Wade Brandeis is a U.S Delta Force captain who once operated for the Intelligence Convergence Group, and survived past its dismantling.
Before Scarecrow Edit
Under unknown circumstances prior to 1997, Wade Brandeis was recruited into the Intelligence Convergence Group.
Brandeis once worked with Aloysius Knight in Delta Force. However when Knight discovered Osama bin Laden meeting with CIA agents (who were presumably working for the ICG as well), Brandeis and his men were sent in to apparently assist him. However the ICG had ordered them to eliminate Knight and Rufus, however they realised they were being turned upon and fled into a lighthouse. Brandeis had the lighthouse destroyed in an attempt to finish them off, only to later learn that they were in fact still alive.
Some time later, the ICG was shut down and most of its members arrested, however Brandeis was one of the few who was not realised to belong to the ICG, and thus he was able to continue to operate as a soldier.
While Brandeis was stationed at Aden, Cal Noonan contacted Brandeis and informed him of a bounty hunt in which Shane Schofield had a price on his head. In addition to bringing him in for the reward, they would pay more for Knight, who was known to be with Schofield, sealing the deal for Brandeis. Travelling to Yemem to retrieve them, he and some trusted men pulled him, Knight and Rufus from their crashed X-15s and took them to Jonathon Killian's castle in France.
Brandeis and his men stood guard of the prisoners in the Shark Pit while Noonan prepared to finish Schofield. However Mother arrived and freed Knight and Rufus. Brandeis fought Knight, however just as he believed he had the upper hand, Knight moved him into the path of an incoming shark, which promptly killed Brandeis.
