Name: Corran Halcyon

Rank: Ensign

Callsign: Backlash

Birthplace: Caprica

Flight Jacket: Viper Mk II, Small Arms

Bio: Originally callsigned "Lancer" by squadmates (for his willingness to engage in head-to-head passes), Halcyon was among those scrambled to defend Caprica during the Cylon attack.  Disabled by the CNS virus and getting shot up by Raiders, he let his ship fall into the atmosphere before punching out safely.  After several weeks of scrounging supplies and fragging toasters in ones & twos, he found a group of resistance fighters and joined up.  Eventually, they were evacuated by Raptors from Galactica.  He was folded into the 58th since his old unit had been completely destroyed.

Halcyon also had the bad luck to be planetside when the Cylons occupied New Caprica.  Since downloaded toasters had identified him as a member of the old Caprican resistance, he was left loose for a short while before the Cylons imprisoned him and began to torture him in hopes that he had linked up with the new resistance and would give up information.  Actually, he had not yet connected with the resistance, but did his best to keep his interrogators guessing.

He was sprung from the detention facilities during the evacuation, and returned to the 58th with even more of a personal score to settle with the toasters - they kept him locked in solitary away from daylight for months, and the torture left him with a scarred face and loss of vision clarity in his left eye (fuzziness; he can see light and shapes, but no detail; his left eye is only good as peripheral vision).  Although he's adjusting to the vision impairment and has managed to hide it so far, he busted part of his requalifications in the MkVII, and in general his flying isn't as good as it used to be.  But for the moment he's safe, because that's true of a lot of pilots.

The quieter, no-life-outside-flying attitude he has fallen into since getting out made fellow pilots conclude he's not interested in much besides revenge, so they have taken to calling him "Backlash" now, which seems to suit him fine.

Is there a limit as to how long should the bios be? I felt a creative streak, and I wrote a rather lenghty bio.. :)

There's no limit per say, but generally you want them short enough to keep people interested, and not long enough to become a best selling novel.

Name: Simone Levy

Rank: Lieutenant

Callsign: Nike

ID Number: 069258
   
Birthplace: Regulus, Leonia

Flight Jacket: Viper, Raptor, Low Yield Ordinance, Small Arms Training, Command, Viper/Raptor Maintenance, Free Fall/Ground Tactics,     Field Medic

Bio: Born and raised in a military family Nike knew from a young age what she wanted to do. She applied to the Caprican Flight Academy, both her mother and father attended there, getting in with ease. She passed basic flight her first year, and spent that summer aboard the Battlestar Solaria. After graduation, with honors, she applied for the Academy at Picon.

     There, she studied command and combat tactics, specializing in free fall and normal gravity environments. Nike graduated with top honors, and a slew of commissions, including one on the Colonial Fleet Flagship, the Battlestar Atlantia. She declined that offer, and chose the commission from the Battlestar Valkyrie.

     She flew under Commander Adama for 2 years on the Valkyrie, before his command was transferred to the Galactica. She stayed on, as did most of his pilots. During the cylon attack, she was waiting on Galactica, readying for decommissioning, before transferring to the Atlantia. As a senior pilot, she was allowed to invite 2 guests -- her mother and father.

     While half of Galactica's pilots made their way back to Caprica for re-deployment, she stayed on the Galactica, readying to head to her month long stay with her parents on Leonia. They boarded Colonial 1, and she turned her back on the Galactica. During the rescue phase of operations, she was a back-up medic, as even her scant knowledge was useful.

     When Colonial 1 jumped to meet the Galactica, she was picked up by the Galactica, and re-assigned to the 58th Wing, Red Squadron.
She currently flies Red 3.

My word, do we have our first female pilot in the 58th? That's brilliant!

..it's a bit on the lenghty side, I'm afraid. Couldn't help myself; I suddenly had this story in my head and an urge to tell it.
If you guys feel that it's way too long, though, I might be able to - reluctantly - come up with a shorter version.. :)

Yikes! Well let me have a proper look at it, and I'll see what I can do.

As for the logos for the squadrons, I wouldn't bother asking me. My photoshop skills are limited, and certainly not good enough for squadron logos...

I have photoshop skills, but currently I've got so much work to do I can't really promise everything. It is possible things might clear up a bit in a few days.. will let you know.
