Appearance/Background/Personality:
Rico is a working-class grunt and a gung-ho defender of the Arda System. His sense of Nationalism runs pretty deep, as does his playful, competitive, rough-housing nature. Nothing he likes better than a physical test of skill: mano-a-mano. Locally, Rico has a reputation for being the kind of man you want beside you in a battle….and the kind of man you wish would go away after the battle. While soldiers from the Arda System would relish to opportunity to fight beside him, Alliance soldiers consider him too much of a loose-cannon to trust him with responsibility. They may even try to unload him onto an unsuspecting convoy, or battle group just to rid themselves of him. Either way, he is one of the base’s best on-the-ground combat personnel.

Since the system joined the side of The Rebel Alliance, things have changed at the base on Arda I. Rico is self-taught when it comes to physical skill and marksmanship, so “structured training” under the Alliance has been difficult for him. He’d just as soon go out and blast some wharf rats or wrestle out in the courtyard to sharpen his skills. Target practice and obstacle courses try his patience. He can give his superiors a difficult time when it comes to, what he considers, impractical training for fighting the Empire and space pirates. After all, he thinks, he's been doing this longer than they have. Rico enjoys nothing better than breaking up the monotony of barracks life by boozing it up, womanizing (when the opportunity presents itself), and red-necking it out in nature. “Better to burn out than to fade away!”, as he says.

Humans start with 100 XP. With 10 Duty traded for more XP, that's a total of 110. Yet it seems that you only spent 90? Also, using 100 XP I think the build would be better if you took Brawn 4 and left Willpower at 2, with 10 XP from Duty used to either improve Ranged or take talents.

Humans start with 110x, per RAW (AofR, p.57). Suggested changes look good, though. I wanted to get a few options out there and get feedback. Thanks.
