Continuing the look at the Others, we get to the most secretive and connected of them all. He's known only as the Operative. His exact country of origin is unknown, but the Operative appears to have deep connections to every government on Earth. He's called in favors from the Mexican military, Russian Peacekeeping Forces and South African Freedom Fighters. He's gotten intel delivered to him from the FBI, China's MSS and the Internal Security Organization of Uganda.
When designing the Operative protecting his identity was the most important element to his uniform.
Other than Aquaman, the Operative is the only member of the Others who has never gone into hiding. The Operative never stops until the mission is won. And in his line of work the mission is never won.
