  • Sean grew up well loved in your typical, average family of 5 with his two siblings, Jack and Monica. One fateful day in June of 2004, Sean and Monica - aged 16 and 8 - were riding their bikes to the local park, sirens wailing in the distance. Sean loved the thrill of biking as fast as he could, of feeling the wind rushing past him. Together, they reached the final turn before the park. A steep hill was the only thing between them and the park. Eager to feel the thrill of a steep decline - Sean sent his bike as fast as it could go, rushing past the trail of police cars and sirens roaring opposite him up the hill. Finally reaching the bottom, Sean came to a screeching stop and waited for his little sister to come down the hill. Several minutes went by, and Monica was nowhere to be seen. Grudgingly, Sean pushed his bike up the hill muttering under his breath about slow siblings. The top of the hill revealed something out of a nightmare. Sirens. Yelling. Guns. His sister’s mangled bike lay beside the vehicle of fleeing bank robbers.

    • Sean’s parents died not long after Monica - the loss of their angel too much to bear. Sean angry with the world, found comfort in faith. Jack found no comfort. Sean became determined to never let another family grieve the way he grieved. He breezed through his undergraduate policing degree, topped his cohort at Police Academy, and went on to become an Inspector of Traffic and Highway Patrol. Jack on the other hand sought revenge. Jack believed the law was a hindrance rather than a tool for justice. His simmering rage at the criminals who ended his sisters life drove him into the seediest parts of town. Nothing would satisfy him except for his sister’s killer meeting his maker. Jack’s story is his own to tell…

    • Sean - now a decorated police officer - finds his brother standing over the corpse of their sister’s killer. Torn between duty and family. Revenge and justice. Biting words are said before the two brother part ways, doomed to never again reconcile. Sean’s mind is clear - there is no wiggle room in the law. His brother - and any like him - must come to see justice.

Sean has applied for local law enforcement, desperate to use his skills to protect and serve. To the law. Even if it means enforcing the full weight of the law against his only remaining family.
