Wyvern, United States Marine Corps., S.C.O.R.P.I.O.


On a personal level Celtic Arrow is friendly and has a certain roguish charm about him, Once work is involved, or a mission has been laid before him, he can become like an entirely different person, quiet, and calculating, his focus narrowing down to the objective at hand, and the safety of his teammates.

The Compound Bow is constructed from composite materials and is designed to be collapsible, in order to be concealed and carried easily, the strings are made from high modulus polyethylene.

The Arrows base design is primarily a Titanium and carbon fiber, additional designs vary greatly based on the type of charge used in conjunction with the arrows.

The Glasses contain an embedded identification, friend or foe (IFF) threat analysis and targeting system, and experimental night vision these draw negligible power from the same power cell as the Optic camouflage

Character History


Born in Edinburgh, Scotland to Angus and Isabelle McConnell, Andrew grew up in Scotland until the age of 12, when his parents who at the time were renowned professors and physicists at the University of Edinburgh took Jobs at Stanford’s Linear Accelerator Center also known as SLAC. After moving to the United States, he and his family achieved dual citizenship. Eventually Andrew attended College at Stanford University with Majors in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and a minor in Chemistry, specifically Polymer chemistry (study of reactions, properties and structure to polymers).

During this time Andrew took up competitive archery while attending college, with a natural knack for calculating factors like trajectory, drop, and wind speeds in his head he received gold medals in state, national, and worldwide competitions. Andrew eventually Graduated in June, 1989 with Degrees, in Applied sciences (R&D), Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and a minor in Chemistry. It's been noted that Andrew may possess a genius level intellect but has never agreed to take an I.Q. test, as he deems them "Unimportant".

Almost immediately after graduation Andrew joined the United States Marine Corps and served with distinction for 10 years as a Scout Sniper, Serving in conflicts such as the Operation Just Cause in Panama, December 1989, the Operation Desert Storm, in August, 1990. Operation Restore Hope and the Battle of Mogadishu in Somalia 1992 and 1993. He also participated in Operation Allied Force during the Kosovo war in 1999 before being offered an early retirement at the rank of Captain from the Corps by the government to conduct special ops and teach archery techniques to recruits for the fledgling group known as Wyvern. A private security corporation secretly founded by Justin Sinclair, aka Manticore.

Service Record at a Glance



During his tenure with Wyvern, Andrew not only helped instruct new recruits on combat archery, but also was a part of the research and development for the specialized arrows that is widely used not only by himself but the vast majority of Wyvern command and Manticore himself. It has also been speculated that Andrew was at least one of the agents that conducted many black ops for the group, such as Assassination, Kidnapping, infiltration, and Intelligence Gathering in various parts of the Globe. He has admitted to having been in Iraq, Afghanistan, Columbia, Myanmar, South America and The Rogue Isles more than once though the only by commenting about the weather in that region of the world. Records of any operations he has participated in are sealed away and unavailable.

Andrew left Wyvern unofficially after the initial Rikti attacks and set up shop in Paragon City in order to keep a promise to a friend to protect his fiancé. This friend was killed in during an Operation in the middle east while investigating the actions of a major corporation that was suspected by Wyvern to be contributing to local political unrest, and possibly supporting known terrorist organizations. The Problem Celtic faced was this person was actively in hiding and did not want to be found. Eventually Succeeding in finding her, he has been watching over her and her daughter ever since.

Celtic Arrow still retains contacts within Wyvern and it is believed that he still works for them in a limited capacity.

Though no funds seem to have been transfered directly to his known bank accounts from the Wyvern agencies. Financial traces show that he receives funding for his activities from a multitude of legitimate sources such as patent licenses, bonds, and investments that he has made himself over the last 20 years. Though there are several listed "Donations" posted in these accounts from various anonymous sources that may indicate he is still on Wyverns payroll.

(Strategic Command Objective for Research, Protection + Interdictive Operations)

Intel shows that Celtic Arrow was recently approached by Jack Slayton During one of Celtic's operations outside of the U.S. Presumably with an offer to join S.C.O.R.P.I.O. While details on the meeting are scarce at best, surveillance footage was recently recovered shows that he is now likely involved with the organization. It is unknown in what capacity he will be working for them.
