Janno: a born Estonian with a German mother. Spent most of his time with the Russian military. Likes to cook for friends and enjoys the good life. But is top fit, a bear of a man, prefers heavy weapons. Locks are no problem and no obstacle.
Prefers to work together with fellow Estonian Vilde, who he met while stationed in East Germany.
A bear of a man, Grizzly Bornell carries the big guns of battle with authority. Even though heavy weapons are his specialty, he is just as lethal when left empty-handed. He's a soldier's soldier--all guts and no need for glory. Not surprisingly, his combat exploits are almost always the talk of the plane ride home.
Big, burly, a bear of a man.
His toughness is to such an extent it borders on comical. It's understated. No need for kickass statements, it's just understood.
Friendly, and without pretence, he's the type of guy you'd want next to you in combat.
This full Pro is a former member of the GDR Folks army and comes from an old Prussian family. After the reunification of Germany, Henning began an extremely successful career as a merc.

He has something against New Age, which is why he gets allergic attacks when he has to work together with Thor

Promising a changed attitude, he was returned to active duty by A.I.M. though because he is so proficient with both firearms and explosives. Fidel hasn't quite been himself lately.
Aggressive, slightly psychotic.
Has a comical ruthlessness to him. Conveyed by a short, heavy, Cuban accent.
Usually mad about something, shows hints of a softer side but even that is tainted.
Extremely impatient. Type of guy that would force a square into a circle while blaming the square for his frustration.
Fresh out of med school, Doctor Dawson eagerly awaits his first assignment. Although his innocent and youthful appearance has prevented others from taking him seriously but rest assured, once he saves a couple of lives, he'll be shown the kind of respect he deserves.

Young, inexperienced, a little chattier than most of the others.
Uses some scientific terminology.
Enthusiastic and somewhat brash.
Surprises himself on occasion as he feels his way through combat.
Following in his uncle's footsteps won't be easy for Igor. His uncle Ivan Dolvich is legendary. Igor may be new to A.I.M. but he is by no means new to armed combat--he developed his abilities for stealth while in action in Chechnya.

Struggles for words in English, tends to fall into Russian during tense moments.
Very direct and unemotional.

Then he discovered someone having a go at his little sister and in his rage, broke the persons neck: an accident. The victim was unfortunately a VIP and therefore Luc had go underground by the mercenaries.
This muscleman is a weapon on legs. Close combat would be enough for him, but with automatic weapons he is unbeatable!

She is extremely conscious of her looks and uses it to her advantage.
Voice is extremely sexy, with a hint of sweetness.
Former L.A.P.D. SWAT team sharpshooter, Sgt. Charlene Higgens left the force for A.I.M. so she could work alongside her husband, Ron Higgens. They prefer to take assignments together since operate with the precision of a solitary unit. If you listen to them though, you'd never realize they're married; they rarely acknowledge their personal lives during work. Raven is qualified in night operations.
A female version of her husband. They belong together.
Lt. Ron Higgens is a former commander of the Los Angeles SWAT team. When he fell in love with his ace sniper, Sgt. Charlene Higgens, they managed to keep their relationship a secret up until a year ago.

Well-rounded, doesn't really have any quirks. A closed personality.
Thinks before he speaks. Exhibits a disbelief about the creatures. Refers to them as shrimp
Doctor Huaong draws much of his medical knowledge from the branches of the ancient healing traditions.

Spiritual and somewhat mystical
Formal use of English, though he's well-versed enough to use contractions
He's comes off as being respectful, yet he sometimes uses it as a guise to make snide remarks.
His dialogue is littered with spiritual connotations.
Military trained in the treatment of trauma, Doctor Houston is unequalled in giving medical aid under the most adverse conditions. On the darkest nights or during the fiercest tropical storms, the wounded can count on Spider to provide quick, quiet, and effective emergency care. Don't let the nickname fool you. She got it from her fear of spiders and not from a prickly personality.
Friendly, scientific and analytical.
Athletic, slightly tomboyish, spent her childhood hanging out with boys.
Finds no pleasure in killing, would rather just play doctor.
Most probably became a merc for the challenge of field treatment.
Don't mess with Meltdown. She may be smiling in her file photo, but that smile is certainly deceptive. This mercenary is legendary; an enemy once died at her feet from fear before Meltdown had even raised her weapon. As for her taste in weapons, the bigger, the better. In fact, Meltdown has a tendency for overkill in virtually every aspect of her life. Jessop is remarkably ambidextrous; she can easily fire two weapons simultaneously.
Foul-mouthed, kickass woman, who could clear a bar in no time.
This vegetarian New Age healer has an amazing grasp of medicine for a man who's never seen the inside of a university med school. He also has a decent grasp for killing quickly and quietly.

An easy-going new age, professional killer with scientific terminology in his dialogue
Switches to German expressions when the situation is tense.
He switches between the direct rigidity of his upbringing and his new found inner-tranquillity.
The Russian born Victor Kolesnikov is exactly who would be called a Hard case. Automatic weapons are his area of skill.

