Bio: Well this one is a real pain in the rear to locate any valid news upon, retired Senator Martin Burlington here is just that man. He is called Figment for he remains a fleeting memory to few and forgotten by many. Well Martin this is where the shill game ends and you are truly unmasked, this man served within the UCAS Senate for countless terms and some say he is still serving from behind the scenes. Senator Burlington retired from the Senate at the end of the 2073 session and would simply return to the private sector to enjoy his retirement from the political world.
Now that is all fine and dandy on paper but in reality this monster would step aside, allow for a hand picked rebel to replace him and hence influence from behind the scenes. The people of Kentucky see a beloved senator sitting on his porch sipping lemonade, all the while he is puppeteering his replacement and having the poor idiot dance around like an idiot. You wounder why nothing gets done in the UCAS Senate…….well this is a huge reason, we have old timers that won’t die clinging onto power, and Senator Burlington will be here for a while seeing his yet another of the blasted Federal Immortality Bastards.
Burlington was born Daytona Beach on April 1st 1879 and would join the Calvary in the summer of 1892 at the ripe old age of thirteen. He would go on to fight in the Spanish American War, First World War, Second World War, Korea, and Vietnam where his run as a useful tool would come to a close. He would be deposited un-ceremonially within a small backwater town in Kentucky and hence the rise of the CEO and a serious problem for the rest of us a century later.
He is an extremely wounded member of this order and having been shot, stabbed, busted bones, fallen from great heights and hit by a cannon he is still bloody here. This man would be injected under his own consent when he was wounded by an outlaws bullet while he patrolled the New Mexico territory and it would be injection or perish and he wasn’t ready to pass on. So come the 1900 presidential change to the FIP regulations Major Burlington here would simply become nothing more and a figment of everyone’s imagination and for this rough rider thats truly what he desired……..anonymity.
By the days of the Korean war Burlington here had been so damaged from the multiple prior wars that he was forced out of infantry duty…….the US War Department felt that it would be a good idea to teach this bastard to fly and he would become one of the Armies top aces as he would fly over a 2,000 successful missions and end up saving hundreds of lives as a medical evacuation missions and one that was not authorised but would become the very mission that would end his career.
Burlington here would be returning from a successful mission against the North Vietnamese Army when he would here the radio call come through for medical aid, the 16th Bravo Division was pinned down and under heavy machine gun fire deep within the jungles of Vietnam….or maybe Cambodia. Burlington only a few clicks away was redirecting his chopper to lend aid, when the commander of the division called off the medical transport, claiming they were overrun and some pick up the pieces later. Well Burlington knowing there was wounded and scared kids dying within the jungles carpet, he ignored the request seeing he wasn’t a medical unit and be damned would he allow for our boys to be butchered needlessly.
Reports indicate that the sound of his helicopter coming was music to the ears of the wounded who had already come to terms with dying……he was about to land his helicopter between the wounded and the enemy, allowing for the troops to load the wounded. He would than lift off under heavy fire and fly to a nearby MASH unit….then he would return for more wounded, he did this thirty times in all, Burlington would end up saving close to sixty lives that would have perished from their wounds. Though on the last mission as he was preparing to lift off, he would slump forward and nearly cause the helicopter to crash…….they would learn that he had been hit numerous times; he had over twenty bullet wounds to his legs, feet, hips and knees, he had a bullet that tore through his elbow, and shoulder and one that had cracked his pilot helmet and the shrapnel has tore into his ear, eye and skull. He had further shrapnel related injuries and according to a spokesmen for the US Army it would be a miracle that he was able to fly the helicopter in that condition let alone as many times as he had…….Burlington was a true hero and he as well set a new record of rescues that to this day is unmatched by any Army pilot.
Hero my ass, luck is more like it, he was a danger to everyone the second he was shoot and ignored his own injuries…….oh a trend with all these FIP assholes! He also heard the call off for medical transport and yet took it on himself to defy the orders and cause millions in destruction to government property. He should have been court martialed, instead I-Corp and the War Department through him a party……..I heard they had pizza and ice cream, they retired him seeing his injuries were to severe for continued service; something about him barley being able to walk and he lost dexterity do to a bullet tearing through his wrist and damage to his elbow, not to mention the damage to his eyes and ears.
They should have taken this lame animal out back and put a bullet in his head, they should have imprisoned him or executed him for dereliction of duty or insubordination…….no they gave him a blasted pizza party!!! So come 1970 he would return from Germany after nearly a year in the hospital and become a problem for the rest of America…….he would dodge redeployment to Iraq in 2005 do to being a US Senator at the time and the FIP contract couldn’t touch him under the Truman Act of 1951; (prevention of FIP contracts from being reactivated if the FIP soldier is currently an elected official, or in a career deemed important to his town, county, state or nation) now this act can be ignored or interpreted in the favour of the US Defence Department but in the case of Burlington he was a US Senator and hence untouchable.
Though for us we would have to deal with Figment for decades to come and the network of power players to come, not to mention the Kentucky Freedom Fighters that he helped form and serves in till this day. Figment would become close friends with the Enfields, and Mansfield’s within his state and this would open Pandora’s Box as Kentucky would remain a UCAS asset, while aiding the Confederates; claiming total independence from the UCAS all the while sending elected officials to DC and collecting federal money them as well…….not to mention the federal funds from the Confederates. Kentucky’s politicians would obscure everything within red tape and even today it’s unclear as to what side that state is on……they claim UCAS but one can never tell.
