AVAILABLE - Storylines One and Two (First Batch)
Guardian Field Engineers (Any gender, 25 to 35 yrs old)

Details:

The Guardians are the security arm of the centralized government throughout the Sphere region. Aside from essential security training, many also go on to specialized branches. Field Engineers are an example of such a specialization. They are sent regularly on missions throughout the region to build or repair technology of all kinds.

Entry Point: Lakebound Caravan - Outpost 145

This character is part of a small group of three Guardian Engineers who must find their way to the town of Westport to repair a Sphere Tower. They have just arrived at an outpost that serves as the gateway to the most frequently used route heading west. Please see the thread for more details.

Equipment:

Given the nature of their work, Field Engineers have access to a repair kit with a variety of tools. They would also have a standard issue laser hand gun and cutter.

Mother Superior, Resurgo Labs (female, 35-45 years old)

Details:

The Mother Superior is head of childbirth at Resurgo Labs. In this, she oversees new the birth of children who are born in government sanctioned labs. In 2042, the majority of children are born in this way, as changed to human genetic structure have made child deaths extremely common. Very few children born outside of lab conditions survive, and mothers very often will die with them at childbirth. This makes the job of Resurgo Labs extremely important to society as a whole.

Entry Point: Child of the State - Resurgo Labs [Boston]

This character is the head of a team comprised of geneticists and lab technicians. Please see the aforementioned intro thread for more details.

Knowledge:

The position of Mother Superior is an extremely important one awarded only to someone who has a remarkable understanding of human biology and who also has great leadership ability. She is a public figure whom many look up to in 2012 Boston. All previous Mother Superiors went on to occupy even higher positions within the centralized Aegis structure. Government policy dictates that only women may occupy this role.

Head Geneticist, Resurgo Labs (female, 35-45 years old)

Details:

The Head Geneticist is the effective second-in-command of the childbirth unit at Resurgo Labs. They are very often seen as logical successors to the current Mother Superior and generally have nearly as much clout both within their team and with the governing structure.

Entry Point: Child of the State - Resurgo Labs [Boston]

This character is second to the Mother Superior and part of the childbirth team at Resurgo Labs in Boston. Please see the aforementioned intro thread for more details.

Knowledge:

While they are not as publicly known as the Mother Superior, they are often known at least by name. Similar to all within this unit, the Head Geneticist must have a high level of knowledge on human biology and genetics, including genetic experimentation.

Lab Technician, Resurgo Labs (any gender, 20-30 years old)

Details:

This character is a newer member of the childbirth team at Resurgo Labs. Despite their relatively low standing in comparison to others in the story, the occupation is one of very high standing in society.

Entry Point: Child of the State - Resurgo Labs [Boston]

Part of the childbirth team at Resurgo Labs in Boston. Please see the aforementioned intro thread for more details.

Knowledge:

As with everyone in the childbirth team, the Lab Technician is someone who knows a great deal about human biology and genetics. They would also be well versed in laboratory equipment use. Though the Mother Superior and Head Geneticists are professionally higher up the chain of command, the Lab Technician is far more capable than either of them at applying their knowledge and expertise to actual medical situations of all kinds.
