Zack McKnight was born and grew up in Seattle in Bellevue. When he became of age and awakened, he enlisted into the UCAS military where he found his street smarts aiding him in working for an arms smuggling operation. This proved fruitful and he eventually retired at an early age and lived a modest lifestyle.

After retiring one of his best friends, an orc named Chad Weller, was attacked by a gang of Night Hunters. The gangers had his friend on the ground being pummeled. One Night Hunter had a hacksaw in his hands and was positioning himself in a way to grind out Chad’s tusks. With a well placed shot, a bullet ripped through the hand of the ganger holding the hacksaw. As the blood and tool dropped to the ground the Night Hunters fled. Zack was disgusted by what he saw that night. He made it a personal mission to destroy the Night Hunters and other violent racist groups.

While his retirement kept a roof over his head, taking the fight to them would require more resources, firepower, contacts, and skills. He knew a quick way to earn what was needed and called up his old military buddy Parn Williams who could line up jobs in the shadows. It looks like his old fake smuggling SIN would come in handy once again...
