For the Homeland

This will be an Orb centric roleplay that takes an alternate look at the events of Heliopolis, and how that cascades into the politics of the Orb Union on earth. I’m hoping that this will be as much intrigue as it is battles. Although this is going to be Orb focused; by all means feel free to explore characters from other factions so long as it ties in. 
 

The Story So Far...

This takes place around the beginning of Gundam Seed. Things start out similarly except this time there is an Orb commando team there to take advantage of the deteriorating situation. ZAFT still steals the Aegis, Duel, Buster, and Blitz. However Orb obtains the Archangel, the Strike, and secures all the Astrays that were kept in storage there.

It’s during that chaos that our characters begins to appear, namely Nathaniel, Geneva, and Roane. Nathaniel and Geneva use Gold and Blue frames respectively to fight of the second wave of ZAFT mobile suits but the results are similar to the show with Miguel getting killed, and Heliopolis getting destroyed. 
From this point Nathaniel is able to negotiate a cease fire with the ZAFT forces there and they go their separate ways.
On their return home the Orb special forces who stole everything are met with contempt and it flairs up the politics with the Orb council decided to blame Uzumi Atha and looking to elect new leadership. There are politicians who would side with either the earth or ZAFT forces respectively; while others seek ulterior motives (Namely Lord Rondo Sahaku).
At this point the special forces team has been reorganized and the are preparing to go out for a training missions to optimize their abilities with both the Archangel and the Astray mobile suits.

please note that initially there will be limited access to mobile suits:

Gold Frame (Nathaniel)

Blue Frame (Geneva)

Red Frame (Roane)

Strike Gundam

Green Frame (Kieran)

Mirage Frame (Kalika)

Further on the M1 Astrays will become available as well! Depending on circumstances it could be possible to obtain other mobile suits from other factions too!

      MBF-P05 Gundam Astray Purple Frame (aka Mirage)
      The Orb Union began developing the Astray alongside the Earth Alliance GAT series at the Orb colony Heliopolis in CE 70. Much like the Earth Alliance prototype mobile suits, the Astray Mobile suits are able to use Beam Weapons and and plug technology which would share data and energy with the equipped weapons. 
      Unlike the Earth Alliance prototypes the Astray series was not equipped with Phase Shift armor, instead opting for light weight and higher mobility to compensate for the lackluster armor. 
      (For the Homeland) 
      The Gundam Astray Purple Frame was commandeered by Lieutenant Nathaniel Barondel. He used the unit to fight off a GINN, and eventually confronted the ZAFT flagship to negotiate a cease fire. The Gundam Astray Purple Frame was still in pieces during the Heliopolis incident. It was later fully constructed onboard the Archangel and has been developed the the second generation of Natural Operating System installed. Because the Purple frame was developed later than the other units in its’ line it had several design features that were outline but never implemented in its’ blueprints. The unit was hastily constructed to be serviceable along side the other Astray Gundams.

      MBF-P04 Gundam Astray Green Frame
      The Orb Union began developing the Astray alongside the Earth Alliance GAT series at the Orb colony Heliopolis in CE 70. Much like the Earth Alliance prototype mobile suits, the Astray Mobile suits are able to use Beam Weapons and and plug technology which would share data and energy with the equipped weapons. 
      Unlike the Earth Alliance prototypes the Astray series was not equipped with Phase Shift armor, instead opting for light weight and higher mobility to compensate for the lackluster armor. 
      (For the Homeland) On January 25th CE 71 ZAFT forces caught wind of the Earth Alliance manufacturing mobile suits and sent a team to steal the new mobile weapons. During the heist a group of Orb commandos responded to the crisis by stealing the battleship Archangel along with the Earth Alliance’s Strike Gundam. During the chaos they secured and activated three Astray Gundams of their own creation and repelled the ZAFT forces at the cost of Heliopolis being destroyed. 
      Green Frame was fully constructed after the Archangel went to earth. It, along with the Purple Frame, were hastily completed in order to be serviceable for the Orb Military. Green Frame would be assigned to Keiran Larris and be assigned to the Archangel along with the other Astray prototypes.

      Blue frame was preserved by Geneva Halston during the Heliopolis disaster. She went on to defend the Archangel and defeat two heavy weapons GINNs with her untested unit. Just prior to being deployed again for training exercises on earth,  Blue Frame was outfitted new experimental weapons.

      Red frame was originally tasked to be commandeered by the Orb Special Forces agent Ed Shiro but was tricked by the test pilot Roane MacMaster. Roane blended in during the chaos and helped transfer the parts for Green and Purple frames while the battle for Heliopolis was fought. Red frame is unique in that it has the first prototype version of a natural operating system installed, with Roane being uniquely qualified to operate the machine.

      Biography
      Full name: Delphine Hawthorne 
      Faction: Orb
      Rank: Captain
      Age: 36
      Sex: Female
      Height: 5’5”
      Weight: 150
      Eyes: brown
      Hair: red
      Skin: fair
      Handiness: right handed
      Personality
      Delphine can be cold at times, always task oriented. Despite her professional demeanor she often harbors doubts about herself and her abilities. She can be a facade of strength but a mess of emotions underneath. 
      She can be quite playful with people who she considers close, and even has a reputation as a bit of a flirt outside of duty.
      Strengths and weaknesses
      Commander  –  Delphine is a natural leader. She is easy to follow, and persuasive in her commands, even if she herself doesn’t fully understand the situation. 
      Lack of confidence – in a professional world that competes with coordinators she herself can find herself lacking conviction or harboring self doubt. Though she is good at keeping this part of herself hidden from most, those who know her well enough are able to see when she is feeling uneasy. 
      Ambitious  – She is career oriented and has always had aspirations of advancing her military career. She will work protectively of her station and her progress. She is also willing to take questionable risks if it means advancing herself. . 
      Natural – Nothing special about her Genes though she does keep herself in excellent physical condition. 
      Appearance
      Delphine is very attractive, but often hides her charms behind a military uniform. She will rarely dress up in civilian attire and even then hardly ever in a dress. Her eyes tend to speak volumes as she has what is described as a mischievous smile. 
      History
      Delphine grew up in Orb and has lived there her entire life. She could be described as a military brat with both of her parents having served in the military. Even growing up she could be described as a tomboy despite her good looks. She lived a fairly normal childhood even going as far as marrying her highschool sweetheart Frank. 
      Despite being married at a young age she was determined to not be tied down with a family and always maintained with her husband that she would be serving in the military like her parents had. This understanding had at times come at odds with her husband, but even so they stayed together. 
      As she progressed in her military career she came to work closely with another officer by the name of Nathaniel Barondel. For the longest time he never disclosed to her that he was a coordinator, but ultimately confided in her when he saw how desperately she was trying she to keep up with his pace of growth. 
      The two developed a mutual relationship that proved how coordinators and naturals could work together to feed of the others strengths. In many regards it was Nathaniel’s “one step ahead” demeanor that drove Delphine to thrive and push herself. 
      Their teamwork culminated as they were assigned to the same special operations team, with Delphine acting as his second in command. The ultimate test was when they were tasked with securing the secret Earth Alliance weapons being developed in Heliopolis. Together they accomplished the mission. Politically Hawthorne was shown in a positive light as the heroic captain of a ship that saved countless civilian lives that day. 
      The added pressure of publicity mixed with the political climate weighed heavily on Delphine’s ego. This was compounded when she was assigned to be the permanent captain of the Archangel, a challenge and opportunity she couldn’t pass up.
