Basic Info:

Player: Zorad

Position: Biologist/Field Medic, is actively involved the biology department and collects samples of unstudied organic matter to run tests upon, and is often seen on the back lines of combat with the wounded.

Demeanor: Ivan is an outgoing and charismatic man, who does all he can to further the field and his love of science. He is a respectable man, preferring to tell the truth and say what is on his mind, which has sometimes gotten him into trouble with disagreements.

Nature: Beneath the warm exterior is a man who is driven to do what can to protect the environment and those that he cares about. Almost all of his research and work is driven by a passion and a tremendous love and caring of all flora and fauna. Even though he is intelligent, he is still somewhat a klutz and has been known to forget some things.

Description: At 5'11", Dr. Gonzalez is a man of Mexican origin in his late 40's, with a thick accent. He is decently in shape and has an acute sense of hearing and smell, due to his eyesight not being so good. English is not his best language, and he is often transitioning between English and Spanish, making for very odd speech patterns but his speech has much improved and has since became more normal.

Specialties
  • Biology: 6. Because he received his PhD in Biology and Environmental sciences, Dr. Gonzalez is extremely prepared in just about any outdoor situation, and he is able to identify uses of most nearby flora and fauna for medicinal and practical purposes. (When in a jungle, forest, desert, or mountain, Ivan can prepare small medicines and remedies for most injuries giving him a +4 to medical and a +2 to science for identifying poisons, toxins, venom and natural medicines)
  • That looks pretty bad, lets get you patched up: 3. Due to Ivan having extensive experience with medicine in the field, he gains +1 agility and +2 strength when moving a wounded character out of combat to a safe area where he can hopefully help keep the patient alive and well.
  • Survival expert: 3. Ivan is able to last out many extreme and harsh conditions alone, making do of whatever is around him. He is not afraid to be alone, and can last several months in the most extreme conditions. (Whenever he is alone in a non-urban setting, Ivan gains +3 survival)

Personal History:

Born on August 15, 1912 in Veracruz, Mexico, Dr. Gonzalez was the son of two artists who painted still life of nature, which fostered his love from an early age. Ivan grew up on a small olive vineyard owned by his family for generations with 3 brothers and 2 sisters. Ivan was a middle child and spent most of his time alone or studying nature, never formally attending school. Ivan grew up working hard and always putting honesty first as his parents always taught him to do, usually getting into small fights in town because of his honesty. Eventually he grew up tall and strong but wanted to move on to bigger and better things, so he began to save money by working 2 jobs. At the age of 20 he had saved up enough money to attend Rice university, and would eventually earn his doctorates, and his minors (in cartography and geography). After he graduated, he returned to Mexico and his hometown to take up a job opportunity from MC&D.

At MC&D, Ivan was well respected and did work cataloging and identifying many anomalous creatures, and he developed a knack for identification and recording of anomalous creatures and items. Ivan was decently happy working for MC&D as an overseer for many transports of live anomalies, but his happiness would not last. Slowly Ivan realized what kind of work he had become immersed in and he slowly began to doubt the morality and legality of the situation. The straw that broke the camel's back was when he was selling a possessed marionette to an undisclosed buyer, and he was forced to watch as it escaped and his entire security team was ruthlessly slaughtered in front of him. His resignation was swift and brief, requesting to disappear for a while until news died down, and he returned home to Veracruz temporarily retired. Despite his work in the black market, there has ultimately been 0 evidence to link him to anything criminal and despite consistent prompts, he has revealed nothing from his work with the criminal underground.

He was later brought out of retirement by an anomaly escaping into the deserts of Mexico and posing a threat to nearby cities. Ivan was able to help the foundation in the containment and eventually the destruction of it where he was approached by one of the lead biologists at site 77, who offered him a job for the foundation in 1952, and since then, he has happily worked there on many projects.
