Captain Orion James

Played by Jeremy

Age: 35
Sex: Male
Height: 6’2″
Weight: 190 lbs


“That was not part of the plan.”


Muscular build, light green eyes, brown hair buzz cut, various battle scars on his body.


Controlling, outspoken, jovial but standoffish, short tempered.


The James family has an extensive and historic military background. Orion’s father, Admiral Maurice James, put a lot of undue pressure and high expectations on his three children, especially his oldest. After an act of insubordination (miscommunication) with commanding officer (Colonel Julian Eckhart) and a messy (and very public divorce) from his wife, Captain Aurora James, Orion has been passed up for promotion yet again. Orion has accepted this challenging assignment to regain the respect and credibility with the military and his father.


  1. Follow the chain of command.
  2. Emotions are an unnecessary complication.
  3. Never back down from a fight.


  1. Zero casualties on this expedition.
  2. Maintain order and obedience among non-military personnel.
  3. Promotion to Major upon return to base.


  • By the Book:  Once per session you twist your words with powerful sounding implications and advanced military jargon. These possibly fictitious regulations let you double any Regulations or Command roll.


  • Bad Divorce:  It didn’t work out. Actually it went nuclear. Not only do you have less money to live on than your peers, your ex or her lawyer has an annoying habit of popping up at the worst times. Earn 1 CP if this complicates your job.
  • Bad Reputation:  You have a history. You might have been a loose cannon who couldn’t back up your swagger. Maybe you lost a large quantity of company resources. Perhaps you just couldn’t keep from pointing out the colonel’s faults in public. If your boss rips you a new one, earn 1 CP.
