Psi Wars: Spaceships! - Sample Character Tobin Starlaw

If we're going to playtest fighters, we should have a fighter ace.  I've kept Tobin deliberately conservative: It's pretty easy to have a Fighter Ace with Pilot 20+ and Gunnery (Beams) 18+.  I wanted someone a little more reasonable to give us an idea of what most fighter aces could do, rather than a highly optimized one.

Tobin is your stereotypical fighter ace: Loves to party, loves his squadron, serves his country, and would never kick a puppy.  I've given him Daredevil and Higher Purpose (Dogfighter) to emphasize how much he loves to get into the thick of it.  And I've given him a humble origin, because obviously he went into space to escape the mundane existence he had on some boring farm planet milking space-cows.
