About Thomas „Tom“ Paxton

Tom Paxton is a top-drawer agent for the Company with an impeccable resume. His extraordinary physical strength and agility as well as his talent for disappearing seamlessly into any environment make him the ideal candidate for the job.

Paxton is tall (6’1”), well-built, with sinewy athletic body.

Very little is known about his childhood. His father was a initially a Secret Service agent, but later became an agent for The Company. His mother died at his tender age. The tragic death of his mother in a bank robbery, and growing up with an assertive father without siblings, gave him a very specific view of the world and leaving him to fend for himself at a young age.


As soon as he could, he joined the US military. Stationed in Burma for three years, Paxton had a short-lived relationship with a local woman. As the relationship became too close for comfort, he severed it abruptly. However, the woman gave birth to his daughter, and Paxton still sends money every month to the mother and the child, exposing traces of compassion – a rarely seen trait of his personality.

His ambition drove him to continue his Military career at West Point Academy, leaving his previous life behind. He graduated with honors and joined the Secret Service. Shortly afterwards, he was recruited by the Company. Paxton was attracted by the Company’s goal-oriented approach, efficiency, no pencil-pushing all-action assignments, and unscrupulous Machiavellianism of the leaders.

Paxton was on the fast track in the Company, getting more and more responsibilities and climbing up the hierarchy. He fully believed that what he's doing was for the good of the country, and the higher cause he was a part of. This belief, fueled by strong patriotic moral fiber and combined with his extreme efficiency and effectiveness, makes him the perfect agent for the company. Two years ago his father was killed in the line of duty, working on an undercover assignment for The Company.

Paxton’s Personality and Character Traits

Paxton’s characteristics are dominated by his devotion to his job, being a company agent. This is reflected in his personality and how he lives his life.

he Company is his family. He respects the Company’s resoluteness and omnipresent power. Although being a man of action, he believes people must be forced into prosperity, as the masses are too lethargic to get there themselves. He’s driven by ambition, including rolling up the Company’s ramp. Above all, he believes in completing a mission – any mission – no matter what stands in between him and success.
