From the moment he could read he studied military tactics and the art of war, as he grew his studies piqued an interest in weaponry design nd then engineering as a whole. His thorough and near infinite knowledge of both make him a true asset of his beloved Imperial Corporation. It wasn’t until he joined the controversial Golden Lions that his ability to pull off calculated risks with minimal Imperial casualties became pparent, even if his tactics resulted in abhorrent and repugnant losses to his megacorporation’s enemies. It is this disregard and isrespect of his enemy’s lives that has won him many of his victories, but has also found him in more than one boardroom, as the marketers and negotiators frantically, but never unsuccessfully, attempt to cover up his atrocious war-crimes. Timothy MacGuire believes that his true strength lies in his preparation. He never appears in the field without ensuring the odds are in his favour; he has an extensive network of informants and spies, scattered across the planets, moons and asteroids of the inner worlds, as well as even beyond the asteroid belt. He has codenamed his network the ‘Greenflies’, they gather both military and political intelligence so that MacGuire is able to put together extravagant and well informed attacks which rarely shift from his intricately mapped battle plan. However, MacGuire does not rely upon espionage alone, he pairs it with his encyclopaedic knowledge of military tactics, weaponry, and life-long interest in the intricacies of war. Every morsel of military trivia is catalogued in his photographic memory, to be pulled at ease when the situation or expected situation demands. As such, MacGuire and his Lions often perform military tactics and stunts long lost in forgotten chronicles of time. After the Capitolian siege of the Maidenhead Mining facility, MacGuire transferred from the Martian Trenchers to the 3rd Golden Lions. Maidhenhead was bloody and brutal, a 3-week engagement of attrition in which over 20 000 tonnes of ordinance was dropped by the Imperial air force alone. Just as Capitol was being overwhelmed, the Cybertronic forces joined the fray. They slaughtered the Capitol and Imperial forces as one, using cruel and inhumane tactics. So severe was the attack, that the stoic Imperial army was dislodged. They fled to the Kirkwood Mountains where hard won ‘run and gun’ tactics were implemented; there were innumerable casualties on both sides. At this point, MacGuire realised his understanding of the Cybertronic military tactics was insufficient. He vowed to himself that if he was to survive this rout he would fill this hole in his knowledge immediately and Cybertronic would pay for the outrageous beating they had caused his corporation. After 4 months study, he joined the Golden Lions and implemented a number of strategems that would see the fierce warriors decimate each and every Cybertronic force they met. MacGuire’s mind is never still. When not studying, he will tinker with his armour and weaponry, increasing
its potential even if by only the most miniscule of amounts, fine tuning elements that many would consider to be tedious and not worth their time. Timothy, however, will work meticulously for hours to simply increase his weapon’s cyclic rate by a single RPM, or its maximum range by a fraction. His suit has been a decade long project of minor improvements. It still bears the left Claw, but his right gauntlet is heavily modified to mount his personally designed firearm, the ‘The Pride of the Lions’; an autocannon specially designed to fire explosive shells, again of McGuire’s own design, that emit an EMP and scramble the electronic fields the tin cans use to protect themselves. A good looking chap with a perfectly manicured handlebar moustache, his sharp features and personable demeanour draw the attention of many a suitor. The Serenity herself has shown something near affection for him, her pupils dilate and she blushes the colour of his battle armour whenever she sees him. Whether this, or his achievement record, will result in promotion, a Knighthood or a chest full of medals is yet to be seen. Most feel his links to the Golden Lions and his underhanded tactics will hold him back. As it is though, MacGuire holds a special place in the Serenity’s heart, if not yet her court. His affable nature in polite company is a facade; he is duplicitous, able to morph between warming and chilling in a split second. His true nature is psychotic, some would even say evil, for sure he is vindictive and manipulative and likely he is a murderer and torturer. Yet, to meet him in polite company, such character traits would be the last on your mind.
