ACRO Operative: Ender aka Tom Knight

Background: Former Delta Force Operative - Specialty: Sniper. Takes, one shot, one kill, to an almost mystical level. Court-martialed and sentenced to life in the brig. His release was bargained for by ACRO.

Skill: Excedosapien - includes lightening fast reflexes, beyond normal eyesight and speed.

Notes: Is so strong-minded that psychics can’t break into his mind unless he lets them, which is sometimes necessary when Operative is in the field.

Notorious for not checking in when on missions.

Eight years of ACRO service - no one has ever been out with him socially and his address is not public knowledge.

Rumors surrounding this operative:

Potential ACRO Operative: Kira Donovan (alias)

Occupation: Formerly considered one of the world’s best military and police dog trainers. Currently in hiding, thanks to arrest warrants and botched Itor attempts to kidnap her. Recently located in Idaho, working under the table at a privately-owned animal sanctuary.

Skill: Animal Whisperer - Extraordinarily powerful gift allows for communication with animals on a level not entirely understood by ACRO staff. Exceptional hearing and sense of smell. Suspected of having instincts and physiology more closely resembling an animal’s than a human’s. Case in point: Ms. Donovan goes into a form of “heat” once per year.

Rap Sheet: Known crimes include disorderly conduct at animal rights rallies, theft of caged animals used for fur, and sabotage of laboratory facilities. Suspected of arson (slaughter house fires) and convincing orcas to sink a whaling vessel. Has earned a place on the U.S. government’s terrorist watch list.

Mission priority: Highest. Extremely Urgent. ACRO psychics have determined that Itor is moving to acquire Ms. Donovan. Intel has revealed that Itor may intend to use subject’s unique physiology to create a biological weapon. If successful, the power to kill millions will be at Itor’s fingertips. If unsuccessful, Ms. Donovan could potentially use her gift to harness the loyalty of armies of animals, perhaps insects, to use as weapons. Subject must not be allowed to fall into Itor’s hands.

Notes: Is extremely paranoid and a conspiracy theorist. Distrusts all levels of government and has been uncooperative in the past. No contact with family. Trusts few. Strict vegan.

File Updates From Field Agent:
1. Ms. Donovan claims to be immune to human diseases
2. Subject’s mating needs require seminal fluids from male humans
3. Subject’s mating needs require fluids every four hours
4. Subject must mate or die.

Is so powerful that even those resistant to hypnosis are affected on some level. It is unknown if his skill works on animals.

Notes: Trance was a Dom for many years. Although he never allowed himself to form a close relationship with any single submissive he worked with, he was still the perfect choice to try to tame the beast that lives inside Ulrika Jaeger.
