A former minor league hockey player who moved to Astro City in 1988. He bounced around from odd job to odd job until he landed work as a Doorman at the Astro City Classic Hotel. Initially, he had neutral feelings about living in Astro City with all of the heroes, villains and other assorted supernatural happenings, until one night he wandered down the wrong alley. Ragged Tom and his Ragamuffins were ready to pounce on Pete, when the Confessor came to his rescue. The incident shook Pete. He decided he was going to leave Astro City pronto, once he had enough money to set down roots elsewhere.
But in 1991, on the verge of having the funds to leave, an ancient tribe of demi-gods called the Destructoids awoke and rampaged through Astro City. Pete saved a young girl from falling debris during the giant demi-gods battle with Honor Guard. While it re-aggravated his old hockey injury and forced him to use a cane, the experience gave Pete a new insight about this metropolis called Astro City. In that moment, it had become his city and in a very special way.
Today Pete serves as the senior Doorman at the Classic. He likes to look out for and take care of the newcomers, pointing them to tourist spots, as well as keeping tabs on media reports about the latest exciting super-heroic hot spots and danger zones.
None. But he is very polite. That might be a power of sorts after all. Perhaps one of the best.
