Wayne is a blunt man who lacks a filter between his brain and his mouth. The type of individual who decides what he wants and he goes after it tenaciously. For this he has few friends and many enemies. He is the type of person who often pushes people away, even those he loves, and yet he can be the most loyal ally a person can find if they're capable of cracking his outer armor. He possesses a wry sense of humor and a pessimistic view of life and the galaxy as a whole, often finding levity in it's many bleak ironies. History:
Wayne's life truly began the moment his mother died when he was only 16. Dezthia (his younger half-sister), their mother, and himself lived on the isolated colony of Rimtown on the border of the as-of-yet expansion of human colinization efforts and Batarian territory. Wayne's own father abandoned him and his mother after he was born. He knows extremely little about him, only that his mother and father were both a part of the first wave of colonists to help build the site. Wayne's mother never told him anything more about it, despite his constant pestering her. This caused Wayne to develop a great sense of resentment for her.
When his mother married another colonist when he was just 8, his anger grew even more for her and her new husband. They had a girl together, his sister Dezthia, who he despised at first, but eventually grew very close to. It wasn't enough, however, to keep him from signing up with the Alliance the moment he reached the legal age for colony kids. Wayne was never truly indebted to the tenets of the Alliance, but he did see it as a chance to get out of Rimtown, and to get away from his family. Fate wasn't kind to him though when the news came months later that Rimtown had been hit by a Batarian raid. The news was reporting that the vast majority of the colony had been taken as slaves, but his heart sunk deeper into his chest when he heard that his mother was one of those who resisted and was killed for it, alongside his step-father. Wayne rushed home, going awol on his boot training to find the colony a ghost town, in the desperate hope of finding his younger sister but failing her. It wouldn't be the last time he would fail Dezthia.
Life went on and Wayne channeled his rage into his training, quickly becoming one of the brightest young soldiers in the Alliance and earning a place in the prestigious N7 program. After earning his N7 designation, his first assignment was to acompany a squad of soldiers on a smash and grab to apprehend a known Batarian terrorist operating out of a moon base in the Hourglass Nebula. What the team discovered was that the terrorist was working with high ranking officials from the Batarian hegemony. The mission was called off in the fear that taking into custody a high ranking political figure could spark a war with the Batarians, but Wayne had other plans. In direct opposition to his order, Wayne ordered his men to storm the base. A blood bath ensued as the Batarians had better fortifications than intel had originally suggested. Wayne lost half his men, but none of the Batarians survived. In order to avoid a greater conflict, the Alliance branded Wayne a war criminal and court marshalled him.
He was in custody for nearly a year before a mysterious woman paid him a visit. Young, beautiful, and black haired. It took him quite a while to put the pieces together but eventually realized that it was his thought-dead or enslaved sister, Dezthia. A short, awkward conversation followed the deft slipping of a device and Wayne had the means to break out. The night that both of them comandeered a ship and got out of Alliance space as quickly as they could.
It was only a matter of weeks before a recruiter from the shady Cerberus orginization came knocking, hoping to get Wayne to join their ranks. He agreed, but only on the condition that his sister come as well. They spent years in Cerberus, each joining disparate cells with differing purposes. Wayne became one of their top operatives and was even considered as an alternative option to Commander Shepard should the Lazerus Project not succeed. Not long after the Reaper War began, however, Wayne began to become increasingly more uncomfortable working for the group. After his infiltration abilities allowed him to discover that the Illusive Man was using indoctrination on refugees, he quickly got an message off to his sister (in an encrypted code only the two of them used) warning her to leave and got out himself.
For most of the war Wayne sat on the sidelines, hiding out in the Terminus Systems. Thankfully Cerberus was too preoccupied at the time to come after him. It wasn't until after the war that he met back up with his sister... though the meeting didn't go particularly well. Shots were fired, though afterwards Wayne soon forgot what it was over. The half siblings parted ways and didn't see each other again for many years. Wayne plied his training as a freelance mercenary, even getting a fancy Turian ship on a bet with a rival, while Dezthia went to Omega and got cozy with Ms. T'Loak herself, if the stories were true. Appearance & Equipment:
Wayne isn't nearly as old as he appears. Years of fighting and hard living have left an impression on his once very handsome figure. His body is marred by scarring including bullet wounds, stabs, spots where bones didn't heal back perfectly from breaks. A spattering of grey hair can be seen in his lazily kempt beard and on the temples of his thick head of hair, slicked back and almost falling to his shoulders. He has faded blue eyes and a very pale skin tone. All of these features, however, are often hidden underneath his iconic yellow armor from head to toes. He carries with him the latest model Logi-Con Omni-Tool, a compartment along his belt where he keeps some tools to take with him in the field, the latest Phantom model cloaking devise, and a kinetic shield generator. He prefers using heavy pistols and shotguns and to be up and personal with his marks rather than hiding in the shadows and picking them off like most infiltrators would. Misc. Notes:
Wayne, for some reason, is very atracted to the Asari. Almost to the point of fetishizing them.
