    Rocky Potts is the Master Technician for the Strider's Strikers team.  His work
    with weapon retrofits and complete chassis overhauls astounds most of the
    Strikers.  Potts' greatest accomplishment is his 70-ton Infighter BattleMech,
    co-built with Dr. Byron Jones from a reconfigured Charger chassis.  The Mech
    also sports its own prototype weapons of the two's creation.  The
    ThunderClap-20, as it has been named, uses sonic booms to rattle enemy
    Mechs apart.
    Rocky's friend and ever-companion, Ryan Allen, pilots the Infighter.  The two
    have a long history that goes back to when Rocky originally lost his arms,
    during an attack by Liao BattleMechs on a small BattleMech factory.  Ryan
    saved Rocky by carrying him to the hospital via a Wasp BattleMech.  Rocky still
    fights in Mechs, though he is not your average pilot.  His skills in the Mech shed
    greatly outweigh his skills on the battlefield.
    Rocky is an expert tech who provides many of the Strikers with weapon setup
    and replacements.  Though maimed, his cybernetic Mod IV limbs give him the
    necessary control over his tools.  Rocky believes he owes Ryan his life,
    therefore forever putting him at Ryan's side.  Rocky enjoys tinkering with
    experimental weapon designs and cross replacements between Mechs.  He is
    known for creating difficult combinations of weapons and equipment that are
    often thought impossible to rig.
    Rocky's lance was attacked by a Blakist Mech force in 3068.  Despite his
    position as a commander, Rocky was busy at the time in the laboratory working
    on a simplified chassis for the Infighter.  He was evacuated after actions were
    taken by Mural Rye-Del, the more experienced tactician of the two.  Rocky
    disguised himself by riding a Panther Mech and quickly made his way to an
    emergency Dropship landing site.  In order to save their commander and the
    Strikers' unit's most important scientist, Mural, Sarah Smythe, and Birdie
    Sunnman met their enemies head on in combat.  Though they were unable to
    protect Rocky much, they nevertheless bought him the time needed to escape.
    Rocky has been shaken by the recent series of tragedies within the Strikers
    unit.  He and Ryan debated whether or not they would stay with the team, but
    opted to stick with the unit.  Rocky knows that Strider's Strikers need his
    technical know-how and has decided to do his best in providing them with his
    skill.
