Sonder Karso (also referred to as "Lefty", later "Face") was a Human male born on Texakus. Raised in a pathological family, he was forced to become independent early in his life.
He had chosen to join the Confederate Military and became associated with it for the remainder of his life. Initially a regular confederate marine, he quickly qualified to an elite mecha-unit, the Stormbringers. He actively participated in the Hegemony Wars, Siege of Texakus being his baptism of fire. Due to his undeniable bravery and some unexpected circumstances, he became a sort of national hero. He served in the CMC until the last year of the conflict, when he suffered grievous injuries and was forced to a temporary retirement.
However, despite marrying Allana Delban and conceiving a child in the meantime, he did not leave the military. On the contrary, he chose to join the Confederate Navy after recovering. As a result of his innate determination and some favourable traits, he swiftly climbed through the ranks. In the years immediately preceding the New Machine Purge, he initiated the Warmonger Project. During the war, he participated in numerous missions, including the Mission to Darcco. Nevertheless, while being a competent strategist, he eventually committed a fatal blunder, allowing a large fleet of the Mechatron to invade the capital system of the Confederacy of Iliard. In the ensuing chaos, he had ultimately decided to pay the solemn price for that mistake and sacrificed himself and his flagship, the Warmonger, in order to even the extreme odds he had caused.
Personality and traits
Talents and abilities
- His theme song, as chosen by the author, is Explode by Damageplan.
- The most notable traits and beliefs of Karso are based on the author's. However, some aspects of personality, his social background and appearance are entirely different, partially to avoid unwanted self-insertion (which the author thinks may lead to highly despisable Mary Sue-type character), but also to better support his role of an anti-hero.
