“Nothing cries out for compassion, concern, and danger as a fire engine screams by carrying firefighters ready to do battle without flinching from any demand.”

– Byron Pulsifer

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”

– John 15:13

“You want to know how big my balls are? My balls are bigger than two of your heads duct-taped together. I've been in the middle of shit that would make you piss your pants right now. Uptown, downtown, Harlem, Brooklyn. But there ain't no medals on my chest, assholes, 'cause I ain't no hero. I'm a fireman. We're not in the business of making heroes here. We're in the business of discovering cowards, 'cause that's what you are if you can't take the heat. You're a pussy, and there ain't no room for pussies in the FDNY. ”

– Tommy Gavin - Rescue Me

Overview

xxxxxTank got his nickname because he's so bullheaded at times. Well most of the time. The scary thing to this is when it comes to Fire Operations, he's more right than wrong. It's in his blood, it's his little slice of the world. He can understand Fire. All by instinct, coupled with science. He's a family man. Family comes before all else, though no one has tested that yet against his mortal enemy - Fire. His old man is s a Cop, and slightly confused at his son going FD. His Uncle Robert "Big Bob" from his mothers side died in the line of duty.

Tank is the way he is for a few reasons. Well, Gramps and Uncle Bob were hard chargers. We mentioned he's a Thorpe (DNA is a BITCH), but he's yet another in Fallcoast County with a secret. He's had some powers awakened in him that it takes concentration to keep under control. He had to move eventually. Be closer to the woods he protects, being at the wildland fire equipped station makes sense. He doesn't talk about what he can do, a friend or two knows. A select few of The Family.

In the end Tank's main goals are the taxpayers are kept safe, his brother and sister Fire Fighters and Medics keep safe, and his Family stays safe. If he has to bleed in raging pain to achieve that goal. So be it.
