Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts and the youngest of eight boys from the south side of Boston, the Scout is a fast-running scrapper with a baseball bat and a snarky "in-your-face" attitude who learned how to solve problems with his fists. With seven older brothers on his side, fights tended to end before the runt of the litter could maneuver into punching distance. So the Scout trained himself to run. He ran everywhere, all the time, until he could beat his pack of mad dog siblings to the fray.

Intelligence: Growing up in the rough streets of Boston, Scout was getting into street fights at an early age, having earned his running ability through his efforts to get there first. Now he is considered one of the nine most dangerous mercenaries in the world, being an expert at flanking, evasion, and being incredibly annoying to friend and foe alike. Nevertheless, he is indeed a force of nature on the battlefield, and is able to keep up with all but the most deadly of combatants in sustained firefights. He was also clever enough once to trick the Spy by taking advantage of his sentiments for his mother.
Weaknesses: Scout is academically inept and incredibly impulsive, which is exacerbated by his puffed-up self-esteem. All of these things have gotten him into trouble on numerous occasions. He is also insecure about his feelings for Ms. Pauling and his attempts to impress her can distract him from time to time.
- Home Run: The Scout points to the sky, winds up, and swings the bat, instantly killing any enemy too slow, unaware, or simply unfortunate enough to be in range.
