This is SFC T. J. "Stonewall" Jackson. She joined the Army to find her place in the world; she has no known next of kin.

Stonewall was shot in the neck during an ambush in Iraq and has been in a coma since.

Oh... Damn.

This does NOT bode well. Very ominous.

Also, a part of me says it's bastards like this guy that give people that call themselves "Doc" a bad name. I prefer the likes of good Docs Brown and Deacon.

In a world rife with enemies both foreign and domestic, Maerc Techno is working on battlespace equipment and the command-and-control systems underlying the drones and robots that defend America. But there's only so much their Gen III interface can do, and other organizations have already discovered that delegating too much autonomy to AI generates its own set of issues. Looking for a breakthrough to the next level of interface systems, Techno seeks a cybermedical solution that keeps a human in the loop.

Pursuit of this technological edge has taken very well-meaning people into a very dark place. The tally in lives is rising.

Damn... between you and Spelledeg, I look like a dang slacker, dredging up nothing but unseen history... weaving these stories like this...

Lirvilas you're hurting my feelings with all this sad. :(

Different note, how do you draw people laying down so well? I'm envious and their designs are very cool.

1) Want someone to lay down? Get a bed, then put 'em in it. As I've blabbed before, look up "Sketchup" to get the bed.

2) If you're emotionally invested in my characters then I promise you this: by the time this exercise is over I will provide one moment of utter, unadulterated joy.

3) Until then, onward with the rogue's gallery! (Yes, every single one of these sketches is of an obstacle or enemy of my main characters, including eventually Stonewall.)

Stonewall's story hasn't even started yet.

It gets unhappier.
