HistoryEdit

Wesley never knew his father and growing up he was always picked on and ridiculed. His girlfriend was cheating on him with his best friend. He was in a dead end job and not respected by his peers. All that changed the day Fox walked into his life. She revealed to him that his father had died and left him everything, even his name and purpose. Wesley's father was "The Killer," a man so feared that no on in the Fraternity knew who had the to stones to actually take him out, nor were they claiming the kill.

After thinking it over Wesley takes up his father's place (after proving he has the potential to do so) and begins training to become the next Killer. A shake up in the hierarchy of the Fraternity puts Fox and Wesley on the hit list and the duo must do everything to take out the opposition.

In the end it is revealed that the events were orchestrated by Wesley's father himself (having faked his death) to get Wesley to be the man he is today. He knows that he is getting old and that eventually someone would manage to take him out. He decided that if he was going to die it would be on his terms. Wesley kills his father and he and Fox take over the Fraternity.
