Bio: Well the third member of the Phoenix Five has surfaced and his name is Hudson Hope and they call him Tetris well thats what he is called now……back during his days in the Federal Immortality Project they called him Overwatch; and the military tactic still used today was named after its creator Dr. Hope. This elder member of the Phoenix Five hails originally from Albany New York and would make his way west after retiring from the US Marine Corps in 2017 after being gravely injured during a conflict within the Iraq War. Dr. Hope would serve within the US Cavalry, US Army Airborne Division and eventually the US Marine Corps before his retirement; he would end up being one of the lucky ones from the 51st Razorbacks that managed to avoid the Battle of the Irish Sea in 2018 along the Welsh Coast.
Taking a good hard look at Tetris here and you would assume like many within this gang of five that he is simply a man of the people and a man that stands for law and order seeing he sits as the Chief Justice on the Phoenix Superior Court. Well thats where you would be “Dead” wrong…..Dr. Hope is a trigger happy desperado that helps enforce the laws and regulations of the Southwest Trinity, he is not above filling violators full of lead and taking lawbreakers on a long drive into the desert. This family man and man of honour as he is hailed within Phoenix, Santa Fe and Las Vegas is in reality a heartless and soulless killer that will do anything to keep up appearances and root out the problems within his fair city/state.
If his Honour can’t solve the problem within his courtroom with death sentences, life sentences and extreme fines and public humiliation……well whats an outlaw to do, well strap on the iron, round up the pose and deliver street justice or simply put a “Lynching” oh that is the other name that Dr. Hope is known by…..simply Lynch. By day he sits on the bench and by night he is out doing the dirty work for the cities beloved mayor Adolf Gunner. Reports from within the Southwest Trinity is that Dr. Hope is a beloved member of the community and one that is fair and impartial…..I smell a heap load of BS and spin, seeing his sentencing record reads more like an obituary and he is simply creating an express lane to the Gallows, Firing Squad or Electric Chair; he sends nearly 90% all convicted felons to death row and the other 10% are given extreme sentences or public humiliation and hefty fines.
This is how the Southwest Trinity keeps their cities appearing peaceful, safe and clean; they simply execute or lock up those that cause issues……and Santa Fe is the worst of the offenders even though their execution rate is under 15%, how you ask? Well Mayor Caprio sends all the really violent offenders to be tried within either Phoenix or Las Vegas who’s mayors don’t frown on a higher rate of capital crimes though only Phoenix is equipped with a state of the art prison system and multiple forms of execution……..to be selected by the Chief Justice on the night before the condemns execution, still think Dr Hope is a nice man.
Now onto the other issue with this sitting judge, remember he is part of the Phoenix Five a branch of the Outlaws Five, this means that once a criminal is brought before him and faces the cities death chamber…….well they are given a chance to turns states evidence for a supposed lighter sentence, in reality it’s solitary and a quicker execution date and spared “Old Sparky”. If the defendant spills his guts within Judge Hope’s chambers he has just killed any and all co-conspirators, this is where the Phoenix Five jump into action and remove the problems thus removing any witnesses of their illegal activity. Rumours within the underworld of Phoenix report that the old gangsters edict of “Snitches Get Stitches” holds very true with both the Outlaws and Phoenix Five…..thus the reason an deal maker finds their neck in a noose or a target placed over their heart. Also this edict is also why they remove other problems, it is rumoured that the others are killed and not arrested simply to send a very brutal message “This is Our City, All Others Beware!”
The one thing about the Phoenix Five is that they hate competition and seeing they rule the city….All must play by their rules, this the Five rule the underworld and the black market within Phoenix and if anyone dares to break the law they must first pay their fair share to both the Outlaws and Phoenix Five……the bosses Jamie Surrey and Union Kennith must be given their cut or its well, you understand I hope. Now this is also why the Phoenix Court system is busy and Chief Justice Hudson Hope can keep his job and appear to be strict but fair, he is simply looking out for the people of Phoenix, when in reality he is removing those stupid enough to try to stiff the true criminals of the city. Oh don’t forget if a crime committed by a non member of either gang gets bad publicity, angers the people, or simply goes bad quickly…….well they will round up the law breakers, choose one to face the public through trial and the rest get gunned down like the dogs they are.
