Lewis Conway

Lewis Conway was originally a Sergeant in Tech-Com’s retired Alpha Platoon, now a Lieutenant and infantry commander of the entire First Platoon. Often seen to have a polite and easy-going personality, adopting of an honest lifestyle. He has an unwavering sense of humor, almost never failing to lighten the mood or come back with a clever retort. Despite his lenient nature replique montre, he holds self-discipline in high regard to himself and others. In stark contrast to his non-combative personality, he sustains a serious, detached mindset when on the field replique montre, with a rationalized focus on organization and tactical awareness. While both dominant or reliant when need be, he is known to disobey orders when they conflict with his own ideals.

Physical DescriptionEdit

Lewis stands at 5’11″ with a fairly average build. His skin is pale, contrasted with steely bluish-gray eyes and dark brown hair replique montre chanel, which is kept cut at a medium length. Most of the time Conway seems quite sleep deprived, with bags below his eyes and a stern, yet distant expression upon his face. Perhaps his most defining feature is his heavy stubble, of which he never seems to shave. Lewis is almost always seen wearing his Tech-Com uniform and bloodband, signifying his constant dedication to the Resistance. When not in uniform, he is likely to be wearing a thick brown flannel shirt and faded black jeans, and on occasion a chrome Rolex watch. On recons and special operations, Conway has been seen wearing a black knit balaclava. In whatever he is wearing, he tends to keep to a neat and tidy appearance, if time permits.

EquipmentEdit

Concerning weaponry, Conway tends to remain light in his armaments. He favors a light plasma rifle: either the M25A1, M30A1, or M54A2 Recon Variant. If such plasma weaponry were not available, his preferred ballistic weapon is an assault or semi-automatic rifle, allowing for versatility on the field. His sidearm of choice is the Colt 1911, being a gift he received during a massive raid on Bunker 32. Being his most prized possession, his Colt M1911A1 Series 80 is kept in as pristine condition as time allows, tucked securely in his leather quick-draw hip holster. Aside from firearms, Conway carries a 5″ serrated steel dagger on his person at all times, hidden within a makeshift sheathe in his right boot.

BiographyEdit

ChildhoodEdit

Born on August 24th, 2002 inside a fallout shelter within the town of Belmont, California. Lewis’ mother died when he was young, left to be raised by his father. He had a relatively peaceful childhood, growing up within the shelter which functioned as if it were a pre-war time capsule. Much like children before the war, he received a formal high school education, and was known to quickly grasp concepts with eagerness to apply them. At a young age he befriended a girl his age named Leslie, who soon became a close friend and lover as his years in Belmont went by.

An interpretation of Lewis in his teen years, pictured after his return with a hunting party.

Leaving BelmontEdit

At the age of twenty, Lewis decided to leave Belmont along with Leslie, choosing to join the local caravan route as both guards and merchants, traveling from South San Francisco to the Mojave Desert. They often traveled from outpost to outpost, buying and selling various supplies as they went along. Life in the caravan was difficult, though Lewis picked up many survival skills, and gained combat experience throughout his travels. The trek through the Mojave was often quite dangerous, the open plains offering little shelter against Skynet forces. Along the way, Lewis improved his skill in cartography, collecting and creating maps of the areas which surrounded him.

Battle of BelmontEdit

At the age of twenty-three, Lewis and his girlfriend had traveled back to Belmont to find his father terminally ill, determined to die from cancer. Only weeks after their arrival, Lewis proposed to Leslie with a ring he had traded for in the caravan, becoming engaged to his childhood sweetheart. Months passed by with relative peace. During this time, Lewis gained the position of overseeing the bunker’s external affairs, chosen for his experience in travel and trade. However, everything changed when an aerostat detected a hunting party, causing multiple drone patrols to converge on Belmont at once. In a desperate effort, Lewis was elected commander of the Belmont militia, and led the defense against the waves of Skynet forces while the settlement was evacuated. The militia was eventually overpowered despite Lewis’ tactical effort, turning the evacuation into a genocide; both his father and Leslie murdered in the chaos. With nowhere to turn, Conway traveled slowly south along the California coast, eventually reaching the Los Angeles resistance four years later. Lewis, pictured some moments before the Battle of Belmont.

