Personal History:

MIchael Castellano was raised in an Italian-American Household in Newark, New Jersey. Born in 1922, he served with the American Armed Forces in 1940 in the European theater, until 1944.

His father, like his father before him, all the way back unto Renaissance Florence, was trained in the famous treatise of Italian Longsword by Fiore Di Liberi, and as such, practices the art to this day. Carrying a longsword in to combat certainly earns him some strange looks, but there's no denying that it's effective in the right circumstances.

After leaving the US Army, Michael worked as a translator in Venice for the US State Department, before returning to New Jersey in 1954.

The Foundation took notice of Michael when during an outbreak of SCP-███, Michael Castellano fought off an instance of SCP-████-1. Rather than amnesticize him on the spot, he was offered a chance to work for the Foundation on the Italian Front, as a translator, and MTF-Agent.
