INTERROGATOR’s past is shrouded in mystery. What little information GI Joe has gathered on his history indicates that before being recruited by Cobra Commander, the Interrogator was head of security for a now-deposed third world dictator. He has a formidable knowledge of psychiatry, sociology, and psychology, an astonishing mastery of interrogation and torture techniques and the ability to direct intelligence operations with surprising efficiency. A superior helicopter pilot, he is capable of keeping a craft aloft in the worst flight conditions, and in combat he is easily the equal of some of the best GI-Joe chopper pilots. Standard equipment in his primary line of work includes a Sensory-Enhancing helmet with a Voice Modulator/Synthesizer and a Trance-Inducing LED display which when combined induce a gentle hypnosis in his patients, causing them to spill their deepest, darkest secrets without even knowing it. He has been known to use other devices that when combined work as an extremely reliable lie detector. In combat situations he can usually be found piloting a F.A.N.G. or MAMBA. He often serves as Cobra Commander’s personal chopper pilot when the head snake needs to enter a high-security location. He is second-in-Command of Cobra R&D beneath Typhoid, although the two often work independently of one another, splitting research duties between them. He should be considered armed and dangerous at all times.
INTERROGATOR’s past is shrouded in mystery. What little information GI Joe has gathered on his history indicates that before being recruited by Cobra Commander, the Interrogator was head of security for a now-deposed third world dictator. He has a formidable knowledge of psychiatry, sociology, and psychology, an astonishing mastery of interrogation and torture techniques and the ability to direct intelligence operations with surprising efficiency.
Many rumors circulate about his past. Was he really the notorious former head of security for a deposed third world dictator? Or was he a renegade clinical psychologist? A demented psychiatric physician? Or even an IRS investigator? Nobody knows for sure, but what they do know is that INTERROGATOR can siphon information out of even the most obstinate prisioner simply by TALKING to him. Not only is he known for his intimidating interrogation techniques, but he's also an impeccable copter pilot. He can fly through a Siberian blizzard with his eyes closed and still arrive at Cobra headquarters ahead of schedule.
Joes intelligence suggests Interrogator has a voice modulator/synthesizer built into his helmet that works in conjunction with a trance inducing LED display. They believe his subjects listen to his soothing baritone voice, stare at the flashing lights, and before they know it, they're spilling secrets. The Joes suspect that he also uses such sophisticated 'toys' as a stress analyst, a retinal dilation sensor and other instruments that would add up to a reliable lie detector of sorts.
Whatever his credentials, he is a master at extracting information from prisoners. And he can usually break them simply by talking to them. With a soothing voice that lulls captives into a trance, the careful application of logic and reason, and just a hint of sympathy, the COBRA INTERROGATOR soon has the information he needs. Of course, a prisoner sometimes chooses not to cooperate. That's when the interrogator calls in COBRA VIPER GUARDS to help change the captive's mind with some physical inducements.
"Of course I could simply hurt them until they talk. But it's so much more amusing to twist their minds until all they want to do is tell me every single secret they know."
Interrogator introduced the Battle Copteras one of his personal transports 1991. However, Ace was able to commandeer a copy of it in 1992, after which Interrogator ceased using it as a primary vehicle. Ace continued to use the stolen Cobra copter for the next year before mothballing it in 1993.
Interrogator often serves as Cobra Commander’s personal chopper pilot when the head snake needs to enter a high-security location. He is second-in-Command of Cobra R&D beneath Typhoid, although the two often work independently of one another, splitting research duties between them. He should be considered armed and dangerous at all times. Shortly before Cobra Commander's disappearance, he was tapped to help lead the Plague Troopers.
The Interrogator's loyalty came into question at the end of 2010, when he disobeyed a direct order to destroy an amalgam of previous Over Kill personalities. Cobra Commander sentenced him to the Brainwave Scanner, but Dr. Mindbender made a deal with him, sparing the Interrogator the effects in return for personal loyalty and future favors.
