5 - Special Operative
The Crimson Guard represent several steps forward in the evolution of the Cobra Trooper. They are considered the most elite troopers of Cobra's army and possess a fearsome oath of loyalty to Cobra Commander that only few non-Siegie (phonetic for the Crimson Guard initials, C.G.) troopers can match. Aside from the standard infantry training they receive; each Crimson Guardsman is expected to specialize in a civilian profession that may be considered as mundane by most. Specifically, most of them hold degrees in law or accountancy. Upon graduating, many are sent out to the world at large, posing as doctors, lawyers, executives and even infiltrating the higher echelons of politics. More than just undercover agents, the Crimson Guard goes deeper, earning the trust of the gullible public who don't know their true loyalty...
Infrared is a Crimson Guard assigned to the Plague.
The Crimson Guard included the "Fred" series who underwent plastic surgery to look identical. They were charged with infiltrating American industry, politics, and society to undermine them from within. If one Fred died, another could easily take his place. Known "Freds" included Fred Broca, Fred II and Fred VII.
Recognizing that perhaps throwing huge waves of faceless troopers at his enemies was not the way to finally defeat the G.I. Joe Team, Cobra Commander instead tried to duplicate their success by forming his own equivalent team of specialists, drawn from the various Cobra forces. Infrared was a Crimson Guard assigned to this new Plague.
Infrared was assigned to the Plague in September of 2007.
Infrared is available.
