Personal Background

Subject is an orphan of unknown parents born around 785 A.S. on Pittsburgh. Up until 799 A.S. the subject was a foster child at Allegheny District Orphanage before going through several foster families around the planet. He was described by his foster parents as a typical introvert - shy, quiet and attuned. It is believed that for these characteristics he was considered an easy target for older boys. A number of incidents in which the subject was a victim of both physical and mental violence were reported throughout the years. It is worth noting that two subject's molesters died shortly after the subject was moved to different foster family. According to LPI reports Sam Turner died in an anaphylactic shock caused by hyper-allergic reaction to synth paste, while Jim Garret broke his neck after falling from a window. Preliminary investigation did not reveal any links between two accidents and the subject.
