    George Hamill was once a famed film director on his home planet of Miranda.  
    After a colorful career producing fresh new film ideas, he began to lose his
    creative ability.  His ratings as a director began to collapse and George finally
    decided to give up his dream and pursue one of his many other interests.
    Ever since he had become successful as a filmmaker, George had been
    considered by most to be a renaissance man.  He was not only talented in
    script-writing and directing, but George had a wide variety of other skills and
    talents.  An accomplished poet in his free time, George had a made a name for
    himself throughout the Labrea system.  He was also a capable painter, able to
    take down most anyone's appearance using watercolors.  George was able to
    take advantage of his rare ability, having been born with a photographic
    memory.
    His most famous interest, which often caught public attention, was his interest
    in BattleMech engineering and design.  It was not known to many, but George
    had long ago purchased a Mech when he had reached stardom with his first
    science fiction movie, Flak Game.  The 95-ton Cerberus assault Mech, George's
    favorite design, was occasionally piloted by the young man when he was taking
    a break from film-making.  Though he was far from what most consider a good
    pilot, George's ego convinced him he was just as capable as any other
    Mechwarrior.
    After seeing a want ad on the local newsvid, George volunteered his services to
    the Strider's Strikers team.  The unit was apparently suffering from
    over-deployment and had advertised for a new assault lance.  By having his
    own Mech, George was able to get onto the team, despite his poor gunnery
    skills.
    George slowly developed some strategic skills as a Mechwarrior.  His piloting
    and gunnery abilities were poor, but he continued to believe he was more than
    able to handle himself and his Mech.  His overconfidence and inflated ego were
    unfortunate qualities that led to his demise in 3068.
    While holding their defensive position after suffering damage from a Blakist
    ambush, George and his lancemates were outnumbered and out-gunned.  Lance
    leader Hayato Rihaku decided to divide the lance into two teams in order to
    combat enemy fire that was coming from the north and south.  Underestimating
    the enemy's abilities, George moved his Cerberus too far from his partnered
    pilot, Luke-Jean Dracip.  When Luke-Jean's Mech became entangled with two
    other Mechs in physical combat, George tried to help his lancemate.  However it
    was too late.  Luke-Jean was unable to reply to any transmissions.
    Before long, George's Mech suffered critical hits to it hip joints and fell to the
    ground.  George was then taken captive by the Blakist extremists.  He was
    questioned for detailed information regarding the Strikers' newly acquired
    Arbiter Warship.  Because he knew nothing of the Warship and little about his
    new unit, he was tortured to give more information.  After failing several times,
    his interrogator went to further extremes that resulted in George's death.
    The video recording of his death was sent to the team's new commanders, Duo
    Maxwell and Sasha Breen.  Upon learning of George's death, both commanders
    contemplated a counterstrike against the Blakists.  However because the unit
    had already lost so much, the decision was delayed seemingly indefinitely.
