Alarik Desius

Battle-Scarred Turian Soldier

Description:

ASPECTS:

HIGH CONCEPT: BATTLE SCARRED TURIAN VETERAN

  • Invoke: Alarik has been under fire in virtually every kind of combat situation. That experience allows him to be more decisive and effective on the battlefield.
  • Compel: . Turians are tough but even they can only take so much punishment. Alarik’s scars and old wounds can often be a drawback in both social and physical situations.

TROUBLE: OLD SOLDIERS NEVER DIE…

  • Invoke: Alarik has seen battle across the galaxy.
  • Compel: War is hell and Alarik’s eyes have seen it all. And sometimes that haunts him. He also has an inability to function properly in regular society or dealing with non-military.

FORMER MEMBER OF THE BLACK WATCH

  • Invoke: Well trained in spec op situations.
  • Compel: Alarik did many terrible things while part of this spec ops group. He made many enemies. Compel him to do something that might be necessary but ruthless.

TRUSTED LIEUTENANT OF THE TRAITOROUS SAREN

  • Invoke: He learned a lot during this time making many connections and learning how to be ruthless and driven enough to get any job done.
  • Compel: After Saren’s fall any who were connected to him were ostracized. Even though he had left before Saren had found Sovereign he was blacklisted and widely hated due to his connection to the traitorous Specter. He also maintains some of Saren’s contempt for humans.

ARELIA TAUGHT ME WHAT IS TRULY WORTH FIGHTING FOR

  • Invoke: For the first time in his life Alarik has someone to fight for.
  • Compel: For the first time in his life Alarik has something and someone to lose. And the galaxy is a dangerous place.

  • RADIATION RESISTANCE (-1):
    Turians gain Radiation +2 to rolls to resist Radiation.

  • TURIAN TOUGHNESS (-1):
    Turians are innately tough pushing through incredible pain. They can take an additional Mild Physical Consequence.

STUNTS (-1 REFRESH)

  • RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME
    Alarik always seems to be in a safe spot, without moving in any obvious way. When engaged in physical combat, he may use Resolve as his combat skill when defending, moving, or taking cover as long as he merely saunters—no sprints allowed. To the outside world, it appears that he is simply staying put, unfazed as gunfire and other attacks miss him by scant inches.

BACKGROUND

Alarik Desius joined the Turian military as soon as he reached the age of consent. He took to the disciplined military life like a fish to water. Not surprising given that his father and his father’s father were both veterans who served with distinction. He graduated at the top of his training class and was able to pick his assignment. He selected a place in the 43rd Marine Division just as his father had. Their slogan Fior Gor Bas (Faithful Until Death) became a defining conviction in his life. He fought tenaciously against the Alliance in the First Contact War.

RISING CONFLICT

Alarik’s commitment to excellence and willingness to do anything to accomplish his mission brought him to the attention to the Commander of the infamous Black Watch. Although it broke his heart to leave the 43rd he was recruited by the black ops group and served there for over a decade. He does not speak of his time in Black Watch. Mostly because all of his missions with them were classified but it is clear from the haunted look in his eyes that that isn’t the only reason.

THE STORY

STORY TITLE:

GUEST STARRING:

During a particularly gritty Black Watch mission Alarik met a newly appointed Spectre by the name of Saren. The two realized that they shared many of the same goals and a partnership was formed. Alarik left Black Watch and they worked together for many years before they had a falling out. Alarik never speaks of what caused the rift but it was around the same time as Saren’s discovery of Sovereign.
