Personality

"mr. Fun Machine":
Perhaps it is his past and unwillingness to let people in, but Grant comes off as a very serious person. He has been accused sarcastically of being: "Mr. Fun Machine.", and in most cases this could not be further from the truth. He is not exactly the man you would see on the dance floor or even having fun at all. However, there have been glimpses of a smile from time to time and he even has been known to make a joke from time to time. Perhaps he is not a robot afterall.

By the Book:
Agent Ward is a man who goes by protocol and the book. In fact he goes by the book so often that many believe he actually wrote "the book". Protocol is in place for a reason and Grant is a man who follows it rughgt down to the punctuation.

I Got This:
Grant is pretty confident in his abilities. He seldom questions himself and whatever he determines to be the right course of action he will stick to and execute. It is not arrogance, tho people do confuse it as such; he is just confident in what he is capable of doing.

Papa Bear:
Despite not being hte most social memeber of SHIELD, Agent Ward is very protective of its members. On numerous occasions he has been known to put his own life in danger to see to the safety of a SHIELD agent or a civilian. He will say it is about duty, but perhaps he actually does care?

Tough Nut To Crack:
Grant is a tough person to get to know. He does not usually let people in, choosing to forego deep emotional attachment. In his mind, emotions can be a weakness and to share such things only makes you weaker. However, some have claimed to get past that tough outer shell.

Strong Willed:
Grant is a very strong-willed indvidual. In many situations where many people would passout or mentally crack, Grant is abble to withstand it. It has been said that he has laughed and thrown sarcasm through torture, and has even been able to lie his way through a lie detector exam. In short, his mind and will is stonger than he is physically.

Grant has spent years for S.H.I.E.L.D as an undercover agent, living for months at a time as someone else. He is also well-trained in stealth, disguise and infiltration. Again, Maria Hill gave him the highest marks in espionage since Romanov herself, something he is quite proud of.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Double-Agent:
HYDRA will show it's ugly head at some point. His loyalty is divided, but to who do his true loyalty lie? This remains to be seen, but has him playing a dangerous game.

Enemies:
You are not an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D and not make enemies somehwere. There are many people through the globe that wish Ward dead.

It's Not Black and White:
Grant is a man who walks his own line. He is not exacrtly good, but he is not exactly evil either. He is somehwere in the middle and will do many things that other agents may not consider doing if it justifies the mission. This has caused some uncomfortable post mission conversations.
