Mike Locken is one of the principal members of a group of freelance spies. A significant portion of their work is for the C.I.A. and while on a case for them, one of his friends turns on him and shoots him in the elbow and knee. His assignment, to protect someone, goes down in flames. He is nearly crippled, but with braces is able to again become mobile. For revenge as much as anything else, Mike goes after his ex-friend.

Mike Locken has plaster full-limb casts cut off his leg and arm. These plaster casts are semi-permanent casts meant to immobilize broken bones for long periods of time, from many weeks to several months. However, Mike's casts also cover surgical wounds from the shattered bones being surgically repaired. These surgical wounds have dressings that need changed regularly, probably daily, and would never be so permanently covered. See more
