. He's the cyborg killing machine from Metal Gear Solid 4
. He now works for a Private Military Company known as Maverick Security to provide for his wife Rose and their son John.
Raiden's motives for joining Maverick seem to be for the good of his family, but all of this changes when Desperado Enforcement, another PMC, attacks a convoy escorting the prime minister of a wartorn African nation. Raiden attempts to rescue the prime minister, but he is killed by Samuel Rodriguez, a powerful cyborg who then takes Raiden in a duel that ends with Raiden losing his left eye and arm.
