Aydin Trammell is an agent with The Program.
Or was it The Service.
Both are used in blurbs describing the two collection of adventures Trammells and company have and both of those terms appear in the actual text and determining the actual truth has been elusive. Of course, having different terms for an organization is not unheard of - just ask the CIA, aka the Agency aka the Company
Exactly who or what the Program/Service is also remains a bit sketchy but it seems to be a private intelligence organization that takes young children and trains them to be spies when they get old enough. Aydin was one of those children and is one of those spies. Or at least he used to be. Now he is trying to make a better than decent living using the software development skills he learned in the Program.
That is when he is not going up against Allison, his wife, another of those children turned spies. She is also someone who has figured out how to make good money out of the work that her husband has done with coding. Unfortunately in the pages of the first recorded adventure we have of him/her, we learn that she has made that money by stealing the algorithms from him. And then gets really ticked off when it turns out he was not so trusting so the core of what she stole was garbage. Some happy couple the two of them make.
Things will get better, though, but people will keep trying to kill them.
And to eliminate Phil, Trammell's best friend and chief irritant, a fellow who laments that he and Trammell cannot seem to go two weeks without someone trying to kill them.
- In the opening paragraph of the first adventure: "Damn, it stinks. ... Never run and hide on a trash day"
- "Hanging around with dead people is never a good idea."
- Said by Allison, "I didn't seduce him, but he thinks there is candy at the end of the game."
- Said by Aydin, "Dead people do that. They find ways to annoy you for days."
- Said by Aydin, "I am too young to feel this old.~
