"As a highly decorated specialist in counter-terrorism with DEEP (Department of Elaborate Engagement Protocols), a disjointed arm of the CIA, you are a far cry from the stereotypical Vietnam era snake-eating, muscle-bound Rambo commando. You are the epitome of the ultimate soldier, using intellect, cunning and lightning speed to achieve his objectives. Brute force is only a matter of necessity, nothing more, nothing personal. Armed with the most exotic weapons and equipment, you are a master of infiltration and escape, adept in all aspects of combat engineering, including demolition, ambush, recon and subterranean warfare."
