Closer 67 died on his very first mission as a “closer” – an agent who ties up loose ends covertly, often involving espionage and assassinations- for a secret United States Intelligence agency run by Frank Decker. Lucky for him he was restored to life after being injected with Bio-Organic implants which also made the very peak of human physical conditioning.
In his public identity of Coltrane “Trane” Walker, an African American professional basketball player he gained great fame and wealth. Meanwhile he rose through the ranks of his organization and became Xero, a fourth level closer. Xero was his secret identity- a blonde white man with blue eyes. Over the course of his missions he developed a conscience and later died as a result of a test organized by Decker to make Coltrane his replacement. He was revived once more but was useless to the agency because of brain damage.
