Hi, everybody. My name's Elendraug -- at least online -- and this is my first GameFAQs guide ever. 8D Basically, I've decided to type up the Metal Gear Database that was included as a free download with Metal Gear Solid 4. This is going to take me several days of frantic typing to finish, so I'm posting the first chunk just so nobody else has to end up giving their hands cramps thinking it's not being worked on. I'm not sure if I'm going to do the relationship chart or the timeline just yet; we'll see. A note about the formatting: I've used ten hyphens (----------) to indicate a break between different entries. One hyphen (-) indicates that in the entry itself there was a horizontal rule (the <hr> tag) to separate information. In some places it looks like this was done to divide real-life info from fictional in-world material, and in others, spoiler-free content from spoilers. A double line break like this: I've used to indicate that a new "page" has started. This was mostly done, it seems, to break up information by time period. For example, in Big Boss' entry, we start with his involvement in Operation Snake Eater and then move on to more recent activity. I've also decided to leave out crosslinking between entries; it was getting too cluttered to write the bracketed search keys after every single item that has its own entry. Eventually, I'll be posting this guide on my LiveJournal, where the <a name> function will allow me to make it prettier, but until then, this will have to do. Quite obviously, this guide contains MAJOR SPOILERS. I'll say it again: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ / \ ( M | A | J | O | R ) ( S | P | O | I | L | E | R | S | ! ) \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ Don't read this thing unless you've finished the game! It's got spoilers for pretty much everything... I don't think it touches METAL GEAR AC!D, but it DOES contain spoilers for Metal Gear Portable Ops on PSP, which I was kind of surprised to find out. So, yeah. Don't accidentally ruin the games' stories for yourself. To navigate this guide more easily, I've included those CTRL+F search key thingers that I've seen other guide-makers use before. Press the CTRL key and the F key at the same time, then enter those. For example, Revolver Ocelot's entry is [PE097], so you'd type that, or even just the PE097 without the brackets. Technically, you could just search for his name, but that'd end up digging through all the other entries that mention him, as well. Hopefully you'll figure it out. :3 Also obviously, all of the material in this is © KONAMI and Hideo Kojima. I'm not making any money off this; I want to have it as an easily accessible reference for myself, and may as well share it with everyone else, too, especially the many MGS fans out there who can't afford a PS3 just yet but want to look up all the details about the life and times of Emma Emmerich. :B Feel free to share this guide with anybody you'd like; just don't be a jerk and claim it as your own. It's giving me hand cramps, back pain, and eyestrain to get this all into a .txt file, so at least give credit where it's due, yeah? Thanks to my roommate for letting me hook up the PS3 to her TV and sit on her bed while compiling this; mine's too far across my room to see easily. Danke! Thanks to my awesome friends who got me into this series and have fangirled it with me. You guys rock. <333 Thanks to Hideo Kojima, Yoji Shinkawa, Harry Gregson-Williams, and everyone else at KONAMI (or wherever) who helped out with any of the games. I love this series with all of my heart, and I'm glad to be contributing back in any way that I can. :D Also thanks to http://www.network-science.de/ascii/ for their incredibly convenient ASCII-art generator. I used "big" and "bubble" for this. Also thanks to the developers of Dev-C++, which I used as the text editor for the guide. Having the right 79-character margin visible was incredibly useful. If I made a stupid typo or you just have questions about wtf I'm doing, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. It'd probably help if you made the subject line having SOMETHING to do with this guide, so I know what it is you're emailing me about. I check my inbox constantly, so there's a good chance I'll see it. Enjoy! _______________________________________________________________________________ [[A NOTE ABOUT HOSTING THIS GUIDE]] I've had several people contact me asking to put this guide on websites other than GameFAQs. Feel free to let me know about your site, but know I won't be uploading this guide anywhere else until it's completely finished, just for the sake of keeping this project in one place while it's a work in progress. Thanks for the interest, though! I really appreciate it. _______________________________________________________________________________ [[VERSION HISTORY]] [06.27.2008] - [Version 0.10] - All entry names typed up and labelled.

\_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ [[ E N T R I E S ]] ---------- [PE001] [ADAM] A former NSA codebreaker, one of two who defected to the Soviet Union in a notorious 1960 incident. The other defector was EVA (not the same EVA that appears in the story). At the time of Operation Snake Eater in 1964, ADAM was dispatched as a spy by the Soviet KGB to provide aid to the American agent infiltrating the country. However, ADAM failed to make contact with the agent, Naked Snake, and EVA was sent to make contact with him instead. The woman calling herself EVA at Groznyj Grad was actually a spy for Communist China. The KGB man calling himself ADAM was in reality Adamska (Ocelot), who was simultaneous spying for both the Soviet KGB and the American CIA. ---------- [PE002] [Adamska] Revolver Ocelot's first name. Russian in origin. His American name is Adam. ---------- [PE003] [Akiba] Member of Rat Patrol 01. Real name Johnny. He earned the nickname "Akiba" due to his love of Tokyo's world famous Akihabara electronics district, which is commonly referred to as "Akiba" by regular visitors. His entire body is covered with wearable computers. Using a wrist-mounted keyboard and a goggle monitor, he specializes in scouting, patrolling, record keeping, data analysis, explosives, and traps. Always wears a ski mask. Akiba suffers from irritable bowel syndrome and, due to his lack of nanomachines, also consumes local water without normal nanomachine filtration. This causes his diarrhea and cramps to become particularly bad during missions. The youngest member of the Johnny military family tree. His grandfather helped guard Groznyj Grad as a member of the GRU. ---------- [PE004] [Alan Shepherd] America's first astronaut. Formerly a Navy test pilot, he was asked by NASA to join the Light Staff, a group of astronauts. In 1961's Mercury project "Mercury 3 (Freedom 7)," he successfully returned from 15 minutes and 28 seconds of orbital flight, making him the first American to reach space according to official record. He later participated in the Gemini and Apollo projects, and rode the Apollo 14 shuttle, making him the 5th human to set foot on the moon. He is often remembered for having humorously played golf on the lunar surface. - During the 1964 Operation Snake Eater, Naked Snake infiltrated the Soviet Union from the air via a cutting-edge supersonic fighter jet. Zero teasingly suggested that using a top-secret fighter craft in a real op was a feat on par with Alan Shepherd's accomplishment. Naked Snake was dropped from the craft in mid-air at a speed exceeding Mach 3, falling to earth inside a drone. ---------- [PE005] [ArmsTech