Todos los hombres de la familia de Piers Nivans han sido militares desde los tiempos de su bisabuelo. Desde bien pequeño, Piers decidió que quería seguir los pasos de su padre. Se graduó como primero de su clase en un academia militar de élite, donde ya reconocieron su admirable habilidad como francotirador. Tras graduarse, entró en las Fuerzas Especiales del Ejército. Sin embargo, no tardó mucho en desilusionarse. Llevaba a cabo sus ejercicios sin problema, pero quería llegar más lejos, demostrar qué había servido todo su entrenamiento. Y justo en 2010, Chris Redfield impresionado por las habilidades de Piers, le pidió que se uniera a la BSAA.
Piers quedó muy impresionado con la forma en que Chris guiaba a su equipo: trataba a sus compañeros como si fuesen de la familia, no como soldados prescindibles. Chris, por su parte, era consiente de que no podía trabajar como agente de campo para siempre, y por ello reclutó a Piers. Chris cree que el futuro de la BSAA está en manos de individuos con talento como Piers, y este, a su vez, ahora tiene una causa por la que luchar.
All the men in Piers Nivans' family have been in the military, going all the way back to his great-grandfather. For as long as he could remember, Piers wanted to follow in his father's footsteps. He graduated at the top of his class from an elite military academy, where he was highly recognised for his skills as a sniper. Following graduation, he joined the army's Special Forces.
Not long after joining the Special Forces, he became disillusioned. While he continued to participate in his drills without a hitch, he yearned for some greater calling, a reason for all this training. In 2010, he found that calling when Chris Redfield, impressed with Piers' sniper skills, asked him to join the BSAA.
Piers was impressed with the way Chris ran Alpha Team; he treated them like a family and not like expendable soldiers. Chris, for this part, knew he couldn't be a field agent forever, which is why he recruited Piers. Chris believes the future of the BSAA lies with talented individuals like Piers, and Piers, for his part, now has a cause worth fighting for.
Piers spoke to some of those under him regarding Chris about a year ago. Below is a memo written by one of them who seemed to take great interest in what Piers had to say.
Piers talked the other day about Chris Redfield, what the man went up against when he was my age. I gotta say, it's pretty crazy.
When Chris was 25, he was involved in the famous Mansion Incident. He went up against B.O.W.s before they were even called B.O.W.s, and lived! Just that alone is awesome enough. But then 3 months after, he goes on a solo mission to search for his sister at Rockfort Island, which was run by Umbrella. He ran into monsters made from a new virus and even went up against Albert Wesker.
I don't think I could ever handle all that he did at this point in my life. He is one hell of a guy. A legend, even!
I'd want to be just like him. I just don't know if I really got what it takes.
