Duke's the kind of soldier that knows how to get a mission accomplished fast and with minimal casualties. After 30 years of dedicated service to G. I. Joe and the fight for freedom, he continues to lead the G. I. Joe team against COBRA and its attempts to imprison the world in its evil grasp! Since joining the G. I. Joe team, Duke has applied his foreign language expertise, Special Forces experience, and leadership qualities to accomplish objectives most would label as impossible!
Feared by his enemies, but respected by his peers, Duke doesn't take any assignment lightly. From planning strategy to leading the troops into battle, Duke can overcome whatever obstacles impede his efforts to thwart Cobra's diabolical schemes. As the saying goes, "It's tough to keep a good man down." That fits Duke to a tee.
When it comes to taking on an enemy in the world's most inhospitable climates, Side Track is the perfect man for the job! When he was 10, and adventurous uncle took Side Track on a safari and from then on, he was hooked–no more city life for him! Side Track honed his unique combat skills by sneaking up on crocodiles, challenging them for drinking rights at watering holes. He's especially fascinated with the survival techniques of frogs. Who else could learn a breathing regimen from an amphibian that sits on lily pads? Since joining G. I. Joe, Side Track has helped his fellow team members learn how to survive in areas where the temperature is 120 degrees in the shade, with minimal water available.
His favorite vacation spot is the Australian Outback, not a place for lightweights. Every summer, Side Track takes a few of his G. I. Joe friends camping at his favorite site in the middle of the Bush. He doesn't tell them that they'll be 350 miles from the nearest restroom and that they'll need to forage for their meals. That would spoil all the fun.
