Personal History:

Jamison Barnes was an only child born August 13, 1923 to a Ex-Military father and his stay at home mother in a small town near the middle of Michigan. After the first world war, his father had begun work in one of the GM factories a few towns away, leaving the boy alone with his mothers most days.

He was always a kind and intelligent young boy, getting along well with other students at school, often telling tales about his father to them that his father had told him. These wartime stories inspired him, Jamison deciding to get the best out of what his father had fought for. After his graduation he went straight into college, taking classes in mathematics, literature, and history. His grades were exceptionally high, graduating with a masters degree in Archival Sciences in 1948 at the age of 26.

In his search for work however, he found himself unable to find a job that he felt suited him, finding most either didn't pay well enough, or were quite simply too boring. Frustrated, he decided to follow in his father footsteps and join the Military, taking the entry exam and getting some interesting results back. Because of both his test results and current degree, he was approached by the CIA and offered a job as both an agent and an Archivist. He accepted this position, and completed his training by 1950.

He worked with the CIA for 5 solid years, until one day he had come across some rather strange data while organizing some of their most recent discoveries. People in the hundreds seemed to be disappearing from areas that were generally deemed completely safe from threats, and with these odd disappearances also came the introduction of people who had seemingly never existed. Suspicious, he went on a personal mission to figure out the cause, and was soon lead to the SCP foundation who offered him a job similar to his current one, with the addition that he would be working with possibly supernatural cases. After thinking about this a bit, he decided to join, interested to see what sort of events might unfold.
