Biography[edit | edit source]
Prior to the campaign[edit | edit source]
Prior to 1981, the individual who would become Bell was a close associate and agent of Perseus. They were present during a meeting with Arash Kadivar, Anton Volkov, Vadim Rudnik and Robert Aldrich. Perseus exposed his fears about the United States' power slowly consuming the Soviet Union and the Soviet leaders doing nothing about it. He revealed his plan to steal an American nuclear bomb which could unlock the Greenlight nuclear arsenals based throughout Western Europe. From there, Perseus planned to detonate all of the bombs so he could alter the balance of power in the Cold War in the Soviet Union's favor.
While accompanying Kadivar to the Trabzon airfield, the agent is shot and left for dead by the former, jealous of the latter's status in Perseus' ring. Minutes later, CIA operatives Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Russell Adler assassinate Kadivar, with Adler finding the wounded agent afterward. Following their recovery, the CIA tried interrogation, to no avail. As suggested by Helen Park, Adler then decided to try brainwashing them through the CIA's MKUltra Project into trying to give up Perseus' location. Through pscyhologic torture, neuroactive drugs and hypnosis, MKUltra successfully implanted fake memories into the agent's mind and altered their personality. Adler gave them their nickname "Bell" and the catchphrase "We've got a job to do" whenever he wanted them to remember Perseus. However, Hudson wasn't so keen on having Bell as a member of Adler's team to hunt Perseus.
Betrayal[edit | edit source]
If Bell chooses not to reveal where Perseus truly is, they will lie to Adler, leading the group to Duga. During planning, Bell radios the Soviet Base to plan for an ambush. After arriving at Duga, the team berates Bell for lying to them. Adler is disappointed in Bell due to how much faith he had in them. Bell then signals the ambush, in which they are briefly knocked out by an RPG but later regains consciousness and is helped up by a Soviet soldier, Bell then proceeds to execute Mason, Woods and possibly either Park or Lazar.
After most of the team is killed, Bell follows the soldier into a building while the other Soviets wipe out the remaining American troops. The Soviet tells Bell that Adler fled into the building. They manage to find Adler who is fatally wounded, whom asks Bell to hand him his lighter so he can light a cigarette one last time. Whether Bell chooses to or not, Adler will be killed by them and the soldier will reveal his identity as Perseus.
Bell, now reunited with Perseus, is allowed to personally order the Greenlight nuclear bombs' detonation, destroying the reputation of the United States. The two discuss their plans for the future, and leave Duga together.
If Bell does not radio Soviet troops to ambush Adler's group, Adler will execute Bell while leaving their body for Perseus to find while his team leaves the scene with disappointment.
Truth[edit | edit source]
If Bell chooses to reveal where Perseus is, they will tell Adler about Solovetsky Monastery, the site where Perseus plans to detonate the nukes. The team goes to the monastery and fights off waves of Soviet soldiers while trying to disable the anti-air guns so that their air support can destroy the radar array and prevent nukes from being set off.
After returning from this mission, Adler takes Bell out to a cliff side and tells them that they are a hero for the sacrifices they have made. He then reveals he has to kill Bell due to them being a loose end and a high possibility of betrayal, as they both draw pistols. It is unconfirmed whether or not either person survives the incident.