President] Kenneth Baker. ---------- [PE006] [Big Boss] The former commander of FOXHOUND and military leader of Outer Heaven and Zanzibarland. His former codename in the FOX Unit was Naked Snake. Real name John. He fought in the Korean War in the 1950s. He looked up to The Boss as his mentor, and together they developed CQC. In 1954, he was exposed to radiation from the Bikini Atoll hydrogen bomb test. On August 24, 1964, as Naked Snake, he took part in FOX's first combat mission, the Virtuous Mission. He infiltrated Tselinoyarsk, then part of Soviet territory, via HALO jump. He attempted to rescue Sokolov, but The Boss, who had been providing mission support, defected to the Soviet Union and the mission failed. He was gravely wounded and had to return to the US using the Fulton Recovery System. On August 30, 1964, with FOX's survival at stake, Operation Snake Eater was launched, Naked Snake's mission being to eliminate The Boss. He once again infiltrated Soviet territory from high-altitude, this time with the help of a supersonic drone aircraft. Despite losing his right eye, he completed his mission and the US President awarded Naked Snake the title of "Big Boss," surpassing The Boss herself. In 1970, Big Boss left FOX. Immediately afterward, he was abducted by FOX and taken to San Hieronymo Peninsula. There he was imprisoned, but escaped with the help of fellow prisoner Roy Campbell. Big Boss then became ensnared in FOX commander Gene's attempt to steal Metal Gear from San Hieronymo. He defeated Gene and the "Perfect Soldier" Null, and then destroyed Metal Gear RAXA and ICBMG, returning home to a hero's welcome. In 1972, he provided his genes to the Patriots for their Les Enfantes Terribles Project. Three clones of Big Boss were created. However, Big Boss himself was outraged by the way his DNA* was used and broke off from the Patriots. He became a lone soldier, drifting from country to country. He joined an LRRP (long-range reconnaissance patrol) in Vietnam and fought alongside SOG (Special Operations Group), the Green Berets, and the Wild Geese. Later, he became a mercenary who appeared in numerous territorial and ethnic conflicts around the world. He achieved near-mythical status, even becoming a minor media celebrity at one point. After that, he served as a combat instructor and worked to reintegrate former child soldiers into society. Big Boss was also reunited on the battlefield with Frank Jaeger, the soldier formerly known as Null. He took Frank and his foster sister Naomi back with him to the United States, where he helped them establish normal lives. In the 1990s, Big Boss returned to the US military as the commander of the newly formed Special Forces unit FOXHOUND. - In 1995, the Outer Heaven Uprising prompted FOXHOUND to launch Operation Intrude N313. Contact was lost with Gray Fox, the first agent sent to Outer Heaven, and Big Boss subsequently dispatched Solid Snake, a new recruit. Solid Snake was charged with rescuing Gray Fox and destroying Metal Gear. However, his actions unmasked Big Boss as the mastermind behind Outer Heaven. Big Boss attempted to get rid of Solid Snake personally, but failed and was himself defeated. Big Boss established his mercenary company Outer Heaven as a means of achieving his vision of creating a world where warriors could find true fulfillment. He gathered mercenaries from around the world who shared this vision. Even after his defeat, there were many who wished for his return, and Big Boss was able to survive thanks to the Snatcher Project. In 1999, the Zanzibarland Disturbance triggered the launch of Operation Intrude F014. Roy Campbell, who had taken over from Big Boss as FOXHOUND commander, dispatched Solid Snake into Zanzibarland. Yet Big Boss was still not fully dead. The Patriots used nanomachines to cryogenically preserve his body in secret as a biomort. Big Boss' genetic code was used in the Sons of the Patriots ID recognition system as the key to the Patriots' worldwide control. However, Liquid Ocelot, EVA (Big Mama), and Naomi Hunter formed a plan to revive Big Boss. Restored to life, Big Boss was reunited with his clone, Solid Snake, and was infected with the FOXDIE virus planted by the Patriots, ending Big Boss' life for good. ---------- [PE007] [Big Mama] EVA's nickname in the anti-Patriots resistance group, Paradise Lost Army. A counterpart to Big Boss. ---------- [PE008] [Black Ninja] A mercenary in Zanzibarland. Formerly a member of NASA's top-secret Extraterrestrial Environment Special Force. He is a high-tech ninja whose physical abilities have been enhanced beyond their natural limits with drugs. His body is protected by a flex armor suit. His unit was deemed too much of a threat and disbanded, but several of its members defected to Zanzibarland. He uses a shuriken as his main weapon. ---------- [PE009] [Brezhnev] Full name Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev. He became the Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union after Khrushchev's downfall. Khrushchev's ouster in 1964 paved the way for Brezhnev to become First Secretary of the Communist Party. He served as the surpreme leader of the Soviet Union, forming a duumvirate with Premier Alexey Kosygin and later becoming Chairmman of the Supreme Soviet from 1977 until his death in 1982. Brezhnev reportedly formed a wide-ranging network of personal contacts during his tenure as a major general in the Red Army. He had close ties to the Dnipropetrovs'k and Moldavian mafias, which proved instrumental in his later rise to power. Although loyal to Khrushchev, worsening economic conditions prompted him to join the plot to overthrow his predecessor, and he became the new leader. As First Secretary of the Communist Party, Brezhnev worked to defend the socialist system. He sought to restore the reputation of Joseph Stalin, tarnished by Khrushchev's criticisms, and used Warsaw Pact military force to crush the "Prague Spring" liberalization movement in Czechoslovakia. In foreign relations he signed the 1972 Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT I) with the United States, ushering in the era of detente. At the same time, he strengthened the Soviet presence in Europe by dispatching troops to Czechoslovakia. - During Operation Snake Eater in 1964, Brezhnev supported GRU Colonel Volgin and spurred allegations of an American nuclear attack, threatening the United States. ---------- [PE010] [Crying Wolf] Four-legged beast from the BB Corps. Armed with a highly refined sense of smell, capable of pinpointing a foe's location even in blizzard conditions. She engages in team-based attacks, along with an escort unit of powered suit soldiers. Firing the on-board rail gun requires the operator to manually sight foes, partially exposing themselves above the beast's armor. Her speed as a quadruped and extremely tough shell enable her to charge enemies, with an impact strong enough to overturn an armored bulldozer. ---------- [PE011] [Cunningham] FOX's former prisoner interrogation specialist. His codename while a member of FOX was "Boa." He is a master of torture whose favorite implement is the stun rod. His philosophy regarding torture is to apply just the right kind in just the right amount in just the right location. During his days in FOX, Cunningham was wounded in the leg while on a mission for the CIA, and subsequently retired from the unit. In 1970, he joined Gene's rebellion on the San Hieronymo Peninsula wearing a prosthetic leg. He reveres The Boss as the mother of Special Forces, and feels bitter anger toward the CIA for