He has a problem with his fellow Russian Ivan.
Because of his experiences in Tschetschenia he is choosy about his clientsRussian
Whether it's sharing a spot of tea with British blue-bloods or putting a .38 slug into an unwanted nuisance, Sidney does it with poise and dignity. Sidney combines the mannerisms of the upper crust with the lighting quickness of a Wild West gunslinger. Years of avid cricket-playing have also given him a much-feared throwing arm.
Snob, prim and proper.
No matter what the situation, he never loses his dignity.
He's a massive man of very few words. John Peters prefers to let his actions speak for him. Despite his experience as a U.S. Army MP, he has a concerted lack of respect for authority and angers easily. He probably spent as much time IN the brig as he did guarding it. Bull is the type of soldier who puts the grunt back into grunt work. Bull packs more power in his punch than anyone else currently on our roster.
Mean, intolerant, aggressive.
Says as few words as possible.
Gets through any situation thrown at him with brute force.
Sarcastic bar-brawler, rather than out-and-out cruel.
Doctor David Quinten is a mountaineer, skydiver, and mobile medical practitioner. During Operation Desert Storm, he developed a reputation for jumping out of helicopters to operate on wounded soldiers that were lying out in the middle of sandy mine fields.

An intellectual, who gets into combat for the pure adventure.
Type of guy that can't stand still when stuff is going on around him.

A handsome pretty boy, who's starting to age.
Slightly flippant, yet cautious as he goes about his business.
Otherwise known as The Assassin, if you come face-to-face with Carl Sheppards, chances are you're on your last breath. The Reaper takes pride in his patience. He strides silently and uses his stealth skills to gain easy access to his victims. Carl also gets a kick out of looking them in
the eye just before they die. One of his former CO's described him as "potentially too dangerous even for A.I.M. service."
A loner, though not anti-social.
Sees death and killing as something spiritual.
Carries himself as if living on another plane of existence.
This ex-Ranger and sniper has turned stalking into an art form. The Shadow could be lurking about right next to you and chances are you'd never know it.

The Shadow brings his own camouflage supplies and he wishes to make it known up-front that he doesn't share.
Quiet, loner, low-key professional.
Comments are usually made to himself rather than as conversation.
Matter of fact type of guy, who doesn't draw attention to himself.

Edgar Smorth traded in his bike, leathers, and vest to become a full-time A.I.M. mercenary. In the year he's been with the organization, Nails has taken advantage of his knowledge about car bombs to become a military explosives expert. Despite his career change, he hasn't lost his combative edge or substantial belly he developed as a renegade biker. Edgar has a knack for getting into inaccessible places, just as long as they aren't too small and narrow.
The prim and proper Monica Sonderguard may seem to be an unlikely candidate for the rough and tumble mercenary life, but she more than meets the minimum requirements. Before settling on A.I.M., Buns explored a number of careers: kindergarten teacher, geriatric nurse, Danish sharpshooter at the Atlanta Olympic games, and professional soldier.
A prim and proper, prude.
Believes herself better than anyone else.
Has a sense of superiority. She's a merc because she wants to, not because she has to.
This mad, mumbling Scotsman is from the old school of explosives where your instructor would fly by in pieces and you quickly moved up the ranks. Spragg is a survivor. With many years of experience under his wire cutters, he takes pride in teaching those military college kids a thing or two about detonation devices. Don't be thrown by Red's frantic ravings; the situation is rarely as dire as he likes to believe.
Easily excitable. Goes off rants. Bit of a hothead
This former GSG 9 man has only one weakness. Dr. Laura Colin, who he met during a special training in Lübeck. He is an absolute Pro, Night operations are his strength. He can also shoot the nuts out of a squirrel's paws from 3 km. Has the talent to become a trainer.
His mode of expression leaves a lot to be desired. Works well with Henning von Branitz, but Gasket is the red cloth in a bullring
The years may go by, but Static barely seems to mature. His experience and laid-back nature allows Kirk to best operate under the cover of darkness. He has served his commanders well with his mechanical abilities and knowledge of electronics. And don't be deceived--although he looks like a hippie, peace and love are the furthest things from his mind. Like his good friend Spider, Static can't stand the sight of insects.

Principled enough to get the job done.
Friendly, easy-going, somewhat focused even when he doesn't sound it.
He and Larry Roachburn use to do a lot of drugs together.

Scully is well-known for his skills with a bladed weapon.
Scully is a super friendly guy. He's been married seven times and has eight kids.
Though British, he has a out-going demeanor and accent that is easily mistaken for Australian
Hungarian-born Unger is part of a new breed of explosive experts. He learned most of his trade the safe way--in a classroom.

Dispassionate and distant, straightforward with his opinions, yet meek.
Religion had a strong part in his upbringing.
Precise and intelligent (would read instructions before attempting anything).
Jean-Pierre may be a little rough around the edges, but he is extremely sharp with a blade-in-hand. He acquired most of his skills while working as the head doorman at a nightclub. Street fighting is definitely one of his strengths. La Malice seems to have found his calling with A.I.M.
though, as he has honed his talents to exquisite perfection.
Len is a leader type, infectious to others. A bit of a joker, with a strange sense of humour. Like Janno Allik he originates from Estonia and has a German mother. Unhappy childhood in Siberia, but made him harder. Night operations and automatic weapons are his greatest strengths.

Despite constant teasing, Vicki insists on using the stairs no matter how tall the building.
Very methodical and determined. No-nonsense.
The easy-going accent, contrasts her forceful dialogue. It also contrasts her mechanical abilities by giving her a sense of sophistication.
The Iceman is back. After a short yet disastrous stint with one of our competitors--and we use that term loosely-Ice gained insight and wisdom on the merits of dealing with a professional organization. Williams owes a debt of gratitude to Magic for getting him reinstated. Ice's patience and friendly demeanor make him an ideal instructor. His choice of weapon is automatic.
Cool, laid-back, patient and friendly.
Never gets overly excited. He's always got it covered.
Lives life for the moment, by the moment.
Conversation has a street corner, rather than combat zone, feel to it.
