    Character background

    Bradley in Justus' dream

    Born in Norfolk, Virginia and raised by his mother, Mary Mae Ward, and step-father Dan Ward,[6][7] Bradley died believing he was the son of a soldier who died at war. His mother and step-father moved the family to Port Charles, New York. Bradley married Isobel and together they had two children Justus (1967) and Faith (1969).

    The fiery Bradley had been elected to the State Assembly and began causing trouble for billionaire Edward Quartermaine and his dirty partner Jack Boland.

    To get Bradley off their back, Edward's partners, Lee Baldwin and Jack, dug up some dirt on the young politician and reverend. But Bradley didn't back off, he came fighting for change. Bradley had also been causing trouble for mob boss Frank Smith whom Jack was secretly working with. In the early hours of July 1, 1974, Boland came to Bradley's house, shot and killed him. Jack planted the gun in his hand making Mary Mae believe he'd committed suicide.

    Mary Mae, assuming it was her fault for not telling them the truth, buried his body in the backyard of their home, 24 Royal Street in Port Charles. In June 1994, his body was discovered and Edward was put on trial for his murder. Mary Mae revealed that Edward was in fact Bradley's father and could have never murdered him.
