Personality/InterestsRobert Glenn Jackson like a grown-up version of the Earnest soldier. He knows what the world is all about, but he intends to do make sure his job is done and see to it that his command goals are met, with no complaints and no backtalk. He’s a combination of supporter and drill sergeant. He leads by example, and he usually leads. He gets to know the minds of his companions and upon their own goals and desires to get this accomplished. This doesn’t make him a villain like a Hypocrite he probably intends this to be to everyone’s benefit. Like a Crusader, he performs best when he’s headed in the direction of his personal goal; unlike the Crusader, he doesn’t have just one goal that dominates his life and can add the other Peoples goals to his own. But if he does take on someone else’s goal, you can be sure that he’ll be unceasing and maybe unbearable in trying to motivate that character toward that goal. He won’t let the other People abandon the goal. Robert just never gives up. This he is suited for this roll. Obviously, as he’s is good person that fallows the law, his goals will be the goals of his command and his society; if he’s In combat situations, Robert Jackson charges into the thick of things and tries to whip up his allies into a combat frenzy. He gravitates to the center of the skirmish line, and if he’s fit for it will try to take on the biggest and baddest opponents. In situations, he’ll be a vigorous font of advice and helpfulness. He tends to be abrupt of speech and firmly set in his opinions sometimes stubborn, but he’s usually a good friend to have around.

Advantages/Disadvantages/QuirksRobert has a natural ability to impress and lead other. Resonant voice he has a naturally clear, resonant, and attractive voice. Influence or reaction when people hear him speak. Robert is seen as a highly skilled professional being a Calvary Officer has its benefits. Quick combat reflexes active defense to attacks, never “freeze in a surprise situation, quickly to wake up, or to recover from surprise or mental stun. Seldom surprise if he is the leader, he can warn others of an ambush. he is incredibly difficult to kill tough constitution.
As a neat freak he likes the house to be clean and to have every element of his life tidy and in order. He does not repetitively and obsessively clean things, but they also can get upset when something is out of order because order equals control, hence security and safety. He has a native reaction to people that makes messes and move things around for no reason. His father gave him silver Cross he would do anything to get it back. Hats dealing with bandits he has no respect for there way of life. Rats, he knows that carry disease. He thinks of them as dirty animals. Will kill them if he has the chance. Robert is Intolerant of stupidity he cannot deal with the stupid people. Not everyone is stupid, but He swears that the world is getting dumber by the day. His view is those who have perfectly good brains but apparently refuse to utilize them.
His code of honor (Calvary Officer): As a Calvary Officer he should be tough but fair, lead from the front, and look out for his men; an enlisted man should look out for his buddies and take care of his equipment. Every soldier should be willing to fight and die for the honor of his unit and commander, service, and country; follow orders; obey the “rules of war”; treat an honorable enemy with respect (a dishonorable enemy deserves a bullet); and bear the good name of the US Calvary with pride. He is Selfless altruistic and self-sacrificing, and put little importance on personal fame and wealth. You must not put his needs even survival before those of someone else. Code of honor (Gentleman’s) Never break your word. Never ignore an insult to yourself, a lady, or your flag. Never take advantage of an opponent in any way; weapons and circumstances must be equal (except in open war). This only applies between gentlemen.
“First to fight!”
