Soon he found out that his father was also a member and part of this secret mission. His journey moves from one situation to another and finally comes in contact with a field agent who guides him to his assignment, as all are expected to follow, after intense training with arms and self-defense. He was assigned to MISSION BLACKOUT.

He finally managed to stop with the help of his companion Kate who he meets during his training. During the mission Kate was shot and wounded but survives.
