Name: Adrian Kalden
Alias: Merchent of Death or Allan Karsson
Nickname: Shadow Master
Augments: Human-like looking arm with hidden knife concealed with it, a data pad helping to process information. The arm can also deploy a small bullet-proof shield, can be attached with a lightweight grappling hook.
Job: Mercenary, assassin, hacker, Fixer, Info broker, engineer
pretty much how he looks with a small laptop messenger bag strapped on his bag within his coat.
Personality: Honorable, thorough, driven, stubborn Stoic, distant, an introvert, with only just a few words to describe Him. He has a mistrust of people in general but in spite of this he willing to help often asking nothing in return. But opens up more as you know him better.
Flaw: Heavy drinker to cope with his loss, rarely seen without a drink in his hand even when he is working when it is not alcohol it is normally copious amounts of tea. Which sometimes can cause multiple trips to the toliet.
Cyborg parts/ powers Neural uplink, cybernetic network Cybernetic arm.
Neural implant: along with his right arm with an implant embedded his brain allowing him to create a personal holo HUD visor over his eyes, enhance spatial awareness and detect security measure. It also acts as a fire control computer giving aim assistance to the wearer and holo targeting increases accuracy for each shot fired, it can also control the laser bullet guidance system for an even more accurate shot. A GPS system and map can also be displayed.
The HUD has many different modes.
The Neural implants increase brain operational speed by 30 times but can be overclocked to 170 times but this can cause acute headaches if used for more than 6 hours.
Gene-mod (X-com experiments) Hyper-reactive pupils, Enhanced Depth Perception, Adrenal Neurosympathy, Mimetic Skin, Muscle Fiber Density, Muscle Fiber Density, adaptive bone marrow
Adrenal Neurosympathy- modifications to the adrenal glands that secrete the hormone known as adrenaline enhancing their aim, mental focus, and speed.
Hyper-reactive pupils- Increases awareness and visual search. Enable Aiden to easily track people.
Mimetic Skin-Confers the ability to change skin pattern to match cover. The clothes are modified to act the same way
Muscle Fiber Density-Confers superhuman leg strength, enabling the soldier to reach high positions up to 5 meters without the need for ladders or other climbing aids.
Adaptive bone marrow-Wound recovery time is reduced by 66% Self-healing but very slow.
The Hyper-reactive Pupils, Adrenal Neurosympathy and Neural augment modifications slows down Aiden’s perception of time, during combat Aiden can inject himself with combat stims that increases the effect.
Combat training: Kalden has had training in hand-to-hand and firearms training with the mysterious X-com organization. before he was a veteran of the US spec ops seal team 3 and is part of over 60 missions before entering the X-com project. Due to his training and augments, he is very strong and fast enough to dodge bullets at times.
Gear: Access to almost any weapon in the world but he has a preferred loadout.
Kriss Vector K10-
A suppressed compact sub machine gun that fires .45 ACP rounds but some of it has been modified as a bull stopper round a gas expanding round that can split a man in half. With a very fast rate of fire
Heavily modified and suppressed M1911A1 Fires the same 45 ACP round as the vector with the same effects easily concealable.
Custom made extremely lightweight version Fires either the .300 Winchester Magnum or .338 Lapua Magnum enhanced by a laser guidance system that leads the bullet to the target. A folding stock for easier transportation.
All guns have the ability to fire explosive, armor piercing or bull stopper rounds.
A carbon fiber blend Bowie knife for emergencies
The Fusion Blade encases a plasma heated metallic core in a micro-thin magnetic field, enabling devastating melee that is capable of setting enemies aflame. used for short range attacks and when guns are not available.
A lightweight ballistic vest that can deflect a .50 cal round and can be easily worn under layers of clothes. Optional climate control system can be installed
A compact version of KITT’s Molecular bonded shell can be used and can stop up to an 81mm rocket but is very power hungry and is to be used only during life-threatening situations
Another one of his most important items is also his least special looking one, his phone looks like any other old smartphone but is one of his most important tools when it comes to hacking it might have less computing power to a computer but using it as a relay device and adding programs into it it has the power to knock out electrical grids and brute force even the strongest of firewalls in seconds if it gets close enough.
Kalden’s bag contains a small laptop and a small foldable quadcopter. the laptop is used to control the drone and for anything else, he needs to do on the move that the phone cannot.
the only downside is the drone is much easy to jam but it is effective in its small size and can be connected via the phone and be used as a relay to send signals to other devices.
Kalden carries an assortment of grenades as well.
Chaff grenade- A flashbang looking grenade that contains sticky strips that jams weapon systems it requires the victim to reload or reset the weapon before it could be used again. It also has the side effect of jamming comms or targetting systems for a short time when the Chaff is still in the air.
Incendiary grenades- Incendiary just fire
9 Banger- works like the original flashbang but fires off 9 concussion chargers as a cluster.
Smoke grenade - Makes smoke
Thermite grenades- A high heat grenade that can either be used to burn through walls or burn entire rooms or both at the same time
EMP grenade- Destroys or damages all electronic systems in the blast area.
K.I.T.T- The Knight Industries Three Thousand a self-aware AI installed in Kalden’s car to Aid in his work providing intel and support including hacking. It is called a VI to avoid an uproar.
Made using Neural network technology it can learn and adapt to changes. It can think autonomously with the prime directive of helping the pilot to the best of its abilities.
A virtual Swiss Army Knife on wheels, the car features a nano-tech driven transformation system, a top speed of 377 mph, and a suite of onboard defensive weapons. K.I.T.T. not only a self-aware AI but also his partner in the field, Closes thing Kalden has to a true friend
. Its capabilities range from hacking to providing heavy fire support and would do anything just to keep Kalden safe. The car hosts on is also unique as the nano-tech transformation system allows the car to turn into any type of car or truck and color it chooses or best fits the situation. It is armored with “Tri-Helical Plasteel 1000 MBS”, or Molecular Bonded Shell plating which protects them from almost all forms of conventional firearms and explosive devices. But this device does not protect internal systems from blast damage.
one of its many modes
It is a self developing AI and learns from its interactions with other people. It can be very scarstic . Loves to probe into his friends lives to embarrass them. he is calm voice can always reassure anyone no matter the situation.
History: Kalden grew up in Ireland before moving to the United States, his father was the founder and CEO of the current defense contractor giant ATLAS Corporation.
When he was 17 he joined the military his superiors took notice of his background and skill and quickly rose the ranks and was offered a place in the special forces community. he did extremely well but was cut short by a grenade which blew off his hand.
When he heard of the X-com Project headed by his father and the US government he was the first to volunteer. The program enhanced his skills and his old robotic hand was replaced with Atlas’s experimental ones made to look like a real hand but under the skin is a datapad that enhances the wearer. Neural up-link and cybernetic networks were also experimental, unhackable and immune to EMP damage while enhancing the wearer’s abilities and boosts hacking skills by a considerable amount.
The gene modifications also made him immune to any illnesses known by man including STD’s. (Check X-com enemy within wiki to learn more about the mods)
When the program ended he emerged top out of 500 all of whom are to be the best in their respective organizations
Till this day he works for his father’s company as a mercenary becoming their best operative and the most feared and sought-after person when they need something done. He is the head of the company’s ‘logistics’ division and has control of all of Atlas’s military capabilities.
Was part of the US secretive 3rd echelon Intel team. operates as a info broker under the alias shadow broker or shadow master.
