Born in 1980 in Newport News, Virginia, Tyler Jankowski lived in the area until his family moved south to Fayetteville, North Carolina at the age of one and his father, Spen Jankowski, was offered a job as a Civil Servant on Fort Bragg. Often visiting relatives in the American mid-west, he quickly learned the skills of an expert outdoorsman and hunter. Enlisting in the US Army at the age of eighteen, as soon as he graduated high school in 1998, he maintained his proficiency in archery when he could.

Signing on for a six year contract and with the selection of Field 18X, Tyler was tagged as a Special Forces recruit once he passed the pre-requisite tests. Training in the MOS of Field 18B, a Special Forces Heavy Weapons Sergeant, Specialist Jankowski performed counter-terrorist strikes and other operations in Afghanistan during 2001. After applying for and being accepted into the Green Berets early the next year, Jankowski was moved back home to Fort Bragg/Fayetteville for more training.

When the Rikti invasion begun during May of 2002, however, Jankowski’s training was cut short and he was deployed with the Green Berets. Mostly operating over-seas – constantly being shipped around with his fellow Green Berets to where they were needed most - to protect American interests, notable theatres Sergeant Jankowski moved in and out of were the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and North/Central America. Up until the end of his contract in 2004 Jankowski continued to perform anti-Rikti operations; mostly cleaning up pockets of resistance in America after Omega Team closed the portals. It was also during this time that he once again went into more training; this time for one of the first applications of a new super soldier serum. His service record also indicates a brief stint with the First Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta for operations in [classified]. Upon being released from the US Army, Tyler married Ashley Price; whom he had been dating before the First Rikti War and kept in contact with during it.

Civilian life was ended only a few months after his retiring from the Army, as he had agreed and signed on to join the newly form International Special Operations Command during his last year in the American military. Finishing ISOC orientation in late 2004, Staff Sergeant Jankowski once again began to jump from country to country, fighting insurgencies such as Fifth Column Remnants, The Council, and other Para-military organizations that threatened to destabilize global politics after the war. In 2006 – after an incident in the newly renamed Dark Astoria sector of Paragon City - Jankowski became officially recognized and specialized as an expert against magical groups such as the Banished Pantheon, Circle of Thorns, and others. The next year, 2007, his strained marriage ended in a divorce due to his work with ISOC keeping him constantly moving around, away from home. His four year contract with ISOC ended during the summer of 2008 and Tyler once again moved back to civilian life, this time in Paragon City where he had an apartment in Founders’ Falls from his former marriage. He was soon after recruited into SCORPIO’s Spec-Ops division.


Tyler Jankowski has what can be considered, when compared to an average man, super human strength, reflexes, and adaptability as a result of the US Army’s super soldier serum regimen and constant training married with almost a decade of field and combat experience. Having a high degree of skill in many assault rifles, shotguns, sub-machine guns, and side arms he is able to quickly acquire and adapt to equipment that is procured on site just as well as equipment from an armory; sniper rifles being one of his largest weak points.

Without fire arms Jankowski is still trained extensively in hand-to-hand combat, fighting with his combat knife, and is just as skilled with a bow, from his life-time hobby of hunting and outdoorsman-ship, as he is with his favorite assault rifle. From his years in the Special Forces and the Green Berets he is competent in improvising traps and weapons, and is also skilled in infiltration.


Smart and often easy-going, Tyler Jankowski will often hold his opinion until asked for it when in the field, but will not hesitate to speak his mind when he sees something is wrong. Having a strong work ethic, he rarely appreciates deviating from an objective for a personal whim or something that isn’t a pressing emergency and is also one to think things through and work methodically. He prefers to act and move on with a mission in accordance to the established plan – whether it be his own or that of a Superior’s – instead of getting side tracked by distractions or causing a failure due to changing tactics when the situation doesn’t warrant it. Further subscribing to the ideal of keeping calm and cool no matter what happens on an operation, Jankowski doesn’t take long to square away team mates who lose it and push – or drag – them on to the next objective. Naturally preferring to act in support to an established leader instead of leading himself, a sudden void in the chain of command will often cause him to hesitate and have to step back, making a careful appraisal of the situation, before going on.

