Cyber Implant are muscular nanotech that increases Strength and Agility.

Deadly Enemy

The following is the basis of the character Hero from Red Steel 2 video game (The impetus for the character). If iy will fit with the story, then the Jackals. If not I can come up with something else.

Hero is the only member of the Kusagari Clan, since the Kusagari Clan massacre. After enduring a 5 year banishment from Caldera, he returned home to find all of his clan members are killed. He then embarks on a journey to avenge his clan and destroy the vandals known as The Jackals.

And your welcome... lol

I'm thinking of throwing a pilot in the mix.

Background: Clayton is a natural pilot, born behind the wheel as they say. He took to flying hovercars and racing them from a young age, and quickly moved to flying anything he could strap himself into. He got into any race he could find and worked up enough money and recognition to get into what passes for Iron Man competitions these days.
He got into those competitions that required both physical agility and driving and piloting skills. The moment the war was over, 6 years ago(?), the time was perfect for larger competitions to start up, and Iron Man: Rim Run was born. He jumped right in and quickly made a name for himself.

It began with a launch in a private fast small, two seater ship on Ezra with a mad dash to New Melbourne where you had to participate in a 5K swim. Immediately after, you had to Dash across the Black to Boros where you, participated in a 40K run. After Boros, you dashed in your custom ship to Whitefall where you participated in a souped up hovercar race, after which dashed back to Persephone while navigating an asteroid field along the way, hitting check points. It took place every 6 months, of which Clayton won the first three Races hands down.
He entered the 4th race and was in the top ten while racing on Whitefall when he crashed. It only made news for a day due to a four-way dead heat between other popular racers all the way through the asteroid field - in which two racers crashed and died - to Persephone. More ignored by the Alliance than sanctioned, especially with the war just over for a bit, it was quickly shut down after the last race in which so many died. Almost everyone remembers him, and a lot think he died in the crash on Whitefall. He almost did.
At the time, his hair was always worn in a crew cut, and he was known for doing all his world based races in shorts. His fastest race time was never beaten, and you can still find a poster of him out there in the Verse at swap meets and such.
After his recovery which required massive organ replacements and a new cybernetic left leg, he decided to take it easy for a while. While taking a job as a pilot on a mid-bulk cargo ship, he found he loved the things, and was even more gifted flying them than faster ships. He could land anywhere, fly in any situation, and sneak in places people wouldn't even dream of flying.
Throwing in the last of any Credits and such he has saved to purchase and refurbish the ship, he treats her like a person, even talking to her at times.
He loves his job, and other than his tendencies to get in trouble, he's a decent crewmate. He loves to have a good time, and can't stand it when he isn't "in on" what is going on with the rest of his crew.

I will alter my skills a bit... This character was made for a more Cowboy Bebop setting which would have bounty hunters with their own smaller craft (ie. Swordfish II).

That's not really a thing in the Serenity universe so no need for such a high pilot skill. Might need to make a few more tweaks as well.

My brother (Morganth) will put in a bid for Mechanic/Muscle on Friday. He's at work for the next 36hrs and he didn't bring his laptop.
