Grinch is a Jackals operator of Allegiance that appears in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Grinch is unlocked after 100 headshots in Multiplayer or Special Ops.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Not much is known about the early life of Grinch, however his eastern bantu accent suggests he received a Western education. Grinch appeared to be educated in both Coalition and Allegiance battle doctrines combined with self-taught survivalism.

In 2017, Grinch was found by a Jackals patrol, lead by Commander Viktor "Zane" Metiko, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Three members of the Jackals were killed by improvised traps and sniper fire. Zane negotiated a cease-fire and contracted Grinch for the Jackals. Coalition intel later revealed payments from known Jackals shell companies to an anonymous off-shore account in the Cayman Islands.

In March 2020, Al-Qatala's new leader Khaled Al-Asad launched a full-scale assault against Verdansk in Kastovia. Operators from Coalition and Allegiance were deployed to Verdansk to stop Al-Qatala as part of the Armistice initiative.
