Major Kanto Jokukad "Pitbull"

Ex-Patriate of House Kurita, MP : Unit S-5 (Civilian Liaison) and temporary S-6 (Security)

Description:

A former MP, “Pitbull” is the Unit S-5 (Civilian Liaison), and well-trained in security and civilian liaison duties. He is often browsing with other units and seems capable of “acquiring” many items, goods and personnel the unit might need in any given situation, or that unit logistics demands. Pitbull was recently promoted to “XO” with the sudden departure of “Major” Charles Alder “The Voice”, and has taken the portfolio of “Secuirty” (Unit S-6) for the present while the chain of command is reworked…

Pitbull is considered the best pilot and gunner in the unit, and presently pilots one of the unit’s larger Mechs, a highly modified BLR-1G Battlemaster. Pitbull has recently begun wearing The Fisher King’s Neurohelmet in his Mech…

In the field, Pitbull tends to direct younger members of the unit, critiquing their actions and keeping the battles short and fierce. His promotion to Major is a mark of the tactical abilities Pitbull has developed, and he holds the position of XO in the unit. He is arguably the best pilot in the unit, and his position in one of the unit’s heaviest Mechs, a Battlemaster ensures he can dominate a firefight. His Mech has also been outfitted with a Beagle Active Probe, a SL-Vintage large pulse laser, and has been modified to employ energy weapons exclusively, with few heat issues.

Bio:

Originally from House Kurita, Pitbull does not appear to be of “cultured” Japanese origins, but rather betrays a history of time with the darker side of Kurita culture, the Oyabun. He is direct and rarely minces words, sometimes plainly so, and not easily given over to subtlety. His call-sign of Pitbull comes from his tenacious attitude at achieving a personal goal, and never letting it rest, though others claim it comes from his bark not being worse than his bite…

As Unit S-5 (Civilian Liaison), Pitbull is also the unit scrounger, always on the look-out for salvage and contacts that can help both the unit and himself in the future. He is the lead negotiator in all contract discussions with civilian personnel or contractors the unit might hire. The “day-to-day” potential employees and pilots are often given over to the unit S-1 (Personnel), LtSG Massimo De Luca “Advocate”. In command meetings, it is his voice that often carries a great deal of weight, due to his skills as a pilot and sheer force of personality.

He has chosen Tech Alexander Talbot “Elminster” as his personal lead tech, a man proven to be a good at his work, but also an artist and closet writer.

Rumors had been circulating, that he and Tech Mitsuko Kitsune “Silver Lotus” might be “an item”, but he spends most of his time alone in his Mech, speaking about someone named “Cortana”, as though they were in a relationship…
