---THE CHARACTERS---

SOLID SNAKE [SNK1]

(voiced by David Hayter)

Solid Snake's real name is Dave and he has an IQ of 180. He is a 
highly trained, elite soldier with a personal preference for 
parachuting, S.C.U.B.A diving, free climbing, rappelling, small and 
medium range handguns, and various hand-to-hand combat techniques. 
 
Snake is a living legend.  A former elite soldier serving in the 
special FOX-HOUND unit, Snake is a past master of silent 
infiltration.  He first demonstrated his unique skills in the Outer 
Heaven crisis, defeating Big Boss and the Metal Gear robot.  

Not long afterwards, he voluntarily left FOX-HOUND. He was then 
recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency as a non-official covert 
operative. His affiliation with the CIA didn't last long as there was 
a conflict in philosophies and Snake ultimately found himself 
fighting the system that is the CIA. After this, Snake spent some 
years as a mercenary before leaving for the deep wilderness of the 
Canadian mountains for self-rehabilitation. It was there, four years 
later, that he was contacted by his former commander, Roy Campbell 
and in to assist in the Zanzibar Land Revolt. 

In the Zanzibar Land Revolt, Snake found himself up against Big Boss 
and Metal Gear again.  During the mission, Snake has to defeat his 
friend and former comrade in Outer Heaven, Grey Fox, as well as 
killing his own father  - Big Boss.  Snake had been cloned from Big 
Boss's DNA, making him the perfect fighter, from Big Boss's soldier 
genes.

After Zanzibar, Snake retreats to Alaska, to live in solitude.  It is 
here that he pursues a frugal lifestyle in the Alaskan Mountains, an 
elementary existence living off the local flora and fauna and the 
wild animals he hunts. Blending in to his environment, he has become 
at one with his surroundings mastering the rough conditions of the 
great outdoor. Snake has been suffering post-traumatic stress 
disorder following his military career. Abnormal experiences and 
extreme trauma in the battlefield have brought about illusions as 
well as guilt, causing mental confusion. His new lifestyle is a 
search for some kind of inner peace, an attempt to forget about past 
events. Snake also participates in dog sleigh racing to distract him 
from his psychological condition. He was preparing for the world's 
longest and toughest dog sleigh race taking place in Iditarod, before 
Shadow Moses.. 

Six years after Zanzibar, Snake is called up again by former FOX-
HOUND commander (at Zanzibar) Colonel Campbell.  Snake was called in 
to deal with hostage takers on Shadow Moses Island; rebelling FOX-
HOUND members, led by Snake's brother, Liquid Snake, who was also 
cloned from Big Boss.  Snake succeeded in destroying Metal Gear REX  
- a nuclear equipped walking battle robot - and eliminating the 
terrorist threat, with the assistance of Grey Fox, who was being kept 
alive via a cyborg suit, and the designer of Metal Gear REX, Hal 
"Otacon" Emmerich.

After Shadow Moses, Snake and Otacon formed an anti-Metal Gear 
organisation, "Philanthropy", to combat Metal Gear development.  They 
received information about a Metal Gear on the tanker "Discovery" - 
Metal Gear RAY, developed by the US Marines.  RAY is then stolen, the 
tanker destroyed, Snake is blamed for acts of terrorism, and is 
reportedly killed in the explosion that sunk the tanker.

But Snake survived, via the help of Otacon and then enters the Big 
Shell, again after reports of a new Metal Gear - Arsenal Gear - is 
being developed there.  He works firstly under the alias "Iroquois 
Pliskin" (see below) to aid Raiden (see below). 

RAIDEN [RAI1]

(voiced by Quinton Flynn)
 
Raiden (real name: Jack) was born in a house near New York City. When 
he was around 3 his house was raided by American soldiers and Solidus 
Snake. His parents were killed and he was taken by Solidus to a 
Training Camp for kids. When he was 5 he went into the Civil War in 
the small child unit. The child soldiers were being raised on 
Hollywood action movies and had gunpowder put in their food, as it 
contained hallucinogens to keep them drugged and controllable. He was 
a brutal fighter and quickly earned several nicknames including 
'White Devil' and 'Jack the Ripper'.  He killed many people and was 
the best at what he did. He was great with a gun (holding his first 
AK at age 6) and killed almost 50 men every time he went out.  When 
the war ended he was sent to an orphanage in America where a couple 
adopted him. He grew up and eventually forgot his horrid past. He 
lived in New York City where on April 30 he met a woman named 
Rosemary. She was serving as a tour guide to make some extra money. 
When they got to the Chrysler building Rose said it was the one King 
Kong climbed in the movie. Raiden said that it was the Empire State 
Building that King Kong climbed. They began to argue until they ended 
up back at his apartment. They've been steadily dating through that 
time until after the mission. During the mission Raiden becomes the 
main character throughout the Plant chapter. In the end he killed 
Solidus and after it proposed to Rose who was carrying his child.

