Personality and interests

Jovial and willing to be a wingman, Emerson's good nature is only marred by the life he has lived to this point. He fills bitter for not being able to do much of anything due to his injuries against the wildcat attack some time ago.

Emerson enjoys flying, drinking, and ensuring that his ship is not only the sturdiest, but the fastest he can make it.

After having a harrowing escape from the Horror of Mfinda Mine, he and Ezra Singh have begun to express similar feelings. He is still unsure of how their relationship will continue and is loathe to make the first move. The recent romance has given him some old memories best left forgotten.

History

Emerson once cared about his past, often reminiscing some fond memories of Beeter's Cradle and running the belt with a profiteering crew in Typhon, but he has little time to face the past nowadays.

His military record for the Central Systems indicates he is a combat pilot, taking part in the Titan War during its final days of conflict. During that time, he tallied fourteen fighter kills and severely damaged cruiser with help from the rest of his wing. Even when he was shot down, he simply grabbed another fighter and fought harder.

During the wildcat invasion of Jericho, he partook in the defense of Orbital before being shot down. During the combat, he was severely injured and was forced to make an emergency landing at Clarke's Island. There he remained for some time until healed enough to be cleared to fly. Since, he continues to ply through the sky and black, offering services as a mechanical engineer.

Though if recently, Emerson has once more been drawn into turmoil on the peaceful planet. Despite a recent rise in paygrade for a spacer, he and two others were first to encounter the horrors of Mfinda Mine. The events of that near-fatal incident are still fresh, and Holiday is now once more diving into interesting times.

Player Notes

Has a pilot cybernetic enhancement for spatial awareness

Call Sign: Zeke

Continuation of this character from the previous Jericho's Landing game.

He owns De Lacy-Tango 485, a Type-A class vessel. While it is currently stock, Emerson has been looking for any opportunity to upgrade his craft. Currently, the ship has two weapons, single turrets of 55mm PDCs located in the bottom of the bow's "chin" and on top of the aft fuselage (see Type-A character pic for detail). A fair amount of the craft has received an upgrade to life support systems, allowing for extended operation with minimal waste. Most of the staterooms are empty or are being used for storage, save for the stateroom nearest to the bridge.

The ship's main Slipspace Drive (FTL) has recently been reconnected.

Status

Alive

Active

Wounded in the leg, currently healing. He favors the leg.
