  • Born in West Africa, taken as a war captive as a small boy.
  • His adoptive father, Thomas Henry Warburton, Viscount [TBD - looking at real ones to twist] bought him at a slave market in Salaga (northern Ghana).
  • Wrapped up in him wanting to prove that nurture, rather than nature determined a man's character.
  • Taken back to England and raised with his own son and daughters; always told he was "found while on expedition".
  • Unlike the Viscount's biological son, James, excelled at sports and martial studies the Viscount (a xenophile and dabbler in many things) favoured.
  • Both boys joined the Viscount while he was on diplomatic post in Singapore; encouraged to learn the local fighting styles.
  • When they returned to England, they brought an instructor with them.
  • Went to university [no idea what profession he was being aimed towards - perhaps law?].


  • As an adult he was framed (by his adoptive brother, James) for murder and robbery (a servant was killed during a break-in, the stolen goods planted in his possessions).
  • His father's enemies were involved in the plot, police and judges were bribed.
  • Tried and sentenced to death; sentence carried out but his hanging was staged to make it look like he died.
  • Transferred to the lab of an alchemist [who needs a sinister Dr Somebody name] trying to perfect the moral character of a man - by "fixing" convicts.
  • His Elixir to Grant Virtuous Morality was a failure; perhaps because Ajax wasn't corrupt and debase in the first place.
  • Instead he was granted enhanced strength, stamina and healing, his physicality boosted to the limit of human potential (and beyond).
  • Feigning death after the transformation, he was able to break free and stole a sample of the elixir as he escaped.

The Calling

  • Found at some point by agents of the Ministry offering him a way to get his life back (since he was legally dead and a convicted criminal).
  • In return for service and he vial of the elixir he took, they would give him an identity and a job, and work behind the scenes to clear his (real) name, along with find out how it happened.
  • Some months into working for the Ministry, he began to get progressively more ill - their alchemist discovered the elixir was unstable and to avoid side-effects, he needed weekly doses of a tonic that brought the alchemical processes in his body back into equilibrium.
  • The Ministry's alchemist theorises that by adding specially-designed tonics to those already resident in his body, other effects might be possible.
