Civilian control

A VIP can be controlled by the player only if he's visible and near a soldier (like to ear orders).

Soldier could have a charismatic property that increase the distance to control a VIP.

Protagonist himself lives in first PHALANX base. He can participate in base attack mission. He can be evacuated on attack but soldiers receives moral penalty, if not soldiers receives bonus during base defend. If protagonist dies game of course will be lost. Aliens will try to kill him in priority.
