Third Eye Detective Agency
Former Army Ranger
Alvaro is a 29 year old Latino-American of tremendous size. He’s always been big, and was a natural athlete in school, but turned down a football scholarship to join the Army in 2002. He was driven by a strong sense of duty and national pride (his parents came to the country illegally before he was born, and he’s always felt like he should give something back), and he served with distinction and honor for nine years. Alvaro volunteered for any and all specialized training he could get, from jump school to explosive ordinance disposal, to flight training. If the Army offered a badge for it, he rated Expert. He also volunteered for any dangerous deployment he could get involved with, and spent most of his nine years of service in the Middle East on special missions. It was on one such mission that Alvaro’s squad was attacked by … something. Something that defied description and understanding. Something against which all of his advanced training and weaponry were utterly useless. Alvaro only survived through luck and intense fortitude. The rest of his squad were not so fortunate. And when Alvaro managed to drag himself back into basecamp and report the incident, his report was dismissed as the delusional ravings of a badly injured man with PTSD. The Army tried to treat his condition, but Alvaro refused to accept that he’d hallucinated the incident. And eventually, the Army gave up and dismissed him from service under Chapter 8. For the next two years, Alvaro tried to make a life for himself. But possessing a myriad of very specific skills with almost no real-world application, and an official record of mental instability doesn’t make for an easy time. And he never gave up searching for an answer to what had happened to his teammates in the desert. Now, he hopes he’s found a group that can give him a place, as well as answer some of those questions about the unknown nature of the world he lives in.
