Possible story(Post-Gears 1, Pre-Geard 2): A King Raven crash lands in Port Farell, a short distance from Jacinto(Port Farell is where the survivors from Jacinto's sinking went in Jacinto's Remnants). The King Raven was carrying the parts to build another Light Mass bomb(as was intended to sink Jacinto in Gears 2). Delta squad and (Our Squad, so far Iota, Gamma, Kappa, and Omega have not been used) need to go and get the parts back before either the Locust or Stranded take them.

I'll make a character bio now.

Name: Darac Talet-Kai

Rank: Leuitenant

Description: Talet-Kai has a tribal tatoo on the right side of his face, even though he looks more Tyran than Pesang. He has a scar on his chin that is four jagged lines reaching from his bottom lip to the underside of his chin. He had black hair and brown eyes. He is 6' 4", but not wide like Cole. He wears blue-tinted shooting glasses either over his eyes on topic of his COG trashball cap(think baseball cap) with his Death's Head(It's the cog with the skull in it) emblem attached in the center, per regs. He also has his leiutenant's bars stenciled on the bill. He has a bandolier of Boomshot ammo over his chest plate. He has a holster for his Boltok pistol under his left arm. He has a baldolier around his left boot to hold sniper rounds. He has a sheath in his right boot to hold his knife, which is his bayonett from the Pendelum Wars. His sleeves end at his fourarm, and he wears gloves.

History: Darac was born to a COG sailor and a Pesang woman. They  married, and moved to Jacinto. He attended the same school as Marcus Fenix, Carlos and Domanic Santiago, but in a different grade. He was a new recruit in the Gears, and saw his first action at Anvil Gate. He was at Asphio Fields aswell, though his King Raven had been shot dowb and was forced to get the Pilot out of the area so they could be both extracted. He won an Embry Star for saving his platoon at Pelles toward the end of the war. During the Pendellum Wars, he took every course he could, from sniper training to medic training. He even has a certification to fly a King Raven. He was one of the few Gears who survived first contact on E-Day. After the deployment of the Hammer of Dawn, he became well know for creating inventive weapons. He welded a blade onto his sniper rifle, making it almost a sword. He added a blade to the bottom of his boltock Pistol, and three blades jutting out of the barrrel of hus Boomshot. His Lancer is the same one he was first issued, and he modified it to take the chainsaw bayonett. His bayonett is detachable, and still usable when not on the rifle. He still uses the same barrel assemble from years ago, doubling the matinence and the stoping power of his weapon. He always manages to make some sort of trap that the Locust always fall for. There have been rumors that he took down a Beserker in CQB, but he hasn't said anything about it.

Weapons: Longshot Sniper Rifle with Undermounted Blade, Boomshot with attached Blades, Boltock Pistol with Blade in the bottom of the grip, Lancer Assult Rifle, and blade.(He puts the Longshot on the left side of his back, the Lancer on the Right, and the Boomshot on the small of his back, with his pistol in it's holster and blade in his boot.)

Personality: He always makes jokes, ussualy dumb ones. He seems to be a bit detached from the idea of death, and somewhat reckless with his own life, but not with the lives of others. He likes flying, but much prefers his boots on the ground. He has a fear of the dark, which is quite rational considering the Locust and Kryll come from the dark underground.

Name: Devin "Nova" Taltos
Rank: Corporal
Description: At 5 feet tall and zero inches no one seems to take Devin very seriously, unless she's in the middle of blowing stuff up namely Locusts' holes. Her eyes are jade green and her hair is a brilliant crimson red, just brushing her ears and is extremely curly. She's got scars and tattoos just like the guys do. Her necklace has tags from her fallen friends, a locket from her sister Darria, who died on E-Day, and a phoenix charm from her MIA fiance, Nathanial Graham whose a Lieutenant from a still missing squad. She also has some letters and pictures in a sealed bag close to her heart. The pictures are of her and Nathanial's twin sons, Hayden and Alexandre. her parents, and last photo of Nathanial, before his squad went MIA. The twin boys now 2 years old are living with Devin's folks, so far safe from the Locusts attacks. When time allows Devin does go to see, spend time with them.