Arriving at Tech-ComEdit

Upon arriving to the camp, Lewis reunited with his friend Dante, a member of the Belmont militia. Along with Dante, he befriended others such as Fenris the bartender. He soon met Corporal Shaw, who eventually taught him on the use of plasma weaponry, as well as survival skills and tactics. With Dante and Fenris, Conway established ‘Belmont Station’, a small outpost separate from the bunker which quickly became a hotspot for Tech-Com operations. Eventually, Conway’s efforts were recognized by John Connor, leading him to be recruited into Tech-Com’s Alpha division under the watch of Gabriel Shaw. At the time, Conway was known to be one of the quickest recruited into Tech-Com, only being at the camp for a matter of two weeks before he was selected. Months later, on a recon, Conway was separated from the camp and assaulted by bandits, listed as MIA a month before he managed to return. After his reinstatement, he became a dedicated soldier in Alpha, the squad being the only family he had.

About a month after resuming his Tech-Com career, Lewis befriended a young refugee by the name of Sarah Turner. With an aspiration to join the ranks of Alpha, Sarah was closely watched by Lewis as a possible recruit, sharing a close bond which inevitably became romantic. On September 23rd 2030, Lewis proposed to Sarah with the same silver ring he had given to Leslie, effectively making her his wife. Despite the lack of an official ceremony, Sarah still took on Lewis’ surname, therefore making her Sarah Conway. Months after their union, they met a thirteen year old girl in the med-bay named Alex. Her lack of parental guidance, as well as an apparent proneness to accidents convinced the couple to adopt her.

Several months later, around the time Alpha was dissolved into the main Infantry Platoon, Sarah had decided to divorce Lewis, finding relations stale as they both became busier with Tech-Com affairs. Sarah returned to using her maiden name, while Alex continued using the surname Conway as her responsibility became split between the two.

March 11th, 2031. On an extended reconnaissance mission to a Castaic Dam, roughly 50 miles north-west of Los Angeles, Conway and his team failed to rendezvous with a designated team from Bakersfield. After a week of careful waiting, watching, and vigilant searching, the Bakersfield team was forced to return to their outpost. and removed from their positions in Tech-Com.

Post-HiatusEdit

An attempt at gathering his own militia, The Highlanders, was an inevitable failure due to a lack of planning and resources. Shortly after Lewis was reunited with Sarah, she began a slow descent into insanity, subsiding to hallucinations and fits of schizophrenia. The faction dissolved with her sanity, drawing its members back to the shelter of Tech-Com’s encampment, where Lewis soon disappeared once again.

Months later, Conway was found imprisoned in the remnants of a destroyed Tech-Com bunker, overrun with SkyNET scouting drones. A battle between a Bakersfield caravan and the bulk of SkyNET’s stationed units had apparently taken place, leaving a Tech-Com reconnaissance team to discover the ex-Sergeant and the spoils of the caravan. Conway was soon reinstated into Tech-Com as private under Yankee squad, detaching his ties with Sarah Turner as he became determined to start anew.

Will this Automatic Watch Winder work with my Rolex Watch

Why use watch winder?

I was curious who this very generous woman was as I opened the boxes. Though I did not know what bond I had with her, I was nevertheless thankful for every item in the boxes. A box full of wonderful books was sincerely appreciated by several avid readers. I opened the last one and knew instantly what cast our relationship. A manila envelope laid underneath the top flaps. Written in gold letters was the following replique montre rolex, « In Memory of Capt John F. (Hans) Kurth. » Its contents caused one of the most emotional moments I have endured.

I first came to a letter written by John Aleksander Kurth, son of Captain Kurth. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for him. I answer, « Yes John replique montre, everyone enjoys the stuff, thank you »! There was another well written letter by a young man named Aden Webb, age 4. He writes that he is best buds as well as cousins with John Aleksander. I could not imagine a better friend to have. The dominoes that Aden picked out are a favorite of many of the soldiers. We play a game called « Bones » with them on the picnic table outside of our rooms.

Holly Webb, your letter brightened my day. I thank you so much for taking the time to send a message to me. I have been receiving some flack because of what I write; your support is welcomed. CPT Kurth was a very special man who is loved by many, respected by all, and must never be forgotten. You mentioned in the letter about how he would not buy a shirt, but would gladly lay down $40 for a 2 pound steak. We are talking about a man that wore a Rolex watch to the field. The quality of a product was a characteristic that he understood and appreciated.

