Conversions:

Fantasy:

Again, typical ranger. Drop the tech skills, and add a few things like Tracking and combat skills. Planetology becomes Naturalist, and he's probably Illiterate.

Modern and Near Future:

Planetology goes, probably turning into Naturalist, as he becomes a guide-type, expert in surviving in "the rough."


Howard is the man to see about a planet - any planet. He also shows a marked preference for tramping about the surface of a virgin world to the company of people in civilization. Despite his passion for the outdoors, he's also the This Way Up's Mr. Fixit and second vehicle driver/pilot. He shares Karyn MacMillan's non-violent views somewhat, but is not as vehement about them.


There's a more "professional" version of Howard, used for the XenoSolutions troubleshooting games: Anton Spinelli.
