Lazaro "Cas" Castellanos

Player: Kaeru

Position: Front-Line Combatant

Demeanor: Reserved and professional, rather unapproachable. Seems to tend towards kindness when the situation arises, but is otherwise a bit cold, distant.

Nature: Genuinely caring, with a strong protective instinct. Doesn’t like talk about his past, but it’s obvious it motivates him to try to do good. He is frustrated with the foundation for its secrecy but will not let that get in the way of his work.

Description: Tall, well-built latino man with an undercut. Wouldn't be caught dead out of uniform. A strong jaw, high cheekbones, and light brown skin. Broad-shouldered and muscular. The right side of his lower face, neck, and torso are covered in semi-faded burn wounds, and his right arm is a prosthetic from the elbow down. His right eye is slightly faded, taking on a slightly lighter color than the other.

Specialties

You have eight 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.

  • Brawler: 4. Trained as an infiltrator, Cas specializes in close combat of all sorts. +2 to disarming and -2 to the knockout threshold of enemies during close combat.
  • Hotwire a Submarine: 1. Cas might not be the most mechanically-minded, but you don't do well in the Navy without knowing your way around your ship. +1 Engineering regarding submarines, ships, and boats.
  • El Que Madruga Coge Agua Clara: 3. Cas finds himself often on the front lines, working to protect his allies behind him. Can can partially interpose himself between an opponent's attack and a nearby ally. When that ally is hit with an attack, Cas can roll Acrobatics. If his result is higher than the attack roll, the attack is blocked. If his result is lower, the damage of the attack transfers to him.

Personal History:

Comes from a military family. His grandfather was in the Guatemalan Navy for years before being captured by a US Navy vessel not far from the coast of Florida in 1912. After being shown evidence of corruption in his own government, he gave intel in exchange for a new identity in the US. He started a life on the east coast and eventually settled down. His daughter was born five years later joined the US Navy in 1942 after getting a degree in mechanical engineering. After marrying a man she met during her years of service and having two sons, she encouraged them both to follow in her footsteps. Daniel “Cas” Castellanos (born 1947) and his younger brother Lazaro “Zero” Castellanos (born 1951) became trusted agents in the Navy and were eventually assigned to test a new type of military submarine designed to move quickly and under the radar. Several tests went off without a hitch. But in September of 1977, a test took the submarine farther away from port than it had ever been before. Since the test was completely secret, the submarine was able to go into areas of the ocean labeled completely off-limits for vessels by the Foundation. It was attacked by something— Lazaro doesn’t know what. The explosions resulting from the damage damaged Lazaro’s right arm beyond repair and scarred his side and face. He was trapped beneath wreckage within the ship while it was flooding and almost drowned. The foundation was able to rescue him and a few others, but Lazaro’s brother, Daniel, was killed in the attack. He spent several months recovering before the Foundation approached him. They gave him a prosthetic arm to replace the one he lost. Nothing special, but more than anyone else could have given him. He doesn’t really know why, but when they walked in, and they called him Lazaro, he told them to call him Cas.