Interrogator later reported Doctor Mindbender's actions to Cobra Commander. What Cobra Commander chose to do with this information is thus unknown to Interrogator.
In 2012 Interrogator accompanied Major Bludd on his African Tour, and was injured attempting to apprehend Duke. While healing from his fight with Duke Cobra Commander ordered Interrogator to be trained by Dr. Mindbender in the use of the Brainwave Scanner. Following the training Cobra Commander relieved Interrogator of his duties as XO of Plague, in order to free him up for special missions for the Commander himself.
In November, Cobra Commander revealed to Interrogator that the Baron Ironblood identity was a ruse perpetrated by the Commander himself for his own nefarious reasons. The Commander asked Interrogator to take over the role, and to use the Red Shadows to strike terror in Cobra's enemies in a way that Cobra currently could not.
01Aug2013 - After returning to full operational capacity following her unfortunate encounter at Offut Air Force Base, Nightlash finds herself flying recon over Los Angeles, where she relays a distress call, and camera footage of the carnage being caused by the Quintesson Invasion, for those trapped behind enemy lines. She would later return to assist Interrogator in covering a medivac helicopter delivering aid for a severely wounded Angel before having to retreat to safety.
02Aug2013 - Cobra forces, led by Interrogator, made a daring rescue of numerous civilians and a severely wounded Angel from the Quintesson-Occupied Los Angeles. Supported from the ground by Reverb, Nightlash managed to hold off the actions of a Quintesson Warship long enough for the evac to take place before succumbing to hostile fire. Fortunately, Sit-Com was on station to pull her out.
25Nov2013 - While keeping overwatch in Chicago for sightings of Angel, Nightlash stumbled upon a GI Joe raid attempting to capture Cobra operatives, Interrogator and Angel, and Dreadnoks Zartan, Zandar, and Zanya. She engaged and assisted in splitting the focus of the Joe raid support group to allow everyone, but Angel, to escape. Angel was arrested.

October 4 - Something Disturbing
To: Rank 6 and higher.
Date: (Interrogator ICly would have ed the exact date, all I remember is some time during the first or second week of October.)
I awoke to find that my e-mail had been bombarded by my contacts. They all contained the same subject, but from different angles and with different recording media quality. The videos and pictures were of Over Kill and a woman I have identified as Alley Viper 910 naked. On his shelf. Together. I am sure everyone's contacts have also sent them the same media, so I will not go into any further detail. Interrogator
October 20 - Over Kill
To: Rank 6 and higher.
I have spoken with Over Kill the past few days. I have diagnosed him tentatively with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. I will begin treatment and have prescribed him medicine for it. Interrogator
October 23 - Over Kill
To: Rank 6 and higher.
I have received Baroness' permission to hypnotize Over Kill. During our first session. I discovered that he has memories he should not have. He was able to regress into X. Interrogator
October 24 - Over Kill
I once again hypnotized Over Kill. He remembered his Neo-Viper unit and kept mentioning 'The Coil'. I believe there was some interest in the matter of 'The Coil' by High Command. I will continue Over Kill's treatment. He is taking the medicine and is being cooperative. Interrogator
October 27 - Over Kill
To: Rank 6 and higher.
I met with Dr. Lazarus, who explained to me that due to Over Kill's Brainwave Scanner Sessions, he should not have memories of being a Neo-Viper or X. I am requesting that due to what he may know of 'The Coil' and my diagnosis of Over Kill's mental illness, that he not be subjected to the Brainwave Scanner again. The Doctor seemed reluctant to let me report to you about these findings. I am also curious why I was not involved more with the Over Kill project. Interrogator (OOC NOTE: ICly Interrogator helped grow the brain, but was then immediately transfered off the project to the Greenhouse to work on another project involving increasing the mind-affecting chemicals of various plants and testing hybrid plants, like what would happen if you crossed the right kind of trippy mushrooms with corn, on Humans.)
October 31 - Halloween, 2010
To: Rank 6 and higher.
