Born in 2145, Roland Calvert hails from Wessex, England. He attended Oxford Medical School and soon after finishing took a lucrative position from Sirta Foundation.
After working with Sirta for many years, Roland left under unspecified circumstances and seemingly fell off the grid for a time. He resurfaced in 2183, taking a position from Elanus Risk Control as a consultant.
He has recently entered into active duty as part of Elanus’ elite security and troubleshooting personnel.
Roland has the following equipment:
Omni-Tool with x2 Medi-Gel Capacity upgrades
Roland also has a series of genetic augmentations he designed himself.
Eyes – Telescopic/Micro Sight
Roland’s eyes are capable of magnifying images up to x10. It also offers a +1 DM for aiming without the need for separate weapon-mounted sights.
Ears – Enhanced Hearing
Equivalent to the hearing of a terran canine. Sensitivity is in the 40 to 60,000hz range with hearing capable of detecting ultrasonic frequencies unavailable to normal human hearing.
Mouth/Throat – Enhanced Taste
Roland’s sense of taste has been augmented. Individual flavours can be sampled to an intense degree – satisfying demanding gourmets – and Roland can calibrate his tastes to appreciate and enjoy flavours previously unpalatable to him, including exotic, alien foods. This does not enable him to digest or otherwise derive nourishment from substances that are not normally such for a human.
Nose – Enhanced Olfactory Sensation
Scents normally undetectable to humans are placed within olfactory range with even extremely small quantities of aromatics detectable, whether airborne or in a fixed location. Aromatics that may seem to have a very similar smell to normal humans can be differentiated easily by Roland.
The benefits this confers are as follows:
- Rolls used for detecting hidden persons or things by sense of smell gain plus 2 DM.
- Scents and scent trails can be memorised and detected for up to 1D6 plus 1 hours later.
Nose – Particle Analysis
As well as the benefits of olfactory enhancement, described earlier, the olfactory apparatus is capable of undertaking detailed particle analysis whether the particles are airborne or placed into the nostrils. Roland can identify chemical composition, malignant/benign compounds and even differentiate between different species’ aromatics. This confers a +1 DM to all Physical Sciences (Chemistry) rolls when analysing substances nasally.
Lungs – Respirator, Filter, and Automatic Gill
Roland’s lungs have been augmented to act as if he has a Respirator, Filter, and Automatic Gill, as per page 97 of the Traveller Core Rulebook.
Characteristic Upgrade: +1 Social Standing (This is already factored into Roland’s characteristics above)
