A slightly less villainous/more heroic version of the first "'80s military cartoon" character I thought of (guess who).
IANAS (I Am Not A Soldier), so I don't know if my background/personality is too unrealistic, but he was fun to write up. Codename:
Janos First and Last Name:
Milosh Kaya. Several known aliases: Miles Kavendish, Mel Kandrian, Kyle Marsh, etc. Birthplace:
Ankara, Turkey. Primary Specialty:
Intelligence – HUMINT. Secondary Specialty:
Native Language Speaker – Eastern European languages. Military Grade:
Corporal (E-4). Reduced in rank due to disciplinary issues. Character Bio:
Milosh Kaya grew up in Turkey, and claims that larceny is in his veins, a part of his purported Gypsy ancestry. He joined a theatrical troupe as a teenager and toured Europe and the United States, but was forced to leave behind his successful career after a drunken brawl with another actor over a woman at a post-wrap party. After learning “the art of the con” on the road, on the run from the law, he settled into a successful series of white collar jobs on the West Coast, claiming over a dozen aliases and pocketing thousands (if not millions) in embezzled funds before being arrested, and choosing to serve his country after a short prison sentence.
Milosh is 5' 8" tall, 178 lbs., with a slightly swarthy complexion, dark brown eyes and dark brown, curley hair. He speaks several Eastern European languages fluently. He is proficient with most small arms, and a passable hand-to-hand combatant, but his real skill is in infiltration and subterfuge. He is known to have a living aunt in Turkey, as well as a brother and sister living in New York. He frequently watches classic films of all genres, and has two pets, a Persian cat named "Gene" and a parrot named "Judy".
Janos is a masterful con man; almost too untrustworthy to consider for a unit such as (unit), an intense personal loyalty to (unit commander) makes him a valued member. Janos possesses the uncanny ability to duplicate peoples' mannerisms, speech patterns, even their thought patterns and attitudes. Janos can fit into any company, get anything for his unit for a reasonable price through barter, and his practical joker streak helps him make a fool of anyone he can't manage to befriend. Janos seems to thrive in the structure and discipline of military life, giving his existence a meaning it had totally lacked before. Janos seems uncomfortable talking about himself and his past, the hearts and lives his deception had left shattered, finding it easier to adopt yet another “role” than to confront the questionable things he's done to advance his own needs and wants.
In his off hours, Milosh is a heavy drinker and womanizer. Milosh sometimes expresses doubts about the United States' role in recent world events. Whether this is genuine concern, a displacement of his feelings of guilt, or a build-up to a “role” as a double-agent (or triple-agent!), is hard to say. No one but he can say what face Janos will present to the world next.Character Quote:
“They say I am a man of a thousand faces. I say that they are off by one gender, and a factor of ten.” Janos
