Raised in a rather ordinary fashion on the wild streets of New York, Tami grew up surrounded by crowds of people talking trash, speaking in tongues, conversing in many languages (aside from English), and piquing her burgeoning curiosity, but rarely being intelligible.
One day, she found herself in an unfamiliar part of the city, and tried to decipher the signs leading her back to the subway. As a result of her confusion, she ended up on the wrong train. This, in fact, was a happy accident that altered the direction of her life. While frantically trying reset her orientation, she realized that someone had left a black bag on the next seat.
Tami was cautiously intrigued. While it appeared to be just an old and very worn doctor’s bag, the contents of it changed her forever. The modest-looking satchel was full of tricks that became her trade: ways to decode obscure verbiage, instruments to provide clarity in conversation, and tools to communicate with ease. Since then, she has been known to all as “The Doctor.”Tami never parts with this bag, so if you find her walking determinedly through the streets of New York or elsewhere with a strong purpose in her step, you will know she has just received her next assignment.
Early one morning many years ago, a young couple found a baby on a beach. Childless, they took him home and raised him as their own. They named him, Troy.
Troy grew up awkward but strong and he possessed a healthy dose of curiosity and a keen sense of justice. He was passionate about sharing his creative ideas with the world and loved all forms of communication, public speaking and fine arts.
Unfortunately, the other children at school made fun of him. Over time, he began to feel insecure about his ideas. Were they really that good? Should he tell anyone about them? Why would anyone care in the end? He lost his confidence.
Then, late one night, as he sat alone in the back yard looking up at the stars, a flash of light shot across the sky and three aliens appeared before him.
“We are your elders from the planet Oratorio! It is time to begin your mission. Go and carry our message of concise communication, good speech and confident oration to Earthlings and beyond!” And with that, Troy vowed to battle all foes of confident communication, effective presentation-making and public oration!
Today, he lives in the bustling city of Urbanopolis as a mild-mannered public relations professional. But when he senses a client is in distress, in the flash of an eye he becomes…Captain Confidence!
