My character's parents grew up in Vice City. His father worked for VS Metro Homicide for around a decade before he met my character's mother. She was a higher up in the VS FIB bureau. After 5 years of working his way through the ranks of the VS Homicide department, his, now wife of 3 years, gave him his big break into the FIB. They worked together in the bureau and were married for years until they were both able to retire after having two children.
Their son decided to follow in their footsteps. He was a very smart child. He breezed through VS Jr. High with no problem; straight A's from 3rd to 8th grade. In high school he started slacking, and under performing. He knew he was fully capable of doing the work and he even understood the material. He just preferred hanging out at the beach and talking to whatever new group of girls were on vacation in VS for the week. By the end of senior year, he realized his dream of becoming a decorated FIB special agent, just like his dad. He went to college, worked really hard, and finally got his first big case. It was a case out in Los Santos that involved going undercover in a low level of the LS crime network. He was instructed to contact a "Lamar Davis" on Life Invader, befriend him, and work his way into the crime network at a low level. Under the radar, this would be a very long and dangerous operation.
He worked at it for over 9 months. As he climbed the ladder of criminals, the FIB gave him access to many different resources such as police cars from the local department, to customized and personalized law enforcement vehicles such as his beloved Marked Police Buffalo.
After about 13 months of being undercover, he realized that he might be able to profit on this himself. He was ordered to document every detail of every job that he took on that involved crime, and to document the payment received by the job provider so that it could be stored for evidence and used for FIB purposes. He stopped reporting every job... He kept some of the money from his work for himself. He then used that money and the information provided by his new-found contacts to play the LCN and the BAWSAQ. The money totals soon tripled, quadrupled, and multiplied by unfathomable numbers. The total got so large that he just couldn't hide it any longer. At 15 months in the FIB found out about his activities, stripped him of his rank, and repossessed every police car he had,and they even took an old, beater truck that he was working on in the back of his garage,for some reason.
He fell on hard times. He took up alcohol. Getting drunk, using prescription meds, snorting coke. It was the only way he could deal with the shame he brought his entire family. He was lucky that his parents still had some sway in the FIB and somehow convinced him to still walk the streets and keep a percentage of his illegitimate money that he acquired.
At 17 months, he got word that his older sister that he hadn't seen for over 4 1/2 years was coming to LS to persue her dream of acting. They met, talked, and became great friends again. She convinced him to clean up his act, stop using drugs and find a group to reach out to. She told him to find a purpose. In return for this encouragement, the former FIB agent and current recovering drug addict gave her access to his bank information. He wasn't going to be able to spend all of that money anyways.
At 18 months, he finally found that group to reach out to. It was called "The Epsilon Program". While they took quite a bit of money from him to do it, they helped him clean up his act, find new freinds, and have a purpose. They gave him many vehicles to refill his garage. He was never a fan of "Baby Blue" but you learn to like the color of a car. Especially if it is blessed with the true word of Kraff himself and was personally gifted to you by Cris Formage.
Today, he just lives his life. He's clean, he's got a purpose, and he has lunch with his sister the first and third Tuesday of every month. He's just happy.
His sister's story will be featured on the next episode of "Family Tales; the reality show that actually involves reality!"
