Have you been banned in the last 3 months?
If so, why?
How familiar are you with command positions?
I’ve had plenty of experience both on low pop and high pop, I can handle myself in the CIC alone though prefer discussing plans with all the other CIC members before going through.
I know to verify radio callouts and what to tell the marines groundside. I can handle myself and the op during an admin event which made everyone hostile to me and got me killed 3/4 times later on [Was a great time]
I know how to micro manege squads and get the point across to the marines with pretty good results.
I’ve got plenty of JTAC experience on both sides and can mostly tell apart good and bad OB calls.
I know how to run a squad from groundside and keep the morale of the marines up while fighting.

Why did your character decide to become the CO of a ship?
After serving in the USCM for a while and being a captain for a whole year, she noticed a possibility of becoming a Commanding Officer. So eagered to learn and become one of the youngest Commanding Officers USCM ever had she took off trying her best to reach the position, doing some brave manouvers during every op and volonteering to lead the marines from the front.
How did your character attain the position of CO?
After the trial period Candace was reviewed positevily by the USCM command, thanks to her merit and questionable at best but succesful manouvers and became the Commanding Officer of a small vessel which allowed her to learn how to run a ship fully on her own without any advise from a higher officer, the vessel was tasked with scouting for the most part, barely deploying for emergency response or defense due to the low personnel count on board, for Candace however it was a perfect training ground only to later on just like any other Command Officer to be moved to a bigger vessel, in Clark’s case the USS Almayer. Or so thats what she though.
Provide a short story of your CO.
When do you believe it’s appropriate to pardon a prisoner?
An appropriate time for a pardon is when the operation cannot continue without the prisoner in question and the crimes are minor enough or the need so high that it may be neglected, however the crimes which CO’s may pardon cannot be higher than “Major” under the Marine Law.
Give some examples of when you would or would not use pardon.
I would use a pardon if lets say RO ordered guns from requisition that come from the black marked as long as it was the only way to save marines and or the entire operation, I would use a pardon on a weapon specialist that killed a marine on accident while trying to perform their duties and help the operation to the best of their abilities.
I would not pardon Private Bowlcut for beating their Squad Leader to crit using a table or a chair, or better yet shooting him.
When do you believe it’s appropriate to use a Battlefield Execution?
I believe Battlefield Executions should be held when the offender sabotages the operation in any way, be it sabotaging critical parts of the Almayer or murdering important figures like command or squad members. For example Corporate Liason John Bowlcut got a team together to sabotage the operation by breaking the CIC, REQ and OB. It is a great time to remind yourself of the kick your sidearm holds and the Liason of the stopping power USCM members have.
Give some examples of when you would or would not use Battlefield Execution.
I would not use a Battlefield Execution if Liason Bowlcut gave me forms to sign even if he bugged me for half the pre op.
I would not execute a marine that shoved me on accident or decided to make jokes of CIC staff, while disrespectful I’d take it and continue with whatever I had to do or lecture him.
