Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Master Techs John and Susan Gibbons
Command Support Staff of the Iron Dingoes.
A married couple, Master Techs John and Susan Gibbons are skilled cooks and both are capable of driving transports. They possess a small hover truck (their FastHopper 90 ), loaded with their worldly possessions, and have happily worked for the PCs as support staff since before its inception. They have proven to be a welcome addition to the unit, maintaining the base camp and providing countless hours of work to keep everyone well-fed, assisted by several other “Dependents”. They serve in * “The Dingo Pack”.
John and Susan are considered the heart of the unit’s technical teams, and have largely become administrative in their activities, though they still take their share of work during “down-time”, cleaning and cooking along with everyone else. Susan’s bacon omelette’s are still amazing. They have two small children.
Formerly of the forgettable community of Custer in the northern territory region of the Black Hills of. Planning to leave the failing boomtown, the couple sold all their foodstuffs to the PCs and were hired to provide them with “real food”, something the former prisoners haven’t had in over a year… and Susan’s morning bacon omelettes were always to die for…
The pair have become the leaders of among the Dependents of the unit. They are assisted by Senior Tech Vera Weatherly, who looks after some of the less glamorous aspects of daily ship-board life, such as organizing cleaning and barracks, and Senior Tech Glenda Wright, who has taken over much of the prep work for the growing number of Dingoes troopers.
The couple have since been promoted to “Master Techs”, and number as the first actual support staff of the Iron Dingoes, showing great loyalty and trust to the unit. They remain as their senior-most logistics staff, and have taken a position as Master Techs in the Dingoes support staff, a position analogous to a master sergeant. They are also leading figures among the parents of the unit’s dependents, and are often considered the representatives of this “caste” in Dingoes service.
