|Terry O’Houlihan is taller than average, at 6’3”. He is fairly thin, but that belies a swimmer’s form. He stands high, with his lips almost always turned up in a small smile. His sad, hazel eyes tell the story of a tough time so far in the world, and his hair, not yet streaked with gray, is thinning. He keeps it cut very short.

Hopefully this works.
|Terry, as a priest of the Catholic church, has many duties that he must attend to in his parish. His time training with the military as a field medic has given him talents that the Institute was looking for in a sometimes-agent. His deep faith is, so far, pretty well the only thing that's kept it going. Thus far, he hasn't seen anything, however, to shake it.|
|Terry was born into an impoverished Irish family, trying to scrounge for anything that makes men live. His father was a ridiculous drunk; he would often come home and beat his wife and the kids. Terry kind of knew that his father did it out of depression and despair--- a dead-end job with a ceiling two feet above his head, literally and figuratively.
It was only on Sunday mass that his family knew solace---all of them devout Catholics, even his father. On Sundays they’d all get up and go listen to Father Callahan talk from the pulpit--- the father was Terry’s early idol, and he aspired to be a priest from a very early age, even though, as it turned out, it was not to be, immediately.
When Terry was only 14, his father ended his own life, and the effect was a real trauma. His mother seemed to cry every day after that---a violent drunk he may have been, but she still loved him. He and his two younger brothers couldn’t understand it---the youngest, Geoffrey, openly said he was glad it was over.
However, this naturally created serious problems for the O’Houlihan family---what with the sudden lack of a bread winner in their house---their mother decided that it was time for a big change in their lives---and besides, she couldn’t bear to stay in that house any longer. Terry, who had been an altar boy at the church, was sad to see the country he’d grown up in left behind.
He was a fairly decent swimmer as a youth, and was recruited to several prominent British universities, as that is where their mother had taken them. He decided to join the military academy, and swim for their team---if an athlete at one of the academies decided he didn’t want to be military, he could simply leave after a couple years---but Terry stuck it out. He knew that if he made it through, the army would help take care of his still-struggling family, so he pressed on. He had a small cross on a sterling silver chain that he still keeps on his person today. He would kiss it every morning and pray every night, and his devout Catholicism alienated him from some of his bunkmates, but he didn’t care about that either.
He swam for the team but didn’t do especially well, as he was never exceptionally strong. However, he focused more of his efforts on his learning, familiarizing himself with some of the tactics involved in soldiering, but he got his highest marks in medicine, even getting himself a commission as a field medic. The idea of being able to focus more on saving lives than taking them appealed highly to his religious background.
Once he was finished with his stint in the British Army (it was easier than going back home to Ireland), he applied for and received a post in the Catholic church, in a small church in Sacramento, California. Regardless of how far it was from his home, he figured that it was best to continue with his ministry. He got some weapons for protection in the area, because he knew that no matter how idyllic your location, it's good to be protected. He had ministered for several years when he was contacted by the Institute. Knowing that he must not focus on monetary assets, the stipend they were offering was too much for even him to pass up. It was thus that he assigned duties to the acolytes in his church, and set off to what he deemed to be a trial of his faith.
