Officially, Kinglsy serves as Specialist Aiden Rudwell's commanding officer but due to their separation following the arrival of "The Visitors", he takes charge of a separate element, callsign Sapphire.
He initially assumes the radio callsign of Howlite Actual but is later reassigned to Sapphire Actual.
First Contact (2039)
|«||Kingsly: And, I'd be remiss if I didn't ask. Your alien tech? Get it to the right people... okay? Scientists... not politicians! Over.
Severov: We will live, we will see, Lieutenant. That is beyond us now. Out.
Kingsly cautions Severov against allowing Russian politicians to get access to The Visitors' technology
On the flight out of Livonia, Kingsly messaged Capt. Severov and cautioned him against allowing Russian politicians to get their hands on the aliens' technology. Severov sheepishly agreed with the Lieutenant but simply stated that it was entirely out of his hands now. The Captain bid the Lieutenant and the others a final farewell before returning to his duties.
Kingsly was then brought to a high-security military base in nearby Kaliningrad, where he and the others underwent quarantine due to the risk of possible contamination. However, they were treated quite well by the Russians, and more than a month later, would be released and allowed to leave the country.
He subsequently returned to the United States, where he would undoubtedly undergo intense scrutiny both from his military peers and the media.
Personality and Appearance
Kingsly is a white male with a black head of hair and a lightly shaved face. He is usually seen wearing the standard-issue gear adopted by most U.S. Army squad leaders, comprising of a combat uniform (with rolled-up sleeves), a heavy plate carrier, and an Enhanced Combat Helmet for headwear; all camouflaged in Woodland MTP.
Honourable and pragmatic, Kingsly is first and utmost loyal to his subordinates. His casual approach to leadership has developed a relaxed and friendly atmosphere to those serving under his command. He is informal most of the time, frequently chatting with his men and leading from the front as seen from his taking the reigns of Sapphire.
Kingsly is often at odds with Major Homewood due to his aggressive leadership style. Despite this, when Corporal Jack Stype commits fratricide and "accidentally" kills the Major, he becomes bitter towards Stype - at times behaving in a threatening manner towards him, and only begrudgingly working with him out of sheer necessity.
He enjoys listening classical music and for the duration of Electron-39, was placed in charge of maintaining the playlist for the Armed Forces Radio channel. It was broadcast live from the radio tower at Rodzanica - much to the annoyance of Maj. Homewood, who vowed to make it a "tier one priority target" if he was ever placed in charge of the deployment.
