PSYCH PROFILE - GABRIEL RORKE
CIA - HR3650092326177 // PSYCHIATRIC REPORT - 10/02
Patient: GABRIEL T. RORKE
Rank: Captain - ACTIVE DUTY
GABRIEL RORKE was involved in Operation: Sand Viper, and is one of only fifteen operators who survived the conflict. For the past year, the traumatizing experience seems to have no effect on his combat readiness or mental sharpness.
If anything, I would say the experience has given him purpose. He seems more focused than ever. Calm. It's really quite inspiring, actually. Most soldiers I've come across have "dead" eyes - they just look right through me, as if I'm not even there.
Captain Rorke displays no medical hindrances, physical or mental.
Diagnosis: Combat Ready.
Doctor: How are you doing, Gabriel? Are you sleeping alright?
Gabriel Rorke: I'm sleeping fine. Honestly doc, you guys need to take a step back on this and let us do our jobs.
Doctor: Soldiers who've been through traumatic experience tend to indulge in their work, almost to an excessive level.
Gabriel Rorke: (sighs) You ever seen combat, doc?
Doctor: I've seen what it does to people.
Gabriel Rorke: Well, that's the problem. You've never had the choice of life and death in your hands. A little squeeze at the trigger and you've taken a life from this earth. In an instant, a living, breathing person is nothing more than a grease spot. Now why don't you imagine that happen to a friend? A brother, a father. Someone who's saved your life multiple times and a little piece of brass just takes 'em away. Forever. Lights out. So why don't you just write down whatever you think they should do to me, doc. Tell them I have PTSD or whatever the hell you want. But when that happens to a man on my team, it doesn't make me reconsider why I do what I do. Fact is, it makes me want to find the bastard that did it and show 'em why he messed with the wrong men. We do bad things to bad people, doc. The sooner you understand that, the sooner we can get back to work.
After the section in space, the game will return to Logan and Hesh. As they sprint from the back of the house in the firestorm, veer right. Enter the second house on the right, with a car in the front. Enter through the front door and the file on the living room floor.

LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
THREATS AGAINST THE WALL
CIA - SR91923000932-LW // DEFENSE SYSTEM VULNERABILITIES
Methods of Infiltration
We've seen an increasing number of attacks against the Liberty Wall. The source of the attacks, we believe, are Federation Recon Teams (FEDREC) operating in No Man's Land.
As of now, the attacks have slowed. However, our own FORCE RECON teams have reported an alarming number of civilian casualties outside the wall. A detachment recently discovered mass graves in the craters south of Los Angeles.
We were able to determine that Federation forces are attempting to find alternative ways into the city.
Thomas Merrick: We've been behind this wall for far too long. Now people have to decide if being left in here, or killed out there. We found another one of them today, a pit. The Federation fills them with civilians. They question them first whether they have answers or not, well, they all end up in the same place...A commanding officer thinks the Federation is looking for other ways into the city. Dallas was taken in the same way, but I partly can't help it, seeing this as a message. So we're going back outside the wall. Someone who knows how we operate is targeting us, I wanna know who. (sighs) I just hope we're prepared for what's coming.
During the cutscene with Elias, one needs to head to the second floor of the building. There will be TV cameras around the room; a laptop is sitting on the table in the middle of that room, to the right of Elias and Hesh.

CIA - SR13727199-G // TIER 1 POWs
Latest reports from OTW Recon show severe breaches in operator safety. Specific teams that have operated in these areas have proven effective so far, however, at this time, we believe their security has been compromised.
We are currently aware of three (3) operators who have gone missing or have been reported K.I.A. near Zones Romeo and Sierra.
Chris Greene - "Torch"
Riddian Poe - "Grim"
Alex Johnson - "Ajax"
Note: All operators are from the same unit - designation: STALKER
Victor Ramos: I've been to No Man's Land more times than I can remember now, and it still gives me nightmares. I'm convinced we will find what we need to, the effort will not be in vain. However, the captain has been acting more, aggressive lately. He nearly killed a young soldier for reporting in too late. Granted, the soldier required punishment, but the captain saw fit to prevent him from seeing ever again. This place makes him act differently, he gets paranoid, like, someone is watching him. Hm, best to stay on his good side then.
There will be a crane and a satellite outside a gray trailer during the mission. Enter the trailer, and the Rorke file will be to the right, sitting on a desk top.

