History

Family (or Creators)

  • Jane Edison (mother, deceased)
  • Matthew Edison (father)
  • Jason Edison (older brother, deceased)

Pre-RP

You could say that Adam was born into violence. Pregnant Jane Edison had been mugged, stabbed and left for dead. The only medical facilities around these particular slums of Funky City was a third rate clinic that basically ripped Adam from the warmth of the womb. Thus started his life under the abusive heel of his drunk father. Adam reached his childhood with a little help from his older brother, Jason. Though life was hard and brutal.

His little corner of slums in Funky City was as rough as others. Adam grew up into street fights, robberies and gang wars. It was no wonder that when Adam was 12, his brother was killed. Adam was tough as nails after that. Even though he was quickly embroiled into a gang he was known as an outsider and a wildcard. His leader even remarked that he was a 'Rabid dog best turned loose on only your worst enemy.'

In one brutal gang fight Adam had flown into rage and was there senselessy stabbing a corpse when the NPF arrived. Being quickly overwhelmed Adam was imprisoned. Faced with the charges of multiple crimes throughout his life Adam was looking at dying. He chose to be enlisted in the DION Marines to carry out his sentencing.

Many things changed for Adam when he arrived at the penal garrison. He was no longer the baddest man in his neighborhood. Sure, he was still high on the ladder, just not the top. The other change was his commanding officer. The Commandant was a big, loud and aggressive man. He constantly pushed the inmates towards sharpening their anger and aggression. Using it to focus on their goal. Let the brain do some of the driving since the body already knew the moves. Adam came to understand the point. It wasn't about turning off the aggression, it was learning to keep it at the ready. It was similar to a snake, coiled and ready to strike but waiting for that moment. He struggled at first but found it became easier and easier to focus even so far as to be able to work with others and perform certain unit duties. He was particularly good at Breach and Board maneuvers. Even with this new outlook forming, Adam still kept his shell of brovado and aggression. However he soon became a decent soldier.
