HISTORY

 

Bruce Butcher was originally a member of CANIS' Wolf Pack for over 10 years and eventually became an Emissary in their ranks.

 

Butcher, during his CANIS years, was known for his dedication to strings of successful heists, robberies and battles for CANIS.  When he finally reached the rank of Emissary, a Red Wolf Pack Legate Consuesor attempted to discredit Butcher in order to get his own son in as an Emissary in the Wolf Pack.  As such, a series of incidents were performed against Butcher and his minions, making him look unreliable to his Wolf Pack superiors.  When brought in to be 'questioned' about the incidents, the Red Wolf Legate Consuesor produced forged and doctored documents and imagery further discrediting Butcher during the meeting.  Butcher figured out the Legate Consuesor was behind the discrediting and shot him in front of his superiors.  Butcher's superiors called for an immediate capture and execution of Butcher, however, Butcher fought his way out of the meeting and got away.  With a CANIS price on his head, sent out to all other gangs in the world, as well as bounty hunters, Butcher was in deep trouble.

In one of his last heists he did, Butcher and his crew stole a prototype portable teleporter they'd stolen from a G.U.A.R.D. testing facility.  Butcher broke into the seemingly abandoned warehouse that CANIS was hiding some of their stolen products and took the personal teleporter, using it to make his escape mere seconds from being cut down by a hail of gun fire from over a dozen CANIS Omegas.

The teleporter took him straight into an underground laboratory that GUARD had previously used for testing the teleporter, deep in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.  Unsure how to correctly configure the teleporter, Butcher did a running fight with GUARD's security personnel at the underground facility all the while fidgeting with the teleporter's settings and controls.  After several minutes of this, he activated the teleporter only to be teleported over 50 feet above a high rise building in Japan.  Barely grabbing a handhold on the roof of the high rise after he fell down upon the building, he pulled himself to safety and made his way to a vacant office where he attempted to recover from his escapade and dangerous teleports.  Not knowing what to do, he contacted an old shady friend who was, at that time, working for Adrastos Aquisitions Inc.  After working out travel and money issues, Butcher flew back to the United States on one of Adrastos' private jets.

When Butcher landed in Newark, New Jersey, he was met by his old friend as well as the CEO of Adrastos Aquisitions, Eugene Adrastos, himself.  In a conversation in the limousine ride back into New York City, Butcher's old friend fumbled with the portable teleporter, attempting to figure out to operate and ascertain its teleportation settings, all the while Adrastos talked to Butcher about his future.  Adrastos wanted to hire Butcher to build a team of exceptionally talented and super-powered people to work for him and his newly formed Gold SyndicateButcher, unsure of Adrastos' motivations, agreed to the deal, but only for one year's time to 'test the waters' of their working relationship.  With all in agreement, the limo took them to one of the Gold Syndicate's warehouse hideouts to test the portable teleporter.

During the testing of the portable teleporter, it was quickly discovered that the unit was bio-locked to whoever used the suit.  As such, no one else, including Adrastos nor Butcher's old friend, were able to activate the teleporter by themselves without the associated dire consequences (accidentally being teleported to bad GPS locations, such as what happened earlier to Butcher in Japan).  After Butcher's old friend explained how to operate the teleporter, they performed a series of tests, teleporting from one end of the warehouse to the other, from the floor to the warehouse roof, and then from the warehouse to the Eiffel Tower in Paris and back.  The teleporter's testing was a success.

After a few more weeks of getting 'integrated' into the Gold Syndicate, Butcher's old friend showed him how to expand the teleportation field to a maximum radius of 20 feet where it could teleport everything in the diameter of the expanded field, thus allowing him to teleport equipment, vehicles and people.  Within weeks, Butcher was pulling off incredible heists for the Gold Syndicate, most of which were done in such a way that the affected site's guards didn't even realize until hours later that  the items had been stolen. 

Over the next few months, Butcher started gathering intel on personnel to form the super-powered and highly talented team Adrastos wanted him to create.  Before the first person was to be recruited by Butcher, Adrastos requested Butcher to wear a specialized costume and take on a new villain name so as to prevent CANIS from recognizing him in any of their operations.  With that, Goldmaster was born.

Eventually, Goldmaster was able to recruit a handful of new highly talented and super-powered people for the Gold SyndicateButcher was deemed the team's field commander, while Adrastos would lead in secret, along with other secret business leaders in their 'syndicate'.  One second after the ball dropped in Times Square, New York City to usher in the 2010 new year, Goldmaster and his team, along with dozens of Gold Syndicate Troops, pulled off massive simultaneous heists of US gold repositories successfully.  Over the last few years, their heists have been more brazen and their encounters more dangerous, fighting superheroes and GUARD along the way.

Since then, Goldmaster and his team continue to perform hundreds of heists, raids and thefts of banks, gold repositories and vaults a year, stealing not only the syndicate's namesake, but millions in cash and other precious metals.  Goldmaster agreed to renew his contract with Adrastos annually thereafter, and as such, each year, Adrastos increases Goldmaster's percentage of the annual 'take' as an incentive to stay on as the team's leader. Goldmaster's team is handsomely paid for each of the heists (Goldmaster, though, gets paid on an annual salary), but all of them only get paid in cash and/or other precious metals (not in gold). As for the gold, Prince Adrastos had Goldmaster teleport the bulk of the gold to secret hidden locations all over the world where, eventually, Adrastos will use his horded gold to destabilize the world's gold market and most of the world's economies, thus making him a financial juggernaut in a world that will be desperate for his cached gold.

Today, Goldmaster is still the field commander for the super-powered, highly talented Gold Syndicate team and the Operations Commander to all the Gold Syndicate Troops.  He trusts Adrastos more than any other boss he's ever worked for, however, with the addition of Adrastos' new programmed robot, Goldust, Goldmaster is beginning to think that it may be time to start his own empire with the woman who seems to have found a way to slither into Butcher's heart; a woman known as Acoustic Gold.

On a side note, CANIS' Red Wolf Pack replaced the Legate Consuesor with the son of the man Butcher had killed.  The new Legate Consuesor still has a mark out on Butcher with a $1 million bounty to bring him in alive, $250,000, dead, and is obsessed with finding and killing the man responsible for his father's death.  As the dark corners of the world continue their hunt for Butcher, Goldmaster continues to keep his identity a secret from everyone, including those on his own team.
