Psychological Profile

What is the worst thing you have ever done?
“When I was with SAS, I had done a lot of things I’m not particularly proud of. Do you know that old joke “I would tell you, but I would have to kill you”? Well I probably would have to kill you, since it’s mostly still classified.”

What is the worst thing you can imagine yourself doing?
“That one’s easy; Torture.
I was taught that a clean kill is what separate us from the enemy. Torture doesn’t give you the answers that you want, and if it does, it’s in a way you didn’t want. Best avoided if at all possible.”

What is the worst thing you can imagine someone else doing?
“Don’t have to imagine, I’ve seen it. Slavery. Torture Chambers. Rape Camps. Industrialized cruelty on a large scale, perpetrated in the same mechanical way most of us would make a sandwich.”

What have you forgotten?
“That’s a right silly question. If I could tell you, it wouldn’t be something I had forgotten, now would it?

What is the most traumatic thing that has happened to you?
“I was shot 3 times and left for dead for two days in a wrecked flat in Kosovo. While I suffered fever and hallucinations a few rats decided it was time to have a nibble. If my mates hadn’t arrived just then the little bastards would have eaten my face.”
