Scott was a member of the Delta Force Commandos, Special Forces within the United States Army, working to investigate possible weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. When he began questioning the investigation, he found himself dishonourable discharged when two pounds of opium were planted in his possession. He was considered so unorthodox in his methods, that even private military contractors would not hire him. He is first seen in Malaysia entering fighting contests for income. He is brought in by Section 20 to identify Latif, though Scott later admits he never actually saw him. Scott later becomes a member of Section 20.
