WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS WITH THIS CHARACTER IN GAME? Farrier will interact with his other canon-mates as well as other characters on the canvas. He is a flight instructor, who also flies charter jets. There are a lot of options for interaction with him. OOC - I have no record of dropping characters quickly at all. Mine have all been here more than 2 years.
The Battle of Dunkirk was a military operation that took place in Dunkirk (Dunkerque), France, during the Second World War. The battle was fought between the Allies and Nazi Germany. As part of the Battle of France on the Western Front, the Battle of Dunkirk was the defense and evacuation to Britain of British and other Allied forces in Europe from 26 May to 4 June 1940. (From Wiki)
Nathan Farrier is a pilot from the British Royal Air Force in WWII. He is sent on a mission to Dunkirk to aid in the rescue of the trapped French and British soldiers that have been surrounded. After the leader is shot down, Farrier assumes command of the air defense. During the dogfight, his fuel gauge is damaged. He knows he will run out soon, but is determined to help the soldiers in need. After several passes in his Spitfire, he also loses the only other spitfire pilot, Collins, who is picked up by a rescue ship.
Farrier knows that his fuel will eventually run out, but he is determined to distract the bombers as much as possible, taking out several, saving many in the process. The soldiers cheer him as he finally passes, realizing that he has been there with them all along. Eventually, his fuel runs out, and he is forced to land, sailing on the beach after his engine stalls. Once he lands, he sets the plane on fire to avoid capture. The enemy catches up to him and takes him as a prisoner of war.
IN GAME HISTORY: Nathan Farrier was born to Eric and Janice Farrier in Lancaster, California. His father was an air force pilot, assigned to the Edwards Air Force Base. He has a younger brother and sister, Landon and Madison. Together, they had a normal family life, at least as far as military families go. He learned early that he also wanted to join the military and go as far as it would take him.
Nathan fell in love with aviation, memorized everything he could find about historic planes both warcraft and commercial. His father took him to museums and air shows. He learned to fly in high school, joining the Young Eagles aviation club, in addition to football. There were no limits to what Nathan could accomplish, but his dreams were always interlaced with the 'adventure' that the military seemed to promise. At 18, following his graduation, he signed his contract with the US Army, determined to go to ranger school. He didn't want to just fly, he wanted to jump out of the aircraft.
While in the Army, Nathan worked tirelessly in the gym to prepare himself to accomplish his goals. He took them on, one after the other, from basic training, to AIT, to jump school, and then finally to Ranger training. The young man had what it took, complete with a driven personality to match the lofty goals he set for himself. He was 23 when the Ranger Bar was pinned to his uniform, and it was the proudest moment of his life. He served with the 75th Airborne Ranger Division out of Fort Benning during the war on terror in the Middle East. On his fifth trip into Afghanistan, 10 years into his military career, his unit hit a roadside bomb after being picked up from the drop zone. Nathan Farrier took a steel bar of the vehicle through his knee, ending his military career. Although he received a Purple Heart for his actions, his dreams were shattered.
Following the injury, Nathan was flown to a rehab hospital in San Diego, walking out on his own power four months later. He was lucky to have survived, although he was quite a different man. The physical damage had taken it's toll on him mentally. It would be the next year before he decided that he could still do something with himself, and to gather the ambition he once had to get back on his feet. He attended commercial flight school in San Diego and took a job with a commuter airline in Los Angeles following completion. Two years in, he was offered a job with a charter airline, giving him a lighter schedule, yet more opportunities to travel the world. On the side, he got his instructor's license and teaches those who dream to fly as well.

I hate early morning flights. If it is so critical to be at a business meeting in Seattle at 8 am, why not leave the night before. Nope, I guess that is not an option, so guess who needs to be at work at 3:30 am, making the final checks for takeoff at 5 am? That would be me.
I also love to fly, especially watching the sun rise and set from the air. Give me a gallon of coffee, and sign me up.
I have to say though, good luck making that meeting. I can be on the ground by 7:30am, but traffic is a whole can of worms I'm not going to open.
