Mosses was born in Uganda where his family fled to the united states to escape the worsening political climate at the time. In America he managed to work his way through Harvard medical school and emerged a doctor. He married fellow ugandan Sera. As a man he had a pacifist stance and so took to peace advocacy to help  the Acholiland in Northern Uganda which was ravaged by war. In 2002 he returned to his place of birth after giving a speech at the Kamapla Conference, wherein he urged all Africans to take back their country and to help Ugandans forced to live in the impoverished displacement camps.

His return to Uganda also brought with it nightmares of him killing everyone around him. After saving a girl who had been captured by Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). His repressed rage and anger and secondary personality kicked in and he riddled the bodies of the attackers with bullets despite them being kids. Disgusted and scared of what was lurking within him he took a jagged stone and carved into his face before callapsing.

Over the next few years he traveled all over Uganda fighting against the LRA and trying to save his people from oppression. In some instances he saved and helped many but in others he caused more harm. Throughout it all he was revealed to have been a sleeper agent who lost his way. This revelation did not stop him from continuing his struggle against the LRA. In the end he died before achieving his goals but became and enduring symbol t the people of Uganda. All who wanted to be free and those tired of the abuse and fleeing now knew that they could all make a stance no matter how small and take back their country!