Raiden is very closed about his past, and won't tell anyone about it. 
Apart from that, he will be open and curious about everything in the 
mission, except when The Patriots are concerned, and then he gets 
angry about not being told about them. He is usually warm to most 
people he likes, and gets on easily with them. He is a loyal fighter, 
and will often try to help people.

OTACON [OTA1]

(voiced by Christopher Randolph)

Otacon's real name is Hal Emmerich, his nickname stands for Otaku 
Convention and refer's to his love for Japanese anime films.  He did 
not attend school but studied through the internet and matriculated 
at MIT. He earned his PhD from Princeton University whilst 
simultaneously developing a program to solve the Millenuim Bug (the 
year 2000 digit changing problem in computers). This earned him much 
attention as the saviour of the computer world, although he earned no 
money from his research. Whilst in college he developed his passion 
for robotics and invented a radio controlled drone, which he called 
Metal Gear MX2. He was recruited by the FBI to the Engineering 
Research Facility (ERF) and was fired for hacking into restricted 
areas if the FBI's brain-centre. He was then offered a job at 
ArmsTech Inc. where he furthered development of Metal Gear as an MTMD 
(Mobile Theatre Missile Defence). He was not aware of the Rail Gun 
Unit nor of the new nuclear warhead planned for Metal Gear. 

During Shadow Moses, Snake convinced Otacon that his research was 
being used to design a weapon of mass destruction, and Otacon began 
to support Snake against the terrorists.  Otacon, along with Snake, 
now devote themselves to countering the threat posed by Metal Gear.  
Their organisation "Philanthrophy" is financed by anonymous donors, 
and was recently recognised by the United Nations - "recognised, but 
still fringe".

Otacon's family seems to be cursed with nuclear development, his 
grandfather was involved in the development of the atom bomb, his 
father was born on the same day as the atom bomb on Hiroshima, Otacon 
himself developed the nuclear equipped Metal Gear REX, and his 
sister, Emma, programmed the A.I (called GW) for the new Metal Gear  
- Arsenal Gear.

Otacon provides Snake with support during his mission on the tanker 
"Discovery", using the Codec, providing advice for the situation.  He 
is also a talented hacker with the ability to infiltrate top secret 
military networks, including the Pentagon, which is where he 
confirmed the existence of Metal Gear RAY.  The original information 
came from an anonymous tip from "E.E", Otacon's name for his sister 
Emma, but this story was deliberately planted by Ocelot, as a way of 
getting Snake to the tanker.

REVOLVER OCELOT [OCE1]

(voiced by Patric Zimmerman)

The Russian is a former FOX-HOUND member, and during the Cold War he 
was part of the feared Spetsnaz, a secret Soviet Army unit associated 
with post-Stalinist concentration camps.  He is dubbed "Shalashaska".  
His speciality is brutal interrogation, and he tortured Snake during 
Shadow Moses.  He is also skilled in his markmanship, and uses an 
antique army revolver - The Colt Single Action Army. He is a 
formidable gunfighter, known to hit his target by calculating the 
ricochet angle, maximising the use of the bullets. 

After the fall of the Soviet Union, he joined the Russian Police 
Storming Party. Then he served in the Special Tactics Division of the 
SVR, formally the KGB. However he did not adapt well to the new KGB 
system and was recruited by the US to join FOX-HOUND.


While it seemed that Ocelot was working with Liquid Snake during 
Shadow Moses, he was a double agent, working for the US President at 
the time George Sears aka Solidus Snake (see below), and also acted 
as a spy for the Patriots.  During Snake's interrogation, Ocelot took 
the disc containing the data on Metal Gear REX from Snake (who was 
given the disc by Kenneth Baker, the president of ArmsTech, who 
developed Metal Gear REX.  Ocelot escaped with this disc and sold the 
specifications of Metal Gear on the international black market, 
leading to almost every organisation across the globe having their 
own type of Metal Gear.

