Bio: Well here is another Patriot that has walked from out of the shadows and revealed his alliance with the Patriots, it seems that with war being declared these old timers are not wanting to hide any more. Well when it comes to the Morning Star, I have mixed feelings about this runner. He is a product of those early times from the Ghost Dance and nights of blood and yes he lost everything in a blink of an eye and he focused his anger and hatred and became what we now today as the Morning Star, but he wasn’t a good man prior either. The Morning Star was a killer for higher in his younger days and he worked for some very shady and nefarious people doing things that would make most peoples skin crawl all the while pretending to live a normal suburban life. He had a wife, children, he was involved with his community and a Deacon of his church. In the eyes of his neighbours he was a pillar of the community and a good God fearing man. But in reality he was a murderer for hire and would bring sorrow to many families by killing there husbands and fathers, he is as cold as ice and the target didn’t matter and the reasons he didn’t want to hear about. He only cared if the cash was good and his employer would keep there mouth shut. The Morning Star would make damned sure that any loose lips, were quickly and permanently sealed. This man prior the Ghost Dance and then the Data Crash worked as a prosecutor so he would have instant knowledge of someone about to squeal like a rat and the Morning Star would be there to snap that rats neck.
This is why I have mixed feelings about the Morning Star, he wasn’t like Orion, Forge, Dakota or even the Ringmaster who entered the world of the shadows after themselves and there kin where killed or injured. They are fighting for a cause they believe in and those men didn’t have much of a choice, but the Morning Star was already a very evil man prior and this native uprising allowed him to capitalize and become worse. The Morning Stars world came crashing down during the Ghost Dance and he lost his wife, children and grandchildren as well he lost his home. The Morning Star at this point turned off any compassion he had left in his body and the nice old grandfather guise he wore went away for good. All that was left is the Morning Star and this handle also has a religious connotation behind it. The Morning Star is one of the names for Lucifer, we can see why he took this handle and has shown the world just how evil he can be. The Morning Star has brought hell upon the natives for what they did and he offered his services as a killer for hire to many of the mercenary bands that where forming during those days. This man would kill just about anyone who was of native decent, it didn’t matter to him as long as blood filled the streets and he got paid. This was for most was a war for there land, a war for there home and a war for revenge. For the Morning Star it was all about the mighty credit and if he could get some payback that was good too, this killer for higher made a big name for himself during those early days by being the go to guy for removing any and all threats. Though once the Government signed the Treaty of Denver and made any actions against the newly formed NAN a war crime, the jobs for the Morning Star dried up faster then the Nile during the dry season. The Morning Star quickly went from highly sought out for his skills and lack of care, to being a wanted felon and forced to take shelter deep in the wastes where he was forced to fight for survival not profit.
This is when the Morning Star started to understand what his fellow Americans where fighting for as he was seeing first hand the atrocities being committed by the NAN forces, this is where the Morning Star had a change of heart and began to fight on behalf of those that couldn’t and defend the week and helpless. He kept the handle of the Morning Star but know he fought for the injustices and tyranny that had been cast upon him and his family and countryman. This once killer for hire has become a soldier of fortune and finally bringing justice to his own kin who were brutally murdered during those bloody days. This is where the Morning Star meet the infamous Colonial and was offered a position inside the Freedom Patriots and was given a strange serum by Colonial to help him fight off the effects of age. The Morning Star has ever since been a soldier for Colonial and has been fighting the natives, this man is know used by Colonial as a clean up agent and his decades worth of assassinations and experience as a contract killer has served the Patriots well.
The Morning Star still has no compassion and cares little for who he kills, but he now has a goal and he has motivation as he still holds the memories of those early days deep in his soul and he is haunted by the dreams of his family for not properly avenging them. He is man who is only whispered about in legend in the native lands and do to the Data Crash he has nothing to fear from his earlier killings. If you even see the Morning Star it’s to late, this man is Colonials personal assassin and clean up specialist. The Patriots like the Deaths Hand do not like to leave loose ends and if they do they send the Morning Star to make sure these frayed ends are silenced.
