Background: Max met Brianna while both were attending the University of Georgia. Max was in ROTC and eventually dropped out to join the Army full time. He has served in the Special Forces and as a hand-to-hand combat instructor. Always looking for something more exciting, Max decided to become a mercenary, and when that became boring, he gravitated to long-haul trucking.
Quote: “My style? I’m a dedicated shitkicker. You?”
Role: Max is the fish out of water. Though surrounded by Eastern Philosophy and lotus flowers, he remains the same as he ever was—former Army Ranger, mercenary, and long-haul trucker.
Adventure Hooks: If a female PC takes Brianna’s place, Max might be helping Katsumoto look for her. However, the GM could just as easily make Max a villain, an absolute terror, working with Marcel to become one of Lin Qi’s assassins.Terry's Tells: Well, he isn't graceful, or pretty, or even particularly skilled if you ask me, but his ability to bull through fights might just land him in the finals!
