Bio: Seems like the legacies of hate and destruction continue throughout the world of the runners and the terrorist agencies, as yet another connection has been discovered by the researchers of the deep matrix. These brave researchers risk life and limb to gather the intelligence to put the pieces of the puzzle that is the world of the rebels together. This man known in the world of the shadows as Rebound is yet another deadly piece of this puzzle, he Is the brother of the dreaded Deaths Hand rigger Smoky and another direct link between the families of the Yate’s, O’Bannon’s and Wienstocks not to mention the remainder of the Brothers Grimm. Rebound has been in operation for quite some time and has been hunting those he considers to be the enemies of the state or should I say rebellion for ages and has a very long lineage and have sired many a child during his travels though out the known world.
Rebound is Smoky’s younger brother but not by much and the two where as thick as thieves growing up, to say that the Livingston brothers were problem children would be an understatement and from the archived records it seems these two brothers have had quite the run in with the law and have spent much of their youth with in correction facilities for their rebellious and criminal activities. We already know that the dates and time stamps on these records have been altered thanks to the many deckers that work directly alongside the Deaths Hand and other Rebel agencies, but the records are still in existence to verify that Rebound is a Livingston and directly related to Smoky; knowing the youths criminal and rebellious history it is not hard to believe that they would get tied up with rebellion and terrorist regimes that they currently work for and have escalated their criminal behavior from petty crime to that of mass genocide and world domination.
Both Saul and Ebenezer had a younger sister her name was Allison and the two big brothers where very protective of their baby sister and when Allison would fall victim to the Freedom Task Force in the late 2020’s the exact date is unclear. The Brothers would vow to seek revenge and bring justice to their baby sister, even though by that point she was a full grown, married women and mother. Allison had fallen for the young and charismatic Drake Weinstock now known as Asylum. Their other sister would marry the world renowned news anchor Alfred O’Bannon, and all would seem to be going well for the Livingston’s and their extended family. That was until the days of the Great Tragedy of 2018 and the events that would follow, to place the blame fully on the Natives for the these events is not completely fair as the United States government would have a hand in the events that would unfold during those days. The stage was set for a change and those in power would use this time as their swansong to bring the United States from a Democratic Republic to a Toleration Dictatorship under the guise of a New Order and so would bring forth the UCAS (United Canadian American States) a government controlled by the corrupt and with corporations fully enthroned within the power structure it would only be a matter of time before something would erupt.
The UCAS has allowed the Natives to be the victims and take the fall for their vain attempt to enslave the people seeing that their attempt at the turn of the century on September 11th 2001 would fail and only bring the country closer and deepen the people’s patriotism. They would need an even greater tragedy to engage their plan of enslavement and dystopia; were only the 1% would profit and those that where the average working class family would suffer under the new regime, looking to the new government for protection, financial assistance and leadership. They would freely hand over their liberties and freedoms to the New Order in exchange for protection from the supposed new threat of the Natives and the rise of the unknown magical world that had just returned to the world for the sixth time. Though this would be the age that many killers would emerge and rise up in resistance to the events that where unfolding, each one holding the Natives to blame for their tragedies with some yet seeing the full picture and understanding the new Government was not fully innocent during this bloody age.
