A new director is appointed to the CIA named Michael Beesley, a naive overconfident politician with little military experience. The Deputy Director, Adrian Kane, briefs him on his first day and informs him of Moses' career, and the extend of it. Beesley freaks out upon discovering not only the seer numbers of high profile assassinations, but also that the man who carried them out is still alive, and worries what might happen if his crimes are ever exposed to the public. To bury the past, he orders the death of Paul Moses, over the protests of Kane, who insists that Moses is nowadays just a harmless retiree, who wouldn't dream of betraying the agency.

* AssholeVictim: Beesly. The man is a smug pencil-pusher that doesn't understands that people like Moses are perfectly willing to take their secrets to the grave, [[WeHaveReserves or that sending his men to die in droves is just tossing good money after bad]].

** CrapsackWorld

to:

* MandatoryUnretirement: He is forced into this when the CIA comes to kill him.

* MandatoryUnretirement: He Moses is forced into this when the CIA comes to kill him.

* OneManArmy
* RedShirt: Pretty much everybody he meets.
* RetiredMonster: Moses is aware that he was basically a mass-murdering monster during his time in the CIA, but he was pretty content with his retirement, and he is not happy about being force out of it.

* BlackAndGrayMoralityBlackAndGrayMorality: Moses is a man who has done lots of horrible things, but is willing to pay for them by going to Hell when he dies. Beesly is a pencil-pushing idiot that is willing to let many of his employees die and hands out assassination orders like there's no tomorrow for the sake of improving the CIA's reputation.



* {{Determinator}}

to:

* {{Determinator}}{{Determinator}}: Moses. The man takes on the CIA single-handedly and does so much damage by the time the comic ends [[spoiler:it looks like he is still capable of killing the whole Agency alone, even if he's cornered and has about fifty guns trained on him at point-blank range.]]



* ImproperlyParanoid: The whole mess occurs because Beesly overreacts and decides it's best to kill a man that was incredibly loyal to the Agency when he was active and is now retired and peacefully living what little is left of the rest of his days in seclusion rather than risk the infinitesimally small chance [[HeKnowsTooMuch that someone will make him talk about what he's done.]]



* MotiveRant

to:

* MotiveRantMotiveRant: A lot of the spiels Moses delivers throughout the comic are a combination of this and BadassBoast.

* NotSoStoic: Moses might be able to kill as easily as he breathes and shows little to no outward remorse about it, but the fact that at he at several point experiences what can only be described as PTSD-like flashbacks about his bloody past, shows that all the killing he has done is actually bothering him on some level.
