Birth Name: Jamie Carrington
Generation: Second Generation Praetorian
Appearance: Jamie stands around 6'3" and weighs around 240lbs when out of his armour. Well toned and muscular after undergoing the genetic modifications that all second Generation Praetorians undergo at a young age. Jamie has a pale complexion brought on by spending most of his time within his Praetorian armour and has one long scar across his right temple that he acquired before his induction into the Praetorian program. Jamie's eyes are a light green shade and his hair, though shaved, is a dark hazelnut colour.
Personality: Jamie has trouble developing relationships with other people. Suffering from post-dramatic stress disorder since he was a child has led to him being short-tempered and often hypervigilant about his surroundings, looking for threats at all times. Jamie also has an obsessive compulsion to constantly maintain and clean the blades he uses in battle when outside of combat to the point where he needs to make sure that not even a minuscule drop of blood is left to stain the blades. Jamie has a detachment from his emotions that generally makes him appear unfeeling or uninterested to others which has prevented any sort of relationships he could have with others.
When on the battlefield Jamie's short-tempered behaviour is more prevalent as he can quickly get frustrated and ignore orders to accomplish missions in a way he feels is more appropriate which has led to issues during team-oriented missions. Jamie has a close relationship with his suits AI system Gabriel to the point where he has grown an attachment to the suits AI system as his only companion and enjoys spending most of his time within the suit. Gabriel allowing him a momentary break from his hypervigilancy and providing him with a comfortable sense of security even on the battlefield allowing him to be more efficient on his missions.
Biography: Jamie Carrington was born into a family that lived on the outskirts of human colonised space. His family along with many of the other families that lived their were disgruntled and resentful towards the Holy Ecclesian Empire that owned them. Their dissatisfaction with the Empire eventually led to a full scale rebellion where the planet attempted to secede from the Empire and become their own independent entity. Once the rebellion started the Empire was quick to respond and the rebels attempted to fight back against the Empire as it tried to stamp the rebellion out before it could become to serious. During the conflict that followed the Empire used artillery fire to bombard the city that Jamie lived in, it being the centre of the rebellions operations, and one of those artillery shells happened to hit Jamie's home. The shell mutilated his parents in front of him and left the, then 5 year old, Jamie in shock as he was blown away from the impact. Jamie tried to make his way to his parents corpses but the weakened structure of the building, caused by the artillery fire, caused into collapse on Jamie knocking him out for a short while. When he came through he managed to crawl out of the rubble with his head bleeding from an injury he had sustained to his temple. He made it only a short distance from his home before collapsing again from the concussion he sustained. Shortly thereafter he was found by a unit of the Holy Ecclesian Empire who took him, along with several other children who survived the invasion, to be apart of the Imperial Praetorian project. After his induction Jamie's psyche 'blacked out' the events of his childhood to limit the amount of trauma he endured from it.
Upon being inducted in the Imperial Praetorian project many of the kids inducted from Jamie's planet along with Jamie died during the early stages of the project. Jamie though managed to survive the physical toll that came with the genetic modifications and the second generation Praetorian project, though his mental condition unluckily wasn't so resilient. During Jamie's first training scenario he had a mental breakdown, do to flashbacks he incurred during the scenario, and needed to be subdued quickly to prevent him from hurting himself or others during his loss of control. After that the higher ups controlling the Imperial Praetorian project thought about cutting him from the program but continued testing to see if he still couldn't be made fit for doing. Despite that first outburst Jamie managed to excel at his other training missions without another severe outburst like that and started to develop a bond with his suit's AI system. As his bond to his suit's AI system increased so did his efficiency during missions. His bond with his AI system became something akin to a father and son relationship as his AI, Gabriel, soothed the teenage boy's mental state whenever he felt himself getting too unstable. Thus Jamie ended up trusting his Praetorian suit and the AI within it more then he could an actual human being which only furthered to detach him from other living people.
Jamie would take part in many missions after that, a majority of them being solo missions where he proved to be far more effective. The mission that made him into a fully fledged Praetorian soldier happened to be his second mission and the mission he his most well known for. He was seventeen at the time when Jamie was called into a planet on the middle rim of space where an insurgency had been developed. The rebels on the planet appeared far more well dug in and prepared for the Imperial Armed Forces retaliation than anticipated which led to huge casualties attempting to retake the planet. After an ambush caused a group of Imperial soldiers to be trapped behind enemy lines Jamie was sent in by himself to safely escort them out. Blasting a path through enemy lines he managed to meet up with the regiment and escort them out of the war zone well taking heavy damage himself. This early in Jamie's career he had attempted to use guns when going into combat and during the final push his guns had run out of ammunition leaving Jamie with nothing more then his hands to cut a path through the enemy. It was at that moment Jamie learned how to use his suits generators to effectively turn his hands into something akin to swords with kinetic energy. By the time Jamie had finally escorted the Imperial Regiment to safety he had suffered heavy damage to his suit and his suit's generator reserves had completely been drained causing him to collapse. Because of this and because of Jamie's success at carrying out his mission he was given the alias of Paladin and finished his time as a trainee. After this mission Jamie was reluctant to use guns again and preferred more to use swords and blades well relying on his suits abilities to cut himself a path through the battles he was sent on.

Name of A.I: Gabriel
A.I Personality: Gabriel personality with Jamie is best described as a fatherly one. Acting as a way of soothing and maintaining Jamie's mental state well in the middle of combat. In contrast though Gabriel's personality is more often then not cold and ruthless. Referring to the enemies of the Holy Ecclesian Empire as vermin and Heretics he constantly advocates that Jamie exterminate them indiscriminately and brutally. In missions Gabriel see's no issue with leaving behind allies should rescuing them threaten Jamie's ability to complete his missions.
