Gunnery Chif Mike Tritt

Gunnery Chief Mike Tritt (Gunny) made the military his life.

He managed to survive a Blue Suns assault on his outpost with the help of Arbitrary's mercs and an orbital bombardment from Polaron's cruiser.


Tritt's father served in the Marines -- earning the rank of Operations Chief, the highest an NCO could earn -- and served as Regimental Sergeant Major for the 4th Marines. Inspired, Tritt enlisted as soon as he was able. An outstanding enlisted man, problems with officers he did not respect nonetheless dogged him throughout his career. He served on several anti-mercenary task forces, earning the billet of platoon leader and the rank of Service Chief before an incident with a newly commissioned platoon leader had him transferred to the garrison on Eden Prime. Following the Eden Prime War, he was attached to 2/4th Marines, assigned to anti-terror duty. After successfully taking down hostage-takers without a single civilian casualty, he was promoted to Gunnery Chief and promptly pulled off the line, to serve at the 2/4th's Outpost Bravo, planet Tarith.


Tritt is a 16-year veteran of the Systems Alliance Marine Corps, yet even such a long time has done little to curb his idealism and enthusiasm. He describes himself as a man of the people, leading his men from the front by his example. He believes that a leader should be the first to set foot on the battlefield, and the last to leave it. Despite often jokingly complaining about his superiors - or officers in general - he has deep respect for all the competent officers he has served under. Idealistic, educated, and generally positive, Tritt is very much not the stereotypical career soldier.

But because of his idealism, Tritt also sometimes succumbs to naivety. He believes that everyone has such pure intentions as him, and that makes him somewhat gullible. The man of the people attitude also makes it especially hard for him to send his men into battle due to his emotional attachment.
