A rebel to the core, Sean Pierce chose his code name due to the irony of blind cave Mexican Tetras. When assigning his code name he was given the choice of eagle or hawk to compliment his legendary sharpshooting ability, but he chose Tetra because those other names were worn out, cliche and played by “lame” characters in history. So, he chose to go with the most misleading name while avoiding other animals with poor vision like bats and moles.
Sean Pierce is the younger brother of the more feared and popularly infamous Braden Pierce, aka the Godfather’s Sword. Braden received this moniker due to the fact that he and Sean were nephews to the boss of the Pierce Syndicate and billionaire CEO of the Pierce Corporation, Isaac Pierce.
Like Braden, Sean can’t remember much before his parents were murdered in 2194. Unlike Braden, Sean didn’t witness the murder because Braden shielded him from seeing their mother’s dead body. Thus, Sean lacks the silent coldness that consumes Braden. He lacks the sense of responsibility and maturity that Braden has displayed at an early age.
While Braden was put under the tutelage Guile Takizawa to learn the art of swordsmanship at the age of nine, Sean and his adopted Irish brother Forrest were shipped off to train with the older Black Creek Security soldiers at the age of fourteen. During those brutal, arduous years of training Sean showed a natural talent with his marksmanship, mastering a wide arrange of long ranged high-power rifles, machine guns, submachine guns, assault rifles, and hand guns. Braden and Sean were so separated during their training years that Sean bonded with Forrest and subconsciously considered him more of a brother. Braden has often sensed this and would make up for this by being overprotective later on during field missions.
Going against his Braden’s wishes, Sean took the Furyx Gene at the age of seventeen and nearly died from the injection, spending two months in the coma. The Furyx Gene is a gene-modification drug developed by Japanese pharmaceuticals to permanently enhance the user’s strength, speed, with all five senses heightened. The downside of course is its 68% chance of subjects dying from violent cerebral hemorrhaging fatalities. Sean did survive however, and as expected, his sharpshooting ability excelled beyond imagination.
His most impressive feat came during his first international assassination. In that mission, Sean perched himself cloaked on the balcony of a hotel with a modified M82 scoped rifle. At 2,275 meters out, Sean used a high-powered scoped rifle to snipe a state senator who was throwing a birthday party for his daughter off the coast of Tampico, Mexico. The yacht was so far away that the police didn’t even know where set up a trajectory. Sean’s uncle rewarded him with two antique long-barreled semi-automatic chrome plated pistols with his name engraved on it. These twin pistols would become Sean’s signature weapons.
With the combination of his deadly precision, his uncle’s favor and being the younger brother of the most feared enforcer in the Western Hemisphere, Sean’s natural cocky swagger has never gone checked. It would only manifest and blossom into a greater arrogance, narcissism and blazen disrespect towards authority and the rules, set by both law enforcement and the strict structure of the syndicate.
For instance, while most Black Creek soldiers wore standardized black professional uniforms. Sean and Forrest would casually strut the murder scene with hip hop apparel, complete with heavy coats, gold chains and trendy hoodies. Not only did he talk trash and dish out threats out to Tampa’s top tier mob bosses, he acted on those. Often times, killing associates for the most trivial offenses. Like tapping their shoulders, playing bad music. Or sitting someone else to a table after Sean and Forrest entered an establishment and made their presence known.
It wasn’t until his fight with Eliza Christie where he was kicked off a speeding train and sent crashing through an office building that he began to wizen up. But only to an extent. After Eliza kicked him into a building he spent nine months in rehab following his cybernetic surgery. The team gave him a new bionic spine and a right eye that can blast a solar powered energy beam. It has to be recharged by sunlight for three minutes after each use. Blasting this beam takes a strenuous physical toll on his legs and back so he only uses it as an ace in the hole.
While Sean appears to have matured in the face of the Syndicate’s top brass, in the eyes of his trusted friends,Forrest and Silver, Sean continues to enjoy the finer things in life, splurging on fancy cars, running up tabs at the casino and clubs and fathering six children from six different women before reaching the age of twenty-one. And if you think being a father has slowed him down, think again.
Sean has ambitions of moving up the power ladder within the syndicate. But no matter how much success he achieves, fate seems to be working against him. Eventually he comes to accept his place in the underworld. If he can’t take over the throne, he’ll gladly slaughter hundreds to make sure Braden will…Whether Braden wants it or not.
Sean’s calling card is was shot three times in the face at point blank range, a bullet in each eye and a direct impact into the tip of his victim’s nose.
