Diego Rojas-Espinoza

Basic Info:

Player: RedRosasGhost
Name: Diego Rojas-Espinoza
Aliases: Comrade Diego, That Pinko, Commie Scum

XP Unspent/Total: 0/0

Brief Description: A lean bespectacled Hispanic boy in an old canvas jacket and a scarlet neckerchief (like some kind of commie Boy Scout), with a large conspicuous toolbelt slung around his hips. Opinionated, ambitious, intelligent and intense, Diego often seems unusually animated despite the dark circles beneath his eyes giving him a sleep-deprived look.

Appearance: A scruffy-looking boy with browline glasses, olive skin, black hair that flares out on either side, and warm brown eyes. Diego’s got the dark circles and thousand-yard stare of a longtime insomniac, but also has the knowing half-smile of a guy who’s thinks he has everyone else figured out. His long-fingered hands and upper arms are wrapped in gauze and are often stowed away in the many pockets of his worn People's Army canvas jacket. Diego always has a Comintern badge (featuring the hammer and sickle emblazoned on a globe) over his heart. He usually wears his jacket in combination with a plain collared shirt, the red neckerchief of the Young Pioneers, sturdy sneakers and cargo pants.

Personality: Professional and wary at first, he quickly opens up to people who he deems trustworthy and forms intensely close bonds with longtime friends. Diego is an ardent and committed communist, of the prevailing Trotskyist tendency, which bleeds heavily into the personal philosophy that he follows. He blends a fatalistic apathy towards bad luck and a “it can’t get any worse” brand of hopefulness into a darkly humorous optimism. Like a model Comintern citizen, Diego has an inhuman work ethic, often running experiments or testing his models for days on end before collapsing into a 18-hour sleep. Diego relishes tough or tricky problems and prefers to think his way out of issues before resorting to physical violence, although this does not mean that he is the least bit fond of passivity.

Hobbies, Likes and Dislikes:

Hobbies: Journaling, designing and working on his machines, writing for the Red Flag newspaper, raising a variety succulent plants.
Likes: The Comintern, discussing political theory or engineering, gardening, learning about other cultures, talking about his day to his plants.
Dislikes: Bosses or business owners, capitalism and its advocates, elitist behavior, reminders of the fact that the Communist movement failed in this dimension.

Abilities:

The Means of Production - 5 (Power)
Diego has an instinctual knowledge of how any machine he sees works. He can conjure up a blueprint for the machine in his mind's eye and understands how to operate it like a long-time user. Furthermore, he can quickly assemble his own ultra-tech inventions to aid him. These can range from relatively "mundane" gadgets like a robotic claw to nigh-on impossible physics-breaking tech like the Dimensional Transporter that brought him to this version of Earth.

The Immortal Science of Marxism-Leninism! - 3 (Gift)
Diego is remarkably skilled at noticing various patterns and putting together the discrete elements of a complicated mess—related items jump out in his mind. This is useful for swiftly learning languages, breaking codes, or find clues hidden among massive amounts of data. This also grants him incredible skill with large-scale mathematics. Together with his eidetic memory, Diego can do everything from calculate the odds exactly when gambling to predicting precisely where a leaf falling from a tree will land by observing the landscape and local wind currents. Diego specializes in calculation involving the activity of complex chaotic systems and so can calculate answers that even the fastest computers could not, including things like patterns of rubble distribution from an explosion.

Traits/Features:

  • Very Near-Sighted -1 - Diego is legally blind without his glasses.
  • Damn Capitalist Pigs… - 0 - Diego was raised in a world where communism, anti-classism, secularism, feminism and internationalism were the highest ideals and sees capitalism, elitism, blatant religiosity, sexism and nationalism as almost-physically revolting.
  • Eidetic Memory - 5 - If not pressed for time, never need to roll to recall something that you witnessed or retrieve information from memory. If pressed for time, +3 to remember, and memory is always accurate if recalled.

Possessions:

Total Currency: 200 CAD (or labor vouchers to Diego)

On Hand

  • Utilitools - Mexican People's Army and Comintern issue.
  • Several batteries.
  • Various mechanical odds and ends (in his toolbelt.)
  • Electrolaser Personal Defense Weapon - Comintern standard (with the words"So Much For The Tolerant Left" written along the side in red Sharpie.)
  • Laptop (Doesn't look like much, but runs surprisingly well. The internals look like a horrifyingly complex composite of parts from other computers Diego jury-rigged together. Has a big sticker of "the three great theorists" on the back. Usually kept in his bag.)
  • Assorted school supplies (in bag.)
  • A pocket microscope.
