Waylen was a crack shot on the NAIS targeting range. As long Waylen’s unit stands still during its Movement Phase, any successful weapon attack he executes against a target within his weapon’s range will deliver only 1 point of damage—but if the attack scores a MoS (Margin of Success) of 3 or more, Waylen also makes an additional Critical Hit check against its target. This critical check is made even if the target still has armor.
Daniel Waylen is one of the only MechWarriors ever to serve in the Raiders who did not hail from Kestrel. Born on the Periphery border, Waylen has had to deal with prejudice
throughout his career. Assignment to the Fox’s Teeth was his third in the year following his graduation from NAMA—where he had earned a reputation for brawling and surliness and amassed more black marks than anyone else (who had not been expelled) in the academy’s preceding 13 years. Ian McKinnon’s own reputation as a maverick enabled him to look past such things. What he saw was a MechWarrior with great potential and the kind of mindset that suited him perfectly for the slot in the command lance opened by Paul Danton’s promotion.
