Name: Bran Sean Tierney
Character Description: Bran Sean Tierney is a young, ambitious Company Agent in his late twenties. For him, the final frontier is more than just an expanse of stars—it’s a vast playing field of opportunities waiting to be exploited. Whether it’s insider information, uncharted mineral deposits, or an unknown life-form, his eyes are set on finding the next big thing for the company, hoping it will launch him up the corporate ladder. Interpersonal relationships take a backseat for Bran; for him, people are simply commodities to capitalize on. His primary focus? The company’s bottom line.
Bran is more than just an ambitious young executive—he is an emblem of corporate ruthlessness in the world of Weyland-Yutani. As a high-ranking figure involved in the development of suspected bio-weapons, he walks a dangerous path devoid of moral and ethical boundaries. His relentlessness in the pursuit of power and profit is a stark reminder of the peril that corporations can pose.
With his highest attribute being wits, Bran embodies strategic cunning and intellectual prowess. His physical strength, empathy, and agility are balanced, reflecting his practical and rational approach to life. Bran’s skills lie predominantly in manipulation and observation, reflecting his proficiency in using people and situations to his advantage. He’s also skilled in Comtech and Mobility, enhancing his versatility in different scenarios.
Bran’s talent, “Personal Safety,” asserts the idea that the company—and by extension, he himself—always comes first. His own safety is paramount, even if it means sacrificing others. If attacked or faced with mortal danger, Bran can manipulate the situation so that another character bears the brunt of the danger instead. However, using this talent also increases his stress level.
Visually, Bran exudes an air of opulence and arrogance. He sports an expensive Rolex, a monogrammed silk tie, and carries an air of pomposity. His emotionless stare paints the picture of a man desensitized to the corporate world’s harsh realities. His signature item is a gold pen, a gift from his younger sister who admired his career success. The pen serves as a sentimental keepsake that reminds him of his beloved sister.
Bran’s personal agenda is as daunting as his personality—to return an alien specimen to the company. He carries a data transmitter card with corporate clearance level, alongside $600 in cash. An enigma wrapped in an expensive suit; Bran Sean Tierney is a character that embodies the chilling reality of corporate greed in the farthest reaches of space.
