Bio: His name is Graphite and we have found the long lost Devil Dog that was involved within the Battle of Butte; this man served with General Archer during the days of the Great Tragedy ad turned his back on his country disobeying a direct order to stand down. Graphite would be the man that aided in the Devil Dogs opening the gates to there base and allowing the citizens within and eventually to taking up arms against the newly formed UCAS and NAN forces throughout the nations northern states. He would stay behind within Butte after the conflict and slither his way into the system there and surviving long after the the inept Devil Dogs would be defeated. We wold be led to believe that all of the remaining rebels were put to the rope and dealt with properly. Well this couldn’t have been more wrong, Graphite here slipped into obscurity and would become one of the many nameless and faceless citizens working behind the scenes to destabilise the city for the rebels.
Graphite would use his natural charisma and his years of experience within a command structure to both form a militia unit within Montana paired up with the rogue agents from the Sioux Wildcats that refused to comply with the new Native American Nations. He would as well step out of the shadows with a new identity and a new focus, recently married to a native women he would enter the political arena as a Loyalist and gain favour within the city as a sympathiser for the UCAS and it’s plight against the rebels; feeding of the outrage the people had towards his own unit. Nelson here wold operate his Grizzlies from the shadows and aim them at very targeted locations for the rebels thus allowing Archibald Kingsbury to gain a foothold within Montana. He would as well partner up with the Rattlers and Wolverines to further lend credence to his claim that Montana needed aid and help; The people would fall for his deception and his tearful claims of loving the UCAS, they would vote him in s the cities Mayor eventually the State Governor and by 2042 he would become the senator for Montana where he would remain till today.
Graphite still commands the Grizzlies and has expanded his control to extend outside of the states borders, he has allied up with the Governor of Michigan and between Graphite and Giggles they control the northern regions of America and have been pushing the UCAS forces out of their region with Giggles and the Michiganders taking all the credit while the Grizzlies remain hidden within plain sight. It is hard to believe that Senator Rodger here a staunch supporter of the Loyalist Party would be the infamous Graphite but it’s true. according to White House insiders Nelson Rodger was secretly pardoned by President River Welsh in a last minute closed door meeting with incoming President Oliver McKeen; thus making sure that their favourite loyalist remains free of irons and free to manipulate the Senate and political system further.
This man is a monster, seriously people he is a sharp as a diamond and even more lethal, he has been trained by the US Army Rangers program, served within the USMC Force Recon and was a member of the Federal Immorality Project. He has served within all four branches of the service and was within the special forces of each; eve serving in the 82nd Airborne during the Second World War. He has been trained in the ancient native secrets by the Wildcats and is highly educated. During his days in the Devil Dogs he butchered hundreds and trampled over the rights of anyone that opposed him, reports indicate that Graphite would wage into battle like a man possessed officers sabre in one hand and pistol in the other screaming his war cries and slicing UCAS soldiers limb from limb wading through gallons of innocent blood.
He seems to always carry a scalping knife, though we haven’t been able to locate it on him while he is in the Capital Building. This explains why his office is littered with native artifacts and artwork, though he claims its do his wife being half Cherokee half Sioux. For a man that has stood in support of further gun control and anti-war legislation this comes as a shock to everyone, though anyone that has been in his private office in DC can attest that he has mounted on the wall behind his desk a Vulcan AR-95 US-AS Combat Rotary Shotgun System; a weapon outlawed by the Geneva Convention yet used by Graphite during the Battle of Butte and many of his Grizzlies meaning that he either has access to a storehouse of these guns or is secretly manufacturing them as well as the custom ammunition that makes this gone a nightmare on the battlefield.
Montana was once a very staunch Loyalist supporter but over the years they have become more Freedom Party leaning and I feel that this article will simply turn Graphite into a local hero and not a criminal. This will simply aid in his reelection efforts come 2077 , though hopefully alerting the people of this will discredit him from the Loyalist Party and even though he is within the leadership and a ranking member as one of the most senior members in the Senate his party will be alerted to his long and hailed Freedom Party Leanings. Maybe they will toss him out of the party and he would be forced to wear the right teams colours and seeing he is still very progressive the Freedom Party will not support him either.
Be warned readers Graphite is a serious threat, he is a Lt. Colonel within the Rough Riders and a member of the Sons of Liberty, so don’t be fooled into thinking he is looking out for the UCAS in anyways, he is corrupt and focused on the rise of Old World Blues, this explains why Nelson was at odds with Senator Jones. He sits on the Senate Appropriations Committee, Armed Service Committee and the Oversight Subcommittee where he presides as the most ranking member on all committees; not to forget his placement on the Indian Affairs Committee. This man is very dangerous for many reasons many reasons first and foremost is his natural charisma and his placement of very important committees that he now sits as the most senior member and once chaired. Next is his combat prowess you don’t become a Rough Rider without being highly skilled, his Grizzlies are all but unknown and this man has remained in plain sight for decades and only now in 2075 are we learning about his true identity as Graphite and I expect that nothing will come of this as many fear Captain Charisma and others vainly respect this man as a true bipartisan politician,