As war would break out across the landscape, towns ravaged and millions of innocent lives lost in a blink of an eye as the magic of the natives would ravage the landscape in the summer of 2018 and the government would use the ensuing chaos to firmly plant the flag of the new government by attempting to remove any and all that were deemed a threat to the New Order of the UCAS; Instead of quickly rising to action and striking back at the natives for their murderous assault they would bow down and accept surrender, an action that goes against the normal actions of the American Way it was clear to some that this new threat ran deeper than believed and so would begin the age of rebellion with war officially being declared many decades later on January 1st 2074. Though prior to that the nation would be brutalized and raped by warfare for almost six decades, at the hands of the rebels and those that believed that they were wronged by both the Natives and their own Government. With the signing of the Treaty of Denver in 2019 and the south once again seceding from the union in 2020 after refusing to sign the treaty and failing to comply with the handing over of parts of their land to both the Natives and Mexico it would bring forth a second bloody Civil War lead by at the time General Edward Davis and for the next five years the Civil War would wage on and brother would kill brother once again as the Southern States again fought for their survival and their right to exist without suffering under the New Order and the Treaty of Denver. What does this history lesson have to do with the Livingston’s and their connection to the war, the death of Allison and the wife of Alfred O’Bannon, well I am getting to there, one must first understand that during this age the nation was in full conflict and nothing was clear; even the newly established UCAS was under pressure from not only the Southern Confederates but from within by an order known as the Freedom Patriots, Brotherhood of Mercenaries and the Tribal Protectors known as the Deaths Hand (Yes at one time the Deaths Hand was not a murderous terrorist cell bent on conquest, they originally formed as an order to defend the people from the ravages of the Natives and take in the refugees from the ongoing Civil War’s). It would be during this time that Alfred O’Bannon would be considered a threat to the New Order and hence he would become the target of the Government for assassination, seeing that he had prior intelligence of the rise of the New Order or also known as the False Flag. This would as well put his family in jeopardy and bring the war directly to their doorsteps, as government assassins would attempt to bring Alfred to his early demise; even going as far as murdering his disabled and autistic son and wife in an attempt to draw the defenseless journalist out.
Well remember how I stated that the Livingston’s had two sisters one married Alfred O’Bannon and the other would marry Drake Weinstock, well the government would in an further attempt to lure out Alfred would murder Allison and her children thus thrusting the O’Bannon, Livingston and Weinstock families into a fit of rage and vengeance. This failed attempt to clean house at the hands of the UCAS would not go unnoticed and would never be forgotten by those directly affected. The UCAS would unknowingly directly involve individuals into the fight that weren’t harmless journalists and that’s to poor record keeping, illegal immigration and just the ravages of war the intelligence on the Weinstock family and their direct connection with General Ichabod Oliver and the Guild of Bounty Hunters would come back to bite them in the rear end; also the O’Bannon family was newly immigrated from Ireland and only Alfred and his brother Douglas would be known, and as we have recently learned the UCAS under the authority of Director Jarred Mitchell would have supposedly taken care of Douglas who was a special forces commander and a true threat if he wasn’t dealt with swiftly. Well they failed on that account and in the process created a new monster for the world to deal with known as Winter Rat; they didn’t know about Alfred’s uncle known as the Leprechaun a senior Knight within the Steel Legion’s Order of the Cross and his Daughter a trained assassin for the IRA (Irish Republic Army) by the name of the Loreley and wife to the public relations officer of the Steel Legion and Wolf Pack member Henry Tudor aka the Piper.
They would also fail to connect the dots with the Weinstocks and their connection to the Brothers Grimm through marriage to the sister of Everest; this failed intelligence gathering of the newly established government could be related to the ongoing chaos, the crashing of the World Wide Web or just plain incompetence. Though whatever it was would be the lynchpin in the failing to bring down the simple journalist and cost the government millions as they tried to cover their blunder up through a brilliant propaganda campaign; though the damage had already been done and it would just add fuel to the fire of the rebels of the Patriots and Brotherhood when they were shown the graphic images of young Alfred Jr’s demise and the butchering of the rest of the family. Not like these men and women needed further encouragement to fight against the enemy of the New Order, though it would surely become something that they would not quickly forget. Alfred was already friends with some very powerful people and had friends deep within the underworld thanks to his journalistic contacts so it was not hard for Alfred O’Bannon now known as Anchor to slip into the shadows and join up with the Deaths Hand and Freedom Patriots; especially seeing that his Brother-In-Law Smoky had already done the same to escape the Death Squads from the Freedom Task Force coming for him; his brother Rebound on the other hand would instead join forces with General Oliver and begin the hunting of those that hunted them, and with fire burning in his heart and vengeance scorching his soul Rebound would slip into the shadows and use his natural talents inherited from his Jamestown blood and the magic that coursed through him to become the hunter of the hunters and make it his personal mission to make certain the UCAS and Natives paid their hefty blood price for every member of his family that they killed and especially for his innocent nephew and his baby sister, who would become innocent casualties of a bloody age.
