"Sometimes, the only way to save a life is to take one."
General Summary: Henri Veigneur, known within MAVU documentation under the pseudonym Julien Bisset and referred to as Operative Gamma, O3, OP-3, Golf, or most commonly Gamma by his three other squad-mates, is the designated medical specialist and scientific operative of the Praeceps Fireteam.
Veigneur was born on February 7th, 1960 within the city of Marseille, France. His father, Jacques Veigneur, was a notable member of the GIGN counter-terrorism unit within France, having served under the unit since its founding in 1974 up until his death in 1988 when he suffered a fatal gunshot wound and was killed during a tactical assault upon the Ouvéa cave to free twenty-seven hostages taken by the Kanak and Socialist National Liberation Front; Jacques compromised one of two deaths within the hostage-rescue team within the operation, and news of the death reached Henri during his second year at John Hopkins University while studying to earn his medical license as a surgeon. The death of O3's father was, ultimately, the driving motivation behind finishing his studies and returning to France in order to join the GIGN himself.
The selection process for France's most elite counter-terrorism unit was incredibly difficult, with a recorded acceptance rate of 7-8% for all new recruits. Veigneur, however, excelled at both the pre-selection screening and post-selection training period of fourteen months. Marksmanship and general intelligence were both scored highly in official reports and a high aptitude for diplomacy and negotiation was also recorded by instructors. In an effort to carry on the name of his late father, Veigneur was able to gain admittance to the GIGN and began service in 1991. His completion of a medical license allowed him to further any medical research he conducted in addition to his primary service, developing reliable methods of healthcare during combat situations and working on government-funded projects. Veigneur's duty to France, however, came first.
In 1994, the hijacking of Air France Flight 8969 by four GIA terrorists resulted in an extensive standoff between French and Algerian insurgent forces. During the period of negotiations, the GIGN extensively simulated the circumstances of a tubular assault and familiarized themselves with the inner structure and workings of an Airbus A300 aircraft, similar to the vehicle which the GIA terrorists had hijacked. Originally overtaken in Algeria, the plane was flown to Marseille, France wherein preparations for a tactical assault were enacted. GIGN operatives proceeded to storm the plane from both the rear and front facing entrances, killing all four terrorists and resulting in zero hostage deaths. 9 servicemen were injured, including Veigneur himself, who had taken a stray bullet to the thigh.
For over two decades, O3 had reported no major injuries or failures in his service to France under GIGN. Mid-November of 2015, however, marked a tumultuous period in the Île-de-France region after a wave of terrorist attacks were orchestrated, primarily in Paris. Veigneur's unit, in coordination with various other branches of the National Gendarmerie, conducted a series of raids and searches across the northern portion of the country with the intent of flushing out and neutralizing ISIL supporters. One such assault was executed on the 31st of November, when 10 GIGN counter-terrorism operatives breached an abandoned wine refinery and vineyard near Versailles. When engaged in close-quarters combat in the basement of the complex, a terrorist activated his suicide vest, but not before Veigneur had tackled the man and pushed him away from the line of attacking GIGN agents. The resulting blast managed to cave a portion of the ceiling, killing two other terrorists; due to O3's heroic efforts, no French soldiers were killed. Gamma himself, however, had lost both his arms to the mid-bicep as well as his legs to the area just below the knee. Shrapnel from the IED also blinded Henri in his left eye— miraculously, however, Veigneur survived and was subsequently hospitalized.
While he eventually recovered from critical condition, OP-3 was a quadriplegic and wheelchair-bound for approximately 2 and a half years. In the summer of 2018, Veigneur was approached by MAVU and offered a trial for an experimental cybernetics program in the United States— in return, he would enter conditioning for the Praeceps Fireteam.
Henri accepted and had his death faked, with the cause of death being the complications that arose during surgery while hospitalized in Paris. Veigneur was given a new identity— Julien Bisset and offered employment as Head of Research at MAVU, given his wealth of knowledge regarding biomedical fields and accelerated learning capacity. His "new identity includes qualifications both as a medical practitioner and surgeon, having recieved the degree of Master of Medical Science [MMSc].
Standard facial and physical alterations were undergone, as is customary with all Praeceps agents.
