Samuel Hawkins grew up on a farm in Iowa. His father was a retired US airforce pilot, and his mother wasn’t home often, as she flew passenger planes for a living. With a parentage like that, it was no wonder that Samuel took to studying airplanes with a lot of energy at a young age.

During his youth, he helped his father out on the farm during the day, and studied books on airplanes and the history of flight by night. He also showed a good aptitude for mechanics while he helped his father, soon becoming fairly proficient at fixing things.

His biggest heroes were the ace pilots of World War I and II, as well as General Patton Sam admired Patton’s direct and to the point behavior.

During college, Sam discovered another love. Fast cars. It was as if vehicles were an extension of his own body. He quickly rose to the top of the local street racing groups, beating all the competition that came his way.

When he finished college, with a degree in engineering, Sam, as everybody expected, enlisted in flight school, and easily aced the course. Then, came an enlistment in the air force. What nobody expected was him to bounce out of basic.

Sam loved flying, but he hated the aura of discipline and authority in the military. He was kicked out for repeated insubordination. After spending a month back home with his parents, his vanished down the back roads of the United States and sought excitement on his own terms.

For the next three years, he worked in South America and Africa as a professional mercenary. Handling mostly helicopters, he flew teams of mercenary commandos to their objectives, waited while they blew up/shot up/kidnapped/rescued/stole said obecjtive, and then flew them out, often being shot at. On two occasions, he handled a MiG fighter jet to level some hard targets, and on a third, he flew a Russian assault helicopter in a ground support mission.

He's also been doing a lot of work as an underground courier. When people needed something transported that was too hot or risky to use a regular courier service, he was there to answer the call. Packages, people, as long as it didn’t go against his code of morals, he would move it. He does most of his courier work in the United States.

Description: Sam stands at about six feet, with a slender but sturdy build. He's not a physically imposing person. He's got red hair that he keeps somewhat long and brown eyes. He's got a nasty scar on his forehead, as well as a burn scar on his left arm, and leg, and a few more scars on his chest and back. He usually wears an old-style aviator's leather jacket and sunglasses.

A slight bulge on the left side of his jacket or suit reveals the position of his custom made, gold plated, pearl handled, specially balanced .357 Colt Python, with the word Hawk engraved on it. It was a gift from a female mercenary that he had a brief, romantic relationship with a year back before they parted on friendly terms.

His current car is a bright red, tricked out Acura 3.2 TL that he takes anywhere he goes, if possible. It's the main reason most people hire him, for getting something or someone from one place to another at velocities that generally violate local speed regulations.

Personality: Despite his flamboyant exterior and behavior on the job, Hawk is all business. When he signs up for a job, he sticks with it, as long his employer holds up his end of the bargain. He prefers to avoid gunfights whenever possible, choosing to outrun his enemies rather than outgun them.

He does do things with a certain style and panache, and never lacks for a witty quip or one-liner when on the job. He activiely seeks excitement. When he's not working, he's generally working on his car, or trouncing the local street racers on their own turf.

Hawk also likes to stay on the right side of morality, he considers it a point of pride that in his years as a freelance soldier of fortune, he's never once engaged in what he considers to be morally wrong activities. He's done a few illegal activities, sure, but never violated his own code of morals.

Background Information:

