Blake grew up in a decent family, being the second child out of three. His family was initially poor, though this changed slightly once their father joined the military. After several wars, Blake’s father was changed, causing him to become a pastor after retiring from the service. Blake’s sisters would go on to college while Blake himself joined the military at the age of 18. He saw many things, various places, a number of different cultures and people. He would eventually leave the military and take up a job in law enforcement. This allowed him to gaze behind the city’s façade of peace and justice and recounted seeing similar things on a grander scale during his service in the military. Money instead of honor and justice ruled those who should be protecting them. Cops wasted time on arresting the poor and homeless rather going after the corrupt, after the gangs and other filth that polluted the city.
