Section 3: General Information

A. Personal History

The only son to grace the household of Henry and Christine Eberhardt, Kelly is the youngest of their five children by a good fifteen years. Despite often suspecting that his parents were perhaps a little too resigned to the idea of having yet another girl, his first name actually comes from his maternal grandfather who passed away not long before he was born. Growing up in Alaska, and the picturesque tourist neck of the woods to boot, it’s probably not too surprising that Kelly was your stereotypical outdoorsy kid, a trait his aging parents actively encouraged, if only to give themselves a fleeting moment of peace.

While academically gifted, his love of the outdoors tended to have a knock on effect on his attendance, which in turn kept restricted his overall grades from reaching the heights they would have ordinarily. As he entered into his teens this truancy problem only seemed to grow worse, making it a small miracle that he managed to graduate with vaguely acceptable, if modest, GPA. Almost directly after graduation, Kelly opted to forgo the college experience in favour of enlisting in the US Army, a move partially attributed to a combination of the US Embassy attacks earlier in the year and the simple fact he couldn’t face another four years in a classroom.

Put through Healthcare Specialist (or combat medic training) after basic, Kelly would also complete Special Operations Combat Medic (SOCM) course in order join the 75th Ranger Regiment as a Ranger medic. The next two years that followed were relatively quiet, filled mainly with training exercises and additional courses, earning him a few more badges and the ranger tab in the process. Despite that, however, he was still green around the edges when Afghanistan rolled around, trained but wholly untested in an actual combat environment. That didn’t last long. Starting with Operation Rhino, it wasn’t long before Kelly was in the thick of things, with the missions coming in rapid succession in the days that followed.

He managed to make a modest name for himself during that first real deployment, however. One that earned him an invite to join the Special Forces selection and training process, an offer Kelly couldn’t rightly turn down. Passing through the gruelling month and half process, largely because he was too stubborn to know hewn to quit, he soldiered on through the intensive twenty three months that followed, bolstering his resume with advanced SERE tactics and language skills to name but a few. Training to become a Medical Sergeant was merely the natural progression at that point, picking up more advanced trauma and surgical techniques.

Several more tours of Iraq and Afghanistan followed, so tightly packed that Kelly was spending more time in the Middle East than he was stateside, often operating for extended tours beyond friendly lines, liaising and training the local populace. What little downtime he had was that in name only, usually spent working in civilian emergency centres or taking advantage of the open service training options, both to further hone his skills and to avoid the awkward readjustment to civilian life as much as possible.

In late 2007, Kelly was once more approached with an offer he couldn’t refuse, being tapped to undertake the selection process for the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta. From the initial two hundred or so candidates, all drawn from various us military branches, Kelly somehow managed to scrape through to become one of the handful inducted into the outfit. His dedication was rewarded with yet another set of all expense paid trips to Afghanistan, courtesy of Uncle Sam.

Kelly was read into the Stargate programme roughly two years ago, his service record and past experience with training local populations making him an ideal candidate for a joint initiative between the SGC and the Free Jaffa.

B. General Personality

i. Character Strengths:
Kelly is a very level headed and dependable soldier, capable of traversing the precariously thin line that separates confidence from arrogance without too many pitfalls along the way. He possesses a great deal of determination towards both aspects of his career, pushing himself to excel to the best of his abilities in either arena, having no room in his mind for coming second place. A far cry from a genius, Kelly still has a keen intellect in his own right, excelling at creative problem solving.

ii. Character Weaknesses:
Rather frank with his opinions, Kelly isn't known for pulling his punches, speaking his mind with a blunt, straightforward honesty that can occasionally be taken the wrong way. He isn't as open when it comes to his own personal problems, however, having a tendency to push people away and alienate them whilst he tries to tackle the issue on his own. And then there's the fact his desire to excel can also enter into the realm of over competitiveness when not kept in check, likewise damaging his personal relationships as well as causing him to spread himself thin at times.
iii. Personal attitude and demeanour:
Quick with a smile and a flippant remark, Kelly is the type of person that appears naturally at ease with his lot in life, with not even the harsh realities of combat seeming to get him down for too long. A self-confessed workaholic, he's quick to volunteer for extra assignments or tasks, attempting to pack his day with as much activity as possible. Perhaps with good reason, as it’s when things are quiet and sedate that the collective wear and tear of the last decade and a half starts to shine through. The easy smile mask develops a few cracks during these moments, his jokes become less good natured and more critical in disposition, both towards himself and those around him. While fortunately these 'dark' moments are few and far between, they generally tend to last a few days before he manages to find his way back to his normal self.

