BLUF: Otherworldly beings took over the planet! Join Project Griffin and save our freedom from these villains!

Circa year 2020: Mankind accidentally make first contact with seemingly friendly paranormal entities, who then sneakily take over from right under humanity's noses. The otherworldly entities used a wide range of tactics to take over without the use of invasion or brute force. Assassinations, bribery, blackmail, corrupting officials, and so on and so forth were used. Humanity wasn't punched in the face. It was punched in the back of the head. A one-world government called the Emergence Entity was formed. While many questioned how the governments of the world suddenly fused together, it was "explained" away by international unity and globalism. During the time of their arrival, nobody on Earth had a concrete reason why the otherworldly beings appeared and did what they did. Some believed they're here to harvest Earth and the resources while playing humanity like a puppet. Others did believe they have compassion for humanity. While actions speak louder than words, propaganda has muddled the lines between fact and fiction. However, it can be inferred that dissidence has diminished over the 2020s save for pockets of misfits that live in the countryside rather than the cities.

2035: To take back Earth, guerrilla warfare has been deemed a must. The Griffin organization was founded from the remnants of the old world. The founding members were ex-military, yet the membership became much more diverse, expanding it from a mere nuisance to a threat to the Emergence Entity. It is up to a ragtag bunch of misfits to save planet Earth from the paranormal beings' nefarious plans. To Griffin, it wasn't military might that made the paranormals dangerous. It was how manipulative they were. Griffin wasn't just a global organization. It was a mobile one, using the Nemesis; a converted supply craft stolen from the paranormal beings, all to ensure not just a worldwide influence, but also outmaneuvering the bulldozer of an enemy. Griffin took to calling them Xenos to highlight their strange and otherworldly nature. If you're heroic or insane enough to join the resistance, do it or become them! Long live the resistance!

Class (AKA Specialty): Machine gunner / Bombardier
Appearance: storage1.censor.net.ua/images/0/6/9/2…
Bio: Santiago was once a Spanish soldier. Once. Now that this mess happened, he wondered what he should do. He didn't want to fight for people who might not actually be people. He also didn't want to fight for the wrong army against the wrong enemy. And most of all, he had to find a better world for his sister, who was also a soldier like him. She, though, has lost her legs. Now, he is forced to take care of her alone. With no family left, he entrusted her to a few friends from the army and went on to join Griffin.

Skills: Using a machine gun, first aid, weapons repair and defense.

I winced when I was reading this. With such a bare-bones and half-hearted application compared to the rest of the previous ones, I'm not sure if I have the stomach to accept it.

Name: Santiago Matthias, Suboficial mayor of the Spanish Army, the Spanish Legion
Country of origin: Spain
Class (AKA Specialty): Machine gunner / Bombardier
Appearance:

Bio: Born in Alicante, Spain, he was raised by a single mother after his father died in a car accident. His mother was a former police officer whose father served in the Second World War as part of the Blue Division. Together with him, they raised him to be responsible, loyal and patriotic. He was often reported to be protective and kind to others. He tended to be stubborn at times but he did his best and owned his mistakes when he committed them.

He was like this until he met his adopted sister, Camila. He looked after her long haired, green eyed and one-legged younger sister as much as he could. He sometimes skipped classes just to check on his sister as she studied in the nearby high school. Often, that got him into trouble but he managed to pass and finally entered the Spanish Army to support his family.

Santiago was a member of the 1st Division "San Marcial" in Burgos. There, he was trained to be a machine gunner for his old squad. He was an NCO thanks to his own efforts and the recommendation of his commanding officer, his uncle. From then on, he was transferred to the 1st Spanish Legion Tercio "Gran Capitán".

He first went under their ruthless training and earned his place among them when he saved a few Legionaries against orders to remain in the training base when they were under attack by North African insurgents. In addition to this, he and the rest of the Spanish Legion were deployed to Afghanistan to combat Taliban insurgents until 2014. After this, he was sent to Iraq and Syria to help local forces battle the Islamic State.

Eventually though, they too suspected foul play and corruption in the air. They also fled their posts because they feared the potential things that the aliens could do to their country. They feared that the aliens would destroy Spain and so, after much discussion and argument, they decided to go for it.

While he wanted to go back home and get his family out of Spain, he feared that they were dead and that he could be captured for desertion. So he and many of the Legionaries went AWOL and harassed all forces that tried to capture or kill them in the deserts of North Africa. They were then found by Griffon and taken in.

For now, Santiago is trying to accept his new life as a rebel while finding a way to contact his lost family. His sister, his mother and his grandfather.

Personality: Santiago is loyal and cool headed. He enjoys socializing with others and can get along quickly. He prefers to work in support of his team and doesn't like it when they get hurt or lost. He does his best to cover them and personally does his best to support each one of his team mates.

Skills:
