Laughing Wallaby was a female British former high-ranking official in[1] and co-founder of[2] the South African Private Force Contract Forces of Africa (CFA).

Biography

Pre-Phantom Pain

Largely because of the CFA's ties to South Africa, and by extension to the British, the woman who would become Laughing Wallaby was among the high-ranking officials who were of British origin.[1][2] Eventually, one of her fellow British members and co-founders of the CFA, the Viscount, illicitly managed to find a deed to oil fields (which were actually MPLA-owned).[3] Although she was reluctant to keep quiet about it, the Viscount nonetheless told her to do so for the time being.[4]

Phantom Pain Incident

See also: Hospital Escape and Phantom Pain Incident

Eventually, the CFA, or more accurately, the Afrikaner portion of the CFA, uncovered evidence to what the Viscount did. She then was proverbially thrown under the bus by the Viscount to save his own skin by making it seem as though she and the other British officials had plotted the entire thing, exploiting the known feud between the British and Afrikaner members[3] stemming from the Boer War,[5] although this backfired and resulted in Viscount's own capture.[3] She was then imprisoned at Kiziba Camp, with her and the others undergoing brutal interrogation due to the extreme circumstances.[6]

Eventually, she was interrogated for the last time by the Afrikaner interrogator, with an interpreter proceeding to act as a relay between her and him. In addition, one of her compatriots was also interrogated alongside her to ensure both talked,[7] and after the interrogator got what he needed, ordered for both of them to be killed, despite her compatriot's protests that she had very little to do with the oilfield plot.[4] Ultimately, Diamond Dogs, who were in the area to rescue the Viscount, proceeded to rescue her and the compatriot despite being ordered not to by their client (who had secretly been the Viscount via a cutout).[3][8][9][2]

Upon being rescued, she as well as the other POW interrogated alongside her informed the deputy commander of Diamond Dogs, Benedict Miller, with various details about the target, the latter that the target, the Viscount, would be interrogated at night,[10] and the former the field of movement for the Viscount's prisoner interrogation transfer path,[11] and presumably revealed enough details about what had occurred to have Miller and the other Diamond Dogs members deduce what had actually happened.[3]

Behind the scenes


Laughing Wallaby is a character in Mission 14: Lingua Franca of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. She can be found near the cages portion of Camp Kiziba. She is the subject of two mission tasks: One involves rescuing her and the other POWs in addition to the Viscount, and the other involves listening in to their interrogations, including that of the Viscount. Rescuing her and/or any other POWs will result in the debriefing being extended to mention the Viscount's role in the incident.[3] This article assumes Venom Snake rescued all the POWs. Laughing Wallaby is not named in the mission itself, but it is the name given to her when she is extracted and recruited into the Mother Base staff.

Even though the mission briefing explicitly mentioned her and the other POWs as being of British origin, Laughing Wallaby is shown speaking in a more American accent.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller: Several high-level British CFA [Contract Forces of Africa] officials are being held captive by their Afrikaner colleagues. One of these prisoners is the rescue target, a guy known as the "viscount." The target's location is unknown, but they're bound to have an interpreter present when they interrogate him. We've used info from the Intel Unit to predict the interpreter's location. It's on your [Venom Snake's] iDroid. Follow the interpreter and extract the target when you find him.

    Kazuhira Miller: There's a violent power struggle going on within the Contract Forces of Africa - the PF that ran security for the Mfindda Oilfield. Most of their key people are Afrikaners, but naturally for a South African organization, some of its founders are British. Details are sketchy, but apparently the Afrikaners are holding these British personnel for interrogation near Kiziba Camp. We've been asked to rescue one of them, a man known as the "viscount." We don't have the viscount's exact location, but he doesn't speak the Afrikaners' language, Afrikaans. They'll need an interpreter who speaks English in order to interrogate him. Meaning if we tail the interpreter, he'll lead us right to the target. By the way, the contract specifies that it's alright to ignore the other British prisoners... But the final decision is yours, Boss.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller: Boss [Venom Snake], one of the other British prisoners filled us in about the viscount. It turns out he's a real two-faced son of a bitch. He was planning on securing the MPLA's oilfield rights for himself in exchange for swapping the CFA's alliance from the anti-government UNITA rebels to the state-backed MPLA. He hid this from the Afrikaners, but once he thought the jig was up, he tried to pin it on the other British personnel and take off. The Afrikaners captured him, and that was when he asked us [Diamond Dogs] to rescue him and only him. I'll throw him in the Brig for now, but... we may have to be extra "persuasive" with this one. By the way, Boss, we got some interesting news out of our friend the "viscount." He mentioned that more than a few PFs in the region have purchased Walker Gears. The CFA's the same. That's Soviet Army technology... and it's still a prototype. Only Cipher could be leaking it to the PFs. But the question is... why?

