Traveler the Haggard Wanderer

Somewhere in the crowd a black leather boot taps restlessly on the neutral colored carpet, leaving behind dried flakes of dirt which have, only faintly now, the rich smell of mud from deep mountain forests. Though his foot is restless, Traveler’s eyes stare unfocused at some distant point in time.
Prologue – The Bank Fight

A passing soldier, his rifle slung over his shoulder, flicks a cigarette butt into the foliage behind him, a butt which sparks as it bounces off the cheek of an unnoticed white man in the deep green shadow of a gigantic frond. Traveler’s worn face doesn’t so much as twitch as several motes of burning ash slowly die on his cheek.
Chapter Two – The Ice Man Cometh

Traveler’s first memories are of “the facility” where, as a child, he was trained, taught, tested, and experimented on until he was a teenager and old enough to formulate a plan to escape. A plan which took a wrong turn and resulted in Traveler causing the entire facility to explode and he only barely managing to teleport to safety. Haunted by his fatal actions, Traveler wandered across the global, never sleeping in the same place twice.
