Appearance and CharacterEdit
Joe Ledger has bright blue eyes and sandy brown hair. He is a caring person and quick to help anyone in need, but also a world class smart-ass with a quick wit. He knows a little bit of a lot of languages, including Arabic and Farsi. He is an expert in hand to hand combat, and attacks without hesitation or pause. He is psychologically disturbed, having different personalities because of a specific traumatic event as a teenager, but is able to control them most of the time and even use them to his advantage.
As a young teen, Joe and his girlfriend Helen were attacked by older teens. He was nearly beaten to death and forced to watch as they took turns raping his girlfriend. The traumatizing event broke him psychologically, more so when Helen committed suicide, splitting his personality into three different facets he has come to identify over the years through therapy as the Cop, the Warrior, and the Modern Man.
He has channeled his rage through studying martial arts, joined the army and left with an honorary discharge, and then eventually becoming a policeman with the Baltimore Police Department, closing a higher than average number of cases and receiving early promotions. He has a glowing respect from his peers and supervisors. His lack of hesitation in dire situations is the reason Mr. Church sees leadership potential in him with the DMS.