CIA - SR13727201-G // ENEMY POSITIONS OTW
New intel from OTW Recon teams outside the wall show enemy fortifications along the outskirts of San Diego, CA, listed below.
An OTW team has tracked one of our missing POWs to a stadium a half-mile inland of San Diego. Designated FIREBASE CHARLIE by enemy forces, we believe this to be a Forward Operating Base for the Federation, and a staging ground for launching attacks against the Wall.
Intel suggests the enemy has been transporting POWs to this location and attempting to extract information via interrogation and torture. Due to the high level of security clearance these operators possess, we have issued protocols to ensure our safety.
Gabriel Rorke: I wanna know where it's at, Ajax. You know I'll find it eventually. C'mon, why put yourself through this?
Alex "Ajax" Johnson: I'm not telling you shit!
Gabriel Rorke: Ah, you wanna see how tough you are, I get that. But you don't need to die here today. I wanna save that for tomorrow, besides, everyone breaks Ajax. So you wanna tell me where the safehouse is? No? Alright...Let's keep going.

OPERATION: RETURN TO SENDER
CIA - LB000012995 // FEDERATION RISE TO POWER
TRANSITION OF POWER AND RESOURCES AFTER TEL AVIV WAR
After multiple conflicts in the Middle East, the invasion of Tel Aviv and the resulting collapse of energy and financial resources in the area resulted in crippling effects to First World countries - mainly those relying on such resources provided by allied governments.
With NATO and Allied Forces spread thin, other governments seized an opportunity to monopolize their own resources and consolidate power over neighboring countries.
Venezuela, Brazil, and Chile unite under one banner, calling themselves "The Federation". Within the next few years, a massive financial boost to the Federation's economy resulted in global dominance over energy markets.
Thomas Merrick: Rorke says we're going to Caracas, the lion's den. The Federation leader, Diego Almagro, ordered the execution of UN peacekeepers, twenty of them. After ripping them to pieces, he dumped their bodies in the ocean, and send them drifting back to us. We got the message. They called up the team, they want us to take care of the problem, our way. Rorke's calling it "Operation: Return to Sender". I've never seen him so driven, he really wants this guy dead.
After swimming in the flood waters and crossing the unsafe looking makeshift glass bridge, the player will have to shoot two enemy soldiers. The file is on one of the desks in the room, right next to a pistol.

LOCATION: Caracas, VZ
CIA - LB000017955 // VICTOR RAMOS - PROFILE
Name: Victor H. Ramos
Born: July 1st, ???? (1979 in French version)
Age: Unknown (47 years old)
Ramos is a high ranking officer in the Federation Science Division, in charge of covert operations outside of San Diego.
Intel suggests he is utilized and protected by the Federation because of his knowledge of reverse engineering classified technology. Former clients include China, Iran, and North Korea. His breakthroughs in kinetic energy through projectiles laid the groundwork for the Orbital Defense Initiative (O.D.I.N.) satellite.
He is one of the only people who deals directly with GABRIEL RORKE, and we believe he never stays in the same place more than twenty four hours.
Gabriel Rorke: I know they're out there. They're looking for me. Let's hope they do a better job this time. Victor's confident his prototype will work, and I agree, things are moving fast now. Hm, it's odd that the moment finally arrives, I still get that queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach, even after all these years. They'll go after him first, they'll break him to get to me. But now that his work is complete, he's become expendable. So let them come, let them find him, and find me waiting to bury them in the same grave they dug for their leader.