forcing her to die in a foreign land and for taking control of FOX. In reality, Cunningham was not loyal to the CIA, but a spy planted within FOX's ranks by the CIA's rival, the Pentagon. His objective was to undermine the CIA's authority as well as to obliterate the base at San Hieronymo with a Davy Crockett missile. ---------- [PE012] [Cursed Children of the Snake] When Elisa had her vision of Naked Snake's future, she saw three snakes. These were most likely Solid, Liquid, and Solidus. ---------- [PE013] [Cyborg Ninja] A mechanized ninja encased in a reinforced exoskeleton who appeared on Shadow Moses Island during the 2005 incident. He materialized and vanished at will thanks to full-body stealth camouflage, and also wielded a high-frequency blade. The ninja's consciousness was unstable, causing rapid deterioration of his identity. He bore a special grudge against Solid Snake. The Cyborg Ninja's true identity was Gray Fox, made stronger through exoskeletal enhancements. He died in Zanzibarland, but was revived as an early gene therapy test subject for the genome soldier research program. His mind was altered using drugs, allowing only the desires to face Solid Snake once more in combat to persist within his tattered consciousness. He appears after Liquid Snake activates Metal Gear REX in order to assist Solid Snake, but dies in the heat of battle. ---------- [PE014] [Cynthia] Real name Amy Elizabeth Thorpe. A female British spy active during the Second World War. She used her wit and charm to elict countless secrets, even the naval codes of the French Vichy government. ---------- [PE015] [DARPA Chief] Donald Anderson. ---------- [PE016] [Decoy Octopus] FOXHOUND's master of disguise. His disguises are so thorough, it is said he even takes in the blood of his subject. Although he makes contact with Solid Snake during the Shadow Moses Incident in the guise of the DARPA Chief, he dies by what appears to be a heart attack before Snake discovers his true identity. ---------- [PE017] [Deepthroat] Originally the alias used by the informant in the 1970 Watergate scandal. - The Cyborg Ninja who assisted Solid Snake as he infiltrated Shadow Moses adopted the same name in their communications. ---------- [PE018] [Diane] Steve's younger sister and member of the resistance movement that fought to suppress the Outer Heaven Uprising. She formerly sang for the positive punk band Thin Wall. In the field, she provided Solid Snake with intelligence regarding the mercenaries and weaponry under Outer Heaven's control. ---------- [PE019] [Dirty Duck] Mercenary with Outer Heaven. Former leader of the extremist terrorist group, Egg Plant. His weapon of choice is the boomerang. ---------- [PE020] [Donald Anderson] Head of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). He fell hostage to the terrorists on Shadow Moses Island while there for an exercise to test Metal Gear REX. Shortly after being found by Solid Snake, he dies from what appears to be a heart attack. - The Donald Anderson who died before Snake was actually Decoy Octopus, Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND's master of disguise. The real Donald Anderson had already been killed during one of Revolver Ocelot's torture sessions. Revolver Ocelot purposefully murdered Anderson, but staged it as a torture chamber accident. Anderson was formerly with the FOX Unit under the name Sigint, and was a founding member of The Patriots. ---------- [PE021] [Dr. Clark] A research scientist responsible for secretly developing the Genome Soldiers for the American military. She used former FOXHOUND member Gray Fox as a test subject, grafting an enhanced exoskeleton onto his body and attempting to splice soldier genes into him. Although records state that she died in an accident two years before the Shadow Moses Incident, she was actually killed by Gray Fox after he went berserk. Dr. Clark formerly worked under the codename Para-Medic, part of the team who offered Naked Snake support via radio during Operation Snake Eater. One of the founding members of the Patriots. ---------- [PE022] [Drebin] Drebin 893, unofficial arms dealer and gun launderer. Following the introduction of the Sons of the Patriots System, he and the other Drebins began selling weapons around the world to unregistered groups such as smaller PMCs and local militias, becoming the only individuals who deal in laundered weapons. They also sell various parts obtained through AT Security, as well as the fixing of records through personal connections. They sell naked guns from before the SOP System; switch the ID chips in ID guns for fake chips; sell non-ID guns not requiring an ID process; and also offer gun parts and ammo. Drebin (893) approaches Solid Snake and proposes a mutually beneficial relationship -- Snake provides weapons he finds on the battlefield to Drebin, and in exchange, Drebin will provide Snake with weapons he needs and unlock ID guns. They use units of barter called Drebin Points (DP) in lieu of currency. The Drebins' business comes from these relationships with green collars having no affiliation. Drebin (893) is a fan of extinct and rare animals, UMAs, and famous soldiers throughout history. His hobby is collecting information on units like the Cobra Unit, Dead Cell, and the BB Corps, and has decorated the walls of his armored car with their photos. He keeps a pet monkey named Little Gray. His armored car is also equipped with OctoCamo, allowing it to disguise itself in emergencies. Likes to drink the carbondated bevereage NARC, keeping a vending machine stocked with it inside his car. Drebin is part of the Patriots' System. After losing his parents and siblings in the Ugandan civil war, he was kidnapped by an anti-government rebel group called the Lords' Resistance Army (LRA) and raised on the battlefield as a child soldier. Following this, he was taken by the Patriots to America, where he became one of the Drebin gun launderers selling their services around the world. Drebin was instructed by the Patriots to contact Snake. The Patriots' objective was to use Drebin to inject Snake with a new FOXDIE. Drebin was successful at using Snake as a vector, mixing in suppressants for old nanomachines. The target of the new FOXDIE was the founding members of the Patriots now opposing Zero -- Big Boss, EVA, and Liquid Ocelot, with their co-conspirator, Naomi Hunter, also targeted. Drebin was also instructed to provide back up to Snake since he stood in opposition to Liquid Ocelot and his comrades. ---------- [PE023] [Ed] Rat Patrol 01's sub-leader, he also serves as radio man and sniper, always keeping his gun in pristine condition. He has a macho appearance and a shaved head. Tattoos can be found all over his body. ---------- [PE024] [Elisa] FOX's chief medical officer. She is in charge of keeping Null under control and monitoring his culture tank. Ursula, FOX's precog, is Elisa's alternate persona. Elisa gained ESP abilities when she was exposed to radiation in a nuclear disaster in the Ural Mountains in 1957. She tried to stop Gene's madness, but was defeated by his Zero Shift. In her last moments, she delivers a prophecy of Naked Snake's future. ---------- [PE025] [Ellen Madnar] Daughter to Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar and former star of the Bolshoi ballet troupe. She was imprisoned alongside her father at the outset of the 1995 Outer Heaven Uprising until her rescue at the hands of Solid Snake, who had infiltrated Outer Heaven on a solo mission. ---------- [PE026] [Emma Emmerich] Full name Emma Emmerich Danziger, younger stepsister to Hal Emmerich. A genius at artificial intelligence (neural AI), complexity theory, and computer engineering, even as a young girl. Nicknamed "EE," she owned a parrot named Otacon, and was known to use a pair of chopsticks to tie back her hair. While at Oxford University, she successfully decoded the cryptographic challenge presented by the British Secret Intelligence Service as part of a special coding event. She became the leader of a cracker group and orchestrated the NSA signal data hacking assault of January 24, 2000, a feat which earned her invitations to join a host of intelligence agencies worldwide. She joined the NSA in 2005 in exchange for information regarding her brother Hal Emmerich, who had been involved in the Shadow Moses Incident. After two years, she left the NSA to begin work on GW, a massive data processing system designed to regulate information on a global scale according to the Patriots' desires. Later, she continued development work within Arsenal Gear, disguised as Big Shell. When the Arsenal Gear project went berserk, the Patriots ordered Emma to create a worm cluster to destroy GW. - In 2007, Emma leaked information about Metal Gear RAY to Hal Emmerich's NGO, Philanthropy, under the name EE. After being rescued by Raiden within the Solidus Snake-controlled Big Shell she entrusted him with the worm cluster, but was subsequently fatally stabbed by Vamp. At the age of 6, Emma lost her stepfather in a family pool drowning incident in which she herself almost died. As a result, she felt a strong love-hate relationship for her stepbrother Hal, who had failed to help them. Emma died before she was able to communicate her true feelings to Hal. ---------- [PE027] [EVA] Appeared before Naked Snake during the 1964 Operation Snake Eater as a cooperative KGB spy sent by Soviet leader Khrushchev. Her mission was the supply him with information and acquire intelligence on Shagohod. She donned glasses and the alias Tatyana and approached Shagohod developer Sokolov. After Sokolov was captured by Colonel Volgin, she pretended to serve Volgin. After rendezvousing with Naked Snake, she uses both her identities as EVA and Tatyana to assist Snake on his infiltration mission and lead him to the massive fortress Groznyj Grad. There, after hearing The Boss's true intentions, she tells everything to Naked Snake in the form of a debriefing on The Boss. - EVA's true identity was a child of the Philosophers who remained in the People's Republic of China. Since childhood, she had received spy training in The Boss' Charm School, and eventually joined the Chinese People's Liberation Army General Staff Headquarters, Second Division. There, she learned techniques such as "bandit shooting," a horizontal sweep using the Chinese pistol. She took the place of the real EVA sent in by the KGB during Operation Snake Eater and attempted to steal the Philosopher's Legacy, a stockpile of the three superpowers' capital, for China. She stole microfilm containing the location of the Philosopher's Legacy that The Boss had recovered, and returned with it to China. That microfilm, however, proved spurious, and the real article fell into the CIA's hands. Chased off by the Chinese government, EVA fled to Hanoi in the 1970's and disappeared. Later, EVA met Big Boss again in Hanoi after he had left the FOX Unit. EVA joined the "Patriots" shortly thereafter. In 1972, as a part of the experimental Les Enfants Terribles Project that sought to create body cell clones of Big Boss, EVA participated as a surrogate mother for twins imbued with Big Boss' chromosomes. Those twins would grow up to become Solid and Liquid Snake. After learning of the Les Enfants Terribles Project, Big Boss left the Patriots. EVA, once more resonating with Big Boss, began to act on his behalf in secret while remaining with the organization. - She later fled to Eastern Europe, where she became Big Mama, leader of the anti-Patriots resistance, the Paradise Lost Army. In addition to taking in war orphans, she worked to stop Zero's ambitions and end the economy of war forever. ---------- [PE028] [Fatman] Dead Cell member. The "Emperor of Explosives." Born the child of a watchmaker, he successfully recreated the Fat Man atom bomb at age 10. After studying at Indian Head (the Naval explosives training school), he worked with NEST (Nuclear Emergency Search Team) before joining Dead Cell. He considered himself an artist, and was noted for spraying his explosive creations with his preferred cologne. Although his large body was encased in a giant bomb blast suit, he had hands as delicate as a woman's, and moved with considerable agility on inline skates. His favorite phrase was, "Laugh and grow fat." He was the only terrorist to join the Sons of Liberty, hired on without any knowledge of the Patriots' existence to test the results of Raiden's training. ---------- [PE029] [Fire Trooper] Mercenary with Outer Heaven. Former GSG9 (German Counter-terrorism Police Unit) member. He wields a flamethrower as effortlessly as a handgun, reducing his targets to ash. ---------- [PE030] [Fortune] Real name: Helena Dolph Jackson. Dead Cell member. She wields a portable rail gun. Also known as "Lady Luck," because bullets aimed at her always missed their mark, while grenades and other explosives thrown her way were always duds. She herself claimed that her luck on the battlefield was at the cost of tragedy in her personal life. Daughter of Marine Commandant Scott Dolph, who died in the sinking tanker incident. She was also the wife of former Dead Cell leader Captain Jackson, who was incarcerated for embezzlement. Fortune's mother, perhaps due to a combination of her husband's death and son-in-law's jailing, committed suicide. Fortune herself miscarried her child in its second trimester as a result of the shock. A few months later, Jackson died while in prison. In the span of six months, Helena had lost her family and the life she had previously taken for granted. In her desperation and desire to prove her late husband's innocence, she joined the military and took over Dead Cell. Even by the end of her basic training, her supernatural luck had begun to manifest. Her belief that Solid Snake was behind the tanker sinking and a burning desire for revenge pushed her onwards. Her ability to deflect bullets and render grenades inert stemmed from an electromagnetic device created by the Patriots. Though shot through the chest by Revolver Ocelot after he disabled her electromagnetic protection, Fortune's dextrocardia (a congenital condition in which the heart is located on the right, not the left side of the chest cavity) allowed her to survive the wound long enough to deal a retaliatory blow. She ultimately died after miraculously deflecting every attack the manned Metal Gear RAY directed at her. ---------- [PE031] [Four Horsemen] A covert squad of mercenaries in Zanzibarland under the direct authority of the President of Zanzibarland. They specialize in assassinations within confined spaces and are made up of former elite agents from SAS (British Army special forces), GSG9 (German federal police counter-terrorism unit), and UDT (Underwater Demolitions Team). ---------- [PE032] [FOXHOUND's Survival Master] Refers to Master Miller, the instructor of the FOXHOUND unit's survival training course. ---------- [PE033] [Frank Hunter] Gray Fox. ---------- [PE034] [Frank Jaeger] The true name of Gray Fox. ---------- [PE035] [Gene (FOX Unit)] The leader of FOX following Naked Snake's departure from the unit, who subverted FOX commander Zero's authority and established his own. His codename was "Viper." He was a product of the Successor Project, designed to create the perfect battlefield commander to command the Perfect Soldiers. Gene's intense charisma gives him the power to win people's hearts and minds. He also possesses ESP abilities that enable him to defeat Null with a single direct mental blast. Gene took over the Soviet base on the San Hieronymo Peninsula and stole the Intercontinental Ballistic Metal Gear (ICBMG). He issued a threat to the CIA that he would launch the ICBMG into the Soviet Union. His goal was to throw off the Philosopher's yoke and build Army's Heaven, a paradise for soldiers. ---------- [PE036] [George Kessler] A military intelligence expert who supports FOXHOUND during the Zanzibarland Disturbance. Kessler has been a member of numerous mercenary outfits worldwide, from South African soldier-for-hire companies to the French Foreign Legion. He was wounded in the right thigh in the Zanzibar War of Independence (the so-called "Mercenary War"), ending his career as a mercenary. He worked for a time as a negotiator, but later used his battlefield knowledge and experience to become an expert on military intelligence. He also worked very briefly as a weapons advisor to FOXHOUND. It is said that he has info on every mercenary in the world, and that no one can call himself a true mercenary unless he knows George Kessler. ---------- [PE037] [George Sears] 43rd President of the United States. After learning of Secretary of Defense Jim Houseman's plot to destroy all evidence of the Shadow Moses Incident, he countermanded the aerial bombing run and removed Houseman from his post, saving Solid Snake's life in the process. He later acted as the ringleader in the Big Shell takeover under the name Solidus Snake. ---------- [PE038] [Ghost] A mysterious figure who appeared on the San Hieronymo Peninsula. Ghost informed Naked Snake of Gene's plot via radio during the San Hieronymo Peninsula Incident. His true identity was Shagohod developer Sokolov. With the help of The Boss, he escaped Groznyj Grad after using a fake death pill given to him by the CIA, but was later captured by the KGB following Groznyj Grad's collapse. He was ultimately forced to work on developing Metal Gear RAXA and the Intercontinental Ballistic Metal Gear on San Hieronymo Peninsula. -> Prividyenie ---------- [PE039] [Granin] Full name Aleksandr Leonovitch Granin. Director of the secret Soviet Design Bureau OKB-812 and rival weapons developer to Sokolov during World War II. He laid the groundwork for the SS-1C mobile ballistic missile system and made countless other contributions to the Soviet weapons program. His government recognized his patriotism, hard work, and dedication by awarding him the Order of Lenin and title, Hero of Socialist Labor. Though he was working under Volgin and funded by the Philosophers' Legacy on the development of what he called a true revolution in weaponry, a bipedal walking tank, the government's interest shifted to Sokolov's Shagohod and Granin's project was cancelled. The task of developing his bipedal tank then fell upon his American associate. In the 1964 Operation Snake Eater, Granin cooperates with Naked Snake to spite Sokolov. The scret of his betrayal was short-lived, though, thanks to the bugged shoes he wore: a gift from Tatyana. ---------- [PE040] [Gray Fox] Solid Snake's senior in the US Army's Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND, known by a host of names, including Frank Hunter, Null, Frank Jaeger, and the Cyborg Ninja. He reappeared time and again upon the field of battle, driven by the obsessive pleasure he felt at fighting Solid Snake. ---------- [PE041] [Gun Launderer] An arms dealer who enables the use of weapons controlled by the Sons of the Patriots System without an ID check. Only a Drebin can perform this type of modification. Guns under the system and requiring an ID check are known as ID guns; guns that have been laundered and no longer require an ID check are known as non-ID guns; and guns that were created beforet he SOP System and do not contain an ID chip are known as naked guns. ---------- [PE042] [Gustava Heffner] An undercover agent for the Czech secret police. She was abducted by Zanzibarland along with Dr. Marv while visiting the US. She was once a professional figure skater whose multiple consecutive world and Olympic championships have earned her the moniker "Ice Princess." At the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Gustava met a man calling himself Frank Jaeger. She fell in love with him and planned to defect, but failed. Since then, with her skating career ruined, she has become an undercover agent, waiting for another chance to defect. She is fluent in Czech, Slovak, Russian, and English. Gustava entrusts her brooch to Solid Snake in Zanzibarland, but is killed by a cannon blast from the revised Metal Gear D, piloted by Gray Fox. ---------- [PE043] [Hal Emmerich] Former ArmsTech researcher and chief of development for the Metal Gear project. Together with Solid Snake, he formed the anti-Metal Gear NGO "Philanthropy," and later worked to combat the Patriots. Nicknamed "Otacon." A fan of Japanese anime and regular attendee of America's annual "Otaku Convention," he adopted the event's nickname as his own. - After running away from home due to family conflicts, he dropped out of school. Through Internet-based self study, he secured acceptance to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he earned his PhD at a young age. He holds additional Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from Princeton University as well. Scouted by the FBI as a student, he joined their ERF (Engineering Research Facility). After being caught monitoring and hacking their central database, he was forced out of the FBI and joined defense contractor ArmsTech. At ArmsTech, Emmerich developed a series of new technologies, including stealth camouflage, that were officially adopted by the US Army. Following this, he poured his energy into the Metal Gear project. His love of Japanese robot anime made him dream of developing bipedal robots in real life, and he projected that dream onto Metal Gear. Financed by DARPA, Metal Gear was developed as a top-secret black project, though Emmerich believed Metal Gear to be a mobile TMD (theater missile defense) project. For generations, the Emmerich family was tied to the tragic history of nuclear war. His grandfather was part of the Manhattan Project that initially developed the atom bomb. In the 1960's, he received the plans for Metal Gear, a nuclear-armed bipedal walking tank, from Granin, a Russian scientist. His father was born on August 6th, 1945, the day the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. After raising Hal, he remarried, taking in his spouse's daughter, Emma Emmerich. Later, unable to bear the fact that his son, Hal, had an affair with his new wife, he planned to drown himself in his home swimming pool, and to take Emma with him in death. Though Emma survived, Hal's father was successful in his bid for suicide. During the 2005 incident on Shadow Moses Island, Hal Emmerich met Solid Snake. Emmerich, stranded within the facility now under Liquid Snake's control, had gone into hiding within the research lab for fear of the Cyborg Ninja's rampage. After Snake defeated the Ninja, Emmerich asked him, "Are you an otaku too?" Snake then explained to Emmerich that Metal Gear REX was equipped with nuclear weapons. To Emmerich, who had dreamt of building robots to maintain peace, the news came as a shock, motivating him to assist