History

 

Gael Greene grew up on a farm outside of Kilkenny, Ireland. There, he worked hard, played hard and got a decent education thanks to his mother being a teacher. In the 1990s he joined the Irish Defense Force (IDF) and signed up for the Irish Army through the Officer Cadet Apprentice Training Program. By 1997, he was an infantry Lieutenant based out of Belfast, Ireland, operating for the Irish government. Shorty after his commissioning, he married his longtime girlfriend, Aoife, who born them a son, Conor in 1999. With the cost in Belfast too high to live in for a young army officer, Aoife and Conor temporarily moved in with Gael's parents in Kilkenny.  Sadly, the year 2000 would destroy all that Gael had.

In 2000, the Soltan Star Empire invaded Earth. Belfast was one of the cities that came under immediate suborbital bombardment. Most all of the military units in Belfast were obliterated. Gael survived, but was forced to become the site commander when all other officers were killed in the bombardment. Although Gael attempted to contact his wife to warn her and assure her he was okay, the phone lines were down and as such, wasn't able to contact them.  For the next three months, "Captain Greene" became the savior of Belfast, arming militias of civilians and teenagers who survived the bombardment and attack and defending against hordes of Soltan soldiers that had taken over Belfast. Thanks to hard work ethic, he was able to lead his militias by example. Although there were many militia losses in the ground campaign, Captain Greene kept most of the Soltan forces occupied in the city, preventing them from getting at other neighboring towns and boroughs.

After months of dogged fighting, Gael's militias were finally given support by several squads of British troops; a welcome reprieve if ever there was one. The leader of the British contingent stated that Gael was 'lucky' the British deemed Belfast 'necessary' to actually send in British troops to help save them. Not liking said officer, Gael still knew he had this one window of opportunity to check on his family in Kilkenny and turned over command to the British officer.

 

The route to Kilkenny was painfully slow process (due to dense Soltan patrols and combat everywhere around him) for Gael. After several days, he finally made it to his parents bombed-out farm to find that at least three dozen people and neighbors, as well as his parents, wife and child, were long dead in what seemed to be a 'last stand' location amidst a pile of old boulders on the edge of the property. It was obvious the Soltans killed all of them, most likely within the first week of the invasion. Gael was beside himself with grief.  After burying them and having to fight to get back to Belfast, Gael arrived to a city under siege; the British troops that he'd left in charge, as Gael eventually found out, abandoned Belfast within 36 hours after Gael left to go to Kilkenny. His ragtag remnants of the Belfast militia was less than 120 men, women and teenagers (down from 410 when he left). At that rate, they'd be overrun in days.  Gael, no longer worried about military morality, decided it was time to fight dirty.

In several dozens unique and notoriously immoral actions, Captain Greene used radiation, airborne pathogens, chemical weapons and 'dirty' tactical nuclear weapons to take the fight to the Soltans. By August 2000, the Soltan forces had dwindled to less than 100 left to defend their base. Using their last tactical 'dirty bomb', sent in with a suicidal teen militia woman, the Belfast militia obliterated the remaining Soltans and took over Belfast in the name of Ireland, all days before the Soltans finally retreated en masse from Earth to the far side of Mars.

Captain Greene was promoted to Major Greene and was lauded an Irish war hero and leader...at least for the first year after the Soltan retreat.

As information came out about the immoral and inhuman tactics that Major Greene and his militias did, the more the public began to realize that Greene wasn't so much a hero as rather a villain. Lands in and about Belfast were saturated with radiation and toxic waste; survivors were exposed to deadly pathogens, dying miserably in hospitals after long painful illnesses finally caused them to die. Hundreds of historical buildings, treasures, libraries and legendary artifacts were all destroyed as a result of Major Greene's actions. The politicians latched onto this information and created a movement to criminally convict Major Greene and dozens of his lieutenants and followers. Thanks to a timely extraction by a band of ex-militia personnel, Major Greene and his newly criminalized ex-militia leaders were able to escape Ireland.

For years, they hid in the island nation of Oceania, where a unique military socialism movement was building. As such, the leader of Oceania, Governor Goldstein, readily accepted Major Greene and his expatriates and allowed them to stay as long as they liked...so long as they helped train and teach his military officers how they were able to defeat the Soltans.  As such, Greene and his expatriates not only lived a decent life in Oceania, they thrived. They learned new trades and skills; became a part of Oceania's defense operations and eventually became consultants for all other military contracts and manufacturing occurring in Oceania with other nations. There, Greene was able to find his 2nd wife, Roisin, who also happened to be from Ireland working in Oceania at their fishery. Together, they had two children. Greene was the happiest he could be.

In 2017, Greene read about the new movement in Ireland that was trying to take back its national autonomy. Governor Goldstein initially offered Greene a chance to be a liaison to the new rebel leader who called himself "Taoiseach". In their first meeting, Major Greene and Taoiseach hit if off as if they had been friends their whole life. Taoiseach believed exactly as Major Greene believed and wanted nothing more than to bring Major Greene (who was still considered a hero by many of the downtrodden of Ireland) back to Ireland and help lead the new movement based on Taoiseach's 'manifesto'. After reading the manifesto, Major Greene couldn't sign up fast enough. Greene worked a deal with Oceania to obtain exclusive military equipment rights as well as allows those of Greene's expatriates to return to Ireland and take up the flag of the "Eire Arm" (Taoiseach's new army) and take back Ireland 'for the people'.  Nonetheless to say, not only did Greene get his old militia troops back, he got several dozen volunteers from Oceania and around the world to immediately join their cause.

Greene's wife and children still live in Oceania (where its safe) and visits them at least a dozen or two days a year.  His oldest son, Cian, although still too young, wants nothing more than to be a soldier in the Eire Arm when he finally comes of age.

Today, Major Greene is the 2nd in command of the Eire Arm, with Taoiseach as the leader.  Several hundred soldiers make-up this band of makeshift soldiers, all of which look as Major Greene with awe and admiration. He is a great leader and a kind man, but when pushed or questioned, he can become as dark and scary as he was during those final months he was fighting dirty against the Soltans. He has never apologized for his actions in Belfast during the invasion and hates the Soltans with every fiber of his being.
