Born James August Trawley, the man now known as Augustus Finch is a wild card. Working his way from the docks of the Mississippi river near Memphis to a man of prominence in Tunica; he was a swindler of the highest caliber. It was only when a bad gamble landed him on the wrong side of both the law and the mob did Mr. Finch come into existence. This pseudonym would purchase tickets to a European country booming from newly excavated oil reservoirs. With the only way out being up, the ambitious man had found the perfect crowd to rob blind of their hard earned cash, or at least he thought he had. The hand of fate proceeded to plunge the world in a time of ending, and now all of Finch's cunning and survivalist tendencies are being pushed to a dark ambition, come out on top of the new world that was shaping before him.
