"The Man who Never Misses"


Floyd Lawton is known as the best marksman in the world to many and one of the top hired killers in the world.


Floyd Lawton grew up a youngest son of a wealthy Gothamite family. The public image of the family was one of success and luxury that hid the fact his father was a violent drunk and abusive husband, and that his mother would take out her frustrations on Floyd and his older brother Eddie. Eventually, Floyd was pushed by his mother into killing his father, providing him with a gun to do the deed. However, his nervousness caused him to flinchand the shot missed his father and hit Eddie between the eyes, killing him. Floyd made two promises to himself that night, never to miss again and to kill his father the next time he saw him.

Joining the military the moment he was old enough, Floyd was quickly recognized for his extreme talent in marksmanship and precision shooting. For a time he accomplished himself well, however all the talent in the world couldn't curb his dislike for the authority of rank and file or the restrictions of military employment.

At the age of 22 he left the military and began a career as a mercenary, but his skillset and further training he would come to seek inevitably drew the attention of a particular type of clientele. Swiftly he became known as one of the best assassins money could by; a man who never misses.

For the longest time, the killer known as 'Deadshot' reaped the rewards and the rush of his job, seeming to relish in the most difficult of contacts as if he himself had a deathwish and was almost disappointed when noone managed to stop him or put him down. It was a mindset and way of life that would change only with the chance encounter that lead to the birth of his daughter Zoe.

Try as he might, Floyd couldn't give up his ways and settle down for a normal life, but neither can he quite bring himself to sever all ties with his child, using his connections and payments to support Zoe with the best schools and opportunities. While he no longer actively seeks to get himself killed on a suicide mission, he remains stuck walking two paths; Floyd Lawton the father and Deadshot the killer.

Character Details

Deadshot is a consummate professional; as long as he has been paid to kill someone, he will always carry it out, without exceptions. He prefers to keep things clean and precise, but still maintains a confidence and outright enjoyment in even some of the most dangerous situations.
