Biographical Synopsis: Ever since I was young, I have been interested in airplanes. My allowance was spent on any model i could get my hands on. My prized possession is my B-2 Bomber that I got on my 12th birthday. When it came to what I wanted to do when college came around, it was a simple choice for me. I wanted to fly a fighter in the Air Force to help protect the innocent. The process was not easy, but I pushed on through it. In the end, with my prior knowledge of aircraft, I came out at the top of my class. I quickly climbed the ranks until I was one of the elites at the airbase. About 5 months after I had become one of the top pilots, I received notice that I was being moved to a new bird. Normally I would be sad that I had to give up my bird for a new one, but when they mentioned that model, it was one that I had never heard of and this made me very interested. I was told that I was going to be transferred to a new base in Asia, where I will be assigned to my new aircraft by the commander there. I have no idea what to expect, but I am excited to fly this new bird.



I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as an elite military soldier, in the X-COM special forces. I am giving myself, unconditionally, to the cause. I do bind myself to conform, in all instances, to such rules and regulations, as set forth by my supreme commander ChristopherOdd. I trust him with my life. And by taking this oath, I realize, I may ultimately lose something while defending the planetary systems. My life.

First Name: Jasmin
Last Name: Lebed

Gender:
Female

Biographical Synopsis:
If there is one thing I've known since I was a child, that is guns. I was probably around seven years old when my father took me on my first hunting trip. I learned how to dismantle and rebuild a pistol when I was sixteen years old. The army I joined around eighteen, it just felt natural to me, it was my calling. Family? I got none, Father: Killed in action(An honorable veteran) Mother: Never found or heard of since my birth. I have been part of the army for five years now (for those who don't like the math, that makes me twentythree years old). Why did X-COM choose me? No one knows, and I certainly do not care why. The main thing is they chose me, they want me as part of them. Its no small thing, I will do everything in my power to be of use in ridding those aliens.

Pledge:
I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as an elite military soldier, in the X-COM special forces. I am giving myself, unconditionally, to the cause. I do bind myself to conform, in all instances, to such rules and regulations, as set forth by my supreme commander ChristopherOdd. I trust him with my life.

Biographical Synopsis:
So im a simple 23 year old guy with no military background that only heard of aliens in games and stuff. i know my way around some guns because i bought a pistol an a day i still remeber like it was yesterday. I realy loved that pistol so much that i went to the shooting range for practice.Turns out that my shot was not that bad. So i started collecting guns (just for safety ) . After i moved close to the woods family went missing, a day or so after the 'abduction' we found'em dead in the forest. After a couple of weeks i found my little brother dead! i went home and started to watch the news. They said:' Aliens are on our planet and we're all ganne die.' So i stayed home for months afraid that I would be killed if i left my house. but i didnt when i went to the store to get some more food. Apperently some xcom people saw me while i was killing some ugly aliens( the 1's with the bug -eyes) so they took me with them and i just left, didn't even think about the people at the house. now i'm on my way to x-com and maybe they'll let me join otherwise they'll probably shoot me down.

