Zane Watson is an agent with the Delphi Group.
Some background on this agency. It is a "clandestine organization conducted investigations that the US government could not or would not associate itself with, primarily those involving bizarre events such as scientific advances, the paranormal, or any other category not suitable for transparent budgets". It was "created in the wake of the events that took place in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, the organization went from being directly under the auspices of the federal government to being privately owned and funded under the black budget of the CIA".
The "owner" and leader of the Group was Dr. Alexander Ross who was known, no surprise here, as the Oracle, the fount of wisdom located at ancient Delphi. The man had decidedly earned the leadership position since he had been a successful CIA case officer before moving up the chain of command to eventually serve a term as the Director of National Intelligence. "His no-nonsense approach, coupled with his natural affinity for clandestine work, made him the perfect leader for an organization like Delphi."
Zane Watson is considered by most to be the best operative this department had. "A former Navy SEAL, he had been honorably discharged after suffering a severe knee injury while on duty in Yemen. Disappointed at not being able to serve but determined to make the most of his life, Zane enrolled in computer science at North Carolina State University. He was able to obtain a bachelor’s degree in only two and a half years, a testament to his strong work ethic and intellect."
After his knee was repaired, he moved into a bit tamer occupation as a flight instructor at Raleigh-Durham Airport. It was there that he started getting offers from Delphi to join them and eventually decided to agree.
"Zane was single, childless, and enjoying life as a flight instructor when approached by Dr. Alexander Ross, otherwise known as the Oracle, in the mid-2000s. The Oracle was determined to make the former SEAL the senior operative of the Delphi Group. He had heard of the man’s reputation through various channels; Zane was known as a fearless soldier with a mind like a steel trap. It took a number of flights between Reagan National Airport and RDU, but the Oracle was eventually able to bring Zane on board by agreeing to let him live in Raleigh. The new operative would even be allowed to give flight lessons, as time permitted. The shrewd Oracle knew that it couldn’t hurt to have a point man who was also a trained pilot."
So, when not at home, Watson is in the field where he knows he belongs.
