In 2033, industrialist Vincent McMangold developed a project to create an army of super soldier created from his own DNA. McMangold chosen number of women to be the surrogate mothers of his cloned children, one of them being his own employee, scientist Felicia Carter. Jean Curtiz was also forced to join the project as the children's doctor--as she afraid that McMangold would threaten her family if she declined or telling everyone about his project.
As an infant, Bryan was code-named MC-008 or simply called #008. Jean and Felicia, didn't want McMangold to exploit the cloned children, attempted to freed the children and escape the facility. However, Bryan's loud crying alerting the guards, causing him to be the only one who freed. Felicia and Bryan managed to escape, but Jean was getting hit by the tasers--even though she survived as well.
At some point, Felicia and Bryan met Jefferson Schmidt, who later became Bryan's step-father, who loved Bryan just like his own.
At age 11, Bryan became an orphan after his step-father and mother died by cancer and accident respectively. Bryan was living at an orphanage up until he became a college student.
At some points of his college life, Bryan met a woman named Mikhaela Rogers and began to dating. However, Bryan heard some bad rumors about her which made Bryan uncomfortable. Despite this, Bryan still tried to believe in Mikhaela.
Unfortunately for him, the rumors turned out to be true as Bryan discovered that Mikhaela was cheating and pregnant with someone else. Enraged and disappointed, Bryan promptly ended his relationship with Mikhaela.
In 2054, after graduated from the university, Bryan left the orphanage and started a journey to became a cameraman, taking pictures of the entire nation with his camera.
In 2056, Bryan, now 23 year old, arrived in Pleasantview (formerly known as Sunset Valley). Just three days in the town and he started to have financial problem and decided to seek a job, wishing that he would be hired as a freelance photographer.
Bryan met and befriend several folks in the town, including Christine Redfield, the daughter of rock star Christoper James Redfield. Soon, Bryan reunited with Mikhaela, who was still in love with him and trying to "rekindle" relationship, which Bryan dismissed.
Soon, both Bryan and Christine learned about the presence of a a serial killer in the town. Christine asked Bryan to work together in order to solve the case. Unfortunately, Bryan and Christine's apparent "close relationship" made Mikhaela jealous as she hired two criminals to kidnap Christine.
With help from Christine's cousins, Bryan was able to locate where Mikhaela hold Christine and rescue her while Mikhaela and her hired criminals were sent to the prison. Shortly after this incident, Bryan continued his investigation on the Pleasantview Killer. Several days later, when visiting the hospital, Bryan attempted to help Jean with her belongings when he discovered a photograph of a woman who had similar face with his later mother, "Joyce". Bryan questioned Jean about this, and eventually found out the truth about his origin as well as the true identity of "Joyce" Schmidt, who was revealed to be a scientist named Felicia Carter, and Vincent McMangold, his TRUE father.
