Default Freedom Force: The Minuteman [IC]

Freedom Force: The Minuteman Character Sheet and Notes 1 of 4

Character Sheet
Jacob Morrison aka the Minuteman
Quote:
1) Occupation and History

Jacob was orphaned young where the foster care system failed him. Jacob spent most of his adult life in Green Berets. His skill and bravery got noticed and he was approached to for an experimental program to develop super soldiers by a private company contracted by the government. The project was given the code name "Minuteman". He was Minuteman Alpha, the first in a line of super soldiers. However, unknown to Jacob, the company was a front for a rogue element of the U.S. government. The missions he was engaging in were furthering their cause to create a military force that would allow them to overthrow the US Military and depose the current American government. Jacob found this out through and anonymous source, which identifies his/her/themselves as [The Patron]. They helped him escape and also to destroy and steal any information pertaining to project Minuteman. With the direction, funding and resources of the anonymous source Jacob foiled every covert operation the Rouge element plotted. Jacob is constantly hunted by agents of this organization. In addition to disrupting the Rouge elements plans he also takes time to fight crime all over the country. He is directed on his missions by his secretive patron through a computer AI known to him as Cyrus. The AI is thought to be based on a secret satellite orbiting the earth, though The Patron and Cyrus tend to tell Jacob only what he needs to know.

2) Physical description

Standing 6’3” tall and weighing in at 215 pounds. Hair is black but kept high and tight military style. He has greyish blue eyes and is clean shaven.

3) Attributes and skills (exceptional ones only)

Minuteman super strength, agility and endurance. He is a master at guns, knives and hand to hand.

4) Values and motivations

He is a patriot and only does things to further American interests and the fundamentals of the Constitution and the American way. So far his Patron has not violated his ideals.

5) Interactions with others

Jacob is a serious person. Jokes and goofing off annoys him. He is laconic and stoic.

6) Useful knowledge

Jacob is a softy for kids, beautiful women, dogs and cats. He doesn’t like snakes. He is a fan of MMA and football.

7) Distinguishing feature

Minuteman armor (see below).

8) Powers!

Training
  • Jacob is one of the elite of the elite of the Green Berets.

Physical Augmentation Serum
  • His top speed running is 25 mph , he can leap 10 feet up from a stand still/ 20 from a running start. His long jump has been recorded at 21 feet from a stand still to 42 feet from a running start. His bones have been laced carbon fiber to help make them resistant to injury.

Experimental Nanites
  • Jacob's body has been injected with microscopic Nanites that can "spin" his molecules, allowing Cyrus to detect him anywhere in the world and teleport him. They also help him to heal and recover quickly from unconsciousness and protect him from sickness and disease.

Patron
  • Jacob has an unknown patron who has equipped him with guidance and ultra high technology, including Cyrus.

Cyrus
  • The Patron has explained that Cyrus is an advanced expert system, indistinguishable from an AI, onboard an automated satellite with advanced surveillance, analysis and communication capabilities. "He" can also teleport people and materials whose molecules have been made to "spin." So far, the ability to spin molecules is rather limited; requiring first the objects be made of certain key "spinnable" materials and second, to be run through a device called a "spinner" (that's the size of a microwave). The only exception is Jacob himself... The experimental nanites inside him are able to spin Jacob's molecules and his specialized equipment.

Body Armor
  • When in Minuteman mode he wears a star spangled uniform made of high tech light weight polymers resistant to small arms fire, knives, flames. It is sealed and provides a life support system that allows him to function comfortably in the hottest desert or the coolest tundra and 12 hours of air. Its helmet has IR, HUD, and enhanced hearing capabilities. Cyrus can access onboard cameras in his helmet. Of course the armor is spinnable.

Arsenal
  • Minuteman .50b Pistol with ultra tech reusable silencer. Spinnable.
  • Conventional weapons and gadgets made spinnable.
  • Other experimental weapons.. made spinnable mostly.

Standard kit (all spinnable)
  • Loaded AR15.
  • Webgear with 4 AR15 clips.
  • Titanium alloy combat knife.
  • Various gadgets.

9)NPCS

Freedom Force: The Minuteman Character Sheet and Notes 2 of 4

Current Concerns:

Four Rogue confirmed agents confirmed on a cargo ship being unloaded in Newport News, Virginia, United States.

A firearm is "in evidence" in August, Georgia, United States that matches the kinds only used by Rogue agents (and used by Minuteman, of course!). It is a .50 pistol with a state of the art silencer that can truly be used over and over again.

There is some footage of a murder that took place in New York, New York. The woman was glowing as a man shot her with a SKS assault rifle in a train depot.

There are some top secret CIA documents recently submitted to Homeland Security regarding an American family, including a former US Army Colonel, that is visiting China and spending a great deal of time with top Chinese Hardliners.


