Biography

Childhood

Born into a noble family of the Duala people in British Cameroon, Kingsley attended the University of Cambridge in England at the age of 16 at the behest of his father. After studying international affairs, learning many languages along the way, Kingsley graduated in 1936 and joined the British Army.

Beginning of the War

In 1939, Kingsley was deployed in France as part of the British Expeditionary Force after the British Empire declared war on Nazi Germany following the invasion of Poland. The next year, he was one of the soldiers from the Battle of Dunkirk who made it back to England.

Task Force Vanguard

In June 1944, now a Paratrooper Sergeant, Kingsley participated in Operation Tonga as part of the Normandy landings. Following his brave actions during the operation, he was assigned as the leader of the Special Operations Task Force 001, also known as Task Force Vanguard, and was deployed in a submarine base in Germany in search of intel regarding the plans of the Nazi High Command following the fall of Berlin.

In April 1945, now promoted to Lieutenant, Kingsley was placed in charge of a special forces unit operating under the British Special Operations Executive, tasked with obtaining information on Project Phoenix.

Mercenaries of Fortune

At some point after the war, Arthur would become a mercenary. Arthur would be chasing after a crashed helicopter containing Nazi Gold when he would come across Butcher who was also after the gold. The two stare at each other until Trident's Lewis Howard, Yeti's Anna Drake and Harpy's Florence Carter join Arthur, and Task Force Immortal's Ikenna Olowe and Callum Hendry join Butcher. The two teams then begin to fire upon one another, both after the gold.
