He speaks a tiny amount of German, and a minuscule amount of Afrikaans. He prefers to take black and white photographs and low saturation colour over standard, normal or high saturation colour photographs. He currently uses a Canon EOS 400D with a 16-35mm f/2.8 MK II

A young Caucasian man of the age of 19, born in South Africa, who's ultimate dream in life was to be a war photographer, signed up for active combat service in the hopes that this would give him an edge in his desired profession.
His short brown hair messy, his eyes are a deep piercing blue, a scar runs from the base of his right nostril down to the centre of his upper lip and his nose looks as if it's been broken at least once.

His expression is weary of the world, and when he speaks to those he is unfamiliar with, his eyes seem distant and cold. Although expected to shoot a gun, he is often found with only a pistol and his precious dSLR camera held to his eye. His military satchel bag has many patches sewn crudely onto it, and contains his water, food and camera supplies. On his wrist is a small brass watch with leather straps, a family heirloom.

His armour, or rather lack of it, consists of a black bullet proof vest. On the back is a hastily stencilled message of "Let's go get some Bang-Bang!". On his helmet, the word "Stain" has been carved into the front. His uniform looks as if it belongs more to a non-combat unit, what with his black button up shirt and matching trousers. His boots are scuffed and it is clear he spends time working on pleasing to look at lacing, although the handle of his combat knife can be seen sticking out the top them. Oddly, he carries a spoon around in his back pocket.

He is often taunted because of his somewhat ironic last name.

Primary Weapon: Magnum Desert Eagle 50. AE, used with hollow-point bullet heads.

As a photographer first, combatant second, Pvt. Hope will avoid shooting with his gun as much as possible. However, when his life is in enough danger for him to notice, he will lower his camera long enough to draw this excessive calibre pistol and fire. Given to him by his uncle, he treats this weapon well.

Secondary Weapon: Knife, hollowed and filled with mercury.

Again, a weapon passed on from his uncle who's father used this in times of war. Hollowed and filled with mercury, this helps the weapon hit home with greater velocity, while the metal still retains it's original strength. The metal has been tempered to resist heat and acid, although it is not indestructible to severe force or impact. Pvt. Hope can be seen sharpening this knife from time to time.
