The heroes of yesterday are dead and gone. Division and the Mutant Control Enforcement Agency (MCEA) saw to that. This dystopia we live in is the result of one anti-mutant hate crime that sparked the third world war. The law now requires mutants to register, to spend the rest of their lives being a number on a file with a tracking device on their wrist or in their bloodstream.

For a while, the children of fallen heroes started to work in the shadows as the new X-Men. Not all that long ago, the latest incarnation of the X-Men was brought down in flames by Division's efforts. Team members captured, Agents killed, Cosmic fire everywhere... It seems as though the days of the X-Men have come and gone once again. Or have they?

Notice: Human Division employees are still much needed, even if they're depowered mutants. We would also love to see more MHA, Morlock and Purifier affiliated characters.

TACTICAL SPECIAL AGENT | N/A | SPECIAL AGENT COPE
" if you think you've won, you never saw me change the game "
  • READING MICRO EXPRESSIONS
    The ability to recognize, notice and read minute twitches of the human face. For many who attempt to study this it is a long and arduous process, taking years of training and honing to pick up on the tiny variations the facial muscles make. Given Cope's early history it became something of an innate sense. An ability he keeps up with. This allows a degree of deciphering when he is in interrogations or hostile situations. Being able to read the brief moments between expressions holds a varying array of information.

    HUMAN LIE DETECTOR
    Coupled with his ability to read the micro facial expressions is his ability to catch a lie. Never play poker with Andrew, he'll know your tell before you've gone through the first round. Being the logical and calculating individual he is, Agent Cope relies heavily upon his own brand of information gathering. Included in this is his ability to pass various forms of lie detection equipment. Over the years he has trained himself how to surpass the scans of a polygraph test.

    EXPERT MARKSMAN & LONG RANGE SNIPER
    During his time served in the military, Andrew became a highly skilled marksman. Earning and being awarded Expert marksmanship badges for; field artillery, machine and sub-machine guns, rifles, small bore rifles and pistols. He served for four years as a military sniper. He has a perchance for .50cal rifles, silenced sniper rifles and handguns, and his handgun of choice, and personal favorite, his Desert Eagle Mark XIX .44cal Magnum pistol. This gun is on his person at all times, as is two smaller concealed handguns and a 5" bowie knife.

    TACTICAL EXPERT
    Andrew trained specifically to be not only a sniper, but also a tactical expert. From a young age he leaded the finesse of laying out a plan and having all the pieces fall into place. During his service he often drew up tactical plans of attack or other combat strategies. Agent Cope on occasion has a unique vision of an attack, or precise tactical strikes. Andrew is also a very patient man and looks can be deceiving. He has read the book; The Art of War by Sun Tzu no less than fifteen times. And although he dislikes being lied to he understands the greatest strength is the art of deception and misdirection.

    HIGHLY SKILLED IN MELEE COMBAT
    From a young age Andrew was a fighter. Over the years his hand-to-hand and close quarters combat skills were greatly improved thanks to dedication, discipline and training. All of which came with the next phase of his life. Today, Cope stays in pique physical condition and spends at least one hour a day doing melee combat. Agent Cope is proficient in Krav-Magraw, Brazillian Ju-jitsu and various forms of military and mixed-martial arts hand-to-hand combat tactics. His reflexes are slightly heightened above that of a normal human as is his pain threshold.

  • BAD SHOULDER
    Like any warm blooded human male of his height and stature, Andrew isn't endowed with any additional strengths. Like any human he is susceptible to a varying array of physical, mental and projectile attacks. He heals like that of a standard man and severe injury without medical attention could prove fatal depending on the wound. During the Rhode Island Blitz, Agent Cope, still an active duty Army Ranger found himself in a hazardous situation. The results of which ended with him in the med-bay and having his entire left shoulder joint being replaced by an adamantium joint, collar bone and nano-biotech to simulate muscle and ligament control. He hates the synthetic replacement and the technology in his body. He believes it leaves an opportunity for weakness. While the joint itself is fully functional and gives enhanced endurance its composition and technology could be manipulated by a mutant with technopathic or metalic manipulation powers.

    CONTROL FREAK
    Andrew is meticulous. His keen sense for detail and preparations often drive a core of his actions. It makes him an excellent agent, but it also drives him crazy when assignments are run haphazardly. Andrew likes control and in some situations this has come out as bouts of obsessive compulsive disorder. He tries not to let it bother him, but when people don't follow orders he can get a bit bent. Trying to control situations is what lost him his natural shoulder joint in the first place.

    BURBON AND SCOTCH
    This is not as much a weakness as it is a bad habit. Cope is a fan of aged liquors and ends almost every day with a glass. This habit has increased in frequency since his operation in 2028. There is speculation some of it has to deal with the divorce.