Snake in destroying Metal Gear. From that point on, Emmerich donned his stealth camouflage and offered Snake support from the shadows. There on Shadow Moses Island, Emmerich fell in love with FOXHOUND member Sniper Wolf. Wolf, a woman who found solace in her loneliness in tending to the facility's wolfdogs, chose to fight against Solid Snake despite Emmerich's pleas, and was killed. Having lost both his dreams and his love, Emmerich put Shadow Moses behind him. Later, Emmerich and Solid Snake established the anti-Metal Gear NGO, "Philanthropy." After receiving an e-mail tip from "EE" in 2007, Emmerich hacked into the Pentagon's files and discovered that the Navy was transporting a new form of anti-Metal Gear weapon, Metal Gear RAY (manned) aboard a disguised tanker. Snake went in to investigate the truth. His mission was to photograph Metal Gear RAY so that Emmerich could post the evidence online. The tanker was sunk, however, and Metal Gear RAY was stolen by Revolver Ocelot. Though Emmerich managed to rescue Snake from the ship, Philanthropy and Solid Snake were accused of sinking it. Blamed for sinking the tanker, Philanthropy was driven underground In 2009, Snake infiltrated the Big Shell under the pseudonym "Iroquois Pliskin," with Emmerich providing backup. There, Emmerich was reunited with his younger stepsister, Emma. Emma deepy resented her brother. When Emma, age 6, and Hal's father were drowning in their swimming pool, Hal failed to save them, a fact for which she never forgave him. But the depth of her hatred revealed the intensity of her love for Hal. As Emma, stabbed by Vamp, lay dying, she confessed her true feelings to her brother. Hal, however, was unable to respond in kind. At the time of their drowning, Hal had been in the midst of a liaison with Emma's mother. Hal felt a heavy sense of guilt, both for succumbing to temptation and for the death of his sister. Philanthropy ceased activity in 2009, following the Big Shell takeover, and Emmerich changed gears to join Snake in commencing anti-Patriot activity. - Subsequently, Emmerich took custody of Olga's daughter, Sunny, freed from the Patriots during Raiden's solo infiltration, and taught the girl how to program and hack. She later supports Snake through development work on the remote-controlled terminal Metal Gear Mk. II, the mimetic OctoCamo camouflage, the multi-purpose Solid Eye goggle, and other field tools. ---------- [PE044] [Holly White] A freelance international journalist who snuck into Zanzibarland to cover the events there. The daughter of a French mother and a British father, Holly won a Pulitzer Prize for her reporting on the wars in Afghanistan. She is also a well-known director for KTV and received an Emmy for her acclaimed documentary "The Unknown Bloodshed." The multitalented Ms. White also works as a fashion model for the magazine Depeche Vogue. Behind all of this, however, she is serves [sic] as an undercover agent for the CIA, which makes use of her status and fame to further its intelligence operations. ---------- [PE045] [Iroquois Pliskin] The alias Solid Snake used when he encountered Raiden during his 2009 infiltration of Big Shell. His alleged rank is lieutenant junior grade. Raiden assumed he was a survivor of SEAL Team 10, though Snake maintained his silence when asked abuot his affiliation. In Algonquin, the language of the native inhabitants of Manhattan, the word "Iroquois" refers to a venemous snake. It is also the name of an eastern tribe of Native Americans with over a thousand years of history, who operated under a federated system known as the Iroquois Federation which heavily influenced the United States at the time of its inception. In their language, the word "Manhattan" means "island of many hills." ---------- [PE046] [J. Edgar Hoover] John Edgar Hoover was the director of the FBI from 1924 until 1972. In the 1950's, the FBI's overseas activities were curtailed by the newly formed CIA. J. Edgar Hoover consequently focused on the domestic anti-communist "Red Hunt" movement, placing severe restrictions on civil rights in the process. - During the Shadow Moses Incident, Naomi Hunter, a member of FOXHOUND's rear support team, lied about her background. She claimed her grandfather was a Japanese man who served as an advisor to Hoover in the 1950's, helping the FBI infiltrate Mafia operations. However, there was no record of any Asian-American agents serving in the FBI in the 1950's, and the undercover Mafia investigation had not yet begun at that time. ---------- [PE047] [Jack the Ripper] Raiden's nickname as a 10-year-old boy fighting in the Liberian civil war.

Johnson rose to the presidency following the fall from grace of then-President George Sears as a result of the Shadow Moses incident. While on a supervisory trip to the offshore purification facility known as the Big Shell, he was taken hostage by the terrorist group, Sons of Liberty, who demanded 30 billion dollars in random from the US government. He was accompanied on his visit by Secret Service agent Richard Ames. Johnson's purpose for going to Arsenal Gear was to become one of the Patriots. The Patriots manipulated even that desire, however, making him an unwitting accomplice in the S3 Plan. Lamenting his pathetic fate as a pawn to the Patriots to the very end, he was killed by Revolver Ocelot in front of Raiden. ---------- [PE050] [Jennifer] Member of the resistance movement that fought to suppress the Outer Heaven Uprising. She infiltrated Outer Heaven as a member of the organization's medical staff in hopes of freeing her captured brother. Proud and cautious by nature, she refused to answer any transmissions from Solid Snake until she was certain he could be trusted. Ultimately, she provided him with information on weapons. ---------- [PE051] [Jennifer's Brother] Full name unknown. He was among the soldiers captured at the onset of the Outer Heaven Uprising, held in a prison constantly monitored by Outer Heaven security. ---------- [PE052] [Jim Houseman] US Secretary of Defense. A friend of the DARPA Chief, he worked together with ArmsTech in the top-secret development of Metal Gear REX. During Liquid Snake's uprising on Shadow Moses Island, Houseman commanded the suppression operation from AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System). Worried that the existence of Metal Gear REX and the Genome Soldiers might go public, he plotted to kill off those involved using the FOXDIE assassination virus, then safely reclaim REX. Upon hearing that Solid Snake had destroyed Metal Gear REX, Houseman relieved Roy Campbell from his post and ordered an aerial bombing run to cover up all evidence. President George Sears stepped in, however, exercising his authority to remove the Secretary from his post. ---------- [PE053] [Johan Jacobsen] A zoologist who serves as a life science adviser to the science magazine "Maxwell." He is an old college friend of Dr. Pettrovich Madnar.

The eldest son in each generation is always named "Johnny." The first Johnny to appear takes the role of a prison guard at Groznyj Grad fortress in the 1960s. He wore a full face mask embroidered with a "J" and encountered Naked Snake as a member of Spetsnaz, the GRU's special forces unit. This Johnny's grandson appeared as a prison guard on Shadow Moses island in 2005. He also showed up as one of the Russian Gurlukovich soldiers occupying the Big Shell in 2009. After the Big Shell Incident, he returned to the US military and became a member of Rat Patrol 01, earning the nickname "Akiba." ---------- [PE055] [Jonathan] Member of Rat Patrol 01.

