abilities began to emerge.
to Chicago in 2059, he brought down one of the toughest crime syndicates in the
U.S., demonstrating superb detective skills and excellent leadership
qualities. Rising quickly through the
WGPC ranks, in 2065 Fraser was approached by the Spectrum selection committee
and given the opportunity of joining their fledgling organisation.
