Other Characters In-Game:n/a

Character:Agent North Dakota (Headcanon name: Nathan Reilly)
Series:Red vs Blue
Canon Point: Post-Season 10 (specifically after-credits scene where he's carrying her out)

History: North on the RvB Wiki

Personality: Despite being a character who is literally introduced to canon as a corpse, and has a limited amount of screen time in the two seasons that cover the period where he was alive, Agent North Dakota has managed to leave a last impression as the kind of character who is calm, patient, and just generally a good guy. The kind of guy that you might want as a big brother.

One of the key words used to canon to describe North is nurturing and that is a very good word for him. He's the caretaker of the freelancers, generally the one to check on people and make sure they're alright. Most of his attention is focused on his younger twin sister, Agent South Dakota, who he is very close to. The two of them are seen regularly working together as a team, often putting themselves in harms way to look after the other. South is very much a loose canon compared to North, and so he is the one that often reigns her back in. The two of them have a very strong bond and work well together, though North is also see as a team player regardless. This nurturing aspect makes him a prime candidate for the AI Theta, with whom he is partnered. As a more childlike AI, Theta was very shy and it was hoped that North would be able to bring the AI out of his shell and unlock his potential.

At the same time, North isn't afraid to have a little fun, and is seen to have a good relationship with Agent York and Agent Washington, though he and former were known to tease the latter. (In the recent book published by Roosterteeth, it was revealed that North and York would often provide Wash with conflicting directions to the mythical sauna on board the Mother of Invention). He also has a sarcastic streak to him, snarking during battle and wondering aloud as to why he is friends with Wash and York. He's also shown to be willing to take risks, even on the battlefield.

There are times, however, when his nurturing and caring nature become too much, and can shift into being condescending and overbearing. This is particularly evident in his relationship with South, as he tries to step in and control, for lack of a better term, her more abrasive actions, typically by talking to her and acting as if he knows best. He also takes his responsibilities very seriously and to the point of self-harm, as he is reluctant to pull Theta out of his head in order to get some sleep, as the AI is too scared to be away from North, leaving him to wander the halls to calm the AI down.

He does also have doubts and worries, particularly in whether or not he's doing the right thing. Eventually this leads him to acting against the Project, and his sister, by supporting Agent Texas with her break-in to rescue the Alpha AI. Despite this, he does remain with the Project following that event, and to the point where he is killed.

As North will be coming into the game without Theta, this will have an effect on his well-being. While canon does not go into detail about what happens when an AI is removed from their host (the most we get is that they are different), I have headcanoned a few traits. Internally, the agent registers a noticeable silence and absence where the AI used to be, and it can lead to a desire to not wanting to be alone as a way of avoiding it. They may also appear melancholy, missing the presence of the friend who was once a constant companion.

Ultimately, while he can be over-bearing, North is the kind of character who cares about his friends and doing the right thing. Befriend him, and you'll have someone who will watch your back.

Skills/Abilities: North doesn't possess any particularly special abilities or powers. He was a good soldier during Freelancer, proving himself to be a skilled sniper and fighter, as well as ranking 5th among the Freelancers for most of the story. He worked very well in a team, especially with his sister, South, and was chosen to lead one of the teams during the Sarcophagus recovery mission (even if they did end up failing). His armour is based on the Mjolnir suits created for the Spartans, but is less intensive.

The suit has the capability of creating a domed energy shield, but North will be reluctant to use it as it is difficult to run the enhancement without the use of an AI.

Network Sample: So, uh, I have a question about the magic here.

Can anyone learn it? Because I've been seeing people using it around town and, well, it seems pretty cool. Definitely wasn't something we had back where I'm from. And useful to.

I don't suppose it's anything like wizardry where you need a magic wand or something like that?

I guess you can consider me a willing student.

[There's a silence as he's considering something, and when he speaks again, it's a little bit softer.]

Also, has anyone seen an AI around? He's probably in a computer chip or something similar. He's a mix of red and blue and answers to the name Theta. He's...probably really scared right now so if you find him could you get him to me right away. I'm kinda responsible for him.

You can call me North. Probably should have said that first.


Third Person Sample: Please provide us with a third person sample. Here, we are looking for character's thoughts, how they move, how they act. Introspection is the name of the game in this sample. Make us laugh, make us cry, whatever! As long as we get a feel for how this character thinks.
