Naomi Hunter
Naomi Hunter

Naomi Hunter is believed to have been born sometime in the late 1970's, little is known about her early years, except that at some point in her young life, her parents were killed during the conflict known as the Rhodesian Bush War. The man who killed her parents, Frank Jaeger, would come across the young girl, now an orphan. Guilt ridden by his actions, and unable to kill the young girl, Jeager would instead adopt the child, and raise her as his sister. Although he would never reveal to her that he was her parents murderer.

The man known as Big Boss, considered by some to be the greatest soldier in the world, would assist the two siblings in emigrating to the United States of America, where Naomi would enter college. She would thrive in this environment, aided by natural intelligence, but especially with a burning desire to learn more about herself, and who she was. Thusly motivating her to specialize and focus on genetics and genetic research, hoping they would help her find answers, and eventually gaining a doctorate in genetics and moving into the specialized field of nanotechnology-based gene therapy.

Frank Jaeger would eventually go on to become Grey Fox, and further on, an ally to Big Boss which lead him into direct conflict with one of his allies and friends Solid Snake. Despite being former allies, the two men would face off, with Jaeger seemingly slain by Snake. This knowledge would eventually make its way to Naomi who would hold great anger and resentment towards Solid Snake for killing her older brother and protector. She would vow revenge and slowly work towards it, even adopting a new identity and alias to do so, that being Naomi Hunter.
