Duncan Ataman-WIlliams | 28| Operations Instructor | TAKEN

FC: Chris Pine

Background:

Born as the first and only son of the villainous magical duo Malik Ataman and Ellayne Williams, his first four years of life were spent being spoiled by his mother while his father planned multiple robberies that lead to them being the most successful thieves of the decade (2000’s), and that of course put them on S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most wanted. 

When tracked down and ambushed, both managed to get away and ended up leaving their son behind to be taken in by the agents sent to take in his parents. Under the orders of Director Rick Stoner and with his parents nowhere to be found, Duncan was put into multiple classes and training courses under S.H.I.E.L.D.’s supervision, and was slowly molded into a proper agent. 

The entirety of his adolescence was spent between school work, combat and weaponry training, along with multiple apprenticeships under some of the best agents S.H.I.E.L.D. had to offer – including that of Natasha Romanoff, Bruno Kreah, Tony Masters, Logan Howlett, Clint Barton, and Joanie “Nails” Eaton. Though the years were very hard for the young agent in training, he did make it through and was welcomed as a full fledged S.H.I.E.L.D Agent at the ripe age of seventeen. Because of his age and his inexperience he was mainly an accessory to other agents on their assigned missions. He was also mainly used as programmer even before he given his badge and assisted in taking down multiple governments with a mixture of hacking, outing secrets, and shutting down entire countries. 

As the Agent matured, he was moved up through the secretive ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D. up to clearance level 10 along side his main mentor Natasha Romanoff, whom he was later chose to replace when the time came. He mainly did missions from behind a computer but did occasionally do field missions, which resulted in his capture for a solid four months by a terrorist group. Later found and rescued by a team sent in by Director Nick Fury and lead by agent Phil Coulson. After his forced recovery, he was immediately sent back into the field to continue his work for S.H.I.E.L.D., a much more hardened agent.

Personality: 

Much like his mentor, Natasha Romanoff, he’s very clever and very quick to solve problems, but also like his mentor he has rather questionable morals and is more than willing to do whatever it takes to get a job done. That quality often gets him compared to his parents which can set him off when mentioned, even after many years of therapy, he is triggered by such. He’s a social butterfly and a shamless flirt– liking to flatter men and women alike just because he can. He’s very aware of how attractive he is and is often told that he’s full of himself instead of being told he’s confident.

Negative & Positives :

  • Questionable morals & Somewhat vain 
  • Clever & Confident

Relationships: 

  • Natasha Romanoff (Mentor, Mother-figure), 
  • Clint Barton (Uncle-like)

Cassadee Barton | 19 | Assistant Communications Instructor | TAKEN

FC: Danielle Campbell 

Background: 

Cassadee Ann Barton was born on August 15th of 2013 in Cleveland, Ohio to Bernard Barton, also known as “Barney” and “Trickshot”, and an unknown woman who died while giving birth to her. For the first three years of her life, Cassadee traveled with her father around the country though she wasn’t sure what it was that she did all she knew is that she never felt loved by the man that was supposed to be her father. Maybe he didn’t, perhaps that was why when she was 4 years old she found herself in New York being dropped on the doorstep of her uncle, Clint, and aunt, Natasha, and watching her father’s back as he walked away. She was deeply hurt that he would just abandon her, having grown up with a parent and only half of a father, and over the years she hardened herself to not trust anyone for fear of being abandoned again. It took her two years before she fully trusted that her uncle wasn’t going to leave her too but somehow Clint broke through all of her walls and she found herself closer to her uncle than she had ever been with her father, coming to think of the older man as her father figure to whom she looked up to more than anything. Clint, with the help of his wife Natasha, trained Cassadee alongside their eldest son Maxim in hand to hand, archery and firearms from the age of 5.

When Cassadee was ten years old she came to realize that she wasn’t normal. She had felt odd her entire life and figured that it was because her father had abandoned her but little did she know that she was actually considered a mutant and had been showing her powers since she was 5 years old but was hypnotized by Natasha into forgetting that it ever occurred. One day while training with Clint, Maxim and Francis, she tried to get into a mindset that she needed to get away from them. She thought “If only I could get behind them to that I could take their legs out then maybe I’d have the upper hand.”. Evidently that was all it took because suddenly she found herself behind her uncle and cousin which shocked both her and Maxim. Clint, who had seen Cassadee exhibit her powers before in the past during a temper tantrum at a young age, decided it was time to tell his niece the truth. When they got home he had Natasha remove the hypnosis that she had put on Cassadee years before and explained to her that she was a mutant, possibly from her birth mother, and had the ability to teleport as well as go invisible. Cassadee was both shocked and appalled at this information and even grew angry at her uncle and aunt for keeping such information about herself from them and they got into an argument which lead Cassadee to teleporting herself to a place where there were others like her to get away.

Cassadee found herself at the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters talking to the headmaster, Charles Xavier. When Professor Xavier heard her story the first thing he did was call Clint and Natasha to see what they wanted to do to help the distraught ten year old. Not knowing how to help Cassadee control and learn her powers, Clint and Natasha agreed to let Xavier and his staff train her for a while. Cassadee stayed at the Xavier School until she was 17 years old before going home to her uncle and aunt. Though she was still upset with them, they managed to start over and have become closer since the incident. Clint and Natasha resumed training Cassadee and enrolled her into the SHIELD Academy when she expressed a desire to follow in their footsteps and become an agent for SHIELD. Upon graduation, Cassadee was appointed the code name “Wonder” due to her mysterious powers and works as a field agent for the search and rescue division of SHIELD, often helping other agents get in and out of sticky situations in order to help rescue a fallen agent or other targets.


Personality:

Cassadee is a very intelligent and kind girl who often tries to see the best in everyone. She can be sassy and flirty but she tends to keep people at arms length due to trust and abandonment issues stemming from growing up without a mother and being abandoned by her father. When she does let you in she is very caring, loyal, compassionate and understanding. She is a sweet girl but she can get sort of closed off at times.