During Shadow Moses, Ocelot had his lower right arm cut off by the 
Ninja, Grey Fox.  After escaping he went to France and had Liquid 
Snake's (who had died from FOXDIE at Shadow Moses) arm grafted onto 
his own.  Now whenever Ocelot comes near Solid Snake, the arm appears 
to develop a life of it's own, and Liquid Snake takes over Ocelot's 
mind.

Ocelot was working with Sergei Gurlukovich when he and his troops 
overtook the tanker, saying that he was going to sell Metal Gear RAY 
to Gurlukovich in order to restore "Mother Russia".  But Ocelot turns 
his back on Sergei, killing him.  Ocelot then steals RAY, and takes 
it to the Patriots, who mass produce RAY's to protect Arsenal Gear.

During the Big Shell incident, Ocelot works with Solidus Snake, but 
at the end Ocelot is taken over by Liquid Snake, who believes that by 
living in Ocelot's body will give him the information he needs 
against the Patriots.  Ocelot escapes again, on a Metal Gear RAY, 
intending to find the Patriots via the MO Disc taken from Raiden 
(given to him by Snake).  But the disc Ocelot has is a dummy, Snake 
kept the original.

SOLIDUS SNAKE [SNK2]

(voiced by John Cygan)

Solidus Snake is also known as George Sears, the 43rd US President.  
He is the third product of the "Les Enfants Terribles" (The Terrible 
Children), cloned from Big Boss along with his brothers, Solid Snake 
and Liquid Snake.  It was on his orders that Ocelot attempted to 
steal Metal Gear REX at Shadow Moses.  He was forced to resign the 
presidency after Ocelot's failure to control Metal Gear REX.  Solidus 
rebelled against the control and manipulation that Patriots has over 
the public.  He led the take over of the Big Shell as the Sons of 
Liberty with the Dead Cell members, Ocelot, Olga and her mercenaries 
she overtook control after the death of her father aboard 
"Discovery".  

Solidus commanded and trained the child soldier unit that Raiden was 
a member of as a young boy.  Solidus also killed Raiden's parents and 
adopted Raiden as his son.  Solidus and Raiden were used in the S3 
Plan due to their similar relationship to that of Solid Snake and Big 
Boss.  

In the final fight between Solidus and his foster son, Raiden, he 
claimed he never sought personal power and wanted to issue a new 
declaration of independence out of the control of the Patriots.  He 
wanted to force the Patriots to give back basic freedoms and civil 
rights and the principles that the United States were based on, and 
he thinks these are the very things that the Patriots intend to get 
rid of with digital censorship.  After the battle, Solidus is killed 
by Raiden.

FORTUNE [FTN]

(voiced by Maula Gale)

Fortune's real name is Helena Dolph Jackson, wife of Colonel Jackson 
(the original leader of Dead Cell) and daughter of Commander Scott 
Dolph (head of the Metal Gear RAY project). Six months after her 
fathers death at the hands of Revolver Ocelot her mother commits 
suicide, her husband is arrested for misappropriating funds and 
herself, three months pregnant, suffers a miscarriage.  She joins the 
military and after basic training she was credited with several 
nicknames least of all 'Lady Luck', bullets slide off her and she is 
a skilled warrior with a Rail Gun only she can use. Some say she sold 
her soul but she herself says that her military prowess is payback 
for the lousy luck she has been dealt in life. With her skills she 
was handed the leadership of her husband's unit Dead Cell. 

There, she became close to Vamp and as Plisken says "not exactly 
lovers but more than friends", Vamp calls her Queen.  Blaming Snake 
for her fathers death she is constantly waiting to die, and for 
someone to put her out of her misery. She was planning to double 
cross Solidus and steal Arsenal Gear.  At the end of the game it was 
revealed that as Ocelot puts it "You have nothing that we have not 
given you". He reveals that Fortunes "luck" is no other than an 
electric device that alters the path of bullets. She is then shot by 
Ocelot in left side of the chest.  But she survives as her heart is 
on the right side.  Fortune then unleashes a volley from her Rail Gun 
but the same "luck" that once covered her now protects Ocelot.  She 
saves the lives of Snake, Solidus and Raiden by  diverting RAY's 
payload from them, seeming that she was Lady Luck after all. After 
RAY has stopped firing, Fortune gets her wish and slumps forward 
dead.

