The ability to kill without thought or remorse was bred into Rory from a very young age. Forced to live all alone by bigotry and ignorance he was isolated from the society of the day, with only a grandmother as support. He was born into the world with a German father and Scottish mother just after the First World War. His father's subsequent death meant he was forced to raise himself in a wild place high in the Scottish mountains, where just surviving was extremely difficult. It was just before the outbreak of World War II that he came in contact with other male company as troops were sent into the mountains for training. Attracted to their disciplines and comradeship Rory was drawn into their world. He gained their respect and trust and felt for the first time in his life, needed.
Once the conflict was over however he had felt lost. He had been unable to return to his farmer life and eventually he decided to enlist. With his raw talents for survival, including killing without regret and with his physical attributes for above the norm, he rose quickly into a person to be respected in this new life. Forming a close association with another recruit, they slowly became noted as something different and were soon promoted.
This bond grew through years of service with the SAS and close encounters with enemy foces in many parts of the world. It was extremely valuable deep in enemy jungle and fighting as a small team, harassing much larger forces in the post war military struggle in Burma. Only when he was tested to the limit in frightening circumstances, which resulted in the death of his friend, did Rory crack. He was pitted against horrendous physical odds in a cruel jungle, which brought him to the edge of death.