    THE EX-WIFE
    If Andrew ever loved, it was her. At first they seemed the perfect match but things change, as do people. Working together puts additional stress in the situation. Some part of him still loves her; their fights however are something brutal. Both physically and mentally, their make-up sex was just as epic. Part of him believes he might still react if something happened to her, the other part of him believes he needs to work her out of his system. Still temptation lingers, and the fact they see each other in varying frequencies around the headquarters; she is a Division agent specialized in communications. Despite the divorce the pair have found each other in the others bed from time to time. However they have also been found in briefing rooms arguing over mission tactics, details or past events, making anyone else in the room feel rather awkward when it happens.

  • GROWING UP IN FOSTER CARE - 1995-2007
    Cope doesn't know his biological parents. Why they gave him up, or if they are still even alive. The truth is, he doesn't give a shit.

    For the first few years of his early life, he was known as Andrew Doe. Abandoned as an infant at a Safe Surrender site only a few months old. There was speculation, that his parents might have been mutants and as he grew he was closely watched for any displays of mutant tendencies or evolution. Once, when he was five, he was tested for the mutant x-gene. Negative results came back and he was switched into an all boys foster home.

    Throughout his early years Andrew struggled in the foster care system. Based on his size he was picked on as the underdog, which put him in countless tussles. It also started to allow him to read people, physically. When he was eight he moved into his fourth home; which was worse than all the rest. Not only did he have to deal with the constant social adjustments of a new living arrangement, but also dealing with new family. Living in a house full of unwanted children, it was hard to have your own things. Andrew's need for structure and his want for control in situations was a constant source of turmoil, teasing and conflict.

    By eleven Andrew was in his eighth home and had all but given up on any ideas of being adopted. At this point in his life he had started to learn the various little nuances that would continue into his adult life; patient, strong willed, controlled, relentless, deceptive and manipulative. He had learned how to set himself up in positions to gain more attention and control. Adapt at playing logic games, stacking dominos and mouse trap - he also enjoyed setting things in place and waiting until a later date to enact them.

    ADOPTION BY GENERAL COPE: AGE 12 - 2007
    His twelfth birthday came with an array of changes. It was the year he was adopted, but it was also the year his hate for mutants bore into his mentality. Life up until then had gone smooth for the past year. Besides the transient few in the home Andrew had set himself up as a leader amongst lost boys. He would have been fine keeping it as such when a new boy moved into the house; Jason Prewett. Jason was a bully, an ego, and to Andrew, a simple minded douchebag. Though he stood a head above Andrew, Andrew was one of few boys who didn't bend to Jason's demands. In fact he was rather obstinate against them. The two boys fought constantly and Andy started to pick up Jason's secrets, his lies.

    It was the summer of 2007 when the boys got into it, fists flying. Andrew had the upper hand when the tables turned on him. Jason was no ordinary boy; he was a mutant who had no pause using his newly developed mutations against Andrew in the fight. During the skirmish, the foster family dog was killed, a dog that Andy loved, and fire set to a majority of his belongings by Jason's blasts. These started to trigger a resentment toward mutant kind. Andrew won the fight by pinning the boy under a bookcase. The Authorities were called and one of the men was a retired Army General, by the name of Edward Cope.

    Edward had spent so much of his life devoted to the military and protecting humanity against forces like mutants, that he never had a family of his own. Despite his aging years, he had always wanted a son. When he heard the story recounted and looked at Andrew's scared eyebrow from the fight, and the bruises starting to form; he started the process of adoption. It took six months, but because of his status and connections Edward was approved as a single parent and Andrew moved in shortly before Thanksgiving.

    For Christmas Andrew was given a middle name and an official last name; Andrew Lee Cope. Lee because Edward's family had at one point been decedents of Robert E. Lee who fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War. In a sense Edward loved Andrew, but it was by no means a love that was squishy and fuzzy, fluffy feels. It was more about respect, understanding and earning approval. Along with the discipline came some of the mindset that mutants weren't to be trusted, that one day their actions would spark a war; years later it did.

    WEST POINT & THE RANGERS: AGE 17 -23 2012-2017
    Andrew had been reared by a war hardened man. Although General Cope was very mindful of Andrew and strove to give him the attention he deserved, he also required a lot from the boy. Encouraging him constantly to develop his skills and natural talents for plans and tactics. Edward practically moulded his young son for the Army Academy. And early on, Andrew had adjusted well to a highly disciplined and regimented schedule. Everything was planned and he relished in it. Accepting an offer at West Point was the next logical step in his personal progression of growth.

    He already had all of the markers of an Officer before he walked through those front doors. For the first two years he excelled in the tutelage and course work. Andrew was born to be military; he felt it. He was entering his Junior year when Warren Worthington was beheaded in 2015. Andrew, and his fellow students, watched the massacre knowing it would affect them all. And eventually it did. Not right away, but slowly West Point started to train them to be field deployment ready.

    After graduation Andrew applied for the Rangers, taking almost an additional year of training and physical, mental, emotional abuse to become a special operative. Cope found his finesse with weapons and thrived on the melee combat situations. Constantly pushing himself to be better than the men around him. Andrew found his niche in being a sniper while learning tactical strategies. By his completion of the Rangers program and first assignment after A and B School, war was starting. Andrew had been one of the tactical soldiers on foot during the Muir Island Attack, it was his first tour of duty in many to come.

