Campaign of the Month: June 2014
Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Senior Tech Aaron Birkoff (Deceased)
Former Computer Tech of the Iron Dingoes C&C Group
A skilled computer operator, Senior Tech Aaron Birkoff had a marked knowledge of programming and computer operations. He also had displayed a knowledge of guns and some martial arts work.
Senior Tech Birkoff was a Veteran Computer Tech NPC. He was noted as having interests in “…modern cinematic docu-dramas…”, and was a resident expert in identifying various rare vehicles and BattleMechs not usually found in traditional “Warbook” programs available to BattleMech T&T arrays. He had also picked-up a basic understanding of Battlearmor technologies, and could assist the unit in repair work.
Senior Tech Birkoff was also a key member of * “The Werewolves”, and served as their communications and computers expert. Though not very skilled in most traditional military matters, his skills had a value that demanded his inclusion in the unit.
Originally hired as a technical lead to work with the Ground Technical Group, he was moved into the (then) new C&C Group, since it needed a couple skilled computer operators, and he was available. Typical among what one might call “technorats”, he kept to himself and didn’t bother others.
Senior Tech Birkoff died during a key operation in The Free-City of Von Doom’s Downport at the height of the Small War. Assisting in evacuating Senior Tech (Intelligence) Selena Marie Demarkos, as well as assassinating the bulk of the League of Free Nation’s chief military leadership, he and the Werewolves fought their way out before blowing the hotel complex they had been meeting in. He died from multiple V-LAW rocket hits during the final evacuation, though the rest of the unit made it out alive with “the Asset”. He was buried in * Landhold : Garrison, and honored in a memorial honoring all the fallen Iron Dingoes soldiers of the Small War.
