STORM SHADOW's heart does not know true evil, but the sins of pride and vengeance will forever haunt him. His association with COBRA, an alliance begun with just intentions, has stained his honor beyond recovery. Poisoned by COBRA ideology and subjected to brutal mind control techniques, the good man who was once Tomisaburo has been almost completely obscured by villainy. STORM SHADOW and SNAKE EYES both served in an overseas patrol unit. The two formed a close friendship during service, earning SNAKE EYES his invitation to study with the Arashikage in Japan. Despite the bond that once existed between them, circumstance produced an irreparable rift, changing the two former friends into bitter enemies. STORM SHADOW's allegiance to COBRA is as unwavering as SNAKE EYES' allegiance is to G.I.JOE.
