History

Personal History Having joined the marines straight out of school, Patrick Harper has always been a field grunt - and wanted nothing more.

Advancing through the ranks at a regular pace, Patrick stood out for his exceptional ability to adapt to any environment he was thrown into. Quickly snapped up for Force Recon training, he proved just as capable in the special forces as he did in line forces.

For the next ten years, he worked in covert operations, becoming a specialist operator and sniper. However, following an injury on a clandestine operation behind enemy lines - Harper was forced to be extracted. The nature of his injury disqualified him from further work in special operations for some time.

Taking this downtime as a chance to develop himself, Patrick - at this point a Staff Sergeant - elected to attend the Senior NCO training school. He spent the next nine months in this school, and completed it with high marks. This then entitled him to be entered into the promotion pool for Gunnery Sergeant.

It was around this time that he met a rather freshly promoted young marine called Richard Sharpe, who'd just become a Second Lieutenant through field promotion from Sergeant - having completed OCS. Harper was assigned to be his platoon sergeant to help the new Lieutenant. He found a kindred spirit in Sharpe, and the two soon became fast friends.

As they both advanced, they stayed together whenever possible.
