Here I am updating my kit according to the evolution of technology in the past years. Notice that not much has changed, though...
Nickname: That's the "nick". Entire first name and surname are just too stupid to mention. And by the way, once the shit hits the fan, that doesn't matters that much, isn't that?
Region: Sardinia, southern Europe
White male, 1 Mt/60 Cms tall (around 5'4" if I wasn't wrong in the math), short dark brown hair and brown eyes. Clean shaven and tries to keep his hair as short as possible for hygienic reasons. At first sight thin, he is actually strong and energic, with great stamina, capable of sustaining physical fatigue for a long amount of time. Able to run quickly over medium distances for several minutes (not that he's able to do the NY marathon, but if it's about putting enough distance between himself and a hord of hungry Zs, well...). Again, although short and thin, he is perfectly able to hold on the recoil of most firearms (anything under .50-BMG *GM note-- up to heavy recoil). He has a sight problem (myopia) which requires him to use optics on long arms, especially when shooting in the dark (no problems with handguns).
Current (at game start) attire:
- Light-frame glasses with magnetes for quick-attach/detach of sun lenses.
- Crispi "SWAT" boots
- Standard "Uniforme di Servizio e Combattimento Desertica" (Full Desert-Tan Service/Combat suit of the Italian Army; new pixelated camo pattern) complete with full MercWorx MW tactical gilet in "Coyote Tan" camo.
- No-Limits Extreme-tech full body armour (semi-rigid armour for bikers... very effective against accidents... and against zombie bites!) - no ballistic protection (a bulletproof vest equals to additional weight, furthermore it would be highly unlikely to be usable in said situation)
- Woolrich Elite/TangoDown LLC "EOTAC Operator Hat" cap
- Mechanix Wear "Impact-3" protective/tactical gloves with carbon-fiber reinforced shell (made in Italy, launched at the 2009 EXA expo)
Vehicle: OPEL Campo, 2001 3.1TD DK 4x4 Pick up with hard cover. Diesel engine with additional GPL system.
Avg mileage: around 100 Kilometers with 7,1 litres of fuel (around 62 miles with 1.87 gallons)
Shy and introvert at first, becomes the more and more sympathetic and open once a bond deepens. Nonetheless, he has lost all he had in his "former" life since he has had no religious faith, instead firmly rational.
Background: In his mid 20s, recently got a University degree. His University degree in Communications and Journalism has however led him to develop further inter-personal/public relationship skills.
A cinema lover, he has spent his youth developing a deep personal philosophy. Through his journalistic work, he has especially taken interest in disaster response and emergency preparedness procedures in terms of biological, chemical and nuclear emergencies.
His passion for firearms, which has turned into career as a firearms journalist; has accordingly developed a general knowledge and above average marksman's skills despite being rejected from the Military draft due to a sight defect. has however developed good skills in firearms.
Hired by a gun magazine in the late years of his University, he has witnessed the outbreak of Zombie epidemic in Italy by using the magazine and its website to advise civilians and Police/Military personnel about what to do to face the situation. Until the last moment before the collapse of the Italian Internet, he received the Securityarms.com "call."
