-From his birth, Alex Munro has been an extraordinary kid. Being mildly autistic, he has had his fair share of difficulties in adapting to life around other people. It is no surprise that he has spent most of his time reading books and wandering in imaginary worlds of his own creation. Going to school didn’t ease things, but despite the bullying and other hardships he has gone through three successful semesters.+From his birth, Alex Munro has been an extraordinary kid.

-Until this summer, that is. Nobody knew what happened, but suddenly his condition started to deteriorate. As time went by he closed up more day after day. Finally, only his mother could communicate with him. He kept mumbling of “a great darkness that is coming” over and over again.+Until this summer, that is.

-It started with earthquakes. Seismologists and other scientists were bewildered: how could such events happen ​so locally. ​It seems that the center of these bizarre incidents is located in a quiet suburb. FBI took over the investigation,​ as there was a doubt that someone had developed a weapon that was being used in US soil.+It started with earthquakes.

-Obadiah Smith is in a man nearing his fifties, laconic and tired of this world. He had a strict, religious upbringing ​of which breaking free had been a traumatic ordeal in his youth. Later his trials ​to create a normal, social life for himself failed over and over. Only his work has given him any rewards.+Obadiah Smith is in a man nearing his fifties, laconic and tired of this world. He had a strict, religious upbringing; winning his independence ​had been a traumatic ordeal in his youth. Later his attempts ​to create a normal, social life for himself failed over and again. Only his work has given him any rewards.
  
-He has replaced the faith in his life by extreme patriotism. The level of his devotion ​usually ​borders ​of the insane, but he has somehow ​managed to keep his job so far. Couple ​of recent cases have pushed him near the edge though, and already his every move is being watched closely – if required, they can take him out fairly quickly. The sad thing is, when he is not going to the edge he is a great agent. This is no surprise as he puts every fiber of his being into his work.+Obadiah ​has replaced the faith in his life with extreme patriotism.

-About a year ago as a part of a difficult case he ended up using special design ​drug called Crytaxa. Under the influence of the substance he doesn’t need to sleep more than few hours a night, but obtaining it requires ​contacts to fairly shady individuals. ​His theory ​is that Crytaxa was created by a shadow operation under US government, to boost the performance of soldiers. It is a good theory, even though he doesn’t have a shred of proof to back it up.+About a year agoas a part of a difficult case, Obadiah ​ended up hooked to specially designed ​drug called Crytaxa.

-In addition to sleep deprivation,​ Crytaxa seems to help him in keeping the memories of his turbulent past and social anxiety in check. Unfortunately he seems to have the need to up the dosage of the stuff once in awhile.+In addition to sleep deprivation,​ Crytaxa seems to help Obadiah ​in keeping the memories of his turbulent past and social anxiety in check.

-Currently Obadiah is investigating ​phenomena of weird localized earthquakes. He has put the house he thinks ​is in the center of the phenomena under tight surveillance and checks through ​the data day and night. Other agents consider him mad, as he claims that the boy living in the house is responsible for the ordeal.+CurrentlyObadiah is investigating ​the weirdly ​localized earthquakes.

-He would show everyone he is right – and complete the mission no matter the cost. Perhaps the boy is a new superweapon generated by the Russians, or a spy with paranormal abilities. Perhaps he could harness the boy’s abilities to aid US in its struggles against foreign powers. He just needs to get the boy under government control as soon as possible.+Obadiah ​would show everyone ​that he is right – and complete the mission no matter the cost.