Kristen was born in 1975 in Northern Maine, only daughter of a potato farmer. A bright young girl, she did very well in public schools, and eventually the family was awarded a scholarship to allow Kristen to attend the prestigious Berkeley Carroll School, a private institution in New York City. It prepared her well for college, and she attended Yale University and the University of Connecticut, getting degrees in Pharmacy, Chemistry, and Biology. After eight years of school, she decided to work overseas before entering the workplace in the States. She left in 2001 to live in Madrid, studying the Influenza virus and possible vaccines. The work was woefully underpaid but rewarding. Eventually, financial concerns led Kristen to leave for the States in 2004. She was offered positions around the country, but settled on a decent paying job in Kirkland, a suburb of Seattle, with Martin Pharmacology. The small pharmaceutical company is a subsidiary of the German corporation Strelitzer Biomedizinisch A.G. The company’s specialty is in drugs for the treatment of mental illness, so Kristen was intrigued by the offer, as she has no expertise in psychology or human behavior. Turns out, they weren’t looking for a lab worker, but someone to work in the field. It wasn’t a huge amount of money, but it seemed like an interesting job. She will act as the company’s agent along with a team of investigators looking after Martin’s interests. Better than the retail and somewhat boring research jobs she was offered elsewhere, that’s for certain. Moving to Seattle, she now rents a small condo in the downtown area, bought a nice car and the gear for field work, and awaits her first assignment with excitement.

Kristen’s expertise lies in Chemistry, Biology, Pharmacy, and Computer application. While not a computer technician, she is an expert at researching difficult or obscure topics on the internet and using just about any software available.


Kristen is a fit young woman, about 5’6”, 115 pounds. Brown hair comes down to her shoulders, but she normally wears it in two short ponytails at the back of her neck. She has green eyes that most men consider her best feature. She is stronger than most women her size, and keeps in shape through consistent work at the gym. She has a reputation as one of those annoying people who can eat whatever she wants and never look the worse for it, but Kirsten knows it comes from hard work. She has a love of fine restaurants, and loves to eat out, preferring Mexican and Italian food. Kristen tends to be shy at first, but opens up relatively quickly after knowing someone for a few days. She is not a very ‘take-charge’ personality, and does her best work when driven by a good leader.

Background Information
By the time he was three years old, Brandon Sharpe had his life outlined for him. His mother would take him to auditions in their clunky VW bus, brush his hair and tell him how special he was. When he was five years old, he landed his first acting job selling cereal. As he grew older the jobs became more and more prestigious, until finally he was approached by Kenneth Marcon and asked to join a new singing group called The New Rebels.

They were an overnight sensation. They toured Europe and South America, and sold out stadiums in the States at an ever increasing pace. Brandon spent most of his teenage years on busses and planes. His mother would call him from the huge house that he bought for his family to live in, and tell him how exciting it all was and how special he was. It was quite a ride, instant stardom and fame. Then, overnight, it all disappeared. He had to read about his mother's embezzlement of his fortune in a British magazine. Tony, one of the other bandmembers was arrested for raping a 14 year old girl after a concert in Finland. The bandmembers were growing older, and so were their audiences, and in the time it took to snap fingers he had turned into just another loathesome has-been from the entertainment scene. Tony fled the country, and the rest of the band spent most of the next half-decade checking themselves into rehab and being sued.

Eventually Brandon cleaned himself and decided to make himself a new life, something as far removed from the music industry and the stage as he could find. The problem he found, was that out-of-work ex-boy band members aren't given much credibility in the real world. He wasted another several long months filling out paperwork and job applications only to be told time and time again that his services were unwanted. Eventually Brandon sold everything he had, bought a camera, and went to Rwanda for what he initially thought of as a vacation. That was a few months before major hostilities broke out between the Hutu and Tutsis, and what followed is still a vague blur in Brandon's mind that only seems real when he looks at the pictures. Eventually he escaped through Virunga National Park with the aid of other refugees through disease infested camps and back to the States where he once again gained minor noteriety when some of his photographs of the conflict were published in Time magazine. Since then he's taken on assignments around the world, from photographing illegal fishing operations off the coast of Newfoundland to an extended stay in Brazil where he spent months living with Columbian rebels that operated from across the border.

Brandon doesn't really consider himself a performer anymore, though he's still got a stack full of memorabilia and gold records in a box in the closet. He's old enough now to realize just how much of The New Rebel's success rode on the production machine that drove it, and just now coming to terms with the idea that he just might be remembered for something else besides being a member of a forgotten band.