    Afrikaner interrogator: All right, now you can both talk to me. Where did you get the information on the MPLA's oilfield rights? // Afrikaner interpreter: Now you will both talk. Where did you get the information on the MPLA's oilfield rights? // Male POW: We don't know anything, I swear! // Afrikaner interpreter: He says he swears they don't know anything. // Female POW: Believe us... // Afrikaner interrogator: You expect me to believe you attempted to contact the MPLA based on information from an unknown source? // Afrikaner interpreter: You mean you attempted to contact the MPLA based on information from an unknown source? // Male POW: We thought it was suspicious, sure. But we stood to make a lot of money out of it. // Afrikaner interpreter: It was suspicious, but they wanted to make a profit. // Male POW: We're businessmen... // Afrikaner interpreter: We're businessmen. // Afrikaner interrogator: Businessmen - what a joke! Failed mercenaries trying to skin this country. // Afrikaner interpreter: You're a joke, not businessmen. Failed mercenaries trying to skin this country. // Female POW: We didn't... we didn't try to hide anything... The viscount said to keep quiet for now, that's all... // Afrikaner interpreter: She says they didn't mean to hide anything, but the viscount made them keep quiet. // Afrikaner interrogator: Hah! So it's all the "viscount's" fault. Fine, the viscount can tell us the rest. // Afrikaner interpreter: Then the viscount can tell us the rest. // Male POW: W-wait! She had nothing to do with this! // Afrikaner interrogator: (swats the POW with the butt of his rifle) Don't worry. Hell has room for both of you.

    Afrikaner interrogator: Get up. // (British POW gets up) // Afrikaner interrogator: I'll give you one last chance. // Afrikaner interpreter: This is your last chance. // Afrikaner interrogator: The MPLA's oilfield rights - where did this information come from? // Afrikaner interpreter: The MPLA's oilfield rights - where did you get this information? // British POW: I told you, I only know it was an anonymous source... // Afrikaner interpreter: It was from an anonymous source. // Afrikaner interrogator: Who do you think you are fooling?! // Afrikaner interpreter: You're not fooling anybody. // British POW: Ask any of the others. Nobody knows anything. // Afrikaner interpreter: He says try asking the others. // Afrikaner interrogator: So they made up a story together. This is why you can't trust the British. You know how much the Afrikaners suffered because of you in the Boer War? // Afrikaner interpreter: You made up a story with the others. You British are all liars. You know how much the Afrikaners suffered because of you in the Boer War? // British POW: That wasn't me. // Afrikaner interpreter: He said "that wasn't me." // Afrikaner commander: But it was you that betrayed us. // Afrikaner interpreter: But it was you that betrayed us. // British POW: It wasn't me, it was the viscount...! // Afrikaner interrogator: Enough. (swats the soldier with his rifle) If you do not know anything, we're done here.

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller: Boss [Venom Snake], I did some digging, and it seems the target himself [the Viscount] gave us this mission through a representative. Obviously he couldn't contact us directly due to his predicament, but still, something about this "viscount" doesn't add up...
  9. ^ Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Kojima Productions (2015).
    Ocelot: That's [British POW] not the target [the Viscount]. Orders are, only the viscount gets rescued. Can't understand why he'd receive special treatment... But I don't imagine it'd be too much of a problem to save the other prisoners too.
  10. ^ Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Kojima Productions (2015)
    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller: That prisoner wasn't the target either. We got some more information, though - they're going to interrogate the target at night...

    Benedict "Kazuhira" Miller: This most recent prisoner wasn't the target either. But we did learn the target's field of movement.