He wears a high-tech camouflage suit that renders him undetectable to motion sensing radar. ---------- [PE058] [Kenneth Baker] President of defense contractor ArmsTech, which worked closely with the Pentagon in developing Metal Gear REX. While on Shadow Moses Island for REX's test run, he was taken hostage by terrorists along with the DARPA Chief. Under torture at the hands of Revolver Ocelot, he had revealed the detonation code for the nuclear warhead. He made contact with Solid Snake, there on a one-man infiltration mission, contracted FOXDIE, and died in the ensuing heart attack. ---------- [PE059] [Khrushchev] Full name Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev. Upon the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953, he became the supreme leader of the Soviet Union, holding the posts of First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and Chairman of the Council of Ministers. He strove for peaceful co-existence with the capitalist bloc led by the United States. He received the Order of Lenin for his achievements in building the Moscow subway system. A fierce critic of Stalin, Khrushchev pursued a policy of peaceful co-existence with capitalist countries like the U.S. and France, thereby effecting a temporary "thaw" in the Cold War. He was a champion of space development, launching the Sputnik Project in 1957 and the Vostok Project in 1960, and expanding the USSR's lead over America in the Space Race. Khrushchev left behind an impressive cultural legacy, including his defense of dissident author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's criticisms of socialism, and his reduction of nuclear stockpiles on the advice of Andrei Sakharov, the father of the Russian hydrogen bomb. However, he also faced increasing domestic criticism over his concessions to U.S. President Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis, his failed agricultural policies, and backlash against his criticism of Stalin. He became embroiled in an ideological struggle with Mao Zedong's People's Republic of China, leading to the Sino-Soviet Split. In 1964, senior members at an emergency meeting of the Central Committee demanded Khrushchev's ouster and he retired from his posts as First Secretary of the Communist Party and Chairman of the Council of Ministers (premier). He was succeeded by Leonid Brezhnev and Alexey Kosygin. - During Operation Snake Eater in 1964, Khrushchev sent a spy through the KGB to betray an American agent. His plan was to destroy the Brezhnev faction by seizing the Philosophers' Legacy from GRU Colonel Volgin. However, the Legacy passed into the hands of the United States, causing Khrushchev's downfall. ---------- [PE060] [Kio Marv] Czech scientist specializing in Biotechnology. Fluent in Czech and Slovakian. While conducting research in the East on biomass pesticide modification, he accidentally discovered the basis for OILIX in one of his experiments, subsequently refining the concept to completion. Also a well-known computer game enthusiast, Marv frequently submitted home-brewed games to a variety of magazines to rave reviews. While en route to America for the International Energy Crisis Summit, he was kidnapped by agents of Zanzibarland. Long troubled by a heart condition, Marv was unable to withstand the torture he received in Zanzibarland. ---------- [PE061] [Kyle Schneider] Leader of the resistance movement that fought to suppress the 1995 Outer Heaven Uprising. Formerly an architectural engineer, he was a member of the Outer Heaven facility design staff until his wife and child lost their lives as innocent victims of the conflict. Their deaths spurred him to commence underground operations which grew to a full-blown resistance movement under his keen eye and strong leadership. - After the fall of Outer Heaven, Schneider felt that he had lost his reason for living and began to resonate with Big Boss's dreams of creating a world in which soldiers could fulfill their "sole purpose" in life. Shortly after Big Boss gained leadership over Zanzibarland Schneider became his ally. In 1999, during the Zanzibarland Disturbance, Schneider came to Zanzibarland's defense as the mercenary known as "Black Ninja." ---------- [PE062] [Laughing Octopus] Four manipulator-tentacled beast from the BB Corps. Capable of blending into the surrounding environment using technology related to OctoCamo. She can also spew ink to obscure herself from foes, and is armed with back-mounted homing explosives. The four manipulators she possesses are an evolved form of Solidus Snake's snake arm combat suit, and can be used to precisely attack foes, even at mid-range distances. ---------- [PE063] [Legendary Mercenary] Big Boss' nickname. He was once acclaimed for preventing all-out war between the United States and the Soviet Union, but later quit the US military. As a mercenary, his exploits on countless battlefields further burnished his image, and he became known as the Legendary Mercenary. ---------- [PE064] [Liquid Ocelot] The mind of Liquid Snake, housed in the body of Revolver Ocelot. Balance was restored to his psyche after the right hand that housed Liquid's Will was surgically replaced as a prosthetic limb. He ran Outer Heaven, a mother company that secretly controlled the world's five largest PMCs (Private Military Companies), and plotted to lead a rebellion against the Patriots using its military power. He placed genetic engineering scientist Naomi Hunter under house arrest, forcing her to access the Sons of the Patriots System. - Using Big Boss' genetic code to enter the Patriots' AI network, Liquid Ocelot succeeded in taking over the Sons of the Patriots. Renaming it the Guns of the Patriots, he used it to disable every gun and weapon in the world. He then stole the Arsenal Gear-class battleship from the Patriots, and outfitted it with Metal Gear REX's rail gun. He then attempted to use a nuclear warhead launched into orbit from the rail gun to destroy the Patriots' core AI, "JD," in space. Liquid Ocelot's personality was actually nothing more than the manmade product of Revolver Ocelot's own drug use and autosuggestion. Revolver Ocelot played the part of Liquid Ocelot in order to awaken Big Boss, who had been kept in a comatose state by the Patriots' AI collective, to find the whereabouts of Zero. He posed as a Liquid Snake doppelganger in order to hide those intentions from the core AI, JD. Once he had destroyed JD from the inside, his mission as Liquid Ocelot was over. When his life was subsequently claimed by FOXDIE, he died as Revolver Ocelot himself. ---------- [PE065] [Liquid Snake] Former leader of the combat division of Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND and chief conspirator behind the Shadow Moses Incident. A clone of Big Boss born through the 1972 Les Enfants Terribles Project, he was a manmade twin to Solid Snake, with whom he shared a virtually identical DNA signature. The fate he felt was coded into that very DNA fueled his actions. He fought in the Gulf War as a teen, and infiltrated the Middle East as a sleeper for the British SIS (Secret Intelligence Service). He became a POW in Iraq, and went missing. Later, he joined Special Forces Unit FOXHOUND after Solid Snake had left it. In 2005, he led FOXHOUND and Next-Generation Special Forces in taking control of a small Alaskan isle, Shadow Moses Island. There, he stole the nuclear-equipped bipedal tank, Metal Gear REX, and demanded Big Boss' remains from the American government. In acquiring Big Boss' remains, he hoped to develop a cure for the disease caused by the Genome Soldier gene therapy, and to recreate Big Boss's Outer Heaven on Shadow Moses. The American military deployed Liquid Snake's twin, Solid Snake, in hopes of stopping Liquid. Liquid used Solid Snake to his own advantage, however, luring him into disabling the PAL nuclear launch safety device. Although he successfully activated Metal Gear REX, the weapon was destroyed by Snake and the Cyborg Ninja, and Liquid's plan was foiled. Ultimately, Liquid Snake falls victim to FOXDIE, the assassination