Veteran Ex-Military Grunts

Trained in some of the most elite militaries in the world, the Soldiers are probably the best combat troops to have ever set foot on a battlefield. Many were the original recipiants of cybernetic limb technology, as well as many of the reflex boost systems so commonly seen today on the modern street. Some were even the guiney pigs for various chemical and genetic experimentations designed to create the "perfect soldier". Many of these X-Soldiers didn't survive the conversion process.

On top of it all, the nations that trained the Soldiers can now barely afford to feed them--let alone equip them properly. After defending their governments during the riots and revolutions during the Technoshock Collapse, many were simply discharged and left to their own devices. Disillusioned, some turned to violence--becoming petty warlords and vandals. Others gave up on life, slipping into alchoholism and drug abuse. But the majority attempted to maintain the military life as best they could, joining mercenary teams and corporate armies. While not as equipped for the deadly world of the Urban Jungle as well as their cousins the Solos, the Soldiers are still some of the best and the most dangerous individuals around.

Combat Sense: The ability of the Soldier to anticipate danger, notice ambushes, and avoid harm. The Combat Sense skill is added to all initiative rolls. 1/2 the skill is added to "combat related" Awareness/Notice rolls (GM's call). Combat Sense is based off the characters REF stat.

"Listen up you screwhead 'punks... Edgerunners. Fine, whatever. You can call yourselves anything that you want to when those Boostergangers outside come a knocking. Hey! Are you listening?!? What the Hell did you think you were getting into when you wandered this far into the Combat Zone? Listen, I know you're all strung out of shape, but stay frosty and alert. We can't afford to let one of those bastards in here. Why? Because we've got twenty helpless civillians at our backs praying to God that we can save them. Sure we can run, but they can't. I may have been a drunk bum sleeping in the streets ever since I was discharged, but there are some things you never forget. I don't know about you, but in the Marines were were taught to never give up, and never leave a man behind. Semper Fi, 'Punks, Semper Fi..."