Birds of PreyEdit
MISSION: Birds of Prey
DETAILS: Gulf of Mexico
CIA - SR21945500 // OPERATION: DEADBOLT
A heavily damaged laptop was recovered from recent operations in Caracas, VZ, but we were able to pull critical data from the HDD.
From what the files suggest, Rorke moves every twenty four hours, much like Victor Ramos - a man in his employ. We are unsure of how many pre-designated locations are used, however we were able to extract a cluster of them from the laptop.
A series of oil platforms and government housing off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula is the next stop along his route. Called "The Freeport", we believe this area houses small-arms militia loyal to the Federation. This area is to be considered extremely hostile. The Freeport is our only link to Rorke and we are currently unsure of when his movement cycle will start over.
Recommended COA: UTILIZATION OF TIER1 TEAMS FOR IMMEADIATE ACTION
Thomas Merrick: Ever since Ajax's death I haven't been able to shake this feeling of unease. Rorke's alive, and he is hunting us. We managed to track him down to Mexico but I can't help but feel something is wrong. JSOC asked to have him, so they're sending in the team once again. Elias' boys, Hesh and Logan, I think about how they're paying for the sins we committed, how Elias is putting them in the sights of a mad man, and how they might be our only hope to stop him.
This one is easy; it is sitting on the desk in the room where Rorke is, facing the other way.
MISSION: The Hunted
LOCATION: Yucatan Peninsula
CIA - SR21945616 // ORDNANCE LAUNCHES IN YUCATAN
Aerial surveillance during OPERATION: DEADBOLT (see CIA - SR21945500) located simultaneous missile-like projectiles launching from a nearby jungle.
Exactly how many projectiles were used is unknown at this time, however allied forces in the area were able to determine at least six (6) of them were successfully launched. Long range tracking lost sight of them within minutes, though the angle of trajectory suggests the ordnance broke into upper mesosphere.
SAFETY MEASURES FOR U.S. CITIES Governing bodies of key U.S. cities have been notified, but at this time, the warning is preliminary. The most current intel we've gathered suggests the projectiles never returned to the stratosphere.
Victor Ramos: We've got the green light from the top, the satellite array can go operational. It is an impressive display of power and technology. I cannot help but feel inspired when I go there! How can man build such things? Invisible data controlling machines, machines that can destroy with such blunt force. The rockets themselves have been upgraded as well, they can reach their destination 150% faster than before. Not super exciting, but at those speeds, the operation can be completed in a matter of days. So far, I'm pleased with the results, I think my superiors will be as well. They're sending me to Caracas for Federation Day. Heh, there's much to celebrate.
After meeting up with Elias, there should see a waterfall. Follow the stream down the hill to where it ends. The file is on a ground level rock right around there.

CIA - SR24100706 // DAMAGE ESTIMATES
Below is a report taken from a recent intelligence-gathering operation in Federation occupied Argentina. These estimates are potential casualties of an attack that, as of yet, has not occurred.
TOTAL: 309,000 est. NEW YORK CITY, NY.
TOTAL: 5,681,019 est.
TOTAL: 1,510,400 est.
LOS ANGELES, CA.
TOTAL: 2,773,380 est.
The number of casualties on impact suggest the Federation plans on using nuclear or kinetic-based attacks on U.S. soil, though the latter is pure speculation at this point.
Gabriel Rorke: What happened?
Federation Soldier: I don't know sir! T-They came in through the security checkpoint, a-and we- we...
Gabriel Rorke: Spit it out soldier.
Federation Soldier: W-We couldn't find them! Once second they were here, and then they- they just...disappeared! I-I'm sorry sir! I don't know what happened! Everything got so chaotic! (hyperventilates)
Gabriel Rorke: You know our law son, you fail to protect your brothers, you join them in death.
Federation Soldier: No, please! No, please don't do this!
Gabriel Rorke: Take him to the river.
Federation Soldier: No!

OPERATION: BLACK ICE
CIA - AP1-385717 (TS) // THE SHOP
Intelligence gathered from recent operations in Southern Argentina points to a facility near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as a hub for Federation activity. The significance of this facility, referred to as "The Shop", is unknown, but appears to be of great importance to the enemy.
DIRECT ACTION OPERATIONS
Surveillance rotations have resulted in the loss of one UAV drone that was shot down by anti-aircraft fire. However, the drone was able to feed topography and enemy defense positions back to us.
The Shop is heavily guarded by a naval fleet on the perimeter of two possible entrances. Any direct action operations would require immobilization of this fleet. Utilizing STALKER on Atlas Platform proved successful. The Federation naval fleet was diverted to the wreckage, leaving one AEGIS-CLASS DESTROYER guarding The Shop.
U.S. Soldier: We were able to pick up some comms traffic thanks to the intel you've found. What follows is a distress call from a nearby ship in the Federation fleet.
Federation Soldier 1: Sir, we have multiple alarms originating from the Atlas Platform. They say they're under attack.
Federation Soldier 2: What about the perimeter forces in the area?
Federation Soldier 1: No response sir.
Federation Soldier 2: Get the admiral! Tell him we're under attack by American forces. I need all available resources to the location, now!
Federation Soldier 1: Yes sir.

