Bio: Lord Graham the Earl of Salisbury is yet another lost legend of the ages, lost to time and to history so much I will report is just tales told by those old enough to remember this relic of the past; though Lord Graham has resurfaced as of late and this my readers is something that nightmares are made of. Lord Graham or simply known by either Tinker or Q as he prefers within the criminal empire is a man that has a storied history and his days started long before the events of the Great Noble War of 2020 and long before the rise of the Steel Legion. Lord Graham was born in Salisbury England the exact date is lost in the ashes of time, but we can find records that put him active within the House of Lords in 1987 so he had to have been born sometime prior to 1966 this would make him well over a century old today; some say that it must be an impostor seeing as Lord Graham would have passed many decades earlier. To this I bring forth the most recent documents from the latest meeting of the House of Lords in October of 2074 and it shows that Lord Graham was in attendance and that his heirs have never inherited Salisbury Castle or the Graham Manor Home and estate nor his title hasn’t changed hands in all these years.
I can assume that the British Government had a similar Immortality Program as America did during the prior century and kept it very concealed until recent records have emerged and shown that some people are long beyond their natural life span. The other reason I believe this is seeing that Lord Graham was a member of the Royal Army and served as not only an officer within the Army but as well an officer within the Queen’s Royal Guard before joining British Intelligence MI6 and where he would rise to the noble office of Commandant and take the likes of Dr. Statler Cannon, Reginald Kingsman, Dayton England Dr. Alvin Cannon, Dr. Harvey Cannon, Dr. Waldorf Cannon, Tudor and Marvin Yates and give them direction training and turn them into the best British Intelligence Agents the world would ever see. Seeing that everyone just mentioned is very much alive I would have to assume that Lord Graham is as well still among the living, he also shares accolades with the likes of Edgar Grayson and Dr. Edwin Forester and many other old timers that are making waves in the rebellion.
The list of rebels that have been trained, influenced or worked alongside Tinker is quite impressive and also something to fear for these men had a voice with someone that had the Queen’s ear and was responsible for the safety of not only the Royal Family but the entire population of the United Kingdom and what we know about the Cannon and Yates family now should scare every reader. Lord Graham was like Lord Millburn, Lord Milton, Lord Grimm and Lord Swanson in that he refused to sign the Treaty of the Lords and unlike those before him, do to his extreme political influence and vast wealth he would not be exiled from English soil and his title never once put into question. Lord Graham would as well be on record openly refusing the bump in his birthright to Duke and be the only brick in the wall to stop other Nobles from absorbing others birthrights when they failed to put pen to parchment.
For this is one of the few good things that Lord Graham introduced into Parliament, though he would meet steep opposition from the newly adorned nobility; those men that would inherit the title after their fathers where murdered during the war or those that would be simply handed a title for their service during the war but have no land or actual claim to warrant such a privilege. This would become Lord Graham’s focus and lets just say he would do a very good job at ridding the nation of false nobles save for a few that would escape his blade or those that would knights of his court.
Long before the War of the Nobles Lord Graham was in action and serving his beloved England with pride, though he had a dark side and that would come to light during his tenure as the Commandant of MI6 seeing that he would begin to see the worst that England had to offer on a daily basis, he would make a choice that would guide him for generations to come and that would be to use the information he was uncovering to allow for himself to form a shadow operation Black Site called London Dungeon and house said unit within the halls of West Minster Abbey and eventually get the Queen to use her Royal Authority to sign off on the legal documents and officially open the doors of the London Dungeon (Not to be confused with the Real London Dungeon in the Tower of London) on March 17th 2010 and he would waste no time starting to remove domestic threats to England.
This Black Site would operate right under the nose of the British Citizens and Legal Authority for decades before being disclosed the people on February 14th 2074 though once disclosed it was only officially declared MI7 until one of the Demure would break the real news about the truth behind MI7 and it’s real purpose and history on June 18th 2074; this would put that secret order at odds with some of the best hunters and intelligence officers the world has ever seen and to date the Demure have not again reported any information on the London Dungeon, I know they are still out there reporting but I guess the fear of Tinker and his men have kept them very silent on the issue at hand.
I know I said before that this was mostly just stories about Lord Graham but his impact was great and his legacy is vast so there plenty of records of his accomplishments, though his personal actions are steeped in legend and mystery as this man was and still is a master of espionage and assassination. Some have referred to him as the Mr. Black of the UK but I have to think that Tinker is the first and Woodrow would mimic the London Dungeon with his Post Office. Yes readers I am putting my life in danger just writing about Lord Graham and his London Dungeon and their connection to the recently made public Kingsman. Yes if you thought the mysterious Kingsman where not connected to Lord Graham in some manner you are seriously delusional; the premiere assassins of the King and the infamous London Dungeon go hand in hand, Lord Graham would never have been able to do anything he has done over his lifetime without first consulting the Kingsman and alerting them of his plans and actions; for this would bring the two orders in direct conflict and for this I believe that Lord Graham is not just a well trained swordsman but one of the true masters of the blade from the Kingsman. It is the only way everything makes sense and puts me in further danger just exposing this connection as the Kingsman have been very upset about the new revelations coming forward. Also as we all know the Post Office and the Presidents Men are deeply connected and they came after the Kingsman.
