Gregory Barrows[]

  • Age: 48
  • Hometown: Charleston, South Carolina, United States
  • Rank: Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army

The leader of the U.S. Bio-Weapon Special Operations Unit (a.k.a. the Hamlin Battalion) and the chief antagonist of Time Crisis 4. Unhappy from his lack of authority and treatment while serving in the U.S. Army's Secret Forces, Barrows believes that he has the right to do whatever he pleases by any means necessary, making him extremely dangerous. One example is engaging in a coup d'etat which involves retrieving the Battalion's Terror Bites for vile purposes, attacking Buckley AFB by surprise, and programming computer-controlled XA-60-Ex UCAVs to destroy every major city in the United States. His hard reasons for betraying his country remains a mystery as players will be able to know why Barrows did so in the PlayStation 3 conversion of the game. Barrows handles two Desert Eagle pistols with ease. Barrows wore a bionic left eye that perform two functions: it emit signals so that the Terror Bites doesn't attack Barrows, and also control the actions of the bio-weapons as well.[1]

Terror Bites[]

The Terror Bites are biological weapons researched, created, invented, and compiled by the Hamlin Battalion. Barrows, in an act of dissatisfaction on how the Hamlin Battalion were being treated, ordered the Hamlin Battalion to turn against America, and to utilize the Terror Bites as part of Barrows' aim to destroy the United States shortly after the Terror Bites were approved for use. In the game, there are four types of Terror Bites: a beetle-like creature, a mosquito-like creature, an armadillo-like creature that explodes, and a mantis-like creature. The beetles and the mosquitos attack in swarms, attempting to latch onto their victims and kill them. The armadillos expands its abdomen and then explode. The mantis usually fights alone or in pairs, splitting into three separate weaker offsprings when one is killed. The Terror Bites seem to be controlled and directed by specific radio frequencies. All members of the Hamlin Battalion, as well as Wild Dog, wear devices that emit signals so that the Terror Bites do not attack them. Specific members of the Battalion use devices that actually control the actions of the Terror Bites. These creatures serve as the game's central plot in Time Crisis 4.

Paulo Guerra[]

Paulo Guerra was the main antagonist of Razing Storm. He was the leader of a revolutionary movement against a South American nation, and the S.C.A.R. task force was sent to capture or kill him. His army consists of terrorists, militias and renegade soldiers, as well as hi-tech weaponries like the Raptor, H.A.C.S. Power Armor, and the "Kraken". His name was unofficial. He earned his name because he masterminded an attack on the United States with the help of some military groups.
