Motto: "I never think about becoming a casualty, I just save every life I can - without exception."
EDWIN "LIFELINE" STEEN was a paramedic with the seattle Fire Department for five years before enlisting in the Army as a corpsman. He was recruited by the G.I. JOE team and later volunteered to be part of the TIGER FORCE special operations unit. Even when not on assignment, he feels he is never off duty, and travels around the globe to cross train and stay on top of the latest life support, treatment, triage and evacuation techniques.
When something heavy comes down and a soldier is in no condition to walk out on their own, EDWIN "LIFELINE" STEEN is the one who goes in and extricates them. As a combat medic, he walks into a battle zone to give immediate medical treatment to those in need. Whiles his defensive training requires him to be able to provide cover fire to incapacitate enemies during resue operations, he prefers to utilize his black belt in Aikido, a Zen martial art with no offensive moves.
No variations of Edwin "Lifeline" Steen (v8) are known to exist.
