Author has written 18 stories for Halo, Call of Duty, Pokémon, and Pacific Rim.
I'm just your usual 21 year old guy living in the Midwestern United States. Aside from doing housework and working on airplanes at a medium density airfield, I scrape enough time to write some stuff on here.
I play the viola in a ten group ensemble and swim competitively. My specialty is the 500 freestyle.
During my high school years, I also played varsity football as the backup running back and primary kick/punt return specialist. Five of those return attempts were touchdowns.
My favorite games to play are Halo, Call of Duty, Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, Gears of War, Madden Football and Pokemon. Favorite television shows are: NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Last Ship, Agents of Shield and Hawaii Five-0
My goal is to become an ATP or Airline Transport Pilot and fly a big jet like the 777 or 747 to the long haul international destinations. Thus, Emirates and Cathay Pacific are my dream employers. My personal favorite aircraft is the Boeing 777-300ER. One of my goals in aviation is to get a photo on Airliners.net.
I am a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals, San Francisco 49ers and Giants, Golden State Warriors, Baltimore Ravens and Philadelphia Eagles.
Generally I am an open minded author. I write a lot of thriller novels, but will sometimes explore other genres such as Romance, which has been quite successful. Some of my writing may conflict with canon of the particular type of story I'm writing, just as a warning.
Lastly, feedback is very important to me. It is always welcomed, even if it's just a comment on what happened during the chapter. I can't put enough emphasis on this as many of my fics tend to get fewer reviews than I'd like. Constructive criticism is always appreciated.
One more thing, please keep the flames to yourself. I'm not interested in what you have to say in this regard.
Blades Series Character Bios (Information and new characters will be updated accordingly as the series progresses)
Aegis was born as an only child. Not much is known about his childhood except for a few lessons he had remembered as an adult. The day after his eighteenth birthday, he joined the ODSTs in his own part to battle the Covenant Empire on four different worlds and ten engagements. Trip would later be recruited for the Office of Naval Intelligence Section III where he would perform several high-risk black ops. He would leave ONI in 2553 where he was brought into the Spartan-IV Program. Aegis would battle Covenant as a Spartan before he separated and founded the Blades in late 2554.
Personality and Traits: Aegis maintains a calm and calculative persona seen in most ONI agents. He harbors a reserved attitude especially when interacting with others and is quick to be angered whenever the innocent are threatened. Trip's authoritative presence often incites his hard pushing attitude demands the very best from those under his command. However, he has a softer side, caring about his friends and fellow comrades. He frequently interjects quips, which are usually end up as playful bickering with one or more of the Blades members. Aegis was about to be married, but his wife had died while driving drunk. Although reluctant to pursue a relationship, he had still shared romantic moments with a few women.
Aegis favors the Acheron A9 personal defense pistol in combat due to its unique cartridge that is capable of penetrating shields and armor alike at most distances exceeding that of the M6 series. Along with his proficiencies with weapons, he is also incredibly skilled in hand to hand combat. He is an accomplished commander, whether on the ground or the ship.
Not much is known about Drew's childhood. He had joined the Marines a year after the beginning of war against the Covenant. During his multiple tours that were double the length of any of the other Blades, he participated in some of the most horrific battles including the Harvest Campaign, New Harmony and Sargasso. In the early stages, he was among an intelligence gathering group that performed studies and tests with captured Covenant Wraith tanks. He had retired and married twice by 2540. Somehow, he was recruited for the Blades once the war had concluded.
Personality and Traits: Drew has a paunch in his figure, which had deteriorated from his impressive physique in his time as a Marine. He frequently blames his out of shape on desserts, which he never fails to leave space in his stomach for. He portrays a fatherly personality, being one of the oldest crewmembers of the Blades. In the group, Drew serves as the financial adviser as well as the second-in-command. Like Aegis, he exhibits a tough presence, but also maintains a caring side to those under his command.
Drew's combat abilities have dulled with his age, however he is just as sharp as he was in his youth. Much of the time, he fights from the ship or on ground vehicles, providing close support when necessary. His physical attributes have worn with him getting tired much quicker.
Vaal Talam is the second oldest out of four children born to a respected keep guardsman of the Talam lineage. Other members of his family include an unnamed younger brother, youngest brother Akuo and an unnamed older sibling. Like all male sangheili, Vaal joined the Covenant military, adding the ee suffix to his name and fought against humanity. It is implied that he had slain many humans, as eventually he was approached by Rtas Vadumee himself to join the Covenant Special Operations team. Talam accepted and thus became a member of the unit.
Upon the Great Schism Outbreak, Talam like all sangheili joined with the Covenant Separatists, removing the ee suffix from his name. He survived the end of the war, eventually being approached by Trip Aegis to join the Blades. Vaal agreed and brought several likeminded warriors to also join. Talam mentions that he would like to eventually have a family of his own.
Personality and Traits: Vaal Talam keeps a strong sense of honor and loyalty to his friends. He regards humans highly seeing how they can be brave and powerful fighters. He is also aware of humanity's darker side and holds contempt for those who threaten civilians. Like all elites, he hates jiralhanae. He is good friends with Trip Aegis and gets along with the rest of the crew. Aegis and the human members of the Blades are aware of his killing of humans before the war's end, but the issue isn't discussed. He has several contacts on Sanghelios that are the group's main suppliers of Covenant weapons. Although somewhat puzzled at humans sometimes, he is eager to learn about the diversity of human culture.
Vaal is extremely skilled with an energy sword. He is incredibly agile and strong as well as stealthily quiet. His ability to quickly adapt makes him one of the most respected members of the Blades. Unlike most sangheili, he is not ashamed of using human weapons.
Vasili's childhood revolved around military. His parents were both veterans of the war against the Covenant.

Personality and traits: Tony is the leader that every team wants with them, keeping a clear head, laser thin focus even in the midst of utter chaos. He is decisive, executing with extreme precision and has a reputation for doing the right thing just at the right time. He employs utter respect from both his men and those facing him in battle.

Brett M. Fowler
Callsign: Eon Two
Brett Fowler was born in Ninth Bay on the colony of Criterion. Much details on his military career are not detailed, although it is known that he had participated in the Human-Covenant war on two worlds and multiple tours.
Personality and traits: Brett Fowler is a man that will always stick his face in others' in a challenging manner. He's the guy people wouldn't pick to choose the bar, but the person they can count on in the bar fight. He is fearless, even voicing his own opinion when the top brass has a bad idea. He's aggressive, but never reckless. Many times, the team has forgiven his head-butting tactics with the enemy, resulting in unfortunate effects for the later.
Fowler favors using the M739 SAW as well as a shotgun.
Ross Z. Pine
Callsign: Eon Three
Ross Pine was born in Hudson on the colony of Terra Nova.
Personality and Traits: Ross Pine is like any good sniper. Calm, careful not just on the battlefield but off of it as well. While he isn't the oldest on the team, he is still respected as such due to his experiences on some of the most difficult sniping missions during the Covenant battles as an ODST. He is still a man of few words, unless pointing out an error or jokingly giving a teammate a hard time.
Pine utilizes the S5 sniper rifle and favors a personal defense pistol for backup.
Marcus E. Austal
Callsign: Eon Four
Marcus Austal was born in Cravate on the colony of New Corsica.
Personality and Traits: Like many young bucks, Marcus is eager to prove that he is worthy of being on an elite team of top tier Spartans. His unorthodox nature seems to rub off on many traditional leaders, but more often than not, it gives the edge for victory. Even his experience is nothing compared to his peers, which the latter often look after him like a kid brother.
Austal uses an M57 PDW and an A9 pistol.
