In the brief preview video above, Ubisoft gives us our first look at Rainbow Six Siege‘s new operator, Jackal, one of two coming as part of the Velvet Shell Operation.
Here’s his official background info:
Ryad Ramírez Al-Hassar was nine years old during Spain’s political transition, but did not feel the full the impact of these changes until later on. His focus was somewhere else entirely, as he was shifted from one dysfunctional family to the next. A few years later, Ramírez was taken out of the foster care system by his older brother, Faisal, who was now old enough to become his legal guardian.
The Ramírez brothers first appeared in official records on October 8th, 1985 when Ryad was found next to his brother’s dead body in an abandoned house in El Principe Alfonso. Ryad was 17 years old and required urgent medical assistance. With no witness, no murder weapon, and no clear motive, the local authorities treated Faisal’s death as an inconclusive case of street violence.
After that night, Ryad was determined to unravel the events that lead to the loss of his brother. When he turned 19, he finally passed the mandatory qualifications and entered the Cuerpo Nacional de Policía. To further hone his skills on the field, he became a member of the G.E.O.
Jackal’s unique ability and more info will be revealed during the Six Invitational starting February 3.
