'Retired' Economic Hit Man
Inspirations: Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confession ... ic_Hit_Man), Michael Westen from Burn Notice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Westen), Amerika from Rammstein (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WrrpN8sSgqA) and numerous espionage movies.
Basic background story: You've heard the story a dozen times, young man goes into the intelligence field to serve the American way, God and Coca Cola. Served as an 'economic adviser' to several developing countries, concentrating what little money was available into a few hands, putting everyone else further into debt and making them even more independent upon First World nations, and America in particular. Very good a his job until a classic story of love, betrayal and revenge ending in his 'retirement' from the service. He has recently come back to the US and is applying his skills as a freelancer as well as trying to make the world a better place.
General build: Very skilled at trade craft, some passing knowledge of small arts, and a very good head for social and economic hacking- knowing just the levers to push to get the results that he wants. Might have some psychic/supercharismatic abilities.
