Motto: "What I do is an attempt to defy gravity."
From the middle of the flat dusty Snake River Plain where ALPINE was born, he could see the mountains on the horizon in almost every direction, like a physical barrier between him and the world he wanted. He took up mountain climbing during college and continued as a recreational climber during his brief tenure as an accountant for a large publishing firm. Seeking more meaninful ascensions, he joined the Army, trained at Mountain Warfare School, Camp Ethan Allen and graduated Ranger School, Fort Benning. He was quickly recruited into the G.I. JOE team, where his unique specialty could be put to more important use.
ALPINE scales mountains piton by piton, overcoming granite and gravity with pure muscle and persistence. That's why the team sends him up first on all vertical assaults. He truly enjoys the challenge of the most hazardous of all conditions: climbing sheer cliffs, in unfavorable weather, weighted down by gear, with COBRA shooting at him!
No variations of Alpine (v6) are known to exist.
