Concept

Phlegmatic Researcher

Aspects

Focused: Kevin tends to lock-on to his objective and stay on its heels, making it his main focus and priority whatever he considers to be his objective at the time; this however can leave him unaware of anything else around him.

Hushed Man: Kevin, being such an abnormally quiet guy, makes most people feel uncomfortable around him for extended periods of time. That is, if they even know he's in the room.

Night Eyes: Kevin can see very well in dark areas, being able to find most things with no trouble. The switch from darkness to light, however, tends to be a bit harder on him than anybody else.

Personal History

Kevin was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming on August 8th, 1983. Growing up, his father took him on hunting trips regularly before his mother died, after which the outings stopped all together. He went to the University of Colorado-Boulder, working towards and eventually receiving a Master Degree in Biochemistry.
He started a career in wildlife research, eventually finding himself in Alaska to study and observe the native wildlife after multiple cases of a mysterious infection spreading throughout the population. While searching for one of the infected animals however, Kevin stumbled upon a creature he’d not seen during his time there. Managing to tranquilize the creature, he brought it back to the laboratory where he kept the majority of his discovery a secret. Kevin began carefully working with it, performing a series of tests and autopsies that lead to exceedingly disturbing results, these of which lead to his first discovery by the Foundation. Months before finally sending in his review of the creature, he was met by members of the Foundation and recruited, being given a place as a junior researcher in Bio-Research Area-12. After more than a year of work there, Kevin was given notice of his transfer to Area-354, Research Department.

Miscellaneous

  • Regrets not getting a Doctorate.
  • Not a big fan of noisy creature. Especially birds.
  • Likes Turtles and Cats.
  • When recruited as a member of the Foundation, he was misplaced during the assignment process and, despite his declining, was sent through a majority of the Espionage training class. He was given conditioning, stealth and firearm training before the error was noticed and corrected. No written evidence of the error was taken.