While I successfully added Sodium Pentathol to the punch, I was unable to lure anyone outside due to Storm Shadow provoking Over Kill over our radio frequency. If anyone needs the video of the event, I have already downloaded it to a server here on Cobra Island. (OOC NOTE: See the Halloween TP and associated logs. Interrogator would have posted all the logs, as is) Interrogator
November 1 - @QueenOfSpades
Date: November 1, 2010
To: Rank 6 and higher.
I have discovered that the G.I. Joe Kamakura goes by the name GreenRanger on irc.dal.net, and am trying to convince Storm Shadow to assist in his capture so I may interrogate him, remove the memory of the capture and interrogation, and release him. Storm Shadow is appearantly more interested in harassing Over Kill than the Mission at hand. Also, @QueenOfSpades is active on irc.dal.net and I am monitoring the general conversation. FOrgive me, but I fear Storm Shadow has gone Rogue. I am taking a Vector to Snake-Eyes' cabin. I will bring my personal backpack helicopter in case I need to leave quickly. I have left instructions for Over Kill if I do not return. I do not think it is wise to let Storm Shadow near Cobra Commander or any of the High Command. I would suggest he be arrested on sight so we can determine why he is acting odd. Other than freezing, my time at the cabin was uneventful. I stayed a block away from it and did not use any paths. While I observed no signs of any Ninjas being present, I did not make the tactical error of getting too close to it. I am safely back at my post, having taken a Vector back. Once again, I have downloaded the full report to the Server on Cobra Island. (OOC NOTE: @QueenOfSpades Log) Interrogator
November 3 - Storm Shadow
To: Rank 6 and higher.
Thank you, Wiretap for visiting us. Storm Shadow has begun harassing Over Kill again. I have reported to Baroness. Interrogator (OOC NOTE: Interrogator would not have downloaded anything to the server. I also forgot to metnion earlier that he has two separate computers in his helmet. One for the Cobra IC channel and one for everything else. The Cobra IC channel would go to the server on Cobra Island, and everything else to the server that use to be in Russia.)
November 6 - Over Kill project
To: Rank 6 and higher.
I radioed Dr. Lazarus and Over Kill so we could continue our talk about the Over Kill project. Our mission here goes well. (OOC NOTE: The only part of that log that would get sent to the Cobra Island server would be the first three Cobra IC posts. The rest would go to the Russian server.) Interrogator
To: Rank 6 and higher.
When I return to Cobra Island I will be glad to begin therapy of any kind Command sees fit with Alley Viper 910. Due to the extreme stress that incident placed on Over Kill, I had to radio Dr. Lazarus to treat his physical damage. Also, why would anyone prescribe Over Kill Vicodin and Morphine, and let him be in charge of administering it to himself? I believe that whomever did so should go before a Review Board to determine compentancy. As soon as possible, due to the highly addictive nature of both drugs, I would like a full drug screening test done on Over Kill back on Cobra Island. (OOC NOTE: If it was not on the Cobra IC channel, it was not downloaded to Cobra Island.) Interrogator
November 10 - Vector Mutiny
To: Ranks 6 and up
Date: November 10, 2010
Today was quite the eventful day. The Vectors decided to mutiny on Over Kill. Artemis thought of making Vector Six Vector Overlord to quell it and Baroness agreed. For some odd reason, Over Kill threatened me. As the rest of the Plague were out on assignments, and I did not want to cause a scene that would have given away our mission, I used my personal helicopter to strategically withdraw to a contact in Russia. I believe Over Kill has gone off his medication, and that the stress Storm Shadow, @QueenOfSpades, Alley Viper 910, and the Vectors have caused him was too much. (OOC NOTE: If it wasn't on Cobra IC, Interrogator did not download it to Cobra Island.) Interrogator
November 10, 2010
To: Rank 6 and higher
I have returned to base, as commanded. Everything seems calm here. I am having a slight difficulty with my helmet, but I can still use the radio inside it to keep in contact. Somebody else will have to monitor Over Kill on irc.dal.et until it is back online. (OOC NOTE: If it didn't happen on the Cobra IC channel, or wasn't the radio to Major Bludd, Interrogator didn't download it. Also, Interrogator does not download anything to the Russian server until further notice) Interrogator
Nov 15 - Cybertonians
To: All Ranks
Nov 23 - Decepticons
To: Ranks 6 and Higher
Date: November 23, 2010
I have recontacted the Decepticons. Remember one person's 'Future Russian Oil Crisis' is another's opportunity waiting to be siezed.