Tinker’s strong points might be his leadership, political affiliations, wealth and sheer British Grit but he also holds a little secret that many have forgotten and thats why they call him Tinker. This man is a true genius and can take the most insane idea and bring it to life and with a little backing he can mass produce these ideas and turn them into truly terror inducing weapons of war and the ultimate in spy gear. Lord Graham would get the help he needed when the Steel Legion would rise to power and appoint Lord Joseph Millburn as their Commandant; Lord Millburn is close friends with Lord Graham and would offer Tinker an outlet to create new inventions and push his creativity to the limit for the Steel Legion and in exchange Lord Graham’s London Dungeon would gain access to the vast communication and technological upgrades that the Steel Legion was bringing to England; of course their was a vast amount of Pounds being exchanged and for Lord Graham he would be able to improve his agents training and extend his reach outside the UK for the first time since their inception.
Lord Graham would as well be re-appointed as the Commandant of MI6 and he would serve on the board of directors for the Steel Legion and become their Chief Operating Officer; the Board would over see the day to day aspects of the Steel Legion and the funding of projects, while the Round Table would oversee the actual military and governing aspects of the Steel Legion a project that worked until 2074 when the new King, Avery Cortland would manipulate the Round Table into invading the United Canadian American States (UCAS) though this would ultimately fail and some say it was the Board of Directors that cut the funding to the war or the warnings of the Kingsman that would eventually have the Round Table change their direction and vote against the King and his supporters and hence the invasion was over before any real damage could be done.
Though for Lord Graham this partnership would be a dream come true, a agency that had nearly limitless funding, and state of the art manufacturing factories throughout the UK and Europe and with the Steel Legion having a truce with the Deaths Hand their factories would remain untouched by Alexander and his regional generals or it could be less the truce and more fear of what would happen if he attacked the Steel Legion. Well history already has shown what happens if Alexander attacks a Steel Legion held territory and that would result in total defeat and the Deaths Hand’s first ever known surrender to the Iron Calvary Division and the Hand’s Panzer Division being forced to yield. After a second lengthy campaign lead by the infamous General Hershel Horowitz would lead to a stalemate and the Hand eventually accepting terms of surrender and a treaty offered by the Steel Legion out of pity to the broken Horowitz and allow him to save face in front of Alexander.
Lord Graham might not have been on the battlefield against the Hand but he might as well have been since it was his creations that have given the Steel Legion the advantage they needed against the mighty super power of the Deaths Hand. Tinker’s toys as they are joked about have turned the Steel Legion into a super power state of their own and in only a few years, they went from being a joke of an order that was clouded with infighting to a true menace for all that oppose their will. They have a choke hold in the United Kingdom and have spread their influence abroad aiding the terrorists of the Deaths Hand and Human Resistance Movement and recently entering the America’s and aligning with the Brotherhood of Mercenaries, Son’s of the True Confederacy, The Son’s of Liberty and going as far as to stake claim within the Emerald Cities lowest district the Bowery or as Lord Millburn call’s it “New Millburn”; all this and the Chief Operating Officer and the Chief Finical Officer Sir Oxford Windsor and the board have not only allowed this they have issued funding and given Lord Millburn the green light. This reporter believes their is something fishy going on seeing the Board and the Round Table never do anything without a reason and the board only cares about the bottom line and territory .
Add the issue of Lord Graham being the Commandant of British Intelligence and the Chief Director of the London Dungeon it only means one thing and that is the Steel Legion is not done focusing on the United Canadian American States and their desire to expand their territory and the Steel Legion’s influence is quite obvious to this reporter. According to my reports the board have already constructed multiple manufacturing plants within the UCAS and the abandoned regions of Seattle that have been bought up by the Legion this includes the two abandoned corporate headquarters within the Industrial Complex of the city. Wake up America the Steel Legion is not your friend they are a corporate military that cares nothing for your liberty and only the total domination of the free world and the restoration of the British Empire.
Now back to the man known as Tinker again not to be confused with the demolitions legend known as Ticker though both are extreme menaces as Tinker is well known for making things that explode and having trained both Ticker and Polaris and not to mention Category 5 and having once employed the Wolverines; the connection to the Wolverines and Category 5 is simple and that is that Lord Graham is their biological father though he was to busy being a noble to raise his children and like many of his ilk he sent his son’s off to be educated and trained before accepting them as his son’s as adults. Though he didn’t give them his surname and thus they would never be inline to inherit his title; he made certain they took his wife’s maiden name and by English Law that would remove any noble status they would have claim to; he also handed them off to his dear friend a fellow English nobleman Archibald Kingsbury who long since turned his back on the United Kingdom to focus on the restoring of the Untied States of America and was considered a traitor by many of noble birth.
