Player: GraemeCracker

Position: Field Medic/Veterinarian

Demeanor: Cocksure, satirical, resoundingly impartial

Nature: Very explicit and single minded in his work. Secretly fears the worst in all things.

Description: Eric is a hardy, able-bodied man standing at 5'10 and 165 lbs. Below his head of short, dark brown hair and hazeled eyes is a stern, creased face riddled with pockmarks and rather pronounced jowls. Regarding clothes, Eric can generally be found donning the Foundation supplied uniform given to most medical staff on Site 77. However, during times of leisure he is often seen lounging about in a pair of slacks and a rather unsightly woolen sweater.

Specialties
  • No Participants at Geneva Con: 4. Among other things, the Geneva Convention is intended to protect medics from harm during times of war. With that said, Eric has learned during his military service that not everybody enjoys that code, especially in a line of work that no longer follows that mindset. In order to keep his patients safe, Eric will do whatever he can to ensure that both he and his wounded are out of harm's way before operation. If he's not quick about it, however, it may just leave them both exposed. (+4 PDef when attempting to heal a teammate. If roll fails against attacking opponent, take double damage.)
  • Looks Like a Duck, Barks Like a Dog: 4. Regardless of the number of legs, wings, eyes or teeth a creature may have, Eric's probably dealt with it somewhere. At worst, it resembles something he's studied . If you squint. Maybe. (+4 ACAD regarding animals and fauna)
  • Bite the Stick So They Don't Have To: 4. The one thing better than fixing up your teammates is ensuring that they don't need fixing up at all. As such, Eric is more than willing to hunker down and keep an eye over the team while they go handle whatever needs handling. (+3 ranged and +1 pdef while providing covering fire, at the risk of -2 agility while hunkered down)

Personal History:

Eric Arthur Mackenzie, born in 1918 on a homestead in rural Saskatchewan. As the eldest child of four siblings, Eric spent the large majority of his time being taught the ways of the land by his father; tending to the fields and caring for the livestock when not at the local county schoolhouse to learn the basics of education. Upon reaching the age of 18, Eric traveled to the University of Saskatchewan in order to acquire a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, which was followed for a short two years until 1939 at which point war was declared against the Axis powers in Europe.

Eric volunteered for service and was assigned the position of field medic alongside the Saskatoon Light Infantry, 1st Batallion, which were shipped out to Great Britain on December 8th, 1939. For the long five years following Eric would tend to his comrades as their forces fought through Norway, Italy, France, and finally the North-West Europe theatre in 1945.

Upon the end of the war, Eric returned to the University of Saskatchewan to complete his doctorate. He then moved back to the Mackenzie homestead to assist his family until 1949, where he then decided to transfer to Sicily in response to an advisory position offer for a joint regional wildlife project between the Canadian and Italian governments. This lasted until 1955, whereupon the project was acquired and liquidated by the Foundation as a result of an outbreak of a particularly anomalous species of Bluethroat.

While the project was annihilated and its team disbanded, Eric found employment under the Foundation as a local physician for personnel during the building and renovating of Site 77, where he now remains as a field medic and local veterinarian for any lifeforms which end up behind the facility's doors.
