HARD DRIVE did linear equations in his head when he was seven, beat every video game on the market by the age of eight, and hacked his way into Defense Ministry computers of a major foreign power before the age of ten. At MIT, which he graduated from at eighteen, he held 27 patents and led the wrestling team to two regional championships. The modern infantryman is outfitted with a fighting system that is a complex integration of weapons, optics, communications, and sensors. What holds the system together and makes it work are microprocessors, and HARD DRIVE can maintain and repair them in the field. He is also qualified as a small arms armorer, communications specialist, and medic, which makes him capable of "fixing" any of the fighting system components, including the infantryman!
"Combat is the ultimate 'Boss Battle,' so I like to make sure I have plenty of 'Power-Ups' on hand in the form of carbs, energy bars, and soda!"
