Rafael García General Information Full name:José Rafael García Torres Nationality:Mexican Height:5.74 ft (1.75 m) Weight:158.8 lb (72.5 kg) Blood type:O+ Languages:Spanish and english Personal Information Gender:Male Age:21 Date of birth:born 7/14/1997 Former occupation:Student Actual occupation:Scout Group Affiliation:The Compound // Pathfinder Unit Civil Status:Single Status:Alive Appearance and other information: A young hispanic man in his early twenties, he is a little taller than the average mexican, standing at 5.74 ft. Has brown eyes. His body is a little slim compare to others. He keeps his black hair short, and tries to be clean shaven. He can be seen wearing a military uniform, along with a kevlar armor covering his torso and arms completely, and carrying a worn down backpack, the only real distinction from the other uniforms is his lastname written on the side of his left sleeve: "García". His accent when speaking english has evolved over time, could be confused as an American, with little mistakes in general. He still keeps his mexican accent when speaking spanish. Spoiler: Wounds, scars and other His upper left arm has an old scar from a scratch.(Healed, hard to spot) Both forearms have scars from deep cuts along his veins. Both start from the wrist to half his forearm, his right arm has a longer scar(left: 4 cm long, right 5.7 cm long). A healed cut in his right palm. A small scar is all that's left Scars from a scratch in his chest. Bandages in his right shoulder. Got shot. Personality: A patient man by nature, willing to help those he trust. A little distant, but quite friendly once he feels comfortable with new people. He sees things from a rather cold and rational way, trying to not get carried away by his or others emotions. Altough he usually cares about others emotions and general well-beign, he tends to give it less weight compare to experience(both his and others experience). Spoiler: Recent development He starts to show signs of alcoholism, yet he seems to be able to run without booze for now. So far, he can spent days without alcohol. No signs of dependence. The man can be seen speaking about dead as if it was nothing. Joking about getting kill, giving the impression that he might have suicidal tendencies... Even when this is actually his way to cope with the stress. Nora's recent suicide has taken a toll on him. While still able to be cool headed in most situations, he might come across as cold. So far has recovered, still a long way off. It's time to move on After the last mission in King's Mill, he's overall more optimistic... Still, some gallows humor won't hurt anyone. Recent events: Spoiler: Compund // Time in the Dam After a long journey from Chicago to Hartsdale, and from there to Fairhaven, he joined the group of the coumpound(and almost got kill in the process, twice), where he found the closest thing to a home, or at least a safe place. After a while he joined in the plan to escape by helicopter. After getting shot down by the army, and fortunately(for him) getting out of the crash with a few cuts, bruises and a headache, he ended up in quarantine... Or as he put it "a cage". Which he planned to escape, biding his time for the right moment. The idea for him was less about freedom, and more about getting answers. Few days later, after a breach in security. Adamson came with them, and give him an offer too good to turn down: in exchange for risking his life once more, and with luck, cheat death in the process, he will get out for a time, to King's Mill, also known as the Dead Zone... And of course he accepted this death sentence: Pathfinder. Spoiler: Pathfinder Team, part 1 Once they arrived, problems in the area started to be clear: Mongols are stronger than before, robbers were around, some infected mutated in horrible and inhuman forms. And a "friend" from King and Frankie showed up: Jake Rouge. Having seen the man before, and knowing a little bit that the man could be dangerous. He was catious, aiming at the man once he saw Jake near the base, but let him go in peace. Next morning, the guy showed up, aiming him, Frankie and Hammer with a Benelli. After Jake lost his posture; giving him time to take out his pistol, and after he mentioned Ember's name while explaining from where he knew him to Hammer(Jon Walsh), he surrendered, droping his gun. Saving him from the posibility of getting shot, and having to shoot the man. After an interrogation with he man, and the attack from a horde, he was sent to the Dam. Not without making Rafael feel suspicious of the man's intentions, and past deeds. After these incidents. More faces showed up: a woman called Juvia Carter, a journalist who came from a bunker, and with no idea of what's going on until now. Also, a woman with a familiar name: Rivka Pekarsky, previously part of the compund, his only conection with her was the few posters in the old bunker. She's now part of Pathfinder as the new medic. After a talk with Nora, that went pretty badly, they pretty much stay out of each other business. At first, while he tried to push Nora to give him answers and talk everything, he at the end found it to be a losing battle, so he decided to give up and just let her be. After the Mongols came with a peace offer that offered him a moment of relief, the woman accused him to be a unstable man at the edge of suicide if front of Hammer. While he has faith that Hammer won't believe such lie, specially when he has shown to be honest and open about what's going on. He wonders the reason of why Nora did such thing. Spoiler: Pathfinder Team, part 2 After weeks of doing nothing worth mentioning. Things started to move in the base. As he for the first time had to kill a man. And with Nora's suicide, things had changed for the man. Thankfully for him, Jonathan Walsh, aka Hammer supported him during this times. While he feels that some people around don't really care about her dead (not that he holds any grudge for that, as he understands the reason why). He's still thankful about the support he has received from his teammates and friends. With no answer from the Dam in the last weeks, he feels that soon the question of King's Mill will be answered: either they have been abandoned by the Dam, or soon they'll be deployed. At the end, an answer came... A team o the best possible fighters: Hammerhead, Timofei, Rondney, David, Locke and him where sent to King's Mill. They were sent to hell... Under a deep, green fog and rain, they moved forward. Looking for their prey: Baez, or rather, whatever Baez mutated into. After a search, they got to fight the beast. A thing that was able to kill any of them with ease. Thankfully for him it didn't. After a couple of short fights, they ended in a nest. First time Raf had the opportunity to see one, definitely Tim wasn't telling fairy tales. Here, they fought Baez one last time, David getting hurt in the process, and some of them almost dying a couple of times. But they didn't. And we're able to incapacitate Baez. After a moment of respite. Another mutant showed up, this one, was worse than Baez. As the thing drew nigh. They shooted at it. Not even slowing it down.they retreared shortly after, as he carried David, to hand the man to someone else, as he tried to fill the thing with lead. After almost dying in extraction, they flew away. Living to tell the tale. To Hell, and back. Spoiler: Changelog Spoiler: 1.0 - 1.4.1 1.0 : post made. 1.1 : Added relations. 1.2 : Same 1.3 : Opinions added.
