Assignment Tracker 2.0/Stephen Canfield
After graduating from a military boarding school, Stephen moved to Los Angeles, where his sister was now an administrator in the Los Angeles County school system. Stephen began dating his future wife, Elizabeth. Their relationship was rocky due to Stephen's sensitivity and temper, but when Elizabeth became pregnant, they married. Stephen found work at a used car dealership and stabilized in his new life. The couple had two additional children.
However, Stephen's defensiveness at work led to friction with his co-workers and community. After losing his temper with a customer, Stephen was fired. Unable to find new work, Stephen's frustration grew, turning occasionally on his family. Their growing distance intensified his emotional distress. One day, Stephen was confronted by his neighbor about a broken lawnmower. During the course of the argument, Stephen manifested his ability to create a gravitational vacuum. His neighbor was never seen again. The resulting police investigation alerted the Company, and Agent Noah Bennet was tasked with extracting Stephen from police custody.
Despite two years of aggressive testing, the nature of Stephen's vortices remains a mystery. A recent shift in experimentation strategy to focus more on Stephen's control bio-mechanisms was interrupted by Stephen's escape from Level 5 and apparent self-absorption during a recovery attempt by Agents Bennet and Grey [sic]. Stephen's exact disposition remains unknown but he is presumed dead.
