Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Rose was pregnant with John during the Big Shell Incident. Rose told Raiden of the pregnancy after admitting that she had originally become his girlfriend in order to spy on him for the Patriots, before eventually falling in love with him legitimately. The baby's existence was threatened towards the end of the incident, when the Patriots ordered Raiden to complete his mission, warning him that they held Rose hostage and that they would kill her in addition to Olga Gurlukovich's child if Raiden did not kill Solidus Snake.

Rose gave birth to John sometime after the Big Shell Incident. However, she and Roy Campbell devised a plan to protect her son from possible danger as a result of Raiden's resistance activities against the Patriots. After Rose claimed that she had suffered a miscarriage, Raiden became disenchanted with his life, and began a long downward spiral of alcoholism and self-abuse, eventually breaking all ties with his former fiancée. Rose subsequently "married" Campbell, and John was outwardly raised as his son.

Liquid Ocelot's InsurrectionEdit

See Liquid Sun, Solid Sun, Third Sun, Twin Suns, Old Sun, and Naked Sin/Naked Son

One month after the collapse of the Patriots' system, the five-year-old John met his true father for the first time. Rose took John to see Raiden in the hospital, where she revealed the truth of John's parentage and the motivations behind her actions. As Raiden attempted to embrace him, John bashfully ran away to the other corner of the room. Enquiring as to whether he was afraid of him, John denied this and told Raiden that he was "cool," while brandishing a toy sword. As an avid sci-fi movie and anime fan, John had grown up with the romantic notion of a hero. Afterwards, the three finally began their lives as a family.

Post-InsurrectionEdit

John and his mother were later supported by Raiden's work for the PMSC Maverick Security Consulting, Inc.[1] Although John rarely got to see his father due to his work, the few times he did see him made him happy.

World Marshal IncidentsEdit

See Raid at World Marshal, Ambush at Africa, Abkhazian Coup, Investigation at Guadalajara, Raid at Denver, and Operation Tecumseh

In 2018, John and Rose were sent to New Zealand by Raiden, to ensure their safety as he hunted down members of rival PMSC Desperado.

Behind the scenes Edit

Little John is named after Jean Jack Gibson's robotic navigator in Snatcher.

Although Jennifer Hale is credited for providing John's English voice in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, many fans believe he was actually voiced by Nika Futterman. When questioned about this, Futterman claimed that she could not remember, since neither her nor her agent keep specific details on her roles. However, Futterman did say that it was likely, as Hale usually plays girls whereas she usually plays boys.
