|HOLLOW POINT has an intuitive skill for the proper handling and maintenance of any weapon. He was working at a local safari park when a pack of lions escaped their enclosure, endangering a group of school kids. Leaping into action, HOLLOW POINT surveyed the terrain and used a tranquilizer rifle to take down the big cats, one by one. It was his quick read of the situation, pinpoint accuracy, and willingness to put himself into danger that caught the attention of DUKE, who recruited him for the G.I. JOE team.|
When new weapons become available, HOLLOW POINT is responsible for training the G.I. JOE team on their use, in addition to advising mission teams on the optimal use of terrain, firing points, and correct choice of ammo. Before joining the G.I. JOE team, HOLLOW POINT taught the Range Officer course at Quantico and served with the Marine Expeditionary Unit.
When a mission team needs support, HOLLOW POINT will fly the LOCUST vehicle, which in SPY TROOPS mode converts to a swamp buggy.
"COBRA forces are a nasty bunch, but their techniques are bad. It's my job to make sure we're better trained and more disciplined."
