Living... onboard a massive state-of-the-art jet, dubbed “The Bus” by the team. The Bus is a key mobile base for the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division, otherwise known as S.H.I.E.L.D.
Visiting... most everywhere. Given that Ward’s “home” is an airplane, he’s essentially on the road at all times. S.H.I.E.L.D.’s scope knows no national borders, so Ward and the rest of his team hopscotch from one crisis to the next across the globe.
Profession... S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. A highly-trained solider, Ward is one of the best field agents working at S.H.I.E.L.D. There’s always a need for a man like that in the secretive government agency that handles peacekeeping, intelligence gathering, and managing “gifted” humans like Iron Man, Thor, and The Hulk.
Interests... his teammate Skye. Ward takes his job too seriously to have much time for personal interests. But he’s intrigued by his plucky new co-worker, Skye, and he agrees to take her under his wing as her supervisor officer. When he’s not on a mission, Ward is either training Skye or begrudgingly joining her in a game of Battleship.
Relationship Status... single. Ward prefers to work solo and he doesn’t like the idea of having a messy relationship to hold him back. He once explained, “Personal urges can adversely affect tactical decisions.” Whether he’ll feel that way forever, of course, remains to be seen.
Challenge... learning to work with others. Ward has always seen himself as a solitary figure who does his best work alone. But now that he’s been selected as a member of Phil Coulson’s elite team, he has to learn to get along with a diverse crew that includes veteran agent Melinda May and newbie Skye. Ward is used to having people rely on him, but now he has to get comfortable with the idea of relying on others, too.
Personality... efficient, disciplined, confident, self-reliant, and prickly. Like Coulson, Ward completes his missions by the books. And while he’ll work with a team if he has to, he generally prefers to put his considerable skills to use independently. Because he’s so concerned with efficiency, Ward often comes off as anti-social or unemotional. But under truth serum he once admitted, “I try to mask my pain in front of a beautiful woman, it makes me seem more masculine.”
