Terry and his twin sister Linda are the youngest children of Les and Jackie Harmon, born in Ashford Kent at the William Harvey Hospital. They have one older brother, Brian who is their elder by two years. Les was a police officer in scenes of crime, a police photographer, he has now retired from the force after doing his 30 years service and works as a freelance events photographer, mainly weddings. His mum Jackie worked part-time while they were growing up then went full time when the children left home. She works in administration for a national charity.
Brian has shown no psionic ability and works as a teacher in a school in Ealing, London, but does not particularly get on with the twins and there has been little contact for years. He is married to a midwife and has 3 daughters.
Growing up the twins were always close and finishing each others sentences etc and it wasn't until they were about 5 and starting primary school that it was discovered by their mother that they exhibited a rare prepuberty telepathic talent between themselves. Initially this was just through contact, but over the following few years this developed into a short range of no more than a mile. Unfortunately they used this to cheat in some school exams, but since they were actually smart enough it made little difference beyond dividing the revision time between them. Once they hit puberty it was Terry who first developed this limited telepathy into a more general form when mildly injured when clipped by a car on the way into school one day and panicked calling for his mother who had not long dropped him off. Up to this point his parents had not revealed the twins powers to anyone and they spent many hours discussing it before deciding to continue this policy. Once Terry had broadend his telepathy his sister Linda soon followed suit.
Starting secondary school and puberty triggered a rapid growth in the range if not power of Terry's abilities. The car accident, that broke an arm and bruised some ribs, was followed by some bullying. Reluctant to call on the teachers or tell his parents Terry found that he was soon healing the bruises he received before the end of the day, then before the end of the break in which he received them. Although this helped hide the bullying and was a relief to know the pain would soon go it was still painful to begin with and the bullies weren't happy when they found out that he was more accepting and less fearful of the beatings. It was an occasion when they had obviously got unusually worked up and Terry was worried they would go too far that his teleportation first triggered and enabled him to get away from them. They never managed to get hold of him again, except the times that he set them up to get caught in the process of bullying him or others.
With these new abilitiies popping up over the course of several months Terry began actively stretching his powers to be able to do more and more things. In the meantime without some of the same stimuli Linda's abilities concentrated in her Telepathy, increasing in range and related abilities, some of which she successfully taught to Terry.
By the time he was 13 Terry had already decided he wanted to serve his country like his father, but rather than the police he was set on joining the army, starting with the army cadets and martial arts after school. Linda on the other hand became more bookish as Terry became more athletic. At this age Terry had discovered most of the core abilities that he has carried on with to the present although they have been refined, improved and expanded with those groups. As he got older he began to stand out amongst his cadet unit in all round ability, although he was still careful to reveal as little as possible of his abilities. Some it was difficult to conceal though, healing scrapes, scratches and flesh wounds in a matter of at most minutes tends to get noticed. By the time he left school with a bunch of good qualifications in which he had no real interest his cadet file had already recommended that he be fast tracked for special forces training.
With the blessing of his father, and the reluctant agreement of his mother Terry enlisted in the Parachute regiment the day he received his final exam results, three weeks later he was off to boot camp. His sister had applied to the police and after revealing her Telepathy was assigned to run and monitor undercover officers since her telepathic contact with them could not normally be detected.
Terry didn't find boot camp to be as difficult as some of his fellow recruits, partially due to his years in the Army Cadet preparing him so that he knew what to expect and partially due to his psychic abilities reacting to help adapt his body to the demands he was putting it under. Despite not consciously using any abilities during Boot, he soon ran afoul of a DI with a hatred of all non-vanilla humans who had noticed his enhanced healing and faster than normal adjustment to the strength and stamina demands of the course. After making several failed attempts to trick Terry into using his abilities so that he could kick him out the DI in his frustration went too far and sabotaged Terry's chutes on his first parachute jump. Of course Terry's danger sense had kicked off as soon as he was handed the dodgy pack, but feeling secure in his own abilities and wanting to get some concrete evidence for charges against the DI Terry went through with the jump. Jumping from the plane at 5000ft Terry followed all the training exactly, pulling his primary chute which failed as he expected it to, getting rid of it and activating his secondary chute which also failed. Perhaps seeing Terry plummeting towards the ground finally woke the DI up to what he had done as he was white as a sheet when the plane landed a few minutes later. However, thinking fast to try to conceal his abilities still Terry during his fall had steered himself outside the landing zone so that rather than hit solid ground he landed in a lake several hundreds of yards away. In actuality he had waited until only about 30ft above the water then did a short teleport to kill his velocity so that he hit the water as from a 25ft drop rather than 5000ft. The subsequent investigation revealed the sabotage and the DI found himself on charges and then dishonourably discharged while Terry was congratulated on his quick thinking and 'miraculous' escape.
However, this was noted in some quarters and added to the suspicions about his healing rate from his Cadet instructors. Eventually someone come up with the suspicion of his having some kind of powers with psychic being the most likely of the list since many others would have shown up on the obligatory blood tests and medicals. Luckily for Terry the sabotage occurring during Jump School put it right at the end of Basic and he had passed out into the Regiment before someone came calling, in the shape of a psionic female Captain from Military Intelligence. After only a short time of being interviewed by her Terry realised that she must be able to tell when he was lying and so came clean about his abilities, or most of them at least. When questioned about why he had withheld the information his only reply was that he wanted to do the training without relying on his abilities, to prove to himself and, as far as possible, others that he could do it himself. Satisfied that he had no intention detrimental to the service he was allowed to continue with his career and training, but had a note in his record to push him through courses and assignments to end up in Special Forces as soon as practical.
A year later so him entering the trials for 22 Squadron the SAS (as the only UK Army special forces combat unit) which he passed relatively easily thanks to his continued physical and mental development during his time in the Para's. In fact he was asked to do a number of the challenges of the try outs a second time using his abilities to there fullest. 10 mile forced marches aren't much of a problem when you can 'port to the map reference for the finish. Likewise the 24 hour orientation challenge took him about 30 minutes. It would have been quicker but when one of the DI's attacked him while dazed after an Extended 'port he learnt to 'port short (or long), then move in on foot or using a short jump after checking out the target site first. Having first proved he could pass the course without his abilities he was accepted into the Unit, and then started the serious discussions of how to incorporate his abilities into the Unit's operations to everyone's advantage. This was followed by 10 years in the Regiment carrying out a wide variety of operations in countries all around the world.
Having come to the end of his contract Terry was recruited for Sideshow, which he agreed to as he saw it as simply an extension of some of the work he had already been doing but this time with more deserving targets.
