Background: Scott McGregor was born Steve Robinson in Ninewells Hospital, Dundee (Scotland) on 1 March 1966. Although brought up in the rough suburb of Whitfield his parents tried to instil come discipline into him and his brother (Sean, 24). Whilst this worked on his brother (who is now a member of Dundee’s CID) Scott soon found his way into many policeman’s notebooks, and at the age of 12 appeared before the local Children’s Panel for theft. He was let off with a warning, but this proved to be of no avail and at the age of 16 was in front of the local Sheriff’s Court for joy riding and the subsequent death of an 80 year old woman. Taking his disruptive background into consideration the Court gave him the choice of spending 4 years in Perth Prison or joining the British Army for a minimum of 6 years. Not being overly fond of the idea of prison, Scott decided to join the Army and so found himself heading to Perbright Barracks to become a Guardsman in the Scots Guards. During his training, the instructors noted that Scott had a remarkable aptitude for weapons, gaining marksmanship awards constantly. Although charged with minor offences Scott was soon promoted to Lance Corporal. As the end of his 6 years service came to a close, Scott noticed the distinct lack of employment outside the Army and decided to sign up for a further 3 years. It wasn’t long before he was promoted to Corporal. However, events conspired against him and after a particularly heavy night out drinking he was broke his sergeant’s nose in a fight. Charged with Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm his Court Martial punishment was simple: 6 months detention and discharged from the Army. After his 6 months “inside” Scott emerged into civilian life to find that his criminal record and lack of a formal education made finding a job impossible. He soon resorted to his criminal lifestyle and began stealing cars. He quickly came to the attention of the local organised crime syndicate (which unknown to him was run by a Web agent). He was offered a choice, work for them or be killed! Rather than die, Scott went to work for them and was soon, once again, proving his aptitude with weapons. After a couple of years Scott began to feel restricted and decided that it was time to move on. In order to improve his future, Scott stole £50,000 of Web money. Using the money he purchased a whole new identity and left Steve Robinson behind. Just to ensure that no-one knew of his new identity he killed the forger and burnt the building. Scott moved to New York and set up shop as a mercenary. At first work was hard to come by, but eventually he has managed to build up a reasonable reputation, mainly as an assassin.