Besides himself Brandon regularly visits his parents and sister in Birmingham, where he tries to be "just Brandon" and play with his nieces. It's hard sometimes to describe what he does now for a living, perhaps even more so than it was describing life on the road with The New Rebels. He's more or less come to terms with his mother's misuse of his fortune, though he worries about her using drugs again all the time. What's left of that money and the royalties from The New Rebels tends to go to his family rather than vacations.

Description -
Physically Brandon is tall, almost with the body of a male dancer. The sort of build that someone only gets from performing on stage for nearly a decade every night and then drinking cheap tequila until it goes a little soft. If his face were cleanshaven would be astonishingly youthful, but he tends to keep a scrubby little beard to try and disguise that fact. His clothes are kept in a state of practiced disshevelment and he wears dark sunglasses underneath his faded ball caps. He carries an air of brash disregard about him, that sometimes turns to haunted silences. Even when he's dealing with corporate customers Brandon tends to be a "sports coat and jeans" sort of guy, and along with his ratty ball caps it's sort of become part of his mystique. He's been the clotheshorse before and jetted around the world in a private Lear, and he's got scars along his side where he crawled in the mud for three weeks trying to avoid being captured by Hutu death squads. He's not impressed with wealth anymore, and isn't about to pander to people who are without good reason.

Background Information –
Sirk Decker was born on November 14, 1977 in Elmira Ontario. Sirk was the third of four children, 2 boys and 2 girls. His father Arthur was a tradesman while his mother Jean was a secretary.

Sirk’s early years were completely ordinary growing up like many boys in his town grew up. Winters spent playing hockey and summers spent camping and fishing with friends. Sirk didn’t excel in school but he knew one thing from a young age, and that was when he grew up he was going to be an archaeologist.

Sirk began his formal training in 1996 at the University of Toronto completing a bachelors of arts in 2000. With his undergrad complete Sirk finished his master’s degree at the University of Western Ontario and then returned to complete his PhD at Toronto.

A year into his PhD things looked pretty good, his future seemed all but certain, school was going smoothly, his family was healthy and happy, and he was engaged to a beautiful woman named Rebecca he’d met in first year at Toronto.

However in 2003 things would change. Sirk accepted an offer to do field work on a recently discovered Incan site in the mountains of Peru. Traveling with his wife to Peru Sirk had no idea what fate had in store for him.

Two weeks after beginning work on the excavation the camp was attacked by Marxist rebels. A group of rebels known as the Fourth Sword of Marxism and led by a man named Abimael Guzman attacked the camp and captured of killed most of Sirk’s colleagues. The northerners were taken prisoner to be ransomed back to their families in the States and Canada. On that day Sirk’s soul diead as he helplessly watched as many of the women, including his fiancée, were raped and murdered.

After three months of captivity in a mountain camp Sirk and his colleagues were finally rescued. Private contractors working on behalf of the victim’s families stormed the camp. There was a brief but intense fire fight, however with most of the rebel’s ‘political’ leaders away, the peasant fighters did not have the heart to die for the lives of seven foreigners and quickly retreated into the jungle. During the rescue Sirk had ‘handled himself well,’ or so he was told. The only thing he knew for sure was that he had killed, and that killing had filled a part of the vast emptiness witnessing Rebecca’s murder had created inside him. And so, shortly after the evacuation helicopter sped away Sirk knew he had found his second calling in life.

After that Sirk tried to return to his old life. But the ache inside him made everything seem so hollow and worthless. His head was filled with the horror of witnessing his fiancée’s murder and the anger and sorrow on the faces of her family. He kept the charade up for a few months but knew he had to fill the void inside him before it consumed him. He had been told in the hours following the evacuation, in those moments of instant camaraderie created by near death, that if he ever wanted a career change he knew where to look.

With that in mind he flew out to the west coast and presented himself at the offices of Archo-Tech Securities Corp.

A year and a half of training, traveling, missions, women, drugs, and killing had not filled the void. They treated the symptoms for a short period but the pain and self loathing always came back. If one thing was for certain Sirk needed to find his third calling in life…
