57 Years old, grey hair & semi-cultivated beard. Sturdily built, but with a bit of a beer belly. My uniform is never quite in tip top shape (shirt partly untucked, stain on pants, frayed ranger hat).
Montana is my heart and my home. It's all I had left since my wife Margaret died five years ago and my daughter Grace fled the pain of her death (2029). A few days ago (2034-02-22) I got a lead from Jenkins on her whereabouts: up in Canada. I dropped everything to follow the (very cold) trail. My little girl might hate me, but I can't rest without doing whatever I can to help her.
Served 15yrs in the US Marines. Volunteered at 18. Saw combat during several tours in Afghanistan. Made a close bond with Abram Jenkins, whom I kind of took under my wing at first, but then we became like brothers.
When my wife was alive having a drink wasn't a problem. When she died I lost control and went straight into the maelstrom. Grace essentially lost both of us, and after she realized that she couldn't help me, she left. I don't know what brought me back (I guess I found that 'bottom' they speak of), but I managed to get up from the dark place. But Grace was long gone. I managed to get my job back, and eke out a semblance of a living, but I need to find my daughter. I'll never give up on her. I need to make sure she's OK. I need to tell her how sorry I am.

Sutton can cause drastic increases in the heat energy of the air around him by increasing the kinetic energy of the molecules and directing them away from himself. This does raise the temperature quite a bit, but the majority of the effect is in the amount of energy in the air.
Details of his powers are listed in the 'Spells and Powers' section of this sheet.
Among the initial hires are several senior specialists:
- Salt: Sarcastic, Unflappable, No Questions Asked Delivery Service
- Rod: The Bigger The Machine The Better I Wear It
