RED SPOT built his first laser device when he was nine, after watching a science fiction marathon on cable TV. It was cobbled together from salvaged parts and items he bought from an electronics catalogue. His interest in light amplification kept growing, but it wasn't until he had joined the military that he realized the full potential of his field of interest. He has participated in development programs at various secret labs and many of the devices he uses in the field are his own designs or contain his modifications. Although he seems to be a classic geek, RED SPOT is better socialized than most. He has interest in other things besides electronics, plays centerfield [sic] in the G.I. JOE softball team, goes out on dates with real girls, and owns t-shirts without band logos or cute messages printed on them. He is also a world-class rated master in chess, and a ni-dan (2nd degree black belt) in Aikido.
"The theoretical stuff and the practical application to hardware are all fun stuff, but the real challenge is out in the field, crawling through the mud with tracers zipping by overhead. That's where you find out whether you're a soldier or not."
