Description: Taller than average, and a bit on the burly side. While on the job, he wears a gray trench coat, gray fedora, dark red shirt and matching pants, as well as a gray domino mask. He has 5’o clock shadow, and short hair.

History: Gregory Goode was a good kid. He was active, and he always got good grades in school, and read various kinds of books. His favorite books were adventure and mystery, and in particular, he was always fascinated with private eyes. Wanting to become one himself, he’d hone his skills, looking into law and training himself to always be on the lookout.

On October 19, 2000, Gregory opened a private eye business of his own. He didn't get much business at first, and figured that he needed to focus on something. He decided to focus on superpowered crimes, and take on supers as clients, and to help fit the specialization, as well as attract customers who wanted a certain degree of confidentiality, and took on the name "Tracer" while on the job. This also afforded him a degree of protection against revenge. He'll take on pretty much any client, unless they're clearly on the wrong side of the law, and will preform almost any request that his clients ask of him.

Gregory’s happiest moment was when he married Elise Irvine, a prosecutor, on August 12, 2002. They had met 6 months earlier, late at night in a coffee shop. Elise was working late on a case, and Gregory, in regular clothes, was taking a well-earned break, after finishing an investigation. The coffee shop was oddly busy that night, and lacking an empty seat or booth, Elise sat down in the same one Gregory was in. The two got to chatting, and fell in love instantly.

On March 9, 2005, Elise was killed in their own home, while Gregory was out investigating some stolen jewelry. Elise was working on a case, where if successful, would have dealt a large blow to the Mafia by taking out key figures of the Mafia’s laundering, crippling their cash flow in the process. The killer was never caught, but Gregory has always assumed it was the Mafia, for obvious reasons, and takes it upon himself to put a crimp in their organization when possible.

Gregory still runs his private eye business, and works diligently as per the client’s requests. However, he spends his available time tracking down leads, thwarting crimes in progress, trying to bring down the Mafia, and track down Elise’s killer. Also, the police have become frequent clients. Gregory has a reputation for being effective, and when the police are stretched too thin, or need something kept on the DL, they call him, often to track down (and capture, if he has a chance), or gather intel on various supers.

Personality & Motivation: A gruff guy, fairly cynical. Tends to be at least a little suspicious of someone he meets for the first time, but is a good friend to have. He feels the loss of his wife to this day, crying to himself every so often, although he’d never admit this to anyone. He’s motivated by a desire for revenge on the Mafia for his wife, a desire to put criminals behind bars so that what happened to him doesn’t happen to someone else, and, when on a job, the client’s wishes and best interests.

Powers & Tactics: No powers. Tries to extract information when possible, and in combat, will focus on targets in the following order: Mafia members > weaker opponents > stronger opponents. Uses knife in close combat, heavy pistol when further away.

I've got no beef with anything on the sheet. Background is...well, about what a noir gumshoe SHOULD have. ;)

One thing that strikes me, though, is wondering how much this is a superhero? One idea: maybe Gregory decides that the safest way to retaliate against the Mob is to do so in disguise? Put a domino mask on him and he's our Spirit. Up his Stealth or throw on some ranks in Concealment and he's the Shadow.
