Scott Ibrahim

Class: Sniper
Another 10th Infantry Regiment-turned-Special Forces member, serving as a sniper. Assigned to the Ghosts in 2007.
  • The Artifact: 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.
  • Friendly Sniper
  • New Meat: In a relative sense, as while he's been with general Special Forces for two years, he's the newest addition to the Ghosts.

Dieter Munz

Class: Support
A Bundeswehr machinegunner who also spent time with GSG-9, and has served with the Ghosts since 2006.
  • The Artifact: Like Ibrahim above, his bio also insists he specializes with the M136 and even keeps meticulous count of how many vehicles he's killed with them, despite him not being a Demolitions specialist who actually has access to it.
  • The Big Guy
  • More Dakka: His primary weapons are machine guns.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Speaks with a random American-accented voice throughout the game like the rest of the Ghosts.

Nigel Tunny

Class: Demolitions
A former British Army EOD specialist who joined the Special Air Service in 2001, then was attached to the Ghosts in 2005.
  • The Big Guy: 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.
  • George Jetson Job Security: Played for Laughs - according to his bio, he threatens to quit "approximately once every three weeks".
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Apparently reported back after leave one time with his hair dyed a bright pink.

Jack Stone

Class: Sniper
Another British Army soldier/SAS operative, a sniper who has worked with the Ghosts since 2005.

Guram Osadze

Class: Support
A Georgian Army heavy gunner from 1991, attempts at increased cooperative effort between Georgia and the US saw him attached to the Ghosts since 2002.
  • Continuity Nod: A younger relative of his shows up as a member of a Georgian special forces team in Future Soldier, and he mentions Guram's service with the Ghosts, saying that he always spoke very highly of them.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: His bio states he absolutely loves American rap music.
  • Patriotic Fervor: His parents were instrumental in Georgia's transition from a Soviet satellite to an independent nation, and he in turn is extremely loyal to his country's freedom.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Taking a page from Guile, he apparently has a tattoo of the Georgian flag on his left bicep.

Astra Galinsky

Class: Sniper
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.

    Future Soldier 

The Ghosts (Hunter team)

Kozak

  • Cunning Linguist: Speaks Russian quite fluently, which comes in handy when the Ghosts are secretly helping loyalist Russians.
  • Player Character
  • The Smart Guy: Handles all the tech in the squad, including use of the drone.
  • Token Enemy Minority: 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

  • Black Dude Dies First: A particularly notable aversion, as he throws out basically every death card possible - calling up his son before a dangerous mission with a hint of finality to it, talking to him about his birthday and promising to be home soon, even jokingly suggesting he'll retire soon - but still survives.
  • The Leader: Is in charge of Hunter team.

Pepper

  • Cold Sniper: The team sniper and generally quite the professional.

30K
