Physical Features

Although J.J. "Staredown" Marshall only stands at 5'8", he holds a commanding stature about him. Perhaps it's his seniority - he's definitely advanced in years. Despite not looking every day of 73, his hair is shock white, not gray, and the lines of his face belie the wisdom of his age. There's also something about the way he carries himself at all times with decorum and propriety. But his genial smile has a disarming effect, and his dark brown eyes speak of warmth and understanding paired with insightful intelligence. Instead of seeming like a senescent ancient, he gives the impression of being a wise and powerful gentleman.

Marshall is dressed simply in a dark single-breasted suit with subtle pinstripes. Combined with a plain white dress shirt, tie, and loafers, he looks sharp and professional. Furthering that image, he's usually seen carrying a black briefcase or a leather portfolio wherever he goes. The only jewellery visible on his person is a silver ring with the insignia of Assaultstar Victory upon it, which sits on the index finger of his right hand.

Known Associates

Abbot_icon.jpg Michael Abbot: I knew Michael. We crossed paths a few times over the course of our careers. He was a golden boy with a silver tongue, and I liked him from what I saw. An outstanding officer through and through. I'm not convinced of the results of his trial, but he met his fate with proud nobility.
