HistoryEdit

Grant Ward was an agent of Hydra who had a rough childhood: When he was a child, his older brother Maynard forced him to bully their younger brother, eventually throwing the younger brother into a well, in which he drowned.[1][2] Eventually, in 1999, Ward was sent off to military school, but he went AWOL, stole a car and attempted to set his brother's house on fire, unaware that he was inside. This landed him in the Juvenile Detention Facility in Plymouth, Massachusetts. As his family was pressing his charges and Maynard wanted him tried as an adult, Ward was recruited by John Garrett, who taught him self-sufficiency by spending months out in the wilderness with no one but a dog named Buddy for company. Eventually, Garrett revealed his allegiance to Hydra and had Ward implanted in S.H.I.E.L.D. as a sleeper agent.[3]

After witnessing Project Centipede in action, Ward was assigned to Agent Coulson's special S.H.I.E.L.D. team to investigate renegade superhumans. He has become Skye's senior officer, imparting martial tactics training, and his words helping her develop a greater sympathy for S.H.I.E.L.D. than she previously possessed.[4]

When Hydra was revealed to have infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D, Ward helped Coulson's team infiltrate and secure the Hub. When Garrett was exposed as a Hydra agent, Ward assisted him in escaping custody by killing Victoria Hand.[5] He then went on to springing Raina from prison, and raid the Fridge. However, as the hard drive he stole containing information on GH.325 required for Garrett was encrypted by Skye, Ward was forced to go undercover to get her to decrypt it.[6] For a time, his ploy worked, but as Agent Koenig was close to uncovering NSA surveillance of the Fridge, which would've exposed Ward's involvement in the raid, he was forced to kill Koenig and hide his body. Skye soon finds Koenig and realized Ward's true allegiance.[2] She keeps her cool long enough when she and Ward went to Los Angeles to crack the drive to tip off the authorities to Ward's identity as a Hydra agent. But Skye's escape is short lived as she is grabbed by Deathlok. Held captive, Skye confronted Ward on his betrayal, to which he reveals his feelings for her but this only disgusted her.[7] After Skye's escape, Ward began to doubt having a chance with her.[8]

During the final confrontation with his former S.H.I.E.L.D. team, Ward was defeated by Agent May and sustained damage to his larynx serious enough that he was rendered unable to speak. Ward was taken into custody of the U.S. military, with Coulson informing him of Garrett's death and promising to make him suffer for what he has done.[8]

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Abilities

  • Multilingual: Ward speaks six different languages which include English, French, Russian,[9] Italian [10] and Spanish.[6]
  • Expert Spy: Grant has the best espionage scores after Agent Romanoff.
  • Expert Hand-to-Hand Combat: Ward has shown himself to be a very skilled fighter, having top combat scores.[4]
  • Expert Marksman: Ward has extensive training with a variety of small arms, and is an accurate shooter with most of them.
  • Skilled Seducer/Manipulator: He is skilled in the field of seduction and manipulation,[6] such as allowing things to get intimate with Agent May because she was a threat to him. The only reason he became Skye's S.O was to understand the way she works, and how he fooled the team into trusting him by saving Jemma Simmons.

    Weaknesses

Ward so completely defined himself by his loyalty to John Garrett that he allowed himself to be drawn into actions that contrasted starkly with his inner nature. He was at a loss for what to do when Garrett descended into insanity, dedicated to a madman who really wasn't worth that devotion.

Transportation