Into the DeepEdit
MISSION: Into the Deep
LOCATION: Atlantic Ocean, South America
CIA - RDP921-1 // ADVANCED SYSTEMS OF THE FEDERATION NAVY
Repurposed and reversed engineered U.S. technology has devastated areas where our military was prominent (see 'CIA - RDP921-3'). Current reports indicate an upgraded Arliegh Burke Class (AEGIS) Destroyer being tested somewhere off the coast of Mexico.
The updated sonar-pulse system mimics that of a search sonar found on current AEGIS destroyers active within the U.S. Navy. A report suggests that human subjects (believed to be Federation Soldiers) were used in testing of the device. None were reported to have survived the blasts.
Only one repurposed AEGIS Destroyer has been confirmed. We can safely assume more are in production.
Victor Ramos: December 10th, 2018. The test of the new AEGIS Class prototype was successful. The real breakthrough was the addition of the sonic pulse to the bowel of the ship. The impulse of the pulse is strong enough to crush organs or shatter bones, we were fortunate enough to have test subjects donate their pain to science. With this ship we can keep our eyes focused above the water. Although my employer Rorke thinks I'm underestimating our enemy, I told him we'd run dozens of tests without a single soul avoiding the sonar pulse. Still, he seems to believe there are flaws, and certain men can exploit those flaws. Well...Back to the drawing board.
After destroying the ship and getting pinned, then swimming through the debris field, and before the place where there is a wave of enemy divers. Swim past the two trucks on the sunken boat and reach the end of said boat, the laptop is on a ground level rock just right of center view.
It should become visible almost immediately after passing the second truck. Drop down to ground level, turn around so the tailgate of the boat is in the center of the field of view, then rotate about 75 degrees to the left. The laptop is on the rock that should now be center view, with the screen facing the opposite direction.

CIA - IA699614202 (TS) // REVERSE ENGINEERED U.S. TECHNOLOGY
Following operations near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and IA of "The Shop" (CIA - AP1-385717), we have learned of reverse engineering (RE) efforts of the Federation to rebuild and enhance wreckage of the United States Orbital Defense Initiative (ODIN) program.
We believe that Victor RAMOS (see Library File LB000017955) aided the Federation in this effort before being declared K.I.A. in Caracas, VZ earlier this year.
As of June, we have confirmation from eyes on the ground and STALKER that these efforts proved effective. The Federation is in control of a working prototype of the ODIN satellite, referred to hereafter as "LOKI". We believe Gabriel T. RORKE is responsible for divulging classified ODIN information to the Federation, allowing them to complete a prototype of LOKI.
Gabriel Rorke: Improvements to the ODIN system far exceed what I originally expected. With the help of our quantum computers, Victor managed to shrink everything down, make it smaller, more efficient. Multiple firing platforms, all connected to the central hub, LOKI. This war is coming to an end, albeit a catastrophic one, hm, much in the same way it started.
After entering the missile bay, turn left after descending the stairs. The file is on a pile of stuff under the door.

LOCATION: Las Vegas, NV
CIA - IA700001892 (TS) // COMPROMISED GHOST SAFEHOUSE
Recently a location near Las Vegas, NV used by GHOST was compromised by former operator in the team, Gabriel RORKE. In the resulting attack, four operators were taken hostage and one, Elias T. WALKER, was killed in action.
The three remaining operators taken hostage underwent interrogation from RORKE, but we currently do not believe any national security was compromised. Debrief of the three operators concluded that RORKE'S intention was "...vendetta more than [intelligence gathering]".
RORKE was presumed dead during the events of Operation: Return to Sender, but we have since learned he survived and has been working for the Federation, primarily targeting members of GHOST.
Gabriel Rorke: The worst thing a man can have is hope, it's a vicious little devil. You can be alone, broken, beaten, dying, but it forces its way into your brain, keeps you hanging on. Eventually, reality sets in, overpowers it, shows you it's not necessary or wasn't even there to begin with. When a man has lost his hope and sees his fate for what it truly is, only then can he accept death, and treat it as an equal. Ajax learned that lesson. (chuckles) The look in his eyes when he told me about this place. I'll teach the rest of them the same lesson.