virus the Pentagon planted in Solid Snake's body in order to quietly wipe out everyone involved in the Shadow Moses Incident, dying of a fatal heart attack. - But Liquid Snake's role continued even after his death. In the 2007 New York Harbor tanker sinking, Hal Emmerich used Liquid Snake's remains as a body double for Solid Snake. After losing his right hand in the Shadow Moses incident, Ocelot had Liquid Snake's arm surgically grafted onto his body and took on Liquid's ambitions under the guise of Liquid Ocelot. Later, Liquid's remains were also transplanted onto Big Boss's body as replacement parts. ---------- [PE066] [Liquid Snake's Right Arm] After Revolver Ocelot had his right hand cut off during the Shadow Moses Incident, he paid a transplant team in Lyon, France to attach Liquid Snake's right arm to his body. However, whenever Solid Snake is nearby, Revolver Ocelot acts as if Liquid Snake's mind has reawakened and taken over his consciousness. Eventually, Liquid Snake manages to take over Revolver Ocelot's mind completely, creating Liquid Ocelot. After this, Ocelot removes the arm and uses a prosthetic instead. - Liquid Ocelot's personality was actually nothing more than the manmade product of Revolver Ocelot's own autosuggestion. ---------- [PE067] [Little Gray] A naked monkey that accompanies Drebin at all times. It shares Drebin's affinity for carbonated drinks like NARC. Its hairless form bears a disturbing resemblance to an alien captured by the FBI. Little Gray's bed sits beside the vending machine in Drebin's armored Stryker. - Captivated by Snake's smoking habit, it takes up cigarettes. ---------- [PE068] [Little John] Son of Raiden and Rosemary. Though outwardly raised as the child of Rosemary and Campbell in order to shield Rosemary and John from possible danger as a result of Raiden's resistance activities against the Patriots, Rosemary was actually pregnant with John at the time of the Big Shell Incident. One month after the collapse of the Patriot's system, the five-year-old John met his true father for the first time. As an avid sci-fi movie and anime fan, he grew up with the romantic notion of a hero. ---------- [PE069] [Machinegun Kid] Mercenary with Outer Heaven. Former SAS (British Army Special Forces) member. Known for his skilled use of the machine gun. ---------- [PE070] [Major Tom] The codename used by Major Zero during the Virtuous Mission. He named himself after one of the tunnels dug by the prisoners in the movie "The Great Escape." The three tunnels in that movie were named Tom, Dick, and Harry. Major Zero mistakenly believed that Tom was the one the prisoners used to make their escape. Later, after learning that Tom was in fact the tunnel discovered by the guards, Major Zero dropped the name "Major Tom" and adopted his original codename "Zero" for Operation Snake Eater. "Major Tom" is also the name of the main character in the songs "Space Oddity" and "Ashes to Ashes" by rock musician David Bowie. ---------- [PE071] [Master Miller] Full name McDonnell Benedict Miller. FOXHOUND's survival instructor. Hard-nosed and unforgiving, he is referred to as "Master Miller" by the members of FOXHOUND as a sign of respect. A third-generation Japanese-American, he served as an instructor for SAS, the Green Berets, and a Marine boot camp as well as a coach at a merc school. He is well-read and possesses a vast array of scientific knowledge. After retiring from boot camp, he moved to Alaska where he occasionally acted as an instructor for the Alaska Scouts. He is an expert on local flora and fauna, and his knowledge of survival techniques is also extensive. He lives with his daughter Catherine. - He met Solid Snake at FOXHOUND's training camp. In 1999, he joined a rear support unit to assist Solid Snake during the Zanzibarland Disturbance. He also participated in the rear support for the 2005 Shadow Moses Incident, providing advice from his home over radio. - But the Master Miller who provided support to Snake during the Shadow Moses Incident was an imposter. The real Master Miller had been murdered in his home in Alaska. The man posing as Master Miller was none other than Liquid Snake. ---------- [PE072] [Mata Hari] Real name Margaretha Geertruida Zelle. The famous "femme fatale spy" of the First World War. She became a popular exotic dancer with her tantalizing dance routine, which she learned while station with her husband in Java. Mata Hari had affairs with military officers from numerous European countries. She was executed by firing squad for being a spy. ---------- [PE073] [Mei Ling] A Chinese-American woman who provides Solid Snake with operational support. Has poor vision and wears corrective contact lenses. She followed her dreams of being a pilot at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), where she joined the ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps). Through the program, however, she discovered that she was not suited to be an officer, and withdrew. A specialist in image and data processing, she developed the Soliton radar system Snake uses. While still an undergraduate, she worked alongside scientists from the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) and ENPIC (International Photoanalysis Center) on image processing and satellite-based ELINT (electronic intelligence) and SIGINT (signals intelligence) research. She was actively entrolled at MIT at the time of the Shadow Moses Incident. Following Shadow Moses, she worked at the Soldier Systems Center, the US Army's weapons development center, contributing weapons to Philanthropy. After the events at Big Shell, she lost her position as a military researcher. But she caught the eye of a US Navy admiral and was promoted to captain of the training vessel USS Missouri. ---------- [PE074] [Meryl Silverburgh] Roy Campbell's biological daughter. In 2005, she joined FOXHOUND after a lifelong admiration for the unit. That same day, the Shadow Moses Incident erupted around her. When she refused to participate in the uprising, she was imprisoned. After effecting her own escape, she accepted the PAL key from fellow hostage and ArmsTech president Kenneth Baker, donned the guise of a genome soldier, and assisted Snake in his infiltration of Shadow Moses Island. Although possessing natural-born military talent that allowed her to handle a large caliber gun with one hand, she was still too psychologically green to fire a weapon at another human being. She was seriously wounded by Sniper Wolf, and later taken captive by Liquid Snake. At the end of the Shadow Moses Incident, she successfully escaped the island together with Solid Snake. Despite commonly thought to be Roy Campbell's niece, she was in fact his daughter, conceived of Campbell's affair with his younger brother's wife. Meryl resented the burden of her parentage, and held Roy Campbell in disdain. Following the incident on Shadow Moses Island, she re-entered the military through former Army colonel Campbell's connections. There, she was posted to the Army's PMC watchdog, the CID (Criminal Investigation Command), as the head of her own team. Her team is Rat Patrol Team 01, comprised of sub-leader Ed, Jonathan, and Johnny (called Akiba by his teammates). They too operate under the SOP System implemented by the US military. Meryl's Rat Patrol Team 01 was, in truth, a reconnaissance unit for the Patriots. Team 01's missions came directly from the Patriots, and the data they gathered was integrated into the Patriots' AI (JD). ---------- [PE075] [Mr. X] A mysterious figure who guided Raiden through Big Shell's interior. The source originally introduced himself as Deepthroat, then retracted that, offering the name Mr. X in its place. Clothed in the redesigned Cyborg Ninja suit, he offered Raiden intelligence via Codec and other means. Mr. X's true identity was Olga Gurlukovich, coerced by the Patriots into assisting Raiden for fear of the safety of her daughter, who the Patriots held captive. _______________________________________________________________________________ More to come in the very near future!
