Personal History:

Edward Bennett was born on April 4th, 1911 in Liverpool, to a military family. He was groomed all of his life to eventually follow in his father's footsteps and become a soldier as well. When he turned 13, he was sent to a military academy where he received the highest marks in his class. He eventually rose to be a Sergeant in the Royal Army at the young age of 26, through what many believed was nepotism rather than skill.

His chance came to prove himself when WWII broke out, and he was sent into the European theater to fight. He excelled in combat and was promoted to the rank of colonel, after which he refused to be promoted any higher lest he be taken off the battlefield. After the war, Eddy found he didn't have a purpose without an enemy to fight or orders to follow, so he joined p in any military campaign afterwards, mopping up what was left of Europe after the war.

He eventually found work with the UN, and in 1950 his chance to have another war to fight was granted. With the Korean conflict underway, Eddy saw combat as he did in WWII. In 1953, however, at the signing of the Non-aggression pact, Eddy defected. He became a mercenary and hopped a plane back to Europe, prepared to fight for anyone who paid the highest.

Eddy did this for four years, never once going back on an order or failing a mission. He did work for the GOC, MC&D, and even ORIA, never once flinching at the monstrosities he had to fight. In 1956, however, he was approached by a different group of interest, one that gave him an offer he couldn't refuse…

Miscellaneous:

A big fan of music, especially Rock-and-Roll and Elvis.

Watches movies obsessively.
