Biographical Details

Full Name
Albert ("Al") Bertoni.
17 February 1956; New York.
None named.
Criminal, assassin.
Often employed by the Anarchists.


Short, black hair and dark eyes. The Tracker has no distinguishing features and makes a point of not standing out in a crowd.

Height: 5'8" (172cm); Weight: 130lbs (59kg)


The Tracker came from an ordinary Italian-American family, growing up in a borough of New York. He was an undistinguished student, and with few other career prospects he joined the army on graduating high school in 1974.

The first time he fired a gun in training, something clicked in him and he realised that this was what he wanted to do with his life. His second realisation was that he hated taking orders. After a prolonged spate of insubordination and rule-breaking, he was discharged from the service, to his great satisfaction.

Taking a string of menial jobs, not all of them legal, to finance his firearm obsession, he swiftly became a world-class marksman.

In 1978 he spent some time as a member of the infamous mercenary group, the Bloodhawks, experiencing combat in Central America. At some point with the Bloodhawks he first used a crossbow on a mission that required a stealthy assassination, and found that if anything he preferred the weapon to firearms.

Throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s he worked solo, mainly in North America, acting as a hitman for anybody who could meet his price. He was often employed by the Anarchists, though strictly as a business arrangement, not because of any sympathy with their ideas.

Psychological Profile

The Tracker is a ruthless career criminal and killer, with no morality or empathy for his victims. He works strictly for money, but enjoys the challenge of a difficult job just as much as the reward.

Skills and Abilities

The Tracker is an expert marksman with all firearms, both rifles and handguns, and with the crossbow which became his "trademark" weapon. He is a fair hand-to-hand fighter. He is an expert hunter, tracker, and survivalist, equally at home in both wilderness and urban environments.


The Tracker will use any firearm required by a job, but his preferred weapon is a crossbow, with which he uses customised bolts designed to pierce bulletproof vests. At times he has used gimmicked bolts which explode or deliver a smoke or gas payload, but he by far prefers a straightforward killing bolt. He has also used a "semi-automatic" crossbow at times for superior firepower, but again this is not his preferred weapon.
