A mercenary with a chequered past, Lance Hunter has been a soldier, an officer, an Agent of SHIELD and more recently a mercenary. Though most tend to only know about the soldier, officer and mercenary parts by design. Despite living by a somewhat shady profession Lance Hunter has something of a rep of someone who will turn down a job if it's too dirty, which has put him on hard times.
1986 - Born to a police officer and his wife in Maidstone, Kent.
2004 - Joined the British Army and was assigned to the King's Regiment (Liverpool).
2006 - Passed selection for the British Parachute Regiment and deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.
2008 - Successfully took the lead of a critical mission in Basra, Iraq after his lieutenant was badly injured. Selected for officer training at Sandhurst.
2010 - Graduated and after passing selection for the SAS, was instead assigned to the international counter-terror force codenamed STRIKE.
2011 - Distinguished himself on a mission to Sierra Leone, and in covert operation codenamed Panther's Claw while under STRIKE.
2012 - Encounters Bobbi Morse and Alphonso Mackenzie on a joint operation between SHIELD and STRIKE. The operation reveals corruption in STRIKE and the task force is folded into SHIELD. Distancing himself from his own comrades Hunter joins SHIELD's operations track receiving training at the SHIELD Operations Academy.
2013 - Hunter graduates with high marks but with a folder full of discipline issues. Begins active service in SHIELD, favouring independent deep cover assignments as well as working primarily with Bobbi Morse, Alphonso Mackenzie and Isabelle Hartley.
2017 - After achieving the rank of Field Agent, Hunter resigns from SHIELD for 'personal reasons' and begins working as a military contractor around the world. Occasionally taking work for SHIELD.
2020 - Kidnapped by Toshiro Mori and Daniel Whitehall in an effort to coerce Bobbi Morse into cooperating with them. After his escape, he renews his association with SHIELD.
With Lance Hunter his friends come first. Need someone to blow off some steam with after work? He's there. Need to move house? There (but likely complaining). Need someone to come on some near suicidal mission of vital personal importance? There. For Lance, people trump organizations, he couldn't give a crap about SHIELD and it's history, but he cares about the agents by his side, and he would one hundred percent take a bullet for each of them.
For those he's truly close too, it's a whole other level and Hunter's loyalty doesn't stop at death, he'll be the sort to make sure your people get looked after and if someone took you out, he'll gladly be the one to cross them off personally.
While Hunter likes to play the jaded mercenary, he has lines he won't cross, he won't betray a friend, hurt innocents, or break the really nasty laws for a contract. In the shady world he lives in that has cost him money, friendships and blood, but he still holds tight to those principles despite it all.
Sarcasm is the lowest form of humour, but Hunter has never pretended to be anything other than low brow. He happily 'takes the piss' out of his superiors, colleagues and especially his enemies. Always having a witty line or two to say when faced with any situation.
Smarter Than He Looks:
A talker and and charmer, it's very easy to see Hunter as a big mouth with nothing attached, but in reality he is a highly trained soldier and spy that just happens to be annoyingly talkative at times. Whether that's really who Hunter is or if he's just learned to affect that trait to put people off-guard is a matter of some speculation.
Hunter's best weapon is his mouth. Maybe it's the accent, maybe it's how he can push a story until you start to believe it, but whatever it is, Hunter has a way with words and getting people to believe him. Furthermore these same skills make him fun at parties as opposed to some of his more taciturn colleagues.
From the combination of his military and SHIELD training, Hunter is an effective fighter, hand to hand, with blades, and with firearms. He's rated for most commonly found firearms and some more exotic ones, he's a capable sniper, and a crack shot with a pistol. Hand to hand he's able to take on multiple well-trained opponents and come out on top, but can struggle when put against those that specialize in that sort of fighting. Which is usually when he goes for a gun.
A veteran of the British Army, Lance was a infantryman, a paratrooper, a member of the SAS and an officer. He's got a broad knowledge of the British military and their allies and has a working knowledge of the weapons and vehicles of war as well as additional skills like parachuting, knives and hand to hand combat, all of it he's built on through his life as a mercenary and during his time at SHIELD.
Trained at the Operations Academy, Lance Hunter is skilled in everything an agent of SHIELD needs to know to be on the front lines be that kicking down doors, breaking codes, cultivating contacts, or working undercover. Specializing in the tactical and undercover areas of an Operations agent, Lance is an expert with weapons, piloting, forging documents, languages, and creating and sticking to a cover story.
From his time as the son of a cop, a shall we say reckless youth, and time as a mercenary, Lance knows how to blend in and make friends on the seedy side of life. Along with those skills comes with others like lockpicking, smuggling and general theft. All of which help when you're a spy.
Hunter has a way with people and can get them to open up just by talking to them. It's handy as a spy and with the ladies, as well as when a friend needs to vent a little bit. More than that he's also mastered several languages and accents (mostly American) that he can turn on and off at will to let him blend in or make someone feel more at home around him.
Hunter has friends in high and low places. Members of the British military and the intelligence services who owe him favours, SHIELD contacts, fellow mercenaries such as Rusty and some less savoury contacts like HYDRA goon and arms dealer 'Spud'. Indeed if he can be believed he even bailed Prince Harry out of a jam one time before his Highness was a married man.
In all Lance usually 'knows a guy' with a bit of information or who can provide some help, though the quality of that help tends to vary widely.
Hunter has hidden away papers for two fully supported cover IDs, as well as various fake driver's licenses, military ID cards, and other documents for several dozen flimsier ones. All of which can be helpful in an emergency.
A lot of the time Hunter's mercenary gigs don't pay all that well due to some of them not ending that well due to principles, money or women. However he has a scored a few high paying gigs over the years that have fattened his accounts. If he lives frugally he could probably live off it for a decade or more. However that is very much not his style, and so that money is likely to run out within a year or two as long his contracts remain on the lower end of the spectrum.
Hunter has made more than his share of enemies along with his many friends. A lot of them would like to see him dead either over a personal beef, or a professional one. Some of the latter include organizations like AIM, HYDRA and some smaller terrorist groups. In general, Lance has to watch his back, because today might be the day one of them catches up to him..
Attachments are dangerous for a spy or a mercenary, unfortunately Hunter has his share of them. Whether friends or lovers, they're close to his heart and he'd do almost anything for them and more than a few people know that and are willing to use it.
Hunter tends to feel rather than think and that leads to him acting on impulse. Like falling for that blonde SHIELD agent who was sent to get intel off of him, or risking all to get revenge for a fallen friend. It's a dangerous trait to have as a spy and it's one his enemies (and some of his friends) can and do use to manipulate him.
