Diana Knight[edit]

Country of Origin: Canada
Diana Knight used to be part of the JTF2; Canada's premiere special forces unit. She even fought back against the initial invasion. Until the invaders won and the world surrendered. But while they might have, Diana never did. She traveled the world, fighting back against the occupiers and training resistance group in combat, survival and sabotage techniques. She continued like this for years, trying to maintain the loyalty to the cause and country she once had, to their ideals.

Her work came to a head when the outpost of Angel's Point was attacked by ADVENT forces while she was present. She assisted the resistance force in the defense of the haven, but it was clear they were going to be overrun, and casualties were heavy. However, at a key point in the battle, a squad from the reinstated XCOM unit arrived and played a pivotal role in forcing the attacking forces back; allowing for the remaining civilians and resistance fighters to be evacuated. This was what she'd been looking for, all these years. Organized, global resistance. When XCOM moved out, she went with them.

From there, her work was mostly the same, training new recruits, but with more intensity, more focus. She had a goal, and working with the people around her, she had more faith than ever that they could do it.


OUTLAW is a dark skinned woman, standing an even six feet. She is heavy muscled, with blue eyes and dark hair. Scars occupy the left side of her face, a testament to the many fights she's been in and survived. There's a simple blue tattoo under her right eye, a shared mark with an old friend.

She wears a suit of jury rigged armor, pieces of Kevlar and metal taken from a dozen different suits and carefully pieces together. When she's on the job, she's never far from her shotgun; and there is always a carbon fibre tactical sword sitting in a sheath on her back.
