Packaging Information

Filecard Information

File Name: Ayvazyan, Varujan
SN: 401-19-8426
Birthplace: Istanbul
Primary Specialty: Demolitions

Pay Grade: E-5 (equivalent)

The Renegades aren't carried on the rosters of any existing military unit. There is no computer access to their dossiers and they are paid through a special fund earmarked for "Pentagon Pest Control". This gives the Renegades a freedom of operation that the Joes can't match. It also means that the government can deny everything if they're caught.

Taurus was a circus acrobat in Europe who did occasional undercover work for INTERPOL. His circus act involved breaking two-by-fours on his own face, a feat which so impressed the G.I.Joe top brass, he was recruited on the spot. Taurus has been cross-trained in explosive and mountaineering and is fluent in a dozen languages.

"He's an animal. He stops hockey-pucks with his forehead and opens bottles with his nostrils. Lucky for us, he does everything G.I.Joe HQ tells him!"