Nov 23 - Energon Cube?
To: Ranks 6 and Higher
Date: November 23, 2010
Perhaps we could use the Energon Cube in R&D to find some way of poisoning the Decepticons? Then we can poison the oil in a way that will only harm Cybertonians and not Earth machines. Just a thought...
November 23 - Interesting Fact About Cybertonians
To: Ranks 6 and Higher
Date: November 23, 2010
I talked to a Decepticon on irc.dal.net and he informed me that the only way they can achieve an altered state is by overenergizing. I would suggest we find a way to either suppress their ability to tell how full they are or find a way to get more energy into an energon cube.
November 23 - Vectors
To: Ranks 6 and higher
Date: November 23, 2010
The Vectors acted insubordinately towards Over Kill today. Vector Seven was especially aggressive, stating that she was not threatening, she was promising to eat Over Kill. My memory has not been the same lately, due to my re-education, but I had a strange feeling of deja vu listening to the Cobra radio frequency. I was also able to speak a little bit today, and hope to regain the full use of my voice by November 29, 2010. Also, Alley Viper 910 and Over Kill had a brief, but appropriate, conversation over the Cobra radio frequency.
November 28 - Current Mission
To: Rank Six and Higher
Date: November 28, 2010
So far, I have not been able to make contact with Storm Shadow. Destro stopped by today with the latest MARS catalogue. He has designed a new helicopter called the Black Dragon and stated it is already in production, but that he is looking for test pilots. He claims the new helicopter is better than the MAMBA. I would be interested in looking into this matter further.
November 29 - Kamakura Impersonating Cobra Commander
To: Rank 6 and Higher
Date: November 29,2010
Kamakura (GreenRanger) was drunk on irc.dal.net and began impersonating Cobra Commander, bringing shame to our revered leader. He made very lewd remarks about Baroness, Tomax, and Xamont as well. I tried to caontact the Tele-Vipers, but received no response. Over Kill lent me Overlord Vector to fly to Miami so I could confront him in person. Raven and the other Slipstream were there also. I informed them there would be dire consequences if anyone did anything like that again, and told them to pass it on to their comrades. Kamakura also spoke of his father's death and it still troubles him greatly. I let him know I was looking for Psych Out, but said it was only because I wanted to meet him in person. I plan on killing him, should I receive the chance. I downloaded everything to the server here on Cobra Island. Please do not be upset, but I could not tolerate Kamakura's foolishness any longer, and had to put a stop to it.
(OOC Note: I'll post the log as soon as I get it edited.)
November 29 - Report From Random Tele-Viper
To: Rank 7 and Higher
Date November 29, 2010
Interrogator and Over Kill were both drunk and disorderly on the Radio last night. Someone going by the name 'Milksnake' claimed to be a member of Cobra and started saying lewd things. Interrogator had us trace it, and then took his medical helicopter to deal with the culprit.
November 30 - Milksnake
To Rank Six and Higher
Date: November 30, 2010
The coordinates given to me by the Tele-Vipers proved to be incorrect. The only person with a computer in the vicinity was the Slipstream look alike, who was absolutely terrified of me and claimed he did not do it. I believed him, and as I did not want to give the Americans a chance to put a murder charge on me, I returned to the Island. I spent today hunting for Storm Shadow with no success. I would also like to speak to a member of the High Command as soon as their schedule permits.