VAMP [VAM1]

(voiced by Phil La Marr)

Vamp was born in Romania, and whilst still a child, the church he and 
his family were in was destroyed by a terrorist's bomb.  Trapped 
under the rubble for two days and pierced by a crucifix he quenched  
his thirst by drinking the blood of his parents.  He joined Dead Cell 
with his speciality  in knives.  Through graceful movement and speed 
bullets don't seem to touch him.  Armed only with throwing knives and 
a large bowie knife he single handedly  wipes out SEAL team 10. He 
has the codename Vamp, not due to his blood sucking pastime, but for 
the fact that he is bisexual, with Commander Scott Dolph, Fortune's 
father, being his lover.

He is shot in the head and stomanch by Raiden's bullets, deflecting 
off Fortune, but survives, saying he can't die twice. Later Vamp 
pilots the Harrier 2 in Raiden's first fight with Solidus.  After the 
plane is shot down Vamp is seen running across the water and up one 
of the struts of the Big Shell. Vamp again walks and dances on water 
before his fight with Raiden.  He tells Raiden about Arsenal Gear's 
new missile - a purified hydrogen bomb - he then attacks Raiden, but 
it apparently killed for good.  But later he stabs Emma Emmerich 
while crossing the oil fence, eventually killing her. Vamp is again 
shot several times in the head, sending backwards into the sea, 
seemingly for his final death.  But in the ending cutscene with 
Raiden and Snake, Vamp is still alive, seen standing next to a cab in 
the street (zoom in with R1 when Raiden takes off his dog tag).
 
FATMAN [FAT1]

(voiced by Barry Dennen)

Son of a clockmaker and neglected by his parents and peers, Fatman 
spent a lot of his young years with a fascination for clockwork. At 
the age of ten after reading a guidebook on the internet he built an 
atomic bomb. Very vain about his hands he never liked them to be 
still, if he wasn't giving himself a manicure he would be 
disassembling and then reassembling his Glock pistol. Whilst 
attending Indian Head he was taught by the 'best in the world' Peter 
Stillman in all things regarding explosives. He absorbed all that 
Stillman had to offer and was considered to be most talented. Living 
only by his own rules he followed this creed like a religion.  Hated 
and shunned by his classmates and while 20% of the students flunked 
out he got very high marks. After leaving Indian Head he got a job in 
the Nucular Emergency Search Team (NEST) where he quickly got into 
trouble (Stillman says that he was never really cut out for that kind 
of job). After NEST, Dead Cell recruited him into their ranks. When 
Dead Cell got liquidated Fatman says that it set him free, but it 
seemed to push him over the edge. Fatman considers himself to be an 
artist and after killing Stillman considers that blowing up the Big 
Shell will start his 'legend' and that it will also make THEM happy.  
He fights Raiden while riding around on roller blades, saying he will 
be the most famous bomber of them all.  Later it is revealed by 
Ocelot that Fatman was a test for Raiden as part of S3 and the only 
reason Fatman came along is because they got Peter Stillman out of 
retirement.

OLGA GURLUKOVICH [OLG1]

(voiced by Vanessa Marshall)

Olga is the daughter of Sergei Gurlukovich, the Russian Commander, 
who was trying to hijack Metal Gear RAY.  He was in alliance with 
Shalashaska, a.k.a, Revolver Ocelot. At this time, his daughter Olga 
was pregnant; the father was unknown. Sergei told her to leave, as 
the mission was too dangerous, and her child's life was at stake. She 
secretly stayed behind, and had an encounter with Solid Snake. They 
duelled each other, Olga having lost, but not killed. After, Ocelot 
betrayed Sergei and assassinated him, along with the Marine Commander 
Scott Dolph. Ocelot sank the tanker and they along with it. Solid 
Snake survived, and saved Olga's life, but she was never aware of it. 
For years she believed Solid Snake had murdered her father, and 
joined a Russian Mafia like terrorist group to get revenge. She 
immediately became the Commander of her group, leading from her 
fathers death. She joined an alliance with Ocelot (not knowing that 
he was the real murderer) and Solidus Snake. She finally met Snake 
once more in the Big Shell facility and they fought.  She then found 
out the truth and joined him. Olga was then targeted as a puppet for 
the Patriots, and was forced to help their "test subject", Raiden, 
succeed in killing Solidus.  She was threatened the loss of her 
child, which the Patriots took hostage of in the hospital where the 
baby was born.  If she refused, the child would die.  She has never 
met her child and is sent a picture of it every month.. She took on 
the disguise as the Ninja to help her keep cover, and secretly help 
Raiden, as his nanomachines monitor his vital signs.  If Raiden is 
killed, Olga's baby dies.  Olga dies while protecting Raiden, after 
revealing her true identity to the terrorists.


