History: A tall, gaunt man with an angular face, Missouri-born adventurer Lee Nace was known as the Blond Adder due to a serpentine scar on his forehead, a relic of being hit on the head with the hilt of a knife that had a serpent shaped carving on it. Using his scientific knowledge he repeatedly solved macabre cases, though his involvement was not welcomed by Homicide's Sergeant Gooch. Scotland Yard, on the other hand, once hired him for an entire year just so they could study his methods.
