Character Bio:


Nathaniel Hale West was born July 4th, 1993 to Luther and Fabiola (Saint-Juste) West.  He was born in Century Station and grew up in the Lennox neighborhood of Brisby Flats.  He is an only child as his parents were affected by the radiation from the Winslow incident.  His Father was a U.S. Army clerk at the Military building on the out-skirts of C.S.  Both his parents were killed by a new ColorPunk gang when he was in Junior-High.  He was luckily taken to The Giving Tree by family friend and young CSPD patrol officer Stanley Allen (Who just happened to be the one who first “arrested” West when he was younger and a “trouble-maker”).  Upon graduating High School, he enlisted as an Infantry Soldier.

He was quickly recognized as a potential Elite Soldier, groomed and trained as such.  Other “Secret” parts of the Military/Government recognized his recessive genetic abilities (always knew an ambush was coming and was never surprise attacked).  He was funneled into Sector and given (unknown to him) experimental genetic engineering to enhance his innate abilities.  The experiment was performed on others, but since they lacked the recessive bloodline similar to West, it was a complete failure (Even cloning was tried, but also failed).  Unfazed by these failures, Sector assigned West as a “Golem” in Sector 10.  He was designated a “point-man” in all the units and missions he was assigned, because of his abilities.  He was also trained as an Master Sniper and would often do “solo” missions because of his abilities.  Every unit and mission he was assigned was extremely successful, above and beyond the “normal” stats for the work he performed.

After the many “situations” in Century Station he was approached to be re-designated as a “Wraith” and assigned to C.S.  He accepted, mainly because he wanted to “return home”, but he also had heard the rumors of ShakeDown aka PVT. Damien Sweetwater, whom he considered a traitor to his country and his old neighborhood (they grew up together in Lennox and The Giving Tree) and PaPa Zombie (He had heard of the atrocities through his Mother, whom immigrated from Haiti) terrorizing his home town and old neighborhood.

He was officially retired (not in the same sense as Prodigal) from the U.S. Army as a Master Sargent and relocated to C.S.  He took up residence in The High Tower (modest second floor, corner apartment, North West side of building).  He took a part-time job as a fill-in security guard and in-house Detective (above-board employment) with the building and does part-time fill-in security (“Cooler”, paid under the table, side hustle) at The Skull & Rose.

Shortly after taking up residence in The High Tower, he crossed paths with Oakley Hubbard. At first Hubbard thought West might be the next “bad” person in his sights; however, while crazy, he is not stupid and recognized “something” in West that told him that he wasn’t the “bad” person that Hubbard was looking for…

Unofficially he surveils the local gangs, criminals and thugs, reporting all intelligence of Major operations to either his Primary Handler (Code-Name Silent Pirate), in Sector 10, or minor operations to Detective Stanley Allen (Code-Name Babatunde), of the CSPD (The very same).  He has also been forced to interact (fight) various members of different ColorPunks and other “local” gangs.  They were dumb enough to try and commit various crimes against West.  At first, he just “bloodied noses”; however, when some came back for “revenge” or retaliation, he was forced to “defend” himself (he has racked up a bit of a kill count for being “retired”).  He has always tried to use restraint when “defending” himself. This is actually a more “black-book” part of his unofficial assignment.  He is given “key” targets to be “sidelined”, temporarily or permanently.  Elaborate plans are made by him to “accidentally” interact with these key targets (Groups or individuals), then they are “sidelined” when West is “forced” to defend himself.  By “sidelining” these targets, certain pivotal activities are stopped, either temporarily or permanently.

West has been given a certain amount of leeway when it comes to dealing with certain “lower echelon” crimes that are well under the radar of Sector 10 or are considered petty crimes by CSPD. He has carte blanche. He is allowed to deal with them as he pleases. For the most part, he “teaches” them a hard lesson. Every once in a while they learn a permanent lesson. His extra-extra-curricular activities have gone on unnoticed for the most part. Every once in a while one of his “lessons” comes to the light of his Sector 10 handler and Sector 10 leadership. He is usually given a verbal reprimand and told not to do it again. Lately, he has been stepping up his lessons, he feels his unofficial work just hasn’t been having much of an effect and he can’t get his leaders to see or understand what he sees every day. He has become borderline vigilant in his efforts. Choosing to “sideline” targets in a permanent fashion over a temporary one when he has the choice and sometimes when he doesn’t.

His apartment looks like a typical modest clean, middle class, bachelor pad; however, it has been secretly modified to suit his unofficial assignment.  Hidden compartments, stash holes, pistol holsters, knife holsters, surveillance & radio equipment, armory and various other pieces of useful “black-ops” equipment.  When officially working as a Security Guard/In-House Detective, in his building, he carries a standard “Cop-Piece” 9MM, collapsible baton and combat bush knife all on his police-style patrol belt.  While “off-duty” he carries a modern Colt .45, in a concealing shoulder holster, he has the extended ammo magazine, with 4 spares.  He also has the combat bush knife and baton (both concealed), along with a 4 piece set of throwing knives.

He is not married and has no children that he is aware of.  He dates (Heterosexual), but often it is an unknowing cover for some OP, or a one-night-stand for his “needs”.
