Alex Turing

Sniper

Description:

Alex Turing
My name is Alex Turing. One of my many ancestors was Alan Turing the so called “Father of Computer science”. My parents always told me how proud I should be to be a descendent of such a great scientist and how we had to strive to live up to his legacy. To say that my parents were disappointed when I joined the military when I came of age instead of following them into science would be a massive understatement. I held my first pistol at age 5, shot my first crossbow and age 7 and my first sniper rifle at 10 and from the moment I picked up that 7 pound piece of steel and glass I was hooked. Screw beakers and Bunsen burners; give me gun oil and gunpowder. While I can’t calculate the 15th digit of Pi I can snipe a bandit between the eyes from 300 yards and in this world my skills are a tad more useful. I don’t get to fire Kate as often as I would like but when I do, heh the bad guys all run but they just die tired.
I grew up in a little town called Nowhere because if it wasn’t in the middle of nowhere well you could sure see it from here. There were about 150 of us, but the number always fluctuated. Partially because of the dangers of the wastes and partly because without the medical tech and knowhow of the pre-fall times people died much younger. These days you’d be luck to hit 60. I was out hunting one day and just took down a buck with my crossbow when a messenger from the town found me to tell that my parents caught some kind of flu and died. When I got back the town refused to let us in for fear that their protectors and hunters would be infected and in the end the town elders torched the whole village. Ever since that day I’ve been plagued with nightmares but the second I wake up I instantly forget the except for the minutest of details water, stars, a canyon or a bunch of building making a canyon I just don’t understand. So the rest of us wandered the wastes till the few of us that survived found the town of Allegheny and given our skills the accepted and after our quarantine period to make sure we weren’t carrying anything dangerous like the flu.
