How they roll – Mikey Wesson


While I prep for the next episode to release in the March hiatus, each day this week I’m going to release the RPG stats on the crew and ship.  I’m going to be using the Cortex classic (or the “Cortex 1.5” as I like to call it) system described in the Supernatural and Serenity RPG book (especially the Big Damn Heroes book).  Once the new Firefly RPG corebook releases this year, I’ll see how much can be adapted into Cortex 2 (or “cortex plus” if you want to use the proper naming).

More commonly referred to as ‘Patch’ by his crew-mates, observation has uncovered the doctor’s name to be “Michael Wesson”.  Although not a popular moniker, it is not uncommon either; the Ministry is still investigating all records of persons by that name.  Thus far, none fit this individual’s profile nor show any signs attending a medical school able to train a person of his proficiency.  It is highly likely that his name is a fake, and judging by his drinking habits and tendency to self-harm, his real name hides something unbearable to his conscience.
