Thanks to hpoggie for beta-ing these. Part 1 is the bios for my agents:

Name: Colonel Caleb Bradbury

Species: Human

Age: 56

Sex: Male

Home Continuum: World 1.567 repeating, a minor alternate universe

Personality: Bradbury is what is known as a “character”. He has a strange ability to procure just about anything just about anywhere, and a related ability to establish himself as an authority figure even in situations totally unfamiliar to him.

Appearance: The colonel is a gaunt man, just shy of two meters tall. His head is very round, a feature accentuated by his rather severe buzz-cut. He has a short beard, skin on the brown side, and a generally weathered look. He is a good bit more athletic than one would expect of a man his age, thanks to the medical and cybernetic science of the 2050s.

History: In his many years he has been not just an officer in the Argentine army, but also a grave digger, stamp forger, purveyor of shoddy knockoff products, piano tuner, ticket scalper, blackjack dealer, and many other things.

Name: Rasputin Gibbs

Species: Draconian

Age: 24

Sex: Male

Home Continuum: World 1.963, the world that exists in certain conspiracy theories.

Personality: On some deep level, Gibbs wants to be in a Sergio Leone movie. He doesn’t speak much, he wears a stetson, and he seems terminally calm. His interest in cookery according to the Galenic theory is just a bonus. He uses Draconian expressions in his speech, such as the greeting “Bast Chauble” and the philosophical concept of going “even more unto Yark.”

Appearance: Gibbs is a seven foot tall reptilian humanoid with a hunched posture, dark green scales, and a nice set of fangs. He is rarely seen without his stetson, and his eyes hold a look of steely determination that took him years to perfect.

History: Gibbs spent many years working as a security guard in Dulce base, a joint human-draconian military base located under Archuelta Mesa. He held himself to a very high standard, and soon became known as one of the most capable officers on the security team. With this good mixture of skill and expendability, Gibbs was an ideal candidate to send on a test jaunt through the base’s new portal. He came unstuck in space and time, and learned of Sues, or as he called them reality-warping entities. When we meet him, he has several unlicensed Sue killings under his belt, and has consequently attracted the attention of the PPC.

      Alright. Settle in--being me, I write a lot to begin with, and I've also responded to HG's comments, so...that might have lengthened it. As usual, I've used formatting to try to make it easy to... more

      (I’m new in this job and don’t know what to do.) Like Zingenmir, I see a lot of potential and mostly like what I read. But I have an issue with Colonel Bradbury’s origin. World One is just like Real... more
      • These are some problems.61516, Tue Jun 12 8:14pm
        1) I do have a typo in Gibb's backstory. This is slightly embarrassing, but LibreOffice doesn't think either is a word, so I failed on that, and my beta only knows it as Dulce Base. 2) I chose World... more
        • Wait, what? Hieronymus Graubart, Thu Jun 14 8:00am
          "Hydramatic drive" and "Space-Time-and-The-Other" aren’t words you just made up? This totally changes the way I read Bradbury’s recruitment. If I need more background information, I shouldn’t expect... more
    • This was pretty fun to read. You had me laughing a bit, multiple times, and I noticed very few errors--the only thing I really noticed was a time or two where there should possibly have been a new... more
