Name: Jaron ChancetonElementals; stick them on the front of your ship and you got a better shield than the one installed, in fact we do that sometimes.

Ever been in a fire fight with one of them Shield packs watching you back? Never felt safer getting shot at in my life.
-Unknown Infantry Unit
Once a solider joins the Shield Corps they are nothing but tools, expensive but expendable.

What: Augmented Human
Shield Sword - a basic shield based weapon that was devised during the early testing of the new technology. It allowed the test deployment of shields in a simple device that could be used without implants. It can form a heat blade, defensive bubble or wall, counter frequency fields, and paths to better penetrate projectiles, or any other specialized form that is programmed in. She usually carries 2 or 3 of these devices to account for burnouts and potential loss.
Duel Pistols - Tried and true, a set of dual magnum revolvers that pack a punch and have enough power to pierce armor.
Elemental Power Armour - Despite it's name this system has nothing to do with magic, it instead is based around super advanced shield generators that can compete with those installed onto ships. The suit is hard linking into the user who is known as a Elemental and with the use of an on board AI the unit can be a very effective weapon system. The shielding system can be used to create protective bubbles or be compressed into super heated kinetic blades that can cut through most substances with ease, the power of the system comes from the Elemental's level of training and knowledge of their weapon system.

Avatar/Beast Mode, The overdrive function of Elemental Armor, the shield generator is used to project a large protective avatar form of the Elemental that turns them into an almost unstoppable tank. Extended use of this function for more than a few minutes can burn out the armor core and kill the user.
The markings of her eyes are from a burnout of her own suits systems during a intense combat situation, her generators overloaded and burned her visor, the flesh around her eyes and sections of her skin. modern medicine has re grafted most of the damaged flesh but her tear ducts are permanently damaged, this means her eyes now have the illusion of always looking like she is shedding black tears while she cannot truly cry only give enough moister to maintain her eyes.
Personality: Jaron is rather unprofessional despite her position, she is not afraid to speak her mind, even to her superiors and often out right ignores orders to pursue her own method of getting things done, the only thing that keeps her from being killed by her own officers is the fact that she works alone. As a merc she will take any job she deems worth her time and if you try to cut her out of her pay, expect a short future.
History: Jaron signed on into the federation army at the age of 16, she volunteered to join the Elemental Corps. and under went the surgeries and enchantments to help her body work with the neural implants and the stresses of using her suit. She was given her Armor and assigned AI-unit 2U3 or better known as 'sue'. She thought that by joining the ranks of the highly prestige Elemental she would be given special treatment but as one of the military most expensive units Elementals where over worked and under paid, they where often sent into suicide missions with high expectations of success and the life span of an average Elemental was shorter then Combat Mages and front line troops. To be an Elmental meant she was in the Federation ranks for life till she chanced upon a merc outfit known as Dead Rangers. A mercenary group made up of ex-fed soldiers, self proclaimed Commandos and illegal Elementals, they gave her a way out, the Rangers leader wanting a Federation Elemental because of their better weaponry, more enhanced suits and AI systems he offered to aid Jaron in faking her death on a mission so they could extract her and she would be listed as MIA. It was simple too, faking a system failure during a high risk mission and leaving nothing but a scorching hole where she "Died" had the army listing her as KIA and her no longer being tied to them as she joined the Dead Rangers ranks and became a mercenary. Now she prefers to work alone, only working in groups when the job requires and taking jobs she wants to do, the Ranger leader gave her the freedom she wanted as long as she stays loyal to them and only them, a Federation Elemental is a force to reckon with even if she is only a single unit and having her in his outfit makes the Dead Rangers a very dangerous group, and also very popular for business opportunities.
The Dead Rangers
HG: Elementals have no use of Hard Gear armor because their Elemental Armour is already powerful enough, they do however have training in combating HG's and ways of hacking into one of their systems, made possible with the aid of their AI, the only way this can be prevented is if the HG has a neural link to their user.