I have reports of Judge Hope meeting with defendants and taking them for a long drive into the desert where they are never seen again……others reports of the “Pose” being gathered to burn a family out of their home that they refused to vacate after being evicted. Yes my readers this gang will surround a home and than set it ablaze with the people still inside if they refuse to cooperate with their legally sanctioned authority. Now I have as well heard that if a rival gang or criminal holds up within a building and they are on the radar of the Five well two things happen those innocent pack up quick and vacate before the bullets start flying, and normally someone drops a anonymous tip to the Phoenix Sheriffs Office……and low and behold within minutes the Phoenix Five and their posse are surrounding the building and good old Overwatch is laying cover for his posse as they either turn the adobe walls into Swiss Cheese via heavy machine-gun fire or setting the place ablaze……either way the intended outcome is the same “death to the guilty ones”
Now I understand many will simply say that I am reporting false news and spreading a negative narrative about Dr. Hope, he can’t be as bad as I say. You are reporting on rumours and not facts, well sadly within the hallowed walls of Phoenix thats all I get, the Southwest Trinity is very cautious about what negative news gets out and those within the city are strapped with a very severe gag order……If your a local, well they simply love Phoenix as they have a Universal Basic Income, Health Care For All, Food Allocation Programs and Free College not to mention low rent and free solar energy for all……of course why would they say negative things about the city, they risk expulsion and having their words covered up by the great Mr. Phoenix. Those that find themselves targeted by the Phoenix Five well life is not all that long and cheery as it will simply end in death and public shame for all those involved. Publicly shamed and painted a criminal through the media, dragged through the city in chains and given a VERY public trial to further discredit them.
Tourists seem to never see the dark side of the Southwest Trinity and unless they are within the city for nefarious purposes, they ride out their visa’s and may never see the evils of the Phoenix Five. Though they will surly now about the ongoing criminal trial and the good that the Justice Department is doing in keeping the peace. Those that go to Phoenix for nefarious reasons well they may enter the city, pay the toll to the cities corrupt and than…..find themselves on the wrong end of revolver, or digging their own grave, basically “You may enter, but you will never leave”
Now I can report that Dr. Hope does have a good side like many within politics do. This man does stand for civil rights for the people, he fights for income equality, and for racial equality unless your an elf…than your already dead. He fights for freedom of religion unless it’s the Neon Church, he actively fights to keep them out of Phoenix and has upheld legislation that bans and outlaws the Digital Church from within Phoenix and sits on a council that works to actively rout them out of the Southwest Trinity and has made being a member of this religious origination a capital crime. Though if you belong to a real Church, Temple, Synagogue, Mosque you are fine, follow the Neon Church and well you are the lowest form of life and worthy of being electrocuted to death…..for a practising Jew to persecute and prosecute people over religion is a bit hypocritical I must say.
This man is a true hypocrisy on one side he is fighting for equal rights and to promote a Democratic Socialist Government yet on the other hand he is directly working to undermine the freedom of those within Phoenix through his criminal actions within the Phoenix Five, he claims to be for law and order yet he is works to undermine that same law and order on a daily basis and he ships criminals off to be executed and yet his hands aren’t free of blood either. So as much as I try to find redeeming qualities of this runner I can’t seem to find any that don’t conflict and for ever good deed there are a hundred bad deeds within his resume.
I guess this line of thinking comes from his nearly immortal status and being well over two hundred years old and part of an elite class of Americans. He didn’t start off this way though and from what we are allowed to know about Dr. Hope and what we can uncover from his publicly released military records……thank you Senator Maximilian Yates for that, is that he was born on July 4th 1776 within Albany New York and would now officially usurp Wilhuff and Dover Palpatine as the eldest of the Federal Immortality Project of 1850. Dr. Hope would volunteer for the injection at the ripe old age of 74 and yes some did live that old or older back than…..rare but it happened, he would already have a storied career within the US Military by the time of his injection and he would serve on the New York Volunteer Cavalry Unit when he put the uniform on at the age of 13 and well he would serve within the same unit till it would become the 1st New York Cavalry Unit through the Civil War till it mustered out in 1865.
He would never become as famous as the Pale Rider nor the Invincible One, though he would still make a name for himself during the War of 1812 and Civil War. Dr. Hope would graduate from West Point Academy in 1810 and quickly rise through the ranks as one of the most successful officers during the westward expansion; though for this New Yorker it wouldn’t be his brutality that would make him famous, but his compassion and willingness to overlook direct orders and well ignore the “Red Man Threat”. He like the Pale Rider, Pickles, and Captain where more than willing to work with the Native Americans and thus allow for peace between the settlers and the tribes……for a simple man from New York this seemed to be very liberal and a very risky move seeing the rest of the US Military was very “Shoot First”
His records indicate that he even warned General Custer to withdraw from the peaceful gathering at the Battle Of Little Big Horn …..or Custer’s Last Stand. Then General Hope stated that in his opinion if Custer lead the charge towards the Natives at that day and disrupted their sacred dance……”The Great Ghost Dance” it would end up costing the American’s greatly in the end…….he pleaded with Custer to put his racism aside and attempt to negotiate and work with the Natives, well when the two generals parted ways it would be the last time anyone ever saw General Custer and his men again and all General Hope could do was face palm and shack his head in disbelief…..you would think that Custer would accept the wisdom from a man that was about to celebrate his 100th birthday and had served in the military since 1789, well history shows that those words were not headed and come August 2018 America would feel the wrath of the Natives when they did complete the Ghost Dance a second time…….maybe peace June 25th 1876 would have altered the eventual outcome.