First Name: Calvin
Last Name: Colt
Gender: Male
Age: 26

Biographical Synopsis:Hey...is this thing on? I don't see a blinking light or-oh, wait. There it is.
Right. Well...
(Colt scratches the back of his neck, under his uniform's collar.)
Well, I'm Colt, Calvin. Formerly United States Army, 75th Rangers, EOD specialist. I...don't really know what I am now, since I got pulled fro-
(His eyes jump up, looking at someone behind the camera)
Oh, history? Well, okay...where do I start...well, lets just say that me being a soldier was kinda a chosen path for me. I'm from one of those families where, because at some point in our past one of the men had to join up, every capable male since then has done the same thing. In the case of the Colt family, it was my great-grandfather, who signed up out of a patriotism and a wee bit of desperation back in 1917 when America officially entered World War I. He came home unscathed, thank God, and he brought with him stories of honor on the field. My granddad did the same during the Great Depression and ended up getting sent into the Pacific in '42 and managed to come back in one piece, once again with more stories. My dad was gonna join, but then along came Korea and Vietnam and the Cold War and he realized that it would probably be a better idea to just stay home, find a nice girl and raise a kid. That's me, by the way.
(Colt shifts, looking down at his boots.)
So, yeah...me. I'm not what you'd call a "rush joiner", smashing through the door of the recruitment center the moment I turned 18...actually, I waited till I was 22 to sign up. I wasn't even PLANNING to join...but then I started reading back over granddad and great-granddad's stories and I looked at myself and said "I don't have anywhere else to go". So, I joined the Army, and what do you know, it turned out I was smarter than a standard jarhead. So they gave me a job doing EOD, that's Explosive Ordinance Dis-
(Colt pauses, looking up again)
Right, your not civvies...sorry. Anyway, I was given a job doing EOD and similar stuff...up until two weeks ago. That's when you guys came and got me.
So...I'm here now, I guess. Calvin Colt reporting for duty.

First Name: Nigel

Last Name: Blackwood


Gender:Male


Biographical Synopsis:
Growing up in New York city and being a only child there is only one thing you can do if you at least want to have an easy life. Steal and try not to die or get caught by the cops.

So when I was 17 it was Just another day of stealing but it would end differently since just after me and my homies robbed this old man of all his personal belongs at gun point and took of running down the street as fast as our legs could take us which wasn't hard he yelled something which made me stop for a second and think about what I've been doing with my life

"You punks are worse then the aliens!"

I don't know why it effected me but it did maybe it's because it remind me of my deceased father who said he would be looking down at me when he died and how he would be ashamed of all the crimes his son has done and the fact that my mother is working herself to death just so I can have a normal life and here I am making people's lives worse.

Maybe it was those things or not but whatever it was it made me turn myself in the following night and go through with my sentence before I decided to turn my life around which made all my so called friends laugh and call me an idiot . I was angry when they laughed so I ended our friendship by beating them into the ground.

After I got out of the hospital because of the injuries I got in the fight I began to turn my life around by getting into better shape than I was in since was always the slowest when me and my old friends ran from the cops or other gangs. I then learned how to fire something other than a little pistol since It was know a common fact that the aliens were tough bastards to kill.

So now at 25 I'm currently in the last months of my training for the world wide military group calling themselves X-Com special forces.

I don't know if I'll be a war hero like my grandfather, get discharged because of some serious injuries like my old man or worse but I hope that I meet some new people whose hobbies aren't stealing and killing and maybe even start a relationship if I ever met the right girl before i kick the bucket.

Though despite all that I am a little worried at the fact so many people has lost their lives under the command of Christopher odd but I quickly go rid of that doubt since he saved a lot of lives than the ones who died under his orders .

So I hope to do him justice by lining up my shots with my lucky sniper rifle and try to take down as many of those alien bastards I can while saving as many innocent people as humanly possible.

First Name: Eric
Last Name: Braulting

Gender: Male
Biographical Synopsis:

Early information on him and his country of birth remain unknown to XCOM and its benefactors, however given his long career as a employee under contract by the British private security company Eramus he does not lack training.


According to Eramus databases Eric Braulting was first hired in the 2002 at their offices in London; their knowledge, like ours, seems to lack any prior information on Braulting.
After a year of training with Eramus at one of its bases in the South Atlantic, he was shipped to Iraq alongside much of the companies forces to serve as the protectors of highly important oil pipelines for the United States Army which was active within the region. Within Iraq, Braulting faced Iraqi soldiers, and later insurgents before being pulled out of Iraq in 2005.
During his service in the Middle East Braulting was recorded on Eramus databases as being involved in six major conflicts in the defense of three pipelines. Two of which resulted in the majority of Braulting's fellow squad mates being killed.

