Biographical Details[edit]

Alias: Black Knight

Name: Montgomery "Monty" Black

Date of Birth: January 18th 1945

Character Notes:[edit]

Monty Black is a sociopath, pure and simple. Even before he came into his powers he regarded the people around him as worth less than bugs. Even as a child, he was obsessed with weapons and killing. He has always hated people being friendly to him, and will respect people more when they recognise that he is a cold blooded monster, and treat him as one. In fact he gets a masochistic kick out of being treated as human detritus.

Monty wouldn't have made it as a US Soldier if it hadn't been for the Vietnam War - as it was, the Army saw there was a use for a man like him in black ops. He gladly signed up to the secretive Shadow Soldier Corps, allowing the government to delete his identity and rebuild him into a tool of covert war.

When his powers activated (on September 11th, 1962, deep in the Vietnam jungles) the SSC didn't want to let him go, but the Enhanced Soldier Program has always had ways of spotting new metahumans, and they soon found him out. Within a month he was recruited to a new cause, "reprogrammed" and brought into the ESP's own "deniable assets" division.

Monty is less than human, and he recognises that. He sees himself as worthless - a tool and a weapon and nothing more. Deep down, part of him recognises that this isn't a good thing, but he's become so used to this self perception that this is all he knows to be...
