"There's a legend of a demon who lies in wait at night. Teeth sharp... Claws long... A smile wide and bright. It's strong, and fast, and silent. It's terror on display. Fear not if you are human. Monsters are its prey. But its fearsome reputation is a performance for the world. And demon laughs behind the mask. For she knows... she's just a girl."
Carver Butcher

Kim Tae Young is an Operator of the Harpy faction featured in Call of Duty: Vanguard and Call of Duty: Warzone. Tae Young was released during the Season Three content for Vanguard on June 12th, 2022 as part of the "Kim Tae Young Operator Bundle".


Trained by her mother as a fighter, Tae Young donned a mask to conceal her identity while helping families cross the North Korea border to safety. She soon earned a reputation amongst the Korean people as a local folk hero and keeper of justice. Even the briefest glimpse of her Dokkaebi mask instills hope in her people and fear in her enemies.


At some point, Tae Young was be recruited by Carver Butcher and the SOE into Task Force Harpy alongside Florence Carter and Mateo Hernandez. Harpy was tasked with intercepting a convoy of Nebula V bombs on the island of Caldera before they could be detonated.
