As for who Knight is, Activision has provided the following character bio and backstory for the enigmatic Operator in Black Ops Cold War Season 3.

  • Full Name: Roman Gray
  • Date of Birth: 09/15/1937
  • Faction: Warsaw Pact
  • Blood Type: O+
  • First Language: English
  • Service: Ex-MI6, Perseus

Roman “Knight” Gray enlisted in the army at the age of 18, marking the start of a long and violent military career. Five years later, he was deployed to the Congo as part of the UNOC (United Nations Operation in the Congo) peacekeeping force. Wounded during the Siege of Jadotville, Gray was held as a POW for a month. Upon his return, he was promoted to sáirsint (sergeant), a bright beginning to a soon tarnished reputation.

Gray was soon demoted to Ceannaire (corporal) following the violent disciplining of a subordinate. A year later, he was dishonorably discharged for starting a fight with a superior officer.

In 1965, Gray was recruited by MI6. Fragments of poorly redacted CIA documents suggest he may have been involved in several extrajudicial killings of high-ranking members of foreign intelligence agencies. It was later discovered that Gray was responsible for the wet-work training of an MI6 operative captured during a failed assassination attempt against Soviet leadership.

His MI6 career was terminated in 1980 when Gray was dismissed from service due to "unbecoming" conduct during SIS/MI6 operations carried out in Afghanistan while supporting mujahideen operations against occupying Soviet forces.

With his career in shambles, Knight turned to Perseus. Given free rein to exact his vengeance on everything NATO, he gleefully enlisted.
