- "I want the eastern entrance covered and people laying covering fire from the rooftops. But make sure someone watches the flanks. We cannot let them through."

Pvt 2nd Class. Martin Pliskin was a Gear soldier during both the Pendulum Wars and the Locust War. He is the youngest child of David Pliskin and prominent member of the Algangi Militia, serving as their tactical officer.
Personality & Traits Edit
Out of the entire Quisling family, Martin is the one who resembles his father the most in physical appearance. They have almost identical bodily and facial structure, with Martin being described as his "father's clone" as an in-family joke. He wears a body suit modified with pieces of COG Armor such as knee-pads and the protective gel layer for added protective bonuses. The body suit he usually wears is light blue in color and hugs tightly to his body, particularly the torso to safeguard his internal organs and maximize their function.
A shrewd young mind, Martin is responsible for most of the militias tactics when engaging the Locust horde or Stranded insurgency. This role, while stressful at times, has made him popular due to the effectiveness of the plans he concocts. When planning he does with the entire picture in mind, assigning the tasks based on individual talents and not simply to fill a hole in the defenses. Less hard that his father and elder brother, Martin is a usually a quiet man when not commanding the militia.