It seems that these old FIP where very connected to the Native people and aspired for peace over violence, equality over bigotry and abhorred racism of any kind…..well that’s till the Elves emerged on the scene. Dr. Hope is fluent in multiple tribal languages and would become one of the US Military’s top translators and academics of Native History and Traditions; even being called The One who flies with Owl, or simply blessed by Owl and would tattoo the raven onto his back as well his tribal name “Wise Owl” within the language of the Cherokee. It is said that during the Trail of Tears, General Hope would attack the military march in attempts to frighten the Americans and allow for the natives to free themselves…….well we all know that it didn’t work and it seemed Tetris here would begin his life of crime far earlier than we originally thought, I wonder how many US Solders he murdered during his raids?
Well whatever the total was it was enough to keep him in the good graces of the Cherokee as he aided in the escape and rescue of many members of the tribe and lead them to a safe location……I ask again seeing we know this, why haven’t they arrested and hanged General Hope yet for murder and treason? When he wasn’t fighting on behalf of the US Military he was leading outlaw gangs through the Old West to terrorise the European and free the Native from the oppression, he would be welcomed by the tribe and eventually marry one of the chiefs daughters and fully begin his double life……He would also help escaped slaves cross the plains and make their way to California, this man reports he gunned down over seventy Slave Hunters to an early grave and would raid Slave Patrols camps with his Cherokee brothers and well give them a fate worse than death……..it would involve honey, milk and being buried up to their neck in the ground; Use your imagination and I will leave it at that. They would also torch the camps, scalp the men, string them up, gun them down or drag them feet first by the back of their horses……yup General Hope was a good man, nope he was a murderer and forgotten by history and ignored by the same people he butchered.
I guess if you are a legendary General and your sharp mind and quick wit can be all thats needed to change the outcome of a battle, than you are overlooked…..or it’s simply that he sided with a class of people that would be ignored and forgotten allowing him to be the harbinger of death and swoop in silently and bring forth the end like his totem spirit states. Forgive me if I am not sympathetic to his pleas and complaints about mistreatment during the 1900’s and early 2000’s seeing he carved for himself a bloody legacy during the 1800’s and hell even during the late 1700’s. So honestly everything he was put through is simply karma coming back to bite him in the ass!!
Like many within the FIP he would be stripped of his commission come 1900 and thrust back into obscurity, well for the man that would create the Overwatch tactic of laying cover for another squad advancing….this would allow the Wise Owl to slip into the shadows ad continue his war against the US Government and become someone that deserves everything that would happen to him, hell all the FIP deserved what happened to them…..they signed up, they fought for their country, and they should have died for their country; now they whine about mistreatment, abuse, and neglect…….they are simply privileged old white men that have outlived their usefulness and now try to cling onto whatever they can; get over yourselves, your time is past and now it’s the age of the young and we don’t give a damn about your endless wars, your politics and your bloody ways. We want you FIP to stand trial for the crimes you committed, we want you FIP to lay down your weapons and end this Revolution and we want the FIP to retire and allow for non dementia ridden minds to step up and take the reigns of leadership.
Sorry about that rant, it’s people like Tetris here that drive me crazy, they have been given a chance that many would dream for and yet they toss it back in everyone’s face and become rebels, criminals and mercenaries. They undermine every agency they work within and simply put this bastard is just the third to be exposed of the Phoenix Five but that doesn’t mean he is not connected within the rebel underground and working alongside the likes of the Horsemen, Presidents Men, Storm Riders and Jamestowns……yes this piece of trash is a Storm Rider and fought to bring down Denver, he fought alongside the Texas Rebels in 2019 with the Cherokee Outcasts and he works within the Jamestown Family as one of their Handlers; to think what he must have had to do to become one of their top agents.
Well……………………………………………………………………….BLACK DEATH activated>>>>>>>>>>>>>.
