Ice Storm is the G.I. Joe Team's cold-water marine combat and survival specialist. His job is to ensure that the team is able to fight and win under the most extreme maritime conditions. Prior to joining the Joe Team, he was a member of the British Royal Navy's Special Boat Service, where he was assigned to S squadron, which specializes in the use of minisubs and small boats. Although he was recruited primarily for his maritime skills, Ice Storm is just as comfortable on fighting on dry land and is often selected for long-range reconnaissance missions.
