Early Doom Characters

In the early stages of Doom, id planed to use different characters with different strengths, weaknesses and skills. Some of these characters appear or are similar to characters in 3D Realm's game Rise of the Triad. In this instead of visiting Phobos the characters visit a moon called Tei Tenga or its a similar place. This is a list of the Doom characters found in the Doom Bible written by Tom Hall and the ROTT characters are from the ROTT manual:

Lorelei Chen
Age: 27 Weight: 151 Height: 5'10"
Physical Description: Muscular, tall woman, attractive, but has strangely too-intense eyes. Oriental featured in the brown eyes and black hair, which is drawn back into a large knot. Scar on left shoulder from rock-climbing accident.
Character Description: Fiercely competitive, Lorelei intimidates most people. She won her troop boxing championship. Lost a bet that meant she had to pull her application for a glory post. Too late to reapply, she got this post. Married for six months once, husband divorced her for irreconcilable differences. From European Alliance. No one calls her Lorelei.
Advantages: Fast. Crack shot with pistol.
Disadvantages: Once wounded, she still tends to push herself to compensate, so wounds can keep ticking off more. Not used to bayonet.
Similar to ROTT Character: Lorelei Ni
Age: 27 Hair: Black Eyes: Brown Skin: Olive Height: 5'10"
Speed: Fast Accuracy: Excellent Hit Points: Low
Chinese. Fiercely competitive. Won troop boxing championship. Intense eyes. Scar on shoulder from rock-climbing accident. Once married and soon divorced.

John “Petro” Pietrovich
Age: 34 Weight: 190 Height: 5’9”
Physical Description: Black balding man with thick eyebrows. Missing last joint of right ring finger. Brown eyes.
Character Description: Former head of security at AWR (Advanced Weapons Research) Labs, Petro grew tired of the overwhelming bureaucracy of the UAAF. His insubordination cost him his rank, and his assignment on Tei Tenga was his request, made to get away from the epicenter of annoyance while finishing out his term of duty.
Advantages: Good with standard shell weapons. Can take damage.
Disadvantages: Average speed. Not used to missile weapons.

Dimitri Paramo
Age: 37 Weight: 191 Height: 5’11”
Physical Description: Bulky, slightly overweight greek-spaniard with swarthy but unkempt looks. Frizzly dark brown hair explodes and falls off his head.
Character Description: Dimitri is basically stuck in the low ranks of the military, but that suits him just fine. He wants nothing more from life: give him a clear objective and the chance to release aggression through the freely available high-powered firearms, and he’s happy.
Advantages: Very good with a ll weapons. Can take a lot of damage.
Disadvantages: Slow.

Thi Barrett
Age: 22 Weight: 130 Height: 5’6”
Physical Description: Red-haired and trim, Thi (Pronounced “Tee”) has piercing blue eyes, and is stout but gorgeous. A toss of hair tends to fall over her forehead. She holds a bewitching dimpled smile in reserve until it proves useful.
Character Description: Thi has a friendly, if straight-laced, disposition. Father was a sargeant in the UAAF, a career soldier that gave Thi a strong sense of duty and honor. Medalist in unarmed combat competition. She volunteered for this post because no one wanted it, and with a desire to have a variety of experience in her military life.