    RHODE ISLAND INCIDENT: 2023 - AGE 28 - INJURED BADLY
    The entirety of his military career had been spent with the Rangers. He lead various tactical missions, has a ledger full of red and blacked out case files. Andrew was a man of calculated action. In war some of that had to adapt, and he along with it. During the Rhode Island Incident he lead a team of seven men in before it went pear shaped. Worse than that, Rhode Island became a clusterfuck of activity. His task was suddenly overshadowed by the appearance of Tony Stark; Ironman. The United States Military and Division had all but declared full on warfare against just one man in a flying metal suit.

    Hating the lack of control the situation held, Andrew attempted to take control by force. He was in one of the mobile command humvees when the Ironman was finally shot down, not without a fight. Shrapnel and explosion blast rocked the battlefield, Tony Starks last pulse beam fired into the humvee he was in, the humvee that had given the deadly force order and missile lock. The explosion killed four service men, critically injured five and drove the four inch thick side wall of the humvee through his shoulder completely shattering his clavicle and irrevocably destroying his upper humerus, ripping through his rotator cuff muscle and tendon and completely severing his ligament. It was the worst pain he had felt in his entire life. Besides the ringing in his ears, a concussion, several broken ribs, a burst blood vessel in his right eye - Cope nearly had his left arm brutally amputated.

    Two weeks later Cope woke up in the Med-bay hooked to machines and monitors. His wounds were slowly healing and he was relieved to see his arm intact, initially. Because of the severity of the damage the doctors were forced to replace the broken bone and joint with an artificial one made of adamantium. In order to have the joint functional with active mobility, they used synthetic mesh and muscular structures along with biorhythmic nano-tech to simulate muscle, tendon and ligament movement based on the normal electric muscle brain pulses given for movement.

    Because of his service and rank, Major, he was awarded the Purple Heart as well as the Silver Star in his part against the rogue vigilante; Tony Stark. It took another year of recovery and adjustment. And although the join functions normally and has enhanced durability, Andrew hates feeling partly synthetic. It makes him feel less human. An aspect that is burned into his core, as was his detest of mutant kind and their endless actions of manipulation and power abuse.

    MARRIED 2025 - AGE 31
    During the time of his recovery, Andrew was forced into a desk jockey position. One in which he highly disliked. Although he worked on an inside level on tactics, he hated not being in the field. It was then he met a Division communications agent who worked in Cryptoanalitics. She was stunning and they dated off and on for six months before dating seriously for another two years, one of which was his during his recovery.

    She was one of few people he enjoyed spending his time around; smart, ambitious, dedicated and gorgeous.

    Andrew asked her to marry him and she agreed. They were we'd in a small ceremony and he wore his dress blues. It also marked the last year of his active duty status. The couple moved to Chicago as the military and Division started to make the new country Capitol their main headquarters.

    JOINING DIVISION: 2026 - 32
    Deciding he wanted a change in his life, and with the mutant registration act coming into effect, as well as the war slowing - Andrew accepted a very generous offer to join the special force and mutant agency known as Division. Given his years of military expertise, actions and dutiful service Andrew was a level one candidate for a Special Agent position. It took three months to make the transition, as well as going through Division form of training and assimilation procedures.

    Andy quickly adapted to life within Division and made his way up the pay grade scale. The further he got in the more secrets he learned and the higher his clearance level became. Although he is not fully aware of everything Division is involved in, Andrew heads up various tactical teams. He is an ambitions son of a bitch and he has his sights set on Grace Renfroe's position as Director of Division.

    DIVORCE: 2029 - AGE 35
    When you have two A type personalities, working for the same secretive organization it can put a certain strain on the relationship. There may have also been the factor that Andrew never really experienced love the way most people do. Not that she asked him for it, but what is a relationship without it? On most things they had an understanding, other times it appeared the happy couple weren't so happy. Cope and his wife began to argue in more frequent matters, secrets were starting to be kept and disputes over pay grade and security clearance came into play.The fights between them seemed to escalate; when they fought things ended up broken. Then again when they made up, things could still end up broken. Ultimately the pair decided to separate, and then filed for divorce. Perhaps it was the tension and the stress of their positions, or perhaps there was something more.

    CURRENTLY
    Andrew has worked for Division for eight years now and shows no sign of slowing down. As a Special Agent he is constantly in and out of the field. He has done his fair share of classified actions and understands the manipulations of war. Despite the fact the war has ended, Andrew knows better than to take a placid outlook on life. His outlook on mutants hasn't much improved. Andrew sees mutants as a poison on humanity. Even though he has to work with a small handful of them in the Mutant branch, he doesn't care for it. Andrew is cold and calculating and he is more than willing to use the mutant corp of Division as sacrificial lambs to slaughter. Agent Cope will and has used them [mutant agents] and set them up as scapegoats, and disposable assets.

    Because that's what they are disposable; they only serve one purpose, his.
