• To secretly become part of a group in order to get information or to influence the way that group thinks or behaves
• To move slowly into a substance, place, system or organization
That is actually what infiltration means
Infiltration would really just be disguising himself to hide among their ranks. ^^ at least, that's one facet.
Bleh. The point I'm trying to get across is, whatever the special kind of crazy it must have taken to get assigned to STG is, Vincent must have overdosed on it.

Other news, I'll get a post up after my ROTC class later today.
Nothing like a 2 hour military operations lab to get you ready to write a post for a sci-fi military RP.
I can't tell if Myke is standing on something or did an amazing job of timing a jump. I'd like to imagine it was a jump
Neither, he is floating
I'm pretty sure he's just that tall
No he was on a table
I don't know.. Have you seen how tall he is?
GIBBS CAN'T HAVE A CONCUSSION, ISIS NEEDS GIBBS NOT TO BE BROKEN! Haha thanks for letting me know, when she's done fixing Singer up she'll be checking on every one else (she kind of has no faith in the field medic's that are already there.
XD Sorry, but that was the plan. Let's just hope he doesn't fall asleep...
With one hand she expertly sews up the poor victim, with the other she bitch slaps Gibbs awake as he dozes off... Yeah she can do this.
XD I dunno if Singer will survive anyway. XD
Just going to take a leap of faith and post a CS. REALLY hope I get in on this.
Name/Call-Sign - Alexis 'Lex' Aquila / Eagle
Date of Birth - June 5th, 2113
Origin of Birth - Vancouver, Canada
Rank - 2nd Lieutenant
Speciality - CVTOL Pilot
Falcon Personal Defense Weapon - A compact SMG standard issue to all Valkyrie CVTOL pilots. It fires .45 caliber rounds with a capacity of thirty shots in a magazine.
Prometheus Heavy Pistol - Alexis's choice sidearm. The Prometheus fires .45 caliber rounds with a capacity of eight shots. The reason behind taking this pistol, is because she can share ammunition between her Falcon and her Prometheus.
Standard Pilot Combat & Survival Knife - A knife standard to all Valkyrie pilots.
Valkyrie CVTOL [Combat Vertical Take-Off and Landing] Gunship - The Valkyrie is a combat gunship capable of transporting up to eight soldiers in its rear compartment and offering a lengthy amount of fire support. From two air-to-ground hellfire rocket pods, two four barreled Longbow Air-to-Air missiles to an explosive fifty caliber chaingun mounted under the nose. The Valkyrie also comes with an inbuilt sensor pod for infrared, night vision, and electromagnetic visions. The chaingun can lock into position for improved dogfighting ability.

Atlas Armored Personnel Carrier - The Atlas is a sturdy APC designed for traversing rugged terrain efficiently, most notably ruined cities. It carries two long range missile launchers with heatseaking and laser designation capability [The gunner can switch between the two modes]. It also has a 30 caliber machinegun on the turret in between the two missile pods. The Atlas can be refitted to be a dedicated Anti-Air platform but due to the need for more rapid deployments on frontlines, the Argus is a troop transport first. It is capable of reaching speeds of up to 100 kilometers an hour [or 62 miles an hour for you imperial folks] on flat terrain. Top speed within urban or rugged environments varies. Due to the overwhelming air superiority of the machines, many aircraft pilots are cross trained into APC drivers to expand and maintain their role as transport and support personnel. Since there aren't many pilots nowadays, militaries do their best not to waste them in the pointless endeavor of an aerial assault on the surface.

Service Record - Alexis's was only important after she had joined the military at eighteen and had become a pilot. She wasn't anybody special beforehand, just a girl with an aptitude for flying. Alexis had become a combat VTOL pilot for the Canadian military after her home was overrun by the machines. She found herself deploying and extracting special forces every day and providing air support for them. Her flying had led to many decisive victories on the Northern front. But despite the number of victories she had under her belt, the number of overall defeats her country was being dealt heavily outweighed her achievements.
Alexis's VTOL was shot down by the machines three years later. The all of the special forces operatives were K.I.A and Alexis was M.I.A. All that remained was a snow-covered, ruined VTOL with blood spread across the white blanket. The cockpit had be smashed open, some blood on the tips of the glass and down the side of the cockpit. It looked as though she was pulled from the cockpit. Had they not been shot down in the middle of a blizzard, search and rescue might've been able to find some tracks in the snow to follow. But there was no sign of her. Alexis was listed as K.I.A after they had found her dog tags hung up in the cockpit. To further the mystery, the machines that had shot down were found not far from the crash site, destroyed and dismantled; even some parts were missing from them. The damage done to their frames were inconsistent with any of the weapons that Alexis had access to, including the special forces' weapons. Somebody else was around, and they had taken Alexis.
A year later, during a raid on a machine prison camp, Alexis was found. She was scarred, malnourished and on the verge of death. She was taken back to UGC-001 along with all of the other liberated prisoners and nursed back to a healthy state. She had scars lining her spine and left arm. After an x-ray, they saw that she had cybernetics similar in design of the machines attached to her spine and entire left arm. During her first interrogation, she was thought to be a new type of machine spy. Though any evidence was inconclusive. Alexis explained that after she was shot down in the Arctic Circle, she was rescued by a small human resistance group who used machine parts to save her. She was paralyzed from the crash and the bones in her left arm were shattered in so many places that it'd never heal properly. She explained that she ended up in the prison camp after the resistance was ambushed while in search for a new base of operations.
Alexis was pardoned from any accusations made against her. She was then subject to much dermal reconstruction to get rid of the scars across her body. Lots of doctors were dumbfounded by the thought that rebels with hardly any resources could perform such a successful implant surgery on a critical patient. Alexis was soon a tool for study, which she hated. After many weeks of arguing with the science officer, she finally convinced him that she was a human not a lab rat and that she belonged on the battlefield where she left off. Alexis was then transferred to UGC-001's military.
She was cleared to fly combat VTOLs like before, but it took a bit of training to get used to the American aircraft. Not to mention working the rust off after not flying for a year and a half. But as she returned to the surface, she saw how much had changed. Infected were running the land as well as the machines now. Cities were nothing but overgrown rubble and there were skeletons strewn about the land. She had to change her methods as well, the machines had built new weapons and ways of war; nothing like she had faced the year before.
She fought with UGC-0001's military since. Her early years with them had been encountered by other soldiers scorning her because she was part machine. More than once she had found herself cornered by groups of other soldiers. Some times she'd be beaten, others she'd give the beating. Her strong will and doubly strong left arm made for a good fight. Though as time went on, people either accepted her for who she was or just downright stayed away from her. She had formed a group of friends that she could trust when on the battlefield. Other pilots and soldiers on the ground, she wasn't alone anymore.
Alexis then caught word of the same Captain who had rescued her from the prison camp had just been accepted into the STG. Alexis had done a few operations with special forces and had heard of the STG; she wanted to join as well. On top of that, Alexis had never gotten the opportunity to thank the captain for getting her out, so she followed in Vellenco's footsteps and applied for the STG. Her application wasn't a quick to return to her to say the least. But in the end, she found herself as a proud member of the Shadow Task Group.
Psychological Profile - Alexis doesn't hide the fact that she hates the machines. But she doesn't support the anti-synthetic extremists either. She has been a target of their activities in more than one occasion because of what she has in her to keep her alive. She is friendly for the most part, unless somebody speaks of her in a negative light, where she'll lash out at them in anger. When sleeping, Alexis talks and sweats, reliving her months in the machine prison camp; Diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. When awake, however, she seems fine. The scars of her past don't seem to affect her as deeply as when she is asleep.
