Slight build, some athleticism yet clearly has seen more of a desk than direct danger. Aged 43.
My middle name is pronounced “Sinjin”. My alias is Parsifal.
Ralston has had his fingers in all sorts of defence contracts and new technologies, as it relates to the defence of the realm. It was his “behind-the-scenes” work that enabled the restructuring of the Commonwealth to reflect more of his former, imperial nature. Since his involvement in shadowy operations of the realm, the United Kingdom has managed to regain some of its world influence, being seen as a more diplomatic and cultured response to the diminishing American involvement in international decisions.
When it comes to research, particularly defence research, Ralston knows about it.
In fact, it is this interest that has called him from behind his desk to investigate the new technological breakthrough in Sudbury – that, and the interest in Tetra activity.
Gifted in logistics, Ralston sees opportunities in an uncanny perspective. Preferring to play the long game and to uncover opportunities that would be far off and unseen by present standards, he disdains tactical operations. Though he is adept at them, he would rather that other “menials” muddy their hands than his. However, should the Realm call, he is a loyal son of Albion and he shall answer, if he must …
Possessing of an eidetic memory and skilled at languages, Ralston regards himself as one of the upper-classes whose responsibility it is to preserve the way for the lower ranks. He is a throwback in the way that he still believes in the concept of ‘noblesse oblige’ but he regards this as a sense of duty. He knows how to plan and prepare for a military operation and has a vast amount of military and scientific contacts who owe him a substantial amount of favours just waiting to be called in.
He enjoys fencing and has a fondness for sweets – he can often be found with a package of wine gums or Quality Street chocolates. He is up on local sports but doesn’t consider himself a supporter. He also has secret habit of watching science fiction television shows in his downtime, though he is embarrassed if anyone finds out about it. He dresses well and has several tailor shops on standby should he need clothing for long trips. He is extremely vain about his receding hairline. He does not succeed well at small-talk and is very socially awkward, particularly with the opposite sex.
Ralston grew up with the most privileged children in the land - including the current Prime Minister.
