Campaign of the Month: June 2014
Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Senior Tech Shamus Harper "Ironhide"
Lead Tech of the Iron Dingoes "Robotics" Division
Shamus Harper was originally the lead tech assigned to Captain Michael Anderson “Fixer”, as his personal assistant to maintain his Mech. Although Fixer tends to do much of his own maintenance, Shamus, or “Ironhide”, completes much of the routine work. Shamus is a Veteran NPC MechTech, though he has many important skills and a growing background in engineering work. His skills and insights have helped the program to develop the GloryHound Exoskeleton.
Senior Tech Harper is known as “Ironhide”, due to his good nature and inability to take great offense to insults, and is one of Fixer’s oldest friends. Originally from the streets with him, the two joined the 13th Provisional Company as AsTechs, but both quickly proved to be natural techs. He was among the lesser techs rescued from conscription at the 405th AeroBase on System – Pilpala.
Quirky, sarcastic, funny, a bit of an egocentric, but undoubtedly a natural Tech, he has a skill (and interest) in cybernetics, and usually spent all of his free time in the company of the line units Mechs and other machines, fixing and upgrading them as he may.
After years serving Fixer as his assistant, in April of 3021, Ironhide was given a promotion to Senior Tech and placed in charge of the unit’s recently acquired Battle Armor – Tornado PA, and all research and maintenance for said suits. At present, his collection of techs are assigned to * “The Dingoes’ Fangs”, and stationed aboard the “Pandora’s Box” while they acclimatize themselves with their new assignments.