Dec 31 - 102
All members of Cobra are invited to a New Year's Eve party in my apartment building in Moscow. Interrogator.
December 31 2010 to January 6 2011
TO: Rank 6 and higher
After the security breach Destro reported and our safe arrival at the Silent Castle, I returned to Cobra Island. Finding everything secure, I went in search of the missing until January 5, 2011. Upon returning unsuccessful, I checked in with Destro and reported. The KGB said they discovered nothing amiss, and had no unusual occurrences despite a full investigation. I have been going over security, and have found no way to escape Cobra Island undetected. Interrogator.
January 12, 2011
- TO: Rank 6 and higher.
- From: Interrogator
Friday, January 7 2011, I received a report of a possible Baroness and Major Bludd sighting. Upon investigation, it was not them. Radio me for more information, if needed. I am back in Ohio trying to locate members of G. I. Joe to speak with.
Jan 22 - Welcome back
To: All Cobras
Welcome back. I hope the mission was a success. I was unreachable until today due to the fact I was in Medical from Thursday until today.
To: All of Cobra
Date: February 2, 2011
It is my pleasure to report that I have finished the yearly Naval psychiatric exams, which were conducted in a warehouse on Cobra Island. Thank you to all involved.
Mar 19 - Evacuation Plans
As we are on Destro's short list of potential targets, I would like all Gyro-Vipers to be ready to evacuate if necessary. Disregard this message if overridden by a Superior Officer.
Mar 19 - Evacuation Plans: Destinations
To: All of Cobra
- I would suggest we evacuate to either our base in Brazil or Columbia, but I am open for reasonable suggestions.
Mar 19 - Destro threatens Cobra Island
Apr 01 - Weather Dominator Plans Stolen Again
To: All of Cobra
The Weather Dominator plans have been stolen by a person or persons unknown. Destro told me this while I was checking in on him. He seemed rather shaken by this, but does not blame Cobra. I repeat Destro does not blame Cobra. I will keep you posted if I learn more.
Apr 05 - Visiting Dignitary
To: Cobra rank 7 and higher only
Today, April 5, 2011, Cobra Commander sent Crimson Guard 1930 and I to pick up Baron Eisenblut from our Eastern Stronghold and deliver him to Cobra Island. The Baron said he knew his way around the Island, so I only escorted him through Security.
Apr 20 - BAT Schematics
To: All of Cobra Research and Development, and ranks 6 and higher.
Inclosed with this message are BAT schematics from X that his previous versions have come up with. I have searched, and not found any viruses or malware attached to them.
(Location of schematics on a server on Cobra Island.)
May 04 - X's Over Kill Project Amalgram
To: Ranks 7 and higher
X has compiled an amalgam of the past Over Kill versions that will "In the combination I will remove the parts of the personality cortex that caused the problems. The things that an Over kill unit does not need. Imagine one that can build like mk4, one that has the tactics of mk1 one that has the knowledge of humanity of mk2, one that has the aggressive tendencies of three. The flight capabilities of myself." He also says "This unit would be incapable of being disloyal. It would be incapable of questioning orders. It would be incapable of betrayal." All he needs to do is place the program in a body.
May 11 - Crimson Kill Test Results
TO: Ranks 6 and higher, Research and Development
After grading the tests the new Over Kill Unit, Crimson Kill, took, I am ready to post the results. Its IQ test came back average, with strengths in engineering. His personality showed loyalty to Cobra and a willingness to learn. His problem solving skills also came back as average. The scores may be improved if it is decided to add a Human brain, either from a donor or by growing one in Research and Development.
Jul 25 - G.I. Joe attack
To: Cobra forces
On August 24, 2011, a small number of jets and helicopters flown by G.I. Joe attacked. I shot down one Apache. The only survivor was Scarlett, whom Over Kill and I fought on the ground. She fired a crossbow bolt at us that contained a net that entangled us and fled into the desert. One of my gunners cut us loose after I radioed for help. I will be in the Terror Drome's medical receiving treatment for my wounds. Crimson Kill performed well during the battle.
