The idiot son of a middling noble family, Rand was seen to be not much use to his family beyond possibly being married off. Unfortunately, he proved to not even be worth that much; upon hearing of his family’s plans for him, he decided to run away and find his own way in life. This lead him to Outreach where it was found that, while not the sharpest tool in the shed, Rand was actually a reasonably skilled mechwarrior and marksman.
Rand found employment with Major Weiss’ Blackguards, the major noting his skills and apparently lack of morals. However, the battlefield showed that it wasn’t so much that Rand had a lack of morals, he just simply didn’t know any better. The result was that she gained a soldier who was more then happy to blindly follow whatever order he was given, regardless of circumstances or what he was being told to do.
Currently, Rand is a member of Captain Silmaris’ Bravo company, providing fire support and AA defence for the unit.
Rand has been nicknamed “Rand the Joke” by his fellows; a title that seems somewhat apt. He is literal minded to the point of stupidity, and often makes what seems to be nonsensical or idiotic decisions. He also has a tendency to miss the obvious, and ask strange and stupid questions at in opportune moments.
For all that, he does have a number of positive traits; his loyalty is unquestionable, simply because he’d never think to betray anyone or disobey an order, no matter how suicidal it may seem. He is also an excellent marksman in his mech, and is skilled at AA fire.
Rand is slender and athletic, and is reasonably handsome. He has long brown hair that he wears loose, and blue eyes. He dresses in camouflage fatigues, even where inappropriate.
Rand’s Jaegermech is one of the few mechs in the unit that is consistently painted in a camouflage scheme to suit the environment. At some point, the AC/2s were replaced with LB-X2 cannons.
