Position in TSAB: Member of 82nd – Rank 1st Lt.
Magic Rank: AAA+
Device: Intelligent Device Elsior
Magic System: Mid-Childia
Magic Color: Cobalt blue
General Dress: Long-sleeved shirts and dress pants when not in his Barrier Jacket – which appears as army fatigues with a predetermined camouflage pattern.
Personality: “Boomer” is equal parts investigator and socialite – when he’s on duty, he does his job. When he’s off duty – he has fun like there’s no tomorrow. He loves interacting with people, especially the other elite units of the Bureau. Boomer knows that as a member of an RAF squad, each day that you wake up could be your last – and he’s resolved to make the most of what time is given to him.
Background: Thomas Boomer was born on the 97th Non-Administrated World in Mid-Year 0049, in the nation of Ireland, to Sean and Margaret MacFarn. The third son of four, Thomas had a great deal of time to himself. At the age of eight, he took up target shooting, and soon became of the best shots in his county. At the age of twelve, he started making hunting trips into the Irish countryside.
On one of his trips, he came across a TSAB operation which sought a Lost Logia. Knowing the local area, he offered his service as a guide to the Bureau operatives. With his assistance, the operation was a success. Afterwards, Thomas expressed interest in the Bureau, and asked the leader if he could come to his home to talk with his family. Warily, they agreed. Their worry was needless: not only did Thomas’ parents take the news of the Bureau’s existence without shock, they told the Bureau team that they had always known. As Thomas’ father Sean put it: “Ya’d have ta be blind, dumb, and deaf to think that there’s no one else out there in the sky.” Thomas was given permission to join the Bureau after finishing at his current school.
At age 14, Thomas left Earth, and was admitted to TSAB Academy on Mid-Childia. After graduation, he spent a year working as an Enforcer. It was then that his sniping prowess came to the attention of Adm. Kyla Scrya, who recruited young MacFarn to the
, where he was given
, his current Device. After two years onboard the
, he transferred to Secretariat’s RAF, and was assigned to the 82nd Squadron.
Relationships w/Others: Boomer, for all the time he’s spent on the frontier, is fairly well-connected. Prior to his assignment with the 82nd, he served with distinction onboard the
, and to this day he remains connected with Adm. Scrya, and the Zakum Troopers.
On Sevasti: “Secastan is… something. I don’t know. He’s dedicated, but I’ve seen dedication lead to obsession, and I worry that he’s following that path. Don’t get me wrong, his tactics are amazing, and he can make the tough calls without fretting about it – but he tends to treat people less kindly than they should be. That’s why I’m glad Arcas is here – but more on him later. I know that to the rest of the group, I’m the peacemaker who settles arguments, but I’ve been tending to side more with Arcas as of recent. I know that Secastan isn’t happy, but in the GDI, we take care of our own – even if it means saving them from themselves.”
On Arcas: “Emira – there are days when I’ve thanked heaven and days when I’ve cursed it since he’s come here. But for the most part, I’m thankful that he’s part of the 82nd. He’s got guts – the kid stands up to Secastan on a regular basis and he’s still managed to gain the Major’s respect. He’s claimed that he has no desire to be a hero like the Aces, but I think that that’s the road he’s headed down. He’s got that one key factor – he wants what’s right for the people; a desire made easier by his uncanny gift at understanding human nature. No one else knows, but I’ve been working with him to try and bring the Major around to
way of thinking. In short, a good kid.”
On Melinia: “If the 82nd were an acting group, Mel would be the comic relief. Everyone gets all serious – and then Mel trips over a bucket and we all end up having a big laugh. Plus, she’s grown rather fond of Arcas. They may think that I’m teasing when I call them newlyweds, but in actuality, they’d make a good match. Mel’s the ray of light for us – don’t know what we’d do without her.”
On Kyla Scrya: “Adm. Scrya is a person I admire immensely, and that’s in spite of her rather…erratic nature. I learned my shooting skills on Earth, but it’s Scrya who turned me into the monster sniper that I am. I owe her a great deal.”
On the Zakums: “I left around the time they came to the
, but I’ve had opportunities to work with them since. All I can say is that that armor can make even the most mediocre mage dangerous – and these guys are far from mediocre. They live up to their reputation, every inch of it.”
