History: A former factory worker, the Turkish Morituri known as Shear proved to be one of the most bloodthirsty members of the Strikeforce. Backhand's explosive death started a brain tumour developing in Shear's head, swiftly causing a descent into paranoia and madness. Shear slew the Strikeforce's commander, Yuri Pogorelich, during a psychotic fit, and was pursued by his teammates when he fled. He was eventually confronted by Scanner atop a high scaffold; Knowing Shear had slain Yuri and Radian, and wrongly believing Shear had slain two of the other Morituri, Scanner knocked Walther off the edge, and he fell to his death.
