Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.

IRON BEAR is the OKTOBER GUARD General and their best kept secret. He is an experienced war veteran with detailed knowledge of military strategies, battles, locations, vehicles, armaments, and noteworthy soldiers. He is a very wise and confident leader, yet humble around his soldiers. It is rumored that he has amassed a sizable collection of war memorabilia, but no one knows where it is kept. Although he commands his elite team behind the scenes, there are occasions when he must leave their secret headquarters to protect and serve the interests of Mother Russia.

IRON BEAR has spent years avoiding attempts on his life from traitorous double agents within the Soviet army. However, he has learned to stay one step ahead of the enemy and always keep on the move. It may be a neverending task, but he proudly directs his elite special missions team to strike at them until the very last man is standing.
