The Navy Captain was among the government-sponsored tour of the Big Shell in April 2009. He accompanied President James Johnson in an inspection on the progress of Arsenal Gear, and had a black briefcase containing the "football" handcuffed to his wrist.
The Captain was later caught up in the armed takeover of the Big Shell by the Sons of Liberty. He was eventually killed in the Strut B transformer room by Dead Cell member Vamp, who slit his throat and stole the football from him. SEAL Team 10 "member" Lieutenant Junior Grade Iroquois Pliskin and FOXHOUND member Raiden later discovered his corpse. Although Raiden was unaware of the significance of the severed handcuff, Pliskin quickly realized what he had been carrying, although he fainted due to blood loss from his encounter with Vamp moments beforehand.
Behind the scenes
The Navy Captain's character model was reused for the character of O'Brien in the Snake Tales scenario "Dead Man Whispers," included in Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance. The script included in the Document of Metal Gear Solid 2 calls him a Navy Colonel, even though "Colonel" is not a rank used in the United States Navy.
