Bio: Now fully six months past his 25th birthday, St. John Markham is the eldest son of the Markham shipping dynasty, which has controlled a significant fraction of the New England shipping trade for generations. Raised on an estate outside of Boston, St. John spent most of his youth among the New England gentry. After an expensive turn at a British public school, he returned to the states to attend Harvard. Bored and dissolute, and having heard the stories of the Bureau of Investigation's work taking down the bandits of the 20s and early 30s, St. John convinced his skeptical father to pull the strings necessary to get him into the Bureau of Investigation, by exploiting the family's connection to Hoover's old mining boss, Edward Hooper.