For Lord Graham this what not an issue as he has shown that he cares nothing for the sanctity of England as he has gathered some of Europe’s and America’s worst criminals to become members of his London Dungeon and has been holding most of England hostage for generations and all because he abused his relationship with the Queen and tricked her into enforcing her Royal powers and thus bringing to light the London Dungeon and their is absolutely nothing that Parliament nor Scotland Yard can do about it and all these years later the London Dungeon is here to stay and with the Pirate King Avery Cortland now the sitting Monarch of England and the personal and business dealings between the two men this is a true partnership of convenience. Tinker’s Toys are well used by both the Crimson Bloods and the Sea Wolves and not to mention he is to blame for many of the advanced cybernetic implants that are freely given to the rebels and Steel Legion.
This man is not the friend of England and he has fooled all the nobles and the people of England that he is just that and without him we would be in grave danger; the people don’t ask any questions and just accept this old fogey as their protector and just ignore the big question “Why are you still alive?” they also just ignore the fact that he is a legendary swordsman and basically brought shadow work to Europe and opened the door for many to work freely and even extended his influence to spare James Groves from the gallows and having him exiled though this was not a true banishment cause when your friend is the head of all of the British Intelligence and has political influence that spreads across Europe and America it’s not going to hard to sneak the British Assassin and Thief back into the UK. Some say that Lord Graham is working to help restore of freedom and is helping the people of England feel the same liberties known by those in America and to that I say lies! If that was the case than explain the Steel Legion enforcing their will and law onto all of us, the Executioners Guild and their inhumane policies and rules, and the restoring of a King to rule over us and removing the power once held by Parliament.
Lord Graham is just a power hungry, greedy monster that will use every dirty trick in the book to keep us in fear and needing his protection from the international threat, yet he signs a document that allows the monster of the Deaths Hand right in our front door and to set up camps within the countryside. He refuses to hear any negotiations with the elves or the Nog and only sends money and troops to Lord Grimm in Northern Ireland and keeps Edgar Malone the Executioners Guild President from stretching the necks of the nobleman that refuse to sign the Treaty. He might just be the Commandant of MI6 but his power is far reaching and even the King doesn’t make a move without first asking Lord Graham’s permission, no one man should have that much power, all these reasons above are why I believe that Lord Graham is the real deal and not an impostor seeing that only Lord Graham would have the knowledge and charisma to control all of these elements at once and still keep the criminals within the London Dungeon in check seeing his men are kill by any means necessary and ask no questions they are devoutly loyal to their Director and Founder.
The London Dungeon is the biggest problem we have and it’s not going away any time soon, everybody is afraid of that agency even the Demure won’t make a move against them out of fear; this says something they didn’t care about upsetting the Brotherhood, the Bounty Hunters and the Brothers Grimm but get spooked at the chance of upsetting Lord Graham and the London Dungeon; they never even exposed the membership of that order so they are true ghosts of the past and we are left to wonder who they are. We were given a partial list of the Kingsman but nothing on the London Dungeon besides Lord Graham and one can assume Sir Windsor seeing that knight is Lord Graham’s personal aid and private inspector; any other records of Sir Windsor are well guarded by MI6 and any decker that tries to break into those servers just gets burned and their family and friends are tagged as terrorists and dealt with by the ghosts of the past and never seen again. Lord Graham has gallons of blood on his hands and is supposed to be the one keeping the Round Table in check, he is beyond blood thirsty and this is one tax man you don’t want to ever cross and just pay what he asks or it’s a trip to his dungeon and only God knows what goes on within the halls of West Minster Abbey seeing know one has ever broken into the London Dungeon and survived to tell the tale.
Lord Graham and his Ghosts are erasers and cleaners and the best in the world, so remember that fact he is a total spook and has dirt on basically everyone within a place of power and it’s reported that even those legally elected in England are only running because Lord Graham allows it and he allows it because he knows their dirty laundry and where the skeletons are buried. This man needs to meet the hangman’s noose to spare the UK from his personal crushing grasp; when Alexander Church won’t make a move against Lord Graham that should worry everyone Alexander does what he damn well pleases and yet a simple old timer has him gridlocked and fearful of his toys and his ghosts.
So just be warned that this spook is still in action within England and his ghosts are very real and by the time this article goes live I will be dead and yet another victim of the London Dungeon; so just don’t let my death be in vain and rise up against your oppressors and take to the streets and demand justice and equality, demand that Lord Graham hang, demand the Steel Legion leave England and demand the Pirate King to meet his end by the rope and allow Mr.Malone to perform his sacred duties and remove all the nobleman that refuse to accept the terms of peace…………………………………………………..