Once pulled out of Iraq, Braulting was assigned to standard Eramus issue service within Nigeria with orders to guard and maintain control of the iron mines along the border with Chad, which were largely owned by Eramus shareholders.
Threats to the mine were primarily rebels from the neighboring country, Chad, who were retreating from the Chadian civil war.
Nigeria proved to be a pointless affair and in 2007, after no conflicts with the Chadian rebels, Braulting along with several other veterans from Iraq were once again pulled out. The iron mines were quickly captured and looted after his withdrawal costing Eramus nearly 20 million US dollars in repairs to the mines infrastructure

According to Eramus records Braulting showed incredible incredible feats of leadership in his first tour in Iraq, taking control when his superiors were either unable or unwilling to do so.
Furthermore by the time Braulting had arrived in Nigeria he was a decorated Eramus officer; alongside this he would appear to have signed a renewed contract with the company that guaranteed his service for a total of 6 years under a weekly pay of 1500$ US. No valid bank account is listed anywhere in Eramus's records however and it must be assumed these payments were made in cash and deposited in a private bank account under a different name than Eric Braulting.


In 2009 Braulting was once again sent into Iraq to serve as the commander of one of the guard stations for an important sector of the oil pipeline, this continued until 2010 when he was once again pulled out.

Eric Braulting was than shipped to the the Democratic Republic of the Congo; where Eramus had received a series contracts for the protection of a major gas pipeline . The data during this period in Braulting's employment appears to be removed, with no further access to Eramus's databases [due to it's dismantling in 2014 over possible human rights abuses.] this period remains impossible to obtain from anyone other than Braulting himself.
Given the lack of information it can only be assumed Braulting served with the company until it's dismantling in 2014; when news of torture and rumors of Eramus attempting to stage a coup within the DRC to place itself as the states military government, led to its dismantling under threats of military intervention by the UK , US, French and Russian governments.

As of February of 2015 Braulting is reported to be employed to a small time security company known as REMUS. When questioned on Braulting's location REMUS responded by the following email
"REMUS's support team are unauthorized to provide current employees location for the companies protection alongside their own. We apologize for any inconveniences this causes."
Despite their refusal to provide Braulting's location it is safe to assume he is currently serving within Iraq under REMUS's current contract for the defense of the oil pipelines. Given his experience in the country, sending him to one of the companies other contracts in Columbia or Malaysia seem unlikely.
According to private records in the Iraqi governments defense branch only three locations in the country currently house REMUS employees. Sending an XCOM representative to each should be relatively simply, and given the amount of money being offered to him, Braulting would be a fool to refuse the chance of employment within XCOM.

Pledge: I have, on this day, voluntarily enlisted myself, as an elite military soldier, in the X-COM special forces. I am giving myself, unconditionally, to the cause. I do bind myself to conform, in all instances, to such rules and regulations, as set forth by my supreme commander ChristopherOdd. I trust him with my life. And by taking this oath, I realize, I may ultimately lose something while defending the planetary systems. My life.


[Extra OOC information: first off i apologize if I have done something wrong in the process of applying, second I intend to expand my biographical information once I learn which country my soldier will be from. Thanks]

Biographical Synopsis: I was born in New York, grew up like everyone else, then decided to join the army. Didn't do much there, just learned the basics like shooting, tactics and terrain, when I heard about New York going silent, I borrowed a car from one of the men and drove home. When I finally came home, it was covered in green... slime, I guess and parts of the street were torn. I got out of the car, clutching my pistol, when I saw a small, gray creature, the size of a kid with a glowing piece of metal on it's left arm. It aimed at, but I managed to get out of the way, I shoot back and got lucky, it hit it between the eyes. The thing it had blew up when it died, so I thought about leaving, when I heard footstep. I ducked and saw that they were human and wore a uniform I never saw, I stood up with my hand exposed. "Who are you?" I asked, one of them talked into their earpiece, then looked at me. "Come on, Bradford said to let you join, seeing as you killed a sectoid."
