AGENT ECHO - "The Tomorrow Man"
Position: Time Traveler / Advanced Para-Military
Age: 22
Nationality: Japanese
Birthplace: Chicago, ACR (American Common Reich)
Code Designation: 7 o'clock

Agent Echo was the fuse that lit this powder keg. Originally from the year 2005, he has traveled back to present day 1941 bearing a letter addressed to President Roosevelt. The letter was a warning that if America didn't enter the war, the Nazis would conquer the world. Such is the future that Echo hails from.

Of the life that he led in 2005, I know very little. He's said that he belonged to a police organization whose job was to catch political dissidents. It was in this line of work that he was won over by a small rebel faction and broken of his fascist brainwashing. Why HE specifically was chosen as the messenger to go back in time, I still don't know, but something in that future has made him singularly interested in Sam. He goes to great lengths to be around her and protect her...a behavior bordering on inappropriate, as she IS a married woman.

Personality-wise, Echo has a short temper and even shorter patience. No one on this team is accustomed to following orders, but of all the people who should be, it's him. What he lacks in discipline, however, he makes-up for in combat. He's an excellent martial artist, and has the benefit of 60+ years of military history and tactical evolution to draw upon. Add to that, the 21st century equipment he's brought with him: a pair of goggles that allow him to see in the dark, (seemingly by sensing heat,) and a laser-gun that he refers to as a "Tele-forcer." It is a small, light-weight weapon, yet it's beam is capable of melting galvanized metal into slag. I have yet to see what it can do to a man, but its very existence makes me fear for that future yet to come.
