CID File #H2JK30JQ
IRON KLAW has gone to extreme lengths to conceal his true identity. Unconfirmed reports state that he currently operates under the alias of Count von Rani, the deceptively benevolent leader of Kalistan, a small Eastern European nation. It is believed that he assassinated the Royal Family of Kalistan so he could replace them and assume sole power over the nation's resources. He has also taken a position as leader of the military force known as S.K.A.R. (Soldiers of Kaos, Anarchy, and Ruin). Much like Genghis Khan, he abuses an extraordinary amount of power to enhance his personal empire without effective restraint. He rules by fear and anyone who opposes him is dealt with at the end of his bladed weapons.
IRON KLAW is a strategic mastermind and completely power hungry. He secretly plots military operations while investing large amounts of capital into acquiring new weapon systems and technology for his growing army. It is not yet known if he is an ally or adversary of the COBRA organization. Because his ultimate motives are unclear, and may be based simply on the destruction of existing world powers for its own sake, it is imperative that G.I. JOE intelligence investigate, infiltrate, and dismantle his operation before it can spread to any other nations.
No variations of Iron Klaw (v1) are known to exist.
