character information
name: Sam Wilson
canon: Marvel Cinematic Universe
canon point: Post-Civil War
age: 38

(canon) background: http://marvelcinematicuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Falcon

abilities: Sam is a trained pararescueman (albeit retired from the military). This means that he’s been trained to survive in - and extract wounded and dead - from virtually every environment, make parachute and free-fall jumps, perform underwater rescues, work as a combat medic, and is a certified paramedic. He’s also trained extensively in the use of various weapons (largely guns and explosives, but also knife fighting) and hand-to-hand fighting, and he’s probably close to the peak of physical fitness.

No superhuman abilities or magic, though.

strengths:
Loyalty: Sam is intensely loyal to his friends. His fellow EXO-7 pilot, Riley, was his best friend, and Riley’s death made him leave the military, more loyal to a single person than to a cause. Sam’s loyalty leads him to pick the wings back up so he can aid Steve when he infiltrates SHIELD. He later accompanies him to Peggy Carter’s funeral, and follows him to Vienna, Bucharest, and Berlin, sticking by Steve’s side to fight his other teammates. And when he knows he can do more good by staying behind, Sam lets Steve and Bucky leave and allows Tony and Secretary Ross to imprison him in the Raft.
Determination: Determination is one of of the traits necessary to make it through pararescue training, which pushes trainees to extreme physical limits. In fights, Sam refuses to back down; when Bucky destroys his wings, he still deploys his parachute, then fights Rumlow until the building collapses. When Steve and Bucky need a distraction, he keeps fighting in a fight he knows he can’t win, just to give them the chance to escape. Sam succeeded not only in getting into the Air Force, but also in being chosen for and making it through pararescue training, and then was selected for the EXO-7 test program, ultimately serving in combat. Whatever he starts, he sees it through.
Compassion/kindness: He puts helping others first, and his own well-being second. When Steve and Natasha show up, he doesn’t think twice about helping them, even though he knows they’re fugitives. Instead, he welcomes them in and offers them his help in infiltrating SHIELD. Later, when Steve tells Sam about his plans to go looking for Bucky, he immediately agrees to help him. Though he’d initially turned Steve's offer to join the Avengers down, he changes his mind, knowing that his skills will enable him to save people. And even though he has his own troubles from his time in Afghanistan, he works with fellow veterans suffering from PTSD, trying to help them readjust to civilian life.
weaknesses:
Stubborn: Sam doesn't know when to quit. He tends to push at things (and people) past the breaking point - for what he thinks is best, but isn't always. It leads him to butt heads with other stubborn people, and oftentimes ends poorly in these cases. It also means that sometimes he gets 'tunnel vision' and focuses too much on one particular goal, sometimes to the exclusion of other necessary details.
Blunt: He tells it like it is, without cushioning the blow. It's sometimes necessary in his line of work, but doesn't always work well as an approach to other people, because they don't want to hear what he has to say. It also means that he's very pragmatic when it comes to plans, and won't hesitate to tell people that what they want to do is goddamn stupid.
Cocky: Sam can be a touch on the cocky side sometimes (especially if he's flirting with someone), leading to overconfidence in his own abilities. It hasn't gotten him into trouble yet, but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen in the future.

skills (optional): See abilities section. He's also a licensed therapist who specializes in treating PTSD.
housing (optional): Communal housing is fine!
