Captain Walker McGuire
Security Officer of the Iron Dingoes, Senior ArmsMaster
Walker McGuire is a Veteran Infantry NPC.
Serving in the * “The Cerberus Command” portion of the Dingoes, overlooks several squads of infantry troops, who maintain the perimeter of the Dingoes base assets. In addition, he acts as a senior WeaponsMaster for the unit, dealing with training in close-quarters weapons and hand-to-hand combat training.
As the unit’s lead “WeaponsMaster”, he works at maintaining the unit’s small arms armories and is assisted in this duty by Lieutenant JG Dominic Reed, who looks after the heavier munitions in the Dingoes’ DropShip fleet, its armor and Line Mech units. He is assisted in training work by Master Trooper Grant Burke “Sabre”, the unit’s senior non-commissioned officer.
A tall, lanky man with a weathered face, Senior Trooper Walker McQuire is another Duchy of Oriente member who joined the 3rd Marik Militia as a free lancer although he had no actual military experience. Instead, he had a long and successful career in the securtiy forces of various planets, ending his career on Oriente as a well-known officer.
McGuire is a very vocal fellow who will share his opinion of anything and everything. The only problem is getting him to shut-up. He can seem very critical of people’s mistakes, but, in all fairness, he remains very straighforward about his own. The fact is, he is not so much critical, as painfully honest. He never learned the value of keeping quiet and letting matters blow over.
McGuire is best-known for his Oriente accent, and his frequent uttereance s of “G’day Mate”, and “No worries, Mate”. He tends to call infiltrators “Bunyips” and Mechs “Bigguns”.
A veteran in security, he prefers pistols and SMGs to long rifles and assault weapons.
In late-3023, he was promoted to full Captain, and given over as lead officer of the entire security arm of Cerberus Command, commanding the infantry company that looks after the Perimeter Security Group, “The Hellhounds”. He is seen as the heir to Mad Mike, slotted to eventually command the entire battalion.
