Profession(as this is post-apocalyptic, last position is what you put here):
German Kommando Spezialkräfte
-University Education in Physics
-Can cook well.
-German KSK Standard Training
-Amphibious Operations Training
-Airborne Operations Training
Numerous Operations. In the air, underwater, on the ground, against terrorists, rebels and fanatics.
Snowman has a very normal past, up until he joined the armed forces after University. There, he excelled and was told to join the German KSK Special Forces, he decided it to be a good idea at the time and did so. He passed the entry courses and began his 3-Year training.
During his service in the KSK, the majority of his Operations were against an underground fanatic group devoted to the Kaiju, claiming that the Kaiju were 'messengers of God' sent to cleanse humanity like a flood, and that their leader, would have a safe haven built for those who are pure enough. This fanatic group commits to terrorist actions against the whole of the population, saying that they are doing the will of God.
Then he got voluntold to join the Jaeger Program. Either he's incredibly lucky or unlucky, but both is better than almost dead or dead.
Suffers from very mild hallucinations of his fiancé, suffers from mild anxiety upon seeing said mild hallucinations.
Father, Mother, and Sisters in Berlin.
On good terms with sister. Decent terms with parents.
Most of his friends are in the armed forces, or were in the armed forces.
He likes cats.
N/A, he's the guy that orders apple juice and drives everyone home.
N/A, he once bought a pack of smokes just to see what it would smell like. He proceeded to throw it on the ground and stomp on it. The guy who sold it to him looked very
N/A, he once bought a pack of weed just to see what it would smell like. He did what he did to the cigarettes and the guy who sold it to him proceeded to tackle Snowman. Needless to say he seemed very offended.
He once broke his legs botching a FRIES exercise, but it's fully healed. Otherwise, N/A.
Snowman is cold and unforgiving to those that he can't actually see. If he's behind a monitor controlling a missile, he'll drive that thing into a major population center if need be, but if he's handed an LMG and told to shoot into a crowd of innocents, he wont be able to do that.
He actually doesn't care about the chain of command. He does what seems like a good idea, and most of the time what commands relays to him seems like a good idea, otherwise he follows his own orders.
He is very cool under pressure, it's like he doesn't feel the urgency everyone else feels, or the panic everyone else feels.
N/A, dislikes politicians and politics. Too many Ops where he had to save a politician and that politician made his job a hundred times more difficult than it should have.
-He once stopped an entire live fire test of Azure Tyr because he saw a cat walk across the firing range. The test was delayed several hours because the cat was very adamant on taking a nap on the firing range.
-Generally tries to keep civilian casualties to a minimum, usually to the extreme.
-He is prone to disobey stupid orders.
N/A in the PPDC.
During Operation: WhiteShield, several carbombs were driving towards a major civilian population center. Given that the fanatics are not widely known, the Operation was given BlackOp Status. Snowman and his team eliminated the carbombs driving towards the civilian center, but they had not known about the suicide bombers travelling by train. The mission was deemed a partial success as all objectives had been eliminated, but the civilian center had been destroyed by variables outside of the mission parameters. Unfortunately for Snowman, his fiancé was in that center, and was killed.
-Likes cats, Italian Food, Apples, Bananas, video games, iced water, Asian Food, and Scifi stuff.
-Dislikes scary movies, fast paced arcade FPS games, spicy foods, warm water, vampires and warewolves.
-He enjoys Scifi movies, TV shows, listens to classical and contemporary music, as well as dubstep.
Centuraite Modular Mk.IVb, Mark. V Jaeger
Artificial Intelligence Name:
-SK PMK001K, a massive Laser-Particle Hybrid Cannon with a theoretical maximum output of 193.25 Zettawatts given the power generators of the Centuraite Modular Mk.IVb model. The laser cannon contains Neodymium-doped phosphate glass lenses to focus and amplify the laser further without expending unnecessary energy, as well as massive xenon flash lamps to optically pump the laser itself before it leaves the barrel. Due to the immense heat of the laser, the barrel contains 'veins' of liquid nitrogen to cool the barrel after firing, as well as heat resistant coatings.
The laser cannon itself contains a miniature Pyroelectric Neutron Generator, however, instead of smashing the Tritium to create Fusion, the Tritium is launched alongside the laser upon firing, creating a hybrid Laser-Particle weapon. The weapon has a laser rangefinder to designate range and other information. We're never actually going to hit theoretical max output though, if we do it will almost literally be like firing a Red Dwarf star at something.
-10x ASK45 "Flashers", Airburst Missiles designed to stun and disorient Kaiju. Initial detonation is very similar to that of a flashbang, a flash to blind and a bang to deafen. The missile also releases 'confetti', as the Engineers call it. This confetti is super reflective polished Aluminum chaff, to further blind Kaiju who recover from the flash.
-Zephyr Bladeshield, a blade retracted inside of the shield, based on the Australian Stingblade technology. A blade laced with carbon nanotubing to channel thermal energy.
-120mm BK120 Autocannon. Mounted in the 'head' of the Jaeger, mostly used in melee ranges. The cannon fires HEIAP superheated Tungsten Filament rounds.
-Dual Thermite Injectors mounted in the chest. The rods shoot out from the chest and pierce the skin of a Kaiju, Thermite reserves are then pumped into the Kaiju, mixing in the barrel and igniting right as the Thermite leaves the barrel. Mixed in with the Thermite are explosives designed to detonate and splash the Thermite inside of the Kaiju's body. The rods themselves are coated in a fast acting nectrotic venom, its speed dependent on the temperature.
Heavy armor in the chest and right arm. Medium armor in the lower half of the body and left arm. The Zephyr Bladeshield acts as a balance and offers heavy armor.
-Dual Thorium MOX Nuclear Fusion Generators
-Backup Lithium Ion Supercell Batteries
Backstory on the Jaeger:
The Centuraite Modular series has never been actually produced, quick advances in technology and weaponry kept the Centuraites from being produced, as the designs were constantly being upgraded and updated. Until they just shrugged and decided to make one, the fourth version of the Centuraite, which had gone under one major upgrade. Hence, Mk.IVb. This particular Jaeger is the first of the Centuraite series and is brand spankin new.
The lower body is a known weakpoint, as well as the upper left arm. The Jaeger is designed to be a fire support machine, supporting the other, frontline battle Jaegers in combat by means of long range firepower. Once in melee range, the Centaurite can hold its own for a short while with its Bladeshield, but it wont hold for long, as it is simply outclassed in melee range.
The SK-PMK001K, although a very powerful cannon, has a very long cooldown time. The weapon itself can fire indefinitely, but the barrel cannot.
The arc of sight on this machine is quite limited, and it cannot turn its head.
