Aspects

Serve the Public Trust: Harding's time with the police have conditioned him to act in the best interests of his "public" above his own, whoever his public happens to be at the time.
Protect the Innocent: Will act in the defense of those he feels are innocent and in support of his own moral code.
Raised on Starcraft: Vance has grown acutely aware of the form and function of electronic equipment.
Headphones On, World Out: Vance has a tendency to wear his headphones at all times, though he may or may not always be listening to something.
Gathering Steam: Vance's arm is a clockwork replacement, created by the expertise of Tau Vriska…both of them. It renders him immune to the effects of SCP-882, and will repair itself when fed scrap metal, but the ticking and clicking may interfere with his focus.

[T] Mark of Mal: The snake's mark goes deeper than skin, kid.
[T] Are You My Mommy?: Vance feels a great urge to protect insects, for whatever reason. He must make a DC 3 MDEF check to raise a weapon against any chitinous creature.
[T] Porcine Pilgrim

Personal History

Harding was born in the environs of Fremont, California, to fast lives and big money. Through high school, his interests leaned towards the technical, leading him to pursue a technical college after he graduated with average overall marks. Following his graduation with honors, he enrolled with the Fremont police. His aptitude and preference for the technological was recognized, and he was transferred into the Computer Forensics division, where he made Sergeant.
Following the suspicious death of a rich old man in Fremont, routine analysis of the deceased's computer yielded a heavily-encrypted archive. Breaking the encryption led Harding into an investigation that quickly gained the attention of Foundation assets.
He was reported as requisitioned by the FBI to conduct special investigations related to that case, and stationed at Site-34, where he served until [DATA EXPUNGED], leading to his eventual transfer to Site-23.
