“Now hiring Epilogue, a struggling author turned millionaire mercenary.”
Quote: “You can run, you can hide, but the last thing you’ll see will always be me.”
Full Name: Jacques Laferrière
POB: Port-au-Prince, Haiti
DOB: September 21, 1984
Origins: Born in the capital of Haiti, Jacques and his family lived in poverty for most of his youth. They eventually managed to scrounge enough money together using a grant from Jacques’s twin sister, Gabrielle, an engineering prodigy, to move to the USA where they settled in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They both ended up attending the University of Miami, but while Gabrielle excelled in their Mechanical Engineering program, Jacques struggled in his Journalism degree and eventually dropped out due to their “constraining expectations and rules.” His resistance to authority and social norms prompted him to start writing the way he wanted to. He churned out teen angst-esque sci-fi stories, comedic and satirical takes on the US’s norms (according to himself), and autobiographical memoirs. However, these books never took off, leaving Jacques in poverty once again. Meanwhile, his sister had graduated with her Masters degrees in Mechanical Engineering, and had began working at multiple tech units. Jacques’s parents had finally reached economic stability, and his sister was excelling in her life with her developments in aiding in counter-terrorism with her unique tracking technology. All the while, Jacques was descending into poverty and purposelessness. With the Dirty Bomb incident happening recently, Jacques did the only thing he thought he could do: Use his natural athleticism, and steal his sister’s tracking technology to become a mercenary. Though his sister was not too happy with her brother stealing her patented technology and using it for his own personal gains rather than counter-terrorism and militarism , Jacques lost no sleep over it. He had money, power, and stability. Furthermore, his writing career had rebounded with tales of his experiences and missions as a mercenary in irradiated London.
The R.E.A.D.: The Retinal Evaluation of Activity Device is a device that is integrated into Epilogue’s goggles that can track enemies. This is done by the R.E.A.D. scanning an enemy’s last known location within a certain amount of time, and then emitting a pulse from that merc’s current location that spots all the other mercs within that pulse’s radius. To do this, Epilogue activates one of the two charges that it has stored up (each on a 10 second cooldown, no cooldowns in between). The charge scans a decently sized area on the floor, and indicates to Epilogue a ping on his HUD if an enemy merc was in that area 5 seconds ago or less. Should he choose to activate that ping, the merc that that ping belonged to will then emit a pulse spanning about twice as big as Aura’s healing radius, detecting all the enemy mercs within that radius for 10 seconds, as well as outlining the merc that was tracked by Epilogue originally in red for those 10 seconds as well, but only for Epilogue. If you play Rainbow Six: Siege and know how the operator Jackal works, this is basically Jackal and Lion mixed together sort of. If you don’t, well I hope this wasn’t too confusing.

I can see this guy being broken, garbage, out-of-place, I don’t really know how he would work out. I honestly just wanted to get this idea out and see what you guys think of it.
Spare no expense, if he’s overpowered or underpowered let me know!