"The four identified Rogue agents all disappeared from the grid when you started busting heads in Silicon Valley. Were all involved in electronic manufacturing at TechniCAL, a small parts fabrication company.

79 year old Adam Reid. Former Major, US Army Intelligence. Executive at TechniCAL.

Spoiler:  


42 year old Glen Coultier. Former Lieutenant, US Coast Guard. Dishonorable discharge. Information security officer at TechniCAL.

Spoiler:  



34 year old Fred Streater. Former corporal, US army. A computer technician at TechniCAL. FBI records show affiliation with the Ku Klux Klan.

20 year old Elsie Vancleave. Listed as an intern at TechniCAL. Sealed records show a conviction of grand theft auto.

Minutemen were private citizens, independently organized to form well-prepared militia companies; ready, in minutes, to respond to the threat of the tyrannical Brittish.

In 2015, a military build had required a new kind of Minuteman.

Joseph is on the docks in Newport News, Virginia, United States at 11:34pm local time. He is watching unobtrusively from afar in his "civilian" clothes the unloading of a massive cargo ship.

Joseph's has an implanted communicator today. Impossible to detect.

Cyrus reiterates information Minuteman already knows, but helps we, the audience, know what's going down! Cyrus is a state-of-the-art "expert system," that is as close to an Artificial Intelligence one might encounter. To hide the electronic nature and to avoid being too "Jarvis," Cyrus's speech patterns are adversarial.

"I told you before, there are four, count them, FOUR, individuals from the search list on that cargo ship. Do you think they are just seeling girl scout cookies? Here let me give you a run down..."

A data feed comes up on the HUD on Minuteman's contacts. There is a picture next to each. They were all part of dummy corporations that disappeared when Minuteman started going after Rogue elements...

Minuteman says to Cyrus,"Just give me the run down and be quiet. I can't concentrate with you harping on me about the mission. I will take care of it. Be on stand by to send me the suit and standard combat kit."

"I would if you'd listen."

"The ship is the Oberon. Last port was Yokohama, Japan. The Oberon's Manifest shows it as storing 500 Toyota brand vehicles on the below decks while cargo containers above deck contain auto parts and electronic components. It is bound for Tacoma. Its declared intention is to drop off about half its cargo, fill up with some additional cargo and then head out as early as 11am later today."

"The ship is manned by a captain, a first mate, twenty able bodied seamen and twenty more deckhands. There are twenty more men from this port who are assisting in the unloading of vehicles from the cargo hold. They typically unload fifty cars at a time."

"The four identified Rogue agents all disappeared from the grid when you started busting heads in Silicon Valley. Were all involved in electronic manufacturing at TechniCAL, a small parts fabrication company.

79 year old Adam Reid. Former Major, US Army Intelligence. Executive at TechniCAL.

42 year old Glen Coultier. Former Lieutenant, US Coast Guard. Dishonorable discharge. Information security officer at TechniCAL.

20 year old Elsie Vancleave. Listed as an intern at TechniCAL. Sealed records show a conviction of grand theft auto.

Take extra note that all of the ABs (able body seamen) are trained to repel boarders. Just because some are equipped with pistols, doesn't mean they are in on whatever the Rogue plot may be.

"Yes, yes, I'm working on it. We have enough power still stored up to send you the standard kit and maybe send you something small. Then we will be dry. Remember, it takes thirty minutes for full recharge. We can transport you with less than a full charge, but the distance will be short."

"Of course," says Cyrus, as though you had to ask.

Thermal imaging comes up on the Minuteman's HUD contacts. The ship is 240 meters across. 32 meters across. It has a bridge with three human-shaped heat sources. It has a sighting tower with two human-shaped heat sources. There are four human-shaped heat sources moving between and around the top-deck containers (probably last pass inspections / inventory).

There are dozens of human-shaped heat signatures in car shaped heat signatures driving out of the cargo hold over the ramps onto the docks. They all appear to have one human driver only (no passengers) as they assemble for some specialized car stowing trucks. There are a dozen more human-shaped heat signatures on the docks; some with the trucks, one at a giant crane loader on the docks near the ship; many just "huddled" hanging out.

An image comes up of the known positions of cameras. There are several blindspots from the cameras. The tower or crane operators would not be blind to them, but they aren't meant to be focused on intruders either. The only direct route onto the ship from the ground is the heavy ramp on which the Toyotas are being driven from the ship.

A line begins to form of the drivers who have dropped their Toyota's off and they head back to the ship for another load of cars. The biggest concern might be the security fellow who is looking over the people as they pass, making sure, somewhat leisurely, that everyone has their numbered id badges prominently displayed as they board the ramp.

Minuteman says,"Keep an eye on the security guard. I am heading towards the blind spots to get a closer look. Then put a non-lethal in the kit if you are so worried about the crew. I will try to subdue them without casualties." He makes his way to the blind spots.
