Birthplace: CLASSIFIED
Sam Stone is EZ Company's squad leader. As an expert in the subtle arts of demolitions and infiltration, Sgt. Stone is most at home during covert operations. The men under his command often refer to him as "Cap" or "Captain" even though he is clearly a sergeant.
"Oh look. There's an enemy tank. Perhaps we can disable it with some harsh language."

Secondary Military Specialty: Infiltration
Birthplace: CLASSIFIED
The man simply known as "Tex" is EZ Company's sharpshooter. He is rarely seen and spends most of his time on long scout missions that serve little purpose other than to make sure everyone knows he's living up to the lone-wolf stereotype.

Primary Military Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Military Specialty: Artillery
Birthplace: CLASSIFIED
Charles "Slim" James is EZ Company's one-man front line. Someone put a grenade launcher on his rifle. He's never been happier. He is good friends with Doc, mostly because Charlie's primary battle tactic is to be in the worst possible place at the worst possible time.
"Besides, what's he gonna do? Shoot at us?"
Code Name: Lancer Puma
File Name: Roy G. Bivowitz
Primary Military Specialty: Anti-Tank apparently
Secondary Military Specialty: Infantry
Birthplace: CLASSIFIED
Roy G. Bivowitz is EZ Company's newest member. This is why A) They call him Rookie and B) he's the one stuck with an anti-tank weapon.

The Enemy

File Name: Habib Al Omar
Primary Military Specialty: Counter-Intelligence
Secondary Military Specialty: Laundry
Birthplace: UNKNOWN
Habib Al Omar was shuffled through the ranks until he landed a position as Chief of Counter-Intelligence and Interrogation at Hill 403. Due to the non-existant strategic value of this camp, Habib's talents have gone to waste. This has only encouraged him to practice them daily on his comrade.

Primary Military Specialty: All forms of combat
Secondary Military Specialty: Cooking
Birthplace: UNKNOWN
Mikal Al Abir was the only soldier stationed at Hill 403, the tactically least important fortification under enemy control, for three years. He suspected his commanders had forgotten about him. Then they sent Habib Al Omar. He'd rather have been forgotten.
"Oh, that's the jerk detector. It detects you."
