Before joining IBI as Head of Ops, Colonel Burton’s career in the WDF Marines was historic. Cartwright’s protege on both the battlefield and the arena spent decades leading soldiers with distinction.

Ms. Triggs is no stranger to the halls of power. As a Special Agent for The Bureau, Angelica’s career took her from hunting terrorists on Erikkson Station to gun runners in Grove and even to the halls of the Jericho Senate. Her investigative skills led her to be called the “Sherlock Holmes” of the Bureau. She joined IBI in 602 as a specialist.
After spending several years as a private merchant marine, Daniel joined the WDF Marine Corps and was literally the first over the wall of the Laurel Government Center during the invasion of Grove, earning a commendation for bravery. He has served with distinction on Grove until the uprising in 602.
