The Agent

The Agent does whatever is necessary to protect and serve her employer’s best interests. People are
simply resources to be used, abused, and expended. Anyone standing in the way must be removed.
She gathers and analyzes information at an almost impossible speed. Threats demand rapid
responses, and sometimes there are no good choices. The Agent’s job means accepting great costs,
usually in the form of dangers, but also an ever-growing debt to those sacrificed for the greater good.
When this burden finally becomes too heavy, The Agent’s exits have likely already closed, and ‘good’
and ‘evil’ have lost all meaning.
