BIO:In the small village of India, a small four year old boy and his twin sister are out playing, when suddenly a large van pulls up in front of the children and out come Indian Military Officials. With a quick check on an advanced piece of technology, the Indian Government member used abnormal speed and caught the young boy and threw him into the backseat of the van as his partner knocks out his sister and throws her into a ravine. The two mysterious government officials brought the young boy to an underground base. For the next ten years the small boy underwent torturous experiments and excruciating operations until that fateful day the experimentations and tests end. Out emerges a fourteen year old, bio-engineered android created with an immortal lifespan and abnormal strength. This android code named ‘Drake’ is charged with the lifelong mission of commanding a international coalition known as The Anime Secrets Agency based in the icy mountains of Laurentians Mountains in Canada. The Agency’s purpose…to promote anime/manga and games to the rest of the world and protect it from any harm.
