OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION

COMBAT INFORMATION

  • Availability: Unique
  • Deployment: Limited
  • Strengths Weaknesses: 
    • Tight Knit: As a group of soldiers, officers, and agents that were picked out by Zeph on this team, and were then trained from day one to work together to work through just about any situation, As a group, this task force is well correlated, and will get the job done. 
    • Top Gun: Trained in flying ships, All are current Mandalorians, as well as battlefield tactics, various weaponry, martial arts, slicing, espionage, and other such, these guys are one of the, if not the best force that the CIS may have at their disposal. 
    • Droid Allies: Using a combination of Pred-X droids and Spider Slicing droids, they can greatly increase the ability to tract down fugitives, assassination targets, Bounties, or other such. The Spider droids also aid in slicing and stealth like missions. Otherwise, everyone else on the team is a sentient being. The total droid units are 18. (12 Pred-X and 6 Spiders)
    • Loyalty till Death: These men and women are dedicated to the CIS cause, Mandalorian cause(specifically Carrick and Verd Families) as well as their leader Zephyr, they would die for one another, for king and country. 
    • No Cavalry: Darkstar is a group that goes alone. They number 7 people including Zephyr. One Dedicated pilot, five operatives, and Zephyr. That's all they have. No support, no extra men to call in when sick. This limits their usage to strategic encounters, Operations, missions, or other like minded pursuits. Full scale battle is possible, but will be limited due to there smaller manned size. 
    • Erased: Each of these operatives have left behind their old lives. They no longer exist in the eyes of the Confederacy as a whole. Rumors spread and speak of them and their exclusivity, but the only known member of the task force is Zephyr himself. All the others, if they were to perish, were already considered dead. They get no medals. No special merits. No special ranks. This is their one job till the day they die, or are unfit for duty. 
    • Never the Same: Should one of the members die, As their existence is erased from the CIS files, their callsign is given to them predetermined. Should they perish, their callsign will be passed onto the new addition when they have been replaced. Creating the air of mystery that, that particular operative never died. Further adding to their almost exiled state, as they are considered barely anything above servants to the CIS and their Jobs. 
    • Difficult Replacement: As the process for hand picking these operatives takes time, training, and the willingness of those who are offered the position to be in the Darkstar, should an agent go down, or be removed from duty, it will take quite some time to replace them. 

DESCRIPTION: 

Operation Darkstar. Commonly referred to as Obsidian Ops, or in the abbreviated form of Oops, is a small task force composed of seven individuals. Hand picked by Zephyr, these operatives, specialists, officers, or straight up soldiers who have shown, or have records of superb skills in their field, are put into this squad. 

 

Entering process is known very limited, but what is known is that anyone on the team is a "Ghost." Their lives have been forgotten, and their record is already claiming them as KIA, or MIA. Their families are informed of their deaths, they are even given proper burials to sell the bit. Yet, these men and women are still alive, and kicking. 

 

Any form of identification is removed. Fingerprints are burned off and removed, with their teeth and any previous record being removed, or realigned so that one could not tell that the person is still alive. This is to prevent any hostile action taken against their family, as well as to prevent their loss of life to be considered. Should they perish, they were already dead to begin with. However, should their time prove useful and retire, or were to subsequently be removed from their position being deemed unfit for battle, they are then given new names, new backgrounds, and allowed to live out the rest of their lives. They are allowed to pursue their previous life should they choose to do so if they were claimed MIA. Being found or rescued from hostile territory. 

 

Until that time, they work and function as operatives of the Darkstar operation. Improving upon their already sought after skills, they are taught to fly, drive, act as a unit, train until their body is completely broken, so that when they are on the mend, and remade into soldiers and warriors that will not break under pressure, soldiers that will not speak if captured, and accept their death should it come for them. They are loyal to the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and to their current leader, Zephyr Carrick. 

 

The only public information of the task force, other than the rumors fabricated from the imagination of those who have heard of it, or planted into the ears of many by those who set up this program, is that Zephyr Carrick is the lead operative upon this force. Any operative who's cover is blown, will be returned to civilian life under a protected order, or subsequently placed back into standard military rotation. 

 

Using an extensive list of weaponry, armor, gear, vehicles, and ships, The Darkstar operatives are given full reign of their tasks set before them. Answering exclusively to Zeph, and the Dread Lord himself. 

 

The small task force is lethal, but strategically placed in scenarios that other task forces would not be able to complete, or be considered suicide missions. Once placed on the job set before them, its is not a question of if, but when and how the mission will be completed. Working as a team, it would be very difficult for them to be defeated. 

 

However, the small task force is great for smaller operations. Large scale battle is possible, and can be done, and will be done, but their area of expertise is small time missions, or working in the background to pull the strings. Given command over two particular droid types, and used for various reasons across the board, This task for is one of, if not the best that the CIS has to offer.

 

Should you see them coming for you, run away. You will only die tired.

Over all this is a nicely put together sub. Just one minor thing and then one not so minor thing:

 

Affiliation: Zephyr Carrick

If I can have you link to your character bio here that would be excellent. 

 

Now to the more in depth thing. You have a full list of equipment. Some of it you link to the market place post where you buy them (awesome). Some are Mass Market (also awesome) and/or affiliated with CIS (awesome).

 

Some of them however are closed market and not affiliated with CIS. While a bunch of them are made by CIS's FO, or affiliated with the Mandos (of whom the faction FO is a part of) that doesn't actually equal them being open market/CIS affiliated. I need you to get the permissions to use those like you did with Jaeger and Locke/Key or pick something else to use in their place.

Irajah Ven, Firstly thank you for judging my submission and the kind words. 

 

Secondly, Edited the link for my character in the listing of Affiliations. 

 

However, I have one problem, the writer who owns the company has not been on the site since January of this year. As I cannot get approval directly from the writer as I have no other forms of communications with this person, I would like to propose some questions.

 

1, Since the weapons were created for the Mandalorian Crusaders, could I potentially acquire them by going back to the old space of influence that the Mandalorian crusaders had and retrieving these weapons in a thread? As this would be Zeph and the team going back to their roots and getting some of the old weapons from an abandoned warehouse? 

2, If I cannot do the first option, Is there some other way that I could potentially gain them that would not be considered circumnavigating the rules that you guys have to abide by? 

3, If that is no, then I shall remove/replace them. 

 

Once again, thank you for your time, and I am sorry for the complications.

Unfortunately, without writer approval, if the content isn't open market, it can't be used. You can't salvage existing products because it still falls under the 'without permission' part on subs specifically made with limiting which characters can use them by the original poster. 

 

If you are *heartset* on using those particular specs, you can do a reverse engineering mission and then sub your own. 

 

Alternatively you can choose other things that are Open-Market/CIS affiliate/or with an active storefront to purchase from.

Irajah Ven, I have removed them for now. I will likely reverse engineer, or just make something to fill those spots later. 

 

Once more, than you for your help and understanding.

Thank you for removing the ones you did but that wasn't all of them. 

 

Things like this and this (there might be more, I stopped when I realized these were still there)- while yes they are made by your factions FO, they are still listed as closed market, rather than Open and/or CIS, or even clan Verd. You still need to purchase those as you would if they weren't made by the faction's FO- which I am sure will not be an issue if you poke him about it. But they are closed market, or associated with other factions, and unfortunately follow the same rules despite the OOC creator.

Only thing I'm going to need you to remove from the equipment list is the Warhawk, as the affiliation is set to the Mandalorian Crusaders major faction rather than private market.
