Adam Breck is an agent for a ultra-secret Intelligence agency.
The agency Breck works for is so secret that only a dozen people in the world know of its existance, outside of those who work for it. The exact mission of the group is not specified but it would appear they handle cases that the other agencies can't. And they handle them with extreme prejudice when called for. It is run by a man named Clock, a humorless man who lives only for his job and expects his people to follow suit. Clock's people are highly disciplined and are trained endlessly that the first Rule in the business is "never love, never feel, never let emotion affect efficiency, purpose, dedication." In working for such a man Breck has learned to create a personal wall around his feelings and deal only with the task given him but at times there is a break in the wall and he has to fight to get it back.
Breck has been working for Clock for a good number of years as the series starts. He has had move than a thousand hours of deadly training during that period and is at the top of his game. With such determination, there is no doubt why Breck is Clock's number one agent in the small bureau. The biggest flaw Breck is said to have is his unwavering loyalty for those with whom he works.
He is listed as just under six feet, thin, and nondescript enough to go unnoticed in most crowds, a useful attribute for a spy. His face is described as "rough hewn, like the face of an old Roman coin, virile ugly - attractive". Despite being thin, he is in excellent shape like that of a professional athlete along the order of a tennis player.
