((Awkward entry post incoming!
"Squad Alpha, Gene Weber reporting for duty."
"Welcome to the squad, Gene! I am Brom Keegan, your squad leader for this mission!
You're no doubt wondering if I have any relation a certain legendary assassin of Ermhelm by my name.
Let me assure you that I am him, and that all the heroic tales you've heard about me are true!
I've spent a decent amount of time in storage, so my skills may be a bit rusty, but even lacking practice as I am I'm still
the finest marksman in the galaxy!
Follow my orders and work with the rest of the squad and you will do well! Our campaign together will be the stuff of legends! By the time we're through, the names of those who stick by me will be remembered for generations to come!
We can talk more about me a bit later.
For now, what sort of skill sets do you have?
And what position in the squad do you wish to take?"
? Never heard of it. Certainly never heard of you either, Mr. Broom Keegan.
As for my skillsets: I'm a reasonably good fighter-slash-hacker. I can probably be used as a temporary medic, though I'd prefer not to because I'd probably end up killing someone.
I could probably function best in a combat-support role. Of course, you're the boss here, Broom, so I'll defer to you on that."
"That's Brom, Mr. Weber.
The only one who calls me Broom is Vynkor, and that's only because I got in the habit of calling her Vynka.
Your memory must be a bit fuzzy, Gene. I was a galactic celebrity before I was brought aboard the Nemesis!
Don't feel bad though, I've been gone for about thirty years now after all. It's only natural that people would forget.
You will soon be in awe of my talents as I lead the squad to glory!
Ahem, getting a bit off track again. I told you we could discuss my greatness at a later date.
Someone with your skill sets could prove quite useful to the squad. I look forward to working with you.
I believe it would be best if I issued you some orders. We'll likely finish up with the remaining enemies before you arrive, so don't worry about combat just yet.
For now, just join us over at the grav plant. Fire off a shot at one of the guards there if you feel like it, or the squid fighter if it's still up for some reason."

"I'm, ah, genuinely unsure whether that's Cho asking those questions or my blood loss. Can one of you people confirm?"
"That is indeed Cho you hear, Vynka! We've been sent another squad member to help out.
He's relaying messages back and forth between ourselves and the Nemesis."
"Cho, I'm ashamed to say this, but Alpha has had another casualty under my command.
MIles courageously stayed behind during a tactical retreat to distract a wave of enemy fighters for us and was shot down.
We aren't certain of his condition, but it is assumed that he's dead.
He was a brave obedient soldier, and may have saved the squad with his sacrifice.
If it's alright with you, I'd like to bring him back with us for a memorial ceremony."
