Domingo in uniform, c. 1945

Player: latzi_

Position: Guerrilla Specialist

Demeanor: He's a joker, but most people can't understand his jokes because they aren't Pinoy.

Nature: A softie for animals and kids, Domingo will generally put his life on the line for them. Despite this, the mission will almost always come first.

Description: He stands at 5'6, usually found wearing his uniform in tidy order. He's short and somewhat stout, but almost everything about him screams 'Pinoy'.

Specialty Skills:

You have twelve points to distribute among as many or as few specialty skills as you see fit (but at least three is almost always warranted). Remember to explain what each specialty entails.

  • Surprise, there's a knife in your chest!: 3. Domingo's time fighting the Japanese as well as the Moros Rebels has honed his skill as an elite man-hunter. (+3 to combat rolls when ambushing an enemy.)
  • Where could they be?: 3. Careful eyes can spot a trap anywhere, and Domingo has got some of the keenest senses anywhere. (+3 to perception rolls when it comes to snares or traps.)
  • I'll see what I can do: 2. In a guerrilla unit, supplies are scarce. Domingo has a knack for fixing up a lot of things, despite not knowing a thing about how they work. (+2 to engineering rolls when trying to repair something minor.)
  • Tracks mean Attacks: 4. Fighting in the jungle has given Domingo a good deal of knowledge, like knowing as to which leaves absorb moisture the best, or how fresh these boot tracks are. (+4 to survival rolls when tracking or identifying/analyzing plants for use. Might even extend to medical rolls, if the GM presiding allows it.)

Personal History:

Domingo Fernandez was born to a poor farmer and his wife in the Pampanga province in 1927. Until age fourteen, Domingo tended the farm until the afternoon, then went to the local dumps, looking for cans and other small scrap to sell. When he turned fifteen, Domingo went to the capital, joined the Philippine Military Academy, got high marks on all his scores and would have graduated third in his class, had the Japanese not invaded.

After the joint Philippine-American forces surrendered, the cadets were forced back home. Domingo and many others didn't really enjoy being told what to do by the invaders. Especially since they were doing a whole manner of disgraceful things to their homeland. So many former cadets, Domingo included, went off and formed the Hunters ROTC.

He took part in many battles, specializing in ambushing unlucky patrols. After the war, he, along with his family, moved to the United States. He was looking for a well-paying job when he stumbled upon one of the Foundation's recruitment drives. Domingo signed up immediately, where he was initially put in the task force Rho-12 which dissolved two years after he joined. Now, he's been transferred over to Psi-7.

Miscellaneous:

Can speak a small amount of Japanese and is fluent in Tagalog and most other native Philippines languages.
Doesn't hold anything against the Japanese soldiers.
Served alongside the Los Banos Filipino-American soldiers.
Well-versed in Filipino cooking.
