Introduction
Obligatory background story with drama and purple prose:
They were high school sweethearts, Malkah Stern and Ariel “Arik” Mitzna. Both entered IDF around the same time for mandatory service. Malkah served the minimum two years, in a clerical support position. Arik did not. He was good at it, he enjoyed it. He managed to get into the Sayeret Matkal special forces reconnaissance unit. After his three years was up he took the career path.
Malkah worked part time and raised their young family, increasingly dissatisfied with Arik’s long absences. Sometimes they would fight, but they always made up.
After serving with Sayeret Matkal, Arik managed to get into Mossad, into the Kidon department. His work took a darker turn, but he was even better at it.
His fights with Malkah came less frequently, but the silence was worse somehow. Arik’s training revealed all the signs, but for some reason this was his blind spot. What should have been obvious was not, he was blindsided when Malkah left him. She’d been having an affair with one of her coworkers.
Arik was hurt, and maybe it was anger that pushed him into retaliating with an affair of his own with Sara Braun, another member of the Kidon. Over the ensuing years Sara and Arik have had a tumultuous relationship, often apart and only occasionally together.
November 23rd, 20XX. A mission. That day Arik saw something, something happened, something he’s never talked about. People know that the target was Hamza Haniyeh a leader of Al Emraqebh, and since Haniyeh is still around something must of gone wrong. Arik was out of communication for about 3 crucial minutes, out of sight of the rest of the team. Sara speculates in private, noting that Hamza’s children were also on site, and they are all around as well. Did Arik tip them off? Did he blow the mission?
Whatever happened, Mossad accepted Arik’s resignation without protest. Some men may be nothing more than mad dogs, but he’ll be the one calling the shots from now on. Some nights when something, some sound or smell, half heard snippet of conversation reminds Arik of that night, he wonders when he shall become the mad dog, or is he already?

In the time since leaving Mossad, Arik has been living in Vienna, Austria. His apartment is modest and draughty, but the high frescoed ceilings echo the former grandeur of his apartment building overlooking the Spielplatz on Innstraße. A nearby car park holds a ten year old Volkswagen Jetta TDI stationwagon, well maintained and fueled.
Arik lives and dresses modestly, but has managed to squirrel away several bank accounts and caches.
At least once a year preferably around the early December he visits his townhouse in Tel Aviv for a vacation, where he doesn’t need to be looking over his shoulder. It offers a chance to reconnect with friends and family.
