Randall O’Reilly was born into the Irish Republican Army, the descendant of men who had fought for their homeland since the day it was settled. He started as a child thief, stealing small but important documents or articles that could be used to blackmail or intimidate the opposition. Randall was fast, intelligent, but he was also cold and remote. He had no friends, no one to spend time with. When he wasn’t committing crimes in the name of the cause, he could be found sitting somewhere quiet, patiently carving things from wood.

Although the IRA officially declared a ceasefire in 1997, many clandestine operations were still underway. Randall had volunteered for a special program co-founded by a number of Irish and American companies that would increase his speed and reflexes.
For the next five years, Randall was no longer a minor thief, he became a super-killer, wiping out targets for the IRA with little or no remorse. One night his entire life changed when he met a beautiful Scottish girl named Elisa Caitrina. After that his coldness began to melt, his life started moving slower and he began to feel happy for the first time.

Of course,  when a man digs himself a grave of crime and evil, someone inevitably must die. The IRA was losing on all fronts and they were not happy about losing their multimillion dollar super-investment. To send Randall a message, four men armed with nail filled baseball bats beat Elisa to death in a dark alley outside the bar where they were supposed to meet. Randall showed up too late to save her, too late to do anything at all. And so he ran. He hopped on a plane right after Elisa’s funeral and headed to Canada. Months later the head of the CSIS invited Randall to join the team code named The Legion. Randall hopes to forget his past, but eventually the super-speedster is going to have to stop running and when he does his enemies will be waiting.
