COMMANDER ANTOINE WINSTON
A veteran of the Multinational Guard, Commander Winston lives in New Austin, Texas. After a massive explosion levels a Scraper complex, Winston suspects a Humech robot may be responsible. Winston’s commitment to protecting New Austin’s citizens leads to him becoming a leader of the Human Resistance Force, a secretive group that has long anticipated a Humech takeover.
