(((This is just something I wrote to set up my new character in the upcoming game  I would invite replies or advice to make it fit the story and theme.  Thanks)))


The sounds of the military base were a good indicator of the activity.  Vehicles both jeeps, trucks, and airplanes were in constant movement flowing like a giant anthill.

Amidst such chaotic activity, the space behind the tarp hanger was a secluded haven.  It was still loud, but there was an intangible sense of peace.  Even the sounds were muted behind the stacked crates.

In the shadowed space, a young man squatted and spoke in hushed tones.  His armband was leather, but had clockwork machinery on it.  It was to this that the youth spoke.  Even had someone overhear the discussion, they would have found it difficult to understand.  However the emotions playing across the young man's features helped tell a story of frustrated emotions and dark rage.

Eventually the conversation ended and the boy returned to his work.   The Curtis had not ran for weeks.  Liam ran his fingers along the wing lovingly.  There were not many of these F9C's around so there was no chance of scavenging parts.  And the Sparrowhawk was oddly setup, so it would be difficult to swap out for another motor.

Glancing about to make sure he was unobserved, the young man pressed his hand into the fuselage, and concentrated.  A soft glow flowed out of his hand, and seemed to pulse across the entire plane.  

Liam collapsed against the plane, drained.  For a few seconds he just leaned and collected his strength.  When the momentary weakness passed, the mechanic called out to the pilot's where they were lounging and gambling in the next tent.

“Tell John Mark she is sound again!” he said.  A tall lanky man came running immediately and hugged the boy (who visibly recoiled.)
“Bless you my friend!  I feared when I blew the motor that she was finished” the happy pilot bleated.
“It wasn't bad.  Just a small gasket I was able to make a new one.” the young man lied as he shied away from the physical presence of the pilot.

Stella please do let me know if this doesn't fit your narrative ideas.

The fantasy element of Liam's power may not seem to fit the Dieselpunk world, but I promise it would have direct relevance to WWII and the legends and superstitions directly related to the military aircraft.     

Once I let the story explain itself, it will make tons more sense.

Also..........   I wonder if anyone would like me to continue this side story?   It would be simple fiction and not interfere or directly relate to the game except as a backdrop to defining who and what Liam is.

I think that will fit well in what I have in mind. the captain herself has a bit more going on than she knows. There is something  other than her lucky charms that keep her from being shot.

I always say if it keeps you interested keep writing because you never know how things will grow.

Stella...............  approximately what year is it?   I want to be sure that I keep relevant points about aircraft and equipment, even nationalities of interest are at least loosely related to historic events.   



I realize that there is room for a re-imagining, but it would be a stretch for my guy to carry a glock without some kind of story driven explanation.     
*I am not saying I wont take liberty with the timeline or details, but if i do I want it to be on purpose and not because I am a lazy writer.

WWII was 1939 to 1945!

Like I said alternate history where things took a sharp left turn in 1914.  Tensions are running high because of unsettled scores but Germany was never brought to it's knees in the aftermath removing a lot of the push for the nazis.  Those elements are still there and being lead by a man that claims to see the future.  He says a glorious war is needed to cleanse the land for the promised people.  His movement is gaining followers slowly so it has to remain on the edges of things or be wiped out.  Think of it sort of like the man in the high tower only backwards.
