Sheldon "Dead Eye" Catley
Sheldon Catley is a 28, about 5 feet 11 tall, Brown hair and blue eyes. Newly recruited by the SAS and on his first mission with his unit. He is the Sniper/Scout of the unit, the one relied on for scouting ahead and picking off sentries. His weapon of choice is the Parker-Hale M88 sniper rifle because of its easy to reload chamber and low recoil. His Call sign is Dead Eye because of his skill with a sniper rifle, there is a rumour circulating around the barracks that he has never missed a shot.
His parents were killed in a terrorist attack by the IRA, he was raised by his aunt and uncle and when he discovered the truth about his parents he vowed to get revenge. Shortly after his 18th birthday he joined the military and was soon singled out because of his skill and recommended for a career in the SAS.
Seeing this as a way to avenge his parents he leaped at the chance. He is a dedicated Christian and believes in justice and that any soul can be saved no matter what they have done, he justifies his killing by saying that if he didn't kill these people, they would most likely inflict pain and suffering onto other people. He sees himself as a messenger from god, bringing the message that if you commit sin, you can be saved.
Wile he was growing up Sheldon excelled at most tasks put in front of him and was quickly dubbed the class "Nerd" wile in school. He was bullied quite badly throughout his time at school. Most of the time it was only verbal but sometimes he would sustain beatings because of it.
After one severe case of beatings, and after recovering in hospital. He vowed that he wouldn't let anyone hurt him or others in that way again. He started to take Tae-Kwon do lessons, and once again excelled at that. Passing all the grading with the highest mark in his class he quickly advanced to Black Belt. When the people who had put him in hospital before attempted to beat him again he broke one of there noses, the others arm and three ribs of another. The rest of the gang fled and Sheldon was soon arrested by the police for GBH. However the case was thrown out of court based on self defence charges and the gang of bullies were finned and given 100 hours of community service each.
When Sheldon was 16 and walking home from one of his Tae-kwon do lessons, he encountered two men attempting to rob a girl on the street. He ran over to help and realised that they were two of the guys from the gang who had beaten him. When they saw him they ran for there life's remembering the events of last year. Sheldon soon became quite close to the girl and they eventually started a relationship. Unfortunately she didn't want him to join the military when he was 18. And the resulting arguments tore there relationship apart. Sheldon uses the past events in his life to fuel himself on his missions and is generally quite a quiet person. After the events of Dead Eye Sheldon was promoted up the ranks very quickly and soon obtained the rank of Colonel. He was posted in many missions in every continent, mainly Asia and Africa.
Near the end of his career he was sent on an imperative mission to foil a ploy by a terrorist cell that planned to unleash a plague of Small Pox in London. He succeeded in stopping the terrorist threat but was contaminated with Small Pox and shortly died in hospital the following week. He died a hero; he was the Legend of Dead Eye. The sniper who never missed his mark.

Unluckily on the night he was pulling the graveyard shift a hooded figure attempted to rob him. But when he refused to hand over the money the hooded figure shot at the bullet proof glass booth he was in. the bullets didn't penetrate but the sparks they caused mixed with the fumes in the area caused a fire to start near the pumps.