Devin knows how to use Lancer Assault Rifle, Gnasher Shotgun, as well as Snub Pistol but she prefers her standard kit being Bolo(Frag) Gernade, Scorcher Flamethrower, Longshot Sniper Rifle and a Torque Bow. When one is damaged or lost in battle she'll switch out to whatever is available to her.

Besides her combat skills she's best at explosives hence her nickname of Nova.

History: Devin and her older twin (not identical) sister Darria grew up pretty normal minus their trips to the factory were their father worked on building explosives. They'd usually sneak in when school was out watching and making a game of giving their father his dinner when he was working a late shift. They had crushes on the Sanitago boys but knew they weren't noticed. Their mother was often found working hard at the hospital. Once out of school Darria followed their mother's footsteps continuing to learn about medicine. Devin to no ones great surprise followed her father since she'd at first been denied Gear training due to her small stature. There were rumors that the recruiter had to retire early after the last meeting with Devin Taltos because her yells and cursing cost him some of his hearing.

Some time passed Devin still hung around the Gear barricks often dropping off explosive supplies with her father, how she met Nathanial Graham, he pulled some strings or maybe he'd twisted some elbows; either way he'd gotten Devin into Gear training.
During one of his leaves Devin managed to get pregnant. Much to her frustration. After the twin boys were born she went right back into her training, leaving the boys with her folks. After E-Day Devin lost contact with Nathanial and his squad, her sister was killed among so many others, including members of her own squad. She's been placed with a new squad and considers them like family now since besides her new squad, her parents and sons. They are all she's got.

OOC:You're welcome. Besides story stuff(Which you can get from Gearspedia, the games don't add a lot to work with in terms of RPG's. The books are much better, and that's what I'm running from. Delta will contain Marcus Fenix, Domanic Santiago, Damon Baird, Augustus 'The Cole Train' Cole, and Bernadette 'Bernie' Mataki.

Name: Shawn Michaels

Rank: Corporal (hopefully, soon to be promoted)

Description: 6'2, bulky, scar over his right eye starting above the eyebrow and ending on the cheekbone, bright-blonde buzzed hair, tanned skin, very attractive. Something of a ladies man. A few tattoos on his back, shoulders, and upper arms. Some random scars on his upper body and legs. Keeps 12 inch combat knife on his right side chest. Wears a do-rag like Fenix, except his is grey instead of black, to match his eyes. Shawn wears the COG tags of his fallen comrades on a necklace around his neck.

History: Born and raised in Jacinto to an ex Gear and a super-model, Shawn attended the same school as Fenix, the Santiago boys, and Darac, in the same grade as Marcus. Shawn and that trio were good, casual friends growing up. After joining the Gears and recieving sniper training, Shawn saw much the same action as everyone else. Anvil Gate, Aspho fields. His career only took a non-normal turn on E-day, where he fought with the some of the first units to make contact. Along with being one of the few survivors, Shawn was blown into a Locust tunnel for nearly an hour before finding his way out. He is famous among the Gears for his skill at killing locust with his knife. He is also famous for being bitten on the shoulder during the escape. After recieving treatment for the bite, Shawn got the teeth marks tattooed over so they would be there forever. His shoulder is now a legend in the Gears community.

Shawn got the scar on his face from a bloodmount in the tunnels that first day, which began his intense hatred for the creatures. Having been inside the Locust tunnels briefly, and having escaped, Shawn is not afraid of the tunnels. Or dark, underground places like many Gears such as Darac. Shawn often teases Darac for his fear, though he really respects it. Shawn also teases Sergeant Steele for never having left cities.

However, underneath the public, teasing, laughing Shawn, is a soldier who's hatred for the locust almost makes him animalistic in combat. When he gets in his zone, he is almost impossible to reach if what you're saying doesn't involve continuing the fight.

