Incredibly self-involved and lacking in empathy, the BARONESS has all the primary qualifications of a world-class oil company executive or corporate raider. Born in wealth, she was a student radical and dabbled in extremist fringe groups before aligning herself with COBRA and worming her way into the confidences of both COBRA COMMANDER and DESTRO. Nominally designated the Director of Intelligence for COBRA Command, her duties actually covered a much wider range of loathsome activities. More recently, her allegiance seems to have shifted markedly toward DESTRO, but it remains to be seen if this is simply a scam. Coldly cynical yet hopelessly romantic, calculating but naļve, brutally blunt and prone to beating around the bush at times, the BARONESS is a mass of contradictions. The one glaring consistency in her muddled thought processes is her intense hatred of the G. I. JOE Team, with FLINT being singled out for that special dislike she reserves for those she suspects to be her betters.
"The ideals of COBRA are the true reflection of the self-serving masses that comprise the 'me generation.' What fairy tale fantasy about valor, loyalty, and integrity is the G. I. JOE team upholding?"
