Early lifeEdit

Years ago, Christophe Tanner ran into his kid's school as a madman was shooting inside the school. Christophe was shot in the face and both of his sons were executed, leaving only one surviving son by the name of Christophe Tanne, Jr. While he survived, his eyes were severely damage and undergone unique surgery to be able to see from his guns. He then took the name "Old Gun" and been active in the assassination community. Grayson: Agents of Spyral

Agents of SpyralEdit

Desiring Paragon's eyes in order to undergo surgery to restore his sight back to normal, he kills Barton Tare and steals the organs. Planning to meet his surgeon in Malaysia, he is interrupted by Agent 37 as well as other agents of Spyral. After nearly killing 37 and being knocked out by Agent 1, he later visits his surviving son's school and meets Agent 37 once again. After Agent 37 chastises him for his gun usage and hastiness, he gives the eyes to the spy and shares a tender moment before he's shot by Agent 8. Returning a gun shot towards her neck for the final time, he then falls off a building into a playground, dying in front of his surviving son. Grayson: Agents of Spyral
