Iancu Koertig stands just under two meters tall, shoulders square and chest puffed out. If he didn’t look so uptight and confident, he might seem little more than ordinary Dencourt, or some might still say he does.
His eyes are striking upon closer inspection revealing steel blue against the light brown color of Iancu’s hair and his slightly tanned skin. His face is oddly out of sync, with feature seeming to clash. On his left side of his face he has start of feint scarring from a spin cycle through a coral reef that traveling down to his left arm and around to his back in a broken, jagged path.
His athletic build fills out the tight under-layer he wears but the loosely fitted coat and typical half rolled sleeves would hide the extent of his physical condition if it weren’t for the open front revealing sculpted abs through under-armor athletic shirt and a tight standard issue RDG T-shirt.
His left arm throws the symmetry of his dress, with a long dark sleeve that runs down to form a glove around his hand as well. Anyone familiar with the exotic Dencourt fighting forms will instantly recognize it. During his off time, Iancu often wears clothing emblemed with the crest of House Davion or tees depicting famous Solaris VII fighters and their mechs.
Iancu is rarely without his cross-draw autopistol strapped across his waste nestled against a vibrodagger and simplistic combat knife. Balancing out his waist sits a small pouch and assortment of trowing knives. At the small of his back rests his Dencourt issue Shock-glove, compressed into ‘stowed’ form, and attached to its holster. A quick slip of his hand into the finger holes and a tight clench later, the armored shock-glove is released and wrapped around the users hand and forearm.
In battles on foot, Iancu wears a concealed upper body armor designed to protect against both ballistic and laser weaponry. In addition to his autopistol, a sonic stunner may also be seen on his person. For matters of required stealth, Iancu also packs has dark clothing that’s relatively form fitting and silent during movement, as well as night vision goggles and an assortment of nondescript clothing.
Upon entrance into the Royal Dragoon Guard, Iancu was dispossessed and without title. After Easy Company returned from Tripoli, he joined them just before their deployment to Misery. There he was assigned to a Rifleman RFL-3N whose previous pilot, Cpt. Harrington, had received crippling injuries from the assassin Serena Marquand, preventing his continued service as a mech pilot.
In battle at Marcou’s Pass, Iancu piloted it for the first time scoring to kills on enemy aerospace fighters and coring the Kuritan Company Commander’s Phoenix Hawk, preventing his escape and allowing the RDG to capture its Tek Battlecom computer system from the PHX-1, including the current cypher codes for the Kuritan battle net.
The current status of the Rifleman’s ownership is unclear but it is understood that while Harrington is unable to preform due to his nerve injuries, Iancu Koertig has been granted position as its current pilot. He has taken the liberty to have the the Imperator A medium class autocannons and medium laser stripped and replaced with 2 Particle Projection Cannons and five additional heat sinks.
