- "Alban Traver. Heh heh... I know no Alban Traver. But I think I may know who you mean..."
- ― Dr. Edward Mullara, before Aces introduced himself.
Alban Traver is a former DeFiance agent, and one of the most successful in DeFiance history. Due to his prowess, he was sent to hunt the dangerous war criminal Dr. Edward Mullara in the nation of Toven. However, Mullara outsmarted Traver and captured him, and began torturing him for a year, slowly turning Alban mad. Upon breaking his will and remolding him in a way he saw fit, Mullara turned Alban into Aces, a mad jester who acted as Mullara's bodyguard and assassin for years.
Alban Vincent Traver was born in the small river town of Beofaue in Maluvaux. He grew up with very little contact with the outside world and often hunted to provide food for his family. When he turned 14, he had to turn this hunting skill against fellow human beings. Kassovian nationals attacked his town and began to kill the civilians in an act of protest against the Vauxian government. Taking a sword, Alban killed most of the rebels, but only after his family was killed in the slaughter. He from then vowed to always use his sword to protect others from the same sort of senseless slaughter.
DeFiance Career and Capture
With no family left in Maluvaux, Alban traveled to Beringia in hopes of finding work with the international peacekeeping agency known as DeFiance. After rigorous training, he was accepted into their ranks and quickly became one of their best operatives. He completed various missions and was soon set to become one of the directors of the organization. However, on his final mission to capture infamous war criminal Dr. Edward Mullara, he found himself captured by the scientist, and soon became one of Mullara's experiments. Despite it taking a year to complete, Mullara managed to completely break Alban's will and strip out his personality, leaving him hollow and moldable. Mullara used this to give Alban the new persona of Aces, a mad jester tasked with keeping Mullara safe and doing his bidding.
