Jack Thorne began his career as an enforcer for an organized crime syndicate in Houston. Always a perceptive man, he soon saw that he had little future, so he enlisted in the military.
During his time in the Army, he honed his weapons skills and learned to move within the military criminal community. When his enlistment ended, he left with contacts who could supply weapons, ammunition, and trained fighters. Through a friend in the army, he secured a job with Sweet Heart Investments as a “security consultant.”
Thorne is methodical, careful, and ruthless. When he fights, he aims to kill. He makes decisions quickly and coldly. Thorne’s organized, perceptive mind makes him an excellent, if ruthless, administrator. Although Sweet Heart periodically “loans him out” so that he can personally shepherd promising start-ups along, his loyalties lie firmly with Sweet Heart. Likewise, the security guards under his control are loyal directly to him and not the company of the moment. Thorne’s job is twofold: keep Sweet Heart’s research investment on track, and keep Sweet Heart’s involvement a secret. Thorne goes to any length to fulfill that mission, including bribery, extortion, kidnapping, and even murder.
Thorne sees that the Enhanced Human Project is going badly. Dr. Philip Perry is growing increasingly unstable, and only luck stopped Joe Landis from revealing the operation. Thorne’s damage-control solution is to eliminate the remaining witnesses, namely Gary Sheets and the heroes. He means to let Perry finish his experiments on the current subjects, then erase MasterGene. He plans to kill Perry, leave his body on the bottom level of the MasterGene building, and permanently seal the lowest two levels. He will then leave, taking the Special Security force and all of Perry’s data with him.
