix loves archery and anything that involves violence and a show of strength, although she's not always good at it. She enjoys coding and manipulating anything digital to favor her chances, even if it's just to play a prank on her friends. She is quite good at seducing others, which she does if nothing else works out.

Tell a short story about something that happened between your character and someone they were close to before they got shipped to Tartarus.
Felix was kidnapped by an enemy bounty hunter whom she sweet-talked to twice before. He fell for it both times but this time he managed to kidnap her and send her away before her team got the loot. Her boss, was not in very good terms with her and only cared about the money which is one reason why no one came back for her. She doesn't have any friends.

Tell a short story about a scenario where your character is forced to leave an ally behind to finish the mission.
Felix would never ever leave anyone behind. If she has to, she would volunteer to stay back.

Tell a short story about a scenario where your character dies in what he/she would consider the best way possible.
She would accept death only when after quest for revenge and tying up all the loose ends. If it's inevitable, she would prefer to die a painless, quit death, like a bullet to the head.

Tell a short story about a scenario where your character would be in his/her element.
On missions where she has to exterminate everyone on board or a stealth mission, she performs her best. When it comes to a situation where she has no weapons, she resorts to striking a truce, which she often breaks when she gets what she wants.

Tell a short story about a scenario where your character is forced to make a difficult decision.
Choosing whom to save among her loved ones. Being insulted.

Excellent! Some things I want to mention prior to accepting, just to be sure they weren't accidental.
  1. Your character does not have any form of ship weaponry. This is typically a bad idea. Most missions consist of a bit of ground-based combat, and a bit of ship-based combat. By not getting any ship weapons, you're putting yourself at a severe disadvantage. This is still completely legal, though, and if this is intentional, and you accept any consequences, then I'll accept your character.
  2. You have two dropshields. This is also legal, but may not be the best choice. While you could conceivably throw one down if the other is depleted... why would you?
  3. You don't have any weapons at all, now that I'm looking at it. If this is intentional, I would like to very strongly advise you get some form of weaponry, at least to defend yourself.
  4. If you're trying to go purely passive (as the lack of weaponry implies), the points in conventional and unconventional don't really make any sense for your character.
