MacGyver, or "Mac," as his friends call him, is a master of improvisation. Using
his vast scientific knowledge and unique ability to see items as individual components he
can use ordinary objects to get himself and his companions out of trouble. All he carries
with him is a Swiss Army knife and, occasionally, a roll of duct tape and some odds and
ends having forsaken guns (and firearms in general) after a traumatic childhood incident,
and tries to avoid violence as much as he can.
Raised in Mission City, Minnesota, MacGyver joined the
Special Forces Bomb Disposal team in Vietnam after graduating from high school. After
finishing his tour of duty, MacGyver completed his education at Western Tech University
with a science degree before setting off to see the world.
He spent several years working odd jobs including
Hell fighting oil-well fires, race-car driving and working at a youth center
before meeting Department of
External Services (DXS) agent Pete
Thornton. Thornton was impressed with MacGyver's ingenuity and asked MacGyver to work
with him at the DXS and later the Phoenix Foundation. Over the
years, their friendship became very strong, with Pete taking on a father-like role to
In his spare time MacGyver can most probably be found at
the local skating rink, indulging his passion for ice hockey. Although his childhood
dreams of playing professional hockey were shattered in a hockey accident when he was in
his teams, he still enjoys playing as much and often as he can. His other hobbies include
painting, playing guitar and collecting classic western movies. He also spends time
volunteering at the Challengers
Club, a local youth center.
One of MacGyver's more unusual traits is his fear of
romantic commitment. This fear, which has stifled many a relationship, stems from his
previous experiences of people close and dear to him being killed or dieing, such as his
father and grandmother being killed in a car accident when he was twelve years old; his
mother dying of complications from a stroke while he was on assignment overseas, his
fiancée being shot and presumed dead while helping him on assignment. He worries that
whoever he becomes close to will die, just like his parents and grandmother did.
Despite his misgivings about commitment, MacGyver remains the eternal optimist beleaving
that everyone can change for the better if given the chance.
