Private eye from 1920's
Snarky. Bull dog mentality. People person. Tough. Walks softly and carries a big stick.
Try always tell me it’s the piercing blue eyes, and not my genial manner that gets a mark talking. Cigarettes are not a habit of mine, they are a pleasure. Way things are going, these creatures will kill me before cancer finds me so I plan on wearing nice clothes and a good hat until that day comes, because I ain’t going out looking like a pauper.
Enemy. If I return to Chicago, 1925, Capone will kill me. This mystic crap scares me, so I’ll find a way to make peace and go back home.
Trent was a private detective in Chicago in 1925 when he tracked Al Capone to a dockside warehouse. Following an ambush, Capone and his inner circle performed a ritual to protect them, and to lay waste to their enemies. The creature that was summoned was fearsome.
The nine-foot reptile ran after Trent, tearing through walls as it pursued him. It was TimeWatch that appeared and took down the fire-breathing demon, and Trent left as a witness.
Killing Al Capone would change a significant section of history, so they couldn’t address the cultist, yet leaving Trent here, even if his memory were erased, would get Trent killed. Thus, Trent’s stint at TimeWatch began.