Jul 25 - An Encounter with Scarlett
To: All Cobra
I am dictating this report to my gunners, who assure me will deliver it. Over Kill encountered Scarlett and engaged. I arrived on the scene to assist. Scarlett has managed to damage Over Kill to the point he is inactive and I am going into surgery. Scarlett was injured very badly, and I do not think she will be able to survive long.
Nov 06 - Flagg Attacks
To: Cobra Command
Today I learned the USS Flagg has come under attack by the Decepticon Scourge twice. G.I. Joe managed to drive him off. Major Bludd has the report on the attacks. G.I. Joe was reluctant to give me any information.
Nov 16 - General Hawk
I met with General Hawk and he told me we will be splitting our forces. The ground forces will be going to Antarctica and the air force and navy will be attacking the North Pole. Although he did not give a definite date or time, he did say we would attack soon.
May 19 - May 18 Encounter with Duke
Yesterday I went out hunting for Duke. I found him in Abidjan. He fled and I caught up to him. Due to my driver not being willing to shoot at Duke with me so close to him, Duke convinced the driver to drop his gun. Duke then fled in our jeep. I do not believe my injuries are severe enough to warrant a return to Cobra Unity, as most of the injuries to myself were inflicted during hand to hand combat.

Aug 08 - G.I. Joe base on border destroyed
To: All Cobra Operatives
Date: August 8, 2012
- Today, Tele-Viper 911 received a report from our soldiers on the border that G.I. Joe were attempting to build a base in Iraq. Crash Dive and I investigated further and engaged G. I. Joe forses at the base. There was an Unknown G.I. Joe operating a Mauler and another one operating an Equalizer. My Mamba was hit and I had to retreat, but not before I managed to fire a few missiles at the base while Crash Dive kept the enemy vehicles occupied. In the end, the Baroness had Major Bludd call in a Rattler airstrike on the base that destroyed it.

Oct 30 - Meeting with General Alawai
To: Cobra Command
General Alawi of Trucial Abysmia has proposed Cobra make a 20 million dollar investment in Sheik Mohammed's campaign in the upcoming Trucial Abysmian elections. The elections take place in two months. In exchange for our investment, Cobra would get access to Trucial Abysmia's considerable resources for at least as long as the seventeen year old Mohammed rules. Mohammed will not have elections again in his lifetime. General Alawi is a tradionalist, along with Sheikh Mohammed. They are both upset by Sheikh Saud's (Mohammed's father) recent liberal bent. There is another man, a former political prisoner named Anwar Assan. He is even more radical in beliefs that Sheikh Saud. The General believes he is not a threat and does not want him harmed so the General can observe him and his followers. I was received lavishly, and The General's hospitality was endless. I would strongly recommend supporting Sheikh Mohammed, who would be easily controlled by us by controlling his lavish lifestyle.

Jul 15 - Okefenokee Swamp BattleDreadnoks when the fanboats ahead of mine were attacked by a large mechanical turtle . I was thrown from the fanboat when the driver whipped the boat around and fled. I landed safely. With the rest of the fanboats fleeing or destroyed, the monster turned its attention to me. Fortunately, a Dinobot who latered identified himself as 'Snarl' heard the CNN broadcast and airdropped. He engaged the turtle, who also transformed during the resulting battle. I noticed a strange symbol on the turtle robot's chest. [Cellphone pictures of a symbol that looks like a green face in the shape of a skull]
During the battle, I radioed for help and received the aid of WORMS 2111 and her MAGGOT. Both her and her vehicle saved my life. Her and her vehicle were prime examples of Cobra's excellent training and innovative technology. I was disappointed to discover the MAGGOTs have been mostly decommissioned, as they seem idea for fighting Cybertronians. I would like to recommend WORMS 2111 for a medal, and full repairs to her damaged vehicle.
