Name

Jake Wilson

Concept

Infantry/Combat Medic

Power

Focus: Jake can use the the inherent adrenaline rush during a difficult task to his advantage. By focusing on what he needs to complete, and letting his sub-conscious problem solving abilities take over, he can accurately place shots at long distances, find and exploit openings in hand to hand combat, or stem blood loss and treat wounds effectively. At the cost of an Action Point, it grants +2 to ranged, melee or medical checks.

Aspects

Foundation Trained: Jake's employment with the Foundation has left him with knowledge and skills involved in the capture and destruction of paranormal entities, as well as knowledge in combat with said entities. Unfortunately, said experience also includes many mental attacks that have mentally scarred him, and resurface occasionally when facing psychic paranormals.
Paranoia: With Jake's previous employment in the military, and his time in the Foundation, Jake has become fairly paranoid. Focusing on anything out of the ordinary, and constant looks over his shoulder are common.
Honor before Reason: Jake will not hesitate to put himself in danger for the benefit of others. He refuses to leave any fallen comrades, and will risk his life to protect others.
Lovable Oaf: He's a bit of a goof, who cracks jokes at any time. They are mostly harmless, and he tries to avoid stepping on toes. But even though he can, and will be be serious when the situation calls for it, sometimes he just can't help himself and will crack a joke, even if it isn't the time or place for it.

[T] Bug Slayer: This aspect can be tagged to allow a (+,+,+,0) to Survival or Perception when searching for a monster in the night.

Personal History

Jake spent his life after high school in the U.S. Army. Enlisting as infantry, he was sent to Airborne and Ranger schools. Afterwards, we was sent with the 75th Ranger Regiment, and deployed to the Middle East. He received a Bronze Star, and multiple commendations for his acts while deployed. He was also able to make E-5 in a few short years before retiring after a particularly traumatizing deployment that resulted in the death of his best friend. He was picked up by the Foundation as an Agent because of his eye-catching record. He spent his time with the Foundation either doing field missions in the Middle East or running missions in the Tamlin House. He was on his annual vacation in his summer hunting home in Alaska when the Event occurred, leaving him stranded. Since then, he's survived off the land, and slowly started making his way towards New York, where he hopes to find some signs of civilization, or in his words, “Disaster movie New York, in 3D!”

Miscellaneous

Six foot tall, 190 pounds with brown eyes, and brown hair means that Jake doesn't stand out much physically. However, just because he isn't remarkable in looks, doesn't mean he should be underestimated, and he has a bit of a peeve about people doing just that. However, if you earn his trust, then you have nothing to fear, as he will willing risk his life to protect those close to him. Also, he has a thing about wanting to shoot Cthulu in the face. Don't ask.
