"Tsu grows up with every luxury, wanting nothing, but he's a loner, incapable of bonding with family or friends. He's given a hard time at the flashy school he's at, so he starts exhibiting anti-social traits that even by his father's standards are way out of order. He doesn't target the bullies themselves, he goes for their mothers. Believe me when I say you won't want to know the details. LAPD called it aggravated rape, but for what he did that's a hell of a euphemism."
Qi Linbau, to Laszlo W. Kovic, about Tsu Yuntao, Battlefield 4: Countdown to War

Battlefield 3: The Russian
  • Solomon is a rogue Russian agent who works only for himself. Starting out as an orphan from a refugee camp in Lebanon in the late 1980s, he soon was recruited to the Soviet army, where he became a very gifted agent. Slicing off the heads of his bullies in school, Solomon killed many targets for the Soviets before abandoning them and helping the terrorists battle Russians. After some time, Solomon reasoned that "The world is out of balance. Something has to give." This leads to him entering CIA service to trick them into getting him close to Iranian President Faruk Al-Bashir, who he helped to overthrow his government and commit various terrorist acts. Manipulating him to get close to acquire the nukes, so he could steal them, Solomon immediately abandons Faruk, leaving for Paris, so he could plant the first nuke there, in a place where the illegitimate son of his former mentor Dimitri Mayakovsky worked, solely to hurt him, before leaving to plant the second nuke in New York, planning to destroy both cities to start a Russo-American war.
