Commander Finch

Commander Finch is our other incentive model that will be available in the coming months.  Commander Finch and his spider monkey partner will come together in a set and are just a hint at the wide array of nefarious characters inhabiting the "Terminus Gate" universe.

Commander Jonathan Finch is the self-proclaimed Commander of the Void.  Finch’s exploits are known throughout the universe as he seldom stays in any one system very long and chaos usually surrounds him wherever he is.  Delusional to the extreme, Finch is also dangerously charismatic, ensuring that he always has loyal followers at his disposal.  Finch fancies himself a true pirate and has acquired a sizable fleet of ships both directly and indirectly under his command.  Finch’s custom gear is all crafted to reinforce his obsession with 18th century pirates, each piece ornately etched and engraved to his precise instructions.  Many years ago, Finch acquired a lothorian spider monkey that he refers to as His Majesty High Prince Oculus.  The High Prince is never far from the Commander, serving as faithful pet, best friend and body guard as the situation dictates. 

Specialist M.C. Duncan

Specialist M.C. Duncan is the second of our incentive models that will be available in the coming months (the first being Captain Finch) and is the first peek at one of the four sentient alien species with which humans have come in contact within the "Terminus Gate" game setting.

The gruumor bull known to his friends and enemies as Specialist Duncan is a brute of a specimen that leaves a lasting impression on everyone he meets. Duncan works throughout the outlying systems as a ships mechanic and field technician.  Duncan owns a small shipyard/space station and several maintenance barges that are decked out and equipped for deep space repair and towing.  His shipyard monitors interstellar communications for distress signals that could mean lucrative repair work.  Duncan’s organization is also known as the largest trafficker in illegally obtained ship parts in the universe.  Off the books, Duncan maintains hundreds of chop shops where they strip boosted ships in a few hours, selling the stolen parts as fast as they obtain them.
