Command; Extreme Desert Operations
4 - Sand Scorpion CO
As leader of the SAND SCORPION forces, NEUROTOXIN has an overabundance of the aggressive traits common to these desert fighters. Like all SAND SCORPION troops, NEUROTOXIN was hand-picked from the COBRA SAND-VIPERS to have his DNA recombined with that of scorpions to produce a more effective warrior. NEUROTOXIN is particularly ornery, though he exhibits unusual charisma among his troops. He is very powerful, but he has disdain for his new appearance and wants nothing more than to revert to his human form. Nonetheless, he brandishes his weapons with venomous fury, and leads his troops, a dust-covered whirlwind of doom, to stop the advance of the GI JOE team in most arid environments. Completely buried in the sand, he waits patiently in ambush. Sensing the approach of a victim by feeling vibrations through the packed desert floor, he erupts out of his burrow to attack. He carries a deployable back-mounted mechanical scorpion that can inject a powerful toxin that blocks neuronal transmission. NEUROTOXIN can then just wait while his troops move in and finish the job.
"The desert sand is not the only thing that will swallow you whole."
Like all Sand Scorpions, NEUROTOXIN was hand selected from the Sand-Vipers to be bio-mechanically enhanced.
Neurotoxin longs to be returned to a more normal human apprearance, and hopes that if he succeeds in his job, he will be granted his request.
