Verrik Actomus

Player:

Lurker

Name:

Verrik Actomus

Species:

Martian

Concept:

Weapons Development Team rolled into one

Aspects:

  • The bane of my existence: There is a love/hate relationship between Verrik and robots. On one hand, he needs them for his work - on the other, he rarely trusts them. Artificial Intelligences are alright, but if it's a droid, he's incredibly wary. As such, he's trained himself to be able to disable robots in various ways, incase of a robot uprising.
  • If it's broke: Verrik is obsessed with creating things, or fixing things. He will slave away for days with little to no sleep until a project is done, giving little attention to anything else, or until he finally admits defeat. To this day, he is proud to say that he has never admitted defeat regarding a project.
  • Showman: Often Verrik will treat everything around him like he's the centre of the universe. A lot of his public actions are to fluff up the media and have their attention on him. This can lead to more support in certain times, or it can lead to people disliking him and wanting to punch his stupid face in.

Personal History

Son of Ilius Actomus - the famous Martian weapons-baron of Actomus Industries - Verrik displayed incredible intelligence for a Martian matching his father's bright mind. By age 15 he was on the AI payroll, and had been involved in a project that lead to the development that brough Actomus Industries to the spotlight: The AI013 Marauder Hybridized Transport. At age 24, his mother passed away from a tragic illness, and he seemed to drift away from Actomus Industries, before developing the Actomus Industries Field-Doctor - a rifle that was designed to be used to assist injured soldiers that could not be reached by normal field medics. Since several other developments, he seems to have dropped off the radar, working in private and occasionally sending schematics and prototypes back to his father to be put on the market.

He sought the Razorwing and AEGIS as a chance to be able to field test his new creations, as well as have greater access to supplies.

Miscellaneous

Approx 32 years of age. Tanned skin, silver hair that is usually slicked back. ~5'11 and 150 lbs. Fairly average build. Will talk for hours if not told to stop. Will often explain something without regarding someone's lack of knowledge on the subject. Will often come off as insulting (and he assures people that it is meant that way).
