Imposing and powerful, CHECKPOINT is the only man to ever best MAJOR BARRAGE on a wrestling mat. Back in college they attended rival schools, and a mutual respect/resentment relationship was born. It was rumored that MAJOR BARRAGE blew out a knee during a wrestling match with CHECKPOINT, forcing MAJOR BARRAGE to miss the Olympic tryouts. Needless to say, when these two behemoths pass each other in the halls, you can cut the tension with a chainsaw. It's a good thing that CHECKPOINT is an excellent carpenter because he spends most of his downtime fixing the walls that he and MAJOR BARRAGE bust up when their egos collide.
"When the big man says your perimeter's secure, you can bet there won't be any nasty surprises showing up in the doorway behind you."
