John Miller is a space commando built in the Free FATE system.  His weapons are from Halo 3: ODST and his concept is inspired in no small part by that game.  I’ve never tried FATE or any derivative thereof before, but I really liked the rules as I read through them and character creation was an enjoyable breeze.  One needs to have a very strong character concept in mind to make it really work, but it seems like FATE works well enough for just about any setting.