MBTI Myers Briggs Personality: ESTJ

"Creating order out of chaos" is one extraverted thinker's way of describing her volition. Determined, logical, critical, they love a challenge, especially one that will allow tangible improvement in productivity, efficiency or profitability. They are direct, finding the quickest, most direct path between what is and what should be.

They excel at implementing ideas and are often on the lookout for good ideas worthy of their attention. They are quick to organize, orchestrate, find resources, coordinate, and follow through to the end of a project. They love a problem, especially one that will make full use of their competencies, their logic and sense of order, justice and fair play.

Many find competition to be stimulating and fun. "These are the rules of the game now let us play." Fairness is sharing and respecting the same set of rules, so may the best one win. And since they readily acknowledge that there will be a winner and a loser, they would simply much rather be the winner. So they hone their strategies on the fine knife of experience and sharpen their skills to meet the next challenge head on.

They love having greater challenges bestowed on them as a result of having successfully met the last, as this attests to their competence and skills. They appear dispassionate because of their impersonal and objective approach, but close observation will reveal deep passion and enthusiasm as well as sensitivity, especially to cherished ones. However they expect others to roll up their sleeves as they do and meet the task in spite of personal hardships or discomfort. They have little tolerance for personal whims that threaten a smooth running operation. They are direct and honest with most things that displease them and expect others to do the same. Their humanity shows in their sense of fairness and justice as well as their love of humour.

OOC Background

While technically a new character for me, the concept I made Echo-3 from (the idea of a faceless elite Special Operations soldier) is something that I’ve been role playing since I joined a Player Association in the MMO Star Wars Galaxies around five or six years ago named Imperial Special Operations Command (ISOC.) A guild with the theme of elite and highly trained Storm Troopers and fighter pilots in the Galactic Empire’s military, it was from ISOC that I was introduced in Role Playing as part of professional military service and that has really made a lasting impression in all of my characters since.

In City of Heroes the character Echo-3 first started his life as Agent Hunters, whom I originally intended to be an agent of the U.S. Government and had been augmented with super soldier serum amongst other things. After a few weeks of not so much as looking at him in my character selection screen I deleted Agent Hunter and remade him as Perseus Echo. Perseus Echo was to keep the U.S. military bearing that I had on Agent Hunters but I took away the super serum training and intended to make him part of a paranormal investigation unit. Not even lasting as long as Hunters did, I shortly deleted Perseus Echo because I thought that the influence from games such as F.E.A.R. was too obvious. Finally, after a month of trial and error on making short-lived characters, Echo-3 was first made as a science Assault Rifle/Devices Blaster. After a few intro missions and deciding that I hated fighting Vahzilok, Echo-3 was remade a fourth and final time with the same name and power sets but with the magic origin. This time I decided to not limit him to ghost hunting and the likes, but as part of the International Special Operations Command’s Operational Detachment Echo, 2nd Special Operating Group, Operator 3; borrowing the name ISOC from my guild in SWG (not former guild, I’m still active in our forums and a Second Lieutenant in the guild) but changing the name a touch to fit the City of Heroes universe and making ISOC another military organization made by the United Nations.


  • While I've never really consider any of my characters to have a real theme-song, there are bands and genres that I will listen to more when playing a character. Marilyn Manson, Nightwish, Celldweller, Diesel Boy, and other metal/rock and techno/drum and bass music are usually what I listen to while playing Echo-3.
  • Echo-3 goes through more costume revisions than any other character I've played.
  • This character almost got deleted and probably forgotten about after my fourth re-rolling of Echo. I had gotten him to level 10 and then gotten sidetracked for a few weeks until High Jinks and Star Gleam made new alts to play on and do TFs, earning more prestige for the SG. I decided to join them and just chose Echo-3 since he was already a few levels up and more appealing than my other dust-collectors.
