The son of a Taurian farmer, Baxter yearned to do more with his life and make a name for himself. His big chance came in 3064 when, while piloting his family’s Agromech, he came across a group of pirate infantry who were headed towards the family’s stead. Rather then warning his family or the local authorities, Baxter simply waded into the enemy infantry with his agromech’s combine, decimating the infantry squad in a gory mess. By the time reinforcements arrived, the enemy infantry had been repulsed, and Baxter’s agromech was coated in blood and gore from its victims.
Vanishing, he re-appeared a year later on Galatea. Lying about his age, he gained employment with Danae Weiss’ Blackguards mercenary unit, the commander being impressed by his achievements. Joining the Blackguards, his reputation spread, earning him the nickname of “Agricultural Implement Man Baxter”. At present, he is assigned to Charlie Company, obstinately as a recon pilot, but frequently employed for anti-infantry and scorched earth operations.
Baxter seems to enjoy watching other people suffer, and inflicting pain upon them. He particularly likes attacking infantry, especially with flamers, and watching them burn. He also tends to giggle a lot to himself. Within the Blackguards’ ranks of “questionable” members, Baxter may simply be the most out and out evil and cruel.
On occasion, Baxter will fixate on a random woman and follow her around hopelessly, and do whatever she says. This infatuation was exploited by captain Dyron to aid in her reshuffle of units and subsequent escape; as a result, he hates her, and has sworn to kill her very solely and painfully.
Baxter appears to be younger then he actually is. He has short black hair and black eyes, and wears a scruffy goatee beard that looks like he only grew it to look older. He seems to be constantly twitching.
FS9-O Firestarter Omnimech
Baxter's Firestarter has a custom wepaons configuration that combines his loves of setting things on fire and stabbing things. In addition to its fixed flamers, the mech mounts an extra pair of flamers in the arms, a large laser, two medium lasers and a hatchet.
