Battletech - The Ronin War
Kavellrist Sigurd Olsson
Former DCMS Mechwarrior
Sigurd is a true nord by all appearances; large and muscular with long brown hair. Stoic and introverted, he avoids idle conversation. He is a somewhat passive soldier who is eager to follow orders but is lacking in initiative.
Sigurd’s skills as a mechwarrior are passable with no stand out strengths or weaknesses. He received special operations training during his academy days and is adept at demolitions, smalls arms, and hand-to-hand combat.
He pilots a Thunderbolt TDR-5S
Sigurd grew up in a farming community on Tukkayid. His size and strength made him ideal for many tasks but he was especially interested in the operation and maintenance of heavy equipment. Never one to complain, he seemed perfectly content with a rural life of manual labor. Nevertheless, as soon as he was financially able, he left the farm to attend the Sun-Tzu School of Combat to become a mechwarrior.
After he graduated at the very end of the 4th Succession War, he served with the 8th Rasalhague Regulars on Rasalhague. When fighting broke out in the capital on the morning of the independence proclamation, Sigurd faked mechanical difficulty with his mech and deserted. Once separated from his lance, he sought out elements of the 1st Tyr regiment and surrendered himself and his Tunderbolt.
Eager to prove himself, Sigurd was one of the first volunteers when Överste-Löjtnant Klas Helvig announced his intention to form a new irregular unit.
