The Renegades have no official status. Their movements and activities are virtually unrestricted. They don´t get any credit when they succeed and everybody denies knowing anything about them when they fail

Red Dog could have had a pro football career as a barefoot placekicker if a defensive lineman hadn´t ground his cleats into the big Samoan´s obtruding toe. The lineman ended up with a broken helmet and a concussion. Red Dog was suspended for excessive roughness. He later worked briefly as a stuntman in “B” movies until he was recruited be G.I. Joe Command.

“The other Renegades think that Red Dog is a handy gun to have along on missions. If they encounter an obstacle of any kind; barricade, tank-trap or phalanx of armed guards, they simply point Red Dog in the appropriate direction, let him go, and wait for the dust to settle.”