I have been approached by wonderful people who are all connected by their affection for Captain Kurth. I can tell by all of the correspondence that he was surrounded by individually beautiful people with admirable character. Thank you so much for your generosity. As for the « little taste of home », the homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies were delicious. We savored every mouth-watering morsel and dipped them in milk to enhance the full bodied flavor. We appreciate your kindness with all sincerity.

For all Moms out there. If you have a son or daughter in sector, send him or her some homebaked Chocolate Chip Cookies. Throw a couple of extra hand fulls of chips in, and maybe some walnuts. I believe in the healing power of chocolate. Beware though. It was 114 degrees yesterday. Chocolate cookies will make it, Chocolate bars will not.

Long sounding lines were sunk in the side walls

sal, which he accepted. The Canadian put on his sea-costume, and was ready as soon as his companions. When IWC watches discount Ned was dressed, I re-entered the drawing-room replique montre, where the panes of glass were open, and, posted near Conseil replique montre, I examined the ambient beds that supported the Nautilus. Some instants after, we saw a dozen of the crew set foot on the bank of ice, and among them Ned Land replique montre chanel, easily known by his stature. Captain Dolce Gabbana watches discount Nemo was with them. Before proceeding to dig the walls, he took the soundings, to be sure of working in the right direction. Long sounding lines were sunk in the side walls, but after fifteen yards they were again Audemars Piguet watches discount stopped by the thick wall. It was useless to attack it on the ceiling-like surface, since the iceberg itself measured more than 400 yards in height. Captain Nemo then sounded the lower surface. There ten yards of wall separated us from the water, so great was the thickness of the Burberry watches discount ice-field. It was necessary, therefore, to cut from it a piece equal in extent to the waterline of the Nautilus. There were about 6,000 cubic yards to detach, so as to dig a hole by which we could descend to the ice-field. The work had Chopard watches discount begun immediately and carried on with indefatigable energy. Instead of digging round the Nautilus which would have involved greater difficulty, Captain Nemo had an immense trench made at eight yards from the port-quarter. Then the men set watches

to work simultaneously with their screws on several points of its circumference. Presently the pickaxe attacked this compact matter vigorously, and large blocks were Emporio Armani watches discount detached from the mass. By a curious effect of specific gravity, these blocks, lighter than water, fled, so to speak, to the vault of the tunnel, that increased in thickness at the top in proportion as it diminished at the base. But that mattered little, so long as the lower part grew thinner. After Ferrari watches discount two hours hard work, Ned Land came in exhausted. He and his comrades were replaced by new workers, whom Conseil and I joined. The second lieutenant of the Nautilus superintended us. The water

seemed singularly cold, but I Hublot watches discount soon got warm handling the pickaxe. My movements were free enough, although they were made under a pressure of thirty atmospheres. When I re-entered, after working two hours, to take some food and rest, I found a perceptible Mont Blanc watches discount difference between the pure fluid with which the Rouquayrol engine supplied me and the atmosphere of the Nautilus, already charged with carbonic acid. The air had not been renewed for forty-eight hours, and its vivifying Panerai watches discount qualities were considerably enfeebled. However, after a lapse of twelve hours, we had only raised a block of ice one yard thick, on the marked surface, which was about 600 cubic yards! Reckoning that it took twelve hours to accomplish Vacheron Constantin watches discount this much it would take five nights and four days to bring this enterprise to a satisfactory conclusion. Five nights and four days! And we have only air enough for two days in the reservoirs! taking into account, said Ned, even if we get out of this infernal prison, we rolex watches shall also be imprisoned under the iceberg, shut out from all possible communication with the atmosphere. True enough! Who could then foresee the minimum of time patek philippe watches necessary for our deliverance? We might be suffocated before the Nautilus could regain the surface of the waves? Was it destined to perish in this bell ross watches ice-tomb, with all those it enclosed? The situation was terrible. But everyone had looked the danger in the face, and each was determined to do his duty to the last.

000 Of Goods Stolen At The Plaza Hotel

Princess Arwa Al Qassimi, 25, a young royal from Dubai, had booked the whole 12th floor of the hotel for her and her friends. (Must be nice!) But the peril began when the princess exited her suite for the day. You know where this is going.