The problem is that Rebound and his family have long since forgone the ideology that there are actually innocents left in this world and anyone that is not part of the rebellion is a potential combatant and threat to the cause. If Rebound wasn’t already a serious threat to those he deems the enemy of the state and I mean the enemy of the rebellion, seeing he was already highly trained in the arts of combat and martial prowess at an early age, he is the youngest in recorded history to receive his black belt in the deadly art kick boxing and has since become nine striped black belt in that art a well a mastery of many others and the creation of his own special brand of martial arts; with only the Gargoyle being his superior. Rebound has dedicated his life to getting even and settling the score with those that wronged him, he has travelled the world fighting alongside anyone that follows his ideology and learning from the masters of martial combat as well as becoming a walking weapon himself with even giving Panama pause in engaging Rebound. He has served alongside the Ghost Division and works directly within the guild; he has worked alongside Checkmate and fought within the many battles of Africa on his quest for revenge and redemption. Anywhere the UCAS and their agents can be found, you can find rebound hot on their trail hunting down those that serve the New Order and wading through a river of blood in the process; he has forgone any compassion and has only war coursing through his veins and his blackened heart.
Rebound has spent his entire lifetime dedicated to seeking revenge and he doesn’t care if he ends up in a grave as long as those responsible for Allison’s death end up their first. He has sacrificed part of his soul to help in his fight and has worked personally with Set and the Rabbi in the destruction of their foes, seeing that their foes are his foes by proxy, and he has been handsomely rewarded for his service to Set in the process. This man or should I say beast is nothing like his brother Smoky any longer, the two brothers fight for the same cause but at least Smoky can be reasoned with; Rebound on the other hand can’t be reasoned with and only seeks to fulfil his blood price that he swore the day Allison was murdered and seeing that he only knows that the UCAS is to blame for her passing he has yet to uncover the identity of the true assassin; that means all who swear allegiance to the UCAS are potential victims for this man and all I can hope is that they receive a swift death and aren’t forced to suffer a long and painful death at the hands of Rebound. This man has been trained by the best in the game and has developed his own brand of martial prowess that he deploys with ease, he has an open invitation into the Presidents Men if he so desires and as well has worked alongside the Deaths Hand a number of times. Currently he serves as the bodyguard to the Prime Minister of Israel when he is not off destroying some poor government employees life or making some solider of the UCAS wish they never signed on the dotted line.
This man has multiple children throughout the UCAS and Israel, he has never settled down to marry any one women and this might just be do to his violent lifestyle and his near suicidal mission of vengeance; or he just doesn’t want to involve his kin in his personal battles and thus bring harm to them directly. No one should have the war come to them and be forced to fight on a side just cause their father has chosen a lifestyle of warfare; he might not be within their lives directly but don’t call him a deadbeat father for our records show he does make certain his children are well cared for and have surrogate fathers in place; yet another trend that seems to common within the rebellion and rebel families especially within the Brothers Grimm and a few other family lines within the shadows.
This man is very dangerous and very deadly, he is one man that only has one man that stands superior in martial prowess and he is the one man the Rabbi considers powerful enough and ruthless enough to be his personal guard from the many enemies he has accumulated throughout history. This is one man that the Ghost Division is proud to call a brother in arms and one man that Set has handsomely rewarded for his many years of dedicated service to the cause. Rebound is as lethal as they come and has only a few equals, he is filled with anger and frustration against those that wronged them; he has his personal mission and he as well has his alliance with the dangerous Watchman and the Guild of Bounty Hunters as he does the dirty work for the guild and yet stands tall alongside his brother Smoky when needed; this is man that will not rest till the his heart beats it’s last beat or the last drop of his enemies blood is spilled. Rebound is to be feared and respected, Rebound is not to be underestimated and to be considered an enemy of Rebound only means one thing a swift trip to the grave.
