Colonial Militia Terran Marine

“You want a piece of me, boy?”
- Terran marine

Marines compose the bulk of most terran front-line forces, ranging from officially government-sanctioned units and local militias to renegades and mercenaries. Koprulu Sector marines are generally equipped with powered armor suits and rapid-fire C-14 rifles. The suit provides full life-support and NBC protection, allowing marines to deploy into environments that would otherwise be inimical to human life.

Despite such material investment into each marine, they tend to have extremely short combat lives. To improve their effectiveness and odds of survival, many marines make heavy use of stimpacks and combat shields.

=====================

Note: a bug prevents Terran’s racial bonus to toughness from being represented correctly in the character creator, however the final capped benefit is the same.

Terran Marines are considered Light, Biological, and Large. This confers upon them several benefits and detriments: The cost of defense is 1/2 of a point per point of defense, instead of a full point (this comes from being Light), however the character receives extra damage from characters that specifically target light or biological creatures. The character also receives the following: -1 attack & defense, +4 CMB & CMD, -4 stealth, -4 swim, -4 escape artist, -4 acrobatics, -4 sleight of hand, and +1 reach (this comes from being Large, see here). These are already factored into the statistics presented above.
