Kip Epps served in the United States Army during the Iraq War. He lost a testicle while serving in Iraq, prompting the nickname “Half Sack”. A surprisingly formidable fighter, he was also the Junior Lightweight Champion of the Armed Forces boxing competition. After leaving the military, he began prospecting for the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club and worked as a mechanic at Teller-Morrow Automotive Repair. He was also a vegetarian.
He is a prospective member of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club, which often results in hazing and him being given undesirable tasks. The other members generally have a good-natured attitude towards Half Sack when giving him these difficult tasks.
