Watch out!


Yup, you knew this would be coming. Sam is cringing, Jimmy and Tom are rolling their eyes and Jerry can probably be found under some table, all knocked out by the idea that I will eventually have to directly address the public.

I'm Kyle. I'm the only person in this group who can legally drink. That means I'm 21 and over, just in case you're slow. Do I drink? No. Why? Because I throw up if I do. I'm sure you all wanted to know that. Hmmm... maybe Jerry does have a point about me talking in public.

Anywho... I like to talk weird - as in use words and constructions in such a manner that you can't tell if I'm sarcastic or not (hint: I usually am). How can I describe myself? Rude, selfish, sarcastic, crazy, super-strong and, unfortunately, damn good-looking. The only people who's feelings I care about are my mom and Sam. Okay, I'm lying - there's Kay, Angie and Jessie, too. Angie's a sweet kid and Jessie's my best friend, so of course I care about them. And I guess Tina. Oh, yeah, you're probably wondering who Tina is - she's Jerry's girlfriend - I've noticed he forgot to mention he has a girlfriend. Blew your cover, Jer'.

Back to me - I was raised by my Uncle Max - he's Mom's twin - since I was two. Why my parents abandoned me there, I don't really know, and I've given up on finding out - no use fighting Dad and making Mom cry. I came home right before I turned 20 - right in time for college - Max had to resort to some really nasty trickery to get me to go home. Because I was happy in Texas. And I had Kay.

Fortunately, I still have Kay - else, I'd be really pissed. Kay's my girlfriend, but I think you've already figured that one out by now. Dad hates her and Mom loves her - I don't know which I find more annoying. I wish they'd both just like her. No, I take that back. I wish Dad would just get off my back or at least tell me why he wants me to break up with her so bad. Ain't happening, I can tell you that much.

Other stuff about me: I love cars, motorcycles and driving them - I'm not into the actual mechanics of them, like Jimmy - I love music (was in a band at some point - play guitar), fighting (drives Jerry crazy), movies and junk food. My dislikes - people who lie, pink stuff and anyone who can be cruel to animals. Also, anyone who can say I'm giving this 120% with a straight face. In life, you need to relax, too.

See... this wasn't so bad. I just gave random information, in a polite manner and now I can just finish this up and go do something more fulfilling. Like beat someone up or make out with my girlfriend (hah! Had to add this one if for Jerry- I honestly don't care what anyone thinks)

I'll probably be back in a while with my latest prank or angry rant about who pissed me off.

(I obviously don't care enough to give a proper farewell, so imagine the one that suits you)

Hey everyone. I'm Jimmy, Jerry's twin brother. Tom already mentioned all the craziness we went through what with being orphans and finding our family and everything. It was hard, but I believe it made us better people in the end. We learned how to look after each other.

Now, stuff about me. Well, I'm 19, obviously and prepping for college. I've applied to MIT and hope to get in on full scholarship. I know that I'm theoretically rich now, but I still can't get used to the fact that I don't have to work for a living anymore.
I'm into anything that has to do with building. Engineering of any kind - electronics, robotics, cars ( I love cars) even buildings.

Let me think, what else can I say. I'm decent at fighting and shooting - I guess no one said this before, but I actually like target practice. I'm not as proficient at it as I could be. Kyle is much better, but I do think that, if he wasn't all super-strength, we'd be equally matched in fighting skills. It's a pleasure to spar with him, anyway.
I get along with all my brothers. I seem to have something in common with each of them. Kinda makes me feel as if I lack a personality of my own. *shrug*

Jessie's a big part of my life. Who's Jessie? My girlfriend. I know, I still can't believe it either. I'm not exactly the luckiest person when it come to love. My first love turned out to be a horrible woman. I don't even want to think about her. I ended up with a hangover and a permanent tattoo after that relationship. Not to mention a complete lack of trust in women and relationships.
When I tried to get over her, I hooked up with Alice. Who turned out to have replaced Jerry with me. And was a total psycho-bitch. Literally. I haven't seen her since we broke up, and I'm honestly grateful. She almost got us killed a couple of times.

