The Eagle has landed! Prepare for invasion! *spins in a circle* Don't worry, *poses dramatically* the Range Rider is here to protect you! Up, up and away, Thunder!
What's that? Ooh; that's right. B.A. hates invisible animals in his van. Hrm. *taps a finger against his chin in thought* I got it!
*runs off and comes back donning cape and mask made out of a yellow gingham tablecloth*
Captain Cab to the rescue! What's that, Billy? Oh right, animal doc.
*ditches the cape and mask* *pulls out a sock puppet*
Vern the veterinarian, and Sockie at your service! What ails you, my good friend? *kneels down and talks to no-one* That sounds very serious indeed. We may have to operate. Nurse! Get my gloves! STAT!
Don't worry, Billy. Everything's going to be a-ok. You're 'ol pal Murdock will see to that.
Notable Murdock words of wisdom: "I got my words, and my brain's workin fine, but when the words come out, they wanna rhyme." "Call it a fixation, but the Maltese Cow is haunting me. It's cryptic moo beckoning me like the scent of a cheap dance hall hostess." "This building is weird. The buttons scream at you and the stairs talk to you." "Use your imagination, or you can borrow mine." "I'll drop those pineapples like a crazed pigeon hovering over a mounted statue." "Lately I've been packing a helicopter with my underwear."

Availability: Okay, I don't actually work anymore, in the sense that I don't have a M-F job. But! I am prepping to move to Australia so my availablity shifts around as I organize the house, sell things off, pack, etc etc. And in June I'll actually be in the land down under, so my playing time will likely be vastly different since I'll be a shitload of timezones away. Oh goody! :D
Murdock is a part of the A-Team, a group of four men who style themselves as 'soldiers of fortune'. Three of the team's members were wrongly accused of a crime during the Vietnam War and escaped from military prison. They are on the run from the military police while taking on jobs. All jobs the A-Team accepts are 'ethical'. They are, in essence, the last hope for those suffering from oppression or tyranny. In whatever form that may take.
Murdock is the team's pilot. He can fly anything - helicopters, jet aircraft, small prop craft - if it has wings, he can fly it! While he was never convicted of any crime, he was found to be mentally unstable and placed into psychiatric care at a VA Hospital. However, he escapes often (mostly with the assistance of the team's con expert, Templeton 'Face' Peck) and goes on missions with the rest of his team. He has rescued the team several times from the clutches of Colonel Decker.
Some think that Murdock's 'insanity' is an elaborate ruse; his 'ticket to free room and board'. Despite delusions of grandeur, sock puppets and invisible dogs, Murdock is quite intelligent, bordering on genius level aptitude. He has extensive knowledge of various subjects, keeps up with current events and can speak several languages, including Spanish, Vietnamese and Mandarin Chinese. A talented actor, he is capable of impersonating the voices of famous individuals and mimicking many different foreign accents (though a few of his method of disguises leaves something to be desired). He also seems to have a photographic memory and can recite entire literary passages.
