dreams_dont_die: (In Dylan Hunt we trust)
Empaths & Telepaths

Yes: Your character is welcome to pick up anything in tags you think they'd hear. Your character will likely find a hell of a lot of trauma and unhappiness in there.

Fighting & Wounding

Fighting: Yes, with provisos: Dylan will, in the vast majority of situations, choose to try to talk rather than to fight.

Feel free to try to take him on, but be warned. The combination of his Heavy Gravity Worlder genetics and Argosy Special Operations training make him a fierce hand to hand fighter who can beat just about any human and some Nietzscheans. He's far stronger and heavier than an ordinary human, and he's got extremely quick reflexes.

Catch him armed (which he usually is), and you'll probably get whacked, shot, or stunned by his force lance. He's also highly trained in a variety of other weapons (including guns, swords, and spears).

Do not pick up his force lance and try to use it unless your character wants a very nasty electric shock from its security discharge.

Wounding: Yes: If a situation comes up in which he needs to be wounded, I'm fine with that. Trance will fix him up quick smart. She's used to it.

Physical Contact

Yes: Dylan is quite happy to be physically demonstrative. He'll have no issues with your character touching him or hugging him, especially if he knows them fairly well.

Especially not if they're a pretty woman. That goes double if he gets on with said woman and she wants to kiss him.


Talk to me: Dylan is a Paradine, a member of a highly advanced race with the ability to manipulate time and space. At his canon entry point, he is completely unaware of his abilities.

Trance describes the impression he gives to those who are temporally aware: I always felt that your presence had this timeless quality about it. That in some ways you were much older than I.

Feel free to have your character notice this, but if they would say something, please contact me so we can work out how best to play it.

Sex & Relationships

Sex: Yes, with provisos: Dylan almost never makes the first move, but he's easy to seduce if he trusts your character. He's usually up for one-night stands.

I'm personally uncomfortable with writing smut (though am happy to write steamy), but will take Dylan wherever IC interaction takes him. I'd prefer to fade to black or skim the details, but I do love writing snuggles and pillowtalk. Talk to me if it looks like this is going to happen.

If your character sleeps with him, his ship will be jealous. She's very attached to her Captain.

Relationships: Talk to me: Dylan will always love Sara, his fiancée from before the black hole took him. He considers relationships to be pretty much off his radar. To get him into a relationship will be difficult; canonically, even tying him down to a no strings attached relationship is rare.

OOC Permissions

Backtagging: Forever. I won't drop a thread unless you specifically want to.

Slowtimes: Absolutely. My timezone makes me slow, so I'm usually slowtiming myself. I can usually only fasttime on weekends.

Threadcrashing: Totally up for it if it works for IC reasons. Ask me first, though, as I'd prefer all parties involved to be on board.
dreams_dont_die: Argosy Special Operations Service's finest, my friends. (Trance - I HATE shots)
Wound and medical history

  • An old wound on the lower right hand side of his stomach from a gunshot received on his last mission for Argosy Special Operations

  • Magog claw wounds to his left shoulder, back, and right hip from episode 1.22. These wounds were so severe he nearly died from blood loss

  • A recently healed break to the lower right leg from episode 2.01

  • A wound to the upper right arm from debris from an explosion received in episode 2.05

  • Though not specified in canon, doubtless many other wounds from his time in Argosy Special Operations

He doesn't appear to any longer have any obvious scars from these wounds, probably as a result of Trance and her nanos.

Just before his canon entry point, he's been cured by Trance of a parasitic infection that works on the nervous system. The parasites were killed by nanobots that zapped them with an electric shock.


Though in linear time Dylan is 343, he did not age (as time was not passing for him) during the time he spent stuck in the black hole's event horizon, so he appears 40 years old. He's 6' 3" tall, muscular, and very fit thanks to regular exercise.

Dylan's mother was 100% Heavy Gravity Worlder, which is a sub-group of humans who have been genetically engineered to survive under high gravity conditions. He has all the traits of Heavy Worlders, even though he's only 50% one genetically.

These traits are a very heavy and dense skeleto-muscular system, giving him a high body mass and much more strength than an ordinary human. You can pick a Heavy Worlder by weighing them. His metabolism also runs faster than an ordinary human's. Infections spread faster if he's unfortunate enough to catch one his enhanced immune system can't handle, and he needs more food more regularly than an ordinary human.

He'll show as genetically engineered if you compare his genetics with a human's.

His father was also not human, but was a member of a highly advanced sentient race disguised as a human. As he currently has no idea about this in canon and he's doubtless received many medical scans, it's likely it won't show up in his scans.

His system's full of nanobots as they are regularly used for medical purposes in the Andromeda universe. The nanobots that boost his immune system can also be used to track him if your equipment is calibrated right.

He's got a sub-dermal communications implants behind his right ear.

If your character has to give him a hypo, he's the world's biggest baby about them (see icon). The High Guard's best and bravest, my friends.
