    CASTING/SEEKING:

    MARTIN NORTH – LATE 20s TO LATE 40s
    HANDSOME. EDGY. HAS THE CONFIDENCE OF SOMEONE WHO IS VERY GOOD AT DOING SOMETHING VERY DIFFICULT. AND VERY ILLEGAL. MARTIN IS OUR LEAD POV AND HAS ONE OF THE MORE CHALLENGING JOBS IN THE CABAL. HE IS THE ONE WHO MAKES SURE THERE ARE 100 PEOPLE ON THE CARGO PLANE. NOTE – WHILE THE CABAL IS RUN BY SOCIOPATHS, EVERYONE PREFERS THAT THE COMBATANTS ARE VOLUNTEERS. AND THIS IS WHAT MAKES MARTIN’S JOB DIFFICULT; IT WOULD BE SO MUCH EASIER IF THEY COULD JUST KIDNAP SOME VETERANS AND THROW BOMB COLLARS ON THEM. BUT THAT’S NOT HOW THE CABAL ROLLS. AND THUS, MARTIN WORKS YEAR-ROUND WITH RECRUITERS TRYING TO FIND THE “DERANGED & DESPERATE”. HE’S PRETTY DAMN GOOD AT HIS JOB TOO. HE CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE WITH THE TEAM THE NEW RECRUIT HE FOUND IN AN EASTERN EUROPEAN PRISON: THE FORMER MARINE, DUNCAN SLADE

    LEE CHAE YOUNG – MALE OR FEMALE – MID 20s TO LATE 30s – KOREAN
    FLAT AFFECT, NOT INTERESTED IN THIS ARGUMENT. HE/SHE HANDLES LOGISTICS AND STAFFING. IT’S ONE THING TO BUY AN ABANDONED ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF THAILAND, IT’S SOMETHING ELSE ENTIRELY TO ENSURE THAT THE ISLAND HAS POWER, RUNNING WATER, BATHROOMS FOR SUPPORT STAFF MEMBERS, AND A LOCAL POLICE FORCE THAT IS ADEQUATELY BRIBED TO KEEP TOURISTS AND CRIMINALS AWAY. CHAE YOUNG 2 HANDLES IT ALL, AND SHE IS PAID WELL BECAUSE OF IT. OR AT LEAST SHE THOUGHT SHE WAS – SHE JUST FOUND OUT SHE GETS PAID 73 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR COMPARED TO MARTIN AND IS PISSED.

    SUDHIR – MALE – LATE 20s TO LATE 40s – MIDDLE EASTERN OR SOUTH EAST ASIAN
    DARKER COMPLEXION NEEDED. NERVOUS, SWEATING BULLETS CAUSE THE GREYZONE HAS BEEN MISBEHAVING LATELY. IT’S EASY TO FORGET THE EARLY DAYS OF BATTLEGROUNDS. BACK WHEN THEY HAD TO RESTRICT THE GAME ZONE WITH TRAINED DOGS AND MORTARS FIRED FROM ANCHORED SHIPS. THANKFULLY, THEY HAVEN’T HAD TO DEAL WITH THAT SINCE THE INCLUSION OF ADVANCED GREYZONE TECHNOLOGY. SUDHIR LEADS R&D FOR VYTALITY 360, A BIOTECH COMPANY, AND WORKS TO ENSURE THAT COMBATANTS ARE PROPERLY “HERDED” AND THE GAME DOESN’T LAST 9 DAYS

    NELSON – 30s
    GAVE UP STOCK OPTIONS AT INSTAGRAM FOR THIS “JOB”. CURRENTLY FEELING DEFENSIVE AND LOBBING HEAT AT SAMARA. NELSON IS AN INNOVATOR. HE’S A SELF-DESCRIBED “IDEA GUY”. HE WAS THE ONE WHO CAME UP WITH THE GREYZONE LONG BEFORE SUDHIR AND HIS TEAM DEVELOPED THE ACTUAL TECH. HE WORKS ON BRINGING NEW IDEAS AND NEW TECHNOLOGY TO EACH GAME – CASE IN POINT, HE’S WORKING HARD ON AN AI DRIVEN TRUCK WHICH IS STUFFED TO THE BRIM WITH LOOT. WHAT COULD GO WRONG WITH THAT?

    SAMARA – 30s TO 40s – ETHNICALLY MIDDLE EASTERN OR SOUTH EAST ASIAN
    SCHOOLED IN THE UK (BRITISH ACCENT IF POSSIBLE (PLEASE MARK ON YOUR SUBMISSION NOTES) BUT NOT MANDATORY). ANNOYED AT THE MOMENT, AND HONESTLY, ANNOYED IN GENERAL. THIS JOB PAYS WELL BUT IT DOESN’T BREED CONTENTMENT. KNOWS EVERY ARMS DEALER AND WEAPONS MANUFACTURER. CAN TELL YOU THE BRAND OF SNIPER RIFLE BY THE SOUND OF THE REPORT. GETS A LOT OF HEAT FROM THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE TEAM BECAUSE THEY ALL THINK SHE’S GOT THE EASIEST JOB. AND SHE DOES. BUT THE TRUTH IS, THE CABAL AIN’T PAYING MILLIONS TO WATCH A BUNCH OF PRISON INMATES PUNCH EACH OTHER.
