Name: Derec Brandt
Hair color: Blond
Eye Color: Brown
Skin color: Heavily sunburned caucasian
Weight: 215 lbs
Civilian/Off-Duty: Derec, after all his years in the military, is ferociously unacquainted with civilian clothing, and as such, usually wears olive green T-shirts and jungle camoflauge pants, with surplus boots he replaces every couple of years.
In the Field: Basically the same as his civilain wear, but with a Class IV Kevlar vest strapped to his chest, and a Vietnam-era helmet he picked up cheap at a military surplus store. Usually has a cigar clamped between his teeth.
Personality: Derec, despite being retired from the Marine Corp, still carries alot of the "Ooh-Rah" spirit, almost to the point of annoyance to other FVZA Agents. Despite his overbearing nature, Derec is in every sense of the word dependable, and rarely cracks under pressure. Outside of the field, Derec blows alot of money on alcohol, and is in a perpetual state of drunkeness. Enjoys cigars.
Occupation: Derec was a former Master Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines, and as his job required, he provided technical leadership, in the form of training recruits with all forms of infantry weapons. Secretly, he wanted to become a 1st Sergeant, and continue his combat career, but, his physical aptitude wasn't quite up to par. He missed alot of action, but, got to serve in Operation: Iraqi Freedom for two years before his retirement from the Corps.
Weaponry: Derec, like most FVZA agents carries the 1911 wherever he happens to go, and inside his Toyota Corrolla, he carries either the Remington 870, or the Winchester Model 1894 rifle. Has a preference for carrying the M79 (loaded with buckshot) on missions that require weapons clearance, but will be happy with whatever is given to him.
Unbeknownst to most people, Derec also carries a Berreta 93R machine pistol he got as a retirement gift from a buddy he had in the Corps. He carries it in his car, purely as a backup gun in case he isn't able to get to the FVZA armory.
Specialty: Derec is a jack-of-all-trades kind of agent, good at everything, but, proficient in nothing. However; Derec does have one weakness, and it's stealth combat. Try as he might, Derec is about as quiet as a kitchen at full sprint, and is almost exclusively used in support-fire roles.
