Character Biography[]

A treasury agent who always carries a Beretta 92FS Inox stainless steel pistol as his sidearm, Travers surprised his colleagues when he is revealed to be a traitor who is working with a highly organized band of criminals led by Eric Qualen to retrieve 500 million dollars in uncirculated $1,000 bills for international banking transactions. The inside man, Travers sabotaged the plane the money was in and stole it killing his colleagues on the way. Travers claimed to have a foolproof plan but it failed in the end because of a last desperate act of one of his colleagues and Gabe Walker´s actions.

In an act of revenge because of it, Travers tried to kill Gabe Walker, but Travers underestimated him and paid with his life after Gabe shot him in the chest with a flare gun.