CIA - OA1005382-2 (TS) // OPERATION: BLINDSIDE
ADVISE: OPERATIONS ARE CURRENTLY UNDERWAY
NORAD has approved an offensive strike against a satellite array (SATFARM) in the Atacama Desert of Chile. The SATFARM is communicating with the Federation controlled satellite (CIA - IA699614202) in an attempt to coordinate kinetic strikes against the United States.
At this time, mobilization of forces is already underway at Fort Santa Monica. Additional coordination with SOCOM and utilization of GHOST requested. However, due to recent flaws of operational security assets, it is unknown if they can be of assistance.
David "Hesh" Walker: David "Hesh" Walker, Lieutenant, United States Army. (sighs) Still hard to imagine the world without dad. Nothing makes sense without him here. (sighs) I keep replaying that day over and over in my head. (sighs) That if I could've been stronger, or faster, (sighs) he'd still be here with me. (sighs) The only thing keeping me in a way, is without doubt finding Rorke, and making him pay. We're launching an operation to take him down and hit the Federation hard. Wherever he is, Logan and I will find him, and we'll send him back to whatever part of hell he crawled out of.
At the beginning of the level, in the room with the bunks, go to the door but do not leave. Turn around and go to the second set of bunks on the left. The Rorke file is hidden on the lower bunk on the right.
MISSION: Severed Ties
LOCATION: Atacama Desert, CL
CIA - OA1005382-3 (TS) // OPERATION: BLINDSIDE
The SATFARM communicates with FEDSAT to direct attacks, however the satellite is still capable of kinetic bombardment of areas without any assistance. These attacks would deal catastrophic damage to targets, but without SATFARM'S involvement, FEDSAT is firing blind.
A decommissioned space shuttle has been repurposed for a direct action mission aimed directly at FEDSAT. NORAD currently has an assault team standing by for tasking, should the SATFARM operation prove successful. With SATFARM disabled, FEDSAT will be vulnerable to attack, allowing us to put strike teams onboard the station itself.
Gabriel Rorke: They're sending everything they have to stop us now. One way or another, the tie's about to turn. I'm hunting my own men down, taking them away from this world by force if necessary, and now they want vengeance. Let them come, let them suffer the same fate as Ajax, as Elias. And his youngest though, Logan, he is different than the others. Boss wants him alive, a hundred soldiers for one more Ghost he says. (chuckles) Now that's a man even I can follow.
After launching the missile, follow Hesh downstairs, but not into the hallway quite yet. At the bottom of the stairs, make the second right, and then a left into a room.
LOCATION: Low Earth Orbit
CIA - OA1005382-4 (TS) // ENHACEMENTS OVER ODIN
Further developments from intel recovered from The Shop (see CIA - AP1-385717) show that the Federation Satellite (FEDSAT) is an upgraded, more streamlined enhancement of the original ODIN prototype.
Enhancements from intelligence gathered at The Shop described below:
- Tungsten rod variations
The U.S. operated ODIN used only 6.1 x 0.3m tungsten cylinders as projectiles. FEDSAT is using various sized rods not exceeding those of ODIN. This allows for impacts closer to allied forces without the fear of danger close fire.
- Necklace configuration
FEDSAT is subsidiary firing platforms controlled by a central HUB satellite. These platforms allow for a greater range of potential targets. Current intel suggest the United States and Allied European countries are at the highest risk.
Victor Ramos: The satellite array allows us to control it from the ground, giving us a safer approach than what was originally planned. All firing platforms can be utilized at the same time, or individually, should the occasion present itself. We have carved out a section of earth under the array for a command centre, we can even launch platforms from the same area. Hm, we have set up so many of these things that I've started to lose track. From reports gathering from the crew, everything is running smoothly, I would expect nothing less.
Just after the explosion, look between these arms of the satellite. It'll be near where the two enemy troops are met. It's quite hard to find as it will be floating in midair. It is somewhere near the broken vertical solar panel.

Yeah, this was more like Hell Year... after year, after year. (sighs) But I don't mean to make it sound so bad. I mean, this is what we wanted. Dad always said we could quit at any time, and go grab some fast food, and pig out in front of the TV all night. But... Logan and I, you know, we wanted more. Out there, we learned to guard each other, to hunt, to speak without speaking. Where we became men. We were a team. I remember a time we came out of the woods, Dad had asked us what we'd learned. "Always protect each other." We never forgot. Logan's got my back, and I got his. He's my brother.
