Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries
SpecterAn opportunistic mercenary loyal only to whoever's footing his bill.
- The Ace: Specter graduated at the top of his class in the pilot program on Outreach for larger mercenary outfits to "sponsor" smaller ones.
- Player Character: The framing device is an aged Specter (post-Jihad) telling the tale of his exploits.
- Only in It for the Money: "We're here for the paycheck, not the politics."
Specter's Mercs (Various)There are many, many mercenaries Specter can recruit to his side.
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: The three female lancemates with lance commander credentials you can hire at the outset: Mustang, Goat, and Blaze, respectively.
- British Stuffiness: Beowulf.
- Brave Scot: Claymore, complete with imitation Sean Connery accent. Plunk him in a Highlander to complete the trope.
- Cowgirl: Mustang, the most expensive and highly skilled (at the outset) pilot you can hire, even has the cowgirl accent.
- Fiery Redhead: Blaze, a highly skilled potential secondary lance commander evokes it with her name, even.
- New Meat: Scooter's said to be "wet behind the ears".
- Street Smart: Rubius was "raised on the streets".
- Terse Talker: Spirit is rather quiet. Most evident during ready-op call. She just goes "Spirit. Ready-op."
CastleSpecter's mission control.
- Berserk Button: Towards the Clans. Read other tropes for her below for details.
- Conveniently an Orphan: Castle was orphaned by the Clan Invasion. The period the game takes place is about fifteen or so years after the Clan Invasion period, putting her in her thirties.
- Mission Control: The two constant voices in all (non-Solaris) missions are Specter and Castle.
- Norse by Norsewest: Castle hails from the Free Rasalhague Republic, which is basically Scandinavia IN SPACE, and it shows in her accent. Before the Clan Invasion, it was an entire former Draconis Combine march that eventually seceded with tacit approval from Luthien, but it was unfortunately right in the center of the Clan Invasion Corridor. The Clan Invasion reduced it to a scant handful of worlds, none of which are the original capital world of Rasalhague.
Aisa Thastus / FalconA fierce trueborn Jade Falcon Star Colonel whom Specter encounters on New Exford. Depending on how events play out, Specter can wind up taking her as a bondsman.
- Proud Warrior Race Guy: from possibly the most ardently Crusader of the Clans.
Duncan FisherSolaris announcer and commentator who loves almost everything about the games.
Colonel Burr and the Black CobrasA rival mercenary unit who often show up to get in Specter's way.
Peter Steiner-DavionYounger brother to Victor Steiner-Davion, and eventually the Archon of the Lyran Commonwealth after the ouster of his power-mad sister Katherine.
- Supporting Leader: For the Davion path in the latter parts of the game. You even fight alongside him in the finale.
Nondi SteinerSister to the illustrious Archon Katrina Steiner, who is Victor's and Peter's maternal grandmother, and a very high-ranked flag officer in the Lyran armed forces.
- Four-Star Badass: While her sister was known mainly for her political acumen, Nondi is a military officer through and through.
- My Country, Right or Wrong: Partly denial, partly nationalism, this is why she was loyal to her mentally unstable great niece Katherine (who fancied herself "Katrina"). She goes down fighting against you and Peter in the Davion path.
