Alain Watt

Basic Info:

Player: Gabriel Jade

Position: Chaplain

Demeanor: He tends to come off as a quiet man with his nose buried in a book, or sitting in quiet contemplation. When with friends he tends to be more talkative- seemingly always with the goal make his friends happy or share a good laugh.

Nature: Alain is introspective and mindful of his actions. He abhors violence, and will go to great lengths if it means he can resolve an altercation peacefully. He is well aware of the nature of his employment, and although watching his teammates open fire on an enemy makes him ill, he won't stop them from doing what they believe needs to be done.

Description: Alain is pushing thirty, with an unruly beard and hair to match. He stands 5'8'', although he often appears at a height of 6'0'', due to his preference of wearing geta. His personal wardrobe consists of simple cotton garments, and unless ordered otherwise, prefers to wear a yukata with subdued colors.

Specialties
  • Yogic Training 4. Alain has spent a decade traveling from temple to temple, studying mental and physical techniques with masters all across Asia and the Middle East. He is capable of supressing his body's physical reaction to trauma, given sufficient time to ready himself. As long as he is aware of a specific source of physical damage and has about six seconds of complete stillness to steady his breathing, he receives +4 PDEF against that particular source of damage.
  • Unconditional Compassion 5. During his decade of travel, he experienced a thought process which he perceives as enlightenment. The only discernible effect of this experience is that Alain inherently regards all sentient life with compassion. He receives +5 to PERSUASION when attempting to convince an NPC to not act violently, as long as combat has not already started.
  • Vedic Studies 3. Long term study of Vedic texts translate into a robust knowledge of the subject matter. Alain receives +3 to ACADEMICS as long as the object of his study is related to the Vedas, including related religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism.

Personal History:

Alain had a wholly unremarkable childhood, and following in his fathers' footsteps, joined the American military at seventeen. He spent a mere year and a half serving in active duty, his military career cut short with a crippling wound to his leg. Although he would recover a significant degree of mobility over the coming years, he never lost a noticeable limp.

Following his medical discharge, he traveled to Egypt, beginning what would be a ten year journey across the Middle East and Asia, traveling by foot from teacher to teacher, his revulsion with his own actions during combat plaguing him.

A decade later, he booked passage from Beijing back to the United States. In short order he was contacted by a man he recognized from all those years ago as his platoon sergeant, now in the employ of the Foundation. Alain joined the Foundation later that year, in 1959.
