Bio: Yet another member of the Bounty Hunters guild that has crawled out of the shadows to revel himself is the man the call the Centurion a man that was long thought to have been dead and buried; the feared brother of the Watchman and Binary a man that alone is a force to be reckoned with and alongside his family he is an unstoppable force bringing death and destruction in his wake. This man was thought to have fallen in battle during his days with the Sentinels during the defence of England from the Elves of Ireland, though it seems that it was only a ruse and he just used the carnage to slip into the shadows to further his older brothers agenda. The Centurion is a man that really not much is known about since he has stayed concealed within the shadows and working behind the scenes for many a decade; it is said that this man is far older than he appears and knowing what we do about the genetic modifications that can stall or even stop the ageing process it is not a far cry to believe this man has seen his fair share of turmoil and historical events.
The process of genetic immortality was only known about in the latter part of the 2050’s but we have come to learn that this process is far older than we could ever believe and was and still is only available to rich and powerful; and seeing how quickly they have advanced the process in under twenty years seals the deal that this process was around for far longer and what is available on the open market is still far less powerful than what actually exists. We have photographic evidence recently uncovered of Ira Oliver alive and well in the early part of the 1900’s and this means that his brothers are also just as old if not older; these photographs only place Ira in a Edwardian era. We have no reason to believe that he is even far older than that, also lost records that have recently surfaced state that their is a mystical ability that grants immortality and was able to survive the fall of the fifth world and would become lost in the records of the sixth world; thanks to the Librarian abolishing all spells, and powers that would hail from that period of time.
So according to most academics today the process of ageing is just a state of mind and many have accepted the fact that their is far more to the sixth world than anyone actually knows. Ira Oliver if thats actually his real name could be far more powerful than anyone actually knows, especially seeing his age is unknown; this man is a mystery and it seems that he likes being obfuscated within history and only till recently has he made his presence known and thats when he was seen commanding a battalion of soldiers marching directly into the Native Lands from an undisclosed location within Canada and leaving nothing alive in his wake. He is supposed to be a bounty hunter but it seems that he is more a military commander now than hunter of the guilty, though from the stories of the Centurion when he was in action he was a force to be reckoned with an his skills with the blade where mesmerising and downright terrifying, he is a master of war and a master of the hunt. His presence alone could explain why many criminals would vanish or suddenly turn themselves in looking as they have seen a ghost; this is a man that is spoken about in legend and even after his supposed death he was hailed a hero, and true master of warfare, the Centurion has no equal that is known and seeing that he served with the Sentinels only means that he holds the same discontent for the legal authority as his fellow rebels.
Again most of what is known about Ira is rumour and speculation, this man is a wild card and has been in action for generations; one of the first to play possum and allow the shadow of death to fully cloak him in mystery; thus allowing the legend of the Centurion to grow to epic proportions and allow for his enemies to be grateful of his demise and eventually forget about him as the Centurion would become lost within the fog of war; this being said he is back in action and I believe he never left the hunt just lurking within the shadows and allowing his legend to grow and allowing himself to become a ghost of the past; a perfect asset to the Ghost Division, a man with no morals, no soul, and no remorse to lurk within the shadows as a ghost of the past hunting down the enemies of the rebellion and bringing forth his own special brand of justice.
Be very careful when engaging or dealing with the Centurion for he is very dangerous and is unpredictable, we know almost nothing about him besides his mastery of war; w have no actual records of this man and no agency he is connected to will willingly release information about Colonel Ira Oliver so don’t bother even asking; all you might get for your troubles is the single bullet theory and a shallow grave. The Centurion is one of the rebels best kept secrets until now and it seems that General Oliver has allowed for the world to learn of his brothers presence and that he is very much alive and bringing his decades if not longer worth of combat prowess to an enemy that can and will never stand a chance before the Centurion and soon all will be bowing before their new master as he marches uncontested through the Native Lands. The Centurion is here to stay and he will wade through a river of blood to finish what they started, he will take no prisoners and will never accept surrender, this man is bent on genocide and cutting a bloody division between the east and west of the native lands; he is determined to march the natives back onto the trail of tears and seclude them into one of two reservations where they are to remain.
It seems that General Archibald Kingsbury and General Oliver are done dealing with the Native threat and have unleashed their Master of War to make certain the job gets done properly, and with the Native Government dealing with a civil uprising caused by the radio broadcasting from Denver at the hands of Scalp Hunter message it will only make the Centurions job that much easier to cut and divide. Will he accept the assistance of rebelling natives is unknown, this man is a wild card and one can be certain that this is not even General Kingsbury’s final play; that snake in grass will have plenty of moves left and cards to play before he is done with this war, the Centurion and General Oliver is only one of his many moves and seemingly the strike is far earlier than expected but again to predict General Kingsbury is nearly impossible and even those that try are still left guessing what his next move is. So in closing the Centurion is cutting a great divide within the nation and it seems he is headed straight for Denver, so I would begin thinking about relocating if you reside in Denver and can be considered an enemy of the Centurion.
