Personal History:

Lloyd McCune was born to a poor family in South Boston in 1931. At the age of 12, McCune's mother and sister were murdered in the streets by Jewish gang leader Herschel Stein. Enraged by the negligence of the legal system, due to Steins control over the city, McCune set himself on a career in law. He worked diligently in his studies through his adolescence and ended up graduating at 16. Through his determination to law, Lloyd breezed through his undergraduate program and subsequently law school. He started a small law firm with his roommate, Ronald Hardwick, at the young age of 25 and began taking on as many murder cases as he possibly could. He eventually tracked down a murder case against the aging Herschel Stein.

Lloyd intended to bring his A-game to the trial and put Stein behind bars. However, Stein was known for having all prosecutors against him… disabled. In the night, one of Stein's surgeons - that is to say, an organ salesman - kidnapped McCune and severely damaged his vocal cords so that he could no longer speak. McCune could no longer act as the proactive lawyer that he was so keen to be. Dismayed, he turned to another faction of the law. Lloyd became a detective, privately working for his confederate Ronald Hardwick, who became the primary prosecutor of their operation. McCune found that he was much better as an investigator than a prosecutor, finding all of the evidence needed against Stein in secret and getting him in prison before any of his henchmen had time to attack Hardwick. He also managed to solve a wide array of violent crimes over the next year, earning renown as an investigator. McCune now lives with guilt for killing an innocent family and putting them on display to their patriarch, who worked with Stein, to get information. He used knowledge gained from past murder cases to ensure that he was never caught.

Getting a high-influence crime lord locked away is no small feat, and the Foundation noticed this. At 27, Lloyd McCune was drafted by the Foundation as their field investigator in exchange for a collar that would enable speech again.
