Deangelo Roberts is a former Navy SEAL born in Chicago, Illinois. Upon completion of training, he was immediately deployed for Naval Special Warfare missions. His SEAL team had a large hand in defeating the Taliban in Afghanistan during Operation Anaconda–Driving Osama bin Laden into hiding. The mission, however, left Roberts with night terrors causing the SEAL to defect. Mistakenly thought to be K.I.A., he was detained for court marshall after Commander Maximoff Martyr recognized him from footage of a sunken cruise ship–the Zenith. He has one sibling, Denarii Harmon.
