REAL NAME: Mike Brunner
OCCUPATION: DIA Field Agent, Rogue Delta Green Agent
EDUCATION: U.S. Army Special Forces Training
SPECIALTIES: Linguistics and Subversion
BACKGROUND: Brunner is average in every way that it is possible to be average. Appearance, I.Q., aptitudes, he seemed to be born with an innate talent for slipping through cracks, passing unnoticed and generally being ignored. His middle of the road, middle class Indiana family had no special asperations for their third son, and he tried his best not to disappoint them.
His one noticable talent, an affinity for languages, brought him to the attention of the army during his enlistment. They discovered Brunner’s true genius, an ability to blend. During training it was obvious, Mike Brunner had an almost uncanny ability to pass himself off as whatever it would take to get by in any social situation, not neccesarily get noticed, or excell, just…pass. The languages he learned he would gain a passing fluency within a short space of time, his knack for social customs was almost uncanny. With time he became a stellar field operative for the DIA.
What went unnoticed in all the testing and examination was Brunner’s almost complete lack of drive. His superiors saw this subsumation of will a good thing, not recognizing the extreme mental disorder that it actually represented. During a mission in Bosnia the DIA agent came to the attention of Delta Green. This proved to be disasterous to Mike Brunner and a source of potential ruin to Delta Green.
Agent Brunner was sent to the region to infiltrate a remote group slated for ‘clensing’ by the powers that be. His mission was to convice the group to relocate, but he soon had a change of heart. The reclusive citizens of the village proved to be something else indeed. Brunner witnessed human sacrifice and hideous rites during his brief time there. With a flawless mastery of local diction and a hacked connection to local military channels he called in a shelling that left the village in ruins.
DIA censure came down hard and fast but through string pulling, Delta Green, was able to protect the agent and put him to use elsewhere. They sent Brunner to a Wyoming safe house and put him to work translating some of the texts he brought back with him from the village. This proved to be the undoing of the agent. The writings, a sort of ‘hymnal’ to Nyarlathotep, opened Brunner’s mind to the influnce of the Outer God. He was driven mad, but his maddness, like the man, took on a quiet appearance. He turned over his work and did a few more projects for the organization, slowly collecting as much information about Delta Green as he could. When the time was ripe he made his move, taking down the other two members of his cell, three friendlies and a member of another cell in the process.
He has since gone to ground. It is rumoured that he has collected a few other operatives to help him and has formed a small force aimed specifically at stopping or hindering Delta Green operations.