SERGEI GURLUKOVICH [SER1]

(voiced by Earl Boen)

A former colonel in the GRU, the Soviet Secret Service, Sergei 
Gurlukovich grew up on the nuclear research station, Chelyabinsk-70.  
After the Cold War, his home was bought out by the Americans.  
Following the fall of the Soviet Union, Sergei established a private 
army with the aim of restoring Mother Russia to her former glory.  
Gurlukovich was planning on buying Metal Gear off Ocelot to achieve 
this aim.  Despite his lust for power, he still has concern for his 
daughter Olga.  Before RAY is taken, Sergei is shot by Ocelot.

EMMA EMMERICH [EMA1]

(voiced by Jennifer Gale)

Emma's full name is Emma Emmerich Danziger. Danziger was her mother's 
maidens name, but she prefers Emmerich. She is Otacon's step sister. 
At a young age, Emma's father died, and they moved to England. There, 
Emma's mother met a business man named Robinson, and married. This 
was when she met her step brother Hal (Otacon). They formed an 
inseparable relationship. Soon after, when emma was six years old, 
she and her father were involved in a pool accident. Emma survived, 
but her father drowned. After this incident, it was noted that Emma 
was greatly angered by the fact that her big brother wasn't there to 
help her. It was later discovered that Otacon was being seduced by 
his stepmother at the time.  To make matters worse, this was a time 
that Otacon also chose to leave his family. This move deeply angered 
Emma. Later, she went to Oxford University to follow in the steps of 
her brother. There, she was noted for her high success in the field 
of computers. She was given a job in the NSA, and became a member 
there. She is now regarded as a computer genius.  
 
In the year 2000, the NSA had a total system shutdown for a 27 hour 
period. It was later found out, that this was a mere test to check 
cyber terrorism and also caused the decision to move the facility to 
a safer location, yet unknown. the government used a notorious group 
of hackers to complete this job, and was found out later that one of 
the key members of this group, was none other that Emma Emmerich. 
Knowing that she was the perfect person to complete their projects, 
the government leaked her info. On the Shadow Moses incident in order 
to "convince" her of co-operating, after finding out about Otacon's 
arrival. they played on her weak point, using her strong hate for 
Otacon.  She is now the head programmer for the "GW" system, and was 
in the Big Shell facility to complete the project.

At the Big Shell, she has a parakeet that she talks to "just to have 
someone to talk to".  The parrot replies what is said to it, and it 
is revealed from the parrot that Emma never stopped thinking about 
her brother and seemed to talk to the parrot about him. 

There she helps Raiden, Snake and her brother to download a virus 
similar to FOXDIE into GW's system to shut down the nervous system of 
the AI.  But while on their way to the Computer Room to complete the 
task, Emma is stabbed by Vamp and eventually dies in the hands of her 
brother.

PETER STILLMAN [STI1]

(voiced by Greg Eagles)

Peter Stillman is THE bombs disposal expert.  A lecturer at Indian 
Head, his speciality is bomb disposal,  and it was here that he 
taught Fatman all he knew.  Having no wife or child he took Fatman on 
as a son and poured into him all his knowledge. After Indian Head 
Stillman got a job working with the NYPD bomb squad where five years 
ago they got called out to a bomb in a church. Stillman messed up and 
the bomb exploded killing all those inside as well as some children 
playing nearby, Peter lived but paid a price aparently losing a leg 
to the explosion. But in reality Stillman gave into the fear and 
turned tail and ran, leaving the bomb to explode.  The first thing he 
saw after regaining conscience was the bodies of children lying under 
the rubble of the destroyed church. His first thought one of relief 
that he was alive. His reputation as the best in the world meant more 
to him than atonement for his crime, so he faked his injury to get 
the compassion of the public for his weakness.  The shield of the lie 
turning into a shroud that covered his life thereafter. He also feels 
responsible for teaching Fatman his skill. 

