    Rechnov 'Drake' Dezakovich


    edgydrakeold.jpg


    Description:


    Tall, long blonde hair, hazel eyes, athletic build, mixed ethnicity (Asian + Russian)

    Rechnov is a strong-willed man, and a formidable fighter, both things he inherited from his father. He did not, however, inherit his father's dimwit. Rechnov might be brave, but he isn't a fool.

    He has seen battle often, as his scars show. He's witnessed many friends' and family members' lives cut short by the horrors of war. He thinks he has become used to death, but truthfully he is only numb to the pains that come with it.

    Anthem:



    Backstory:

    Rechnov Dezakovich was born sometime in the early 2000's to Dmitri Dezakovich and Janette Lee. He spent most of his youth in a military bunker with his mother, while his father was working as a militarized private security officer in various human settlements. He did not see his father much, and when the Combine invaded in 2010, he never saw his father again. He remained in the bunker until he was 16, when an incident he refuses to disclose left the bunker abandoned and his mother dead.

    From that point onward, he was raised by Yuri Rebenov, a rebel operative who lived in the outskirts of City 17, and a friend of his father. There, he was trained in martial arts and firearms, until word reached him that his father had been killed by the Combine during a Civil Protection raid. He finished his training with Yuri and later went on to join a Resistance group known as the Fat Nargodians.

    Rechnov Dezackovich, now called Drake by his comrades, was a notable young rebel leader during the waning days of the first Combine occupation. As a member of the Fat Nargodian rebel organization, he was given the leadership position in the Fighting Revivals cell, a cell that was once led by his now-deceased father.

    During the Global Uprising, Drake, along with his comrades, supported Resistance efforts in City 17, before being transferred to North America just a few days before the Citadel was destroyed.

    In the year
    2023, Rechnov, his men, and the New Dawn disappeared without a trace after repelling an attack on the New Dawn's refugee settlement, Haven. He and his men were last seen boarding a ship, bound for a Combine installation in Eastern Europe.

    Drake's fate, as with his whereabouts, are currently unknown.

    Nick Grey
    Description: A 5'11 bulky male, looks like the average cop you'd see.


    Early life: Born in New York with no siblings, Nick mostly lived with his father for most of his life. When he was four, his mother was kidnapped after someone broke into the house. The police searched for a long time, but after they finally found the person and arrested them, his mother had been killed. This left a lot of pressure on Nicks dad, and they were forced to move into a smaller house as his dad could not pay for the expenses of the house they were living in. Regardless of what happened, Nick was still able to finish school and go to college, his dad helping him pay for the expenses. Once he finished college, he pursued further on becoming a lawyer. Before he could though, the portal storms happened, and the whole world went to war. Nick drove to where his father was, but when he got there, he didn't find his dad but he did find a note. It had been from his father, leaving a message for Nick: "Nick, the whole world has apparently gone to hell and I have no other way how to contact you. If you've come here in hopes of looking for me, go no further. I've joined up with the military to stop whatever is attacking us. I don't want you getting hurt to find me, so I've left plenty of food and water in the attic, hide there for awhile and don't answer the door to anyone. If the fighting stops, I'll try to come back here and meet up with you. I'll see you soon! -Dad " Doing what he was told, Nick hid in the attic for awhile. Once the fighting settled down, he was waiting for his father to come back. However, his father never did. So he waited, but he never came back. One day, Nick was still waiting, and someone knocked on his door. He thought that was his father and was going to go down and open it, but then he remembered was his father told him. So instead he just waited to see if his father would find a way in. Instead though, someone busted down the door. Eventually, someone in a yellow shirt with a pistol came into the attic, and Nick thought he was done for. However, the man was nice, and was not there to harm Nick in any way, informing Nick to just come with him. There were other people busting down other houses around him, and Nick was informed he was going to be transferred into a city, as to why they why they were searching for people in the houses. He was then transferred to City 24, where he lived there for a really long time.

    Life in City 24: Nathan lived in one of the small apartments that was for the citizens. Nick didn't find himself liking the city, as the city was filled with garbage everywhere and too many times he found himself being in a situation where someone tried selling him things that were illegal. One day, Nick found himself in an area that was illegal and off limits. Forgetting which way he had come from, he searched for a way back into a legal area. But he had walked in to the wrong area, and sooner or later he got guns pointed at him, with him getting mugged. As he gave up his wallet, he saw some terrible things. There were CCA units that were being burned and someone crying as someone else-likely a close person to them was getting hanged. Nick came to the realization that these were the dangerous anti-citizens people were talking about. Nick accepted his fate, as he was most likely going to be killed. The anti-citizens put a bag over his head, tied his hands together and proceeded to move him somewhere that was unknown. But then out of nowhere, Nick was dropped to the floor, and he started hearing gunshots all over the place. Nick was picked up and he heard what sounded like to be CCA officers. Eventually Nick found himself with the bag off his head, although still tied. There was a CCA officer across the table from him. He was being interrogated. With no point in lying, Nick told the truth. The officer had taken notes of what he said, and Nick was let free with only one ration deduction. He ran off to his apartment to process what just had happened to him. He could barely get any sleep that night. He began thinking about how his life just got saved from those officers. With no options left, he decided that the CCA wasn't so bad as people made it out to be, and applied to become one of them. Not only could Nick be able to stop crimes like what just happened to him, this could be his "career" as he was never able to pursue the career he wanted.

