Describe your character's appearance. Include eye colour, hair colour, height, build, and anything extra.

    Nothing about Jonathan’s visible physique would point to his current occupation in the Marine Corps. His size is relatively average, standing at five foot ten inches and weighing around one hundred and ninety pounds. He wears his hair in the traditional military crew cut, though he tends to keep his facial hair longer than dictated in the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations. One peculiar thing about Jonathan’s face is that his eyes aren’t the same color. His right eye is light blue while his left is dark green. His hair is dark brown.

    Jonathan sports some tattoos and scars from his years in service. His first tattoo, still unfinished, is on his right shoulder blade. It is the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor of the Marine Corps with seven ranks and names underneath it. These are names of his friends who were killed in combat. His second tattoo is on his left bicep and it says Never Forget. He has a scar on his left shoulder blade about the size of a softball from a fire he got caught up in as a kid. He has a scar on both sides of his thigh from an Insurgent when he was In-Country.

Character play-by (Actor/actress that portrays your character)

    Lucas Black

Likes/Dislikes, at least three each.

    Likes:
  • Jonathan loves the MARINE CORPS. He was raised in a Marine family and was taught by his father and brother about what it takes to be a Marine. He plans on raising his family the same way he was raised.
  • Jonathan liked SHOOTING even before he enlisted. He enjoys the way rifles or handguns feel in his hands and the adrenaline he feels when he pulls the trigger and feels the recoil from the weapon.
  • Jonathan enjoys HUNTING. He learned this passion as a kid from his brother when he was home on leave and he never dropped the hobby.
    Dislikes:
  • From his time in Afghanistan and Iraq, he tends to dislike Afghanis and Iraqis. Not that he is openly racist. He’s just lost a lot of good friends from Insurgents there.
  • He hates being asked if he has ever killed anyone or has seen anyone die. If asked by a Pogue he will call probably call them a Pogue and walk away, unless it is a superior officer then he will stand at attention and remain silent.
  • People who act superior over someone due to intellect or intellect. Rank makes you superior in the chain of command but not in knowledge of the battlefield.

Skills, at least three.

Strengths/Weaknesses, at least three each.

    Strengths:

  • Jonathan has achieved and maintained Expert on the Marine Corps Rifle Qualification Course which places him among the best shooters in the Marine Corps and probably in the world.
  • Jonathan is a decent cook, able to cook many things from scratch, though they might not look near as good as they taste.
  • Jonathan will never leave an someone behind. Whether they are dead, wounded, or lost he will look for them and try to return them home safe and sound.
    Weaknesses:

  • Despite his outgoing nature, Jonathan tends to keep shy away from making friends due to the fact he has lost so many.

  • Jonathan suffers from mild PTSD that ranges from nightmares to attacking someone who touches him while he’s asleep. This can be dangerous for future comrades or relationships.

At least three important events in your character's life and why it matters.

  • Joining the Marine Corps
  • First deployment to Afghanistan
  • Taliban Ambushed his squad killing three Marines during his Second Deployment
  • Passed Selection to MSOR
  • Finish MSOR training and places in his new Unit
  • Unit ambushed and hit with energy weapons (covered up by Military Intelligence saying his convoy was hit by an IED)

Main goal:

    Protect the planet from hostile alien forces.

Greatest fear:

    Failing in his duty to protect his nation and his world.

What does your character not like about themselves? At least three things.

  • Jonathan hates that he is so outgoing. He wishes he could say no to someone asking for help but he doesn’t dare attempt it.
  • He dislikes the rather large scar on his back from an IED.
  • That he was unable to protect seven of his friends from the enemy.

Why was your character chosen for the Stargate program? (Include any skills that would be part of the reason.)

    During one of his deployments in the middle east, Alpha Team(Jonathan’s Special Operations Team) and Bravo Team were assigned to go into Iran and begin training pro-American rebels in the use of weapons to be used against the Iranian government. The assignment was planned to last twenty months but was called short when the two Special Operations teams were ambushed by superior numbers. The two fifteen man teams dug in and began returning fire. They then began taking what they thought was Mortar fire and began an organized retreat towards the vehicles and the Afghani-Iranian border. Half way through the ambush, Jonathan and six others volunteered to provide covering fire so the others could escape. It was here that Jonathan took a staff blast to his left shoulder. Because of his vest he was able to survive the lethality of the hit though he did suffer 3rd degree burns and a concussion from hitting his head on a rock after being launched by the attack.

    During his debriefing he told Military Intelligence that what they thought were mortars was actually a strange look staff weapon that shot out an extremely hot round that instantly cauterized his wound. After this, Jonathan was transferred to Cheyenne as Security for a Deep Space Telemetry installation.

Describe your character's personality, at least one hundred words.

