Personal History: Zack was born in ORB to a scientist and a Mobile Suit designer and engineer. His mother was the scientist, always the difficult one. His father was the Mobile Suit designer and engineer, he was mostly the lazy one. His mother and father worked at separate jobs but still with one goal: to help stop the discrimination against Coordinators and hate between the two races. His mother was actually a Coordinator whilst his father a Natural.


During a project they were both working on somewhere in a ORB controlled facility on the mainland, they were attack and murdered by forces with no known affiliation to ZAFT, the Earth Alliance, or rebel faction. When Zack found out the news he was only 11. He vowed that when he became old enough to enlist into the ORB military when he was 16, because of his father's facination with Mobile Suits, he would make him proud and be a Mobile Suit pilot.


During the time between his parent's death and his enlisting, he lived alone. He was cared for by other ORB citizens with food and other needs. He was usually quiet because of shock, or so people thought. He was actually building up an intense hatred for the Alliance and ZAFT and their stupid ideals and war.


When the time came, Zack showed much potential but lacked the skill t be a MS pilot but still pushed on. He kept on trying no matter what and finally became one of the elite in the ORB military. Although he wasn't as good as most other elites, he was O.K. He gained the title of "the TURK" by the veteran soldiers because of his black space suit and Mobile Suit. It was like a "noobie" title, really.

The biography is too short, and rather cliché.


Things to consider adding:


1) Why is he called "The Turk"?


2) Why would it make his father proud if he piloted a Mobile Suit? Why didn't he choose to become a designer/engineer like his father, or even a scientist like his mother?


3) If he was orphaned at 11, what was his life like from then to the time he enlisted in the military?


Things to change:


1) "... no affiliate to either side": What side/s?


2) While it is acceptable to say your character has been in the military for two years, you cannot arbitrarily give your character a rank/position. Only upon acceptance into the faction's military will you be assigned such by the Faction Leaders.
