Octavio has always been intrigue by the new communication methods that have been slowly changing the world specifically the radio and the telegraph. Once Octavio had finished his schooling his intentions were to work as a radio announcer. However, Civil War broke out in Spain and his brother Juan Carlos urged him to join the Republican faction alongside him and protect the republic (July 1936). Foolishly Octavio joined and spent 2 years as a communications expert and luckily managed to break the code that was used between the Nationalist/Franciscan faction and their allies, Nazi Germany. Octavio’s family was killed in a Nazi air raid, his Platoon Leader was killed in combat, and his platoon kept getting pushed back. Juan Carlos and Octavio saw how the war was progressing (May 1938) and decided it was the time to leave before they were taken prisoner.

Phase One: Your Adventure-
Octavio and Juan Carlos boarded a refugee ship leaving from Barcelona and headed towards France. For the next year the two brothers traveled from port to port working various odd jobs. One day while in a rundown watering hole in some obscure port off of the Black Sea, Octavio due to heavy drinking, let it slip that he had broken the Nazi code. That same night in a dark alley Juan Carlos was kidnapped misinterpreted for Octavio and taken to an abandoned Ship Mill where he was beaten and tortured. Octavio learned of this news the following morning and after leaving a trail of black eyes, broken kneecaps, and greased palms he found Juan Carlos’ mutilated corpse that had been hung off a beam and a burned swastika on his chest. Octavio took his brother down and waited for the men to return and when they did he executed his revenge. While burying his brother Octavio was approached by an MI-6 agent and left for England.
