Deacon had a rough childhood his father was a beat cop in the city, they never really had a good relationship, his father would beat him and his siblings, blamed them for their mom leaving.
Deacon is the oldest of 3 brothers Deacon, Dante, and Daniel. Deacons father Henry would come home drunk every night and do what he wanted have his way with his wife where ever and whenever he wanted, figured "I'm payin' to keep these lights on, I'll do what I want in my house" didnt matter if his kids were watching. Deacon and his brothers would do everything they could to be out of the house as long as they could.
Deacon never really was good at school, I mean he got by but really nah he didnt excel, what he was good at, was fighting, ever since junior high Deacon would pick fights with older kids this lead to the beatings from his father. You see Deacon was working his way up the food chain, and at the top was dear old dad. he was gunna put Henry in his place, and make sure he wont so much as look at his brothers anymore.
One day Deacon came home to see his youngest brother Daniel unconscious in a pool of his own blood on the floor, a broken beer bottle next to his head with a huge gash in his skull, his father was nowhere to be found. This sent Deacon into a frenzy he blacked out demolished the living room, he called an ambulance and left, the next thing he did changed his life and the lives of his brothers forever. He took his fathers 1961 Chevy Impala, and headed down to his fathers beat, he shifted the car into first and floored it, topping out at 97 MPH keeping his eyes on his mirrors, eventually he seen what he was waiting for, those fateful red n blue lights, it was his father, he knew he'd be alone today because he had been complaining all night about his partner taking the day off and how the station is understaffed. Deacon turned into a dead end ally jumped out of the car and waited. the cruiser slowly pulled up to the now damaged chev and got out, walking forward he noticed the car was his and he pulled his gun, cautiously walking up to the driver side door he never noticed the tackle from behind, the gun fell from Henry's hand and he fell to the ground. Deacon was now on top of Henry pinned down and pounding on his face in, after about 5 full min of pounding Henry's face was unidentifiable. Deacon stood up and grabbed the gun Mlock 15 pointed it toward Henry's head and said "Your no longer needed here" BANG Henry's brain matter splattered all over the sidewalk.
after leaving his brothers a note stating he'll see them again Deacon left and joined in with the Hells Angels, he'd quickly raise through the ranks and become on of their enforcers.
A mark had fled the country owing the angels a hefty sum of money, the information he got from their now paraplegic friend was that they were heading to South Zagoria, Deacon would charter a flight to South Zagoria, when he arrived the infection had already spread through out the land. but he had a job to do, no matter the cost.
He had 4 weeks to complete his job, then the charter comes back for him, if he doesn't make it to the pickup or his Mark isn't killed... Well Deacon O'Riley never existed. Its just as well a dead man stay in a dead land.
