Allen Iishiba was a Sergeant in the United States Army's Counter Terrorist Unit Delta Force Bravo Team.
Iishiba was assigned by Roy Campbell to assist Solid Snake during a rescue mission to save Meryl Silverburgh and her crew when they became lost in an undisclosed hostile country. A third generation Japanese-American, Iishiba was known for his talkative behavior and his fascination with firearms. He joined the armed forces in order to prove himself to his childhood girlfriend Helena and was nominated to take the FOXHOUND recruitment test. While Iishiba managed to help Snake rendezvous with Meryl and escape, Iishiba was mortally wounded by enemy gunfire while reaching the extraction site. Before dying, he was officially recognized as a member of FOXHOUND by Colonel Campbell.
