Steven WalkerCode Name:
Appearance: Steven Walker is a tall, white male in peak physical condition. He has blond hair and blue eyes, with pleasant down home features of a mid-western farmboy. The man looks good in a uniform, and on a recruitment poster, although those days are long gone. His blond hair is done in a military regulation approved cut, leaving him with a high and tight. An American flag is tattooed upon Steven's face. No emotions display upon Steven's face, and looking into his eyes, there is nothing remaining but the cold, merciless disdain of a psychopath. Personality:
There was once a man of honour, duty, and integrity who wore Steven's face, spoke with his face, and inhabited his body. That man is gone now. All that remains within Steven Walker is an entity that will answer to that name, dedicated to the mission, unconstrained by conventional ethics or morality. He no longer dreams of a better world for himself or others, of a wife, child, and a suburban home host to Sunday barbeques, or any aspect of the archetypical American dream. Those died, and what remains has no use for dreams of idealized civilian life. There are no more dreams for the thing within Steven Walker. When he sleeps, it is only unfathomable darkness. When he awakens, there is only the mission, and the will to see it carried through to the end.History:
Steven Walker was born in the American mid-west. His parents were devout Christians, and in a twist, this meant that they took to heart the values of the religion. They loved their neighbors, helped those less fortunate where they could, and strove to leave the world a better place than they found it. Steven grew up comfortably, played sports, went to college, and enlisted in the United States Army with a naive notion that he would be giving back to the country that gave him so much. Basic training broke him down and then rebuilt him into a cog in the U.S. war machine. Action in combat brought the grim realities of what was necessary to ensure safety and prosperity at home. There was a cost in blood, sweat, and humanity, and Steven paid that price gladly until Steven was just a shell, an idea, and a distant memory.
Killing came as easily as breathing.
Steven was injured by an I.E.D., and left in a comatose state in a V.A. hospital. The extent of the damage made it seem as though Steven would never awaken, and if he did, brain damage would ensure he would not be able to function. His parents elected to pull him off life support, not wanting a shell of a son. As far as they believe, their son is dead. Instead, Steven was augmented and enhanced, then deployed in black operations. For a time, an artificial operating system governed the body. But eventually some remnant of a human being asserted itself, and Steven regained control. He remembered committing acts of terrorism on American soil and abroad, serving the needs of a shadow cabal of global rulers. He could have accepted dying for his country, but this was not to be suffered. He would not be a tool to serve the personal agendas of greedy men of power.
Steven vanished, and when he resurfaced, it as an instrument of vengeance against the corrupt underbelly of the world.
