Keepers are a lethal, agile and flexible force, capable of conducting complex, joint special operations missions. Used as a primarily tier-one counter-terrorist unit, specifically directed to kill or capture high value units or dismantle terrorist cells. Keepers remain extremely flexible and can engage in direct action missions, hostage rescues, and covert missions working directly with the Majesty. Keeper Agents are under operational control of Atamar von Bogdan, the Minister of Justice.

Haven: Behind the Books – RUGER

Written by dcakers@dc-akers.com on April 29th, 2014. Posted in Haven: Behind the Books

We have big plans for the next installment in the Haven Series: Elixir of Life. We are going to dive deep into the world of Haven. There will be more action, more intrigue, and more deception coming your way. There will also be a host of new characters. So as we take this journey together, I wanted to begin by showing you some of the work being done by the very talented members of the Haven Team in preparation for making Elixir of Life the best Haven book ever!

Over the course of the year, we will take a rare look “Behind the Book” into the creation of the world we call Haven. You will be the first to see original concept art, audiobook samples, and much more! It should be quite a ride.

For the first installment of Haven: Behind the Books we are going to take a look at the concept art for a new Haven character in Elixir of Life, code name: RUGER, a fallen Paladin turned Assassin. This rare video footage was captured while the concept art was being created. Haven Team member Juan Caruso demonstrates his raw talent as he brings to life one of Havens most ruthless killers. Enjoy the journey!

Ruger - Head Shot

During the battle of the Great War there were only three active Paladin teams in existence. All three teams were lost in action due to compromised intelligence. Only one survivor exists to date. Call sign: Ruger.

The Paladin division was originally formed by the Majesty to conduct clandestine missions behind enemy lines and capture enemy targets and intelligence against impossible odds.

The Paladins were known to be cunning and patient, backed by swift and decisive action when necessary. As highly trained soldiers, they were lethal in both hand-to-hand combat as well as hand-held weapons.
A Paladin team was made up of no more than five soldiers, each specialized in a specific area of guerrilla warfare. The small, highly trained teams usually worked at night conducting some of the Majesty’s most important missions.

Paladin recruitment was also top secret. No one knew the identity of a single soldier except for the Paladin Master Chief.
