History

Percival attended some of the finest military academies in England as a young man to follow his family's expectations that he become a fine military officer. However, he became bored of the military and spent his time womanising and partying. He fell behind in his studies and was eventually asked for his resignation. His older brother remained at the academy, but Percival left his family, ashamed to face them again. When World War II broke out, Percival enlisted and became a commando at the rank of private.

Pervical was sent to the Howling Commandos as a replacement for their deceased member, Jonathan Juniper. Although they were initially skeptical if Percy had the makings of a Howler, he quickly proved himself on their mission to stop Baron Heinrich Zemo who had created a death-ray. Percy continued to serve the Howlers with distinction for the remainder of the war.

Later, the Howlers (Howling Commandos) were called back to service in the Korean War, Pinkerton was a sergeant as were all the other former private soldiers of the unit. At the time of their 1966 Vietnam War mission Pinkerton was managing a Playboy Club in London.

As with several other of the Howling Commandos, Pinkerton briefly joined SHIELD as a favour to Nick Fury after the attack of the Deltites.
