The calm and determined battlefield commander of the GI JOE Team is always out in front, leading by example, never asking a team member to do a job he wouldn't do himself. His experience and coolness under fire bolsters morale and gives the GI JOE Team a firm anchor to hold onto even in the worst situations. Offered a battlefield commission, he turned down the chance to be an officer because he felt it would distance himself from his troops. A hard charger, but understanding and fair, he believes in his heart that decency, honor and freedom must always prevail over malevolence, deceit and tyranny, no matter what the cost. He hopes to defeat the latest COBRA threat-human-animal hybrids-by building advanced combat systems that are lined closely to their human operators.
"We're the good guys and they're the bad guys. The job of the good guys is to put the bad guys out of business."
No variations of Duke (v20) are known to exist.
Duke (v20) was created using the entire mold of Duke (v16) (2004).
