Barrington Hewes-Bradford is a freelance agent.
Imagine you were incredibly rich, one of the wealthiest men in the world. Imagine you were dashingly handsome, suave, and smooth. Imagine you were in the best of physical shape, in love with adventure, and had a great desire for righting wrongs and protecting the little guy.
If you can imagine all that, you'd find yourself being Barrington Hewes-Bradford, Chairman of the Board of HB Enterprises, HB Shipping, Zeus Airlines, and Interco Oil, and head of the Peacemaker Foundation.
And having imagined all that, you would now know just about all there was to know about the hero of this series and the sort of activities he would like become involved with.
At 32 years of age, "Barry", as he is known to his friends, is so wealthy that he does not have to worry about money but he does worry about his empire and strives to keep it safe and strong. Day-to-day operations are usually handled by his chief-of-staff, a man named Trask, but Hewes-Bradford would never been content to just sit back and do nothing. He had inherited a nice fortune from his father but it was nothing compared to what he would make it. A shrewd and savvy financier, Hewes-Bradford bought companies when they were down and built them up again, extending his influence in all manner of enterprise.
But even more than the love of the financial game and being a captain of industry, Hewes-Bradford has a passion for world peace. He truly believes that with a concerted effort, peace might be obtainable in his lifetime. To that end, he created his Foundation.
The Peacemaker Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to making the world a better place. To do so, it has on staff an elite group of trouble shooters ready to go into action with its leader. It also has one of the best intelligence collection services around, the envy of most of the countries of the world. Finally, it has a leader and adventurer with one of the longest names in all the world of spy-fi.
