Bio: Corporal 22 Special Air Service (S.A.S.) Regiment of the British Army in Northern Ireland. Follows in the footsteps of his father, an S.A.S captain who also served in Northern Ireland. Young, capable, and a good all-rounder, Poole is tipped for a good career. Closet homosexual.
Years later, and now openly gay, Poole was attacked by a homophobic soldier, but the attack was covered up to spare the S.A.S. embarrassment, causing Poole to resign. He was recommended to the Secret Intelligence Service (S.I.S. or MI6) and hired as the third Special Operations Officer to occupy the position of Minder Three in less than a year.
