Name: Carter Cleveland Savege
Character Description: Carter Cleveland Savege is a man for whom the limitless sky is the ultimate playground. In his early fifties, he’s an experienced Pilot who thrives on the thrill of conquering the cosmos, effortlessly performing aerospace stunts that would make others balk. Money isn’t his primary driver, but the adrenaline rush of danger certainly is. However, Carter understands the fine line between courage and recklessness, aware that one false move could end his thrill-seeking lifestyle permanently.
Adding complexity to his character is his haunting past as a Hadley’s Hope survivor. Carter managed to escape the harrowing events that led to the annihilation of the colony, an experience that has left him with a deep-seated animosity towards corporations like Weyland-Yutani, whom he blames for the disaster. His firsthand knowledge of such catastrophes provides authenticity to the circulating rumors of bio-weapon development and corporate misdeeds.
Agility is Carter’s strongest attribute, a crucial characteristic for any daredevil pilot. His wits, empathy, and strength are evenly matched, reflecting a well-rounded personality. His skills lie in piloting, ranged combat, Comtech, and observation, with some prowess in handling heavy machinery.
Carter’s talent, “Like the Back of Your Hand,” extends to his beloved starship, a Model CYG-NS3 Star Clipper he affectionately calls “Bessy.” He knows every detail of this ship, allowing him to gain a +2 modification to piloting it.
Physically, Carter is distinctive with steely blue eyes, graying hair, and a constant skeptical look on his face. His ever-present sunglasses and the Ace of Spades playing card in his shirt pocket – a memento from his victorious past as a gambler – are signature items that reflect his unique persona.
Carter’s personal agenda is to always take charge, a trait stemming from his role as the captain of his ship. This desire to lead can lead to conflict with others who might not see him as the best choice for leadership, especially given his inclination to make rapid decisions that may not always yield the best results.
Armed with an M4A3 Service Pistol, a Seegson System Diagnostic Device, and $300 in cash, Carter is ready to face whatever comes his way. Beneath his thrill-seeking exterior, Carter is a good man grappling with a traumatic past, making him an intriguing addition to this universe.
