Pardison = Parker + Hardison

Parker

Who's Alice White?

Parker had a hard life, being put into the foster system at a young age and being cycled constantly, rarely having time to interact with other children her age. When she was ten or nine, Parker began her life as a thief, most likely because she didn't receive adequate living standards at wherever she had been living at that point, and attempted to steal in order to get what she wanted or needed. At some point Parker taught her younger brother how to ride a bike. However, shortly afterward he was in a car crash on his bicycle and died, causing Parker immense guilt and grief that she kept within herself. Before she was 12 she was a getaway driver. Some time after that she met a boy called Kelly in foster care, and he taught her how to boost cars. They worked together as a team until they boosted a bait car. He escaped the police, leaving Parker to serve 6 months in juvie. In 1998, she was found pickpocketing on the street after attempting to take what he had. Archie Leach saw her potential and decided to train her as his apprentice thief, ultimately allowing her to become very skilled in thievery.

Alec Hardison

Age of the Geek!

Growing up in a foster home, Alec Hardison knows two things: computers and technology. A geek of the first order, Hardison (as he is usually called) handles the team's electronics and monitors the team's communications through modified bone conduction earbuds. He also modified the team's cellphones, which the team can use for a variety uses. While not a grifter like Sophie, as a hacker (and through his foster grandmother), Hardison has developed excellent social engineering skills. Always quick with a joke or snide remark, his somewhat lack of maturity has caused the team problems, but he always comes through in the clutch. Hardison's natural charm allows him to get along easy with most people. His relationships with team vary. He has special relationships with two members of his team. With Eliot Spencer, it's more of a friendly rivalry similar to that of brothers. With Parker, it's more akin to a crush. As of episode one of Season 5 Hardison is dating Parker. Hardison is not to be underestimated whether in cyberspace or the real world. It is through Hardison's expertise that Leverage Consulting & Associates gains the technologies around the earbuds and the cell phones. Hardison is also the handler of the Lucille, the team's van.