Michaels has a fiancee named Veronica whom he grew up with, the daughter of one of his mom's other model friends. On E-Day, Shawn led his decimated team on a single handed crusade to reach her apartment building and save her before the locust got there. Unlike some other girlfriends/wives/fiancee's, Veronica has seen what Shawn is like in combat, and is completely ok with it. This aspect of him, and the fact that he saved her life on E day, actually makes her feel more safe and comfortable with him.

Weapons: Shawn's standard loadout is his Lancer, a Snub pistol, a gnasher shotgun, and a longshot sniper rifle. Along with his ever-handy knife, this is what Shawn always goes out into combat with.

OOC:Um, the Locust didn't take prisoners until Operation Hollow Storm in Gears 2. You could say he was thrown down an E-Hole and survived the tunnels down there. The scars could be from a Bloodmount.

Bloodmount.

And FYI, Carlos and Marcus were in the same grade, while Dom was younger. Darac was 3 years older.

OOC: I like it. If you want, you can always bounce ideas off me in a PM or Skype. And what's the squad name? I'll use Lambda(V) for now. And we can start, because N-11's edit won't affect much in the beginning.

Act I: Morning Ride
  -Meet and Greet-

Lieutenant Darac Talet-Kai was standing next to a 'Dill, waiting for the rest of his squad and Delta-1. He had met both Sargent Marcus Fenix and Private Dominic Santiago when they were younger, along with the now dead Carlos Santiago. Marcus had seemed distant, almost like he wasn't there emotionally. But Carlos and Dominic had been normal guys. He knew two members of his squad, Devin Taltos and Shawn Michaels from his childhood as well, but was never anything more than acquaintances.  Ivan Steele was a city boy like the rest of them, but Talet-Kai had never met him. Michaels was an old friend from the Pendulum Wars, and apparently had met Steele before.

Private Agustus "Cole Train" Cole had been a thrashball super-star, and Talet-Kai had met him before Emergence Day at a game and another time after E-Day when Cole's squad helped support Lambda. Cole Train had impressed all of Lambda with his kill count. Talet-Kai then had a verbal battle with another member of Alpha, Corporal Damon Baird, which he had won after Rojas had intervened. Talet-Kai knew all about Fenix's trial, the merging of Alpha and Delta, and the Lightmass bombing. And the return of Bernadette Mataki.

Bernie, as she was better known, was a old friend. They had both seen the same action and chewed the same dirt in the Pendulum Wars. She was a good friend and Talet-Kai was happy to hear that she was still alive.

--Good Morning Lieutenant. How are you?-- Lieutenant Anya Stroud said over the radio. Talet-Kai had worked with the dispatchers before. She was a hell of a lot better than Matheson in Talet-Kai's humble opinion.

--'Morning Stroud. I'm fine, how are you?-- Talet-Kai asked. He made a point of being polite to the dispatchers, who dictate what the Gears in the field did.

--I'm fine. I'll be the woman behind the curtain today. Colonel Hoffman will be down there to brief Lambda and Delta in a few minutes.-- Stroud said, sounding worried.

--I'll keep Fenix and Hoffman from ripping each arms off and beating each other to death with the soggy ends, Anya. Don't worry, Bernie 'll kick all of their arses..-- Talet-Kai said.

--Thanks Darac. Stroud out.-- She said.

"Aw shite. Hopefully Bernie will keep Hoffman behaving, and Dom 'll keep Marcus docile." Darac said to himself.

BIC: Ivan walked over to where his new squad's rendezvous point as he approached the Dill He saw a man standing there walking up to him he saw that he was Lambda 1 walking over Steele Saluted "Sergeant Ivan Steele reporting sir" He figured this must be Lieutenant Darac Talet-Kai considering that he had those tribal tats he had seen a few islanders before but never served under one "Hopefully he wont turn out as horrible as my last LT" Ivan thought to himself as he sat down on one of the Dills wheels...
