FROSTBITE was born in a place where summer is a myth and a crowd consists of two people standing on the same acre. He worked as a lineman on the pipline but found the job unchallenging despite hazardous conditions and 40 degrees below zero temperatures. He joined the army with the promise of endless challenges. He's an expert in all forms of transportation and can make his way through a blizzard of snow and missiles with a steely eye and a big grin. When the NEO-VIPERS ruined unspoiled tundra by turning it into a bio-weapons compound, FROSTBITE made it his personal duty to put them in the deep freeze, permanently.
"The cold north teaches you to always keep your cool, whether you're facing a wall of ice or a wall of NEO-VIPERS."
NEO-VIPERs are the next generation of COBRA infantry troops. These volunteers from COBRA's VIPER unit are genetically altered to withstand severe weather. To change them, COBRA gave them bio-tech engineering that regulates their body temperatures, so that they are not bothered by extreme cold or heat. COBRA also changed their reflexes so that they can move at lightning speed in any weather condition. They are dropped into COBRA's arctic bases to perform environmental sabotage missions and work at COBRA's secret weapons factories. Because they can work anywhere, they are sent in as reliable troops to do basic-grunt duties. They are the number one enemy of FROSTBITE because they destroyed unspoiled tundra land to set up a bio-weapons research lab.
"The G. I. JOE teams are no match for us, because they'll be freezing in their tracks while we're doing marathons on the ice."
