Duke Reynolds was once a high school dropout and an expert gamer in his neighborhood. Despite dropping out, his mother still thought it was quite fine for him to get a job instead. However, in his childhood and teenage years he was attracted to video games and eventually wanted to become the heroes he play as in his games, but in reality he was just a regular person with no power, only being told to believe in himself when he lacked the spirit of one
But soon his Freak gift gave him power to make his dream come true as one day he got sucked into the digital world of the game he was playing. As he began to train his abilities in the digital world, he discovered a strange crystal and when he touched it, he accidentally freed one of the monsters from the game into the outside world.
Duke jumped out as he transformed into his knight avatar to combat the monster who was wrecking cars around the streets and eventually won the battle. Weeks later, he was called by Photon to join the Fortress Legion due to heroic act that he has done upon saving civilians when an agent who was observing him. As Duke finally got his wish come true, he now became a hero not only in his games, but also in reality as he joined Fortress Legion.
