Who's Who: Desmond Miles

I recently borrowed my friends copy of Cubicle 7's Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space. I absolutely love it. I hope to have a game going soon (though whether that happens or not remains to be seen). I plan on picking up my own copy of DW:AITAS and a copy of Primeval (at the recommendation of Tim Brannan). 

As the muse inspires I will post stats of random characters I think would be interesting to throw in a session or two. Let's start out with Desmond Miles, protagonist of the Assassin's Creed game series.

Desmond Miles was born and raised in an Assassin enclave called "The Farm," which is based out of Black Hills, South Dakota on an alternate Earth.

Kidnapped by Absertgo Industries (a front for the oppressive Templars of his Earth), Desmond was forced to relive the past lives of his ancestors via the Animus (a machine that unlocked genetic memory). His time in the Animus has reawakened his ancestral Assassin talents and skills. He is also a master of parkour and mixes a mean "Shirley Templar," his version of a Shirely Temple with gin.
Diego Luna (my casting choice) 

Freed from the machine by undercover Assassins (and their allies), Desmond is on the run from Templars, seeking the knowledge the Templars tried to glean from his ancestors. He doesn't want to be an Assassin, but he knows he must stop the Templars.

Campaign Uses: 
More action oriented than a typical companion, Desmond would make a great re-occurring guest star during a season. He could even seek the Doctor out in order gain more knowledge of his past.
