His birth name is Is̶a̴̧a̵̶c Weiss, but such information is heavily guarded and hidden deep within government files. He now goes by the alias of Ju̶͟stin Ca͠s̴e̷ (a not-so-noticeable play on words), complete with a multitude of falsified records, but is also known as the legendary agent dubbed "The Ar̸c̕hitect" on the streets and any associated channels, or as "Da̢v͜e Null" and "Gabriel Monday" whenever he's needed to quickly drop a name.

A single word needed to describe W̟͝ȇ̜i͙͘s͚̈́s̛̬ - weird. Or perhaps the word strange fits better; Or for that matter, unique is the only term that comes to mind. He, for a he he is indeed (judging by the androgynous bodyframe cast by the undersuit that he is known for), and at one glance, the average person would (incorrectly) assume that Weiss is a robot or cyborg of some sort. An ectomorphic framework who is neither seemingly gaunt nor corpulent, the legendary hacker is a daywalker and a night-crawler, a prowler of the streets and a smiling face from the shadows. Henceforth, befitting his station as a sleeper agent, he wears no markings or insignias of any kind that could betray him as a member of either FIRE̸̶WALL or the GPD.

Consequently, the Archit̡̡e͝ct dresses ordinarily casual when not behind a desk or on active doughnut-guarding duty. A gray and purple zippered hoodie and olive drab jeans, loosely layered atop his 6'2" frame, concealing a full-bodied armored undersuit and a full-face emoticasting helmet to serve as his "face". Vintage 2004 purple Converse sneakers tap along the ground he walks upon, and he sports a number of as͘̕s̵orted accessories to assist him with his various activities while in the field.

However, just because he carries few weapons does not mean he is defenseless. He is more than adept in using knives and guns, however he finds the latter harder to conceal and carry, resorting to the former most of the time. In lieu of the standard-issued firearm, he carries a number of his signature programmable nanodrones in addition to a personalized graphene-ceramic composite switchblade, harder and sharper than most b̶́l̶̨a͘͝d͝eş̵ made of other materials, for when he is required to draw blood. While not necessarily much in the terms of lethality, when activated, the microbots are capable of fulfilling a variety of roles, though mostly to assist in visualizing a crime scene.

Firearms can be taken easily enough when necessary, but for the most part he prefers the intimacy of his microswarm. For Weiss, dancing, fighting, and sex are, when done properly, all the same art form. And there is something to be admired in the footwork and grace in melee fighting, the same with any intense dance, and of course with techniques in bed. He is also capable of hand-to-hand combat, exhibiting a style that might be described as half minimalist martial art, and half brutal street b̨̛r͡͞͝aw̢͡l̶e̢r̸͢.̵

It has been rumored, but never confirmed, that Weiss may have an extensive number of enhancements. These suspicions come from his strength, speed, and reflexes displayed during combat, however it is hard to guess whether these abilities come from his suit or from years of government service, only to have these accusations grow larger after each sighting.

"Agent Monday" is a digital ghost, an (mostly) unarmored, exposed secret agent--spy, watchman, double-agent, and more. He frequents the criminal underworld and highworld. His clientele often involves junkies, ferrymen, Mafioso, hookers, and petty crooks in the streets, clubs, and shady alleyways; and likewise politicians, corporate heads, and the rich elite in their penthouses, offices, and country clubs. He serves as an ear and mouth for the GPD and FIREW͠A̴L͜L, listening to the current that flows in these circles and, when beneficial to the GPD, starting new ripples. But this is just his day job.

He is cunning and mentally dangerous. He looks at people in terms of the threat they pose; those deemed as one are treated immediately and permanently, those not are ignored only for the moment—but never wholly disregarded. He takes quiet satisfaction in dissecting the minds of those he's dealing with, allowing him to be all the better̡ in͠ interacting with them--but also so that he can string them along however he pleases. He dwells in a world with int̡e̕l͞l͟ects ranging at either extremity; from the incredibly sharp and devious to the broken and trodden. While it makes for quite̛ ͢fún ̧s̡p̀ort̡, his personal views and actions, to their core, dehumanize him.

While this seems as a tactically positive reaction regarding his shrouded history and training, others (for the most part) fail to attach a human face to what lingers behind his helmet, and Weiss's mercurial and abnormal nature does nothing to remedy this. He is known for being absent during important briefings, preferring to "do what he does best", and when̷e͘v͜͞er he is seen by others, whether it's in the office or on the streets, his face is generally hidden behind that damn helmet that serves as his public identity.

