Lance was born in 1910 in the small town of Deerlick Missouri and grew up a star athlete with a 4.0 gpa and a bright future in the field of the culinary arts. He was a born cook, able to make meals out of most anything he could find in the kitchen. When he graduated he got a job at the local steel mill and he was able to build up his body and mind from the extreme stress of his situation. He worked there for five years and after that took a job as a local cook. His cooking career took off as his talents showed through. The lively young Lance was known for both his cooking and the parlor tricks he did during meal preparation.
His skills took him far. He became a rather well known cook before he hit his twenties and later moved from his home town to Washington DC. There he opened his restaurant by the name of Mr. Hat Tricks. He was rather famous until the health department closed him down a few years later. A women was muderer in the bathroom and seemingly due to unknow causes.
After a few years, he joined the army. The training was brutal but it kept his mind sharp, it gave him the skills he needed to survive and to defend his country. He became a Soilder with a passion to make a difference. He got his chance only years later when Parel harbor was bomb by the Japanese.
He was one of the first men to step onto the beach and one of the luck bastards that got through the conflict. He watched as many of his brothers died, fear was the only emotion that kept him going until he took his first life. After that point things just seemed to make sense, fear was no longer an option. This harden his resolve and made him tougher and stronger. The beast was out and it wanted to survive.
During the fighting, a grenade went off near Lances left side during a raid on enemy solders. The blast should have killed him but his will was strong. His recovery took months. He rehabilitated himself and after being able to stand on his own, he started to train. He trained his body and mind in the worst conditions possible until he was able to feel agian. The damge to his left side left permanent scars. His emotional scars only healed after he met a woman named Betty. The two fell in love and got married on October, 12 1939.
His life got easier from there on out, he settled down and opened a new restaurant called "Lance's place". He kept it small and perfected his craft, his skill became legend in his home town.
He was approched by a man from somthing called the foundation, they had been tryimg to fimd him for sometime. It seemed his reputation on the battle field as a ruthless killing machine had caught up with him. They wanted a man like Lance on there side, at first he refused there offer but with money running dry and bills piling up he accepted there offer.
All the things he has are from the foundation and where given to him as a show of good faith in his abilities. He has proven a few times he is more than capable of taking down an aggressive individual with nothing but a fork. People are generally scared of Lance because of his large size and stature.
