Quote: What you will be privileged to witness will not be an interrogation- but an act of salesmanship. As silver-tongued and thieving as ever moved used cars, floated swampland or bibles. But what I am selling is a long prison term, to a client who has no genuine use for the product.

My name is Michael Westen. I used to be spy.

Edited: Meet the new, improved Michael Westen, now with infiltration skills he should rightly have.

For those curious: I swapped out Uncanny Dodge 1 for Career Advancement, then gave him the Disguise perk.

I also swapped out 7 ranks of Outdoorsman for 7 ranks of Influence.

He's less of a commando but more of an infiltrator.
