- Brigadier General Alexander S. Kane, United States Army
National Security Advisor to the President for Psychological
- Caucasian Male; DOB 07 AUG 1937; closely
cropped gray hair, hazel eyes.
Wears thin metal rimmed glasses.
- Alexander Kane was born to an Army family
in Virginia, his father was a intelligence officer instrumental
in the forming of the OSS and Delta Green. He grew up on the
homefront of World War Two and soon became one of the world's
most brilliant men. Possessed of an eidetic memory, he taught
himself how to speak Korean in three weeks with his father's
Korean English Dictionaries at the tender age of thirteen. He
graduated high school a year later. By the time he got his bachelor's
in psychology by the age of eighteen, Alexander spoke twelve
languages with varying degrees of fluency, and had memorized
entire libraries of complex scientific and technical information.
- He was more than ready for West Point.
- After becoming a commissioned officer in
the United States Army, he went on to graduate medical school
and acheived a doctorate in Psychology before the age of 30.
Many of his early clinical trials evolved into MK ULTRA anti-brainwashing
- During his MK ULTRA experimentation in the
1950's he encountered a test subject with extraordinary paranormal
abilities and dangerous psychotic tendencies. The subsequent
horrific events were dealt with by a Delta Green operation led
by Reginald Fairfield. Thus it was that Captain Alex Kane's initiation
into the world of supernatural horror began with the (officially)
unsolved SOTHOTH murders.
- In 1970, Major Kane was one of forty senior
Delta Green officials who decided to illegally continue the work
of Delta Green. He was involved in psychological warfare operations
in Eastern Europe at the time, and was deeply concerned with
soviet psychotronic and occult experimentation. On more than
one occasion, he has served Delta Green as a "de-programmer"
to counteract cult brainwashing, not always successfully. After
the Delta Green reorganization, Colonel Kane was instrumental
in shutting down the DIA's remote viewing Project STARGATE in
- Today, General Kane works with the Department
of Homeland Security and the National Security Council commanding
a clandestine group which conducts foreign and domestic operations
against terrorists with occult leanings. Kane's long years fighting
the mythos have forged him into a ruthless manipulator. Although
his psychological skill enables him to appear as a reassuring,
comforting and avuncular figure, he has no problem whatsoever
sacrificing good men and women to achieve some minor victory
against his horrific vision of Armageddon. He is a spook in every
sense of the word, and his delicately planned operations are
very much a spookshow.
- It is suspected that General Kane may have
obtained MAJIC Clearance at some point during the 1980's. His
seemingly inevitable promotion to Major General may well involve
overseeing the remnants of the OUTLOOK Group and Project RICOCHET
after Dr. Yrjo's death or retirement. What impact this might
have on Delta Green operations remains to be seen.
