Eric Saveman is an agent with the ZED Group.
He was the head of a very successful marijuana smuggling ring until he had a falling out with his team members. Getting out was not easy, though, and he quickly found himself in the middle of a battle between a man determined to control the drug trade everywhere and the only group capable of stopping him.
The organization was the ZED Group, operated by an extremely rich man who chose to devote his life in the service of his country. The ZED Group is ostensibly a secret arm of the CIA but in truth it is the personal agency of a man who answers only to the President, General Victor Velasco.
Once he was completely out of the smuggling trade and working the ZED, Saveman underwent months of intense training to finally become one of less than a dozen agents for the super-secret organization. Within a very short period of time, he would become their best agent.
As the series begins, Saveman is 27 years old, stands 6'3", is in excellent physical condition, and lives with two gorgeous young women he calls M'Liz and M'Lady, identical twins who love Saveman deeply just as he feels strongly for both of them. A former college quarterback (Stanford), he exercises often and hard to keep in the top shape he can.
Saveman is in truth an independent agent in that he has the right to reject any job that he does not feel comfortable with. Loving adventure and having a thrill-seeking quirk, though, means there are few missions that would not interest him. He is very well paid for his time which, coupled with a large inheritance, means he is never without funds. Still, Saveman does not do anything for the money; he does it for the excitement.
