Koractu "Ragnarok" nar Kesnyx
6'5" Tall, Large Build, Golden Hair with streaks of Gray, Light Blue Eyes.
- Pre-career: Koractu of the house _________ was the youngest of seven in his family, he was only five years old when his family was absorbed into an up and coming new Pride; bent on solidifying their position on the Planet, they aggressively expanded their campaign of Land Acquisition through Mercenary Service. In order to prepare for his future role, Koractu joined the Marines.
- Term 1: “Assigned to an assault on an enemy fortress.”
For his first assignment, Koractu and his squad were sent to wipe out Rebel Insurgents, unfortunately everything went wrong, starting with their CO being gunned down. Pinned down by heavy fire, and ammo running low, Koractu led the remaining marines to victory, setting the stage for a proud military career.
- Term 2: “Assigned to a Black Ops mission.”
Based on previous displays of ferocious prowess, Koractu was a natural fit for Black Ops. It was during this time in his career he earned the call sign, “Ragnarok” and another promotion.
- Term 3: “Disaster Strikes! A mission went wrong and you are stranded behind enemy lines.”
Captured, beaten, and lost, Koractu spent the next four years as a POW. No attempts at a rescue were made to retrieve him, and he was written off as another casualty. One night, Koractu, and his fellow captives were able to successfully escape via an underground tunnel they had been digging for years, once out they were able to evade their captors and made it safely back to base.
- Term 4: “Displayed heroism in battle. You are automatically promoted.”
During a particularly non-memorable battle, Koractu took a bullet for his CO, unbeknownst to him, he was the grandson to a prominent Colonel, this instantly earned him rapid promotion within the rank and file that was the NCO. However, his joy was short lived because he was still regarded as an oddity amongst the other marines.
- Term 5: “On the front lines of a planetary assault and occupation.”
Despite his rapid advancement, and decades of dedicated service, it was all to clear to Koractu that he would never shatter any glass ceilings; he was a grunt and would never live long enough to see a true commission. Also, by this time in his life, his age was finally catching up with him. Koractu started to suffer a loss of strength in his arms, and his once golden hair was now dulling and graying. The signs for retirement were there, he was discharged with full honurs and awarded a full pension.
- Term 6: “Embroiled in legal trouble.”
Wisely investing his new fortune in vast property holdings, Koractu maneuvered through the social ladder till he was appointed a head broker in a prominent Space Port. His fierce sense of honor kept him from accepting bribes, and his fiercer appearance dissuaded others from retaliating. However this all changed the day some spacer kicked down his door demanding answers. After a brief encounter, that ended in a draw, Koractu learned from Mr. Westin that his signature and seal had been forged, setting wheels into motion that would ultimately bring down an innocent woman, and open the way for illegal sentient trafficking in this sector. Letting his ego get the better of him, he joined Joe in what others would refer to as a “roaring rampage of revenge” as he tracked down those responsible, and made examples of them all. During his time in prison, he maintained communique with Tegan O’Reely, the woman framed for the crime that set everything in motion. It was her letters that gave him strength, and her legal help that led to his sentence being commuted. Hastily liquidating his assets, he now sets out to reclaim his wealth, the only way he knows how, at the end of a blaster.
