Flint shared a past as a criminal with Zurich. Flint was involved in extortion and murders which were lead by Zurich. Years later, Flint had retired from his former business and settled with his daughter. He owned a piece of land up north and looked after the lumber mill.
Sometime during 2009, Flint was visited by a man calling himself Jack. Jack claimed to be a writer and wanted to rent one of Flint's cabins. Although, Jack was Alex Mercer who had disguised himself in order to stay in hiding.
Flint and his daughter did not bother Mercer as they thought he was writing a book. Occasionally, they would invite Mercer to have dinner with them. Flint would sit at a distance and watch his daughter play chess with Alex.
