Pfc. Laurence Slayback

Laurence Slayback was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to a lower-middle class family.. Through highschool he always had higher-than-average grades and graduated at the top of his class. He took his chance at joining the war effort. In Pittsburgh, the only choices he had after graduating highschool was working in a steel mill or joining the fight. His father was an abusive man, making his choice all the more easy.

After joining the war effort he took linguistics classes and learned how to communicate in basic Japanese. He couldn't read a novel to you or anything, but he has a firm grasp on the Japanese language and how to get information from villagers and soldiers alike.

While in basic training and learning to speak with the locals, Lars was approached with an offer to join the 1st Parachute Battalion of the United States Marine Corps, or "Paramarines". He whole-heartedly accepted and went off to training. The 1st Parachute Battalion was picked, along with a unit of Marine Raiders to join the 1st Marine Division for the assault on Guadalcanal.

He's never been known as the nicest guy but he likes to try and make friends. Most people have a hard time getting to know Lars because he has a tendency to hold a knife to their throats. However, anyone who actually makes an effort finds him to be quite a loyal friend who will pull their asses out of the fire.
