Unity Black Tango
I am the notorious vigilante known as Hotshot! Or possibly the decorated Vanguard Sergeant John Cassidy. Or Rikti War veteran turned corporate security specialist David Garven. I might even be FBSA Special Investigator Jason Carrde. I am certainly not a member of the Malta Group in disguise, that's ridiculous. There is no such thing as the Malta Group.
Master Sergeant David Garven survived Afganistan and the Rikti War, first as a member of the 160th Special Operations Airborne Regiment, and then later as part of Vigilance, where he served with distinction under Colonel Duray. When Duray and his hardliners deserted in 2003, Garven remained with the loyal remnants of the unit. He was re-integrated into the SOCOM command structure and was sent right back into the brushfire wars that sprung up in the aftermath of the Rikti War.
When he mustered out of the army in 2009, he was quickly picked up by the Malta Group, where he served as a Special Qualifications Marksman in Operation: DEEP SIX, Operation: END RUN, and Task Force: ANTIGEN. While working with Director 4 as part of Task Force: ANTIGEN, Agent Garven (then known as ANTIGEN RED 4-4) developed a reputation for being able to get himself and his team out of impossible situations alive, no matter the opposition. He also developed a reputation for being particularly independent, even within the Malta Group's relatively loose command structure, routinely changing mission parameters and even objectives on his own without sanction from his handlers.
After a disastrous mission in 2015 which nearly got him killed, he and his handler blamed the other for the failure, and it looked like Garven's career in the Malta Group was at an end. At that point, however, he was poached by Director 6 to be the point man for a new project she had in mind in the Rogue Isles - Task Force: UNITY, where his keen survival instincts and independent nature would be an asset rather than a detriment.
Now codenamed Unity Black Tango, he has become the man that Task Force: UNITY turns to when they have an impossible mission. The Director encourages his independent streak, and even made him the Task Force's first recipient of the experimental new nanotech infusions, which has made him even more unstoppable than he was before.
Unity Black Tango is known for his distinctive Kentucky accent, his outrageous flirtations (especially with demonic and metahuman women) and his utter fearlessness.
