Player Name

Wallace

Name

Willfred Wallace

Concept

Pragmatic agent with undercover training.

Aspects

Calm under fire: Learning to keep your nerve is critical for an intelligence operative. As such, Will doesn't get spooked or frightened easily even in dangerous situations. These nerves of steel can help him keep his wits about him. But being too calm can breed complacency. If he's caught off guard, he has trouble reacting quickly enough.

Multicultural: Will's family is from all over the place and he's come into contact with several different cultures. Knowing about the traits and history of other nations has helped Will put others at ease. However, Will feels like he lacks roots of his own. Being able to experience several different cultures without really being a part of any of them has left him feeling distractingly depressed at times.

Private thoughts: You'll need a lot more than a penny for his thoughts. Will doesn't enjoy it when someone is trying to poke around inside his head. He's the type of guy that doesn't really like it when people can read his mood. He often resorts to lying about it and he's gotten quite good at it. On the other hand, when someone does manage to mess with his head, Will gets easily agitated.

Personal History

Wallace was born in the New York city metropolitan area on 11/11/1981. His origins were humble – his family often had trouble making ends meet. The financial difficulties that Wallace's family suffered almost prevented him from going to college. They managed to borrow enough money to send him to a state school where Wallace double majored in International Affairs and Criminology. After his graduation, he found himself hard-pressed to find a job in his field. After a few months of searching, he decided to sign up for the police academy and pursue a career in law enforcement, most likely due to financial pressure.

Wallace eventually quit the police force and applied to the National Clandestine Service (NCS) - the clandestine arm of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He was hired as an operations officer. Wallace was assigned to Eastern Europe as a result of his heritage and his knowledge of Slavic languages (his mother was a Bulgarian immigrant). His primary duty was to gather intelligence on suspected terrorist smuggling networks that ran through the region. Wallace attracted the attention of the Foundation in the summer of 2012. He was assigned to assist in Europol's initial intelligence gathering operations on the Burgas bus bombing. Thanks in part to his effort, European Union law enforcement agencies managed to connect the bombing to Hezbollah. This, in turn, eventually led to the EU's voting to list the military branch of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. Wallace was contacted by a Foundation headhunter around the end of 2012. After his recruitment, he was shifted around to several different assignments, eventually ending up in Area-354.

Miscellaneous

Wallace is a 6 foot tall, heavy set man with very short hair and a small scar on his upper left cheek - the result of a bar brawl from his college days. He has a preference for wearing Hawaiian shirts when off duty in warm weather. His mother made him take piano lessons when he was young and he turned out to be a rather skilled musician. Wallace also enjoys (and is rather good at) playing poker in his spare time.

Wallace's father is a man of Scottish descent who died in a car accident when Will was very young. Will's mother was a Bulgarian immigrant. She's the primary reason that Will is bilingual. She died of leukemia when Wallace was in his mid-20s. His only remaining relatives are an aunt and an uncle that live in Memphis, TN.
