Alexandria is the perfect city. Clean, friendly, and extremely prosperous. This city is, was, and always will be the pinnacle of achievement. But things are changing in Alexandria, street by street, hour by hour, the city is being sucked into darkness. Entire blocks are succumbing to poverty, to disrepair, and no one will step up to fix it..

Full Name: Andrew Wyatt Saunders
Power: Teleportation; ability to move from one location to the other without occupying space in between. Limited to places he knows well and is in his line of sight.
Occupation: Full time Guild member
WHERE'S THE STREET WISE HERCULES
to fight the rising odds
Appearance: A man of six feet at least, Drew has short but slightly tussled dark brown hair that's usually left as it is without any major styling. He has hazel green eyes that are sometimes hidden behind his glasses--the one he uses very rarely and only for reading. Other than that, he usually tries avoiding even admitting he has less than perfect eyesight.
He likes dressing in khakis and jeans matched with plain t-shirts and rarely anything else unless it's required of him.
Defining marks: ~
Costume: Black pants, maroon t-shirt, a long black trench-coat, and a pair of dark goggles.
Play By: Lee Pace
I CAN'T DO THIS ALL ON MY OWN
no I know I'm no Superman
Personality: As typical Andrew Saunders, he tends to lack confidence and second guesses most of his decisions. He tends to ramble on when nervous and talks fast to try and cover it up.
However, when he's his alter persona, Shift, Drew knows what he needs done and who he really is. His a man of no nonsense when he's Shift and will do anything to get what needs to be done done. To the villains, he rarely is a man of second chances.
Still, both Drew and Shift share the same principles of good moral especially on honour and justice.
- Strong morales
- Clear headed
- Lack of confidence (as Drew)
- Peanut butter
- Triple berry pie
- Fighting Evil
- Government service
- Monkey suits
- Reliving 9/11
- Not knowing what to do

History: Drew was initially born and raised in Alexandria and during that time, he grew up as any normal teen would except for a few hiccups here and there. In his teen years, there were times where he dreamt he was at school or at the mall, and then suddenly he'd wake back home in bed usually late for something. Eventually, he grew out of his deep dreams and began leading a normal life once again. Later on, he moved to San Francisco where he was accepted into Stanford University studying for a degree in Business. During his years in Stanford he met law student Sharon and they both eventually became an item. Graduating together they then scored internships in New York where Drew was in a brokerage house and Sharon naturally, was at a law firm. All seemed wonderful and perfect until that fateful day that changed the whole world.
Drew remembered he was typing out a report when he heard a commotion and looked up to see his colleagues looking and pointing at the windows. When he saw what they saw, his heart froze and before anyone had a chance to scream, the plane came crashing into their office.
When Drew opened his eyes, he was back in his bed again. At first he thought he had been dreaming until he realised he was in his working clothes, the car wasn't in the driveway and Sharon wasn't picking up her phone. Turning on the TV, he realised what he dreamt was real.
On September 11 2000, the twin towers were attacked and brought down to the ground, killing more than two thousand people. He was nearly one of them but Sharon wasn't as lucky.
While still mourning over Sharon's death, Drew was confused, filled with guilt, and angry as to how he escaped the disaster. The question of how did he end up back home in a blink of an eye was constantly on his mind. Eventually, he discovered that the answer was as simple as it was weird: he had the ability to teleport from one place to another in a split second. At first, Drew had no idea what to do but he began gaining control over his ability and in fact learnt to use it to his advantage and vowed it would be for the betterment of mankind.
He chose to move back to Alexandria just as his older brother Allen was deployed to Iraq and Andrew was discovered and recruited in by Six. Instead of living a double life, Drew decided to be a full time Guild member and mastering close combat skills that would be an added advantage to his power.
