ROOK specializes in the art of lie detection without the use of polygraph machines, computer voice stress analysis, or truth serum. Instead, he observes the subtle differences in the timing and duration of emotional gestures, expressions, and words. These differences will instantly reveal to ROOK if his contact is lying. Now take this skill and multiply it by the 14 different languages that ROOK is proficient in, add the fact that he does 90% of his work in dark alleys, secret rooms, and rooftops, and you begin to get a picture of why GENERAL ABERNATHY was so interested in recruiting him for the G.I. JOE team.
"His fellow STEEL BRIGADE members know that playing No-Limit Texas Hold-'em poker against ROOK is pointless. Why? He knows you're bluffing before you know it yourself."
