Our main character, an entity named "Alex Mercer", wakes up to find himself on an experimentation table with no memory of his past. Emerging from a mysterious lab into the bustling city streets of New York, it's quickly apparent that he has a deeper mystery to unravel than a bout of amnesia. Whatever he was before, it's now questionable whether he's even human any more - or if he ever was in the first place. What sets Mercer apart is the disturbing ability to kill and absorb any other person he encounters...
