Otis

(aka Dreadhead Otis)

File Name: Theodore I. Smith of Auburn, Alabama.
Notes: The Dreadheads' names are a play on Smith & Wesson handgun manufacturer, actually located in Springfield, Massachusetts. Also, Winston Smith was the lead character in George Orwell's 1984. Auburn, home of Auburn University, was a town built up by the G.I. Bill. Located about 35 miles northwest of Columbus, Georgia, it is also the hometown of Beach Head, as well as Lt. Gen. Hal Moore and musician Jimmy Buffett.



Previous character: Billy-Bob

DREADHEAD OTIS is the eldest cousin of a wealthy family with along history in the firearm manufacturing business. His infatuation with power is only matched by his appetite for mayhem. He's used to getting things "his way," no matter what the consequences. After becoming an outcast in his hometown, he sought out his younger cousins to create a biker gang to terrorize the county. As their leader, he uses their insidious talents to fulfill his whims and eradicate anything that impedes their pathway of destruction.
Using his cousins to gather information about the COBRA organization, he found a weak opening to exploit in their favor. DREADHEAD OTIS is the mastermind behind the new recruits' plan to infiltrate the Dreadnoks gang and exact revenge on the G.I. Joe member known as BEACHHEAD. It has taken many years to track him down, and he isn't getting away this time.
"I love the smell of burning tires in the morning."
