Lore[edit]

Background[edit]

Born into a family of stevedores, Baker enlisted for active military duty on his eighteenth birthday. A veteran of three wars, Baker was the oldest S.A.S. operative on active duty until he was recruited by Rainbow.

Psychological Report[edit]

Baker is highly observant, calculating and decisive. While his demeanor may denote traces of impatient cynicism, Baker possesses a profound sense of ethical responsibility. It is recommended to assign Baker with junior operators of strong moral conviction, whom he can mentor.

Training[edit]

  • British Army: Parachute Regiment
  • British Army: S.A.S. Bravo Two Zero
  • British Army: S.A.S. Warrant Officer Class 1 (Regimental Sergeant Major)

Relevant Experience[edit]

Baker's exemplary performance, on and off the battlefield, during two politically-charged conflicts made him a natural fit for VIP protection duty. He is highly proficient in close quarters combat, and is a world-caliber expert in anti-electronics operations.

Notes[edit]

  • Saw action at the battle of Goose Green during the Falklands Conflict
  • On Team Blue of Operation Nimrod (Iranian Embassy siege, 1980)
  • Veteran of unit Bravo Two Zero during Gulf War (1991)