Stillman aids Raiden and Pliskin in riding the Big Shell of Fatman's 
C4.  He tries to defuse the odourless bombs that have been placed at 
the bases of the Shell's.  These bombs are activated after Raiden and 
Pliskin defuses the other C4's, and Stillman triggers them with a 
proximity sensor, blowing him and most of Shell 2 up. 

ROSE [ROS1]

(voiced by Lara Cody)

Rose doesn't play a huge part in the game but she is an important 
character. She basically helps Raiden through the game by saving his 
progress. On April 30 she met a man named Jack who would later be 
known as Raiden. She was serving as a tour guide to make some extra 
money. When they got to the Chrysler building Rose said it was the 
one King Kong climbed in the movie. Raiden said that it was the 
Empire State Building that King Kong climbed. They began to argue 
until they ended up back at Raiden's apartment. They've been steadily 
dating through that time until after the mission in which he proposes 
to her and Rose, who's pregnant with his child, marries him.


PRESIDENT JOHNSON [PREZ]

(voiced by Paul Lukather)

James Johnson, the son of a governor, became President after George 
Sears' resignation.  He was taken hostage by Dead Cell during an 
inspection tour of the Big Shell plant.  His presence was no 
conscience, the terrorists needed the President's vital signs 
willingly in order to arm the nuclear device and Arsenal Gear.  The 
President gave his vital signs in co-operation as he knew of the 
absolute power the Patriots had, and wanted that same power.  He 
intended to use the new Metal Gear as a bargaining chip to blackmail 
the Patriots into giving him a position on the 12 Wiseman's Committee 
- a select group of 12 men who make all the Patriot's decisions.  But 
after revealing the information about the existence of the Patriots 
to Raiden, Johnson is shot by Ocelot, who doesn't need Johnson's 
vital signs, as he never intended to take Arsenal Gear.

AMES [AME1]

(voiced by Pete Renaday)

A Secret Service agent being held hostage by Dead Cell.  Ames is the 
only person who knows where President Johnson was being held in the 
Big Plant.  His ex wife is Nastasha Romenenko, who was Snake's 
military advisor and nuclear analyst during Shadow Moses.  In her 
book "In the Darkness of Shadow Moses: The Unofficial Truth", she 
claims that Major Richard Ames was the true officer in charge of the 
mission and was following the orders of the Patriots.  After Raiden 
has found the location of the President, Ames is killed by the 
Patriots, who switch off his pacemaker.

IROQUOIS PLISKIN [PLI1]

(voiced by David Hayter)

Pliskin is the alias used by Snake at the beginning of the Big Shell 
mission, when he meets Raiden.  Pliskin serves in the Navy SEAL's as 
a Lieutenant Junior Grade.  He doesn't seem a normal Lieutenant as 
SEAL officers give orders via the Command Post and the headphones he 
wears.  Pliskin knows a large amount about FOX-HOUND (as he is 
Snake), and uses Marines and SAS slogans "Semper Fi" and "Who Dares, 
Wins".

COMMANDANT SCOTT DOLPH [DOL1]

(voiced by Kevin M. Richardson)

The Marines Corps Commandant has one aim: to leave the world a better 
place than he found it.  His greatest wish is that his daughter, 
Fortune aka Helena Dolph Jackson, should never experience the horrors 
of nuclear war.  Dolph's hopes are focussed on Metal Gear RAY, which 
he was transporting in the tanker "Discovery".  His Marine Corps, 
along with RAY, intend to put an end to the arms race between the 
Metal Gears in the world.  He is also Vamp's lover.

COLONEL CAMPBELL [CAM1]

(voiced by Paul Eiding)

During the Big Shell episode, Campbell, giving help to Raiden through 
the Codec, is actually A.I, an apparition implanted in Raiden's brain 
via his nanomachines made up by Raiden's experiences and 
expectations, and manipulated by the Patriots.  At the end of the 
game, Campbell, along with an A.I Rose, act as a voice of the 
Patriots, revealing the S3 Plan and the Patriots control over human 
will and consciousness.