C. Additional Information

Ancient gene: Negative

RP Sample (in character):
Without even the slightest whisper of a breeze to offer respite, the midday air was quickly becoming thick and heavy as the second sun began its laborious ascent through the perpetually cloudless sky. Having spent more tours than he cared to remember in one godforsaken desert or another, Kelly would’ve thought he’d built up a level of immunity to oppressive heat. It had taken PT4-284 less than two hours to dispel him of that foolish notion. Already he could feel trickles of perspiration pooling in the small of his back, to say nothing of his sweat covered brow, prompting the appearance of a faint frown and a shifting of the Keffiyeh around his neck.
Of course, some of the frown might have been for the dark shape forming on the horizon, a wedge of movement distorted by the silvery heat haze. A little too purposeful to be one of the local herds they’d milling less than a stone’s throw away from the gate. Despite appearing like the lovechild of Jim Henson and Ridley Scott, the hairy lizard-like cows seemed a little too oblivious and docile to move with that much coordinated precision.

“Emerson, Eberhardt.” Kelly chimed softly as he popped a knee, drawing a bead on the shape with the scope of his rifle. Judging from the muffled swearing and wisp of fabric behind him, Williams was attempting to copy the move, the swearing only intensifying as the geologist made a fumbled grab for his sidearm. As if it would do any good at this range. Ordinarily Kelly would’ve made a witty remark and tried to ease the man’s tensions a little, but right now it seemed they had bigger issues to contend with than a case of the jitters. Still a way off from giving him a clear enough visual to be certain, he had seen enough mobs to know what was bearing down on them. “I have eyes on an undetermined number of foot mobiles converging on our vector. I’d say we’d attracted something of a welcoming committee, but it seems awfully like an awfully large amount of foot traffic just to roll out some red carpet.”

There was a slight, pregnant pause before the radio crackled into life with a response, the major’s rough tones magnified by the interference caused by the residual metals in the cave system that spider webbed out beneath their feet. The same metals that had prompted this little excursion in the first place. “Copy that, Sergeant. Estimated ETA?”

“At the rate they’re moving…” He paused, assessing the distance between his position and the crowd. With the second sun throwing a curveball with the haze, and with very little in the way of natural landmarks in the arid plains, it was hard to give an accurate estimate of just how fast they were moving, but if experience had taught him anything over the last sixteen or so years, it was always better to err on the side of caution when facing numbers large enough to fill a sizeable chunk of the horizon. “I’d say maybe fifteen to twenty mikes, less if they’re feeling particularly motivated. I’m not seeing anything to say they’re anything but.”

“Understood. We’ll wrap things up here and fall back to team two at the gate. Recommend you do likewise.”

Kelly glanced over his shoulder, shifting from the stricken looking Williams, no doubt worrying more about having enough time to collect all of his equipment than the intentions of the approaching horde, to the more stalwart figure of Stonewater behind him, receiving a curt nod from the taciturn corporal. “I hear that. We’ll be oscar mike as soon as we get Williams squared away.”

Letting his hand fall from the radio, he cast the first grin in several hours towards the civilian in question. “Unless you’re willing to stick around and ask them to help carry it for you, I’d spare some thought to ditching anything not mission critical. Stonewater, keep an eye on our friends over there while I help the good doctor figure out what exactly mission critical means.”

Hi Rossi

I'll apologise now for the delay in reading through your app, I've barely been at a computer for a few days. I'll be able to read it properly after work and chat to Warlord about it as well. I promise we'll review it as soon as possible.
