Rear Admiral Mekum James Campbell, 1st Viscount Campbell of Argyll LC, DSO, PC (IMID 1080704) is a highly trained, experienced soldier and the only known remnant of The Project left in existence. He is a former Special Forces officer, Intelligence Operative, General and decorated Fighter Pilot. Once again having returned to the Lyran cause, he serves as the Commander in Chief of the Lyran Royal Navy.
He is also known as the "Ghost" by former covert and intelligence associates, "Chief", "ORION-J87" "MJ12-Lenneria", and "Phase Four".

A scream echoed though out the darkness, reverberating against the surrounding buildings. It was the moment she had been waiting for, through nearly sixteen hours of labour, she had a son, his father was unknown, his mother being a prostitute. It was the time of the Empire, and a galaxy in chaos.
His mother died in the Menari Riots when James was three and he was consequently taken into an orphanage and sent to a workhouse, unpicking oakum or hemp or washing laundry. He ran at the age of seven, eventually falling into the hands of Maggie Joyce who ran a tavern in the Goslitt area of Coruscant. Maggie looked after James, teaching him to steal and love, until when he was sixteen years old. James had developed affection for one of the barmaids, as had the owner of the tavern. James had found him trying to rape the barmaid and in the ensuing fight, stabbed him in the throat and was forced to flee to Corellia where he joined the Empire.
Phase Four - Codename: ORION
- "In time you may come back some say, to live once more, or die once more"
- — From an unknown Mid-Rim song
On Year 5 Day 109, work began on replicating an exact clone of James Walters, who was inadvertently killed by the failure of Phase Two. Using Spaarti cloning cylinders allowed the process to be limited to a singular year but allowing enough time to complete genetic modifications upon the original MJ12-Lenneria DNA. Alexander Fel ordered that the clone be an improved upgrade of the original Walters and hoped that he would be able to clone a 'perfect' servant. The scientists at his secret Lenneria facility successfully managed to compress the memo groups within the DNA strand, eventually leaving two hundred instead of forty seven, compacted and filled with infinite genetic knowledge. By tampering with the original DNA in such a way, Fel's scientists were able to give 'Phase Four' superior strength, endurance and dexterity far beyond what a normal human being, whilst being subconsciously loyal to Fel. It is unknown whether or not Fel was successful in his attempt to 'clone' the Force, what few remaining scientific documents relating to The Project were destroyed after the failure of Phase Three. Phase Four was activated fourteen months after creation on Year 6 Day 140 and inserted within the Galactic Empire. Totally engineered by Alexander Fel, saw Imperial service as a testing ground for the Orion program. Some conspiracy theorists have claimed that The Project still continues through Campbell, though thus far this has never been proven or discounted.
Campbell is a tall man of about perhaps just over 6 feet. He does not appear to be outwardly strong but there is a less noticeable strength in the wiriness of his frame. His face is perhaps more intriguing than the clothes he wears. His dark brown, almost black hair seems overly long, as if overdue for a haircut. The grey flecks pick up the colour in his blue-grey eyes, never unmoving, hold a sense of sharp awareness, curiousness and yet, betray the deepest of memories held within. Beneath a layer of thick stubble, his weathered features are as if they were chiselled from fleshy stone, fit flawlessly together, though marred only by a singular deep scar running up the left side of his face. The scar gives his face a mocking, sardonic cast which all but disappears when he smiles. His body is toned and well built, though still shows much wiriness in his frame for a humanoid of his size. A pair of powerful arms fall away from his broad shoulders to his sides. His legs, not unlike the rest of his body, could almost be two Wroshyr-trunks balancing his body above, moving with ease and sure felt confidence, though his stance and walk give the impression he carries a great weight with his every movement.
He wears a pair of black high-cut leather boots, much patched, but still supple and tight about his calves. Above the scared boots, he wears Imperial olive-green coveralls that have been reinforced with leather although the red stripes on the coveralls' outer seems have long faded to a dull purple. Over his body, he wears a faded and ripped green jacket that is decorated with the remnants of black piping, now so threadbare and patched, defining years of rough and determined use. Slung over his shoulder in a waterproof sheath is an Old Republic Rifle. At his waist, a long barrelled blaster pistol is stuck into a snake-clasped belt, while at his left hip is a battered metal scabbard in which hangs a long, heavy straight sword.
There is one last thing to note, a presence around him, an air of calm, secure confidence.
Personality & Traits
Campbell is the recipient of multi-disciplinary military training, imbeded into his subconscious mind in the later stages of his growth. From this training, Campbell is proficient in not only basic infantry skills, but in special operations, which includes the use and maintenance of specialized firearms and explosive ordnance. He is highly trained in infiltration into heavily-guarded enemy territories and structures for the purpose of assassination, captures, and military intelligence and is also trained in various forms of camouflage and stealth. He is skilled with a great many types of explosives, ranging from simple detonators to improvised explosives. His hand-to-hand combat skills are more then sufficient to allow him to incapacitate and kill men much stronger than he is, as well as to deal with groups of armed and unarmed enemies, killing them all without weapons if he deems it necessary. He is also extremely deadly in knife training. Additionally, he is a preternaturally-precise marksman and is thoroughly trained and experienced in unconventional (guerilla) warfare. He is an armourer, a gunsmith, and an expert in field medicine.
The 'Pillar of Autumn'
|This Heavily modified Trilon Aggressor, given to Campbell by Alexander Fel without explanation. While externally the Trilon's appearance is as normal as the next ship, underneath the hull plating lies an advanced hyperdrive, the Sienar SSDS 11-A system. Cutting-edge sensory arrays, and one of the fastest sublight engines known to exist, the experimental high temperature X-C 2 ion drive array. It can also carry six passengers while its total capacity was 2.5 metric tons. The 'Pillar' is protected by six low-profile laser cannons which could extend and fire several laser bursts in the blink of an eye, two ion cannons and a tractor beam emitter. These upgrades and modifications, along with other confidential details allow Campbell to undertake missions of importance and secrecy with ease.||http://images.swcombine.com/ships/37/main.jpg

Quotes & Notable Dialogue
A hero is more than a person, a hero is a belief. A belief that, against impossible odds, the galaxy can be saved and that the galaxy is still worth saving. Heroes inspire that belief in us. They renew our faith and give us that most precious of all gifts - hope. The galaxy needs heroes. That's why, when a true hero arrives, the galaxy will honour him.
