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 Perception 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. (+3 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 Stealth if breaking into a building)

Personal History:

Graham was raised in Ireland to two loving parents who worked hard to give him a good life. 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 he left home with the money he made and moved to Italy in an attempt to find love. After his pursuit of love failed he found two passions. Mythology and Firearms.
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.
One day he stumbled upon a police channel. He monitored this for days until he heard an unusual broadcast where the police chief told his officers to keep citizens away from a specific part of the city. Graham's curiosity was peaked at the vague wording, so he grabbed his revolver and decided to go investigate. When he saw people being turned away he snuck past the officers. As he approached a building with tape around it he heard shouts. Eager to be a hero he ran into the building with his gun drawn.
As he went up a stairwell a panicked man in maroon robes came running down while holding a strange object with markings on it. He screamed at Graham for help while attempting to claw at his face. In an attempt to defend himself he pushed the man off him and shot him in the leg.The strange object glowed and the man somehow got to his feet and lunged at him. In a moment of desperation he shot the man in the head. The object fell from the man's hand and he went limp. A few seconds later men in military-like outfits ran down the stairwell and saw Graham standing over the man with his gun still raised.They calmed him down and asked him about what he saw. Afterwards they asked him if he was looking for a job. Graham asked if fighting things like the man would be involved and once his suspicions were confirmed he told them he was. They sent him home but a few weeks later he was invited to join the foundation.
