I had to cut it up badly to fit it into the format... And it's still wider than the standard pic, but the text should fit.

Is it acceptable, Ivan?

Ajnunezr, I'll use a different pic for Elias Seppä - adding background is just way too much work to make it look good.

Name: Ludmilla Trka

Role: Contactee

Details: Verified abduction survivor with multiple strange implants removed over the course of last seven years. She claims to feel the presence of invaders enslaving others at the start of the second millennium.

Status: Hired.

Don't have a picture in mind.... yet.

OK, I'll try to fit her somehow. But who is her employer? Certainly not X-Com, or we wouldn't have to raid cultist houses to find out about her.
I think a lot of those 'concerned third parties' are independant and rightfully paranoiac (See the trio of 'Lone gunmen' in X-Files). XCOM arresting their enemies earns their trust, so it could be one of :
Status: Occasional informant
Status: Cooperating
Status: Rescued

I had a related idea to introduce a police officer : The capture of a faction member could reveal he is wanted as a witness by a Los Angeles inspector, Hartigan. He is indebted to us for handing the guy to him, and his influence will make XCOM's job easier in his area. Thanks to this witness, he will hopefully get on the track of this invisible killer, who seems to be hunting down gang members for sport...

Name: Dick Roty

Role: UFO Deception Specialist

Affiliation: US Air Force

Details: Roty has been identified as being a key player in feeding government disinformation to interested parties in the UFO community.  Some percieve this as proof that UFO sightings are fraudulent and further evidence that government "leaks" are disingenous. Others believe that Roty may be using these as deeper cover for actual contact with extra terrestrial forces.

Name: John Titor
Role: Unknown
Affiliation: Unknown

Details: He claimed to be a time traveler from 2036. No one believed him because he appeared at the time when strange events started to occure and with them a lots of freaks. Some of the things that he predicted came true others supposed to happen near future like "war out of this world". Many organizations wants access to his knowledge now.

Status: Missing

Picture: Wanted to use Emmett Lathrop Brown picture but he is more suited for "mad scientist" type of a guy but maybe reall photo of Christopher Lloyd will work.

Thank you for your entries! I was actually hoping for something new, before I release 0.6.

The Zodiac guy is an interesting case in that at first glance, he's not someone X-Com would be interested in, as he is not a supporter of aliens... But then perhaps he is? I'll try to fit him into the lore.

Mr. Shud doesn't really qualify as it is, because he's been dead, and we're not chasing dead people... Unless it turned out that he was only presumed dead, and now he's emerged again after 50 years? That could be interesting!

So would it be OK if I changed these entries slightly?

Sure!

Thanks, I added Taman Shud. I feel a bit unsure about adding a real person, but 1) we know pretty much nothing about him, and 2) it was almost a century ago...

Here is a rough draft since I have time on my hands.
Sorry if the style and English is not great but right now I'm having a slight fever  :(

-------------------------------------------


Name: William Carter
Role: Former Agent/Squad Leader
Affiliation: Former CIA/Rogue Agent
Details:

After serving in the Pacific theater during the Second World War he started working as a field operative for the CIA in 1948.

It is presumed he defected to a rogue association of agents while being on an assignment in the U.S.S.R. 

He then set up a house fire at home killing his entire family to fake psychological trauma
This way he got a post in the CIA's administration, where he went on to gather trust and intel.


He is implicated in several attacks on US military facilities in the 1960s. The first being the destruction of the Groom Range facility and at least participation in the assassination of J. Edgar Hoover.


Reports claim that his group used advanced weapon technology suggesting that it operated on a world wide scale with large amounts of funding from the shadows.


In the following weeks he played a major role in several Kidnappings of scientists, engineers and military personnel as well as bloody raids on civilians.


There were findings that interrogations took place, where he also took part in the torture of abductees.
One report details a long vertical cut in the face of one of his victims.

During a raid on the main hideout of aforementioned association he was wounded.
It is still unclear what happened to him afterwards.

There is a strong possibility that he escaped, taking some of the advanced technologies with him.
If that is the case it could be that our enemies may have access to those.
