Tui Tukiwaho - the Mako

Fire Support, Infiltration

Description:

Tui Tukiwaho, sometimes known as the Mako, is a fairly small but compact ork of Māori origin. He has a network of tattoos over his body; very traditional ones over his powerful thighs and buttocks with some smaller ones on his face (under the lower lip and around the jawline) and neck, and some with a more modern flare over his back and upper arms. His lower limbs are uncoloured.

Bio:

Tui is a compact, solid ork of Māori origin. He is a former member of the NZSAS (New Zealand Special Air Service Group) given a bogus Dishonourable Discharge for bulldrek political reasons. He often talks about “the Service” and is obviously very comfortable in the water.

Beliefs
Nzsas shore edit

  1. Korero (spoken word) and Kaupapa/Whakapapa (genealogy); the Mako has his story on his skin through his moko and kirituhi tattoo; any important event should be recorded. I will do impressive things that are worthy of being recorded on my skin.
  2. Mana (prestige, honour, power and authority); the Mako seeks to recover his lost Mana, and to improve it further. He wants to gain enough Mana to return home and start a family. I am working to redeem myself from past dishonour. When I have succeeded, I will go back to Aotearoa.
  3. There should be no limits on the application of necessary violence. I will not shy away from using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
  4. Warfare is a mess of uneasy truces and temporary alliances. When the time for betrayal comes, I will be the one with his gun in his hand.
  5. TBC

Instincts
Nzsas sea edit

  1. Leave nothing behind – remove evidence of passing when on an operation; recover shell casings, grenade pins, chocolate wrappers and the like and dispose of them properly at a safe location. (I always retrieve the evidence (e.g. shell casings, grenade pins, chocolate wrappers, etc.) I leave behind when on operation)
  2. When bullets fly eat dirt – in a firefight he who makes best use of cover walks away; take cover when bad things happen. (I always take cover immediately when a firefight begins)
  3. Hit hard, hit fast, hit first – when striking make your first blow count. Everything has a weak spot – when you’re unseen take the chance to strike at the weak point (If I’m I’m striking from surprise, then I take a Called Shot to do more damage (-4 dice, +4DV)

  4. He who sees danger is ready for it – keep a watchful eye for snipers, bombs and mines (and IEDs), tripwires and traps, cameras, drones and other environmental hazards; just because you’re enjoying a beer in a bar doesn’t mean you’re off duty. Amateurs get killed that way, professionals see trouble before it bites. Camouflage is used for a reason, it isn’t all on fatigues – a delivery man can be an assassin, a barman can be a spy. Taking people at face value is bad news, watch for the clues. (I always Observe In Detail when I enter a new area or encounter a new person)
  5. I always ready my most powerful weapon (longarm then side arm) when combat starts
