MechWarrior Marcus "Backdraft" Matsumoto

Brash Young Pilot


A Draconis Combine ex-patriot, MechWarrior Matsumoto was a young pilot forced into the life of a mercenary. He was a Regular MechWarrior, with an over-abundance of love towards burning things, easily accomplished in his family’s ancient FS9-H Firestarter, which he had had customised to resemble one of the original FS9 models, the FS9-A.

He served in the Line of * “The Dire Dingoes” using a company AWS-8Q Awesome.


He initially began service under a “Leash Contract” with * “The Iron Dingoes” aboard a company Mech in their Line force. This has since been converted into a full contract position.

He was promoted to Trooper following the combat on the plains outside Tashport, to claim the “Kiss of Death” in late-September, 3025. He was promoted to full MechWarrior following the unit’s extended campaigns in the 4th Succession War and a pirate raid into the Periphery, in mid-3031.

He died along with most of his companions during operations in the War of 3039 on Elidere IV when the Line forces were attacked by the 9th and 10th Ghost Regiments.
