Walter “Walt” Hartwell White Sr., also known by his clandestine pseudonym “Heisenberg“, was a chemist and a former chemistry teacher in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who, after being diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, started manufacturing crystal methamphetamine to both pay for his treatments and provide for his family in the event of his passing.

Once a promising chemist who greatly contributed to the breakthrough of a multi-billion dollar company Gray Matter Technologies, Walt abruptly left the company and sold his financial interest for $5,000. The founders of the company Elliott Schwartz and Gretchen Schwartz later married and made a fortune.

Knowing nothing about the drug trade, he enlisted the aid of his former student, Jesse Pinkman, to manufacture and, more importantly, sell his meth. Walt’s scientific knowledge and dedication to quality lead him to produce crystal meth of unrivaled purity. While Walt was initially squeamish about the use of violence, he gradually came to see it as a necessity and eventually developed into a ruthless drug lord motivated largely by vanity, ego, and greed. As the series progresses, Walter gradually becomes darker and takes on a more villainous role. (Source: Wikipedia)
