No official name was ever recorded. It was believed that her orphanage gave her a name, but she must have dismissed it after becoming a Praetorian.
25, among the oldest of the Second Gen
Standing at a tall 7 foot 3, she is a very well toned woman, making some of her muscles quite noticeable. Her eyes are both crimson red due to genetic modification. Her neck has a very stand-out barbed wire tattoo, which she says, symbolises her "pitbull"-like aggressive nature, thus needing a collar for restraint. Her black hair is usually tied back very tightly into a ponytail (a good foot long), giving the appearance (combined with her black beret) that she is bald when you are facing her directly. Her body is also riddled with bullet-hole scars. Her voice is quite soft despite her commanding aura.
The Thunderfists are known for vigirously customising their armour with either color schemes, or ECLIPSE armour pieces. Her ECLIPSE armour is the standard model with a black paint job, red trims, and red energy lights. The only 2 differences her armour has is that a black trench coat, exactly the same as her off-op uniform trench coat, is directly sewn into the back of the armour torso, and can then be worn on-top of the armour, since it's slight larger that the original trench coat, and that also the helmet is a non-standard, much lighter version of the ECLIPSE Helmet, on top of which Thalos wears her black beret. Her AI is integrated into her dogtags, hence their energetic red glow. Her ECLIPSE armour has a special slot that reads the data on the dogtags, giving her AI total access to the suit. The knuckles on her gloves are spiked.
The Emperor's personal "pitbull", or so they say. Like all Second Gen Praetorian Thalos has emotional problems, mostly anger issues that make her go into fits of pure and deadly rage, usually in combat, well, unless you decide to piss her off while off-op. She is also very commanding, most likely due to all the ops that involved her commanding platoons and outfits temporary in certain situations, making her quite a serious person that isn't exactly a fan of dumb jokes and pranks, though there are rare times when she cracks a joke or two herself and lets go of the "commander" mentality, completely contradicting her stance on puns. Her positivity is high however. She's known for raising the men's moral during the worst times, either through a speech, or by killing something large and menacing, though that is probably due to her being a Praetorian in the presence of weary men. Despite her own emotional issues, she will look out for her team and is willing to listen to their problems.
Orphaned by the Praetorian Project at the age of 5, and in an orphanage at just 6 months old, Thalos never truly knew who her parents were, and doesn't care about finding out, saying it's probably for the best. All her emotional instability comes from genetic modification rather than past problems and events that other Praetorians suffer from, with the modifications making it worse. 13 years of injections, training, and slight brainwashing later, she was given her own ECLIPSE system, a prototype to help calm her anger, also know as "Cyan". Soon after she was assigned to the Thunderfist 3rd Praetorian Unit.
The Thunderfists were, and still are, the first and only Heavy Praetorian outfit, mostly consistion of first generation Praetorians, specialising in prototype ECLIPSE power armour and heavy weapons, such as hand-held gatling guns and missile launchers. They are also known for their avid passion for custom armour. Paint jobs and custom ECLIPSE armour parts were their way, they hated the digi-camo bland beige that the standard armour boar. Being a heavy outfit, they did mission that involved head on assaults, and demolishing bases and bunkers with big guns rather than dinky, precision placed explosives. Hence the Thunderfist name-sake, they like to go out with a mini-nuclear explosion and high calibre 50mm ammunition. Their usual colour scheme was black and red.
"When you ask for a Praetorian, you ask for a super soldier who can get in behind enemy lines, and get the job done. When you ask for a Thunderfist Praetorian, you ask for a god damn walking tank armed to the teeth, who will single-handedly kill everything and stomp their fortress into the ground." -Major August, 23rd Paramilitary Regiment.
Thalos, unlike most of her Thunderfist companions, preferred the lighter, standard ECLIPSE armour. Because of this she ended up getting the "lighter" jobs that needed a berserker rather than hulking mass of metal and ammunition. Her second generation fellows fell into the lighter category as well. Most of her jobs consisted of leading a spearhead assault force to smash enemy defensive lines and to kick doors in. She was competent every single time, completing every mission given to the letter with minimal casualties. This competence, eventually provided her with a very honourable position next to Emperor Malcolm II himself as a bodyguard and to temporarily oversee security, during a celebratory ceremony of the marriage of one of his sons. But the ceremony turned pear-shaped when a large group of rebels assaulted the plaza with automated weapons in an attempt to kill the Emperor, killing many innocent people who we caught in a crossfire. Thalos commanded the Imperial Guard to escort the Royal Family back to the palace and set up defensive positions. Despite this, the rebels somehow infiltrated the throne room, with Thalos and 4 Imperial Guards being the last line of defence. The Emperor watched with no fear on his throne as Thalos single-handedly killed 6 rebels in hand-to-hand combat, while the guards killed another 5 in a short and sweet firefight. One of the guards, was sadly wounded and killed, many others who fought bravely defending the outer palace were also gunned down.
It was told 27 rebel soldiers, dressed up as civilians and press, infiltrated the plaza and palace with false pass cards and with concealed machine pistols and sub machine guns. In her dedication to the Empire, and defence of the Emperor, Thalos received the second most prestigious medal, the Silver Falcon. The guards under her command also received medals and awards, though Thalos' part of the award ceremony was never televised.
Thalos was then sent to the Archangel Unit by personal request of the Royal Family.

The ECLIPSE System contains a highly versatile, adaptive A.I. software that controls the many systems of the ECLIPSE unit.
Name of A.I.:
Cyan is a calm AI that tries to keep Thalos' rage levels down during the worst times. He acts more as an advisor, to help Thalos think rationally during her berserk faze. His voice is quite deep, and can at times be monotone, but soothing. Cyan will sometimes provide situational advice by Thalos' request. Cyan's responses are also very logical, both in thought and the way he constructs his verbal sentences.
