Slade was born the second child of teenage sweethearts. His old fashioned, maternal grandparents divided the family leading Slade’s family into a weaved web of confusion and agony. It was six years that Slade hated his mum before finding out she wasn’t biologically his mother at all, though she did abandon him for life with her real son, Josh. He found this out during the early year of the virus while reading secrets his father had stashed away in their attic. Slade had always been with his true mother and his sister was actually his sister, unlike the little brother he’d resented for taking away who he thought truly was his mum. Why anybody ever needed to lie was crazy to him, but the virus made sure nobody could answer the why. His sister had been arrested and taken away for trying to get answers about the virus and after his parents were dead and gone there was no one left to give answers.
Alone in the world, Slade left his little town of white picket fences and finally got to adventure like he always wanted.
[details=Keep Reading]First stop was finding the little brother he never knew. And he took care of the little guy for awhile, trying to regain a sense of family til slavers separated them. In trying to locate Josh, Slade found himself the mark of bounty hunters.
They captured him and kept him in a cave til his bounty was paid. Imagine his relief when he saw his new slaver, his own sister. She was alive and well and had put a bounty on him as it was the safest way for her to locate him in the grit that became the City.
They stuck together wandering small town to small town from time to time away from the madness of big cities until she contracted the virus. He didn’t know what to do but watch yet another member of his family perish. He thought it was only a matter of time before he and all of humanity were finally exterminated like their parents. That was until he heard about a City with a known cure for the virus. And then he stumbled upon his brother there who was a deranged tribe leader.
The rest is current history. He based himself in Liberty, became an accidental hero, met Ram, Ruby, Ebony, and the Mall Rats, and tried to save Mega from himself. Then he found himself with no motorbike and trapped on a boat that landed he and the others on an island in the middle of god knows where.
He’s still looking out for number one, but sometimes that means looking out for others around you too.[/details]
