Mass Effect and background belongs to Bioware and EA Games.
The name "Occitania" in the context of the original character names/stories/concepts belong to me and are not to be used without my permission.
This is fanart only and not for profit.
Update: Changed his last name to Flynn as it's not so lame as Eagle
On 's recommendation, I added some red accents to the armour for a true Cap America tribute. Added three Captain stars and reworked the face bumps too.
An old flame of Jessica's, Captain Flynn is played by Chris Evans. Cap plays by the rules but sometimes his feelings for Jess end up making him question his orders.
Would anyone want to choose this big guy as your love interest? Should I make a training/romance version of him?

When I was in high school I came up with two OCs who were sort of in the Captain America mold. If you think they're worthwhile, please feel free to use their names for your Cap.
The first was named Pat Riott (a play on the word "patriot"), who believed in freedom, like Cap, but took it to an extreme, believing in total personal freedom and became an anarchist, which of course meant that, despite the origin of his name, he no longer believed in being patriotic to any nation.
Then there was Lloyd Altee (from "loyalty"). He was born in a stereotypical redneck, 'Murican type of family, but he educated himself and rejected the more extreme mentalities of his kin. However, he kept the loyalty and pride to what America is supposed to represent, always trying to set an example of that through his own life and deeds.
Other that those two, there's always the Flagg last name; it's been used for several patriotic types of characters by various comic book companies.
Finally, you could always take a note from Arnold's book, and go with Captain Freedom www.youtube.com/watch?v=LazUZz…
Now, if you still wish to keep the Capt. Eagle name, I happened to come up with this possible back story that might work, and which you can certainly have, if you want it: Your Captain (and his grandfather) is a descendant of Bernard C. White, the man who designed the original Desert Eagle Pistol. Your Captain's grandfather's name was George Eggleston
(yes, I used my first name for him, because why not? and his last name, Eggleston, I chose because it's a little similar to the word "eagle" and because in real life there is a company called Eggleston Munitions, which makes bullets, and I figured George and your Captain was descended from the guy who founded that company, as well).
George was the guy working for the Alliance's Offensive Handgun Project who designed the look and working mechanism for the upgrade to the Phalanx Pistol, the weapon that would eventually be named the N7 Eagle. After his designs were approved by the Alliance, and the weapon went into production, George's colleagues nicknamed him "Eagle" because of the similarity to George's last name, Eggleston, and of course due to the weapon's name; George liked the nickname so much, he decided to officially change his last name to Eagle, and he passed on his new last name to his son and, obviously, his grandson (your Captain).
(Basically, I took your original idea, that The N7 Eagle was named after the grandfather, and turned it around so that the grandfather got his new last name from the gun, and then I added grandpa's first name (such a hard name to come up with, lol), the connection to Bernard White, and all the Eggleston stuff).
Also, I just wanted to mention another thing regarding the weapon that your Captain has in the picture; I could be wrong, but it looks to me like it's an N7 Valkyrie Assault Rifle. I would like to suggest that, instead of the Valkyrie, he uses an M8 Avenger Assault Rifle, for two reasons. The first reason is obviously because of the Cap+Avengers connection, and the second reason is because the Avenger rifle is described as "tough and reliable" and it's considered "an oldie but a goodie", which is very much like Cap himself. In other words, it just feels right to me for Cap to use a weapon such as this; it's like they were made for each other.
As soon as I read "Flynn", my weird imagination sparked up again, and I imagined him somehow going to Andromeda and meeting a certain Sara Ryder. They'd fall in love, and have a son who would eventually get the hots for a girl with really long, blonde hair www.nerdhq.com/what-i-learned-… .....
Sorry, I really can't help myself; as you mentioned, I just come up with these backstories and stuff; they pop in my head immediately and almost fully formed as I'm looking at something, or reading something. And it's pretty much automatic, I don't really have to think about the stories too much. It's my overactive imagination, and, sure, it can be helpful if I want to create a story or something like that, but they're not all winners, and it can be a pain, too, like when I need to focus one one certain thing, but my brain won't stop making up stuff about a million other things that have nothing to do with what I'm trying to concentrate on at that moment ( or like when I was a teen, and my hormones were rampaging; I couldn't barely look at most females without my horny brain instantly creating so much x-rated fanfiction about them that it would make an army of succubi blush ... try to figure out algebra under THAT condition, lol)...
Anyway... like I said, Flynn is fine enough of a heroic proper name; it sounds "action-y" enough, but not overly flashy, like Captain America's character itself, so it's fitting I suppose.
BTW, will let you know if I come up with some interesting name suggestion, otherwise Cap'n Eagle will do just fine.
