Travis "Tank" Thomas
Travis is a tall, almost gangly, male in his mid-twenties. His brown hair is cut in a high and tight, and his piercing blue eyes do little to hide an intense personality. Aside from his RDF PFC rank insignia and training ribbons, his uniform is pretty sparse.
Travis is a relatively quiet individual who seems quick to anger, especially towards Jon “FIG JAM” Caldwell, a former flight school classmate.
His call sign is a reference to an incident at NAS Whiting Field. During a long range bombing sortie, Travis accidentally pickled his centerline tank onto the target.
Travis is the youngest son of a former Navy Captain. His oldest brother was a Special Forces team leader who died in Europe during the first few months of the GCW. His other brother, Flynn, is a respected Gladiator pilot.
During the initial week of training, Travis was injured during an altercation with some Macross townies, and had to make up about a week of classes. No one has been charged for this crime.
He has a Poli-Sci degree from SUNY, and debated law school before being pressured to follow the family tradition of military service.
