Eric Gage was born on September 20, 1990 in San Francisco, California. He grew up as an only child with his parents. While on a sleepover with a friend when he was 13, four burglars had broken into the house only to allegedly flee when spotting a family photo of the household's father, who was a Navy SEAL sniper. That night inspired Gage's dream to become a SEAL.
Gage was an expert football player in high school and played safety and kick returner at Stanford University.
In the middle of his junior year, he was forced to quit college by his parents in fear that he couldn't stay in California anymore. He joined the US Navy in Honolulu and eventually achieved his dream of becoming a Navy SEAL, being assigned to SEAL Team Seven. During his time, he has served in multiple countries including the Philippines, Iraq and Afghanistan.
Sometime afterwards, he is transferred to the Naval Reserves and is recruited into Shade, becoming the Eagles' executive officer.
Gage is shown to be rather stoic with a laser-like focus.
