“There ought to be limits to freedom.”[1]

BARBECUE comes from a long line of people willing to fight and die for their beliefs. He grew up listening to stories about the Irish Republican Army, and loves a good opportunity to set fire to a dissident. He fervently believes open dissent weakens a country, and he’s willing to put to torch anything and anyone who would give “aid and succor to our enemies” by criticizing the US government.

BARBECUE is trained in the use of both backpack-type M2-2 and M2A1-7 flamethrowers and the M202A1 FLASH multishot incendiary rocket launcher, and he uses all of them with cold, businesslike efficiency whether he is igniting people or property. Off the battlefield, BARBECUE is quiet and withdrawn, and no attempts by his teammates to get him to lighten up have been successful.


Barbecue is protected head-to-toe by a deep red flame-resistant suit. A black helmet protects his face, with a silver-lined visor shielding his eyes. An armored black three-cylinder tank is strapped securely to his back, connected by a fuel hose to the nozzle gun of a customized old school M2A1-7 flamethrower. In the field he also carries a M202A1 FLASH multi-shot incendiary rocket launcher. Thick black boots protect his shins and feet. Barbecue keeps a massive fire-axe ready at hand, and seems dangerously close to using it on anyone at any moment.


Canonical/Pre-MUX/Theme History:

Barbecue joined the Army in an attempt to find a direction for his violent, antisocial tendencies. Thus far he has not been disappointed.

MUX History:

As the TP begins, Barbecue is in the Pit, looking for an opportunity to burn some hippies.

OOC Notes

On the MUX, SG Barbecue is a cross between the firemen in Fahrenheit 451 and Rorschach from Watchmen.
