Quote: “Life finds a way of testing your faith regardless of whether or not you have any.”

Despite his current size, Percival “Percy” Hicks was originally considered to be the runt of the litter. The youngest of  five of boys, he was constantly reminded by his older brothers that they were bigger, stronger and tougher than him. But what Percy lacked in physical strength he more than made up for in will. In order to deal with his brothers ceaseless abuse, he turned inward. Instead of playing sports and games like most kids, he studied meditation, classical music and art. As somewhat of a spiritual prodigy, Percy managed to reach inner peace by puberty.

After high school, Percy joined the peace corps. While working with the corp in Cambodia, a shaman had his home attacked by a few stray soldiers from a rebel militia. Without any formal training or weapons, Percy was able to defeat the soldiers. For the first time in his life, Percy saw the value in fighting for a cause and he soon left the peace corps to join the military.

Upon joining the army, Percy discovered that he had a talent for working in a unit. He followed orders as well as he gave them and epitomized leadership. His level-headed approach to combat and bizarrely insightful tactics were soon noticed by his superiors and as a result he was dubbed “the philosopher.” One such superior was  Commander Allana Givens AKA “Apex”. After working just one mission with Percy, Allana made a request to have him assigned to the DEFCON 5 project with her.

During one unfortunate mission for DEFCON 5, Percy and the entire team were mortally wounded and presumed dead. Yet miraculously Percy, along with his team, all awoke in a hospital days later. But they all awoke changed. Percy in particular had grown from 5’9, 180 pounds to 6’2, 220. He also gained the ability to perpetually build energy and speed with every movement he makes with virtually no upper limits. Unfortunately, this constantly surging energy has left Percy unable to ever sleep again.
