KWINN is a mysterious mystic mercenary who had at one time worked for COBRA, but eventually ended up siding with G.I. JOE. He's an expert tracker, hunter, and woodsman who can speak eight languages including three Inuit dialects. Although unerringly accurate with pistol, long-range rifle, and harpoon, his weapon of choice is the belt-fed, air-cooled, .30 caliber machine-gun. A man of deep convictions, KWINN holds strictly to a code of honor that makes his word a sacred bond; he never lies, and never goes back on a deal. In the end, it was his adherence to his personal code that led to his downfall at the hands of a venomous COBRA scientist. Although KWINN had the doctor in his power, he overcame the dark urges that he called "the voice of the weasel spirit" and let the evil doctor go rather than become that which he despised.
"Break your word and you are a traitor not only to others but also to yourself."