    Current Life: Nick is always the type of person to screw around, but despite this he takes things seriously when the time comes. As a cop, he usually would be nice on citizens, but if he was around other cops he'd act brutal and menacing like a CCA officer would due to his pride. However, if he was just on normal patrol duty with another cop, most of the time he'd be messing around. Although he has been in near death situations, but he believes that stopping the crimes of the city to protect the rest of the people is the main factor of his duty, and sacrifices must be made. Eventually he got transferred out of the city to where he is now and he never saw his patrol partner again, one who he was actually good friends with.

    Marcus Alexander

    [​IMG]

    This pessimistic Canadian never bought into the propaganda and his reasons for serving the occupation were always selfish, he saw the Union for what they were and chose to be on the right side of things. Overtime he grew to believe his own lies and has used them to justify his crimes whether that be killing one friend to save a dozen or countless other compromising choices. The result was a strategy dedicated to survival, to make the fighting as quick and brutal to dissuade further resistance and save more lives, at least that is the lie he's adopted most recently.

    Alexander was on a mission hunting down the resistance on the East coast high above the action providing air support when a coalition of insurgents destroyed a vital occupation installation halfway around the world. In the following years he's been kept on ice in the new earth capital...

    City 8.

    [​IMG]

    The capital of combine activity on Earth, City 8 has become the crown jewel of occupation where it's power is undisputed with an iron grip on the citizens who have enjoyed an above average lifestyle. Every so often Alexander is brought back with other CSAD agents to execute missions of importance in hot zones across the planet. He remains committed to the cause rather than admit it was all for nothing and will defend it with his life. (And he only needs ten more shoes. )​

    Alice Boswell

    [​IMG]

    Boswell was fighting for his life in an eastern European facility until he wasn't. He blinked out of existence along with hundreds of other comrades and enemies alike. However, it seems his hiatus was one of the shorter ones. Boswell awoke in a field of debris not far from the site, the entire mountain thawed out. He spent a few weeks gathering supplies from the wreckage before heading off to rejoin his European comrades. In the years since he's fought many battles in Europe in dozens of cities but seems no closer to victory. It was a few after the battle that the European resistance re-established contact with the Americans and a new plan was formed to renew the decades long fight for liberation. In the intervening years many battles were fought and many plans were tried but victory was always beyond our grasp. Several more attempts were made by the Union to bring in reinforcements and each time the global resistance fought them back.

    Now years later much of the resistance is bled dry with their momentum lost. All they have to show for their effort is a planet in tatters and many lost comrades. Some cells are considering surrender while others abandon the fight entirely. The crown jewel of the occupation lays relatively untouched, however. There is one last move to play. ​

    Jiang Hao Yi


    (ambiance feels)
    The one and only, standing at a decent 5'9 with black hair and eyes. He rocks a beard with goatee which has been relatively well maintained.
    Since the beginning he's been there, maybe he'll see the end too?

    Jiang is from Guangzhou, China. North of Hong Kong. He started as a small time thug with two other men in City 25, eventually going on to join the beginnings of the Dawn in the undergrounds prior to the uprising. He unintentionally became a fighter for the newly formed resistance and went on to start the initial guerilla attacks on the Combine stationed within the city.

    Ever since then, he's stuck with the Dawn.

    Maybe it was a good choice? Maybe it wasn't.
    He's seen more, done more than any usual chinamen should. The horrors he's encountered on this road to freedom haven't left him, seared into his memory for the rest of his life..
    All he wants is some good fucking ramen, to see the end of this war and finally live in some dinky apartment with a decent view. A nice bed, some good food and someone to make coming home meaningful.
    From a simple thug, to a well regarded freedom fighter. He's made many friends, losing many of them through the years and even doing his own fair share of killing.

    Now he's at the top. Time will tell whether or not he's ready for it.

    "Hopefully I'll see you again."

    Jackson talking to an unknown man in a forest bordering Russia

    Much isn't known about Jackson's true origin, from what little he shares about himself to how little he's actually been involved with major efforts to push for a change. However this isn't like that.

