Of course some of the races are not born with names but numbers. For these characters you register them with their number and then the nickname either their handler or fellows have given them. Neither the Jackal's nor Reapers are born with names. Rather they are born with a numbering system. Likewise no one working for the government will ever call them by name but only by number. The number is tattooed onto their arm for identification.
In the all registered Jackals should look like: A1277 (NERO)
And all Reapers should look like: F1 2-361 (DIMITER)Jackals:
First off we shall break down the Jackals registration numbers. No two Jackals have the same number and therefore you should be aware of this. In character registration there is a registry for all Jackals and Reapers numbers. Look there before naming your Reaper or JackalSpecies Identification
All Jackals have an A
at the star of their code. This alerts others that this is indeed a Jackal and not say a Reaper, Viscar, Yara, or other.Gen codes
The first number in the code stands for which generation a Jackal is. During the war there were 6 generations of Jackals. Depending on the gen means that their DNA differs from gen to gen. This often times means that 'cleaner' breeding stock was used to reproduce them or even that flaws from the older gens are corrected over time. Identity
The numbers after the first number stands for the Jackals personal identity number. It labels which individual it was from each generation. Say they were the 156th born from the second generation their number would be A2156.
Now that you have built your Jackals name you can think up a good nickname for him that he developed later on.Reaper:
Like with the Jackals the Reapers have a very similar naming system.Species Identification
Unlike Jackals all Reapers names start with FGeneration
After the F you will find a number separated from the others by a space. This is which gen they come from. Reaper generations range from gen 1 to 3. Much like the Jackals the newer the gen the less genetic flaws they have and the more refined they have become.Batch
Unlike Jackals Reapers have been refined in their coding system. The second number separated from the second section with a - tells you which batch from that generation the Reaper comes from. Batches range from anywhere between 1 to 500. Lets say a Reaper was the 26th batch in the 3rd generation his code so far would look like F3 26-Identity
Like Jackals the last number in the code is which number the Reaper was within the batch. Let us say using the Reaper above that he was the 427th Reaper born of this 26th batch they had made. His code would now look like this: F3 26-427
He is finaly named with his code now think up a wonderful nickname he calls himself.Female Jackals:
Female Jackals unlike the males are not named the same way because there are only six female Jackals that have ever been made.
The first female Jackal made was named Eve who unfortunatly is being used to create Reapers. Eve is also called the Reaper Mother since her DNA is what gave the UK the ability to make their super soldiers.
The second female Jackal ever made was created by the very man who invented the Jackals. He had created her to be his daughter and test if Jackals could learn human emotion. Her name is Bridgette Weisfelt.
Now the last few female Jackals all have very simple names they are as in order:
All female Jackals aside from Bridgette are currently being kept in compounds and can not be playable until further notice. Because Jackal Eve is too powerful she is never a playable option. Jackal Bridgette (daughter to Jackal Eve) is played by the Overlord.
