Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
MechWarrior Bodrick Thompson "Blaster"
Line Trooper in the Iron Dingoes
MechWarrior Bodrick Tomphson, or Blaster is a Regular Mech Pilot, with few other skills outside his Mech beyond working his way through the unit’s Mech-Bunnies. He pilots his ancestral WHM-6R Warhammer, Master.
Inheriting his WHM-6R Warhammer from his father, Blaster managed to make his way to the Mech-Dueling circuit on System – Dumassas, only to find the local House had been devastated in an ill-fated encounter with the Iron Dingoes. He demanded they hire him, and after proving his skills in a test, he was hired on a standard “Leash” contract of one year.
Having completed his term of residence with the Iron Dingoes, he took his pay and his refurbished Mech with him, and left the unit in System – Promise, planning to make his way with that mercenary-loving nation.
In May of 3021, having tired of Riot Control contracts in System-State – “The Unity of Promise” for the last 16 months, had returned to Dumassas , and discovered his old employers were in-system. They offered him another “Leash” contract, and he continues to once more serve the Line Mechs of the Dingoes.
He has taken a girlfriend in the form of a former barmaid from the western mining camps, Lolita Vergara. She lives as a dependent in * Landhold : Garrison, though her family are miners and farmers from the nearby highlands region along the Blue Mountains foothills.
In late-3031, after serving during the extended contract in the 4th Succession War and a short pirate-hunting contract into the Periphery, he was promoted to full MechWarrior serving the Line force.
