This Centipede Serum infused soldier was a former soldier of the United States Armed Forces. He was recruited into the Centipede Project, a branch of HYDRA, founded by the Clairvoyant. The soldier became equipped with multiple Centipede devices, as well as a Backscatter X-Ray Eye Implant. He was one member of a group of Centipede soldiers who broke Edison Po from the Havenworth Federal Penitentiary.
The Soldier also participated in an ambush on Coulson's Team in Oakland, California, where he fought hand-to-hand with agents Grant Ward and Melinda May. He was soon ordered by Raina to retreat. After the ambush, he accompanied Raina to the foul exchange of Mike Peterson's son for Phil Coulson.
After taking custody of Agent Coulson, he stood guard as Po tried to torture information out of Coulson. He assumed the same duty while Raina exposed Coulson to the Theta Brain-Wave Frequency Machine. The rest of Coulson's team arrived at the scene, and the soldier battled with Agent Ward until he fell victim to the Night-Night Bracelet dendrotoxin. He was later taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D..
