Biographical Notes:

McQueen began his life as an indentured miner on Omicron Draconis, an experience he likened to "Hell". In 2047, he was returned to Earth and was drafted into the InVitro platoons as a munitions handler at Port Riskin. After striking his squad leader for his part in an accident which claimed 27 people, McQueen was sentenced to 120 days in solitary.

Despite his negative experiences, when his indenture ended in 2049, he joined the Marines. McQueen distinguished himself as a pilot and warrior, earning himself a place in the elite 127th squadron. While serving with the Angry Angels in 2056, McQueen is captured by the AI's and held as a POW.

In 2059, T.C. marries Amy Langston.  Unable to help Amy cope with the prejudice they face, their marriage ended less than two years later.  The divorce hit McQueen hard and led to an addiction to green meanies.

The loss of his marriage only served to reinforce his already reserved nature. McQueen is assigned to command the Wildcards after surviving a battle that killed his entire squadron. Grounded by his injuries, McQueen is forced to sit out most of the 58th's missions. The Wildcards, whom he often refers to as "his kids", offer him the acceptance and sense of belonging he has rarely found in his life.
