About Him

Grew up… as an average American citizen in Virginia. After high school, Brody married his longtime girlfriend Jessica and they had two children. They lived a quiet, normal life until 2003, when Brody joined the U.S. Marine Corps and was shipped off to Iraq.

Living… something resembling a normal life, again. Brody was found somewhere deep inside a terrorist base in Afghanistan, barely conscious, eight years after his deployment. He was rescued and returned home to suburban Virginia, and is now trying to become the “regular” American that he once was. But life at home is difficult: “I’m more alone than I was in the bottom of that hole in Iraq.”

Profession… Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. Brody, along with his friend Mike, joined up before the war in Iraq. As the motto of the Marine Corps puts it, “Once a Marine, always a Marine.”

Relationship Status… married, with children. Even though Brody hasn’t seen his wife in eight years, or even met his young son, his family does its best to embrace him and welcome him home. Luckily, Brody’s friend Mike has been looking after his wife, Jessica. Though Brody can only wonder whether or not he’s been looking after her a bit too much.

Challenge… returning to normal life back home. This is made even more difficult by the amount of attention he’s been getting in the press and, oddly, by the C.I.A. An agent named Carrie Mathison seems to suspect something. Did all the time he spent as a captive of terrorists turn him into one?

Personality… stoic, reserved and, most of all, obedient. Brody is a true Marine. Being in terrorist custody for eight years has damaged him, but it’s unclear how he’s been changed and to what extent.
