  • Carsmith: 2. Broken cars are just like broken people, only less time intensive, not as nosy, and without any psychological baggage in the way. +2 to Engineering when working with civilian vehicles.

Personal History:

Born 1919 into poverty, Character had to make due in life. His father was a drunk for wavered between abusive and negligent, while his mother died after her fourth child. With his household situation being the way it was, he was forced to look after his siblings, patching them up when their father was feeling especially rowdy. Character took up a job repairing cars, up until 1920, when he was conscripted into the army.

Basic ideas:

  • Absent mother, Physically abusive drunkard father growing up
  • Poverty, of course
  • 3/4 younger siblings to look after
  • Drafted into WWII
  • Deserted the army???

Things to ask

  • Realistic timeframes
  • Especially when it comes to cars
  • Realistic ages
  • Would anyone even get away with desertion, and then find themselves employed by the Foundation?