Jul 15 - Okefenokee Command Report
Date: July 14, 2013
The Autobot Snarl also saved my life during the fight. I deliberately neglected to put that in my report as I do not want the rank and file to start feeling anything positive about the Autobots, which may interfere with their duties. I was able to study both Cybertronians, and they were both highly resistant to damage. The turtle seemed to have superior firepower, as it hit the MAGGOT with great force twice. After the turtle was driven off, an Autobot shuttle with a pink and chrome Femme arrived. Snarl identified her as 'Elita bot'. The turtle mentioned 'Masters' several times during the battle, and when I asked Snarl what he could have been speaking of, he mentioned "Quintesons". He said the Quintesons were slavers who enslaved Cybertronians and would not hesitate to enslave Humans. He also said they were 'Very bad'. I identified myself to Snarl as Medi-Viper 720 and asked him to contact me by radio (+radio) if he had any more information. I also gave told him to radio Major Bludd if he prefered speaking to someone higher on the chain of command. This new species of Cybertronian should be considered highly dangerous, but I did not want to alarm the rank and file. I am available to discuss this further at any time.

Jul 15 - L.A. Invasion
Date:July 19, 2013
While going to retrieve Zartan from Los Angeles, the Quintessons invaded the city. Both Nightgaunt and myself were shot down, but not before I had the Mamba record everything. Angel, Zartan, my gunners, and myself are all right, due to the assistance of the Autobot Lodestone. Zartan disappeared after I handed him a duffle bag with the Mamba's black box inside that contains all the intelligence I gathered. Zartan confirmed he had escaped and was all right when I radioed him after I got clear with my gunners. He still has the black box. Angel and Nightgaunt decided to stay in Los Angeles with Lodestone to gather more intelligence. They will be in touch.
Cobra Forever, Interrogator
Jul 22 - L.A. Operative Report
DATE: July 22, 2013
- Angels reports that he heard the head Quintesson order the Sharkticons to gather civilians for experiments. He was also unable to contact me via the Internet, where he goes by 'Death'. I am going by Interrogator on the Internet currently so others may be able to contact Cobra. Angel does not know how much longer their supplies will last, and an air drop is not feasible because of the strength of the Quintesson's defenses.
Jul 22 - Los Angeles Update
TO: Ranks 6 and Higher
DATE: July 29, 2013 The G.I. Joe lowdown was able to destroy an Executioner, but he is MIA. Angel found Wiretap and the G.I. Joe Chance in a building during a supply run. Chance said he was going to blow up a bridge to slow the Sharkticons. Angel and Lodestone successfully planted an electronic surveillance device on a Sharkticon and believe they are cutting up live humans to experiment on them, from what they heard. They also located the Autobot Encore, who is sheltering near their location. Cobra Forever,
Jul 31 - Mamba's Black Box Report
Aug 02 - Quintesson Machine
TO: Ranks 6 and higher
- The Quintessons have a machine that is capable of turning our planet into what must be Quintessa. Here are the pictures:
- The Sharkticon quells beneath its Master's lash, quickly scrabbling to rejoin its comrades. Acerbitas shifts around to the pharoanic face of judgement, coldly intoning, "This planet gave birth to the temporal wave that obliterated Quintessa. This shall be a fitting punishment..." A number of Quintesson Scientists move into position beside the device, which vaguely resembles an enormous vacuum. They pull various cables from panels on the machine, extending long, sharp probes which they plunge into the ruined tround at the base of the Bellum.
A single Scientist moves toward a control panel on the side of the machine, but a flicked tentacle from Acerbitas causes it to back away. The Grand Warlord drifts toward the machine on its beam of energy, shifting around to the green-capped skull face, "Let the sentence be carried out!" The Quintesson's tentacles dance over the control panel. The machine gives a great shudder before settling into a soft, almost hypnotic hum. The ground around the probes begins to glimmer, as if the light were dancing across the silvered metal surface of the machine. However, the glimmer begins to spread further than it should. Inch-by-inch, the ground begins to smooth out, adopting a metallic sheen...
