Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Young Survivor from Sligo
Recruit Hunter is a junior technician who was rescued by the Iron Dingoes from System – Sligo. Young, but smart, he is still considered a ward of the unit, but has quickly adapted to life as a mercenary brat.
Hunter originally shadowed Lt SG Thadeus Marakov as a future technician and has since bounced between various teams, learning the skills to serve as a salvager in the Iron Dingoes Salvage Squads. He is finishing his formal training, having worked hard and with dedication to gain the rating of a Green NPC MechTech for purposes of routine salvage operations and simple maintenance. He has shown few other exceptional skills, generally keeping to himself and consuming every book he could get his teeth into.
A young boy with a heavy Polish accent, he has learned Russian and English over the years, usually under the tutelage of Captain Pol Baca “Templar” who has all but adopted the lad. The child rarely interacts with other adults, and grew fond of the * “The Dingo Cub Scouts” and its many future members of the Iron Dingoes. He has grown tall and blonde-haired, wearing typical tech’s clothing, and bearing his all-important tool kit. He carries a knife, and knows how to both use and maintain it, but doesn’t seem very fond of violence. Sometimes, when he thinks no one is looking, there is a lost look in his eyes, and he can be found staring out into the depths of space through windows, when found alone.
Little is known about the young lad known as Hunter. He claims to have grown-up in an isolated cave farm in the edges of the System – Sligo’s inhabited area. When the Bloody Corsairs hit the planet with nukes and his parents were killed by marauders, he was captured by them, and managed to escape into the city, living roughly among the extensive underground tunnels of the central city.
He was captured by a local CHUD band, a group of nuke survivors who went underground and did anything to survive, including eating other former citizens. Trooper Baca and Captain Mitchell Kitsune “Wraith” rescued him from the CHUD’s lair, and he stuck closely to Templar’s side throughout their whole stay on Sligo.
Attached to the developingprogram, he quickly adapted to the Dingoes educational system, and served part-time as an AsTech on Templar’s own Mech, while attending his local creche on-board the ship. He presently holds the rank of Senior Recruit, and is likely to become a formal Shadow Recruit sometime in the near future.
