Although the structure of his head is slender with defined cheekbones he has quite a masculine build. As for his apparel he wears a sleeveless dark gold and brown stripped t-shirt. Covered by a dark brown and slightly torn trench coat. His pants are a mere black cargo set with a crescent knife and water jug strapped to them
History: Born of a lower middle class family Christie's early childhood has been one of struggle,confusion and learning. His mother was a car sales person and father a quarry worker, unable find a house with a reasonable price they've gotten the misfortune of having only enough to to make the mortgage. As this proceeded Christie developed some unsavory behavior that ranged from bullying others out of jealousy engaging in fight due to individual mouthing off about his financial issue & more often than not stealing.This behavior grew and was never touch on until his sophomore year in highschool where an ROTC instructor could see his acting out and figured to tend to it so that he may better himself and would'nt put himself in the scenario for serious trouble. As the years passed he had become more disciplined and level headed, at the same time demonstrating admirable leadership qualities though he would often think of ways to best serve himself. By the time he was 22 he was in his second year of college when more trouble struck him at home where his mother had a shifted disk and it crippled her ability to move there wasnt much he could do for until he used his acquired skills from what his time in ROTC offered him and became a contractor. This required him to partake in some.....unsavory tasks which resulted in him dropping out of college and these tasks ranged from kidnapping to robbery to killing. As long as he's been doing this he was soon offered a position with a group of Mercenaries aboard the S.S Alice. Due to his drive and his loyalty he was soon made 1st mate by the ships Captain Elgyn. For the duration of his stay he soon befriended the ships' engineer Vriess as they shared common upbringings in terms of under privileged social classes. Vriess was critically wounded by sharpnel near Norway when the crew was operating there as mercnaries, the injury paralyzed him from thewaist down, forcing Christie to carry him out strapped to his back, what the two now know as the "Norway Maneuver". Following his injury, Vreiss was confined to a wheel chair, eventuall constructing his highly motorized chair. There was soon a contract where his ship was meant to deliver civilians to an armed forces base for purposes unknown to them. When the ship ported the base the contract betrayed the captain and had him and the crew members attacked, during the resistance Christie took a movltov to his face resulting in the left side of his face suffering third degree burn and scars from glass. while the chaos resumed him and few members of the Alice were to flee to safety, though its been a number of years since he's lost contact with them.
Personality: Despite the fact that he was every bit as cold-blooded and ruthless as his crew mates when the situation required it, Christie was the most stable and amicable among the mercenaries on the Alice Unlike the majority of the crew members aboard the ship, Christie showed compassion and friendship towards the crippled Vriess, and was always the one to help when Vriess was without the use of his chair. Maybe it was because as odd as it may seem he was reminded of his mother, which made him abit apt to converse with Vriess. Christie was fiercely loyal to his captain Elgyn, but still remained his own due to his own leadership qualities. Even so, he was mistrustful of others and something of a loner. Even though he's far from proud of the decisions he's made thus far, he doesn't regret any of it. If one wishes to have a pleasant encounter with him, don't judge his past decisions and be patient.
Weakness: Because of the damage that was dealt to his left eye his accuracy has been thrown off but by very little, as long as he is not under any physical strain or nothing's obscuring his vision he is able to stay to his true accuracy. If he's ever without his wrist guns or his crescent knife favor falls dramatically to his opponent. He's as strong as an athletic gentleman and outside his skills with firearms he can still be bested in a fist fight if the situation calls for it.
Weapons/Abilities: Christie is a master with small arms, capab of calculating and performing ricochet trick-shots that others would never even consider. He is also an expert of close quarter battle, even more so when he uses his crescent knife and an expert with general knowledge of such firearms, preferring to use the type of disposable weapon favored by professional assassins owing their reliability, simplicity and high stopping power. He notably carries two small wrist guns mounted on extended rigs on his forearms; he designed and built the slide mechanisms himself, to conceal the weapons where few searches would ever think to look.
