Taurus´s name isn´t carried on the rosters of any existing military unit. There is no computer access to his dossier and he is paid through a special fund earmarked for ´Pentagon Pest Control´. This gives him a freedom of operation which G.I. Joe can´t match. It also means that the government can deny everything if he´s caught.
Taurus was a circus acrobat in Europe who did occasional undercover work for Interpol. His circus act involved breaking two-by-fours on his own face, a feat which so impressed the G.I. Joe top brass, he was recruited on the spot. Taurus has been cross-trained in explosive and mountaineering and is fluent in a dozen languages.
“He´s an animal. He stops hockey-pucks with his forehead and opens bottles with his nostrils. Lucky for us, he does everything G.I. Joe HQ tells him!”
