Casual Encounters - Fiona and Sam

Since my post about Michael Westen of Burn Notice was well received, let's round things out by presenting Michael's support team. 

"Should we shoot them?"
 
Fiona Glenanne     698885      Rogues  5 Terms Age 38   Cr 0-lots
Demolitions-3, Gun Cbt-2, Unarmed Cbt-2, Streetwise-1, Air/raft-1, Blade Cbt-1, Heavy Wpns-1, Interrogation-1, Recon-1


Fiona was/is Michael's long-time love interest. The two met while Michael was under cover, having infiltrated the Bishorian Monarchist movement on Gataneu. (See the entry for the Talaveran Empire.) Fiona did demolitions for them, until her local group leader got too radical and began targeting civilians, including children. Fiona has always had a soft spot for children, and so she broke all ties with the Monarchists.  Michael was pulled from his infiltration mission before this, and the two lost contact for years. They met up again on Bishor after Michael was 'cast out'. Now she uses her skills and her underworld contacts to help Michael on his 'jobs'. 

Like Michael, Fiona's SOC is 5. She cannot reveal her past association with the Monarchists because it is illegal on Bishor to have anything to do with them. Fiona rents rooms legally, but most of her work (apart from Michael) is still criminal, so she cannot integrate into Bishorian society.
 
Or as he is better known, Chuck Finley.

Sam Axe     889877      Navy Commander  6 terms Age 42   Cr 0-some
Administration-1 Forgery -1, Liaison-2, Carousing-3, Gun Cbt-2, Interrogation-1, Leader-1, Recon-1, Air/raft-1, Unarmed Cbt-2

Sam is Michael's oldest buddy. They've been everywhere and done everything together; Sam's job in the Navy Special Services section led to his missions often overlapping with Michael's. Currently Sam is retired on Bishor, although the reason for his retirement is cloudy. He spends his time womanizing, drinking, and helping Michael on his 'jobs'. Sam's Carousing skill reflects (as much as skills do) his extensive network of contacts, both legal and illegal that provide him with valuable information. 
Sam's SOC is better than either Fiona's or Michael's because of the three he can most honestly admit what he did for a career.
