Adrian Shephard is a 22 year old U.S. Marine Corporal assigned to the Hazardous Environment Combat Unit from the Santego Military Base, Arizona, where he was trained by Drill Instructors Dwight T. Barnes and Sharpe, the silent protagonist of Half Life: Opposing Force. He is one of the men sent to the Black Mesa Research Facility to kill the Xen invaders and later silence the witnesses, especially a scientist named Gordon Freeman, as part of a classified mission. Early in the game, Shephard finds himself separated from his unit and ends up fighting solely for his life, aided by fellow Marines scattered around the facility and Black Mesa employees. He's notable for being one of the few individuals to have survived the Black Mesa incident but, unlike Freeman, he was kept in an unknown void and was pronounced by the G-Man as "detained".
In the FWM, his sanity had deteriorated over time, making him increasingly violent and now has an uncontrollable twitch. He despises Freeman, blaming him for his detainment and for the deaths of many of his friends at Black Mesa. The G-Man temporarily freed him and the first thing he did was search for weapons and confronted Freeman in an almost fatal battle that would have claimed both belligerents but the G-Man intervened. He presented Shephard with a choice to either join wrestling but leave Freeman be for the time being or return to purgatory in the void. Shephard chose the former, not wanting to endure detainment once more and was allowed to roam the FWM freely once again. It is speculated that he may be put in UCA developmental; oddly enough, Freeman happens to be on the main roster of UCA itself. How Shephard will take this, considering his current mental state, is anyone's guess.