    Jonathan is a loud, noisy, slightly perverted Marine that has a tendency to make light of most things. Despite this, he doesn’t try to make friends with people. He rarely shares his personal feelings with anyone and doesn’t try to relate with anyone, though that is hard with anyone that has been through the same things he has been through. From his time out in the field away from military bases and strict officers, he has adopted a sort of disobedience when it comes to the grooming and uniform standards of the Marine Corps. He cares little for them as he has found they have little effect in battle. When it comes to weapons and knowing how they operate he is one cocky man. When he carries a firearm he rarely leaves the safety on, a habit from always being at risk from attack in the field. Because of his time serving in MSOR he has developed a loose formality with the enlisted men and officers, usually half-assed salutes and referring to enlisted by their first names or nicknames.

Your character's history, at least 300 words.

    Jonathan was born to Retired Marine Gunnery Sergeant Mathew O’Loughlan and Marine Staff Sergeant Elizabeth O’Loughlan at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He was the second son, his brother being six years older than him. During his early years Jonathan never got along with his brother, mother, or father. He didn’t like the strictness of his parents and was more than a little scared of his one legged dad. It wasn’t until his brother enlisted in the Marine Corps that Jonathan began to appreciate the values his family instilled into him. As Jonathan grew older, he began to accept more and more of the Marine Corps values, though he still got in trouble as a teenage with alcohol in high school. Jonathan chose to enlist in the Marine Corps immediately after High School due to 9/11.

    Because of the time he spent with his brother learning how to shoot in the military fashion, and the strictness of his childhood, Jonathan was able to do exceptionally well in Boot Camp and School of Infantry. It was there that he scored Expert for the first time using the M16. His first deployment into a combat zone was immediately after finishing his training and he was deployed to Afghanistan in late 2002 at the end of Operation Anaconda. He stayed in country for thirteen months before he unit was recalled to the states for a couple months of R&R. His second deployment into Afghanistan was marked with bloodshed. His convoy was hit and his squad lost three men. Because of his actions to pull the wounded men from the Humvees, he was promoted to Corporal. After his first enlistment period ended, he reenlisted for another four years. In 2006, Jonathan was promoted to Corporal and performed a lateral MOS change from Rifleman to Reconnaissance man.

    In 2008 Jonathan was offered the chance to try out for the Marine Corps Special Operations Regiment. Jonathan gladly accepted and after 20 months of training, Jonathan was a Special Forces Operator. After, Alpha Team and Bravo Team were tasked to train Rebel groups within Iran to destabilize the government and halt nuclear weapons manufacturing and tests. They worked closely with CIA handlers who made sure weapons and ammunition made it to the teams and the rebels. The CIA dubbed it Operation Black Panther due to the fact that the operators would be in country without any support of any kind. After being in country for six months of the intended twenty, the two teams were ambushed by a superior force using advanced technology. Military Intelligence and the CIA covered it up by saying a convoy was hit by IEDs in Afghanistan during a routine patrol. Because of Jonathan’s close experience with the effects of a staff blast and somewhat knowledge of the range of attacks he was assigned as security for a Deep Space Telemetry post.



Roleplay sample (please use the character you're creating):

    He could still hear the gunfire ringing in his ears. He had already been home for two weeks from his second tour in Afghanistan and his body still ached for the battlefield. His hands missed the feel of his M16 and he felt like he was about to float away without his thirty pound vest on. He also found that he was being hyper-vigilant while driving down the street, like the car on cinderblocks parked on the street was packed full of artillery shells and about to explode. Turns out it wasn’t about to explode but he was. He really was going to explode if he had to deal with anything else.

    Jonathan slammed on his breaks and swerved to the right, towards the sidewalk as a van pulled out in front of him. Had he not been so preoccupied with the not-so-IED-infested streets of Camp Lejeune, he probably would have noticed the van and the light pole his car was currently wrapped around. Lucky enough for him he had been wearing his seatbelt and not going fast enough to cause any immediate damage to the pole, though he was certain a lot of people didn’t have power right then. Jesus his head hurt. “Crap. I hope I didn’t hurt anyone.” He felt something sticky on his forehead but he just assumed it was sweat until he was able to open his door and stand up. He was suddenly too light headed to stand and immediately dropped to the asphalt. “Shit I must have hit my head against the steering wheel.” He reached up and felt at the splitting headache he had. He immediately felt stinging and pulled his hands away and looked at them. Yep, definitely hit his head against the steering wheel. His hands were covered in the sticky crimson that was known as blood.

    He looked around and saw that the van had stopped in front of his car and the driver had called the police and possible an ambulance. Jelly-legged, Jonathan carefully stood up and made his way to the van, smartly using it to hold himself up. “I think we should…uh….swap insurance cards. Uh…give me a moment to get mine.” He reached for his wallet in his back pocket and pulled out it out. He fumbled with it for a few seconds before finally managing to pull out his insurance card and hand it to the woman. Man was his brother going to be pissed at him for wrecking his car.
