Basic Info:

Player: Aphex_

Position: Field Surgeon (in training) / Surgical Assistant

Demeanor: Elias is your average nervous twenty-something with a quiet tone but a loud mind. He generally keeps to himself outside of the Medical wing, but once you get to know him, he's quite the charmer.

Nature: Elias is still inexperienced in the field, but in terms of book-smarts and trivia, he's got it all. Once he gets going on a topic of his expertise, he'll never shut up about it until it's too late.

Description: Agent Clark stands roughly 5'6 at 120 lbs. He keeps his hair neat, if a bit long for his otherwise conservative style. He can usually be seen sporting more fashionable horn-rimmed glasses with his everyday wear.

Personal History:

Elias Clark, born 1933 to a Danish mother and French-Canadian father, grew up in the Ontario Provence of Canada. His father, the bread-winner, was a surgeon's assistant in their home town of Kingston, Ontario but was eventually drafted into the Second World War; this left Elias and his mother to fend for themselves after his passing one year later, with Mrs. Clark going into teaching at one of the local schools. It was there, assisting his mother while still in school himself, that Elias bloomed into his scholarly self. Academically speaking, Agent Clark is a gifted individual, readily and easily memorizing information for any given task; this is particularly evident in the previously mentioned time span in which he was enrolled in private secondary schools, mostly at the behest of his mother.

Of Agent Clark's other academic talents, he has a particular knack for surgical work, despite his lack of in-field experience. During his second year of university in Quebec, Agent Clark was contacted by a Foundation front company with a guarantee for a job after his tenure, as long as he was willing to accept. Agent Clark accepted, and at the age of twenty-five, he joined the Specialty Professional Care company; after a training and indoctrination term of roughly eight months, Agent Clark was transferred to Mobile Task Force Psi-7 as a medical attachment and surgeon's assistant.

Miscellaneous:

The nickname 'Zed' developed from Agent Clark's indecisive nature, originally as a joke. The nickname has stuck thus far.
