War has evolved.
What was once fought by armies and humans has now become centred around the usage of gigantic armed combat vehicles, piloted by individuals known as Gearheads. They have become a necessity as the large regions of the earth are no longer capable of supporting human life and a venomous mist is common in these regions, dangerously fatal to humanity. Three factions hold the majority of the power; the Europan Imperiate which encompasses Europe and half of Asia, the Pacific Alliance which is a collection of the remainder of the nations of Asia and Oceania and the United Americas which encompasses North and South America.
The Gearheads are trained in various military academies which function as schools as well as relief forces as students inevitably are required to reinforce units and as a reserve squad. The most elite academy in the world is the Imperial Academy, located in what was once central France and has produced some of the greatest pilots in the world known not only for their talent but also for their sheer arrogance. But this is not about them; instead this is about the Brittania Academy, an academy that is rapidly reaching the stage where it is unnecessary and cannot match the quality of the Imperial Academy.
But there is a current outpouring of students that may be good enough to drag their academy out of the hole that it has fallen into and perhaps they will help bring back a peace to the Europan Imperiate which has fought too many battles against the other factions and is beginning to crack at the seams.
Age: (anything from mid-teens to late 20's.)
Name: James Addison
Appearance: Click here
Background: The son of a former general in the Europan Imperiate and from a privileged upbringing, James outright resented the fact that life was easy for him and turned against those who were in the upper class that didn't have to work for anything. Becoming an irritating presence to his father, he was shipped off to Imperial Academy where he would hopefully learn some discipline. Not wanting to be around the elite any longer, James instead worked to get himself expelled quickly and was sent packing after a week. Not wanting to back down, General Addison instead sent James to the Britannia Academy where he could at least be at home with the other delinquents that sat on the bottom rung of the academies,
Personality: A delinquent through and through, James has settled into a life where he is away from the upper class and doing what he enjoys most. This is of course fighting and piloting his mech which means that he is happy as long as there is a scrap to get involved with. Contrary to what you would believe, he is actually a modest person that just has a very short temper and a need to prove himself as a man. He is still somewhat on the lazy side, sometimes lacking the motivation to better himself as a soldier.
Skills: James has an almost prodigious ability to get himself into trouble but has shown a natural talent of holding his own in a fight. Due to his sometime laziness, he relies a lot on any natural piloting talents as opposed to applying himself and becoming a great pilot. There is talk amongst the teachers that he could be great if he showed the motivation to improve.
Mech Name: Buru-Buru mk 1.5- Ramuh
Appearance: Click here
Equipment: Being based on the older Buru Buru mecha, Ramuh is designed for close ranged combat and has thick armour designed to safeguard it until it reaches melee range. The two thrusters upon its shoulders assists in manoeuvrability and its gauntlets carry an electrical charge, thereby explaining the name Ramuh.
OOC: Why didn't I notice that I accidentally pasted it a second time?
