Bio: Well first off I begin this article by saying please don’t confuse Drownyard with the Deaths Hand fence Scrooge for they may share some physical resemblance but thats where the similarities end; Drownyard is far meaner and far worse than Scrooge can and would ever be, this is man that even the Deaths Hand doesn’t want in their ranks and for good damn reason. Drownyard is part of the Cannon dynasty and where exactly he fits into the linage is unknown just that he is part part of one the most terrifying dynasties to operate within the shadows; the shadows are filled with family legacies and dynasties some more terrifying than others, the Yates, Rodgers, Meisner, O’Bannon, Krieghoff and Jamestown to just name a few of the families that keep crime within the family and it’s expected that the strongest of these families will walk away from the boring and normal life and follow suit into the shadows and thus perpetuating the cycle of violence that runs within their blood.
The Cannon family is one family that’s members can be found throughout the shadows and even within terrorist cells like the Deaths Hand and Brotherhood of Mercenaries; though mostly the Cannon’s can be found within the Devils Rejects as the founding fathers of that team and within the leadership of that band of misfits and psychos that terrorise the streets on a nightly basis. This family is also known for being unpredictable, and crazy father and son waged war on each other, bringing the city to a grinding halt during the Chemist and Hero war of 2068′ and the others well crazy is to nice and simple a term for them; this family is known for it’s toxicology and virology speciality as well as hosting one of the worlds foremost snipers Tracer that works within the Deaths Hand. This family might not seem to be as dangerous as the Yates or as Powerful as the Jamestowns but that doesn’t mean they are not to be feared and for damned good reason. The Cannon family can in a single night bring the world to it’s knees and hold us all hostage at the hands of their madness, it seems that their is one reason this family of sociopaths haven’t just unleashed their diabolical world altering machine upon all of us is that they enjoy the cat and mouse game that comes from knowing they can and yet never pushing the button.
Now this new Cannon known as Drownyard has emerged from the shadows and don’t let his smile fool you, for he is a Cannon and he is beyond crazy and he knows it. This man brings a new level of violence to the shadows and just speaking about Drownyard has sent many within the law enforcement field into maddening fits, he is an unstoppable force that knows that he is above the law; he knows that he is the judge, jury and executioner and hides behind the legality of his bounty hunter badge and the confusion that General Oliver has caused by intertwining the guild and the mercenaries making it impossible to decipher and untangle the tangled web he weaved over the years. Now this has allowed Drownyard to walk as the spirit of vengeance invoking his special brand of justice to any and all that he deems guilty; this bounty hunter doesn’t even care for the money, he hunts for the sheer enjoyment of the hunt and eventually the kill. Lets just say Drownyard is not a man of mystery on how he brings down his victims, he drowns them; though not always sinking them to the bottom of the waters of the world, no he also uses other methods to bring upon a drowning death and with his doctorate in biochemistry as well as his medical degree; he creates many a specialised toxin or virus that brings forth the dry drowning within his victims and leaving many investigators baffled as their is zero evidence left behind.
Drownyard works for free for the guild and has a very impressive success rate, though he as well freelances as a killer for higher and his success rate their is even more impressive. It is said that Drownyard has killed thousands within his career though only a few dozen bodies have ever been found and those are the ones that died the terrifying death of the dry drowning. Bodies have been found washed up on the shores or dredged up from lake beds but it is impossible to directly connect them to Drownyard though local authorities assume that it is the work of this mastermind. This man is just like the founding father William Gunn aka The Digger in that his targets go missing and stay missing, Drownyard only allows the victims he wishes to be found to be found and whats worse is that he knows that we know it was him and can’t connect the dots. The Police refuse to investigate Drownyard and the Federal Government has ignored this man out of fear for decades if not longer, his work within England and the Untied Kingdom in legendary and not in a good way as the Scottish Lochs have been swallowing his victims for years and English Channel has become the home to many of this mans victims throughout the years. Drownyard has worked all over the world and has left a trail of tears in his wake and everyone is to afraid to stop this man; this has allowed him to grow in strength and power as he enforces his justice on anyone and everyone that doesn’t see eye to eye with him or his handler.
Who his handler is well that is another mystery as no one knows or they do and they aren’t speaking, the man known as Drownyard just travels the globe with zero fear and has even been seen entering many police departments just to taunt the police that he is within the city limits; leaving them with the sicking feeling that missing persons reports will begin to increase. As to his physical capabilities this is an unknown factor, it always seems that anyone who witnesses Drownyard in action gets a sudden case of amnesia and reports nothing about this man. All we know is what we have been able to recover from video surveillance and even that was grainy and hard to get a true visual, the pictures we have of Drownyard come from his old British Intelligence records and we can assume that they are out of date as we can also assume that his statistics and training reports are well out of date seeing that they were dated in the 1990’s and it’s now 2074 and he is still in action never retiring and never slowing down.
This Cannon is one that truly brings this family to the top of the list of the most dangerous and deadly, if it wasn’t bad enough they have some sort of doomsday machine, they have Drownyard in their ranks and this man is a mystery when it comes to his abilities and his knowledge, he is mythic being of epic proportions that works for free and follows his own twisted code of justice. He hasn’t joined the Rejects like the other Cannon’s and even Alexander wont accept Drownyard in his agency saying that he is to violent and unpredictable, this man is a true sociopath and is as cold as ice; he is heartless and will make his targets die in one of the most terrifying methods possible. He has worked for almost anyone that is willing to risk being considered a loose end, and just like the Iceman this runner makes employers regret their choices in life; though unlike Iceman a holograph doesn’t stop the Drownyard from removing his employer from the earth and sending them to watery grave.
What caused Dr. Cannon to become a beacon of true evil is unknown, and his life before he became Drownyard is unknown; besides minor documents found during the Steel Legion take over of England during the War with the Deaths Hand in 2073. Again don’t confuse Drownyard with Scrooge, as their is a clear and present difference between the two men; they may appear similar but Scrooge wants you alive so he can extort you for more money, where Drownyard doesn’t care and only death brings this man pleasure anymore. We the people of the UCAS have been left to suffer under the fear of this man and we have been left to fear meeting our watery graves at the hands of Drownyard.
If anyone has any viable reports on this mans capabilities, whereabouts and true nature please contact your local UCAS Federal Office; he is to be considered armed and dangerous and off limits to even the most skilled of bounty hunters, this man is a card carrying member of the Guild. He is known to have powerful connections, contacts, allies and friends and not to mention family that are off their rocker so again I urge caution when dealing with Drownyard and leave him to the government and the professionals; he has been in operation for decades if not longer, trained initially by the British Intelligence, Royal Guard and the Mossad and it’s assumed that he has even worked for the Sentinels so again this is all we know about the man known as Drownyard so use caution and just observe and report this monsters whereabouts to the proper authorities.