Aug 05 - L.A. Extraction
TO: Ranks 6 and higher
DATE: August 5, 2013
- The extraction was successful. Angel was severely wounded, but is recovering well. Although the losses to personnel were slightly higher than I expected, the assistance by the Autobot Reverb and the Decepticon Nightlash helped keep the losses low. Wiretap managed to plant one of the video bugs on a Sharkticon, with assistance from the G.I. Joe Lowdown. The Red Cross is handling the civillians we rescued.
Aug 14 - Nightlash
Date:August 14, 2013
The Cybertronian known as Nightlash, whose aid has been immeasurable, has requested repairs and upgrades to her systems. She is the one who transforms into a Night Raven. I believe she has earned them. She does not want to take what she needs by force. Cobra Forever,
Aug 21 - Laboratory 17A
To:All of Cobra
Laboratory 17 was blown up this morning by an unknown assailant. The assailant was about 6 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing an orange plated suit of armor. He appeared to be a cyborg with claws and highly advanced weaponry. I was severely injured during my attempt to thwart the intruder and Viper Guard 910 was fatally shot by the intruder. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. Laboratory 17A was completely destroyed, and the surrounding laboratories were also damaged. Repairs are ongoing.
Aug 24 - Nightlash, pt 1
To: Ranks 6 and Higher
- Nightlash was heavily damaged, and as ordered, I am bringing her up to the standards of our own Night Ravens by replacing the Soviet parts and installing the proper MARS systems. She was definitely made by us. A Tech named Ritter fused Cybertronian technology with out own to create her. I have learned more of Cybertronian psychology, at least how the hard wiring works. I am unsure if my standard hypnosis techniques will work. I will cover what we found in Nightlash's memory banks in my next report.

Aug 24 - Nightlash, pt 2
To: Ranks 6 and Higher
Nightlash had a separate memory partition that she was unable to access. We investigated the partition and discovered the lead tech on her project, a man named Ritter was planning on using her to assassinate Cobra Commander. I had the contents of this partition downloaded to a server here on Cobra Island and then deleted from Nightlash's memory. Nightlash managed to assassinate most of the team, but Ritter recaptured her and tried to shut her down permanently. This is where I believe she partitioned off her memories of Ritter and the experiment. I believe Ritter is still alive and possibly still plotting against Cobra. I have also included further details on what else is necessary to bring Nightlash up to standards.

Aug 25 - Cyborg Samples
To: All of Cobra
While observing the attack on Offut Air Force Base, I noticed a horde of what appeared to be Cyborgs working for the Quintessons. Research and Development would like a sample of one of these.
Aug 25 - Cybertronian Psychology pt 1
To:Ranks 6 and Higher
- From what Nightlash has told me, there are three parts to a Cybertronians mind. The first is the laser core, which is like the subconscious. She also likened it to the heart or soul. Next are the processors, which dictate action and response, similar to how our brains use our senses to perceive and then formulate actions. The Algorithms are what make the processors function and are programming, or reasoning. I will hopefully be able to expand upon these finding and present a more precise definition and explanation of function after more research.
Nov 26 - Angel
To: All of Cobra
On November 24th, Angel was captured by G.I. Joe. He does not know where they are holding him, but he has not been charged with anything. I want all operatives in the area to hunt for him. Wiretap, I would like you to trace his cellphone, which they are currently letting him use.
- You are not to attempt to rescue him, as he is showing signs of Stockholm syndrome and is having doubts about him doubts about Cobra. Instead, report his location to me and I will decide what to do from that point. He may not be willing to be rescued.
Dec 04 - Angel Follow Up
Angel has been released, but is on medical leave. Please continue to keep tabs on him.

I have been working with the Quintesson Technology we were able to recover in Moscow and Los Angeles. I am ready to test a way to hypnotize Cybertronians and to poison them. Please keep me informed of any Cybertronian activity.