So basically when it comes to Figment one must be always on high alert as he has been spewing lies for generations and has become quite adept at the craft of political deflection and hard focusing on the narrative he and his goons have created. Figment helped in the bloody massacre that would ravage Kentucky during the early days of the “New World” and would go on to take up arms once again during the Kentucky Blood Bath in the early days of the war against the South. What side was this bastard on, well his own and the own that makes him the most money……he is deeply invested in the War Machine and stands to make billions of the backs of innocents during this new civil war.
We are supposed to feel bad for him seeing he is FIP, and a war hero; we are supposed to accept that he sacrificed greatly for each and everyone of us and has lived within torment ever since. Yup not going to happen, he is yet another FIP bastard to hold multiple doctoral degrees, enter the political world, raise a family and own a nice home within the Kentucky suburbs. We are supposed to thank him for all he has done and understand that these are self made men……..nope this bastard has squandered all his earned praise by forming the Kentucky Guard, aiding in the creation of the Kentucky Freedom Fighters and serves diligently within the Post Office and Presidents Men. He served the people of Kentucky as their senator from 1982 till 2073 and has managed to advance his own personal wealth from mere pennies to billions on the backs of the people he served.
I don’t have all that much on Figment as an operator and agent of the rebellion seeing he has access to the protections granted to him by the Horsemen, Post Office and the Kentucky Freedom Fighters……I mean they are protecting the Terminator and Mason why wouldn’t they as well conceal their friend Figment; seriously when the fighting within Kentucky started look who was the first to show up, The Railroad, Harbingers, 401st, 82nd, 501st, 67th, and the damned Horsemen. So we are left guessing and looking at whats on the public record and for Figment their is nothing outside of his work as a senator, as an assassin well we must assume the worst seeing he is known as either Figment or Timeout…….well maybe we should be putting Martin here in Time Out!!
This man serves secret orders, helped conceal Kentucky’s true intentions and stole countless billions from the UCAS and CAS to aid in the outfitting of his Kentucky Guard and not to mention the Freedom Fighters. He helped dismantle the Kentucky national guard by making sure they were defended and having the former commanding officers executed, all the while putting his cronies within places of power. The people of Kentucky love their former senator and demand he run again…..why you ask well they just love the man that rebuilt their state, lowered taxes and built them an amusement park with some of the worlds best coasters and attractions including the hybrid inverted coaster/log flume; being the worlds only steel water coaster that can reach speeds of up to 80+ MPH and traverse a track that is both traditional and water based.
Oh don’t forget he is a partial owner of said park and made damned sure that he manipulated the federal funding to dump billions of government money into his theme park simply known as “Figments Fun Land” They call him the CEO seeing he runs multiple vulture based companies that are a true threat to the Major Eight, he gobbles up smaller companies and than goes to war against the big boys……..and for this he is loved as well, Figment is the real deal and a real problem for everyone in the UCAS seeing he simply doesn’t care, he is partnered up with Brooks Mansfield, The Enfields, and has his hands deep within the underground railroad so be very cautious…….I mean the war in Kentucky started over the attempted arrest of Railroad terrorist Wendell Flanigan and suddenly the rebels and Harbingers where all over the state fighting against the CAS forces that had come to arrest a known terrorist.
Figment here might want to be forgotten and simply scene as a figment of ones imagination but instead he has become the poster child for corporate greed, corrupt politics and cold blooded murder……what do you think “Figment’s Fun Land” is other than a cover for a Railroad hideout and base of operations. This man uses his massive company to move products all over the nation and world (products my ass, more like troops and military equipment); he as well made sure the new Kentucky National Guard was under his thumb and the people would be unknowingly serving and supporting the same terrorists that the UCAS and CAS fight against.
This mans companies run attractions all over Kentucky from Aquariums to Zoos and beyond, he promotes his investments by stating “They will be beyond your imagination……just a figment of your reality” He openly states “Don’t dream it…..Be it!” and promotes lies that everyone in America is capable of anything as long as their willing to put in the hard work. Sorry senator not everyone is born with a silver spoon up their ass, not everyone was granted immortality for free and not everyone has access to a college education like you and your FIP bastards.
So what is he skilled in besides the basics, and flying…..well got me swigging seeing he is seriously an enigma, I can assume that he is a well trained swordsman, soldier and officer; one can assume that he is a very talented businessman and trained in arts and skills that would make the average street tough cringe. He has access to the best cyber and bio implants the world has ever scene and has been studding magical aspects since before the return of the Sixth World. He is worth billions and has access to equipment and supplies we can only dream off, he is married to a women whom he had lionised and is a father and grandfather, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t train and equip his family……..Oh and he is a Technocrat, yup he is one of their Special Agents and that means he is up to no good, seeing his boss is Wilhuff Palpatine the master of mind control, so be careful attending any of his theme parks seeing that souvenir cup full of soda might as well come with a microchip and some brain control serum.
