  GILES HEFFERAN
Giles Hefferan was born in the last quarter of the 20th century in the American Midwest. Mr. Hefferan is an artist and adventurer. He is almost an expert at many things, generally tending towards, “maintaining a level of knowledge and proficiency above a casual understanding, yet not nearly authoritative.” Some areas of Mr. Hefferan’s research include The Occult, metaphysics, science and nature, and exotic weapons. At the core of Mr. Hefferan’s personal philosophy is the belief that all human beings should not only have the right to self-determination– but that they should make it a priority. Mr. Hefferan is in love with America but thinks that it still has some problems to sort out. Giles Hefferan currently lives happily in Philadelphia– The City of Brotherly Love. (currently on assignment in Oceania)
