John Reese was ambushed at his home after being under surveillance for months by the Humanoid Intelligence. Even though he was rescued by the HRF2 (Human Resistance Force 2) team, he sustained critical injuries and was in a coma for 6 months. Upon his awakening, he discovered that his wife and unborn baby were killed in the ambush. Vowing vengeance, John Reese continues to fight the Humanoid Intelligence. He wears his dead wife's bloody scarf into every battle as a reminder. HRF2 was formed nine years after the X2 war (9 A.X2). It was the biggest resistance force since X-War. It consisted of human rebels from all 76 sectors, fighting the humanoids at each sectors with the final destination to defeat Sector 13.
Truth be told, John Reese looks like he's part of the Devil Toys War of Order Vol. 1 team. Devil Toys released their Secret Master 1/6th scale collectible figure back in 2015 (check out the action figure review posted on my toy blog HERE and HERE) and both figures look very similar and almost identical. What caught my eye was the other figure also showcased: Corporal Joel Hagan. See the pictures at the bottom of this post.

Joel's mates and colleagues of the 1st and 7th Precinct NYPD were killed when their HQ building was destroyed by multiple car bombs followed by synchronised attacks resulting in a total wipeout of police personnel. Being the only survivor and burdened by guilt of not being there with his "brothers", Joel realised that the only way to avenge his fallen brothers was by joining HRF and bring the fight to the Humanoids.
