!!Scott Ibrahim
-> Class: Sniper
Another 10th Infantry Regiment-turned-Special Forces member, serving as a sniper. Assigned to the Ghosts in 2007.
* TheArtifact: His bio was apparently finalized before his actual in-game class and weapon selection was, since said bio insists he's just as accurate with the M136 as he is with small arms, despite the fact that he can't actually use the M136.
* FriendlySniper
* NewMeat: In a relative sense, as while he's been with general Special Forces for two years, he's the newest addition to the Ghosts.

* TheBigGuy: Not as much as a Support specialist - being a Demolitions specialist means he actually gets one of the smallest regular guns, but he also gets access to things that make the biggest booms.

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Apparently reported back after leave one time with his hair dyed a bright pink.

A Lithuanian national champion shooter, her intended path has been currently cut short due to the incident with Russia, called up for active duty from the Lithuanian National Guard in 2007.

* ActionMom: She has a son who's, at the time of the current hostilities, about seven years old.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: She joined a rebel group around 2004 that ultimately succeeded in overthrowing the previous dictatorial government. Knowing that said government was sponsored by the US, she's not exactly happy to be accepting help from America or work with American forces, though the Ghosts eventually impress her with their professionalism.
* SmallGirlBigGun: Above-average height, but rather lanky in appearance and without any particularly visible muscle mass - so of course she's given the PKM, one of the biggest guns you can get in the game.

* PlayerCharacter
* TheSmartGuy: Handles all the tech in the squad, including use of the drone.
* TokenEnemyMinority: Kozak is the son of Russian immigrants. This comes up on occasion, mostly as teasing from 30K, but also by way of having Kozak interrogate a captured member of Bodark, relay messages in Russian to a loyalist general they're secretly assisting, and going solo on a covert mission to rescue the Russian president.

!!Ghost Lead
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: A particularly notable aversion, as he throws out basically every death card possible - [[FatalFamilyPhoto calling up his son]] before a dangerous mission with a hint of finality to it, talking to him about his birthday and [[WhenYouComingHomeDad promising to be home soon]], even jokingly suggesting [[{{Retirony}} he'll retire soon]] if Kozak can successfully pull off the preceding solo stealth mission - but still survives.
