OK then.

Anyway, we can get back to the Ebony Squadron's structure. I ended up changing the number of leaders to five, one for all fighter pilots, one for attack, one for support (helicopters and transports), a base commander, and a carrier's captain. I have the attack plane commander, so the others are up for grabs. All small aircraft from any era are accepted, even civilian planes, and usually are already modified at least for carriers.

The profiles for characters will go like this:

Name: Including nicknames
Call Sign: If any
Species: Including breed
Gender:
Occupation:
Faction: Such as Ebony Squadron or other parties to be involved in the plot.
Weapons/Equipment: Including items of sentimental value
Vehicle: If any. Mainly what characters own.
Armament: If vehicle carries weapons, but anything can carry weapons (if you use your imagination)
Description:
Personality:
Brief History:

I guess I'll post my main characters then. I'll be posting them in the same place in stages, so the computer won't log me out for taking too long.


Name: John Fiske
Call Sign: Viper 1
Species: German Shepherd Dog
Gender: Male
Occupation: Attack Squadron Leader, wingman
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: Glock
Vehicle: Modified tandem-seat Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot attack plane
Armament: 1 GSh-30-2 30mm cannon with 250 rounds, 11 hardpoints for up to 4,400 kg (9,700 lb) of disposable ordnance, including rails for 2 R-60 (AA-8 'Aphid') or other air-to-air missiles for self-defense and a wide variety of general-purpose bombs, cluster bombs, gun pods, rocket pods, laser-guided bombs, and air-to-surface missiles such as the Kh-25ML or Kh-29L
Description: Typical fur color & pattern, brown eyes, 6', medium build
Personality: Stern, tough, but trusts his flight team, may be fighting an illness
Brief History: John Fiske was an air force officer of an unknown English-speaking nation before he had been dishonorably discharged from service, which he became a soldier of fortune afterwords. He became one of the founding members of Ebony Squadron, and one of the main recruiters for new pilots. Only his accent seems to reveal his nationality, perhaps South African.


Name: Erin
Call Sign: Sparrow
Species: Human
Gender: Female
Occupation: Co-pilot
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: FN 2000 assault rifle, Glock handgun
Vehicle: Modified tandem-seat Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot attack plane
Armament: 1 GSh-30-2 30mm cannon with 250 rounds, 11 hardpoints for up to 4,400 kg (9,700 lb) of disposable ordnance, including rails for 2 R-60 (AA-8 'Aphid') or other air-to-air missiles for self-defense and a wide variety of general-purpose bombs, cluster bombs, gun pods, rocket pods, laser-guided bombs, and air-to-surface missiles such as the Kh-25ML or Kh-29L
Description: Hispanic, dark hair w/ light purple highlights, dark brown eyes, 5'7", agile build
Personality: Loyal, hard-working
Brief History: Erin had prided herself in joining the military, but her nation's military would not allow women to join. So she joined mercenary groups that flew aircraft in missions, becoming a prodigy as a pilot, but was still not allowed to operate in missions. It was then she was chosen to join Ebony Squadron as a co-pilot, which she quickly accepted. Even though she hails from a Spanish-speaking nation, she's not in any mood to reveal her origins.


Name: Joel Hart
Call Sign: Condor
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Occupation: Attack pilot, wing leader
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: Glock handgun, combat knife
Vehicle: Modified tandem-seat Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot attack plane
Armament: 1 GSh-30-2 30mm cannon with 250 rounds, 11 hardpoints for up to 4,400 kg (9,700 lb) of disposable ordnance, including rails for 2 R-60 (AA-8 'Aphid') or other air-to-air missiles for self-defense and a wide variety of general-purpose bombs, cluster bombs, gun pods, rocket pods, laser-guided bombs, and air-to-surface missiles such as the Kh-25ML or Kh-29L
Description: Caucasian, light brown hair, gray eyes, 5'10", light build
Personality: Soft-spoken, patient, fierce
Brief History: Little is known about Joel before his time spent as a mercenary pilot for various groups before Ebony Squadron, gaining a reputation of a selfless hero among the soldiers of fortune. Sometimes he would be known as "the doppelsoldner", as he would sometimes earn twice the pay of other mercenaries, but he would take only enough to live and pay for his planes. This reputation had him selected into the Ebony Squadron, but he accepted only if he could use their technology for a personal mission, which he refuses to tell.


Name: Mark Harris
Call Sign: Viper 2
Species: Coyote
Gender: Male
Occupation: Navigator
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: Glock handgun, Enfield L85 assault rifle
Vehicle: Modified tandem-seat Sukhoi Su-25 Frogfoot attack plane
Armament: 1 GSh-30-2 30mm cannon with 250 rounds, 11 hardpoints for up to 4,400 kg (9,700 lb) of disposable ordnance, including rails for 2 R-60 (AA-8 'Aphid') or other air-to-air missiles for self-defense and a wide variety of general-purpose bombs, cluster bombs, gun pods, rocket pods, laser-guided bombs, and air-to-surface missiles such as the Kh-25ML or Kh-29L
Description: Light brown fur w/ gray back, yellow eyes, 5'11", medium-light build
Personality: Optimistic, eager to please
Brief History: Mark would be among the least experienced members of Ebony Squadron's attack group, but he shows impressive prowess in navigational skills to keep him on the team. The reason for his joining the team may be because of another member highly referring him.


