"Shattered Lines The Expansion"
Name: Jonathan “JD” Maddox
Race: Human (soon to be Dragonkin)
General Description: JD is a fit man and has been most of his life. He ran a marathon once, in order to check it off his list of things to do and promptly vowed to never do it again. Other than that he eats well, hits the gym five days a week, cross fit or running most of the time, and spends a great deal of time hiking and kayaking. He carries himself upright, confident, and proud, something he learned from the Marines. At a solid 5’ 11” and roughly 195 he typically can be a bit intimidating but has an affable and good natured, hospitable demeanor that shows little of the temper he has been known to have, a temper he exerts great control over. At around twenty eight the receding hairline that is the hallmark of the men in his family began to affect JD so to avoid it he began to shave his head clean every week and he also keeps the hair on his face to nothing more than three day stubble. His eyes are green, nose trim but slightly off center due to an early life bar fight, and his ears are just a little too big… he is not exactly comely but there are worse faces in the world.
Education/skills: JD, an avid outdoors man, has focused on academic and career pursuits that would put him outside, free from the confines of the cubicle crucible. He entered the Active Duty Marine Corps with a high school education, served as an infantryman for six years and through the TA program earned a B.S. in Conservation Biology from the University of Phoenix. After completing his degree he dropped from the active force into the Marine Corps Reserve to be closer to home and pursue a career as a game warden for the state of Pennsylvania. His time in the military and as a law enforcement officer with the PA game commission has left him with a wide knowledge of outdoor skills such as survival measures, weather effects, biology, ecosystems, wildlife identification, botany, hunting, tracking, and trapping. His time as a law enforcement officer and military member (20 years) has equipped him with a solid knowledge of weapons handling, marksmanship, verbal skills, conflict resolution, leadership techniques, investigative tactics, and communication skills.
Weapons/equipment: At the start of this saga JD will be out in the woods discharging his duties as a game warden. It being December, he will be wearing a well worn set of Danner temperate RAT boots, good wool socks, and 5.11 winter insulted under-layer garments under a game commission winter uniform. The uniform consists of dark green law enforcement poly-wool trousers and long sleeved dark green poly wool shirt with the state game commission patch on the left shoulder, regional patch on the right, and last name stitched above left breast pocket. A commission parka, dark green in color, with a heavy hood, and with the same markings as the shirt it is worn over the torso. A black watch cap covers his shaved head and hatch winter law enforcement gloves keep his hands warm on patrol.
Being as he is on duty he will have a duty belt with a surefire flashlight in a holder on the left-front of the belt, his personal phone in his left front trouser pocket, a police radio held on the back-right hip clip of the belt with a transmitter pulled across his back and over his left shoulder hooked to the parka’s lapel, a write in the rain notebook in his right front trouser pocket, two sets of handcuffs in a holder center-rear of the duty belt, hotshot taser in cross draw holster on his left side, bear spray canister next to the handcuffs on his left-back hip next to his SOG multi-tool, and the entire right-front hip of the belt will be taken up by his duty weapon, holster, and two extra magazines. The duty weapon JD carries is a standard Glock 23 Gen4 chamber in .40S&W, standard load out is three, 13 round magazines, one in the weapon and two on the belt.
Being a prudent outdoors man JD also carries a buck series hunting knife attached to the small day pack he carries while patrolling the woods. The pack also contains a single days worth of trail food, 20 feet of nylon rope and 5 carabineers, a local map & compass, fire starting material, a half full hydration system and one set of extra gloves and socks.
History: JD grew up on Air Force bases his whole life and traveled throughout the country when he was coming up. During his childhood he was part of the typical middle class military family, was loved, encouraged, and disciplined at all the right times. He got the opportunity to see all the landscapes of North America from the eastern coast at Shaw AFB, to the frozen Midwest at Minot AFB and everything in between. JD became an avid outdoor enthusiast, hunter, hiker, and camper. After high school JD let a Marine Corp recruiter convince him the Marines would let him spend all the time he wanted outside hiking as long as he joined the infantry. After six years on active duty JD spent plenty of time outside, hiking and wallowing in some of the most inhospitable and miserable places but he enjoyed the majority of it. During his time on the Active side of the house JD took advantage of Uncle Sam’s college program and earned a B.S. in conservation biology before dropping to the Reserve side of the house where he has served in PA as a Platoon Sergeant and Company Gunny, one weekend a month, two weeks a year, ever since. His civilian job ever since leaving the Active military has been with the PA game commission as a wildlife conservation officer or game warden. It is a job he has enjoyed very much and considers himself very good at.
