Specialties
  • Eavesdropper: 4. Graham has gotten a knack for listening in on conversations over the years and has an easier time of it than others. By blending into crowds, hiding in bushes, or pretending to be asleep nearby, he is able to learn information he shouldn't with ease. (+4 to Sneak while eavesdropping on conversations)
  • Hero Complex: 4. Graham hates it when people pick on the defenseless. When he was gathering information in Italy he had seen terrible things. He once saw a man chloroform a woman and try to drag her in his van. Graham could not stand by and see this. After dispatching the assailant he took the unconscious woman to the nearest hospital on foot. He realized how hard it is to carry someone and decided to learn the best way to carry someone so he could save them as fast as possible. (+4 to Agility when dragging unconscious teammates.)
  • Trespassing is Always Useful: 4. Graham spent his youth gaining information in less than legal ways and as a result knows how to get around building without being caught. On his first attempt at it his results weren't as good as he would have hoped. Getting into the building was easy, but getting out once the police were called was a different story. When he heard the police shout for him to come out he had nearly had a heart attack, but by listening to their footsteps and and jumping out a window on the third floor he narrowly avoided them. (+4 to Sneak if breaking into a building)

Personal History:

Graham was born in Ireland during 1933 to two loving parents who worked hard to give him a good life in. Unfortunately this meant they weren't home most of the time. Graham spent his time roaming the streets and listening in on conversations. He even made money selling secrets to anyone who needs them. Once eavesdropping wasn't enough to gain information he decided that breaking and entering was a good way to gather information. He learned to break into houses and get out without being seen. Although he had a few run ins with the cops in the process. Throughout his entire time in school he had sold information this way. As soon as he finished high school in 1951 he left home with the money he made and moved to Italy to broaden his horizons. While he was there he found two passions. Mythology and Firearms.

He went to college in 1953 until 1957 when he graduated with a Mythology Degree. He found tales of ancient creatures and heroes fascinating and sometimes dreamed of being a hero in one of these stories. As swords and bows were impractical in this day and age he decided that hot lead was a fair alternative. He found particular enjoyment from revolvers and decided to focus on them. His passion for Mythology became obsession as his urge to be a hero grew. He would travel for miles at the slightest rumor of something extraordinary happening. His skills in eavesdropping he learned as a youth came in handy in this regard. Whether he was learning information himself or trading information he spent a large amount of time gathering information he shouldn't have. Trespassing was also a useful skill to have if someone didn't want to talk. Unfortunately he only found whispers of secret societies with no leads. After exhausting all his other options he would often listen into radio channels in the hopes of finding something unusual.

He was fruitless in his attempts though but was regularly approached by a man asking about different things. Whenever he was asked for information about anything, something would happen there. When the man asked if there was any strange activity around a certain building, Graham decided to stake it out.

While he was staking out the building he heard gunfire and strange noises. After a while men in military uniforms came out with strange monster riddled with bullet holes and human corpses who were mangled beyond recognition. While he was watching this he was found by one of the men and taken away by into a small room. The man who asked him for information came and asked how much he saw. After learning what Graham knew he acknowledged the useful information he provided regularly and gave him two choices. Join their organization and help them stop things like the monsters, or be given medicine to make him forget all of what happened. Graham chose to remember what happened and help them stop it.