Name: Anders Fitzgerald
Call Sign: Copperhead 1
Species: Arctic wolf
Gender: Male
Occupation: Pilot
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: Beretta handgun
Vehicle: EA-6B Intruder scout plane
Armament: ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System external pod, either antiradar or air-to-surface missiles
Description: White fur, gold eyes, 6'1", medium build
Personality: Calm, relaxed, tolerable, sometimes aloof
Brief History: Anders had a long service record in piloting, mainly in electronic warfare planes, which earned him a respected place in Ebony Squadron. No one knows where he came from.


Name: Freddy O'Harra
Call Sign: Copperhead 2
Species: Badger
Gender: Male
Occupation: Electronic warfare specialist
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: Smith & Wesson revolver, Uzi sub-machine gun
Vehicle: EA-6B Intruder scout plane
Armament: ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System external pod, up to 4 of either antiradar or air-to-surface missiles
Description: Typical badger fur color & pattern, dark brown eyes, 5'10", paunchy build
Personality: Gambler, likes to bet, and tends to complain
Brief History: Freddy worked in the British Royal Air Force but already his service was tarnished for running gambling operations on base. Dishonorably discharged, he weaseled his way into the world of mercenaries, and found himself in Ebony Squadron, thinking he had a sure-fire way of being richer than ever before.


Name: Colt
Call Sign: Hawk
Species: Human
Gender: Male
Occupation: Radar operator, navigator, & electronic warfare specialist
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: Walther PPK handgun, M24 sniper rifle
Vehicle: EA-6B Intruder scout plane
Armament: ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System external pod, up to 4 of either antiradar or air-to-surface missiles
Description: Caucasian, white hair, silver eyes, 5'10", light build, bleeds dark green
Personality: Rarely talks, not really sociable
Brief History: Nothing his known about Colt before his arrival at Ebony Squadron, supposedly being chosen at the time the Squadron was founded. Only amongst the commanders and his teammates, talks suggest he was part of an experimental program that caused the unusual coloration of his hair, eyes, and blood.


Name: Derek Monahan
Call Sign: Copperhead 3
Species: Coyote
Gender: Male
Occupation: Co-pilot
Faction: Ebony Squadron
Weapons/Equipment: Beretta handgun
Vehicle: EA-6B Intruder scout plane
Armament: ALQ-99 Tactical Jamming System external pod, up to 4 of either antiradar or air-to-surface missiles
Description: Typical coyote fur color & pattern, yellow eyes, 5'11", medium-light build
Personality: Eager to be part of the team, but is too reluctant to take control of a plane
Brief History: His personality reflects on his past as part of the USAF as a pilot. Confidential reports claim him responsible for several deaths following an accident in training, including a trusted friend and fellow pilot. Since then, even when brought into Ebony Squadron, he tries never to touch the controls of any plane he's in.

Later on, Starfall, you'll need to describe Area 88 in detail to make it fit here.

Of course.
Area 88 is an elite paramilitary/antiterrorist group, made up mostly of mercenaries or former soldiers. An extremely secretive organization, most countries are unaware of their existance, and the few that do can't actively contact them until they send a representative to the leader with an offer of assistance. In reality, the entire unit is housed on a fleet of advanced aircraft carriers, which are refuled and resupplied in an undisclosed location.
All pilots are allowed to fly and own as many planes as they can maintain, and all pilots are given a salary based on numbers of downed enemies during each mission. Perhaps atypical of many paramilitary units, pilots are also allowed to use the money they earn to buy their way out of the service.
Ranking system is based on the number of enemies shot down by a pilot over their service.
Rookie: 0 down
Cadet: 1-5 down
Elite: 5-10 down
Ace: 10-15 down
Ace of Aces: 15+ down

OK then. Just wanted to see if it would have any relations with Ebony Squadron, which it shouldn't. Was your character once a part of Area 88 or still is?

And isn't Area 88 also a manga?

Back to the plot, and I'm thinking it out as I'm going along:

A government from a country calls Ebony Squadron, concerning the kidnapping of their president and his family by militants/terrorists, and taken to a tyrant country that refuses to release them, and is secretly bargaining with another enemy nation that wants the president executed publicly. So Ebony Squadron takes the job, but the government places some political officers to oversee the rescue and "take charge" if they wish to. Then, the Squadron gets word that some freedom fighters in the tyrant country wants them to help overthrow the tyrant himself, but the political officers will have none of it and accuse the freedom fighters as terrorists. The Ebony Squadron will most surely face the militants/terrorists, two enemy nations, and maybe a mercenary faction paid by the tyrant to protect his regime...

How's that for starters?

I actually have one more good RP idea, but I'm not really optimistic with any chance of anyone wanting to join.

LONG overdue bump.

I've been thinking of giving this idea a revamp. I might put more structure to the merc group, which could give more spots for characters. And I'm putting down a long list of various plots to pick at random, to give many possibilities.
