Wire was going out of his mind not knowing what happened to his wife Heather McMurray. He took some comfort knowing that Judith Gilmore his mother-in-law was alive and that his son Adam McMurray was too. Finding nothing but dead ends with trying to locate his wife, he knew he had to find his other family, but how. He turned to his good friend Rampart.
“Ken… I need your help.” Wire asked. “I need to find some of my family and I only trust you with this task. I can’t ask the new guys ”/campaigns/the-freedom-five/characters/ironhide" class=“wiki-content-link”>Ironhide or that Nutfellow.. what’s his name Neutrino.. and well… Mr. Hendricks… is well just Lance he can wish good luck, but that’s about it."
As he had hoped Rampart helped him out carrying him across Freedom city and it’s outskirts to find his parent’s home.
Landing on the front yard quickly as he saw one section of his parents home collapsed he quickly ran to the house yelling for his mother Janice McMurray and his father Jacob McMurray. The door was jammed and unable to open so he turned on his powers and easily slipped on through the door leaving Rampart behind to deal with the door, which shouldn’t be a problem for her.
When he entered he gasped seeing the immaculate house in so much disarray. After the slight pause he took off again calling out for his mother and father hearing his mom’s voice yelling for Kirt once she heard his voice. He ran towards the section of the house that had collapsed and saw his mother and brother Sean McMurray there trying to lift a obviously too heavy wooden support beam and his father pinned underneath. Turning off his powers he ran to help his mother try and lift the beam, but saw the that his father was already dead as he was impaled on another beam. Horrified he grabbed his mom and turned her away. She looked at her sons holding their faces in her hands crying.
He’s a nurse, studying to become a doctor, but nothing prepares you for this. He could see patients all day. Handle the sick and dying, but seeing a family member a beloved one dead, especially you father… nothing ever prepares you for that. Kirt had to be strong… wanted to be strong he is a hero for the city, for the people, but he couldn’t… he gave in and held his brother and mother.
With the aid of Rampart they were able to free Jacob McMurray and give him a burial under the old oak tree in the back yard.
Updating his mom and brother on the situations around the world and about Heather. “Mom… Sean.. I will be back, try and make it to my place. ”/campaigns/the-freedom-five/characters/judith-gilmore" class=“wiki-content-link”>Judith Gilmore and Adam McMurray are there. I need to find Heather McMurray father, brother, and his lover yet." After a tearful embrace he left with Rampart again.
Trying to locate Heather McMurray‘s parent’s home was near impossible as the neighborhood where their house once stood now was a sinkhole. Seeing people struggling trying to help others and dig people out. Wire and Rampart landed and started to help with the rescue efforts and to their surprise they found Paul Gilmore there, Heather McMurray’s brother. He was covered in mud and trying to help a woman out from a hole.
Paul Gilmore working with Wire and Rampart went to the area where his parents house once stood, but it was in a shambled mess collapsed, but several houses across the way still stood, but heavily damaged. Searching the area, but finding nothing they started to look for other survivors in neighboring houses, where they found Derek Gilmore assisting a neighbor with several children who had gotten hurt.
Wire somewhat revealed assisted with first aid and told Paul Gilmore and Derek Gilmore to gather at his place.
Paul Gilmore pulled Wire aside and asked him to try and find Tobey Renolds, Paul Gilmore partner. Wire agreed to help, but after hours of looking at where Tobey Renolds and Paul Gilmore lived they couldn’t find anything. With the city in this much disarray maybe he will turn up eventually, or maybe not.
He wonders about his familu over seas in the UK, and in Wales, but at least his immediate family here is taken care of.
Returning to Paul Gilmore who is now at Wire’s place with the others he told him not to give up and that rescue efforts and survivors are popping up all the time and not to give up hope. Giving him a quick embrace and saying farewell to his family and extended family he took off with Rampart back to headquarters and work when they are called to a near by jetliner crash landing to assist in first aid and rescue efforts.
