"I'm ready, man!"

• A lanky blue-eyed male human in his 20's, with a crew cut.
• off duty - He is wearing mismatched camo' fatigues, with an Acquisitives patch on the shoulder, and Pvt. Hudson name tag on his chest pocket, beside which is pinned a Starfinder Insignia.
He has a holstered pistol on his belt.
combat-ready - He has a suit of light armor under his camo' fatigues, and a gunner harness strapped to his chest: a wearable support mesh with an articulated arm on which a heavy machine gun has been mounted.
An electric-light beacon is clamped to the side of the machine gun.
His belt has various different-sized ammo' clip pouches and a of couple grenades strapped to it, alongside his pistol.
Beside his Pvt. Hudson name tag and the Starfinder Insignia, he has attached a serum of healing and a medpatch.
"In case of emergency", he says, pointing to them.
On his back, alongside his military backpack, he has strapped some sort of dart-shooting longarm.

From Absalom Station, born in the Downlow, on level 21, Hudson joined the Level 21 Crew. early. At age 19 he was arrested and given the choice of a 5 year stint in the ‘Sauna’ - a prison colony on the volcanic moon of Varos - or 10 years in Radaszam's Obsidian Spiders.
He went with the Spiders, and managed to pass training, and then actually fit in
Part of Bravo Gun Team, First Squad, 2nd Battalion, his goal is now the pension he will receive at the end of his service.
With this money, he intends to buy a share in Mama Fats' bodega, and live off the profits.
Having served just under three years, Hudson was a member of the combat unit deployed by the Obsidian Spiders to the moon of Acheron, to investigate the sudden loss of contact with the AbadarCorp terraforming colony: Hadley's Hope.
Hudson was subsequently involved in combating the undead infestation at the colony.
Badly hurt, one of the sole survivors, he was evacuated in a coma, and in deep-freeze for the duration of the non-Drift trip back.
Deeply scarred by this event, he has been transferred to the Acquisitives to help provide support and security to the Starfinder missions.

Armor Benefits:
• boots anchor your feet to a solid surface in a zero-gravity, allowing you to orient yourself or return to normal footing when needed
• armor protects you from a range of hazards through an environmental field (a minor force field specially attuned to pressure and temperature that does not reduce damage from attacks) that lasts 24 hours / level (standard to turn on, can be used in 1 hour increments) - cf. p. 297/298 CRB
• armor facilitates self-contained breathing, protecting you against vacuums, smoke, and thick, thin, and toxic atmospheres (including any airborne poison or disease)
• self-contained breathing functions underwater and in similar liquid environments. This protection allows you to breathe in a corrosive atmosphere to prevent suffocation.
• armor protects you against low levels of radiation and grants a +4 circumstance bonus to saving throws against higher levels of radiation
• armor’s environmental protections reasonably protect you against both cold (temperatures below –20° F) and heat (air temperatures over 140° F).

In armor (80 charges, use 1/hour)
A personal comm unit is pocket-sized device combining minor portable computer (tier-0 computer w. no upgrades or modules) and a cellular communication device, allowing wireless communication with other comm units in both audio- and text-based formats at planetary range.
