Danny Kincaid, Senior Defense Correspondent, Libran Post. It's one of those postings that's incredible prestigious to those in the business — which is to say those who follow the Colonial Military-Industrial complex — but incredibly boring to those outside of it. His 5,000 word expose on cost overruns and nepotism in contracting for the new Viper Mark VIII spaceframe project? A masterpiece. But it's not like it make him a household name.

But perhaps we should back up. Kincaid was born on Libra — to a comfortable family of a barrister and a house wife — and immediately took to being the sort of kid that people hated. Nosy questions? Check. Taking on authority? Check. So perhaps it was no surprise when he enrolled in the University to pursue his degree in journalism. After graduating, he took on a junior defense reporter role for the the Capital Daily News, covering all sorts of things no one else wanted to; ship commissionings, pro forma press conferences. All of that. But he made the best of it, asking the questions no one else dared to at these sorts of things, earning the ire of junior officials and respect of his editors. Along the way, he traded favors, learned the ropes, and became pretty cynical about how this whole 'defense procurement' thing worked. There, too, he ran across Allan Rejn, burying a story or two in return for enough deep background sources to fill his articles.

Physical Features

This Caucasian male might be in his mid-thirties, but the furrows of his brow and tiredness around his eyes suggest an age much older than that. His reddish-brown hair is let grown a bit longer down the back of his head in unruly curls, coming just below his ear; it's not quite regulation, but it's not exactly unkempt either. There are the first hints of white coming in, but they are not too predominant. So too is the hairline beginning to recede, showing some of his broad forehead, but he is at least holding the line. His blue eyes have a certain sharpness to them — like they're used to always being on the lookout. He's clean-shaven — perhaps a nod to regulations — but the bit of stubble around it suggests it's not a happy nod. He's average-to-tall for a fellow, about five ten, his build largely unremarkable, though clearly in-shape for someone his age.

On the Grid


Between the fancy ballpoint pen he carries — far nicer than anything standard military issue — the steno pad he uses to take notes, and just the way he asks questions, there's no doubt that Danny Kincaid is a former reporter. And there's also no doubt that he hasn't given up that side of him. While he might walk a beat rather than cover a beat, it's clear that he's a reporter first, and a Marine second.