    Jackson was born in Donetsk Ukraine to a stay at home mother and his father Maksym who worked in the mines. His childhood saw him taking up studies in art and literature until his father died in a mining accident. They weren't uncommon after the Soviet Union had collapsed, however the whole ordeal left a now 15 year old Jackson alone with his mother. Seeing no other choice him and his mother sold what they didn't need and took the money they had to travel West to Poland, this however would be the last time Jackson is able to travel willingly as not long after the portal storms had begun. Trapped in the city of Kraków things grew worse and it wasn't long until they came. When the seven hour war started Jackson had lost his mother in the chaos, he managed to join a group of people inside a sewer treatment plant to try and wait out the assault. Eventually a group of synths found them and Jackson only managed to escape by hiding inside a gap in the wall made by a explosion. Once they had left he made his way for the sewers, it's unknown how long he managed to live down there until he was found. But all that is known is when he was infact found he was now 17 and immediately transported to the nearest city, once there Jackson had officially become Jackson to insure he had some sort of peace of mind.

    elsetge.cat_gas-mask-wallpaper_282967..jpg A relatively recent picture taken of Jackson in an unknown location.
    Once within the city now under the control of the combine Jackson was alone and without anyone to turn to, that was until he found a man calling himself bird. This meeting sent him on the path of rebellion, groups came and went for him. King's men, The Red Star, The New Dawn. Out of everything however it was the Red Star that left their mark on him. Following the death of it's leaders and of his friends Jackson further grew into a loner role in life. He would be seen in the background of a great many battles and photographs until eventually fleeing the city during the meltdown of the Citadel. He found himself alone and living amongst the harsh wilderness for some time then. Until eventually, just eventually being found again by a groups of rebels.

    MARK RONSON
    [​IMG]
    -He with other members searching for supplies.-
    DESCRIPTION:
    Facial Description: Blue eyes, A scar on his forehead, Brown Hair.
    General Description: 5'9, Standard Male Body-build, Can be found wearing black mollie vest and black beanie sometimes wearing a gasmask, armed with a M16A2 with M203 40mm Grenade Launcher attachment , MP7 Spec Ops as secondary weapon.
    Personality: Mark Ronson is a strategist, patience man, he's good at following order and a good friends to people he knows.
    BACKSTORY:
    Mark Ronson, though it wasn't always his name. Also known as Floyd Johnson, born in late 2000 Paris, France. His father was a US Marine, tasked with clearing out the Black Mesa incident in 2001 and because of this he hasn't seen his father instead, living with his uncle, Mark. At the time, Paris was under military control.
    Around 2010 he had been out with his Uncle, who was an officer before it all, looking for medical supplies near an abandoned military installation. A portal opened and the Combine's invasion began. His Uncle took Floyd to a nearby safehouse, made for only the most dire of situations. Both of them stayed there for months, ultimately being captured and taken to the Combine version of Paris; City 12. During their time in the city, his Uncle had taken up to secretly forming a small resistance cell while training Floyd with firearms and basic hand to hand combat. Most importantly, he taught him how to strategize, plan and execute. His Uncle would later die accidentally during a CCA raid on his apartment. Afterwards he had remained under the radar for years, later changing his name to Mark Ronson in honor of his late uncle.

    Around 2020 he had moved to City 25, this mainly due to the Lambda Resistance and their rather big influence within European cities. While he was there he dabbled with the underground, meeting up with a small time thug; Jiang. They both grouped together, Mark being the brains, Jiang being the brawn. Both of them joined with the Dawn, meeting Drake along with other members, and during the 2021 Global Uprising, assisted in raiding the city's Nexus. [​IMG]
    -Picture of Mark and Jiang-
    Next in 2022 during Armageddon while raiding the city's citadel, Mark passed out upon reaching the office within the massive super structure. As he woke up, he found himself in ruins. He immediately met up with the Dawn's remaining members , going off in search of Haven. 2023 is when he participated in the sacking of Haven as he fought against CSAD forces in defense. He, Jiang and other members of the Dawn were last seen boarding onto a ship headed off to Eastern Europe.

    Nathan Haynes
    Backstory
    Nathan Haynes was your average guy- He was never the smartest, but he wasn't really dumb. He excels in labor and menial tasks. When the CCA & Combine invasion came around he wimped out and just gave up rather than risked his life. Eventually, his cousins pushed him to rebel (And his cousins are idiots. And dead). They gave him a weapon and then they drew attention to where they called home. A raid quickly followed, and as seems like a pattern at this point, he ran. Nathan was taught all the wrong things too, so he wasn't going to make it. Then he met the team. Vasumati quickly scalded him into not firing without reason, and actually taught him the basics. He really enjoyed him time with them, and slowly became better. Nathan was smarter, still not the smartest, but he was a valuable member.

    Description
    He stands around 5'11, and is Caucasian. His eyes are a light shade of blue, and the scars on his face seem mostly gone. He walks if he always has somewhere to be, even if he doesn't. His demeanor seems more casual, more slouched. He has brown hair.
