Right-Step Alternate Universe - Engineer

Character Details

Learned to engineer in order to catch his family's enemies off-guard, and also for when bear-fighting started getting too monotonous. Names his wrenches but not his buildings. Enjoys standing behind a sentry, repairing it, and smiling in a “friendly” (read: bloodthirsty) manner at all who approach (actually, that’s not very different to canon…).

It's odd where life leads people. Engineer always figured that if he was to leave Siberia it would be to chase a career in literature; but time shapes us in funny ways. If it weren't for the many moving parts, he'd carry his sentries around while they were firing; but he prefers his fingers firmly attached to his hand, so such plans must go unrealised.


It's odd to think of the character that is Mihail without the minigun. On the battlefield, I mean. We've all seen a Fat Scout or two, and Hoovies, but. You know.
Although, to be honest, RS!Engineer and Canon!Engineer are a lot more similar than they seem on the surface - apart from the bald heads. For one thing, they're often categorised as the Normal Guys, which is a bit of a reach for. Well. I think their Meet the Team videos speak for themselves.