And then came Jessie. She's like... sun after a storm, and so far, everything is going great between us. Dad doesn't like her, big surprise there, but Mom seems to really like her and my brothers love her. She's like a sister to them. I'm getting overly optimistic because of her.

*shakes head* Okay, enough day-dreaming. You might be surprised that I'm so calm even if I'm practically forced to talk. I don't overly enjoy this, but I've had worse. I've been shot at, stabbed, almost drowned a couple of times. I thought I'd lost my brothers, almost lost Jessie... and I'm aware that will keep happening as long as we work for the agency, as long as Snitch Gravel is hunting us down.

Anyway, this is it from me. Last one up for the small intro is Kyle. You'll have fun with him. I know I do.

See ya!

Keep it civil


I don't know why my brothers are making such a big fuss out of this. Yes, Sam is right. I'm personally not crazy about the exposure either. I'd much rather lead a calm, normal life than have everyone asking left and right about our personal lives. But that doesn't mean we can't be polite and civil about it.
And Tom's bragging is not helping. I don't think that what we are doing is "awesome". More like a matter of necessity. It's not like we can back out of it now. Even if we would, Snitch Gravel would still try to kill us.

My name is Jerry, I'm nineteen and a student in my first year of college. Initially, I was accepted at an Ivy League school. Due to the circumstances, I remained at Chicago State. I'm not sure how much I resent it. I mean, who doesn't long for a higher education? But, on the other hand, leaving home would have meant that I couldn't spend time with my new brothers, get to know them. So there are good things that came with my decisions.

And when I say new brothers, I mean all three of them. Sure, I've had a year to get to know Kyle, but I made a mess of that. I've only really known him as long as I've known Tom and Jimmy. I'm ashamed to say that I've spent the rest of my time misjudging and mistreating him. He didn't make it easy either. He still doesn't, but I do have a sense of humor, no matter what anyone else might imply, and I know he is only joking.

Finding out I have a twin brother has been quite baffling. It was a shock to me how our parents could have let that happen. But, I guess, when Snitch Gravel is involved, much remains unexplained. I wish we at least knew his real name. Snitch Gravel is just a front he puts up, trying to hide his real persona beneath. Either no one knows, or no one wants to tell us.

We've had this trouble before -  people seem to always want to keep us in the dark: the agency, Herrison (our team coordinator), even our own father. Sam asked him why Snitch Gravel wants to kill us, and the story he produced was less than satisfactory. Something along the lines of a high school grudge. Completely unlikely. Sam wasn't satisfied with the answer either and he doesn't think Dad will give us more than that, at least for now.

It's weird how I've come to trust Sam's judgment. He usually swings between little brother and division leader. And, may I say, he's the best leader we could hope for. I, personally, am not good. When we got separated once, I counted on Tom to make all the decisions. Not that I can't think for myself. I'm the boss around the house. I just don't do well under pressure. I'm the only one in the family who wants out of this madness.

But I've gone astray. I was supposed to tell you about me. I love cooking - and my family all agree that I'm pretty good at it. I also enjoyed cleaning and putting things in order - Kyle always says it makes me anal, but I can tell he's joking when he says that. I do wish he'd take my example and quit leaving pizza boxes around the house.
I play the violin and can dance a wide variety of society dances. You might expect my rebellious siblings to laugh at me about all this. Well, if you must know, Kyle dances even better than I do, and the others are jealous that they can't. Jimmy actually started learning. Of course, for all the wrong reasons (he thinks it's a great way to innocently grope Jessie).

I speak French and like to spend my free time reading or doing chemistry experiments - that will be my major anyway. I love science. Just so you know, I hate comic-books. I'm not a nerd. Just someone focused on their well up-bringing and education. And manners. Sometimes I wish my brothers would do the same. I don't expect much. Maybe just that Kyle and Jimmy don't produce all the cuss words they know to see who is better prepared in that domain. Needless to say, Kyle usually wins.

I think I've said enough for now. I can hear all the laughing this will produce.
Oh, yes, I've remembered. The odd lady with life-or-death powers over us has instructed me to announce that we are apparently..."taking questions."

Well, goodbye, then
