Fitz is an Agent of SHIELD. One of their resident scientific geniuses, he specializes in designing equipment for field agents and dealing with inquiries around scientific phenomena that come up during the course of an investigation. He works closely with his partner, Jemma Simmons to the point that they are frequently just identified as 'FitzSimmons'.
*1995 - Leopold James Fitz is born in Glasgow, Scotland
*2005 - His father, Alister Fitz walked out on him and his mother.
*2012 - Fitz would complete his pair of doctorates and demonstrate an exceptional aptitude for engineering at the precocious age of 17. Those gifts would bring him to the attention of SHIELD, earning him an invitation to the SHIELD Academy of Science and Technology. An offer to good to pass up, Fitz joined up eager to prove himself.
*2014 - After a successful two years at the Academy, Fitz would be paired up with a gellow genius in her field, Jemma Simmons, something that he initially had some difficulty with. Used to being the proverbial smartest one in the room, he found himself challenged. But the pair would come to work extremely well together, to the point that many at the Academy would come to just call them FitzSimmons.
*2016 - Fitz graduated at the top of his class at the Academy, along with Jemma, becoming the youngest graduates of the SHIELD Academy. He would be assigned to the Triskelion to help design various equipment used by agents in the field.
*2020 - Fitz continues to serve with distinction, primarily in designing equipment for use by field agents and lending technical and scientific know-how to other agents on their assignments. With more experience comes increasing responsibility including more field assignments that take him beyond the familiar confines of the lab.
For all his reserve at times, Fitz is extremely eager to prove himself and his abilities. While he has always excelled in the lab and controlled environments he is increasingly driven to show that he can offer more then just a calm, rational perspective on problems that are removed from him. He is eager to show that he can deal with high pressure situations and that he can provide value there, out in the field, in addition to the lab.
At his core Fitz is a good person, and once someone can get past some of the barriers he errects, he is a very good friend, a surprisingly optomistic individual despite that more rational exterior. It takes a lot to get on his bad side once in good with him and there is little he would not do for his friends.
Fitz is not always comfortable in his own skin and it sometimes takes him a little while to warm up to people -- or vice versa. He has always been a little more comfortable around things, objects that he can take apart and put together and generally understand all the pieces that make them work. Science is clean and makes sense. People... not always so much. He can be a little reserved at first, but that hides a surprisingly good sense of humor and fierce loyalty to his friends.
Fitz's genius is not limited to the theoretical. HIs gifts run more towards engineering. He is a SHIELD gadgeteer, coming up with any number of useful devices for agents in the field and almost always collaborating with Jemma Simmons to create devices that utilize the best of both of their respective fields. He has put increasing focus in the past couple of years of applying those skills to field work when there is not always days, weeks, or months to come up with practical solution, but only minutes or hours.
As a SHIELD Academy Graduate he has been trained in firearms and has maintained those skills. He is an above average shot, in the marksman range. Though there is a difference between qualifying on the range and utilizing in the field as he is well aware.
Fitz is a genius. He completed a pair of PhD's before his eighteenth birthday and was one of the youngest graduates of the SHIELD Academy ever. When it comes to the hard sciences he is one of the brightest minds in SHIELD and, if everything he did wasn't classified, would surely be recognized as one of the leaders in his field. He thrives on problem solving and has yet to come across a problem that he can not crack given time.
As a SHIELD Academy Graduate Fitz has received the full suite of training in hand-to-hand combat along with self defense. He... tries hard. Compared to his fellow agents he is decidedly unimpressive and knows it is an area of improvement. Compared to the general public... well at least he has training.
Fitz has demonstrated a gift for languages and tends to pick them up fast. In particular he is fluent in Arabic and Hebrew, as well as at least basic coversational skills in a variety of Europena languages.
While Fitz does most of his work in the lab, he has collaborated with Jemma to design a lot of cutting edge equipment with Jemma, equipment that he has made good use of on those occasions when his experience has been required in the field. The ICER pistol is his weapon of choice, a non-lethal weapon while DWARFs (Drones Wirelessly Automated to Retrieve Forensics) is his most common way of pursuing his more scientifc mandate when it isn't practical for him to be directly on site.
His best friend and partner, Fitz has been working with Jemma Simmons since their 3rd year at the Academy, combining their two areas of scientific specializations to make tremendous advances on behalf of SHIELD. Their abilities compliment each other extremely well, to the extent that most simply refer to them as 'FitzSimmons'. More then a few agents have expected to find a single person, such is the level of their team work.
Fitz is a SHIELD Agent, Rank 5 with all the applies access and resources that come along with it. As one of the lead researchers he has access to cutting edge equipment and technology developed for the organization and the security clearance that goes along with it.
Ftiz's father walked out on them when he was ten and that unsurprisingly created a few issues. It is probably at the root of a lot of his social awkwardness, his tendancy to be reserved, or to try to hard at times. It also makes him a fiercely loyal friend, something that could pose problematic if he gets his wish and sees more action in the field.
Fitz is a science nerd. That comes with many of the stereotypical drawbacks. There are times that he deals better with objects then people. He can forget his audience and either get lost in details or areas that others have no interest in, or start talking over their heads in technical terms. He can be shy and reserved at times, and over eager and trying a little too hard at others.
