Impulsive, reckless, and passionate, Mason represents the best and worst of the CIA. A primary protagonist of the Black Ops storyline, he fought alongside Joseph Bowman and Frank Woods in the Bay of Pigs, escaped imprisonment in Vorkuta, prevented a massive Nova 6 attack, and was subjected to intense psychological interrogation and reprogramming. And that’s just a small part of his complex history.
Though his service record and reputation are mired in controversy, his effectiveness is indisputable. In Black Ops Cold War, he’s arrived just in time for the epic confrontation between Adler and Stitch. His history with foreign influences suggests he is unlikely to be receptive to the Numbers Program, making him a key component in the coming fight.
