Personal History:

Alan was born in the USA a little bit before the Great Depression, but his memories begin after its already begun. Despite the timing of his birth, he had an extremely loving and caring mother and father and they did their best to send him to school and give him a normal childhood despite being victims of the depression. For the most part, it worked. Alan lived a slightly lonely but otherwise happy childhood with his parents watching over him. He thought he was destined for a life on the stage in his early years, and his parents were very supportive. As he grew up though, he saw the reality of the situation his parents were in and he resolved to become a soldier to support them. As soon as he was able, he signed himself up and joined the army.

He threw everything he had toward doing the best he could. Over the course of the next few years, he got himself promoted multiple times over the course of WW2 with his contributions to the pacific war, and his skills and determination were taken note of by a special group of soldiers that he can no longer remember the name of. What he does remember was an offer to join along with a higher pay grade, and he quickly accepted this, both wanting to serve his country and help his parents. He spent the next several years capturing high priority targets with info about Americas enemies and allies, extracting that info, and killing the ones the intelligence pointed out. He was told during his first year that his parents were dead, and he was alone. He was heartbroken by this, but elected to continue within the squad, not seeing what else he could do with his life.

As the years went on, WW2 ended, and despite taking out some potentially dangerous individuals to the state, his group wasn't much more than mercenaries. He continued surviving as his other squad mates left or died, and the Foundation came and offered him a way out, "An opportunity to change the world". He took the offer, happy to do more meaningful work. His squad mates were made to think he left normally via amnestics, and he left to begin work at the foundation.

Languages:

Miscellaneous:

Doesn't truly believe his parents are dead when he looks back at being told, but wasn't in a position to question it at the time. Still cares for them deeply.

Knows that some of his squad was still alive when the foundation pulled him out.