However, don't take that as a sign that he's never been seen without the mask. Beneath his signature appearance, his form takes on a more mundane feeling, yet the only constant to this facade is a pair of (cheap) sunglasses and that protective undersuit he wears. What seems to be straight black hair has been slicked long enough to assume that as its natural shape, crowning a sharply angled, wolfish visage. Thin lips and a hawkish nose give him a menacing yet tempting expression, only compounded upon by his devilish grin. His is a exceedingly nondescript yet enticing face; one that is menacingly repulsive and yet daringly inviting at the same time; explicitly descriptive yet average enough to forget once you look away. Despite his age, the years have been kind on him, and it has attracted many... and spared very few.

His eyes are steel blue-grey, hidden away behind a pair of aviator sunglasses - perhaps his greatest and most accurate betrayers. It has been said, "The eyes are the window to the soul," and that is certainly evident in Weiss's case. They are too edged, too piercing. To hold his gaze is to behold a very analytical and cold mind, one capable of revelry one moment, and indifferent business the next. They are doors into a mind that samples pleasure and sin, and will destroy all of it on a whim.

Every nation, every government, and every organization has its dark practices, and the United States is certainly no exception. Clad (underneath his always-changing attire) in a jet-black and silver bodysuit made from several composite materials with data ma̸n̶͢͠i̛p̢ú́͠lation capabilities, Weiss is by far one of the more elusive oṕ̡͜e͡r̴a̷̷͠tives that the U.S. Government -and by proxy, FIREWALL- has been known to utilize for their less-than-legal activities.

This Arc̶hí͡tect is a walking myth, both figuratively and literally speaking. He is a living shadow, with little to no records existing, and the few that do exist have been blacked out due to his life-long government career. This allows him to remain undercover with whatever alias he's currently using with no worry that he'll "be fi̴͘͠g̡u̴̧r̢͢ed out", as every contract, every covert operation that he has participated in, had been removed from whatever records they were on when he had completed them. From the "few" undercover contracts that he receives from FIR̡E̷͠WALL and his government handlers, he has more than enough time to "kill off" an alias and start anew, and when coupled with his previous history, effectively makes him a sleeper agent. Blank fingerprints, if any to begin with, included.

Though the history of how Weiss became to be affiliated with the GPD and F̶͝Ì͘R̵̢EẀ̸͘AL̴̡̧L̴ is dubious at best, it is known that he's employed under the name of "Justin C̛a̷̴s͝e" as an on-field digital forensics expert and resident information broker currently for the Grimmore Police Department while moonlighting as one of their undercover detectives.

Jokingly called a wizard when it comes to technology, Weiss's skill at data recovery and manipulation is considered magic (stemming from Clarke's Third Law) when compared to other so-called programmers and their ilk. A living anomaly among his kind, Isaac is a rare breed that's capable of using specialized security exploits and vulnerabilities to infiltrate and manipulate multiple sources on the digital spectrum.

Just as the unskilled refers to it as magic, Weiss is capable of remotely accessing various data systems and subvert the security of what would be considered "unhackable." It's through this, that he could override the necessary administrator permissions of the affected piece of tech, allowing him to manipulate said technology as if it was an extended part of his conscious for a limited time. What makes Weiss really shine however, is when he utilizes this so-called "magic" in a manner to stay hidden while in plain sight. By hacking into any and all nearby security systems (and optical devices), Weiss is capable of effectively erasing his footprint as he edits himself out from data feeds and video footage, while in real-time.

-Notes on FIREWALL-

Weiss is a member of the sub-faction located deep within the U.S. Government's organizational structure known as FIREWALL. They are secretive in their nature, as the original purpose of the organization was to serve as a failsafe should government organizations become tainted under political or criminal influence. They are mainly an intricate web of spies and information thieves, but are often used for wetwork operations. They don't discuss to others about their affiliations, as this valuable information can be used against them and can backfire, often resulting in an operative's discovery and removal.

-Relationships with Grimmore Police Department-
As the department's resident information broker and on-field infosec/digital forensics specialist, he often works alongside Detective Williams, much to mutual chagrin, as she's more by-the-book while he's the one willing to get down and dirty with the wrong crowds - The good ol' good cop, bad cop combo. He doesn't care much for them, as it seems that Weiss has a certain disdain for the many unnecessary regulations imposed by the department, and while the same could be said about the GPD's care for him, he is often considered a necessary evil, since he's one of the best at what he does. Despite these differences, he works alongside the other officers and detectives with relative ease, especially when it's regarding information updates and the like for their current case.
