Cesário Guiomar Fernandes Cabral de Silva
12 April 1922, Setúbal (40)
Occupation: Coronel in the FMU

Cesário Cabral joined the Mocidade Portuguesa in 1936, the year of its founding; five years later, he joned the Portuguese Army, eventually serving first in Portugal itself then briefly on the Azores. After the end of the war, he was stationed on Timor, where he helped in the rebuilding programmes (his knack for engineering and organising shining through brightly); he returned to Portugal in 1949 with a promotion to Major. He then served at Mozambique from 1951 until 1956, when he was both promoted to Tenente-Coronel and retationed at Angola. It was there that he was promoted to Coronel shortly after the outbreak of the Guerra do Ultramar.

Holden Roberto
12 January 1923, São Salvador, Angola (39)
Occupation: Leader of the FNLA

Roberto, son of Garcia Diasiwa Roberto and Joana Lala Nekaka, was born in São Salvador, Angola. His family moved to Léopoldville, Belgian Congo in 1925. In 1940 he graduated from a Baptist mission school. He worked for the Belgian Finance Ministry in Léopoldville, Bukavu, and Stanleyville for eight years. In 1951 he visited Angola and witnessed Portuguese officials abusing an old man, inspiring him to begin his political career.

Roberto and Barros Necaca founded the Union of Peoples of Northern Angola, later renamed the Union of Peoples of Angola, on July 14, 1954. Roberto, serving as UPA President, represented Angola in the All-African Peoples Congress of Ghana which he secretly attended in Accra in December 1958. He acquired a Guineanpassport and visited the United Nations. The United States National Security Council began giving Roberto aid in the 1950s, paying him $6,000 annually until 1962 when the NSC increased his salary to $10,000 for intelligence-gathering. Roberto is a staunch supporter of Angolan Independence and will do everything it could to fight the Portugese.

Lieutenant-Colonel Guiomar Marquinhos Thiago, Count of Ilha do Principe
Commander of the Urban Angola Zone
The Lieutenant-Colonel is not a man marked for military service. Count of Ilha do Principe and head of one of those innumerable families of Portuguese nobility which stuck around after the overthrow of the monarchy; only to come out of the shadows as the right-wing breathed fresh air during the Estado Novo. The Lieutenant-Colonel is an extremely wealthy man, and more or less bought his was through the ranks of the Portuguese military even though, in the words of an army doctor post-inspection "Sr. Thiago is more fit to be an insurance salesman than a soldier". To alleviate concerns, the Lieutenant-Colonel was dispatched to the peace and quiet of Angola as a commander with a heavy paycheck. That soon turned out to be a mistake, and Guiomar is in for a lot more than he bargained for...

Major Francisco Maria da Silva
Born June 4, 1921, Lisbon
Affiliation: FMU.
Brief biography: Born to a middle-class, politically-active Catholic family, da Silva entered the Military Academy, and, while known to be gregarious and successful academically, was known for a somewhat rebellious streak that saw him graduate near the bottom of his class. Given his family connections, though, he managed to secure a rather comfortable sinecure as a military attache in Washington, D.C. Like many in the ruling class, he happened to have a Lusotropicalist streak - however, this proved to be his undoing as, after having gotten friendly with a beatuiful young American student, he got impermissibly involved in the racial politics in nearby Virginia. In order to avert a potentially embarrassing situation, his commanding officers have quietly reassigned him to Angola...
