From the original filecard:

File Name: Kwinn, Jesse
SN: 134-52-JK33
Primary Military Specialty: Freelance Special-Ops Enforcer
Secondary Military Specialty: Tracker
Birthplace: Kotzebue, Alaska

Kwinn is a mysterious mystic mercenary who had at one time worked for Cobra, but eventually ended up siding with GI Joe. He’s an expert tracker, hunter, and woodsman who can speak eight languages including three Inuit dialects. Although unerringly accurate with pistol, long-range rifle and harpoon, his weapon of choice is the belt-fed, air-cooled .30 caliber machine-gun. A man of deep convictions, Kwinn holds strictly to a code of honor that makes his word a sacred bonds; He never lies, and never goes back on a deal. In the end, it was his adherence to his personal code that led to his downfall at the hands of a venomous Cobra scientist. Although Kwinn had the doctor in his power, he overcame the dark urges that he called “the voice of the weasel spirit” and let the evil doctor go rather than become that which he despised.

“Break your word and you are a traitor not only to others but also to yourself.”
