Flaw: Mercenary

Firefly is an infamous world renown mercenary and saboteur with a wrap sheet stretching back to the 1960's. Though the current Firefly would only be responsible for the most recent activity. He's wanted around the world for questioning and several crimes by several governments. Though his secret identity isn't known. He tries to stay a step or five ahead of the law. He's had close calls and had to burn alias before. He's even been willing to work for a government if the price is right, but most the time he's wanted for his crimes or at least their questioning.


There once was a man named Firefly, a professional saboteur, ninja master, and terrorist in the 1960's. He often worked for the terrorist organization Cobra. The man was a infamous and a legend among those in the know. This is the story of man that would replace him. Nothing known concrete about either individuals. The following is most likely compiled profile for the current Firefly.

Firefly grew up in the Southern United States. He has either little or no family with no familiar ties. He was an athletic and highly intellectual individual in school. That unfortunately had a disposition for bad decisions and building explosive devices. After high school he spent time in the U.S. Military receiving special forces training and becoming a combat engineer. He was dishonorably discharged from the military and may have spent some time in Black Water Prison.

Upon release, Firefly began operating as a security consultant and mercenary for various terrorist and criminal organizations. This led to his recruitment into Cobra as a Viper. He flourished as a Viper and became a promising Cobra operative specializing in demolitions and sabotage. This led to an encounter with the Original Firefly. The Viper cut all ties with Cobra becoming an agent and protege of Firefly. It's at this point he would have been declared dead and possibly had all records of his existence erased. It is noted that the Viper worked in the shadows providing support for the Original Firefly.

The current Firefly took over approximately a year ago. Firefly sighting and work drastically dropped for a six month period before starting up again abruptly. Some of his bomb making practices and preferred materials changed. His calling card and his business model didn't. He will work with anyone willing to pay him, especially against organized governments. He makes no guarantee of his success. He only accept payment up front in a number of off shore bank accounts. He always places his bombs where they can cause the most devastation. He is hardly ever seen planting the explosives. The original Fire Fly never worked exclusively for Cobra. The new one seems to have retained the previous one's working relationship but is working to expand it to other organizations and individuals.
