Tom Nipple
Head of New Agents

Tom was born in a small town of Green Burg, North Carolina. His life was tuff, his father was a drunk and his mother had died sometime after his younger brother was born. Tom took it upon himself to protect his younger brother Matt. Matt was six years younger then Tom. Their father worked as a construction worker in a town near by. He was almost never around, and when he was he would be drunk. They lived in a trailer park just outside of Green Burg. His father would beat Tom almost every night, and Tom would take it. At age 14 is when Tom found out about his Psionic powers. Tom returned home from a friend's house to find his father beating Matt. When Tom entered his father stopped hitting Matt, and Matt just slumped to the floor. Tom's father had beaten the eight-year-old to death. Tom became so full of rage, that he wanted was his father dead. As Tom screamed a blast of psychic power erupted from him and hit his father, taking him to the ground. Tom just couldn't stop; filled with the rage of years of abuse and the pain of seeing the only person he really loved and cared about dead at his father's feet. Tom finally stopped when there was little more then a bloody red pulp left of his father. After he calmed down, he realized what he had done, and began to run, he didn't stop running until it became dark. At this point he had actually traveled miles from home.

He spent many years on the streets training himself in the use of his powers. He would use his powers to see into the minds of people and use what he found to steal. At about age twenty he found an old man who ran a strange cult shop. When Tom tried to use his powers on the man to rob him, he got quite a shock when the man fought back with his own powers. The two began to talk and each looked into the minds of the other. The two came to become close friends. Tom worked in his shop, and the man helped Tom to develop his powers far more then he had ever suspected. The man introduced Tom to many strange people and he would participate in many strange rituals. He became part of a cult, and was given the name Seer and the tattoo over his left eye as a mark of enlightenment. By age twenty-four he was an active member of this cult, trying to unlock the secrets of Psychic powers. S.N.A.I.L. became aware of this cult and sent several teams into to investigate. Jim Cox was one of the squad leaders at the time. When S.N.A.I.L. raided the cult meeting, many people where killed, but Tom managed to save many of them. Tom used his powers to avid many of the agents, as well as to peer into their minds, until he came to Jim. Tom had never encountered anyone like Jim before, he didn't understand why he couldn't see into his mind, or use his powers on him. Jim saw a great use in Tom. Tom became a member of S.N.A.I.L.

Tom's main job at S.N.A.I.L. was as a member of a Gamma team, sense he seemed to have a great ability to protect people. When Jim finally became the head of S.N.A.I.L. many years later, he decided that Tom would make a much better use as the Head of New Agents. Tom excepted his new position, and uses it to his advantage. He enjoys the perks and the power in which his position gives him. He never had very much as a child, or when he was growing up, but now he can have anything he needs just by asking for it. Tom is still suffering from nightmares of his brother's death. He will wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. He will never tell anyone of what he did or what happened to him in his past. He is very loyal to S.N.A.I.L., but doesn't care much for Jim. He respects him as a leader, but still doesn't understand him as a person.
