Dorian Graves. Born and raised in the tumultuous seventies in New York City, the Bronx, he grew up in the streets but managed to get out of the ghetto once his foster parents agreed to let him join the US Marines at the age of 17. He took part in Operation Desert storm and was wounded (not grievously) in action. A few months before considering retirement, he accepted deployment in what he thought was going to be an "easy" warzone. Now, two weeks after the fact he seems to be stuck in the middle of nowhere, without backup, and perhaps, without hope.
