Biography

Early life

When the Admiral was a young boy, a machine was placed deep inside his cerebral cortex, a process that he described as being so painful that he screamed for days. A basket was then placed over his head to cover his now disfigured form. [1]

Leading Division 3

While leading Division 3 Fukuyama joined forces with the Summerland mutants to fight the Shadow King and other threats.

David Haller's Return

After David Haller was found in the night club his body was brought back to Division 3. Cary Loudermilk then scanned his brain searching for signs of infection while the Admiral watched. Cary proposes that his brain scans appear to be normal but he may not be awake as his mind may be in the Astral Plane. The Admiral told Cary that if there is any chance that David was infected he should be killed immediately. Clark defended David saying that his mind is strong and he could resist any infection.

Cary, fed up with the precautions, removes his bio hazard suit and continues to try and wake David up. Division 3 guards then enter the room and Cary asks Kerry to help. Kerry then emerges from Kerry saying hello to her coworkers. The Admiral then commands the soldiers to retreat and David wakes up.

Later, David enters the Admiral's office greeting them before trying to read the Admiral's mind. The Admiral informs him mind “their” mind cannot be read, and tells David about the machine that was placed into his head as a child. David accepts this and tells Admiral that he wants to help find the Shadow King and stop him. The Admiral states that Farouk is a part of him. David admits to this saying that they were together for a long time and he is able to sense him but now Farouk is hiding from David. David then asks for help boosting his psychic powers. The Admiral states they foresaw this and that Cary has built a machine to help David recover his memories and find Farouk. David asks what the Admiral plans to do with Farouk once they find him. The Admiral states that he will be destroyed and then they will find his real body and destroy it too because if Farouk was to reunite with his body he would be unstoppable. Division 3 does not know where Farouk's body is but they need to find it before Amahl does.[2]
