I've never actually played d20 Modern, but this looks like a really cool game: here's my application! It looks like it'll take the total applications up to 11, and I'd hate to deny someone else a spot, but two of them are still marked WIP so this will still leave a spot for at least one, and then the dice gods can choose their champions from there!

EDIT: I was wondering whether you'd be open to alignments changing. Currently I would say Nikolai is good or neutral, but he's definitely at a fragile place right now, and it might not take much to send him over the edge- just wanted to check and see if you'd be ok with a non-evil character potentially becoming evil, given that you wanted to limit the number of evil PCs. I could definitely see a shift towards evil, especially if he happens to bond closely with another party member and then lose them- feeling that he's failed to protect someone he's cared about twice could definitely break him.

Nikolai Raskolnikov
right-aligned image
Name: Nikolai Raskolnikov
Nationality: Russian
Training: Athlete
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Crime: "Wanton destruction of property, reckless endangerment, disturbing the peace, unprovoked assault and battery, attempted first-degree murder, high crimes against the Russian Federation, treason against the Russian Federation."

Backstory: Nikolai, or "Kolya" to those he was closest to, was one of the most popular of the several hundred members of the Russian Federation aboard the Arc. A skilled athlete who represented his nation well in the international games held on the spacecraft to keep the citizens entertained, the attractive young man had no shortage of admirers and friends- or at least, as little of a shortage as there can be, when your entire world consists of a few thousand individuals.

One day, however, while Nikolai was training, he overheard the Russian head of athletics discussing the "disposal" of one of his fellow athletes, a young woman named Sasha. Shocked at the language the athletics head was using, he continued eavesdropping, and realized that the man was planning on turning Sasha over for execution because she had refused to use performance-enhancing drugs in an upcoming competition, and he was afraid that she would expose that he was pressuring the Russian athletics team to do so.

Nikolai angrily confronted the coach, who pulled a gun on him. Unfortunately for him, Nikolai's strength and toughness were great, and he suffered serious injuries when Nikolai attacked him, hurling weights and punching him with full force. Unfortunately for everyone else, this only made Nikolai a criminal, and he was convicted and sent to be imprisoned. The coach's influence prevailed, and Sasha was framed for several vague crimes and summarily executed (being 19 years old and thus old enough for the death penalty).

Furious and wracked with guilt, for the next several months Nikolai trained incessantly. He wasn't given any athletic equipment in his cell, of course, but that didn't stop him- he regularly put out one or two hundred push-ups every day, and constantly experimented with new ways of building his muscles without any weights or equipment. He reasoned that once he turned 18, he would be removed from his cell for execution, and on that day he would make his last stand, taking down as many of his captors as he could with him.

When his 18th birthday came, however, it wasn't at all what he had expected. Guards indeed came to his cell... but rather than simply coming in and giving him a lethal injection, they told him that he was to come with them, and be sent back to Earth to see if it was habitable again. Shocked at this turn of events, he simply followed them, all thoughts of rebellion brushed aside due to the sheer surprise of the situation- and the realization that perhaps, he could make up for having failed Sasha by saving everyone else on the Arc. Sure enough, he was loaded into an escape pod with nine other young prisoners, and about fifteen minutes later, the pod closed, it went dark, and there was a roaring sound and a feeling of intense speed and acceleration, along with total weightlessness and lack of control, as the pod evacuated the Arc. Nikolai nearly lost consciousness, completely overwhelmed by the panic of being enclosed in the tiny, careening pod, but managed to make it through all the way to the ground. Now, what he will do remains to be seen...

I changed Issa's crime from incompetence to deliberate because she wanted to save her sister.

Darby McKowen
Name: Darby McKowen

Race: Human

Class: One Irish Nation (+1 Int, +1 Cha)

Training: Academic

Gender: Male

Age: 15 years old

Crime: Fighting

Personality He kept to himself most days, preferring the company of numbers over people. Math made more sense, was more predictable and never made fun of his name. He was named after his mother, who was named after her father. Nobody cared that it was his grandfather's name. They just knew him as the math weirdo with a girl's name. He could take the insults and the stares. But it was when the boys in his class stole his backpack, he lost it. He jumped on top of the biggest boy and couldn't stop pounding his fists into his face. He hadn't even realized he broke his hand until they locked him up.

Samson McKay:
right-aligned image

Race: Human
Class: United American States (+2 Int)
Training: Technician(Astrophysics)/Creative (Artist)
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Crime: Dispensation of private, possibly panic-inducing information.

Backstory: Samson, or Sam as most people called him, didn't quite lived up to his Father's dream. His single father raised him the only way he knew how on the Arc, a life of strict routine crammed with book work and learning everything his father knew, perhaps in order to save the Arc someday. Sam absorbed everything thrown at him but his true passion was art, even if he had to keep it a secret. When he overheard his father talking to a colleague about the decaying situation of the Arc, Sam felt it more than necessary to let people know and at first, while it caused a panic, Sam felt it was important for people to know what was going on around them. At least, being locked up in a small cell has given him time to work on his art without having to hide it.

At first, his new cell was the thing of nightmares, just bordering on the limits of his claustrophobia, if only the window was just a little bigger or maybe if the door was open. With the piece of a charcoal pencil he managed to beg from the guard, he turned his cell into a endless landscape with rolling hills like what he had seen in his books, making it far more tolerable most days, drawing in lakes and mountains in the far distance where he could stay safely away from them. If he had known that his rolling plains were about to be threatened and he was about to be thrown into a world where all those dangers he feared were going to be quite close, he might have gone insane.
