Chronicles of Revenge is a fictional autobiography based around the character of Captain Matt North.
North is a natural killer and leader; the best the UK has seen in or out of the military. He has the senses of wild animal and extraordinary skills with just about any weapon. His other unusual skills include accelerated healing abilities due to a regenerating injection for Zartanium poisoning after an attempt on his life at a young age, and a one hundred percent photographic memory, plus the ability to move without any sound, which for a man of his height and build is amazing, and years of military training.
