Murdoch is a fairly striking man, not only is he tall and strong, but has red hair, strong features, and and Irish twang to his voice. Never cleanly shaven, and always dressing down to better blend in with crowds, Murdoch prefers his actions to speak over his appearance.
Murdoch is an Irraka through and through, he has however had trouble settling with a Tribe. Trying to become both an Iron-Master and Hunter in Darkness to no success, but found himself welcomed in to the ranks of the Blood-Talons readily. Although he is not eager to hunt other Werewolves he see’s the Pure and out of control Uratha as a huge threat, and believes that his military and criminal background make him a well suited for the role.
Current legitimate job: Seeking justice for an aggrieved family
Criminal Job: Collecting information on The Court, and their so called “Countess”
Murdoch is currently settled in Exeter after drifting from city to city for the last year. He has an apartment that doubles as an office for his Detective Agency, and although this is primarily a front for his criminal occupations, he does take legitimate jobs; the ones the Police won’t touch. This lets him keep his Oath to Luna, whilst being an efficient if not unorthodox Iron Master.
Murdoch is the youngest son of two Gangsters and was raised in a criminal household, primarily by his manipulative sister Debra Dalyin. The most naturally athletic of the Dalyin siblings, he easily secured a place in the Peridus criminal underworld. This was until he was arrested for a collection of criminal charges in 1954. Unknown to him, his brother Paul Dalyin betrayed him falsifying evidence, and bribing officials to make sure his brother would be out of the picture for good.
Sentenced to hang, Murdoch took the only lifeline he was offered; conscription. Joining the army and the dream of regaining his freedom and life.
Murdoch spent ten years in the SaS, and was deployed all over the world, most notably in: Korea, Egypt, and Malaysia. He has never spoken to anybody at length about his career, but he has many medals, and was granted his freedom due to his service to the Crown.
Murdoch had his first change during his time in Malaysia, it happened during a night time ambush deep in the rain forest. He was the only documented soldier to have survived, but as with his career he has never opened up about what really happened.
He soon returned to England and a civilian life, it was clear that everyone he left behind thought he was dead, so he never attempted to re-establish contact. Instead he toured the Country as a “problem solver” for hire, always staying freelance he never laid down roots, and never chose sides.
As of 1965 something is drawing him home, something he simply can’t ignore.
