Maxwell O'Connell

Player Name



Maxwell "Max" O'Connell


GI Physicist


Mind of an Army: His time in the army makes him feel stronger while in a team, but paranoid and visibly distressed while alone for extended periods of time.
Close to the Edge : Max doesn't do well when put under pressure. If pushed far enough in any situation, he often tends to push back. Violently.
A Regular Einstein : Great with everything scientific, he has a natural grasp of reality and how things work. When things don’t go that way, he starts to feel distressed and often overly anxious with his loss of understanding.

Personal History

Max was born in North Carolina. Soon after his high school graduation, Jack joined the US Army under the 3rd SFG and served until he had been promoted to Specialist, then was given an honorable discharge for undocumented reasons.

After his service, Max received a scholarship to attend MIT for a PhD in Theoretical Physics. When Foundation recruiters within MIT heard of Max's abilities, they approached him with the chance to join. He agreed under the circumstance that he would be given his PhD early. After pulling a few strings, he joined the ranks of the Foundation research team, and has recently been assigned to Area 354.

Died 10:00 PM 11/2/12 Under a pile of rubble with one arm and shrapnel in his chest. He took that damned demon frog with him through.

Date: March 14, 2006

He has recently let his hair grow out longer and seems to have an ever present stubble.
Rarely refers to himself as "Doctor" anything, not because he's ashamed or anything, but because he doesn't find it necessary for his job to be called that.
Polite but straight forward.

May he Rest in Peace, the man who had done no wrong but still suffered in the end.
