Brad “Caliber” Haynes grew up in the rural southeastern United States in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. While he excelled in academics as a youth, he was always more interested in pursuing a life of service and excitement over quiet study. Haynes would grow up and take on various careers before finding his calling as a police detective. After years of serving in both State and Federal law enforcement Haynes was scouted by Technetic to become part of their new “High Risk” security team. After the “event” he became a founding member of the newly established Covert Response Infiltration Team.

Caliber has been highly trained in various martial arts having been trained by his father from a young age. Caliber is knowledgeable in Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, Hapkido, Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Balintawak, Kick Boxing, and Tae Kwon Do. Caliber is also skilled in using a wide variety of firearms and military equipment from both his police and paramilitary training. Being a police officer and detective has given Caliber a wide variety of skills ranging from interview and interrogation to crime scene processing.

Unlike the other members of C.R.I.T, Caliber possesses no connection to ethereal energy. Caliber is what’s known as a Null, being totally immune to the powers and ethereal energy but also being completely unable to use the energies of the plane to his benefit. Caliber’s very presence can cause ethereal based abilities and equipment to malfunction. In a new world filled with superhumans, Caliber must rely on his wits, skills and Null nature to help level the playing field.
