Marshall Gregory Prime
Marshall Gregory Prime was born on September 18th 1959 in Gorenwille City. He was the only child of George Y. Prime and Anges J. Prime. Not long after his birth his father has disappeared, leaving his mother to take care of him. Low wages and a rising cost of living forced him and his mother into poverty. The house they were living in was seized by bank as his mother was unable to pay mortage. They had to move to Harrison Quater – at that time ghetto in Gorenwille. There they endured the worst living conditions in the city, facing crime and injustice that was often ignored by the authorities.
While living in Harrison Quater young Marshall started to go to FDR Elementary School. In the school he got involved into fight with the son of local mafia enforcer Henry A. Smith – James M. Smith. Because many of the teachers in the school were living in the same neighborhood the punished young Marshall without even consulting it with Henry A. Smith. After this incident Marshall started to hate the school and wanted to young Smith to face justice. He understood that further escalation could lead to another punishments but from this point on he always stood up for bullied and weaker individuals. This incident would later form his sense of justice and would influence his later career choice. After he finished elementary school Marshall knew what he wanted to do next. He wanted to became policeman so he can fight againts people like James M. Smith and his father. He then went to Brown Law Enforcement High School in the city of Gorenwille. Thanks to his excelent studying results he met Gorenwille police chief who offered him part-time job at police department. (GPD) With this he was able to pay for some of his and his mother expenses and eventually they were able to move to Modoc Alley – middle class part of the city. In the high school he met his best friend and future partner – Benjamin K. Black.
After Marshall finished Brown Law Enforcement High School he started to work in Gorenwille Police Department as a patrolman. His given partner – Stephen B. Maldonado worked with Marshall about half a year before Marshall was capable enough to be a full member of the Gorenwille police unit and after that, he went to retirement. After that Marshall was happy to see that his new partner was his best friend and schoolmate from high school – Benjamin. After a few months of patrolling in downtown two police officers were killed in Harrison Quater – Marshall’s birthplace as a result of gang violence. Once again Marshall returned to there, now as a man with authority to serve justice. One day Marshall and Benjamin responded to an emergency called out by a woman who claimed to be raped by drug gang members. When they arrived they found the woman dead but found a connection to a nearby warehouse. There they and several other police officers got into a fight with gang members. After examining the place they found out that this was a warehouse of the biggest drug gang in the city, run by non-other than James M. Smith. They found enough evidence in that warehouse that helped get the leader to the jail and shut their entire operation. After this marvelous success, Marshall and Benjamin became detectives in Gorenwille Police Department.
Benjamin K. Black
Benjamin was born in Santa Monica to Janice D. Black and James B. Black in 1962. His father was a prominent banker in Los Angeles. In 1968, when Benjamin was 6 years old, his father was promoted to the role of operations manager for his bank’s branch in The City of Gorenwille, where his family immediately relocated to from Santa Monica. They lived in the city’s downtown sector in an apartment complex that catered to higher middle class. Living in good circles and having his future secured, young Benjamin often looked for excitement by going on adventures throughout the city streets.
While living in downtown Benjamin was sent to Carter’s Elementary School. He was one of the most intelligent children in the whole school but it wasn’t reflected in his academic performance. He was lazy and gave little attention to his subjects or his teachers. He was far more interested in looking for fights, gathering a group of students that adored him and going to war against his enemies in the schoolyard. This led to him nearly being kicked out of school but, because of his father’s influence, was given one more chance. He took it and successfully finished his education without being expelled.
After high school he wanted to continue pursing adventure so he enrolled to study at Brown Law Enforcement School. There he met Marshall G. Prime his future partner and best friend. At this time both of them regularly went to the Brannigan’s pub after classes and it became their favorite bar. There they also became friends with the owner – Patrick Brannigan. After arresting James M. Smith, Marshall and Benjamin became detectives and continued to work together as partners.
Benjamin is extrovert compared to Marshall, a womanizer who enjoyed a stiff drink and rowdy parties.
