The Lincoln-Washington Battalion (Fritz):
Commanding Officer (2nd Company): Aleksandar (Alex) Antov
Bulgarian immigrant from Boston, 24 years of age.
An aspiring writer, Aleksandar was a small boy when his family arrived at America. Growing up poor, on the ghettos of Boston he quickly became disillusioned with the false promises that America offered. Seeking opportunity elsewhere brought him to the Lincoln-Washington Battalion and to the front lines of the Spanish Civil War. Blessed with the gift of prose and the natural ability to write he finds himself as the commanding officer more due to his ability to spin both the good and the bad over any actual experience in the field.
Senior Officer (1st Platoon): 2nd Lt. Vasilie Serban
Romanian American from New York, 29 years of age.
The Serban family has always been involved in low lever crime and thuggery both in the old country and now in New York. Seeking a different life Vasilie enlisted in the armed forces regretting that he was too young to participate in the glories of the Great War. Discharged from the US Army due to ethnic conflicts with his senior officer Vasilie now finds himself as a volunteer in the Lincoln-Washington Battalion.
Junior Officer: Sergeant John Sarantakos
Greek American from New York, 25 years of age.
As a tug operator on the Hudson River and New York Seaport John has had much time to think, and be influenced by the new ideas of Communism. Seeing the plight of the working class first hand, and the oppression of the Capitalists and authoritarian state power structure he has become disillusioned with the current state of the world. Enlisting with the Lincoln-Washington Battalion his strong beliefs and charismatic natures combined with being a stout Trotskyist has quickly pushed him to the command position as a junior officer despite the suspicion of his senior officers.
Junior Officer: Sergeant Marku Albescu
Romanian American from Boston, 25 years of age.
Tercio de Doña María de Molina y Marco de Bello - The Requetes Defenders (yours truly)
Commanding Officer (1st Company) Captain Montego Vasquez.
A former commander in the Guardia Civil, in the early days of the war he fought with his unit against the red militias. Now that the Guardia has been given a back seat to the National Army, he asked for a transfer. Although an experienced officer, due to his age he's been relegated to the "quiet" Aragon sector. A Castillian of average build, but getting on in years.
Senior Officer (1st Platoon), Alfarez (2nd Lt.) Cipriano Ortega.
A former University Professor (theology) at the University of Salamanca, Orteg rallied his students to fight against the Communists in the streets of Salamanca in the early days of the way. Afterwards, he received his commission in a Requetes unit. He can be a bit aloof and cerebral, and is often called El Profesor by his men. Average build, 29 years old.
Senior NCO, Sargento Seccion Loredo Guzman
A 24 year old ex-theology student from Estremadura, Guzman dropped out of seminary to fight for the church and country. His men know him a kind but determined soldier who puts the safety of his men first. A previous student of El Profesor, he gets along with his Alfarez very well.
Junior NCO, Sargento Dario Rodriguez
A poor tenant farmer from just outside Quinto de Ebro, he was drafted into the army but found that military life suited him. Short from a meager diet, but full of fight, he often comments to his men that he's never eaten so well as this past year in the army. At 40 years old, one of the oldest fighting men in the unit, but working the fields every day has made him strong and steady and he never complains.
Junior NCO, Sargento Gonzalo Lopez
Sargento Lopez comes from a family of Carlist fighters and veterans, and was a member of the requetes Tercio before the first shots of the war were fired. In peacetime Lopez never sought out a leadership roll in the organization, but with his years of service he was quickly promoted up to Sargento. Originally from Andalucia, this tall, thin soldier of 39 years had been nick-named "Abuelo" (grandfather) by the men, despite being a year younger than Sargento Rodriguez. The men respect his years of experience.
