Here's the aforementioned "angel" character:

I made him in response to someone's assertion, during one of those interminable arguments about the names people give characters, that "there's no worthwhile reason why anyone would ever begin a character's name with a period."

The sharp-eyed viewer may discern that he's kind of a riff on that episode of the original Battlestar Galactica where Starbuck and Apollo die and go to Heaven (or think they have, anyway), and the only way you can tell is because their uniforms have turned completely white. :)

As you can see, this was before weapon customization, and he's still standing in the parking lot at the beginning of the tutorial. Maybe I should reroll him with a completely white rifle as well. Or make him a PB, so his wings actually work. You lose the rifle joke at that point (though it could still be his nickname from the War), but that might be okay, I'm bored with Assault Rifle anyway.
